Though if the elite test is going to be very soon and I won't have time to get them, then this is my team:

Electabuzz{own}

Charizard{own}
Gardevoir{own}
Swampert{own}

Goodluck to alll participants.

Battles are fought in 6 vs 6, Stadium, no items, but you could ask for colleseum. What is exactly the difference between them, mana?

Colliseum is RS and Stadium is GSC

Stadium- You battle like Stadium rules :rolleyes:

Colleseum- You battle Stadium mode with using the Abilities of Pokemon ^^

I see. I think the elite four can decide upon this rule.

New rules! You can still modify your team.
Once the deadline is reached, we'll start with each testing stage.
If there are more than 8 entries, we'll have to...um, ignore one or more entries. This decition will be madae depending of the strength of your team.

Testing Stage 1-
Interview
This counts for little but we need to know what kind of attitudes we are dealing with in this elite test. 0 points, it's the base for the public vote.

Testing stage 2-
Public Vote
Though this also counts for very little it is important that the public gets some say in this. So for the second testing stage, vote for who you think should be an elite by pm. 25 Points.

Testing stage 3-
A 3 vs 3 fight vs. either Curtis or Marth. 25 points.

Testing stage 4-
A mini free-for-all tournament. Rules are 3 vs 3, stadium fight, no items.
50 points to the winner.

Depending on your place is the number of points you get. I'll do the grading scale later.
And, people...




DEADLINE: AUGUST 31TH.

I have a question; are you allowed to be a Gym Leader and an Elite 4 member? If so, it doesn't seem fair to me that you can be both. It's doesn't happen on the games.

JohtoTrainer
08-20-2004, 01:00 AM
Um, yes u can, (Dux and Curtis are both Elite 4 members and Gym Leaders) and it IS fair because being a Gym Leader or Elite member is not a right but a privelage.

Phoenix004
08-20-2004, 01:32 AM
Yes it is a privelage JT, but that is irrelevant to the point I am making. We aren't allowed to be the leader of two different Gyms but we are allowed to be a Leader and an E4 member? Half the people who have applied for this position are already Gym Leaders. If one of them becomes an E4 member, then they are taking up the spot of somebody who wants to be a Gym Leader. How is that fair?

Half the people who have applied for this position are already Gym Leaders. If one of them becomes an E4 member, then they are taking up the spot of somebody who wants to be a Gym Leader. How is that fair?

Honestly..there are not-so-good gym leaders who are just starting. They are getting money, and they get beter over the time.
I belive Curtis and I have had enough time to have a very good strategy at our gyms. And that helped us, therefore, to become an Elite.
Furthermore, how can you be 2 gym leaders at the same time? Or 2 elites at the same time? But, yes, you can be a gym leader and an elite.
I think it's clear that gym leaders is different from Elite 4.
And, another thing.....there are a lot of empty gyms right now. And, I don't know any good trainer that ISN'T a gym leader, except omegamiko because he doesn't have the time to fight.
This has been already discussed. Phoenix, the Elite four are supposed to be the best URPGers in the URPG. Gym Leader means just a position. You can be both for these reasons:
1.- You are a gym leader. That's your position in the leagues, and shouldn't be taken off you.
2.- If you became an elite, it means you are one of the best. This isn't considered a "gym position", as JT says, it's a privilege and an honor to be an elite four.

JohtoTrainer
08-20-2004, 01:55 AM
It doesn't matter who WANTS to be a Gym Leader. It's who is the best at that Type of Pokemon. That's just like saying that just because they wanna be a Gym LEader they should be. THat's why u have to own one Pokemon. It's not all about Fairness here.

How is that fair?

To be quite honest, how many ppl have the requirements to challenge the Elite 4? If you can't be a gym leader and only a 13374, then you're missing out on a lot of money even though you "technically" have that coveted spot.

Feel free to kick me off if needed...wouldn't really bother me.

Matthew
08-20-2004, 07:41 AM
Why aren't the elites specialized in type? It's like that in the game which the URPG is modeled after... Is it because it raises the difficulty level? Hmmm... Just another question to ask.

koolcurtis
08-20-2004, 11:25 PM
If they specialize in type, then it's would basically be another gym :tongue:

And marth, you think 3v3 is enough? :confused: They could have 3 good mon and 3 bad mon. I would think we need to check all 6 of their elite mon, not just 3. But then the battles might take too long -_-. Just a thought though...

Jack of Clovers
08-21-2004, 06:51 AM
well, since Flare posted in the general board about how he isn't leavin (only resigning leadership), how does this effect the elite? im betting he would still have his position and thus there would be no need to find a new elite member. so, um, ask him tomorrow at the meeting :biggrin:

~Jack~

stripeduck
08-21-2004, 02:28 PM
I have to agree what they said about Gym Leader and Elite being two different things.. as well as it is Priviledge to be an Elite, It is a tremendous job to do, they pretty much make sure that only the most true trainers come out on top. That might sound kinda corny or so, but that what it is, well as for the game's view or so. As for measuring between Gym Leader and Elite, Elites are not a continueous job like Gym Leaders themselves, they have so small many who will actually battle them. Anyways I just wanted to post something I thought.

As for signing up, I don't know if I want to or not, hmm.. When the deadline for signups? I am contemplating on if I want to or not.

Flareon resigned to leadership, true, but I don't think he'll want to keep his elite four position.
So we're still doing this thing.
3 vs 3 battles against each other is because the time. We'll evaluate their elite 4 Team though.
