Hi folks, we’ll be updating the estimated preparation time permanently from 12 hours to 24 hours.
Rawkhet Pokemon was founded in a time between jobs, and there was ample time to run 4 rounds of preparations a day. This was especially easy with the 3DS, not so much with the Switch. We’ve been juggling well with SWSH, although there have been many days where we had to go with 2-3 hours of sleep, juggling our full-time jobs.
From Team Rawkhet, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! This has truly been a wonderful December for us with the launch of Sword and Shield, and we hope everyone enjoys the rest of the holiday season as well.
Please note that we are on holiday until January 10. Normally, we would continue to trade even when we go abroad, but after the immense workload over the past 5 weeks (and the juggling we’ve had to do with our careers, myself as a Gym Leader), we have decided that Team Rawkhet truly deserves a break.
One of the big issues of dealing with a high volume of customers is the inability to provide real time timing updates. Unfortunately, the amount of variance is too high to estimate how long it would take within the Trade Queue before reaching a specific order.
Each Pokemon takes approximately 40-60 seconds to trade. That’s about a 10-minute variance on a 30-Pokemon trade, with most orders being 30-60 Pokemon. There is additional time overhead to establish trades with customers, lasting anywhere from a minute to 10 minutes. Additionally, when a hard network error occurs, trades cannot be conducted for 30-60 minutes.
