Okay, the points are used to get graphics, Pokemon, and get ranked up to higher ranks. If you post, you get points, if you send PM's you get points, if you send friend request here you get points. Pokemon are legit, and traded over from the owner of the distribution center. James, you qualify for a graphic. After you use your points, they will be subtracted from your points total. So you can save up, post a lot, and then use them. Just make sure you meet the requirements for whatever your purchasing.
