Rules/Regulations
This has to run on a strict deadline system, if you miss any of your matches during the 2 week period it counts as a loss for both participants, unless I am given a valid reason for the match not being played. This brings me on to holidays, if you are going away for two weeks or something this can be accounted for, if you want to miss a season this can be accounted for, but any longer than a month of absence will (unfortunately) have to result in a dismemberment from the league, as otherwise it will make the league impossible to keep up with. This brings me neatly onto THE RULES:


Species Clause
Evasion Clause
Sleep Clause
OHKO Clause (Self OHKO for a draw is allowed)
No Illegal Hacks, legit are acceptable (but discouraged) / Ubers / Hax Items
A disconnection counts as a loss with 0 points
Legendaries are discouraged by the points system
If you use 2 of skarmory, blissey cresselia your pts for a win will go down by 2
If you use 3 of skarmory, blissey, cresselia your pts for a win will go down by 4
You must be able to check this page 3 times a week to see for updates
If there is any reason why you cannot keep to any of these rules, I should be notified
If you don't reply to someone who has been trying to arrange a battle by the deadline, the non-responsive person loses
If you dont' respond to 3 of your 4 matches in a season you are out

Intro and Signing up Stuff: (Not currently Needed)

Hello and welcome to the Serebii Premier League. This is a league designed to incorporate people of all walks of the “pokemoning” profession, it has a unique format that will allow us to have people of differing abilities competing in the same competition:

Points System:


Lose – 10 points
Draw – 20 points
Win – (No. of Legendaries in Team x 3) + (No. of OUs x 5) + (No. of BLs x 6) + (No. of UUs x 7)


Uber Legendaries (Banned): Arceus, Darkrai, Deoxys, Deoxys Attack, Deoxys Defence, Dialga, Groudon, Giratina, Lugia, Ho-oh, Kyogre, Rayquaza, Latios, Latias, Manaphy, Mewtwo, Mew, Palkia, Wobbufet - Yes i still call it Uber

OU Legendaries (3 Points): Zapdos, Suicune, Celebi, Azelf, Heatran, Jirachi, Cresselia, Deoxys Speed - Yes i do class this as OU not Uber

Any Other Tier Legendaries get the usual amount of Points from their Tier These are: Articuno, Moltres, Raikou, Entei, Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Phione, Uxie, Mesprit, Regigigas, Shaymin, Rotom - Yes i count it as legendary

I feel that this points system adds an element of risk into the league to make it more interesting, obviously if you play an OU team you would get 30 points, so it would follow the pattern. I put legendaries lower to avoid cresselia, heatran and celebi abuse, which I see reasonably often these days. Each team will announce the pokemon team of 6 that they will use during each “season”

At the end of each season we will need to sort out relegation and promotion, the person who is at the top of each league gets automatically promoted to the league above and the person who is at the bottom of each league gets automatically relegated. The person in 4th place plays the person in 2nd place in the league below. The winner goes in the higher league and the loser goes to the lower league, these are the playoffs.

This league will run in seasons, the amount of seasons is indefinite, but you are perfectly welcome to step out at any point, although the end of the season would be the most sensible place to do it. Each season will be split into 3 periods:


The first two matches (lasting 2 weeks)
The second two matches (lasting 2 weeks)
One week for playoffs and general administrative stuff, such as adding new leagues, people leaving/joining

Rules/Regulations
This has to run on a strict deadline system, if you miss any of your matches during the 2 week period it counts as a loss for both participants, unless I am given a valid reason for the match not being played. This brings me on to holidays, if you are going away for two weeks or something this can be accounted for, if you want to miss a season this can be accounted for, but any longer than a month of absence will (unfortunately) have to result in a dismemberment from the league, as otherwise it will make the league impossible to keep up with. This brings me neatly onto THE RULES:


Species Clause
Evasion Clause
Sleep Clause
OHKO Clause (Self OHKO for a draw is allowed)
No Illegal Hacks, legit are acceptable (but discouraged) / Ubers / Hax Items
A disconnection counts as a loss with 0 points
Legendaries are discouraged by the points system
If you use 2 of skarmory, blissey cresselia your pts for a win will go down by 2
If you use 3 of skarmory, blissey, cresselia your pts for a win will go down by 4
You must be able to check this page 3 times a week to see for updates
If there is any reason why you cannot keep to any of these rules, I should be notified
If you don't reply to someone who has been trying to arrange a battle by the deadline, the non-responsive person loses
If you dont' respond to 3 of your 4 matches in a season you are out

no hacked pokemon, ie no pokemon with illegal movesets/abilities, just no hacked pokemon, the only moves htat are banned are OHKO moves, and evasion movves, also look at the sleep clause as well, only 1 pokemon is allowed to be asleep so it is illegal to use a sleeping move if one of the opponants pokemon is already asleep, status moves etc are perfectly welcome

I noticed a bit of a problem. When will the deadline for the first battles be? I have finals starting the 14th and ending the 26th I believe. So that period I will be basically out of battling. I might be able to sneak in some Shoddy occasionally, but not a lot.

goldfan
15th May 2008, 9:08 AM
I have changed my mind completely:

1 - Just ask me nicely and i will post your matches earlier, so you can sort them out!

