Default VPP ~ Unova

- Matt

Welcome to the VPP, a time-honored activity of PE2Ks (and now TPW) where you raise a virtual Pokemon while you post on the forum. TPW's thread
Created by: The Elite Ygseto & Omis
Getting Started

Basic Mechanics
  • VPP Pokemon start out as an egg. They hatch after 15 posts are made and the hatched Pokemon starts at level 5.
  • VPP Pokemon gain a level every 3 posts, for a grand total of 300 posts to reach level 100.
  • VPP Pokemon evolve as normal if the Pokemon evolves via level up.
  • If the Pokemon evolves via special condition (such as evolutionary stone, trade, day/night, happiness...) it will evolve at level 40.
  • If the Pokemon already evolved by happiness or anything else, and evolves again with a stone, then it will evolve at level 80.
  • Once a VPP Pokemon reaches level 100, it is sent to your Hall of Fame and you may raise a new VPP.

To join and receive your very own VPP, if you have at least 10 posts, just make a new post filling out the following form:
Post Count:
Simply fill that out in a new post in this thread and you should be all set.

  • Only talk about VPP here, there are other threads for chatting. If you go off topic here (or spam anywhere on PE2K), you will be punished.
  • No cheating, obviously.
  • Don't copy/steal the VPP for your own or another forum.
  • You may not calculate your own VPP numbers.

Punishments for breaking the rules include temporary and permanent suspension from the VPP. Typically, a warning is given prior to punishment.

A temporary suspension from the VPP means you cannot level up, evolve or finish your VPP Pokemon until the decided number of posts is finished. You aren't allowed to post in this thread until then either. If the posts during your suspension period are deemed spam, expect the suspension to be extended.

A permanent suspension from the VPP means you're banned forever. You forfeit your VPP and are no longer allowed to participate in VPP-related threads.

Suspension List:

First Steps
After you have made a post in this thread with the completed form, it's up to waiting for an Acceptor or a Moderator to approve your application.
After you have been accepted, you are recommended to make a post in the VPP Breeder Stats thread to track your progress and record your completed VPPs. It's recommended to place a link to your stats post in your signature. In addition you may choose to display your current VPP in your signature.

Provided are some sprites you may use for your eggs (credits to Matthew).

Bug Egg, Dark Egg, Dragon Egg, Electric Egg, Fighting Egg, Fire Egg, Flying Egg, Ghost Egg, Grass Egg, Ground Egg, Ice Egg, Normal Egg, Psychic Egg, Poison Egg, Rock Egg, Steel Egg, Water Egg

Here is a collection of in-game egg sprites put together by 3m0d0ll.

As for Pokemon sprites, you are encouraged to check out the PE2K Sprite Resource, but you are obviously allowed to let your creativity run free.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask in this thread! (Though check out the next section first! )

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Q: How do I put my egg/Pokemon into my signature?
A: First, find the image that you want to use (check above for some useful links). Once you have found the image you'd like you use, copy the image URL (location) by right-clicking on the image. Paste the URL into your signature and put the [IMG] code before the URL, and the [/IMG] code after the URL.

Q: Why hasn't my VPP image changed when my Pokemon hatched/evolved?
A: The picture won't change itself, it's something you have to change yourself.

Q: How do I view my VPP stats in a single post?
A: Click the bold and underlined number in the top right hand corner of your post. That will link you to a page with only that post.

Q: How do I link to my VPP stats post in my signature?
A: Copy the single post URL of your stats post and paste in into your signature. Before the URL, place the following segment of code: [URL="
After the URL, place the following segment of code: "] Now you can put whatever you want to link to your post (text or an image). After you have that, add the last segment of code: [/URL]

Q: Can I use a Pokemon as a requirement more than once?
A: Yes, yes can. However, a Pokemon may not be re-used on the same set of requirements

Q: If I have a dual-type VPP, what type does it count as when counting towards requirements?
A: It counts for either type, you choose. However, a dual-type Pokemon only counts for one type in a set of requirements, not both.

Q: Can my VPP be shiny/special colored?
A: Yes, they can be shiny, and you can make your own recolors.

Q: Can a Legendary be used to obtain another Legendary/other requirement Pokemon?
A: Yes, once completed it can be used like a regular Pokemon for requirements.

Special Pokemon
There are certain Pokemon that have special requirements to obtain and raise. Some of these Pokemon also have their own set of mechanics that differ from regular VPPs.

Legendary Pokemon
  • Only certain Legendary Pokemon are available: the ones from the current region.
  • You may only reserve one Legendary Pokemon per region.
  • Legendary VPPs hatch at level 50 and gain a level every 5 posts. This means it takes a total of 265 posts to complete a Legendary (15 to hatch, 250 to reach level 100).
  • In order to raise a Legendary VPP, you must raise other Pokemon first. Each Legendary has a unique set of 3 type requirements that must be fulfilled in order to obtain the Legendary.
  • You may reserve a Legendary via PMing Kaoru once you have completed 2 of the 3 requirements. You may only reserve a Legendary if it will be your next VPP (THAT MEANS WORKING ON YOUR FINAL REQUIREMENT OR LAST OF 10 POKEMON BEFORE TAKING YOUR NEXT LEGENDARY) . Once you have successfully completed the requirements for a Legendary, you may begin raising it.
  • When you have completed a Legendary Pokemon, you must finish 10 full VPPs until you can obtain another one.

Pairs & Sets
Some Pokemon have the option to come in pairs or sets. A pair of Pokemon takes 4 posts to level up, for a total of 400 posts instead of 600 to do them separately. Pairs and sets all count as a single VPP for requirements and completed VPP totals.

If you have already completed one VPP from a pair and you wish to complete the pair, make a post claiming so. The second VPP will level up each post and will only take 100 posts to complete (5 to hatch at level 5, 95 to reach level 100).

Master Pokemon
Once you have completed 10 full VPPs (not including Baby Pokemon), you reach VPP Master Status. When you reach this status, you may choose one of any Pokemon (other than a Legendary or a Pair/Set) to add to your completed collection without any post requirement. These Master Pokemon may count towards the 10 VPPs between Legendary Pokemon. For every 10 full VPPs you complete, you may obtain another Master Pokemon.

Baby Pokemon
Certain Pokemon qualify as Baby Pokemon in the VPP. These Pokemon do not evolve but only require 100 posts to complete. They do not count towards requirements and you need to have completed at least one previous VPP to raise one.
Aron, Azurill, Bonsly, Budew, Bulbasaur, Charmander, Chespin, Chikorita, Chimchar, Chingling, Cleffa, Cyndaquil, Deerling, Eevee, Elekid, Emolga, Fennekin, Froakie, Geodude, Happiny, Igglybuff, Lillipup, Luvdisc, Magby, Magnemite, Mantyke, Mime Jr., Minun, Mudkip, Munchlax, Oddish, Oshawott, Pichu, Piplup, Poliwag, Plusle, Riolu, Skitty, Smoochum, Snivy, Squirtle, Teddiursa, Tepig, Togepi, Torchic, Totodile, Treecko, Turtwig, Tympole, Tyrogue, Wynaut
Keep in mind you can always take normal VPPs of these Pokemon as well.

Unown are special and require only 200 posts to complete. To raise one, you must have first raised one other VPP. Unown may be used towards requirements, but only 1 Unown may be used in each set. Only 1 Unown counts towards the 10 VPPs you must complete before raising another Legendary and towards Master Status.

Special Offers
Unique VPPs are posted here with special requirements and rules for time to time. Here are the current available VPPs:
None, yet!
