Leader specific rules:
-Ultra Necrozma may only be used in Psychic or Dragon gyms
-Arceus and Silvally may only be used in Normal gym and may not change type with their respective plates/memories
-You may only use pokemon that align with your gym type prior to the battle (pokemon that mega evolve into your gym's type must be mega evolved as soon as it enters battle)

Misc Rules:
Challengers must throw out their starting pokemon before the leader
Challengers and Leaders must ALWAYS start the battle with the pokemon they threw out first
-In double battles challengers are expected to throw out their first two pokemon
Challengers may not "borrow" another player's team for the purpose of defeating a gym. You must train your own pokemon and use your own movesets/strategies.
Gym leaders may disqualify a challenger if they feel you are using a team/strategy that is not yours. (For example, using the same team and strategy that a gym leader lost to the previous day, they may feel fit to disqualify you)
Users are not allowed to discuss leader's teams or how to beat the gym teams, including pokemon details
After restarting a battle once, if the challenger breaks another gym rule, the leader may disqualify the challenger and the match will count as a win for the leader (see below for crashes/disconnects)
If your opponent disconnects unexpectedly during battle, wait a few minutes and do not alter your pokemon. If they rejoin, resume the battle from where you were. You may restart the battle once if necessary.
If the challenger purposely chooses to leave the battle for any reason, the leader may decide to disqualify the challenger and claim the win for themself
You may not farm for gym rewards (Leader and Challenger)

Gym Leader Guidelines:
Always be nice and welcoming to Challengers of your gym
It’s highly recommended that your team is fully IV and EV trained
If you apply for gym leader you are responsible for accepting battles. You may not frequently afk and you may not reject challengers without good reason. Ask a staff member if you are unsure.
All non-omni leaders have priority for battle requests. If you need someone to take a battle for you, you may ask in /gl
Upon two weeks of inactivity, your Gym Leader status will be revoked. Please talk to a staff member if you wish to have that time extended
If you want to discuss a Gym Leader's application, please be constructive and only comment on their Pokemon team. Let character and behavior be determined by staff

Gym Leader Commands:
/leader accept - accepts the most recent battle request
/leader deny - denies the most recent battle request
/leader give - gives your most recent opponent their badge
/leader won - marks the most recent battle as a win (to track your win/loss stats)
/leader legend <gym> [true/false] - indicates whether or not your party contains a legendary in /gyms
/leader stats - view your win/loss ratio for each gym you're a leader of
/gl - chat exclusive to gym leaders, acts similar to /g and /l
/glr - gym leader rewards
