• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

ASB 6-Month Anniversary Promo!


oh man, good times.
Guess what? As of tomorrow (today for some of you), July 30th, ASB has been back for 6 months! To celebrate, we're holding a super-special awesome chocolately fudge-coated promo: any time from now until 11:59pm GMT on August 30th, players can post here to redeem their super-cool prize: an egg with the potential to hatch into any of the starter Pokémon from generations I-IV with its hidden ability unlocked! Scientists have yet to decide upon a name for this egg, and have opted for the temporary name of Eifie Egg.

Eggs have not been implemented in the database yet, so you can post here to claim your egg and a mod will randomize the Pokémon and gender. (Zhorken will distribute these in the database whenever she is able.) In addition, Pokémon hatched from these special eggs have a one in eight chance of being shiny! This doesn't really mean anything, since any Pokémon can be whatever colour its trainer wants it to be, but if you were ambivalent about your Pokémon's shininess before, maybe this will convince you to keep it that way. :O You are welcome and encouraged to trade these Pokémon for other people's hidden ability starters or whatever else you want; please keep discussions about this to the Trading Post.

A list of possible starters and their hidden abilities, for your reference:

  1. bulbasaur Bulbasaur (Chlorophyll)
  2. charmander Charmander (Solar Power)
  3. squirtle Squirtle (Rain Dish)
  4. chikorita Chikorita (Leaf Guard)
  5. cyndaquil Cyndaquil (Flash Fire)
  6. totodile Totodile (Sheer Force)
  7. treecko Treecko (Unburden)
  8. torchic Torchic (Speed Boost)
  9. mudkip Mudkip (Damp)
  10. turtwig Turtwig (Shell Armor)
  11. chimchar Chimchar (Iron Fist)
  12. piplup Piplup (Defiant)

Let the Eifie Egg shenanigans begin! (Can one of the other mods please randomize mine? :D)

Zhorken will probably want to use this list to keep track of who she's distributed Pokémon to, so if there's a random mark next to your name or something, don't worry about it.

Keldeo: female Mudkip
