    This is indeed a solemn moment - for it is the moment when this little side-event has kept going for a whole year.

    365 Days

    Eggs have been traded, many have been overwhelmed with joy and wonder at the sight of a mystery Pokémon hatching. Sure we've had our ups and our downs, but this event is fast becoming more of a tradition than just an event - and it's all thanks to you guys coming to participate. There's no denying it; we were one of the most successful events this summer in GT8 (most views, most posts, most participants), and we even had outstanding support when it wasn't a Get-Together back in Easter, proving that this event can easily stand on it's own.

    And now, we're back where we belong. On New Year's day, look at your egg hatch and remember - we kicked ass. A toast to our success and many other years to come!

    Thanks guys. x

    Welcome, one and all, to PokéCommunity's fourth Great Egg Swap!

    How Does it Work?

    1. Breed ONE egg. It can be absolutely anything you like - the more unusual the better!

    2. Register your name here. Use the registration form below to register you name and friendcode. It will appear in the participant list and you will be assigned a number. You cannot begin swapping until you've been assigned a number.

    3. Get swapping! Swap your egg with someone using the standard Wi-Fi trading system, then swap that egg with someone else. Keep swapping with as many people as you can and earn points. The person with the most swaps at the end of the event wins a shiny new emblem (and second and third too, but only not as shiny). We would prefer if you asked another person to swap via. VM or PM (their names will link you to their profile).

    4. Report it. Once you have completed your swap, post here using the report form below detailing who you swapped with. You need to do this to claim your points. 1 swap = 1 point for each participant.

    You can start swapping on the 29th December and once you have received a Participant Number. The swap will end on the 1st January (New Year's Day) (the exact time tends to vary depending on how the event plays out - we will give you a time closer to the end). You can register all throughout the event, but bear in mind that the sooner you do it the sooner your name gets on the list, and the more swaps you can do!

    And of course, after it has finished, be sure to post which Pokémon you got!

    A Few Rules...

    1. You may only breed ONE egg yourself. Once you have traded that egg, you cannot breed another. Once you have traded you must ONLY use that egg to trade with - you cannot switch it out with any other eggs.

    2. You may only use one game to swap. You cannot swap eggs using multiple games.

    3. The swap is open to Generation V games only (Black & White). No Generation IV games (Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold and SoulSilver) are allowed. However, you are not restricted to just Generation V Pokémon. Breed whatever you want from any Generation!

    4. Your swap points will only be counted when both users post to report the swap. Kip and Forever have final say on who has what points. Your points WILL NOT COUNT if both of you do not post using this method. If you're still unsure on how it all works, we suggest you have a look through last time's thread.

    5. Once you have swapped, you may not swap with the same participant again until you have both swapped with another participant. Try to avoid swapping with the same person - instead swap with as many different people as possible.

    6. DO NOT LET THE EGG HATCH. This is essential. If you have to put it in a PC Box in order to prevent it from hatching then do so. Just make sure you can find it again.

    7. TRY TO AVOID TRADING TRIANGLES - if you're swapping in a triangle it's just the same three eggs going round and round. Try waiting for others to come online. You may not deliberately exclude participants in order to selectively gain points - this sort of behavior is not only immoral and indecent, but a bannable offense. Anyone caught in a trading triangle pact will be disqualified.

    8. NO HACKED EGGS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. You may not use cheat codes or any form of modding software to create an egg that is not legitimately obtainable in the games (e.g. a Mew egg). Anyone caught doing so will be disqualified from this event and referred to a moderator.

    Registration Form

    Registration has now closed. Sorry.

    Username: (Your PC username is required, but you may add a trainer name if you wish. It will appear in brackets next to your name.)



    Report Form

    If you're the first to report the swap:

    Swapped with: (Participant Number) + (Participant Name)

    If you're the second, quote the first post:

    (Quote of first report)

    Confirmed. Swapped with: (Participant Number) + (Participant Name)

    Feel free to post comments or discussion points along with the report, just make sure the report comes first so we can keep track of your points.

    Remember: If there is not two participant numbers in a confirmation post (1 in the quote, 1 in your post) the points will not count.

            There was nothing. Followed by everything. Swirling, burning specks of creation that circled life-giving suns. And then we reached to the light.

            Added everyone! As a note, it'd be nice if you just wrote your exact friend code without "-" for future people signing up, because we're c/ping directly even nicer if you could use our format.

            Oh, and just so you know, you don't need to include your in-game nicknames, some people just wish to do so. :3;

                  Wow - the list is filling quickly. Early sign-ups means better swaps! :D Hope you're all breeding some interesting Pokémon.

                  Remember - we start on the 29th!