ALso guys, it's nice to keep active if possible, I'm not imposing any rules on this but a post every so often would be nice, just to keep this going until the start date, thanks very much!

Do any more challengers want to sign up, there are 8 spaces left in this league, 3 beginners spots, 3 experienced players sopts, and 2 spots for people who are in the middle, come sign up now!

What happens if someone uses a pokemon thats not on their original team?

goldfan
15th May 2008, 5:39 PM
automatically lose, it goes against the rules of the league, but you are allowed to change your team at the end of every season, it's a good way to test out a new team. But if you accidentaly do something stupid like release something that's on your team, send me a message and i'll deal with it, moveset changes are allowed and so are item changes, if you were wondering. Don't forget to invite people! (and thanks for the activity!)

UmbreonLord
15th May 2008, 5:59 PM
OK, I know what to do now

dragon trainer dave
15th May 2008, 6:49 PM
is it possible to change a pokemon in our team before the season starts?

goldfan
15th May 2008, 8:30 PM
yep just tell me now and i will sort it.

NOTE: Feel free to keep signing up, there are lots of places left

@ haunter shadow - Battles will be interdivision, only playoffs will be out of division, you play everyone in your division 1ce in a season then we do promotion/ relegation/playoffs then we start a new season

@ JOsh nice to have you onboard, remember to keep checking for updates, and we hope you enjoy your stay here! Also if you can battle PBR i could use your PBR code for people to be able to see, thanks!

Oh Yeah, DW about it, Do you still fancy that battle at the weekend Jacol?

@ Everyone: Not many people seem to be signing up to Dragonite at the moment, how do you suggest i go about moving people around in the league, getting people to battle each other, or will some people be happy to move voluntary?

Query. Single top used pokémon Garchomp gives you more points to hold than a certain BL called Regirock? O.o

...or would he be classed as BL?

Still, this is a cool idea.
I'd like to use the following team:

@ Drunken Sniper - Any BL legendaries can count as BL, will edit the post that was a really good question, so thanks for asking it, of course i will sign you up. I'm just going to move down to my dad's house for the weekend, it will take about 20 mins perhaps, then I'll do the nessecary. What is your preferred BAttling method, is it a DS or a PBR code, thanks for the sign up!

@ Dave - no problem, if you fancy a slightly longer streak in the battle tower, try something that can do special damage, Hypnosis Gengar is quite popular, or a sweeping starmie! Good Luck!

Luneth
16th May 2008, 7:07 PM
Ok, just for the record, I have downloaded Shoddy, and tbh can't be bothered with it, is it Ok if I just leave my battle preference as D/P and PBR?

goldfan
16th May 2008, 8:00 PM
yeah no problem, just keep it in mind, just in case, but DS is what most people should be battling on anyway

Luneth
16th May 2008, 8:11 PM
So we need 3 more people for the Dragonite Division, 1 more person for the Weedle Division and 2 more people for the Quilava division then we can get this party started!

DrunkenSniper
16th May 2008, 8:23 PM
oh snap, I deleted more than I meant.

Preferred style is Shoddy by far. Alternative is DS.

Jacol Beyros
16th May 2008, 8:30 PM
of course im still up for the battle, goldfan. and whoever wins goes to the dragonite division. deal? can u battle at 2pm saturday?

goldfan
16th May 2008, 8:39 PM
@ Jacol Beyros - 2 pm your time, or 2pm my time as i cannot do 2pm your time, but i can do 2 pm my time, if not i am free all of sunday? and yes that is a deal

@ Luneth - Yes I'm not sure on the exact start Date yet, it says June the 2nd, but if we get everyone in sooner that's cool too, I'm just not sure about my exams, maybe at the end of next week we can start, as i have a half term break i can battle in. And the last update is 1 for the dragonite, as either me or Jacol will end up in the Dragonite after our battle. 2 for Quilava, for the same reasons and 2 for weedle

@ Drunken Sniper, thanks for the Update, and I've added the legendary tiers, If there's any I've missed please tell me and i will add them, Tiers are from Smogon, except for Wobbufet, which i still consider UBER! Any objections just leave a message.

