For those who recall, we made an earlier announcement in which we established January, May and September to be our months of critical analysis of the zones (and shops). The moderators have discussed some of the issues that have cropped up with regards to zones and shops and we have decided to implement the following changes.


New Fizz City
Due to Rotom310's absence, Maskerade has been tapped as NFC's temporary Zone Admin for the for the foreseeable future. A reassessment will be made of NFC in the next few months.


Le Marecage Noir
LMN will be closed down permanently. This change will be implemented gradually. As of now, no new adventures may be started in Le Marecage Noir. Once the current, active, adventures have been wrapped up, LMN will be moved to the archives. It is our hope that we may find a substitute for LMN once this happens.


The Hatchery
Sneaze will no longer be updating the Hatchery as of this moment. A position as updater of the Hatchery will be posted soon in the FB Job Bureau. Until a substitute has been found, the moderators will be taking over the responsibilities of the Hatchery.

Hydreigon This isn't normal darkness...it's...advanced darkness.

Hello everyone!

Today's announcement is about the status of Shadow Pokemon in FB. There are a few basic things we are going to cover

1) Clarity and Bond Updates

Bond is being reworked so that negative bond does not exist, and in the place of negative bond we have a new system called Clarity. Clarity will allow you to not only purify your Shadow Pokemon into their normal forms, but also allow you to potentially make your Pokemon Shadow Pokemon as well. Clarity will be tracked in The Realm of Shadows (spoiler alert).

2) Official Shadow Pokemon mechanics

The rules for how Shadow Pokemon work have also been changed, including how they work in battle and outside of battle. If you have Shadow Pokemon, it will be important to take note of the changes.

3) The Realm of Shadows

The Realm of Shadows is our newest mini-zone, catered specifically for Shadow Pokemon! By adventuring in this zone, you can either purify Shadow Pokemon or shadowify your other Pokemon. In addition, with the addition of the new item, the Silver Umbra, you will also be able to catch wild Shadow Pokemon in the zone. With the zone's introduction, Tate will be its new ZA.

Entrance to the Realm of Shadows is only permitted twice per calendar year.

All details of the changes can be found here currently until they are edited in the various places they need to be.

In the wake of recent discussion regarding the FC reward ladder as well as various methods in which FC is earned in FB, we have implemented a few changes to the system in place. There is a brief summary on some of the changes and a few notes you might need to know:

• The FC Reward Ladder now features a few more options for your selection when you reach various milestones.
• The amount of Pokedollars earned from each step has been adjusted to $250 for every single step from 1 FC to 250 FC. (265 FC to 300 FC remains the same)
• Previously claimed reward steps cannot be changed to reflect new rewards.
• The amount of FC earned by specific shops has been readjusted in order to properly reflect the amount of work that is required to update that shop. Because of this, some shops will now earn FC on a monthly basis, opposed to a weekly basis. Please see the Staff Rewards thread for more details.
• Another related point of discussion has been the act of devolving one’s Pokemon. In order to simplify the process and remove the gate on those who are not updaters, the process of devolving a Pokemon will now take place in the Reset Documentation Thread. If you wish to devolve a Pokemon, please state your Pokemon’s level and species, which previous evolution stage you wish to change your Pokemon to, and then remove any level-up moves that are exclusive to the formerly evolved stage(s).

The winds of change are blowing across the land of Fizzytopia. There are a few announcements to be made regarding the following zones:

Arboreal Cradle
  • Congratulations to TheKnightsFury, who will be running The Arboreal Cradle: The Eternal Forest Zone.
  • This zone will act as one of the four main zones in FB and will be opening soon here on UPN!
Bedlam Ridge
  • Due to increased hostility from warring gangs, the Marshal has placed a blockade around the city’s entrance in order to keep visitors out of harm’s way.
  • Bedlam is now closed to new adventures. Stay tuned for more details…
Arcane Realm
  • Beyond the eternal forest lies an ancient kingdom, known as the Arcane Realm. A route has been secured allowing travelers passage to explore this mysterious territory.
  • Arcane Realm will be opening as FB’s newest Free-For-All Zone on the BMG forum with Lil’twick as its ZA!

