The Great Easter Egg Swap
Hosted by Forever.

Hey guys Easter has come again, which means another egg swap! This time unfortunately Kip cannot be hosting it, so I'll be hosting it alone. Kind of scary considering how active the thread can get sometimes!

Welcome, one and all, to PokéCommunity's fifth 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 8th April and once you have received a Participant Number. The swap will end on the 10th April (Easter Monday) (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. Forever has 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, I 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.

Everyone added! Except the person with Pearl. Sorry, but only generation 5 games can count for this. :( Now... with that out of the way:


I'll also vm some other past participants to get them back, hopefully. So let's see how we go! Also, the 10th yeah... it's going to be extended a bit. :3
