The Theme League
Welcome to the Theme League, a Serebii League that’s home to eight Gym Leaders and an Elite Four, as well as a host of regular challengers. We accept challengers and leaders of varied levels of battling skills.
The Theme League is so named because each Leader adheres to a theme that they have chosen themselves, whether it’s based on physical characteristics, types, names, etc. This can be beneficial for both challengers and leaders: Leaders can break out of monotype boundaries that can be difficult when addressing weaknesses, and challengers can battle imaginative teams that aren’t necessarily steeped in overused competitive battling pokes.

Whilst by defeating the League you can win rewards (currently a movie Darkrai and New World Lucario, generously donated by mew), it’s my hope that here you can also gain a greater sense of a battling community on Serebii, that often lacks in the individual battling threads.

0. Introduction

The Theme League is now Open! Serebii battlers can put forward a challenge, either by PMing leaders, or posting on this thread. Please specify which gym leaders you would like to fight first, so that we're aware of who's battling who.
You must defeat three gym leaders before challenging the elite four members. Anyone who defeats the entire theme league will get the prize:
Japanese Movie Darkrai (Level 100) , because I'm the generous sort!
And, generously donated by mew, a new world 08 Lucario!



I- Rules and Points of Interest

Welcome challengers! Pitch your challenge to this league and we'll take you on; here are some rules/points of interest:

-The first person to defeat all active members in the theme league wins a movie Darkrai, supplied by myself =P ;491;

-If you lose against a leader, you cannot rechallenge that particular leader for a week. Feel free to challenge other leaders though.

- You must defeat three Gym Leaders before challenging the elite four members. And just so you know, aside from the elite four, we're not in rank order, so don't necessarily except an easy challenge at Gym One . Apart from the Gym Leader/Elite Four boundary, you may challenge in any order.

-Follow the leader's rules! They're on the first post, if you have a query about their rules, PM them. Simple.

-I'll ask this, though I know it's not in my power. If things turn bad, please don't disconnect!

-Don't forget to claim your individual prizes if you beat a leader.

-If you want to make a full twelve battle challenge, I'll add you to the first post so the leaders are aware that you're around.

-If there is a gym spot not currently taken by a gym leader, then a defeat of all the active leaders still counts as an overall league win.

-Please try your utmost to avoid posting one-liners on the League Thread.

-Whether you win or lose, be a good sport :P We're all here to enjoy ourselves (I hope!)

-If you have any questions or concerns, you can post on this thread, or PM me - pirate555 - and I'll quite happily help you out.

IV – The monthly win count for some competition yet to come.
The monthly win count for March is now being totalled! The challenger with the most battle wins under their belt by 31st March, wins a shiny Eevee with a Jolly nature, which I believe is untrained, though I'll double-check! There will also be a runner-up prize.

VII – Frequently Asked Questions
These are questions that have been raised before by challengers:

“What are Standard Rules?”
Many Serebii battlers are already aware of this, but for those who haven’t come across the term before, or those who want to check the detail again, the list of Standard Rules can be found at this link ->
http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=290790

"What Tiers can a challenger use in this League?"
Most gyms use standard rules and therefore accept pokemon from OU, BL and UU tiers. However, some gyms may accept Ubers, and some may omit individual pokes. Please check the individual gym leader information on this post before battling!

“What counts as an Uber?”
The list of Ubers that we adhere to is here ->
http://www.smogon.com/dp/tiers/uber
And yes, Garchomp is now on that list, so he counts as an Uber in the Theme League.

“I’ve already battled this leader recently outside of the Theme League and won, can I count it as a win for the League?”
Unless the Leader says that the win may count because it’s more convenient than a rematch, then you must battle again for the League. It is entirely up to the Leader’s discretion whether he/she faces you again; after all, they may not have been using their themed team at the time.

“What should I do if I have any concerns about the leaders?”
Post on the thread and/or ask them about it in a private message, or if it’s a more serious issue then contact me and I’ll consider what you have to say and deal with the problem at hand. This can range from concerns over inactivity, to Theme issues, rule breaking, etc.

“Are Platinum movesets allowed?”
You will need to consult the individual leaders here, many are fine with this, but some specifically disallow movesets from the new Platinum game.

VIII- Guess the theme
Just a small competition I thought I might run to make the league a little more interesting! Any leader or challenger who thinks they have the right answer can try. Today's 'Guess the Theme' has been thought up by Vinyacoire.

