    Idea a button to delete avatars

    Only thing is this method doesn't give you an alphabetical listing of your avatars (which is a headache in itself), unlike when viewing them from the auctions page. Deleting avatars would be nice to have especially because of low-tier daily login avatars and since we keep getting the same bunch of avatars from mystery boxes (which at some point doesn't matter since you end up collecting them all and the items page has a separate list for dupe amounts instead of listing them redundantly). Personally I'd still prefer just being able to only have and choose avatars that I want to use, rather than having a large collection that doesn't necessarily make it more difficult to choose since you can just use your keyboard when choosing an avatar to highlight a specific Pokemon's name, but is just a big eyesore.

    General Pokemon Vortex Memories

    Haha this is a great topic. I remember my entire class playing the game every lesson during school and it was so fun. Those splash Hoppips were a godsend. I think we also used to be able to buy fossils from the Pokemart, can't remember correctly but I think starters were there too? Ancient Pokemon were hilarious to everyone and instead of calling them Ancient Pokemon we called them Poop Pokemon. Remember we could battle admin accounts and if I recall, they were over-levelled and Mystic, it honestly felt like their Mystic pokes would avoid attacks 70% of the time instead of 25%. Then we got word that our accounts got deleted and pretty much everyone quit except a couple of us that re-made newer accounts a few months later but stopped playing anyway. I was reminded of it last year and started playing again, got a couple of my mates to join too. The old days always feel so great and nostalgic, it was kind of like Pokemon Go before Pokemon Go existed, just limited to my school.

    Answered Nickname

    Previously you would have to ask an admin like Patrick to reset the nickname of your Pokemon for you (because Moderators couldn't do it themselves), however due to overwhelming amounts of requests he has stopped doing so and has stated that you must wait for the reset nickname feature to be implemented in a future update. However, you can simply rename the Pokemon to it's original name yourself, for example: 'Pineapple Duck' can be renamed to 'Dark Ludicolo' (assuming that Pineapple Duck is a Dark Ludicolo). However, the Pokemon's original name that you want it to be reset to mustn't include brackets, such as 'Flabebe (Blue)', as that is against nickname rules.

  8. Just because it only benefits a small subset of players doesn't mean it shouldn't be implemented, lol. If anything, it might encourage more unboxing as it lowers the tediousness of claiming large amounts of (arguably worthless) codes, such as balls and small money codes. I agree with Razor and like the idea of categorical claiming. If you've ever tried claiming and sorting through such a large amount of codes, I'm sure you'd understand as well.

    Idea Pokedex Achievements

    Achievements have already been confirmed for development/implementation, however, I still think this is a nice idea for an achievement.
  10. I'm not too sure if such a feature has been asked for before, but regardless, I think with the current state of mystery boxes it would not hurt to bring up again. If possible, I believe a native method of trading/exchanging promo codes should be implemented within the game. Currently, the only way of safely exchanging promo codes within the game is through Pokebay, which provides users with only one form of currency to use, Pokedollars. This completely ignores such a large portion of the game, trading. With the introduction of monthly rotations of events in mystery boxes (the contents of which are given in the form of promo codes), a large number of users who do not have the money for auctions but may have valuable Pokemon for trade are forced to put their trust into other users who have promo codes of their own for trade, opening themselves up to the possibility of an easy scam. This is also the case for users who have promo codes of a Pokemon of a specific variant that they would like to swap for another promo code of a different variant. There are multiple ways through which this feature could be implemented that I can currently think of off the top of my head(some of which I am not sure may be possible to implement, however), for example: - Allowing users to put promo codes up for trade while also allowing users to offer promo codes on pokemon/other promo codes up for trade - Having some sort of virtual/automated middleman that can hold onto promo codes and can accept or decline offers of Pokemon or other promo codes based on the user's action (this is pretty much the same as the previous method except that if the previous method is difficult/not possible to implement due to some kind of difference in the way Pokemon and promo codes are handled, it could be done this way) - Packaging a promo code into some kind of gift catapult that will only deliver to another user if said user has a gift catapult containing the desired Pokemon/item in a promo code (this would probably be too confusing for users) I think the most obvious choice (but I can only assume potentially the most difficult to implement since it isn't already ingame) would be the first method, as it would work with an existing system that does not seem to pose any visible exploits if implemented properly. It would also be the most understandable for users as they would be comfortable using a system they are used to. I probably haven't put as much thought into this as I should have but I think it should be addressed because of the recent mystery box change. Hearing other ideas/methods, criticism, disadvantages etc. would be nice. Sorry for the wall of text, what do you guys think?

    Idea rename

    I've heard that when the premium membership subscription is available in store, one of the perks is being able to rename Pokemon that you are not the original trainer of, so you'll probably have to wait until then and buy the subscription yourself or ask someone who already has to rename your Pokemon. Edit: "Premium subscriptions come with the following perks as long as your subscription is active: ... You can nickname Pokémon in-game that you are not the original trainer (OT) of. "
