Pokétime is the time-measurement continuum used in Pokémon Revolution Online.
Pokétime is identical for both servers, Gold and Silver.
Pokétime elapses at a five-times-faster rate than real-world time. While most Pokéminutes will elapse after 10 real-world seconds, there is also a 20-second interval every minute; as such, five Pokéminutes total elapse after a real-world minute, five Pokéhours elapse after one real-world hour, and one Pokéday elapses after five real-world hours. The super-enhanced rate of Pokétime lends players ample time to play through the multiphasic Pokédays, thereby affording them realistic chances to access time-exclusive features, such as Pokémon spawns at various phases of the day, contingent on their spare time throughout the day.
Please note that there isn't any interweaving correlation between the local time and Pokétime; the former is simply synchronized with the player's operative device of the game client, whereas the latter is initialized by the server PC's clock and thus is globalized for all players.
Pokétime encompasses more than just a visual effect; it's also used as an access- and feature-restrictor for gameplay functions, as delineated below.
Phases of the Day
For Pokémon-spawning mechanics, Pokédays are apportioned with conventional tri-phasic cycle; morning-time spans from 4:00 AM to 10:00 AM, daytime spans from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM, and night-time is in effect in the intervening time from 8:00 PM to 4:00 AM.
Pokémon-spawn control is the only known Pokétime-time restrictor that concordantly overlaps with all the visual effects of each phase.
As it pertains to evolutionary mechanics for PRO as of 11.06.2019 the Evolution's which require specific times, now corresponds to the correct Poke hours: Day (10:00 - 19:59) and Night (20:00 - 03:59). For example, Eevee will evolve into Espeon if levelled up with maximal Happiness between 10:00 and 19:59 PM, whereas it'll evolve into Umbreon between 20:00 and 03:59 continent of the same conditions.

In Goldenrod Underground Path, Chris and Brad have limited, varying hours of operation; Chris is open during conventional business hours from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, whereas Brad supplants his stead from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM.
