Exactly! Lately, there have been rumours about strange coloured Pokemon all around Kanto. It was rather rare occurance, so many believed it was a myth. Homever, thanks to you, hatching eggs, and the research of Professor Birch, we have proved that those strange-coloured Pokemon were indeed real. We call them Shiny Pokemon. Apparently, there is a small possibility, that those shinies will hatch from eggs, just like the regular ones did! We think that since we don't see them so often, they could be really rare...
Here are a few of preview shots of them:
The fact, that Pokemon is shiny does not always make him look better. Indeed, some species became way beautiful than regular version. Some became really ugly though. Some are plain strange.
We have compiled all the pictures of Shiny Pokemon, that were sent from trainers all over the world, and added them to your dex. In next few days you will also be able to get system update, adding small shiny-related functions.http://www.virtuadopt.com/dex.php
So, what are you waiting for? Go hatch those eggs!
From technical things, some of the old images of Virtuadopts have been changed to better ones. You may encounter yet the old ones, but their image will get rebuilt after feeding them/changing their details in PC.
As for the shiny art, it is result of mine work, with help of yankeesrule3526. I am not experienced artist, so not all recolours went like I expected them to. They should be in colours defined by Nintendo, so don't complain if you don't like the color set of your favourite Pokemon
I would also like to welcome two new members of moderation staff: Shadow
, and stream
. I definitely needed more people to deal with usual forum stuff, while I am busy with other things, so I accepted them - homever, only for a test time - I want to know how they do their job, first. I still liked a few more candidates, but two is enough for now.
We have also signed to Project Wonderful, an advertisement system. The pros are simple - advertisement onsite would help this site... maybe even help buy a better host, if this one will reach its limit (so far we are endangered on mySQL error every few hours, due to mySQL overload). The cons are also there - it sits down there, looking ugly. We will decide whether we want an ad in such form.
