To start a contest, visit the Coordinators Station. Or find other members on messenger, like AIM, YIM, or MSN. Then all participants must agree to either Standard or Advanced rules, decide on what Attribute to use, and which Rank to enter.

During Primary Judging, you must give the judge your Pokemons attribute points so he/she may score you correctly. They are not going to look for them for you.

During Secondary Judging, simply call an attack to use.

During the contest, you can be as open or as secretive as you want. Private messaging your stats and attacks to the Judge may be a better strategy than letting everyone know what you will use.

Afterward, the Judge will add up the scores and the results will be posted.
And, can someone tell me how do you calculate Luster? As in, in the Contest Rules, it is written as all Attributes add up.

But from what I know, shouldn't it be the Luster of all different Pokeblocks added up?

Someone please clarify, I would prefer experienced people to clarify, like DG/Jack, no offense. I need it asap, thankyou.

It's written somewhere there too. The luster is calculated by dividing it by 2 and adding it to the rest of stats,just like as if it was another secondary attribute(the 2 compatible with the contest primary attribute)

here's the equation

Equation = ((B+C+F)/2)+A
where:
A = Primary attribute for the contest (ex. Cool)
B and C = Secondary attributes for the contest (ex. for Cool, these are Beauty and Tough)
F = Pokemon's feel

But if you meant in pokeblock, you divide the smooth of the berry by the number of used berry, then subtract the number of used berry, and you have the luster

Question:

What do Bitter, Sweet, Sour, Dry and Spicy stand for? I mean what attributes do they represent?

Bitter, Sweet, Sour, Dry and Spicy are the flavour of a Berry.

bitter makes Smart attribute, Sweet makes Cute attribute, Sour makes Tough attribute, Dry makes Beauty attribute, Spicy make cool attribute.

I do read the rules.

However, my manual calculations seems to vary from the end results you all provide.

I did all the equations said, and researched on it, but I can't find the problem.

Sometimes, it doesn't match. Like when 10/.8 = shouldn't it be 12.5? and rounded off to 12 cool?

Even when caclcuting luster, manual calculations normally have different with the automatic calculator.

I only managed to get some correct.

For this calculation you made in the Berry Store, link..., did you use manual or automatic?

I believe it's supposed to be: multiply by .8.

But if it's multiply, I believe all the calculations made in the Berry Store will all be wrong.

I choose to believe it's divide. XD

It is so that my manual workings are divide, and they matched Jack's first calculation in the BerrY Store. It's in page 2.

If you divide by .8, you'll get a greater number. If you multiply by .8, ytou'll get a lower number. And you have to get the lower number.

But you divide by .8, then round down. That's how you get the lower number. >_<

It can't be division. Look, DG gave me a block with 48 beauty and 32 smart from these blocks:

| Qualot | $1,000
| Cool: 0 | Beauty: 10 | Cute: 0 | Smart: 10 | Tough: 10 |
| Smooth: 20 |

| Razz | $1,500
| Cool: 10 | Beauty: 10 | Cute: 0 | Smart: 0 | Tough: 0 |
| Smooth: 20 |

| Ganlon | $2,500
| Cool: 0 | Beauty: 40 | Cute: 0 | Smart: 40 | Tough: 0 |
| Smooth: 80 |

My calculation (I had not seen the instruction to divide/multiply/whatever) was 60 beauty and 40 smart.

Multiply 60 by .8- 48!
Multiply 40 by .8- 32!

If I had divided, I would have gotten 75 beauty and 50 smart. There's no way division can possibly come into the equation. Multiplication gave me the same answer as DG. Division... is way off.

Agreed, but I had already asked Jack about it, he said maybe the manual or automatic calculator as some calculations were wrong, he's gonna check on it.

It appears the manual calculation is off. In my example at the Berry Store, division is needed to get the result from the Automatic Calculator. But using Nobody Nerd's blend as an example, multiplication was necessary. Yea, odd...

So let's just use the Automatic Calculation for now until a better manual calculation can be made.
