    News and updates about Pokémon, events, and game mods


    We just got finished applying some back-end server updates. Nothing particularly interesting, but we have some other exciting announcements.


    For years, we've used IRC as our primary instant messaging service. Now, we have a Discord guild where you can discuss anything.

    Advantages of Discord over IRC:

    • See message history without having to be connected
    • Cross platform - use it on desktop, mobile, or in a web browser
    • More formatting options, including the same reactions as what we have in the forums

    Guild link: https://discord.gg/pmATjZw

    IRC isn't going anywhere, and we still plan to use it for more technical discussions.


    Project Pokémon gets its funding from two sources: advertisements and administrators. Nobody likes advertisements, and things can get expensive when only a few people bankroll a dedicated server. Thanks to Patreon, hopefully we can fix that. Patreon is a place where users can help support us, helping give Project Pokémon a more stable future. People who donate will receive the following rewards:

    • No more advertisements
    • Gold username on the forums and Discord
    • Sneak-peeks of upcoming features

    The Image Gallery

    Speaking of sneak-peeks of upcoming features, one new feature that's been in the works for quite a while is now ready. Today, we introduce our Image-dex. Here, you can find a collection of Pokémon images from various games and generations.


    Art Competition

    We need a new banner and icon for things like Twitter, Facebook, and Patreon, so we're holding an art competition. The winner will be awarded a special username color on the forums and Discord, a forum badge, and credit wherever the image is used. Details are in the art competition thread:



    With Poké Transporter, you can easily transfer any of your Pokémon using a single Nintendo 3DS system.

    An update for the popular app that transfers your Pokémon from Generation 5 games and Virtual Console: Generation 1 games has gone live!
    Preliminary reports indicate that for VC Gen 1 transfers, the erroneous shiny calculation has been rectified, and there are changes to gender determination.

    We will continue to update this page, as the story develops.

    Shiny Determination Source:

    It appears that shininess uses the original Gen 2 formula

    Gender Source:

    It also appears that gender is using original Gen 2 determination

    and as a result, @SnorlaxMonster reported that with gender now being based on IVs, it's now impossible to get female Shiny 7:1 m:f Pokémon from VC.
    which affects ALL of the Pokémon with that ratio that are in Gen 1: Starters, Fossils, Eevee line, Snorlax.

    Gen 2 support not yet added

    We recently obtained a Mystery Mew distribution cartridge.  It is the original distribution cart containing the event MYSTRY Mew 06930!
    This Mew was distributed as a perk for attending Geoffrey the Giraffe's Birthday Party at Toys”R”Us stores across the USA on September 30, 2006, from 12 PM to 3 PM.

    This particular cartridge is important because it contains a MYSTRY Mew, which we did not have before.
    We are asking the community to help pay for this acquisition since the auction was very expensive.  After fees, the cartridge cost us a whopping $900!  Please help us by donating to Deoxyz, who got this cartridge on credit.

    Donations can be sent to: Deoxys04@gmail.com

    Special thanks to @HaxAras and @Deoxyz.  Also, thank you to everyone that has donated so far; any future donations are appreciated.

    In Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, there's a place in Lively Town called the Meowth Theater where you can record yourself playing through a dungeon. Films that are saved locally can be watched later or shared online. Since the games were released, the online service for sharing films has been discontinued. However, so has the entire theater service, if you install the latest update. If you try talking to Meowth in town, you'll be greeted with this dialog:

    PSMD Portrait Normal.png Welcomeow to Meowth Theatrer, Meowever...

    PSMD Portrait Normal.pngYou won't be able to watch any films anymore.

    PSMD Portrait Normal.pngI'm really sorry, meow.

    This Meowth Theater shutdown extends outside the game itself, however. It has been removed from the official character list.

    The same place on the same page shown today. Notice the "=-". Perhaps Meowth scratched the page as he was dragged away.

    Restoring the Meowth Theater to the game is as simple as uninstalling the update. It remains fully functional, except that films can no longer be shared. It is currently unknown if anything else has changed in the update, so there is no compelling reason to install this update.
