Contributor Rework

How to contribute as normal player

  • Be a part of the community. The best, by far, way to contribute to PRO and help to make it more enjoyable is simply to play it. Promote the game by word-of-mouth in your circle of friends or over the internet. Being a user and advocate, helps spread the word about our game, which has no marketing budget and can therefore only rely on its community to become more mainstream.

  • Donate. PRO is an online fan made free-2-play Pokémon MMORPG by fans for fans, but it can still benefit from user donations in many ways. Donations towards PRO are going towards server maintenance and its future development. All staff members and developers are unpaid fans and volunteers. Donations can be made via coin purchases in-game.
Please note that this alone does not grant the contributor role!

Official Contributor for PRO
Contributors are active and outstanding players that contribute to the PRO community in a consistent and meaningful way.
They count either as Streamers/Youtubers, Forum Helpers, Wiki Editors.

The contributor role can be obtained by contributing in many different ways, like doing videos/streaming, helping on forum through the creation of guides and the help on the resolution center, or being a wiki editor.
All the roles have different requirements to meet to join the role, however there are some general requirements that all of them share.

General Requirements
  • Having a clean infraction history. Depending on what the severity of the infractions commited was and the point in time at which they happened, staff may make the decision to not consider the said infraction/s.
    • Clean Infraction history includes as well serious infractions (e.g Permanent Bans, Toxic Behaviour, Continuous posting of Inappropriate content) on the OFFICIAL PRO Discord as that's a big part of our community. Minor infractions such as typing in the wrong channel or having posted once too many emotes do not count.
    • Some infractions might not be considered as the account owner might not be responsible for a specific action (e.g Internet Connection crashes during a Trade, and the situation is solved through the appeal section)
  • Be a good example for the community.




Methods of Contribution




Forum Assistance
  • Description
    • Forum Assistance Contributors write high quality guides and/or help in the General Support subforum.
    • These guides can be about quest walkthroughs, game mechanics and Pokemon knowledge.
      Translating guides or making non-english guides also count to this category as long as they credit the original creators!
  • Requirements (No need to meet both of them, but at least one)
    • Consistent contribution in forums, whether through direct assistance to other players or in the form of public guides is expected. High-effort guides of demonstrable use to the community are encouraged - as a minimum, we would like to see two months of active participation and helpful posts in General Support, a single well-constructed and high-effort guide, or several quest walkthrough-level guides.
      • An example of high effort guides is this: BOSS GUIDE meanwhile quest walkthrough guides, which require less effort, could be the one of the legendary pokemon quests.
