What are PokéPoints & How do I spend them?

Let's answer both of that for you!


What are PokéPoints?


Simply put, PokéPoints are the currency of Lake Valor. Obviously, it isn't related to real life money whatsoever, and it can only be used on Lake Valor. The amount you have will appear underneath all of your posts to both yourself and all other members. When you very first sign up, you start with zero, but never fear! Earning PokéPoints is quite easy, and fun, too!


How can I earn PokéPoints?


Posting/Creating topics:
Just posting around the forums and creating topics will earn you PokéPoints. This is the most simple way to earn them.


Participating in events or contests:
Another very common (and arguably the most fun!) way to earn PokéPoints is to participate in one of LV's many events or contests. We host various events like these all the time, and more often than not, the prizes will be in the form of PokéPoints.


Most of our events happen in the Events forum.


Selling products:
For those who have something to offer, such as artwork or rare Pokémon, you can also sell those types of things for PokéPoints in Lake Valor's Market. It's up to you how many PokéPoints you want to charge for, but remember to read the rules of the subforum you're planning to sell in to make sure you're aware of any guidelines we have in place.


You can ask for PokéPoints donations here. Our community is quite generous so if you really need yourself some PokéPoints for whatever reason, don't be shy to ask here (as long as you meet the requirements, of course).


How many PokéPoints do I get for posting?
The amount of PokéPoints you earn from creating topics is 1.35 PokéPoints per topic, and the amount you earn from making posts is 0.65 PokéPoints per post. Note: You do NOT earn PokéPoints from making posts in areas where your post count does not increase. This includes the Game Corner and Spambox.


What can I spend PokéPoints on?


Once you've saved up some PokéPoints, there are two primary places you can use them!


Buy stuff in the Market:
That's right, LV's Market is for both selling and buying! Be sure to explore and see if there's anything you're interested in. If you're in need of a signature/avatar, or want to buy some sweet Pokémon, this is the place to be! It is the primary reason to save up your PokéPoints - a ton of the stuff in here is of high quality and certainly desirable.


Buy stuff in the LV Shop:
LV's official shop is the other primary place to spend your PokéPoints. Click Shop at the top of the menu. Here, you can purchase more site-related things like Adoptables, Name changes, Custom titles and more.
