Contest: The Great Pokemon Hunt 2011

Lusipurr.com is pleased to present The Great Pokemon Hunt 2011!

Smugleaf provides 100% of your recommended daily allowance of BETTER THAN YOU.

SmugLeaf

From 6 March, any person with PKMN Black or White can choose to participate in The Great PKMN Hunt 2011. The person with the most valid trades completed before our Summer of Suikoden playthrough (begins 5 June) will win a brand new, full price (up to $60 US) game of their choice from Amazon or Steam! This contest is open to Lusipurr.com staff members and guests, but all trades must be set up using the comment system.

NOTE: You must have legitimately caught the PKMN you are trading in an English copy of the game. Trading PKMN acquired from other players, other versions, or which you have cheated to obtain, will result in disqualification.

How To Play:
1 – Each week, Lusipurr will ask for a random type of PKMN. If you have a PKMN of that type from the PKMN specific to Black or White, and can trade with him to fulfill his request, post a comment on this post saying what PKMN you would like to trade him. You may only post one trade offer at a time, and only one trade offer per day; you may only trade once per day. Multiple submissions above this one-per-day rule will be deleted. For the purposes of this contest, the new day begins at 00:00 US Eastern Time.

2Lusipurr will attempt to trade with people for PKMN on a first-comment, first-traded basis. If that attempt fails, he will move on to the next person offering that PKMN, and so on, until the trade for that PKMN is successful. Therefore, you may use your trade offer to propose a trade which someone else is already offering, but you will only be allowed to make that trade if the previous offers fail, because…

3 – When a trade is successful, the person who made the trade will receive one point. After week three, Legendaries traded will be worth three points. Thereafter, no one can trade that PKMN to Lusipurr for the rest of that trading week. Running totals are posted at the bottom of this thread.

All participants will have their names and scores read on the Megaphones Ahoy! Podcast, and there will be a number of secondary prizes awarded, including a guest spot on the podcast, as well! Even the smallest contribution is worthwhile. Get out there and catch some PKMN!

Remember, you will need to add Lusipurr to your Pal Pad, and he will need to add you to his own, so be sure to provide your information the first time you comment. Lusipurr’s PKMN name is Lusi and his friend code is 3095 6500 7534.

    This first week will be an open week, where everyone has a chance to see the rules and start thinking ahead. Next week, at midnight on Sunday, the first type will be announced here. Then, individual offers can be made.

    The rules will be very strictly adhered to. If you have any questions about them, feel free to ask them here in the thread.

    At the moment, I am considering having you trade to my copy of SoulSilver so that we can get the contest started sooner, because, in White, it may take a while until I can get to a point where I 1) can trade at all, and 2) have enough funding for the loads of pokeballs I’ll need for trading fodder.

    If nothing else, you can feel free to discuss the games here, too, since this is effectively a playthrough thread as well!

    So. Addicted. I can’t honestly say if you’re able to trade/have a ton of Pokéballs soon into the game or not. I can trade and have 50 Pokéballs at my disposal, but I played near 10 hours of the game yesterday. Somehow.

    Smugleaf!

    I genuinely don’t know the answer to this one: will the new black and white pokemon trade backwards to the older games?

    So far I’m liking the improvements graphically that they’ve made, but it’s definitely not earth shattering. I am certainly enjoying it though.

  9. Lusipurr
    Posted 2011.03.07 at 16:51 | Permalink

    @Dan: Yes, they will. No.

    I like to think that each PKMN game just takes what the previous games had, and polishes it even further. The idea is eventually reach some sort of Pokenirvana, where the game is a perfect collect-em-all experience.

    That said, I feel that this particular version seems to have ‘polished’ more than usual iterations. It feels absolutely amazing. Everything seems so sharp!

  10. Ethos
    Posted 2011.03.07 at 16:54 | Permalink

    Yeah, it’s truly one of the better versions. At least so far.

  11. Lusipurr
    Posted 2011.03.07 at 16:59 | Permalink

    Heads-up!

    You’ll have to trade from your copy of B/W to my copy of B/W. As with previous games, you can’t trade to other versions until after you complete the main story and obtain the National Pokedex.

    So it looks like we’ll have a short delay until I can receive trades, which should be soon!

    Hrm, despite all the great tweaks for the better (the BEST being the ability to trade FROM ANYWHERE – not just the Pokémon Centre – and being able to trade from the PC boxes), there are a few confusing backsteps.

    1. The ability to always be wearing the running shoes. It’s a small thing, yes, but in SoulSilver, you could tap the shoes on and off so that you didn’t have to hold down B to run. It was nice.

