Thanks. One other question, how do abilities here work/are calculated?
Abilities work almost the same as in the games. The only real differences between the regular game and URPG are inside the Nat Park, since it's akin to the anime in that regard. Take Slaking's Truant; in the games and standard URPG battles, it misses a turn, in the park, it's just lazy.
The Greater the Affliction, the Greater the Reward.
You choose which ability your Pokémon has whenever you send it in battle. For the Park I believe you choose the Pokémon's ability when you post in the Front Gate. So technically, your Growlithe has both Intimidate or Flash Fire, (or even it's Dream World Ability, Justified, if you've taught it that from the Pokémart) it's just that you can use only one of them at a time.
Adding on to above, Abilities aren't used in the GSC/Stadium styles of battling in URPG, apart from a select few which would be broken otherwise (Slaking's Truant and Regigigas' Slow Start are two I can think of off the top of my head). But barely anyone uses those two styles in serious battles, so it's not a huge deal.
