URPG Game Board

Welcome to URPG's first ever game board. Now leave. I'm not kidding... Anyway, this should be pretty fun and last a long time. I'll try to make this a recurring event. I'm not good with big fancy intros, so I'll just get to the rules:

Basic Rules http://veekun.com/dex/media/pokemon/icons/6.png

It takes 200 steps to reach the end.
Every player starts off at "Step 1". The first three participants to reach "Step 201" will be declared winners. These participants will be awarded accordingly.
This thread is only used for sign-ups. Any questions should be addressed in the "URPG Game Board: Discussion (http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/f395/urpg-game-board-discussion-125058/#post3718971)" thread once created.
All battles relating to this event MUST be logged in your own logs, then a link must be posted in the "URPG Game Board: Logs" thread once created. Be sure to post it as "[Trainer 1] beat [Trainer 2]" and present the link to the log.
Must have at least six Pokemon to participate.
This event will be heavily supervised. Any signs of cheating will be caught and not be tolerated.

In-Depth Rules http://veekun.com/dex/media/pokemon/icons/9.png

Progressing in the game requires obtaining steps. These steps are obtained depending on the battle. If you win in these battles, you advance 'x' amount of steps:

Regular battles: 1 step
Tournament battles: 2 steps
Gym Leader battles: 3 steps
Orange Island battles: 5 steps
Legend Defender battles: 6 steps
E4 member battles: 7 steps
Champion battle: 15 steps
As with progressing, losing spots can occur. If you lose in a battle, regardless of the type of battle, you move backwards one step.
Special Spots: These spots are located on the board:
Quicksand: Players can't advance if stepped on for a full 24 hours.
Double Prize: Movement is doubled for only the next battle if stepped on, whether it's a win or loss.
Double Trouble: Find a partner to work with and have a double battle against another team. Winning grants you 10 steps. Only Regular Battles apply.

Battling Rules http://veekun.com/dex/media/pokemon/icons/3.png

DP / Revo / BW Revo
Helds: On (default, can be off if both battlers agree)
No Weather
Normal Terrain
Clauses On: Sleep, Evasion, OHKO, Freeze, Species

These ONLY apply to Regular Battles. Gyms, Elite 4, and Champion follows their own rules. But it's important to know that regardless of battle type, no battle can be lower than a 4v4.

You CANNOT avoid challenges without having a perfectly acceptable excuse. If you are caught doing this, the challenging player may send me a PM regarding the situation and it will be handled from there.

Extra Rules/Info http://veekun.com/dex/media/pokemon/icons/25.png

Achievements: These can be achieved through unlocking. You can only win each one once. Here are the following achievements and how they can be won:

Addiction - Complete 10+ unique battles in 24 hours, regardless of win or loss.

Biased! - If you use a team of only one type (monotype, dual-types are allowed) and win, you get this achievement. Exclusive only to Regular Battles.

Brutality - Winning a battle without losing a single Pokemon.

Cheaters Never Win - Haxxing a Pokemon purposely (Attract, Confuse Ray and Thunder Wave only) and losing.

Conqueror! - Winning every type of battle at least once excluding Champion Battle.

Overkill! - Bringing an opponent's Pokemon's HP to -100% or less from 50% or higher.

Stormy Nights - Using every weather (Rain, Sun, Hail, Sand) once in a battle and winning.

The Classics - Playing a match under Gameboy Clause and winning.

There's No "I" in Team! - Participating and winning in a tag team (double) battle with a partner.

Weak Technician - Winning a battle with a move with less than (not including) 40 BP as the last move of the battle.

Weapon of Choice - Winning a battle with all Pokemon holding either Choice Band, Choice Scarf, or Choice Specs.
Trick: Challenging a Gym (Orange Islands excluded) and winning with a team that is weak to the type, you get double the steps. Example: Flying team in Electric-type Gym. Important to note that Pokemon that are dual-type and contain a type that resists the gym cancels out this trick, such as Gliscor in Electric-type Gym.
