The Legendary Pokémon Hunt
 
We recently passed 1.5 million clicks here on VRAC. But what's this? Special codes have made their appearances around Victory Road, and they won't be around for long. New ones will pop up every few days, so keep your eyes peeled and search for those special legendary pet codes and those for past promotions!

Oh, and don't forget to post here once you find a code, but don't say the code itself or where it is. ;)

Reuniclus July 1, 2014 12:47:27 PM

I got my pixie. This one was easy to find.

SpikyEaredPichu96 July 1, 2014 12:51:23 PM

I found one!


Aquablast July 2, 2014 06:48:37 AM

I found a Victini. I already had one from when I helped with VictoryBattles two years ago, but I don't care because Victini is awesome!

kakashidragon July 2, 2014 08:36:50 AM

I cant find one :(
Do the codes just pop up or what?

They're hidden in certain posts and places around the forum. You need to look carefully. :P

MattyBrollic July 2, 2014 10:26:26 AM

Im so bad at these things :(

It's like a library scavenger hunt, except it's in a rather large library...

Good luck...

EDIT: I'm a little confused here. I (kinda) get what I'm looking for here, but where am I looking for it? You're just throwing me out into the forum telling me to find codes. Are they in posts, or thread titles, or even on VRAC?

Cat333Pokémon July 2, 2014 12:04:11 PM

Maybe, maybe not. ;) The idea is to look everywhere. I'm going to post a bunch more codes later tonight, and I'll give hints for the ones that weren't found when I return.

Dragonite July 2, 2014 02:02:10 PM

and yet the post ID of the original post wasn't one? Come on, Cat!

Cat333Pokémon July 3, 2014 01:10:24 AM

All codes have the form of AAA-0000000.

Anyway, new codes have been hidden! Get hunting for 'em. Those should keep you folks busy for a while. ;)

Music July 3, 2014 01:49:18 AM

Nawww, they're so cute :)

PokeRemixStudio July 3, 2014 02:03:52 AM

Got them on the first link I clicked on

Music July 3, 2014 02:13:58 AM

Now this was a good one.
Am I spending too much time on this?
They just keep appearing

Well, used all my adopts, gg.

Cat333Pokémon July 3, 2014 03:02:19 AM

Nah, you're not spending too much time on it. Some of them are quite easy, so folks who just want to find something shouldn't have much trouble with that now. ;)

Aquablast July 3, 2014 05:21:00 AM

I got Terrakion. This was the hardest code to find, well at least in my opinion.

SpikyEaredPichu96 July 3, 2014 08:34:33 AM

Wasn't entirely expecting this one to work.


This was a good one

Still lookin'

EDIT:





And that's all my adoptions for the day. This is fun, thank you for setting this up Cat!

kakashidragon July 3, 2014 02:05:46 PM

Can u make this last all weekend? Cause i dont think i will be to look as long for these things.

I think I finally found a purpose for regex!


Reuniclus July 3, 2014 04:26:43 PM

Found another easy one

http://adopt.victoryroad.net/image/385292.png

EDIT
Found even more!

Found only latios + latias, zorua, yveltal and xerneas. I feel like I have clicked every single link... where are they?!!?!?

Just no making a spider. :P

coteup July 3, 2014 08:35:08 PM

Hey cat, what happened to those hints? :P


THE KONAMI CODE DIDNT WORK
GOD DANGIT CAT

Cat333Pokémon July 3, 2014 08:54:08 PM

Enough people found the good one that I won't be giving out any hints for those. :P

Music July 3, 2014 09:13:46 PM

This adoption limit is killing me

rip daily adoption limit.

coteup July 3, 2014 09:40:51 PM

I am dumbfounded right now. What am I supposed to do? I cant find any others no matter how hard I try.

PokeRemixStudio July 3, 2014 09:50:59 PM

Are there any that no one's gotten yet?

I'd love to find those but I haven't found any of them yet. I feel like I've been thrown into a shiny hunt, because I just can't get anything. Other than the ones that were literally thrown in front of me (which weren't the ones I wanted to adopt), I have no idea where anything is. I've tried the recent threads, as well as ones that would be appropriate for the specific Pokemon, but nothing's working. It just feels frustrating trying to find these codes now...

coteup July 4, 2014 05:43:23 AM

The ones I found haven't had much to do with the forums, just clicking random links on pages.

