Recommended Posts

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!

:><:munchlax is a psycho.The nicknaming thing didn't last for long because munchlax threatened arceus, munclax hates arceus :( 

Munchlax: Remove all your nicknames you filthy arceus or i'm gonna steal your  lottery tickets food

Arceus: sir please don't do that,i didn't know that....

Munchlax: Oh,shut up you've been told not to do that countless times.


And like that i could not nickname anything :(

Has it really been that long? I remember when Pokemon Crater went down and I was devastated, not long after Pokemon Vortex came into existence and help fill that void. I've have been playing since v1. So what I have to say is thank you Patrick and the rest of the PV team!
