"Welcome to TSS HQ"
Started at 16/April/2011
Clearly, there are only two attributes for water, GENEROUS and FIERCE. Both are contradictory and opposite. However, it isn't impossible when it comes to which is represented in the wide, blue mirror of the sky… the ‘Sea’.
Team SeaSoul STRIKES BACK!!!
It is time ‘as promised’, for the popular and the well-known TSS to rise and shine again under the roof of Serebii.net. Joining all the water type pokemon lovers to build a society wrapped and connected by the bold strings of friendship bonds which are established via battling, trading, chatting, and sharing the same love of the cute or the mighty water type pokemon.
Yea, it’s time to have FUN!!!

Members List & Ranks:
Team SeaSoul is proud of having the following members:
A Rank for Leaders and Co-Leaders.
Being a sea dragon means that you’re amazing, therefore your task is to test other battlers around. This rank can’t be reached except by becoming a tester.
You’re a legend at last; you’ve reached your goal and became an Elite battler of Team SeaSoul. The team needs you more than ever.
Not only powerful, but beautiful as well… you’re a very attractive sea serpent, yet everyone fears you, except legends.
You’re very good, and with that unbreakable shield on your back, you’ve nothing to worry about other than proceeding.
Now you’re a dangerous creature which many small fishes avoid, your glowing eyes and sharp fangs show that you have the potential to go higher.
You’re getting better and more serious now, but it doesn’t mean that you’re very attractive yet.
You’ve just started your long journey and recognized the right path to follow, but you’re still an easy prey, keep going.
You’re an unrecognized common fish; you won’t get higher than this if you haven’t been tested.
All the new registered members will be Basculins. Once a week you will be permitted to battle a tester or purchase a rank up. You may rank up from Basculin immediately after signing up. Upon battling a tester, they deem if you are worthy of a rank up. Rank ups are determined by performance, not by outcome. You are not obligated to win the match, just prove you are ready to step up in rank.
Single battles will be 6 on 6 standard rules
Double Battles will be 6 on 6 flat wifi rules
To purchase a rank up is as follows:
Dewott – 30
Sharpedo – 45
Lapras – 60
Kyogre – the only way to enter Kyogre is to successfully win a BoS with the testers authorization. You may enter Milotic Only
Kingdra-The only way to Get to this Elegant rank is to become a Tester
Suicune – Reserved for Leaders Co Leaders
The Battle of Supremacy:
This is an event battle which will take place once every period of time and each member can participate and have only one battle per event. This event is similar to ranking-up battles. But in this battle the tester will be allowed to use any pokemon 'including banned pokemon' and any item 'including banned items'. In other words, the tester can break the standard rules while the challenger is forced to follow them. Only winning this battle will promote you to Milotic rank directly, with earning 20 Pts as a reward. If you already were a Milotic, then and only then you'll be a Kyogre. note that single battles of supremacy are 6V6. However, for those who use the double battling style, they should follow the standard rules as well, and before the test battle, bring 6 pokemon with you, then show them to your tester and choose 4 among them for the battle. You can only battle using Wi-Fi battles for the double battling style. It's your only way and chance to take the challenge and be the SUPREME BATTLER!!!
SeaSoul isn't only active as a clan, it also has a very active League which contains a lot of challengers and a hard team of Gym Leaders an Elite Four members.
winning badges or symbols will help you earning more points, you don't want to miss the fun.

Also, this is the Team SeaSoul Clan Topic. NOT the 'how was your summer' or 'good morning' topic.

How to detect non-legit pokemon? (Important for all)
This is a useful way to check whether if you or your opponent had used a hacked/pokesaved/over maximum stats pokemon in a battle between both of you. The purpose of this is to help you avoid using non-legit pokemon, or to detect if your opponont have used a non-legit pokemon if you were sure of your pokemon legitimacy, which will therefore help everybody to follow the rules without any mistakes. Just follow the steps, and note that this is only applicable for Wi-Fi, IR, Wireless, and Subway battles:
1- After having the battle, record it. You can find the recorded battle in your Vs. Recorder.
2- Go to any pokemon center.
3- Talk to the rightmost lady on the 2nd floor, she’s the nearest to the giant globe.
4- Choose ‘Battle Videos’.
5- Now choose ‘View or Upload’.
6- You’ll have to save before you go in.
7- Once you’re in, and after connecting, choose ‘Send Battle Video’.
8- Choose ‘Yes’.
9- Now, the battle video will either be sent, or not. If it was successfully sent, then all the pokemon involved in the battle are legit, including your opponent’s. However, if the battle video wasn’t successfully sent and the following message appeared: “There appears to be a problem with the Pokemon in the Battle Video” as shown in the picture below, then there’s at least one hacked/pokesaved/over maximum stats pokemon involved in the battle, and it might be either in your team or in your opponent’s, or maybe both of you had hacked/pokesaved/over maximum stats pokemon in your teams.
So please try to check any pokemon you got by trading or GTS, before using them in battles to avoid being considered against the rules.
Note: pokesaved pokemon might have legit stats, but still they are considered as hacked pokemon by the GTS, and the same message in the picture will appear when you send the battle video which has a pokesav pokemon involved. So they’re strictly not allowed despite their legit stats, and that's in order to make it easier for everybody to detect non-legit pokemon without mixing them with the legit ones.
