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 TOS EVENT HAS FINALLY CONCLUDED. fighting and dark-type perks have concluded alongside tos-related events such as the cram-o-matic and the tower challenges. at this event's conclusion, there are several things to consider and to take heed of, so please read below if you have participated in the event.[break][break][break]
tos limited missions have now been archived. however, if you are still in the middle of a tos mission, do not fret. you can complete them at any time.[break][break][break]
the safari zone selection connected with the tos event will also be cycled out; however, characters still in safari zone threads on the tos rotation of pokemon will have until july 20th, 11:59pm pst to complete them. if they are not completed by then, the threads will be forcibly closed (the safari warden will call your character back!).[break][break][break]
if you need a reminder, the tos safari selections were the following:[break][break]
when you post in the site shop, please link to your character's post in the endeavor thread. as a note, please ensure that the endeavor checklist is filled out thoroughly, including links to applicable threads or posts. furthermore, in your site shop post, ensure that you list what rewards you are able to redeem (e.g. pd, infamy, items, etc.).[break][break][break]
lastly, if you have been able to complete all endeavors, your character will be able to redeem a single strike or rapid strike headband.[break][break][break]
tower challenge - kubfu/urshifu
if your group was able to successfully complete the tower challenge, you will have amassed a variety of rewards. you can count the items as automatically redeemed (no need to post in site shop, unless you are using the gachapon ticket); however, there is some important information to consider about the kubfu prize.[break][break][break]
as a reminder, the kubfu's moveset can be chosen as if it were a gachapon pokemon. next, the kubfu can only evolve by using a single strike headband or rapid strike headband that has been redeemed from the endeavor lists. a single strike headband will cause the kubfu to evolve into a single strike urshifu while a rapid strike headband will cause a kubfu to evolve into a rapid strike urshifu. to evolve them, please redeem the headband in the site shop as you would a normal evolution item.[break][break][break]
these evolved urshifu can mega evolve (into their gigantamax forms), as a note. however, this requires a mega stone.[break][break][break]
if you do not have a kubfu, you can redeem the headband for a monetary reward of 500 PD instead. do note, you are able to gift headbands instead, if you so desire. these headbands then, will have the special distinction of being the only items you can trade/gift.[break][break][break]
lastly, you can not possess more than one kubfu/urshifu. this special type of pokemon will not obey its trainer should there be another one of its litter within the trainer's possession. these kubfu have been bred with an incredible loyalty to one trainer— and will not share the spotlight with another cub. however, you are allowed to trade this pokemon to others should you desire.
