"The freedom to play"

Test Your Luck
Legendary Events
Prize Awards




Let's go on an adventure to see the world of Pokemon Nation! In our lovely community we have quite a few things to keep our members entertained. It's always good to have others things to do, especially if you're waiting to breed some pokemon or need to find an enjoyable way to level them up. So below you will find quite a few different things that PKMNation offers!


..::: Events


Each Month, an Event will be offered for members to participate in if they so wish to. These will oftentimes have special awards for participating, such as the chance for a Rarity Pokemon! Within the monthly Main Event, there will be smaller events taking place, each with their own Objective guidelines for participating.

However, every event, no matter when it's taking place, or what the guidelines are, will have specific rules that will be adhered to.
All Pokemon participating in the event MUST have approved Reference Sheets accepted in PKMNation.
  :pointr: Any submission failing to do so will be denied at the time of processing, the grace period does not apply to this rule.

All Pokemon participating in an event MUST have their reference sheets linked to in the event art or story Artist Description area.

Any work submitted for an event MUST be:
Drawn: Clean lines, and fully colored.  No sketches allowed.
Written: Must be a minimum of 200 words.  
No exceptions.

All event Art and Stories MUST be submitted to the Missions folder and linked to the current Event Journal, before the deadline, to be considered.

    :pointr: There is a 24hr grace period for corrections to be made in the submission queue for those that submitted both a deviation and a comment in time for the event. If it has been 24hrs past the comment asking for correction, the submission will be denied a prize and any event levels are to be removed.


Monthly Themes


Monthly themes are a new addition to PKMNation! It will be a monthly prompt to give to members that wish to still participate in a group event during the month without having to stress over weekly deadlines.

At the beginning of a month we will post a theme and members will have the entirety of the month to submit the image into Everyday Images and then post a comment with a link to the submission on the corresponding journal. Rules for the Monthly Themes will follow along the general rules of regular Events, with any exceptions that the Theme runner may include.

Theme bonuses for levels, items, etc. can be obtained for participating in the prompt! Any and all prizes will be rolled at the end of the month. Please make sure that you have everything submitted and correct before the prompt ends!


Trails


Each Month, a Trail will be designed and opened on specific days for members to explore. There is a chance to discover and catch Pokémon (maybe even one with a Special Trait or two), and even find items. To participate in a trail, you must own a Mountain Bike, which can be purchased at the Delibird Market.

When you start on the Trail, you have the option to use Honey to attract wild Pokemon to you. When you encounter a wild Pokemon, you have the option to attempt a capture or to Flee from it. If you choose to attempt a capture, you can make use of Poke Balls to increase your chances of success. Each type of Poke Ball has a different percentage of increased capture.
Honey, Poke Balls, Great Balls and Ultra Balls can be purchased at the [Delibird Market], found on the trail, or given as an Award from an event.

If you decide you do not want the Pokemon you have captured, you can opt to release it back into the wild. This MUST be done at the time of the capture (merely let the Moderator whom is handling your Trail know that you are releasing the Pokemon rather than completing the capture). If you do not choose to release at this time, you will be asked for the gender of your new Pokemon, and it will be added to your inventory.

At times, a Seasonal or Holiday Trail may become available. For these trails, you will be temporarily trading in your Mountain Bike for whatever item is needed to participate on the trail (such as a Bathing Suit or Lantern). This means that you will still need the Mountain Bike to trade for the item necessary.

All trails, normal or Seasonal, may be ventured onto once per day on the days they are open. **Trails will be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays.**


Test Your Luck


On the first Wednesday of each month, every member of PKMNation will have the opportunity to press the button found in their Pkmnation.com inventory and be awarded a special prize! You will never know in advance what you might get, but it will always be something nice, to be sure!

For this event, the button MUST be pressed ON THAT DAY. If you miss it, there is no second chance.


