- If you use a move on your opponent and they do not respond to it within forty eight hours of your posting, then the move is an automatic success. You may post exactly what the move does to their character and take another turn. After three of these autohits, you may declare yourself the winner of the battle.
- If an opponent ignores your move, you may claim an autohit on them. Please be sure to post that they ignored your move and point out where.
- Player vs. Player battles are not moderated. If you feel like your opponent is cheating, go to a Staff Member.
- Every damaging attack that hits deals at least one point of damage regardless of defenses or variable damage calculation.
- [+] Official Rules
- No wager can be placed on an Official Battle meaning that nobody will win or lose money due to the outcome of the fight.
- Other than Pokémon Held Items, the use of items is prohibited during the course of the battle. However, a Trainer is free to use them before or after a battle.
- Only one Pokémon is allowed to actively participate in the battle. Of course, Double Battles are excluded from this rule, but such a condition must be stated clearly before the battle begins.
- Trainers can not physically interfere with battles. Official Battles are meant to test a Trainers command over their team, not a Trainer’s physical abilities. Certain challenges can be exempt from this rule, but must be stated clearly before it begins.
- Other Trainers not involved in the battle are not allowed to interfere. This is excluded in the event of a Double Battle. In such an event, each of the partnered Trainers must use only three of their own Pokémon. These rules must be clearly stated beforehand.
- Pokémon may not under any circumstance attack a Trainer.
- A Pokémon must perform at least one move before being allowed to switch out, save for participation in a Gym Battle, where switching entails forfeiting the current round. This is to prevent the constant switching of a Trainer’s Pokémon.
- A Pokémon League Certified Judge must always be there to witness a battle. Judges are always stationed at Gyms, the Pokémon League, and Battle Centers.
When your Pokémon gains Experience, levels up, learns a new move or if you gain Pokémon for your party, Items for your Inventory, and pretty much any change to your Character Profile, you will need to fill out a Modification Request. So yeah that was a mouthful, but here's how it works. To request a modification to your Character Profile, go on over to the Profile Modification Forum and fill out the Modification Template. Once filled out, a Staff Member will look it over, then modify your Character Profile accordingly. Okay, next section!
This is our in depth combat system unlike any you will see on any other site.
- [+] What makes it so special, you ask?
There are two types of Moves on Pokémon Voyage, One Slot and Two Slot Moves. In a turn, players have two "Move Slots" that they can fill out however they wish.
One Slot Moves include basic attacks, Buffs, and Debuffs. A player may use two One Slot Moves per turn, but there are a few restrictions.
- The same move can not be slotted twice.
- If two offensive Attacks are slotted, only one may be used for offense. The other shall be used for defense.
- Two Buffs or Debuffs that boost or lower the same Stat can not be slotted.
Example: Defense Curl and Bulk Up
- Debuffs are considered as Attacks, so they cannot be used to proceed with another Attack. Buffs, on the other hand, can as they are used for defense/support.
- Order: Normally within a turn, a defensive turn is taken before the offensive turn. This is because the Pokémon’s first move would be to Counter/Avoid/Take or otherwise manipulate the incoming attack. Afterward, the offensive turn is taken to launch an attack. There are some special cases, however, when a defensive turn can come after an offensive one, but in nearly all cases, this does not happen. Only the use of certain moves trigger this to happen.
- Options: You don’t HAVE to take a Defensive turn or an Offensive one. One could choose to take an attack head on or not attack and only defend. It is up to the Trainer and how they battle. A Trainer cannot save Slots for use in the next turn. If no offensive action is taken by the opponent, there is no move to defend against.
- Dodging: In order to preform a dodge, it is considered as a "One Slot" move. This prevents people from dodging and using two One Slot attacks after. This also avoids the possibility of being cheap by dodging and using a Two Slot move or a full turn count. Avoid attacks wisely. Certain attacks cannot be dodged, nor partially dodged via a graze. These attacks, however, can be blocked and intercepted
- STAB: Same Type Attribute Bonuses do apply to moves on both Slots. If two Pokémon at the same level and same power use Water Gun, the one that is a natural water type will overpowered the non-water type because of STAB. This also includes the changing from physical to special or vice versa via STAB as mentioned in the Rules. STAB will be added first before applying Weakness/Resistance multipliers. (The only time STAB does not apply is when used by Pokémon under level ten).
