Games General / Pokémon you never used to use, but now you love
« on: December 31, 2013, 16:27 »
Everyone has them, those pokemon that you ignored on your first run through and when you played that game again you added them for some random reason and now you love it - so what are yours?

In my current run through SS, I'm loving Quagsire! I only got it to cover Meganiums grass weakness, but it's doing amazing and it's really cute xD

A fair amount of interest seemed to spark at the suggestion of a Pokémon League for this site, and so here it is. At first, this will be a simple set of eight "Gym Leaders" but if interest is high enough and this proves successful, then an Elite 4 may be added, and possibly even another set of eight gym leaders (Similar to Kanto and Johto in GSC/HGSS). So, allow me to introduce the:

What is it?

The Gym Challenge is (or will be) a set of 8 members as the gym leaders, which challengers may battle in an attempt to earn their gym badge. Any member can apply to be a gym leader, although people applying must remember there's quite a bit of commitment involved.

Cool, how do I become a gym leader?

Glad you asked, as all eight gyms currently available have been taken, you must win your way into the league. To do this, you must collect all eight gym badges and then you will kick the bottom person off. The only exception to this is if you want someone else's type, in which case you may kick one of the bottom 4 off and take their type.

Okay, you mentioned a 'Gym Thread', what's that?

A gym thread is the place where you keep all the rules for your gym and where challengers can arrange a time to battle you. This thread must answer the following questions about your gym:

-> Single, Double, Triple or Rotation battle?
-> How many Pokémon? (Minimum 3, Maximum (surprisingly) 6)
-> Are Mega Evolutions allowed in your gym?
-> Which clauses are in effect? (e.g. Sleep Clause, OHKO clause)
-> Which Medium are you using? (Wifi or Simulator, if simulator which one?)
-> ROUGHLY what times can you battle? (Preferably in GMT because that's kinda the neutral time)

They should also contain any other rules you wish to enforce, following these guidelines:

-> Any ban on a pokemon must be justified - You can't just ban Quagsire because your team with all electric moves can't beat it.
-> If you ban any weather, you must ban all weather (this is to avoid Water Gym Leaders banning Drought, Snow Warning and Sand Stream but leaving Drizzle unbanned and stuff)
-> If possible, avoid banning a pokemon when eliminating OP things. For example don't ban Talonflame, ban Gale Wings - Don't ban Kangaskhan, ban Kangaskhanite.

Optional things that would be nice:

-> Gym Badge image to recognise those that beat your gym
-> Trainer Sprite for your gym leader

IMPORTANT EDIT: One pokemon in a gym leaders team may be a type other than their own. No people with crazy volkner teams please.

I wanna be a gym leader but someone took my type

You can do one of two things - choose a different type or wait till all eight gyms are taken and collect all eight gym badges. Once you've collected all eight, then you get to knock a gym leader of their spot, but only one of the four lowest ranking ones (ie the ones with the worst Win to Loss ratio)

I think that gym leaders banned something that shouldn't be banned, what should I do?

Post it here on this thread, and the other gym leaders and I can come to a conclusion on whether we believe it is indeed an unfair ban.

This gym leader is never available

Whilst most gym leaders will endeavour to fulfil battle requests, time zones and life can make this difficult. If a particular gym leader is very rarely taking requests then we may have to remove his gym leader-hood. Of course, this would only happen if it was ridiculously common. We recognise that sometimes unexpected things will happen in life, and so if you really need to leave for a few weeks, your gym leader position can be held for a maximum of 6 weeks, as long as you say in advance.

Current Gym Leaders

Hahex and Oshawott - Water - Thread here
what the heck come after six??? - Electric - Thread here
Liam - Ground - Thread here
Richard and Blaziken - Fighting - Thread here
Awkward Squirtle - Fire - Thread here
Spriter - Steel - Thread here
ShinyBlaziken2000 - Dark - Thread here
aMartini607 - Flying - Thread here

Another Important edit: Any threads that are linked to here are accepted and so the gym leaders can accept challenges whenever they're ready.

Instructions for challengers

Unlike the games, these gyms have no set order, so there's no need to collect the badges in a specific order, although once the gyms have been running for a while I will put up an order of how hard they are based on W:L Ratio.

As a challenger, your team just have two pokemon that are ALWAYS in your team. They must beat every gym with those two pokemon in your team to win the league. Edit: As was brought to light later in thread, the two pokemon you are keeping the same must be PMed to me BEFORE the second fight (because before the second you've only had one team anyways)/edit. Your other 1-4 (depending on the gym), however, may be changed from gym to gym. Why must two stay the same, you may wonder? This is because gym leaders are locked into one type, so it's incredibly easy to counter them, however if you have only 4 spaces to do this it makes it a little more level of a playing field.

