So while most of you have already received your prizes, there's a catch! You aren't done yet!

And with that, the PCT is officially over! Thank you to all for your participation and thank you all even more for your tremendous patience and integrity!

Get Your Bikes Ready!

That's right ladies and gentleman! As a sort of apology for the grueling PCT and just because this was set to come out sooner or later, the Staff Team at Turquoise would like to officially announce the opening of the Breeding Center in the region of New Logora!

If you click the link located here, you can explore all that the Breeding Center has to offer, and how to use it properly. Since the system is new, it is likely that there will be some quirks with it as first, so be sure to post here in the newly created RPG Service Center. Happy hatching fellow trainers!

Stay Tuned!

While this TA was rather sudden and short, there are more things in the works, updating happening consistently at long last, and a truck full of hilarious conversation on the Discord channel as usual! Thank you for your continued support in our loving community!

Until next time,

YEEEEES! If anyone would be willing to breed me a Spraylet, I will breed them a Crocoal in trade! It may take me a bit to figure out how to breed it (eg. if I need to catch anything first), plus I need to get to Verserecto and get a badge in order to trade, but I will do it!

In addition, I would like my tinimer to retain Electroweb, please. Putting Cut on it was a sort of 'oh, I don't know, this'll do' so I really don't care that I'm losing it for placing 4th.

Admin Note: All set! -Chron
This often catches me out, too, but Xander the Crocoal is female.

I'm not sure where to start with breeding >.< Still awesome that it's finally here though~

As for my Skrelp, I'd like to drop Whirlpool for Venom Drench. It wasn't as useful as I'd hoped. x.x

Admin Note: Good to go! - Chron
I'll keep Frozen Blade for Turistar.

Admin Note: Enjoy! - Chron
Alrighty, after much deliberation and quite some more thinking, I'll be switching Galorindle's (life-saving) Charge Beam attack with Flash Shot, in preparation for getting that TM later. : ) That'll leave Galorindle with the special moves of Shimmer Shot and Flash Shot. : ) (...saying that just for the record in case someone forgets or someone new asks; where did I get those moves from? x3 ...)

Admin Note: There ya go! - Chron
[Today 06:03 PM] Eonrider : See you in the future, suckers!
[Today 08:54 PM] Orchestra : Also yay, a Kaelyn post. x3 More text walls~
I'd like my Turistar Frozen Blade please.
Huh Guess I never claimed this. Think I'll keep Ominous Wind over Shimmer Shot for my Galorindle
LightKunai, I'm not sure why your's didn't get done, but it has now been changed.

Thunderfox, that has been changed on your profile. Thank-you for letting us know your decision. : )

Arydigital, this tournament was conducted about 2 years ago and is no longer active. As you did not participate in it, there is no pokemon or move(s) you may claim.
[Today 06:03 PM] Eonrider : See you in the future, suckers!
