—The Pumpkin King

The Pumpkin King is a boss NPC that can be found on Route 6.

It is an animate, semi-anthropomorphic, outsized pumpkin that tries to intimidate all passersby on the route, attempting to menace the qualifiable trainers into a battle.


Boss rework 2019

The Pumpkin King was part of the Boss rework in early 2019 and was updated at the 10th January 2019. The boss rework was issued and is still ongoing to improve the boss NPC's in general. All reworked bosses are coded in Python and not in Xanascript anymore, which gives new opportunities. Reworked bosses can now have held items as well. One of the biggest benefits is, that the Python script sees when if the server crashed in order to not count a lose in case the player fought against the boss while the server crashed. In such a case the player can simply re-fight the boss.

The boss rework implies a challenge for players on any experience level who do enjoy doing bosses because of the three difficulty level every not story related boss has, which ensures that bosses are challengable for newer players and also be a chellange for those who have a high Pokémon knowledge. Boss teams are decisively reworked and only contain level 100 Pokémon. EVs and hold items do vary among other things - also depending on the difficulty level.

  • Easy: bosses have no EVs and no hold items; as well as a weakened moveset. Consecutive win rewards are also not available.
  • Medium: bosses have 252 EVs in each stat and hold items.
  • Hard: bosses have 400 EVs in each stat and hold items. Furthermore, the player is not allowed to use in-battle items such as Revives.

Rewards

Goldenrod City Berry Shop

Thereupon defeating The Pumpkin King, you will inherit access to the berry shop in Goldenrod City; this is the only vendor of EV-reductive berries in the game, thereby providing a more expeditious avenue to obtain them for those who are affluent enough to outlay the expenditures for them.

Standardly

The standard subsets of rewards will be randomized and rewarded each time; however, upon defeating him three-consecutive times, you will get a extra reward. Other than for other bosses there are no rewards based on difficulty levels as this boss has no different levels.

There is no shiny counterpart of Pokémon rewarded from the randomized prizeset; only the selectable prizes have one, which is 1/4,096 in fractional notation (0.0244%, in percental notation).

All rewarded Pokémon will be initialized at level 20.
