What is the League Challenge?

5 members of PKMN.net make up the Pokémon League. 4 are the Elite Four and 1 is Champion, just like in the games, and they all use a (mostly) monotype team. Unlike the games, they don't stand in one room all day and actually have lives, so they won't be available all the time.

Information For Challengers

Fill out the following form:
Code: [Select]
Challenger Form

[b]Name:[/b] (preffered name to be addressed by)
[b]In-Game Too?:[/b] (Is your team also available to battle over WiFi?)
[b]Available Times:[/b] (What days and times are you usually available to battle? Please use GMT)
[b]Constants:[/b] (Which two Pokémon will remain the same throughout your challenge)
[b]Challenge Progress:[/b] (Which E4 members have you beaten so far? (Note: should be empty at start))

Before challenging ANYONE. If you do not, your win will count for nothing regardless of circumstances. Your challenge will be reset when you lose, so this form will need editing.

When challenging, make the initial post on their thread issuing a challenge, then you will be PM'd by the E4 member to work out a time. Don't post again on the thread unless it's acknowledging a good game or whatever, but don't just post to sort out times. If their inbox is full, then there's an exception.

You can battle the E4 in any order, but the Champion (Richard) comes last.

Links to threads

Champion - Richard
Elite Four - Jamie
Elite Four - Spriter
Elite Four - dragoncat
Elite Four - bread

Getting a place after Applications end

After all places are taken, you must beat all 5 current league members and each member must have battled AT LEAST 5 times before you can kick them. If this is so, then provided you have at least 200 post count (to ensure you're somewhat into the site as a whole) you may kick the bottom person and either take their type or choose a new one.

League Rules

For Members:
-> 5 Pokémon must be your type, or just 4 if you are champion
-> You must have a written out banlist. Links to Smogon are NOT a proper banlist.
-> Trainer Sprites would be nice, and if you can't sprite I would be happy to attempt one for you.
-> You can change your team as often as you want but MUST have a signature Pokémon that doesn't change (see Cynthia's Garchomp)

For Challengers:
-> The challenger form must be filled out
-> Once you lose, you must start from the begining (As in, once you lose once you must beat all leaders again)
-> Your team can change between fights, but must have two constants that are on your form.

~~~

Okay, that's the rules so far, might be edited if something else comes to light, but I think that's all we need for now. As for why it's now an E4 not a gym challenge, I simply felt having less members would make it more competitive and therefore more active. It's difficulty now with losing resetting your challenge will hopefully also keep it active ^^ Any questions can either be posted on the thread or PMed to me, either is fine.

Just a quick update;

Firstly, thank you to all of you who've applied, I already have some idea who seems best, and as we haven't had a new entry for over 24 hours, I will announce that a verdict will be made at some point tomorrow afternoon (noon exactly, if my plans permit)

Edit: Note, entries ARE still being accepted

Secondly, for a bit of feedback on each so far;

Richard - Everyone knows you have both dedication to the site and skill in battle, although your strength can sometimes be off putting to people challenging.

bread - Although I've never had the opportunity to properly see how well you battle, you clearly have a decent understanding and I know you try to fulfil requests quickly.

SB2K - That replay definitely didn't show your best side, and your reliance on having a good team can often be a fallback in monotype, but regardless you still understand battling and have dedication to your post.

DragonCat - As displayed from your willingness to help Richard with PotW, I know you're certainly willing to help the site, and whilst that replay didn't show your skill very well I know you have attempted to learn to battle so maybe something like this would help you do so.

Delicious_Scout - Your replays always have cool gimmicks, and that is what you must rely on in monotype, but then equally your craziness can often make it hard for others to understand what you're saying.

Spriter - Your steel gym did well, being second only to Richard if memory serves, and you had dedication to the gym. If I'm honest, I tried to write a negative point for everyone as well as a positive, but I'm struggling to think of one.

Chloe - I know how much you'd love the position, and your team in the replay shows many cool sets (Volt Switch Solar Power Heliolisk to avoid the HP penalty from solar power whilst still getting the boost), but I worry that with A2 coming up you may not be able to give the time needed, as much as you'd want to.

Jamie - You beat Richard 6-0 Nah, but still, I know you're a very good battler and although I don't know you very well you seem friendly enough, but obviously as an extension to not knowing you well I also don't know how much time you'd realistically be able to put in, but given you said you can spend most the weekend it shouldn't be a problem ^^

~~~

Okay, tried to give you each a positive and a negative, and I know some bits will sound a bit 'duh, I knew that' but it's more to let you know what I'm thinking than anything else.

Alright Dick, I'll try to get a better video. Rich has been helping my with a team (not monotype). If you don't mind, i'll fetch something else.

Also Scout, try to be careful in how you word your opinion so that it doesn't hurt your chances please.

It's fine - I've watched most of yours in the replay thread anyway so I have a pretty good idea of how good you are, but if you get a particularly good replay or something feel free to edit it in to your post ^^

Well, now it is time for us... to give our own opinion about you ;3
