QUICK START GUIDE
Interested in the Wi-Fi League but feel intimidated by the seemingly masses of rules? Don't worry! The League isn't complicated. This Quick Start Guide will show you how to begin your adventure in Celestia nice and simply. If you do get confused at any point, though, feel free to read the full ruleset
or ask any of the officials through VM or PM or ask a question in the General Chat, Help and Questions thread
. We're all very friendly, I promise!
If you don't know already, the PokemonElite2000 Wi-Fi League is a Pokemon Black, White, Black 2 and White 2 Wi-Fi battling league that enforces a casual play-style. This means you don't have to worry about competitively raised Pokemon as they are banned and so you will not encounter them, nor will you be allowed to use them. It is also a journey, in which you will travel around the Celestia Region catching Pokemon, completing quests and making friends.
This guide will serve as a step-by-step instruction manual on how to begin playing in the Wi-Fi League.
Step 1 - Signing Up:
The first thing you need to do is sign-up for the league in the Wi-Fi League Registrations thread.
Inside, you must make a post stating which Pokemon you wish to be your starter. An Official will then approve your registration, and you can begin travelling around Celestia. If you need examples, click the link provided. You can either sign up in either RP form or you can just list your username and the starter Pokemon you want.
Step 2 - Prepare for Battle!:
After you have signed up, you need to raise your starter Pokemon in your Pokemon Black, Pokemon White, Pokemon Black 2 or Pokemon White 2 game.
Pokemon cannot be IV bred or EV trained (definitions of these terms can be found in the rules). Raise your Pokemon to level 25 (or to level 24 if it evolves) with whatever method you like, be it through Rare Candies (not recommended) or fighting random Pokemon (recommended).
Step 3 - Begin your Journey!:
All trainers begin in Andromeda Town.
From there you may begin your journey. At the top of every journey thread, there is a 'travel time' listed. That is how much time must elapse before you can move to any of the routes listed on the journey thread. For example, you must wait 2 hours before going to Route 1 from Andromeda Town. Journey threads will also list various other things, such as available items, important landmarks and any wild Pokemon you may encounter.
Step 4- Explore, Battle, Catch wild Pokemon!:
Once you've begun to explore, feel free to take full advantage of what the league has to offer!
Battling other trainers:
You can battle any other user who has signed up to the Wi-Fi league. You will earn stars, Celestia's currency, for doing so. If you are in the same journey thread as another player, you will earn 4 stars for winning and 3 for losing. Otherwise, you'll earn 3 stars for winning and 2 for losing. Gym leaders offer 10 stars for winning and 2 for losing. You must battle with your Pokemon at level 25, 50 or 75 (your whole party must be the same level). Further explanations and rule-sets can be found in the rules thread.
By travelling in journey threads, Wi-Fi League Officials may cause several events to happen.
Catching Wild Pokemon:
Sometimes, an Official will state that a wild Pokemon has appeared. You may attempt to capture it if you have a Poke Ball. Simply write out a paragraph of the encounter and battle and the Official will then tell you if you've captured a Pokemon.
Further explanations on anything mentioned in this thread can be found in the Rules thread
. If you have any questions, please post in the General Discussion thread or send a PM/VM to any of the Officials.
Good luck and have fun!
