    Default 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.

    Rules


    • 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 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
    Ability: Sheer Force (it was originally Rivalry)
    Knight of Time

    I'd like to get approved three Pokemon I got from The Giveaway HERE and HERE.

    Einsönne (Female Golisopod) Emergency Exit
    Puff (Male Drampa) Berserk
    Taivaanpala (Minior) Shields Down
    You wanna see some awesome signature? Well, you'll have to wait a day or two, or a year or two!?

    Not that it matters now but do to the Giveaway here I received five AP

    Snowy female Alolan Vulpix Snow Warning

    Lord Dome Male Kabuto Battle Armor
    Buzzy Beetle Male Anorith Battle Armor
    Chomper Male Tyrunt Strong Jaw
    Littlefoot Male Amaura Refrigerate

    And if they are approved that means my fossil collection is completes, I should note however that originally I was plotting to get a Type:Null that was until I realized it was one one the pokemon we couldn't get, I figured since the Fossil; Polmon were in the Alola Dex well in Ultra Sun and Ultra moon there should not be much of an issue with me getting the four I was missing.

    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

    Squirtle| Lenonardo |Male | Torrent
    Pichu| Sparkman|Male| Static
    Burmy| Mothman| Male| Shed Skin

    Side note I'll be reviewing my battles to see which of my Pokemon can evolve under the new rules now that I don't need points to evolve them. I know that if my bunny gets approved that means after three days Mothman will evolve so i'll just put it here for now.

    Mothim | Mothman| Male| Swarm

    By the way I can't recall but was my capturing an Unown ever approved or was it denied? 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.
