There are currently no updates scheduled.
The duel system has been completely rewritten to allow for many new additions in future updates, such as for abilities, double battles, Z-moves, etc.
As a result of this, many things now work slightly differently. Some of the following major changes include:
Gyms are now generally harder, having the following filters in place for challengers at all times:
--one-mega --commons --distinct-species --sleep-clause --evasion-clause.
For practice duels, and getting your daily shard, challenge the AI instead using
Many features have now been migrated to work with buttons, including but not limited to: confirmations, pagination, dueling, auction/market info buttons, pokemon/market recording, quest search/spawn, settings, and channel/server config.
Tons more suggestions implemented, including the addition of shiny pity and tons of improvements to existing features.
Almost 100% of duel-related items have now been fully implemented! The only ones not implemented are ones specific to a single pokemon, and the Leppa Berry which will be added soon.
To buy an item, just use
p!buy <item> and it will automatically be equipped to your selected pokemon and able to be used in duels.
Ever get tired of writing the same filters over and over again? Custom filters are here for you! Create a filter using
p!filter create <filter name> <filters>, and reference it using
p!pk --filter <filter name>.
Tons of suggestions, from as far back as July 2020, have been implemented. New commands include
p!redirect add/remove> and
Pokemon can now be added to trade using filters rather than having to get all numbers. Use
p!p add --filters (while in trade) to do so.
p!p add --name milcery --not fav.
Sending a pokemon away on a quest will allow it to walk along with you, gaining power to use various quest-related features. Berries have been added as re-useable duel items, along with all related effects. Friendship has also been added as a mechanic.
Added more support for automated tourneys, as well as duel formats and clauses.
Every move now has its effects, except for those fully reliant on berries or abilities.
This update was focused on player-based QoL improvements and additions. Some additions include
p!vote rewards and
p!settings for player settings.
Crown Tundra was released as DLC to Pokemon Sw/Sh today, and with it came 11 new pokemon. All 11 of these pokemon have now been added, and are fully available.
54% of moves now have their effects as opposed to 9% pre-update. A small list of some of the overarching effects can be seen below.
