    Rules of the ASB Gym League (Mostly Completed): http://www.smogon.com/forums/showpost.php?p=3883115&postcount=2

    After much discussion, we've come to to our final picks for type candidates:

    Fighting: Kaxtar and ToastTyrant13
    Fire: MK Ultra and danmantincan
    Water: Athenodoros and Darkamber8828
    Dark: Korski and DarkSlay
    Steel: C$FP and smashlloyd20
    Flying: Objection and jas61292

    Now, for the three open spots in Stage One, iimk, Athen and myself have decided on Electric, Ground and Poison to be the three wild-cards. The candidates are as follows:

    Poison: Engineer Pikachu and Terrador
    Ground: Its_A_Random and Deck Knight
    Electric: Son of Shadoo and Dogfish44

    To all those who did not make it: sorry, and better luck next round. To those lucky 18 who did, please get in contact with your opponent and agree on conditions for your decisive battle. Conditions include Items, Switch, Arena, Battle Size, Battle Style and anything else you can think. However, you must BOTH agree on these conditions; if you find yourselves at an impasse, contact Athen, iiMK of myself to resolve the issue and get the battle started. Once you two have decided everything, then IRC PM one of us and we will find you an able ref for your big battle.

    You can post congrats/match results in this thread, as well as general discussion/bitching posts. Good luck with your matches everyone!

    Oh, and Kax forgot to mention, but you do have to use your type in the battle. Just in case we let some idiot in there.

    Congrats for everyone who made it! But remember... the fact I didn't got a chance to get a gym for myself will be even more of a reason to ravage yours! :-)

    I'd prefer a ref with more experience on this one. Speaking of which, I'm happy to announce our new Gym committee:

    Kaxtar
    AThenodoros
    iiMKUltra

    Make sure you get a good lineup of refs for this, heh.

    If I'm absolutely required, I guess I'll be on it. However, I am severely behind with the raid work (6 ongoing raids, 2 on queue), so treat me as a last-ditch choice^^ Just wanted to make clear that I'm there if needed, though.

    2 recovers, 5 chills
    Switch = OK
    Items = Off

    Don't worry SOS. I'd say about half the time we spent discussing all of this was pointing out errors in usernames made by Kax. And he didn't even get Random's name right anyway.

    Try to in my case, but same principle.

    Edit: I would be willing to ref, but only if it's needed.

    So does anyone know if/when Stage Two will occur?
    Like if some poor sap had half of his gym team built and the other not even purchased, would he be able to finish it in time? This is purely hypothetical, of course. :3

    Umm, I'd guess three months at minimum. We need quite a while to perfect the gym system with our nine trial gyms before we take on the task of adding four more.
