Hold steady your swords and shields as the Galar Festival is arriving to Johto's shores for a limited time. A bunch of new Pokemon, items, and other goodies from the Galar region are featured in this special festival. Like the other regional festivals featured over the years a number of familiar shall appear as well as a few new ones. Galar forms of some old Pokemon, the battle bazaar, and the lotto are just a few of the great surprises in store for you.
Of course no Galar Festival would be complete without Curry. A Curry Cooking contest will run every other week alternating with the Lotto so you will have multiple chances to enter.
Both old and new trainers can face off against the visiting rival Hop and earn a prize if they can best him in a Pokemon battle though the prize will be different depending on how far your character has advanced in the RP.
Also after many years the Battle Frontier is going to be released alongside the festival, not all of it's features will be released at once but more will be added as time goes by.
There is also a Universal RP thread for those who wish to get creative during the festival and curry cooking for a limited time as well. If there is anything else you think we may have missed something or have a suggestion make sure you head on over to Member SUggestions to post them.
One final thing of note is that Dynamaxing and Gigantamaxing won't be coming to Johto but fear not as there will be plenty of other additions in store and enjoy the Galar Festival.
Hullo everyone! Hope you're all enjoying the festive activities and markets. We noticed not too many trainers entering the Acre Stadium, and that perhaps it wasn't moving quite as fast as intended. As such, the battle requirements and festival points have been adjusted to suit the current modding climate. It should be easier to get to those leaders and obtain the milestones to buy more from the Battle Bazaar.
Speaking of which, prices for pokémon in the bazaar have been adjusted too. Not just point wise but also now the entry level prizes have the option to be bought with money instead. Then those who prefer to watch battles over partaking can still grab something!
Any outstanding battle threads from either Hop or the Acre Stadium may continue to be posted to completion. However, if any go inactive in for a significant period of time (~10+ days) and are the only ones left unfinished they may be archived along with the disappearance of the festival board.
Likewise the Battle Bazaar will remain available for buying, and the Galar Lottery so winning ticket holders may collect their prizes, until all the battle threads have concluded.