To earn badges, you go to the gym's thread and challenge the leader. You must beat them in a battle by their rules. If you succeed, they'll grant you the badge, if not then don't worry, you can arrange another challenge.

Random Randomness / Your weird habits
« on: December 11, 2013, 19:57 »
Good evening, you bunch of weirdos (love you all really), just a random thought I've had - what random/weird habits do you people have?

I think one of my oddest would be that I almost always stand on one foot whilst combing my hair - I'm really not sure why =/

Fake Whatever / Mega Xerneas/Yveltal
« on: December 09, 2013, 22:13 »
Basically a thread to post your ideas for Xerneas and Yveltal megas and to comment on others if you want ^_^

Either post images or the mechanics - or both if you have enough time / want to.

For Xerneas, I think I'd go something like:
126/131/95/131/98/99 -> 126/134/110/180/110/120
Typing: Fairy -> Fairy/Ground
Or possibly a new mechanic where it's Fairy when defending but Ground when attacking - that could be interesting. Also, when mega, Geomancy gives +3 rather than +2 (to compensate for the inability to run power herb)

And for Yveltal, I think something along the lines of:
126/131/95/131/98/99 -> 126/140/100/200/100/114
Typing: Dark/Flying -> Dark/Flying (no change)
As Geomancy got a boost, it's only fair that oblivion wing should too. When in mega forme, oblivion wing has the option to either be Dark (thus getting dark aura boost) or flying (thus getting different coverage) type.

Any other ideas? Or improvements?

Random Randomness / Happy 18th Birthday Nate!!!!
« on: November 30, 2013, 01:02 »
Yeah, today is the day Nate (Lugia95) into an adult - god help us - and I think he deserves a topic for it ^_^

This is where I attempt to make a nice speech type thing and fail, soooo...

Nate's an awesome guy to have around on the forums - whether you could speak to him anytime or not - and he makes the place more lively (I think there's been a massive drop in post count this week whilst he's been preparing for the day! xD) and he makes everyone laugh with his well-timed (and often annoying  :dry:) sarcasm. He's a great person, and I wish him a really happy birthday. Although lay back on the drink Nate - you know you can't handle it...

Wireless Activities / X & Y Battle Thread
« on: November 10, 2013, 11:51 »
So, X & Y have been out around a month now and it seems a majority of people have beaten the E4 and started breeding or training their teams or whatever they do, so it seems like a good time to make a battle thread.

Basically anyone who likes to battle real people as a bypass to the unfortunate lack of post-game can post here in an attempt to get a battle. Just post your Friend Code and the formats of battle you play (e.g. Single, Double, Triple etc.)

Legacy (Nate) Singles/Doubles - 1392-4780-2443
RubyRobin (Richard) Any Format - 3566-1602-6874

Trades / [X & Y] Marvel Scale Dratini/Dragonair needed!
« on: November 06, 2013, 22:31 »
Hey, as the title says, I'm looking for a DW member of the Dragonite line. Not fussed on nature and IVs, I'll breed it anyway. Female would be preferable but not essential. They're available in the friend safari, just unfortunately no ones that I know xD

I can offer a few things:
-> 31/31/?/31/?/31 Naïve Bagon (With Dragon Dance & Hydro pump - Male and Female available)
-> 31/31/?/?/?/? Super Size Pumpkaboo (evolves on trade - Brave Nature)
-> Larvitars (with a few perfect IVs, mainly 0 Speed though)

That's pretty much all the special stuff I have - although I do have every starter so I'll happily breed them too!

I tend to be available for trades 4-10pm GMT Monday-Friday and like 10am-midnight on weekends!

My FC is 3566-1602-6874

Because we all love counting, I thought we need a more eventful topic!


Keep counting until someone is silly. unfortunate enough to mess up the count! (I promise I'll improve my counting!)

Basically, we need to try get each other to screw up! If someone deliberately screws up, it doesn't count.

But. Every 100th poster can change the rules slightly... They choose one of:
-> Start counting in 2's
-> Every 5th poster must take 2 off the count
-> Start counting in 3's
-> Every other person keeps the number the same
-> Every other poster adds 2, not 1
-> Start counting backwards
-> Convert the count to binary
-> Convert the count to Hexadecimal
-> Every other post alternates the base (e.g. binary, hex, decimal)
-> Every one adds the root of their first post on the thread rounded up
-> Go back to counting in 1's

Sound fun? Good.


1 - 3F = 63

Start counting in 1's
