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.

  • 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.
