This is the "What is URPG?" edition done by me. If you are too lazy to read the Rules to know what the URPG is, and want a quick hint before thinking of joining it and becoming part of the URPG comunity, and need some little knowledge about it before reading the entire Rules system here is my short brief of what the URPG really about. But first, we must know a little about its past so first, I'll take a quote out of the Rules thread and put it here to know where did the URPG come from.

This group started in the January 11th, 1999, as a Yahoo Club under the name The Ultimate Pokémon RPG. Then all clubs were transferred to the Yahoo Groups. With internal leadership problems, the group was deleted but all was not lost. A new group and title was born as backup- The Ultra Pokémon RPG. (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/thepokemonultrarpg/)
People were not happy with the Yahoo Groups because of the advertisements, the layout and the inactivity (when the first group was deleted we lost many members), and thus this RPG was moved to the PE2K Forums in February 2003 where we have stayed ever since.

And now to my version of "What is URPG?" The question every newbie ask:
Its good you've asked, the URPG which is a short for Ultra/Ultimate Role Playing Game is a Pokemon RPG started as a Yahoo Group where you get your starter and 3000$ to start you journey with in the Starter Requests Thread (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=64) (You better read the first post of the thread to know which Pokemon you aren't allowed to start with). After being approved you may post your stats in the Trainer Stats Thread (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10) where you can always update it if you got any new Pokemon, got a money raise or had some changes like new TMs/HMs or new battles for the record. And of course, like any other game it should have facilities like Pokemart (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=63) where you can buy Items, TMs/HMs and even some Pokemon there (Make sure to battle and get money to be able to buy stuff). There is also a Trading Center (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=65) where you get to trade your Pokemon with other trainers to raise the bond between trainers and to have differant varaity of Pokemon. And the newest of all facilities is the Daycare Center (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5735) which actually needs lotta money man...but still fun. Of course there is an Auction Room (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=171) in the URPG for some random non-Pokemart Pokemon, and a Lottery (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6577) which is also a new thing in the URPG and seems to be fun too. And of course there is this URPG Related Chat thread where you can always talk about URPG and ask questions, give comments and suggestions to improve this place and make it better for all of us to "live" in. And for more information and for rules you better check the "READ FIRST-Rules (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=61)" thread which will give you detailed information about URPG more than I and will give ya rules to follow...I hope you join and enjoy uour self here anyway and I also hope this helped my friend! ^^ (NOTE: The Rules thread is a MUST read, so please read it before deciding to join to know as much as possible about URPG before doing mistakes and such) Good Luck...
