    I'm wanting to do basically a draft league where people snake draft pokemon (maybe 12ish or more pokemon) then they all battle eachother throughout the rounds which are likely going to be every week. Someone may sub in if they plan on missing a week but will take over that team. (undecided, thought about letting 2 people be on each team & working together but of course only one battler from each team battles each other) The top 8 teams will go to the playoffs & face each other. the 4 with the best records after that go to the semis, where there will only be 2 battles. The winners go to the finals.

    yea on paper this is a really great and fun idea but it's HIGHLY unlikely it will work due to a sharp drop in interest of the participants a few weeks in, ive been part of a bunch of those during gen 6 and they barely ever get to playoffs, many people drop out which is always problematic, and setting a time for the draft is the biggest headache if you want to make it legit and have everyone participate.
    See trace's survivor forum game, it will be the same but draft league requires a lot more effort.

    I plan on (if it were to get through) to put the effort it takes plus probably get someone to host with me

    trust me ao im sure u are way more than capable of hosting, the problem will come from the unwillingness of the participants to build/play on time

    well, we'll see ig. maybe sumo being here will motivate or get people more into something like this. ps mains can also be a part. I'll of course make note of only joining if you plan on being in a lengthy league etc
