Default VRGL General Rules [X and Y]

Pokémon X and Y Gym League Official Rules

Welcome to Victory Road Gym League. This thread is a guide to all the mechanics the League follows and that every participant should be familiar with.

1. The Gym League Administrator
The Gym League Administrator is the one that is responsible for the League. It is his/her job to plan, coordinate and control all the different aspects of the League. The Gym League Administrator is the first a participant should contact in any case concerning the League.

The Gym League is administered by:
2. General Rules & Mechanics
  • The Gym League consists of 8 gym leaders, each representing one type.
  • The battles will be conducted on 3DS wifi only.
  • The following games are the ones that can be used in the League:
    -Pokémon X
    -Pokémon Y

3. Battle Rules
  • All Pokémon to be used in battles should be level 50 or above. Anything above that level will be reduced down to level 50.
  • All battles are conducted as 6 vs 6 single battles with no restrictions.
  • 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. (VR Ban list pending)
    -New X and Y additions to Ubers are: Mega Blaziken, Mega Gengar [Gengarite itself is banned], Mega Kangaskhan, Xerneas, Yveltal, and Zygarde.
  • 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.

4. Instructions to Gym Leaders & Challengers
  • Each gym leader has the right to close his/her gym. Reasons why should be included such as final exams, vacation, etc.
  • If a gym leader is not ready after the first week the gym league opens up, their position will be revoked and will be replaced.
    -Seriously, I can't tolerate laziness. This is the reason why nobody finished the last league.
  • If a gym leader remains inactive for over a month for no reason, then his/her gym leader status will be revoked, the gym will be removed and a new gym leader shall be appointed.
  • Each gym represents one of the seventeen types in the Pokémon games. There are eight gyms, thus eight different types in total.
  • Each gym leader will use a team of at least three Pokémon of the same type he or she represents.
  • When a challenger wins against a gym leader, he or she gains this gym leader's badge and an optional additional prize.
  • When a challenger wins against a gym leader, he or she has the right to ask for a prize from the gym leader. Due to breeding being greatly simplified, prizes for defeating a gym leader will be a fitting actual Pokémon or Egg of that Pokémon.
  • If a challenger loses, he/she has the right to challenge the same gym leader again after 48 hours of their previous battle.
  • 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 as long as they still fit the Gym league's guidelines.
  • Challengers have the right to switch their Pokémon as they progress through the League.
  • In any case of suspected cheating or breaking the rules, the Gym Leader or challenger must save the battle video and send it to the current administrator.
  • Gym Leaders may also participate in the Victory Road Gym League as an ordinary challenger would.

Breaking any of these rules results in the loss of the violator and further consequences depending on the severity.

Be sure to check this guide regularly. Rules may be subject to updates and changes in the future.

If you are interested in applying for a Gym Leader position, please post in the Gym Leader Application Form thread when it's open.

Any question, complaint or suggestion can be posted in the Gym League's Feedback & Response Board.

Special announcements that concern the League will be posted in the Gym League's Announcement Thread.

-The Gym League Administrator

I saw a few people talking about a certain rule in the league. I am actually going to remove it.

Battlers are not allowed to change the order of their teams, as previewed in the Team Preview feature of the WiFi Club.

I find this rule to be pointless and trivial. That is all.