Luneth
16th May 2008, 8:57 PM
Likewise, with my exams, I also have the halfterm break in which I can battle.

DrunkenSniper
16th May 2008, 8:58 PM
I have the same Half Term, too.
I have a couple of maths A-Levels on the 2nd. D=

goldfan
16th May 2008, 8:58 PM
Oh Yeah i guess you are GMT too, I'm doing AS levels, what exams are you doing?

Drunken Sniper, you doing A levels or AS levels, as i have C1 and C2 on 2nd never mind M1 and D2 on this coming wednesday and then FP1 on 16th, but thats ages i away, i can get back to competitve battling before that. Yep maths and further maths, great fun!

Luneth
16th May 2008, 8:59 PM
GCSE's, I'm in year 11 at the moment, my 1st week is over so I have 4 more weeks left to go then I'm free until I start college:)

DrunkenSniper
16th May 2008, 9:01 PM
Well I did all the General Studies, had Stats yesterday...

Japanese on Monday afternoon (3 Hours T_T), Mechanics on Wednesday, two Business Studies papers on Thursday and then C1 and C2 on the 2nd, and finally two Chemistry papers on the 4th.

It's ASes this year. And lucky, your school started further early. We have to blitz through everything next year. At least C1/2 are stupidly easy, I guess.

goldfan
16th May 2008, 9:03 PM
sound like your doing the same Exam board as our school, how come you're doing stats and mechanics, and c1 and c2 that seems like too many modules. I did general studies too, it was well...

Also: Any1 want a battle right now, if not i'll leave a post on the main thread, my houndoom is so nearly finished and i want to test out my team

EDIT: Oh i get it your school does all the maths in one year, and all the further next year, we do it together, i dunno why we do 3 maths and 3 further maths this year and then the same next year, too much stats though, it makes me feel so bored i like mechanics and pure waaaaaay better

@ Luneth - Good Luck in yours!

Luneth
16th May 2008, 9:06 PM
I'll battle you, I need to try something out also.

goldfan
16th May 2008, 9:07 PM
OK luneth i will add you and see you on in just one second.

Just going to change the nickname on my houndoom and give it an item, the nickname is still 6 from checking it's IVs!

My FC is 0860 0889 9070 but i gues it's on the first page too!

EDIT: I am on ready and waiting!

Jacol Beyros
16th May 2008, 9:34 PM
2pm ur time goldfan. good luck on ur current battle.

goldfan
16th May 2008, 9:38 PM
Cheers Jacol yes i can battle then i look forward to that

@ Luneth, good Job!, you toally out predicted me! I think you can stay in Weedle neat season, but i expect you to rise through the ranks very soon, you are a very competant battler, i meant to put another move on my lucario, you got it right, atm it is toally walled by ghosts, but not for long!

Luneth
16th May 2008, 9:41 PM
GG, that's quite a Vaporeon you've got there, very nice indeed.

EDIT: thanks, I really started to panic when I couldn't get my SR set up with Rhyperior.

goldfan
16th May 2008, 9:43 PM
Thanks, it's basically staple in all of the teams i have, if you EV it in Def rather than Sp. Def it becomes very bulky, taking phys/spec attacks + it is a great phazer and has awesome STAB on Surf too!

EDIT: I was surprised that you EQ'd my lucario, i thought you would expect it to be special considering sent it out against it, i think it was the predicted burns that got me, having donphan and dusky burney was never going to win me the battle!

Luneth
16th May 2008, 9:48 PM
Yea totally, my Dusknoir is a Mixed Tank so I didn't expect Surf to do that much, I think I miss calculated however, I wanted to wear your Vaporeon down by T-Punching, I predicted I could take about three more Surfs before switching, then I'd Shadow Sneak to finish it, but I switched out on the 2nd Surf instead- not sure why really, wanted to give Salamence a look in the game I guess.

goldfan
16th May 2008, 9:50 PM
yeah, good thing i didn't ice beam though! but i wouldn't have done that i don't think i wasn't predicting anything i was a little dead by then i was just trying to get in the STAB surfs

EDIT: Getting rid of D-nite early helped you too!

Luneth
16th May 2008, 9:52 PM
I was hoping you wouldn't switch to Ice Beam:) I really need to pack a spinner onto my team, I was relying on my Tanks too much that game.

goldfan
16th May 2008, 9:55 PM
It's all food for thought, no doubt i will meete you in the league at some point, may we battle again then.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO KEEP ON SIGNING UP!

