Default Gym #6: Steel-Type

Gym #6: Steel-type



Congratulations, challengers! It would appear you've smelted the first five Gym Leaders, and have gotten to me in one, solid piece! Getting past me is no easy task; you'll need a steely resolve and a well-refined strategy that can surpass those of myself! Will you perform like a well-oiled machine? Or will you fail to gleam, and rust under the pressure? Challengers! Read on, and show me an ore that will rock me to the core!

1. General Rules & Mechanics
  • The Gym League consists of 8 gym leaders, each representing one type.
  • The battles will be conducted in the WiFi Club only.
  • The following games are the ones that can be used in the League:
    -Pokémon Black
    -Pokémon White
    -Pokémon Black 2
    -Pokémon White 2
  • A challenger must not reveal information about a gym leader's team to anyone.
  • A gym leader has the right to change members of his or her team.
  • The winner will receive the Mechanized Badge.
  • The winner will also receive my special prized adoptable, Beldum.

2. Battle Rules
  • All Pokémon to be used in battles must be within the allowed level margin: Lv80 - Lv100.
  • All battles are conducted as 6 vs 6 single battles.
  • Battlers are not allowed to change the order of their teams, as previewed in the Team Preview feature of the WiFi Club.
  • The use of Wonder Launcher is not permitted.
  • Hacked Pokémon cannot be used. Hacked Pokémon are those created through a cheat device, or Pokémon obtained using a hacked item.
  • Uber Pokémon are banned.
  • Hax Items are banned.
  • The ability, Moody, and move, Acupressure, are banned.
  • Having both the abilities, Drizzle and Swift Swim, in the same team is forbidden.
  • Sleep Clause: None of the players can put two of their foe's Pokémon to sleep. The player should wait until the sleeping Pokémon wakes up or faints in order for him/her to induce sleep upon another Pokémon. If a player has induced one of his/her foe's Pokémon to sleep, then he/she cannot use Yawn to force switches. He/She can still use Relic Song; if the target Pokémon falls asleep due to its secondary effect, the user does not lose the battle. If his/her foe has used Rest, he/she can still induce one of the foe's Pokémon to sleep. If the foe's Pokémon is put to sleep due to Effect Spore, the player can still induce one of the foe's Pokémon to sleep.
  • Species Clause: Two Pokémon of the same species are not allowed in the same team.
  • Evasion Clause: Any move or item that increases the evasion of your Pokémon is forbidden.
  • OHKO Clause: All One-hit Knock-out Moves are banned.
  • Self KO Clause: Using a move the knocks out both Pokémon, and these two are the only ones left, would cause the user of the move to lose. Recoil damage is not included in this clause, as the attacking Pokémon is considered the victor.

Breaking any of these rules results in the loss of the violator as well as any further punishment, decided by The Gym League Administration.

Well then, since I've recieved a challenged, I hereby welcome you to the Steel-type gym, Reun. I was waiting for your battle request, I think it'll be a close one. I should be on for the rest of the day to battle you. FC is in my profile, as always~

Edit:

...well, it would appear I got pretty creamed. I managed to launch an amazing ONE move, so I'm pretty sure you can have this *hands over Mechanized Badge*. Go forward with this, I hope you get to be an E4 member before anyone else ^^

Expect to see me on sometime tomorrow, around 5 PM to 8 PM EST. If you can't reach me then, I should be on at similar times on Thursday and Friday.

EDIT: *facedesk* One of these days I'll be able to get a concrete strategy up and win something, sweepers are getting the better of me ^_^' *hands over Mechanized Badge*

Due to current standings with gyms, I believe I've been shifted in position if I understand the league guide right.
So if I may, I challenge you to a gym battle!

Just checked to make sure you both beat SP, as there's now a gap bridging gyms 2 to 6, and you're both clear ^^

Your challenges are both accepted.

EDIT: GGs to Paradox! It was a bit of a close one for a while, but it was a well-played battle nonetheless ^^ *hands over Mechanized Badge*

EDIT 2: Someone didn't want me winning today... I have never witnessed Will-o-Wisp hit twice in a row, but 6 times? For a 75-accuracy move, it may as well have been Aerial Ace. So luck punched my team in the face today, but regardless, this is yours xD *hands over Mechanized Badge*

Thanks man.
Was a good battle, for sure. I especially liked the amount of mind games going on, especially near the end.

While Whimsicott is away, it looks like you're my next challenge.

I won't really be able to do much today, so if anything, I suppose aiming for Monday or later this week would be best.

Sorry about not checking in, I had a few things going on Friday and Saturday, and only just got to check things today...

EDIT: GGs, JD, that was a great battle! Be sure to come back on Tuesday for your rematch!

I'll be waiting for you in the Wi-Fi Lounge, whenever you're ready.

EDIT: GG, JD! This battle was a whole lot closer the last one, and you nearly pulled it out! That 3rd-to-last turn had me scared when you rotated away from my initial target. Nonetheless, it was an electrifying battle, and I look forward to your rematch (which can be as early as late Friday/early Saturday, it would be a bit late for Thursday, and I have some things to do on Friday).

Again, I've only had a small chance to check in here, and I have a prior obligation for the rest of the day, so the battle will have to wait for early-ish Saturday, at the soonest. Sorry for any inconvenience...

I'm ready to battle you right now if you want to.

EDIT: Well, after several (SEVERAL) failed attempts from random disconnects, seems 3 was your lucky number, JD! I made a clumsy move early in the battle that cost me a physical sweeper, and I didn't expect the momentum to shift that quickly on me. *hands over Mechanized Badge* I do believe you've earned this one

Before PMD I was working on a new competitive team, and I think I finally am ready to battle! I challenge ye, to win a badge I made.

I did make a few tweeks to the team when I look and found you were the next gym...

EDIT: Question, is there a limit to how many pokemon can have the same item?

I posted a question regarding the Item Clause in the Feedback & Response Board. If it isn't answered by Spirit/Aura by the time we battle, I'll just have to allow it, since it isn't listed in the rules anywhere for now.

GGs, Plaz, that was a great battle there, by far the best I've had in my (short) competitive career! We matched each other blow for blow for a bit, and you certainly dented my team, but a bit of luck pulled me through, I guess. You're free to challenge me this time again on Friday. ^^

Okay, I am ready again! I am dragging a pokemon from my old team to replace Milotic (who was completely useless last time...).

When can we battle?

I suppose as soon as we're both on and ready for battling. At the moment, I'm IV-checking for a member of my new team, but I could definitely battle you if you came on.

Given I can't connect to Whimsi whatsoever, I'm going to have to move on to this gym. My challenge to you still stands.

Given the circumstance, I'm tempted to allow you skipping a gym, but the rules are a bit specific there:
Quote:
The eight gyms are arranged in sequential order, starting with the weakest and ending with the strongest. A challenger must defeat the gym leaders in this sequential order.
I'll message Spirit and Aura about it, but they haven't been on in a while, so I guess after a week or so, if they don't respond, I'll just have to allow it.

Sorry for taking a bit to respond, but I was feeling sick for most of the week until now and I wanted to wait until I was at least feeling a tad better.

**Challenge Accepted**

I haven't been battling for a while, and I hope I'm not rusty. The earliest I can battle you is probably Sunday, since I'm doing things today and tomorrow, but I can battle you basically anytime during the day on Sunday ^^

EDIT: Congrats, Tarell! It was a bit of a close match, and it was my first time fighting a truly obscure team combo, but it worked out in your favor. I bestow upon you the Mechanized Badge!
