Re: FB News

A little record of some changes made to the rules.


Lanette's PC
PC Access (Total of 3 PC Slots / Overall total of 9 Team Positions)
- Starter at Lv.50 + 5 Pokémon (levels irrelevant)
- Your Starter Pokémon needs to be at Lv.50 and you will need an additional 5 Pokémon of any level on your team.
- If any Pokémon are traded or released after gaining your PC, no slots are lost.

Lanette's Upgrade (Total of 6 PC Slots / Overall total of 12 Team Positions)
- Starter + 2 Pokémon at Lv.50.
- Your Starter Pokémon and at least two other Pokémon on your team need to be at Lv.50.
- If any of the Lv.50 Pokémon you own are traded or released after gaining Lanette's Upgrade, no PC Slots are lost.

Elite Upgrade (+1 PC Slot for each Lv.100 owned)
- No change in the rules.
- For each Lv.100 Pokémon you own, you will receive 1 additional PC Slot (1 Lv.100 = 7 PC Slots = Total Team Space of 13; 2 Lv.100's = 8 PC Slots = Total Team Space of 14; etc.)
- If one of your Lv.100 Pokémon are traded or released, you WILL lose the extra PC Slot it gave you.


Training Centre
For many years, TMs were rare to come by in FB which meant the move Dig was added to the Training Centre as an HM.
With the addition of the Coins for Prizes thread and Jirachi's Casino which makes TM purchasing much easier, Dig has now been removed from the Training Centre.
If you wish to teach your Pokémon the move Dig, you will need to purchase the TM from the Coins for Prizes thread and teach it to your Pokémon in the Training Centre as you would any other TM.


Rules
Rules have been updated. While not much has changed, there are one or two points of interest that may concern you so please be sure to skim through them.


Recoloring
Recoloring was discussed at length and all decisions finalized. Unfortunately all records were lost when the old UPN went off air so we have no access to them at this point in time. Discussion will need to be renewed and everything gone over in full detail again to ensure we haven't missed anything, so please be patient.


Warning System
Due to a select few members showing a great amount of disrespect for other members, a new Warning System has been introduced. Rudeness, and in some cases, outright abuse, will no longer be tolerated. If any Mod is witness to any case warranting a warning point, the member in question will be warned via PM.

If you receive three warnings you will be banned from FB for three months.
If you return and cause any kind of trouble again you will be permanently banned from FB.

All members are encouraged to PM us links to behaviour you find concerning and your identities will remain anonymous. Harassment via PM and email will also be taken into account, so be sure to forward us any messages you find threatening so that we can see for ourselves whether the member in question merits a warning point for their behaviour.

Burmy News

The Recent talk about Castform in the FAQ has made us reconsider the way we deal with Burmy, so from now on every Bumy that hatches is Plant cloaked, and they will go with how they are in the games depending on which environment they are in, so if you alredy have a Burmy you can change it to a normal Burmy and go from there.

Re: FB News

Congratulations are in order for Arc_Angel, who is our newest FB Mod. Her hard work and dedication since becoming an updator has not gone unnoticed, and the fact that she's single-handedly kept our newest members going over the past two months demonstrates the degree to which she's willing to help when problems arise.

Arc has been modded across all three FB forums, UPN, Serebii, and Bulbagarden, and is an excellent addition to the team.

Welcome aboard Stace, this has been a long time coming so I hope you enjoy your new role.

Pokémon Platinum

Platinum additions are being officially released into FB as of tomorrow (Monday, December 1).

All MT attacks that can be learned by your Pokémon are available in the Move Tutor.

Evolutions Cards have been created for Rotom, and are on sale in Coins for Prizes for 20,000 coins each.


They are a combination of HOLD and EVOLUTION item, so your Rotom can evolve into any of the evolutions available so long as it's holding the respective card (Fridge for Frost/Ice, Lawnmower for Cut/Grass, Fan for Spin/Flying, Washing Machine for Wash/Water, or Oven for Heat/Fire), and will revert to its original form when the card is taken away.

You can purchase one of them or all of them but when the card is given to Rotom (which should be RP'd into your reply), any other hold/booster item it has will be null and void as it can only hold one item at a time.

Sprites are also available, and although they'll rarely be needed they're still nice little addition to have.

Appliances


Normal


Shiny


The appliances are even available for your base if you want them, but they DO NOT evolve your Pokémon. Only the Evolution Cards can do that.


