a new year brings new expectations. civil unrest starts to manifest in the form of online criticisms that spike after the three day war. now that the region no longer has to face the threat of megalopolans, the people of hoenn turn to address smaller and more personal issues. will the league rise up to the situation? what about questionable events that have transpired, overshadowed and overlooked in the face of more imminent issues?
after the ultra beast war, hoenn begins to heal. the megalopolan invasion may have failed; however, it is clear there is much more at stake. a prophecy revolving around a cyclical meteoroid, the appearance of necrozma and a dangerous and viral alien threaten the safety of the region once more.
with rocket's new boss, the resurgence and reappearance of the crime syndicate's presence is imminent. the league has done its best to repair its reputation, and with the victory of a war under their belt, perhaps it is enough. but the seeds of distrust have already been sown in the ravaged land of this region, causing many to wonder what will grow?
THE SAFARI ZONE is a special pokemon preserve on route 121. for a fee, trainers are allowed to enter the rich and varied environments in order to capture a curated selection of pokemon that may be distinguished from ordinary wild pokemon. in other words, safari pokemon will have mostly possess their hidden abilities, 5-6 moves, egg moves, and have a higher chance of being shiny.[break][break][break]
SAFARI ZONE PROTOCOL
PLEASE READ THE RULES BELOW before entering the safari zone. Entering without doing so may cause the warden to kick you out![break][break][break]
for 50 pokedollars, you will be able to enter the safari zone with three safari balls.
if your character has at least 30 infamy, they will be able to enter the safari zone with four safari balls.
post in the site shop to state that you will be purchasing a safari zone ticket. afterward, go ahead and make the thread. a staff member will eventually deduct the 50 pokedollars from the account.
after you create your safari thread, post in requests for a moderator to spawn your pokemon. post in requests again after you have encountered the pokemon and desire another spawn.
you may flee, battle or catch your spawned pokemon. however, the safari warden would ask trainers to refrain from using destructive attacks to protect the landscaping.
if you use all three (or four, if you have 30 infamy) safari balls, the safari warden will summon you and the thread will be completed.
if your thread is not completed by the safari selection refresh, the safari warden will eventually summon you and the thread will be forcibly completed if too much time has elapsed since the refresh.
completed safari threads do not net you completed thread rewards; however, there is a safari-related award.
SAFARI ZONE SETTING
WITH EVERY CYCLE, the safari zone often renovates their grounds to provide the best experience for prospective sarafists. Although the default safari zone setting is a myriad of biomes and environments, occasionally, the safari zone will remodel for the holidays to best fit the theme of their pokemon.[break][break][break]
FOR THE CURRENT SAFARI SELECTION, trainers will be embarking on an adventure across a large plain at night. rivers lit with paper lanterns and adorned by beautiful red steel bridges. occasionally, trainers may find themselves walking through temples, shrines, and more, dedicated to pokemon deities and adorned with bovine-related fixings.[break][break][break]
Of course, the safari zone's base layout filled with other varied, natural settings is available for trainers to traverse and hunt in.[break][break][break]
period of availability: until february 28th, 11:59PM PST (subject to change)[break][break]
