(Trent here) Okay, here is how this is going to work. You have to win both these challenges to get the Beacon Badge. You need to beat Ninja and Trent. So you need to beat Ninja 4 times and Trent once. To make things fair, if you beat one, losing to the other doesn't mean you have to rebeat the first one you beat. And you can challenge us on the same day!
(Ninja here) Basically you face Ninja first. If you lose, you face Ninja tomorrow. If you win, you face Trent. Contact trachy to face him. If you lose to Trent, you face Trent tomorrow. If you beat Trent, you advance!
Showdown and Pokemon Online are both permitted in this gym. If you have both, the challenger may decide the simulator of choice.
So, think you got game? You have done well to get this far. But what
if your skills were put even further to the test? What if you went
into a battle, not even knowing your team? What if a random team of
Pokemon were given to you and you were forced to use them? Challenge Cup time!
All Clauses, including Challenge Cup.
Battles are best of 7.
No switching during the battle. Spice things up.
Moves banned: Stealth Rock, Toxic Spikes, Spikes.
While somewhat like Challenge Cup, what I'll be doing is using the randint feature on a calculator to select six numbers. These numbers will correspond to a PokeDex number. The six numbers chosen will be the team the challenger is given. They can then do whatever they want to the Pokemon.
Then, a number between one and seventeen will be selected by the challenger. I have 17 premade teams (none of them unfair, using a mix of tiers) and the number chosen will correspond to the team I will use.
You get one redo, to get a new team. Careful, it might end up being worse!
If you get a Pokemon with multiple forms, you get to choose which form to use.
You can lead with whatever of the Pokemon you got you want.
While the Pokemon you get is important, perhaps even more important is the team you choose for me to use. Some of them are pretty easy, while a couple use more powerful Pokemon!
