Hello Kanto Rioku your next Kanto Champ here wanting to toss some ideas around and hopefully create an area for brainstorming on how we can make Kanto the best server possible! I will be dividing my suggestions into sections to make this a little easier for people to go through. Please if you have any suggestions or addons to my and others ideas please feel free to speak up and contribute this thread is to make help make Kanto stand out and become the best server on Journey Gaming. Section 1: PvP 1.1 Teaching Basics of PvP When it comes to pvp on our server I noticed its a shy subject for most. Also some people want to, but have no idea how to be successful at it. I am not 100% sure when I say this next statement or not if this exists yet, however I'd like to suggest we create a guide on the forums to give people an idea how to start. Teach them about Ev's, Iv's, and of course Natures. Give them resources, links, and other helpful info to teach people who have no idea where to begin. I would be willing to create such a guide myself however I fell I am not the most qualified to do so since my knowledge on advanced information may be limited. 1.2: More PvP Events! Pokemon is a huge advantage we have when it comes to bringing people in so why not encourage it more? I'd like to see more PvP events. Possible event ideas: : Singles only Saturday : 6v6 lv 100 same rules we use already same Tiers Doubles Trouble Sunday : Double Battles any day doesn't matter, 6v6 lv 100 two pokes at a time. same Tiers, same rules Kanto Monthly Tournament : 6v6 lv 100 end of the month tournament for fat loot! Random Battle : 6v6 or 3v3 Random pokes given at random for temporary use for fun entertaining fights Little Cup Only : 6v6 with using Little Cup Smogon Tier list could be very amusing to see people try out this format 1.3 Type Quiz An Idea I stole from Sun and Moon. Have a little mini quiz for people for small prizes. This quiz would do two things teach people the weakness of certain pokemon/ types, and remembering the pokemons' type from memory. This way people can have more effective knowledge on what attacks to use. I don't know about my fellow Gym Subs, but when I see someone try to kill something with the ability levitate or is part flying with a earthquake it saddens me a little. Ex of a type quiz question : Steelix is weak to what types? 15 seconds to answer at least 2 correct. Mr. Mime is apart of what type? Fairy pokemon are immune to what attacks? People that get it correct get points or we can do elimination. Most points/ Last one standing gets Rare Candy or a Champ Key. Section 2 Events/ Vote 1.1 Event Explanations Present company included, I have had many people ask me and others what the events are and how to do them. I know this would be a pain in the butt for staff, however I feel we need to briefly explain the events before we do them so if any new people are online they know how to do it so they won't be frustrated and confused and then never want to do them even again because no one told them what to do or the rules. I personally have seen plenty of new arrivals come on ask what the event is and either be ignored or only have half a clue as to what to do. I know people who just refuse to do them because they are just lost. We really should explain it even though it is a bit of a drag to do every time. 1.2 Voting Announcements Imagine you are trying to see what someone it typing to you and then BOOM! Voting spam in chat you now have to scroll up for a hour to find what your friend whispered you or see what people asked you. For real can we please add a way to disable the announcement function I personally don't care if Someone gets 100 loveballs I'd rather not know about it to be honest. 1.3 Tm's in Vote Chest Why is this even a thing when we have access to all the TM's we could ever want? Is it possible to replace this with money rewards, pokemon, pokeballs, other keys, or heck even Paypoints for the Shop, Destiny Knot, Exp All, Ability Capsule, Legendary Transform items like the Mirror for the Genies, Potions! Anything but Tm's or Hm's maybe keep fly, surf, dive but the others we need to dump in the recycle bin. Also the unpopular option, get rid of the regular crate and just keep the others and make it so you get keys to those instead. Possible holiday keys for voting even? Section 3 General Concerns 1.1 Nicknames vs Real Names Before I even start I just know this is going to get some hate, but for real please don't be offended if I don't know you by a nickname you picked last night and then get huffy when I don't know who you are. I personally don't understand the concept of nicknames and why we ban them at gyms for pokemon yet people nicknames are ok? Your banning pokemon nicknames for the same reason your nicknames frustrate people! Nicknames either need to have your name visible somewhere or not exist. I know I can mouse over and see your name, but why should I have too. If I need to know who you are I need to know who you are. Maybe more of a rant I know, but I don't see how this doesn't cause more confusion than it already has. Plus the idea of framing people is always a option for people to cause some chaos. 1.2 Boss form Items I personally don't know how others would feel, but let me tell you a story. One day Vote party reaches 0 and all the people on the server cheer "Yay lets go get our legendary guys!" " I can't wait to see what spawns!" Everyone is at spawn since everyone camps it like vultures at 30 votes anyways. People are flying all over and then joey finds the legendary! "Guys it's at the Arbok Statue it's Landorous!" People are so excited to see Lando in all his glory, but wait what is this? Joey kills Lando.... for the mirror to change his other Landos form... "How could you!" The people scream and shout "I wanted that Legendary and you just kill it for fun?" Riot in the streets Joey is taken down by the mob and the admins could do nothing to save poor Joey. This is what is going to happen if we don't add other ways to get these boss form changing items or sell them in the Pokemart. I really don't want to see Joey get hurt. Please don't let this be a thing. 1.3 GTS Rules Is there a way we can add a rule that states no eggs on the GTS whatsoever? I am so tired of seeing eggs up there filling up space. They put them up there for 1k-10k and I still don't understand why. If I told you I had a box and you could put your hand in the box feel around and if you wanted whats inside the box for $1000 would you do it? How about $10,000? Why not right, because now thats all thats going to be up there. Why should I sell pokes when eggs sell for more? Again maybe just a rant, but I see this all day and I can't wrap my head around it. One night I accidentally bought one when trying to buy a mon on the GTS for 8k what did I hatch? A 2 iv drillbur... hooray... Please tell me I'm not the only one annoyed by this? 1.4 Pshout/ Pauc I don't know how many people have done this one, but I will admit I have bought something on the Pshout/ Pauc and did not mean too click it. I said it go ahead make fun of me I know, but when you buy a 1 IV magikarp cause someone was trying to be funny or see if someone actually wanted a terrible mon and then you misclick and are now buying this thing for 100,000k you will know the feels. To be honest I wish there was some kind of confirmation before placing a bid or buyout. This way we can avoid these nasty misclicks and possible disputes between players because of a misclick. If you made it this far you are a trooper and I appreciate your struggle. Please feel free to post your own opinions and share your feelings about these and other topics so the ones in charge know how we feel and what we would like to see. Hopefully I have given you all something to think about. Thank you Kanto thank you Journey I'm out for now will be back to see what others think.