What links this themed team?

;182; ;062; ;034; ;475; ;135; ;113;

The prize is a level 51 distant land tropius. Post on the thread if you have an answer! Good luck =D

//Answer, by Gaias Hinuta: They all evolve using stones. Congratulations!

Thank you for visiting the Theme League today!

Siging up as a challenger. Just so I can get that Regigigas, I'm assuming most of the leaders are still active?

EDIT: That makes me sound really stupid. I'm in it for the battles too, but I would like to take a look at Pokewisdomegiver's rules, they seem a little too much towards him winning. It like he doesn't want to lose. If i dont have kyogre or groudon I lose? effectively

mew..
27th August 2008, 1:01 AM
Alright, I'm offering the new world 08 lucario to whoever can beat the whole league, so can you add that to the first post?

BTW, new rules

: Mew..
1369-4797-1369
Weather and trick room, and a nice suprise.

I play 6 vs 6, singles or doubles depending on my team. My teams are picked by rolling a dice, so it's random which you get to battle. I will not accept hacks except legit hacks.

I do standards, and ubers.(one of my teams is uber, so if you get unlucky and get it, you can ask to change if you don't have an uber team)
My rewards are a random pokemon from the team you battled, picked by a dice.


Notes: my battling style is luck. I never know which team I will use. Since it's based on luck, you may face a different team every battle.

27th August 2008, 7:55 PM
Thanks Goldfan and Lord Feraligatr, I'll sign/resign you up =) I'm sending a PM to Pokewisdomgiver about the Theme League situation today as they haven't been active for a quite a long while, so I'll get back to you on that situation!
I can vouch that we have most of our gym leaders active, there are only a couple of shortfalls, and of them most are because 3 of our leaders have only started very recently.
LordFeraligatr, your previous victories definitely count, I had them saved, so I'll simply copy and paste them on the challenger list.
I'm updating your new rules now mew....A 'nice surprise' team? *Shows unbridled curiosity*
And finally congratulations to BDog1, who made it to the open gym place, Gym 3; welcome to the Theme League!
I will be able to take battles for a short time tonight, if anybody's interested in challenging me,
Pirate

Edit: Mew, I've tried to update your new rules as concisely as possible, have I left anything important out?

mew..
28th August 2008, 2:01 AM
well, you said they can change and use ubers, may want to rephrase that to

"you may ask for a different team, or play the uber team if you have a uber team."

So people don't get confused.

The suprise team is my main team, but i won't reveal it's theme until it's completed.

28th August 2008, 7:43 AM
Ah man, why is it that every league is full on gym leaders or elite 4 members?

Anyways, since I cant join as a leader or E4 I would love to join as a challenger.

My name in game is Gotian just as it is here, my friend code is in my sig.

29th August 2008, 7:52 PM
Right, updates...
Changes to the leader list are being made now. Welcome to our newest Theme League leader, xxfallenonexx (mind if I type it like that?), who's taking over the position of Elite Four Member I. Welcome, and enjoy your time here!
"Freak owns", I'm adding you to the challenger list once more, I'm afraid most of the things that were being organised before the ending of the last thread weren't sufficiently followed up, which is probably why you never got a reply, sorry about that!
I'm going to struggle to find time to battle over the next day, maybe late this evening or early afternoon tomorrow I can battle. Otherwise, I'll be easier to find for a battle on Sunday =)
Thanks for challenging Gotian, I'll add you to the challenger list too, and if a new place comes up for a leader in the league (though we're almost fully active now), I'll make sure to contact you about it!

30th August 2008, 1:02 AM
could you copy and paste these rules? When they are shortened and such, it makes it hard to understand:

rules: 6 v 6 single or double, standard or uber, depending on the team- you may ask for a different team IF and only if you get the uber team, or play the uber team if you have an uber team of your own. Teams are picked by the rolling of a dice, and are therefore random.
prizes: a random pokemon from the team you battled, chosen randomly from the rolling of a dice.

ill challenge this gym is gym 1 able 2 be challenged?

pirate555
30th August 2008, 10:02 AM
The current Gym situation is as follows:
Elite 4 position I and Gym 3 have only just been changed hands, and the new leaders do get a couple of weeks to prep if they need it, so they're inactive until then.
Gym 1 and Gym 6 have also recently changed leaders, however, they hopefully will open within the next few days.
Those who remember the earlier Theme League will remember that it had serious inactivity issues, so the overhaul of the gyms was due to that. Hopefully once the leaders are set up the League will be easier to challenge as a whole!

