Brave the Storm! A new Kind of League



Welcome to what will soon be the Toughest PO League on the Serebii Forums! – This League is very different from most leagues, as instead of Gym Leaders and Elite four using Monotype team, they will be using Global or semiglobal Effects – Now I know you’re wondering, - What the hell is a "Global or semiglobal Effect!?" - well basically, it is one of several moves that affect the entire battlefield, or most of the battlefield (think triples, where it affects one whole team) - things like Gravity and Trick room are Global effects, while other things like Entry Hazards, Screens and Safeguard are deemed Semiglobal
Anyway, due to this, The challenger doesn't have the advantage of getting to use more than one type - as the opponent gets to aswell! So as a consolation, you will get to choose 8 Pokemon to start your challenge, and then another 2 (debatable) when you challenge the Elite Four - This means that you may swap Pokemon between battles to compensate for varying strategies...

To go to these things, press “ctrl+F” and imput the prefix of the section

Rules
(1)​
1 - Follow all Serebii Forum rules.
2 - PO (Pokemon Online) is mandatory for the League. Wi-fi will not be played.
3 - No flaming, spamming or trolling.
4 -CounterTeaming (CTing) is strictly prohibited. If anyone has proof of CTing for a battle, the battle in question will be invalid.
5 - Team revealing is also strictly prohibited, do not reveal any Pokemon or strategy after battling a Gym Leader, Elite Four or the champion.
6 - You must always save all battle logs, otherwise any battle will be invalid if challenged.
7 – Smogon’s Standard OU Tiers are used, with some exceptions, please read “the Tiers” section (below) even if you know the banlist through and through
8 – Gym leaders and Elite four members must maintain a degree of activity, making sure they can accept most challenges. I reserve the right to replace or remove any Gym Leader or Elite Four member I deem inactive, you may appeal this, but if you are going to be inactive, make sure you warn me in advance. A substitute may be provided in your absence...

The Tier
(2)​
Because not everybody knows what Smogon’s Banlist is, I’m going to imput it here, with the addition of bans specific to this league. (yes, there are league-specific bans, deal with it)
Please note this is STANDARD OU - that means no unreleased Dream World Pokes - if you can't get it on the DS, you can't use it on PO...
Items
All unobtainable Items (Soul Dew, for example)
All items that increase Evasion (BrightPowder, Lax Incense)

Moves
All unreleased Dream World Moves
All moves that increase Evasion only (Double Team, Minimize)
All instant OHKO moves (Fissure, Guillotine, Horn Drill, Sheer Cold)
All moves that could counteract Gym Leaders or the E4: Sunny Day, Rain Dance, Sandstorm, Hail, Trick Room, Wonder Room, Magic Room and Sky Drop (Gravity Glitch)
(See "Abilities" for reasonings)

Abilities
All Unreleased DW Abilities (such as Sand Rush Sandslash)
Drizzle
Drought

Moody
Sand Stream
Snow Warning

(Now, before you go all “WTF” this has nothing to do with my skills in weather [I love weather teams] – I want Players to be able to experience Battling a Weather team without fighting it in a Weather war - This League is meant to challenge Trainers to extend them to new heights. Challengers need to learn in order to beat this league. As such, the Weather Summoning abilities are Banned for Challengers)

Gym Leaders
(5)​
The Gym leaders may be challenged in any order, but it is best you choose the leader with the least current challenges to start with. Gym leaders may have no more than 5 current challenges, so they don't get overcrowded.

The Elite Four is where the REAL test comes in place - you will have to battle them in order, and you will essentially have to fight the opponent in their home field, as all moves and abilities that change Weather are banned for challengers...

The Champion
(7)​
The champion will only apply to those who have defeated the League. When you defeat the league and the current champion (if there is none than woot) you may choose to become the Champion (suggested you accept :p) – you will keep the same 8 Pokemon you used to defeat the league, and when challengers defeat the league, they will challenge the current Champion in an attempt to overthrow them - even if you lose to the champion, you still will have defeated the league.

-Nobody-

Credits

Wacky Tabaky and Mireille for helping me decide on Gym Leader types (smogon)
Impo, for helping me set things in order (PC)
Neo Pikachu and Nolan Hero for the Banners and Userbars!
Complications and Wacky Tabaky for joining Serebii just to be a Gym Leader/e4 in this league!

^It's in the form, all the ones you can choose from

@both hail e4 candidates
you two will need to battle each other with a standard OU battle - no ubers, no unreleased dream world stuff. Whoever wins will take the spot! ^_^

@kyro12 - sorry, Genereat is unreleased. This is for standard OU, not Dream World. Please keep that in mind when building your team. However, don't forget you can have up to 8 Pokémon to make challenging the league easier...

@x_vand_x - the badges will be badge case size - think Northern Light's badges... I just need to find someone who can make them first ^_^
