ALL ABOUT THE WI-FI LEAGUE:
ALL ABOUT CELESTIA:
ALL ABOUT POKEMON:
Q: Man, this game looks awesome! How do I sign-up?
Q: Official? What is that?
A: Head on over to the sign-up thread
! From there, make a post either in role play stating your character's experience in Professor Cedar's Pokemon lab and making sure to state somewhere which starter Pokemon you would like or simply provide your character's name and the starter Pokemon you want. An Official will approve your post if it is done correctly and you can begin your journey.
Q: Alright, I've signed up! Now what?
A: An Official is a member of the PokemonElite2000 forums that ensures that the Wi-Fi League is running smoothly. They approve all player sign-ups and purchases and also activate events around Celestia for trainers to engage in. The list of Officials can be found in the rules thread
Q: I want to buy some of the items in the PokeMart or the Pokemon in the Pokemon Ranch. What are stars and how do I get some?
A: Excellent! Head on over to the Wi-Fi League Trainer Records
sub-forum and make a trainer record. You can look at examples there if you are having difficulty. After that, begin your journey in Andromeda Town
. For more information about travelling, read the rules thread
or check out the 'ALL ABOUT CELESTIA' section in this FAQ.
ALL ABOUT BATTLING:
Q: Where do I get the Pokemon for my Wi-Fi League account? Do I catch them myself in my 5th generation Pokemon game, or does an official trade it to me?
Q: How do I get more Pokemon?
Q: What level should I catch my Pokemon at?
Q: What level do Pokemon battle at?
Q: What moves can I teach my Pokemon?
A: There are various ways to obtain new Pokemon in the Wi-Fi League. You may encounter and attempt to catch them on your journey in Celestia, you may purchase them from the Pokemon Ranch
in any town, you may receive them in trades from other players or as rewards in events and competitions. When you have received a new Pokemon in the Wi-Fi League, add it to your trainer record, catch it and then train it in your Pokemon game.
Q: Can I evolve my Pokemon?
A: To begin with, your Pokemon may only know moves it learns via level up or egg moves (for egg moves, they may only be learned if they cannot also learn that move via TM). If you want your Pokemon to learn TMs and HMs, you must find the TM or HM within Celestia - these can be obtained from PokeMarts
, random routes in Celestia or from defeating gym leaders - they cannot be used until you have found them. As for Move Tutor moves, you must find the Move Tutor in the Celestia Region and learn the move there before using them.
Q: What about trade or item-induced evolutions?
A: You cannot evolve your Pokemon as soon as it can naturally in-game - there are a number of requirements you must fulfil first. If your Pokemon can evolve only once, they must have participated in at least 30 battles. Then, you may post in the evolution thread
and fill out the form stating you want to evolve your Pokemon - this costs 10 stars. If your Pokemon can evolve twice, they must have participated in at least 20 battles to evolve into the first form - you must post this in the evolution thread and pay 5 stars. To evolve into its second form, the Pokemon must have participated in at least 50 battles altogether, have this posted in the evolution thread and pay 10 stars.
