I've been thinking (again? [a sigh of trouble for some]) about the Database League and there are pretty tough members that know what they're doing. I have com to the conclusion of this: a trail or beginner's league, a "watered down" version of the actual DB League. Speaks for itself, but doesn't speak for all of it.
Here's what I mean:
-Having a simple and more beatable league for newcomers and ill-experienced people who want to participate without being completely decimated.
-Leaders here at this minor league mirror styles, concepts and what's left from Leader's from the actual DBL (DataBase League). Each Leader should have at least 2 sets of 6 pokemon, one preset and one custom(izable).
-The preset team consists of one core duo and no high(er) ranked pokemon (e.g. 5 UU pokemon and one OU Pokemon). Presets typically have a mix of 2nd & 3rd evolved, like Magneton and Crobat on a team, and is used the first attempt of a challenger, baby evolutions are not permitted. If the challenger fails to beat all the preset teams of the League he/she needs to start over. If the challenger succeeds to beat all the preset teams of the League he/she gets the option to move on the custom teams.
-The custom team can have any set(s) of Pokemon. Custom teams should be harder to beat, but not as hard as the leaders in the DBL. Custom teams should have 6 fully evolved Pokemon, with some exceptions. Custom teams should also have the option of having one, I repeat one, higher ranked Pokemon. It's because it adds a little more difficulty and like most gym leaders (if you're not prepared for them) have at least one tough pokemon.
This rivision will be the last hurrah for this. For the page, I will take full responsibility for it, including biulding the page.
Basics outline (AKA the most general stuff and may change/removed/added to):
--12-24 person public tourney, 6-10 person private tourney, go through competition seeing who's who, review battles offsite: learn from them, learn from other people, # come back with more booh ya, share with friends, give advice or gloat, # come back with know how, spectate people with booh ya and know how, beat them with even more booh ya and know how and become the champ in a future tourney, cycle through once again.
Public: anyone can join
Private: invite only
--main tournament-- victor/champion #1 semifinalist loser #2
--quarterfinalists-- quarterfinals victor #3 quarterfinals loser #4
--chump off/remainder of the tourney-- chump off victor # 5
--# everyone else-- 6th place/last place
It is ultimately Pokemaster's decision, and I'll be the one to get it started, keep it maintained, and improve it when the time comes. This is something that I would do regularly. I am open to improvements and criticism about this.
