Welcome to VPP. What we do here is raise virtual Pokémon as we post. It's quite easy because all you have to do is make posts around PD, which you are probably doing anyway. You simply choose a Pokémon you like and begin.
How Does it Work?
~ All VPP Pokémon start out as an egg. They then hatch when you get 15 more posts. They hatch (begin) at Level 5.
~ For every 3 posts you make, your Pokémon gains a Level.
~ Your Pokémon will evolve when it hits its normal Evolution Level.
~ If your Pokémon normally evolves by Stone or Trading, it will evolve at Level 40 instead.
~ Once your Pokémon hits Level 100, you're finished and you may choose a new one!
How Do I Join?
All you have to do to get your own VPP is to fill out this form:

Receiving Certain Pokémon
There are certain Pokémon that have rules or requirements in order for you to obtain or raise them.
Depending on the region, only certain Legends are available.
In order to raise a Legendary VPP, you must raise other types first. Each Legend has it's own unique set of types required to catch it. You may receive a Legend after you have the requirements for it.
When you complete a Legendary Pokémon, you must complete 10 full VPPs until you can get another one.
*Legends hatch at Level 50, but it takes 5 posts to go up 1 level for a total of 265 posts.*
~ Current Legends ~
Raikou (2 Electric, 1 Dark) Completed by Datasubject001
Suicune (2 Water, 1 Ice) Completed by Nanaki
Entei (2 Fire, 1 Psychic) Reserved by Espeon's Fury
Lugia (1 Water, 1 Flying, 1 Psychic) Reserved by Yojimbo

Celebii (2 Grass, 1 Psychic) Completed by Ninetails 009
If you have completed the requirements for a Legend, please PM Nocturne with your stats for approval.
If you have completed 2 of the 3 requirements needed for a Legend, you may reserve it through PM as well. This means that nobody can claim that Legend except you.
*Do not ask to reserve Legends not in the current region.*
When you are accepted, you may pick your Pokémon's egg type. This is what your VPPs will hatch from.
Bug Egg, Dark Egg, Dragon Egg, Electric Egg, Fighting Egg, Fire Egg, Flying Egg, Ghost Egg, Grass Egg, Ground Egg, Ice Egg, Normal Egg, Psychic Egg, Poison Egg, Rock Egg, Steel Egg, Water Egg
Certain Pokémon in the VPP are Baby Pokémon. They remain in their 1st Evolution Stage and only require 100 posts to complete. They may not be used to receive Legends and you must complete at least 1 VPP to raise one.
Aron, Azurill, Bonsly, Bulbasaur, Charmander, Chikorita, Chimecho, Cleffa, Cyndaquil, Eevee, Elekid, Igglybuff, Magby, Mime Jr., Minun, Mudkip, Munchlax, Oddish, Pichu, Pinpuku, Poliwag, Plusle, Skitty, Smoochum, Squirtle, Subomi, Tamanta, Teddiursa, Togepi, Torchic, Totodile, Treecko, Tyrogue, Wynaut.
If you wish to raise an Unown, you must first complete 1 VPP. Unown only require 200 posts to complete. They may be used to obtain Legends, but only 1 unown may be used for each Legend. Only 1 counts towards the 10 VPP you must complete after each Legend. Only 1 counts toward Master Status(es).
There are some Pokémon that have the option to come in pairs. When raising pairs they take 4 posts to go up 1 Level, for a total of 400, instead of 600 to do them separately. For most purposes, these sets are counted as just 1 VPP. They both get added in your collection, but are considered one set, or 1 completed VPP.
Solrock & Lunatone, Illumise & Volbeat, Gorebyss & Huntail, Shedninja & Ninjask, Slowbro & Sloking, Poliwrath & Politoed, Vileplume & Bellossom, Beautifly & Dustox, Plusle & Minun, Butterfree & Beedrill.
Cradily & Armaldo - Must have 1 Rock VPP to obtain.
3 Tyrouges (Hitmonchan, Hitmonlee, Hitmontop) - Must have 2 Fighting VPP to obtain.
Nidoran Male & Nidoran Female - Must have 1 Poison or 1 Ground VPP to obtain.
Omastar & Kabutops - Must have 1 Rock or 1 Water VPP to obtain.
Espeon & Umbreon - Must have either 1 Psychic or 1 Dark VPP to obtain.
If you have already finished a VPP from a pair, and decide you want its mate, then you can post to get the second one. It will take just 1 post to go up a level.
ex/: Take the egg for the Pokémon you want to add, it will hatch after 5 posts (Level 5). From there, treat each post as 1 Level, evolving it accordingly.
You may raise Pokémon from Diamond/Pearl.
All Shinou Pokémon are legal except the following: Yukishii, Emuritto, Agunomuu, Diaruga, Parukia, Hiidoran, Regigigas, Giradina, Kureseria, Fione & Manaphy, Darkrai, Sheimi and Aruseus.
Once you have completed 10 full VPPs (not including Baby Pokémon), you become a VPP Master. When you reach this status, you may choose 1 Pokémon (other than Legend or Pairs) to add to your collection for free. These Master Pokémon may count towards the 10 requirements between legends. Once you get your next 10, you may take another Master Pokémon.
It's Johto Movie Madness. These stars of the Orange and Johto Movies are now available, in this rare moment. Act early, because once they are gone, they're gone! You need to complete all required Pokemon in order to reserve.
Slowking- 1 Water and 1 Psychic. 100 Posts to complete.

~ Stay on VPP topic in this thread. That means only talk about VPP here. We have other threads for chatting. If you go off topic here, or SPAM anywhere on the PD forums, you will be punished.
The SPAMing punishments are:
Warnings, VPP Suspension (this can be up to 50 posts), VPP Ban.
A Suspension from the VPP means you cannot level up, evolve or finish your VPP Pokémon until the decided number of posts is finished. You aren't allowed to post in this thread until then either. Don't even think about SPAMing away your suspension posts.
A VPP Ban means you're banned. You forfeit your VPP/remove it from your signature and don't get to enjoy the fun of raising Virtual Pokémon.
