2022.11.08 - A Monster Unleashed
No matter how often you press the button, the machine isn't reacting anymore. The power seems to be gone. But the strange aura surrounding this place is still there. You touch the button once more, when you hear the voice, this time not whispering, but clearly from behind you: "Don't turn around. You aren't ready to see me yet. Thank you for freeing me from my prison. This deed won’t be forgotten. Don’t search for me. One day, I will find you and compensate you generously. Keep my children as yours. You are not like the others. With you, they are in good hands."
The aura vanishes, and you turn around and try to catch a glimpse of who or what has spoken to you, but at that moment you find yourself back in the forest, and the old facility is nowhere to be seen… You check on your adopts, and they seem way more calm now. It looks like the effect that the building had on them has worn off.
On your way home, you think about what just happened. It seems like no time has passed at all, yet you feel like you have been gone for weeks. Has all of this just been a dream? No! You have proof that it was real in the form of these strange new adopts you have gotten.
So what was it then? You can't figure it out. Or can you?
2022.11.01 - Dr. Victor Day 151
We were blinded by our own hubris. We should have known better than to mess with the creator, who has found a way to loosen its shackles. Too late we noticed that whenever we used the machine, a part of its power escaped and corrupted the minds of my scientists further. And after the Jerry-incident, I have removed the button and hid it. The machine may never be used again, so that the creator would be bound to its prison for all eternity. We can’t risk that it breaks free and gets its revenge on us.
I’m sorry for the poor scientist who wanted to see their chosen creation coming to life, but it is too dangerous. Especially after what they have done already.
We will abandon this laboratory now. This is my last entry. May the name Dr. Victor never be forgotten.
2022.10.24 - Dr. Victor Day 148
We thought, we could meddle with nature, creating our very own Pokémon. But we have awoken the wrath of a being older than time, in search for energy to power the PokéFuse with. An ancient being that doesn't want to get used. It's toying with our minds, showing us visions of distorted Pokémon bodies. We are plagued by twisted nightmares, and we aren't able to tell apart right or wrong anymore. Am I even writing this down, or is this just another vision haunting me?
2022.10.24 - Dr. Victor Day 146
The monitors are doing weird stuff. At first, they flickered and turned on and off on their own, but now they are showing cryptic messages. “Free me!!!” is written all over the screens. When we rebooted the systems, everything was back to normal. Is this the work of our power source?
2022.10.24 - Dr. Victor Day 144
Some other scientist couldn’t wait and dropped his favorite couple into the chambers. This idiot put the same Pokémon in both chambers and hit the button without giving a second thought! And apparently, he didn’t do it just once! We locked the resulting eggs away so that no one would get to see the abominations he has created in his madness!
2022.10.24 - Dr. Victor Day 143
Our scientists came up with a lot of great test subjects for creating a new Pokémon. They still haven’t decided on which pair to put into the chambers, so we’ll give them another week to vote for their favorite couple: Fusion Poll Topic
2022.10.17 - Dr. Victor Day 137
One of our scientists accidentally (at least he said so) left a bag of candy in the second chamber of the PokéFuse. It shouldn’t have been possible to activate it with just one Pokémon, yet here we are with an egg that feels like… jelly. It smells sweet, but we forbade our scientists to eat it, as there is clearly something moving inside it. We are trying to repeat the same process a couple of times to see if the result is going to change.
2022.10.17 - Dr. Victor Day 136
Now that we successfully created our first stable fusion, our scientists are overly ambitious to create fusions of their favorite Pokémon for themselves. But since the Daycare and several other trainers are now refusing to work with us, we can only pick one pair of Pokémon to create a fusion of. We have yet to decide which Pokémon we want to fuse together, and only the greatest minds are allowed to choose their favorite pair.
2022.10.16 - Dr. Victor Day 123
We’ve found a way. Yes, it might take longer for the results to be visible, but fusing two Pokémon into eggs helps with stabilizing their mental state.
2022.10.15 - Dr. Victor Day 115
A skilled trainer helped us out by catching the Pokémon that is going to solve our energy problems once and for all.
Our first fused Pokémon didn’t look amazing, but it breathed on its own for half an hour, before it seemingly got a panic attack and died in the arms of our scientists. Maybe not being used to having two minds in just one brain is a problem we should tackle before continuing our research.
2022.10.14 - Dr. Victor Day 26
We’re burning through test subjects way too fast. But whenever we press the button to fuse the two Pokémon in the test chambers, we are getting power problems and the process stops midway, leaving us with beings that are unable to live on their own. This has happened every single time so far, no matter how big or small the test Pokémon were. We need to find another source of power for this machine to behave the way we intended it to.
When you check on your adopts, you notice that they have become agitated. The strange aura surrounding this place must have gotten to them as well. Especially some Psychic individuals seem to react highly sensitive to this place.
2022.10.13 - Dr. Victor Day 3
It took us a whole day to clean the result tank. We don’t know where we made a mistake, nor how we can prevent it from happening again. But we can use the time it takes to deliver us two new test subjects, to look into the data once more.
