Database League gym leader applications. 1 spot left. (read requirments)

16 votes

With the departure of Enoch, we need one more leader


Requirments

Currently we have 2 OU, 1 OU monotype, 2 UU, 1 Ubers and 1 VGC doubles.
The last thing we want is another OU gym leader or another UU ect. We want variety so I will be accepting a gym leader only into the following tiers: RU, NU and LC. If you are not experienced in these tiers don't bother applying.

To apply you will need to answer on this post following this template:

Name and chosen Showdown alt:
Chosen tier:
Replays: insert 3 quality replays here. This does not mean sweeping a player using Shell Smash Cloyster. Show skill in the replay otherwise just don't bother using it
Ladder ranking: Obviously different tiers varey on what is impressive or not but it is something to go by. Don't bother using an old ladder ranking, I want a current one please.

You have until the 1st of November to perfect your skills and get good replays + ladder ranking. You do not have to answer with the replays and ladder ranking straight away. Give yourself time to get good replays / good ladder ranking.

D:
We're all stuffed ;~;
I must assume that applications are off until Gen 6 is complete, since play styles and game changing mechanics could change a lot. We shouldn't base our league on someones skill of their skill could be useless in a few days.
Applications are still ongoing however the league will not be started until gen 6 has steady tiers. If you want to apply try gen 5.
Sorry guys. I'm actually resigning from trying out for the NU spot. I have a lot of personal projects I should be working on, like my manga, comics, stories, Halloween decorating, and most of all, spending more time with my family. Racing against the ladder won't get any of those things done. Also, I tried laddering two nights ago and was sorely reminded how out of practice I am. Being off of the ladder for almost a month can do that.
KoD, I'm rooting for ya.
Also, whoever upvoted my answer, please remove the upvote before I hide my answer.
ima apply for lc soon

Haiii! Crappy and Unnatractive form below!

Read at your own risk. You have been warned >:D

Showdown name: Sempiternus/Knightofdragon (sempi is main one now :3)
Chosen Tier: NU or LC, not sure yet
Replays:
Vs Endrio, NU
VS Haba1, NU
Vs Metal Sonic, NU
All 3 quality opponents in the top 500 on the old Gen 5 NU ladder, or had a ladder rating high enough to be comfortably in it.
4th one that I actually think is my best.
^ A game filled with predictions and mind games. A few key predicts even though i was being outpredicted more than he was gave me the win :P

Kill all sand teams! LC
Vs Born LC
In regards to the one against Born, while I wasn't able to win it was an extremely close match at 1-0, and definitely winnable :P And considering his ladder rating was enough to make him the 5th on the LC Ladder... I think it's a decent enough replay :P

Ladder Ranking before the reset
NU

1877 (Sempi)
1704 (KoD).
1716 (KoDAlt124)
LC
1544 (Sempi)
1471 (KoDAlt124)

Ladder Ranking After Reset
NU

1886(Sempi) (Note, this is equivalent to number 17 on the NU ladder)
enter image description here

Due to alot of exams (and events >.>) this is basically my final thing.

I suxaphone at battling. Nuff said?

All those two replays tell me is that Drifblim is cheap, and you should not use 3 grass types on an NU sun team :P
Plz Drifblim is awesome :P kills everything lategame <3
And he obviously had some success with it :P

Me apply for RU. :P

Since RU doesn't get too much love, I decided to apply to this tier, although I suck at battling, I'm trying my hardest. I'll fill out some info, more to be added later.

Showdown name: HaxTheGreat

Replays:
Replay #1 (Still trying to ladder)
Replay #2 (Meh, I'll bring more)
Replay #3 (I'm working my hardest)

Ladder:
1660

I would've done better, but I had loads of problems and work shoved into my face.

Other: http://pokemonshowdown.com/replay/gen5ru-58723279

A bit about the battle part of me:

I am the kind of person who makes a lot of mistakes. I always learn from them, however, and get a lot better. That is what helps me win battles.

NOTE

Since the announcement hasn't arrived yet, I might be messing with the ladder a bit, but it might not count. I'll post if it has any positive changes.

Yay RU. XD
Lol, I think you're automatically gonna get the spot if no one else applies.
Not being on the ladder means your provisional is over 100 :P
So you havn't played enough matches :P
