No, you're only allowed to use a Pokemon's sig move in battles it enters after it's approved.

Yes, the move automatically carries over.

Is it possible to have a hailstorm inside a building? Because I don't think it should be. I want to make sure before I go and take something away that's already there. :I

I certainly wouldn't ref it as such. The same with any weather system. Yes, it would be hailing outside, but unless the roof blows off, it shouldn't have any effect inside.

Thanks Elbub! I shall go remove the weather with confidence! xD

But now I have a new question, that comes in two parts:
A) Does anyone remember roleplay battles?
B) What happened to them?

I do indeed remember. And I believe Mitsuzo-kun was the driving force behind them. They were a good idea, and I'm sure I still have the files on them somewhere.

What happened to them is that ASB changed, massively. For the better, I believe, but somethings did get lost. Like Roleplaying Battles. If there is any real interest in getting them back, I'll see what I can do about it.

I think the old ASB has like.... 2 RP battles that actually went anywhere, so I totally ignored them when I redid ASB. If there's enough clamor for them, I'd be happy to help Elbub bring them back, but you're first person to ask so far.

There only four because only four people applied (or rather, were approved). You are still welcome to apply for a Gym of your own, but you'll need to have an impressive win record to be approved.

hurr, i couldn't find the answer in the stickies, and if it's there, my bad.
But, Pokemon can use any move that they're capable of learning right. and do they start off with a certain set of moves when they're first obtained. i.e. A starter Magikarp with Tackle and tail whip
also, do they have a limit fo four moves they can use in battle, or is their no limit?

sorry for the n00b questions. :0

No limit and any possible move that they can learn is fair game, no matter how old they are.

As soon as you go onto the ASB forums, there are the announcements above all the threads, including the one relating to this.

If you have a suggestion for something that you and others will pay more attention to, then I suggest this (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=111799) thread. I know in the past we used to have an Announcement thread, but I, and clearly others, thought it was obsolete considering we can post actual announcements.

The thing about multi-battles is that they tend to take a disproportionate amount of time to ref. That's why refs get paid more for them. You're more than welcome to do them, just remember that they're given seriously low reffing priority.

Ok, I kind of wish I didn't have to post this in the open in case my opponent sees this but if you are suffering from taunt, can you still use commands like dodge, jump, or dive into the water or hide underground or chill? if not, could you use an attack not to hit the opponent but to attempt a way to protect yourself? like use extremespeed to hide behind a rock? the move deals damage but the compendium says nothing about the move having to hit or be used on the opponent.

Great question! I'd say that you could use that 'Dodge with Extremespeed' idea without problem. As for 'Dodge', 'Hide', and such it pretty much depends on the Refs ruling. And I believe we've already established that you cannot Chill while under the effects of Taunt.

If you ever have a question that you don't want your opponent (or someone else, for that matter) to see you can always PM/VM/IM myself, or another Official. :)

What she said. Verbatim. Although if you think about it the whole point of Taunt is that your opponent only focuses on offense. If I were a ref, I'd rule that way.

eishiba
08-30-2011, 06:41 AM
oh i thought maybe i could use offense moves to help me. it never said you had to attack the opponent, just that offensive moves are the only moves that will succeed.

and just thought of a suggestion that perhaps rather than person 1 selecting his pokemon and person 2 choosing the perfect counter, that(somehow) both select what they want without knowing what the other one is. Just seems like person 2 gets such an advantage cause he gets to select what he wants as a counter and person 1 can't change his choice. even in the game the first two pokemon are sent out at the same time.

1. Someone would probably switch out or you could use the move transform till you run out of energy. Kind of like a Metapod vs. Metapod battle. xD Most likely however this will not happen.

2. Currently this (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=115731) is the only way to earn money aside from battles, reffing, contests (when they get started), and businesses.
However if you have a suggestion we could use it. :/

Sketch's effect as listed in the Compendium:

User: If target's last action was an attack listed in Compendium, user permaently gains the move as a Tutored Move, effective immediately.

So basically, Smeargle gets ten shots of Sketch. Every time it's used the Sketched move gets registered.

Pretty much only place you can bid is either the Auction tent or of course, during Events. But yeah, if you want to buy a Mon from UPD, you can choose from those available in the 2nd post. Basically the dealer raises the price (about a dollar or two) of the mon they buy from the player before selling them to others.

During the next action, if the target uses a Snatchable move (veekun.com/dex/moves/search?flag_snatch=yes), user steals the move for itself. Priority level 4.

From the compendium definition. The key word being steal. I would say that the snatch-user use the snatched move and get the stat-boost, while the opponent don't use the move at all.
However it is not clearly stated, so you should send paperfairy a message about it.

Thanks.

I was going to ref one round but im thinking its supposed to be judged by the ref but person 1 is using hypnosis and person two told his pokemon to "close his eyes"

Is this where, I, the ref decide how to do this or is there a certain way we do this?

Up to you, but thanks for asking.


Oh and I posted in the gym leader application thread.

We know.


1) If a player is about to sell a mon to another player, where to post it? Where to do the trading (money for mon)?

No way to do that right now...

2) If two players are agreed to bet something in a battle (like, the winner get $10, excluding the battle payment), is it permitted?

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=111968 only in there.

3) How is the quiz of the event that will be held next week work? Is it like the host giving question, and the person who answer the question first and correct gets a score?

Tsuna is correct. And there's not much we can do about laggy connections, is there~?

4) Is there going to be another give away for the event next week? It's too useless for people who spend his time in the event but not getting/winning anything.