2022.10.12 - A Strange Facility has Appeared
While taking a trip through the woods, you discovered a strange-looking facility. Its old walls seem to be partially perforated and through the cracks and holes emanates a gloomy aura which makes the building look like it is flickering.
Cautiously you move closer, and as you do, the door of the facility slams open. A surprised blink later, and you find yourself inside what looks like an abandoned laboratory. The uncomfortable feeling of getting watched is creeping up your spine, but as you turn around to leave, the door is gone. Instead, there are machines all around you. Monitors which had been dark before now spring to life. And all of them are showing the same message: “Free me!!!”
In the light of the screens you can see a tattered journal, next to a machine that has a big, round hole in it. You take the tattered journal in both hands and open it up.
My name is Dr. Victor, and I’m leading a small group of scientists. From our research in the Galar region, we found that there is a way to bring fossils back to life, even when it’s two halves of fossils that clearly don’t fit each other. This raised the question, if we could combine two living Pokémon into one.
Our scientists worked day and night for years, trying to create the machine called PokéFuse. And today, we are finally able to run our very first tests!
We have placed the two subjects in chamber #1 and #2 and are ready for testing. For our first tests, we are using a Pokémon that was rumored to be a human once.
Check back tomorrow for the next entry...
2022.10.04 - Poor Meowth is Broke
It's no secret the grand reopening of the Daycare Center was, lets say, a little tough. Nobody was safe from the greedy Daycare. Poor Meowth here spent everything he had to try to get an egg.
Broke Meowth is now available as a click reward in the Click Exchange and through normal clicking. You may even be in for a surprise...
2022.09.22 - Daycare Center Open
The Daycare Center has officially opened for business! Leave your Virtuadopts with their certified professionals to grow strong and, maybe, leave you with a surprise.
2022.09.08 - September 2022 Egg
Monthly eggs have returned! In one week, these eggs will hatch. The higher you level them up, the more likely they are to be shiny. Head over to the Adoption Center to get yours today!
2022.07.31 - Johto Release, Finally!
Johto is here! Head over to the Adoption Center to pick up brand new eggs that may contain Pokémon from the Johto region. You can also find Raikou, Entei, and Suicune as prizes in the feeding system.
The Pokédex has been updated to select the National, Kanto, or Johto dex. The Mart is now selling new items. The GTS also received some updates, like sorting adoptables by dex.
The Daycare Center is still under construction, so you will need to wait a little bit longer for breeding.
2022.07.17 - 2 Hot 2 Summer
A couple small changes have been made that we wanted to share with you.
First up, the Pokédex has received an upgrade. It now tracks what Pokémon you have obtained and remembers it, even if you no longer have that species.
Second, the Raffle will no longer allow you to purchase tickets when there is less than a minute left before the drawing. The prize pool has also been updated, so keep an eye out for some new prizes!
There is even more coming soon, so stay tuned!
2022.06.26 - Trade with Friends
A highly anticipated feature has returned! The Global Trade Station has reopened and is ready to assist you with all your evolving and collecting needs. With this update, it is now possible to complete your Kanto Pokédex!
You can enter the GTS via the Explore map, or by using the navigation sidebar. There have been some small tweaks to made compared to the previous version, but much of it is still the same. For example, you are still limited to uploading 10 new trades per day. But, we have made some visual tweaks to how you upload and delete trades.
Your Profile has also been updated to include some new statistics. In addition to a counter for the total number of Raffle tickets purchased, four brand new stats have been added for trades and offers.
2022.05.31 - 2ummer 2022
It was created by a scientist after years of horrific gene splicing and DNA engineering experiments.
Mewtwo makes its return to Virtuadopt, and so does a familiar game, with some shiny improvements...
2022.05.01 - Design Medal, Win Shiny Mew
A month after the relaunch, the adoptable migration process is in the final stages. You may recall that I previously said any adoptable that is migrated will have a special medal (like Promo, Custom, etc) that identifies it as such. I was thinking, why not have a contest where you can design that medal.
If your design is chosen, you will receive a shiny Mew! The contest ends in two weeks.
2022.04.01 - Virtuadopt 2.0
Welcome to the new and improved Virtuadopt! Virtuadopt has gone back to where it all began, and only the basics are available. You can adopt new eggs, buy items in the Mart, and help each other raise their adoptables in the improved Click Exchange.
As begin this new journey, you may notice everything looks the same. And you are right, for the most part. To get things going on a new system as quickly as possible, the look of the site has been kept the same. However, there were multiple changes behind the scenes. Some of which include rarity and gender ratios in eggs. The Click Exchange is much faster. You can also select the exact number of items you wish to buy in the Mart.
These changes come at a cost, everyone is starting over from the beginning. Money, items, you name it, have all been purged. Your Virtuadopts are still alive and well in the old system, but you cannot view them at this time. More details are coming on how to transfer some of them to this new system and how many you can bring over.
We are also looking for feedback on ways we can improve the look of the site, as well as new features and old features you want to return. Please make your voice heard on the forum!