- Items: Items used by Trainers take a whole turn to use. However, an item held by a Pokémon only takes up a single Slot. In this way, it forces careful item usage and more strategy for Trainers. Keep note that when posting on the use of the Item, we expect some creativity out of it.
- Switching: Switching Pokémon takes up a full turn. This means they are left defenseless to whatever attack they switch in to and cannot perform a defensive move. Furthermore, since they did not perform an attack, there is nothing for the opposing Pokémon to defend against.
Special Note: If Pursuit is used by someone after a person has switched Pokémon, it will take a full turn as well. But if it is used before (i.e. the Trainer predicted the switch), it will not. This is more a measure to balance Pursuit as it is an iffy move.
Types are an important aspect of Pokémon. Every Pokémon and every Move has a type to it, one of seventeen, each with its own strengths and weaknesses.
- [+] More Info About Types:
- A Pokémon has up to two Types, depending on species, and gains all of the weaknesses and resistances of all applied Types. Unlike Pokémon, a Move can only have a single type, and it plays on the weaknesses and resistances of Pokémon that it is being directed at. As noted above, a Pokémon that uses an offensive Move of its type, it receives a boost in damage via STAB.
As a side note, if a Pokémon with two types, where one type has a weakness to a specific type, but its other type is strong against that same type that it is weak to, the weakness and strength cancels each other out and they take normal damage.
Below is a chart that logs the strengths and weaknesses of the different types
In combat, a Pokémon is able to use techniques that form the core of a Pokémon's combat abilities.
- [+] All About Innate and Learned Moves:
- A Pokémon has two separate groups of Moves: Innate Moves, and Learned Moves. Innate Moves are learned naturally by the Pokémon and are listed in that Pokémon's PokéDex entry. Any given Pokémon will know every Innate Move listed as being learned at a Level equal to or below its own. Unless it evolves or somehow becomes unable to use an Innate Move, it will never forget it, and will always be able to use it.
A Learned Move, on the other hand, is one of three things:
- A Move that was taught via a Technical Machine to the Pokémon
- A Move taught to the Pokémon via other means, such as a Move Tutor.
- An Egg Move obtained through breeding.
A Pokémon may know up to four Learned Moves. If the Pokémon learns a new Learned Move and already has four, it must forget a previous one in order to make room. Once forgotten, a Learned Move cannot be recovered without a Move Tutor so choose your moves wisely!
Please keep your Pokémon's Learned Moves in a list with that Pokémon's profile and statistics. Innate Moves... well, you should be able to figure that out just by looking at your Pokémon's PokéDex Entry and comparing its Level to the Learn Levels of the Innate Moves in its entry!
Okay, that was a LOT in information about Learned Moves and we understand that this concept can be a bit overwhelming for players not familiar with it. This section is going to go into detail about how Learned Moves can be... learned.
TMs, HMs, and PTMs are the most common method of obtaining Learned Moves. Like the Generation IV games and prior, TMs can be used once while HMs and PTMs can be used indefinitely. While TM Moves can be overwritten with new ones, HM Moves can not. So please, use them with caution. To use a TM or an HM, place the disk on the Pokémon's head. From there, the information on it will transfer itself into the memory banks of the Pokémon. (Feel free to take creative license with this interpretation of teaching moves to your Pokémon. The above example is a rough outline of the most basic method. Remember, they ARE disks and can be used realistically as training videos or audioplays).wrote:For all methods of obtaining Learned Moves, please consult the Generation V move lists on either Serebii or Bulbapedia.
Note: HMs like Fly and Surf are taken literally in PV meaning a Pidgey can not carry a Trainer with fly and a Goldeen can not carry one with Surf.
