    Gym Leader Try-out Information & Discussion

    Post  El Swad on Sat Feb 11, 2012 11:57 am

    Okay, this is how it goes:
    A person challenges Marisa, Leon or me for GL try-outs.
    We battle this person and look at his playstyle, Pokémon-choice and attitude in battle. (It's not important whether the challenger wins or loses to one of us, it's about HOW he plays. Even if he loses 6-0, he might be good enough for GL, if, for example, all your Pokémon were below 10%).
    The challenger can ask for as many try-outs as he wants, anytime he wants. We may always reject him or forward him to a different one of us.
    If he only asked one of us for a try-out, and he said he's good enough to be GL, he can be a GL.
    If he asked two or more, the decision should be unanimously made by everyone he challenged for try-out.
    The challenger MUST battle with the team he wants to use as GL. We're free to give advice etc..


    We're also using this topic to discuss people that want to be Gym Leader.

    This post is about Byakuren Hiziri.
    He wants to be the Psychic-type Gym Leader.
    Having challenged both me and Leon, he needs both our approvals. He already got Leon's, which I find rather strange.

    I just battled him, the log is in the spoiler, and I'll tell you why he shouldn't be GL (yet).

    [FC]Byakuren Hiziri: gg

    [FC]El Swad: gg anyway

    Spoiler:
    First thing:
    No clauses.

    Turn 1:
    Protects for a Speed Boost, so Blaziken will outspeed Hydreigon and kill it with HJK on turn 2.
    Draco Meteor misses, didn't matter.

    Turn 2:
    This isn't the first time I battled him, nor is it the second, and apparently, he forgot that my Hydreigon is scarfed, making him outspeed Blaziken and OHKO it with DM.

    Turn 3:
    His Metagross uses Rock Slide. I know three better moves to have, and he uses Rock Slide confused
    I switched to Haxorus here predicting an Agility.

    Turn 4:
    Scarfed Haxorus OHKOs Metagross (useless crit).

    Turn 5:
    Haxorus is scarfed, he sends in an Alakazam.
    Yeah, that's an OHKO.

    Turn 6:
    Now he sends in Latios. It's only natural I won't stay in, so why would he use Dragon Pulse?

    Turn 7:
    I did expect Espeon here, so that's why I used Toxic instead of Stealth Rock, because if he DIDN'T send in Espeon, he would have a Toxic'd Pokémon.

    Turn 8:
    Hidden Power [Fire] on an Espeon.
    Wut?
    He even used it on Flash Fire Heatran.

    Turn 9:
    Apparently, his Espeon was scarfed.

    Turn 10:
    He sends in Gallade on Heatran.
    He uses Close Combat, so I switched to Dragonite to take the hit.

    Turn 11:
    Damnit, that thing has Ice Punch >:(

    [FC]Byakuren Hiziri: The first one is that I don't know DP Pokemon well.
    Solely for this I think we shouldn't let him be GL.

    Turn 12:
    Heatran, scouting.

    Turn 13:
    Switch to Salamence, which was easily predictable, another Ice Punch would have killed him.

    Turn 14:
    Salamence KOes him.

    Turn 15:
    He sends in his last Pokémon, Latios.
    He uses Draco Meteor. Latios is scarfed, which means he'll stay locked in it, losing SpA every time he uses it succesfully.
    That's why I switched to Heatran.

    Turns 16 - 21:
    Heatran defeating locked Latios.

    He did stay polite, and he was very fanatic.
    Probably the only plusses.
