Lol at above. xD

Ok also, if it's just a 1v1 battle, it means that both Trainers can't switch out to a different Pokemon, can they? If they can, wouldn't it be more one 1 Pokemon used and should not be 1v1? Just saw such a scenario of switching Pokemon in a 1v1 battle. ;__;

Well if it's 1 on 1, that may mean a singles battle.

Unless it has an amount of Pokemon specified, then I would assume it's only on Pokemon per Trainer. You would have to make sure with said battlers and the information posted in the Vs Seeker thread I would think.

*waits for other real official to prove me otherwise*

A 1v1 battle means that only one Pokemon is allowed on each person's team. So no, no switching is allowed there. What you might be thinking of is Singles, which is a different part of the ruleset and determines how many are allowed on the field at a time.

Referee pay is always posted here (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=111379).

As for when, it seems like most of the staff is busy so it depends on when someone has a free moment. We are sorry for the lagging in pay, we are trying to discuss something that could be easier.

Type advantages and disadvantages apply.

EXCEPT for Ghost types with Normal and Fighting attacks. They do take damage, and in exchange were given a new attack that makes them immune to physical moves altogether (Phase Shift)

Two things.

1. How come sometimes when you roll a critical in the compendium, it doesn't add up. I rolled a critical and the critical hit damage is 1 less than being 2X damage. For the attack, standard damage is 9 and critical is 17? Last time I checked, 9+9=18. Or can I not count? Do you go by what the compendium says? Or am I missing something that the compendium is doing?

2. You can only stat boost yourself to +6 right? Then why does the stats in the compendium go up to 15?

KantoBreeder
11-23-2011, 06:02 PM
1. I assume that that's because the result is rounded up after factoring in critical hits. So if the result damage is 8.5, then normal damage would round this up to make 9. However, if there was a critical hit then it would be doubled to 17.

2. A pokemon's stats can be raised to double their original amount. For example, a Blissey can raise its Special Defence to +15 but Magby can only raise it to +4.

Hopefully that makes sense.

The critical modifier is counted in the formula itself. In your example that 9 is actually an 8.5 rounded up.

When Ditto uses transform on an opposing pokemon, will he be treated like that pokemon and be able to use all the moves that the opposing pokemon can use?

If x=ditto and y=opposing pokemon.

x vs. y
x uses Transform
Now x=y

So you become the opposing pokemon and have its stats, moves, type, and ect.
Pretend you are now the opposing pokemon.

Since there are some Pokemon that only have access to one ability due to the second being banned for example Buneary must start with run away because klutz is banned, could it be allowed to use a different ability all together within good reason? Or possibly completely change klutz to something else since it involves the use of items?

Another question. I keep seeing other refs "claiming" and "reserving". How long do those stay in effect? I'm seeing some that are two or three weeks old.

If you want different abilities this (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=116176) is the place to go.

As for claiming. If they claim but don't post in a reasonable amount of time (3-4 days) you can take it from them.

What happens if a Pokemon is roared out mid-round?

I suppose that is all up to your judgement, because I don't know of any set rules.

I would, personally, probably pull the pokemon out, replace it with a random pokemon from their stats (if there is one) and then end the round.

Would a pokemon with less speed be able to dodge/deflect/cover against an opponent with a greater speed?

Velocity
02-03-2012, 09:57 PM
Would a pokemon with less speed be able to dodge/deflect/cover against an opponent with a greater speed?

Depends on the speed discrepancy and your judgement. For instance, an Axew is probably going to have a tough time deflecting/covering/dodging over a Ninjask, eh? However, it's not impossible and similar things have been done in the anime. I know that a cover is probably going to be successful up to about a difference of, like, 50 or so in which case I'd call it a judgement thing. Dodging, however, is really more dependent on likelihood - I.E., if a Pokemon is slower than its opponent it's more likely to dodge successfully if it has 10 less speed instead of 50 less. Savvy?

I would most likely end the round after roar myself.
Or you could pm the owner of Pokemon B and ask them to change their second attack.

I assume you're referring to my battle. Pokemon is randomly replaced with another one from the owner's "party". Doesn't get an action command unless the owner conditioned for it.

Does it seem likely or possible for smaller pokemon to use moves like tackle or take down on larger pokemon that may outweigh them by twice as much?

The Smogon ASB actually has a formula for this. I wouldn't be opposed to working one in, if there was demand for it.

See above. New Pokemon doesn't get an action.

