    Default The Trinity League



    ~~OFFICIAL Chatroom~~

    The Trinity League is a well-respected communal League that offers fun and challenging battle experiences for new and veteran players alike. The League strives to be open, welcoming, and mature. It is a unique League where players need to be strategic when team-building due to our “Trinity” concept, where Challengers face a Triad of Gym Leaders with one team.

    General Rules
    1) Read and follow all main SPPf rules.
    2) Respect & be polite to every member of this League; never insult anyone in any way (give the benefit of the doubt!).
    3) If there is a conflict, keep the League at peace and contact Thread Overseers.
    4) Do not cheat/hack (Pokesav, Pokegen, illegal traits through AR, etc.). This undermines the hard work and dedication our Leaders put into team building.
    5) SPPf battling Standard Rules & Smogon tiers are followed in this League. Additionally, Challengers & Gym Leaders may use only up to 2 non-Uber legendaries; the E3 are permitted up to 3. (Helpful resource: Smogon's Gen 6 Viability Ranking)
    6) Gym & E3 challenges are OU ΩRαS Wifi battles only. The Battle Frontier offers a niche for Pokémon Showdown trainers in addition to Wifi battles.
    7) Never cut the Wifi! You may be banned if League members identify you of doing so on purpose! If you have connectivity issues, mention it before a battle .
    8) Both Challengers and Leaders should post Battle Results into the thread. Where appropriate, update posts with further battle results. (don’t double-post)
    9) To arrange battles, contact Leaders directly through PM/VM.
    10) Have fun!! : )

    Just to make a better introduction, I'm the Water Type gym leader Dew Watatsumi. Gym will be open this Saturday since I'm a bit busy at the moment. If you want to battle, I'll be available almost anytime.

    Normally, we'd need an applicant with a team of 4 of the type ready to go, but since we just opened, as long as you can actively post at least once a week and accept a challenger at least once every two weeks, accepted!

    Sorry to disappoint, but theamazinhazin of the Spirit Force Triad is our Fire Gym Leader.
    All our posts are currently filled until we have an E4 (which likely we'll have within 1-2 weeks), but we'll be looking for four more Gym Leaders then out of the types currently not yet represented.
    You're more than welcome to challenge us in the meantime!

    So many type restrictions that its going to be difficult to make good challenging teams. Once I have something figured out for each triad, I'll challenge the league.

    You actually don't need to follow all of them, a dark type don't count as a counter on the normal gym, while it does count as a counter at mine(psychic), so you can actually run a team with 2 fighting types and 2 dark types and you won't be counter teaming anyone.

    Well, I was looking at the first triad and 2 steel, 2 rock and 2 flying. They technically don't counter all the gyms in that triad, but it would be considered a counter team.

    Hi ColtonL!

    Yes, shinies count as Gym representing Pokemon, provided they are (in your case) Grass type.
    Unfortunately(/fortunately) all our spots are covered at the moment. Once we have our E4 ready (likely in about 1-2 weeks) though, we'll be opening up 4 new positions with types not yet represented. I can put you on the waiting list for when we open up those 4 spots in the meantime.

    It woudn't, it's just that it isn't explained very well. The types listed are more like, types you need to watch out while making a team as using many of them may counter a certain gym.

    also are legendaries like celebi or shaymin allowed? (I won't be disappointed if I can't use one/either I'm just curious) :3
    As we follow Smogon rules (unless otherwise stated with a Gym Leader), both of those would be allowed.

    The counters vary on the gym leader you face not the whole triad on its own. Like if you are facing Water which is weak to Grass and Electric, you cant have no more than four pokes (like no whole teams made up of grass or electric) to face against that said type. In my case, 2 grass and 2 electric would be acceptable

    I think both Sito and Dew might be open for today if you'd still like to challenge them.
