Johto release, finally!

Postby stefanol » September 10th, 2009, 11:10 pm

It's 11th of September. In Japan, it is the day the long-waited Pokémon Gold/Silver remakes are being released on Nintendo DS. For Virtuadopt, it is the day of big update. :king:

Probably the biggest part of the update worth mentioning, is the release of Johto Generation Pokémon. For the past few weeks, our team was working on preparing everything, ranging from coding everything needed, through recolouring existant art to shiny, up to drawing new Virtuadopts. And here we are, ready to allow people getting the Pokémon from Johto region.
ImageImageImage

The basic forms are joining the earlier species in eggs in Adoption Center. The others, well it may take more, or less hassle to get them. Along with new species, some parts of the site got a little revamped.

1. The biggest add to the site is opening of Daycare Center. Here, you may leave two Virtuadopts. For small amount of money (paid in advance, duh), our specialists up there train them, and hatch left eggs. Every an hour you may see the progress. Moreover, if you leave two different gendered Virtuadopts, they have small chance to mate, and you may get an egg from them. You may either breed two same species (the chance of getting an egg is a little bigger), or species being in the same egg group (the chance is waaaay lower then).

2. Feeding system is exactly the same, yet now, everytime you click, besides having a possibility to get promotional birds, you may get as well one of three roaming dogs: Raikou, Entei, and Suicune.
ImageImageImage

It is worth mentioning, that there is the word the birds may become extinct soon. There is one downside connected with feeding, which is temporary removing of quick feed link (which was to be used with external click exchanges). Apparently, some people misbehaved, and abused that system, the same way it was abused before introducing the two-step feeding. It is yet unknown whether it will return (and if it will, there will be a restriction of some kind).

3. The Pokédex system has been revised a little. On main page, you have listed Pokémon from both regions, on top of the page you also have a possibility to choose between Kanto, and Johto Region. There has been also added possibility to view user rankings, ranging from "Top 50 users with the most overall unique Pokémon", to "Top 50 Virtuadopts with the highest levels". Most of the rankings are being updated every 24h. On Pokédex details screen, there have been added arrows to allow easier navigating. On the bottom, you may also view Evolution Chain of each species - with small note regarding what you should do to receiver certain one (most people know it already, yet some people don't).

4. Mart received new, Johto exclusive items - both equippable, and 'injectable'. They are needed to evolve certain species of Pokémon.

5. Pokémon Center got a litle revamped detail screen - the equipping, and displaying of items were moved to apropriate section. Small Control Panel has been added there as well, allowing you to name your 10 boxes (like some people requested). The names of the boxes are being displayed upon hovering over box number.

6. GTS received also a small update, grouping Virtuadopts into boxes on Offer/Make New Trade subpages. GTS is also needed to perform some trade, and trade+item evolutions.

7. The user side profile got updated with new items as well. And we also have a new banner, being displayed simultaneously with the old one.

8. As I mentioned earlier, Virtuadopt definitely needs lately new moderators. I'd like to welcome two new additions to our team, Ellie, and Chaosninja. Big applaud for them :)

9. In the footer of Virtuadopt, there appeared small PayPal button. If you are having fun with us, and would like to contribute, and help in maintaing the site, feel free to donate any amount of money. It is nothing obligatory, nothing demanded. Any donators will have their names listed in credits subpage.

whew, that would be it. I hope I lived up to the hype I caused :)

I would like to thank all of my staff, that helped in every way. Nautilus, for her amazing drawings, available to see in Virtuadopts form already, yankeesrule3526, Shadow, stream, for helping me with recolours, and of course regular modding; and of course you, users, for making this site active.

tl;dr:JOHTO RELEASE LOL

Also congrats Ellie and Chaosninja.. YAY! I think you made a very wise decision in making these two mods. :3

Ooh. New pokemon. Yay! :D

Oh and I really love the evolution chain shown in pokedex. I was wondering how to get the baby pokemon like Pichu and Igglybuff.

And some of my faves are here: Togepi and Teddiursa.


Just a question though: could any of my 25 eggs evolve into these new pokemon?
