    Default Bulbagarden Battle League: Season 0.5 [DONE]

    Many thanks to all those who participated during Season 0, we're giving an extension to those who joined us later in the season as well as a chance to challenge our other gym leaders!
    ---------------
    Welcome to the unofficial Bulbagarden Battle League! This is a project that some members have been working on to set up a battle league here in the forums. This will give you a chance to play against actual gym leaders on a quest to get badges and make your way to the Elite 4! The BBL is here to give you a platform to test out the teams you've been working on and to hone your battling skills.

    When signing up please provide your 3DS FC and trainer name. Feel free to ask any questions and good luck with your battles!

    This season of the BBL will close on Sunday February 2, 2014.

    Format: Single Battle, Normal Rules
    Clauses:
    - Pokemon above OU are banned (The latest XY tiers can be found here: XY Tiers - Smogon University)
    - Species Clause
    - Sleep Clause
    - Item Clause
    - Evasion Clause
    - Moody banned
    - OHKO Clause
    - Drizzle + Swift Swim allowed
    - Gengarite banned
    - Kangaskhanite banned

    League:
    - A challenger will go through the league using a team of 6 Pokemon. This team may not be changed throughout the duration of the challenge.
    - Challengers may fight against the gym leaders in any order.
    - Gym leaders may change their lineup without prior notice.
    - If a challenger loses, they may not request a rematch with that gym leader until 24 hours have passed.

    Battles:
    - Any battle between a challenger and gym leader is recognized as an official gym battle.
    - Send notifications to gym leaders before challenging them to a battle. No random battle requests.
    - Any disruption of a battle will award the victory to the gym leader. Any persistent issues with disconnection may be brought up with the BBL.
    - A disconnected match will count as a battle and rematches will follow the same mechanic as above.
    - Be courteous and respectful to your opponent.

    *Team lineups of challengers will not be shared between gym leaders. Any issues may be brought up with the BBL.

    Assuming normal BBL rules are applied by Sharkshocker during this transition yes. As a general rule if you've beaten a gym leader then you need to keep the team that you used.

    We won't be accepting new gym leaders until the end of the season. This will give us time to look over all applicants and evaluate them before making a decision.

    I'll repost this part I mentioned on the end of season 0, to clarify for others who have applied or are planning on applying.
    If you have previously applied for these types please continue to participate in the league so that we can see how well you fare. If you have applied for a type that has already been taken feel free to apply for any of the open positions. We will make our decision regarding any applicants when we close Season 0.5. Thank you.

    That depends on how well you improve your attitude. As -Glory Blaze- said, this is also a program designed for people who are new to the competitive scene and want to make a good team. Being nice is one of the criteria for being a good gym leader.

    Edit: Please don't interpret this post as flaming. I'm just trying to give advice.

    Thank you for the notice, please post what time zone you are in so people can coordinate with you. I also suggest sending VMs to gym leaders so that you can notify them directly.

    Let me clarify a bit, for JustTheFx's sake. He's a friend from outside of the forums and his behavior may be a bit playful and jokey but I can assure you that there is no malice behind it. It might come off the wrong way sometimes but I'm sure he means well.

    I do thank the other gym leaders for expressing their concern and giving their advice, and I shall talk to JustTheFx about it. My apologies if this got a bit out of hand.

    It should have been private, but if we don't tell him why he's being denied he won't be able to fix it. So yeah, we aren't trying to bash you, JTFX, just letting you know how you can improve to get the position. Sorry if anything came off as offensive. :)

    Sorry I've been inactive as of late. I started breeding Pokemon for my team, and I just got really burnt out on Pokemon for a while. Hatching dozens of eggs in a row will do that to a man...

    But! I'm feeling up to it again! I think I've got my team ready, all that needs to be done now is some EV training and setting up moves. Then maybe I can get back to battling, you know, the actual fun part of Pokemon. xD

    Glad to have you back!

    Haha it's actually the opposite for me. While I do enjoy both breeding and battling I like breeding more and then to take a break I battle once in a while. :)

    Also, is the sign-up for Gym Leaders a different process or is it just what I wrote above+challenging the league members? I'm just a little confused on the details...
