Hello all!
Welcome to the new Announcements thread!
The boldness of a new post brought you here didn't it. /It's okay if you came just to see me. ;)/
Anyway, this was suggested by some members of the ASB. So, thank you.

If you have a question over an activity, the appropriate place to ask them would be in this thread (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=110494).
Second, always remember to check here if it has a new post, because that means something exciting is happening. You should just subscribe (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/subscription.php?do=addsubscription&t=115760) to the thread.
And that would be all~

This event has already occured. Sorry!


It's September!
We are glad to inform you that there will be many exciting things happening this month.

We are having several activities this month.

We will be having two giveaways~
These will be taking place during the live events listed below.
All you have to do is show up to win.
HOWEVER! Keep in mind that you can only win ONE of the TWO giveaways. So choose wisely. o.o

Live Events
We will be having two different live events, we hope are exciting.
We are no longer using AIM but will be using IRC (http://mibbit.com/?channel=%23pe2kasb&server=irc.systemnet.info).
This will make it easy for us to chat, as you just click and pick a name.

Live Auction
The first live event we will have will be a live auction.
It is pretty much self explanatory. You bid for pokemon that are put up for auction.
But with a theme of "ASB Moderator's favorite ASB legal Pokémon."
It will most likely be some interesting picks.
This event will take place September 10th, 8pm, EST (GMT -4) and be hosted by Dino.

Our second live event will be a quiz.
Questions will be asked by an ASB staff person, and you have to answer it. The quickest will get a point.
The points are tallied, and can be used to get prizes at the end.
This event will take place September 24th, 8am, EST (GMT -4) and be hosted by 3m0d0ll.

Forum Event
Aside from the two live events there will also be a forum event.
This event will be a interesting writing contest. It should be up soon so look out for it. (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showpost.php?p=3338910&postcount=3)

Sadly that is the end. But we hope you enjoy the exciting events we have planned and anticipate exciting ones in the near future.

This event has already occured. Sorry!


You slowly reach into your backpack pocket and pull out your pokedex. A large notification sits on the screen, informing you that you have gotten a message. It had been quite a while since you had heard from your professor. Opening the message you quickly begin to read it.

Dear Young Trainer,

We are the PPRC (Pokemon Professor Research Community). As you most likely know, a Pokemon Professor is one who studies Pokemon and their behavior. The world of pokemon is vast, and it is hard for us to even find pokemon, so this is where you come. The PPRC is a community in which the research of professors is shared. We have found, that by adding trainers into the community we receive much more information about pokemon, some of which we don’t know. So we ask every once and a while, for trainers, like you, to send in information on a pokemon of yours or one you met on your travels. Every acceptable entry receives a prize; the top entries also receive more elaborate prizes. So, hopefully you are convinced to do this easy task for us. All we ask is that you write a field guide or field journal on a pokemon you have, or one you met on your journey. Please include as much information as possible. Thank you.


To write a field guide or journal about a pokemon. A field guide would be a list of facts, such as height, weight, male/female differences, group size, food, and behaviors. A field journal is the same thing, only not listed as facts, but wrote out like a story of how you found the facts.

The writings are graded on Originality and Creativeness, Realism, Spelling and Grammar, and Writing.

Originality and Creativeness (20 Points) – Be original and creative. You are not limited to just what the game/anime pokedex says. You can alter it, come up with completely new stuff, or even prove the pokedex wrong. This is what you’ve discovered, not what the pokedex says is right.
Realism (20 Points) – Okay, pretend you’re actually in a world where pokemon exist. Can that really happen, or is that just anime physics.
Spelling and Grammar (20 Points) – Self-Explanatory.
Writing (20 Points) – This should be an easy. Do we understand what your writing? Are we intrigued? Does everything agree? That kind of stuff.

Starts 9/3/11 – Ends 9/24/11 Midnight EST

The Entries should be pmed to Dino. From that point he can grade them, send it to someone else to help grade, and ect. After the due date, the writings will be posted with their grades, and prizes will be given out.

YES! :'D
Everyone who participates will get $5 if their entries scores over a 50.
1st Place - $15, Randomly Generated Stage 1, 20% Off Coupon (Good for anything downtown.)
2nd Place - $10, Randomly Generated Basic, $10 Off Coupon (Good for anything downtown.)
3rd Place - $5, Baby Pokemon, Free Berry from The Item Shop

In regards to recent events, trading is not a requirement for evolution, with the exception of Karrablast and Shelmet.

Pokémon that evolve via Trading in the video games with the use of the hold item only require the purchase of that item in the Evolution Dojo. Trading is not an option.

Kadabra, Graveler, Machoke, Haunter, Boldore and Gurrdurr only require the $15 evolution charge in order to evolve. Players have the option to forego the $15 fee, and trading with another user in order to evolve.

