View Full Version : Summer Auction

The Summer Auction will be held tomorrow at 10:30 PM GMT. I will be your host and shall present to you 17 of the coolest Pokemon. There will be one of each type; of some types there may be more than one Pokemon due to dual-typing, but there will be at least one of every type. You will be allowed to buy only one Pokemon, so pick you might want to wait on the specific type of your choice, although that obviously does contain an element of risk. But Risk is fun, you should play it! ... Anyway. There will be some special twitches to some rounds. For instance, blind bidding. I might for instance only say the type(s) of the Pokemon but not the Pokemon itself and then have you guys bid on it. That also carries an element of risk, which as I said, is fun! As older members remember, the laughs you will have when Yami buys a hidden Rattata for $40k+ are awesome. There will also be other fun, such as mons carrying a TM or something. If a lot of people show up I might add more mons, but I'm probably not going to increase the 17 if we have like 25 people. You can't always get something.

Well that is already more text than I was hoping for so a quick summary:
Saturday August 11th, 10:30 PM GMT, Summer Auction.
17 Pokemon: 1 of each type (more mons if there's plenty of people).
Including specials like hidden Pokemon and TMs.
And most important: I'm in charge and you do as I say. :happy:

And a last note: no quick mass money making. Any abuse of FFA's, OHKO's (evolutionary or not) or any other way of money making will be punished.

Cacturne (dark) ----> Asila Reed $3.5k
Garchomp (dragon) ----> Eraizaa $7.6k

You big hoe D:

I had not long ago spent all my moolah on TM's and such thinking wages would be out before this. .__.

And FYI, the rat was 40K+ I still hate Magare to this day for that.

Would it be considered cheating if I posted Grader Wages now? I was supposed to do them about a week ago, but I forgot about them. =/

That's fine. There will be no reffing wages before the auction though.

Um.. No wages is unfair. The wages shouldve been out today. If not then before the auction. We work hard for our cash and when we have a chance to get good stuff with it we cant? Thats bs tbh.

Yeah. I don't mean to be the big bad complainer but, I've got $1050 and I'd really like to be able to participate in this but, with that amount of money I don't think it'll be possible. =/

Um, no, it is not unfair. Refs get huge wages, if you squander it, that's your fault. Give me a break, totally unfair to let them build up lots of money and get it right before the auction.

That's true, and I wouldn't mind not getting wages until after this IF other refs WOULD ACTUALLY REF for me so that I could earn money from battling. :|

I kinda feel like the lone ref. :s

Wages should be allowed or then like 70% of the people there will be broke. :l

LS, stop complaining. No wages. That's all. If you want money, find a ref and make him ref like hell.

Oh, wait, that's like cheating :oops:. Sorry then :P

TE, as usual, it will be held in a AIM chat, where Mike will invite everyone he'll see on

Graders can get as much as ref's if they grade enough (Meg has made over 20K in previous months), just like refs get 30K+ if they ref enough so I personally don't see how it's unfair (I hate agreeing with LS .__.)

It does seem that the majority of refs are broke, so this will be interesting.

Mitsuzo-kun

This'll be great for all of those who actually have money... o_O

I doubt I'll be able to get anything for 4.5k... Although I might have one or two battles before then.

EDIT: I also think refs get more than graders do... =3

Stop whining and being stupid. In case you had not realized, with +/- $10k you're not broke, but you have what normal members will have. If wages are paid, non-refs stand no chance.

And you know what's odd about you saying you're the lone ref? Every newest ref has said that in the past. Stop whining and look at the logs and see that people actually ref.

Wages should be allowed or then like 70% of the people there will be broke. :l

Ahum ...

Exactly. If you squander it that's your problem. And no, not 70% of the people will be broke, more like 30% (maximum, if all you fools have squandered your money). Whereas if I do pay out wages, 70% of the people (non-refs) stand no chance.

Graders can get as much as ref's if they grade enough (Meg has made over 20K in previous months), just like refs get 30K+ if they ref enough so I personally don't see how it's unfair (I hate agreeing with LS .__.)

Refs can get over $50k and I've never seen a grader get that. And yes, they can get $20k, but they don't. They don't grade enough.

Stop whining. :rolleyes:

You're right, yep. I read about this stuff in one of Mike's previous posts, but it's just the fact that you need your wage compared to others who don't have one. :3

I'd say go to the auction, see if there's anything you like, if not buy the mart mon you want. Simple. =)

Well... I bought Magcargo with no TMs or anything for $5,500. Kinda suck-ish, but you know... I then traded it for a Meganium with TMs Earthquake and Giga Drain. What a result! ^^
