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 if you are spectating the battle.

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

You may challenge the gyms in any order, however, you must defeat all of the level capped gyms before you are able to challenge the Level 100 Gyms.
