    once again, amazing banners by Keiran :>

    Welcome to NUgget Bridge, a fresh challenge for the NU community. Five notable trainers from the Kanto region have gathered and are ready to accept your challenge. The challenge is to beat all 5 in order, and then hold on to your victorious crown for as long as is possible. The player to hold it for the longest period of time at the end of the month wins. All five are experienced and knowledgeable in NU, as well as representing a significant challenge to beat (not sure about FLCL though). The battles will be heated, and many hours of blood, sweat and tears will go into the preparation. So with the introduction out of the way, lets get started.

    Here are the five trainers you have to beat, in order:

    Rocket FLCL


    So who is this Team Rocket? Well, it could be you! The first trainer to beat all five trainers will become Team Rocket, leader of the NUgget Bridge. All future challengers must beat you to become Team Rocket. The ultimate aim of this is to hold onto Team Rocket for as long as possible.

    Rules:

    - If you are challenged as a member of the bridge, you must not john. Continued johning will lead to you being replaced. -
    - Bridge members can challenge the bridge, but get to skip themselves. If one of them becomes the Rocket, they will get replaced. -
    - All matches are to be played in the current NU tier, whatever that my be, with the standard clauses on. -
    - If you lose you don't have to go back to the beginning, but wait 48 hours before you challenge the trainer again. -
    - If you lose as Team Rocket, you will lose all your status and have to work your way back up again. -
    - You only get one challenge against the current Team Rocket member, lose and you have to head back to the Pokecenter to heal, and then work your way along the bridge again. -
    - To start your challenge, simply post in this thread saying you are going to play, and then report back with your wins and losses. Sharing logs and replays is encouraged. -
    - Be sure to announce on IRC in #neverused when you are about to play, so that people can enjoy some quality NU matches. -

    The last Rocket standing at the end of the round will receive their Nugget, i.e. possibly status in #neverused, a one time custom title or a larger avatar​

    This is a cool challenge, I'll think I'm going to try it out. It will take some time, as I don't have any teams at the moment. So, yeah, we'll see.
