  • [break]

  • due to the plot of this site, your character must be affiliated with the league or team rocket. if you are playing a civilian character or wish to focus on slice-of-life threads, choose the league!




POKEMON, TRADING, BATTLES


POKEMON, LEVELS, MOVES



  • pokemon intelligence depends on the species, but you can compare the general intelligence of pokémon to the anime's depiction, where they have distinct personalities, motivations and knowledge about the world.
  • [break]

  • there are no levels on this site.
  • [break]

  • we use gen 7 (usum) and gen 8 (swsh) movesets, abilities, etc. we do not use let's go pikachu eevee movesets or data.
  • [break]

  • pokemon can learn up to six moves from their usum or swsh learnset; you can relearn or learn new moves via the site shop. egg moves are also a shop purchase. lastly, we use both usum/swsh technical machines (TMs) and technical records (TRs).
  • [break]

  • pokemon can learn moves from their previous evolutions' learnsets even if they can not learn them in their current evolutionary stage.
  • [break]

  • if applicable, pokemon can learn their evolution moves upon evolving.
  • [break]

  • hidden abilities have to be purchased via the site shop or encountered in the wild; your starting pokemon or gacha pokemon can not start with hidden abilities.
  • [break]

  • there is a chance of pokemon being shiny, but this is rare. your starter pokemon can not be shiny.
  • [break]

  • pokemon evolutions are purchased via the site shop; evolutionary items and game mechanics such as beauty, friendship or required moves do not need to apply oocly (but you can roleplay them icly).
[break][break]


TRADING



  • you can not trade pokemon between yourself (or through another person). more information about trading can be found here.
  • [break]

  • in the case of a dropped character, staff will decide if their pokemon can be gifted or not.
[break][break][break]

  • [break]

  • z-moves can be accessed by growing a passho berry found here.
  • [break]

  • battles are FREEFORM and STATLESS. however, you may communicate with your roleplay partner if you would like to roll for status ailments or other mechanics. always collaborate and roleplay respectfully and creatively within reason.




CATCHING POKEMON / WILD THREADS


WHAT ARE WILD THREADS?


WILD THREADS are threads that are focused on the capture of pokemon. You can engage in "solo wild" threads, which involve your character only and a mod, or "duo wild" threads, which involve you and at least one other character.[break][break]


  • solo wild threads will have a maximum of three pokemon spawns and one capture.
  • [break]

  • one solo wild thread per character per week (refreshes on your timezone’s monday).
  • [break]

  • your solo wild thread will end if you capture a pokemon or encounter all three spawns.
  • [break][break][break]

  • duo wild threads can be made without limit and have limitless spawns. no total capture limit (subject to change).
  • [break]

  • duo wild threads will spawn at least two pokemon. you can only catch one pokemon per spawn.
  • [break]

  • duo wild threads are wild threads that are done with one other character or more. spawns will match the number of characters in a thread (e.g. three characters will prompt three pokemon spawns).
  • [break][break][break]

  • after you create your wild thread, post in requests for a spawn. if you desire another spawn after the encountering the previous, post in requests again.
  • [break]

  • capture attempts can fail due to one-liners, nonsensical roleplay, etc. however, you may try to capture the pokemon again when applicable.



GYMS & BADGES


ON HOENN, all characters can participate in the gym challenge. Hoenn's gym leaders are educators, aiming to teach the general populace about the basics of battling. A badge signifies the fulfillment of each gym's educational objective.[break][break]

Furthermore, view the gym board for gym challenge sign-ups or the canon list to see who owns which gym (or if a gym slot is available).[break][break]

As a note, gym leaders do not always need to lose to their challengers. If a gym leader believes their challenger has not proven themselves to earn their badge, then it may not be rewarded.[break][break][break]


  • gym battles can have at least two options for battlers to choose from: standard versus non-traditional.
  • [break]

  • gym battles must have a standard option available at least.
  • [break]

  • standard gym challenges are simple, fluffless battle threads that can range from 1v1s to 3v3s (no higher).
  • [break]

  • non-traditional gym challenges are systems, battles, or procedures the gym leader's player has set that stray away from simple battle threads. for example, requiring the challenger to perform tasks or fulfill special conditions.
  • [break]

  • the challenger will decide which option (standard vs. traditional) they would like to take.
  • [break]

  • standard gym challenges will reward 50 pokedollars and 5 infamy; however, non-traditional gym challenges will reward 125 pokedollars and 10 infamy.
  • [break]

  • gym leaders can grant their badges to characters for other in-character reasons (e.g. erika gifting ash her badge for saving her pokemon from a burning gym). however, you must consult with SHIV first.



THREAD REWARDS


WHAT DO I GET FOR ARCHIVING A COMPLETED THREAD?


COMPLETING A THREAD, can earn you pokedollars, infamy, and occasionally, special items.[break][break][break]


  • completed solo wild, duo wild and social threads net you completed thread rewards.
  • [break]

  • wild threads will reward mainly pokedollars; social, battle, mission and event threads will reward pokedollars, items, and infamy.
  • [break]

  • you must post in moderation requests in order to receive your completed thread rewards.
  • [break]

  • completed safari zone threads do not grant you completed thread rewards.
  • [break]


POKE CURRENCY


POKEDOLLARS are the main form of currency on Hoenn, used to purchase items from the site shop and more.[break][break]


  • money can not be transferred from another character to make site purchases.

[attr="class","omgen"]
[attr="class","omgentop"]INFAMY SYSTEM



[attr="class","omgenmid"]

A LIGHT PROGRESSION SYSTEM



GENERAL INFORMATION


THE INFAMY SYSTEM is a progression system on Hoenn that all characters partake in. As characters become more "infamous" to the opposite faction (Team Rocket or The League), they will be able to unlock more activities and perks on the site; however, the aforementioned activities and perks are often embellishments and nothing mandatory to partake in.[break][break]

Infamy can also be used as a plotting tool by roleplayers. You can use Infamy to help supplement roleplay (e.g. character dynamics, plot ideas). For example, a character with higher Infamy could have more influence over characters with lower Infamy in their faction. However, please note that high Infamy does not necessarily correlate with how reputable or famous a character is on the site.[break][break]

There is no current cap to Infamy. will continue to add Infamy to your characters well beyond 100 for fun.[break][break][break]

HOW CAN I GET INFAMY?


ON HOENN, you can gain Infamy in a variety of ways. As long as you participate in the site by writing, your character should be able to gain Infamy organically. You do not need to participate in site events or missions to gain Infamy (although it will be slower). A list of methods can be found below:[break][break]


  • social threads (not wilds)
  • [break]
  • mission threads
  • [break]
  • poke jobs
  • [break]
  • events
  • [break]
  • swarms (rarely)
[break][break]

WHAT CAN I GET WITH INFAMY?


AS YOU ACCRUE INFAMY, several activities and perks will unlock for you (as a player) and your character. A list of what can be unlocked can be seen below.[break][break]

10 INFAMY



  • first league faction rank up - trainer/officer/ranger
[break][break]