Cat333Pokémon July 4, 2014 09:51:17 AM

Hehehe, keep looking. And yes, there is one that hasn't been found yet. ;)

For those wondering, it'll probably last for most of the month, but the legends will be harder to find once I remove these ones.

NismoZ July 4, 2014 10:19:25 AM

I've found a few over the past couple days:


(edit: hold on how did i get that second cobalion)

I still haven't been able to find a few that the others have found, though...

Cat333Pokémon July 8, 2014 06:00:23 PM

Alrighty, congrats to everyone who found the pets so far!

Here's where they were hidden.
Azelf, Uxie, and Mesprit: Quote the first post of this thread.
Victini: The nickname for the Victini I adopted.
Latias and Latios: Bottom of the rules.
Terrakion: My post explaining the format of the codes.
Virizion: The edit reason for the aforementioned post.
Cobalion: The edit reason for the first post of this thread.
Xerneas, Yveltal, and Zygarde: New FAQ entry.
Manaphy: My visitor messages.
Phione: Originally my visitor messages, moved to a new social group name.

Still available:
Zorua: This one is easy enough to find. I won't give you any hints because it's not rare and won't be removed for a while.
Keldeo: Act like a computer nerd. ;)

I'll add some new codes soon. :)

You don't think I'd try that twice, would you?

Nah, that still won't help. I'm surprised your regex didn't catch it, though.

Reuniclus July 8, 2014 07:37:43 PM

"There's no code here, mate. ;)"
Nope, I don't believe you.

"You don't think I'd try that twice, would you?"
:cry:

Cat333Pokémon July 8, 2014 09:37:29 PM

I see NismoZ has found Keldeo. See, I didn't place it TOO tough of a spot.

;-; lies.

Okay, I lie, that was easy -.-

kakashidragon July 26, 2014 11:05:43 AM

So is this over now? I havnt one a single one of these since it began.

Cat333Pokémon July 26, 2014 12:01:07 PM

Pretty much, but I may have one surprise left. ;)

Dragonite July 26, 2014 09:47:03 PM

I get the feeling that this will be something that Regex is no help whatsoever with . . .

Plus saving the page and running the script is a pain in the backside.

Cat333Pokémon July 27, 2014 12:50:31 AM

Yeah, this one will be hidden in an interesting place. :P

Cat333Pokémon August 1, 2014 01:58:49 PM

I've hidden the final event of the show. ;)



Hey! Stop looking here. There aren't any pets hidden in my post any more. Or in plain sight. ;) The last code is hidden in a place where you wouldn't seek.

why do I feel like this tag was added just so Cat can mess with us like this?

No, he specifically added that to mess with me. D;

Cat333Pokémon August 5, 2014 09:47:54 PM

Hehe, nobody has found it yet. I believe only a single person actually has this pet, too, and it was grandfathered in from our original adoption system back in 2009.

Cat333Pokémon September 1, 2014 01:50:54 PM

Well, it's now the start of September, and as nobody has found it, I have removed the last special pet. MissingNo.'s code was hiding on the "Pet Not Found" page if attempting to view an invalid pet ID.

Congratulations to everyone who did find a special pet throughout the event!

I guess you win. Enjoy one final prize: whoops, it's gone.

I refuse to believe that I possess the one single Missingno. in existence. Seriously? (For clarification this is NOT a Missingno. received through this event, I had this since the transfer from the old system)

Cat333Pokémon September 1, 2014 05:07:10 PM

My belief is incorrect. *runs a database query* Huh, there are eleven that are owned by individuals. Three were imported from the original Floatzel Pokédoptables, seven were imported from VictoryBattles, and exactly one was obtained from this event.


GreenMan September 1, 2014 06:06:39 PM

I'm going to say I had one of the first when it was aviable I'm pretty sure. Got it back on Nov 21, 2010.

Nope, you got it in 2009. :P November 21, 2010 is the date Freeze transferred it to VictoryBattles. The original system had no dates in the database, although given your pet's ID (-4), it was one of the first adopted. (For those who don't know or remember, the ID numbers for the original system were simply made negative to allow compatibility with the existing VB pets.)
