Well, i've a different idea / request than a apparance boost rate (even if i'm really not against) : Why not for the Legendary / Events Map Specials to turn OS on ? I know very few people have it now, but lending support could make a comeback, because when you miss some rare sprites aka Shiny HGSS2 / DPPt because well you don't want to use a Masterball but you don't want to loose it too, and could help people to find and have a real chance to catch EVERY (Shiny) Legendary

And why not ML too. Just my point on this thing ><

I've wanted something like this for a while with the roamers (just for the off chance of finding a retro), but I don't think it's possible. The problem isn't that OS is turned "off" to spite us, it's that it only works in the pokemon's native areas. If you were to find a peppermint sentret on route 29 (where they're normally found), I'm pretty sure you could use it...but if you found peppermint sentret on say route 46 (ust adjacent to 29), it wouldn't work. I'm pretty sure os is set up in the coding that way, so it'd be time consuming and difficult to change, rather than something that can just be flipped on/off.


but increased appearance vee's really want ><

I can put Eevee back in rotation for January, since it has so many evolutions. Deal?

Also re: Odor Sleuth, minagi is correct - it only works for Pokémon's native areas. The details are foggy - it's been years since I coded it and I sucked at documenting how/why things are done a specific way - but if I remember correctly, this was specifically done as a countermeasure to cheating, not so much to prevent it from being used on events (which is why it works on events if they have a native area, and this has never been a problem).

This applies to the Fluffy Tail, too.

It's a thing that could be changed, but as was implied, it'd take an overhaul of the system to change since Odor Sleuth and Fluffy Tails are already sort of shoehorned in and had to be made to work within the current system's limitations.

I thought of a solution while writing this, but in order for that solution to be viable I'd have to change everything.

(If you've ever wondered why in some games they take ages to implement minor QoL changes... this is why.)

Well i've caught too much eevee this month but why not Eevee + A new one ? For some people Eevee will not bring something new ?

I see for OS / FT. Why not up the catch rate for them for one month only o something like that ? I don't see any other solution without doing a new item

The non-legendary map specials are never something new because they're available to everyone, albeit once only.
