27/4/2015:
  • Added full support for EVs including items functionality up to 5th generation.
  • Implemented the command /ev <position [1-6]>[, <username>|<post to send it to the trade channel>].
  • Modified the /iv command to display the EVs between brackets.

12/4/2015:
  • Fixed few parts that caused NPCs to freeze.
4/4/2015:
  • Fixed Outrage, Thrash, and Petal Dance.
15/3/2015:
  1. Battle System:
    • The client now waits for the server to switch a Pokemon. (Jinji)
    • The server can force the client to switch specific Pokemon without the user's request.
      Note: this enables the support for Phazing and switching-based moves.
    • The following held items will be effective in battles:
      • Leftovers.
      • Scope Lens.
      • Lucky Punch when held by Chansey.
      • Razor Claw.
      • Stick when held by Farfetch'd.
  2. Held Items:
    • Client support for held items was added.
    • Right click menu for items in the backpack window with "Give Item" and "Discard Item".
    • The Pokemon's menu now has Take Item options, thanks to Aevero.
    • Added server support for held items.
    • Any newly caught Snorlax will be holding Leftovers by default.
    • Any newly caught Farfetch'd will have a 5% chance to be holding Stick.
  3. HUD:
    • HP bar uses the three available colours; Green if the HP is greater than 50%, Yellow if the HP is greater than or equal 20% and less than or equal 50%, and Red if the HP was less than or equal 20%.
    • HP bar's formula is corrected to indicate the real measure of the remaining HP percentage.
    • EXP bar is using blue colour. (Aevero)
    • HP bar's formula is corrected to indicate the real measure of the remaining EXP percentage for the Pokemon to level up.
    • Non-Volatile statuses are now visible on the HUD. (BlackSeven)
    • Pokemon icons are now updated to Aevero's new sprite pack.
  4. Hover Menu:
    • Some alignment was done.
    • Held items are now visible on the hover menu.
    • Non-volatile statuses are now visible on the hover menu.
      Note: this includes the hover menus for HUD, chat (both statuses and held items need to be sent from the server), trade windows.
  5. In-Battle Screen:
    • Opponent's Pokemon is drawn larger, not exactly double, but its size was increased to the limit where it won't overlap the info bar.
    • User's Pokemon was doubled in size.
    • Aevero's new sprite pack is used with the full back of the Pokemon.
    • User's battle info shows both held item and non-volatile status if existed.
    • HP bar on the user's battle info uses the 3 colours: Green, Yellow, and Red; depending on the remaining HP percentage.
    • HP value was added to the user's battle info to indicate the correct value for HP instead of forcing players to look at the hover menu.
  6. Hotkeys:
    • 3 hotkeys were implemented, and fully configurable from the PWOOptions.ini by selecting any item with scope 8 to be used and the ASCII key for that hotkey
  7. Masks:
    • The number of possible player's masks is configurable from the 'Skins\Settings.ini'.
      Note: new packet system is needed to support the addition of many masks without contentiously editing the client, and the new system should be more optimized if it was implemented.
  8. Mini-Map:
    • Route 5, Splitting River Reserve, the L-shape for Route 40, the discontinued shape for Route 42, and Mt. Mortar were added.
  9. Window Layout:
    • Default Windows style window was implemented in the client without the usual custom border.
    • The client can switch between the Default Widnows layout and the custom layout using the 'Skins\Settings.ini' file.
  10. Follow Sprites:
    • Follow sprites are now using the new template that Aevero is using.
    • The size of the follow sprite is now depending on the actual size of the sprite file.
    • The follow Pokemon is now the first un-fainted Pokemon in the party.
    • The Follow's Pokemon happiness percentage's formula was fixed when you press Space-key facing your Follow Pokemon.
  11. Pokemon Support:
    • All fifth and sixth generations Pokemon were added without any special forms.
      Note: we can have different forms like Mega Pokemon, and special forms of Pokemon, but it will require server updates.
  12. NPCs:
    • NPCs can have sprites of Pokemon, the Pokemon sprite have been added by Jinji, and the NPC's name is used to select the Pokedex number of the Pokemon.
    • The battle NPCs' movement bug when they aren't ready for re-battle was fixed.
  13. Chat History:
    • Chat history is now stored in the client, and the number of saved chat messages is configurable by setting 'ChatHistory' in the 'PWOOptions.ini' file in the 'Game' section.
  14. Pokedex:
    • Clicking near the chat windows when the Pokedex window is opened will not trigger "leave channel" action.
  15. Server Commands:
    • /giveitem <Position 1-6>, [Item Name].
    • /takeitem <Position 1-6>.
    • /discarditem <Item Name>, [quantity].
    • /retrieveitem <Item Name>, [quantity].

Lumi you son of a sweet kitten! Lol, genius and I love all the updates you've made. Man now I wish I'd waited a week to do the CC Quest. Still, I think it's an amazing improvement. It was a good gold sink at the time, but the quest really wasn't worth the money put into it. Even if it was to get a chance to fight a lvl 70 Mewtwo. -pronks off to play around Mt. Silver- Happy New Years Lumi!

What reason is there for it to be so expensive though? All it serves as is a time gate that puts most people off from playing.

Even when its cost was 200k it wasn't expensive, I think. I had no problems buying my wind-surfboard. It's an item too helpful, it's necessary to access many quests and maps, in addition to travel to other region, so we should pay a fair price... only throughts :p . But it's not too bad lowering the price, I always see the start players complaining about it.

One more time, good work Lumi, you're really dedicated to the game. :D
Thanks~

Good job Lumi! Boss updates! Love the price reductions, in everything!

Fact is the surfboard isn't really as useful as it once was. What with trains in existence. All it is is a time saver, much like the bike is an expensive time saver. Every place a person needs to get to, there's tunnels, trains, caves, warpers, boats, etc. You don't need it to get to any gym. Though you can use it to get around walking.

Surfing is only truly good for getting across the water quickly -and for free-. Hunting in the water quickly -no fishing pole required!- and..naturally. Getting from Johto to Kanto, but only for that first time. Who surfs back between the regions once they've got access to the train? Most ppl hate that little Falls area. No good Pokemon, no battle NPCs, just a cave.

Besides that, its a gold sink that only works on one portion of the populace. Newbies. The bikes are a sink for old rich ppl, the surf boards are sink for newbies. It's just an outdated form of a sink. What with most newbies automatically spending all their money on Pokeballs, escape ropes, potions. Stuff they don't know that they don't need (yet), because they're used to the handhelds.

Go to the hobby shop and ask how much a wind surf costs. You will be shocked :p
But seriously, 200k was good because it forced players to learn about the market and about money management. But oh well, that only means I can buy their awesome Pokes for a much lower price because they won't have experience in negotiation. Fine by me :p

200k was a good price for a time period where prices were inflated through the roof, and there was an Auction house for easier navigation.
I half agree with this price drop, but would also be okay with it being raised again in the future once the Auction house is back.

What if some players don't want to sell their Pokemon? Can't this be considered as forcing a certain play-style or something, especially when it comes to a necessary item like Wind Surfboard?

Also, updated the first post with a minor update~
