    There are different pokemon lurking in this forum on random pages, topics, profiles.

    Your Mission is to catch as many as you can by may 31st.

    So how do you capture them when you see them?
    With Pokeballs of course.
    How do you get pokeballs? Those are earned when you post a new topic, or reply to a topic.

    This contest is open to all members

    The pokedex will show you which pokemon to look for and how many you have captured.
    Click Here to see the Pokedex

    See the latest members who have caught pokemon

    See which players have caught the most pokemon

    You cannot capture the same one, but not right away. You have to wait for the next appearance.

    HOW IT WORKS (so far)

    Every Player (Member) starts with 50 pokeballs and can attempt to capture a pokemon when one appears (I have seen them on the home page near the top, and in the thread view same) top location. Two at a time in this screen shot.

    I didn't write this Game, but looking at the code and the settings that can be changed It appears that I can change how likely pokemon will appear, how long they will show up each day and what percent of the time you can catch them.

    I am adding a few more so you can get excited when you see one but the capture rate will be lower. As long as you have pokeballs, you can continue to try and capture them as long as they are still visible. Some will be tough to capture and will require a lot of pokeballs.

    Stock up by asking a question, answering one thanking someone for their share. or even updating your status. You get one for each of those actions.

    I am adding more pokemon to make it more fun and will announce it to members once I get a better understanding.

    If we get 50 members playing, I will certainly add more prizes.

    I can certainly do that.

    Go to the current pokedex:

    https://wrapcandy.com/ourcommunity/pokemon/leaderboard?tab=pokedex

    Those are pokemon that you will see on randomly on pages, posts and profiles. More will be added.
    Some will appear more often than others. Some will escape more often than not. They can appear anywhere. When you see one, you have to click on them. Information about them will pop up and you will see the option to capture them. Click it, and if you are lucky the little guy will be captured.

    Basically, the more you browse the forum, the more likely you will see one. I captured one this morning.

    You will want to come on everyday as more are added. Also, added a new rule that you can only catch the same pokemon once per day.

    Well for heavens sake, now I know what one of those little things are. Keep in mind, this is a person with no children and
    I live a very sheltered life in my own little world. Pokemon was not on my list of visitors:)

    Wait ..... Okay, so I know what to look for but I want a freebie (she says stomping her feet). I am not good at games and I need a kick start.
    So, Ryan, put one of those goofy things right here please.

    6 months ago, a bunch of friends were catching pokemon at the bar because that is where the game led them. "Pokemon Go"

    Seeing tippsy 20 somethings searching the bar for pokemon was funny, but it was much more comical when they try to justify their odd behavior to the older patrons. They thought they were nuts!

    Note, I cannot win my own contest, but Every other member including volunteer staff members can. The "staff" are not paid to be here, are invaluable members of this community and, in my book, have every right to participate in contests.

    You are in lead by a lot! I don't think you have to worry! LOL

    I wondered what in the world they were and was getting aggravated with them popping up constantly I almost ask if anyone knew how to get rid of them. LOL
     
  20. paulakw "P" Staff Member Staff

    well...I cant really say that I am "worried" ...it is just a fun thing to do :rolleyes: .......and I am only in the lead because I am all over the place and post/share so much ...I have lots of pokeballs built up, so I have them available to me
    ...at first I looked for them to catch ...now I just "try" to catch em when I see them ....but they are getting harder to find and harder to catch ...I have noticed they seem to be "out and about" more in the evenings though

    they will be gone in a month or so ! (at least I think they will be;) )
    ...but I have to admit .....I have been having fun with it !
     
  22. nashsartwork 2017 Reunion Day Pass Team Permissions

    I totally agree...they are getting more and more rare! Before it seemed like they were everywhere and now I get excited when I find them. There is one that I still have none of and I really want to find one! LOL My son is even into it now!
     
  23. paulakw "P" Staff Member Staff

    if the one you don't have is Rapidash or Charmeleon...they are rare ...I usually
    only see them after 6p.m. ...never during the day
    I think it was Charmeleon that I clicked on and read that it is rare and only has a 5% catch rateo_O
    love that your son is getting into it with you!
     
  24. nashsartwork 2017 Reunion Day Pass Team Permissions

    Yep! It is that Rapidash one! DANG IT! I will keep my eyes open! He is constantly encouraging me! It is really cute!
     
  25. paulakw "P" Staff Member Staff

    Rapidash and Pikachu are my favorites!! :)
