I have a question about how to do something on the forum.

Check the Forum FAQ before asking your question.

When do eggs hatch?

Regular eggs that you adopt from Professor Birch or the Daycare will hatch between 5,000-10,000 steps. Special monthly eggs will all hatch on a specific date, regardless of their level.

How do I increase the number of steps that an egg has?

Click them, or have people click them for you.

How do I get a lot of money fast?

Clicking your own and other peoples Virtuadopts is the most consistent way to get money. You will normally gain between $1-$4 with each click, and on Tuesdays you can gain $1-$8. There is a slight chance to win $1,000 from the slot machine every time you level something up as well.

When do my Pokémon evolve?

If it evolves by level, it is random, just keep leveling them. It will be somewhere between 50 and 200.
If it is a Pokémon that requires a stone, you need to buy that stone and use it, and if it is a Pokémon that required trading, you need to trade it. Some Pokémon require equipping of a special item, and then trading.
There's more on that here

How do I add more boxes for my adoptables?

In order to add more boxes, visit the Pokémon Center and hit "Access the Control Panel." Here you will be able to create new boxes, edit the box names, and re-order the boxes.

Can I post my adoptables on other sites?

Yes, and we encourage it! As long as the website you are trying to post to allows adoptables to be posted, that is. However, the only external Click Exchange currently allowed is Yarolds, due to complications with other people using automated clickers. You can also use Virtuadopt’s own on-site click exchange.

How do I post my Virtuadopt on another website?

Click on the Pokémon in your PC you want to put somewhere and copy the code that looks like this
Make sure you are following all of the other site’s rules before you post your adoptable!

How do I put my adoptables at the bottom of my post like other users?

Click on the adoptable you want to add to your signature and copy and paste the Virtuadopt code.
Then, on the forum, go to User Control Panel > Profile > Edit Signature
Finally, just copy and paste the code into the box and hit submit.

Someone is asking for my Virtuadopts in exchange for money/a currency on another website/anything not on Virtuadopt. Can I trade them?

No, you may not trade Virtuadopts for anything other than things on the Virtuadopt website. If someone asks you to do so, please report them as it is not allowed at all and most people who do this tend to do it over and over again.

How can I get the password to Team Rocket's Hideout?

Every time you click a Virtuadopt, you see the slot machine at the bottom. Every so often, you have a chance to win additional money, additional mart items, and even those passwords, which you may exchange to special promotionals at Team Rocket's Hideout.

I clicked like a billion adopts today. How come I haven't received a promo!?

The exact chances of receiving a promo from the slot is a secret, but it is very low.

Why is Pokémon X/the special form of Y not available yet?

Patience is a virtue. We are working on adding the rest of the special forms.

Will there be gender differences?

Currently we are not planning on adding any gender differences other than the ones already present.

What is a Custom Adoptable?

Custom Adoptables are special Virtuadopts that belong to the staff members. They are distinguished by the crown-shaped "Custom" medal on them. Only they own the adoptable, and no one else on VA has the same one. There are currently no plans to allow regular members to have custom adoptables. There are also some fake custom adoptables out there that other users have displayed in their signature, but these are not part of the Virtuadopt database and are not real custom adoptables.