ASB Battler’s League Table is now open! Check to see if you've won any prizes, and check back to see if you win in the future!


09-28-2011, 01:18 PM
Hello Trainers! Can you believe it's already Autumn? Well, as usual, we're all working in hard in the back room to ensure that ASB is fun and stays that way! We've got an update for you all, so pay attention. All updates go into effect immediately:

1) Double, Triple, Rotation and Multi Battles are now official battle formats! As a result, "How to Battle (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=116014)" has been re-written for your viewing pleasure. Everybody should read it!

2) The Safari Zone (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=100)... blew up. I blew it up, actually. It has been completely rewritten from top to bottom, so make sure you read those rules before applying for another Adventure! Changes have been made in order to make the Safari Zone a little fairer, and a little more exciting.

3) Some attacks and abilities have been balanced in order for a fairer game for all.

When this Pokémon leaves the PokéBall: if opponent's DEF > opponent's SPDEF, then this Pokémon +1 ATK. Otherwise, +1 SPATK.

If this Pokémon is inflicted with a status ailment,this Pokémon +1 ATK. If this Pokémon is BRN, this Pokémon does not recieve a reduction in the ATK stat.

When this Pokémon's HP is 50 or less, ATK and SPATK are both multiplied by .5.

Flower Gift
If the weather is sunny, this Pokémon's allies +1 ATK and +1 SPDEF.

If this Pokémon moves directly after the target does, damage dealt by this Pokémon's action is multiplied by 1.3.

When this Pokémon makes contact with another Pokémon, roll 1-10. If 1, the other Pokémon will flinch next action.

Circle Throw and Dragon Tail
Target is sent back to party and replaced with another Pokémon from party. Fails if: no other Pokémon in party, target has Suction Cups, a Substitute in play, or target has used Ingrain.

Roar and Whirlwind
Target is sent back to party and replaced with another Pokémon from party. Fails if: no other Pokémon in party, target has Suction Cups, or target has used Ingrain.

Final Gambit
Target: Dealt X - Y damage. User: -X HP. X is the amount of HP User has +1. Y is the amount of Energy currently possessed by the target.

Super Fang
BP = target's current HP

Multi-Hit Attacks
Now all have an Energy Modifier of 3.

4) We've now developed a way for you to earn some money and prizes - introducing ASB Achievements (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?p=3349758) and Bring a Friend Incentives!

Bring a Friend Incentives
After a new member finishes a battle (and does not lose by DQ), he or she is entitled to one free Pokémon of EXP level 4 or less. The individual who referred this new player is also entitled to the same benefit. To claim this, the new member must post the following in the Registration Thread (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=111369):

3m0d0ll referred me to the ASB. My first completed battle is here: http://www.google.com

Afterwards, both Pokémon choose their Pokémon and register it.

5) There's a new Referee Test (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=111379) and a new Ranger Test (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=111456)!

6) Rangers and Referees are also getting paid in a different way!
First, the Senior Referee position has been done away with. Payment has also been adjusted to take into account Double and Triple battles, as well as the increased workload of using Items for Rangers. Now, payment for ALL positions will be as follows:

$2 per action and $5 per week if any rounds were done at all

In addition, payroll PMs, as well as all test submissions will be sent to our new machine, J_A_M_E_S (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/member.php?u=66109). PMs will be ignored otherwise.

7) Last, but damn sure not least:

A NEW COMPENDIUM (http://j.mp/pe2kasbcalc).

I have been working on this for the better part of a year now. The old Compendium has been shut down and is now considered outdated - you'll be using this henceforth. Feel free to ask questions about it - the Referee and Ranger manual have also been changed to reflect the new calculator. Read them, as other changes have been made to them.

Finally, I'd like to use this post to award Sabiare Ryu $200 for writing the rulesets for Double, Multi, Rotation, and Triple Battles.

09-29-2011, 04:36 AM
Right on the heels of yesterday's update, the Trading Center has been transformed into the Trading Bazaar. Now, players can use the Trading Bazaar (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=111837) to transfer money, Pokémon, or even items to another player.

10-03-2011, 05:05 AM
Moonkit (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/member.php?u=50266) is the September Battle Table Leader (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showpost.php?p=3353919&postcount=3)! Everybody send your congratulations!

10-10-2011, 12:54 PM
- 10 actions completed in a week = $10 more in the pay check
- 16 actions completed in a week = $20 more in the pay check
- 22 actions completed in a week = $30 more in the pay check
- 30 actions completed in a week “The 3m0d0ll” = $50 more in the pay check
- 50 actions completed in a week "The Foxamivalth" = $70 more in the pay check

10-10-2011, 02:22 PM
In other news, Impact and Priority fields have been added to Signature Moves. All future move submissions will require both fields to be filled.

