Anyways, I had wanted to ask if there's a business limit, because I want to do two things.

A. Have a backup business in case the ASB OTBS doesn't work out.

B. Introduce a new concept to ASB. (It's a secret!)
There isn't an official one, although the more businesses you have, the less likely we are to approve.

I think we should be able to get Pokemon without spending ASBL cash. However, I don't mean get them without any work, because that would be unfair.

I was thinking maybe obtaining a Pokemon egg, and after participating/winning in a certain amount of battles, the egg hatches. Or something else, maybe writing stories that feature the Pokemon/writing battle scenarios involving the Pokemon. There would have to be limitations, for example: you can only have 1 egg at a time.

How would you go about obtaining a Pokemon egg, then? We're not going to use story capturing, we're not URPG, but if you can work out a decent way for these no-cost Pokemon eggs we'll look into it.

URPG had contests, and I'm pretty sure that ASBL had them too before. Also, I'm just guessing this, but didn't URPG before ASBL did?

Also, I'm going to start working on a way to implement Pokemon eggs, in the hopes my idea will get implemented.

ASB does have contests, but their structure is under construction and we expect them to be released soon! :D

And yes - try to find a way to introduce and incorporate eggs and post what you've come up with! I'm interested in seeing what you think up :)

ASBL's Contest structure was completely unique from URPG, and the idea was not pretty much yoinked from URPG, but inspired by the existence of Contests in the anime, and a desire to express that creative spark that anime coordinators had that battles simply could not satisfy. Not comparable.

Why I think eggs should be implemented:
Spoiler:
Without eggs, there would not be Pokemon. And Pokemon are in the ASBL, so why are there no eggs? Unless the Pokemon just magically appear, which is very unlikely.

So, my idea is to implement eggs into the ASBL.

How would you get an egg?
Version 1
There would be a thread with different types of eggs listed on the first post. You would get an egg by posting that you want an egg of a specific type, and then you would have it. The Pokemon hatched from the egg would be random, but of that specific type.

Version 2
Where do eggs come from? Breeding, of course! So, you can get an egg by breeding your Pokemon. You would post the two Pokemon you want to breed in a Daycare thread, and after they have been approved (for being in the same egg group and opposite genders), your Pokemon would go into the Daycare. Every battle command you post, your Pokemon will have a chance (undecided) of being found with an egg. The egg will be the species of the female Pokemon. If an egg is bred, it has the egg moves it would know in the games.

How would you hatch an egg?
As we all know, eggs hatch by being brought around with energetic Pokemon. So, the closest thing to being brought around with energetic Pokemon. The closest thing to that in the ASBL is watching energetic Pokemon battle. Egg Cycles pass when a command is given.

For example, Trainer A has a Charmander Egg (with 0 Egg Cycles out of 21 needed). She commands one of her Pokemon to use Tackle~Tackle. The egg would now have 2/21 Egg Cycles. If one of the Tackles missed, the egg would only have 1/21 Egg Cycle.

Let's take that same trainer and egg and the situation that both Tackles hit. Trainer A commands her Pokemon to use Tackle~Tackle, and both hit. The egg would now have 4/21 Egg Cycles. If one of the Tackles from last round missed, but both from this round hit, the egg would have 3/21 Egg Cycles. If a Tackle from each round missed, the egg would only have 2/21 Egg Cycles.

Or, if the ASBL Officals/Mods think its better, each command would count for 2 Egg Cycles.

If a command equaled 2 Egg Cycles, the above situation would be like this:
Trainer A has a Charmander Egg (with 0 Egg Cycles out of 21 needed). She commands one of her Pokemon to use Tackle~Tackle. The egg would now have 4/21 Egg Cycles. If one of the Tackles missed, the egg would have 2/21 Egg Cycles.

Let's take that same trainer and egg. Trainer A commands her Pokemon to use Tackle~Tackle. The egg would now have 8/21 Egg Cycles, assuming all of the Tackles hit. If one of the four Tackles miss, the egg would have 6/21 Egg Cycles. If two of the four Tackles missed, the egg would have 4/21 Egg Cycles.