Spring Cleaning 2019 Even Though its February and hence Winter

Hello everyone. As we all know, FB is a constantly changing place and its needs are constantly changing. This is why we're going to make a set of announcements:

1) Ex-Ad has not been in contact with us for months despite multiple attempts. Due to this, Gary and I are making the announcement that its likely Ex-Ad has just left. Currently, plans are in discussion about what to do in regards to this but nothing concrete has been set in stone.

2) Currently, right now, our main focus as moderators is on making sure everything is up to date and easy to access. It has come to our attention that things are not up to date and we are beginning to work on that. A thread will be put up to collate changes that community members think need to happen in order to make information accessible and current. We will also be focusing on making a beginner's guide as to what things do in FB.

3) Currently, discussions on new things will be slowed down and given less importance until this is finished and discussions have taken place as to what to do moving forward from EAI. While it's amazing to see how innovative our members are, currently, Gary and I are both leading rather busy lives and we both often don't have it to be moderator and game designer every single day. This does not mean that any discussion is shelved, nor is this targeting any one discussion in particular.

We really do thank you guys for your patience and support. You guys are great. <3

Hey everyone! It's your friendly neighborhood mod, Ana, here!

We've got two things to talk about today:

1) Breeding slots. As of late its been noticed that people have been using their breeding slots in order to trade Pokemon to other players who have used up their breeding slots. This is something we hadn't considered when making the system. Nobody is wrong for doing so, because this was no way a written rule, but it is our both I and Gary's agreement that this was never meant to be the intent of the system. So starting from today, no new trades or gifts of this kind. Any trade or gift that is occurring currently may continue and no one is being punished for this, but this is to put in writing that this is not allowed.

We understand the potential inconvenience of this, but we'd like to reiterate that what these trades do is allow people to exceed the maximum number of breeds they can do, which is not intended.

2) Moderation. With Ex having disappeared we have made no real progress with finding more mod candidates. Starting today we will be opening up a thread to allow for nominations and motions of interest to occur.

Hey everyone. It's been a bit since the nomination time so I'm happy to make an announcement on that.

Out of the four who were nominated, only two have elected to come forward: Naru and TKF. Given the fact that they were both widely nominated and that they are the only two candidates, we are opening the voting for these candidates now not to waste anyone's time.

Voting will last until the end of this Friday.

Hey everyone! It's me again!

So voting ended on Friday (actually it ended Sunday because I'm dumb) and after a minor discussion on how things needed to be done behind the scenes, I'm very happy to announce that, with convincing margins of 18-0 and 15-5 respectively, both Naru and TheKnightsFury are being elected as FB mods. This will bring us up to 4 mods, which will help us spread the load mode and give us some wiggle room incase a vacancy happens.

Thank you so much for voting everyone, and we hope this continues to be a good forum game for everyone.

Hi everybody! As some of you may have noticed there has been some work going on behind the scenes as we work to clean things up and implement a couple of things that have been brought up through community discussions. There is still more to come but for now, we'd like to announce the following changes and additions:

New Department Store -As most of you have probably seen by now, the Department Store has a new thread and has absorbed the TM Emporium. Be sure to take advantage of the opening week promotion!

Hatchery Update - Some of the Hatchery rules have been updated, these can be found in the OP but I will also include them here....

9. A trainer can use the breeding services more than once at a time, but a Pokemon cannot be in multiple simultaneous breeding services
10. You may not use one of your own slots to breed a Pokemon for someone else.

However, more exciting news, you may now exchange some of your Breeding Slots for Enigma/Type Eggs! Be sure to read the guidelines before making an exchange.

Move Tutor - Advanced Moves
Advanced Moves are now learn-able at the Move Tutor for specific Pokemon, including the Pikachu and Eevee Moves from LGPE! The Move Tutor OP has been updated, detailing the Pokemon capable of learning these moves and any additional requirements.