In addition, Signature Moves can now be dual-typed. Actually, i should have said this a few weeks ago, but I forgot.

Velocity's birthday is coming up! (http://timeanddate.com/counters/customcounter.html?msg=Countdown+to+Velocity%27s+b irthday&month=10&day=17&year=2011&hour=00&min=00&sec=00&p0=0) Get ready for presents (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?p=3356539)!

Ref Manual Update

The Ref Manual has been updated to include a definition for "party," as it is used in a number of move descriptions and can potentially cause confusion.

Gym Update

As of now "Wildcard" Pokemon (that is, Pokemon used by a Gym which don't fit its theme) will now be registered along with the rest of the Gym roster.

10-16-2011, 03:38 AM
2 Safari Changes:

1) When your egg hatches, you are now allowed to choose the Ability and Gender, as if it were a new Pokémon. You are not allowed to choose the Hidden Ability unless....

2) You purchase this new item:

ESDI (EggShell Dream Inducer)
Weight: 0
Cost: $2
Effect: When the user's Egg hatches, this item is automatically used. The Baby has a 20% chance of possessing a Hidden Ability.

Foxamivalth has admitted to using a second account (Face) for his personal benefit in the ASB. For his honesty, he is not being banned. However, this is a serious abuse of the system, not to mention a violation of PE2K rules, and as such, the following is now enacted:

Face is banned from the ASB, effective immediately.
Foxamivalth is stripped of his business and Gym, and will not be allowed to reapply for either until January 1st, 2012.
Foxamivalth is also banned from Achievements until January 1st, 2012.
Foxamivalth is stripped of his ref status, and will not be allowed to reapply until the next test is released.
All of Foxamivalth and Face's money and Pokemon are officially confiscated by the ASBL. Their money will be divied up between all members active in the last month (listed below), for $13 each. Their Pokemon will be put up for sale at a 25% discount as our Halloween event. Fox tricked us, so you're all getting a treat!

Please note that this, unless otherwise stated, will be the standard punishment for multi-accounting if cooperation is given. If the perpetrator is not cooperative, penalty is a permanent ban from the ASB, as well as everything being given away and sold. It is my sincere hope that this warning is not needed, and that we will never be making another post like this again.

Lord Fedora
ASB Staff

Eligible for $13:
Lord Fedora
Temporal Diamond
Saraibre Ryu
White Knight
Carfel Muffin
Mizuki Emi
Cheerful Cherubi

Total: 32
Money: $13 each

To celebrate the coming of Halloween, the Dream Hotel is having a special event for the week leading up to Halloween itself. The facility has opened up a special pair of Halls for cstomers to have their Pokemon sleep in.

The Hall of Tricks where Pokemon dream of pranks and all sorts of mischief pf all kinds, bringing trouble and mayhem to their victims and scaring the lights out of those that cross their path.

The Treat Hall where the Pokemon at rest here dream of pleasant things. Of course one of these pleasentries is candy and confections, walking around with friends and having fun all together.

From today up until the end of October 31st, Pacific [-800] time, anyone can drop in to have a chance at one of these Pokemon! All Pokemon are decided randomly, including which of the types from each hall to ensure maximum surprises. If customers weren't happy with said surprise, all Pokemon can be refunded for a Customer Credit of 30 points! This is a one time per customer event, so drop in to the Dream Hotel before time runs out!

For those who aren't feeling up for the event, or for those who have already had their go at it, the regular facilities of the Hotel will still remain open to everyone!

Due to the departure of White Knight, Sabi is left without a crucial Gym Leader she needs to operate her gym. Therefore, she's is opening applications for a Co-Leader to her Gym, of which can be located here (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=115916).

The application process is simple. PM Saraibre Ryu directly, to let her know you want to apply. After that, she'll put you on a list, looking into your battling skills to see how you battle and determine which of the applicants are best suited to fill the position of gym leader. Remember that this gym is a Multi-Battle Gym, requiring patience, a lot of cooperation and team work.

The selected ASB participant will automatically recieve all of the previous Gym Leader's Pokemon:


For more details on these Pokemon, click here (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showpost.php?p=3349486&postcount=3).

The chosen trainer will be announced here, and will immediately recieve the above Pokemon after proper registration. Best of luck to all!

A Valentine's Day Event (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?p=3372867#post3372867) is kicking off! Come quick to get a free mate-for-life for your Pokemon!

