    Sorry there hasn't been an update on league stuff recently. Well, here's what's happened so far. I sent a PM to two of the league section mods, asking whether or not a noncomp league would be okay in the league section... because technically, it's under the forum for competitive pokemon.

    And as of yet, I've heard nothing back.

    Lately I've been thinking that we may as well just run this through the group. We can edit earlier posts with links to a gym post made by each leader. If I haven't heard back by this time next week, I'll let you all know what the next step is.

    Use the staff contact section, it was made so you wouldn't PM mods.
    I don't use "uber" Pokemon (because they're banned), I don't calculate stat values (the simulator does it for me), I don't use cheating devices (because I hardly ever play the actual game), I don't breed my way to perfection (because I use a simulator), and I do care about natures. I battle the most efficient way, so I can use my strategic skills to the fullest. I don't look down on others because of the way they play Pokemon, which non-competitive people seem to actually do more often. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

    I wouldn't have made that connection if you hadn't said anything, I'm so pathetic.

    Since we really haven't had any battle/trade discussion in a while, I'll start one up. I have the ability to breed DW dratini, DW murkrow, and DW vulpix, for anyone interested. Looking for some other rare DW ability pokemon, while I'm at it.

    I could be fine with trading for Dratini and/or Vulpix. What would you like, as I only have the basic places. By the way, when is the league going to begin (people set into ranks for leaders, elites, champs and the whole challenger to the gyms thing)?

    does anyone have a good moveset suggestion for kabutops? begging the training of my rock team, wondering what people think might be best
    For years you have all roamed this earth searching for what is most important to you. Have you found it? Yeah, you have, you just don't know it yet.

    First thought: Something for the grass types who will otherwise sit there and giga-drain you to death, just in case...

    It looks like you can breed in Aurora Beam from the likes of Shellder and Speal lines, That gives you a contingency if your wildcard (if you can even have one by the way you setup your gym) gets trumped. I wouldn't rely on it, but it does give you a backup.

    Feral: I woul;d be very interested in the Vulpix. What would you like, I probably don't have it, but we'll see.

    Hey all so not much recent news apart from welcome Ciliano to the group. Oh yeah Feralninja is bringing the league back in a massive way, so look out for that soon.

    I'd like to kindly ask that if anyone new wants to join the group or if you know of anyone who wants to join, that they ask Dracoburn, Feralninja, XMan96, Natural Trainer or :342: about this, they'll let me know over facebook or something since I'm never on here

    Hello! I'm Ciliano and I'm new and stuff. I've been battling competitively for almost 2 years, but I decided that spending months to create one team was too much of a hassle. Non-competitive battling is less time consuming and involves even more skill than competitive battles in my opinion.

    Default Darmanitan

    So while working on my team for my psychic gym and I came to something: Darmanitan with Zen Mode. Is that a wild card or a legal Dual Psychic/Fire and does anyone know of a good movepool that would be able to hold its own in battle?

    I'm going to rule that Zen Mode would be a wild card, because it doesn't start the battle as a psychic type. If it was psychic and then became fighting, I'd allow it. But since it has to enter battle as a fighting type, I can't in good conscience allow it to be considered psychic.

    I personally don't use darmanitan (didn't fit right with my current team dynamic) but I've toyed around with a few. Even without Iron Fist, its physical attacks are really powerful, but if you have a zen mode one, flare blitz is the way to go. Also, focus blast and flamethrower work very well in zen mode.

    Ok, then do you have a psychic you can recommend to replace it,as I can't think of who else to include. Also, as good as information as it is, Darmanitan is a fire type, not fighting

    I'd personally recommend an Alakhazam, Reuniclus, or Gothorita.

    What do you already have? I would suggest something with a good secondary type, as synergy is key even in monotype teams. Maybe Victini if you still want a fire-type.
    I don't use "uber" Pokemon (because they're banned), I don't calculate stat values (the simulator does it for me), I don't use cheating devices (because I hardly ever play the actual game), I don't breed my way to perfection (because I use a simulator), and I do care about natures. I battle the most efficient way, so I can use my strategic skills to the fullest.

    I have Magic Bounce Espeon, Gallade, Wobbuffet, Metagross, Starmie, and I could put DW Exeggutor, but it has awful everything. The thing with Victini, I would, but the Flat battle style doesn't allow it

    As stated, Alakazam is THE psychic type. It has a diverse movepool, good stats, and is cool, plain and simple. I'd also recomend Sigilyph for some diversity, Reuniclus for walling potential, and Jynx for trick rooming, skill swaping and ice punching insanity.

    TBH, I'm not sure on wobuffet. There's a reason he's banned from most comp play. I... I may need to make a ruling on this one...

    I guess this just isn't my day. I can see how Wobuffet is controversial, though. Thanks for the suggestions though.

    The more you hang around here you'll have something come to mind, or at least I did. If ever bored go and check out the fics that have been created by the people here. Hours of enjoyment. Just ask if you ever want to be in my first and I'll try to fit you in somewhere.
