    • Please do not private message staff on Discord when you need assistance. Open a support ticket in the PokéWild Discord or use the Support Chat channel.

    • Private messaging a staff member about a ticket you have opened will not get your ticket resolved any faster. You may ping a staff role ONCE in your ticket if it has not been answered within 24 hours.

    • Please be patient. We have a lot of tickets and we try to get to them as fast as we can. Remember, the staff are humans!

    • Note: You are still allowed to DM staff for general conversation, friendly banter, etc.

Game Rules

  • No Use of Blacklisted Modifications (includes but is not limited to the following):

    • Any mod is subject to staff approval and may be deemed blacklisted

    • Allowed: Optifine, Lunar Client, Badlion (Not Badlion+)

  • No Scamming

    • Scamming can be clarified by these descriptions:

      • Not properly following the conditions of the trade in an attempt to trick the other player.

      • Attempting to deceive a player for items, currency, or Pokémon by altering the original trade without the other player’s permission.

    • A buyer's failure to read/agree to the terms of a trade will not be considered a scam. HOWEVER:

      • If a battle wager is set and a player is unaware of how battle wagers work and does not know they agreed to a wager, this could be considered scamming and any money lost in the wager is subject to be confiscated and returned to that player.

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

  • No Gambling

    • Any form of gambling outside of features PokéWild provides is strictly prohibited. This is to protect players from games that may be rigged or unfair, as these are classified under our rule against scamming.

      • Examples: Any RNG mechanic that charges a fee for use (slot machine, raffle, etc)

    • Allowed: Gambling using the wager feature in the battle UI

  • IRL Deals

    • Allowed: You are allowed to purchase items off of the PokéWild store in exchange for in-game items or currency from another player.

    • Punishable: You are not allowed to sell Minecraft accounts, in-game items, currencies, or anything outside of the PokéWild server.

  • No Economy Harming

    • Affecting the economy with malicious intent will not be tolerated. This is to ensure that players who invest themselves in the in-game market do not have a tarnished experience due to another player's actions.

    • Selling all of your Pokémon at once 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 then please do not distribute all of your Pokémon at once.

    • Purposely handing out items or money in response to leaving the server will not be allowed. Once again, keep all items/money on you just in case you ever want to come back.

  • No Account Sharing

    • You, and you alone, are responsible for what happens on your account. If you share your account with another individual who receives a punishment, we will not remove or lessen the sentence.

  • No Lag Machines

    • Intentionally causing server lag will result in a ban.

    • Allowed: Redstone machines are allowed as long as they are a reasonable size and do not cause a large amount of lag for other players. If you are unsure, please ask a staff member.

  • No Inappropriate Builds

    • You are not allowed to build anything that would be considered 18+ or highly offensive.

  • No Griefing

    • You are not allowed to grief other players' builds or steal items, whether the build or storage block(s) is/are claimed or not. Punishments on unclaimed land are more lenient, but we encourage leaving all player-made structures alone.

  • No Duping Items

    • Duping items will result in an immediate ban/blacklist.

  • No Exploiting Bugs or Glitches

    • If you are caught exploiting a bug or glitch, you will be banned.

    • If you find a bug or glitch, please open a support ticket in the Discord to report it to the staff team. You will not be punished for reporting bugs/glitches.

  • Claim Rules

    • You are not allowed to claim-lock others, claim over their builds, or claim within a radius of their claims without permission (claim owners are granted around 240 blocks or 15 chunks leeway).

    • Claimed land that has player activities will not be removed unless you have proof of approval from the claim owner.

    • Random/empty claims are subject for removal. Reach out to a staff member or open a support ticket in the Discord for assistance.

    • Always try to resolve claim conflicts with the other player first. If an agreement can't be made, open a support ticket.

    • The claim owner has full rights on who is allowed in their claim. If you are asked to leave someone's claim and do not comply, you will be forcibly sent back to spawn and given a punishment.

    • If you /sethome in someone's claim without permission, it will be removed and you will receive a punishment.

    • 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/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.

    • Please note: auto-fishing is not allowed.

  • Events & Tournaments

    • Please respect all event holders (players or 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.

  • Alt Accounts

    • You are only allowed ONE alt on the server. This is to prevent players from gaining too much of an advantage on 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.

      • Example: Doing runs in the Battle Tower on your main and then your alt to get extra BP.

  • Staff Cooperation

    • In instances where a deal/trade has gone wrong, staff may need to intervene and recoup items/money from either party involved. Depending on the case, staff might need to forcibly remove items/money or they may ask a player to work with them on returning said items/money.

    • If you find yourself involved in such a case and a staff member reaches out to you, please cooperate with them. Refusing to do so may result in a punishment.

    • Do not intentionally obstruct a staff member or provide false information in such a case.

    • If you feel a decision made by staff is unjust, please open a support or appeal ticket in the Discord.

  • 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 Begging

    • Begging staff or other players for game items, Pokémon, game currency, or other is prohibited.
