    Welcome, one and all, to
    POKEGYMS REBORN!
    Pokegyms is OPEN for business! Happy battling!!!​

    The Pokegyms league was one of the first and longest standing leagues on the Serebii forums, and now it has returned! We welcome all battlers old and new to our league, please review the rules below~

    General Rules:

    -Please follow and obey all the main SPPF rules
    -Pokegyms is a Wifi league that uses pokemon Sun and Moon.
    -Pokegyms generally follows SMOGON OU Singles rules. Pokémon that are banned for challenger use are listed in this smogon post.
    -Leaders and e4 members of this league are permitted to use a single Uber or non uber of their type, or a "Totem", with exceptions (no Primals, no mega evolutions of legends) Leaders must make their Totem known to challengers, a list will be compiled for challengers to see.
    -In order to defeat a gym leader, you must defeat that leader's totem pokemon. If you defeat the totem, you win, regardless of the score (ex: if you defeat the totem pokemon, and you have 1 pokemon compared to the leader's 5, then you still win).
    -If you encounter a problem within the league, please feel free to contact me (dragontamer44722)
    -Gym leaders and challengers are responsible for posting the results of their battles in this thread. When appropriate, update your posts, do not double post. (post another message right after you posted another)
    -Challenges can be arranged via pm/vm, or through the chat when it is available.
    -Do NOT disconnect during your battles! If you are found to be doing so on purpose, you may be banned from the league. If you have connection issues, please state this before the battle.
    -Do NOT use pokemon that have been hacked (Pokesav, Pokegen, illegal traits given through At, etc) Anyone found to be using pokemon with any illegal trait may be banned.
    -Make sure to have fun!

    Challenger Rules
    -In order to sign up for the league, please fill out the challenger application posted below.
    -The Pokegyms league consists of 8 gyms and 4 Elite 4 members. You can battle leaders with different teams every time so long as the team does not carry more than 3 pokemon super effective or resistant to that leaders type, ie Counter Teaming (ex: a team of Diancie, Mimikyu, Lapras, Cloyster, Blastoise and Raichu is considered a Counter team to Dragon, so it could not be used.)
    -Challengers of the e4 must defeat all members of the e4 with the same team, and may not change their pokemon team at any time.(items, evs, nature, attacks, forms and ability may be changed) However, the counter teaming rule does not apply here.
    -Challengers may not fight the e4 until they have defeated all 8 leaders.
    -Challengers are responsible for knowing what the totem of each leader is (a list of them will be provided). Do not start a battle and then say midway that you didn't know what the totem was.

    Leader Rules
    -Leaders must show activity within the thread by posting and opening their gym at least once a week. Anyone who does not open their gym within a month will be removed from their post.
    -If challenged, please confer with the challenger to set up a time to battle. You may only refuse a battle if the challenger is using hacked pokemon/has a counter team.
    -Once a battle starts, you must finish it. A battle that results in a DC is void unless the leader and challenger agree that a winner was clear. Ties will always be a loss for the challenger.
    -Leaders must use 4 pokemon of their given type, and 2 pokemon of any other type. The leader's totem may be any pokemon of their type with some exceptions (see general rules for exceptions).
    -Totems must be the leaders type (if a pokemon mega evolves into your type it will be accepted as long as it mega evolves the turn it comes in. Also, your totem pokemon, if it mega evolves, has to remain your type. For example, if you are the Flying leader and you have Altaria as a totem, you cannot mega evolve it as it loses its Flying type upon evolving)
    -Once you become a leader, your selected Totem must be made known to me (dragontamer44722) so that I can compile a list of them for challengers to use. If you decide to change your Totem, I must be told, and the change will take effect the next day. Should you win against a challenger and be asked for a rematch right after, you cannot change your totem pokemon. The remainder of your team, however, can be changed.
    -Leaders must be able to battle in Singles under normal rules.
    -Anyone may apply for a leader position, but I generally ask for a test battle beforehand to determine if you have a solid grasp of battling and your selected type.
    -Please use your userbar in your signature if you are able. If it does not fit, please use your badge or have something that indicates your position in the league.

    Elite Four Rules
    -E4 members, like gym leaders, are permitted to use a single uber pokemon, or "totem", but the same limitations apply (no Primals, no mega legends)
    -Like gyms, you will know the E4 totems ahead of time. However, you must defeat the e4 members ENTIRE team to win.
    -To challenge the E4, you must obtain 8 badges from the different gyms.
    -The E4 may be challenged in any order, but you must defeat them all with the same team (ivs, nature, item, etc, can be changed, but the pokemon species may not)
    -Because your team cannot change, the Counter Team rule does not apply to e4 battles.

    i will try my best to get it done by February 17th but no promises since I have to breed a new team up now since new pokemon and bank is out ^_^

    I rate the banner 3/10 Not enough Alolan Exeggutor. Also, my team should be done soon, still breeding a Turtonator and waiting on an Adamant Belly Drum Aqua Jet Marill. I assume all of the leader positions are full?

    Actually no they aren't. We have, if I remember correctly, 5 or 6 permanent leaders for the time being, with 2 e4 members taking positions until permanent leaders are found.

    yeah most of the leaders I think went inactive if you want to be a leader that would help mega :D also wroking on my team soon which trying to whip up a team not just for here and trinty but random doubles team just to get those mega stones for the new global tournament coming up >.>

    I doubt I'll be able to construct another Fighting team, although I do have a Rock one in the making that I'm almost done with.

    Water and dragon have both been taken I'm afraid. Pm me to get what types are still available, or check the op in a few hours to see what is there.

    I'll be doing some minor changes to the op as the day goes on, including announcing what leaders we have and what types they are. Userbars are not yet made but they will be coming soon.

    Has Rock been taken? And also should I send my leader application now or wait until I have all of my Pokemon ready?
     
  17. dragontamer44722

    dragontamer44722 Pokegyms Owner

    Rock is free, and if you think you'll have the team assembled by Feb 17th then feel free to apply now.
     
  18. MegaMeganium

    MegaMeganium Dropping Bloom Dooms

    I should have it done by then. Still in the process of getting what will be my totem, but everything else is good.

    Welcome back :3 Once you know what your totem will be send it to me via pm or vm so I may take note of it.
