  • Always follow /rules!
The following is a list of rules both the Gym Leader and the Challenger must follow:

General Rules:
• The Gym Leader and Challengers Pokemon MUST be set to level 100.
• If a Challenger or Gym Leader suddenly disconnects from battle, wait a maximum of 5 minutes and DO NOT alter or heal your pokemon. If they rejoin resume the battle. However, if the Challenger or Gym Leader fails to win, the opposing player gains the win.
• If a Challenger breaks another Gym Rule after a Gym Battle has already been restarted due to the previous rule break, the Gym Leader may disqualify the Challenger and the Gym Leader will gain the win. (Does NOT include crashes/disconnects)
• As PokeSplash uses the National Dex Meta for its Gym System, you may not use any abilities, pokemon, or items listed on the National Dex ban list. (https://www.smogon.com/dex/ss/formats/national-dex/)
• 1 Mega Pokemon allowed.
• 1 Ultra Beast allowed.
• 1 Legendary allowed.

Challenger-only rules:
• Challengers must ALWAYS start the Gym Battle with their Pokemon thrown out first.
• Challengers MAY NOT "borrow" another player's pokemon/team for the sole purpose to defeat a gym. You are required to train your own Pokemon, and create your own movesets and strategies. If you've purchased a Pokemon, you may still challenge the gym as long as it follows the rest of the Gym Rules. However, a Gym Leader may disqualify you if they feel that you are not using your own Pokemon/Team.
• Challengers MAY NOT disclose a Gym Leader's team or strategies to beat the Gym Leader with another player. Doing so will result in a Gym Ban.
• Please be appropriate/nice to Gym leaders. It will result in a Gym Ban if you are continuously rude/inappropriate to the Gym Leader.

Gym Leader Only Rules:
• Gym Leaders may only use Silvally in Normal Gym as its base type is Normal. Silvally's type changes based on its held item meaning it no longer matches said gym type.
• Gym Leaders may only use Pokemon whose original form matches their Gym type. For example, Charizard X cannot be used in Dragon Gym as its base typing fails to match the gym type. However, you may use a Pokemon that changes away from the gym typing. So Charizard X is allowed in Flying Gym even though it loses its Flying type upon Mega.

The following clauses are used in Gym Battles:
• Bag Clause: You may not use items from their bag. (ex. Potions, Revives, or X-items)
• Item Clause: You may not use two of the same item on your Team at the same time.
• Sleep Clause: You may not sleep more than 1 of the opposing battler's pokemon.
• Evasion Clause: You may not use moves to increase evasion stats.
• Shadow Tag Clause: You may not use the move, Shadow Tag.
• Species Clause: You may not use duplicate Pokemon. (Pokemon with the same ID in the PokeDex)
• Baton Pass Clause: You may not use the move, Baton Pass.
• Moody Clause: You may not use the ability, Moody.

The following moves and abilities are banned in Gym Battles:
• OHKO moves: Fissure, Guillotine, Horn Drill, or Sheer Cold.
• Moves: Dragon Rage, Sonic Boom, Destiny Bond, Assist, or Baton Pass.
• Ability: Shadow Tag, or Arena Tag.

The following strategies are banned in Gym Battles:
• No PP stalling or any variation of PP stalling.
• No FEAR tactics or any variation of FEAR.
• A combination of Prankster, Lagging tail, and Copycat on a Pokemon.

3v3 Gym Rules:
• 3 Pokemon max
• 1 Legend allowed max.
• 1 Ultra Beast allowed max.
• As Pokesplash uses the National Dex Meta for its Gym System, you may not use any abilities, pokemon, or items listed on the National Dex ban list. (https://www.smogon.com/dex/ss/formats/national-dex/)

4v4 Gym Rules:
• 4 Pokemon max.
• Must be played in Doubles format.

Gym Leader guidelines:
• Always be nice and welcoming to Challengers.
• It is highly recommended to fully train your Pokemon's EVs, IVs, and Moves.
• You are only allowed to reject a Challenger with a good reason. If you are unsure you can DM any regular staff or Gym Staff member.
• If you apply for a Gym Leader position and are accepted, you are responsible for accepting battles. You may NOT frequently AFK as it detracts from everyone's experience.
• Upon two weeks of inactivity, your Gym Leader position will be revoked. If a Gym Staff member is notified beforehand, an extra 2 weeks may be granted.
• If you want to discuss a Gym Leader's application, please be constructive and only comment on their Pokemon team. Let their character and behavior be judged by Gym Staff members.

Gym Leader commands:
• /leader accept: Accepts the most recent battle request.
• /leader deny: Denies the most recent battle request.
• /leader give: Gives the most recent opponent their badge.
• /leader won: Marks most recent battle as a win for the Leader.
