What is DelugeRPG?
DelugeRPG is an online game where you can catch pokemon, trade them and even battle them against other players.
How much does it cost?
Nothing! The game is absolutely free to play. Will my personal information be visible to other players? Nope. We use your email only in case you forget your password and want to recover it.
What are the basics I need to know to play the game?
When you start, you're allowed to choose a starter Pokemon. To get more Pokemon, simply move around on one of the maps until another one appears. You can battle this Pokemon and try to capture it. If you capture it, it will be added to your team and you can use it to battle other people and catch more Pokemon!
Where is the Pokemon Center? How do I heal a pokemon after battle?
There is no Pokemon Center in this game. All your pokemon are automatically healed after a battle.
When I try to login, I keep getting a message that 'your session has expired'.
What are the differences between Normal, Shiny, Dark, Shadow, Ghostly, Metallic and Mirage Pokemon?
Dark pokemon have 25% more attack power. Shiny pokemon have 25% more health. Ghostly pokemon can scare the opponent. (this is similar to flinching) Metallic pokemon are immune to status ailments (e.g sleep,burn,freeze, poison etc.) Shadow pokemon disable the ability of Metallics and Ghostlys. (i.e, Ghostlys cannot make Shadow pokemon flinch. Shadow pokemon can cause status ailments to Metallics pokemon). Normal pokemon do not have any special ability.
The ability of Mirage pokemon changes depending on the opponent's type. 20% more attack against Dark. Gains 20% HP against Shiny. Copies the ability of Ghostly and Metallic pokemon when fighting against them. On facing Shadow pokemon, it transfers all its ailments to the opponent (if your pokemon is poisoned, it heals itself and poisons the opponent). And finally Mirage pokemon lose 10% health against normal pokemon. Here is their order from the most common to the rarest: (Most common) Normal -> Metallic,Ghostly,Shadow,Dark -> Shiny,Mirage (Rarest) (The ones grouped together have the same rarity)
Why do Mirage Pokemon have a weakness?
This was added with the Live Battle in mind. It creates a kind of rock-paper-scissor effect, where no one type is the best. What matters is how and when you use them.
How do I catch legendary Pokemon?
Once you beat the gyms and elite four of a particular region, you can find legends of that region randomly appearing on all maps. Beat all gyms,elite four and dojos to unlock all legendaries. Do note that legends are pretty rare when compared to normal pokemon, so they will not appear all the time. Also, you can catch only one Legend of a particular type. Example: you can have a metallic suicune and a shiny suicune. But not two metallic suicunes.
Not sure which pokemon is a legendary? Check the legends page on our wiki
I defeated a legendary pokemon instead of catching it. Will I be able to catch it again?
Yes, you will be. But you can own one legend of a particular type at a time. For example, you can have one dark entei and a normal one, but not two shiny entei. And if you trade away or release your dark entei, you'll be able to catch it again in the maps.
What are unique pokemon?
This is the number of different pokemon you have. For example, two shiny totodiles will count as one unique pokemon, whereas, one shiny cyndaquil and one ghostly cyndaquil are two unique pokemon.
What is the rarest pokemon?
There is no one particular pokemon that is the rarest. Legendary pokemon and special pokemon (metallic,dark etc) are generally rarer than normal pokemon. So, shiny lugia is as rare as a shiny kyogre, but rarer than a normal lugia or a ghostly abra.
How much is [pokemon name] worth?
If you're trading, the values are decided by the two parties involved in the trade. Don't let others tell you theres a set value for every pokemon.
Where is [Pokemon name] found?
All Pokemon appear randomly on the maps. However, some Pokemon only appear on certain tiles. e.g water pokemon will appear in the water. You can check the Pokedex to check where a particular pokemon is commonly found.
How do you switch pokemon in your team with a Pokemon in your Pokemon box?
How do I get on the Top Trainers list or the Top Collectors list?
It takes a lot of time and patience to get to the top. You need to have a lot of high level Pokemon with a lot of experience, and many, many battles won to get to the top 50 trainers. To get to the top collectors though, simply get as many unique (different) Pokemon as you can.

Can I battle my friends and how do I do it? (called live/online battle/PvP in most games)
Yes. Select 'Live Battle' from under the 'Battle' dropdown. It requires that your friend has enabled live battle on their profile. This feature is still under testing.

What are the stones (ie: Moon Stone, Water Stone, Thunder Stone, etc.)? Where do I purchase them?
Some Pokemon need stones to evolve. On DelugeRPG, these evolutionary stones are free, you do not need to purchase them, they'll be used at the time of evolution automatically.
I can't seem to find [an attack] on DelugeRPG. When is it going to be added?
Only attacks that do physical damage and cause status ailments have been added to DelugeRPG. It is unlikely that the attacks that have to do with detailed pokemon data or take multiple turns or depend on the weather etc., would be added.
Why are some attacks so expensive?
Attacks that are not normally learnt by your pokemon or do not share a type with your pokemon are much more expensive. If you want an attack that is unusual for your Pokemon, it would cost more to teach them that attack that it would if the attack was native to it.
What do the points mean?
The points are calculated from your total experience, average experience, unique pokemon and total battles won. They are the same points displayed on the top trainers list and are meant to show your relative progress. See the top of the top trainers page to see how points are calculated.
Where do I buy items?
You may purchase Items from the PokeMart which is under the Profile link on the menubar.
Where is the Indigo League?
Kanto Gyms are a part of the Indigo League. Thus, It can also be called the Kanto League.
How do I get more in-game money?
The only way to receive in-game money is by battling. Gym battles tend to pay higher. Also, you might be able to make more money if you receive 2xGYM or 4XGYM reward in the Daily Raffle. You can also sell any spare items at the pokemart for 25% of its value.
Someone contacted me saying they were staff of Deluge and want my password or want me to change my email. Should I do it? He says I'll get free legends!
Absolutely not, the staff of Pokemon Deluge will never require your password, so don't believe anyone who asks for your password regardless of who they are.