PTMs are a Pokémon Voyage exclusive that stands for Penny Technical Machines. These are much cheaper than TMs and HMs, but the moves that they teach are much weaker. These include basic moves such as Tackle and Leer as well as basic elemental moves such as Ember and Water Gun. As mentioned above, PTMs are infinite use, but there are two conditions for using them.
- With the exception of Normal-type PTMs, the Pokémon that is learning the move must have that element as their primary or secondary Type.
- The recipient Pokémon must not be able to learn the move via level up.
Now that you know about Learned Moves, let's give you an example with this Tauros.
As you can see, it knows nine Innate Moves, but no Learned Moves. Meet TM Stone Edge. By letting Tauros gain the knowledge off the disk, he has now obtained a Learned Move. Here is his new entry.

- [+] What's All the Fuss About?
PV is the number one site for in-depth battle strategy and immersion. And this section of Combat is no light matter. Lucky you, you'll always have this guide to refer to until you know these Priority Moves and how they affect your battles by heart.
To start things simple, Priorities have been split into five categories: Priority Attacks, Priority Buffs/DeBuffs, Priority Recovery Moves, Slow Priority Attacks, and Last Priority - each with their own special battle strategy. Updates to the MoveDex will happen periodically to reflect these changes - for now, please refer to the "Moves That Will Use This Format:" spoiler under every header.
- Priority Attacks such as Quick Attack will cost twenty stamina to use.
- Priority Attacks have reduced damage.
- Priority Attacks can be used to intercept AND block. Exceptions will be listed in the Move Dex.
- Priority Attacks have an added ability to decrease the accuracy of any move by fifteen percent
- If both Pokémon use a Priority Attack, Speed Classes are used to determine who hits first. However, both Pokémon will sustain damage unless the quicker Pokémon faints the slower first or Sucker Punch is used.
- Certain Priority moves can be used to Intercept and Block, however, the auto-hit Priority effect is terminated. Priority Moves follow the stamina deductions and Slot-changes of Blocks and Intercepts.
- All Priority Attacks can be cancelled by Sucker Punch. The Pokémon whose attack is cancelled takes damage. If used to cancel a Priority, Sucker Punch costs ten stamina. A cancelled priority is a five stamina cost. Sucker Punch works as a normal priority when used against a normal move; that is, twenty Stamina, ten damage, with the auto hit clause.
- Priority Attacks work only slightly differently in double battles - in the case of the Pokémon using a Priority on a foe that targets another Pokémon, the foe's attack is redirected to the Pokémon using the Priority. However, any attack that follows by another foe can still be dodged, intercepted, or blocked.
- Status effects also become auto-hits with reduced accuracy in the case of priority use.
- [+] Example of Quick Attack
- Quick Attack: Physical, Two Slot| 10
Auto-hits before foe's attack. Foe's attack ALSO auto hits, unless attack is a selected 'special' priority attack like Sucker Punch, which cancels out Quick Attack and deals damage. (The cost is twenty stamina per use. Now called a "Priority" effect)
- [+] Example of Sucker Punch
- Liepard uses Sucker Punch. The cost is twenty stamina and the attack deals twenty damage.
Furret uses Quick Attack. The cost is twenty stamina, and the attack deals twenty damage.
Result: Too bad the Trainer thought Quick Attack would hit before Sucker Punch! Quick Attack is cancelled by Sucker Punch. Because of this, Liepard's stamina is reduced by ten only, and Furret's Quick Attack is cut short. Furret's stamina is reduced by five, and it takes twenty damage as a result.
- [+] Example for Single Battles
Charmander uses Ember for thirteen damage.
Sentret uses Quick Attack for ten damage and at the cost of twenty stamina. It is an (Auto hit) move.
Results: Quick Attack hits Charmander. (There is a roll here now for the accuracy of Ember. The accuracy is cut by fifteen percent because of Quick Attack's alarming speed.)
Results: Sentret is too close to avoid Ember! Charmander is not fazed by Quick Attack! The attacks happen so close together, it is an auto hit for both!
Results: Subtract ten damage from Charmander and thirteen damage from Furret.
