Trading Section
By MaverickKaiser

Eraizaa Walrein, Froslass, Abomasnow
All of these are EM’d a bit and aside from Hidden Powers they are pretty nice. He wants offers so offer away.

Smores: Tropius and Audino
Both have very small EM count but Tropius and Audino are hard to come by. First Audino in the URPG as well. He’s looking for a Scyther and you might want to contact him on PE2K from now on.

BumbleBee is looking for a Skarmory.


Ash K has a Machamp with some Ems up for trade.


Comics

Each week, besides the submissions from our employees for the Comics section of the URPG Times, we also welcome submissions from the community! Remember, qw pay $1,500 for each submission usually. The amount paid might be adjusted accordingly based on your comic and permanent employees will be paid slightly higher. You don't have to be a professional as well; the only criteria is for it to be funny! PM comic submissions to Alaskapigeon or Gmandiddy

Unfortuantly, we have no comics to present :(
