Valentine's Day dragons are limited edition dragons that can only be bred or found in the cave for a brief period surrounding February 14 every year. During this period, Valentine's Day dragons may lay multiple eggs, causing the Abandoned Page to have many previous-release holiday eggs in it.
Valentine's Day Dragon MechanicsEdit
Valentine's Day dragons are limited to two cave-born eggs per scroll. There is currently no cap for bred dragons. Users can check their status via the Breed Limits help page.
For many years TJ09 held a policy that no limited-edition dragons would be re-released from the cave. The only way to obtain a previous year's Holiday dragon was by trading for, or catching bred eggs from the Abandoned Page. However, in 2018, a Valentine biome was introduced, allowing users to catch cave-borns of previous Valentine's Day breeds for the first time.
Valentine's Day dragons only produce eggs of their own breed during a one-week window before the Valentine's Day holiday. Outside of the Valentine's Day window, Valentine breeds will always produce eggs of their non-holiday mate's breed. Due to this limited breeding mechanic, Valentine's Day dragons will often produce a multi-clutch of 2-4 eggs at this time. Valentine's Day dragons are also given precedence in the Abandoned Page during this time, and will appear ahead of any non-Valentine dragons in the queue.
Traditionally, Valentine's Day dragons have been single-gender breeds, with the gender alternating every year (odd years female, even years male).
Sweetlings have a unique alt mechanic. During the original 2010 release, a bug caused certain users' eggs to automatically abandon, despite the users not exceeding the scroll limit for Valentine's Day breeds. The bug was fixed, and the users affected by it were given a black and red alternate Sweetling sprite.
When the scroll limits on bred Valentine's Day dragons were relaxed, the alternate coloration was scroll-linked. Any Sweetling on the scroll of a user who had alternate Sweetlings would also become an alternate. If an alt Sweetling hatchling was transferred to a non-alt holder scroll, it would become a regular Sweetling again.
In 2018, it was announced that the alternate Sweetling mechanic would be retired. However, following feedback from users, the mechanic was merely adjusted. Now only offspring of an alt could become an alt, and only if it is on an alt holder's scroll.