OK, it's a 1-on-1 battle. The opponent has Double Team Clones out-3, for this instance. I use Earthquake, which hits every Pokemon in the field except for the user. In this case, would it hit all the clones and the real Pokemon, or would it only hit one target?

It hits the clones, yes. I've had the same thing come up: somebody used that Fire-type move that does splash damage to the Pokemon adjacent to the target and even though there was only one Poke on the field, I declared that the clones were hit. Stuff that affects 'everyone' affects everyone who isn't Protected or immune.

If a Status inflicting move such as Thunderwave is used on a Pokemon that it protected by Substitute, then the target will not become Paralyzed.

...OK, call me impatiant. But I'm not sure what's going on and just editing the post will probably mean nobody will notice for a while.

I've got a request for an Ability Change in the Pokemon Development Facility (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=116176), so my Froslass can be changed from Snow Cloak to Moody (That post is at the bottom). Yes, that Moody, but I've tried to give excellent reason why it won't be such a hindrence. That's not my problem, however. The issue is the thread states it takes Twelve hours to complete the procedure, and it's been well past that limit-I should be able to take it out and just leave. Considering the posts dealing with the same thing above mine, I was highly confused about whether or not someone comes to check on whether or not the Ability is WAY too powerful for the Pokemon. Do I just post in the Registration Thread with it now, or do I have to wait until someone approves the ability for me in the Shop, then get it approved again in the Registration thread?

EDIT: Nevermind. It's been resolved.

Question - Can a Pokemon use a move normally meant for another on itself or a teammate?

Like, say, a Vulpix and a Deerling. Vulpix could use Energy Ball on Deerling to power it up if it has Sap Sipper.

Or said Vulpix could use Flamethrower on itself to activate Flash Fire...

Or...Hrm, Zangoose with Toxic Boost using Toxic on itself to get that ability. You know?

Energy Ball's Impact is a Singular Target. It doesn't specify who the target is. Same with Toxic, although I wouldn't argue if a ref ruled this out - I imagine a Pokemon would immune to its own toxins.

I have a question. If a Dugtrio with the ability sandforce uses sandstorm would you have to round the damage or leave it as it is?
Sandstorm; At the end of every round, each active Pokémon, except Ground, Rock, and Steel types, loses 6 HP simultaneously. During effect, Rock-type Pokémon receive +2 SPDEF.
And
Sandforce; Damage dealt by this Pokémon's Rock, Steel, and Ground-type actions is multiplied by 1.3. It also gives the user immunity to damage from Sandstorm.

So 6*1.3 = 7.8 DAMAGE or would you round it up to 8 DAMAGE.

This is making me go crazy!!!

The only actions affected are direct attacks, such as Earthquake and Rockslide. Anyone can correct me if I'm wrong on this one.

Also, in the ASB, always round up. ^^

Always round up? If it's 3.1, you round up to 4? (Yes, I read the manual, I just like to double check). This is going to kill my math knowledge XD I was looking over Double Team and such, and I'd get numbers such as 3.15, which would round up to 3.2 for true math. Ultimately it would round down to 3. But you are suggesting we round up to 4 even though it technically shouldn't. ...Right? XD

It's not flawed, really.

In math, you're taught that if you have a number five or higher you round up.

My example, 3.15, would round to 3.2. But, if you were basing it on whole numbers only - no decimals, you'd ignore the five and look at the one. Since it's lower than five, it rounds down to 3.0, effectively 3 :) That's why I said ultimately it rounds down to 3 - I just didn't explain it too well. My bad ^^' *Not the best explainer sometimes and yes that is a new word*


But I get what you are saying. It'll kill me regardless, but I can easily round up. Just have to remember ASB is different from Calculus XD Thanks for answering my question because I like double-checking~

Verbatium for the effect of Magic Coat on the Compendium: "If user is the target of one of inflictions of status ailments of any kind, stat changes, or trapping effects by non-users, instead user uses that action against that non-user (includes Attract, Flatter, Gastro Acid, Leech Seed, Swagger, Worry Seed, and Yawn). Effect ends when user is replaced."

Henceforth, is the move Roar-which switches out the opposing Pokemon-classified as a status aliment, stat change, or a trapping effect, or would it bypass Magic Coat?

Just curious.

And I really do not consider a link to Bulbapedia and the word 'Gloating' an answer.

