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 (confirm): Gives the most recent opponent their badge.
• /leader won (confirm): Marks most recent battle as a win for the Leader.
• /leader stats: View your win/loss ratio for any gyms you are currently leader of.
• /gl or /gymleaderchat: A chat used to communicate exclusively with other Gym Leaders and Staff.
• /gymrewards leader: Shows an array of rewards earned at certain Battles milestones.
