To commemorate the new generation that has been integrated into URPG, we’re holding a tournament! If you missed the free B/W Pokémon Special Drawing, fret not! This is your chance to earn yourself a B/W Pokemon, and potentially even better prizes if you manage to win the tournament!
 
However, you have to be a member of the URPG (Pokémon Ultra RPG) to sign up. This is a multi-faceted game put together for your pleasure. You start as a Trainer catching Pokémon and battle your way to become the champion. There are many sections (eg. Battles, Stories, Roleplaying, etc.) for you to participate and earn more money or capture Pokémon.
 
Now with the short introduction done, let me give you a quick breakdown on how the tournament works.
 
Rules:

  • You get to pick 6 Non-Legendary Pokemon released in Gen V to use
  • These Pokemon have all available TM/HM/BM/MT/SMs, and all DW abilities.
  • You may pick 6 different items to use throughout the tourney, but once you use an item on a Pokemon, you aren’t stuck using that item on that Pokemon for the whole tourney
  • When signing up, be sure to note what Hidden Power you want on each Pokemon
  • These 6 Pokemon are the only ones you may use for the entire tourney, so choose wisely!
  • There is no limit to how many people can join
  • You have one week to sign up (Read More…)

Dated back as far as 2004, the URPG Times had a humble beginning by its founder, [Fair] of PE2K. Although it started out solely for the URPG alone, Fair’s articles, along with those of other dedicated members, amassed popularity and fame over time, and thus his work evolved from a measly URPG oriented Newspaper to a forum wide Newsletter, “The PE2K Times”.

Of course he was able to handle different kinds of new readers, in his own unique ways and boy, did he have a sense of humor! However, as time passed by, the PE2K Times died one eventual day.
 
Regardless, I bring you the second issue of our URPG Times. Do check it out, whether you’re simply reading news, trying to join the URPG and thus understand more about it, or perhaps you’re a URPGer yourself! For the next week’s issue of URPG Times, it might happen. Or it might not. SPONTANEOUS IS THE WAY TO GO IF YOU WANT CREATIVITY, I WOULD SAY! (Read More…)

What’s that you are wearing, Cubone? It’s lovely. So in style. Hmm? Ohhhh…it’s the skull of your deceased mother. Gotcha. Oh you, Snubbull? You and your harem look wonderful today.

Keep reading and I’ll blow your mind. Or at least make it twitch.

#10: Snubbull
Snubbull

It has an active, playful nature. Many women like to frolic with it because of its affectionate nature. (Soul Silver)

 

Perhaps it is just me. When I hear “women” and “frolic” in the same sentence, I don’t think of Snubbull. Everyone knows though, cute little animal-like things got game.

#9: Haunter
Haunter

By licking, it saps the victim’s life. It causes shaking that won’t stop until the victim’s demise. (Yellow & Silver; bolding by Dragoness)

 

So, it spreads its saliva all over you like a carefree bulldog. As if that weren’t enough, it then causes you to die by violent convulsions. But otherwise, it’s a wonderful pet.

A General Introduction to the Pokemon Ultra RPG

This is an article written for the URPG section, a section exclusive to the PokemonElite2000 and Bulbagarden forums.

The URPG revolves mainly around battles. Unlike online simulators, URPG uses humans to referee matches. All of the URPG’s referees are professionally trained and tested. Also, unlike the games, you are not limited to only four moves; you can use any move as long as you purchased it. Check us out at either Pe2k or BMGf now!

Introduction

The first thing that you might ask when you see Kangaskhan: Why Kangaskhan? This Pokémon is easily outclassed by Miltank if you’re looking for a Normal-type to use, who possesses similar stats, but has lower Attack and Special Defense in exchange for higher Defense and Speed. When using Kangaskhan, it is important to play with adequate prediction. Otherwise, you will find yourself fainting to Fighting-type moves.

To be blunt, Kangaskhan is a novelty Pokémon. It rarely works as anything but a gimmick. With lead Infernapes almost everywhere, it becomes even harder for Kangaskhan to survive—it is best played as a lead, and Infernape takes it down too easily.

Below are several statements made by PE2K Staff regarding the Fifth Generation of Pokemon. We hope you’ll enjoy them.

 

Lord Celebi (@RaidonMakoto):

The Pokemon look really weird; there’s no denying that. They seem to have run out of animals to use and are just using… things (if even). I mean, we now have an Ice Cream Pokemon and a Chandelier Pokemon. But there are MANY interesting typings and a lot of new Pokemon for less commonly used types. Lots of Ghosts, Grasses, Bugs, and Steels. In particular, I’m looking forward to adding Iwaparesu (the sandstone crab) to my URPG Gym (Pewter City) in place of Armaldo, just because Armaldo kind of sucks. I’m also hoping to add Abagoora and Aakeosu (the two fossil Pokemon) if their movesets are good.

