    - Trophies have been renamed, they are now called Medals. This is the way it was before we moved to Xenforo, and it definitely makes more sense.

    An update from the Development Team

    Now for something a little different, we're going to give you an insight into what we're up to behind the scenes and how we're progressing.

    - Development is progressing nicely on our brand new theme, which we previewed last month. The theme is almost ready for Patron testing. We have no timeframe for when this will start yet, but you'll be the first to know.

    - Once Patron testing has concluded, we plan to open it up to the rest of the Donators. Remember, early access to new features and themes is a Patron perk, so be sure to donate if you want be involved as soon as it happens!

    - We are working with a third party to fix the Discord Bot. We apologise for the inconvenience, but it is currently out of our hands. We hope to have the Bot back online as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience!

    - Are there any bugs we need to work on that are inconveniencing your experience at LV? Let us know, and we'll get to fixing them as soon as we can.

    Hi everyone, we've got some good news and some bad news. I'm gonna start with the bad news.

    - We will be dropping support for the following themes: Palette Town (and its variants), Lake Valor and Rainbow Rocket's Hideout.

    What this means: We will no longer be attending to any bugs that are specific to these themes, and we will also no longer be making any adjustments or improvements to these themes.

    Why this has happened: These themes are incredibly difficult to work with. They were created at a stage where our skills were lesser and therefore they are not even nearly coded up to the standard that we deem acceptable. Therefore...

    - Valcadia (our brand new theme) is almost ready for Patron testing, then Donator testing shortly after. Once we have squashed out the bugs and made any important changes, this theme will go live for all users to enjoy.

    Valcadia has: Greatly improved mobile optimisation and support, improvements to the Pokémon Catcher, a design friendly to old and new users, a much sleeker, cleaner design and plenty more improvements that are still in the pipelines.

    With Valcadia, we plan to recreate some of your old favourite themes in the new style. Keep an eye out as Valcadia will release with a light mode, for users who prefer a light theme to a dark.
