    Default Serebii.net Event Database - Release Discussion thread

    From Serebii.net

    For the past few years, we've had a simple event page dotted with basic details about the events of the past. This page had the details for the Pokémon but was rather hard to navigate, and to top that off, we stopped updating it last year. However, for the past couple of weeks, my good friend Dragonite & I have been hard at work on the Serebii.net Event Database. This database contains almost 600 different event entries from around the world making it a vital resource for all of you event collectors. We have a variety of different navigational methods including the ability to check the details of events by Pokémon species and by year. However, despite the amount of events, we may still be missing some so if you see that we're missing any, just let us know.

    I really love just browsing the Event Database out of boredom, so making it more organized is a big plus, because I love seeing just how many event Pokemon there are

    How fortunate that I have the forum in my address bar, otherwise I'd completely forgot how to get to the forums XD, Is the Site down right now? I keep timing out when I try to access http://www.serebbii.net/index2.shtml
    Have you heard of a SNES game called "Tetris Attack"? It's possibly my favourite game of all time.

    Have you heard of a popular Series Called "Pokemon"? It's possibly my favourite Series of all time.

    Oh wait... That's most likely what you're here about.

    Yeah we suffered a server hard drive failure. The site should be back in a diminished capacity in a few hours with it back at 100% by Sunday at the latest

    It's nice to see the end result, much better than any other resource on the internet. Good that it'll be updated frequently now, in comparison to the old event page

    Actually, it is somehow even worse than the old list and definitely not better than any other resource on the internet. Every single page in it has countless errors, some of which are blatantly wrong and not even possible to screw up and yet are.

    For example, how was a 2007 Japanese Jirachi event distributed to Pokemon Platinum?

    I noticed some a re missing Screen shots...I have some of US B/W wondercards and I just took a step-by-step of DW Togekiss. If Serebii is interested in them just tell me where to post 'em (my email is down or I would use that)

    I noticed many events that were missing, like some of the GTS events. If you want details on anything not listed just ask.

    Oh, that's not necessary. I don't like using the wonder cards on it. I use the wonder cards when there's nothing really special about the event so nothing to screenshot.

    Also, will Korean Pokemon ever be listed? Initially there were rules against trading them, but ever since I hosted the first NoK's in my shop and the rules were changed, people are comfortably trading them as higher value events.

    I agree Korean Pokemon events should be listed on the Event Database, since they aren't region locked anymore.

    I agree with the Korean events as well. Why were they locked in the first place? I have a few and tried trading via GTS a week ago but could not trade it and it said I wasn't allowed

    The reason they were initially locked was because the only way to get them onto a language of game other than Korean in 4rth gen. and below was through ROM's, which are illegal on this site.
    Now, of course, Korean events would be a great addition to the database for those who would like to learn about these events.

    Thanks to serebii I've been updated in all the events so far and the only missing event-exclusive pokemon I don't have is deoxys and a celebi
    lol kinda ironic due to the fact the whole sites mascot is celebi and is one out of two so far I don't have and that of 200 other pokemon missing from
    my pokedex.

    Can you start listing Korean, Hong Kong and Taiwanese Events in your EventDex?
    I'm not sure why you list Japanese and Singapore events but not those

    you guys do a great job and I really appreciate your work.

    sorry if this is wrong thread.


    comparing a trade i received of this Vivillon and checking alternate resources you may want to check your Vivillon Paris info.

    I believe is should be a cherish ball, not pokeball as you have listed. This could cause some confusion with trading and legitimacy claims.
