This has been a long time coming, having soft-launched in October 2019. If you haven’t been on the website since, you’ll find a refreshing new look and feel on both desktop and mobile helping you find what you need much faster, as well as an all new Teambuilder experience for Custom Pokemon. To all returning customers, thank you!
Rawkhet has gone from selling on random platforms to our very own website in December 2016 and finally a design overhaul in October 2019. We have new features such as the Teambuilder to help us facilitate Custom Pokemon in the masses, additional validation at Checkout to check for potential errors, and robust post-Checkout guidance. Messaging and communication has also received updates and is clearer than ever. Perks of having our own website and not some locked down ecosystem like Shopify.
Slightly technical piece.
One of those days. We noticed some emails failed to send this morning, which happens sometimes. Because the failure rate was high enough to notice this round, we decided to finally move off SMTP¹ to the much more reliable and powerful Microsoft Graph API² (since we use Office 365 Enterprise as an email back-end anyway). This should hopefully now guarantee a 100% delivery rate with much more robust logging and security.
But this random post isn’t about that. As always, we performed unit testing³ to make sure all site components are still functional after the update. Green across the board! However, we decided to do a full scale integration test⁴ this round and literally buy off our own website. Whoops! It turns out the checkout message hasn’t been showing since October, when the site was fully redesigned. Another function was overriding the output. This has been fixed and customers placing new orders should now have much clearer instructions.
We get quite a few people asking if we can send the Pokemon they’ve purchased via Home – and the answer is no (as stated in the Trade Guide). Here’s why.
Pokemon Home is a hot mess. It truly is! You can’t trade on the Switch so you’re left with the mobile application. The mobile application doesn’t have a box view, opting to display Pokemon in Pokemon Go style (ugh). This makes it truly impossible to keep track of what to trade.
Next, Friend Trade doesn’t work the way most people think it should. Users must be in proximity with each other to trade which at the very least requires GPS spoofing (what is this, Pokemon Go!?). To top it off, you can only do 10 Friend Trades a day!
