    First spotted in the network traffic of Pokémon GO by the Twitter user Chrales yesterday, the mysterious Pokémon shown above started to appear in Pokémon GO randomly for a short period of time before disappearing again.

    Upon being seen, it would immediately turn into a Ditto, Chikorita, Kecleon, or others. At first it was thought to be a placeholder, but after it began to appear in GO and the Global Marketing Lead tweeted about it, it was clear this was not the case. No further details are known yet.

    What are your thoughts on it?

    Welcome to Azurilland's Game of the Month! We hope that you enjoy the games and participate in the fun.

    What is Game of the Month?
    On the fifth of every month, the hosts will release a new game for the community to complete.  These games include but are not limited to crosswords, word searches, and quizzes.  Games are themed around Pokémon or Azurilland itself.  All members who complete the month's game will be listed in next month's post.  Submitting the most correct answers in the shortest time will also be recognized.

    Are there any rules?
    Players must complete these games entirely on their own unless the game specifies that collaboration is allowed. Research is allowed unless otherwise told. You are also allowed to submit incomplete entries if you cannot solve everything. Any other necessary clarifications will be listed in the game's description.

    This Month's Game: Johto Pokédex Quiz

    Note:  Your goal is to determine which Generation II Johto Pokémon the Pokédex entry is for. The entries have been paraphrased to prevent copy paste answer searches, but should be recognizable.

    1. This Pokémon's fleece grows back in about a week.

    2. Biting into one of this Pokémon's eggs will make you smile! 

    3. This Pokémon is surrounded by a very hard shell. Only its eyes can be seen. 

    4. This Pokémon's eyes are specially adapted to see in the dark while it flies on its two silent wings.

    5. Long ago, the howls of this Pokémon were considered to be the call of the grim reaper.

    6. This vicious Pokémon eats Pidgey eggs after driving them from their nests.

    7. The tip of its feet are lined with tiny barbed claws that enable it to climb on ceilings and walls.

    8. Its bright light illuminates the deep oceans.

    9. If you stare at this Pokémon's antlers for too long, you will begin to lose control of your senses. 

    10. Legend says the north wind blows where this Pokémon appears.

     Merushii


    From the depths of Pokémon Playthroughs rises a star...this month's featured playthrough has been chosen!

    What is Monthly Featured Playthroughs?

    On the first Sunday of each month, an ongoing run is picked from either Challenge Runs or Casual Runs to be featured. Aside from following the challenge's rules (if you are writing in the applicable sub-forum), keeping your team updated, and remaining reasonably active with updates, there are no strict guidelines in order to be featured.

    Show us your creativity through your work and you may be considered for a feature! This could be through your writing, use of screenshots, videos, pictures — anything you can think of!

    Wish Tokens

    The community takes part in this process too. While the final decision is up to the host, community members may submit Wish Tokens on the challenges or casual runs they favor by filling out the following form and posting it in the official thread:

     Wish Token Form: 
    ☆ Thread Link:
    ☆ What about this run caught your attention initially?: 
    ☆ What do you like about this run?:
    ☆ Do you have any favorite characters?:
    ☆ Do you have any favorite updates?:
    ☆ Anything else you would like to say?:

     

    These will be saved for as long as the linked run remains ongoing — and if that run is picked, the words of the user that submitted the Wish Token will be included in the feature post!

    This Month's Feature

    Congratulations to this month's featured playthrough writer...
    Paracosmic!

    (Official Announcement)

    (This update may still be in the process of being pushed out to all trainers.)

    It has been discovered that, when traded, Pokémon have a chance of becoming Lucky! Lucky Pokémon will become sparkly and require less Stardust to power up. It is said that the longer a Pokémon spends in storage, the higher chance of it becoming a Lucky Pokémon. 

    Also with this new update comes the ability to nickname and sort those on your friend list.
