    Default Selling your Pokemon

    Okay don't know how this work so, I'll just go with this. I think all trainers should able to sell there Pokemon but not all of them, twice a year let all trainers put there pokemon up for sale one Pokemon per trainer that was no one abuses it. I see no reason why this can't be done if you can trade Pokemon and Auction them off why not sale them. I see it like this if I have pokemon I don't want anymore I have to keep it or trade but what if I don't want another pokemon for the one I have, what if I just want so cash so I can get some TMS for the other pokemon I have. This way I can get some money. Now how much would you get for selling a Pokemon it would have to a reasonable amount of money how do you get that like this all mart mon go for $3k and from every EM you have on it you get 200 more for it. Now for story Pokemon it would work like this:

    Easiest~ Pokemon go for 2,000

    Simple Pokemon~ go for 3,000

    Medium~ would go for 4,000

    Hard~ go for 9,000

    Complex~ go for 12,000

    Demanding~ go for 20,000

    Merciless~ 30,000

    Stupefying 50,000. Every EM still gets 200 on these Pokemon to.

    Now this is just a base for what they can get since the trainer would be selling the pokemon he can ask for what ever he/she want if it fits this chart so if I have a Hard Pokemon with no EM the max amount I can get is 9,000 but if some one offers me 5,000 for it I can say yes take the money and be gone with it. that how this would work I want to run this I think its a good idea I could be wrong but that up for you Mods to say thanks for you're time.

    Okay, now I'm CONVINCED we're using superpowered slaves

    I think this is a good idea in theory. However, wouldn't the object of gifting be kinda... redundant if this were here? If you didn't want mons, and saw no reason to get anything in return; you'd just gift.

    However, as stated, it's a good idea. Let's just see what people who actually matter (not me) say.

    Where did you get the idea you can auction Pokemon? The Auction place is for mod-started auctions only.

    Anyway, this has been brought up many a time before, and it's always been shot down, for good reason. The main flaw with your price chart is that it doesn't take evolutions into account. Magikarp is an Easiest mon, but Gyarados rockets up to Merciless afaik. That's a nice little 30k bonus twice a year.

    If you don't want a mon any more, give it away at a Gift Station, or find someone to trade with. One man's trash is another man's treasure :3

    We already have a bi-annual event where you can sell your Pokemon and items, but it's usually not worth it because you earn essentially nothing from it or ultimately end up screwing yourself over.

    Still, it would be cool if they gave more depending on value of Pokemon, like lowest required CC/Mart price-3k + 1k for every additional EM.

    Yes, the Garage Sale (or whatever it's called) is a place for you to sell all your unwanted Pokemon (and items as well, for that matter). I'm not sure if it's "bi-annual", but it happens often enough. All Pokemon can be sold for $2000.

    I see what you're trying to do by raising the price, but Pichu Boy raised an excellent point with Gyarados. Also, you shouldn't really ever bin Story mons - chances are very very good that you can get something that's worth more than $2000 in a trade for one.

    I'm sure something like this can be easily controlled if we go by lowest rank.

    No. No no no no no. Never going to happen. Especially at those prices. Besides, anyone who sells a Stupefying Pokemon is either the most desperate for cash yet amazing writer ever or clinically retarded.

    The point of the Garage Sale event isn't to make lots of money, it's to clean out stuff you have absolutely no use for, tidy up your stats, and get a small return as consolation.

    Again, no.

    The price you see on the Pokemon is how much you can get not how much you will get $30,000 for a Merciless Pokemon means the most you can sale for is 30k I can offer you 10 for a Merciless, and you can sale if for that the 30k is max you can get for that Pokemon. Let me put it like this If I offer a trainer 15k for his Pokemon and another trainer offers the hole 30k the trainer selling the Pokemon can decide which offer he/she wants so, sure most of the time the trainer is going to take the 30k but that does not mean he/she will all the time because if I got a offer I would give it to the less depending on the trainer if it was a new one offering the lesse,r and a old trainer offering the high amount I will sale to the new trainer because the old one would have a easier time get that Pokemon then a new trainer would plus a old trainer would have some good Pokmon already.

    So what you're suggesting is a way to auction Pokemon to other URPG members? That's a slightly less horrible concept, but I'm still going to say no. Ideas like this have been suggested quite a few times, and would probably work in theory, but ANY implementation of them completely undermines the Trade and Gift systems that we already have in place.

    The gift and trade systems are fine all I'm saying is we should be able to sale our Pokemon every now and then if we want to and make some cash off it. we could hold this once a year and that would be fine, but it will not undermined the rest of the systems why wait for a mod to do a Auction when i can sale my Pokemon right now and most of the time some people can't go to Auction because they don't have enough money in the first place. On top of that gifting is cool so is trading, but like I said why not be able to sale at least once a year and get some real cash for it.The Garage Sale is good but I'm talking about selling one Pokemon not cleaning my stats. This idea can work all it takes is some one willing to take the time to do it right and all the pieces will come together.

    Okay, sure. If you want this idea to work, then develop it and go for it! Let me ask you a question, though: what happens with Pichu Boy's scenario. What's stopping someone from writing a Magikarp (like maybe an hour writing), earning 3.5k for the basics, and then getting 30k for it in this yearly event? You're getting almost 35k for an hour's work, which is clearly far too much. How would you propose to stop this from happening?

    Alright, from what I can tell you're suggesting a single event, once a year, where people can auction a Pokemon from their own stats? That is something I could genuinely support, and I think would work really nicely with some development and strict rules. I'd suggest something like the following.

    A limit to the number of Pokemon you may offer - I'd suggest only one or three at max.
    No minimum or maximum value for an auction, within reason. Bids should start and $1,000 and increase as normal. However if someone were to bid $100k on a Magikarp, an official could prevent it as abuse of the system.
    Event structure. It seems like something of this nature would need a sub-board, so that each person had their own thread where they make their offer and people can post bids. That, or one single thread where people make their "offer" post, and update it regularly based on PM or IM bids.

    @ChainReaction01

    Its like I said before some one may put that Pokemon up for sale but who's going to pay 30k for it? like you said it might take maybe a hour to get that story done anyone could do that. plus I said the max amount was 30k that mean you can offer any amount up to that just because you want 30k, does mean some one is going to pay that much the most you might get in a offer might be 10k for that Pokemon and if that's all you can take it or leave it. The 30k and 50k all that is so you can not charge a outrages prices for a Pokemon no ifs no ands and no but about it that the max you can ask for, you my not get all of it you may not ask for that much it just a safe line so people can take all your money. and just because you're selling it does not mean some one going to buy it remember not every one has enough money to that much so, if so one does offer you only 5k you don't have to wait for another offer if you want sell the Pokemon to a noob or who ever it is and have a nice day to you and luck guy who just got a new Pokemon.

    As for Monbrey the rules you put down I agree with, but like I said one Pokemon a year or two but that for you Mods to say.

    Oh, my bad, you want to auction your Pokemon to other Trainers, not just dump them into the system. That's much more reasonable. I like Monbrey's thoughts on the matter. That's what you should do - set up a proposal in easy to understand dot-points, it helps head off early-stage confusion.

    But yes, I'd get behind this, but each auction would need to be watched by an Official/Mod to make sure that everything is fair dinkum.

    When did the NBL merge with the URPG?

    lolol /pe2k joke

    I think auctioning them off would be cool, but I think majority of pokemon that would end up being auctioned wouldn't be all that great. (everyone auctioning machamp)
