Welcome to what will soon be the Toughest PO League on the Serebii Forums! – This League is very different from most leagues, as instead of Gym Leaders and Elite four using Monotype team, they will be using Global or semiglobal Effects – Now I know you’re wondering, - What the hell is a "Global or semiglobal Effect!?" - well basically, it is one of several moves that affect the entire battlefield, or most of the battlefield (think triples, where it affects one whole team) - things like Gravity and Trick room are Global effects, while other things like Entry Hazards, Screens and Safeguard are deemed Semiglobal
Anyway, due to this, The challenger doesn't have the advantage of getting to use more than one type - as the opponent gets to aswell! So as a consolation, you will get to choose 8 Pokemon to start your challenge, and then another 2 (debatable) when you challenge the Elite Four - This means that you may swap Pokemon between battles to compensate for varying strategies...

Rules
(1)
1 - Follow all Serebii Forum rules.
2 - PO (Pokemon Online) is mandatory for the League. Wi-fi will not be played.
3 - No flaming, spamming or trolling.
4 -CounterTeaming (CTing) is strictly prohibited. If anyone has proof of CTing for a battle, the battle in question will be invalid.
5 - Team revealing is also strictly prohibited, do not reveal any Pokemon or strategy after battling a Gym Leader, Elite Four or the champion.
6 - You must always save all battle logs, otherwise any battle will be invalid if challenged.
7 – Smogon’s Standard OU Tiers are used, with some exceptions, please read “the Tiers” section (below) even if you know the banlist through and through
8 – Gym leaders and Elite four members must maintain a degree of activity, making sure they can accept most challenges. I reserve the right to replace or remove any Gym Leader or Elite Four member I deem inactive, you may appeal this, but if you are going to be inactive, make sure you warn me in advance. A substitute may be provided in your absence...


The Tier
(2)
Because not everybody knows what Smogon’s Banlist is, I’m going to imput it here, with the addition of bans specific to this league. (yes, there are league-specific bans, deal with it)
Please note this is STANDARD OU - that means no unreleased Dream World Pokes - if you can't get it on the DS, you can't use it on PO...
Items
All unobtainable Items (Soul Dew, for example)
All items that increase Evasion (BrightPowder, Lax Incense)

Moves
All unreleased Dream World Moves
All moves that increase Evasion only (Double Team, Minimize)
All instant OHKO moves (Fissure, Guillotine, Horn Drill, Sheer Cold)
All moves that could counteract Gym Leaders or the E4: Sunny Day, Rain Dance, Sandstorm, Hail, Trick Room, Wonder Room, Magic Room and Sky Drop (Gravity Glitch)
(See "Abilities" for reasonings)

Abilities
All Unreleased DW Abilities (such as Sand Rush Sandslash)
Drizzle
Drought
Moody
Sand Stream
Snow Warning
(Now, before you go all “WTF” this has nothing to do with my skills in weather [I love weather teams] – I want Players to be able to experience Battling a Weather team without fighting it in a Weather war - This League is meant to challenge Trainers to extend them to new heights. Challengers need to learn in order to beat this league. As such, the Weather Summoning abilities are Banned for Challengers)

How to Join

Gym Leaders
(5)
The Gym leaders may be challenged in any order, but it is best you choose the leader with the least current challenges to start with. Gym leaders may have no more than 5 current challenges, so they don't get overcrowded.

The Champion
(7)
The champion will only apply to those who have defeated the League. When you defeat the league and the current champion (if there is none than woot) you may choose to become the Champion (suggested you accept :p) – you will keep the same 8 Pokemon you used to defeat the league, and when challengers defeat the league, they will challenge the current Champion in an attempt to overthrow them - even if you lose to the champion, you still will have defeated the league.

-Nobody-

--NOTICE--

The league here is now formerly sponsored by the SSIS: Smogon Secret Intelligence Service (http://www.smogon.com/forums/group.php?groupid=1026) - what this means is, I have put up a thread (or will very soon) that represents this league - Members from the group will be open to challenge the league via that thread, where I will post here for them - some may join Serebii, or use their serebii accounts to challenge leaders specifically, but otherwise I'll VM the leaders here on their behalf...
I encourage all Gym Leaders to register a smogon account to ease confusion and allow for easier VMing/PMing your challengers, but that is totally up to you. It is advised, but not compulsory...

