• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

Yes Conk is female. Also, you did well, its only because serebii was screwing up and it caused miscommunication. At least it was solved when i took us to SPT's Xat

Yes there was miscommunication, but my dimwitted mind is still to blame for some of the stuff. I'll stop whining now xD Fighting gym should reopen tomorrow at some point for anyone interested.

  3. Trinity League Battle Frontier


    ALL TRINITY LEAGUE GENERAL RULES APPLY

    Battle Trainer Rules
    1) In order to challenge the League, fill out the application and copy-paste it directly into the thread. (if you haven't already to challenge Gym & E3 Leaders)
    2) The Trinity League Battle Frontier offers Battle Facilities with Frontier Brains, in which Trainers have to defeat them under special rules in order to earn their Symbols. While the Trinity League is a Wifi exclusive League, the Battle Frontier offers a niche for Pokémon Showdown trainers with Wifi as a voluntary alternative. (Please refer to Smogon's Tiers to inform yourself of what is legal in which tier)
    3) Badges are the League's primary form of accomplishment, while Symbols represent an alternative form of mastery over certain battle modes. Symbols, thus, do not filter in the overall Ranking, or Champion, system, and are to be seen a parallel to Badges.
    4) The Battle Frontier does not operate under the League's Triad system; therefore, each Frontier Brain is to be challenged individually and under the respective Facility's set of rules.
    5) Battles are always 6vs6 Battles, and the Facility rules always follow some form of Smogon Tiers (i.e. UU, NU, RU, Doubles, Triples, etc.).

    Frontier Brain Rules
    1) Every member of the League must post at least once a week to show activity, and be open to challengers at least once every two weeks. If you will be away for a certain period, be sure to let me know.
    2) If you cannot comply with 1), you risk having your post closed and/or replaced.
    3) If you need to leave or would like to “temporarily retire” you may re-apply for your position when you return.
    4) Once challenged, you as a Frontier Brain are obliged to carry out the challenge and may not decline for any reason other than: Illegal Pokémon. Decline matches only if your opponent has a Pokémon that is not part of the Facility's respective tier.
    5) A match cannot be declined beyond your first turn. Forfeit in the middle of the battle once the match has been accepted results in a Challenger Win.
    6) As Frontier Brains you must be familiar with your Facility's special rules and have a team only using eligible Pokémon.
    7) Unlike with Gym & E3 Leaders, Frontier Brains should not register an opponent's team and, instead, only post it with the Battle Result.
    8) You may switch your party members at any time as long as rule 6) is kept.
    9) Anyone may apply for open Frontier Brain positions. For the Battle Frontier, I will approve applications personally on a case by case basis.
    10) You can decide entirely over how to accept a re-match. You may have Battle Trainers either wait a week, or be asked to gain another Symbol before asking for a re-match.
    11) Please always use your Frontier Brain Userbar in your signature, as well as your Symbol. Always copy this in your sig for credit purposes:

    Frontier Brain Application Form
    To apply for an open Battle Facility position on the Trinity League, please fill out the form below & post it directly into the thread.
    Please make sure you read through all the rules stated above carefully, in particular the Frontier Brain Rules, before applying!
    Once a Frontier Brain application has been submitted into the thread, I will pick the Brains for the respective Facilities personally on a case by case basis.
    If a Frontier Brain wishes to "temporarily retire", any other Frontier Brain can instantly step in as an interim Brain (to gain experience with another battle mode, for example) by posting the application into the thread. It would be best to have an interim Brain for not too short of a period (i.e. 2 weeks or more). In that case, the position will temporarily be filled until the regular Brain returns and reclaims their post.[/LEFT]

    4. "Start F{ro}m Eevee" Tournament Announcement:

    "START F{RO}M EEVEE"​

    • After the Homage to Hoenn and MultiChrome tournaments, we're celebrating our newest addition to the Trinity League - the Battle Frontier - with a unique tournament concept inspired by the Battle Sanctuary! The Start F{ro}m Eevee tournament will tentatively take place on either Saturday/Sunday, July 12th/13th.
    • Please fill out the following questionnaire to help us know when most people are available for the tourney. Remember, it's GMT 0 time! ( check here for reference: GMT 0 time).
    • On the day of the tournament: Click here to read the few but important posting rules for "signing in".


