1)Can I register as a trainer? Yes, you can. For the plot to unravel there must be trainers and other humans.
2)So basically this forum is about pokemon hating humans? No. This forum was created to show the other side of the story. Yes, in the story there are pokemon who truly adore their trainers and would risk arm and limb for them, but think about this; if you took an animal and forced it to fight, how do you think it feels? Some pokemon might enjoy it, but again there are many different pokemon. This is just the other side of the story. How do they really feel?
3)Do pokemon have genders? Yes, as you noticed from the game pokemon do indeed have genders.
4)I can only rp a certain pokemon? Yes, for your first pokemon you have a choice of seven different pokemon. Later you may of course adopt more.
5)Are there battles? Yes. Whether you are a tamed or wild pokemon there will indeed be battles.
6)What are Pokepoints? The currency in the game are pokepoints.
7)How do I get Pokepoints? By posting. You get 3 pokepoints for everytime you post. If you recruit you get 200 pokepoints for each member you've recruited.
8)What can I get with Pokepoints? You may browse the shop and buy what you can afford, from some training points to a mysterious egg.
9)What are training points and how do I earn them? If you look in your profile you will see a bar. It tells you how many training points you need to get to the next level. You earn training points everytime you post.
10)What level do I start at? If you just create an account then create your pokemon, you start at level 5. That is when you are "born". If you adopt a pokemon or get a second pokemon, you start at any level under 20. If you buy a super rare pokemon, you start at whatever level it is.
11)How do pokemon communicate? They talk, just like we communicate, though they speak in the way they do. Also their body language. They can communicate with other pokemon too.
12)The items in the store are only located there? No. Eggs you can get by winning a contest, by event, or just by breeding.
13)When I create my pokemon it already knows advanced moves?No. Your pokemon will know whatever is normal for it's level. You may buy moves from the store though.
14)What do pokemon eat in the wild?Think of their animal counterparts. For example a bird eats insects and seeds, so if you are a pidgey, you will hunt bug pokemon.
15)I'm going to eat other pokemon? Not if that's not what your pokemon eats. If you don't want to tell the details of you eating someone else then you can fade it out.
16)Can I choose to be trained, even though i'm wild? Yes! You can request a pokemon trainer in the character request board. Someone will reply to you promptly and then you two will start a thread, battle, and you will have a trainer.
17)If I don't want to be caught will I be forced to? No. You don't have to do anything you don't want to.
18)Why are pokemon so defensive before they are caught, but affectionate afterwards? Pokemon have no choice in the matter. When they are caught, they're caught. Unless the trainer releases them they're caught for life. Might as well get comfortable right? But of course this doesn't mean some don't develop a bond with their trainer and enjoy them. Some learn to love being trained and cared for. Remember in the wild it's fight or be fought. They must fight to survive, but as a trained pokemon your pampered (mostly) and fed. Almost no worries.
19)How do pokemon age? For every human year they age 1.5 years.
20)How did the site come upon being created? The admin (me) reads alot and is an animal lover. Just how animals are treated, I wanted to see how Pokemon really act if treated so brutally.
