In a world where cookie-cutter movesets run rampant throughout the metagame, there is one who dares to defy the status-quo...

Within these walls, this gym sings the praises of the unique, the virtues of that which some might call a gimmick...
It also likes sounding mysterious through the overuse of ellipsis...

Pokemon is a battle of minds- not a competition on who can EV train the same team better or get a lucky hit.

Within my arsenal of combatants, not a single one of them utilizes an othodox strategy- each member upholding the creativity I hold so dear.

If you can best my custom-made team, you'll be one of the lucky few to earn the Copyright Badge!
http://www.thespeedgamers.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/copyright_badge.png
(Patented, Trademarked and as the name implies, Copyrighted in all applicable territories)
(Not really, but wouldn't that be cool? And by cool, I actually mean pitiful.)

Rules:
- Evasion Clause: Active
-Moves like Double Team and Minimize are not allowed

- Freeze Clause: Active
-Two team members cannot be frozen at the same time

- Sleep Clause: Active
-Two team members cannot be asleep at the same time(with exception to rest)

- OHKO Clause: Active
-No one-hit KO moves(Such as Fissure, Sheer Cold, and the like)

- Species Clause: Active(with exceptions)
-Only one pokemon of each species allowed per team, UNLESS they run completely different movesets.
(I'm running this gym to see creative and unique teams, so if you can do something cool with it, more power to you but remember that other gyms don't share my view on this clause.)

- Self KO Clause: Active
-If both players have only one Pokmon left, moves which KO both the user and the opponent(e.g. Explosion, Destiny Bond) will count as a forfeit by the user of aforementioned move. If recoil damage would cause a tie, Self KO Clause does not activate, and the match will result in a draw, the challenger recieving a coveted Copyright Badge.

- Item Clause: Inactive
-You can use the same item on each pokemon on your team if you wish, though the whole point of this gym is mixing things up and seeing something different, so I kindly ask that not all six of your team use leftovers or the like...

Voice chat is off by default, but if you prefer it on- message me beforehand and I'll try to curb my constant cursing for once...

The following pokemon are banned from use in this gym:
[spoiler:1y83todi]Arceus
Darkrai
Deoxys (All forms)
Dialga
Garchomp
Giratina (Both forms)
Groudon
Ho-oh
Kyogre
Latias
Latios
Lugia
Manaphy
Mew
Mewtwo
Palkia
Rayquaza
Salamence
Shaymin Sky Form
Wobbuffet
Wynaut[/spoiler:1y83todi]

Also, I feel bad that I have to state this last rule, but no hacking or cheating- If it is suspected that your pokemon are hacked using pokesav or the like, I will contact ck14500 and we will examine your team. If the allegations prove to be true, you will be BANNED from participating in the league.

Challenges:
I'm in it for the fun of it, so I might as well make it fun for y'all too, right?
If bragging rights and the beautiful Copyright Badge aren't enough for you, I'll throw in fantastic prizes!

Hat Trick: Beat me three times in a row and I'll give you a bred pokemon with good IVs and beneficial nature of your choice.
(Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery, COD is accepted)

Copyleft: Battle me with a team I find truly brilliant(Whether you beat me or not) and you'll revieve a mystery egg and a random semi-rare item.(In exchange for letting me take a look at your team, or the specific impressive pokemon, for reference purposes)

Clean Sweep: Get a 6-0 victory against me and not only will you get the badge(and shatter my fragile ego), but you'll also get a mystery egg and a random semi-rare item.

Alright Ditto- you got me to wake up at 9AM, which is quite the achievement... Good job- but since you're a no-show I win by default. _dead2_

I have this week's gym hours posted, so feel free to try again sometime in the future.
