Direct all and any questions you may have about any section of the ASB here. You'd like to go through the ASB Handbook first though, before you ask any questions. As soon as possible, a member of the Staff or another player will answer your question.

Nicknames are mandatory when registering pokemon, or any other method of obtaining pokemon, correct? I also assume if that is correct, they cannot be nicknamed the pokemon they are.

EX: I can't nickname Sneasel, Sneasel.

Nicknames are not mandatory and they can be whatever you like.

Is there a backlog of old ref tests that can be opened so users can practice their skills in a variety of different situations and improve their skills? If not, can an alternate ref test be posted weekly for users who like writing rounds?

As of now, there ARE no old ref tests, simply because there is only one for this new system. I'll be happy to keep a backlog though once tested get rotated out.

As for a variety of situations, every ref test aims to hit on most, if not all of the following points:
- Stat Changes
- Special Moves (Substitute, Curse)
- Calculating Damage
- Calculating Speed
- Conditionals

Not sure if I understand what you're looking for with that next question. If you simply want to write rounds, I suppose you could look at the Ranger Test, but again, you can't take it until you pass the Ref test.

For the next few weeks, the ref tests will rotate out every week or so (the next one will most likely be posted on the 10th), but their frequency will be adjusted based on need for refs (the more we need them, the more frequent the rotation).

Lol, ok... So how do I figure out the moves for pokemon? Is it similar to the URPG where they are considerd to be lvl 100 and have all the level up moves?

Question 1: I have a Bunery as a Pokemon with Run away since klutz can't be used. Is run away going to help me any in battle? lol. And Ill assume I can change its ability once it becomes Lopunny to Cute Charm?

Question 2: Is our Pokemon's stats, without vitamins and such the same as the base stats of the Pokemon?

Your answers lie in the Compendium.

And yes, your Lopunny can have Cute Charm.

I have questions about Damage Caps.

Are they per turn or move?
For example, the damage cap for Battle A is 50. Pokemon A uses Move A on Pokemon B, dealing 49 damage. Pokemon A uses the same move again, dealing another 49 damage. Is that allowed?

Also, are you allowed to deal the damage stated in the Damage Cap?
For example, the damage cap for Battle A is 50. Pokemon A uses Move A on Pokemon B, dealing 50 damage. Is that allowed?

Finally, what happens if you deal more damage than the damage cap?
For example, the damage cap for Battle A is 50. Pokemon A uses Move A on Pokemon B, dealing 51 damage. What happens now?

Also, are you allowed to re-nickanme Pokemon? If so, how do you do it?

What is the "average" category for?

And when is the first battle? I wanted to watch one or two to get a better idea.

From the how to battle thread:
Quote:
This specifies how much damage, at most, can be done to a Pokemon in one round.
So, in the case of 50, a Pokémon can take no more than 50 damage per round. It's up to the ref how this is handled.

Average category is simply the average of the stats. More for my purposes than yours.

First battles... have already begun. In the Battles board.

When it says in the Compendium to take into account whether the Pokemon is airborne, underwater, in fog, etc, what does it mean?

EDIT: Oh, and sorry for the brainfart, but we CAN layer major statuses, correct?

Basically means use common sense on whether certain moves hit or miss. For instance, Magnezone naturally floats, and would thus be considered Airborne. So even though it doesn't have Levitate as an ability, it's not going to be affected by Earthquake, obviously. Unlike if it had Levitate, though, a move like Earth Power can still hit.

Of course. Maximum of two.
