I know we cannot controll the mindset of the battlers but there should be some clauses atleast (i.e. For a person to rechallenge the gym they must not bring the same team they had previously used had they won, if they lost they can use what ever team they essentially want untill they win)
    But that is the point. To note whats used more than once. To note what continues to work efficiently and against what. To record consistent counters. To also note any changes Player A may decided to make with their team. But these stats are anonymous. All that is recorded is what pokemon, what move, and how well it did against its opponents. Who doesn't matter, how often does.

    I can see that working with a few tweaks here and there. Now this is a another couple thoughts. The pokefarm elite 4 and champion, and legendary use. After the tiers and such are set up how is the E4 going to work? Like it did before or with new rules? Will lengendaries be banned from regular gym battles as they were previously and only allowed in the E4/C? Or will they be allowed for all battles barring rules that gym leaders my have.

    For the lendaries defense by looking at the stats many of the legendaries introduced in this generation are right on par with some of the non-legendary pokemon introduced (i.e. Landorus, Thundurus, and Tornadus). That is just looking stat wise. There are alot of super powered pokemon and I'm very excited to get using them.

    Also consider this, multiple wins against a gym didn't really mean anything, the only way that you could win a shiny badge was to bring a team that was 100% bred and raised by you. Many people battle with pokemon that are obtained through events and such, or use a mix of pokemon they bred from one game and pokemon they brought over from others. The old system really ensured that those who one shiny badges were taking part in what this site is about.

    The reason legendaries are banned is because it does not promote breeding. That's what PF is really all about. Breeding, trading, and using those Pokemon in the gym system. Legendaries do not have a place in that system. A separate gym for Legendaries is a good idea, same for Uber battles.

    I wouldn't mind having a "Pure" cup, which is bred only, and a "Standard" Cup, which is anything OU goes.
    This could obviously be expanded to Ubers.

    I have no problem with legendaries in special cups and similar, but they should never be added to the gym system, which should be kept true to the forum's principles. Legendary hunting is 100% luck after a bit of preparation (using Synchronizers). Breeding is a lot more skill, with iterative improvements instead of a random reshuffling each time you SR.

    I actually thought this was a wonderful idea and it prompted me to make a competitive team. I only managed to breed half of the team prior to life throwing me an unplesant curve ball a few years back. I'm not a very "player vs player" type of person so I tend to avoid said situations naturally. But having a shiny gym badge actually advertise my breeding skills (so to speak) so it was enough motiviation.

    Husband surprised me with Pokémon Black and White this past weekend and the first thing on my mind was "I wanna breed again!" Granted I've been lazy about playing through either...

    i actually like this idea a lot, gives a lot of incentive to get battlers to breeding...to get their pokemon to battle. its the whole point of this thread and this site.

    Black and white are a re-invention of the old games, maybe the site can go through something like it as well.

    Im on the ball with all new gyms to challenge, but enough with the strict typing clause. there needs...to be SOMETHING...outside of the box. i liked what they did with the first gym, it completely threw me off how it was grass/water/fire all in one.

    how about clans and clan wars? given enough people it could become as to an added feature to the site

    or...a really crazy and detailed idea i just had...the whole site in a fan fiction, everyone has their parts, everyone helps to write it, going through drafts and all, though one person (that can change) has to post it and members post critques, pictures, or continue the story when it comes to their turn to post (which also helps with english grammar and writing btw) and pit members against each as part of the story. the one thing that made the forum BLOOM was the whole family feel to it, this might help it along.

    just ideas though, so feel free to say its not going to work either because this or that doesnt work out in reality

    How old is the logo? Cause if its old, I think we should get a new one, to signify that we're changing.