Legendary Events


At least once a year, the Champions will roll out a special event for members to try and win a Legendary Pokemon! These events will span anywhere from a single month to a whole year, and will have very specific guidelines and rules to follow. Each Legendary Event will have its own set of rules and guidelines. For these events, there will only be ONE grand prize winner, the person who wins the Legendary in question; though there is likely to be many secondary winners of nice prizes.

Legendary Events will coincide with regular Events! Rather than replacing, they will simply overlap so as to give members more variety in what kind of events they can participate in as well as the quantity.


Prize Awards


**All prizes awarded from events will be done via RNG.** This is to ensure that the awards are given and awarded completely fairly. Unless an event has a specified in advance amount of top prizes that will be awarded, the number of top prizes will be limited to 10% of the entrants and will not increase in chance upon prolonged participation. This means that if there are 90 entries over the course of the entire monthly event, only 9 people will be awarded a top prize via RNG. Every person who participates in an event, however, will be awarded a prize. The prize will be determined by the random prize generator available to Moderators on the PKMNation website.

This was decided to make sure all prizes are always awarded fairly and without bias; and the rules for deciding the winners are the same no matter what.  Only the Legendary Events will be handled differently, and those will be determined in advance by the Champions handling the event.

Quick question about the monthly themes!

I understand that multiple submissions are acceptable, does that mean that all must be linked in the monthly theme in order to gain the bonuses of participating or only the one which is being entered for the prize? If it isn't linked, can it still gain the monthly theme bonuses as long as it adheres to the theme's rules?

Hey there Bagel!

You should only link one entry to the event, as that is only to gain the prize. As long as the other parameters are met, you can claim the bonuses and what not in any other submissions for it. :>
You can link the monthly theme journal in the submissions as well if you'd like!

If you only enter one or two weeks are your chances of receiving a rarity the same as someone who enters all weeks?

Hiya Neo~
It's up to who runs the event, some events are so anyone who joins can have a chance and others are so that only those who participate on certain weeks (usually the last two weeks) are in the running for a chance at the rarity. Usually if it's only certain weeks the event should state that~ Participating in multiple weeks will not up your chances. <3 Hope this helps!

You are allowed to split a comic into multiple deviations, however they will generally only count as one submission, unless otherwise specified as part of the event.

12am EST on the first Wednesday of the new month.
Because we had issues last month with dA not allowing site access during TYL, it was moved to the second Wednesday of the week, and has likely not been updated to be the first Wednesday again. <:

Just gonna notify DrakAlGhul here about the issue, since I'm unsure if he's seen it in our mod chat yet.~

I've got a question that I think I know the answer to after reading this but I want to double check. Are rarities awarded on a RNG basis unless otherwise specified? As in, as long as you enter you have a chance for a rarity (again, unless otherwise specified)?

I have a question about events, do you have to participate in the event every week to be apart of it? or can you miss a week or two and still be apart of said event?

I'm rejoining from a different account socksNstars.
Right before leaving, I did a mission entry -the first week of May 2014.
-> Masquerade

I was wondering if the prizes being handed out per-entry is a new thing?
Or if I just never received the prize for participation?
It looks like the original event journal has been deleted, or else I would have looked it up myself.

Just making sure I understood trails right

1st You need a mountain bike to participate
2nd You can use honey to increase encounter chance (optional)
3rd You can use poke balls (normal/great/ultra) to increase capture chance (optional) - so there's still a chance of capturing even without the actual items?
4th You can either release the pokemon after capture or flee from it without the capture attempt

"All event Art and Stories MUST be submitted to the Missions folder and linked to the Event Journal, before the deadline, to be considered." Are pieces counted as submitted if the request has been sent before the deadline or do you acctually have to have it accepted before the deadline for them to count at all? I'm asking because I know it's easy for submissions to pile up (even if everyone's very good at not letting it happen) and there's been times where Event pieces of mine haven't gotten accepted until long after the deadline has passed even when submited hours before it's end so I just got a bit worried ^-^;
