Frequently Asked Questions
Q01: Can I be a Gym Leader/E4?
A01: as much as I would love to rek you 24/7, yes totally. Just pick a character, make a team using that character's pokemon from the games, anime and Manga. and let me know. Or just let me know so you won't waste that time when the spot is taken

Q02: Some characters don't use the full evolutionary line of a pokemon. Can I use the final stage evolution?
A02: Yes. For example, if the gym leader has an electabuzz back in gen 2. you can build his/her team using an electivire if you want. Another example: Let's say the Captain/Kahuna has a Poliwrath. You can use a Politoad. You can also use a Politoad AND a Poliwrath on the same team

Q03: Can I switch my character class mid challenge?
A03: No. If you want to, you will have to restart the entire challenge from scratch.

Q04: Do I have to use the same movesets as the original Gym Leader?
A04: nope, use w/e strategies and movesets you want.

Q05: Can I rematch a Gym Leader I already defeated?
A05: Yes

Q06: So which spots are available?
A06: See the announcement topic in the forum

Q07: Can I be a champ?
A07: Hell no boi/gurl, go collect your badges like the scrub you are and win the league. Unless you cleared the previous challenge then it's a different ... story :kai:

Q08: If I'm a Gym Leader and I'm a backup for another Gym Leader how do I go on to win badges and become the champ?
A08: Simple. Pick one role and go with it. If you change your mind, you will have to restart

Q09: Can a Rocket Admin steal from his grunts? What if the grunts want to steal from their boss?
A09: Rocket Admins and leaders can challenge grunts and steal stones from them. However grunts cannot steal stones from their bosses. RIP grunts :kai:

I have a litle doubt/I just want to make sure abou this, so here it goes:

• All pokemon must have movesets/bred/obtained in Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire, Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon only.


Pokémon that are transfered from VC of Gen 1 (and Gen 2 if that works by then), can't be used at all?

Thanks in advance for reading jojojo

How will this affect Kanto Exeggutor, Marowak, Raichu?
Also, do we need to verify that they are bred in gen vii, or just ensure no earlier gen moves are present? :kai:
