    Welcome to The Battling Academy


    Here at The Battling Academy we do things a little differently. Our clan is not based off of any specific type of Pokemon, rather we have adapted the schooling system and run off that. The idea of the clan was born roughly a week or two ago by GM and Andrew, we put in lots of work to create something, that we find, rather unique. Our goal is to improve our members skills as trainers by teaching them techniques and ideas that we as battlers have learned through our numerous battles, which have resulted in many wins and losses. Below is the basic structure of our clan and how it is run, if you have any questions feel free to PM me or Andrew.

    1. Be Active, if you are inactive for two weeks and have not given me a reason, then you will be kicked.
    2. No Flaming.
    3. Be kind to all members of the clan and even members outside of the clan.
    4. Do not double post or spam within the thread, so NO conversations not relating to competetive pokemon or the clan
    5. Follow standard serebii rules for battling and always respect your opponent by acknowledging them after a battle.
    6. Applications must be filled in correctly before you are accepted. In addition, you must prove you will be an active member by being active for 4 days before being accepted
    7. You may only be in this clan and no other, THIS is standard clan forum rule, however I think it deserves a mention.
    8. Use smogon tiers for battling.
    9. You MUST include your signature pokemon and a pokemon from you region when participating in clan battles. If you do not, it will count as an automatic loss
    10. Do not pester the Leader about win/loss records etc. It's hard work, and I do the best I can. The odd asking for a tweak is fine, if you think I have made a genuine mistake, but repeated asking is not.
    11. All Clan Related Atwork must be authorised by me

    If you do not follow any of the above rules then you might get punished by being banned from the clan permantly or temporarily for a certain period of time after you have earnt a certain number of strikes.

    Memories Are The Only Things Which Are Truly Eternal

    Clan Information

    Here at the Battling Academy, students are divided into two Divisons: Juniors and Seniors. The Juniors are those members who are new to competetive battling and have joined this clan, primarily, to learn. The Seniors are the better battlers of the clan, who have joined the clan, primarily to test their skills and improve even further. The Seniors are the ones who will represent the Clan in Wars etc. Upon initiation to the clan a member may request a test battle in order to be placed in Seniors, if he passes, then he is placed in the first rank of Seniors. If the test is failed, the member may be placed in some of the higher Junior ranks, depending on his performance. Being placed in Juniors does not mean you will stay there, however, after you have reached the 4th Junior rank, you may once again request a rank up battle to be promoted. When you make the move from Juniors to Seniors, all AP and Win/loss records will be reset and you will have to earn the required rank up qualifications from scratch. (If you have AP that you wish to spend when you move, you may do so)

    Rising through the ranks of the Battling Academy will be no mean feat, but you are not expected to do this alone. By your side, at all times, you will have your most trusted partner, someone you have been through a great many things with: your Signature Pokemon. Here at the Battling Academy, members must choose a 'Signature Pokemon' this may be any pokemon providing it is usable in Wifi OU or a legendary pokemon. In clan battles you must always use this pokemon (so think carefully) however you are free to change it's moveset, nature etc. Each member may change his/her Signature Pokemon once, for free, if it doesn't work well. However any changes after that will cost 10AP, so choose carefully!

    Additionaly, at The Battling Academy, students are split into five houses. These houses correspond to the five regions of the main pokemon series: Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh and Unova. This house will be allocated to you by myself, when I accept you in to the clan, this is to ensure the numbers are kept as even as possible. Each house has it's own captain, who makes decisions regarding house challenges and wars.

    This house does have a restriction on what pokemon you use in clan battles, but it is a small one: you must use at least one pokemon that is found in that region and was also new at the time (so no choosing crobat in Hoenn for example). Please also note that you Signature Pokemon does not count for this. However the main purpose of these houses is for tournaments/wars within our clan. The various restrictions on teams are designed to improve your skills as a team builder.

    Each Month, each House strives to earn points by battling, winning tournament and doing jobs, and, at the end of each month the house with the most points wins the prestigous House Cup. The winner of this Cup gets their House Shield decorating the top of the BA's info posts!

