  1. Starting November 1st 2018, the Pokémon contents of Mystery Boxes will be changed monthly to resolve two issues within Pokémon Vortex's trade and auction economy. The first issue being that some old event Pokémon are impossible to obtain due to very low numbers of them existing. The second issue is that the current Mystery Box Pokémon drop of Rotom forms are too high and rapidly lose value as more boxes are obtained and opened. SO, the change, effective immediately will be that old event Pokémon (but not seasonal event Pokémon such as Halloween or Christmas) will be rotated through Mystery Boxes monthly starting off with November's Mystery Box Pokémon - Volcanion This Pokémon will be rotated out of Mystery Boxes on December 1st 2018 and so on on monthly intervals. Here is a list of the following changes through to the end of January 2019: November 1st 2018 - November 30th 2018 - December 1st 2018 - December 31st 2018 - January 1st 2019 - January 31st 2019 Hopefully these continued changes monthly will make these Pokémon more widely available over time.
  2. As promised, as of Pokémon Vortex v4, we will be getting smaller but more frequent updates rather than storing everything for one large update. SO, here is the first update notes for v4.1.x - This update is expected to launch on December 7th 2017 What's new? You can now "watch" auctions with a new watch list so you know how an auction went even after it ended You can now refresh an auction you're actively viewing from the PokéBay navigation for ease of access People who place in the top 100 of a season will have their best rank (over all time) displayed on their public and private profiles Messages saved in your sent folder will now display if the recipient has read the message or not You can now put a Pokémon up for auction as soon as you catch it from the end battle navigation Promo codes in your inventory can now be redeemed in single clicks from within the inventory "Quick bidding" has been added to auctions - Submit the bid entry empty and it will automatically bid the recommended amount Bug Fixes Relisting items from an unsold auction will no longer throw an error (Unless you no longer have the item) Renaming a Pokémon that already has a nickname will no longer throw an error The tooltip info of items on the bottom of the Pokémart list are no longer hidden behind the site footer The Pokédex side tab will now display the correct number of duplicate Pokémon collected Darumaka's evolution split has been fixed Shadow Croagunk's backsprite has been corrected Missing back sprites for Arceus (Fairy) have been added Missing PokéBay image for Red Orb has been added Many of the ajax menus have had their links adjusted so the whole button triggers the link rather than just the text Multiple display & text fixes Game Balances Bidding on an auction now requires minimum increments based on the current price of the auction Premium avatars now have a star identifier in auctions and inventory so you can tell them apart Sandygast has been added to the grass maps in the sand/water section (Maps 3, 6, & 9) Removals The "duration" column when viewing auction lists has been removed from most places as showing the end date is sufficient enough
  3. Pokemon Vortex V4 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS) Welcome to the official Pokemon Vortex V4 FAQs! With the introduction of V4 we have been treated to some fantastic new features such as a clan update, avatars and nicknaming Pokemon. As everyone is eager to experience these features, we have put together this helpful document. This FAQs has been split into categories for easy browsing. Press Ctrl + F to find something specific. Avatars What is an avatar? An avatar is an image, in this case of a Pokemon, that you can use to represent yourself. How do I obtain avatars? Avatars can be obtained, or unlocked, in a variety of ways. They are provided as sidequest prizes, daily login prizes and you can buy them from PokeBay. Avatars can also be gained by buying and opening “mystery boxes”. How can I use my avatars? You can browse and select an avatar for use by viewing “your profile” and selecting one from the drop down list underneath the “avatar” header. PokeBay PokeBay is a virtual auction house, working much like many others across the internet. It provides users with an opportunity to buy and sell any items, Pokemon or avatars across Pokemon Vortex. Any item can be put up for auction, allowing players the chance to bid on, and win some exclusive and otherwise unobtainable items. How do I put something up for auction? In order to put something up for auction, you must first go to the “PokeBay” page. This can be done by clicking “your account” and then “PokeBay auctions”. The next step is to click “start auction” where you will be given the option of selecting what it is you would like to sell. Simply chose