On 17th October 2022, Pixelmon CEO — Giulio Xiloyannis — held a Twitter Space to introduce Pixelmon’ Affinity Training system, that is the ability to train your Pixemon creatures or unhatched eggs for affinity, so as to receive a Pixelmon Trainer NFT. The following is a recap of the Spaces followed by some of the Q&A’s answered during the live conversation.
The beginning of the Spaces, and many of the questions, were on the exact accumulation of affinity and its mechanics. Alongside this a lot of questions were related to our Trainer airdrop; further details on the Affinity Training, Trainers & the Trainer pool can be found within these two articles, Affinity Training and Spaces with Hong on Trainers.
After the airdrop the Trainer and tribe will be visible, but the gear will still be unknown. This means that although the rarity of the upper body trait will be visible, the other traits and therefore the Trainers overall’ rarity will still be unknown. The individual ranks of the Trainers will adjust dynamically as more Trainers are revealed. Trainers will be revealed through a one click, gasless transaction.
The new owner will be able to claim the source files if the 30 day period has been met, and so will every holder thereafter as long as they hold for 30 consecutive days.
After the allotted period for training and claiming has passed (full length TBA but at least 6 months), unclaimed Trainers will be minted from the contract and moved to the project treasury.
We’re currently working together with the Elite Trainers owners to give them the ability to customise one accessory of their choice for each one of their Elite Trainer NFTs. Timeline depends on the complexity of the designs requested, and will be sometime in November.
This will be reflected in the metadata of the Pixelmon and easily visible for buyers.
Yes you may — it might sell for a premium as it will allow new buyers to skip training.
No, Elite Trainers will hold that benefit individually, without needing to be accompanied by a Pixelmon.
The main difference is that for the Elite Trainers all attributes and all gear is of Elite level rarity, while for the Dragon claimed Trainers only the upper body clothing / armour is of Mythical rarity while the other gear pieces are randomised. Hence Elites Trainers are much rarer assets in all regards.
As of now, no, we might airdrop the Trainers in 2023 to old art Kevin holders but as of now the main sacrifice of wanting to hold the art unvaried lies in not being able to participate in the training mechanics, or to be precise, if one trains the background is updated.
Yes, the 3D source files will contain separate files for each attribute so by owning multiple Trainers you can create Trainers with mixes of the gear. These would not be new NFTs or Metadata changes, but 3D assets that you can use for personalised PFPs, avatars, animations and more.
The automated system accrues affinity on a weekly basis, but this is a good point, in 4 weeks we will try and run a manual script to shorten the wait by a few days for the people halfway through week 4 given how big the affinity jump is in that wee and for the fact that the people waiting will likely be a substantial number.
No, it would not, they would still retain that benefit as it’s one linked to the Token ID.
10,025, one for each of our Pixelmons plus one for each of our Elite Trainers.
More details on what Trainers are eligible for and our revenue share mechanics will be released in the coming weeks; follow our Medium Account, Twitter Account and join our Discord to receive Pixelmon’ latest updates and insights.
