Welcome to a world of pokemon, Pokemon Battle Arena (PBA)
A game created by Kyro.

Chapter 1: Getting Started

Hello! So this is your first day into the Pokemon world you say?
Well lets get you started.
Go to http://www.pokemonbattlearena.net/ to log in or sign up (if this is your first time) and then play!
This game may be hard and tricky when you just starting but you'll soon figure out.
This is a guide focused on lots of questions I have seen asked around in the chat box so I have decided to post this guide as my 2nd guide.

Chapter 2: Mirrors

Mirrors are like a different channels with different people.

There is:

  • Mirror 1
  • Mirror 2
  • Mirror 3
  • Mirror 4
  • Mirror 5 (Premium Server)

Please note that to battle or trade (See Chapters 3 & 4) with a trainer you both need to be on the same mirror or else they won't see the request or you won't see the request!
Also, you can see people from all them mirrors but if you request them or they request you, you or they won't see it!
You can check which mirror your on in your URL:
Example: http://mirror02.pokemonbattlearena.net/members/

Chapter 3: Rules of the Game

I have chosen 10 rules that you will stick to in PBA!

1. Use proper grammar
2. Respect all staff members and other
3. Do not share accounts with other people as it is your fault if you cannot log in to your account
4. Do not use full caps in sentences, it will be annoying and gets more attention which is not fair to others who don't do all caps.
5. Do not use bad language and swear
6. No spamming, it is not allowed and staff members will not put up with this
7. Don't beg for Pokemon, money, or to be a moderator, most people will not answer to this
8. Do NOT pretend to be a moderator or another person because you will be banned for this
9. Do what your told by moderators and don't argue with them
10. Speak English unless you are in another language chat, this gets really annoying!

Chapter 4: Explore Section

Unlocked Maps

This is the page where you see all the maps you have unlocked, you start off at Hollow Brook Town and find your way through all the maps.

Skill Shop

This is the Shop where you buy some special skills for a certain Pokemon.
First you choose a Pokemon, then buy a skill for that Pokemon. After you have bought the skill there will be a link for you to continue shopping or to add the skill to your Pokemon. If you choose to continue shopping you can always choose the skill for the Pokemon by going to 'Trainer HQ - My Pokemon' (See Chapter 5).

Pokemart

This is a shop where you can buy evolution stones and poke balls. Potions are not programmed to work yet.
I don't want to go into a lot of detail so I'm just going to post some websites about these things.

Evolution stones

http://www.pbaforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=4340 (Thank you Shohs)

Pokemon Center

This is where you get your lineup (See Chapter 9) to be healed.
In the Poke center you can also swap Pokemon from your lineup into the poke center.

Chapter 5: Find Battles Section

Battle Trainers

Here you can battle trainers/gym leaders from all the regions that you know.
You can get items to evolve a certain Pokemon, train all your Pokemon and earn lots of money.
Check out my guide on this: http://www.pbaforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=10647

Find Trainers

Looking for offline battle with other trainers?
You came to the right place!

All you need to do is search for a person to fight with and then simply click 'Battle'!

Chapter 6: Trainer HQ Section

My Pokemon

This is where you can search through all your Pokemon to change skills, evolve them, look at their levels or just look at their pure awesomeness picture!
To evolve a Pokemon you will need the item to evolve the Pokemon (evolution stone (Chapter 3) or item obtained from trainer(Chapter 4)).
After you got the item there will be a link under the Pokemon which says 'Evolve Me'!

My Pokedex

By checking your Pokedex, you can see what Pokemon you have caught, normal, metal, shiny, dark and ghost. It is very useful because you can see which Pokemon you are missing and you can simply click on the Pokemon's name and see where to catch it.
It will also show a little picture of the Pokemon.

My Inventory

In your backpack you can check what pokeballs you have, evolution stones, badges, berries and other things.

My Profile

In your profile you can see your lineup, Trainer name, when you joined, when you were last seen, number of log ins, Global Ranking, Wins against Wild Pokemon, Pokemon caught and unique Pokemon caught.

You can also accept friend requests in your profile, you just have to scroll down and see your 'Pending Requests'. You can also add friends in chat box by clicking their name and request them as a friend or search for their name and do the same thing.

