At the top of the food pyramid are the clan's leaders. Handpicked and artisan crafted, the leaders are among the top battlers on serebii and not to be underestimated. Their critical thinking, common sense, and battling potential puts them at the top. This is a place that towel boys can only dream of, and major seniority is required in order to be considered for a placement here. Although leaders won't have that much effect on the war team, they assist the Paladins with their ace team building and battling skills.
The highest rank that non-leaders can achieve, reserved for the strongest and most distinguished battlers; almost always a presence on war teams. The paladins will be the core members of the war team. Only the elite battlers that lack the critical thinking and political skills will be placed here. Although paladins are as good or better as some of the leaders, some do not have potential to lead the clan and will remain a paladin forever. You must show strength, endurance, and the ability to destroy the competition with gusto in order to be considered for placement in these high ranks. Some will become leaders and some will not, you decide.
Spoiler:- Paladin Members:
Tough battlers, will make up the trimmings of the war team and possibly be substitutes. To earn qualifications to become a knight, one must be able to hold their own against the paladins while beating all of the rest of the clan easily. Knights are the most flexible members of the clan and should be able to control the lower ranks when given orders. The Knights should have the ability to breed, train, and build teams at an efficient level in order to be considered for paladin. The core skills to becoming an excellent pokemon player will be learned in this rank. Good luck Knights, hop on your ponyta and ride on!
Spoiler:- Knight Members:
Trainers that are still going at it to become tough. These young bucks have shown potential in the ring but are still blossoming into the full fledged warriors that are in the higher ranks of this clan. The only possible places that these guys have in a war is a last resort substitute if a paladin or knight gets injured in battle and we need a quick replacement; "next man up", as they say in sports. Regular battles against clan leaders and paladins are necessary here in order to keep the progress up. A requirement to get into this rank is team building at a basic level as well as access to wifi as well as pokemon online and pokemon showdown.
Spoiler:- Fighter Members:
The Jennys From The Block of the clan. New guys in town ready to be promoted quickly. They realize that they need work but are willing to put in time and effort in order to prove themselves as great clan members and as great community members in general. A quick requirement for this rank is that you must be somewhat versed in the art of pokemon as in ev training and iv breeding are must knows as well as being able to team build at a more basic level. There will be certain ladder requirements that a member must meet as well as doing well in intense Crimson Fury battles with the paladins and leaders.
Spoiler:- Trainee Members:
Ahhh, the weaklings. The young Ash Ketchums of the world making their way to the top. Just a fair warning, the journey to a paladin rank will not be easy and it will be a rough rode ahoy, but if you're up to the challenge, The Crimson Fury is more than willing to mold the lower ranked battlers into based freestylers that will have no business being messed with on the forums. Take notes kiddies, this is going to be a rough one for most of you, and some might not even make it through.
Spoiler:- Weakling Members:
The lowest rank of the clan. Although most people go to the Weakling Rank after initiation, if you have showed even less potential than a weakling, you will be placed in the towel boy rank. A long journey of battle tutoring, rough matches with leaders, and dedicated practice is right ahead of you. Don't be discouraged, Castelia wasn't built in a day and your battling techniques will take a while to perfect. Make sure to stay fresh and maybe just maybe you'll have a shot at the war team someday.
Spoiler:- Towel Boy Members:
Good luck and please don't be discouraged, anyone and everyone can move up in the clan if they put their mind to it!
