MY LEAUGE’S NEW RULESET, SEND AN ASK IF YOU’RE INTERESTED
The Lonely League Regulations
Basic Lonely League Guidelines
- There will, at all times, be Four Elite 4 members, and 8 Gym Leaders.
- At no time may there be more than one Gym Leader with the same type in the league.
- All Gym Leaders must use one pure type (Flying would be Flying/Normal) at all times in official battles. Furthermore, if your pure type Pokémon changes types by either adding a type or changing it completely by an action you control (mega evolution, protean, etc.), and you do not have another pure type Pokémon on your team, it is not allowed.
- Legendaries and Mega Kangaskahn are banned.
- A Gym Leader or an Elite 4 member may keep a pool of up to 9 Pokémon to choose their team from at any time. All Pokémon on the team must match their monotype.
- There are no duplicate Pokémon (any with the same Pokédex number) or any duplicate items allowed in any Gym Leaders’ official battles.
Mixed Team League Challenge:
- Any group member may challenge the League with any Pokémon team of their choice, abiding the legendary and Mega Kangaskan clause.
- A team of 6 mixed Pokémon may be chosen from a roster of 9 available Pokémon to be used during battle with each Gym Leader. All of these Pokémon may change moves or items between Gyms during the challenge, as long as nothing is duplicated.
- If the challenger alters their team of 9 by replacing a poke, they must restart their Gym Challenge, forfeiting the Badges that they earned.
- The challenger may battle the Gyms in any order, but the Elite 4 must be battled in specific order.
- When the challenger defeats a Gym, they must ask for or accept the Leader’s official Gym Badge, which will be a Gym-specific Pokémon, that will be nicknamed accordingly. The challenger must present all 8 badges to the first Elite 4 member to prove their victories before starting their Elite 4 challenge.
- Each challenger is granted a total of 3 opportunities to defeat the 8 Gym Leaders. When a loss (out of the 3 allowed) occurs during the Mixed Challenge, the challenger must wait 48 hours before battling the Gym Leader that defeated them. They may battle other Gym Leaders that they have not lost to in the 48 hours.
- If the challenger fails to defeat the gyms in 3 attempts or less, they must forfeit the badges earned and restart again.
- Once the challenger has defeated the 8th gym, this is considered a “Save Point”. If the challenger challenges the Elite 4 and loses before defeating the final Elite 4 member, the challenger must restart at the 1st Elite 4 member, after a penalty of 48 hours.
- Once the challenger reaches the Elite 4, they have the option to compete in the Champion Challenge. (http://goo.gl/dOHNlY)
The Monotype Challenge:
- During this challenge, the challenger MUST use a Monotype team with a pure type in their party at all times; the type may be any type, but there may only be one Gym Leader of that type at anytime. A person can only have 1 Gym position at a time.
- The Mono Challenger must use their team of 9, as is (That is to say without changing either moves, IVs, EVs) all the way through their Mono Challenge. The last person that the challenger is able to beat in succession is the spot they will take, and everyone beaten will fall one spot down in the ladder, accordingly.
- If the Mono Challenger wishes to go for a type already present in the League, they must defeat that League member in battle; but only after they have reached that League member legitimately through defeating all the League members below them in the ladder. If the Challenger loses their battle against that member or before, they must rechallenge the Elite 4 with their mixed team after a wait of 1 week, to avoid rechallenge spam.
- A previous League member who has lost their position in the league entirely must rechallenge the Elite 4 with a mixed team (using Mixed Challenge rules) before being allowed to rechallenge the full league with their mono team.
- If a League Member wishes to alter their type, they must forfeit their position in the League, and can begin their challenge with the new type. You can only alter your type a total of 2 times, before having to rechallenge the Elite 4 just as they would if they lost their spot in the league due to being forced out by an incoming Mono Challenger.
- If a League Member has their pool of 9 set, and wishes to replace one Pokemon for another (not including re-breeding, changing EVs or move sets) they must challenge the league with that mono team, the same as a new mono challenger.