Luneth
16th May 2008, 9:58 PM
I'll look forward to it, I just badly want this league to start now! Isn't there some way we can get more people to sign up quicker:) ?

goldfan
16th May 2008, 10:03 PM
No, there is really, only patience and a good post count, keep people noticing it, we only need 5 more sign ups, and mention it to people you know as well, get people interested, I want to start with 3 leagues though, i'm not going to make it smaller

thankyou very much for your application jake, i just need a team name is that ok?

@ Luneth could you move up to the quilava division, as after me and Jacols battle today that would leave one space in each division which would be nice, you don't have to move, it just would be useful

EDIT: I have added an Update under the current battles heading, please everyone check it out

goldfan
17th May 2008, 1:10 PM
I'll look it up on Dictionary.com!

Very Very Important UPDATE when you put your timezone on, did you adjust for the fact that the clocks have gone forward, because if you have tell me, i have been working on the basis that GMT is the actualt time in GMT timezone not GMT + 1 as the clocks have gone forward, if you have adjusted please tell me so i can sort it out!

EDIT: it is now 2pm Jacol and I am on and waiting for you

DrunkenSniper
17th May 2008, 4:11 PM
oh, yeah. By GMT I suppose I should probably say BST, which is GMT+1. (It's 3:09 right now)

goldfan
17th May 2008, 4:14 PM
Cool thanks, actually i have an idea, If everyone can leave a post saying what time it is where you are, and i will edit the first post accordingly, if you could all do that that would be great!

Hauntershadow92

It is 10:35 AM where I am.

Jacol Beyros
17th May 2008, 4:37 PM
im in gmt-7. its 7:35ish now.

gg goldfan. im looking forward to our next battle.

goldfan
17th May 2008, 4:42 PM
you're actually GMT -8 Jacol, you've got confused because of the time going forward, but thanks for posting anyway, it's got that sorted out, keep posting guys, and does anyone else want to join

@ Jacol: GG i guess I have to go up to dragonite
@ Luneth: Can you go up to Quilava please?

Jacol Beyros
17th May 2008, 4:47 PM
well, wherever i am, im currently 7 hours behind gmt. otherwise we would have never been on at the same time to battle.

goldfan
17th May 2008, 4:51 PM
It is currently 3:50 over here, you weren't on until 3 o'clock that is no-ones fault, it just proves that you are 8 hours behind GMT it's just GMT -7 because the clocks have gone forward, but if you ignore the clocks then you are at GMT -8

Jacol Beyros
17th May 2008, 4:56 PM
oh. sorry i made u wait. ive been using gmt-7 for all my trades in the past, and they worked out well. they were after the clock switcheroo too.

goldfan
17th May 2008, 5:02 PM
i guess other people have been saying they're GMT -7 and don't worry about it it's all cool because i had other things to do whilst waiting, i assumed it might be a mix up so i was prepared to wait for you, it's not a problem at all,thanks for the game!

ANY MORE CHALLENGERS?

Luneth
17th May 2008, 5:16 PM
you're actually GMT -8 Jacol, you've got confused because of the time going forward, but thanks for posting anyway, it's got that sorted out, keep posting guys, and does anyone else want to join

@ Jacol: GG i guess I have to go up to dragonite
@ Luneth: Can you go up to Quilava please?

Sure, if you think I'm good enough.

goldfan
17th May 2008, 5:21 PM
Course I do, you kicked the poo out of me, i think you're good enough to be in dragonite personally, but you'll probably get promotion this season anyway, i guess the good thing about this league is that it kind of ranks you anyway after a couple of seasons, just need 3 more sign-ups, i hope they come soon!

DrunkenSniper
17th May 2008, 5:23 PM
Yeah, it should settle itself out soon enough. I'm looking forward to this, though I may be stuck on shoddy for a little while >_<

goldfan
17th May 2008, 5:25 PM
What you can't abttle on DS or PBR, if you can't it's proably best to postpone some matches, because not everyone has to have shoddy, but the more people you can convince to get it the better

DrunkenSniper
17th May 2008, 5:30 PM
Well I have three of the pokémon ready, 4th a pending trade. There are only two trouble pokes, so to speak.

goldfan
17th May 2008, 5:32 PM
cool, well unfortunate as it is, if someone doesn't have shoddy they are under no obligation to get it, and if you can't battle by the deadlines then the match will be forfeit, but even when i do post the first matches, you will still have 2 weeks to do your battles, i don't think it will be an issue, good luck training!

Hauntershadow92
17th May 2008, 5:43 PM
All I know is all dragons have shoddy. Unless there is a 4th dragon i don'tknow about.

DrunkenSniper
17th May 2008, 6:35 PM
Hmm, yeah. But don't worry too much, I should be done by the two weeks unless fate intervenes.
Speaking of Shoddy, Haunter, wanna test teams?

