    Default Time Clause.

    Restrict turns to 6-7 minutes maximum during an AIM battle (DPP or Revo) or else that turn is a failed turn.

    Unless user disconnects from chatroom.

    Have it as an OPTIONAL CLAUSE (Default=off).

    Y/N?

    If it takes you more than 8 minutes to move for a turn then you are taking to too seriously (inb4 Poogeymonz is srz buiznezz)

    good, you guys know how to pinpoint the error

    Default Re: Time Clause.

    I wonder who this could be aimed at... As a ref I tend to give a notice after 5 minutes roughly asking for a move. I think as a clause it might be an ok rule. But if its their gym, they decide clauses so gl using it against a certain rustyperson.

    That's stupid. Just make sure they're still there every now and then. All battles end eventually if it's important enough.

    No Want

    Yeah this seems too serious, sometimes things come up in life that will require you to leave the battle, you wouldn't want to come back to the battle only to find that you've lost.

    If the person goes offline mid-battle and doesn't come online after 10-20 mins then thats a forfeit but you must always consider things may come up on the other side of the internet

    I also want to point out that by bringing this point up surely youare taking it just as seriously given that you got that annoyed about it you came to make a case to stop it. If you weren't surely you would have just let it slide. Just sayin'

    This seems too serious yet FFAs commonly use this.

    You'd be pretty angry if someone took 10 minutes per move in a 3v3 basics

    Default Re: Time Clause.

    As much as my initial reaction to this is to be all "OHGODYESIHATETHATSOMUCH", I can't really see a practical use for the clause unless you use it when defending your own gym. Against someone elses, as Buzzer said, you cant enforce the clause anyway.

    That ruling is implemented in the FFA by the referee, it's essentially optional just as most of the others they use. When I ref one, I don't want to wait 20 minutes between turns... so I don't. The battlers have to deal with that.

    I'd say I'm down with this. It gets frustrating having to wait on slower opponents. If it's an optional clause, I see no problem with adding it.

    Since when? o.o To me, it's always been a 'Wanna save stats?'.

    I don't like this, just do something else while you're waiting for the move to be called.

    Default Re: Time Clause.

    As Pidge already pretty much stated, it is already possible to have the time clause up...

    You don't need to argue about something that can already be done.
    (Unless you want Time Clauses to be mandatory?)

    -Terrain: Allows the use of Terrain (except G/S/C and Stadium) during battles. Can be chosen by Trainers or randomly chosen by the Referee. {Default is Normal Terrain.}
    -Sleep Clause: Only 1 Pokemon per side may be put to sleep by the opponent. Self induced sleep such as Rest does not count towards Sleep Clause. {Default is Sleep Clause On.}
    -Freeze Clause: Only 1 Pokemon per side may be frozen. {Default is Freeze Clause Off.}
    -Gameboy: Battle using only 4 moves, like the Gameboy. You must send the moves to the Referee in advance. {Default is Gameboy Off.}
    -Holding Items: These are a part of every battle. Both Trainer must agree before the battle to not use them, otherwise they are fair game. {Default is Holding Items not used.}
    -OHKO Clause: OHKO moves like Fissure and Sheer Cold will always fail.{Default is OHKO Clause Off.}
    -Evasion Clause: Moves that increase evasion like Double Team and Minimize will always fail. Abilities that increase evasion like Sand Veil and the move Acupressure will still work normally. Accuracy lowering moves like Sand Attack will still work normally. {Default is Evasion Clause Off.}
    Nowhere is Time Clause mentioned, so it is an illegal clause at the moment, and rightly so, imo.