- [+] Example for Double Battles
- Post One (Player 1)
Charmander targets Bulbasaur with Ember. pending
Squirtle targets Pikachu with Tackle. pending
Post Two (Player 2)
Pikachu uses Quick Attack on Charmander. (Auto hit)
Immediate result: Because Pikachu used Quick Attack on Charmander, Charmander's Ember gets redirected from Bulbasaur to Pikachu with a fifteen percent deduction in accuracy. Damage is calculated if the attack lands, and is reflected in Player Two's Battle Summary. Because Quick Attack is a Two Slot move, the player will not be able to Dodge or otherwise manipulate Squirtle's Tackle. That damage is also calculated and described in the post if a teammate does not take the damage for Pikachu.
Bulbasaur takes Tackle for Pikachu at a cost of five stamina, and uses Vine Whip on Squirtle. pending
Result: Since Pikachu's Quick Attack is a priority, Charmander is hit with Quick Attack before all other attacks land. Because of the close proximity, Ember cannot be followed through to its original target, Bulbasaur. Ember, then, is re-directed to auto-hit on Pikachu because of this sudden close proximity.
Despite turn order, Ember's damage is also calculated with Quick Attack's because it is affected by the Priority of Quick Attack. The result is damage for both Pokémon. All other attacks require another turn to calculate damage after defensive action is taken.
- [+] Example for Double Battles (2)
- Post One (Player 1)
Charmander targets Squirtle with Tackle. pending
Vulpix targets Starmie with Quick Attack. (Auto hit)
Post Two (Player 2)
Immediate Result: Because Vulpix used Quick Attack on Starmie, Starmie's next attack gets redirected to Vulpix with a fifteen percent deduction in accuracy. Damage is calculated if the attack lands, and is reflected in Player Two's Battle Summary. Because Quick Attack is a Two Slot move, Player One gets the option to Dodge the next incoming attack during their next turn. All other attacks require another turn to calculate damage after defensive action is taken. So in short, Priority Attacks are calculated first, then the normal turn order resumes.
Result: Starmie cannot Dodge Quick Attack because of its Priority. Starmie uses Bubblebeam. Bubblebeam misses. Starmie takes damage, Vulpix does not. Damage is calculated and reflected in Player Two's Battle Summary. Turn order goes back to normal.
Squirtle dodges Charmander's attack and uses Water Gun on Vulpix. pending (End of Player Two's Turn)
- [+] Moves that will use the Priority Attacks Format:
Progressive MoveDex: Priority AttacksMoveTypeSlot ValuePowerAccuracyDescriptionFake OutPhysicalTwo Slot10100% This move may interrupt Recovery Priority moves, cutting their effects by one-third. Damage is calculated normally afterwards. If Fake Out is used to cancel a Recovery Priority, Fake Out requires only five stamina to use. In any other circumstance, it costs twenty stamina to use this move.FeintPhysicalTwo Slot10100% Detect, Protect, Wide Guard and Quick Guard are destroyed. Damage is not calculated against Detect, Wide Guard, Protect or Quick Guard. This move costs twenty stamina to use.Aqua JetPhysicalTwo Slot10100% This jet of water is launched at the opponent at an incredible speed, and it costs twenty stamina to use.ExtremeSpeedPhysicalTwo Slot10100% The user charges the foe at blinding speed, costing the user twenty stamina.Bullet PunchPhysicalTwo Slot10100% The user’s arms glow a bright orange as they dash at the foe, striking the target repeatedly with great speed, and costing the user twenty stamina.Ice ShardPhysicalTwo Slot10100% The user fires multiple small spikes of ice or one large one towards the target at lightning fast speeds, costing the user twenty stamina.Mach PunchPhysicalTwo Slot10100% The user dashes at the foe, delivering a swift punch and costing twenty stamina.Shadow SneakPhysicalTwo Slot10100% The user's shadow stretches until it is behind the foe, then lashes out from underneath costing twenty stamina.Sucker PunchPhysicalTwo Slot10100% This move will always hit first, and cancel out other Priority Attacks and their effects. If the foe is not attacking and Sucker Punch is used, it will fail and five stamina will be deducted. Otherwise, it will cost twenty stamina.PursuitPhysicalTwo Slot10100% The user chases after a fleeing foe, using the victim's cowardice to its advantage. A fairly weak move at base, Pursuit deals double to an enemy that is running away or being switched out by its Trainer, costing twenty stamina to use no matter what.BidePhysicalTwo SlotVaries- The user endures attacks for two turns, then strikes with all their force, causing damage equivalent to double that they took. It costs twenty stamina to use. Bide cannot be used to Block or Intercept.
