    The PokeMMO Gym Challenge - Looking for challengers!

    Alright, updated OP. Let me know if I overlooked something. By the way, if Cali keeps going with her utter dominance she will be rewarded with the best win-rate bonus (1 mil) + 500k for beating all the gyms + she will be rewarded 1 mil extra on top of that if she goes undefeated. Because I wanted others to still have a shot at the best win-rate bonus money, they do not have to beat Cali's score because at this point it's just utterly ridiculous.

    You could have at least pretended it's gonna be a challenge.

    Sure, allowing first 16 challengers for now so you're in. (Probably more eventually) Updating OP tomorrow with everything that has happened in last 2 days.

    Limit to 1 the wall pokes in PVP (Unranked and ranked, OU)

    There has never been time in the history of PokeMMO that fully defensive playstyle is this unviable. It still isn't completely unviable but the fact we have numerous Pokemon that can break through virtually every wall in the game is why I can't believe we're still getting threads like these today. Even if this wasn't the case this would never happen: First you would need to define what is a "wall" and I guarantee people would never agree on the definitions. But even besides that, wallerinos aren't a problem in any way in this game. Quite rather, without Pokemon you call "walls" we wouldn't have any possible switch-ins for anything. Games would last an average of 12 turns where two players just change KOs one after another. That wouldn't be fun either.

    You haven't started your challenge yet? If so, that's fine I'll do that.

    Esranius is the first trainer to defeat the Ice-type gym!

    Just a few more challengers and we can get this officially going! Although, once you have submitted your team as a challenger, you may already begin to challenge the gym leaders.

    There's no Ubers for this event. Wobbu and Duf are mainly banned because we still lack team preview. In this event you kind of have team preview so it's easier to expect and play against.

    Thank you for your submission. The 2 weeks is there so that the schedule of gym leaders doesn't get overwhelmingly busy. I don't mind a gym leader giving 10 rematches right away if he has time as long as the score of each battle will be recorded but two week sounds reasonable and during that time other leaders may be challenged. I see no reason to limit for only 1 gym leader challenged per day. If gym leaders happen to be online and able to battle you, I really see no reason why they couldn't battle. From the bottom of it, this is supposed to be a fun event. Also I thought of having more Pokemon but even with 10 I felt like the advantage is generally still on the challenger because with 10 Pokemon you can counter a monotype pretty well while leaving your weakest Pokemon away from the matchup. I don't even mind like 65% win rate for challengers - just that I don't want absolute roflstomps and the battles should at least be somewhat entertaining. This is the first time I've ever ran this idea so this all is simply my estimation, if there's some crippling flaws I may adjust it for next challengers and leaders.

    Challengers may use any combination of their 10 Pokemon, challenger does not need to be monotype. The limitation of 10 is simply there to not bring a full Rain team vs Fire-gym, full Sun-team vs Steel and so on. Those matches aren't really any competitive at all. Having this limitation a challenger will most likely not have a fully optimal counter-team in terms of type effectiveness.

    Forgot to respond to this. Sounds like a good idea to me, more incentive for gym leaders to give their best (although we know some gym leaders just have it way more rough than others). I was running out of funds for this but luckily mah boi Forfi got me. So yeah, best rated gym leader also gets a prize. Holy shit Forfi just donated me 3 mil for this, what a god.

    Awesome, I'll keep that in mind. I'll always prefer a gym leader announces if they leave the game but if I hear a word a gym leader isn't active enough, I'll be sure to contact you.

    Roxxass PM'd me for wanting to become the Ghost gym leader but wanted to do in Doubles and I didn't wanna say no to such a request. This means we have all the gym leaders so challengers please sign up and let's get this going! If you have any questions by the way, do not hesitate to ask.

    I thought about @pachima's suggestion and I'm inclined to agree with it. There's no fun playing 6 Dark-types as a Ghost-type gym leader. So that being said each challenger will have to submit a team of 10 Pokemon they will use to battle all the gyms. This forces diversity and gives a challenger slight advantage, but still doesn't make the battles too lobsided. Once we have Ghost-type gym leader we move to challenger signups!
