I was just thinking the other day whilst i was playing pokemon white.
What if we had type trainers like they have in the gyms. let me explain more. In every gym there are trainers with 1 or 2 pokemon of the same type as the gym. I suggest that the LO or Gym leader, with LO permison should get to choose a person in the URPG to be a gym trainer.
Each gym trainer would be allowed to sue 1 pokemon of the gyms type thaat they own. An example of this would be,
Me, I could be chosen by Fawkes to be his gym trainer, I would have to battle every person that wants to challenge his gym before they can fight him. It would be a simple 1 v 1 or 2 v 2 battle.
The Advantages of this would be, It helps people to test their strategy they want to use on the gym leader on a trainer using the same type as that gym leader. It also helps the gym trainer as they then can get practice using the individual type, and give them a bit of experience incase they eventually want to be a gym leader.
The battle would obviously have to pay, as it is a battle. I was suggesting that it would pay 250 for a loss and 500 for a win if it was a 1 v 1 and can only be battled the once unless you lose. This way it wouldn't be exploited. If it was a 2 v 2 then I would just suggest the whole 500 for a loss and 1000 for a win.
Well thats my idea, I hope that you like it or atleast consider it before blowing the idea out of the window.
