The staff have agreed that the previous new rule on basic battling was a little too strict, and as such the following changes will be implemented.
All basic Pokemon can earn a random amount of money from battling in 1v1 battles, to be determined by a 500-sided dice roll at the end of the battle.
However this can only occur on Wednesday's, every second Tuesday, the 13th and 25th of each month regardless of what day this is, and months that have a blue moon.
To balance this new system, no battles involving fully evolved Pokemon will pay anybody anything.
All gym Pokemon must now be wildca-Oh nevermind, you get the idea, I'm trolling.
What's actually happening is that from now on, you may draw the evolved form of a Pokemon for submission in the art gallery in an attempt to capture the basic form, such a piece of artwork depicting Charizard for a Charmander.
This means that by drawing Charizard, you only have to meet the score requirements of a Charmander. However keep in mind that we won't be giving any lenience just because you've chosen to draw a more challenging subject - it will still be held to the same standards we would expect for the basic Pokemon.