    Weekly Pokemon Review
    Alakazam @ Focus Sash
    Ability: Magic Guard
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spe
    Nature: Timid/Modest
    - Psyshock/Psychic
    - Focus Blast
    - Hidden Power [Ice]
    - Energy Ball/Shadow Ball

    There are many revenge killers in the OU tier and many of them have advantages over Alazakam, but Zam's main stand-alone point is its ability to revenge things faster than itself. Allow me to explain: Thanks to Magic Guard, provided Zam comes in after a pokemon has fainted, will always enter on full health. As it has a Focus Sash equipped, Alakazam will always be able to fire off an attack, and often two, thanks to Alakazam's great speed. Thanks to Alazakam's great coverage, it can hit many pokemon Super-Effectively, missing out on less than 10 pokemon in the entire OU tier. Alakazam's fantastic Base 135 Special Attack means that these hits normally result in a OHKO. Zam's other advantage is that, by not running a choice item, is less prone to being trapped by pursuit-users, something that Scarf Latios can't lay claim to. All things considered, Alakazam is a great pokemon to act as 'glue' in the 6th slot of your team

    Ways To Earn House Points

    1) Win a battle against another clan member who is in a different house (1HP)
    2) Win three battles in a row against other clan members who are in a different house (2HP, in addition to the 1HP from winning the battle)
    3) For very 5 battles you win against other clan members who are in a different house you will earn (4HP)
    4) Reaching the following amount of AP: 5AP=2HP, 10AP=4HP, 20AP=6HP, 30AP=8HP, 45AP=10HP (and so on with every 15AP meaning 2HP)*
    5) Win a War Match (4HP)
    6) Being awarded 'Member of the Week' (4HP)
    7) Having a house member rank up in the clan (4+New RankHP for seniors and New RankHP for juniors)
    8) Winnng tournaments, both inter-person and inter-house (Varies)
    9) In a House vs House (see below) (Varies)

    House vs House

    Each house, as a chance to earn more HP, can have a mini-war against another house. If a House Captain wants his house to war another, then he may contact the House Captain of another house. If he/she accepts, the two House Captains will decide on tiers, bans etc. and also how many people each house should select to battle (either 3, 5 or 7). When two houses are in a House vs House, this must be posted on the tread before it oficially gets under-way. The House vs House works similarly to a Clan War with no matchups. Each member will battle another member from the opposing house, and post the results of the battle on the the clan thread. Whichever house gets the most wins, wins! When a house wins a House vs House, they receive 10HP, with a bonus of an extra HP for each point they won by.

    Those are the basics of a House vs House, please check the spoiler below for additional rules:

      • All normal clan restrictions for your team apply
      • A House vs House must end after 2 weeks from the confirmation date. If it has not been completed by this time, the winner will be decided from the current score. If it is a draw, a tie-breaker match will be done, the participants of which will be decided at random
      • No house may challenge the same house twice in a row
      • After a House vs House has been completed, the participant houses must wait a week before being able to challenge/be challenged again
      • Wi-fi team viewer must be used in any House vs House
      • When cofirming that a House vs House is starting, the House Captain may choose to 'wager' some HP (up to a maximum of 10). If the lose the challenge, that amount of HP is lost, but if they win, then they recieve double that amount of HP in addition to the HP gained for winning. Please note that a house cannot wager more HP than it has at the time.

    • Also, each house has a 'Stratagem' which is something, based on their respective region, that gives them an advantage while batting in House vs House. Note that your opponents will also be able to make use of their Stratagem, so you must learn to use yours to the greatest effect. Check the spoiler below for the different stratagems. Note that any rules strategems give ovewrite the rules given above

      Kanto: Oak's Expertise

      Professor Oak is a renowned Pokemon Professor. Anything he doesn't know about Pokemon, isn't worth knowing. He also started most pokemon trainers out on their journies, even ones that now make their home in foreign regions! As a result, Oak can give Kanto Members an insight to their opponents.

      At the start of each battle, the Kanto member may choose one of his opponent's pokemon. His opponent must then reveal that pokemon's moveset, item, EVs and nature.

      Johto: Mt. Silver

      Mt. Silver is the harshest, toughest most unforgivging place in the pokemon world. Tough Johto trainers go there to train their pokemon, and the harsh training they recive makes other pokemon seem weak in comparison.

      The opponent of a Johto house member in a House vs House must set one of his pokemon to lvl 90. If batting via Wi-fi flat, one pokemon must be set to lvl 45.

      Hoenn: Space Center

      The Space Center in Hoenn can launch probes to spy on their enemies, and to learn to their every move.

      Before the battle has even started (i.e. Before the opponents see each other's team via team preview) the opponent of a Hoenn member must reveal the identity of two of his pokemon, one of which cannot be his signature pokemon (just what the pokemon is, not EVs, moveset etc like Kanto's Stratagem)

      Sinnoh: The Whim of Arceus

      Arceus, the God of Pokemon, is known to watch of Sinnoh above all the other regions. If Sinnoh were to come under threat, he could influence the minds of other pokemon to sway the battles in Sinnoh's favour.

