A Word From Your Editor
We're back again! I've had a busy weekend and was able to only work on this in the weekends. Coincidentally, the publishing dates for the Times so far, all fall on weekends anyway. Without ado, I present to you this week's Times. There aren't as much content as the previous issue, but the important sections are still there, if you get what I mean. ;)
News And Events
By Ataro, Story Segments By Evanfardreamer
The hold item, Eject Button, is back in the Pokemart! There have also been updates for the descriptions/mechanics in the Reffing Encyclopedia and All About Battles, for Eject Button, Mental Herb, Pickup, Fling, and Multi-Hit Moves. Do refer to the link if you want more details.
B/W Pokémon Tournament
The matchups for Round One are up! Get battling, gogo!
Yeah, that's right! For those of you that have been wanting a gym! Vermillion City and Pummelo Island are open for application. If you want a shot at these, do hurry and apply for it. Don't forget to read the rules though!
It looks like Crustle is up for bid! Here's your chance to get the first Crustle ever in URPG, as well as the first B/W Pokémon ever to be auctioned! Doesn't it sound exciting? If you're interested in a Crustle, or one of the aforementioned reasons, do quickly get over to either forum's Auction House and quickly place your bid, because the bid is closing soon!
Winter Writing Competition
The competitors, in no particular order, are Mobile Suit Metagross by Taras Bulba and Dragonskin by Natorei. They tied in what was originally going to be the final round, and are now in a sudden death overtime. Make sure that you get over there and vote for the supreme winner, as you only have until Friday, March 18th to do so.
New Abilities in National Park!
The Park have now been updated with the new B/W abilities, as well as the changes to specific abilities that have had their mechanic changed in B/W! Roleplay is even more exciting now!
New URPG Professionals!
Ash K. and Shozuka are our newest baby referee and baby grader respectively! Let's annoy them with our reffing and grading requests. I even provided you a link to their profile!
Click Here to bother Ash K.! Click Here to bother Shozuka!
Yeah, if you don't know yet, we do take in announcement requests for The URPG Times. Don't worry, for it is free of charge! If you would like to display an announcement for whatever reason, or shoutouts, just PM them to me. Of course, please keep it appropriate.
And here's are they (only one this week).

Since we had zero submissions, I figured I would just feature some of the comics that were entered in the 2009 version of the URPG Comic Competition.
Decision by The Jr Trainer
This was really funny if you get it.
Life and Times of URPG Leaders by EmBreon
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! My personal favorite!
May and URPG by Haze
If you would like to view the other comics (they were all pretty funny), you can visit this thread. That's all. Remember, I pay $1,500 for each submission. You don't have to be a professional as well; the only criteria is for it to be funny! PM comic submissions to me, Ataro.
