Shiny promo in TP

Post by Pokemon Knight »

So I just saw a shiny regice in the trading point for a whopping 150 points and I only had 120 seconds to get the points which was very stressful and probably a one time opportunity
So as soon as I got the points it was gone...
So I suggest making it 300 seconds for a shiny/promo(and maybe I can get a second chance to get it?)

But you can always make sure you have the 150 TP beforehand? That way you won't have any stress to get the points together if you ever encounter a shiny. That's what I always do, but I've never seen a shiny there once -w-
I don't think a prolonged time limit is really necessary, tbh.

I thought most people knew about that, my bad. I know it's frustrating :/
Instead of extending the time limit, how about a little note somewhere on the Trading Point page with the prices? It's long overdue.

I didn't even know Promos were possible in the TP :0

A price breakdown would probably be handy. I was only aware of the 150 for shinies because of an old post I happened to read on the forums.

Perhaps then it should just make people more aware that shinies cost 150?

I was only aware of the 150 several months ago when someone in the congrats topic was talking about barely being able to rush and get enough TP for the adopt, lol

So maybe that should just be included in the description in the TP, around where it's explaining that each adopt costs 2 points. It can add that shiny Pokemon cost 150 points.

So if a shiny costs 150 what does a legendary cost? Because regice was both and I’m not sure

I already got a promo from the trading point sometimes... it was 2 tp. But I never saw a shiny in there... I always saved at least 300 tp for the case that I will see a shiny some day 😁

The only promo you an get in TP anymore are legendary ones and they count as normal dex with 2 VC. The shinies cost 150 VC whether they are legends or other normal shinies. Sometimes a promo is released in TP and those shinies cost as much as 200 VC.
At one time, it was possible to put monthlies in TP and I would like to see that happen again with different pricing structure for buying and dropping in TP which I outlined in another thread. I don’t think more time needs to be added, just keep a lot of VC in the bank, just in case
