As Pokémon Vortex gets older, it's visibly clear by Pokémon IDs and the infuriating "That username is not available" notice that the database grows and grows at a rapid rate. What does this mean? Nothing special really but some of you, like myself, love seeing random little statistics that are calculated and achieved over time so that's what we're here for - Here's some number crunching and milestones reached by Pokémon Vortex in the last 10 years and here's to 10 more beautiful years of Pokémon Vortex! 2009 - 2014 (v1 - v2) 2,817,404 accounts were registered 83,901,600 Pokémon were caught 12,408,733 trades were completed 16,001 players joined the last event 120,000+ Facebook likes accumulated 6,000 Twitter followers accumulated 2014 - 2019 (v3 - v4) 1,113,782 accounts were registered 24,637,964 Pokémon were caught/claimed 198,786 Pokémon were released 526,582,392,322 experience was trained on Pokémon 5,137,089 happiness hearts were obtained on Pokémon 208,101,934 battles were won 6,397,405 battles were lost 4,130,926,739.6 points were accumulated $109,944,664,607 is currently unspent 1,684,032 Wonder Trades were completed 8,069,399 regular trades were completed Pokémon Vortex's Discord server got partnered 2,037,288 daily login rewards were claimed 171,389 eggs were hatched in the Christmas Hatchathon event The Spin2Win event slot machine was spun 8,326,240 times 2,768 players managed to score 1 or more point in the Magikarp Splash April Fool's event $28,367,705,734 was taken in PokéBay tax $283,534,381,082 was spent on PokéBay auctions 1,517,803 PokéBay auctions were created 1,893,699 bids were placed 63,359 auctions were added to players watch lists 974,833 PokéBay auctions went unsold (Lower your prices, people!) 653,579 avatars were unlocked 1,194,837 promo codes were distributed 739,193 promo codes were claimed 216,226 friends were made 498,660 followers were accumulated 29,581 friend requests went unanswered : ( 19,957 players were blocked 2,307 Players linked their Pokémon Vortex account to their Discord account 8,379 Clans were founded 34,252 players joined forces as a clan 7,477 players were kicked from clans 974,899 clan battles were victorious 15,982 clan battles were lost 1,347,641 messages were sent 17,499 Pokémon were nicknamed A fun little hypothetical one I worked out: If every Pokémon's experience was combined to one Pokémon and there was no maximum level cap, That Pokémon would be a whopping Level 1,053,164,784 Sorry there aren't more statistics pre-v3
Scheduled Maintenance & Changes to Badges On Monday July 13th at 16:00 BST, Pokémon Vortex will be going down for maintenance for approximately two hours. During this maintenance a new system will be put in to place that changes how badges and legendary Pokémon spawns work on players accounts. In preparation for gen 8 to be added to Pokémon Vortex, you will now only be required to finish a specific region's badges to find legendary Pokémon that originate from that region. For example, you will only need the 8 gym badges from Johto to be able to find Entei, Raikou, Suicune, Ho-oh, Lugia and Celebi on the maps. Elite 4s, Champions and Battle Frontiers are no longer part of the legendary unlock criteria and have been separated to their own battle category called "Leagues" as well as no longer showing their completion status in the badges section of public profiles viewed in the members side tab. The Kalos Battle Maison has been removed completely. Medals for each region will be visible on your private profile pages to signify whether or not you have unlocked that region's legendary Pokémon spawns. (They will be grayed out and blurred if you have not yet unlocked it. They also have info on hover that will tell you more)
Scheduled Maintenance & Changes to Eevee On Wednesday June 3rd at 10:00am BST, Pokémon Vortex will be going down for maintenance for approximately two hours. During this maintenance, the only noticeable change upon being able to log in again will be the changes that are being made to Eevee's evolution methods which are the following: Eevee will now evolve into Leafeon using a Leaf Stone instead of a Moss Rock Eevee will now evolve into Glaceon using an Ice Stone instead of an Ice Rock Why are these changes happening? When Leafeon and Glaceon were first introduced into Pokémon Vortex, their evolution methods were based as closely as possible to their evolution methods of Diamond and Pearl which was to level up Eevee near a Moss or Ice rock in the world to evolve to the respective Eeveelution. In generation 8 of Pokémon (Sword & Shield) this seems to have been changed to now use items that already existed and have other uses which suits Pokémon Vortex well as we can now remove the items Moss & Ice Rock since they only had that one single use; to evolve Eevee. Notes: You will have until this maintenance period to use up any excess of these items you may have. From the date of this notice, you will no longer be able to list these items for sale on PokéBay.