      When confirming a House vs House is starting, the Sinnoh house must choose 3 pokemon and their opponent house may not use those 3 pokemon in any of their House vs House battles. If it so happens that someone's sig pokemon is chosen, they can still battle, but must do so without the sig pokemon.

      Unova: Entralink

      The Entralink is a curious thing, allowing members of the Unova House to invade their enemies' worlds, and even disguise themselves as pokemon and therefore attack the enemy where they are weakest: behind their own lines. Sabotage is afoot...

      Anyone battling against someone in the Unova House in a HvH may only equip three of their pokemon with held items

      Recent HvH Results

      Kanto - 2 vs 0 - Unova
      Hoenn - 0 vs 2 - Sinnoh
      Johto - 2 bs 0 - Unova

      Note: There is no way to lose HP except for breaking rules.

      *If you buy somehting from the shop, the AP amount will not be reset for the purposes of calculating HP.

      Members and Ranks

    • Battling is key to almost every part of this clan, and ranking up is no exception. Here you must battle other members in order to qualify for a rank up, at which point you will battle an Assistant or a Teacher, however you do not necessarily need to win your battle to rank up. Here you are graded after the battle and your grade will determine if you qualify for your rank up. Below is a list of grades and how to achieve them

      A* - Win 5-0+
      A – Win 3-0 +
      B – Win 1-0+
      C – Lose 2-0+ ​

      If you do however fail at meeting these grade requirements, you can simply try again the next day. There are other ways of ranking up too, if a leader thinks you have done exceptional work for the clan by doing jobs, or if you win an inter-clan tournament are two examples. Below is a list of ranks members can achieve, and how to qualify for a rank up to the next level. Also next to your name is the House you are in.

      Rank up battles are against the leader or any tutor. You may only have one once a day, and must wait a week after ranking up for requesting another

      Special Ranks

      Special Ranks are so called for a number of reasons. Firstly, the only way to acheive one of these ranks is at the leader's choosing. Secondly, these ranks are held in addition to normal ranks, so one could be a Tutor and a Senior 3rd Year, for example. Finally, Special Ranks bring with them extra responsibilities within the clan. As such, you may decline a Special Rank if offered one. In the spoiler below are a list of Special Ranks and the duties that come with them.


      A Tutor has two resposibilities within the clan, tutoring anyone in the lowel level tutoring scheme and doing Senior Tests. Please note that, with Senior Tests, the battle video is sent to the leader, and he makes the final desicion on whether that person ranks up or not, although Tutors normally can be relied on to judge correctly. With Low Level Tutoring, each pupil is assigned a Tutor (see below) but with Senior Tests, you can have one from any Tutor

      Ace of Keys
      Ninja Dewott

      Shop Worker


      A shop worker is, obviously, someone who works in the shop. However, aside from this, he/she has other roles and slightly different rules. First of all, to qualify for becoming a shop worker, you must be able to trade the pokemon which you've donated to members who have bought them, so that means regular wi-fi access. One extra responsibility is becoming a sort of 'moderator' for the shop. For example, should someone request a pokemon that is reserved, it will be the shop worker's responsibility to tell them otherwise. For this reason, it is often a good idea for members to PM/VM a shop worker requesting a pokemon from the shop, especially if it is in their possesion. Finally, having a purchased cleared with a shop worker removes the need for me to check. Therefore, if it is clear with a shop worker, it's clear with me. To do this, the Shop Worker must check that the pokemon requested can be bought and that the buyer has enough AP (issues regarding the latter, however, must be cleared with me). Finally, instead of getting AP for donations as usual, a shop worker is paid a certain amount every week, or otherwise rewarded in other ways.

      --List of Shop Workers--


      All the other info such as points, banners etc will be on the next post. So in all I hope this will be a successful clan and members will have fun here.

    Tutoring = Get paired with a lower rank member to teach and help them out. Only Assistant + Leaders can have this job. Paid 3AP Per Pupil

    Artist = Create userbars/banners for the clan. All clan art must be approved before release, so it is generally better to wait for specific requests from the leaders.

    Please note that you can accept jobs from other members of the clan and still earn AP. After all, Clan Members must stick together! For example, member x could ask member y to EV train his pokemon and member y would earn 2 AP. This is of no cost to the member who has assigned the job. All of these types of requests must be confirmed (on issue and completion) by both members and then verified by myself or Andrew.

    Disclaimer - A note about legitimacy: I can 100% assure that all pokemon with my OT (Edward, a variation thereof, or Dunkers) are 100% legit. All other pokemon are, to the best of my knowledge, also legit, but I cannot 100% guarantee this. This is counting clones and RNGs as legit.

