Thread: Apply For or Update a Gym

  1. #1

    Apply For or Update a Gym

    BMG | PWN | PXR

    Would you like to be a Gym Leader? Check the Gym Leaders thread to see which Gyms are open.

    Gym Leader Information

    Applying:
    • In order to be a Gym Leader, your application must be accepted by the appropriate League Organizer.
    • If there is more than one application for a Gym, the best will be chosen by the League Organizer.
    • Your application must include which gym you're applying for, your Discord/instant messenger name, a link to your stats, your anticipated lineup, and the TM of your Gym
    • The Gym TM must be the same type as the Gym, and it must not be used by another Gym.
    • Gym Leaders are able to be in possession of a Kanto/Johto/Hoenn/Sinnoh/Unova/Kalos Gym at the same time as an Orange League Gym.
    • If you believe the leader of a gym is inactive, you may apply for their gym and the League Organiser will consider the replacement


    The Lineup:
    • A Gym Leader's lineup can consist of up to 15 Pokemon.
    • A Gym Leader must own at least 4 of their Pokemon.
    • A Gym Leader can also rent an additional 4 Pokemon, included in the 15 Pokemon limit.
    • A Gym Leader is permitted one Wildcard in their lineup from the pre-approved list below, included in the 15 Pokemon limit.
    • Legendary Pokemon are not allowed in a gym lineup.
    • Gym Leaders may change their lineup and are responsible for updating their lineup and other info in this thread.


    Rentals:
    • Pokemon that are rented by Gym Leaders must be kept in their stats. They may be taught moves and their Dream World ability like any other Pokemon they own, but rental Pokemon may only be used in defence of the gym.
    • If a Gym Leader acquires an owned version of a rental Pokemon, he/she may transfer all taught moves and its Dream World ability to the owned version when changing the rental Pokemon in his/her lineup to the owned version.
    • If you remove a rental Pokemon any other way, including leaving the gym, any taught moves and its Dream World ability are lost.
    • The Hidden Power type on a rental Pokemon must remain the same, even if you remove it from your lineup and add it again later and teach it a new Hidden Power. Therefore, you must note what Hidden Power type any of your previous rentals had.
    • If a rental Pokemon that knows Hidden Power has its moves transferred to an owned version, the owned version must get its own Hidden Power type rolled.


    Wildcards:
    • A Wildcard is a Pokemon considered to be similar enough to the gyms type to be allowed in the lineup
    • The Wildcard Pokemon must be owned, and cannot be rented into a lineup
    • Silvally may not be used in any Gym other than Normal-type and may not hold and Memory items if used.
    • Wildcards can only be selected from the following list:
      Spoiler:
      Normal: Clefable, Granbull
      Grass: Sudowoodo, Florges, Comfey
      Fire: Salamence, Solrock
      Water: Dragalge, Stunfisk, Masquerain
      Electric: Klinklang, Probopass, Porygon-Z, Porygon2
      Ice: Empoleon, Slowbro
      Fighting: Electivire, Bisharp, Kangaskhan, Pinsir, Incineroar
      Poison: Gliscor, Breloom, Parasect, Accelgor
      Ground: Tyranitar, Cacturne
      Flying: Volcarona, Flygon, Venomoth, Beedrill, Dustox, Decidueye
      Psychic: Venomoth, Ninetales, Golduck, Darmanitan (Zen Mode only)
      Bug: Flygon, Kabutops, Drapion, Lurantis
      Rock: Camerupt, Torkoal, Steelix, Sandslash
      Dragon: Charizard, Gyarados
      Ghost: Ninetales, Rotom Forms
      Steel: Electrode, Golurk, Dhelmise
      Dark: Arbok, Gengar, Gothitelle
      Fairy: Blissey, Chansey, Phione
    • In addition to the list above, any Pokemon which gains the gym type through Mega Evolution can also be a Wildcard. However, this Pokemon can ONLY be used if it holds its Megastone. If the Pokemon is forced into battle (such as by Roar) and another Pokemon as already used Mega Evolution, it must still hold the Megastone and cannot Mega Evolve.
    • These Pokemon are:
      Spoiler:
      Fighting: Lopunny
      Flying: Pinsir
      Dragon: Ampharos, Sceptile
      Dark: Gyarados
      Fairy: Altaria, Audino


    General Information:
    • A Gym Leader must keep all information regarding his/her Gym in his/her stats. This includes his/her lineup, successful challengers of the gym, and the Gym's win and loss record. This information must be kept, even after a Gym Leader no longer owns the gym.
    • A Gym Leader is considered to have his/her own Gym Badge for Elite 4 challenging purposes, but only while he/she owns the gym.
    • All of a Gym Leader's Pokemon in his/her lineup that are able to learn the Gym TM through TM know it during a Gym Battle if they do not already, but only during a Gym Battle.
    • Gym Leaders are able to set the rules of their gym battles, as long as the rule is a legal rule (BMG | PWN | PXR). However, the battle must be 3v3 or higher. If the battle mode involves sending Pokemon and moves in the chat/thread instead of privately, the leader can decide who sends his/her Pokemon first. Some leaders have specific rules they must use.
    • There may be periodic roll calls for Gym Leaders. If a Gym Leader does not respond in time, he/she may lose his/her gym.
    • If a person feels as though a Gym Leader is doing a bad job as a Gym Leader, and that person feels as though he/she is able to defend that Gym better, he/she may ask the League Organizer of that Gym Leader to challenge that Gym Leader for his/her position. The League Organizer has the right to not allow this sort of challenge if he/she feels the Gym Leader is doing fine or if the challenger is not good enough. If this sort of challenge is allowed, the League Organizer decides the specifics of the challenge, which should involve both players using only that Gym's Pokemon.

    Unfortunately, I'm going to deny you the gym for a few reasons, but I think you could work towards it as a goal in the future.

    Spoiler:

    1. With all due respect, I believe you still lack the necessary experience as a battler to defend a gym. It shows even in some areas of your application, but I'm not here to be derogatory, so I will point them out to you privately.

    2. Half of your gym line-up is rented. I'd like to see more time invested into building up a good amount of owned Pokemon.

    3. Your line-up in general is small. There's nothing wrong with only having the bare minimum, but as previously stated it takes experience to defend under that condition.

    4. Your Pokemon do not have much invested in them in the way of EMs which leaves them open to many counters which are prevalent in Fighting gyms as it is.


    I know it's rare for applications to be turned down, but I really think you could use a lot more battling experience before you're ready for the responsibility of a gym.
