June 7: Happy 16 Years of Eclipse + Crystal Crossing + Signature Promos!
Happy anniversary, Pokemon Eclipse!! As of today, Eclipse has turned a hefty 16 years old! I want to thank everybody in the community from the bottom of my heart, it's truly unbelievable how far we've come and how strong we've stood over the years.
I'm incredibly excited to see what unfolds over the next year of Eclipse - as I mentioned previously, it's been quite some time since we've mixed things up here in a significant way. Over the last year-ish, I've been vociferously experimenting with new features/mechanics, among other things, many of which are nearing fruition. So with the continued support of the community, and luck on our side, we'll hopefully have a bunch to be excited about over the coming year! Thanks so very much to everybody who has supported me on this journey and those who continue to do so, it genuinely means more than I could ever express, and it is earnestly the privilege of my life (I'm a hit at parties!). Your support has allowed us to continue for far longer than anybody could've expected and will propel us into an even better future over the next year and beyond. Thanks so very much, truly. I wish I could mind-meld with the community and express just how grateful I am. You all are the best. ♥
With the cringe outta the way, read on for some fun anniversary updates!!
Following a massive meteor strike, Crystal Crossing has reemerged! Once hidden deep within the core of the planet, Crystal Crossing briefly revealed itself last year before quickly and mysteriously vanishing back into the ether... I guess it took a lil trip into Outer Space! What's more, it seems the mythical wish-maker ShinyJirachi became GalaxyJirachi! Perhaps she's even more powerful...? Or is this a new being entirely?! In any case, rumors are swirling that she will grant your wishes if you pay her a visit...
Finally, Signature Promos have made another comeback! Back in Version 1.1 X, signature promos were an informal type of promotional Pokemon that could be captured by visiting the Webmaster ★ Cless's profile signature on random occasions — click here to see how they looked back then!
For at least the rest of June, make sure to check Cless's signature near the bottom of the page every so often to collect your Signature Promo!
... Aaaand of course, no celebratory site update would be complete without an event boost! So, in celebration of 16 years, enjoy a sitewide 1.6x EXP boost for the rest of the week! (The final day will be Sunday, June 11th.)

June 3: Pride Gaze Mountain!
All of a sudden, Moon Gaze Mountain has been terraformed into Pride Gaze Mountain, attracting numerous rare Pokemon to the area - oh the madness! They'll only be around for the next two weeks, so head on over to Pride Gaze Mountain to capture some exclusive festive Pokemon while you can!
June 1: Rock Trade-In Pride!
Happy Pride Month!! In celebration, some new festivities for the month have begun - read on to learn more!
First and foremost, a bunch of prideful Pokemon have staged a parade at the Rock Trade-In! Loving and cute as they are, they miiiight join your team if you demonstrate your worth. That is, by paying up with 250,000 Rocks, of course!
Second of all, Roto Boosts have made a return! You might recognize these from the 2021 Virus Event - this time, they're directly findable while clicking and a new Roto Rocks boost has been introduced in celebration of the Rock Trade-In Pride Parade! Once found, use them at the Roto Boosts section to activate personal boosts in EXP, Platinum Coins, shards, and more!
And of course, no celebratory update would be complete without a festive
On a somewhat weird and personal note, I wanted to apologize for my relative slowness and various delays these last few months, and just the dearth of content. It's been a heck of a year so far, suffice to say it's not been terribly fun. And any time I've thought I've turned a corner, life inevitably throws something else my way. So I hesitate to jinx myself yet again, but I genuinely believe I'm back in order now for the most part, and will hopefully be back on track by the end of the month at the latest.
I'm truly sorry for the inconvenience and boredom this has caused, but I can promise I'm fully dedicated to making Eclipse great again[tm], I care about this game more than is probably healthy. If nothing else, I've had plenty of time to work on prototypes of new features/mechanics/etc and ideas suggested by the community, which I hope to deploy later this year if all goes well. It's been a long time since we've changed things up with new concepts and mechanics, so I'm looking forward to shaking things up on Eclipse! Anyway, all of that to say I greatly appreciate the patience shown by so much of the community and staff/artists, it means a lot, and I won't let all of you down.
... Please do bear with me while I get through the backlog, though! :sweat_smile:
