A Word From Your Editor(s)
Hey there, everyone! You may have noticed that it's been three weeks since the previous URPG Times instead of the usual two. Don't worry, it's not a lack of activity- it's because this week there is a special double issue in honor of the opening of our TPW branch! This means that all of you who submitted work get paid 1.5X as much. Congratulations to all our great staff members here at the Times! For the rest of you, there's going to be more content than normal, which makes for an exciting read. Get excited everybody, we're going to TPW!
If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Gman, please let me know. He was last spotted near a Hasselhoff concert.
News and Announcements
Hello TPW! Let me be one of the first to welcome you to our large URPG family. My name's SLC, and so long as you remain active, you'll be seeing me around a lot. The transition was smooth, and you'll all be settling in quite well over the next few weeks – there are a lot of events lined up for you lot, including the Dojo League, auctions, competitions and a whole lot more! Just be sure to bare with us for a while while we have time to make sure everything is perfect and ready for you as soon as possible. I hope to see you soon, and if you need any help don't hesitate to ask me or any other member :)
Since our last issue, we've had seven members take the step up to a higher power, and here's a thanks from everybody for the good work you've already put in. Alaska, Roulette, Fierce Deity and EmBreon have all been promoted to officials (the second time, for Emma), while Monbrey and AmericanTreeFrog have become new moderators. Finally, Webmaster has taken up the vacant position of senior ref, meaning he can now take your ref tests and quizzes. Once again, we voice our congratulations to these people.
Budget Tournament Over!
It's been four months since it's started, but the Budget Tournament finally ended this week, culminating in Fierce Deity being crowned the winner after defeating Ash K in the finals. He claimed a Volbeat as his prize, while Ash took home a Litwick. In the third-place match, ATF took victory over WTP, and earned himself the bronze medal (an imaginary one, of course).
At the time of writing, there are several gyms open. Here's an easy list, so you can see what to apply for. For the TPW members, I suggest checking out the Dojo League, created exclusively for you.
Monbrey is offering up:
Pman is offering:
Each week, besides the submissions from our employees for the Comics section of the URPG Times, we also welcome submissions from the community! Remember, we pay $1,500 for each submission usually. The amount paid might be adjusted accordingly based on your comic and permanent employees will be paid slightly higher. You don't have to be a professional as well; the only criteria is for it to be funny! PM comic submissions to Alaskapigeon or Gmandiddy.

The URPG Quiz
Welcome TPW people to my treacherous quiz. Each question is worth a certain amount of points. Though the average is usually 3 points a question, some are worth more and some are worth less. Each point pays $250. Another little thing I wanted to throw in was an additional section of questions worth 25 points that only TPW members can answer. Find these additional questions at the bottom. One last thing, nobody has ever gotten 100% on my quiz. Will you be the first? Good luck! (you're gonna need it)
Noctowl/M/Keen Eye @ 58% BRN; Dusclops/M/Pressure holding Eviolite @ 6% Def+3 SpDef+3 [IMPRISON]
That Dusclops is gonna stall you till your Burn KOs. Since you're imprisoned, you can't Night Shade him and get this over with. It's not like Quick Attack works either considering it's ghost type (and you don't learn it iirc). Not to mention it has Def+3. There are a couple ways to solve this one but one in particular will ensure the victory in one turn. Dusclops will keep using Endure to stall. What is the solution to win this battle?
Gliscor/M/Poison Heal w/ Iron Ball @ 100%; Metagross/NG/Clear Body w/ Lefties @ 100%
Gliscor uses Fling
Metagross uses Earthquake
