So I just found this lovely site the other day, and I'm enjoying it a lot.
I have a question though, I went to buy some pokeballs, and they used to be 95, but now they're $190? Why is that?
Also, how/where do I get great balls adn what not? I encountered a bunch of lugia yesterday but couldn't catch them because all I have are pokeballs.
Thanks in advance!

Hello and welcome to vdex!!!!

The pokeballs are cheaper when you join, just like the game. In the first 30 balls are half off but as soon as you buyb30 they become $200, however if you have Yun as your partner which I believe everyone starts with him, as you begin to max his affection he saves you quite a bit of money on shop items.

Also here: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=53
Is a great guide that can help explain things much better to get you started!

Hope your having fun and it's great to have you here! If you have anymore questions I'm sure other members and myself would love to help if we can! Best place to get a question answered faster is the help forum!

You're very welcome! And no worries it takes a bit of time to get used to things, I'm still learning to. I'm only 5 months old here. Lol. Um the help forum is in the virtualdex project board. It's located here: viewforum.php?f=9.
Hope you are able to catch some Lugias and ho-ohs this month for dex data!

Yeah, I actually found it after investigating the forums further.
Do you know if there's a place where people sell items they don't want, to other users, or trade pokemon or anything? I know you can buy the "secondhand" stuff from the shop, but I haven't had luck finding any pokeballs or anything.

Pokeballs occasionally pop up in the secondhand shop and heal balls. Most others don't to often unless a user needs some quick cash and doesn't mind loosing half of what they paid for the items or even more than half. So keep an eye out, there's occasional balls that end up in the second hand shop. But it's rarer for balls, then berries. Berries show up a lot more often.

Here is where members have personal shops and sell what they don't want, or are needing money and sell. viewforum.php?f=14
And like @choco7aco said the giveaway forums great for getting Pokemon and sometimes eventmon. You just won't get dex data for them.

Can anyone tell me where to get a trade pass thing? I was going to ask in one of the help forums, but it's so overwhelming, and I don't know how to get notified of a response? I clicked the check box, but I never get a notificcation? I've just been checking back to see answers.

Ah the trade pass you earn by getting the thunder badge. You have to have the bolder and cast are badges before earning the thunder.

The badges breakdown can be found here.
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=53&p=2757#p2757
After earning the first two and having caught 20 Pokemon and buying the trade pass from the shop (key items) when it becomes availble then you will be able to trade.

Where are you looking for notifications? If you subscribe to a thread it should email or pm you (not sure which way Shiro has it set up).

nevermind about the trade pass question. Someone answered on another forum (because I'm a derp and was trying to get a pokemon for trade from them before I found out about the trade pass thing. )

Awe well don't feel bad! The site takes a bit of time to figure out like every new game, so don't worry! It does take a week to get your trade pass but it will be a week before you know it!

haha, thanks! I've got the money in my bank now, so when I reach a week I can snatch one up!
It's definitely taking longer to figure out this site than it did for me to figure out Flight Rising (which is where I learned of this neat site!), but it's fun! I'm enjoying playing.
