View Full Version : Great Barrier Gym [Poser Badge] *CLOSED*

THIS GYM IS NOW CLOSED!

Nwehehehehehehehehe! (that's one "nwe" and eight "he's") Welcome, puny challengers, to the
Great Barrier Gym!
http://i50.tinypic.com/18i5ib.jpg

Here in this Great Lake state, my Pokemon and I have trained nonstop in the spectacular ways of the Barrier Trio. Over time, our bonds have grown strong, and our strategies nearly flawless.

This is where I shall test your wisdom, power, and courage, awarding the Poser Badge to those tough enough to defeat me:

http://i45.tinypic.com/2lneiiu.png

They say that good things come in 3's, so my gym has a special twist to it. I've assembled a group of my strongest Pokemon, and to make things more interesting, I'm allowing you to randomly pick 3 of them. I have 24 battle-ready Pokemon in my PC, and all you have to do is pick three numbers between 1 and 24 upon challenging my gym.* The three Pokemon that match those numbers will be on my team, and the other three will be selected by me. But be warned, my Pokemon are all trained to work together, so no matter which three you pick, you're in for a tough battle. However if you're really feeling lucky, you can take on a team completely of my choosing, but don't expect to win against the best of the best. :P


Da Rules
- All battles will follow the standard league rules (http://community.thespeedgamers.com/viewtopic.php?p=167251#p167251) (aside from Freeze clause, since there's no way to enforce it). If you break them, your challenge will not count.
- Voice chat will always be off.
- Upon losing a battle, you must wait at least 24 hours for a rematch. You may either challenge the same team again, or you can test your luck by choosing three new numbers for a new team.
- In the event of a disconnection on the challenger's end, I will decide whether or not to allow a rematch the same day, depending on the situation.

Gym Hours
My FC: 3309 4295 2427

Since I keep a pretty random schedule, I won't have any set gym hours. Just PM me or post here when you want to battle (along with three numbers or requesting to battle my selected team), and I'll get back to you as soon as possible. I'm on the forums just about every day, so chances are even if I'm not online at the time, I'll see your request and reply sometime within the same day.

The only times I'm not available are before 7PM EST on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.

Waiting List (all times in EST)

Man so many creative gyms this season can't wait to try them out. One question though will these be 3 on 3 battles?

pkGamerB
02-18-2010, 04:00 PM
Nope, they're 6 on 6. You guys just get to randomly pick 3 of my Pokemon, and I'll add my own 3 that fit the best with them.

02-18-2010, 04:04 PM
That's a really smart idea. Seriously

02-21-2010, 10:06 PM
If your free tueday then how bout 8:30 EST(7:30 CST) on tuesday night. As for the numbers, since my lucky number is 2 how about 2, 12 and 20.

Brineboy
02-22-2010, 08:38 PM
Would you be up for having a battle around 9:30 est tomorrow and for the numbers lets go with 3, 4, and 19

xClutchxF
02-22-2010, 08:46 PM
Can I battle you at 5 EST tom?

pkGamerB
02-23-2010, 11:00 AM
Okay, Clutch, Weavile, and Brine have all been added to the waiting list.

Also, Pokemon #21-23 are now ready for battle, and #24 should be ready by Thursday at the latest. So from now on, when anyone challenges the gym, pick a number between 1 and 24 (those of you have already chosen your numbers before this post can pick again if you like). I'll update the first post so say the same thing.

Edit: I also ask that everyone post their FC when you make a challenge, just to make things easier for me.

windows98
02-23-2010, 01:57 PM
Can I battle you at 8 pm tonight?

My FC is 2664 7981 5286 if you need it.

pkGamerB
02-23-2010, 02:18 PM
That should be fine windows, as long as I'm not having dinner at the time. If I'm not able to, is 9pm EST okay? Also, you forgot to pick your three numbers.

Brineboy
02-23-2010, 02:24 PM

pkGamerB
02-23-2010, 08:55 PM
Good game Brine, you put up a tough fight.

For those of you who lost to me today, you may schedule for a rematch as early as 24 hours from when your challenge was today. However, new challengers will have priority over rematches, so you may or may not get a rematch right away.

(3-1 in my first day as gym leader. Not bad, I say. :P)

Brineboy
02-23-2010, 08:58 PM
Yea good match there that one leaf storm is pretty much what did me in then I completely drew a blank when one of my pokemon had a move that would've been more effective to it when switching T.T

Anywho, I'd like to congratulate Blaumager for winning a spectacular battle against me and earning the Poser Badge. :)

Blaumagier
02-26-2010, 09:21 PM

It was a good match, and now I've only got 3 badges left. Looks like Alan is next as soon as I'm able to have a rematch with him.

Hey pk, Can you battle now? I'd like to challenge you for your Poser Badge.

pkGamerB

Sure. Just pick your three numbers so I can get my team together.

ditto493
02-27-2010, 05:29 PM
I guess you're refering to the rules I didn't read. Let me read them and I'll choose.

edit: Ok, I'll choose the numbers 5, 21, and 11. I am now waiting in the Wi-Fi Club.

pkGamerB
02-27-2010, 05:40 PM
Okay, I'm getting online right now.

