Explorations is a feature that was first implemented to GPX+ on September 13th, 2010. They were created to replace the old event system as well as to introduce new means for obtaining certain Pokémon and items. Other site-hosted contests and competitions, such as shiny races and art contests, are however still hosted by the administrators in addition to the Exploration feature.

ExplorationsEdit

Explorations are task-oriented quests which take the player through a story to get a reward. To progress through the story, the player must complete each task required in the order they are presented. The reward could be a difficult to obtain Pokémon egg like Unown, a rare item such as a summoning item, or even a Legendary or Novelty Pokémon egg.

There are four different kinds of Explorations: Tutorial, Rare and Novelty Pokémon, Items, and Special (Legendaries). The Rare and Novelty Pokémon and Items Explorations are generally available at any time, with only a few exceptions, and can be embarked upon numerous times so long as their cooldown period has ended. Special Explorations reward Legendary Pokémon and only last for one month; three are rotated in every month, and the user much choose which one he wishes to complete (the Black or White Token Account Upgrade allows for the completion of two Special Explorations per month).

Explorations can be canceled by the user at any time. If the user cancels an Exploration, he or she cannot restart the same Exploration for a number of days dependent on the Exploration. Additionally, if the user cancels a Special Exploration, it will still count against the number of Special Explorations he may embark on that month. Should a user be unable to complete all the tasks of a Special Exploration in time, the Exploration will be canceled automatically and the player will not receive a reward.

To start an Exploration, the user must meet certain requirements. The three standard statistics that are used as requirements are:

  • Number of Total Interactions
  • Number of Total Pokédex entries
  • Number of Total Achievements

In some rare cases there may be additional requirements however, such as owning a certain Account Upgrade. Each Exploration also has a point fee called an Embark Fee which is listed next to an Exploration's embark button. Additionally, after completing a task, the user's party must contain an open Party slot; they can nevertheless have a full party while performing the task itself.

The different tasks required to complete each Exploration fall into one of several categories. The user must either:

  • Have one or more specific item(s) in the player's inventory.
  • Have one or more specific Pokémon, possibly of a certain level, in the player's party.
  • Have a specific amount of berries, kind of berry, or a combination of the two fed to the player's Pokémon.
  • Have a specific Pokémon locked to the player's party while he or she completes the task.
  • Find one or more specific Exploration item(s) around the site.
  • Interact with a certain number of Pokémon, sometimes using a particular berry.
  • Beat an NPC in the Battle Tower or battle in the VS Seeker.

Regular items, when needed for an Exploration, can be obtained before or during the Exploration and disappear from the player's inventory after the task is completed. Exploration items are found around the site in the same way as regular items, but they cannot be sold to the shop and are therefore not available in the Backroom. The Itemfinder and Dowsing MCHN and different weather effects do not affect the chances of finding Exploration items, but Exploration items still have a much higher chance of being found than regular items do, increasing over time. When specific Pokémon are required to complete a task, the Pokémon must be obtained during the task that calls for them.

Future ExplorationsEdit

Tropius ExplorationEdit

It has been hinted by Commander Wymsy in a status that "An Exploration based around Tropius" may be in the works. Further details about and the validity of this Exploration are still unknown.

Legendary ExplorationsEdit

It has been revealed by Commander Wymsy that there will, eventually, be an Exploration for every single Legendary Pokémon not available through a summoning item, notably, including Arceus.[4] As of June 2013, the only remaining Legendary Pokémon left is Arceus. It is not known if this will include the Gen VI Pokémon.

Summoning Item ExplorationsEdit

An announcement topic has revealed that Normal Explorations for various summoning items are in the works.[5] Currently, the expected Explorations not yet available include an Exploration for a Lustrous Orb, Adamant Orb, or Griseous Orb, and an Exploration for an Enigma Stone.

Light and Dark Stone ExplorationsEdit

The March 2013 Site-Wide Shiny Hunt thread has stated that the items rewarded for the event, the Light Stone and the Dark Stone, will eventually be made available through an exploration some time in the future.[6] It is not certain if the two items will be available through the same or separate Explorations.
