I think the "counter type" should be... I don't know. Clarified? Updated? Like, if a type resists the Gym's STAB, then it leans towards a counter type, but if that type isn't super-effective against that Gym type at the same time, I think they should cancel out. Like a x2 and x0.5 at the same time. You just get 1. Bringing Water to Steel would count Water as a counter type, since Water resists Steel, but Steel doesn't resist Water. Which would also mean that Dragon isn't a counter type to Dragon. You'd bring a type that's weak to that Gym type's STAB, while at the same time you brought a type that has STAB super-effectiveness against the Gym's type.
But then there are pokemon who despite having having the best type matchup don't actually do so well because of the sets it can run.If someone brings up a Magikarp I can hardly call that a counter to Steel.

Well, it's the type that's important. The challenger would naturally bring in the best counters within the defined counter-type. I mean, it's not like anyone would bring in Deliberd for a Dragon Gym.
People battle with whatever they want.By that logic I would've only battled Heatrans, Landorus etc.
I think the best way to handle counter teaming is to leave it to a third unbiased person to decide such things (likely someone in charge of the league).And they should look beyond the types but also consider the moves.Bringing a Ground type to a Steel Gym gains no advantage whatsoever if the pokemon lacks a Super Effective move.

Additional Comments(be polite): Excellent game o/ Great team building. My team had no answers at all. Enjoy the Intensity Badge!


So here's a brief explanation of what it means to counter team a gym type.

The challenger is allowed to bring up to three pokemon that type counter the leader's main pokemon type. A counter means...
- A pokemon that has a super-effective typing against the gym leader's type.
- A pokemon that has resistant typing against a gym leader's type.

Let's use Lelantos Steel type as an example.
Say this is the team line up to face his team. (Charizard, Magmar, Infernape, Pikachu, Magnemite, Azumarill)
The said team is a counter team because it contains 5 pokemon that act as counters. Fire is super-effective/resistant, Fighting is super-effective and Electric is resistant.
Azumarill doesn't count as a counter because even though water is resistant, fairy is not and thus it takes neutral damage.
Steel is also considered a counter because it is resistant to the steel typing.

So you want your team to only carry three counters. Here would be an acceptable team - Charizard, Pikachu, Ferrothorn <=(Your counters for the type), Gengar, Porygon 2, Sceptile <= (Non Counters)

Your Pokemon moves do not determine if they are counters or not, so you could pack Focus Blast on all three of your non-counters.
So that's the brief explanation of the counter system.

Additional Comments(be polite): Closer than the result may lead to believe but at some moments it felt as if just losing one pokemon would cost me the match hence why I played so carefully.All things considered it was a great battle!

Go team Steel!

Its fine but yeah just because I haven't made the userbar or updated the doesn't mean it was barely manged which I had burn doing the updates on the spread for me until I had time to edit not sure if you knew that XD by the time I was going through the leaders that were inactive I wanted to make sure everyone intreasted so I messaged every leader that wanted to keep there position but you didn't have a response so I thought something happened. I was pretty busy at the time and plus on top of being sick on and off working 32 hours a week too does it. I just didn't have anytime to get the userbars done and add you sorry for the confusion. I just want to say though no worries I was pretty much on and off alot thats why but I should have the userbars done for everyone tonight as well as just message me your userbar trainer sprite and favorite psychic mon.

Edit: alright all userbars are all set for current leaders besides zombie so zombie once you message me about your userbar stuff it should be done when I get spare time again to get it done but you are added in as psychic gym :3

also as well leaders that haven't applied yet there are frontier facilities still need to be filled if you intreasted in any frontier apply now first come first serve ;)
Sorry I didn't know any of the personal things you had going on. I'll be sending you a PM right now.

hey sito welcome to the league and same as I told zombie which he already messaged me about it just vm me your trainer sprite and electric pokemon you want on your userbar.

My bad (I thought it sounded like an ad too). I'll be careful. And the donation would have to be cancelled, since both Moltres got taken. Now only Ho-oh, Entei, and Mewtwo are left for RNG in HGSS, and I doubt they'll be used in this league, given how two of them aren't allowed. I'll donate other stuff if I get the chance.

Oh, and a quick question. Do Steel types count as "counter type" when facing Steel type Gym? Or any type that resist itself, like Fire, Ice, Grass, Poison, etc (because they resist the Gym type's STAB)? And similarly, do types that are weak to themselves count as "counter types" as well?
its cool just wanted to let you know :p and alright just let burn know. I also want to let you know that anything and everything would be consider a counter like type weakness,resistance,not effective and stab would be a counter to a gym. If you encounter someone using alot of weakness you are aloud to denie a match but it seems I may have to put a counter rule soon if it becomes to much of a hassle for you leaders if the challengers are not understanding what to much of counter is if you know what I mean.
