Alola, trainers! It’s time to battle in our brand new SE++ League!

SE++ LEAGUE

Single Battle, Normal Rules (which sets all Pokemon to Level 50). Banned pokemon and clauses in effect are listed here!

Other details:
1. Start date: Now!!
2. Gyms: Anyone can start a gym, they just have to be generally available (e.g. be able to have a match within a week of being challenged) and either have a team set up around a Theme or a Type. Overlap is fine, just come up with a new badge.
3. Challengers: Anyone can be a challenger, including gym leaders (using a different team to challenge from their gym team is fine).
4. Depending on interest level, we'll either a number of badges to qualify for an E4 and champion tourney, or just go straight to setting up an E4 and have people duke out for the champion position. We're still figuring this part out. :D

    I'm making a turtle gym and no one can stop me.

    Unless they use Pokemon in which case I will likely fold like a bad poker hand.

    Those are good gyms. What kind of pokemons would be on those gyms?

    SilverWind is tweaking her Eevee team specifically to be able to counter threats I'm bringing up. We have never been closer.

    My gym is going to be Steel. I don't think there's anyone new from this generation that I'd add to it, especially since it's already 8 pokes deep.

    More newbie questions, though this is more from stuff I kind of maybe absorbed about Pokémon during my extended break from the franchise: is it possible to trade/transfer Pokémon between versions of the game, allowing access to mons not in the current version? Presumably if so that is a useful thing when building/optimizing teams?

    It is possible, yes, through the use of the Pokebank, which is compatible with X&Y and Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire. In January it will be made compatible with Sun and Moon, which will let you bring forward mons from previous gens.

    Of course you don't need to do that! Plenty of nice folks in here will gladly give you some mons from older gens, once they're available.

    My gym is gonna be Rad Femme themed.

    Froslass
    Primarina
    Magearna
    Salazzle
    Toxapex
    Tsareena

    The only one I really question, theme-wise, is Toxapex. It's just sort of an animal compared to the more humanoid Mareanie. Not sure what I can replace it with though.

    If I find I'm bit bad by the pokebug and decide I want more, am I going to find it hard to play the older games after playing S/M or do they hold up well?

    There are some good QoL improvements in SuMo but in a lot of ways XY and ORAS are better too.

    Well I was GOING to make Steel Team Six but since someone on this page has already claimed Steel I guess I gotta use a different type.

    Dragon would be fun except now Fairy is everywhere, and Fire is a pretty terrible idea but it's the only remaining of my three favorite types.

    I suppose I could be a little more flexible with what I consider Dragons and include stuff like Milotic. Or make my gym Steel-Dragon-Fire type, which unfortunately don't have a lot of overlap outside of Legendaries.

    EDIT: Or I could just build a regular team like a regular schmuck, I guess.

    I think a flying gym could be fun, but if it looks like I may be too dependent on requests for things like Defog and move tutors then I might pick something a little simpler. I'll see how it goes.

    People going back have found it a bit clunky to play X&Y compared to Sun and Moon. Sun and Moon are definitely the smoother games! But the older ones are still pretty all right.

    You can choose a gym theme or type that someone else is doing too. Odds are veeeeery low that it'd be exactly alike.

    That also gives the chance for a gym versus gym battle, which sounds like a fun concept??

    so I stumbled into the E4 last night and got whooped pretty handily on the first round. Where's a good place to grind a bit? There isn't really a Victory Road to speak of and the Pokes pre-League are chump change compared to my team.

    I'll probably get grassbaes ready and then see if anyone wants to give me crabs

    There isn't a good grinding place that o know of, sadly. I leveled my pokes by hurling them at the E4 until they could win.

    Poni canyon is decent since at least you're fighting evolved pokes (the ice cave is just like sneasels and shit). The canyon is also sort of like a surrogate victory road anyway.

    Also tonight, when I was feeling mighty shit and depressed, I took my mind off it by catching all the colour variations (not shiny) of Minior. My gay rainbow babies are all grinding it out on Poke Pelago so I can have these lvl 99 gay rainbow space star babies.

    I also now have a Lurantis called Pyjamas.


    And who was making the Thicc team? Add Hariyama. Dem thighs.

    I did a crab gym formerly. The Cephalothorax Gym! It was terrible because of typing and well tbh I could have trained them better.
