    That's alright. Since no one has take any Rotational leader spots, everything can be done in Showdown. Well, except for SOME of my all-ins for the All-In Frontier. But since most of those are Triple Battles, I'm okay too. Just come up with devious strategies and gimmicks and have fun using them.

    Looking forward to seeing your team.


    And remember guys. This is all about FUN. We don't care for "standard plays" or "standard teams". Pff. None of that. Do something insane. Come up with gimmicks and combos.
    And adapt to your situations! Prove that you are capable of adapting to new threats, no matter how random they may be.

    Go ahead! Be the first to test out the Leaders' Funday teams (use the application form).
    And until more leaders apply, you can throw yourself at my All-In Frontiers too and see what kind of funky gimmicks I can throw together.

    I am BACK!

    So, has the league changed?

    Nah. Not a lot changed apart from the COMPLETE overhaul.
    Updated rules are on the first post.

    Vegetarian Funday Monday is where you are only allowed to have plant based items. Berries, Herbs, etc. Leftovers will not count. Ability Unnerve is disallowed for this topic.
    Mass Splash is a Double/Triple only topic where you are only allowed to attack your opponent with moves that hit multiple targets. So attacks like Earthquake, Surf, Rock Slide, etc. Moves like Bullet Punch, Drill Run, and Moonblast can NOT be used against the opponent. The move Wide Guard is banned for this topic.

    Time to try to spur some activity!

    Does anyone have a fun Pokemon/team gimmick that they'd like to share?
    Or some interesting Pokemon-related knowledge that could help us all out?

    I think the gimmickiest team I've ever used was a smash pass team with both huntail and goryebyss as well as Klefki to set up screens to make it easier to set up. Funny enough, I dont consider it anywhere near as gimmicky as the fun types of battles ive had on here.

    Also, I finished my team but i have two members who are weak to stealth rock (1 of which is x4 weak) AND I have to train a new member as I feel an offensive form of it would be better than its current defensive set. So please just give me until the end of the week. Its already bred just gotta train it and find a rapid spinner for wifi use. Preferably something easy to get ingame that is bulky so that i can rapid spin for 3/4th's of the match.

    Either that or Im just gonna use a defogger thats easy to get in game.

    A funny gimmick would be all HM moves only that would be a hilarious battle rock smashing each other. Just an idea as I have been absent as of late but I will definitley look forward to challenges. Also it would be best if I did these on PS as well because I don't have the time to train a bunch of new mon atm.

    I'm currently thinking of a gimmick team that involves basically stealing your opponent's stuff and using it against them. Imposter Ditto, Snatch, Me First, Mimic/Copycat, Trace, Thief/Covet, etc. "What was yours is now mine." I haven't thought of a viable way of bringing it into the battles. Imposter Ditto is pretty obvious and I have used it quite a few times in 1v1 situations, but never in a gimmick team.

    PS is fine, as it would give everyone the chance to test out a gimmick team without having to make it first.

    Nick Duckinson NYEH HEH HEH HEH!

    I'm actually having a hard time coming up with a Doubles Mass Mega team that's gimmicky and unexpected, so if anyone has any ideas that they wouldn't mind sharing, I'd appreciate it. I'll start breeding my Triples team soon, I came up with a pretty annoying strategy yesterday that will destroy anyone who isn't expecting it.

    I think the simplest gimmick you can pull off involves mind games.

    When you look at a team, you can guess which Pokemon is going Mega in a "normal/standard" battle. So use that kind of guess against the opponent! Load up your team with 6 Pokemon whose Megas are ALL threatening, and make the opponent keep guessing which guy is going Mega. THEN the real mind games can start. Such as... do you even HAVE a Mega Stone attached to anyone?

    A team composed of: Beedrill, Salamence, Garchomp, Tyranitar, Charizard, and Blaziken, for example. "Oh, the Beedrill is DEFINITELY going Mega." Nope! Charizard goes Mega and Blaziken suddenly gets Sun boosted Flare Blitz.

    All right, i am gonna do the NEVER attack funday monday for my gym.
    Beware, i love stall!

    Also, is taunt banned in this one?
     
  17. DX 2401PT

    DX 2401PT Monitor

    Yes. In "never attack", Taunt is not allowed. Otherwise everyone would Taunt and it'd be a Struggle fest.
     
  18. DJSummers

    DJSummers Ground-Type Champion

    That one would nee more rules, as in no Magic Guard, and etc.
     
  19. DX 2401PT

    DX 2401PT Monitor

    Yeah. Taunt, Magic Coat, and Magic Guard are not allowed. I'm not sure about Substitute. I don't want to ban too many things, but I don't want a certain move/ability to be spammed with no way around it either.

    Nick Duckinson NYEH HEH HEH HEH!

    Thanks DX but the thing I'm having trouble with is coming up with a team that works amazingly well together and is very difficult to predict. And I‘ll be definitely using mind games like those, but since this isn't singles, I need to have good teamwork and other tricks up my sleeve. The strategy I came up with for triples could work for doubles too, but I don‘t want to use the same tricks on both teams. Still, thanks for the help, I‘ll keep working on it.
