The Gyms are now OPENagain! With the reopening of the gyms,
we have made a few new changes!
First, we have raised the level caps for trainers to be 5 ABOVE the level of the leader. If the gym leader has lvl 20 pokemon, you can have up to lvl 25. We decided to make this change because the lower gyms are hard to defeat if you have to battle at the same level as the gym leader.
Second, we have added two new ranks to the gyms: Gym Elders! Gym Elders can faciliate and substitute for the 4 gyms they control; Tier 1 controls the first four, Tier 2 controls the second. If you see them on and a certian gym leader is not on, you can ask them to sub for that gym for you!
Finally, we have changed and added a couple rules to the gym system!
1. For a gym battle, you can have up to one legendary now.
2. Anyone who sucessfully defeats all eight gyms will become eligible for special tournaments in the future.
3. Anyone who sucessfully defeats all eight gyms gets placed in a higher priority spot to become a gym leader. HOWEVER, this doesn't mean you are guaranteed a staff position.
4. As mentioned above, player level caps are now 5 levels higher.
5. New format!
With these new changes, we hope that gym battles become more exciting and stand out as more of a goal on the server!
As many of you have noticed, Mojang has just added username changes to Minecraft! This allows you to change your IGN that you made a long time ago! However, since it changes playerdata, it does come with a few consequenses.
You will lose ALL set homes
You will lose ALL ranks and permissions
You will lose ALL items in your inventory
You will lose ALL access to your claims
Unfortunately, the only way to fix these issues at the time is saving coordinates of your homes, putting your items in chests, and notifiying an admin that you will lose a certain rank. All pokemon related data will not change, so all pokemon you have in your PC and Party should stay.
Please make sure you take care of these issues before doing a username change!
I just wanted to inform you all that the PikaCity Safari Zone has just been opened to the pubic! In the zone, you can find all sorts of Pokemon, such as starters, fossil Pokemon, even rare Pokemon like Dratini!
Also, you can find the extremely rare Pokemon: Ditto, somewhere in the Zone! Ditto's spawn location will periodically change, so stay on your toes! If I remember correctly, Ditto's current location is an area with precious and expensive things.
If you find the Ditto, DO NOT reveal the location, or else the location will immediately change!
The Safari Zone entrance is located right outside of spawn, in Ye' Ol' PikaCity Mine. Each Safari Zone pass will cost you $15000 to enter, however, the price may change based on the opinion of trainers and staff.
