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?
http://pkmn-hoenn.boards.net/38. TOWERS OF STRENGTH
a faction-based pokemon roleplay
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?
UNEARTHLY UNDERSTUDIES FINALLY ENDS. with the beauty contest concluded and the "roots of the matter" raid close to finishing, it is time for a shift into summer. unfortunately, fairy-type perks will end tonight at midnight (6/7 12AM) to make way for the next event cycle: "towers of strength."[break][break][break]
this new event cycle focuses on FIGHTING & DARK types, so this is a fantastic time to hunt for pokemon of those respective typings. in particular, you may see the event's perks below:[break][break][break]
fighting & dark-type perks
enjoy this one-two combo of perks! enjoy discounts, luckier encounters and more on the site:[break][break]
fighting & dark-type pokemon have their evolutions discounted by 50%.
fighting & dark-type pokemon have a higher chance of possessing 5 moves, egg moves, hidden abilities, and being shiny.
further events may arrive; however, preliminary ideas are outlined below.
as noted above, this event period will run until july 13th, 12:00AM PST; however, it is quite possible that the event duration will be extended considering current world events.[break][break][break]
TOS EVENT ACTIVITIES
DURING THIS EVENT CYCLE, there may be a variety of activities to engage in. Although there will be no big raid or faction-based event, I hope the brainstormed ideas below may intrigue you if they come into fruition![break][break][break]
first, there are endeavour lists your characters can attempt to clear. there will be two endeavour lists, but you will only be able to select one, to reflect the upcoming dlc for pokemon sword & shield and the tower of darkness/tower of water. you can find them here:[break][break]
[break][break] WANT TO TEST YOUR LUCK? the cram-o-matic, an ooc reward dispenser, is here! insert "ingredients" in the form of items or threads in exchange for more items. of course, there is some luck involved, for the machine is still undergoing its experimental period. if you would like to gamble for prizes, click here: [x][break][break][break]
THE TOWER CHALLENGE
[break][break] A NEW TEST OF STRENGTH arrives on to hoenn. by partnering with several other characters and their pokemon, the league has devised a tower of battles for you. reach the top of the tower to receive a special reward. however, it won't be as easy as you think. you will be able to use a variety of your pokemon from your pcs in order to defeat the challenges present in each level. rolls will also be used.[break][break][break]

ACTIVITY CHECK & UPDATES
UPDATES FOR THE FUTURE! the june activity check will be up shortly. the requirements to pass this will be lenient as always due to current world events, so don't worry and don't stress about it! stay tuned for it in the "announcements board"![break][break][break]
update: the activity check has ended! thank you for your prompt posting.[break][break][break]
next, summer will possibly feature a pokeathlon event! although the tokyo olympics may be cancelled, we can bring the spirit of it here. there may still be tie-ins with the overall site plot, but then again, what event hasn't been truly tied with it?[break][break][break]