04-06-2012, 08:33 PM
So you guys, do you remember how we had that time period where almost nobody was posting? Well, I'd very much like it to be over! However, my wanting it to be over isn't really going to do much. That's where you guys, the loyal members of the Anime-Style Battling League, come in. Your task is mind-bogglingly easy: just post any ideas you have that will help us get back on our feet in this thread here (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=111799) - and I mean any; even if you think your idea sounds dumb, post it. If we're going to somehow manage to come up with a way to revive the League after this hiatus, it'll probably be you guys doing it because obviously the staff hasn't come up with anything yet - or we would have done it! And don't worry; you won't go unrewarded. If your idea is implemented, we'll pay you with shiny ASB moneys, the amount depending on the complexity and the likeliness your idea has to actually draw activity/new members. Any and all ideas are appreciated. So please, post your thoughts! The more new ideas, the closer we'll be to an active, busy League again.

Happy May Day!

We would like to take a quick moment to inform you of the exciting things we have planned for this summer ahead of us.

Yes, we are going to begin contests once again. Hooray! Contests will now be held seasonally from now on out, begging with our upcoming Summer Contest. So... now it is time to find and begin bribing the judges. Actually, you can begin practicing at the Trial Hall (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=115490). If you haven't already you also need to receive a Coordinator License (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=114819). We hope to see you there for this exciting activity. (Exciting Prizes also await the winners!)

We will also be holding a Tourney. This tourney will the first time ASB has participated in WAR. Details haven't been completely finalized however a sign-up thread will be posted on June 10. Non-ASB members will also be given a chance to participate, and hopefully will be inspired to join us here at the ASB. Of course, if the WAR isn't held this year, the tournament will still go on, and ASB members can battle for the top spots. The top spots also hold even more fabulous prizes!

VS Seeker!
There is however one thing we must do in our plan. The VS Seeker will be closed two to three weeks before the tournament. We plan to do this because it will be easier to focus our refs on the tournament, to not have a lot of other battles to do as well. After it is closed we will do our best to try and finish your battles, so you can focus and enjoy the Tournament as well.

5/1/12 - Dino, on behalf of the ASB staff

06-24-2012, 04:48 PM
Who's excited for WAR! :D I know I am. But for this door to open, others must close. Literally. All current battle threads will be closed for the duration of ASB's participation in WARXI. This is so that Refs make sure to Ref what's most important at this point in time. Sorry about this, guys, but they'll all re-open July 22nd.

On a side tangent, WAR kicks off today! Here are the current battles:

Saraibre Ryu of GUN vs. Sammy0295 of The Eggman Empire. (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?p=3398100#post3398100)

Foxamivalth of AWESOME vs. 5TailedDemonLizard of Revolution Uprising. (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?p=3398104#post3398104)

narphoenix of Revolution Uprising vs. haybalebarn of GUN. (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?p=3398108#post3398108)

gmandiddy of Park Lords vs. Velocity of Revolution Uprising. (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?p=3398111#post3398111)

Fixed the Compendium today - the sorting tables were not working due to a missing semicolon, and nobody decided to tell me that it wasn't working... I just happened to learn about it today. So that's fixed. PM me if other stuff breaks!

01-24-2013, 02:54 AM
Compendium moved to http://knsue.com/pe2kasb/v2/. Tell HKim thank you.

Hello, fellow ASBers. :D Over the past week or so, you may have seen some changes around here, but in case you're unobservant or just a damn idiot (don't worry, you can be our idiot. ♥), here's a synapses synopsis:

~ Odd Jobs (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=115731) has eliminated the deadlines on sending us your artwork. :D Create some banners for the Stickied threads around here and you may receive $10 per banner we use. We've also added some new Poll Questions, so stop by and earn a bit extra cash.

~ We're being invaded by one of the most BAMF Pokemon ever - Mewtwo! Participate in this Forum-wide event by clicking here (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=120152) and signing up for the Contest that will start on February 1st. c:

Lord Fedora's birthday is coming up... and even though he isn't active, he was a BIG help in getting ASB set up, so wish him a happy birthday (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?p=3451242)!

02-08-2013, 03:38 AM
Just a note to all the Invasion participants, if you utilized the Free Evolutions, and don't make an Appeal, your Pokemon will be reverted back to their previous forms. I'll be sending out VMs to all the people who haven't Appealed yet.

The thread will be locked tomorrow February 8th at 5 PM PST--less than 24-hours from now--so make sure you participate.

02-19-2013, 03:47 AM
Hey, everyone. :3 I got a few updates that might interest you.

1) Saraibre Ryu is now able to approve posts in the Registration Headquarters (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=111369). :D So go pester her!

2) A new Poll Question has been added to the Odd Jobs (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=115731) thread. Unlike previous questions, you will receive payment based on how accurate your hypothesis is.

3) Please congratulate 5TailedDemonLizard, Velocity, Saraibre Ryu, and Socratic Sarcasm for advancing to the Semi-Finals in the current Mewtwo Invasion Contest. =3 Read their Appeals and scores here (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=120237), and watch their current Battle Appeals here (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=120288) and here (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=120289).

Good luck to you, yours, and everything you shoplift, too.
