Members List & Ranks:
Userbars provided by:
Spoiler:- Mew's Universe Shop:
Team SeaSoul is proud of having the following members:
Ranks from least to greatest
Deck Swabber Magikarp
You're just a small fish, flailing in the ocean. But you have dreams of leaping to great heights. Congratulations on finding a school, there's strength in numbers.
You now have goals and have learned to defend yourself against dangers. But you still have a long way to go, better hurry up!
You're getting your sea legs now! You know your way around the lagoon and are now better privileged for it. Keep going!
You're gaining notoriety around the sea. Smaller foes fear you and stay away. You now have bigger ambitions.
Master Chief Crawdaunt
You're a crusty old salt with your own territory. Time to take the offensive.
The party doesn't start til you walk in. Smaller members look up to you. Time to make us proud.
You know your way around the sea and make it rain on your haters. But can you break into the ultimate level?
You own the sea. A hegemony to be feared. Congratulations on your journey; you are in a tier with no match.
Only available upon defeating the Four Heavenly Kings while ranked Politoed
Officers serve the members of TSS through administrative tasks and providing services. Their ranks remain permanent as they hold their roles. With the exception of Fleet Admiral and First Mate (leader and co-leader), they are all considered equal in authority.
Kingdras are clan testers. They are proven battlers with substantial comprehension of the metagame and strategy. Battling them is required for advancement through the ranks. They can also provide battling advice to help you on your journey. Spoiler:- Testers:
Counters take on the tedious response of recording achievements by clan members and reporting them to the clan leader. Their work, which often goes unappreciated, keeps the clan being updated efficiently.
Tournament Boss Empoleon
Empoleons are in charge of planning, organizing, and managing tournaments for the clan. They are creative and organized.
Shop Administrator Starmie
Starmies run the clan shop and provide shop-related services. They have provided TSS with a first-class clan shop capable of meeting a battler's needs, as well as assisting members in making their pokemon battle-ready.
Xat Owner Kabutops
Kabutops are responsible for quality management of the Xat. They make sure mods are doing their job and supervise in TSS social activities.
Blinky the Mew
To rank up requires a battle with a tester. All the new registered members will be Magikarps. Once a week you will be permitted to battle a tester, assuming you have the required number of wins. You may attempt to rank up from Magikarp immediately after signing up; in fact, it is highly recommended that you seek a battle with a tester after you join. Upon battling a tester, they deem if you are worthy of a rank up. Rank up battles are determined by performance, not by outcome. You are not obligated to win the match, just prove you are ready to step up into the next rank. It is your responsibility to contact a tester to arrange a battle, as well as knowing when you are eligible for one. You earn points by ranking up too; so remember to PM the points counter afterwards!
Tests are available in 5th generation PO Singles, Wi-Fi Singles, and Wi-Fi Doubles
Single battles will be 6 on 6 standard rules
Double Battles will be 6 on 6 flat wifi rules
The Four Heavenly Kings: COMING THIS CHRISTMAS!!
The Four Heavenly Kings (4HK)is a mysterious in-clan league based on the Elite Four ("Four Heavenly Kings" is the Japanese translation). There will be eight kings; four for PO, four for Wi-Fi. Defeating one of the sets earns you an automatic rank-up to Lieutenant Politoed. If already a Politoed, then the trainer earns the elite rank of Captain Kyogre, the only way to earn this coveted rank. This league will be established later following other administrative tasks, most likely over winter break. If you think you are worthy of being named a Heavenly King (or Queen!), get as many battles in and build a reputation as one of our top battlers.
To move up in clan ranks, you will need to win battles. When you battle a fellow clan member, post the results in the clan and ask them to confirm the win. For wins of other types, we will use the honor system, but will ask who you batted on occasion to check your honesty. All wins, however, need to be reported to the Wins Counting Officer (currently Master_Steve). You can only count one win over a specific person each week.
1) Win a battle
2) Fill out the form below
3) PM to Master_Steve
4) Wins should be added to the clan OP weekly.
Reason for battle examples: Friendly, tournament, league, clan war, test, otherHTML Code:[B]Name[/B]: [B]Date[/B]: [B]PO or Wi-Fi?[/B]: [B]Who did you beat?[/B]: [B]Are they a TSS member?[/B]: [B]What was the score?[/B]: [B]Reason for battle?[/B]:
Points are the currency used in TSS. To have your points guaranteed added to your name please PM the points treasurer entitled POINTS and include the date and details. The more points you have, the more pokemon/items you can purchase from the shop. Points are added on a WEEKLY basis. I generally add them on SUNDAYS . Note that TSS Shop is right below the original thread with more information about it.