I've made all of the updates for leaders and challengers, welcome to the new challengers =) Seeing as there are quite a few challengers, I'll make myself available for a battle early this afternoon. Challengers can start their challenges whenever they like!

2nd September 2008, 9:14 PM
erm pirate i think the rules next to my name need rephrasing...

where it says legendaries allowed i meant no ubers but legendaries allowed.

I just had to sit by and watch a lugia rip through half of my entire team :P, congrats to Megatrainer i guess i will give you the victory because it didnt actually say no ubers even though i meant it.

anyone else probably have space for one more before i have to go.

Please don't tell me you hacked it because arcues can only be obtained via hacking.

but you can't do that! The Event for arcues has not been released YET so it is impossible without hacking to get arcues. Also i'm pretty sure your shaymin is not legit, your wonder guard mew = hacked, magma armour deoxy = hacked, wonderguard jirachi = hacked, no guard mewtwo = hacked, who knows how many more hacked pokemon you've got sorry if you didn't know but you can't use them, it's better me telling you now before you go into a battle with them and get blacklisted.
Ok
i'm going to stop spamming this thread now.

Different note:

if anyone wants to set up a challenge with me this friday or weekend please pm me so we can set it up.

i don't use any of them to win tournaments, i just use 'em for fun with my friends. on my trainer card the only other thing which is hacked is the heatran but i on ly use him for rock climb + defog. for other purposes (i.e battling i replace arceus and heatran with himonlee and metagross. (himonlee from my leafgreen and i got the beldum from my saphirre.)

i will take out all my obvious hacked pokemon i have lots of legit hacked pokemon have have proper movesets and abilities.

Drakai
3rd September 2008, 1:15 PM
vtush if you want a list of hacked pokemon (including legits) the number is: 233 but i use about 10 of them for non competative battling but use afuuly legit team for tournaments.

Megatrainer, I just found this back a page posted by Black Murder Heavangelon:

To anyone who wants to challenge me, you will have to pm me that you want to challenge me. Only do so when I am online.
So try PMing him, hopefully that will work =)

Gotian, do you want to battle me tomorrow evening? I've not battled for a while, so I'm a little rusty, and I've not got time tonight.

I believe Rodrigo's now ready for battles, give him a PM and he may sort out a weekend battle. I'll give you a battle sometime too, just let me know what evenings you're free!

Just to let the leaders know, there's a challenger at Theme League HQ; I may try to persuade them to relocate here , but that might not be possible. For some reason Cwidderb, she's specifically challenged your battle thread first :P

Gotian, I have your winner's prize now, just let me know when you're available to get it - I'm aware that you might be sufffering some trouble from Ike, so I'll keep the bagon safe until you're ready to receive it ^^

This sounds like a great thing to do, but unfortunately I won't have lvl 100s for a while lol... will this league still be open after the competition is over? Or is the end of the competition the end of the league?

pirate555
10th September 2008, 8:45 AM
Nope, the league will continue after the first wining leader's challenge with a new first prize, and hopefully it'll keep running smoothly!
You don't necessarily need level 100s - You can always request to play with the wi-fi Level 100 battle mode, where your pokes are automatically raised to that level before battling. But if you don't feel ready to challenge yet, then don't worry! Come whenever you feel prepared.

I'll be available for battles tonight, as far as I know,

Geez, that's close! Perhaps a battle worthy of putting in the HQ logs? :P
On the subject of our HQ, it's our 6 month anniversary (We actually made it that far...*blink* o_o) on Saturday, and I've got something small planned for that on HQ, so look out for it. It is small, but it's taken a bit of time to sort out...

Femme Fatale and Xyden, thanks for challenging! Would you like your names added to the challenger list? - It's not necesssary, but it's nice to have your win count posted somewhere on the thread.
As for your challenges, I'll be available for battles late tomorrow night, or Saturday afternoon/evening. Sorry I'm not easily available, it's been a busy first week back at college. Let me know when you're free! That applies to all the other challengers too,

Last night I battled Black Murder Heavangelon and his gym and it went down to a 3v1 with me leading then with his last pokemon he was able to come back, it was a very good battle though I lost.