Hauntershadow92
17th May 2008, 6:55 PM
Lol DS, I was just thinking of that. Sure. Official Server.

goldfan
17th May 2008, 11:24 PM
Hope you guys had a good battle, yeah you're right, most dragonites have shoddy. Please sign up people we have 1 space left in each league and battling will start as soon as possiblewhen everyone has signed up!

where i live its GMT+1 because its 12:15 ( nightime or very early morning whichever you prefer )

goldfan
18th May 2008, 12:26 AM
Cool thanks for the update, also it's called the serebii premier league for your sig if you mind, but i like it that you've got my name in your sig, it's like I'm suddenly known!

UmbreonLord
18th May 2008, 11:28 AM
I might have a friend who'll join if he gets his team ready.

goldfan
18th May 2008, 11:29 AM
Cool, if he does join, can i suggest he gets his own account, does he have his own? It is just easier for contact purposes, anyway umbreon fancy that battle now?

EDIT: @ everyone, were getting up toward 100 posts guys, thanks for keeping this active whilst we gather challengers guys, let's not ever let this league die (well as long as possible anyway)

dragon trainer dave
18th May 2008, 1:05 PM
goldfan isnt deoxys a uber and arnt rules no ubers that team will just win every match with deoxys.

goldfan
18th May 2008, 1:19 PM
Deoxys Speed form is not considered an Uber, it has very very good speed base 180, but a very average everything else, if you are really bothered by it talk to the other members of this league and if you present to me a petition banning it then i will consider it, but deoxys Speed form is not Uber, the rest of the Deoxys forms are.

dragon trainer dave
18th May 2008, 1:24 PM
ah! ok thats fine then im not too botherd but if it was an uber would be bit unfair.

goldfan
18th May 2008, 1:25 PM
Yeah i know, last thing i want is for this league to be unfair, i included Deoxys-s, because it's not amazingly effective as most of it's stats are poor-ish

dragon trainer dave
18th May 2008, 1:27 PM
k i wasnt sure because ive never had one so but thanks for clearing that up.

goldfan
18th May 2008, 1:32 PM
Here's the link if you want to have a look:

Deoxys Link (http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-dp/386.shtml)

DrunkenSniper
18th May 2008, 2:39 PM
Deoxys is a great pressure staller, but he's no Uber.

UmbreonLord
18th May 2008, 2:45 PM
Good luck to everyone in any league.

goldfan
18th May 2008, 2:46 PM
will never survive a band gross, or anything wih super effective damage and a bit of bulk, it's weak enough to be considered OU, I've seen it a little on shoddy and people seem to be using it mostly late game, for a final little sweep, I've never seen it used as a pressure staller. Anyway It's been a while since we've had people sign up but we have some invitations pending, so hopefull we'll be ready to go soon!

EDIT: I am still running sign-ups on a first come first served basis, so if you get here and post first you will still be accepted!

DrunkenSniper
18th May 2008, 2:52 PM
Well it's the fastest user of substitute, taunt, knock off and has a huge variety of support moves imo.

And yeah, we only have 3 people to go, it shouldn't take long now.

goldfan
18th May 2008, 2:54 PM
good point, i never looked at it that way, maybe my mind was clouded by base 180 speed psycho boost, perhaps with choice specs, shows how easily distracted i am by power! hahahaha

UmbreonLord
18th May 2008, 4:42 PM
I don't think its that good of a staller. Its subs don't last very long...

goldfan
18th May 2008, 4:43 PM
Pressure stalling though, by the time it's made 4 or 5 subs, your opponants lost 10 PP which can kill moves

NOTE: 100 posts and 1000 views, this is great, need people to sign up though!

DrunkenSniper
18th May 2008, 4:44 PM
not to mention any status move is rendered useless.

Luneth
18th May 2008, 4:50 PM
Only three more spaces? I have to say that was quicker than I thought! Goldfan, I know you said battles will start 2nd of June, but if we get the three signups earlier, I assume we'll just start then, right?

EDIT: Oh, read the update, Ok:)

Mr.kyogre
18th May 2008, 4:58 PM
excuse me, but is zoom lens a hax item?

goldfan
18th May 2008, 4:59 PM
I don't know, because it'e not like increaseing luck, it's decreasing luck, that's a really good point, I'll look on the standard rules and leave a post, i will edit this post when i find out Mr. Kyogre.

EDIT: Zoom lens is not considered a Hax item

Luneth
18th May 2008, 5:06 PM
Yea, there's no way Zoom Lens could be a hax item, in BL and UU Crobat and Ninetails use them a lot to increase chances of Hypnosis (Crobat) and Will-O-Wisp (Ninetails).

