Happy Anniversary, Pokemon Uranium!
Four years ago, Pokemon Uranium version 1.0 was made available to the public. What started as a nine-year passion project by creators JV and Involuntary Twitch quickly turned into a global sensation, getting over 1.5 million downloads and attracting the attention of such mainstream gaming media outlets as Kotaku and IGN. Although circumstances forced the original creators to cease development -- a situation which could have easily been the end -- devoted fans refused to let the project die and came together to resurrect Uranium. And now here we all are, four years later, still going strong!
To celebrate Uranium's landmark anniversary, a new Mystery Gift is now available to claim! This special Pokemon has a dreamy new appearance and comes with four previously-unavailable egg moves -- and if you're lucky, it could even be shiny!
But that's not all the news we have! While we know it's been almost two years since the 1.2.4 update, we wanted to offer some reassurance that we're still working on new content. So today, we're announcing that this year's anniversary Mystery Gift is also a sneak peek at what will be the first of our post-game content updates! We still have a few finishing touches to add to this next update, but we're now just weeks away from having it ready for release, so be sure to stay tuned!
TO CLAIM YOUR MYSTERY GIFT: First, RUN YOUR PATCHER by selecting "Check For Updates" in the main menu (this lets you see the special custom sprite). Next, select the "Mystery Gift" option to receive your gift. Finally, speak to the delivery man in any PokeMart or the Bealbeach Dept Store to pick up your gift.
Remember, YOU MUST RUN YOUR PATCHER to see the event sprites!