We had another battle for sport afterwards which went down to a 1v1 my gallade VS his darkrai and I managed to defeat him.

Pirate I would love to challenge you again if you have time this weekend also can you please answer my PM when you get a chance, thank you.

Hey Pirate, good to see that you got the clan up and running again. I'm finally back on Wi-Fi and would like to be added to the challenger list. My gym team still isn't up and running (but I tested some of it and it didn't do too great anyway), so I suppose I'll try to catch up to LordFeraligatr's record...

pirate555
13th September 2008, 9:36 AM
Thanks Vinyacoire, I'll add you to the challenger's list, it's good to hear from you! And Gotian, I'd be happy to battle you again, perhaps I'll start covering my type weaknesses properly this time... :P

It's 6 months of Theme Leagueing today, so at HQ there's a small list of pokes I'm trading free to say thanks for your commitment; it applies to all the current leaders =) Alternatively you can PM me and ask for the list, if you prefer. Included are event celebis, mews and jirachis.

And to reiterate, I'll be available for battling later today!

Also, apologies for any PMs I haven't replied to recently. For some unbeknown reason (part time, part lethargy) I've been shockingly bad at returning messages these past few days, but I'll try to rectify that tomorrow when I've got more time. That's all!

Hello! Nice to see battles going on, leaders around, etc.
Welcome to Gotian, who'll be taking on the Elite Four post now. Gotian's already proved a good challenger, so no doubt they'll excel as a leader!
"Freak owns", we have a battle tomorrow right? Who else would like to challenge then? It'll have to be arranged as I have family round, so I can't spend the day in front of a computer screen hanging around :P
I'm updating stuff on the first post now. That's two wins for you now, is it "Freak Owns"?
Also some leaders are still due an event just for being around; come and claim it at HQ or PM me!

23rd September 2008, 8:54 AM
LordFeraligatr summed up your options pretty nicely there :P

It's often difficult to find leaders online at a certain point in time; we all have school/college/work plus other errands which mean of course that we're harder to find here. Not to mention time differences which can be hellish sometimes for challenging - Your post last night was too late for me to possibly reply to.

That's why its best that challengers PM leaders or post times that they're available to battle later on. I can battle you later tonight as well as tomorrow afternoon/evening, so let me know if you'll be around on Serebii then and I'll send you a PM!

Speaking of crazy time differences - "Freak Owns", if I was to come on wi-fi at 11:30 tonight, would you be around? That'd be 8:30am your time I believe, but you may be busy. Perhaps I could come on earlier later if there's any chance of you being able to battle around then.

pirate555
23rd September 2008, 11:07 PM
Absolutely I'll give you a battle when I see you around; how about tomorrow? I have a few new pokes I'd like to try out in battle, though I'll have to use level 100 mode as they're not all fully trained yet.
About your request for gym rules, I'll get back to you on that one - I'll ask a couple of challengers about it and see how they'd feel making three challenges and sticking to a concrete team, as they're the ones maing the extra effort, not me :P
Pirate

Gotian
23rd September 2008, 11:44 PM
well isnt that the idea of challenging the Elite 4? Using a concrete team to defeat all of them, instead of switching poke's to get their weakness and over power them? The main reason why I requested that is because if someone can win in that situation they deserve to be the champion, and trust me, I wont be unfair and choose OP pokemon because chances are that the challenger will have pokemon to cover all if not most of the different types they may fight against.

"Freak" owns
24th September 2008, 10:05 AM
i am finding it very hard to organise battles, it's not only that my time is zone very different from everyone elses but it is also that many people only have time to battle on weekends.

Please gym leaders, pm me.

Okay, you've made your argument very well there =) I'll amend your rules for you then.

"Freak owns" would you possibly be available 9am your time or 3pm your time? Because I could be awake early or late to meet you in battle then, if that was possible.
I'm also supplying a runner's up prize, by the way, just to make sure the competition's still entirely open :P
I'll be available for battles quite a bit later tonight,

Well considering how we're the last two trainers before they are crowned the champion I think its fitting that our challenges be much different than any others. So I still stand by my rules.