 

HKim (@HKimF):

There’s clearly a movement in Nintendo to introduce Pokemon to a new generation of players. Simply put, they want to create a game that anyone can pick up and play, even if they’ve never heard of Pokemon before. With completely new creatures, everyone is more or less at the same level of experience when they start. I’m not entirely sure if this tactic will be effective given the fact that most of their target demographic (children, teenagers, and young adults) are already aware of Pokemon. Either way, Black and White will surely turn a profit given the widespread fandom across the world. Pokemon has always been a top selling franchise for Nintendo.

 

Mikey (@MikeyDPirate):

I just be blunt. Most of these new pokemon look strange and ugly. I didn’t have too much of a problem with some of the designs of 4th Generation even if a lot of people did but this time I have to say they are surely a few ugly ones here in the bunch. Though I am hoping that this is because all we been getting are screenshots of them via DS screen. Still there are some nice ones in the bunch. The idea of more fire pokemon seem cool and I can’t wait to play with some of the new typings and abilities that this group has. It should make things interesting especially since they (Pokemon Company) are forcing us to use these new guys from the get-go. Things surely will be interesting and I hope that I can enjoy this new set of pokemon.

 

Neo Pikachu (@NeoPikachu82):

With regards to Gen 5, right now we’re in that “Wow, these are so different from the already existing Pokémon! I don’t like them!” stage and shortly after that, we’ll be in that “Oh yeah, I recognize that Pokémon! Its name is so-and-so and it can use X, Y, and Z attack” stage. This happened with Diamond and Pearl, and its happening all over again. Sure, some Pokémon may look strange and foreign in the beginning, but it time, we’ll get used to them and recognize them. In a way, I feel Pokémon Black and White break a lot of traditions, but keep some of the familiar feeling. In essence, the Pokémon mainstream series of games isn’t radically changing, but its becoming more dynamic and more adaptive to hardware innovations and what the fans are eager to see. Think back to the days of Red and Blue and look at how many things and changes have been implemented with each successive generation. Think back to the days when the Pokémon sprites weren’t even in color yet, and now they’re fully animated! In all, I’m looking forward to seeing what they do with it, and in the many future games to come.

 

Charbok:

Honestly, my original impressions of the entire generation thus far were a little less than enthused. I had seen the starters and random tidbits here and there, and I was very underwhelmed. Everything looked a little generic, and many of the pokémon succeeding in being (rather obvious) re-skins of ones from past generations. However, I gave a look to the entire leaked list of them today, and I was a little impressed with some of what I saw. Sure, about 40% looked rather uninspired, but overall I’d say I’m fairly surprised at how many I found myself saying “Hey, that’s kinda cool.” to. Of course, there’s that one that looks like an ice cream cone. That one’s rather… dumb. Ah well! All in all, I’d say I’m looking forward to the game now!

I hate Monday’s. Most people do. So sometimes we just need a few laughs to get the week started.

Pokemon Comics
Read Pebble Version. I think Home Depot sells narrower ones.

Legendaries to the rescue in A Pokémon Comic With A Long Title!. I prefer Lugia though.

Would Sonic, who is a hedgehog, be considered a Pokémon? Find out in Pokemon Edge!

Would you trust Mario and Luigi with your life? I would in Pokemon Shroom Version.

Lesson 1: Pikachu’s need to breathe. Read the latest Pokemon Yellow Comics.

Don’t be confused! Even though the comic says March 30th, it’s really been updated recently! The artist has fallen a little behind and has dated his comics on the date they were supposed to be released. I commend him for his effort. Read Pokémon-X!

PE2K Forum
I would be doing the PE2K community a disservice if I did not mention the talented artists and writers that grace us with their work. If I have missed you, I apologize and feel free to send me a PM or message about your comic! I’ll be glad to refer our readers to you. After all, we all could use a laugh. As a note, I won’t link comics that are inappropriate, unrelated to Pokemon, or haven’t been updated since the most recent Monday Laughs Article.

Recently we’ve received a ton of entries for the URPG Comic Competition 2009. It’s a whole bunch of good ole’ poking fun at the URPG gang. My favorites are those that refer to a handsome member named HKim.

Journalists. Sheesh. They hassle you until you spill every little bean. Good thing we have the Secret Service. Keep protecting the President! Go USA! Oh, and read Teachy TV.

Our talented community leader and moderator, Anastasia-R, produces the fascinating comic Team Diamond & Pearl. The latest issue deals with the intricacies of time. It’s time to go back… to the future!
