Within Vuldan City is Gladiatore Stadium, a massive amphitheater made of steel and concrete and stretching out over seven hundred feet at its widest point. Built in an elliptical shape, there are several booths at the several "participant" entrances, handling the registry of Pokémon trainers who wish to publicly battle for prize money. The trainers are then handed a number and instructed to enter an underground facility to await their signal. At the green light, they step onto a platform, and are lifted into the main stadium where many other battles take place around them in other fenced in battlefields. Challengers are welcome to stay as long as their Pokémon can handle it under the stares and thunderous noise of the cheering spectators around them.
Betting In the Gladiatore Stadium[edit | edit source]
Players may bet on tourneys in the Gladiatore Stadium twice every month. Each tourney has three matches, and players can elect to keep betting at the cost of potentially losing their won money if they bet incorrectly, but with the possibility of a huge payout if they bet correctly.
- Payouts start with a base of 100 spruzzo supplied by the stadium. If you're feeling lucky, you can bet more of your own money!
- Every tourney's participants will have listed odds of winning, such as 1:4 or 1:10. This represents how much your "earnings" will be multiplied by if that participant wins. For example, a participant whose odds are 1:2 will multiply your winnings by 2, and one whose odds are 1:10 multiply it by 10. The higher the payout, the lower chance that participant has of winning.
- A random number generator will be used to determine the winner of a tourney. If you bet correctly, you can choose to keep the money or move onto the next round, where the process repeats with your current prize money as the starting bet for this next round. However, if you lose, you cannot bet in that tourney's matches.
- If you lose in the first round, you get all of your bet money back, including the 100 spruzzo supplied by the stadium.
- If you lose in the second round, you get 1/4 of your prize money.
- If you lose in the final round, you get 1/2 of your prize money.
