I think a Skype event would be fun! Or some sort of chat. For me at least, it would be cool to meet new people

Maybe a playthrough of a chosen Pokemon game? With rewards for the fastest finish time, completed dex, highest level Pokemon, etc.

We already have had a challenge event planned almost all year because we thought GT would be in like July lmao. That being said, I have challenges covered. Haven't thought of a good name yet, but Trade-Off Challenge (for those of you that know the basics of it you know why it has this name!) is probably gonna be it.

Singing contest +1 also cat dog should host it because honestly i'm a bit tired of placing and not getting an emblem to signify it and i'm also tired of the judges not posting results on time and last year they weren't posted at all from what i remember so offense to the judges of previous contests but u kno ;(

A word search, crossword, and other word games.

I have one in particular I'd like to do where you have to guess two Pokemon that share some the same letters. Like if the clue was "_ _ A _ _ L E R" you'd have to figure out it fits both Graveler and Stantler.

Or maybe a collaborative 10-Year banner that we can probably use in a theme that is released a couple weeks after the anniversary!

Like, we make the art for the style collaboratively (eg read/unread forum icons, theme background etc.), and Audy or anybody with some real XML skillz can string them together to make a theme!

I've only got two ideas (for now)

Design A Pokemon Competition - Self explanatory really but yeah, this will encourage users to use their creative side which could be purely text based or using their own drawings.

Highs & Low's of your time at Pokecommunity - A thread for people to post their best and worst times of being a member of PC since it's been around for 10 years now, I'm sure there will be a good few!

I dunno if a theme could be pulled off, but some other form of art could be
Design a Pokemon sounds cool too, and I'd really like a spriting contest so that I could show off something at least. /brick'd
I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?

How about the contest where we post snapshots from the anime based on selected themes? That was a pretty nifty idea from the get-togethers I've attended :D

I've seen Marcin post here and I'm guessing he already suggested this (didn't really read his post lol) but nevertheless, I'm saying it. A PC GTG without a writing competition will be a PC GTG that did not have a writing competition. Which is sad, so hooray for writing!

Also, WTP PCX special! Design-a-Pokemon was fun too, despite me not being able to join last time. A competitive battling event that Danica can't join should be held too! Movie nights are always amazing. There's a myriad of fun events to have!

EDIT: I don't know if this is a plausible idea, but can there be a TF2 event of some sorts? MvM and normal multi-shizz?

I love the sound of a Design-A-Pokemon Compeititon. It was fun hosting it alongside deku last year, and it was quite the hit. So I'm sure it'll be just as fun as last year. I love the idea of wordsearches/crosswords etc, and a writing comeptition sounds fun also! IRL catch up would be awesome if I didn't live on the other side of the world though haha. What's really caught my eye though is the movie nights. I've never been to one, and form what I've heard they're awesome so I definitely think they should be included. :D

Oh wow, ahah that's a great idea. Perhaps you'll have to not only give him a voice, but say something witty and hilarious? Great idea!

Crossword puzzles.

Can't have a celebration without 'em.

Also the Lerroux voice event because that will probably be one of the only ways I can actually take part in this event. Competitive battling would only result in me eating a very large portion of humble pie.

Everyone knows that the internet is managed by millions of tiny gnomes and
goblins working in sweatshops in Africa and Eastern Europe. Do you really
want to encourage that by staying on here all day?

Why not stay up all night to get lucky instead?

A Roleplay/Writing events sounds fab fab fab to me.

And since it's ten years, why not themes that include the number ten in it? Like, TEN THINGS I HATE/LOVE ABOUT PC. Or online battle events where pokemon have to only be level 10.

or a new slogan event

- I know this passed but idk, an event based on Olympic style competition and must involve Pokemon and PC (I'll try making creative ways to do some) and "countries" can be either types or regions, or countries/regions in real life. Again this is only one event. Team with most gold medals win. But its friendly competition of coarse. I can't host, its out of my league. Problem I can see is what mini games can we do. but yeaa that's what i can make up right now.

-Taking a picture of things what looks like a Pokemon in real life, ex; a tree that looks like a Sudowoodo or a formation of rocks that look like Kingler. (No wildlife) etc;

And AMV contest. That'd be epic. If I remember correctly, the PPC held before the previous one had it but its successor didn't. I want it to return.

OH OH OH OH! Why don't we have a Pair-a-Random-Person-For-a-Day Event?

How about a Spend-The-Entire-Day-With-A-PC-Staff-And-Bug-Them-To-Death-To-The-Point-Of-Almost-Banishment Event? (That could be a decent event minus the bug them part :3)

Or a Gift-Supportership-To-A-Random-Member Event?

How about an Edit-a-Photo-of-Nica-and-add-green-teeth/remove-green-teeth/photoshop-Nica Event?

Something unique would be really fun. Not just the staples.

What happened to the Summer GT? I had a whole summer with nothing to do. Now school give me no free time, basically.

With the photography contest, could we use Instagram in some way?

Also, I'd love to host and judge an event. I'm never been chosen to for some reason.

And mental block with events since some of the ones I want are already mentioned. I'll post when I can think of new ones!

Oh, so something along the lines of a lucky dip? Ooh, that would be cool! But how would you enter? Just sign an application from or template? The problem though is keeping things fair? How would we fairly find a person to hand supportership to? Random generator? Who will be responsible for generating the names? Just a few questions, if this were to be considered! But I like the idea nontheless it sounds quite cool!

And, I agree, I think for this get together, we need some unique events, some that we haven't seen before, or haven't seen a lot of.
