    Our spirit burns intensively when we battle! We play with passion! We strike like a wildfire! Welcome to the Ring of Fire!
    If you are a new applicant, be sure to read the entirety of this post for all the rules!!!
    ~ click on the banner to visit the guild's super spreadsheet ~


    This guild has a long and varied history, extending back to the days when guilds were known as clans, and when the concept of clans was first beginning. The clan was originally known as The Hoenn Triangle, and had many happy members who battled, traded, and had fun within their group. Years later, The Hoenn Triangle was disbanded due to some now-defunct guild rules (which is a bit sad) and one of the The Hoenn Triangle members, Mega Typhlosion (formerly Fire Hero), decided to start his own guild in order to fill the Dark Void that the closing of The Hoenn Triangle had left.
    Thus, The Ring of Fire was born. Some time passed, and Mega Typhlosion decided to pass the torch of leadership onto me, and that is where we are today.

    Here in the Ring of Fire, we try to make sure every member can find a way to contribute and to enjoy their time in the guild. We put an equal emphasis on the competitive and non-competitive aspects of Pokémon, with ample opportunities to contribute to either. We encourage all members to be active within the guild and we'll always try to make our members happy. If you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding anything guild-related, please feel free to PM either myself or the admins, and we shall get back to you as soon as possible.

    Inactivity Rules

    • Inactivity in this guild refers to a member posting infrequently or not at all.
    • Activity refers to regular participation in things such as guild battles, Spotlight Challenges, Guildmaster's Tasks, or even general discussion.
    • If the leader feels that a member has become inactive, that member's name will go red on the member list in the OP.
    • It is the responsibility of each individual guild member to check on his/her activity status via the member list.
    • If a member's name remains red on the member list for a prolonged period of time, that member will be removed from the guild and must reapply.
    • A member removed from the guild in this manner will be ineligible for re-application until the guild leader sees fit.
    • In addition, all MP, BP, Abilities, etc. the member earned will be lost.
    • If you PM the guild leader about your absence, the inactivity rules will not apply to you for a month.
    • The inactivity rules to not apply to you if you have the Golden Truant Ability.
    • The inactivity rules are in place to prevent guild members from joining the guild then remaining inactive indefinitely;
      as such, an on-topic and well thought-out post every two weeks generally constitutes activity.
    • Put the secret code "Blue Flare" somewhere in your guild application to prove you have read the inactivity rules.

    In order to consolidate guild information easily and effectively, The Ring of Fire possesses a "super spreadsheet," containing all relevant guild and member data.
    The "super spreadsheet" can be found here and will be linked several times throughout the opening posts.​


    i. Divisions

    ii. Points

    iii. Abilities

    iv. Join Avenue



    [​IMG]

    Here in the Ring of Fire, we have two divisions that you can join: the Bright Flame Division and the Dark Flames Division.
    The division you decide to join ultimately comes down to personal preference, as no one division is better than the other.
    The divisions exist in the event of inter-guild tournaments or some contests.

    You move up in the ranks by accumulating Magma Storm Points (MP).
    Some ranks will provide guild members with perks. The perks, as well as each division with ranks, are detailed below:

    There are 4 types of points in the guild:

    Magma Storm Points (MP)
    These points determine your rank. By accumulating MP, you rank up in the guild.​

    Blue Flare Points (BP)
    These points are the guild currency. You use BP for purchases in Join Avenue. You can also trade them in for MP.​

    V-Create Points (VP)
    These points determine your war team rank. By accumulating VP, your rank up in the war team.​

    Sacred Fire Points (SP)
    These special points are the rarest type of points, and the most difficult to obtain.
    SP can be substituted for any other type of point in the guild, for triple its original worth!​


    Certain types of points can be traded in for other types of points.
    In order to trade in points, simply PM the guild leader with the type and amount of points you wish to trade, as well as indicating the type of points you wish to receive in return.
    The trade-in value for points is listed below:

    2 BP 1 MP

    1 SP
    3 MP

    1 SP
    3 BP


    There are several methods of obtaining these points,
    which can be found under the "General Info" section of the super spreadsheet.



    [​IMG]

    Within this guild is a fantastic feature called Abilities, which function similar to Pokémon Abilities. These guild Abilities offer different benefits to guild members.
    Once a guild member reaches a certain rank, he/she will gain access to an Ability Slot, which can be filled with one Ability.

    There are two methods of changing an Ability:

    • You can pay 100 BP
    • You can change any Ability once free of charge upon every rank-up.


    The complete list of Abilities can be found under the "General Info" section of the super spreadsheet.