My House

You buy a house for $20,000 first. Then you can grow berries or release a Pokemon. When you were buying a house you would have been able to choose whether or not if people could release a Pokemon into your Yard. When you or someone else releases a Pokemon in your yard, there is a chance of it appearing while you walk in your yard. The rate of finding a Pokemon that you or someone else has released depends on its level when released. The more of the kind of Pokemon you release the better chance of it appearing in your yard.

You can choose to remove a certain Pokemon by going to My House and click remove on a Pokemon or you can call Pokecontrol to remove all the Pokemon in your yard.

My Inbox

The Inbox is where you can send and receive messages. To send a message you just go to 'Compose a Message' and find the person you want to send to then type in a message and click 'Send'. You can only send to a friend.

Spend My Credits

Here you can buy things with credits(See Chapter 10). You can buy Elemental Maps or buy pokemon. There are some Pokemon only available from spending credits so you might want to buy those!

Chapter 7: Settings Section

Change Setting

In here you can choose to show only yourself or everyone on maps.
You can change your current password into a new one or change the style of the page.

Send a Message

To send a message you just go to 'Compose a Message' and find the person you want to send to then type in a message and click 'Send'.
You can only send to a friend.

Pokedex

This pokedex is different, you can find any Pokemon and see where they can be found.
This can be very useful for finding Pokemon instead of searching for hours or asking questions.

You can choose to donate real money for credits to buy rare Pokemon.
You buy it with your credit card.

Logout

After a long day of playing PBA, you can finally log out and have a rest.

Chapter 8: Battling

To battle another trainer, both of you need to be in the same mirror ( See Chapter 2), then both of you need to agree with a meeting place. You both go to that meeting place and then you decide which one of you requests.

  • To request another person you find where that person is on the map and click on him/her and click 'Request Battle', decide if you want items or no items and then you'll be sent to a waiting page where you wait until the other person accepts.
  • To Accept a request you wait until they request and then you check your Inbox (See Chapter 5) to see a message from the person saying Battle Request from (Name)', click on that you will then see a link saying, 'Accept Battle Request sent by (Name)'. When you click on that, it will come up with the the Battle screen where you choose your starting Pokemon that you want to fight with first, you can also chat during the battle.

Chapter 9: Trading

To Trade with another trainer, both of you need to be in the same mirror ( See Chapter 2), then both of you need to agree with a meeting place. You both go to that meeting place and then you decide which one of you requests.

  • To request another person you find where that person is on the map and click on him/her and click 'Request Trade' and then you'll be sent to a waiting page where you wait until the other person accepts.
  • To Accept a request you wait until they request and then you have to move at least one step to refresh where everyone is and you'll see a pokeball pop up at the top-left section of your screen on the right of the speech bubble. When you click on that you will then see a small window pop up with a link saying, 'Accept Trade Request sent by (Name)'. When you click on that, it will come up with the trade screen where both of you can trade.

How do you trade you ask? To trade a Pokemon, you simply tick a Pokemon that you want to trade and click 'Update Trade'. If you want to trade pokemoney, then you put in an amount of pokemoney in and click 'Update Trade'.

When both of you agree with what Pokemon and how much pokemoney you have put in you then click 'I Accept'.

Chapter 10: Your Lineup

Your lineup is your main Pokemon which you fight with , it can hold up to 6 Pokemon. You can choose to swap a Pokemon from your lineup into the pokecenter and grab out another Pokemon to train. When you heal your Pokemon int he pokecenter, it will only heal your lineup.

Chapter 11: Credits

Credits are used to buy Pokemon common and rare. You can get credits from donating or, as part of the system update, getting 1 credit each day when you log in.
You can also get credits by using Paypal or your credit card.

Chapter 14: Shiny, Metal, Dark and Ghost Pokemon

There are special and cool Pokemon that are shiny, metal, dark or ghost Pokemon.
You can find these Pokemon on the same map as the normal Pokemon itself.
For Example if you are looking for a shiny groudon, you would go to Ground Map (See Chapter 11) to find a shiny, metal, dark or ghost groudon.
These Pokemon are rare and may take a very short time or a very long time to get it.

Chapter 15: Chatbox & Forum

When you have logged in, you can access the chatbox and forum by looking at the top of the screen, with the link to chat room and forum next to each other in a rectangular box.
In the chat room you can choose to talk about random things, trade money and Pokemon or just talk and relax.
In the forum you can post guides, look at guides, post replies, enter fun contests, talk about your favorite music and food and lots more just check it out!

Chapter 16: Premium's

To get premium, you will need to donate for credits (See Chapter 11) first.