Hi guys, how is everybody to those at school college or uni hows it like being back in term ?. Bdog1 (if your ready), weeble, cwidderb and the elite four this sunday i'll be able to battle any time except between 2pm and 5pm (GMT+1) or alday monday. If any of you are able to battle please PM me. Cwidderb and Gothian i'm looking forward to our rematches. If any of the gym leaders that i've already played would like a friendly match to test new pokemon or ideas please feel free to PM me.

Pirate, I have suspicion that "Freak" owns is a hacker.

On the first turn, my Weavile set up Protect and his Machamp's Dynamicpunch went through. I'll go confront him now.

28th September 2008, 10:03 AM
im not a hacker, how dare you accuse me of that. the no guard ability ensures all moves land without fail. also my phone stuffed up my wi-fi thats why it disconnected.

why would i dc i was beating you 6-5 and you had two pokemon on very low health

Yep, congrats on those two matches this morning, I enjoyed them both ^^ And both times a Gengar really 'took my team to town', as it were, so I'll make some changes concerning that =P
I've updated win counts, but challengers please let me know if there any wins I've not accounted for yet. 3 Days to go until the September prize is awarded, but don't worry if you're behind, there'll be a new competition for the October month. Incidentally the deadline is at the end of September 30th (Heh, nobody pointed out I'd put September 31st!), so battles on Tuesday still count.

"Freak Owns", yep, you're now eligible to challenge the Elite Four.

Thank you for challenging Jacks mannequin, I've added you to the challenging list, as well as Lucarioman101, who's returned to resume their challenge; welcome!
I'll be around later again if anybody else wishes to challenge me,

just to let people know when they fight me, I dont care how you got your pokemon as long as they have legit moves and stats. I know some people frown on this, but its fine in my book because some people (like myself) cant go to events because they dont have any here.

Question about your rules: What's to stop you creating a counter team for each person after you battle them once? Seems a bit...stupid...to me.

i beat gotian once today though i still need to beat him one more time to get the overall win

with one day left the league seems to me heading in lordferaligators favour but i still have a chance to win

pirate555
29th September 2008, 8:43 AM
I don't have time for battles now, I'm just on my way out.
- Just to make it clear though, you don't necessarily have to challenge the Elite Four in order. I want it to be as easy as possible for challengers to get their battles in, and if say, they had to wait a week for one leader to return from holiday (or a ban =P) it would really slow down their progress. Also, there hasn't been any sort of test for the elite four, so they aren't necessarily in rank order. Challenge in whatever order you like! The only order-feature that's important is that 3 leaders have to be beaten before starting to challenge the elite four; that's all. I may clarify that on the first post,

Don't worry, the Theme League is for people of all skills abilities to challenge, and I bet you won't be as bad as you think =)
We're always accepting challengers, this is (hopefully) a league with no start date or end date; the competitions just run on a monthly basis as an incentive to keep the challenging going. You can use whatever team you like, you don't need a theme - though if you want to make one for fun, that's perfectly fine too,

Not these ones, because the maximum wins a challenger can get on the League is 12, and for a leader its unlimited. It's an interesting idea though, I could put a second 'leader's challenge' on, I suppose...Maybe next month!

Good game Zog, and sorry I was such an earthquake fiend =P I'm not entirely sure why I switched milotic into a thunderpunching poke anyway...But otherwise I made relatively few mistakes for once! And wow, I'd never seen a magnezone in my game before =D

Welcome to Pkmn Wifi Battler Nick and Dracondix, I've added you to the challenging list, have a good challenge! I hadn't realised the Mstery league had disappeared, it's a shame, we really need a good team of leagues to make this sub-forum more valuable to serebii...
I've also made other necessary updates such as win counts to the first post, it's fairly straightforward when you're all making sure to let me know what's going on, but PM me/post if i've missed anything significant out.
Good to see lots of battles going on here anyway, I myself should be around for battles for some of the time today and tomorrow, though not tonight.

I have this month's prize decided, and I think it's super! A little hard to let it go, but it's gotten dusty in my ingame PC....

Highest Win Count in October Wins: Shiny Roserade level 65, EV trained in Special attack and speed. (Non-beneficial nature, just to be clear) ;407;

Runner-up Prize: UT shiny golem (Graveler caught at lev 53, simply traded to evolve, no other training. Nicknamed 'Maestro') ;076;

So good luck everybody!

