Section Overviews

Main Areas
There are six major sections of the URPG: Battling, writing stories, the National Park roleplay, participating in Contests, drawing Pokemon, and the After Hours roleplay.

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 Pokemon or earn cash. This is the main way to obtain new Pokemon for your team. Visit the link below to learn everything about Stories.
Writing Encyclopedia

National Park
The URPG National Park allows trainers to catch Pokemon by interacting with other trainers and wild Pokemon 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 and participate in leagues. Contest Credits can be earned along with cash, which can be exchanged for Pokemon or TMs!

Art Gallery
The Art Gallery lets members have a creative outlet while gaining rewards. Draw art pieces of Pokemon-related subjects and get it curated, and you just might have a chance of capturing the Pokemon 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.

The Ultra Dex
We have our very own PokeDex. You can use this to check for moves that your Pokemon learn, their evolution stages and methods, abilities, methods of obtaining, and more.

You can find all your shopping needs, chances to enter contests, and quizzes to make money in this section. You can find The PokeMart, The Underground, and the Auction Room here. All wages of the respective sections will also be posted here. For a more detailed description, please visit the Marketplace thread.

Legendaries
These Pokémon can only be won through special contests, tournaments, or defeating the Elite Trainers.

Legends will be recorded in the Legend Log (BMG | 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 first before starting a thread.

Suggestions
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 (BMG | 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 AIM and Skype. Post your usernames in our list to be added: (BMG | PWN | PXR)

Backup
The URPG has three branches: BulbagardenThe Petalburg Woods Network, and Pokemon 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 (BMG | 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!
