    Pound Release Guide

    Not finished yet. Last updated: 15 May (I need to make this more beautifuul!!)
    (This guide is based on what I have learned about Pound Release in the past few months. Once finished, I believe it will be a pretty complete guide on the topic.)


    The Time..

    Earlier, pound release threw out pets twice a day, (@9.47 am and 9.47 pm NST) but the schedule changed after January/February 2014. Pound Release is now releasing pets every hour. That’s both good, and bad, you choose.

    Thanks Rue!



    This guide has three sections.

    1. Public list of pets still in PR
    2. Basics
    3. Advanced, how to find your own markers, and pets not publicly known.


    Publicly Known UCs/RWs Still In PR
    These names have mostly been taken from ~Civilized (thanks for the correction @osiyo), ~Tidovis, ~Apastel. I have removed the names of pets that have already been released. This list is complete; I carefully went over all the known public lists and included every single pet I could find on them. Less important public lists that I also used include, (~reyblumaroorey, ~rahzia (deleted), ~PR_guide and ~Poka_dot_spots) This list used to be much longer but several UCs have been released in quick succession ever since the PR started happening 24 times a day.


    Listing in alphabetical order: {I’ll add color/species later.}
    Bustera (UC grey kyrii)
    But_ugly_boy (UC tyrannian skeith)
    Choco_0v0 (UC baby kougra)
    ChubbaWubba409 (UC darigan meerca)
    combusken43 (UC grey shoyru)
    connfettiii (UC darigan hissi)
    cozylen (UC plushie bori)
    cutiepie2719680 (UC darigan lenny)
    Lil_p0m_p0m (UC faerie ruki)
    Lil_Cutie_Pie_Shorty (UC mutant usul)
    lil_kc07 (UC mutant jetsam)
    LiTtLeGrEeNgUy (UC grey yurble)
    Lorkdalk (UC tyrannian bori)
    LoVe472 (UC tyrannian mynci)
    Lundenn (UC grey kyrii)
    Matagiank (UC sponge kiko)
    Matthew2629160 (UC mutant meerca)
    Mayalinda999 (UC faerie yurble)
    Mirotorau (UC maraquan kau)
    Mister_Mig (UC mutant jetsam)
    Morbidity (UC grey kau)
    Putrid (UC mutant scorchio)
    tiny14 (UC grey techo)
    Toqoia (UC tyrannian bori)
    toy22222222 (UC faerie pteri)
    Rumoll (UC faerie kougra)



    Basics
    (FOR BEGINNERS WHO HAVENT READ ~lot)

    What is PR

    What are Markers

    How To Stalk PR Pets: The Pattern

    This part is still INCOMPLETE. Most of the things that will be explained in this section have already been explained in neopets.com~lot (which is a very nice, comprehensive, in-depth guide for complete beginners) Until this is done, I suggest you go and read that page. ^_^

    [[ The pets are grouped in strings according to the first 2 characters/letters in their names. (e.g. Ba-, Be- , Ma- , co- etc. The pets of each string are released in alphabetical order. “_” is placed after z, that is “Cozy_” will be released after “Cozyz” ]]


    How to Find Your Own Markers
    (ADVANCED: FOR THOSE WHO ALREADY KNOW THE BASICS)

    Note: No guide, nor anyone on the PC ever shares how they find markers. They like to keep this to themselves because each one of them is competing with the others while trying to catch these UCs. This is my own personal method, that I came up with myself. I'm revealing it for the first time, only on clraik!

    You must have noticed that while ~sundrily does have an extensive list of pets stuck in PR, the list seems frustratingly incomplete when you’re trying to find lots of markers for a specific string.

    In this section I’m going to explain how you can find your own markers. It may seem difficult or tiring at first, because it involves searching neopet petpages manually, but it gets easier when you get the hang of it. And who knows, you just might find a UC unknown to the rest of Neopia, while you’re at it!


    Say, for example, you’re stalking “tiny14” and neither you nor the public lists have any markers for this pet. Here’s what you do:

    1. Choose a rw close to tiny14, e.g “tin” or “tiny.” Then look up petpages, containing these words with an easy combination of underscores and numbers, e.g 0, 00, 000, 1,11,111, a,aa,aaa,b,ab. You’ll be amazed to see how people used to name their pets back in the day. “ ‘Tin’ is not available? Oh, who cares, I’ll name my pet Tinnnnn!”

    2. Start by adding 1 digit or character, and go on adding up to 5. e.g, tiny0, tiny00, tiny000
    (tiny0 is not in PR, tiny00 isn’t either, tiny000 IS! )
    And that’s how you do it.

    Other examples:
    For Spirit_Link the uc mspp, I went with the word “Spinner” that comes before Spirit, and found “Spinner111” for a marker.
    For ChipsChum the uc grey chomby, I tried the words/misspells “Chile” “Chikey” “Chippy” and found Chile5, Chikey11, Chippy6 for markers.


    Interesting information:
    The publicly known UCs aren't the only ones in PR.
    Currently, pound is releasing pets that are on the account "pound_release"
    There are other accounts, including breik_u5 that also holds hundreds of pets from the time when the pound was broken (including UCs). However, the pets on the other accounts are not being released at this time. (credit: neopets.com/~lot)
    Who knows, once pound_release runs out of pets, neopets might start releasing pets from those other accounts.



    Notable Pets That Were Pound Released:
    coming soon


    Examples of UCs Found in the PR using the RW method:
    coming soon

    I'll appreciate all feedback on the guide. Please let me know if you find any mistakes and I'll fix them! If there's anything you want me to add, let me know. I'll give credit where credit is due.

    @alien it should be /~civilized not /~civilised

    It could also be helpful to note that just because a pet is on the lists and frozen doesn't mean they haven't been released *cough*Marcus_Ranshaw*cough* for those who haven't been following lists before.

    Great guide - thank you for starting it

    Yeah, that's why it's always better to view the pets you're stalking through their petpages, instead of their lookups; to make sure the owner is still "pound_release." I'll definitely add this somewhere in the basics section. Thank you ^_^

    It's ok, thank you for replying!
    Apparently it changes already, not on :15 anymore.
    I checked them myself and it seems to be somewhere around :30 now.

    It does seem to be different now, but I would keep checking between the two times just to be safe.