Mr.kyogre
18th May 2008, 5:06 PM
Is wide lens a hax item?

Luneth
18th May 2008, 5:08 PM
No, Likewise with Zoom Lens, sam principle.

Mr.kyogre
18th May 2008, 5:10 PM
thanks.
are you guys bothered by my deoxys-s?
just asking.

rob24
18th May 2008, 5:10 PM
When are these battles going to start?

goldfan
18th May 2008, 5:12 PM
as soon as the last 3 challengers have signed up, do you want to sign up?

EDIT: I am not bothered by your Deoxys s neither is anyone else, i explained to people that it is not Uber and why it is not Uber and everyone seems happy about it

rob24
18th May 2008, 5:32 PM
not at the moment, i'll be thinking about it

goldfan
18th May 2008, 5:34 PM
Ok, when you say thinking about it, when 3 more people sign up then there won't be any places left, and if you join now you have a complete choice of what division you want to be in, i can't be sure of this but it's probably now or never (we may add more divisions, but i can't be sure)

rob24
18th May 2008, 5:38 PM
ok, can i join the quilava division?

goldfan
18th May 2008, 5:41 PM
yeah np go to the first page and copy and paste the form here and fill it out(I wasn't trying to pressure you into i, i was just trying to point out the practicalities of what you said, if you think it's best not to join then don't if you do want to join fill out the form on the first page and post it here

Thankyou very much, rob 24, may you have a long and succesful career in this league, battling will start as soon as we have 2 more challengers, remember to keep asking people, and if we can get someone to sign up to dragonite that will be cool, but i dont know if people will.

Important: Will anyone in Quilava take the last place in dragonite?

OK i will post updates when we have everyone then we can get this thing started, thanks for the sign up rob!

W00t, another sign up, two to go!

dragon trainer dave
18th May 2008, 5:57 PM
wow this is quick if it starts this week coming i have exams and may not be able to battle everyday, also im going to change my team soon looking at everyone elses teams in begginer they look alot better than mine.

goldfan
18th May 2008, 6:00 PM
If you want to change your team, you have to do it before i post the first battles, I am training an ape i will put it in my team by leaving a post here, before i post the battles (if it is finished in time) if not i will have to add it at the beginning of the next season.

Not to everyone: If you want to change your team do it in between seasons, whilst the playoffs are happening

Also you won't need to battle everyday, you have 2 weeks for your first 2 battles and 2 weeks for your second 2 battles i assume you can squeeze those in i have AS levels to do, so i won't post anything that is too hard for people with exams as i have them too!

dragon trainer dave
18th May 2008, 6:03 PM
if i have 2 weeks i will defeinatly squeeze them in

Luneth
18th May 2008, 6:04 PM
wow this is quick if it starts this week coming i have exams and may not be able to battle everyday, also im going to change my team soon looking at everyone elses teams in begginer they look alot better than mine.


Also, you can't tell if your team is inferior just because you look at some other people's sprites:) try getting in some practice battles to refine your battling skill, the more battles you compete in, the better you get, trust me!

dragon trainer dave
18th May 2008, 6:11 PM
i only used the sandstorm troopers for a bit of fun and thinking everyone in weedle would have basic teams but looking at it they dont so im gonna upgrade mine to more variety

goldfan
18th May 2008, 6:11 PM
That's a very good point it's all about experience, hopefully this league will give everyone a chance to gain some of that!

dragon trainer dave
18th May 2008, 6:14 PM
well its my first league so hopefully i will learn alot but expect a team update from me today.

goldfan
18th May 2008, 6:21 PM
yep no problem,

any other sign ups?

Hauntershadow92
18th May 2008, 6:23 PM
Goldfan, how many more positions? I'll try and get members of my clan to join.

JmH Reborn
18th May 2008, 6:24 PM
I guess my reading comprehension is off, how does this 'season' work? I'd like to challenge the league and start taking names!

goldfan
18th May 2008, 6:24 PM
Only 2 more sign ups, 1 in Dragonite, 1 in Weedle

EDIT: JMH, basically you battle every person in your DIvision once per "season", if you win or lose you gain a certain number of points. At the end of each "Season" you get a ranking from 1 to 5 within your division, you can then gain promotion or relegation automatically or through playoffs, that is a basic overview, i will say who to battle when, it will be under the "battles" heading on the first page (If you'd like to join just fill out the form)

rob24
18th May 2008, 6:45 PM
Does anyone want to battle now, for practice?

