    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!

    Tiers applying for: SM Balanced Hackmons

    Interested in Elite Four: Gym Leader only

    Accomplishments: I haven't been online for a tournament that had over 4 people like ever (lol), Started off rocky, but I've been in top 5 of the tier for the past few months, Currently standing as #2, been at the #1 spot multiple times, but I haven't been below #5 for longer than a day in a very long time. I'm one of the most consistent people currently playing this tier and lastly I personally enjoy this tier very much.

    Timezone: Eastern Standard Time; GMT -4

    Availability: Im about to start a new job, I can get that information to you all within the next week, it will likely be mornings if I can help it.

    Other: The biggest thing for me is just the personal interest, I think this tier is way underplayed and this would be good encouragement to get more people into it. I think this tier takes a high level of strategy and planning to get the results you really want, which also helps in other tiers. I personally got better at other tiers when I understood Hackmons. People who play me know I can be rather chatty about this tier with ideas and strategies because the possibilities are nearly endless. I have quite a few sets I can run, and I've helped other people get better at this tier with viable strategies and tips, even tips that have led to people beating me later on (not consistently, but it has happened).

    Please note that ORAS OU has been added to the gym tier list, since it was initially omitted due to an oversight.

    UPDATE: My times will likely be Saturday and Sunday mornings, and as of today, my rank is 1 in SM Balanced Hackmons, I've been a little inconsistent lately, but with the adjustments after coming back, I'm up by ~50 points.

    Just posting a reminder that the deadline for Gym Leader signups is Monday, June 12th. Also, there have been no applicants for BW2 OU or RBY OU so far, so if you would be interested in being a Gym Leader for one of these tiers, feel free to apply.
