Throughout the Pokemon world, there are few occupations as prestigious as the Gym Leader. The title alone exemplifies power and expertise. Instrumental in teaching the next generation of trainers how to work alongside Pokemon. However, the process of becoming one is extremely difficult. Many Gyms are family-run, and other Gym Leaders have maintained their jobs well into their elderly years. As a result, the number of people hoping to become new Gym Leaders greatly outnumber the amount of Gyms. Just getting noticed can seem impossible. Two years ago, a special event, known as the Kalos Invitational, was held. In this event, the participants had a chance to showcase their abilities to talent scouts and influential figures from all over the world. However, the event was disrupted and ultimately canceled. Now, two years later, an announcement was made that the event has been given new life. Once again, it's to be held in Lumiose City's own Pokémon Gym. Rules Spoiler All regular Bulbagarden rules apply No godmodding. Keep content PG-13 Try not to ping-pong while your character is not in a battle. A little character development is fine, but be moderate. Be reasonable while your character is in a battle. It’s no fun if your character’s Pokémon somehow manage to miraculously dodge all attacks. Give your opponent a chance to react to your attacks when battling. Try not to say your attacks land immediately before your opponent can dodge or fight back. If your character is due to battle and you do not post for three days, it will result in disqualification. If you're going to be unable to post, let me know in advance so I can try to accommodate. Your character will be allowed to use three Pokémon in the tournament, with four moves each. They cannot change their moves during the tournament.