The giveaway is only for those who didn't participate in the last giveaway.The whole point for having two events is in case somebody can't go to one of them. While its great if you can attend both, its not fair to a lot of people who can't, and you got 2 mons as a result. That's also why the events are at radically different times.

2. Is there a limit of clones to be on the field in a time?
3. Can a clone (from Double Team) perform an attack? Like, the clone uses Flamewheel, and the real Mon uses Thunderbolt to the clone to make it a combo attack of an electric fire wheel?

1 + 2) STRAIGHT FROM COMPENDIUM: User: Creates illusionistic copies of self. When user is actioned, roll from 1-X. If 1, user is hit and all clones disappear. Otherwise, clone is hit and disappears. Number of clones = X = User's Speed / 36. Number of clones cannot exceed 4.

3) They're copies - they're incapable of dealing actual damage. As for commanding them, I was under the impression that they worked like mirror images, so they mimic whatever you do.

In a double, triple,or rotation battle, if you manage to win when you when the opposing team had more Pokémon than you, you receive an extra $10.
When you lose a battle, you will receive $5. If you used any Shiny Pokémon during battle, you receive an extra $2.

1- Well, if they reset it to become a Ref/Ranger again, then I'd assume they wanted to retake the exam... If they did it just for lulz, then I'd still say they should take the test again, but it'd be optional. :I Dunno, never really thought about why someone would reset their account...

2- Nothing major. Mods have more powers (we can give Infractions, etc) then Officials and have more say when things come down to majority vote. When an Official has an idea, they have to make sure a Mod approves it, but Mods can do whatever they want. [;

ASB Officials work to keep ASB running. They run any and all official ASB threads. They are also Referees and Rangers.
ASB Moderators work to improve ASB by making major changes. Moderators schedule events, add new features, and can administer punishments when required to. They are also Referees and Rangers.

Because in both the anime and games it's random. :/ The gender and Ability are out of your control (unless you save the game, hatch it, then turn your game off and repeat until you get a combination that you like), and in the anime, people never know what Pokemon is in the egg until it hatches.

I've a question relating to the Cover action in battles. Can Protect/Detect be used to Cover an ally? If so, will the BP difference matter since Protect/Detect has none? Similarly can defensive moves ie Defense Curl, Iron Defense, Cotton Guard etc be used as a Cover too?

I know I'm not a mod etc but I'll try to answer this.

I think detect/protect could, but the others would depend on how the reff did it. But of cource, I may be wrong.

"Cover" specifically deals with using an attacking move to block another attacking move. Paperfairy is right in saying you couldn't use a defensive move to Cover, BUT, that's not to say you couldn't use them creatively for that same purpose.

It does depend on the ref as well, whether he lets you do that.

Exempt from their gym.

You can hit Ghost type Pokemon with Normal and fighting type attacks in the ASB unless the ghost type uses this move:

Phase Shift
BP: 0
Energy Mod: 6
Priority: 0
Category: Status
Type: Ghost
Target: User

Changes a this Pokémon's state to ethereal. When ethereal, this Pokémon cannot be hit with physical actions, nor can they use physical actions in this form. Any attempts to damage an ethereal Pokémon with a physical action will simply pass through them, with an energy reduction - the same applies for an ethereal Pokémon using a physical action. For every action this Pokémon is ethereal (regardless of whose action), they lose 1 Energy. If this Pokémon is targeted by Foresight and/or Odor Sleuth, this Pokémon is no longer ethereal. If this Pokémon uses Phase Shift after it has been used, then this Pokémon is no longer ethereal. Banette, Chandelure, Cofagrigus, Drifblim, Drifloon, Dusclops,Dusknoir, Duskull,Frillish, Froslass, Gastly, Gengar, Giratina, Golett, Golurk, Haunter, Jellicent, Lampent, Litwick, Misdreavus, Mismagius, Rotom, Sableye, Shedinja, Shuppet, Spiritomb, and Yamask can all use Phase Shift. When used by a Pokémon that is not one of the above, the action fails with an energy reduction.

Pokemon with the ability Scrappy can by pass the effects of this move.

For Belly Drum in the compendium, it says ATK +3. I assume this isn't a typo. But if it is just 3, might I at least recommend cutting down the HP loss, because Swords Dance does +2 with no HP loss, making Belly Drum all but obsolete. And I'm rather fond of Belly Drum :)

The Compendium says Return and Frustration's BPs are 102, I think it's a little strange though,as majority of BPs ends in 0 or 5.
Just want to make sure ...

Digital
10-22-2011, 02:27 PM
Because there is no such thing as Happiness, in Return, we say that happiness is maximum.

So using this; Base Power = Happiness / 2.5

Base Power = 255 / 2.5 (255 is the maximum for Happiness)
Base Power = 102

This is also the same for Frustration, however you take Happiness as 0.

Hope that answered your question.

I was comparing stats using the Compendium trying to find a decent grass type(which I still can't make up my mind.) I was comparing Venusaur to Meganium and the stats don't match. In the veekun, almost every stat is the same, except for their defense and sp attack. Venusaur's defense and sp attack is in order: 83 and 100. Meganium is the exact opposite of 100 and 83. Now in the Compendium if using the order atk def sp atk sp def, their numbers are as follows.
Venusaur 6 7 7 7
Meganium 6 7 6 7

Now unless there was a different range of numbers used in each stat, I'd say Venusaur's defense stat should be a 6 because Meganium sp attack is a 6 since both stats are at 83.

Whenever your Pokemon evolves, but it's still in a battle, you can register it as evolved, use its evolved form in new battles, etc. However, if that Pokemon is in a battle while it is evolved, it remains unevolved in that battle until the battle ends.
