Q: My VIP list has different colours for different people such as, red, yellow and green. What do these mean? A: These colours indicate the 'status' of your friend. Red = Busy, Green = Online/Active and Yellow = Away from Keyboard/Inactive if they've been idle for over 15 minutes.
Q: Will I get banned if someone else uses the same IP as me? Or the same device? A: Of course not. We do not lock people for having the same IP or using the same device. You are perfectly safe to log into the same device, or share the same IP. We do lock people for sharing accounts however. Only one account for one person. So with that logic. While there could be ten people at your house and using the same computer, we would never lock you for that alone. Now if there was ten people only using ‘one’ account, that’s when we would lock! Or if one person had ten accounts, that’s also a lockable offence! Please read the Rules. If you have any questions, please contact a Moderator. If you’ve accidently broken one of our multi-account rules, contact us in support – we’re very understanding! If everything goes smoothly you’ll be back on your main account after a brief chat. We respect honesty.
Q: Is Phione a Legendary? A: Phione's status as a Mythical is disputed even when concerning official sources. For the sake of simplicity and gameplay, we don't consider it to be a Mythical, just the offspring of a Legend. [Source] - Phione - Mythical Status

Q: What are 'Accessories' and what do I do with them? A: Accessories are items that are used to dress up Pokémon, they can be found by sending your Pokémon on Scours.
