This is going to be a long news post, but be sure to give it a good read!

EXP. Events
As stated in my most recent announcement, there will be a global EXP. boost on Monday, December 3rd to celebrate the site reaching 10,000 members on TPK Blue. On top of this, we also just recently hit the donation goal for another global EXP. boost, which has currently not been scheduled yet. Expect it to happen sometime soon though. Be there or be square!

WTC Updates
Some of you may have noticed already, but we replaced the Boxing Gloves and Protein perks. These perks have been very impractical to use, given how the current training "meta" works. So, to give some new life to the WTC, we have tossed those to the side and added two new perks!

Fortune's Favor: It functions exactly like EXP. Belts, but instead of giving increased EXP, it gives increased money!

Clan Banner: Remember the old days when you earned Clan EXP. while training? Well, those days are back! By giving Clan EXP. gains through single-roster battles, this will allow trainers to help out their clan with battles, something that has been abandoned with the shift to single-roster battles. Note that this does not affect Clan Showdown.

Another small change that we added was the ability to preview the WTC Awards to see what all of the possible contents are. Although most (if not all) of the old prizes were discovered over time, we figured it would be nicer for players to see everything before investing.

The "Shop" Update (Coming 01/01/19)
Mark your calendars, tell your friends! This update has been requested for a while now, and I do agree that the shops could use some fresh new pixels. More pixels. Better pixels. I plan to deliver just that! The update will roll out on New Year's Day to turn a new leaf and (hopefully) provide everyone with both short-term and long-term goals to strive for.

This covers more than just shops, however! Here's a list of  areas that are getting a "loot" revamp:
- Pokémon Shop
- Mining Shop
- Minigame Shop
- Battle Point Shop
- Team Headquarters
- Harrison (Secret Dungeon)
- Secret Dungeon Chests
- Weekly Training Contest
- WTC Awards
- Pokédex Challenge
- The Impossible Game
- Mystery Box

Furthermore, because most of these Pokémon will become unobtainable, All shop Pokémon will be in rotation for the month of December! Be sure to get any last-minute things that you want before they're gone.

Spriter Recruitment
With many new Pokémon being added to the shops and other various areas of the game, as well as our lack of spriters, we are going to be at a shortage of sprites for some time. We have guides for each type of sprite, so if you are interested in helping out, feel free to contact B0sh or myself. We are primarily looking at Forest and Cloud sprites for now. As an added incentive, there is now a small credits section when viewing a Pokémon to show who made the sprite! Here's what it looks like:

If you're reading this, then you made it to the end. Check back in later for details on more updates and events in the future. Have a TPK day! ~Altios
