Introducing Everstones! + few words :)

Postby stefanol » April 8th, 2009, 12:54 am

Okay, some things changed in current system. You can no longer "freeze" unlimited amount of Virtuadopts. Instead, you can give them an Everstone.

What is an Everstone? It's a stone, which instead of evolving Pokemon (as opposing to Evolutionary Stones), prevents them from evolution.

Image


Everstone can be bought for 200$ from Mart. And, as previously, it is applicable via "Pokemon Center"->Edit Pokemon function.

Those people, that had some of Virtuadopts frozen, lucked out - magically their Virtuadopts received their own Everstones. You can either leave them with stones, or take the stones away.

In the morning of GMT, there will be also small change in the way of how Everstone works - you will no longer be available to freeze eggs, but instead your Virtuadopts will gain levels (just won't be able to evolve).

On a side note, it has been a week since I opened the Virtuadopt to the public. We have got over 500 members, nearly 5 thousands of Virtuadopts were adopted, and you have fed them nearly 200 000 times! That are some pretty impressive results. Thanks for joining, it's thanks to you, that this site lives :king:

The Promotional Shiny Mew retires in 10 hours. Make sure you claim yours, if you hadn't yet.

I thought Everstones would come...

And, wow, those are some amazing stats. O:

And 10 hours? I feel bad for the first person to sign up after it retires... D:

Whoa...impressive stats are impressive...

From what you said in that post, your new system makes more sense since that's more in line with how the game works. pokemon in the games that hold everstones can still gain levels after all.

As for buying them, that also makes sense since you need items, and only 1 pokemon can hold 1 everstone, so you need multiple everstones if you want to stop evolution on more than 1 pokemon, if that made any sense.

so yeah, very nice stef. *nods*

Thanks so much for adding this feature, it's great! It also gives us something else to spend our $$ on. I also just wanted to say my thanks to you, all the staff members, and users for making this site possible. This truly is my favorite site to be on, and I have not been here even a full day yet. I really hope this site lives long, I plan on being with it until the end. I'm also so glad I got here today, I really lucked out, since only around 10 hours until the promo mew is gone.
? To who those are wondering about my Pokemon: No, I did not get hacked.
I feel this life is more important than material possessions. ?

Okay, I implemented another planned functionality of Everstone.

Instead of saying something along "Virtuadopt wants to stay the same way", it just informs you that this Virtuadopt holds an Everstone. It can normally receive levels, homever, it won't evolve.

Also, eggs can't hold everstones anymore.

@Peppe : The promo was for the opening of the site.. Probably, a new promo may come when an event is up or we are celebrating something. XD

Thanks a lot for the updates Stefanol! ^_^

To make Virtuadopts holding Everstones more "visible", holded item is rendered along with your Virtuadopt.

Well, I can always remove it ;)

I did it inb4 people would say that they don't know which of their Virtuadopts hold which item, without checking every single of them in Pokemon Center (especially when more items would appear).

Im not sure I just doesnt like it there. And then I would always have to have it when I get my favorite pokemon(Wartortle). =/

It would be awesome if you could remove it but I dont want to ruin it for everyone else. :(