In the tournaments there are plenty of benefits of joining the tournament which include battling experience and many other factors.

    Welcome to The Battling Academy


    Events + Competitions

    Events are, well, events. Coinciding with real life events, such as Christmas and Easter, the Events section provides a pokemon-realted twist to the celebration, often leading to presents, presents and more presents! Below is an Event Archive, plus any Current Events.

    Current Competitions



    Welcome to one of the most important aspects of our clan: The new and improved Tutoring Scheme. Although this Scheme targets mainly new players, more experienced players may also get something out of it and learn a new trick or two, or perhaps a new tier.

    How does it work?

    Largely, the way in which your tutoring is done is mainly up to the Tutor. You can, via PM, be taught how best to build a team and also be taught all about cores, counters and the like. You may also meet on Pokemon Online, where you will have a battle and the Tutor will be able to say which technique you should work on (and teach you about it) and also say what you did wrong and what you did right. Each period of Tutoring lasts 3 weeks, although, if your Tutor believes you've done very well, he may cut it short.

    A Tutoring Season lasts 3 weeks, the first of which starts on January 3rd 2012 (Christmas may get in the way of tutoring)

    How to apply

    Before applying, you must first know what 'Level' you are at. Read the following, and see which most applies to you. Be honest!

    Level 0 - A complete novice to pokemon
    Level 1 - A complete novice to competitive pokemon
    Level 2 - I know about competitive battling, I understand EVs and stuff, but I have no idea how to go about being good at it
    Level 3 - I've done competitive pokemon for a while, I know about team building etc but I'm just useless at it.
    Level 4 - I'm pretty good at competitive pokemon, I just want to get better

    You must also place yourself in one of the following age groups. They're grouped to help hide your identity, should you wish so, but you should still be honest, so you can get along with your Tutor better:

    Under 12; 12-15; 15-17; 18-21; 21-24; 24 or over

    Once you've decided what level and age group you're in, fill in the following form.

    Tutoring Application
    Forum Name:
    PO Name:
    What times can you usually be on (in your local time):
    Highest ranking in chosen tier on PO/Smogon Server:
    Requested Tutor**:
    Age Group:
    Tell us a little about yourself:
    *Please make sure there is a Tutor who can tutor you in this tier
    **Leave blank if you don't mind. Please bear in mind we can't always abide to your requests.

    Once you've filled in the form, post it in the thread or PM it to me

    A bit about me:
    Hey, I’m Psycho Cut, the headmaster of this here school. Being a Clan Leader does deprive me of quite a bit of time, so I’ll probably leave the OU tutoring to the other guys, but I’ll happily take a tutee or two on board for 5th Gen Ubers. Although the clan has left me with less time, I’ve got a lot better at being a leader and organising stuff, which will realy show in my tutoring skills. I’m a normal school kid going through GCSEs (ugh…) and I’m interested in Athletics, Swimming (both of which I do competitively), Football (soccer to you Americans), Comedy, other Nintendo Console Games and Music (though none of that metal, rap or dubstep rubbish)
    Tutees: OrbrunnerX (Standard Ubers)

    Welcome to this Academy's library. Like all libraries, you're bound to find something new and informative to read. However, unlike normal libraries, you won't find anything boring like [insert Greek chap here]'s theorem, but will instead find excellent, interesting articles about our much-beloved competetive pokemon battling.


    Understandably, you're probably wondering why such a section exists, after all, Smogon have an excellent Analysis Section. However, this section is here, mainly, to allow clan members to contribute to the clan in ways they could not before. Even if you leave the clan, your legacy will remain in these hallowed halls for evermore, so other clan members may learn from you. There's a much better feel of community if you're learning from someone you know. In addition, Smogon won't have articles covering everything, so we hope to patch up some gaps.

    Of course, we are not attempting to undermine or better Smogon's Analysis Section. Indeed, such a feat is unlikely, but we hope to give the clan, and the competitive pokemon community in general, a little extra.


    Of course, there are rules, as always, rules to be followed. So if you are contributing, please read these!

    • Make sure it's good!
    Although we have a quality check team (just like Smogon's) we don't want to waste our time reading things of no competitive use only for them to be forcefully rejected. To help prevent this, don't contribute for the sake of it and make sure you've tested the set

    • Be familiar with the Process and Correct Format (see below)

    • Don't add something that's already been done here or on Smogon (or elsewhere, for that matter)
    Adding something that's already done is pointless, so make sure it is significantly different. The full set of smogon analysises can be found here. If you're using a set that, for example, featured in someone's RMT, get their permission before adding it and remember to give credit.

