Default Gym League's Announcement Thread

Gym League's Announcement Thread




The purpose of this thread is to serve as an announcement board, where The Gym League Administration is capable of announcing anything new to the public. This thread, however, will not be open for the public to comment on what has been announced; instead, the Gym League's Feedback & Response Board will serve such purpose.

Announcement #1
The Gym League Administration decided that gym leaders will follow a hierarchy, starting with the weakest and increasing sequentially till the eighth, who would be the strongest of the gym leaders. This means that a challenger has to start by battling Gym #1 and only when he defeats him, he would proceed to the second, and so on.

This rule was seen in many suggestions and it ties this League with the original games even further, making it a final decision.

Announcement #2
The second announcement is the list of the 8 gym leaders, ranked in order from Gym #1 till Gym #8.
  • Gym #1: boberry2009 (Normal-type)
  • Gym #2: Super Pichu62 (Electric-type)
  • Gym #3: ~Whimsicott~ (Flying-type)
  • Gym #4: Idno58 (Ice-type)
  • Gym #5: Magmaster12 (Fire-type)
  • Gym #6: ThePokeMan (Steel-type)
  • Gym #7: Quadcentruo (Dark-type)
  • Gym #8: TurtwigX (Grass-type)
The ranks were decided when each of these applicants battled AuraKshatriya and The Spirit of Time, and a record of the outcome of each battle was kept. A net value of each individual's score was calculated; the higher the score, the higher is the rank.

Please keep in mind that those who have been chosen need to show constant activity in the forums, as well as proper behaviour, otherwise their status could get revoked.

With the list already published, here are the main procedures we followed in choosing the eight gym leaders, which would explain why other applicants were not chosen:
  • The first thing that was looked upon was each applicant's activity. Some applicants applied and never bothered to log in again, while others were the kind who would log in once every few weeks. Such applicants were eliminated from the list.
  • We then looked at each applicant's maturity and capability of moderating his own gym. Most applicants showed positive attitude, but few lacked such ability and had to be eliminated from the list.
  • A good number of teams shared the same type. Such teams were compared and only the stronger one was chosen.
  • The fourth and final reason may be of interest to those who weren't chosen:

Announcement #3
Seven out of our eight gym leaders have already updated their signatures to include the Gym League's official banner. The eighth is in the progress of doing so. This action serves to identify these eight as part of the Gym League team. Now, you can easily spot them.

Announcement #6
Initially, we planned to open the League in the first week of November. However, AuraKshatriya and I realised how busy we will be by then, thus, we agreed to open the League earlier.

After looking at calender, it turned out that I will have a short, national holiday, starting from 24/10/2012 till 27/10/2012. Therefore, expect the League to open within these number of days.

Announcement #9
Gym Leader #5, Magmaster12, has dropped out of the League due to his incapability of training his team to the required level margin. Thus, members are allowed to apply for his position instead. Anyone who is interested may apply in this thread.

I hereby welcome the new 2014 VRGL gym leaders! I was particularly stuck between two applications for the same type; they were both well-made. One big thing I took under consideration among the apps was activity. I'll be sending the gym leaders more details around the time when Pokebank gets released worldwide. Again, the Gym League will not begin until 3 weeks after the bank gets released. (Good going Game Freak for trying to release the thing on Christmas)
  • Gym #1: Rotomguy (Ghost-type)
  • Gym #2: Tarellethiel (Fairy-type)
  • Gym #3: TurtwigX (Grass-type)
  • Gym #4: ThePokeMan (Steel-type)
  • Gym #5: JDxImpetus (Fighting-type)
  • Gym #6: Kakashidragon (Dark-type)
  • Gym #7: Magmaster12 (Fire-type)
  • Gym #8: Alakazamaster (Psychic-type)


Note: The Gym League isn't starting yet, so gym leaders, please don't make your threads yet.

Just a reminder: The league starts in a week from now, so gym leaders, please have your teams ready...PLEASE. If anyone has any issues with making their team, send me a PM.

Something else I should mention; the Fairy gym leader has been inactive for over a month, so it's likely that a new leader will be chosen. If Tarellethiel doesn't come on within the next 7 days, I'll reopen the application thread and a new leader will be chosen.

As of today, the X and Y Gym League is now open! Some gym leaders have valid reasons for not opening their gym today, so expect most of them to be open by this weekend. Besides that, have fun guys! Be sure to PM me if you have any questions.

ThePokeMan has resigned his gym leader position, so the application thread is back up and a new leader will be chosen.

I'm kinda late with announcing this, but Kaz has decided to withdraw from the league. Because of this, I'll be opening the application thread again for about a week.