According to the Compendium, Magic Coat does not reflect Roar. However, Compendium was written during the fourth generation, where that was the case. In the fifth generation, Roar is now deflected by Magic Coat. In this case, Jenn is correct: I would not penalize a ref for this. However, there is a good chance I will patch Compendium in the future to fix this.

Not sure if it was asked at some point, but just a quick question about something related to Signature Moves: Is there no such thing as "Signature Attributes" here? By that, I mean something similar to a Signature Move, except instead of a move it's an ability. It could either replace a Pokemon's regular ability or exist side-by-side with the regular ability. If these don't exist, could they potentially exist in the future?

I have created something similar to these, at least based on what you describe. Basically I create a move that gives boosts or effects to what the Pokemon does. Below is an example of what I've made that has been approved.


http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/635.gif
Vio-Nai the Hydriegon [F]
Ability: Levitate
Signature Move: Triple Driver
Description:
Vio-Nai was always perceptive and skillful in finding ways to utilize her three heads. Favoring special attacks, she discovered two ways of doing this. One way was to combine all her breath attacks into one powerful stream, making attacks like Flamethrower and Dragon pulse much more powerful at the cost of a bit more energy. In single combat this worked out well, however she found another use for it in multiple opponent combat. Rather than directing all of her heads into one powerful stream, she used her heads to attack more than one opponent at once, using up a bit more energy so she wouldn’t lose too much power. Finding that hitting and wearing down multiple opponents at once brought her success in battles. However, she could only keep it up until she had so much energy left, but she found it worth the effort. Really, three heads were better than two.
Type: Dragon
Base Power: N/A
Accuracy: 100
Classification: Status
Energy Modifier: Special attack's energy modifier +3 energy when this effect is used. [Eg Dragon Pulse energy mod +3 energy]
Effects:
Converge: [Concentrated attacks]
Attack's BP increases by 50%
Accuracy of attacks lowered by 10%
Has a chance of inflicting status effect of attack onto user. Eg chance of self inflicting burn from Flamethrower.

Diverge: [Split attacks]
All Special attacks used are treated as multi targeting attacks, such Rock Slide when attacks are used under this condition.
Center position of Triple battles, can hit all three opponents. BP of attacks are reduced to 60% in this case.
Can hit up to 2 Double team clones at once. Main head watches for the real Opponent and does not attack.

Universal effects:
All special attacks use an additional 3% energy when attacks have an additional [Converge] or [Diverge] tag added to them. Tri-Attack is exception to this rule and does not apply to this effect.
Effects cease when at 20% energy. Cannot use if under 20% energy. Cannot use while Confused or Infatuated. Can't be used if Special Attack has been lowered.[/U]
Usage Gap: Every other action
Note:This isn’t as much of a move as it is an added effect. These affects apply when actions are given in the following format:
Flamethrower [Converge] or Dragon Pulse [Diverge]





I'm not ENTIRELY sure if this is more to what you're thinking of.

It's basically the same thing that I was thinking of. However, it seems like you had to forgo getting an actual Signature Move in order to get those effects; what I was thinking of allowed for both those effects AND a move at the same time, although you could only have one if you wished. From what I can tell here, you can get either a move or an attribute(like what you posted), but not both.

Sorry if what I'm saying isn't exactly clear. I'll try to clarify if you need me to, if you're confused, or I can alternatively post an example of one if need be.

We have previously considered adding them, but if we do, it most likely won't be soon, and quite restricted. Creating a move like Sabi is the only current option available.

Essentially the more evolved a pokemon is the higher its Experience is. The higher ones experience the less energy is needed to preform moves.

If you want it any more detailed then that your going to have to refer to the Referee/Ranger Manual (https://docs.google.com/document/d/12UQCRoAI1h1YRB8XT3O_QH9iLmhWiPtlV-diNKU0sjU/edit?hl=en_US). Which may be very confusing if you since your new.

A quick question because I'm feeling dumb today:

If a pokemon executes a move that hits "All Opposing Pokemon" and it is a double battle, one calculates the damage for each pokemon in the compendium as if it were for an attack that specifically targeted that pokemon, so you would get two differed hp deductions, yes?

Yep. If the move is, say, Rock Slide aimed at a Poliwrath and a Wigglytuff, you'd calculate the Health deduction from Poliwrath, and the Health reduction from Wigglytuff (which would obviously give two different percentages) and apply the damage accordingly.

