View Full Version : ASB Approval Tower

The Approval Tower

Welcome to the Approval Tower: your first step in starting out in ASB! Please read the following rules carefully and don't be afraid to ask a Moderator if you are confused. Although we eat children, you shouldn't fear us.


You may start out with ONLY 4 pokémon (lowest level only: Charmander, Hoothoot, Spheal, Skorupi, etc.)

Two of your four starter pokémon must have the ability to evolve (Ex: Farfetch'd, Tauros, Cubone, Staryu).
There are a select set of rare pokémon that cannot be a part of your starting team. They include the following:

Legendary pokémon and Ultra Beasts of any kind, Omanyte, Kabuto, Aerodactyl, Dratini, Larvitar, Lileep, Anorith, Beldum, Bagon, Cranidos, Sheildon, Gible, Tirtouga, Archen, Deino, Tyrunt, Amarua, Goomy, Type: Null, or Jangmo-o.

To capture a pokémon, it will cost 2 points. You will only be able to capture basic pokémon, not including the following:

Legendary pokémon and Ultra Beasts of any kind, Omanyte, Kabuto, Aerodactyl, Dratini, Larvitar, Lileep, Anorith, Beldum, Bagon, Cranidos, Sheildon, Gible, Tirtouga, Archen, Deino, Tyrunt, Amarua, Goomy, Type: Null, or Jangmo-o.

Burmy, Caterpie, Weedle, and Wurmple only require 1 point to catch.

Once the catch is approved, you will not be able to change the gender or the ability of the pokémon in question!

To evolve a pokémon, they must either knock out one pokémon with 51% or more of their health remaining, or participate in two or more battles. You do not have to pay any points to do so.

To evolve a pokémon to its third form, the pokémon must participate in two or more battles.
Certain pokémon, however, will not require battle experience to evolve, because their movesets are so limiting. You will instead need to wait 3 full days after catching the pokémon to evolve them. These pokémon include:

Beldum, Burmy, Caterpie, Combee, Coscoon, Kakuna, Kricketot, Magikarp, Metapod, Silcoon, Tynamo, Weedle, and Wurmple.
In the case of Nincada's double evolution. If you want both evolutions you must participate in two battles.

If a forfeiting has been done on purpose and said battle is used for a battle experience/point gain link, it will be deemed null.
When you decide to evolve a pokémon, links from the battles need to be provided.
When you decide to evolve a pokémon, that pokémon cannot be participating in the Safari Zone, a contest, or any battles at the moment (ex: If I wanted to evolve my Charmander into a Charmeleon but he's involved in two battles, I cannot evolve him until he's done with both matches).
You can rename your pokémon at any time; there is no need to update the Tower whenever you do so.

Abilities, however, cannot be changed unless your pokémon is evolving or there is a specified event where this is allowed.
Genders cannot be changed whatsoever.

Pokémon native to Kanto can now be caught in their Alolan Forms. However, a Kanto native pokémon cannot evolve into its Alolan form if it has an Alolan variant (ex: If I have a Kanto Rattata, I cannot evolve them into an Alolan Ratticate or vice-versa).

That should give you a basic idea for now. Enjoy, have fun and don't hesitate to ask any questions!

Well, looks like I'm going to be the first "customer" here, so I'm going to spend the 5 AP I got here (http://www.pokemasters.net/forums/showthread.php?t=27500&p=616013&viewfull=1#post616013) on a couple of new Pokemon and an ability change for one I already have, without further ado:

Salandit (F)
Nickname: Medea
Ability: Corrosion

Comfey (F)
Nickname: Leilani
Ability: Triage

Nidoking (M)
Nickname: Lord Longhorn

Not that it matters now but do to the Giveaway here (https://www.pokemasters.net/forums/showthread.php?t=27500&p=618545&viewfull=1#post618545) I received five AP

Pichu| Sparkman|Male| Static
Bonsly| Goldmember|Male Rock Head
Happiny| Hygieia |Female| Serene Grace
Alolan Sandshrew |Slushberg| Male |Slush Rush
Alolan Vulpix|Snowy| Female| Snow Warning

Also apparently I have 5 points so lets see here I'll catch a Squirtle and a Pichu as well as a Burmy. Paid for here (https://www.pokemasters.net/forums/showthread.php?t=20130&p=627429&viewfull=1#post627429)

Squirtle| Leonardo |Male | Torrent
Burmy| Mothman| Male| Shed Skin
Roggenrola|Stonepillar Ruins|Male|Sturdy

Not that it really matters do to the general lack of activity around here, but I figured I would do a bit of updating in regard to my ASB team.

Edit Right now that we don't have to pay points for our Pokémon to evolve it's time for me to do just that.
