Today, Sunday, October 31st, the second beta of the VictoryDex has been released. Sadly not as much was completed as I would have liked but great strides were still made. Completed features include:
- Generation 5 Items, Abilities, Moves, and Pokémon.
- The addition of some sprites, including Black and White sprites, Black and White footprints, and the old Red/Green sprites.
- Partial migration to the VictoryBattles core. This is a somewhat slow undertaking that will be finalized in Beta 3; once done things should run a lot smoother.
- A fix in some evolution table bugs.
- Improved page titles. This was a Beta 1 regression.
- The style switcher is now fully working, so you can pick a different theme if you want, like the newly launched Dark Illusionist theme.
So, yeah, the big thing is the generation five data. The next Beta will work extensively on more interactive features, should give more detailed location data, and will ideally include even more detailed Gen 5 data.

After more than ten full months of sticking with the vBulletin default style, we finally have a new default one to call our own: Dark Illusionist. It is based on Zoroark, as you should be able to tell, and was designed by A'bom, with imagery work by yours truly. Many thanks also to OMGITSJAD and FreezeWarp for helping test out the new style and helping to clean it up. The theme is not fully complete, so expect minor changes as time passes.
In addition, a second new theme, also designed by A'bom, titled Quilava's Inferno, has been released. Many thanks to Buoysel for the banner image.
I hope you enjoy the new style. If not, or you prefer the old way, you can switch styles in the bottom left corner. The old style is called, aptly enough, vBulletin Default Style.

The VictoryDex is a comprehensive Pokédex on not only Pokémon, but also items, abilities, and moves.
Current Features (Beta 2)
- General data, including foreign languages, dex numbers, type advantages, and evolutions for all Pokémon up to and including Generation 5.
- Moves that can be learned through TMs, Move Tutors, and by Level Up for all five generations.

- Location data for the First Generation and Fifth Generation games.
- Extensive flavour text and sprite data for anybody who wants to use them.
- Other data on individual moves, items, and abilities.
- A powerful everything-search, which will search for Pokémon, items, and abilities based even on what it /sounds/ like. So Peeeckachu will find Pikachu.
- IV and EV calculators are planned, with partial demos included, but they don't work quite right yet.
- More detailed location data.
- Many thanks go to Veekun for not only providing all the data but also the sprites. They're awesome =D
- The current stable (Beta 2) can be found at http://dex.victoryroad.net/
- The old Beta 1 can be found at http://dex.victoryroad.net/b1/ however is is not 100% working.
- The old Alpha 6 can be found at Crystal Islands.com. It may work occasionally where the beta's don't, but this is general not the case.

Project*V is Victory Road's own self-improvement and self-development committee. Started on October 31st, 2010, the project is indeed quite new and not entirely developed yet. However, the one sure thing is the one goal which it centers around: making Victory Road work better for its users. Indeed, the project itself is perhaps merely an experiment, but the goals have always been, and always will be, here to stay.
Currently, Project*V consists of six committees:
- Lead by FreezeWarp
- Other members include Jason_Henge and Cat333Pokémon.
- Covers VictoryBattles programming and design.
- Lead by FreezeWarp
- Covers the VictoryDex programming.
Victory Road Chat (VRC)
- Lead by Cat333Pokémon and KingOfKYA
- Covers the VRC, including the backend and client programming.
Victory Road Minor Improvement
- Lead by FreezeWarp
- Covers forum modifications and the arcade.
Victory Road Theming
- Not yet organized.
- Members include Cat333Pokémon, A'Bom, FreezeWarp, and others.
- Covers Victory Road theming, graphic design, and related work.
Victory Road Gym League (VRGL)
- Lead by Shadow, Sunny,The Spirit of Time, and Alakazamster.
- Other members include the separate gym leaders, and FreezeWarp for technical programming.
Each of these committees work together to centralize each project around VictoryRoad. When one project benefits they all do. As a whole, Project*V is lead by FreezeWarp with Cat333Pokémon and OMGITSJAD participating heavily.
More is always planned as its creators become more ambitious, as new creators join the project. Even if you're not the hardest workers, we are always in need to people to participate in the focus groups. Don't by shy to report a bug, make a suggestion, or start a project proposal. You could even lead one if it sounds good.

The first event includes reclaiming a Manaphy egg which was stolen by the Pokémon Pinchers. It is called 'Protect The Blue Sphere!' and can be played early in the game. When the egg hatches, the Manaphy will be at level 1.
The second event is called 'Deoxys and the Odd Temple', and is a multi-player mission. Only the host of the mission gets the Dexoys, which is at level 50 when sent over. The Forme of Deoxys which you receive depends on the time you take to capture it:
1 minute remaining = Normal Forme
1 to 3 minutes remaining = Speed Forme
3 to 5 minutes remaining = Defense Forme
At least 5 minutes remaining = Attack Forme (comes with an exclusive move, Meteor Mash)
The third and final event is called 'Investigate the Odd Eruption!', where you need to capture a Heatran in order to save tourists from a volcanic eruption. Heatran is at level 50 when sent over to another Pokémon game, and it knows the moves Eruption, Magma Storm, Earth Power and AncientPower.
EDIT: Shaymin mystery gift is out. It can change into it sky form. The event is called Rescue the Shaymin.

There has been some confusion as of late as to how infractions actually work. I decided it would make sense to detail just exactly how they work along with banning and so-on.
A warning is like a fraction accept it has a point value of "0". Points are largely arbitrary. They simply indicate the severity of what you did. At 0, it basically means "You didn't really do anything wrong, but still try not to do it again in the future". Think of it like a mod telling you inside the thread not to double post or whatever - we try to give warnings to not clutter up a thread and keep it between the receiver and the moderator.
An infraction is just like a warning except it carries a point value of 1 or more. The only different is that they sorta tell you did something wrong. A point value of one would be like jay-walking, where a point value of two would be similar to running a red light. Three would probably be similar to punching out a dude at a bar, four would be claiming an extra dependent on your taxes, and five would be like pulling a knife on a guy. I'd rather not go on to avoid being too graphic.
Infractions can have really no limit. As a joke I once gave a guy a 300 point infraction (care to raise your hand?), but that was the end of it. They don't limit what you can do on the forum, but may occasionally be used to determine if a user should be banned. Usually they aren't, though - they just tell a user they did something wrong and they shouldn't repeat their mistake.
A ban is what we give you when you have done something really bad or keep doing something bad. It means you can't post or participate in other community actives. Where an infraction is like a speeding warning, a ban is like jail time. Usually these expire after a week or a month, but it depends on the reason we gave it to you and other factors.
If you get an infraction, you really don't need to complain because it simply means "don't do it again". You don't lose any abilities on the forum and usually its just between you and the moderator who gave it to you. A ban on the other hand is something where, if you feel was ill-deserved, you should contact an admin via email. You can find those in our profiles. Of course, if you actually know you did something pretty obviously wrong, it might be better to just wait until the ban is over, which is the case most times.