I probably over complicated this answer. cx

*considering I wrote the system for Multi-battles*

Multi-Battles were written based on the format of the game, which was two on two but with four trainers, two per side. A Battle Royale wasn't originally intended for multi-battles, however I don't see how it wouldn't work. Though I'd imagine that'd be one hell of a battle. Considering you can PM anyone about a normal battle and you can do the same with Multi-Battles. I wouldn't think it's necessary to PM other people for a Royale battle, but to help be more organized, sure. If you want anyone, sure I'd post it in the VS Seeker, but I'd make it clear it was a Multi-Royale, as original Multi-Battles is like a Double Battle only with four trainers.

Well, honestly, there isn't anything exact about how you can get promoted to a SR. When the ASB Officials see that you're active and don't make errors (or very few errors), then we may decide to promote you.

SRs receive $10 for Reffing one Rounds, then an additional $5, while JRs receive $5 and $4 respectively. Sorry that I can't give you more information, but there honestly isn't much to give. cx

The only advice I can give is to double check all your Rounds and Ref a lot. ^^;

For the sake of my own curiosity...

If you own a particular buisness, can you completely change how that buisness works? My question in relating to the Hidden Power type determination buisness as that's never gotten off the ground and I'd like to revamp how determining HP types is done.

I figure you just resubmit it to the D. Den correct?

Since Shelmet and Karrablast aren't listen on the Evolution Dojo thread, are they instantaneous due to their evolution being of a trade nature?

Also Nincada evolving produces both a Ninjask and Shedinja [with the extra purchase] correct? [This is more for double checking really]

Instant ($8)
Nincada -> Shedinja


* To be purchased when evolving Nincada to Ninjask. Buy this item to claim a Shedinja along with your Ninjask. *

** You can also go to the Trading thread (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?p=3260017#post3260017) and trade Pokemon with another player to evolve these Pokemon. The only way to evolve your Karrablast is to trade for a Shelmet, and vise versa. **

Oh Odin, I don't want to even have to think about trying to sift through the Evolution Dojo without Ctrl+F. D:

Hmm, how about if you use Accelgor in the Appeal Round of the Mewtwo Invasion Contest, you can evolve it without having to trade (just link to this post in the Reg. HQ). Deal? c:

Lemme rephrase my question since I now know the problem...I guess.

I sent my Ref Test to J_A_M_E_S a few months ago. Seeing as he hasn't replied for a while, should I sent it to all of the most active Officials now?

Yes, please resend it! JAMES isn't an actual person, he's Justin's toy, and I hate having to check his inbox. So yes, forward it to me, Dino, and Velocity as soon as you're able.

That is very tempting... but I already had my appeal and battle Pokemon worked out in my head. XD I'll pass on the offer, I don't feel like I should get something like that because my Ctrl+F wasn't working. XD

I'll just have to buy a Karrablast and then someone can have a free Escalavier from me if they trade back and forth. XD

Hmm, I can't find information on this...

Does Uproar cost energy to use each time once you're stuck under its continuous effect (in a similar manner to Bullet Seed and the like, although that happens in the same action and not over a set of actions)? It has a high BP so the energy cost is high, which is why I was curious. It would make more sense for it to act like Bullet Seed just prolonged for a while, rather than acting like you used it again each time and deducting energy.

Please let me know asap please~ I'm in a battle and I'm curious to know how it'll work with Uproar.

Energy will be deducted each time uproar is used, because essentially you are attacking each time instead of a more 'rapid action' attack in one general movement. It is more like encore.

When Uproar is attacking, Energy will be deducted every action it's used. So if it costs 5% Energy each action, and lasts for four actions, it'll end up costing 20% Energy in total.

As your pokemon evolves it gains more experience.

The higher EXP your pokemon has the easier it is for them to perform moves and in turn makes them use less energy.

More simply put (TLDR)
More EXP = Less Energy Used

Also, if I remember correctly, it can also strengthen moves as EXP goes up. You can raise the EXP of a Pokemon two ways:

1) Evolve it at the Evolution Dojo

or

2) Buy a Rare Candy and use it on a Pokemon of choice.

Rare Candies cost $100 a piece, so it's not recommended, because, unless you are BlueTowel from PWN Forums, you would want to evolve a lot of your Pokemon.

Also, I've got another question.

If you took the referee-test, and sended it to Just Another Machine Emulating Stuff.
How long does it take to get a (non-)approval from him? Since I somehow heard it to be a machine. Why didn't I get a PM back?:eh:
