Myuu is a Pokemon Discord Bot that’s a biiiit different from your usual ones. Unlike PokeTwo, and PokeRealm which aim to be Pokecord clones and PokeMeow which tries to be its own thing, Myuu works to replicate most of a real Pokemon game experience complete with gym battles, regions, throwing Pokeballs, and lots and lots of battling (perhaps even, too much)!
The bot advertises itself by saying you just use .menu and don’t need to memorize any other commands…but there’s a bit more to it than that. Here I’ll run through all commands in Myuu and how to make the best use of them. I’ll also explain the strategies you’ll need to win the game!
Myuu Guide Updates
You can support me and my guides monthly on Patreon (and score some rewards like cute cat pictures)! The more I earn the more time I can spend on improving guides like this. My PayPal is a thing too if you can’t do monthly subscriptions.
Myuu is not like Pokecord. Pokemon will not randomly spawn. Instead, you’ll use the .menu to travel to different routes (try .route 1) and battle pokemon to level up. You can also throw Pokeballs to try and catch Pokemon. Use the Bag & Items menu to buy new Pokeballs and the Box menu to manage your Pokemon.
Your goal is to unlock more of the world to catch and battle Pokemon in; Gym Leaders unlock 3 more routes after being defeated and defeating the final Gym in a region unlocks the next one.
Battles are simulated pretty accurately to real Pokemon, closer to Pokemon Showdown than PokeCord—but probably still not quite as accurate. IVs, EVs, natures, Status Effects, Items and more are all accounted for.
Where to play Myuu
Myuu can be played in it’s official server or by inviting the bot to your own server. Just type .menu to start a tutorial for how to play and battle. Tell the bot in the tutorial that @SirTapTap#3775 sent you for a bonus! Then you may use .pksetup to define its channels, if using your own server and don’t want it to spam up a chat channel.
There are basically three main things to do in Myuu: Catch and Breed Pokemon, Battle NPCs to progress the game, and Battle Players. You’ll need to battle NPCs no matter what to unlock major regions, and battling players you’ll mainly want to do in the main Myuu server (it’s hard to find players otherwise—also, if that’s all you want, Pokemon Showdown is probably a better choice).
The first item you want to buy (other than some pokeballs) is the EXP Share All. You could be able to get it around the 5th or so Gym depending on your voting and daily streaks. The EXP Share All will greatly reduce grinding which is crucial; you’ll be grinding one set of 6+ Pokemon every region.
If you want to complete a region’s (kinda) Pokedex, it’s best to go route by route using ;routeinfo # to see which Pokemon you’ve caught at each. You can start at route 1 and use a False Swipe Pokemon to help you catch each Pokemon along the way. ;pokedex is broken and shows Seen Pokemon as Caught, as does the in-battle menu. Only ;routeinfo and ;pkinfo accurately show you if you’ve caught a Pokemon.
The best way to catch Pokemon is the same was as normal Pokemon: False Swipe to get HP down to 1, Thunder Wave or another Paralysis inflicting move to raise Catch Rate, then spam Pokeballs. Normally more expensive balls would be recommended (and they work here too!), but the price differential plus the relatively miserly amount of money Myuu bot gives you, it’s best to spam normal Pokeballs especially as there are no roaming legendaries etc.
Forms, Dynamax, Gigantimax and Mega Evolutions do not currently exist.
Eggs and Breeding work much the same was as normal Pokemon, though eggs appear to only hatch by a certain number of battles taking place. This makes Eggs a bit of a pain and EXP drain too (as they steal a party slot for which your EXP Share is useless).
Eggs take dozens of battles (looks like around 100 or more?) to hatch and I strongly recommend avoiding breeding too much, Pokemon can only be used in 1 region’s gym battles anyway and the effort is just not worth it.
Text commands can be directly used to skip using the .menu feature. For common actions this can save a lot of time. For clarity, I’ll run through the commands in the way the game presents them through the menu.
Most actions only work on Pokemon in your current team. Pokemon are referred to directly by name unless stored in a box, in which case they’re referred to by their box row/column combination like a1 for the first slot. Only one Pokemon of each species can be in your party, probably due to the refer-by-name thing.
Voting gives you a 1 hour 2x XP boost (reported at the top of the battle screen), a few diamonds and PKC based on your voting streak. It’s best to focus your grinding against wild pokemon in this one hour window! The game is pretty grindy otherwise. I recommend getting an EXP Share All and Lucky Eggs as soon as possible. By Gym 6-8 their cost should be pretty easy to absorb.
All commands related to your current battle team of 6 Pokemon. Use these to prepare for battles.
Releases a Pokemon on your current team. If your boxes are full and you have lots of duplicates, this will help you save on space if you don’t need the extras.