    For the upcoming "Start F{ro}m Eevee" tournament the theme centres around our Frontier's Battle Sanctuary. The rules will be the following:
    1. Wifi tournament with tournament format: 4 or 5 rounds on Multilevel format (so no knock-outs; everyone has the same number of rounds)
    2. General Smogon Rules & OU Tier or lower (so no Ubers!)
    3. not more than 1 Legendary allowed
    4. "3+2+1" rule: Each individual player must carry (legal) Pokémon out of the following three categories: Starters/Formes/Eeveelutions. Each player may choose their 3, 2, and 1 from these categories (in any order).
      1. Starters are any of the Grass/Fire/Water Pokémon from the core Pokémon games (Raichu would not count even if Pikachu was the Yellow starter).
      2. Formes are Pokémon that actually change battle strategically depending on the form (Vivillon, Gastrodon, Unown, etc. therefore are not strictly formes).
      3. Eeveelutions are Pokémon that evolve from Eevee.
    Prizes will be announced.


    Q: Do I have to be a registered Challenger of the Trinity League to participate?
    A: No, anyone is welcome to join our casual Tournaments - registered Challengers, Gym Leaders, and non-Trinity League members alike. The more, the merrier! :)

    Q: If this tournament is a Battle Frontier inspired tournament, will it be a simulator tournament?
    A: No, Trinity League casual Tournaments are part of the overall Trinity League, not specifically the Battle Frontier. Therefore all Trinity League Tournaments are Wifi Tournaments.

    Q: What is the "3+2+1 rule"?
    A: It means that 3 members of your team have to be from one of the given three categories, while 2 yet from another of the remaining categories, while yet 1 more member has to be from the leftover category. So for example, you may have 3 Formes/2 Starters/1 Eeveelution, or 3 Eeveelutions/2 Formes/1 Starter, etc. etc.

    Q: Are Mega evolutions allowed?
    A: As long as they fit into one of the categories (i.e. Starters) and are not part of Smogon's Uber tier (i.e. Blaziken), then yes Mega evolutions are allowed.

    Q: How many rounds are there, and are there knock-outs?
    A: In most cases, there will be at least 4, or if necessary sometimes 5, rounds. Since the tournament pairs people beyond the first turn by wins (meaning, you will likely be paired with someone of equal wins), there are no knock-outs and everyone plays the same number of rounds! For this tournament we do not do best 2 out of 3 in a round, only one round of 6vs.6.

    Q: How long is a round?
    A: Once pairings for a round are posted in the tournament tab of the googledoc, you can go ahead and PM/VM your opponent to add their FC & begin the battle. A battle should take no longer than 20 minutes, so please determine a winner by the end of those 20 minutes together (or otherwise take the exact score, for example: 3-2).

    Q: What do I do after the first round?
    A: Simply UPDATE your first "Signing in" post using the Special Battle Result Form (in the OP on p. 1) and wait patiently for the tournament host to announce the next round. The tournament tab of the googledoc will list pairings when they have been determined.

    Q: Can I switch out a member of my team, or an item, a move, etc. after the first round?
    A: No, you cannot! The team you enter the first round with (moves, items, etc. included) may not be changed until the tournament is over. It is encouraged to list your opponent's team in the special battle result form (once the first round is completed).

    Q: I have to leave, but the tournament isn't over yet. What do I do?
    A: Even if things aren't going well for you in terms of battle results, please stick around until the end of the tournament out of courtesy for the other participants and also for your own enjoyment! If you absolutely need to leave, please mention that at the end of your UPDATED "Signing in" post.

    Q: What are the prizes?
    A: Each tournament features 3 prizes, which will be announced in advance before the tournament begins. There are 2 featured prizes of which the 1st place winner may choose one from. The 2nd place winner gets the other featured prize. A third prize will be randomly distributed amongst the other participants. (only participants who have played all rounds, or all rounds except for one, can be considered for this prize)