- Priority Buffs/DeBuffs can only be cancelled by Feint, which activates right after all Buffs and DeBuffs to break them. Feint causes damage only against select Buffs and DeBuffs.
- Priority Buffs/DeBuffs always activate before Priority Attacks.
- [+] Example
- Ally Switch - DeBuff | Two Slot (switches place with an ally, switches foe's targets. Happens before all attacks, cannot be used to Dodge.) Normally, returning a Pokémon is a Two-Slot action that happens after moves - in PV, Ally Switch can be used in single battles to send out any other team member before the attacks land. In double battles, you can change positions only with another ally. Feint is capable of overwhelming Ally Switch. Turn order and Turn Order Conditions apply afterwards.
- [+] Battle Example
- Player One
Kadabra uses Ally Switch
Kadabra prepares to switch out for Raichu. pending
Sharpedo uses Feint.
Immediate Result: Sharpedo breaks Buffs/DeBuffs and/or causes damage. In this case, Sharpedo causes damage after breaking Ally Switch. Kadabra remains on the field.
Results: Sharpedo breaks Kadabra's Ally Switch.
Kadabra takes fifteen damage. This is reflected in Player Two's Summary.
Note:Even if the Player Turns are reversed, this scenario plays out the same since Priority Buffs and DeBuffs always activate before Priority Attacks, and Feint always breaks Priority Buffs/Debuffs excluding Endure. Check the Progressive MoveDex for other conditions applying to Feint below.
Priority Recovery Moves
- [+] Moves that will use the Priority Buffs/DeBuffs Format:
Progressive MoveDex: Priority Buffs/DeBuffsMoveTypeSlot ValuePowerAccuracyDescriptionSnatchDebuffOne Slot-- The user waits for the opponent to use a Buff/Debuff move then, it jumps in and reaps the benefits for itself. When Snatch is used, the Pokémon makes a basic attack against an enemy. If this attack connects, the user may select one Support-type move in the target's arsenal, and use the move itself. Can only be canceled by Feint, cannot steal Helping Hand and you do not keep the Buff. Will activate before Priority Attacks.Wide GuardBuffOne Slot--% Protects self, and team, against attacks that target multiple team members. This move can be broken by Feint. Will activate before Priority Attacks.Quick GuardBuffOne Slot--% Protect self, and others, against all Priority Attacks, and can be broken by Feint. Will activate before Priority Attacks.ProtectBuffOne Slot--% This move is less successful without a break. Will activate before Priority Attacks. There is no stamina penalty for this move, however it can not be used in succession and can be canceled by Feint.DetectBuffTwo Slot--% The user senses incoming danger and dodges. Will activate before Priority Attacks.

This move will activate before Priority Attacks and can only be canceled by Feint.Follow MeDeBuffOne Slot--% Follow Me forces the opposing user to attack the user rather than the intended target during battle. This move will activate before Priority Attacks and can only be canceled by Feint.Rage PowderDeBuffOne Slot-100% Rage Powder forces the opposing user to attack the user rather than the intended target during battle. This move will activate before Priority Attacks and can only be canceled by Feint.Ally SwitchDeBuffTwo Slot--% Ally Switch can be used in single battles to send out any other team member before the attacks land. In double battles, you can change positions only with another ally. Feint is capable of overwhelming Ally Switch, this move will also activate before any Priority Attacks.
