    A few months of training... hours upon hours of dedication... and it all comes down to this...

    Alright! No more dramatics! We came here prepared for a battle, and that's exactly wha'ts going to help you! My Pokemon and I accept your challenge! May the best Ice-type trainer win!

    Brace yourselves, everyone. It's about to get real cold in here... (and punny. Oh. So. Punny. Don't you mean it snow or never?)

    Are we allowed to invoke Turn order = Coin? I would like to do that if possible.

    I thought everyone could be trusted to do all of these challenges by themselves. Honestly.

    So, for Normal-Gym, and for that matter, anyone else trying to put up a gym now:
    When I get back from my holiday, I'm going to actually check out these matches and the competitors. I was going away when I okay'd Yarnus, so I just assumed he checked everything, but apparently not. This means that everyone should continue matches they have already started, but other people should just stay put: you certainly don't need a best of three formats counter farm like is being suggested now. It will end up a round-robin or small knockout tournament depending on numbers, for each gym. Just wait until I get back and can do it properly on IRC.

    Until then, it would help if anyone interested in a gym could PM me, even if they have before, or already have, a match up. You have until ~Wednesday to do so.

    That will be all.

    Okay, so:

    Maxim, Yarnus and SimonSays will all face off for the Normal gym. There will be three singles matches in a format that each pair will decide on. Whoever wins both matches gets the gym. If everyone wins one match, I'll proceed from there depending on the three matches: most likely picking two players to play a final if one player clearly does worse than the other two. But that's tbc.

    So to you three: contact the other two and organise a format and arena for your match, then post for a ref here and get battling. Hopefully this won't take too long.

    "Ah yes, as for you Yarnus, the only one that will lose is yourself. You will soon find folly in your attempt at winning this gym. I will give it everything I've got, analyze every move you can possibly make, and you will not win unless you can defeat every strategy I can muster. Prepare to lose Yarnus!"

    Yeah so I'm a gym committee dude now

    FIRST ORDER OF BUSINESS: Gyms closing.

    C$FP has quit ASB. Therefore his Steel gym will be closed and the position of Steel Gym Leader made vacant. Should he return he will be allowed to reclaim his gym. If an incumbent has opened their own Steel Gym, CMFP will have the right of battling this user for leadership.

    Kaxtar has been extremely inactive for a long period of time. His Fighting Gym will be closed and his position of Gym Leader made vacant. Should he return to ASB he will have to apply to be a Gym Leader once again, proving his worth and competing against any competing Fighting Gym hopefuls.

    Lou has been inactive since July due to getting shot. He returned for a month and reclaimed his gym position, but ultimately disappeared again leaving his Gym empty and his challengers hanging. Should he return to ASB once more, he WILL NOT have the right to reopen his gym, but must reapply for the position through the selection process. This decision has been made due to the growing strength of potential Dark Leader candidates and Lou's demonstrable unreliability.

    Have a nice day~

    Relinquishing my hold on the fire gym.

    I strongly recommend that e_m gets the badge because I had no chance of winning that match. If necessary I can suicide in that battle with sub 15x2 comboes.

    Reffing Simon vs Maxim.

    Hi there, I'm a Gym Committee Member as well (MK_Ultra/Texas Cloverleaf/Glacier Knight).

    Since Orcinus has Resigned, the Fire Gym is now closed. Elevator_Music has stated above and via IRC that he will deny the Fire Badge, and will not accept it, so the battle will just be closed as it is.

    Recap of Gym Updates:

    -Texas Cloverleaf is the Dragon Gym Leader (Gym will open after Arena testing, etc.)
    -Ice Qualifiers are underway
    -Normal Qualifiers are underway (they require refs though)
    -Steel, Fighting, Dark, and Fire gyms are offically closed (If you are interested in filling in the position, I suggest you start training)
    -Grass is the only type left that does not have a gym/gym just got closed down/qualifiers have not begun. If you are interested, I suggest you begin training.
