Gym Leader Signups Summer 2016 Welcome to the gym leader signups for the PO League Summer Season! The following tiers will be considered for a gym (a tier or two may be excluded depending on who signs up and what is deemed best for the league when going through applications): ORAS Ubers ORAS OU (may have two leaders) ORAS UU ORAS LU ORAS NU ORAS LC ORAS Balanced Hackmons BW2 OU HGSS OU ADV OU GSC OU RBY OU Challenge Cup Battle Factory 6v6 Inverted Battle Monotype If you are new to the gym leader selection process, we are looking for the best of battlers! We pride ourselves on choosing well qualified gym leaders who offer some of the best competitive challenges in their tiers, so make sure you are confident that you can live up to this standard! We also favor an experienced approach - former gym leaders looking to take up their titles again will be given preference in most cases, but not in all cases and just because you have been part of the league in the past does NOT guarantee your admission to the league as a leader in the future. If you get accepted for the position, your responsibilities will include, but not be limited to, the following: Trying to maintain a healthy win/loss record. Maintaining decent amount of activity throughout the season, which is Mid-May to Mid-July in this case. Keep track of and report all your wins and losses, and the date they happened on. Maintain a good attitude with your challengers. Be sportsmanlike, even if it means taking a haxy loss in stride. Elite Four: The Elite Four will consist of four versatile, experienced, and skilled battlers who will pose the next obstacle between a challenger and defeating the league as a whole; so be warned that this is even tougher to be selected for than a regular leader! If you wish to be considered for the Elite Four, please mention this in your application form, along with your tiers of mastery (at least three, preferably five/seven tiers in which we can turn into a best of three or five for your prospective Elite Four). Note that not all applicants will be accepted for this, similar to that for gym positions, but you certainly may and are heavily encouraged to sign-up for both Gym Leader and Elite Four positions, even if you doubt your odds of making one or the other, so please apply if you have the desire to. Application: Server names: (feel free to list any and all you wish to disclose to the public) Tiers applying for: (must be from the official list!) Interested in Elite Four: Yes/No (if yes, please mention your tiers of mastery for prospective Elite 4) Accomplishments: (any accomplishments you feel add weight to your application eg. ladder peaks, official tournament wins, server tour rankings etc.) Timezone: (in GMT) Availability: (self-explanatory) Comments: (any other comments you would like to be considered) Signups will be open until May 21, with a prospective League start date of May 26. All pending Elite 4 challenges must be completed before then. A thread with all of the rules and regulations for this specific season will be posted alongside the release of gym leaders around the start of the league. If you don't post a proper signup, your post will be deleted. Good luck!