Can I just ask - Is it the most wins in the month alone, or the most cumulative wins at the end of the month (I.e - do the wins for September count?)
Good question - Currently it's cumulative, seeing as there's only a maximum 5 win count lead, however I'll probably have to change that system next month once the highest win count is unreasonably high for anyone to challenge in 30 days. It wasn't an issue before because the highest win count was only 2 or 3, so I overlooked the problem that there might be later on...Thanks for pointing that out, now I can plan for it =)

I can't battle any more tonight, it's late, but I'll be about again tomorrow!
Old School Fanatic and jaddev, thanks for your challenges, I'll add you to the challenging list on the first post - Good Luck!

On the subject of the challenging list, I'm removing some of the challengers who have been inactive for a long time now. If you're a challenger whose name is removed and you're thinking, "I've been planning a team all this time and I've nearly got it ready!" (I'm impressed by your effort if you actually took this long =P ) Or you still want to carry out your challenge and for whatever reason you haven't gotten round to it, let me know - I'll reinstate your name straight away! I just don't think it's useful to have a challenger list of twenty-five people where only ten have posted/PMed leaders more than once.

pirate555
7th October 2008, 6:19 PM
Thank you for letting me know Femme, I hadn't been aware of Fallen one's absence, because some leaders do prefer to operate by PM. But now Black Murder Heavangelon's taken over position one of the Elite Four, congratulations BMH! And thanks for stepping in ^^
If you've already battled him as a leader, the win still stands for gym 1, so just ignore whoever becomes the new leader in that position for your challenge. But you'll fight for a second time with his team for the Elite Four wins. Hope that makes sufficient sense...

So, new gym postion available! *Copies and pastes statement made in first post*;
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After an exit and a mini-reshuffle, there is now a gym position available, Gym 1! If you want to apply, check first that:
1. You're around often on Serebii. We have a lot of active and regular challengers, so we need our leaders to be the same!
2. That you can prepare a team in 2 weeks! You'd need to start accepting challengers as soon as possible. And don't forget, you need a theme!

If you think that's fine, and you'd still like to apply for the position then PM me at pirate555 with this form filled in:

Name:
Friend Code:
Gym name :
Theme:
Rules:
Prize:

I will award the position on a first come first serve basis, to make this fair and open. Good luck!

I'll be mentioning this regularly as long as it's still ongoing - We need a new leader in the Theme League for position 1 - Check the first post for further details, or my most recent post before this one^. Edit - Not any more!

I've made necessary updates to the first post, please check and ensure I've got it right!

Sorry to those who I missed last night, I'll try and arrange another time soon. Pkmn Wifi Battler Nick, I managed to make the 5:30am battle time (miraculous), but I didn't spot you on wi-fi. Perhaps my time-zone calculations were wrong, or wi-fi was just playing up. I'll do my level best to figure out another battle time.
And my apologies Gotian, I saw you on wi-fi last night, but I was awaiting a challenger so I couldn't battle you. Maybe next time I see you there!
Oh, and another wi-fi related thing; if as a challenger you find me on wi-fi and I suddenly disconnect, I may just be getting the appropriate team, so look out incase I come back within 2 mins =P

I can't battle tonight, I'm catching up with a lot of Uni-related work, and I assume that if my parents found me on my DS they might just break the device in half. Maybe tomorrow!
Dracondix, you can either train up a legendary, or I'll go without one for our battle, I should be able to manage, as long as you accept that the filler poke may not be quiet as 'angelic' looking!

To anyone challenging the elite four already, mew will be here on the 13th again, I believe =)

I would like to join the league as a challenger. I may not be able to battle for a couple days, though. But I'll start issuing challenges soon.

Welcome to the newest member of the Theme League team, Yellow Diamond, who will be taking over ownership of Gym 1! YellowDiamond, if you'd like a practise battle I'll be more than happy to do so, though timewise it may be difficult because I think there's a large time difference (Unless you like pming at 3am =P ).

Thanks, The Landord, I'll add you to the challenging list, enjoy your challenge and good luck! And feel free to delay your challenge by a little while if you need some time to train.

Pkmn Wifi Battler Nick, sorry I didn't stay on long enough to catch you; as it was 5:30am I figured I had to catch a bit of sleep before school, so I left at 12:45 your time. I'll come on at exactly the same time tonight though, so look out for me!

I may be available for battles late tonight,
Pirate
