[Welcome to PKMNation]

Journal Entry: Sun May 4, 2014, 6:31 PM
At the southern tip of every region sits a dock where trainers, breeders, and contest connoisseur alike travel to. Why make such a trip you may ask? Well, its a wonderful and yet mysterious tale that has a part in how your adventure will begin.

It is rumored that somewhere in the middle of the open seas sits an island. Not just any island, but an island devout to Pokemon, inhabited by The Pokemon Professor. It is that this very same Professor runs a large lab where she spends day in and day out studying Pokemon. No one has ever seen or visited this Pokemon paradise but what can be said for sure is the excitement that comes from what is delivered from the island itself. From this island, a train continuously ventures on its journey over crisp ocean waters towards the regions with Pelippers and Wingulls roosting within for a long ride. Within the train's bowels Pokemon eggs sit awaiting to be delivered. As the train meets each watery station the docks are filled with ecstatic chatter and the soft flutter of Pelipper wings as the bird Pokemon take it as their duty to hand out each egg to their new homes.




So young one, are you ready for your future?
Let's begin then!


First off! Welcome to Pokemon Nation! We appreciate you wanting to join our fun community. Please read all the journals to get familiar with our group's process and rules.


Once you have finished reading through our journals and our join requests are open, go to the main page of our group and click the "Join our Group" Button.

A "Request to Join this Group" box will appear. In the "Notes" section, we will require you to provide the answers to questions we will ask on Opening Days via our [Group News!] journal. Question amount will vary. Due to our opening questions changing every opening, an example will be posted below:
I'd like my eggs please and have read the blogs provided!

Q: Question 1?

Q: Question 2?

Q: Question 3?

Q: Etc?


Why do the questions change, you ask? This makes sure new members take the time to read through our journals correctly and learn about how the group works. All the information we have provided is very important!


If you have answered the questions correctly, you will receive 2 [New Trainer Random Egg] and 1 [New Trainer Type Egg]. Each will contain 5 randomly selected Pokemon from which you can chose one (for a total of 3).


To hatch your new eggs, you will need to log into the [PKMNation Website] and access your inventory. Under the "Items" category you will see little egg icons. Click those to begin the hatching process!
Your Pokemon will then be added to your Inventory!

If you need a step-by-step for this process, see bullet two at the bottom of this journal!



As you start your adventure with your three new baby Pokemon, it is best to know that every member starts with 1 acre of land to house their Pokemon. This means that every member is allowed to have 10 Pokemon when they join the group. Please note that you can purchase more acres as well as other fantastic items at the [Delibird Market] for :points:!

It is recommended you draw reference sheets for each Pokemon you come to own!
A Pokemon that does not have a reference sheet cannot breed or battle, and will be prohibited from participating in events! We require this information be placed in the artist description of each reference sheet you post. Members are free to move information around or add more categories, but the following is required:
Pokemon:
Name:
Gender:
Type:
Special:
Hatch Date:
ID Number:

Level:
Starting Base Attack:
Current Base Attack:
Moves:

Level Up Log:

If you are uploading old references/clutches to a new account, please state that they are being re-uploaded from {account name}.


For a breakdown of each category
and what they mean, please see our small guide:
[Reference Sheets: A Break Down]!



Now that you have your new family, lets see what you can do in the group to become a better Pokemon trainer!




Here in PKMNation we enjoy seeing all types Ranches sprouting up along all the regions! If you're ever interested in seeing what types of ranches dot the group, feel free to visit the [PKMNation Website] and search for a member's inventory page! It will list their Ranch Types. Each member is allowed to list 3 types that their ranch specializes in. Please note that your specializations do not reflect the Pokemon you are allowed to have. You are allowed to obtain Pokemon of all types and sizes~


Confused with how the PKMNation Website works? Please see our [PKMNation.com Guide] on how to utilize the site~


Your Pokemon need fulfillment and require a way to grow big and strong. Whether you're a trainer dreaming to be the best, a ranch owner with wonderfully talented Pokemon, or just wanting to be a loving Pokemon owner with time to spare, it's best to take a gander at our [Leveling, Evolving & Moves] journal. There you will find out how to Level up, Teach Moves, and Evolve your Pokemon!


Let's not forget the true focus of our ranches: To expand our family and the families of others through breeding. Here in PKMNation we offer a variety of clutch outcomes that consist of Morphs, Shinies, Fusions and Crossbreeds. We also have special Pokemon here known as Rarities. Interested? Head on over to our [Breeding & Special Traits] journal to find out more about these special Pokemon and how they work!


Want to explore what our community has to offer? We have a lot of fun stuff for you and your Pokemon to do here in PKMNation! There are Trails that allow you to catch different Pokemon-- Monthly events where you can go on fun adventures and win fantastic prizes. All that and more can be found in our [Events] journal!


But that's not all! The Pokemon world wouldn't be complete without Battles, Contests and Regional Tournaments! You can read more about these events in our [Battles and Contests] journal.


Think you have what it takes to become a gym leader? Only the best can take on a gym! If you are interested, check out our [Region Gym Association]!


We know many of you may have Pokemon from other groups or wish to move on to other places! We have developed an easy and efficient way to trade Pokemon into and out of our group for your gaming convenience. Visit the [Link Center] to learn more!


Interested in chatting or roleplaying with other members? Feel free to visit our [General Chat] and [Roleplay Chat] rooms! We also have a [Skype Hangout] group!


Do you need to purchase items for your ranch? At the [Delibird Market] we provide members with items for breeding, move learning, evolution and more!


Having a problem? Can't find an answer to your question? Please send the group a note and we will work to help you as best we can! Don't forget to check out our [F.A.Q] journal in case your question is answered there!


If something isn't quite right in your personal inventory, please head over to our [Inventory Issues] journal so that we can better assist you!


What's that? You have a suggestion? We'd love to hear it! Head on over to the [Suggestion Hotline] and leave us a comment!


We hope you enjoy your stay here in PKMNation. Remember to abide by our [General Rules] and have fun!

^From this very journal. As you can see, the join button only appears during our openings, and when that happens, you have to answer the questions provided in the Group News journal. c: Not any of the old questions you might see when you scroll down, but the ones posted for that particular opening; they're different each time. So no, unfortunately we are not open anytime. You can check our front page to see the countdown to our next opening!

Hello!

Any journals linked on the front page are highly recommended to be read and reviewed before joining, as they will be the most used/important when participating in the group.
Aside from that, the others aren't quite as important, but may be interesting enough for you to check out! :>

Hello,

PKMNation is a large active group, as such work can get queued up, especially when the moderating team is busy with RL. Submissions will generally take a few days to process, sometimes as much as a week, again depending on a variety of factors that affect our availability. Our current submission queue is at 5 Days, so we ask the members be patient as we process through our work log.

Thanks,
-Drak

Hey Tubz!

You can use the contribute button on the front page (gyazo.com/53962f5ca7f6b4718a02… seen here, mine is listed as "submit art" but it's the same icon as yours!) or use the sidebar for the deviation you wish to submit and click "add to a group" (gyazo.com/2a9a7574f3dda98af698…), then pick the folder that best suits your deviation!
