We are playing Pokemon Battle Revolution for fake money called Poke/Dongers.
You place a bet to join either Red Team or Blue Team and play with and against others.
In-Between matches we play the Sidegame, Pokemon Randomized Sapphire, for Tokens/Experience/Bailout Money if you are below 1000p.
Updated August 9th - It's the Off-Season! I hope to have this site ready to show by time the next PBR Season starts later this month (optimistically)
Most betters, even experienced betters, are betting way too low to make a good return on their time invested. This may be causing low better turnout.
On one end we have experienced players who will not work for a low payout. Who would?
Then, we have the average player who has a small balance and gets discouraged because of small returns.
I believe this can be fixed with safe, but ambitious, betting practices.
1. Bet early (bet within the first 30 seconds for a Betting Bonus)
2. Bet often (bet in almost every game to grow your balance faster)
3. Bet modestly (bet between 20-50% of your balance to improve returns)
All In (100%) is generally a bad idea once you're ranked. Matches that are truly unwinnable (Called a Print) are rare, so don't bet what you can't afford to lose!
When you are unranked (< p2000) you have little to lose, so go All In to get out of the hole quickly.
The minimum you should be betting is 200p, or the amount you get when your balance reaches 0 + Sidegame Bailout.
If you're betting that low you should bet as soon as the round starts; when it says The next match will begin in ..., as you have so little/nothing in 200-club to lose.
When betting higher, you should know how much you're going to bet by time the round starts.
Generally speaking, you want to bid about 20% of your balance if you are ranked/have a balance of 2000p or more.
Not sure what that amount could be? Here's a calculator
Just ask " What is 50% of Your Current Balance? "
Alternatively, you can just !Bet 50% COLOR
It's safe while offering a good return over time.
If you bet 200p at the starting balance of 1,000p you'd have to lose 5 matches to be 100-clubbed/bankrupt. That's not likely.
You can increase your odds of winning by learning the rules of the game and betting wisely.
Theorically, you can only bet 10% on Red Team or Blue Team and make money over time. I am going to try exactly that in a later season and record my results.
New players start out with p1000 and the minimal is p100 for free accounts and p500 for subscribed accounts.
If you are 100/500-clubbed (lose all your money) you can get more by inputting on the Sidegame minigame.
You will receive bailout money every Sidegame until you reach p1000.
Tip - If you're not sure what to input but want bailout money try Wait which does nothing if selected.
You may notice a % beside your bet when you bet. This is a Betting Bonus.
You can increase your winnings by up to 40% if you bet early.
Example: If you bet on a Team with 20% payout and 20% bonus, your winnings are multiplied by 40%.
If you have been 100/500-clubbed (lost all your money) bet as soon as the round begins for maximum bonus. You have nothing to lose.
Now that we've covered how to bet let's cover how to win.
1. Sidegame/Intermission: You have 30 seconds to input on the sidegame for a possible token and bailout money.
Currently, we are playing Pokemon Randomized Sapphire; a hack where all Pokemon use random moves.
If you are unsure what to put, use wait to do nothing!
2. Betting Phase: Typically 3-5 minutes depending on the betting song. Bet within the first 60 seconds for a Betting Bonus.
The command is !bet NUMBER COLOR
For example !Bet 100 Red or !Bet 100 Blue!
You can also bet in percentages; !Bet 50% Red
The sooner you bet, the higher your Betting Bonus will be.
3. Battle Phase: Typically lasts between 5-30 minutes depending on the match type.
Learn more about Battling on the Green Button above.
4. Results Phase: Shows the winner and the payout. Lasts about 30 seconds.
5. Break Phase: This usually happens 5-15 minutes past the hour for 4-5 minutes. Token Matches can be bid now.
The command is /w tpp match mode t#
Ends with a Sidegame/Intermission before the Betting Phase.
If no Token Match is bid, a regular match will play.
Playing PBR is a bit different than playing a normal TwitchPlaysPokemon Run.
You can check your Balance, Bid Music, play Pinball, and manage your Badges/Inventory anytime.
You can only do Sidegame Commands during the Sidegame Phase.
Here's all you need to know about Betting.
Singles is similar to your typical TPP Pokemon Battle. You just have to learn how to read the overlay.
Double Battles have you betting on and commanding two Pokemon at once.
A quick guide to betting Music for PBR, and my own personal playlist.
Betting Music plays during the Betting Phase after "a new match is about to begin!"
This usually lasts about 3 minutes, but some songs (Katamari on the Rocks and Remix 10) extend the Betting Time.
Warning plays during the last 30 seconds of betting, and lasts approximately that long.
In a Blind Bet match it is the only music played during Betting Phase.
Battle Music plays during the length of the battle.
Battles typically last for about 5-10 minutes.
Results plays at the end of a battle like a fanfare theme.
They usually play the first 30 seconds of a song.
This music plays during the hourly break that usually happens at :00-0:15 minutes past the hour.
It plays for about three minutes.
My name over on Twitch is Mobotropolis. People call me a lot of things.
Mob. Mobo. You. Idiot. You know.
Yes, I am female*. :|
I'm a Content Manager/Front-End Developer IRL who lives in the MidAtlantic Region of the US.
I started playing Pokemon before it came to the States. One of my older brothers brought back Red and Blue from a tour of South Korea. We used to guess what the attacks did based on their effects, and called the Pokemon by their Pokedex Number. I still have notebooks with some of my (mostly inaccurate) notes.
