    I'm not sure about the National Park policy, though; you might want to PM one of the Rangers about that. ...I should probably know this.

    You don't even have to feature that Pokemon, when it comes down to it. So long as it shows up, it's fine, is the rule.
    Ok, thanks for your help! I'll get around to PMing a ranger.. soon..

    I know for a fact that battles in the NP don't count, cause Chainy told me they don't when I first signed up for the NP.

    There is an ancient set of RP battle rules though. Meaning a battle can be conducted and reffed via roleplaying. No idea how they work.

    Alaska is right, battles in the National Park don't count towards a Pokemon evolution.

    And Monbrey is somewhat right - if he's talking about the rules in the Ultra Worlds subforum what actually happens is any battles that are declared in there can be taken to the Forum Battles subforum and battled for real there, with a ref and everything. If the battle stays in the Ultra Worlds RP anything can go down, I believe. But unless the battle is recorded in a Referee log somewhere, it doesn't count towards a Pokemon's evolution.

    Monbrey is all the way right. There's an alternate battle format (as in, the choices between DPPt, GSC, Revo, et cetera) called anime. It's roll-playing based.

    Had a quick question, if anyone knows the answer. Didn't recall reading specifics.

    If you write for multiple mons in one story, do you have to have that many show up in the story, or is just one of them being in it okay?

    Like I'm writing a story that has two Buneary in it. Is it okay to try to claim three from the story if I have enough characters? Or would I have to include another one as part of my story?

    Thanks. Came up while talking to Monbrey.

    This is sketchy enough that it's ultimately up to the grader to judge how you handled the multiple capture... so make sure you find one who likes you? Most should, and probably will, fail you, regardless of the success of the story. The only requirement of URPG is that the captured Pokémon is somewhere within the body of the story; we're pretty lenient about show-time for Pokémon, and stretching that rule any farther than it's already gone is potentially insulting.

    I think the only instance I, as the grader, would let someone get away with this is if they wrote an extended author's note expounding on the theory of multiple realities, and how, through theories of synergy and multiplicity, because their story features one Buneary, their story features all Buneary. That would just entertain me to the point of giving it to them. But now that I've said it, no one can do it. So ha.

    All that said, if another grader gives it an okay, and can justify it in their grade, and to me, when I yell at them for it, the rules are sketchy enough that I wouldn't press the issue.

    Not sure if this was answered, but here we go.

    You don't have to own a Pokemon to have it appear in any of your stories, whether it's as the main character's Pokemon, the Pokemon themselves, or whatever. Basically your stats have no effect on your stories at all.

    As for Grading, I'll see what I can work out.

    lol@ double post

    So, we've got NaNoWriMo coming up here rather shortly. It's what, 10k words? I think it's a great chance for us to go for those Demanding mons that we all know we want, assuming 5 chars per word. Who's with me, now?