- These moves cannot be interrupted, except by the use of Fake Out. When Fake Out is used on a Recovery Priority, the effects are reduced by a third. Damage is deducted from the recovery move's total. When used to cancel a Recovery Priority, it only costs the user five stamina to use, and five stamina for the Pokémon whose Recovery Priority was interrupted.
- These moves always activate after Priority Attacks, but before Slow and Last Priority attacks.
- Speed Class determines when Recovery Moves activate in a turn in regards to Standard Attacks.
- Recovery moves cap at 90 HP and cost ten stamina.
- [+] Battle Example
- Player One
Staryu uses Recovery. Lvl 15. Recovery heals forty five HP.
Meowth uses Fake Out. Lvl. 15. Fake Out deals ten damage and cuts recovery by 1/3. The cost is twenty stamina.
Results: Staryu's Recovery is interrupted by Fake Out. Staryu recovers forty-five HP. Fake Out reduces the healing move by fifteen points. Fake Out causes ten damage. Staryu recovers twenty HP.
Note:If used to cancel a Recovery Move, Fake Out costs only ten stamina. A cancelled Recovery Move only deducts five stamina from the user. Fake Out works as a normal priority when used against a normal move; that is, the cost remains twenty stamina for ten damage, with auto-hit clauses.

Hit Points, also known as HP, are a set number of points representing how healthy your Pokémon is. Every time your opponent lands a hit on you, you lose a certain amount of hit points. How many hit points you lose depends on the base power of the move, the ferocity of the move (Critical Hits), and the type of move when applying weaknesses and resistances. When your HP hits zero, your Pokémon is considered knocked out from its injuries.
- [+] A Note About HP
- Your Pokémon’s HP does NOT recharge as your progress through a topic. The only methods to restore a Pokémon’s health are HP Restoration Items such as Hold Items, Berries, and Potions, HP Siphoning moves (Be it Pokémon or the terrain), or getting your butt over to a Pokémon Center. However, by traveling from one area to the next (Ex. Walking from Kuro Caverns to Shinrei Caverns) your Pokémon will recover 50% of their total HP.
Stamina, not to be confused with HP, is the amount of energy your Pokémon has to battle. The more energy a Pokémon puts into battle, the quicker its Stamina depletes so don‘t push them too hard. As a Pokémon’s Stamina lowers it gets noticeably slower and more sluggish, less accurate, and dodges become much more difficult to pull off, if at all. When a Pokémon runs out of Stamina they faint from exhaustion, so don’t neglect it. Note that "fainted" and "knocked out" status have no specific difference. They are just two different terms that need to be distinguished.
- [+] A Pokémon’s stamina can be affected in a number of different of ways:
- Successfully dodging of an opponents attack will result in fifteen points of Stamina being depleted on the spot.
- If your opponent only manages to graze you with their attack, making it only a partial dodge, you will instead lose only five points of Stamina and take only one-half of the attack's initial damage. Note that partial dodges are a sign of a Pokémon’s weariness, thus they can only be performed when the Pokémon's Stamina falls below fifty percent.
- When using moves like Fly or Dig, the first turn of the move will always result in ten points of Stamina being depleted, since the phase technically counts as an auto-dodge.
- Using moves like Teleport and Extreme Speed to dodge will always result in five points of Stamina being depleted.
- While participating in Double Battles you may have one of your Pokémon take a hit for your partner and sustain the damage they were meant to receive. This action goes in the Defensive Slot and results in five points of Stamina being depleted.
- Moves that cause the user to receive recoil damage will, rather than take away HP, further exhaust the user and cause Stamina to be depleted. How much stamina that's depleted depends on the move itself, refer to the MoveDex for that.
- Moves or Techniques used consecutively each turn will result in three points of Stamina being depleted, and stacks by three with each consecutive use. These include Dodging, Blocking, Intercepting, and move uses. Note that Techniques themselves are separate from moves. That is, blocking twice in a row results in three stamina loss, but blocking twice in a row with the same move results in six stamina loss.
- Powerful moves, such as Draco Meteor and Overheat, in addition to decreasing the Pokémon's power each time they’re used, will also deplete five points of Stamina for each usage.
