What is DelugeRPG?

DelugeRPG is an online game where you can catch pokemon, trade them and even battle them against other players.

Will my personal information be visible to other players?

Nope. We use your email only in case you forget your password and want to recover it. Only your username and in-game stats will be visible to other users.

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.

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.

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

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

How do I catch legendary 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 legendaries. Do note that legends are pretty rare when compared to normal pokemon, so they will not appear all the time.

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

Not sure which pokemon is a legendary? Check the Legends Pokedex

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.

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.

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

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.

Where do I purchase evolutionary items?

Some Pokemon need evolutionary items to evolve. On DelugeRPG, these evolutionary stones are free, you do not need to purchase them, they'll automatically be used at the time of evolution.

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.

What do the points mean?

The points are calculated from your total experience, average experience, unique pokemon and total battles won. They are the same points displayed on the top trainers list and are meant to show your relative progress.

However do note that catching a lvl 5 pokemon would decrease your average experience. And if you didn't already have that particular pokemon, your unique count would have gone up. So your points may go up or down depending on the changes that happen to these factors.

Where do I buy items?

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

How do I get more in-game money?

The simplest way to obtain more in-game money is by battling. Gym battles tend to pay higher. Also, you might be able to make more money if you receive 2xGYM or 4xGYM reward in the Daily Raffle. You can also sell any spare items at the pokemart for 25% of its value.
