    Wild Pokémon have started appearing!
    It's almost unbelievable but... wild Pokémon have actually started appearing around Lake Valor!

    It is said that budding trainers are able to catch, level up and even evolve these Pokémon. How exciting! Well, I'd expect you'd like more details, right? Well, let's get into them!

    HOW DO I FIND POKÉMON?

    By visiting threads and sections on LV, you're able to encounter wild Pokémon. The types of Pokémon vary, but it is said that right now you can only encounter Pokémon originally found in the Kanto Region. We suspect more will be coming very soon, however!

    Trainer Tips: You'll know you've encountered a wild Pokémon when this popup appears in the bottom left corner of your screen.

    From this screen, you can see whether it's in your collection and you have the option to catch it. However, to catch a Pokémon you'll need PokéBalls...

    HOW DO I CATCH POKÉMON?

    First, you'll need to head to the LV Shop. You can find it by clicking Shop from the navigation bar at the top of the site. Alternatively, encountering a Pokémon without any PokéBalls will give you the option to visit the Shop.

    From here, you'll need to visit the PokéBalls section of the Shop and then purchase PokéBalls with our virtual currency, PokéPoints. You can get PokéPoints by posting and replying to discussions around Lake Valor. Once you've stocked up on PokéBalls, catch your Pokémon by selecting your ball of choice!
    Trainer Tips: Different types of PokéBalls have different capture rates. Master Balls catch Pokémon without fail, whereas other times they can break free!
    Once capture is complete, you have the option to nickname your Pokémon.

    CAN I LEVEL UP & EVOLVE MY POKÉMON?

    Yes! Every Pokémon can be levelled up by posting and replying to discussions in any of LV's sections (except the Game Corner).

    Certain types of Pokémon can evolve too! If they evolve in the games, they evolve here. As it stands, all Pokémon evolve the same way - by levelling up. Levels they evolve at vary, but most are consistent to the games.

    Trainer Tips: To level up and evolve a Pokémon you MUST set it as your Buddy. You can do this by visiting your profile page (accessible from your homepage sidebar) and clicking on the Pokémon you want to level up and evolve.

    It will then appear on your homepage sidebar, at the bottom of your avatar and on your Trainer Card (accessible by clicking your username in discussion threads), the latter which other trainers can see.

    This way, you are able to track the progress of your Pokémon and see how many posts you need to level it up.


    THAT'S HELPFUL! ANYTHING ELSE?

    A few things you might want to know!

    - Certain Pokémon can only appear in certain sections. We won't tell you which! Find out for yourself.
    - Special Event Pokémon will be announced and will only be available for short periods of time at future announced dates.
    - Shiny Pokémon will likely start appearing in the near future, alongside more regions of Pokémon!
    - We heard you can even find special Alola only forms...

    Thanks for reading! We hope you'll head out there and encounter many Pokémon on your adventures at Lake Valor.

    If you're still confused about anything, ask a question below

    This is awesome and I am suuuper excited.

    Just encountered a glitch though:
    [​IMG]

    I was told Gloom was captured successfully and to input a nickname, then the 'Gloom broke free!' part showed up underneath and no matter how often I typed a nick and hit enter, nothing happened. No option to use another ball either, so I had to refresh and miss out. Hopefully it's not silliness on my end. Thank you for reading. :D

    e: nvm looks like it actually was captured. Just a text error then. Whew!

    I'm loving this, but I'm having a few issues so I'll post them here.
    1. My Zubat is named Birb when I called it Flap Flap (not really complaining, but a bit strange).
    2. My Charmander has no nickname when I called it Spice.

    I also found a bug.
    [​IMG]
    I only caught 1 Charmander, and named it Blaze. I ended up with 2 and one named Cinder. Also, it took 2 pokeballs as I bought 20 and ended up with 18 afterwards.
    Caught a Ekans, named it Slytherin, and it lacks a name now. I also have 18 pokeballs still, so I either misread '19' as 18 after getting the 2 Charmander or this is another bug.
    I only have 1 real attempt to catch Pokémon as after the first throw I never get anything other than failure.
    [​IMG]
    Here is another instance of me obtaining too many Pokémon. I only caught 1 Zubat, named Vlad, but got 3. Also my pokeballs went down from 17/18 to 11 after catching Vlad..?
    Caught a Nidoran (Female), named it Nida, and it lacks a name now. Caught a Alolan Diglett that I named Jenny, it lacks the name.

    My pokeballs diminished quickly. From what I saw originally, the amount only goes down if you actually catch a Pokémon (thus, by one), however I started to lose a lot of Pokeballs over time, and now have gone down to 0 even though I had 3 the last encounter (which I didn't manage to catch).

    Bug:
    If I don't catch a Pokémon in the first try(I haven't caught any after trying in about 10 mins), then I won't catch it at all, no matter how many pokeballs I use and after I refresh it says I didn't use any.


    EDIT:
    I'm also having the same name problem as others.

    I'm having the same naming problem, after I catch one Pokémon, it won't name the ones after it. Also, I'm having trouble with using PokeBalls after the first throw. If it says it broke free, I'll use a second one but it won't do anything and then it'll refresh later?

    Edit: I tried to name my Vulpix Cindy, and it wouldn't accept the nickname so I clicked the X and now it's called Chip. I suppose that name is fine too, but it would be cool if we could edit the nicknames!

    Edit 2: all my problems have been fixed! :D

    You hurt its feelings so it chose to ignore you XD

    But yeah, I have 1 or two Pokémon without nicknames because it wouldn't let me? But a few tried to not let me nickname but I just kept typing it and pressing enter and it eventually worked.

    Aside from the little naming issue is actually pretty fun just running around the site to see what you can find.

    It's weird that it must gives random nicknames like that at times.

    A question, do things automatically evolve upon reaching the right level? I ask, as I have no plans to evolve Perfection the Weedle

    All the bugs should be fixed now. If you find any more or any of them persist, please let us know.

    Nope! You evolve them manually through the Pokémon Collection tab on your profile. :)

    Honestly, this is one of my favorite additions to LV. I love the thrill of finding Pokémon on the site, and I wonder if this new system will be integrated into Valor Battle now!
