Hello all, I have my own battle thread on here, and I've learned much. I've learned that you can't be the "Best" because it's theoretically impossible to win absolutely 100% of the time...

example? some can beat skarm/bliss combos easily... I can't. But those who can often get creamed by my team.

Some teams can't beat legends.... I can crush most legends teams... I do it for fun sometimes, but some teams that can't beat legends can destroy my team...

enough said... pokemon is a big rock-paper-scizor game.


I was thinking, "hm... in that case, pokemon overall is about having fun... but I only have fun when I battle... I thirst for pokeblood... it's in my nature... but I also have honor. I want to win fairly. I don't like it when people hack their pokes... so how do I make battling more even?"

As I thought along these lines and as I looked at the leagues already on this forum, I realized that I can make things more fair by making a league that attempts to make battles more even with strict rules that will be fun if followed.


Let me explain.

This is the Elementalist League.
A league that was spawned from my thread in the strategy section called "how's the weather? (a weather effects question)"

after reading the answers it dawned upon me.

Nature is the greatest equalizer in pokemon. or the closest thing to it.
An electric might not fight well against a rock type... but in rain, it's zap cannon has higher accuracy and can kill better...
Solarbeam can go without charging up in the sun and fire moves are raised as well as water moves decreased...

these are just some of the gifts that mother nature gives us in pokemon.

The elementalist league will try to conform to nature... go with nature's flow... and ultimately thrive in nature.

There will be 4 different elements.
The HAIL league
The SANDSTORM league
The RAIN league
The SUNNYDAY league.

Within each league there will be a ranking system... you must challenge people in that ranking system to try to climb to the top. The top trainer in any league will be given the title Hail/rain/sunnyday/sandstorm Elementalist.

Why does this make things fair you say?

This league isn't about winning the battle with the deadliest combo :biggrin: It is about winning with the help of nature. Because by being in harmony with nature, your pokemon will most likely be able to work as a team. It will force you to think "Hmmm... how do I make a team that can take advantage of a sand storm? etc..."

it is about the beauty of strategy involved.

To win a challenge within a league, the weather effects specified must be used throughout the battle. any attempt by any battler to change the weather will result in disqualification from that league. It is optional to use the weather to your benefit, but that is the only weather effect that is allowed in the battle. So when challenging in a league... try to make teams that can benefit from that league's weather.

Official rules:
1. Only the weather specified by the name of the league is allowed.

2. The only Ubers allowed are Groudon and Kyogre and they must only be used in their own leagues... groudon in sunny league, kyogre in raindance league.

3. Non Uber legends are allowed... such as celebi and manaphy.

4. No more than 2 legends per team.

5. You are required to tell your opponent if you are going to use groudon or kyogre.. not doing so will result in disqualification.

6. You are not allowed to have more than 1 of the same pokemon... in other words you can't have 2 groudons on your team.

7. IF you take someone's spot, you and that person switches places on the league's rankings..

8. To take someone's spot, you must have 3 battles. 2 battles in lv 100 Singles, and one battle in lv 100 Doubles... the winner of 2 or more battles will take the other person's spot, unless the winner has the higher ranking. If a tie results in one of the battles and the other two are split wins, then a tie-breaker lv 100 doubles must be played.

9. You may challenge anyone up to 3 above your rank. Rank 2 can only challenge rank 1. rank 3 can only challenge rank 2 and 3.

10. You may not challenge the same person twice in one week unless your rank has changed in that week.

11. If the rankings change due to a challenge, it is your responsibilty to PM me the results. the loser of the rank must confirm your victory. Good sportsmanship is expected of all players.

12. harrassing comments or indecency will result in a disqualification (losing your rank) and a warning. If it happens a second time after a warning has been given, the player may be banned from ALL of the Elementalist Leagues...

13. To enter the league you must follow all the above rules and challenge the lowest ranking player in that weather league and win.

14. The lowest player upon losing will move down one rank.. if he/she was the 30th place, then the winner becomes the 30th place and he/she becomes the 31st.

