Gym Leader Signups Summer 2017 Welcome to the Gym Leader signups for the PO League Summer 2017 season! Please read through this post before posting your Gym Leader application. Prospective Gyms: 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): SM Ubers SM OU (may have two leaders) SM UU SM LU SM LC SM Balanced Hackmons Monotype ORAS OU BW2 OU HGSS OU ADV OU GSC OU RBY OU Battle Factory 6v6 Challenge Cup 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 your past participation as a PO League member does NOT guarantee your admission to the league as a leader in the future. PO League Member Responsibilities: 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 good activity throughout the season. Keeping track of and reporting all of your wins and losses and the date the matches happened. 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: Please use the following format when posting your application. Signups will be open until June 12th, with a prospective PO League start date of June 15th. Any 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 PO League. If you don't post a proper signup, your post may be deleted. Good luck!
