Pokéverse Gym Rules (Rules apply to both Leader and Challenger unless stated otherwise)

Gym Rules

* Always follow /rules
* Gym Leaders are allowed to request to challengers team to make it follows all gym rules.
* No revives & 1 potion max, no Full Restores
* 3 Pokemon max in Singles. 4 Pokemon max in Doubles.
* No duplicate Pokemon [Pokemon with the same Pokedex ID]
* No renamed Pokemon
* No Mega Rayquaza, Zacian, Zacian-Crowned, Zamazenta-Crowned, Mega Gengar, Eternatus, Primal Kyogre, Primal Groudon, and Calyrex Shadow Rider
* 1 Mega and Ultra Beast allowed at all times, 1 Legendary allowed only if the leader is using one too (Indicated by a green [L] next to the leader's name in /gyms.) [Mega legends & Ultra Necrozma count for both slots, Primal forms are banned]
* No Dragon Rage, Sonic Boom, Fishous Rend, Bolt Beak, or Destiny Bond
* No OHKO moves [Fissure, Guillotine, Horn Drill, and Sheer Cold]
* Gym Leaders & Challengers may use Mega Pokemon as long as its original typing fits the gym type. If the Pokemon is being Mega Evolved into the gym type then that is allowed too as long as the Mega evolution is done on the 1st turn it's thrown out (Ex. Mega Charizard X may be used in the Dragon gym as long as it's mega evolved on the first turn it's thrown out in battle; Mega Altaria can be used in the Flying Gym.)
* Challengers and Leaders must ALWAYS start the battle with the Pokemon thrown out first, however, a leader can say in chat they are switching to another because of form-related issues
* Battle rules must be used if a Challenger's Pokemon is underleveled, and may also be used if they are two levels over
* 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
* Ultra Necrozma It may only be used in Psychic, Ghost or Steel gyms (Leader only clause)
* 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
* Discussing a gym leader's team in public chats is not allowed
* Gym leaders may only use Arceus and Silvally in the normal gym. They aren't allowed to change type with respective plate and memory
* Sleep, Evasion, Dynamax, Item, Moody, Shadow Tag, Speed-Pass, and OHKO clauses are to be used in battle
* The combination of Prankster, Lagging tail, and Copycat are not allowed on a singular pokemon.
* Banned Shadow Tag, Arena Trap, Moody, and Gorilla Tactics
* No using FEAR tactics or variations of FEAR
* Gym Leaders may have 1 additional Pokemon in their team to swap in and out with other members as they see fit in their battles. (This is optional)
* Leaders who use the 1 additional Pokemon and have that Pokemon as a legendary are still required to have their /leader legend toggled ON for that Gym and challengers are allowed to bring a legend for that Gym regardless of whether the leader is using it or not for that battle.
* Gym Leaders MAY have a duplicate of the same Pokemon within their team as their extra as long as only 1 of them is in the battle at once to not break Species Clause. However, if a leader were to bring the wrong Pokemon they may not restart the battle to fix it.

Elite Four Rules
* Always follow /rules
* No revives or healing items
* 6v6 for Champion battles and Elite Four battles

* If your opponent disconnects unexpectedly during battle, wait a few minutes and do not heal or alter your Pokémon. 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 leader. You must train your own Pokémon with your own movesets and strategies. If you’ve purchased a Pokémon in a trade, you may still challenge a leader as long as it follows the previous rules. Elite Four Leaders may still disqualify you if they feel you’re using a Pokémon/team that’s not yours. For example, if you’re using the same team & strategy that an Elite Four Leader lost to the previous day, they may see fit to disqualify you.
* Regardless of leader, Challengers are allowed to use a legendary.

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
* All Omni Leaders are to give priority to regular Gym Leaders priority to battles if both are online when a battle request is sent.
* Gym Leaders may NOT ask for Gym Battles from others.

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 <gym> [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
