    A new sub-forum has been added to the forum! Now under the Info Desk, you can find the Event Archives where you can see the past events of Lake Valor! Everyone has put a lot of work into the submissions and participation for these events and we wanted to make them viewable so you could look back and see the amazing community we have here!

    Dear my lovely Members and Friends of Lake Valor,
    It is with a heavy heart that I am stepping down from my Admin position on Lake Valor. I loved getting to be on staff for so long, I was approaching my year anniversary of being an admin but due to some unforeseen conflicts, I must step down. I am starting college so a lot of my time has been tugged away to deal with my education over my enjoyment. I would hate for my own mindset to negatively represent the Lake Valor staff team, if I have come of as such to any user in the recent months, I am sincerely sorry. I want to thank you all for the amazing time as staff, maybe someday I will make a return as a moderator, but for this time I must bid you farewell as a staff member. I will still be around the lake, so if you want to message me please feel free to, I just will no longer be apart of the staff team. Thank you again for the amazing year and a half of working with Lake Valor!
    Love,
    Cadbberry
    Your signature knockoff chocolate and Ex-Cadmin

    Lake Valor now has a shiny new logo icon! Instead of the words "Lake Valor" superimposed over a Great Ball, we now have this:

    [​IMG]

    It is now Azelf's head superimposed over the image of a lake underwater - the same head shape that's used on our various rank images and forum logo.
    This icon will be used on our social media platforms from here on out, and will also be used as the icon for our Discord server. I hope you find it as pretty as I have!

    We've had a bit of a switch up in our Pokémon sections (unfortunately not an ACTUAL Switch-Up though, RIP Nintendo Direct)!
    • PokéPelago has become 3DS Pokémon Games. ALL of the Pokémon games (including spinoffs) that you can play on the 3DS can be discussed here.
    • A new section has been created called Classic Pokémon Games. This is for all of the games that you CAN'T play on the 3DS, including spinoffs.
    • Pokémon General remains the same, but spinoffs and old games shouldn't be discussed here anymore. Please use the appropriate sections and enjoy!

    We have some good news! Profile covers have returned for Donators!

    That's right, now you should be able to edit your profile cover without any trouble at all. We're sorry about the delay, but as we had to work with third parties to get this fixed, it was out of our hands. In the end our third party was so bad that we found someone else - that's why unfortunately you WILL have to reupload your profile covers.

    Still, it's back and we hope you will enjoy. :)

    We have increased the price of the VIP user group upgrade in the LV Shop. This is to match the changes of increased PokéPoint gain around the site, especially considering we are pondering even more ideas on how to get more PokéPoints aside from just posting. It will be trickier, but not impossible! We also want to make sure folks who donated money to the site to get VIP don't feel like their donations are worth less than the shop item, as we are very thankful to those able to donate physical money towards the sites betterment. For those of you that can't, the option is still there, it'll just require some extra time and grinding.

    We also will be adding a new item to the shop soon that we think many of you will be interested in. What could it be? Watch this space!

    The Pokémon Catcher can no longer be turned off, as turning it back on did nothing. We are putting this as our highest priority bug fix and trying our best to make sure this doesn't happen again. If you were affected by not being able to turn the catcher on, PLEASE message me asap.

    I fixed the issue where the Pokémon Catcher wouldn't appear and got my Wipposuke emote! A working toggle has been added to the Palette Town and Lake Valor themes.

    We have some incredibly exciting news! You all asked for it, and we have delivered: Shiny Pokémon now have their own special indicator!

    See here:

    [​IMG]

    When you encounter a shiny out in the wild, it'll have special sparkles around it. Please note this ONLY appears when you're encountering a Pokémon. If you want to indicate it's a shiny in your collection, you should add a symbol to the Pokémon's nickname.

    We hope you enjoy this change and if you encounter any issues with it, let us know. :)

    Hello dear LV members,

    My adventure as a member of the staff ends today. My life outside of Lake Valor is demanding more attention and that is more important to me than LV at the moment and with great regret, I have to say that I am resigning from my positions. I will not be leaving LV, but matters that have to do with the staff and the running of the site I have to leave in the very capable hands of the current and future staff. So, I may very soon not be up to date with info anymore, I have a feeling that they are hard at work. Feel free to shoot me a DM or PM or talk to me in the LV Discord, where I will probably be spending a lot of time still. It is just the stress of all the things combined that brought me to this decision. I want to avoid having a breakdown and that means stepping back to be able to oversee it all. I will see you all around!

    Love, MarineAurora

    Did you receive a new trophy today? Congrats! We've added a new trophy for introducing yourself and adjusted all of the posting trophies to make them easier (but still challenging enough) to obtain. We hope you enjoy your trophies and the extra points they award!
