Ok but seriously, has anyone found where they spawn yet? I've been looking for eons!

The edge of the barrow woods just gives me the regular shluppbun, and occasionally I get another regular shluppbun battle out of gloom glen village square, no sign of any around the mana falls and I'm not sure where else to look and I've been trying at all hours of the day

Maybe my RNG luck is bad, maybe i'm looking in the wrong places, maybe this is a seasonal thing? I don't know

Any ideas? :o

@Shyads
Yeah, it's driving us nuts on the Discord too.

Komodo has said that it's obtainable, but it's the rarest vivid. He also said that the encounter is "configured differently" so we've been trying to decode the meaning of that ( ̄ヮ ̄;)

Configured differently could mean that it might only appear at a very specific time or even only on specific says where there be on a specific day of the week or even on a holiday.

It is written in the normal Pixdex that they only coming out in spring...
That needn't to be true, but the rest seems to be fitting. At least you can find Shluppbuns in the Barrow Woods... so why not a Crocus Shluppbun too? Maybe. Until now I fail every time to find one... xD

At the very least, I'm like 90% sure we can rule out this being a holiday thing, the shluppbun entries in the vivid pixdex don't have an indicator that says "easter pixpet" like the shluppbuns in the regular pixdex

And I am hesitant to say it'd be a seasonal thing, when adventure was launched, there was no indication the draooks wouldn't be findable after fall's over, although their vivid pixdex entry suggests that's when they're more likely to spawn (viv dex entry in the spoiler below)


Also, if vivid draooks and crocus shluppbuns ARE seasonal, I feel like Komodo wouldve said something when adventure launched, and wouldn't have added an entry for the crocus shluppbun til spring. And if draooks were seasonal, I feel like he might have said crocus shluppbuns were like the draooks, and not phrased it like theyre configured differently, that implies something special to me but maybe im overthinking stuff

(btw sorry if all this has been pointed out in the discord already, I like using forums better cos it makes this stuff easier to track and find lmao)

I am trying to think if maybe the moonstone you get from fighting the glitched nurbun could have something to do with summoning an encounter? That'd certainly be unique in the game so far, I think my next move will be messing around with that




UPDATE I have tried the things that immediately came to mind to try with the lunar stone, here are the results:
  • Using the stone while fighting the shluppbun encounter in gloom glen village square: didn't give me the option to use it from my inventory, nor did the stone even appear on the use item or turn into egg battle screens

  • Using the stone on a shluppbun encounter at the barrow woods forest edge: same results as fighting the one in gloom glen village square

  • Trying to give the stone/talk to the shluppbun in the homely hamlet mayor's house: no dialogue options present on either screens, nor does 'use item' do anything (block ID's: 416 & 419)

  • Trying to combine the stone and the shluppbun egg in my adventure inventory: no option present, nothing has changed when clicking use for the stone while egg in inventory

  • Clicking 'utilise' on the stone at various locations and various times: gloom glen village square yields no results in morning, day, evening, night or glitch hour, nor does the mana falls, nor the homely hamlet village square, nor the barrow woods forest edge. Had the bright idea to try starflower meadow and the pixpet gardens too since normal crocus shluppbuns are normal shluppbuns that ate enough flower petals to change into a new species, and same, no results

  • Tried resting for a couple days in the pixpet city gardens with shluppbun egg and lunar stone in inventory: no change to stone or egg


  • I have exhausted my ideas so far :c I am open to more suggestions on things to try!

    Agreeing with Shyads on the holiday thing -- Komodo said it's obtainable, which to me means it's currently obtainable, otherwise why would he say it? xP

    Though I won't rule out the possibility of it being available only on certain days of the week. Komodo could be sneaky like that...

    Also @Shyads I think your theory was a good one, even though it didn't work out. None of us considered using Vivid Shluppbun's evolution item. What we've tried so far is playing as various pets that we thought might enable Glitched Crocus encounters, such as regular Crocus, Vivid Nurbun, and Bloomfer. No luck so far though.

    At this point I think I might be overthinking it too, so my current theory is that "configured differently" just means it's extremely rare, so I'm spamming encounters in the various Barrow Woods areas.

    Good luck to everyone who hasn't given up on this yet. xwx

    Tried something else today: fought and defeated 100 glitched shluppbuns at the edge of the barrow woods in one adventure session

    Result: no glitched crocus shluppbuns spawned after that aaaaaaaaargh

    Yo @Komodo could we please maybe get a hint on where/how to find these slippery devils? I'm racking my brain here and nothing else is coming to mind, were any user's attempts close?

    Looks like it is a rare find exploring gloom Glen village square then. Found one myself you explore gloom Glen village square until you get the wha button to get the battle.

    Got the egg with my level 99 Shirking at 25 percent chance. Egg is on my profile for interacting

    A special encounter where it says "You're suddenly being ambushed!"
    Also, I'm too under leveled to get it's health down, it keeps spamming sleep and change of heart

    Now just have to hope the event doesn't have a cooldown time so that I can farm them.

    I found and caught it too. Thanls for the hint!
    But (in my case) it only appears, if it was the first pixpet I saw after starting the adventure.
