Default READ FIRST: ASB Handbook

Welcome to the PE2K Anime Style Battling League, or ASBL, for short!

What is ASBL?
The PE2K ASBL is a forum based game in which you can raise Pokémon and battle others for the title of ASB Champion. This is different from other forum games and traditional Pokémon games because it holds strong roleplaying elements - think of ASB like a tabletop game. It's a role play that's controlled by numbers. It's worth a try if you're looking for something different, and you enjoy being rewarded for creativity. It's called anime style battling as it follows the anime closely in how battling is done - not everything is strict, as the games demand.

How do I....

begin playing?
You'll need to choose your starter Pokémon in the Registration thread.

manage money?
The Bank is where you can view how much money to have. Winning battles, running a shop, or getting a job are good ways to make more money.

post my stats?
You are required to post your Stats in the Trainer Stats board.

You'll first need to issue or accept a challenge. You should also make it a point to learn how to battle.

battle in a tournament or challenge a Gym Leader?
When a tournament is being held, we'll make an announcement, and threads should appear in the Tournament Forum. Gyms are also found in that forum - post in the threads to issue a challenge!

get more Pokemon?
You can either catch Pokémon in the Safari Zone, or purchase Pokémon in the Adoption Center. Additionally, there will be several special events and tournaments which may give out Pokemon as prizes, so keep checking for such things.

get Shiny Pokemon?
You'll just have to be...lucky!

evolve my Pokemon?
The Evolution Dojo is where you can evolve your Pokémon.

power up my Pokemon?
The Vitamin Shop contains great powerups for your Pokémon.

start my own business?
Visit the Dragon's Den to apply for a business.

become a Referee?
There is a guide to becoming a Referee.

become a Ranger?
There is a guide to becoming a Safari Ranger.

become a Gym Leader?
Gym Leader Applications are always "open", but as of right now, we're not looking for anymore Gym Leaders.

ask a question, or give a suggestion?
You can post any questions you have in the Question and Answer Thread, and they'll be answered as soon as possible, but try and see if the question has already been answered in the various informational threads. We'll try to keep a running list of questions in the next post.

contact the staff?
You should check the full Staff list in order to figure out whom you should be contacting.

become an ASB Official?
All Officials will need to be Rangers in good standing. Officials are added as needed, and won't be given to those who ask. So don't ask. Work to be helpful and productive, and you'll be noticed for your efforts when we need more help.

What's the difference between ASB Official and ASB Moderator?
ASB Officials work to keep ASB running. They run any and all official ASB threads. They are also Referees and Rangers.
ASB Moderators work to improve ASB by making major changes. Moderators schedule events, add new features, and can administer punishments when required to. They are also Referees and Rangers.

Default Previously Asked Questions

Have all the Generations been implemented?
Yes. All attacks, abilities and Pokémon have been implemented into the system. The only exceptions to this rule are the following:
Abilities: Frisk, Harvest, Honey Gather, Klutz, Pickpocket, Pickup, Unburden, and Unnerve.
Attacks: Trick, Recycle, Embargo, Switcheroo, Magic Room, Bestow, Fling and the Shadow
moves from Pokémon XD/Pokémon Colosseum.

They will only be implemented if items/Shadow mechanics are officially implemented, which there are no plans for at this point.

Nicknames are mandatory when registering pokemon, or any other method of obtaining pokemon, correct? I also assume if that is correct, they cannot be nicknamed the pokemon they are.
EX: I can't nickname Sneasel, Sneasel.

Nicknames are not mandatory and they can be whatever you like.

What are my Pokemon's stats? What does this ability or attack do?
Your answers can all be found in the Compendium.

When it says in the Compendium to take into account whether the Pokemon is airborne, underwater, in fog, etc, what does it mean?
Basically means use common sense on whether certain moves hit or miss. For instance, Magnezone naturally floats, and would thus be considered Airborne. So even though it doesn't have Levitate as an ability, it's not going to be affected by Earthquake, obviously. Unlike if it had Levitate, though, a move like Earth Power can still hit.

Can Chills be used as part of a conditional?

Are moves like Leech Seed, Aqua Ring or Ingrain direct recovery moves?
If your opponent placed "no direct recovery moves" as a battle clause, you'll need to ask them - none of the battle clauses are officially ASB supported.

