    • Please note: Consenting to a "bad deal" is not a scam, even if the pricing is absurd.

    • Selling or giving away all of your Pokémon, items, and/or currencies at in response to leaving the server or a recent server / staff / player decision will be halted. We ask that if you don't want to play the game, please do not distribute all of your in-game items in case you ever want to come back.

    • Random or empty claims are subject to removal. Open a support ticket in the Discord or reach out to a staff member in-game for assistance.
    • Always try to resolve claim conflicts with the other player first. If an agreement can't be made, open a support ticket.

    • In the event that you get evicted from a subclaim without notice, you will have the right to claim the items that you have interacted with in said subclaim.
    • A build is considered abandoned if:
      • it is unclaimed and staff cannot find who built it.
      • the player(s) who built it/reside in it have not been online for one year.
      • Note: in a city with multiple players, if the original owner has not been online for one year, another member may file to claim ownership as long as they have the approval of all other members of that city. Please open a support ticket for assistance.
  • Catching Pokémon
    • Pokémon are fair game in both private and public areas or farms unless there are rules already set in place in a private farm.
      • If a legendary pokémon spawns in the wilderness near a player or group of players, that player (or players) has claim to the legendary. Anyone who arrives after the legendary spawns is not allowed to claim or steal it under any circumstances.
    • If a farm owner doesn't want you catching pokémon in their space, you must leave. This also applies if they are offline. Please be respectful to all players and their space!
  • Auto-Farming & AFK Farming
    • Auto-Farming is allowed as long as:
      • it doesn't abuse any bugs or glitches.
      • it doesn't cause severe server lag.
    • AFK farming is allowed as long as no macros are used to achieve it.
    • Auto-fishing is NOT allowed.
    • Anti-AFK machines, devices, and mechanics are NOT allowed.
  • Events & Tournaments
    • Please respect all event holders (players and staff).
    • Do not go out of bounds.
    • Any loopholes that are attempted to bypass or gain a significant advantage will result in immediate disqualification and punishment.
    • Any actions in an attempt to stall or delay an event or tournament is prohibited and will result in a punishment.
    • Multiboxing in events or tournaments is strictly prohibited. Multiboxing is the act of using more than one account at the same time.
      • Example: Joining a tournament with your main and alt account at the same time to get it to start, or playing the tournament with both accounts at the same time.
      • Example: Doing runs in the Battle Tower on your main and your alt to get extra BP.
  • Alt Accounts
    • You are only allowed ONE alt on the server. This is to prevent players from gaining too much of an advantage over others.
    • You are NOT allowed to use your alt to perform an action twice for extra rewards to send to your main. Doing so will result in a punishment and removal of items and/or currency.
      • Winning a tournament and then giving your winning team to another player to win the next tournament and give you the rewards is considered a loophole around alt abusing, as well as the tournament cooldown, and will not be tolerated.
  • No Loan Sharking
    • Loan sharking is the practice of loaning out money with the expectation that the loan will be paid back with interest within a specified amount of time. The player giving the loan sets their own terms for how much is loaned, what the interest will be, and how long the other player has to pay back the loan.
    • We do not allow this practice on our server as it often opens people up to being scammed, which creates more work for the staff and breeds a toxic community.
  • No Despawn Farms
    • Any farm that forces pokémon to despawn unnaturally and at a faster rate of speed than a normal despawn is prohibited. These farms undermine the intended gameplay of the server when it comes to catching pokémon.
    • Examples of a despawn farm include (but are not limited to):
      • Fence Farms
      • Piston or Redstone Farms
