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:
 

Spoiler

 

-These battles will use Stadium Mons rules as a base.

 

-No more than one legendary/mythical pokemon per team.

 

-When challenging, you can change your sets as you please. However, you must use the same Pokemon for all your gym battles.

 

 

 

 

GYM LEADERS:

 

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:

Showdown username:

Time zone: (optional but ideal)

Trainer sprite: (can be custom)

Signature Pokemon: (should be one you're using on your current challenging team)

BECOMING CHAMPION:

 

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:

 

Spoiler

 

-Possession of the exclusive "Champion" role if currently champion

 

-Upon becoming a Champion, you'll get to add your own emoticon to Pokestadium to be enjoyed by others for the ages

(must be a Pokemon, of course)

 

-I, personally, will refer to you as "Champ." What more could you ever want?

 

 

 

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!

-All legendaries/mythicals are banned

GYM LEADER APPLICATIONS:

 

The Gym Leader application process will probably end up taking a while, which is why I'm making this thing with "Summer" in its name during what is undoubtedly the middle of Spring. There will be somewhat of a first-come, first-served basis here, though priority may be given to those with a deeper background in battling/good track record of being active. Keep in mind that being a gym leader will entail quite a bit of briefing and being prompt to requests. If you'd like to apply, fill out the following form and post it here: (example answers given in first)

CHALLENGING THE LEAGUE:

 

  Hide contents

Since we'll of course need to establish some Gym Leaders to have a league, there's not too much of a need to detail procedure and applications and whatnot for challenging, as we likely won't actually be up and running for at least a couple weeks.

 

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. Well, that's all the info really needed here at the moment- hope you all have fun partaking in the Summer League fairly soon!

 

 

 

I have a question, how exactly are the battles and stuff happen?

@Taiiyo, yes, yes it will.

 

Also @Kaps to clarify, I meant if you challenged and beat it, though it would be nifty if you could be a gym leader if you'd like (though, Cosmog can't be used as a signature Pokemon unfortunately since it counts as a legendary and probably wouldn't do anything in battle anyway.)

 

But myself, Crawdad, Ohjay, and Taaiyo are good to go as gym leaders so that leaves 4 free slots remaining!

Alright, just keep in mind you'll be bringing Weedle to all of your battles as long as it's your signature Pokemon. Bugsy has a Kakuna and Metapod though so hey guess this isn't much of a stretch

Well, I'll do the badges,  because I'm Pokestadium's resident Badge designer.

Legend has applied through PM as a Normal-type gym leader, and thusly our league is complete! Will soon finish up the list of the gym leaders with all their info (and the badges being added when they're completed.)


@Kaotic and @Kaps, since you two seem to be a bit newer to competitive battling, be sure to test out potential types of teams you might consider using against challengers with your fellow gym leaders here, and that you check any potential buffs mons you're considering have received here.

@Kaps, it's a list of rules/new things Pokemon are given in this format- for example, Machamp doesn't usually learn Mach Punch, but when you're playing using Stadium Mons rules you can. Just do CTRL+F to find whatever Pokemon you're curious about that might be on the list.

 

(Also, changing the "no legends" rule to maximum one legend/mythical per team, so if you want to change back to Psychic with Cosmog that's fine, though I would recommend making a fully evolved Pokemon your signature mon since you have to bring it to every battle.)

Is a challenge a battle?

Does that mean we have to save the replays as proof?

Guys please refrain from spamming the board with your sentence long nonsensicals! Also, @Kaps you were put in a group pm specifically to ask questions and make any inquiries about the league! Please use it if you have any questions like this ;)

 

@Lpola seems you may have not realized you were on this board haha. No issue, but if you'd like to know what your getting yourself into, please go to the top of the topic and read the rules and such! Thanks for showing interest in the league!

      A number will be randomly generated each day, and the Pokemon with that number in the national dex will be the one you give your opinion on that day! The averages will be later stored for all to see! I hope you enjoy rating/reading other people's ratings about your favorite (or least favorite) Pokemon.
       

      Simply rate the Pokemon on a scale of 1-10 and give us the reason for your rating!
       
      And today's Pokemon is... 
       
      #254 Sceptile!
       

       
      My rating: 7.5
       
      Sceptile's a member of what I think is all-around the best batch of starters, so that explains a large part of my favorable view on it. It's got a pretty solid design itself, and evolves from what is almost unarguably the best middle-stage starter. It's also really quite fast which is cool, the only starter that out speeds it being Greninja. Of all the Hoenn starters, I think it got the best signature move (Leaf Blade, as opposed to Blaze Kick or Muddy Water) though I guess that could be debated. It's got the stats so that it can run a mixed set as well, which I always like. All around a Pokemon I'm rather fond of but just don't have a lot of personal experience with.
       
      #254 Mega Sceptile!
       

       
      My rating: 9
       
      Mega Sceptile is definitely on the list of better megas in my opinion. The pose looks interesting (especially for a 3D sprite,) there's some nice subtle design changes, and of course the tail. High quality tail. Just ask @Master Snivy. It gets a sky-high 145 speed stat, only beaten by a handful of other Pokemon (most legends or megas.) Giving it an immunity to a type it would have a 4x resistance to in LightningRod might feel a bit lame at first, but considering you get a much appreciated x1.5 Special Attack boost and the ability to stop things from getting momentum with Volt Switch (or hitting an ally with Electric moves in double battles) it's actually quite a nice get. No Draco Meteor is a bit of a shame but still great overall.

      (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:
       
       
      Form rules:
       
       
      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. 
       
      Leaderboards:
       
      I suppose I'll kick us off here:
       
      #1: This Pokemon learns the move Peck.
