Restricted - That Means You Can't Have One!

by ladee_sarah

NEOPIA CENTRAL - Have you noticed that all the new pets are Limited Edition or Restricted? Well my guild certainly has, and judging by the conversation most people aren't too happy about it although quite a few of us already have four pets but that's another of our qualms.

It wasn't so bad when I started playing Neopets, only the Poogle was Limited Edition and I could have got on of my very own if I had stopped to think what Limited Edition really meant.

Chomby (Limited Edition)
There are 280,000 Chomby in Neopia. The Neopets staff tell us that they come from Tyrannia, we can all get there, so why can't we catch a couple, house train them and then sell them on the black market? It's probably because it wouldn't be very nice and they are shy.

Cybunny (Limited Edition)
280,000 cute little Cybunnys hopping about the place, that's actually a lot. But then again it's not when you consider that there are 34,497,506 Neopians out there. Coming from the very cold snowy regions of Neopia it's a bit obvious why there isn't a black market for these carrot eating Neopets.

Draik (Limited Edition)
The Draik appeared in Neopia not long ago, I and many many other people arrived at the Create-a-Pet page all excited at the thought of getting this brand new pet. It was only an hour after they were released and they were all GONE! There are only 5,000 Draik in Neopia, so do the maths - we don't get one.

Grundo (Restricted)
The mobile waste disposal units of Neopia, they eat anything and everything, aren't as hard to get as you may think. Even though you can't get them the usual way if you take a trip to the VirtuPets Space Station you'll find the very special Adoption Agency, which is just for Grundo. Either it's very unfair to all of the other abandoned pets or someone doesn't like Grundo very much so they hid them away where no one would be able to find them.

Ixi (Limited Edition)
The newest Neopet... isn't it just gorgeous? Well not once you find out that there are only 1,000 of them and you can't have one!

Jetsam (Limited Edition)
I must admit it's more of a disadvantage to the Jetsam than to the rest of Neopia with this pet being Limited Edition. I certainly don't want one. But I'm sure someone out there does, in fact 520,000 Neopians already do. Why aren't there more? With the Smugglers and the Pirates roaming the high seas of Neopia wouldn't you think that the Jetsam would be on the move?

Koi (Limited Edition)
Hmm… since the destruction of Maraqua aren't all of the Koi looking for a new home? Yet there are still only 225,000 of these fishy little pets available to the citizens of Neopia. The Koi are friendly and fun loving, they're not going to have any trouble finding new homes, so why make them Limited Edition at all?

Krawk (Restricted)
The elusive Krawk, everyone wants one, except of course those people that already have one. And there aren't many of those people, 798 of them in fact. To get a Krawk you must buy a morphing potion of some description or get your hands on a Krawk (petpet) then take it to the Fungus Caves to be transformed into your very one pet.

Poogle (Limited Edition)
330,001 out of 330,000, how did they ever manage that? A morphing potion probably... the Poogle was the very first Limited Edition pet, I think. So maybe it's time to move on? There are so many other Limited Edition pets no one would miss the Poogle would they? It would be a sigh of relief - one pet that they can actually get.

Tonu (Limited Edition)
And finally the Tonu another pet that the average Neopian can't have, only the super duper fast people who were online at the right time. Actually I'd be happy if I could just get my hands on one of those ultra cool orange and purple eggs that the Tonu hatch from... I don't really need a Tonu.

Ixi Not for sale / in existence - - -


So really, if you weren't fast enough to get one when they were released. You either can't afford one or you bust your bank account and buy a morphing potion. And how many of us can afford one of those? The four new ones anyway....
