...Character of the MonthProfessor Stevens'After a rather long wait, we've got our next Character of the Month, for the month of June! This time it's a rather odd winner, but all the same, give it up for Professor Stevens! Though he's an NPC, Stevens still boasts a rather amusing sort of personality. Eternally happy and always wearing that lazy smile, the Prof takes crap from all incoming trainers, without breaking a sweat. Either he enjoys talking to other people, or he has the patience of a saint. Or perhaps both. Seeing the fact that, from what we know about him, he is restricted by some greater power, he is unable to leave the establishment in which he works. So, he occupies himself by reading manga volumes and watching anime episodes on his laptop and keeping himself up at night with a little help from his coffeemaker. All in all, the Professor is either an extremely light-hearted, cheery guy, OR is extremely good at acting. But congrats, old man! Your hard work has not gone unnoticed! Cheers!Estrella Lab

A relatively short topic detailing how to train your pokémon in the RPG, without actually having to go into a battle.
What is move-tutoring?
Move tutoring is...what it sounds like. Teaching a pokémon a move that it does not already know. (Of course, the pokémon has to be able to learn whatever move you are trying to teach it.)
What kinds of moves?
First, remember that you can ONLY tutor a move that your pokémon CAN learn. Level-up moves, TM moves, move tutor moves. Just keep in mind these things;
- Teaching your pokémon level-up moves are the easiest of the three possibilities. Of course, it also depends on what level-up moves you're teaching. If your pokémon is level 8 and wants to learn a level 15 move, it would take a lot less time than say if your level 8 pokémon wants to learn a level 32 move. The greater the level-difference, the greater the effort needed. Makes sense, yes?
- TM Moves and Move Tutors are definitely the more difficult (unless the TM/Move Tutor moves are of the same type as your pokémon, like a fire type trying to learn Sunny Day or something). They will take more effort, naturally.
- Don't move-tutor in the middle of a battle. Don't attempt to. It's idiotic and probably won't work. Only use perfected moves in the middle of a battle. That makes sense, I hope.
What is technique-tutoring?
Technique tutoring is slightly different; it is basically refining a technique. This can range anywhere from simple strength training, for example speed training or accuracy training, or by using attacks in special ways/combinations that are not typical.
An example of using an attack in a way that is not typical would be: having a Stunky shroud themselves in a controlled, bubble-like cloud of poison gas and combining it with a head-on move, such as Crunch or Tackle. This is not typical, in the sense that your pokémon isn't firing off the move in the ordinary way that they do; it is not aiming at the opponent with the intent to hit the opponent. It is using the attack in a clever combination with another move and thus, making it much more potent.
How to tutor moves/techniques?
First off, you can either make a completely different topic (recommended) or continue posting in whatever topic you have. You'll basically be RPing with yourself (and your pokémon) and attempting to teach the move. Be creative by using the surrounding area. Or by having a other pokémon assist your pokémon (for example, if your Pact partner's pokémon is a fire type and you are trying to teach your fire type a move that his already knows).
You are allowed to double/triple/multiple post within these training topics. Make it believable, and in the case of particularly difficult moves, make it a few posts long if you can. A staff member shall be silently watching your progress. When the staff member feels as though you've done enough, they will notify you (typically by posting something like 'Move Learned!') in your thread).
The same goes for technique training. If you are doing level-up training, your mod will inform you every time your pokémon levels-up. RP well, and it should go be pretty quickly. You gain EXP bars as well; so if you don't finish leveling your pokémon up to (for example) level 10, you will still get EXP Bars for the training that you did do. (I hope that made sense.)
Remember, as your pokémon levels up, it will get increasingly harder to gain levels. Just like in the games.
For technique training in the case of using combinations and such, its the same thing as move-tutoring. It may take a bit more work, yes, but you will be informed when a technique has been learned.
Through move-tutoring, your pokémon is likely to grow a level. Possibly two. Same applies for the combination-style of technique tutoring. The regular technique tutoring as well, but you're already doing that with the intent of gaining levels, so..
