Gym Leader Game

Aug 21, 2022
Reaction score
I wanna try something new here. Basically, the idea of this game is to theorize yourself as a gym leader. You may discuss your team (required), the theme, puzzle, and even sets if you wish.

You must use a random number generator to choose 1-18 (Google has one built in). You will use the type corresponding to that number (e.g. 7 = Fighting). You may choose what number gym leader you are, however, there is a catch to this: If someone has already picked that position, you must choose a different position. Also, you cannt have the same type as someone else. This resets every eight posts.

Some other suggestions:
  • Don't worry about being competitive, we want these to look like realistic gyms.
  • You dont really need to use RNG, its just a suggestion to spike things up. (You are, however, required to adhere to the eight-post rule)
  • Avoid more than two monotype mons.
  • Stick with giving a Badge and a TM once defeated. It does not need to be an existing TM.

I'll start:

RNG gave me Fire, and I'll take the seventh place. In the gym, there are four platforms that you must cross. Each platform is layered with hot coals that cannot be walked on. The player must go down to a "brig" (there is one under each platofrm, slightly bigger in area than each platform) and walk a path through the brig, then come back up. The path you walked will appear on the coals, as the tiles you traversed across will be extinguished. There may be larger rocks on platforms that you cannot walk across. After getting past the fourht platform, you face me:

I will lead with:

Talonflame Lv. 45
Item: None
Ability: Gale WIngs
Moves: Flare Blitz, Fly, Roost, Swords Dance


Simisear (cause I can) Lv. 45
Item: Wiki Berry
Ability: Gluttony
Moves: Nasty Plot, Flame Burst, U-Turn, Endeavor

Chandelure Lv. 46
Item: Ghost Gem
Ability: Flame Body
Moves: Flamethrower, Hex, Energy Ball, Psychic

Infernape Lv. 47
Item: Muscle Band
Ability: Iron FIst
Moves: Flare Blitz, Mach Punch, Power Up Punch, Poison Jab

Once I am defeated, I will give you the Lava Badge, which allows you to be obeyed by any Pokemon up to Lv. 80. I will give you the TM for Flare Blitz.

(So the person below me can do anything except specialize in Fire and be the seventh leader).
Sounds funny:
Number 9 (Ghost i think)

Name: Noc (from nocte(l) : (e)night)

He is an oldschool ghost train operator from the Sinnoh-Region. He is a little bit lazy and forgets often to let the children out of the train, but thats a legend. He is in besides that so lazy, that his Gym Puzzle is to repair the railways but you have to fight Yamasks and Sinisteas.

RNG gave me Water and I guess I'll take the 8th gym slot. My gym puzzle would be a complex sewer system which you would have to sail through, facing trainers and wild Pokemon alike until you reach the center where you face me. (Note: All of my Pokemon are Lvl. 47-50) (2nd Note: This battle would be a doubles battle)
