Trivia Going Away

Post by yankeesrule3526 » March 17th, 2019, 1:29 pm

In 2 weeks, Trivia will be permanently closed. Team Rocket is relocating their Shadow Pokémon operations to a new hideout, but thousands of Pokémon have already been saved by players like you!

Scents are no longer available for purchase from the Mart. Also, you can no longer win scents from the slot machine. All existing scents will need to be used before April 1. After that time, they will no longer be usable and are gone forever.

Ha, I thought the same XD
But it's a good way to remind us of using some of the scents.

I just got a wrong answer, although I'm pretty sure I answered correctly. So far everytime I got a wrong answer I wasn't sure about it anyway, so this is the first time I challenged the answer. Let's see what happens!

EDIT: Okay, I just got the same question again.
Spoiler:
The question was in which game Mew can learn fake out.
The first time I answered "Pokemon XD", which was wrong, the second time I just answered "XD", which was correct. :/

I'm not sure if I like this. On the one side, I wanted to collect enough cash to buy the expenciest spray, when I finished my breeding stuff for another user, since 100k are very, very much for me. On the other side, this would mean no more sprays in the congratz and higher chances to get a promo instead of only a spray. Which is, in the end, better, I think. But still, it's a bit sad.

The chances for a promo are the same, whether there are sprays or not. The sprays and the 1000$ are just additional prizes.

Hm... I hope there will be a new way for us to get Shadow Pokemon... But I have my Meowth, which is all I could have ever wanted, so if Shadow Pokemon are retired forever I won't be TOO upset... :D

I wish we knew about this before it was removed from the mart :/
I have a lot more money now than i did a few months ago (thanks for the lottery btw)
anyways i hope there wont a shadow dex because thats going to drive me insane that i didnt get all of them when i had the chance XD

EDIT it seems that the site first was open to the public on April 1st so I think the whole site is getting a revamp or new features ;)

I don't know ... I always had the feeling that I get more of these sprays than a promo when I finally got an congratz again^^°
Which was kinda annoying.

Well, maybe the chances for the sprays were higher than those for promos, but removing the sprays won't increase the promo chances.
You can think of it like playing two different (real life) lotteries at the same time. Your chances of winning lottery 1 won't increase just because you stop playing lottery 2, since one doesn't have anything to do with the other.

I see what you mean, but I see it more like this:
In an old congratz, you were able to get a promo or a spray.
Now theres only the promo.

That's what I meant.

Oh, so the dream of a shadow Dragonite with my OT died. Sad. And probably the dream to finish the shadow 'dex', too.
I couldn't really effort the 100k sprays so I had to count on my luck. Never had it, until now. So I'm a little bit sad now. :'c

But I'm okay with it, I guess. I had enough time. :|

The more I think about it, the more I hope there will be a new way to get Shadow Pokemon... I found them really useful in trading for older promos I had no chance of getting otherwise. Because Shadow Pokemon were pretty freely available but randomized, it was a good way for a newer/more casual player like me to get something worth trading if I wasn't lucky enough to hatch a shiny I didn't want to keep.

Note the wording: The Shadows are being relocated somewhere else.
That must mean they are not permanently going away based on the choice of words used.

Off topic but very relevant info:
You know how feeding people's boxes has recently become easier with one click? If you hold the CTRL key and click, it'll open that thing in a new tab and it'll be taken care of, and you can quickly open as many tabs as your computer can handle. This is good information to know since you can sift through a bunch of opened tabs quickly with CRTL+Tab to see if you got any Congratzes.
