Well would you look at that, it's the
Pokestadium Summer League!
What is the PS Summer League, one might ask? It's a battling competition that will be ongoing for the duration of the rather warm times (Summer.) The gist of this competition is that there will be eight (8!) Gym Leaders for challengers to defeat and obtain badges from. Upon beating them, they will become champion, unless there should already be a presiding champion- then of course they're going to have to fight, but more on that later.
SOME GROUND RULES:
Here's the list of the eight members that are currently serving as gym leaders. If you'd like to challenge one of them, send a PM here or on the discord to any of the ones you're currently prepared to battle with your team. It's a good idea to hang out at this server frequently if you want to have the best shot at getting your battles in. Be sure to save a replay of your battle as backup validation of your victory.
CHALLENGING THE LEAGUE:
To challenge the league, you of course must build a team of six Pokemon. You should try to pick your Pokemon carefully, as you must use the same Pokemon for all battles against Gym Leaders. You can change them if you'd really like, but be warned- you will lose any badges you have currently obtained should you change any of your Pokemon, and you'll have to re-obtain those badges with the new team.
The Gym Leaders can be challenged in any order, and as in the games they'll all use one type exclusively. Because of this, it would be a good idea to bring teams with a lot more variety that will prove more versatile for these battles. Also be aware that if you lose a battle against a Gym Leader, they aren't absolutely compelled to fight you again until three days have passed. Of course, they could rematch you right away, but whether or not they'll do that is a decision for the individual gym leader.
To challenge the league, simply fill out the following form and post it here or send it in a PM:
Once you've defeated all eight Gym Leaders and collected every badge, you will become champion of the Summer League! That is, unless there's already a champion. In which case you'll have to fight them. Should a challenger lose against the champion, they must wait at least one week before there is to be a rematch. The Champion and challengers of course will still only being using the team they collected their eight badges with. There are also some perks to being champion:
On a total side note, if anybody is interested in making a banner or badges so they don't have to be made by me and thus look bad, that'd be stellar. Have fun challenging the Summer League!
(Credit to the fine folks of the PUCL community for inspiring this game.)
Here's how this game works: one person starts by thinking of a Pokemon, and noting a fact about it (ideally one shared with many Pokemon, such as it learning a move like Helping Hand.) Then other participants can take a guess of what Pokemon it might be- and after at least one person has guessed, the person who knows the Pokemon will confirm if the guess[es] are right or wrong, and then give another fact about the Pokemon. The facts should get increasingly specific as this process continues- starting off with moves, egg groups, and place in an evolutionary line, but eventually moving onto abilities and typings and whatnot. Ideally, your guesses should be based on your innate Pokemon knowledge, so use of external information sources is discouraged but of course can't be prevented.
When somebody does guess the Pokemon correctly, they get to think of a new Pokemon and new questions. There is a limit of 10 facts. If nobody gets it in 10, then whoever guessed most recently can do the next mon/facts. Because of this, the 10th question should be made to make the answer quite obvious, but not outright reveal it. (For example, if the answer was Plusle, you could say "It's not Minun.") Also, if the person presenting the facts fails to answer guesses within 24 hours, then this responsibility falls upon whoever guesses most recently/whoever feels like picking it up.
First hint rule:
Because this needs to be even more complex it'll be fun, I'll also keep track of who's been guessing correctly. If your guess was on the first fact, you'll get 10 points, and if it was on the last, you'll get 1.
I suppose I'll kick us off here:
#1: This Pokemon learns the move Peck.