18th May 2008, 7:11 PM
nice battle dave

dragon trainer dave
18th May 2008, 7:12 PM
i got unlucky with the miss from gengar and trick room murderd my team, nice electrivier

anyone got any advice for my ninjask for fourth move it has:
toxic, swords dance and baton pass.

rob24
18th May 2008, 7:14 PM
yeah thanks for the battle

dragon trainer dave
18th May 2008, 7:16 PM
im going to put protect as the fourth move an extra speed boost it handy but not handy with trick room lol

Goldfan can i have a practice match with you?

Luneth
18th May 2008, 7:17 PM
X-scissor possibly? For STAB?

goldfan
18th May 2008, 7:18 PM
yeah of course dave, I'll battle you now

Classic Ninjask

Ninjask @ Leftovers

- Substitute - Its faster than everyone else allows 3/4 free speed boosts
- Swords Dance
- Baton Pass
- X-scissor - for the odd alakazam / azelf you might meet

I'm on by the way and ready to battle

dragon trainer dave
18th May 2008, 7:18 PM
well i usually just switch out with ninjask for the swordance and speed boost so protect works there

Luneth
18th May 2008, 7:21 PM
Yea that works fine on Ninjask, beware of SR though.

goldfan
18th May 2008, 7:23 PM
are you coming on Dave?

rob24

Luneth
18th May 2008, 7:25 PM
can i battle with you andre?

Yes indeed, meet you online.

rob24
18th May 2008, 7:27 PM
ok, i'll be coming on soon

goldfan
18th May 2008, 7:28 PM
have you considered focus Sash on Ninjask, it would help amazingly! only problem then is tyranitar, go with subsitute with leftovers or focus sash and protect.

EDIT: Bad luck Dave you let hounddom in too far, try something with focus sash or chopice scarf, that would have dealt with it, you are also lacking reliable walls, a special wall, like blissey or a careful specially EV'd dusknoir might help

dragon trainer dave
18th May 2008, 7:30 PM
this was a big confidence drop ouch how is hidden power super effective against 3 totally diferent types

goldfan
18th May 2008, 7:32 PM
Hidden Power Ice super on dragons, Flying, Ground, and other stuff, d/w about it though, it all about learning from your mistakes, look at what i said about ninjask, and special walls and good luck in the league!

DrunkenSniper
18th May 2008, 7:33 PM
Ninjask is a bad pokémon, IMO. One Roar or Taunt user and it's useless. =P

dragon trainer dave
18th May 2008, 7:34 PM
well ive added the left overs move set on ninjask, but that really hurt being beat 6-0

goldfan
18th May 2008, 7:36 PM
seriously don't worry about it, it happened to me not too long ago, it's the explosive nature of nasty plot / swords dancers that if you let them get in too far then you're in trouble. Like i said Ev train some walls and you'll be great! Seriously don't worry about it, it's a learning curve

fair point Sniper, i think it does have it's uses though

dragon trainer dave
18th May 2008, 7:37 PM
i dont really know much about walls and stuff what would u recomend?

goldfan
18th May 2008, 7:41 PM
well blissey is the obvious special wall, but it is very overused, blissey with natural cure and bold nature Evs: 252 HP 252: Def (yes i do mean Def), but other good special walls are Dusknoir, Calm Mind Cresselia, Umbreon, Milotic, Tentacruel

Physical walls, skarmory is the obviuos choice, but is again very overused other good physical walls are Dusknoir, defenceive metagross, rhyperior, gliscor, + Def nature Cresselia

Ev training is imprtant when training walls

EDIT, you're team is good for the division you are in, don't worry about it too much, you might want to consider Ev training and Nature Breeding, as your pokemon were quite slow, gengar was slower than me

dragon trainer dave
18th May 2008, 7:43 PM
thanks for that i might try it for next season, does anyone else want a battle i really need the practice.

goldfan
18th May 2008, 7:44 PM
I like your enthusiasm and drive to improve dave! :)

Anyone else want to sign up?

dragon trainer dave
18th May 2008, 7:45 PM
lol thankyou well im new and have a lot to learn.

Also is there a way to get starmie to have hydro pump without training staru to level 55 and using water stone then?

rob24
18th May 2008, 8:03 PM
nice battle andre

Luneth
18th May 2008, 8:06 PM
Very good battle, 4-0 to me in the end though, crit on Umbreon put a dent in pride =/.

May I ask why, your Dusknoir is using that set? It's very admirable trying something different, but it won't get you very far unfortunately, I would change the set personally. Your Zong is awesome, I have a feeling that you could pull a Trick Room team off.

rob24
18th May 2008, 8:08 PM
yeah, this was just a test team though, i want to see what pokemon go together. thanks for the tip with Dusknoir

dragon trainer dave

goldfan
18th May 2008, 9:00 PM

yay! one spot to go! my team is almost done getting ev trained, so ill be ready!

