    Gym Leader Signups
    Winter 2016

    Welcome to the gym leader signups for the PO League Winter 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.
    • 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:


    Signups will be open until November 20th, with a prospective League start date of November 25th.

    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!

    Comments:
    Considering that most SM tiers will not be available instantly and that probably nobody will be experienced enough with SM tiers to justify being a Gym Leader, I think that doing ORAS tiers while people are still likely to have teams is better than trying to sloppily put things together with new SM tiers or just skipping league altogether.

    Accomplishments: I know everything there is to know about pokemon, I currently will rarely lose with the team i have now. I have frequently won tournaments by choosing random pokemon in them.
    Elite four: I am not confident enough in my abilities to try and become an elite four member.
    Time zone: I looked it up and it said central time zone GMT? It also said 6 o'clock. I hope that helps.
    Comments: It has been so long since I have actually found a good team. And in the tier i was trying to be in as well. I spent freaking hours trying to write this because my machine kept having the keyboard disappear and I accidentally tap out of the screen. :(