    [​IMG]

    In Pokémon Black 2/White 2, there is an area called Join Avenue.
    In that area, NPC versions of the people you passed by would set up shops.
    These shops would offer a variety of services, from Pokémon meals to Pokémon training to item collecting to Egg hatching, and many more.

    The Ring of Fire has its own variation of Join Avenue.
    In the Ring of Fire Join Avenue, guild members are free to set up shop in whatever Pokémon-related area they choose.

    Welcome to the Ring of Fire Competitive Corner!
    This section of the guild deals with all things battle-related, so if you're interested in some battles, this is the place to be!


    [​IMG]
    Battling can be done in any format (ie. Smogon OU, Smogon RU, Battle Spot Flat rules, Double Battles, etc.) as long as both Trainers have agreed upon the battle format prior to battle.
    Guild members will earn MP/BP for participating in battles, both for wins and losses (though wins will earn you more MP/BP). Double Battles will earn guild members even more MP/BP.
    After you battle, please post the following form:

    Code:
    Guild Battle
    
    Username:
    Battled with: [username]
    Winner: [username]
    Battle Format:
    Comments [if any]:
    
    Either battler can post the completed results form in order for MP/BP to be updated.
    If any problems ever arise (ie. an opponent posts incorrect information on a results form) please PM the guild leader/admins immediately.

    Welcome to the Ring of Fire Casual Corner!
    The idea of this section is to take a break from the competitive scene and have some fun inside our guild, with activities such as shiny hunts and pop quizzes.
    Whenever you see one of the casual corner icons around the guild, you know you're in for a good time!

    Guild members are free to post their own challenges in the guild, provided the challenges fit the formats of the activities below and the guild member PMs the guild leader for approval.
    Guild members can earn MP and BP for creating puzzles, as well as for completing them.

    [​IMG]

    This feature provides the guild with some fun and interesting Pokémon facts that competitive and casual players alike can enjoy!
    From time to time, a new Pokémon factoid or piece of trivia will be posted in the guild.


    [​IMG]

    In this feature, a simple phrase will be provided, with the ending of the phrase omitted. In order to help you discover the ending of the phrase, a series of questions will be provided. The question topics can range from the Pokémon anime to in-game details, characters, or events, and anything Pokémon related in between. Once you discover an answer to a question, fill the letters into the spaces provided. Several of the spaces are coloured red. The letters in these spaces make up the end of the phrase, but they are all scrambled. The first one to decipher the ending of the phrase using the letters from the clues will be declared the winner!


    Example:


    Q: The name of this guild feature is the Pokémon…


    1. The evolved form of Wooper: Q U A G S I R E

    2. Finish the drink trio: Fresh Water, Soda Pop, ________: L E M O N A D E

    3. Scraggy’s Japanese name: Z U R U G G U

    4. An item rarer than a Calcium or Carbos: P P U P

    5. Super-effective against Dark: F I G H T I N G

    6. The Water-type Sinnoh starter Pokémon: P I P L U P

    7. Finish the trio: Uxie, Azelf, _______: M E S P R I T


    Q O Z U I P P


    PHP:
    QThe name of the new guild feature is the Pokémon…

    A
    _ _ _    _ _ _ _


    If you think you've got the answer figured out, please PM WhyBuffet using the following format (with your answers filled in):
    Code:
    1. 
    2. 
    3.
    4.
    5.
    6.
    7.
    
    A: 
    

    Please PM the answers to the creator of the puzzle, rather than posting them in the guild.
    This ensures that everyone gets a chance to guess without having the answer spoiled for them.


    [​IMG]

    It’s another guild feature… The Pokémon Crossword Challenge!

    This feature is fairly self-explanatory… A Pokémon-themed crossword will be posted in the guild. All you have to do is use the clues to complete the crossword.
    The first one to submit the correct answers may receive prizes.

    As always, be sure to PM your answers to the creator of the puzzle.


    [​IMG]

    In this feature, a picture will be posted in the guild under the above banner.
    The pictures will come from Super Smash Bros for Wii U, and will contain Pokémon themes (like Pokémon characters or taking place on Pokémon stages).

    All you have to do is come up with a caption for the picture, and you could win fabulous prizes!
    Any captions submitted will be evaluated on:

    ◊ Humour
    ◊ Creativity
    ◊ Cleverness

    Please PM any captions to the creator of the puzzle.
    The winners will be announced a few days after the picture is posted.

