Turnout for Egg Swap last year was so low that I think it's best to run it for the full two weeks this time. It's more of a slow-burner event than something fast-paced like it used to be.

I'll also be running this mostly while on vacation, so updates may be slow.

It's summer! You know what that means!

Welcome, one and all, to PokéCommunity's sixteenth 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 your name and friendcode. It will appear in the scoreboard and you will be assigned a number. You cannot begin swapping until you've got a number.

3. Get swapping! Swap your egg with someone using the standard trade system, then swap that egg with someone else. Keep swapping with as many people as you can.

4. Report it. Once you have completed your swap, post here using the report form detailing who you swapped with.
1 swap = 1 point each.​


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

This event will run the entire length of the GT from 12th - 27th August. I am on vacation for a lot of it so update may be slow.

A Few Rules...

1. Breed ONE egg for this event. Once you have traded that egg, you cannot breed another.

2. Do not switch the egg you receive with any other eggs you happen to have in your game.

3. You may only use one game for the event.

4. DO NOT LET THE EGG HATCH. Trade directly from a box to prevent this from happening.

5. Your swap points will only be counted when both users post to report the swap. If you're unsure on how it works, have a look through last time's thread.

6. Once you have swapped, you may not swap with the same person again until you have both swapped with another person. Try to swap with a variety of people.

7. Avoid trading in circles - it's just the same eggs going around and around. Try waiting for others to come online.

8. Do not deliberately exploit the system to boost your score - (through excluding players, trading pacts, etc.). Anyone caught doing this will be disqualified. If you suspect any player of being in a trading pact or are somehow cheating the system, you can PM the hosts anonymously.

9. NO HACKED EGGS. Do not create an egg that is not legitimately obtainable in the games (e.g. a Mew egg).​

If you're the first to report the swap:

Swapped with: (Number) + (Name)



If you're the second, quote the first post:
(Quote of first report)

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

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

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

Excellent as always! Just get the points and thread tidied up and this should be good to go.

Hoping the turnout is a bit better this year yeah, Discord-wise it seems a little busier in terms of trades so hopefully it'll be a bit more bustling!

Hiya, preliminarily going to say the event is fine as long as it's updated before go time, however if it isn't we'll have to at least put it on hold until we hear from you.

Also, what is your Discord handle now perchance?

Heyo. Just coming back to this now. Apologies, it has been quite busy for me. I'll update the thread text now and work on graphics when I get back from work.

My Discord handle is scruffykip

Do not worry, you're all good!

Thanks for the Discord handle, you should be able to see the EO channels etc. on the server now.

Event approved! Just make sure to get the banner updated and event ported over to the GT Stage as soon as you can ^^