EDIT: whats up with the destiny league goldfan? did it die?

goldfan
18th May 2008, 11:41 PM
Nice One Jacol, have you put items on as well, just wondering?

Important, the last spot will go on a first come first served basis, the first person to post here will get the spot, only 1 space left, that is in the quilava division!

Oh and Goldfan, can you change the name of my team to Team Pulse?

goldfan

yep no problem

@ Jacol - I dunno what's happened to the destiny league, I haven't heard from Fighting legendary or any1 else from it in a while, so i took it out of my sig, if it comes back I'll put it in again, I've just been concentrating on getting people in this league, cos i love the way it works

Kaosuseki
19th May 2008, 1:16 AM
I'M BACK.

As soon as I'm finished cleaning up my Pal Pad, anyone wanna do a practice bout? Is that allowed?

Jacol Beyros
19th May 2008, 4:54 AM
i think i got an idea for what items im gonna put on. we will see if they work.

goldfan
19th May 2008, 8:55 AM
Yes practice matches are allowed if you want, although most people here are GMT and have exams so midnight (GMT) is perhaps not the best time to do it!

@ Jacol, you say you are now EVtraining, how did you get a garchomp without mucking up it's EVs in the first place?

Some on people just one more sign up!

you have 2 weeks and league hasnt started yet so dont worry about it

goldfan
19th May 2008, 6:16 PM
@ Luneth - cheers, it was an edit, i was wondering what he had said beforehand, but thanks for the update, I'm not good at this chatting thing!

@ Kaosuseki - Count it as a win that's what i'd do, he's probably a hacker himself, most of the unhonest ones (i count you as honest haunter) can't stand losing

@ jt23jk19 - Don't worry about it, we still ahve one person to join and even then you have 2 weeks until the first deadline so i wouldn't worry about it

@ Dave - Well not much to say but good luck to you too, also cheers for being so active and i know i've got everone first battles sorted out, I'm itching to put them up and start collecting results!

dragon trainer dave
19th May 2008, 6:26 PM
no problem for being active can i give you a match i still need practice lol.

goldfan
19th May 2008, 6:30 PM
sorry dave, I'm at my mums house now, I'm still wifi cut off until the weekend, or if i can be bothere to get by backside down to my mums house now, which i can't because i have exams wednesday, thursday and i had 3.5 hours of exams today, sorry but i am only here in an administrational capacity, sorry to let you down dave!

Who wants to be the last to sign up and start this league!

dragon trainer dave
19th May 2008, 6:32 PM
no problem then, well if anyone wants a battle just say, also does anyone know how to get starmie with hydro pump without evolvin staryu at lv55

goldfan
19th May 2008, 6:41 PM
No, to be honest, and it's genderless so you couldn't even do it the even longer and more boring way, but surf is preferable to hydro pump imo anyway, and you can get that as staryu level 1

dragon trainer dave
19th May 2008, 6:43 PM
right ill just teach my starmie i have already surf then

Luneth
19th May 2008, 6:44 PM
No, to be honest, and it's genderless so you couldn't even do it the even longer and more boring way, but surf is preferable to hydro pump imo anyway, and you can get that as staryu level 1

Seconded. If your considering training a starmie surf is always more preferable for reliable STAB. If your daunted out by the long boring training you'll have to do to get Hydropump (if you insist on using it) put a Lucky Egg on Starmie, and it'll make your life much easier.

dragon trainer dave
19th May 2008, 6:46 PM
ill just use surf what does lucky egg do

also does anyone want a battle (im not in battle tower lol)

goldfan
19th May 2008, 6:47 PM
luckey egg raises the amount of EXP your pokemon gets, i think it's x 1.4 or something like that, might even be more than that, either way, it really reduces the time it takes to level a pokemon up, i got mine from pokemon XD lucky egg quest.

Luneth
19th May 2008, 6:47 PM
I'll battle you, and Lucky Egg doubles exp gained in battle, proided your pokemon (starmie, or staryu in this instance is in battle). Going online now.

dragon trainer dave
19th May 2008, 6:49 PM
right meet you there

someone sign up for the league

DrunkenSniper
19th May 2008, 6:51 PM
Mind if I battle one of you after?

And don't worry about hydro pump on Starmie. It's no Sweeper, and you'll only see much use for it if you see a lot of Tyranitar or Hippowdon, where that extra punch helps a lot. Surf's mostly better for revenge killing.

dragon trainer dave
19th May 2008, 6:54 PM
