Common PU Questions: Your One Stop Source for Information!
« on: March 12, 2012, 04:17:25 pm »
Notice: Current as of October, 2012.

Hello new members of PU. You probably made an account for this sight, and are looking around the forums for information about the game, and other items, but find it troubling to navigate. Below is a list of questions, and answers, that should make the process of finding info a lot easier.

Game Related

Why hasn't the game been released.
-All the answeres as to why are located Here

How do I download the game?
-The game is still in development, so there is no download. A game takes time to develop, as there are a lot of aspects of it that needs done, like art work, storyboard, GUI, etc. We ask for your patience as we want to provide a good game, not a fast one.

When does the game release?
-There is no set date. You can follow the development on the front page to get an idea what is going on, but as of now, we have no idea when beta will be ready.

What will the system requirements be?
-The game will be functional on Windows, Linux and Mac.

Will we be able to catch legendary pokemon?
-No. If everyone were to have legendary pokemon, then the game would be less fun, since everyone would have a mewtwo, arceus, etc. Instead, legendary pokemon will be used as bosses for quests, and defeating them will give greater rewards in the game.

What region will we be in?
-The region is called Miryus, a large place created by the team. It will be a large region, with lots of things to do.

What will the starter pokemon be?
-Bulbasaur,Chikorita, Treeko, Turtwig, Snivy
-Squirtle, Totodile, Mudkip, Piplup, Oshawatt
-Charmander, Cyndaquil, Torchic, Chimchar, Tepig

-Only these pokemon will be the starters, nothing else.

Will there be any fakemon?
-No, there will not be any made up pokemon, or made up moves. Fakemon can tend to be made overpowered, and are also annoying since they need a lot of thought.

Forums Related

How to I start a new topic?
-Simply click on new topic. Be sure to place your topic in the right board, and make it readable to everyone. We do not want to sit and decipher "PU Roks sooooooooooooooo hardz lolololol." Also, think out what you want to post. Sometimes lengthy is better.

How to I modify my post?
-Click the wrench in your post to modify it. You can also click modify on your post as well. What you want to avoid is double posting, or posting right after you just posted on the same thread. Remember, the modify button is your friend.

How do I set a signature?
-Go to your profile settings, then click on forum profile. There is a box where you can set a signature. In that box, you can write anything you wish with the character limit.

-To put pics in your signature, just use the following code:

Code: [Select]
[img]Your image URL[/img]
Is there anything for us to do on the site?
-Yes, there are lots of things to do. If you draw or do pixel art, head to Art Work. If your write, head to Fanfiction & Writing. If you want to RP, head to Roleplay Corner. If you're just bored, head to In-Forum Games.

Is there anywhere I can meet and battle other trainers?
-Yes there is. We use PO to test some of the pokemon the balance team has redone. You can find more info at the Balance Testing Server. You can test out some of the pokemon currently balanced, and provide feedback on any pokemon you feel are overpowered, underpowered, or seems to be missing something.

What if I'm not sure my topic is posted?
-Use the search bar in the top right hand corner. This is another handy tool that will be your best friend after a while. It may seem confusing at first, but with a little practice, you can navigate this site with ease.

Well, there you have it, all your questions answered. If you feel as though a question has been missed, feel free to ask, and we will try to get back to you as soon as possible.

However, since nobody bothered to read that at all, this more recent and updated version was made in hopes that the title would be enough to draw new members here. Yet, the new members still do not bother to read this, or the Ultimate Answers Thread. It's sad but true.

...Makes too much sense sadly. They don't love us enough to stay for the community's amazing company? And Cortex, whatever he is?


My question is what is with the influx of new users that can't read big red letters, a shiny button, and/or other topics? When I was brand-new, I didn't even have use the search feature for that stuff, the FAQs was enough. <=soundslikeanoldtimer//bricked

IKR? Today I found two messages from some random noobs asking me where to download the game. It's like they dont pay any attention to the front page, or to Cortex's big, red, magical, candy shaped, button of wisdom. :/

Just a suggestion but wouldn't it be useful to put a more informative text in the download page instead of  'Nothing here yet...' just maybe some people will stop asking where to download the game.

Claiming that someone else's marriage is against your religion is like being angry at someone for eating a doughnut because you're on a diet.

I think they tried that, but new people would still fail to read it, just like they don't read this, the ultimate answer thread, or the many threads that ask for the download and have the same answer. This is a spoonfed generation indeed.
