Q. How can I evolve my Pokémon?
By Level: if your Pokémon evolves by level go to Setup Team and look at your Captured Pokémon list. Click on the Pokémon you want to evolve and if there's an evolution available you can click over the "Evolve" link.
By Items (i.e. Water Stone): if your Pokémon evolves by any item like stones, first be sure to have one of this item on your items list, then go to Setup Team and look at your Captured Pokémon list. Click over the Pokémon you want to attach the item and search for the "Attach" link. When you're done, click over this Pokémon again and search for the new "Evolve" link.
By Trade: if you want to evolve your Pokémon by trade, you will need to trade your Pokémon and their will evolve automatically.
Keep in mind that you can check what do you need to do to evolve your Pokémon (if is there an evolution available) looking at the PokéDex.
A. Go to the shop and buy the stone for your Pokemon (i.e: for Alakazam, the stone is Alakazite, for your Mewtwo you can buy both Mewtwonite X and Y). YOU ONLY NEED ONE STONE! When you're on a battle, send your Pokemon to the arena and click on Items, then search for the right stone and voilà! your Mega Pokemon is ready for the battle!
Q. How to Mega Evolve other Pokemon? (e.g. Mega Rayquaza)
A. Mega Rayquaza: to Mega Evolve Rayquaza, you have to teach 'Dragon Ascent' first, using the Move Tutor (learn how to find the Move Tutor). Once you do that, you have to use this attack on your Rayquaza at least once on any battle and your Pokemon will Mega Evolve automatically.
Q. Why it's so hard to raise levels of some of my Pokémon?
Some time ago we had a issue with the Level algorithm and some of you noted that their Pokémon raised up one level every one battle.
Although your Pokémon were getting more levels that they deserve, their experience remains in normal values, so now you need to get lots of experience to raise another level.
Please note that this is not happening with all new Pokémon. If you signed up from May 1st 2008 you're not having this problem.
If you want to level up your Pokemon level easily you can buy Rare Candies at the PokeShop.
You can use Rare Candies in two ways. You can use these candies either in a battle or when you're setting up your team.
If you want to use a Rare Candy on a battle, send the Pokemon to the battle and open your items list. Click on Rare Candy to raise one level of your Pokemon.
If otherwise you'd like to use them over a specific Pokemon of your list, go to 'View all my Pokémon / Setup my Battle Team' in your Member Panel, then go to your whole Pokemon List and click over the Pokemon you want to attach an item. Select Rare Candy and you're done!
Please note that when you raise a level, your Pokemon could learn new attacks. If so, you will see any new attack after you use your Pokemon for a battle.
Q. How my experience is calculated?
Experience is adjusted based on the following criteria:
- Number of Badges obtained
- Number of Goals completed
- Number of rooms owned (up to 5)
- IndigoCoins quantity (up to 10M)
- Unique Pokemon number
- Battles wins/loses
- Log in frequency
Please note: some of these points are MUCH more important than others. We may adjust the weight of each one of these items on the final number to make the ranking more fair for all players.
Q. Are the Alola forms available?
A. Alola forms are available on UnovaRPG! These Pokemon appear randomly on maps, and you have to catch them with their Alola form by default to keep them. To find them easily we suggest you to use the Pokemon Locator after you log in.
Q. How to increase my score on Pokemon Online Battles?
Do you want to be the Champion of UnovaRPG Pokemon Game? You can battle on our Online Battles Championship against other real trainers. Keep in mind to increase your score:
- Your rival must have a validated account (with a verified email address). If not we won't count your battle on your score.
- If you end a battle against the same rival up to two minutes after the previous one, it won't be counted.
- Up to three wins against the same rival per tournament is counted.
- Lost battles may reduce your score in some cases. Also, you may get higher score after a particular battle (for example, if you won against a powerful rival trainer).
- Every time you leave three battles (consecutive or non consecutive) without finish them your score will be reduced.
Important: any kind of manipulation to artificially increase your score WON'T be tolerated, and we may remove all your score and / or ban you from Pokemon Online Battles.
A. From July 21, 2016, and due to a lot of requests and complaints, we have changed the way your trainer's experience is calculated. We have drastically reduced the importance of the 'account age' factor. So new accounts will have more opportunities to climb up the rankings faster. So you may note that your experience has been reduced the next time you log in, but your ranking position should be similar (since all trainers will experience a small exp number).
