What is the Daily Raffle?

The Daily Raffle is a reward for logging in once a day. Users that login more often get better rewards. The rewards are usually items and in-game coins.

How do I add/remove Friends?

You can go to their profile via Profile → Search Users → Enter the username. When the profile appears, Click on +Friend or -Friend whichever may apply.

You will also find a list of friends under Profile → Friends & Blocklist.

What do the points mean?

Points are meant to show your relative progress in the game.

The points are calculated using various factors such as your total experience, average experience, unique pokemon, battle wins, age of pokemon, trainer challenge score etc. There are bonuses for having good quality quick trades, and penalties for receiving an account warning in the past 30 days.

Here 'age of pokemon' is an approximation of how long ago most of the pokemon in an account were caught. Having more recently caught pokemon in the account is beneficial here.

How do I get more in-game Coins?

The simplest way to obtain more in-game Coins is by battling. Gym battles tend to pay higher. It is also possible to win Coins in the Daily Raffle by logging in every day. You can also sell any spare items at the pokemart for 40% of its cost.

Someone contacted me saying they were staff of DelugeRPG and want my password or want me to change my email

DelugeRPG only has one admin and he does not need your password or any other info to access your account. All such messages can be assumed to be a scam.

I forgot my password! What can I do?

If you have set a recovery email in your profile, you can go to the Login Page and click on Forgot Password. It is not possible to recover an account if you do not set an email on it.

How do I delete my account?

Accounts cannot be deleted by yourself. You may simply stop logging in and the account will eventually be deleted. (We do not store any personal data. If you have set an email, you may set it to an empty one)

I did not log into my account for a long time, and now I cannot find it?

We delete accounts if they have not been accessed for longer than 15 months. Such accounts cannot be recovered. We do this because we cannot afford to store millions of abandoned accounts and their pokemon.

Please log in before that period to ensure that your account stays active.

Note: Banned accounts and accounts that have not progressed past the starter selection process may be deleted sooner.

Where is the Pokemon Center? How do I heal a pokemon after battle?

There is no Pokemon Center in this game. All your pokemon are automatically healed after each battle.

I evolved my [pokemon] and now its not in my pokedex!

Only the pokemon you currently have in your account are shown in the pokedex. So, say you want to have all the three stages of Squirtle in your pokedex, you will have to obtain 3 squirtles and then evolve two of them to Wartortle and Blastoise. This is different from the video games since all pokemon are available on DelugeRPG and they are pretty easy to catch.

How do you switch pokemon in your team with a Pokemon in your Pokemon box?

Click on the Change Team link under the Pokemon dropdown in the navigation bar. Once there you can change your team by dragging a Pokemon from your Pokemon box from below, to your team.

In case you have javascript disabled, go to Your Team and click replace in the spot where you want to put the new pokemon.

Where do I buy items?

You may purchase Items from the PokeMart which is under the Profile link on the menubar.

Where do I buy evolutionary items?

Some Pokemon need evolutionary items to evolve. These items are automatically purchased at the time of evolutions. If you are very low on Coins, these will be made available for free.

Can I buy the Pokemon I want?

Nope. We do not sell anything on this website for real cash. We also do not accept donations. All accounts on the website are created equal and all pokemon are obtainable at the same rates on all accounts.

Can I nickname my Pokemon?

Yes. Go to the Your Pokemon page, and hover your mouse pointer over the pokemon's name. You should now see a icon next to it. Click it and Enter the nickname. On mobile, you may simply click the name.

At this time Nicknames of pokemon are only visible to their trainers. And Nicknames are erased when a pokemon is traded.

What are the +Atk, +Def and +Spe next to my Pokemon?

Pokemon with and will have better attack and defense respectively in battles. This will also stack up with any type boosts they may have. pokes will attack before any non pokemon in battle.

How can I catch Pokemon that have these +Atk, +Def and +Spe stats?

Nothing you can do will have any effect on what stats your pokemon gets.

How do I catch Legendary or Mythical Pokemon?

Once you beat the gyms and elite four of a particular region, you can find legends of that region randomly appearing on all maps. Beat all gyms,elite four and dojos to unlock all Legendary and Mythical Pokemon. Do note that they are pretty rare when compared to normal pokemon, so they will not appear all the time.

Legendary and Mythical Pokemon tend to have slightly higher attack and defense in battle.

