HOW TO BE & BECOME A GYM LEADER
Our #1 goal in the NPC League Discord server is to create a good place for anyone to come and enjoy Pokemon battles. This includes new and experienced trainers, and Gym Leaders alike.
We want our Gym Leaders to represent our server well and function as role models for the rest of the server's members. We want Gym Leaders of a gradient of skill levels, to make it suitable for Pokemon Trainers across all skill levels.
Monotype team rules:
A Gym Leader has to have a monotype team. This means that all Pokemon has to be part-type your Gym Leader type. For example, if you aspire to become a Fairy type Gym Leader, like I am, all your Pokemon will need to be part Fairy type.
Upon request, we are now allowing a Gym Leader to have 1 "wildcard" per team. This means that 1 of your 6 Pokemon on your team can be a Pokemon of any choice (so long it is within our ruleset). To continue our example, I as a Fairy type Gym Leader am allowed to have these Pokemon on my monotype Fairy team:
Please be aware:
We want to get to know our future Gym Leaders a little before we consider them suited for the Gym Leader role.
We have built the server so that the Gym Leaders have the ability to open and close their gym as they like. Rule #5 states the following: Do not ask Gym Leaders when their Gyms will be open. This is to prevent any pressure for a Gym Leader to open at other times than when they want to enjoy some Pokemon battles. If you are able to open your Gym on average once a week or more, that is very acceptable.
The key qualities of a Gym Leader is a person who:
- Have a good understanding of competitive battles in Pokemon.
- Have been a member for long enough for the community to know who you are.
- Is polite and respectful toward other members and can act as a good role model for other members.
Being recommended by other members is usually wanted.
What comes next? I recommend:
- Earn more badges
- Be polite and have a good time in the server(s).
- Be helpful toward other members in #help
I wish you a good day and hope to see you around in our chats.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
