Section Overviews

Main Areas
There are five major sections of the URPG: Battling, writing stories, the National Park roleplay, participating in Contests, and drawing Pokémon.

Battles
Battles are the most popular aspect to the URPG, since there is no 4-move limit. Visit the link below to learn everything about Battles.
Reffing Encyclopedia

Stories
This is where you write a story to catch Pokémon or earn cash. Visit the link below to learn everything about Stories.
Writing Encyclopedia

National Park
The URPG National Park allows trainers to catch Pokémon by interacting with other trainers and wild Pokémon through roleplaying. The smaller-scale runs are a nice medium for those who are new to RP or writing in general.

Contests
Contests seem to be a favorite past time among some members. You are a Coordinator, and your aim is to win ribbons. Contest Credits can be earned along with cash, which can be exchanged for Pokémon, TMs, and more!
Judging Encyclopedia

Art Gallery
The Art Gallery lets members have a creative outlet while gaining rewards. Draw art pieces of Pokémon-related subjects and get it curated, and you just might have a chance of capturing the Pokémon that you’ve drawn or earning some cash! Visit the link below to learn more about the Art section.

Other Areas

Here’s a look at some important threads you might want to look at.

We have our very own Pokedex. You can use this to check for moves that your Pokémon learn, their evolution stages and methods, abilities, methods of obtaining, and more.

The Marketplace
You can find all your shopping needs, as well as other different ways to buy items and Pokemon here! This includes The PokeMart, The Underground, and the Auction Room. All wages of the respective sections will also be posted here. For a more detailed description, please visit the Marketplace thread.

Trading Machine
Want a better Pokémon? Want to evolve that Machoke into a Machamp? Want to trade away a mon for some items or TMs? Find someone else to trade with.
*Note that giving Pokémon or anything in your stats to another Trainer outside of trades or gift stations is ILLEGAL. You will not be allowed do this.
*Note also that the Trading Machine may be bypassed for trade evolutions with the purchase of a Link Cable.

Legendaries
These Pokémon can only be won through special contests, tournaments, or defeating the Elite Trainers. Legendary Pokémon can be either temporary or permanent, depending on the circumstances of obtainment. See this page for more information on how to obtain them. Legends will be recorded in the Legend Log (PWN |PXR).

Trainer’s Court
This is where you can bring a topic up and want judgment on it upon the Moderators and Officials. It’s like a suggestion but for major topics only. You can take crimes to court also. Check the Court Rules on one of the links below before starting a thread.

Have an idea? A question about one of the rules? Go to the URPG Related Chat thread and post what you have to say. Check the above rules first – your question might already be answered.
URPG General Chat/Questions/Suggestions (PWN | PXR)

Online Chat Room
The URPG makes use of Discord, a web, downloadable client, and mobile app made for communication with gamers in mind. It features both text channels and voice chat. The chats are almost always busy and it’s a great way to meet nearly everyone in the URPG. Please remember this Chat is considered an extension of the forum, so linking to porn or vulgar discussions within it are considered inappropriate. To a lesser extent, we also exist on Skype. Post your usernames in our list to be added: (PWN | PXR)

Backup
The URPG has two branches: The Petalburg Woods Network, and Pokémon Crossroads. Should one of these forums be offline, URPG members should use another during the duration of the downtime.

In case of emergencies, the URPG has a backup forum. It is only to be used when all forums are offline or other situations.

Final Words
Now that you have read the rules, or at least glanced at them, you may apply for your starter Pokémon at Starter Requests (PWN | PXR) and begin the fun at The Ultra RPG. Please respect the rules, members, and staff. Enjoy!

Don’t forget to read each forum’s respective rules (whichever you’re active in). Thanks!
