The forums are for battling only.
As in any group no fighting
You will be given one pokemon and your favorite pokemon is your starter but at basic stage,such as my fave is gangar...so my starter will be gastly.
You start off at level one and ur first two pokemon will be level two.
Your pokemon level up when u do.
You level up by wining two more battles than ur level,such as level one has to win 3 battles to level up.