    2. The ability to use the left shoulder button as an alternate for the “A” button. I could eat with one hand and play Pokémon with the other. It was nice.

    Those MINOR things aside, this truly is shaping up to be my favourite entry since Gold/Silver. I’m only 4 badges in though, so we’ll see.

  14. Lusipurr
    Posted 2011.03.08 at 16:40 | Permalink

    Both of those issues annoy. I wonder why they did that?

  15. Ethos
    Posted 2011.03.08 at 17:35 | Permalink

    I truly can’t tell why they did it. There also doesn’t seem to be a visual icon for when a Pokémon in the boxes is holding an item. That used to be the case, didn’t it? It was nice.

  16. Lusipurr
    Posted 2011.03.08 at 17:37 | Permalink

    @Ethos: Nope, not in Diamond/Pearl or SoulSilver/HeartGold, at least. The only way to tell whether an PKMN in a box was holding an item (or, as I recall, in ANY place) was to look at its status screen or choose to give it an item or take an item from the relevant menu.

  17. Ethos
    Posted 2011.03.08 at 18:09 | Permalink

    Oh, okay. I’m just making up things that WOULD be convenient now.

    I have the game and I’m almost at the second gym(would have been further but I had to restart until I had all the starter pokemon). The darker grass containing two wild pokemon is a great new addition to the game.

    I’m going to participate, but I’m still in GA and the DS can’t connect to the hotel wifi, so I’m going to have to wait until I get back home to get my Friend Code…

  24. DanChiSao
    Posted 2011.03.11 at 10:47 | Permalink

    My friend code is 3009 7397 5062. And his name is Toby.

    And if you guys haven’t done so already, don’t forget to download the Liberty Pass so you can get Victini.

  25. Lusipurr

    @Dan: Are you certain his name is not actually KUNTA KINTE?

    Thanks for reminding everyone about the Liberty Pass. I completely forgot to mention it!

    I’d like to understand and participate, but I honestly can’t make any sense of the rules. Oh well.

  32. Chris Privitere
    Posted 2011.03.12 at 01:29 | Permalink

    Also, you don’t actually need the person’s trainer name, you can use whatever name you want for them. But if you want to know, I just called myself Chris.

  33. Lusipurr
    Posted 2011.03.12 at 03:54 | Permalink

    @Chris: What would you like clarified? I’ve tried to be pretty explicit about the rules above.

    Also, *I* need to know trainer names so that if I look through traded PKMN to verify who has traded what, I can match up the ‘trainer name’ on the PKMN’s status sheet to the person here on the site.

  34. DanChiSao
    Posted 2011.03.12 at 10:33 | Permalink

    @Ethos Yeah, Victini has been a beast for me so far. Especially once I slapped the Lucky Egg on to boost leveling even faster. :)

  35. Ethos
    Posted 2011.03.12 at 11:14 | Permalink

    I did too, DanChiSao. But then I got a Dragon-type and the Lucky Egg is NECESSARY for that dude.

    And Lusipurr, what about Pokémon that I’ve caught and traded to a friend and traded back so that it might evolve? Still legal?

  36. Lusipurr
    Posted 2011.03.12 at 12:02 | Permalink

    @Ethos: Yep, as long as you are the original trainer, it doesn’t matter who else has had it.

    How do you get Victrini?!

  38. Lusipurr
    Posted 2011.03.12 at 17:14 | Permalink

    @G_Lanser: It’s VICTINI.

    At the game title screen where you choose to continue, instead of doing that scroll down and choose PKMN Mystery Gift via Nintendo WFC. You’ll get the card and, when you log into the game and go to a PKMN Center, there will be a guy there who gives you the item you need to get Victini.

  39. G-lanser

  41. Lusipurr

    @G-lanser: The instructions that tell you how to use it come with the game.

    Also everyone who has commented their friend code so far has been added! Make sure you add me (and everyone else) and you’ll see each other when you log into the Nintendo WFC Club room thingy.

    First type request coming soon . . . . . .

    @Reetin Haha, yeah I had my Amoongus all ready to go, I was just waitin’ for midnight to roll around.

    —-

    I’m almost to the Elite Four, and man I’m loving the story in this game! It feels like a really good pokemon movie’s story. The cutscenes are actually cutscenes for once, and I love all the uses of the 3D Camera.

    I dare say this is the best pokemon game yet! My only issue with it is that a lot of the new pokemon aren’t that cool looking… Specifically, there’s a lack of really good looking water and fire type pokemon.

  84. Ethos

    Curses. Alright, good to know. I won’t waste my time trying to catch more than one of the old pokemon.

    Speaking of the old pokemon, it sure is fun to see the older pokemon in the new battle system, all animated and shit.
