Yeah that kind of caught my eye as well, but when I read the description I thought "Wait wha-It gives everyone increased exp?". The last bit was kind of questionable as well: "you and your friends will all be affected!"
Made me wonder if there's some kind of friend system until you cleared it up with that. But, does that make it non-P2W? I mean everyone's benefiting, but they're still paying for it. Huh, I guess so. Haven't really looked at the EULA in a while but it doesn't sound like it infringes on it at first thought. Seriously though, you guys should raise the price...I mean a server wide experience boost for $2.50? Actually all of the packages are $2.50 while being different but better I think?..that confuses me as well..
^On second thought, it does sound more P2W-ish because everyone on the server benefits from this but not the people who are not online. So the people that missed it will probably get that vibe as well because of how much everyone else would be able to advance in that time.
Next was the random shiny Pokemon. It sounds like a random online person will receive a random shiny Pokemon or one of their Pokemon will become shiny? Sounds like an unattractive package, but thinking of it in an abusive way..if it's a random Pokemon then that means it could be a starter (Matched if not stronger than Legendaries imo) or a Legendary and if the donator has friends or if a staff member is online they could potentially receive the Pokemon and trade it to the donator making it P2W, wouldn't it? (Well, actually it could just go to a complete random as well. Considering the 'friendly environment' they'd probably just give them the donated Pokemon anyway.)
Then onto the Player Portal, it kind of does sound like it is P2W. So you have access to your own personal portal..I mean that's a clear cut advantage over everyone else isn't it? Can you change the teleport location at any time? Is it Vanilla? Does anyone else have access to teleports? Hmm...regardless of whether or not I have answers to those questions it still sounds like it'd be P2W.
Particle effects...doesn't sound like an advantage but isn't it selling vanilla MineCraft effects? Might be infringement.