either “Pokemon”, “item”, “avatar” or “promo code” and select which of these you intend to auction. Finally, chose a duration for your auction and a start price. The start price can be no lower than 25,000. How can I bid? Simply select “Browse Auctions” and you will be able to see all the auctions that are currently available. In order to bid, click on the item/pokemon/avatar you want and enter an amount. The amount must be higher than the previous bid. I just lost an auction, will I get my money back? Absolutely, your money will be returned to you if you lose an auction. Your money is also returned to you every time you are outbid. Nicknaming Pokemon How do I nickname my Pokemon? You can nickname your pokemon by viewing “Your Pokemon Team” and clicking the icon that resembles a pencil. You can then enter any nickname you like, and press “Submit”. Nicknaming a Pokemon costs 20,000. Help! I can’t nickname my Pokemon! You can only nickname a Pokemon if you are the original trainer (OT). Trying to nickname a Pokemon that you are not the OT of will result in this message: “Sorry, you need to be the Original Trainer of a Pokémon to nickname it.” Why isn’t nicknaming instant? Before a nickname is visible, it must be approved by a moderator. While there is usually always a moderator online, we’re very busy people, so the time scale of approval may vary. My nickname wasn’t approved, why? If your nickname was denied by a moderator, it either contained profanity or was otherwise inappropriate. Deliberately submitting profane nicknames will result in you no longer having the capability to use this feature. New Clans How do I join a clan? You can join a clan by either browsing the “clans” section, and choosing one by clicking on it, or if you receive a clan invitation. You can browse and accept these by clicking “requests” at the top of the page. How do you delete a clan? If you are the leader of a clan, and would like to delete it you must first remove all the members. Once you are the final member of the clan, click “leave clan” and the clan will be automatically disbanded (deleted). I am the leader of a clan, but don’t want to delete it. However, I would like to leave it. It is now possible to pass the leadership role on to another member of your clan. You can do this by viewing you clan, and selecting a new role for each member using the drop down list underneath the “options” header. Once you have selected a new leader, you are free to leave your clan. What is a skills branch? Each clan has a skills branch. Grass, water and fire are currently available as a skills branch upon creation. These will be features that are developed in the near future. Ultra Beasts What is an Ultra Beast? Rarer than a legendary, Ultra Beasts are new Pokemon introduced to Vortex. The following Ultra beasts are currently available: Nihilego, Pheromosa, Buzzwole, Xurkitree, Kartana, Celesteela and Guzzlord. How can I catch an Ultra Beast? Catching an Ultra Beast will take a lot of patience, due to their rarity. Once you have found one, an Ultra Beast can only be caught using a “beast ball” or a "Vortex ball". No other method of capture will work. Where can I get beast balls? Beast balls are a possible prize once completing the Alola sidequests. You may also be lucky enough to find them using PokeBay, depending on whether users choose to auction these rare balls. Where can I get Vortex Balls? Vortex balls can be obtained by "Mystery Boxes" which you an buy from the store. You may also be lucky enough to find them on PokEbay. Where can I find an Ultra Beast? Ultra Beasts can be found across the maps, and do not depend on the night and day cycle. They can be found at any time during the day or night. Please see the location guide for the exact location of each Ultra Beast. Night and Day Cycle How can I make it night/day time on the maps? The night and day cycle is now automatic. There is no option to change it yourself. The cycle changes according to server time, which can be seen at the top of the page.
  4. The time is drawing near! v4 has been under the testing phase for roughly 2 weeks now and so it's about time you all got to see what's new, what's changed, what's gone and what's fixed.

  5. So with Pokémon Vortex v4 never drawing nearer at an impeccably slow pace There comes an important decision to make... What should the fourth starter Pokémon be for the Alolan region? Vote in the poll and the winner will be put into place.
  6. To avoid confusion here's some clear-up about v4. No, you will NOT have to restart anything. v3 accounts will carry over to v4 with everything you have from Pokémon to badges. Yes you will have the same usernames and passwords. There is no release date set, this is just a teaser to let you know it is in the works and has been for a short while now. Send us cake and we'll work on it a lot quicker. We like cake.