You can gain points by doing certain things:
- PROPERLY completing the Registration form (READ HOW TO FILL IT OUT) (10 Pts).
- Inviting a new member, with confirmation from the other member (5 Pts).
- Defeating a Serebii member which is not a part of TSS, with confirmation from the other battler by PM/VM (1 Point).
- Defeating a TSS member, with confirmation from the other member (3 Pts).
Note: Points will be added only once per week for each two members once they battle. In other words you can't gain points more than once per week for battling the same person.
- Ranking up (5 Pts).
- Completing an art request for a TSS member (with proof) (3 pts).
- Defeating a Serebii Battle Frontier Brain (15 pts).
- Completing the Serebii Battle Frontier (50 pts).
- Defeating one of the TSS Four Heavenly Kings (15 pts).
- Completing one division of the TSS Four Heavenly Kings (40 pts).
- Defeating all of the TSS Four Heavenly Kings ( 75 pts.)
- Volunteering by doing something good for TSS (depends on voluntary).
Each and every time you earn points, you should inform the 'Points Counter' about it so he can inform the leader about all the points updates later. Just Fill the following form and send it to the 'Points Counter'.
HTML Code:Total Gained Points: Reason (Choose One): Winning a (Battle)s - My Clan Job - Inviting a Member - Voluntary Specified Reason:
Also there will be random opportunities for points, such as gifts, competitions, and quizzes, in the future which will reward you with more points by the time.
Quizzes and other special events:
Every so often there will be special events in TSS, such as giveaways and quizes. They will be linked to the news buliten at the top of the post . For quizes, the first one to give a correct answer will rewarded with certain amount of points. Answers shall be posted here in the thread.
Jobs and Employees:
If you wish to be considered for a job here at TSS, we need you to be an active member and remain active. We request that at minimum to be considered for a job you must have been a member for at least 2 weeks and have ranked up to at least Chief Tentecruel. It is expected of you that with a clan job you will serve Team SeaSoul for the long-term; therefore, if you leave TSS your job will become vacant and will not receive it back if you return. Several positions are only available as clan officer ranks, hence they will be changed only on an ad-hoc basis.

To all members, please note that we have a Clan Xat. Though posting the link is against forum rules for advertising, please look to my sig for the link. PLEASE do not repost the xat link in a post or you will be at risk for moderation, message it to someone instead. Feel free to place it in your signature for yourself and friends. Our Xat conversations can be rated PG-13ish on occasion, so fair warning, but don't push your luck. Xat use is highly encouraged; it's an easy way of finding battles and is a great way to socialize with your comrades.
If you are from a different clan and would like to be a member of our Xat, please get in touch with ME first. Using our Xat is a privilege, not a right. Be aware that outside members clans are considered ambassadors of their clans and for the sake of their own and clan's honor should remain diplomatically courteous at all times; we expect the same from our membership in other xats. If we think you are acting hostile and/or are flaming/trolling, we reserve our right to restrict you from our xat as we see necessary. If you think you have been unjustly discriminated or that you were in error, you may negotiate over PM, but be reminded that it is a privilege and a sign of trust to be allowed on our xat.
Also, once again I would like to remind everyone that this thread is for discussing Team SeaSoul, not your personal lives. This is a clan thread not a social club, so please make off-topic posts in the clan, such as how your day at school was because
no one caresit is spam. Just go to the Xat and relax with your friends. Also avoid flaming or controversial posts (especially about other SPPf members); if you really need to vent your frustrations you may respectfully discuss in private on the Xat, although do be aware that a) there may be non-TSS members and b) we do moderate the Xat, so do not go postal or else.
This section will be revamped later
Art Talents Gallery:
This section will display TSS banners, or artworks made by the members to be used in the members sigs. Please give credit to the respected artist.
Spoiler:- Show All:
Please Give Credit.
Team SeaSoul is a division-less clan. We will remain one family united, not separated. Do not propose divisions; it won't happen. If you are a clan seeking a merger, please note that we would expect you to join our large family, not be segregated into a separate division.
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.
