    For this challenge, both the challengers and the trainers may use Shadow Tag Gothitelle The purpose of this project will be to test Gothitelle to see if it is broken or not, so using it will be encouraged! Gothitelle will be officially released August 9th.

    Welcome to the Spooky ManoRU! Six notable trainers from the Dream World have gathered and are ready to accept your challenge. The challenge is to beat all 6 trainers, 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 time period wins. All six are experienced and knowledgeable in RU, as well as representing a significant challenge to beat. 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 six trainers you have to beat:

    So who is the owner of the manor? Well, it could be you! The first trainer to beat all six trainers will become the owner! All future challengers must beat you to become the owner. The ultimate aim of this is to hold onto this spot for as long as possible.

    Rules:
    • If you are challenged as a member of the manor, you must not john. Continued johning will lead to you being replaced.
    • Manor members can challenge the manor, but get to skip themselves. If one of them becomes the owner, they will get replaced.
    • All matches are to be played in the current RU tier, whatever that my be, with the standard clauses on.
    • If you lose a total of 5 times without beating everyone, then you must restart your challenge.
    • If you lose, you have wait 48 hours before you challenge the trainer again. However, if the trainer agrees to a rematch before the 48 hour wait is up, you may face him again.
    • If you lose as the owner, you will be replaced, lose all your status, and have to beat everyone again.
    • You only get one challenge against the current owner; lose, and you have to head back to the PokeCenter to heal and then defeat all of the manor trainers 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. This will be good practice if you are looking to get on the rotating council!
    Good luck, and I will be keeping a record of players challenges here! You can contact these trainers on IRC in #rarelyused. Be sure to announce on IRC in #rarelyused when you are about to play, so that people can enjoy some quality RU matches.

    Since complete_legitimacy will be away from the 2nd until the 5th, and SilentVerse will be away from the 5th to the 11th, there will only be 5 trainers at certain periods of time. Nevertheless, the point is to test Shadow Tag Gothitelle and to have fun!

    this wasnt for manor but im going to post it anyway, basically with smart volt switching i was able to destroy C_L's entire team with gothielle, i honestly think this thing is insane, mainly because its best "counter" (spiritomb) is easy to set up on.

    Gothielle also seems to work well with volturn teams that spam momentum grabbing moves, with gothielle on your team you can volt switch out of opponents gothielle can trap and get quick KOs.

    from what ive seen so far, Ban

    Can I use Gothorita for this? Because in theory she can do the most dangerous stuff Gothitelle can do(set up on walls that can't really harm it to +6).

    The most ironic thing about this whole thread is that I just started doing this with my youtube friends about a week ago. LOL
