I've heard your plights, and for the moment I offer v184.108.40.206 as a fix. But yeah I've disabled the artificial day and night cycle for the moment to try and find a solution to the artificial calendar thing we've got going on. It's been screwing up the date in game and making it so people can't get the event Vulpix. 2512036 is still the code for that, hopefully now it should work.
v3.0.9, the Valentine's update. Quite a few changes here, I won't go over a lot of them since the bulk of it is in the updatelog included. All I'll say is that the Valentine's event is available in Selinus City after beating the 4th Gym. There's no new story updates in this patch.
How long a game lasts is subjective. The person who makes it may finish the game in, say, an hour, whilst a new player finishes it in 3-4 hours. Why not download it yourself, play it, and then tell us how long it is? No need for sass when someone doesn't have a definitive answer about something so arguably meaningless and subjective
