Legacy RattataLegacy StoutlandHyper Event CresseliaLegacy ZeraoraLegacy Shaymin

For the first time since its initial release, the Star Shop avatars section has received a completely new line-up of available avatars to buy with your Star Points! A huge thanks goes to the wonderful Jelly for almost singlehandedly bringing this update to fruition!

Tip: Star Points are a currency exclusively earned from Daily Prize Chests.

July 15: New ??? DNAs!

A new selection of Pokemon can be restored from ALL classes of ??? DNAs! (So: map, battle, mining, chat, and Daily Prize DNAs.) All DNA classes have entirely new prize pools, meaning all prior ??? DNA Pokemon are now unobtainable. A big thanks once again to Kora ʕ ʔ for preparing this update!

Tip: ??? DNAs are a mysterious type of Pokemon DNA found randomly while searching the Legendary Areas, battling, mining, or chatting on the cbox. They can also be earned from Daily Prize chests. Visit the DNA Center to restore DNAs — you require 3 DNAs of a particular type to restore a Pokemon back to life.

July 14: Happy Birthday Jelly!

Happy birthday to our beloved Jelly (Jelly/Patricia)!!! They keep growing up so fast irl aaaaaa!!! >w<!! ;-; In celebration, LegacyRetroSpheal is a Promotional Pokemon for today only! Make sure to wish Jelly a happy birthday if you see her, above ground, underneath a volcano, irl! :3 We love you so much Jelly, we hope you have an absolutely magnificent birthday (irl), you are a truly wonderful daughter!! ♥ ;-;


Custom Pokemon portrait for Ultimew
Condolences Congratulations to Ultimew on being promoted to Head Moderator! This new role is hopefully pretty self-descriptive and is mostly an extension & formalization of what he's already been doing for approximately the last couple of years. He now formally leads and oversees the moderator team and will have more say in staff role decisions (such as promotions/demotions/new hires) and ensure smooth operation of the staff team (including personal/group chats with the staff, reaching out to potential new hires, and onboarding), as well as have more discretion in community-oriented decisions, and leeway to oversee or delegate community-driven efforts (such as forum/Seillib events) as he sees fit.

Once again, this is pretty much a mere extension and formalization of the role he has already been taking on in practice, but the hope is that this will allow for more frictionless operation of the site and reduce confusion. After all, it's rarely been ideal for me (Cless) to get personally involved in (for example) banning or demotion decisions when I could be coding new features or releasing new content. Indeed, the latter is where I thrive. The former, uh, not so much. To reiterate, this has basically been the status quo for a while, but it can cause confusion when e.g. people don't know who to go to for certain tasks or who's responsible for what. And perhaps most importantly, it's weird to see Ultimew without something resembling the almighty "Webmaster" role !! ("Head Weebmaster" next?)

We also hope this will help us bring in additional hires. Although I'm actually quite active on cbox these days, that isn't necessarily always the case (or at least not consistently), so I miss a bunch of players who would probably make good mod candidates. That makes it a little more awkward when I'm the one tasked with making the absolute final decision, inevitably laced with caveats and hesitation. Of course, I will still grant the final approval on new hires and chime in personally, but the decision will be primarily informed by the rest of the staff team, with Ultimew's opinion holding significant weight, as well as my own experience. Therefore, we expect (and/or hope) to put more effort into seeking new hires and reaching out to the community in various forms over the coming months. If you are interested in becoming a mod on Pokemon Eclipse, please don't hesitate to submit a Mod Application - just make sure to read the post!
