  • Both challengers and gymleaders are not allowed to use items during a battle.
    (This excludes held items.
  • Only one pokemon on either players' team can be asleep at a time.
    (This excludes self induced sleep.) E.g. This is not allowed but This is
  • Challengers are only allowed to bring one of each pokemon to the gym battle.
    (You cannot bring two starmie's to gym 1, but having 1 staryu and 1 starmie is okay.)
  • The following Pokemon are banned in gym battles: Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, Mewtwo, Lugia, Ho-oh, Deoxys, Greninja, Blaziken, Any Mega Pokemon
    (Using these pokemon will result in an instant disqualification.)
  • Unobtainable Pokemon at that level (other than by breeding two dittos or purchase) in the actual Pokemon Games cannot be used in gym battles.
    (If a Pokemon cannot be obtained legitimately (no, breeding two dittos does not count as legitimate) at level 20, you cannot take it to the Rock Gym. For example, you cannot bring a level 20 Dragonite to the rock gym because it evolves at level 55.)



NOTICE: Gym are now able to be challenged in any order. You don't have to follow the order in the handheld games anymore. You may challenge any gym without having prior badges!

General Rules / Guidelines

Leveling up in a gym battle is allowed, but be weary as level caps to the gyms are enforced. Level cap at Gym1 is 20 and progressively increases by 10 levels at each gym.

Pokemon nicknames are allowed, but if a leader asks you what pokemon it is, you must answer honestly. Also, your Pokemon cannot be nicknamed another Pokemon's name, it is misleading and warrents a disqualification.

If you miss your opportunity to challenge the leader wait till they are ready to battle again or wait for another leader. Which means please do not demand a gym battle. Your challenge can get declined.

Listen to and respect the gym leaders, if not you will be declined a battle.

If you use profanity against the leaders, i.e swearing / name calling, you will be declined not only a battle, but you can also be muted, kicked, or banned from the server.

If the server crashes or either person disconnects during a gym battle, then resume the battle from the point. If the challenger heals at this point, it will be considered a loss. If the gym leader heals at this point, please contact me.

Keep pokemon in their pokeballs inside a gym unless you are in the battle with the leader.

If a battle results in a tie, it's counted as the gym leader's win.
