    Default URPG Mentor / Apprentice Program - New Players Come Here!


    “Hey, there!” the man greets as you walk into the building. It’s warm, homely--nested against the slatted walls is a huge fish tank with Luvdisc drifting slowly about inside. They seem to perk up at the sound of the door closing behind you.

    And the man himself? Well, he doesn’t have a shirt underneath that lab coat of us, so you’re a little weirded out, but you guess the weather’s warm enough to warrant it.

    “Welcome to the Pokemon Research Lab! I assume you’re here to help with our research? We’ve got a lot to learn about this new ‘URPG’ wormhole. Follow me, I’ll assign you to your research partner!”

    Spoiler:
    Thanks to the awesome researchers who have made this system a success many times in the past, and thanks to K’sariya and VeloJello for reviving this one! Thanks goes to K'sariya for this launch's banners.

    First Program started by The Jr. Trainer
    Second Program started by Ataro
    Third Program started by Alaska
    Fourth Program started by WTP
    Fifth Program started by Smiles



    He guides you to a large window at the far side of a room, where you see a massive, ripping portal to another dimension contained in a barren steel room. You can see scientists and machines clustered around the circular room through the glass that loops around it.

    “Now, wormholes are strange things. So let’s lay some ground rules before we get you with your partner.”

    • Be Active: You and your partner are a research team--and team members have to stick with each other! Whether you’re a mentor or an apprentice, be active once you join the program!
    • Be A Role-Model: If you’re a mentor researcher, try to be the best that you can be! Set a great and positive example for your little fledgling researcher.
    • Have a Discord: Discord is one of the easiest ways for people to connect and talk quickly--cooperating there will help you guys research more quickly and more efficiently!



    “Great! So here’s your partner--we’ll need a little bit of information about you both before you get started! Oh, and be sure to sign the liability waiver.”

    He hands both of you a clipboard and a pen. You stare at your new partner, and you both gulp a little nervously.

    Mentor:
    Username:
    Professions:
    Research Section: (what URPG section you're applying to mentor for!)
    Discord:

    An approver for the section(s) you apply for will approve your mentor application (either here or on Discord)!

    Apprentice:
    Username:
    Research Topic: (what URPG section you’re learning from your mentor!)
    Discord:

    Mentor(s) for your desired section(s) will claim you as soon as possible!


    “Great, thanks!” he says as he collects the clipboards from you. He looks them over, then retreats to a nearby counter to grab another couple of pieces of paper, handing one piece to you both.

    “Here’s a list of tasks we need researching. Pick what you’d like, then have your Mentor report back here when you’re done.” He pauses, smiling, then leans in to whisper playfully, “We’ve got a Medium Pokemon* in it for you when you do!”

    *once approved by Official or Moderator
    *limit three Medium-Pokemon per person


    You look over the tasks, glancing at the instructions at the top. It's got a bit of information on it, but you can sum it up as:
    • Each Mentor should keep a post with this list that tracks their partner’s tasks. You can use checkmarks inside of the task boxes ( ✓ ) to keep track of completed tasks!
    • Apprentices can’t use a single instance of an activity to complete more than one task at a time. Each task must be completed separately!
      • The only exception to this are the Park tasks "Capture an Uncommon Pokemon" and "Befriend a Pokemon." You can do each of these in one of the runs that use to complete one of the other three tasks, but you cannot, for example, befriend an Uncommon Pokemon to complete both of those tasks.

    • Some research sections have bonus tasks. Completing a bonus research task will give you a free BM/SM/MT/HA of your choice with the Medium Pokemon you receive from completing that research section.
    • If you were in the middle of completing an Apprenticeship during the last version of the program, no fear! If you completed research tasks for a section that are no longer available below, you can link to it and substitute old completed tasks for one of the new tasks.

    Checked up on something to make sure this was okay, then got distracted and forgot to actually approve it. You two are good to go!

    Wait what? Why weren't all these people in the PXR post?