15. Player may be entered in multiple leagues... since anyone can have multiple teams... but do so at your own discretion... because....

16. If you are challenged and do not respond within a week, and the challenger has not canceled the challenge before then, you will be removed from the league due to inactivity... You must reenter the league the hard way, UNLESS you declare a vacation. I will reserve your place for one week max. (that's really 2 weeks since you can get challenged the second week and not respond... only on the 3rd week will you be kicked if you don't come back)

17. players may not challenge more than one person at a time. If you want to challenge a different person, your previous challenge must be canceled or withdrawn.

18. To challenge or cancel a challenge, you must post on this thread. Please remember the page number of your challenge. ALSO, you must PM the person you are challenging, and notify them on the same day of your post on this thread.

19. I reserve the right to change the above rules.

20. To start off the league anyone interested in joining must battle me using the above rules. You do not have to win... But you must impress me, since you'll be the Elementalist...

21. You must accept challenges if you can. If you are online and you have an active challenge, you must respond if you are able to... if I catch you dodging challenges you will be disqualified and possibly be removed from the league.

22. YOU MUST BE PATIENT WITH ME!! I can't promise that I'll be online everyday... but I'll try my best to log on at least once a day to update ranks

23. You may only switch ranks once a day (lol, ok, that'll help me a bit... I don't want to be too busy, plus this will make defending your ranks a bit easier)

24. Last rank protection clause: the last ranking member of any league can only be challenged by 2 non members a day.

THE RANKINGS....

SUNNY DAY LEAGUE
SUNNY DAY ELEMENTALIST: FeFe31619
Rank 2
Rank 3
etc...


SAND STORM LEAGUE

SAND STORM ELEMENTALIST: Kill_shot
rank 2
rank 3

RAIN DANCE LEAGUE

RAIN ELEMENTALIST:
rank 2
rank 3


HAIL LEAGUE

HAIL ELEMENTALIST:
rank 2
rank 3


If you are the elementalist, you may request a different name than Elementalist if you can defend your position for more than 2 weeks. Otherwise your title will remain as the ELEMENTALIST of that weather.


If anyone has any questions or comments please pm me...
ENJOY!:biggrin:

It is neither against nor for... it is simply neutral... I don't understand how a league could be against another. I'm a leader in Rangers after all. I wanted to make a league with stricter rules, and an emphasis on weather. THat's all.

Well unfortuanately you said your with the Atasuki so that means your againts the Pe2k's. Also im afraid that you cant be a ranger if the Pe2k Elementals are going to be on with the Elite Bandits. Its how things go and what Light_Titan says as policy for the war. You still have leader membership but if you keep going more with the Elite Bandits then im afraid i got to take you off

Also you spelled , " A Last " wrong ( you said A lest )

First of all, I'm not part of the Bandits.

I'm part of akatsuki cuz it's good.
If you're going to be snotty and hating, then I want to have nothing to do with your league.

Lastly, DON"T EVER threaten me with anything. Take me off your league if you want. Don't expect me to beg.

sigh... why does the rangers have to make rules like that? so no one else can create a different league and enjoy the forum like they do? that's plain unfair... I'm sorry but this makes me fully against PE2K's rangers and their league... not only snobby but won't let others have fun.

that's cool... I'm not blaming you...

I just thought that it would be fun to make a league more focused on being fair for everybody... you know weather effects can be very helpful right? and it is easy to see if someone breaks the rules.. you can't change the weather without being noticed.

and just to make things clear... I'm usually very serious about things... but this is one of the times when i emphasize fun... I created this league for fun, and I hope that people will enjoy the idea... regardless of whether this becomes a huge success...

It's true and also i wish i can make my own rules ( except for the name and all the badge designs ) but i gotta follow Pe2k rules.

funny how you're almost never online when I'm online... well... we must be in different time zones... hope I can battle you soon... (read all the rulez...) I won't go by them for one reason... I don't change the weather... my team can get boosts from any weather, it just depends on the situation... and you don't even have to beat me... you just have to show with what you bring that you understand the idea of the league.
