• No renamed Pokémon
• 1 Ultra Beast allowed

• Pokemon must be level locked at all times
• No Dragon Rage or Sonic Boom
• The following clauses must be followed: Bag, OHKO, Sleep, Moody, Baton Pass,
Evasion, Item and Endless Battle. For more info visit smogon.com/bw/banlist
• Gym leaders may use Pokemon whose mega forms typing align with their original
typing, however, they must mega within the first turn of swapping the Pokemon
out. [using Mega Altaria in Fairy is allowed for example, but using it in Flying
is not]
• No using Dynamax Pokemon
• Challengers must ALWAYS start the battle with the Pokemon thrown out first
• Battle rules must be used of a Challenger's Pokemon is underleveled, and may
also be used if they are two levels over
• If a Challenger’s Pokemon levels up during a gym battle you may decide if it
qualifies as a win or not, but you must be consistent with this choice
• If your opponent disconnects unexpectedly during battle, wait a few minutes
and do not heal or alter your Pokemon. If they rejoin, resume the battle from
where you were
• Challengers MAY NOT "borrow" another person's team for the sole purpose of
defeating a gym. You must train your own Pokemon with your own movesets and
strategies. If you’ve purchased a pokemon in a trade you may still challenge a
gym as long as it follows the previous rules. Gym Leaders may still disqualify
you if they feel you’re using a Pokemon/team that’s not yours. For example if
you’re using the same team & strategy that a Gym Leader lost to the previous
day, they may see fit to disqualify you
• You may not disclose any other gym leader's teams nor direct players towards
flaws or counters
•Zacian (Both forms), Zamazenta Crowned Form (Bugged), Dracovish, Calyrex Shadow Rider, Calyrex Ice Rider, Spectrier, and Galarian Darmanitan Banned


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
• You’re only allowed to reject a Challenger with good reason, ask a staff
member if you're unsure. If you apply for a Gym Leader position, you’re
responsible for accepting battles. You may not frequently AFK as it detracts
from everyone's experience
• Upon two weeks of inactivity your Gym Leader status will be revoked. If staff
are notified beforehand an extra two weeks of grace period may be granted
• 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 [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