Not sure which pokemon is a Legendary or Mythical? Check the Pokedex pages for Legendary and Mythical Pokemon

What about Mega Evolutions?

Mega evolutions will have to be evolved from their base forme. The option is available once the pokemon is at level 100.

Mega evolutions also tend to have slightly higher attack and defense in battle.

Find out which pokemon have Mega evolution in the Mega Pokedex

How do I get G-Max Pokemon?

To G-Max evolve a pokemon, you need to finish the G-Max Challenge with that pokemon in your Team.

More details can be found on the G-Max Challenge page..

G-Max Pokemon also tend to have slightly higher attack and defense in battle.

Note that these boosts to attack and defense do not stack up with each other. Meaning a Mega evolution of a Legendary pokemon will not get the boost twice.

What are unique pokemon?

This is the number of different pokemon you have. For example, two shiny totodiles will count as one unique pokemon, whereas, one shiny cyndaquil and one ghostly cyndaquil are two unique pokemon.

What is the rarest pokemon?

There is no one particular pokemon that is the rarest. Legendary pokemon and special pokemon (metallic,dark etc) are generally rarer than normal pokemon. So, shiny lugia is as rare as a shiny kyogre, but rarer than a normal lugia or a ghostly abra.

How much is [pokemon name] worth?

If you're trading, the values are decided by the two parties involved in the trade. Don't let others tell you theres a set value for every pokemon.

Where is [pokemon name] found?

All Pokemon appear randomly on the maps. However, some Pokemon only appear on certain tiles. e.g water pokemon will appear in the water.

You can check the Pokedex to check where a particular pokemon is commonly found.

What are formes?

Formes are variants of pokemon that are not considered a separate pokemon by our pokedex. These may include regional/seasonal variants of pokemon or pokemon that have gender differences in their sprites.
An Alolan Vulpix is a Forme of Vulpix. Catching either one will mark Vulpix in the Pokedex. You may however catch both if you wish to.

How do I get the different Pokemon formes?

Pokemon formes that appear on the maps are marked with the symbol. You cannot influence which specific forme of that pokemon appears. If a pokemon that appears with the symbol, looks the same as the normal forme, it is possible that it evolves into a different forme.

The Vivillon evolution tree is a special case. The forme/pattern of vivillon you get depends on when the Vivillon or its pre-evolution was caught. The forme available in the maps changes every hour. So all Scatterbugs/Spewpas/Vivillons caught during that hour will have the same pattern. The patterns also change day by day, so the pattern available today between 5 and 6pm won't be the same as the ones that appear tomorrow during the same time period.

Can I battle my friends and how do I do it? (called live/online battle/PvP in most games)

Yes. Select Live Battle from under the Battle dropdown. It requires that your friend has enabled live battle on their profile.

To Enable Live Battle, visit Your Profile and under the Preferences section, tick the Allow other users to challenge me to a Live Battle option and Save.

Can I battle other people when they are not online?

You can battle people who aren't online by going to the Battle dropdown and selecting Computer Battle. However, their Pokemon will be computer controlled.

What is Inverse Battle?

During an Inverse Battle, type matchups are reversed. Any type that would be resistant or immune to another type is now weak to that type instead; also, any type that would be weak to another type is now resistant to that type instead. See Bulbapedia for more info.

See Inverse Typechart for a clearler understanding.

Do however note that pokemon with the Negative Class will have inverse matchup during regular battles and the normal matchup during an inverse battle.

See Pokemon Classes to see what abilities each class has.

Which type of attack are the best?

No one particular type of attack is best for all situations. An attack's strength also depends on the type of pokemon the opponent is, and also if the type of attack matches the type of pokemon that is using it. This means a Fire pokemon would do more damage using a fire attack than a normal pokemon using a fire attack. The attack would do even more damage if the opponent was weak to that particular type.

See Type Chart to see what types are weak to/strong against each type.

I can't seem to find [attack name] on DelugeRPG. When is it going to be added?

Only attacks that do physical damage and cause status ailments have been added to DelugeRPG. It is unlikely that the attacks that have to do with detailed pokemon data or take multiple turns or depend on the weather etc., would be added.

Why are some attacks so expensive?

Attacks that are not normally learnt by your pokemon or do not share a type with your pokemon are much more expensive. If you want an attack that is unusual for your Pokemon, it would cost more to teach them that attack that it would if the attack was native to it.