    This is where the real action happens! This is the Ring of Fire War Team!
    ~ please note that all war team-related battles will be Smogon OU ~


    Welcome to the Ring of Fire's war team section. One of our primary focuses here at the RoF war team is obviously to get into wars with other guilds and come away from those wars victorious. However, the war team's purpose goes much deeper than that. Within this war team are all kinds of Trainers; battle-hardened veterans who have been in the competitive scene for years, and wide-eyed greenhorns who have just joined the competitive side of things and want to try and better themselves. Whether young or old, skilled or novice, the RoF war team accepts all kinds of Trainers and turns them into the best possible versions of themselves. So what are you waiting for? Sign up now!

    Ah, but I am getting ahead of myself. Before signing up to the war team, perhaps I should take a moment to explain how things work around here. The RoF war team possesses an innovative feature for war teams: a ranking system. This war team ranking system is similar to the guild ranking system, and its purpose is to promote participation in, enjoyment of, and commitment to the war team and its functions.

    There are 6 war team ranks in total, and they are loosely based on military ranks: the officer, ensign, lieutenant, and commander ranks are normally attainable ranks, the captain rank is a special “second-in-command” rank, and the admiral rank is reserved for the war team leader. Below is a list of the obtainable war team ranks, as well as current war team members:


    [​IMG]
    Officer (Torchic Rank)
    Rank Earned at: Beginning Rank



    [​IMG]
    Ensign (Darumaka Rank)
    Rank Earned at: 25 Points



    [​IMG]
    Lieutenant (Combusken Rank)
    Rank Earned at: 50 Points



    [​IMG]
    Commander (Darmanitan Rank)
    Rank Earned at: 100 Points



    [​IMG]
    Captain (Blaziken Rank)
    Rank Earned at: 200 Points



    [​IMG]
    Admiral (Victini Rank)
    War Team Leader

    WhyBuffet

    DJSummers

    LynxForte

    Mr. Y

    Hakallowin

    Young Xehanort

    Mikazuki Marazhu

    DSGAMR

    Shade2000

    The Captain Rank is a unique rank. The captain is the "second-in-command" of the war team, taking on the admiral's duties and responsibilities in the event the admiral is unable to do so. Similar to the Admiral Rank, there can only be one war team member with the Captain Rank, and the title goes to the first war team member to work their way up through the ranks and earn the position. Let this serve as a motivator to participate in guild and war team functions.


    War Team Application

    If you wish to apply to the war team, simply fill out the application below and post it to the guild. You will then have a test battle with either the war team leader or an admin.
    In order to accommodate everyone, the test battle can occur on either PS or wifi, applicant's choice.
    Please keep in mind that you do not necessarily have to win your test battle to get on the war team. The test battle is simply used to gauge how experienced you are at competitive battling. If either the war team leader or an admin feels that you still need some practice, you will be asked to gain a little more experience in competitive battling before attempting to re-apply.
    Please also keep in mind that both the war team leader and the admins are always here to offer as much competitive support as they can.

    Code:
    Username:
    Division:
    Friend Code / PS Username:
    Timezone:
    Competitive Battle Experience Level? Novice/Veteran
    Preferred Battle Method? PS/wifi
    Would you be willing to battle in a method other than your preferred battle method, if necessary? Y/N
    Availability for testing:

    The Ring of Fire is affiliated with the Competitive Cross Battling League, a league where team building skills are put to the test.


    Click here for the Competitive Cross Battling League Main Page!

    Click here for the Competitive Cross Battling League Chatroom!

    Click here for the Competitive Cross Battling League Spreadsheet!


    The full details of the CCB League are on the CCB League main page, but in a nutshell, Trainers are to pick a Pokémon to act as their "mascot" within the league. The mascot must remain the same for all teams that a Trainer utilizes within the league. In addition, there is a limit on the amount of OU Pokémon permitted on a team. Construct the best team you can and challenge away!

    It is not mandatory for Ring of Fire members to register as CCB League challengers. However, there are benefits to being both a guild member and a challenger.

    When you win against a Gym Leader in the CCB League, you earn a badge. All badges you earn are recorded in the CCB League spreadsheet. Guild members are free to trade in any badges earned for BP. The trade-in value for badges are as follows:


    Gym Leader Badge = 25 BP
    Victory Ace Badge = 50 BP
    Elite Four Badge = 100 BP​


    However, once you trade in a badge, you lose that badge and will have to re-earn it if you wish to have a complete collection of badges.
    It is therefore up to the guild member to decide if he/she wants to risk trading in a badge that was perhaps difficult to earn.

    Any Challenge Rule missed will lower from your Total Score of 5MP & 5 BP.​

    You are allowed to do whatever you want now, any battle style, tier, etc.

