E4 Gym Rules/Regulations

After beating an E4 leader you gain a pokemon change point, this will allow you to change a SINGLE mon after beating an E4 gym.
You may continue battling the E4 leaders even after losing a battle (we understand its a 24h cooldown so your run doesn't end unless you request)
You may ask a staff member to reset your progress.

The Application process is similar to normal gyms, these E4 apps require mandatory testing.
Leaders must have half of the team following each typing (3/3 if its a 6 poke format)
Limit of 3 Leaders (not including omni) per E4 gym.
Champion is swapped to whoever defeats the current champion.
Champion will be taken if Leader rules are not upheld, or are inactive for 7+ days