    • Use Good English, and English only
    English is the language of this site, and a contribution in Italian is not going to be as much help to anyone. Also, make sure your English is good and do not use slang words or idoms.

    • Make it interesting
    Contributing a good set is all well and good, but if it's really dull no-one will want to read it, give it some personality and flare. Try not to go OTT though. The same goes for custom set names. For example, calling a Shell Smash Gorebyss set "Smashbyss" is OK, but "SmashDestructorFish" is not.

    • Don't insult other people's contributions
    Feedback like "perhaps add X as an option over Y" is ok, but insulting another person's contribution or ability is not

    Article Specific Rules

    When writing an Article, there are a few more things you have to bear in mind.

    • Do not exceed 5,000 words

    • You may use more pictures, but do so sparingly

    • Articles can generally be written on any subject, but do not copy anything from elsewhere

    • Permission must be granted by the leader to begin writing an Article

    • Articles on one specific pokemon are not allowed, instead try to focus on cores, weather etc

    Correct Analysis Format

    Here's how a Pokemon Analysis Should be filled out:

    1) Title (if if is for a tier other than OU, state so here)

    2) Picture (optional)

    The picture should be of the chosen pokemon only and should not exceed 250x250 pixels, nor should it be repulsive or offensive

    3) The Set

    Here you include the actual set for the pokemon, make sure to use the correct format

    The correct set format is one you should be familiar with:

    Pokemon @ Item
    - move
    - move
    - move
    - move

    If there is a choice between one or two moves/items etc, seperate them with a forward slash "/". Avoid 'slashing' too many options.

    4) Introduction

    Here, you give a brief introduction about the pokemon perhaps explaining its unique traits or sudden rise/drop in usage etc

    5) Set Comments

    Now you talk about the set you are Analysing, why it works, what it's good for etc. Backing up your Analysis with Damage Calculations is a good idea.

    6) Team-mates

    Here you write about what compliments your pokemon on a team for example, rain support

    7) Checks + Counters

    Next, explain what counters your pokemon, i.e what can switch in or OHKO it

    8) Conclusion

    Finally, include a brief conclusion explaining why you should use this set.

    A good example of an analysis can be found here

    The Process

    This is the process which Articles and Sets go through, familiarise yourself with it!

    For Analysises

    PM the set to me(keep a copy of it). If I see that, at a glance, it is not complete rubbish I will allow it to be posted in the thread. I will then put a link to it in 'Limbo', found at the bottom of this post.

    In Limbo, other Clan Members can see the Set and can comment on it, along with possible changes. If the poster wants to bear in mind some of the changes, he/she can change the set (do not post again, just edit your original one). While this is going on, our Viability Check Team (VCT), who can be found further down in this post, will be able to view it. If they deem it of satisfactory quality, they can Pass it. If a set gets three Passes, it has made it through. (If a certain tier has less than 3 VCT members, you will need the maximum obtainable amount of Passes.

    After a set has made through, our Grammar + Spelling Check Team (GSCT) will make any alterations regarding grammar (sppf is an English Forum, so try to stick to English spellings). When 2 members of GSCT have approved any changes, the set will make it into the Library!

    *Note that a member of a certain team cannot authorise his/her own Analysis. If this means that less than 3 people are left who could Pass it, then the maximum obtainable number is needed.

    Article Rules Coming Soon​

    PO Name/FC: No PO, FC is sig.
    Starter Pokemon: Magikarp, though I don't understand what we need these for.
    GMT: Arizona time. I think it was -7 without DLS time....
    Battling Experience: When I started I wasn't very good. I didn't care about natures, IVs, or EVs, just moves and items. I tried a sun team, using hitmonchan and houndoom, and it failed. However, I still did stand a chance back then. At the battle frontier, I used a primitive subseed venasaur, not even aware of the term "subseed" and a Dragon Dance dragonite before I even heard of competitive battles and EVs.
    When the 5th generation came along, I had already become great at pokemon, I had even swept OU with regigigas. One of the first pokemon I trained was a gengar to help me beat the battle subway and get items such as the choice scarf(for my raikou and kyurem) and the focus sash(for gengar and yanmega). I don't let tiers hypnotize me, yet I understand why they exist and don't argue against them. However, I've been told I'm uneducated in the 5th generation. Upon finding this clan, I decided to join to help me catch up with the 5th generation all the way.
    Refered by: I got a PM from Andrew1239 requesting I joined.

    I have most of the power items and pokerus, and I've found multiple good spots for EV training. I would like EV trainer as a job.

    Also for the starter you need it in your team throughout rank-up battles, etc. Read the 1st page and you should come across it and understand it, if you still don't then i'll say it in more/less detail.
