Slurpuff's thirst for sweet, sugary blood happened.
Trevenant is good but would be killed by Toxic or any other Grass-type.
That sounds like fun, but I think that you should also change the whole league to try and appeal to more people. Since Funday Monday is the purpose of the league, why not try and make that the main theme instead of just a side project? You could have like 4 facilities, each with 5 leaders and specific rules like the ones you use in Funday Monday. For example, one facility could be UU only, Double battles and you're not allowed to use non-attacking moves. Maybe with some changes more people would join, I just feel like the league itself needs to be more original and fun like the Funday Monday. That's just a suggestion though, you can do whatever you want of course.Hey, it's Monday again. Funday Monday! ... Alphabetical Funday Monday! Submit to me a game where you must send out all of your Pokemon in species-alphabetical order!
There is a new facility that anyone can challenge any number of times. It is the All-in Frontier! I will be the leader of that facility. The rules are simple. The Pokemon usage rules are the same as Funday Monday. If you can use a Pokemon in the Battle Maison or OU, it's allowed here.
This frontier is really straight forward. I pick one battle strategy/gimmick, and I just go ALL-IN on it. You, as a challenger, must be prepared to face... pretty much anything that isn't banned by the OU clauses. Who knows what you'll run into. You might pack a whole ton of walls and suddenly end up facing a team full of Choice Band Moxie guys.
There are no penalties for losing. Or any real benefit to winning, other than "hey, I might just steal this idea". It's just for fun, and to show that there's more to battling than using what everyone else uses.

Also, Steel Gym is open and I'm available for Funday Monday, pm/vm me.
I do want to change the league by a lot. Like a complete overhaul. There aren't many active members so it won't be a big of a deal.
Funday Monday in the main league... I feel that it would just make the inactivity problem worse. Back when this league had a ton of active challengers, most of them didn't do Funday Monday. If the league itself requires Funday Monday rules, I feel that there just won't be any challengers, ever.
Edit: you know what? YOLO. The hell with it. League overhaul commencing!
We'll Funday Monday changes often and due to that, breeding new Pokemon for those specific reasons may not happen often. Plus I'm sure half of us just through together a team to use for FunDay Monday. Some were easy to think about, others let you see what someone else could pull together. Maybe getting a head up for the next weeks gimmick would help in building the new teams ahead of time.
But yeah, I've had no problem with it, I would have understood if some people had missed a week due to being busy, but that would just mean they had to partake in the next one.
Here's where the "YOLO, the hell with it" comes in. If the challengers want a standard-esque league, there are 5 others in this forum. For my league, it's time to go unorthodox.
The league will be divided into 3 parts. Single, Double/Triple, Rotation.
Each part will have 3 leaders.
Each leader decides a Funday Monday topic to use, and will use that topic on every battle. No two leaders of a part can use the same topic.
All challengers must follow the rules of the leader.
Challengers are free to change teams between any battle.
Challengers can challenge in whatever order desired.
If a challenger loses to a leader of a part, their challenge of that part restarts.
Funday Monday unique options:
- No swap
- Charge! Run away! (must swap every other turn, both sides at the same time)
- Alphabetical (all Pokemon must be sent out in alphabetical order, cannot be swapped out)
- Mass splash
- 1-Man team (only 1 Pokemon in the field can be attacking the enemy at any given turn)
- Clockwork (you must rotate your Pokemon every turn to the same direction you've rotated in turn 1)
- Jammed (no rotating under any circumstance)
Funday Monday generic options:
- Mass Mega
- No STAB
- STAB only
- YOLO (acc < 90 moves only)
- Only attack
- NEVER attack
- Mass Sp. Atk
- Mass Atk
- To BAAAAAaaaaattttllleeee.... (Spd <= 50)
- Never say die (Focus Sash/Sturdy only)
If a leader wants to change topics, they can do so with the hoarded league points that aren't going anywhere.
I haven't decided on the Elite Four equivalence yet.
I like this a lot, but Summers has a valid concern with the breeding Pokemon issue. If a challenger is almost done making his team to face a leader and that leader decides to change the topic, it could be very frustrating for the challenger.
League overhaul complete. The first three posts have been edited.
All challenger data cleared for overhaul, and due to inactivity.
