PO League will have sixteen gyms this year. You need to attain seven badges to make it to the elite four. You are allowed nine losses against gym leaders. In case this is confusion, your tenth loss means that you are out while you are still eligible for the elite four after your ninth loss. Gym leaders automatically get their own badge, but they have one less loss in exchange (so they can only lose eight times and their ninth loss is the end of the road). Elite four members have to challenge gyms like a normal challenger, but if they reach the elite four then they already have their own Elite four beaten. If you beat the elite four, you must defeat the champion (@MetalGross) to get the trophy badge icon ribbon thing!!! You may challenge a gym once every five days - this holds true for every individual gym, not leader. For example, you can challenge one CC leader on Monday and then you cannot challenge any CC leader for another five days. On the contrary, if you challenge the CC gym on Monday and lose, you can still challenge any other gym immediately afterwards barring other circumstances. The season will be approximately two months long. Any questions should be asked to me via Forum PM. Any amendments to these rules or additions to these rules may be made at any point, but they will be done in new posts and then edited into this OP.