---

Okay everyone! I'm going to be updating the OP now, so please don't sign up as of yet. However, make your SU posts and get them perfect now, as come friday (LATE Thursday night/early Friday morning for those in america) I'll open the thread for battles, meaning you can battle Gym leaders the moment you are accepted and have allocated a time for them!

Thanks to everyone for all your support!

EDIT: beat Icebluedragon

the first battle I made one mistake for my team...I forgot I wasnt aloud rain so I got rid of it. making me lose 6-0. IBD rematch me. 2nd round I won 6-0. finally, for the last round, I won 5-0 overall a gg

Dark Pulse94
9th November 2011, 4:37 AM
Ok, well done boby, I might have to see what your team's like

this is for everyone to hear. Considering I have banned Rain dance and TR, should I can rapid spin for the hazards leader? It's entirely up to you guys, but if it is, I'll also add a split-challenge method, where screens, tr, and hazards will be battled after you beat the first five leaders (or at least three of them) - it's up to you guys, so give me your two cents, and I'll cash it in for a dollar update accordingly
this vote is open to challengers too! So if you are going to sign up, vm your vote to me with your su. I'll secure your spot for the league...

^That's what makes this league what it is - A challenge to improve you. Don't worry, I'm thinking of having it so if you can't beat the first e4 after three attempts, you can change your team

Dark Pulse94
15th November 2011, 12:25 AM
^good point there. All challenges should be made via vm or pm and a time be organised. Under no circumstances may you assume a gym leader has forfeited due to a non-arrival. Also, no logs=invalid battle

Couple of questions:

~ Since your Sun Elite Four Leader is untested, would I possibly be able to try out for that spot?
~ Also, is this a League where you must use either Singles or Doubles, or does it not matter?

Dark Pulse94
17th November 2011, 4:49 AM
one: The sun e4 was tested and I accepted him, I just forgot to update the OP - thanks ^_^'
two: Singles unless stated otherwise, for example, the Tailwind Gym Leader could've chosen to battle doubles...
three: Just because you asked the above question, the league is on Pokemon Online, Smogon Server, Standard OU rules, NOT WiFi - 90% of people who play doubles use wifi is all :p

ShadowSplash
17th November 2011, 5:21 AM
Darn, alright. I was hoping I could get a spot. .______________.
I only play Doubles, but I do PO just as much as Wifi (if not more).

Anyways, thanks for the quick responses. ^^

Dark Pulse94
17th November 2011, 8:31 AM
Haha, you remind me of myself when I was a newb (very different from a n00b). I used to be the self-proclaimed King of Double Battles - I was a master at the tactics and still know a thing or two, but I've learned how to play singles as it's a much more common Metagame. I suggest you try to learn the competetive metagame in singles when you can...

ShadowSplash
17th November 2011, 9:51 PM
Eh, I'm not a newb or a noob. Just saying. I find Doubles to be much more interesting than Singles. Takes more thought and strategy than Singles, and overall more skill IMO. Pokemon is for a younger community, so that's why Singles is more popular.

I would like to get into Singles since it's more common, but it's just not as fun.

@Shadow - that's exactly what I had said too, but you'd be surprised the amount of strategy it takes to be sucessful in singles, just thanks to the sheer number of opponents...

well TBP hasn't been on for me to test, so he's still untested...

No, Showing a Challengers team will PREVENT counterteaming. Gym leaders are still testing their teams, but once they are complete, I will have them archived, just in case. You only get 8 Pokemon because I don't want you making a new team for each Gym, thus Counterteaming...

TyranitarFan
27th November 2011, 4:41 AM
so does that mean we can only have 1 team? cuz i have 3

Dark Pulse94
27th November 2011, 6:22 AM
You will most likely have to choose just one. Having three teams can be considered counterteaming, as you will choose your team based on the opponent, will you not?

Well it depends I guess, what do all the gym leaders think? I'd like a vote here, because this is as much your league as it is mine...

just 1 more thing, shouldnt you ban from the challengers hippowdon, tyranitar, abomasnow, politoad and ninetales?

Dark Pulse94
28th November 2011, 7:25 AM
Why? I already banned their abilities, they should be able to use them without their DW abilities.
IE, I'm not going to ban Flash Fire Ninetales, even though it's foolish to use it...
Plus (I don't know if it's out yet, but still) Unnerve T-tar, Soundproof ObamaSnow, and Sand Power Hippowdon might want to be used by challengers...

^One person said that having a user post their team before challenging the league would lead to CTing, where as I believe it to be the opposite. However, if Gym Leaders have multiple teams, such can also be considered CTing on the Gym leader's behalf...
