Rules (all apply to both leaders and challengers):
  • Always follow /rules
  • No revives & 3 potions max
  • 3 healing items max [only 1 of which may be a full restore]
  • 3 Pokemon max
    • No duplicate Pokemon [Pokemon with the same Pokedex ID]
    • No renamed Pokemon
    • No Mega Rayquaza
    • 1 mega & 1 legendary allowed [mega legends & primals count for both slots]
    • 1 Ultra Beast allowed
  • A challenger may use a legendary/mythical if and only if the leader is using one
  • Pokemon must be level locked at all times
  • No Dragon Rage or Sonic Boom
  • No OHKO moves [Fissure, Guillotine, Horn Drill, and Sheer Cold]
  • Gym Leaders may only use Pokemon whose original form aligns with their gym type
  • Challengers must ALWAYS start the battle with the Pokemon thrown out first
  • Battle rules must be used of a Challenger's Pokemon is underleveled, and may also be used if they are two levels over
  • If a Challenger’s Pokemon levels up during a gym battle you may decide if it qualifies as a win or not, but you must be consistent with this choice
  • If your opponent disconnects unexpectedly during battle, wait a few minutes and do not heal or alter your Pokemon. If they rejoin, resume the battle from where you were
  • The Normal and Ice gyms are double battle based and 4v4, this requires battle rules to be used
  • Challengers MAY NOT "borrow" another person's team for the sole purpose of defeating a gym. You must train your own Pokemon with your own movesets and strategies. If you’ve purchased a pokemon in a trade you may still challenge a gym as long as it follows the previous rules. Gym Leaders may still disqualify you if they feel you’re using a Pokemon/team that’s not yours. For example if you’re using the same team & strategy that a Gym Leader lost to the previous day, they may see fit to disqualify you
Gym Leader Guidelines:
  • Always be nice and welcoming to Challengers of your gym
  • It’s highly recommended that your team is fully IV and EV trained
  • You’re only allowed to reject a Challenger with good reason, ask a staff member if you're unsure. If you apply for a Gym Leader position, you’re responsible for accepting battles. You may not frequently AFK as it detracts from everyone's experience
  • Upon two weeks of inactivity your Gym Leader status will be revoked. If staff are notified beforehand an extra two weeks of grace period may be granted
  • If you want to discuss a Gym Leader's application, please be constructive and only comment on their Pokemon team. Let character and behavior be determined by staff
Gym Leader Commands:
  • /leader accept - accepts the most recent battle request
  • /leader deny - denies the most recent battle request
  • /leader give - gives your most recent opponent their badge