If a Pokemon is paralyzed and is ordered to chill, then it won't gain the +6 Energy (assuming the ref rolled for PRZ), right? So, it that just it, or is there a subtraction from the user's energy due to the mon trying to chill?
The Pokemon would not gain or lose energy. It would not do anything but be paralyzed.

Can someone be a customer of their own buisness? If so how does the whole money thing work out...?
You pay the fee, like a normal customer, but you will not receive the $5 benefit in your paycheck as you normally would per customer.

How do I get Dream World/Hidden Abilities?
You can change your Ability to a Dream World ability at the Dream Center.

Can I use a Pokemon that's currently in a Safari Exploration in a battle while it's still in a Safari run?

Can we use combination attacks?
Yes. Read the how to battle thread!

What's required to be a ref?
An ASB account. A pulse.

Can you do multiple park runs at once?]
If by 'park', you mean Safari Zone, then no; just one at a time~

Does dodging take up an action?
yes, it does.

If someone were going to be inactive for awhile while having unfinished battles, would those battles be postponed or something until the person came back?
Majority of the time, yes, but if you say in your leaving post that you want to keep the battles open, then we probably will, unless you'll be gone for more then a few weeks.

If I use Sleep Talk when my Pokemon is asleep during the battle, do I get to choose which move comes out or is there some formula to it?
The Ref decides using the RNG.

The shiny bonus for battles, is that per shiny, or just a one time thing?
One time deal.

What happens when you Encore someone using Substitute, exactly?
Velocity used Sub!
paperfairy used Encore!
Velocity used Sub! A sub is already in play, it fails.
paperfairy uses SHOOP DA WHOOP! Substitute is broken.
Velocity used Sub! A sub is not in play, it does not fail.

Can a pokemon that learn a sig move (I mean the
move is approved when the battle is in progress)
during a battle can use it in a battle?

No, you're only allowed to use a Pokemon's sig move in battles it enters after it's approved.

And, does the sig move remains or removed when
the pokemon evolves?

Yes, the move automatically carries over.

Is it possible to have a hailstorm inside a building? Because I don't think it should be.
I certainly wouldn't ref it as such. The same with any weather system. Yes, it would be hailing outside, but unless the roof blows off, it shouldn't have any effect inside.

With the 30% off, is the number rounded up or down?
ASB always rounds up. Always. Always.

do ASB owners get the money spent in their shops on top of the $5 per customer thing or no?
No, they just get $5 per costumer.

If the first opponent uses rain dance and the second uses sandstorm, do both of these weather conditions function together or does sandstorm cause rain dance to end since sand storm was used second?
Weather moves cancel out the current weather. So yes, Sandstorm will cancel out the rain.

Would a Gym battle count towards the 3 battle maximum?

I just wanted to confirm that toxic cannot "stack" if used twice like toxic spikes.
Toxic can not stack with toxic, the move would fail and you would waste energy.
Other statuses you can stack, but Toxic and poison don't. e__e

So, if I want to buy a mon from the UPD, do I have to wait until the seller and dealer set the correct price, then I buy it?
Or can I just bid a price there?

Pretty much only place you can bid is either the Auction tent or of course, during Events. But yeah, if you want to buy a Mon from UPD, you can choose from those available in the 2nd post. Basically the dealer raises the price (about a dollar or two) of the mon they buy from the player before selling them to others.

How will the gym matches work? Is it just who ever wants a battle gets one? Or do you have to earn it like in the game how you battle a few others first? Or earn the chance like in a tournament? Or is that up to the leader?
Every Gym has their own requirements. As long as you've fulfilled them, you're allowed to battle the Gym.

Can a mon change his registered/approved sig move to a new one?
Just get it approved and delete the old one.

Can a clone (from Double Team) perform an attack? Like, the clone uses Flamewheel, and the real Mon uses Thunderbolt to the clone to make it a combo attack of an electric fire wheel?
They're copies - they're incapable of dealing actual damage. As for commanding them, I was under the impression that they worked like mirror images, so they mimic whatever you do.

What if I use Baton Pass/Teleport/U-Turn/Volt Switch in the new Safari? Do I end my safari or I switch pokemon?
Baton Pass, Volt Switch and U-Turn switches.
Teleport ends.

Would it count towards your KO's for Vitamins if you went into the safari zone and just killed everything?
Yep. That was the whole point, actually.
