    No, I can tell the difference. Especially by this point in the game doesn't matter which female/male shop owner I send them to sometimes they say "it's not what I had in mind" or w/e the exact message despite serebii saying "Any male/female" shop owner.

    Judging by your comments, it seems like I get the most visitors out of you guys. I have no idea anymore why does could be. If someone knows why, that would be great. Up until know, most decisions in Join Avenue seem quite random to me. To Nexus, I have never had any problems with Serebii's list, apart from some quotes not being there. To me, all variations of "take me to a shop you recommend", "take me anywhere" and such are all correctly listed on Serebii, so it "should" not be wrong for you. One question, if you soft reset those people, can they be send to another shop, or is no shop you have"what they had in mind".

    yeah for example if I get one visitor displays the message that allows you to take them to any shop with a female clerk, I keep sending them to shops with female clerks (SR with each failed attempt) until they find one they like and it gets points. Lately, I've just been sending them to the 2 same shops since they seem to favor those and refuse to go to my other shops with female clerks. Also, not expecting an answer to this just curious if anyone had the same problem or something similar but looks like I'm alone.

    Okay, bumping this for a debunking.

    My Avenue is now lvl. 13, with approximately 120 invited visitors. I still only get three visitors each day, but "chain shopping" occurs more often, almost every day. Though, it usually stops after the second shopping (so on average, four shoppings happen each day). I still haven't got any Gym Leaders to visit the Avenue. Only one of my friends has set up shop in the avenue, the rest are NPCs.

    Have anybody experienced something similar?

    EDIT: Perhaps it has something to do with the fact I haven't defeated the Elite Four yet.

    I am around rank 27 now. My daily visitors have capped out it seems.

    I keep getting 7 visitors a day, excluding gym leaders.

    Oh and the shop where you get 1 item a day is really pointless. I have it at level 9 and only get level 9 / 10 prices. And the museum / antique shop will give you hard stones 80% of the time too, including the S Rank pieces. It is really tiring to lose 1000 dollar buying them.

    And whenever the chain shopping sequence should start "Hey, try that shop over there", the visitor will say "maybe another time".

    I just thought of something: There are some services that my dojos still lack despite both of 'em being Rank 10 (and the avenue itself being rank 90): the Lvl 5-20 Training Levels. Hopefully they'll appear when I have the avenue reach level 100 =x
  8. Level 51

    @Present: Hard Stones can be sold for P500 to the ore maniac in Iccirus City, meaning you get a profit even if you get nothing but Hard Stones. What sucks are the Poke Balls and Shards x_x

    @BlakDragon: I don't think those services actually exist, but you can try lol.

    Also, Rank 90 Join Avenue? The Magna Coil has been good to you o_o

    I think I remember hearing that doing well at Pokestar Studios, Musicals and I think the PWT all contribute to getting more fans at Join Avenue

    Proceeding in the storyline certainly ups the number of visitors. After I beat Drayden, my rank 13 Avenue suddenly got 4 visitors a day instead of 3.

    Chain shopping also occurs more often now.

    A question, though: The shops change appearance at rank 4 and 8. Do they at rank 10 as well, or is their rank 8 apearance their final one?

    if you don't do the celebration you can't get the item rewards, I suppose.
    Or change what store you'll build in other people's avenues

    The stardust/pieces/rare candies once you reach x levels after the parade
    And by change what store, I mean changing yours
    the one you will build in other people's avenues

    If you decide you don't want to build a nursery when someone passes you, if you can't get into the building you can't talk with the assistant and change it to a berry shop or whatever

    The male ace trainer
    you talk to him
    you decide what shop you (THAT IS YOUR CHARACTER) will open up if your guy ever shows up in another person's Join Avenue.

    If you can not get into the building you can not change this.