Platinum has arrived! W00t!

Heart Gold/Soul Silver

With the upcoming games approching fast we thought why not gewt ahead of the game and from this moment on, all new MT/Egg Moves are now teachable in the Move Tutor.

Also with that, some items are having a revamp and now that the Pokeballs have actual sprites, all the G/S ball sprites should auto change when you view them, for refrence herre they all are:


So, there we are, all HG/SS things are active, we may implament some new things, i've got sprites for the new key items (Berry Planter, item finder, new key items etc etc)

Just a note for everyone, if you've got Vb4 links saved and posted in any coin exchange/bank (Just the ones before the next update) please edit all of them as they won't work.

Lanette's PC Elite Upgrade

Since the removal of the Elite System there has been a fair amount of controversy surrounding the decision despite it also being a move welcomed by many. Whether it stayed or not didn't really bother us one way or another as we liked the Elite System, so after years of members asking for the removal of PC restrictions we finally did it and have let it run its course for a fair amount of time to see how the changes have panned out. We've recently been reviewing some of these changes and have decided to reinstate the Elite System, but with some alterations.

Previously you needed to have your Starter at Lv.50 with another 5 Pokémon on your team before you could unlock the PC which allowed you to hold up to 12 Pokémon. After this the Elite System kicked in, giving you an additional slot for each Lv.100 Pokémon on your team. Since then many members have added multiple Pokémon to their teams so returning the Elite System with the same stipulations wouldn't be fair to them so we're happy to alter the PC rules to accommodate for them.

From now on you have automatic access to the PC as soon as you become an FB member, there are no stipulations in place as to how many Pokémon you need on your team in order to access it, or what level those Pokémon need to be. However, as soon you have 50 Pokémon on your team you cannot add more unless you have Elite slots available to you. Each Lv.100 Pokémon you have will allow you one Elite Slot.

For example:
You have 56 Pokémon and 16 of those are Lv.100.
16 Lv.100 Pokémon gives you 16 Elite Slots.
50 + 16 = 66 which means you can hold up to 66 Pokémon on your current team so still have room to add another 10 Pokémon.

This still allows members to add a nice variety of Pokémon to their teams without being forced to raise them too quickly while still allowing those who feel they need some incentive to raise them the ability to do so.

As we realise there may be one or two people who have already surpassed this limit we're happy to give until the end of June 2014 for alternative arrangements to be made for any extra Pokémon they have, whether that may be to trade them away, release them, or put them up for adoption.

The new Elite PC System will go into effect on 1st July 2014. We hope this move helps to satisfy everyone, whether you're in favour of restrictions or unlimited slots as this helps to give a little of both. The Elite Upgrade is, after all, an unlimited system, it just takes a lot longer to reach your eventual goal.

I am looking to organize our Trainer Battles Area and our TCG Area a little tiny bit by having a list of current Refs for both areas as well as a list of battles they are currently reffing to make it easier for everyone to know how busy they are and who to contact if you want to partake in one of these battles. In that regard I would like to know who out there is a Ref for each area and plans to continue being one. Also if anyone is interested in becoming a Ref for either area let me know so I can get you what you need to become one.Please send me a PM if this pertains to you.

Thanks!

Handover

After some discussion Arnold, Arc_Angel, and myself have decided to step down from our roles as Fizzy Bubbles Moderators here at UPN. Our time here has certainly been memorable. We've had many good experiences through the years, met many awesome people, and had several hair-raising adventures.

We will be staying on over at Serebii and Bulbagarden however, for a little while at least, and continue working there. We still feel we are not quite finished yet and are looking forward to starting over. We will reboot and rename our version of the RPG, leaving you all free to remake this version into whatever you want it to be. As the Serebii zones were created for that branch and work nicely into our reboot we will keep those but you're welcome to redesign them for your RPG if you like. We will not suggest any members to replace us here, instead leaving it to the community to vote in your own leaders.

As all existing members joined the Fizzy Bubbles that exists today we will transfer all existing member accounts here to UPN. Serebii and Bulbagarden home boarders will become UPN home boarders unless they specifically request to remain where they are. We will point current registration applications to UPN, only taking applications from those who apply after the split. In the coming week we will ensure all shops are given final updates with the financial balances of all home boarders transferred to the corresponding UPN shops. We will then archive our threads and leave you to create your own.

If there is anything you need from us before we leave please let us know.

FB will remain in our hearts always xx
