So basically ive been playing this game for over a year now and in those times ive noticed the different types of PL players. If they were to be categorized, i'd put it like this:------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Silent Player:
You never see their names in chat and once youve come across them in game and see their usernames, you might think "never seen that name before, maybe he is new". You click their names but to your surprise they have already obtained all the badges & legendaries, have 100+ shinies and the account is 300+ days old O.o
The Birthday Gift Seeker:
You come across this type of player once in a while in chat "hey its my birthday today please give me pokemon", "my birthday is today please give me a strong shiny". This player might also text in PM "can you give me Gible please its my fav poke and it's my birthday today" etc etc...
The Beginner Pokemon Seeker:
This type of player can be seen in chat almost everyday. "im new please give me strong poke", "i just started please give me a strong poke i need them". Sigh...at least seeker sounds less harsh than beggar.
The Attention Seeker:
Well we know that this kind of player is trying to be funny, but it really is not. The most common is "OMG i found Rayquaza", "wth i just found Lugia", and usually ends it with " lol jk"...mmmm okay.....just stop.
The Cunning Promoter:
This involves with player advertising their sales in player chat or help chat or both. Since trade-related can only be advertised on trade chat. This type of player tries to be clever by promoting their business in player/help chat. It goes in player chat like "Selling OP Caterpie With 20 eggmoves ! cheapest in town! only 300k" & followed by "sorry wrong chat" but you see them again in help chat doing the same thing...hmmm....suspicious...should i report?
The Ban Enthusiast:
Typically can be found in trade chat, especially when there is an auction going. Just when the auctioneer finishes the auction & is late by 1-2 seconds or even 0.00000000002 second...there will be chaos "rip delay" "Ban him!" "Report rip auction!" "OMG delay, ban hammer!" "Screenshot! i will report in forum".
The Committed Breeder:
Location: Route 3 daycare. You can see so many players there waiting around the daycare lady for hours, days, or weeks even. Some get tired and decide to sit on the patio on the left side or waiting by the lake just for a new view other than the daycare.
The " :v ":
For some reason, this type of players include the ":v" at the end of their sentences. Ive never figured out why :v it kind of looks like a Pidgey's beak though :v :v :v
The Suspicious FD Seller:
This type of players state that they are selling FD however......their account is only a few hours old, not a premium, and only have a level 5 froakie & caterpie in their team. Suspicious....
The Boastful Winner:
At the end of a match, be it a PvP or in tournaments, this kind of players always say things like "easy win", "lol i just beat him with one poke", "lol im not even using my strongest team".
The Humble Winner:
Basically the opposite of the above type. After a match they always say things such as "nice game", "gg" and other comforting words directed to the defeated player.
Players who act high and mighty, claiming themselves as 'elites' and to some extent 'gods'. They go around calling others "noob", "nub", or anything similar to that.
The Disappearing Challenger:
Every once in a while you will receive a PvP request from this type of players. You accept the request and prepare for a great battle but suddenly they are not responding or "disappear" mid-battle. Even worse if they disappear from the very start. I personally have never finished a PvP, not even once -.-
The Ridiculous Offerer:
You get a notification stating that a player has made an offer on your trade. You check your trade & notice that an offer has been made on your Bagon or any other precious Pokemon that you sell for 200k+ BUT the offer is just a Pidgey & 0c....that is just RIDICULOUS! Even worse if they offer nothing, its a sale not a gift!
The Confident Competitor:
Few minutes before tournament starts, this type of player will go like "I have a feeling I will win this!" or "Im gonna beat you all", "Prepare to be defeated"..the next thing you know they get knocked out in the first round.
This kind of player tends to help others, especially beginners by giving them free Pokemon. You can often see them in chat saying things like "Giving free poke to beginner PM me", "Free starter pack for newbie" etc etc. Keep it up!
The Typo Specialist:
"Anyone have Sciter?", "I need a Charmendar", "Looking for Tarnytar", "Buying Roilu" and much much more~
The Enraged Criminal:
This is specifically for the players who got arrested and thrown in jail at Oldpine Town due to the grand theft Magikarp quest. You will be seeing a lot of "omg im in jail! quitting this game!" "wth i got arrested what kind of game is this?!" chill guys~ it's part of the storyline.
The Traumatized Criminal:
Subsequently after "the enraged criminal' calm down, they enter into a state of deep shocked and traumatized being imprison in jail...they start to give advice to other players "Do not steal the Magikarp or you'll go to jail" "You will be stuck in Oldpine forever", "You have to make a new account if you complete the quest". That's nonsense! it's part of the storyline! you just have to calm down and know where to look to progress xD
The Unhelpful Guide Maker:
You can see plenty of useless guide in the guide section on forum posted by this type of players. For instance:
- Subject title: "Guide on How to find the 5 brothers"
Description: Talk to the guy in route 4 and find the 5 brothers and you will get an Eevee
that's not even helpful man....sigh.