    As for the Theme, that is completely optional. Themes would go by MonoGen, MonoColor, Monotype, Fossil Team, Eeveelutions, and whatever other theme you could think of and use. Now as for points, for any Theme used on a Team, I will provide an EXTRA 2MP & 2BP!

    Also remember, you can now gain points for posting a complete battle using the Spotlight Pokemon.

    Bounty Board

    The bounty board will work like this;

    A pokemon will be listed as "Wanted" and you must battle this pokemon and complete the challenges to go along with it to earn points. Each challenge completed with earn 3 MP and 3 BP. If you complete all challenges, you will earn an additional 3 MP and 3 BP.

    The challenge could look like this:
    [​IMG]
    Challenge 1: This pokemon must use Will-O-Wisp (it does not have to land the attack)
    Challenge 2: You must status this pokemon
    Challenge 3: You must KO this pokemon with a supereffective move
    Challenge 4: This pokemon cannot KO any of your pokemon (a pokemon cannot faint from status set by Rotom-W)
    Challenge 5: You must win the battle​

    Each bounty will have 3-5 challenges.

    This new feature also comes with a new ability; Bounty Hunter. The Bounty Hunter ability can only be obtained if you have completed 3 bounties IN FULL. Meaning, if a bounty has 5 challenges, you must complete all 5 challenges to complete a bounty.

    The Bounty Hunter ability will allow you to do 1 less challenge, but still receive points for the one additional challenge. For instance, in the example above, if you complete challenges 1, 2, 4 & 5, your Bounty Hunter ability will complete challenge 3 as well, thus giving you all points. You must complete at least 1 challenge for the Bounty Hunter to take effect.

    The Bounty can be complete on WiFi or PS. None of the challenges will require you to battle in a certain format. It can be Singles, Doubles, Triples, Rotation, Battle Spot. Honestly, if you're battling in the Battle Maison and are able to do the challenges, it will count. With that being said, your first submission is your only submission. Make sure you complete the form to go along with the Bounty.

    Bounties will be posted every Sunday

    Happy Hunting Space Cowboys (Free Internet Points for those who get that reference)

    Occasionally I will come up with a mini-challenge that everyone in the guild has a week to complete.

    The mini-challenges for Guildmaster Tasks can be anything and everything, from using a particular Pokémon on a team, to an impromptu shiny hunt, to completing a specific Pokémon-related task, to successful winning streaks... The only limit to these tasks is the guildmaster's imagination :)

    The rewards for completing said tasks are also limitless, from large MP / BP / SP payouts, to 5IV Pokémon, to items, to challenger's choice... It all depends on the task!​




    Good work! We were able to show that Zoroark who's boss! Way to go!

    *rustle rustle*

    Huh? What's that in the bushes?

    [​IMG]

    What's this? A wild Zorua appeared! That Zoroark must have been looking for its baby!

    In this Guildmaster's Task, you are to complete "Zorua's Challenge."

    "Zorua's Challenge" works exactly the same way as "Zoroark's Challenge," where Zorua will disguise itself as another guild feature, with a twist!

    This week, Zorua has disguised itself as the guild CCAT, only instead of a Pokémon CCAT, it's a Gym Leader CCAT!

    The Gym Leader CCAT will be a top 5 list of Pokémon's toughest Gym Leaders. Each guild member can nominate one Gym Leader for the CCAT. The guild member must provide a picture of the nominated Gym Leader, as well as in-depth reasoning as to why this Gym Leader deserves to be on the top 5 list. Doing this will earn a guild member 15 MP/BP. The deadline for nominations is Thursday, May 19

    On Thursday, May 19, voting for the top 5 list will begin. Each guild member will have one vote for which Gym Leader should be considered the toughest. You cannot vote for your own submission. Doing this will earn a guild member 5 SP. The voting will close on Sunday, May 22

    If less than 5 submissions are posted, the CCAT will change from Top 5 Gym Leaders to simply the Toughest Gym Leader.
    If there are few votes or a tie, I will be the tiebreaker.

    To see a list of the nominated Gym Leaders, click here.

    Accepted. I'll add you to the breeders list. Do you have any restriction regarding what you can breed? Can you PM me a list of the Pokémon you can breed? (or the Pokémon you can't if it's easier lol)

    Accepted! Welcome to the guild and have fun ;)

    Accepted. Hope you enjoy your time here ;) Can you PM me a list of what you breed? Just so people won't start asking for stuff only to be denied because you can't breed that particular Pokémon.
