When I went on the new GPX this morning, I saw the Shady Salesman. I clicked it, he asked me if I wanted a Slowpoke Tail for 200'000 points. I had 415'754. So I clicked ok, and I got the error "This cannot be used right now".
I didn't recieve the Slowpoke Tail, and my points didn't decrease.
For information, I didn't refresh the page. Did I do something wrong, or is it a bug?

Did the Shady man disappear ? Or is he still there. I guess that's why he's called Shady?

I didn't take note if he vanished from the page, because in my confusion I went to the old site to check my inventory. When I went back he was gone though sad.gif

He appeared twice already and refused to sell the SlowpokeTail to me both times. Salesman sure are annoying. :<
Joking aside I don't think it's a bug at all. Maybe we just didn't meet some requirements. Or didn't have luck.

o-o I'm pretty sure if I can receive the tail, then GiZmo certainly can... maybe you guys had a full party? Or maybe there's a limit on it at the moment...?

Yes, the only thing I can think of is that we probably had a full party. But still it doesn't make sense! Why would the Shady Salesman appear while having full-party if we could only buy the SlowpokeTail while having one slot open? Old Men and Tiny Eggs appear only when we have a free place, too.
It is a mystery ~

Speaking of which, are MissingNo. and Manaphy eggs available on the new site? Has anyone encountered them? They should be at the place where the Shady Salesman appears, right?

I recall getting a MissingNo. (#5 for the achievement cat.gif) from the Old Man last week on the new site (I also got a Manaphy egg while having both sites open, but I grabbed it on the old site before I could refresh the new site's page to show it), so they should be available on the new site. And yes, they appear where the Shady Salesman appears.

@Full Party I don't understand it either, unfortunately (insert Spock saying here). And lol at ??? reference cat.gif

The error just happened to me a second ago. If they disabled it then I'd think he wouldn't show up at all.

I saw the shady salesman few minutes ago, i had full party, so i tried to free a slot to see if it did anything.
As soon as i released a pokemon though, the salesman disappeared. So i don't think that's the case.

Bobda, if you don't have anything to contribute to solving bugs, it's best not to post. But it's a beta site-only event similar to how the Old Man and Missingno events work. (There have been posts about it in the update thread, also.)

I'm still willing to propose the idea that the Shady Salesman runs the same party check that the Old Man, Manaphy, and Missingno events run, which means you can't collect the SlowpokeTail if you have a full party (even though it's not a Pokémon.)

So then, why he appears when your party is full when the other events don't?

Yesterday I ran into the Shady Salesman and was successfully able to buy a Slowpoketail; I don't remember with 100% certainty, but I'm pretty sure I had a full party of eggs at the time.
