Proposing a New Gym

Post by Admin on Tue Aug 09, 2011 3:24 am

For those of you wanting to start up a new gym and become a Gym Leader post in this thread!

If we have reached our maximum desired amount of gyms, this thread will be locked.

Here are some steps to go through:
1) Introduce yourself!  We want to get to know all our Leaders so we can be friendly and stuff.
2) Propose a theme or type.  Refer to "How the League Works" for guidelines and tips for choosing a viable theme.
3) Propose 6-8 Pokemon that will comprise your central team and represent your type or theme.

If we approve your proposed Gym, we will then ask that you schedule a match with a sitting Gym Leader, who will judge your battling ability.  You can choose whether or not to use your themed team or not; whatever you think will best display your ability to battle as a Gym Leader.

Right now, you can post your gym, but it may be a while until you can face a Leader to be tested.

If you pass that little test, we'll give you your own sub-forum, where you are free to set up your Gym and begin accepting challenges!

The following types and themes are currently taken:

Types
Psychic
Grass
Ghost
Fire
Bug
Dragon
Fairy
Ground
Dark
Poison
Water
Ice
Fighting
Flying

Themes
Heavy Pokemon
Eeveelutions
Fossil Pokemon
Safari-themed Pokemon
Seven Deadly Sins

Theme: Team Rocket - Pokemon used by members of Team Rocket in Gen I and II
Pokemon: Houndoom, Honchkrow, Crobat, Gengar, Arbok, and Raticate

Team is approved!

Not only is your team accepted, but all Gyarados used by League members are mandated to now be called Mr. Fish. At least mine is going to be. Screw the rules, I have Gyarados.

Argh! I knew I should have posted sooner! I wanted to do a dragon gym too! ;-;

Ahh well... hmm... kind of obscure, but how about an Archosaur gym? :3 That would include croc-like pokemon, dinosaur-like pokemon, and bird pokemon...

So something like Archeops, Feraligatr, Tyranitar, Rampardos, Sceptile, Altaria/Togekiss? I dunno, it's not set in stone, and some pokemon (Sceptile, Togekiss) can be argued either way... =/

Little too much variety there. You should limit down your theme a little more.

Steel and Dragon teams are good!

No.

Also, we're going to go ahead and start testing. Our Leader's schedules are tight right now, though, so be prepared to wait.

Richard, your tester will be Larryk.
Justin, your tester will be Trogdor.

Get in contact with those guys, you can post in their Gyms or PM them, or do whatever you want. Schedule a match with them, and afterwards, I'll let you know if you passed the test!

Fefnir and Cassy, we'll test you after these first two are done.

Though I'm sure your team is fine, out of fairness we'll still probably have you test against someone before we add your gym. Stay tuned!

Since Richard was here first, he gets first dibs on the Bug Gym. Unless, of course, Richard feels comfortable accepting the challenge and risking a loss. Otherwise, if he passes his test he gets the Gym. You'll be free to join it, of course.

Justin's forfeiting his gym for now, and we're going to have a new person in to take his place soon. Of course, that means the next person can wait in line to be tested, and Fefnir's up next.

Fefnir, your tester will be Trogdor.

New Dragon Gym!

Post by clovergoldngreen on Thu Oct 13, 2011 6:02 am

My name is Cameron Moody. Justin has handed the reins over to me for the dragon gym saying that he doesn't have the time to run one. Anyway, the pokemon I will be using are as follows:
Jett: Garchomp, female
Judith: Salamence, female
Trinity: Hydreigon, male
Cumula: Altaria, female
Jasmine: Flygon, female
Henry: Dragonite, male

I also am in the process of drawing up a badge for my gym. The current draft can be viewed on the league's Facebook page.

My team's ready to be challenged. I just need to get my bus pass so I can head to Black Hawk over here on the Illinois Side. It's the only place I know how to get to where there's decent open-wifi.

Proposing a New Gym

Post by soubigo on Sun Oct 16, 2011 2:35 am

hi. my name is Anthony Lovell and i would like to propose a serpentine style gym. my party will for the most part include:
Moriko- Serperior - Female
Orochi- Seviper - Male
Natsuko- Arbok - Female
Hikaru- Milotic - Male
Hitomi- Dragonair - Female
Tatsuya- Gyarados - male
IF accepted as a gym leader i will have to wait to be tested till i can hang out with Cameron moody ( the curent dragon gym leader if i have been properly informed ^u^ )) because i myself dont know of any real good open whi fi places that i can get to when not with him.
ive been toying around with a name for the gym and ide like it to be called the Ophiachan Gym ( in representation of the Zodiac Ophiachus witch so hapens to be my sign )
and ive also been toying around with a badge but i dont want to devote to mutch time into a badge if i dont get exsepted so ill just wait to go any further till i here back from some one.

sincerly Anthony. thanks for your time ^u^