Remember, commands are fine for hatching an egg no matter if they are in the Battles or the Safari Zone. But, commands in the Safari Zone only count if they are battle commands. 'Gyarados, Aqua Tail on that Relicanth' would count, but not 'Check out the rustling bush'.

Registering Hatched Pokemon
Once you have accumulated enough commands to hatch your egg, you may post the links to the Referee's posts in a Hatching thread. An Offical/Moderator would approve the hatching if all of the links were valid, or disapprove the hatching if one of the command posts wasn't valid. If approved, the Mod/Offical would tell you what Pokemon it hatched into, the gender of that Pokemon and if it's shiny or not.

How to make a command post valid
Battlers
If you make a command post while you have an egg in your possesion, you must post how many Egg Cycles the Pokemon has before your Pokemon uses the actions in your post.

Referees/Rangers
If a trainer you are posting a round for owns a Pokemon egg, you must post how many Egg Cycles the Pokemon has at the end of your post.

Extra Egg Cycles
If each command counts for two Egg Cycles, what will happen if the Egg Cycle is overpassed? For example, Trainer A has a Charmander egg with 20/21 Egg Cycles. Trainer A commands two Tackles, and they both hit. The Egg now has 22/21 Egg Cycles. The extra Egg Cycle could be distributed onto the next egg Trainer A obtains.
So, that's my idea for eggs in the ASBL. I think I've mentioned every thing that needs to be mentioned. So, opinions, ASB Mods/ Officals?

EDIT: A convienient list of Pokemon and their egg cycles. (Bulbapedia)

Oh. Guess that's OK, then.

My suggestion is lowering Magikarp's price in the Adoption Center. It's Ł1 less than Dratini, which is a very useful, rare and powerful Pokemon, but Magikarp's an almost-useless, weak and common fish! Can someone please explain the logic behind this to me?

*throws Paperfairy under the bus*
The prices are based off of a Pokemon's final evolutions' (in this case, Gyrados) stats. So since Gyrados is STAT BOSS, Magikarp is rather expensive ^_^;

And for the record, Gyarados is almost, in every way, better than Dragonite - perhaps Magikarp's price should be *raised*? :P

I'd like to suggest a battler's league table, sort of like there was in the old ASB. I'm currently working out categories and things like that but I'll wait until I hear other people's thoughts about it before I start to lay out anything formal.

I don't see a problem with it - I'm too lazy to do such a thing, but if you set it up and keep upkeep every week, I'm sure we could pay you... or something.

Okay, here's the draft form for the thread. I'll leave it here for you to look over and criticize. Also, it might look better with a banner so there could be a competition to find one.


The ASB Battler’s League
Here at the Battler's league, we keep a record of each trainer, their wins and their losses. This data is used to score each trainer with a points total, which is stored in a chart. In this way, the best trainers in the ASB can be found easily and may even be rewarded for their skill.

The Rules
You are added to the list once you have completed 1 battle
Ties are broken based on how many pokémon each player has defeated minus the number of pokémon they have lost.
>If there is still a tie then the winner will be the one with the least completed battles.

The Points System
You gain 4 points if you win a Gym battle as the Challenger
You gain 3 points if you win an ordinary battle
You gain 2 points if you draw in a battle
You gain 2 points if you win a Gym battle as the Leader
You gain 0 points if you lose a battle
You gain 1 point if you win a battle by disqualification
You lose 1 point if you lose a battle by disqualification

All Time
[Link to spreadsheet]

This Month
[Link to spreadsheet]

Hall of Fame
Will be added

Prizes
Whenever a new leader in points is crowned, one of the following prizes is chosen at random:

- 10% discount on all Downtown threads (does not stack with other discounts)
- +3 dollars at the end of every battle, regardless of result
- Shinification of one Pokémon (only valid once per account, if they get this again, then just roll again)
- 1 Free Safari Run

Prizes
(Note: This section is totally flexible and is only a few rough ideas about what could be offered.)
The battler with the most points on the last day of the month will win a baby/basic pokémon of their choice.
Twice a year (the 6th of March and the birthday of the PE2KASB) there will be a special prize giving. Prizes for these will be revealed closer to the events and will be given out based on the “All Time” results.
Why don't Gym Battles count?