Edit: Good game Ditto, you started to make a little comeback in the end.

ditto493
02-27-2010, 05:56 PM

pkGamerB
02-28-2010, 03:21 PM
Quick update about my gym hours this week. I'm starting a new schedule at school, so I won't be accepting any challenges today or Wednesday (March 3). Also, on Tuesday, I won't be taking any challenges after 8 pm. These changes may not be permanent, it just all depends on how well I adjust to my new schedule.

Dark_Weavile
02-28-2010, 06:15 PM
how bout tommorow around 9:30 EST

pkGamerB
02-28-2010, 07:05 PM
I should be free at that time, but it all depends on how much homework I have tomorrow.

pkGamerB
03-04-2010, 06:27 PM
I'd like to congratulate xClutchxF for winning the Poser Badge! After several tough battles, he pulled off a spectacular victory. :)

Dark_Weavile

pkGamerB
03-06-2010, 01:21 AM
I probably won't be free Saturday night, but I can battle sometime in the afternoon (preferrably between 2-6 pm EST) if that's okay with you. If not, I don't think I'll have any other chances to battle until Monday.

Dark_Weavile
03-06-2010, 10:46 AM
hows 3pm EST today then?

pkGamerB
03-06-2010, 10:58 AM
Yep, that works.

Edit: since you still seem to be online, I could even battle now if you want.

Dark_Weavile
03-06-2010, 11:05 AM
Yep, that works.

Edit: since you still seem to be online, I could even battle now if you want.

Dark_Weavile
03-06-2010, 11:19 AM

pkGamerB
03-06-2010, 11:28 AM
I guess that's fine, Weavile. I'll get back online, then.

@Clutch: Sure, I could go for another battle. After I'm done with Weavile, I'll get my team together and get right back on. I probably wont log back in to the forums in between since it's so hard to type with this stylus. :P

Edit: GG Weavile, I didn't think I'd be able to pull that one off.

Dark_Weavile
03-07-2010, 09:29 PM
tommorow at 8pm ok?

pkGamerB
03-07-2010, 11:21 PM
Yeah, that works for me, Weavile. Are you picking three new numbers or are you sticking with the same ones?

Oh BTW, I won't be available at all this coming Tuesday due to school and such.

Dark_Weavile
03-08-2010, 06:29 AM

:? I've been waiting for you this whole time... I was on wifi until about 8:30, and I've been on the forums ever since. I actually have somewhere to go right now, so I won't be able to battle you until after 10:00.

ya, i didnt even have sand storm out either, but gliscor+swords dance roost and double stab+bright powder is pretty awesome!!!

Kooriken
03-16-2010, 10:29 PM
I'll challenge this Gym. It will have to wait until the weekend, as during the week I'm at college and have no wifi. Also, the FC in my sig isn't for the game I'll be using, so I'll have to PM you the actual FC I'll be using. Friday or Saturday will be best for me.

pkGamerB
03-17-2010, 05:33 PM
Friday sounds good, Kooriken. I should be free pretty much anytime before 8pm. Just PM me when you want to battle, along with your FC and three numbers.

Kooriken
03-19-2010, 06:22 PM
Great match! That was really intense, and relatively hax-free on both ends. (Though I got lucky at one point in all honesty) Still, thanks for the match! I had fun, and I hope you did too!

pkGamerB
03-19-2010, 06:24 PM
Congrats on winning the Poser Badge, Kooriken! It was a spectacular battle. :D

05-09-2010, 05:47 AM
Wow, long time since a post here I see. Well, let's change that with my challenge! _awesome_

pkGamerB
05-09-2010, 09:26 AM
Sure thing, just pick a time, and give me your three numbers (or just hit me up in the chat :P).

My schedule's a little different than when this season started, so I won't be available Mondays, Tuesdays, or Thursdays before 7pm CST.

pkGamerB
05-10-2010, 05:18 PM
Sorry for the double post, but this is an idea I've been kicking around for a while now. Since the end of this season is almost at hand, and the majority of people who are competing have done so already, I'll be accepting gym rematches from now until next season starts.

However, there's a slight catch this time. Rather than challengers picking half of my team randomly, I'll be choosing my own Pokemon. There's no actual prize for beating me a second time, but you can expect a tougher challenge trying to beat me when I pick my own team. ;)

That said, anyone who's challenging me to win a badge will take priority over any rematches, so if you haven't beaten me yet, feel free to get your challenges in before it's too late!

I almost thought you had me for a while there.

xClutchxF
05-10-2010, 06:07 PM
Lol, I was hoping for a sucker punch crit. I didn't expect leaf storm to get you that low :O

pkGamerB
05-10-2010, 06:10 PM
Yeah, it was because my defense was lowered twice by Close Combat. I really had to think in that battle. You stopped my first two strategies, so I pretty much had to wing it from there. :P

Sonic62
05-11-2010, 07:24 PM
Okay, how about a battle tomorrow? Name a time! :D

pkGamerB

Not your FC :P


I've assembled a group of my strongest Pokemon, and to make things more interesting, I'm allowing you to randomly pick 3 of them. I have 24 battle-ready Pokemon in my PC, and all you have to do is pick three numbers between 1 and 24 upon challenging my gym.* The three Pokemon that match those numbers will be on my team, and the other three will be selected by me.

Congrats, Sonic! You won a hard fought battle for the Poser Badge. :D

I'll PM the three you chose in the chat. I don't want to give it away for future competitors. :P

Edit: Just three days til the season's end, folks. Be sure to get your challenges in before it's too late!