- Subject title: "Grand theft magikarp quest guide"
Description: Talk to the rich guy in Darlinghurst Town and steal the 2 Magikarps
The Copycat Guide Maker:
This type of players basically steal others' works and claim that it is their own. You click on this one guide and..eh? wait i've seen this before! this is basically a 100% copy paste of the previous guides. Outrageous!
The Peace & Order Bringer:
They act like moderators but without the power to ban people. This involves a lot of "Trade related in trade chat only", "Do not spam", and also helping with answering people's questions from time to time. Thanks for doing that guys xD
The Moderator Dreamer:
The thing that this type of people seek is to become a moderator or in other words; they want their text to change colour to a green one. You can see them asking people around in chat or in forum "How to become a mod? i wanna be one", "where can i fill in the application form to be a mod?". All the best dreamers~
The Click Baiter:
They could easily be in the same category as "The Attention Seeker" but i think they deserve a special title for themselves. We don't know the reason why they are doing it, probably just out of boredom. Some of the click baiters i've seen in action say things like "I found shiny Dratini" or "Wth i can't believe this i just caught shiny Bagon!" and include the link number of the Pokemon but when we click it turns out to be a normal rattata........ typical.
The Ban Regular:
You see their names several times on the report & appeal section saying "am i banned?" "how long am i banned?". They are simply those kind of people who got ban again & again & again up to the point their names become familiar to you and whenever you see their names you will go like "hey he got banned again? thats like the 10th time this week, unbelievable". Please try not to break the rules guys
The Proud Show-off:
There is nothing wrong in feeling proud of achieving something BUT when you show off like a hundred times and express it in a way that makes you look like a big fat talker dude, it gets really annoying. "lol just caught my 10th shiny today and im not even prem", "i just caught Gible in 5 min here lol", "Just encountered a shiny Scyther lol im not even trying"....dude cut it out already!
The Pathetic Refresher:
You can see a lot of them in tournaments. Whenever they are in a losing battle and know that it's impossible to win, they only have one thing in mind; REFRESH. Why? Because they can't accept the fact that he/she will lose and if he/she can't win, then no one can.
The Event Co-Ordinator:
These type of players are known for running their own mini-events, whether it be trivia contests, raffles, tournaments, etc. They sure make PL lively especially when there is no official PL event going for quite some time..thumbs up!
The Major League Trainer:
You see their names numerous times for winning tournaments over and over again. With strong and trained Pokemon in their team, they focus on the in-game tournaments, as well as participating in player-run competitive events. You can find some of this players on the leaderboard for the most tournament win. I have faced one of them before in a battle and got beaten up pretty bad .___. All i can say is that for all the effort & time they have put in, they deserve the title of "The Major League Trainers".
These are players who are knowledgeable about most things game-related, often found in the Help Chat posting yet another link to a forum guide. They are always there to help whenever needed. Thank you for all the help guys! it is really nice to have you guys around in PL xD
I don't think we need an explanation for this one. We all know these type of players and I personally enjoy watching them in chat xD They sure do make PL much more lively !
The Regretful Auctioneer:
This usually happens when the auctioneer only receive bids that do not meet his/her expectation. "Auction shiny Umbreon starts at 1k 1 min" however the winning bid happen to be only a mere 10k, the auctioneer then goes like "omg i ain't gonna sell my shiny Umbreon at that price i'd rather be banned instead" so in the end he decides to go MIA and get reported in forum.
The Unreliable Informant:
Simply players who give unreliable or false information to others. For example:
A: can i catch Bulbasaur here?
B: yes you can at route 3.
A: is there Charizardite Y already?
B: yes i saw someone selling in player shop.
........if you don't know just say you do not know sigh.
The impatient Offerer:
Have you ever logged in and then see a notification that someone has made an offer on your trade? You get a little bit excited and be like "yes finally im getting some money" then you immediately check your trade page but you do not see any offer at all and be like "aww man where did he go". wew i know how disappointing that is :/
that's all for now, will add more soon xD
OMG these all soooooo true x"D
And also, i found some cases that some old players who do give away for newbs, and some "almost-old-player" made new accs, so they can join the give away that old-player do for non-map, then re-selling it on main-acc x"D
or maybe some beggars xD like.. "hi i'm new here, give me money" or "hi, i'm new here, give me level 100 poke"
