    Vash, Lutris and I have been cooking up an idea for a DLP pokemon league for a few months. The basic idea is that the league will be a permanent fixture that you can challenge at any time you wish. The league will consist of 8 gyms and 4 elite members.

    Each gym leader must have five pokemon of a certain type and a 6th wildcard. For example, a rock gym would have 5 rock types and the 6th pokmon could be anything. The elite members will cover tiers.

    Challengers may form their teams from any tier they wish and have whatever type coverage they wish, Barring Ubers.

    The gyms we've decided on are:

    Steel
    Leader: Silens Cursor

    Water
    Leader: Seratin

    Electric
    Leader: Chaos guy

    Grass
    Leader: Mattsilver

    Dark
    Leader: Lutris

    Psychic
    Leader: Vash

    Fire
    Leader: Poytin

    Normal
    Leader: Oz

    You can challenge the league in any order you wish. Because we don't have a large number of pokemon players on the board we've had to overlap for certain positions. The league members are as follows:

    Elite four NU:
    Seratin

    Elite four UU:
    Lutris

    Elite four OU:
    Vash

    Elite four Challenge cup:
    Red

    Obviously, the champion is yet to be determined.

    Give myself, Vash or Lutris a pm if you want to apply for a leader position. Gym leaders are expected to maintain a decent win:loss ratio. Once a gym leader slips below a certain ratio they can be challenged for their position.

    You can find most of us on irc in #pokemanz.

    We battle using the PO battle client and thanks to Vash we have our own private server, the Korriban league. The address of the server can be found in irc.

    We generally use the Smogon tiers. Oh and no 5th gen until 5th gen comesout in full force.

    Well, I think that's it. Go forth and spread the good word. :awesome

    I'll take the Rock gym leader spot - I've got a few ideas how I can make a team there pretty awesome.

    I'd be up for making a Grass team. Though I'd defer to Mattsilver if he wants it.

    You messed up the link, here it is.

    Other than that, I didn't even know there was pokemon online game:facepalm
    I'll check it out later, but it's a cool idea.

    Wouldn't it be better for a third party to fight us and rate the better team?

    This'll be huge fun, and it'll be great to have any and all hidden DLP Pokemon players to come out of the proverbial closet and challenge our new League.

    Also, in addition to what Seratin's original post said, you'll be required to beat all gyms before you're eligible to challenge the Elite Four, as is the norm in all Pokemon games. Just to clarify.

    I'd rather have them battle it out, best of 3 or maybe 5, with at least one established gym leader or E4 member sitting in to check things out.


    Anyway, let's have some fun, people. >:3

    Dual Gym Master. Three pokey-mans each. Arm-wrestle for the wildcard.

    The only thing that would be cooler than this would be doing this in real life.

    Oh wait.

    That said, this is awesome. I'm actually making a fire team right now but it's difficult - stealth rock makes me so fucked...

    I'm not sure if my grass team is at all that stellar, so maybe after some requisite testing and battling against Kalas, we'll figure out who's the better choice for grass gym leader. Lutris's idea sounds solid.

    EDIT: I feel pretty good about my team, after a few test battles. Probably need to get my ass whooped by Vira, Lutris or an actual fire Pokemon before I can fully judge, though.

    Well then, once Mattsilver and Kalas battle each other for the grass gym spot, we're open for business.

    And by business I mean challenges. COME TRY AND GET THE FLOOD BADGE, FUCKERS. >:3

    Can challengers chop and change their teams for the battles, or do they have to keep the same team? I'd assume same team but it's not clear. And say I have 7 badges, how many times can I challenge for the 8th badge before I piss the leader off?

    You have to keep the same team the whole way through. Otherwise you could just put yourself at a type advantage before every gym.

    I reckon one challenge per leader per day? Must talk that over >_>.

    Download the Pokemon Online, client. You can get on IRC with any IRC client, or with the IRC Chat button on the above menu...

    IRC server is irc.darklordpotter.net and Channel is #pokemanz

    The Server address for PO is there...

    What kind of rules does this league have in regard to held items and usable items?
