    Default Icicle Gym Rules

    Pokéfarm League Rules and Regulations


    How to Request the Gym Leader for a Battle

    Go to your Control Panel (User CP) located at the upper left hand of the page. Scroll down the list and select Group Membership. Then, select *insert Gym name* Gym - Join Group and send your application to join the group.


    Once finished, the Gym Leader will contact you within 1-3 days via Private Messaging (PM), unless specified otherwise. You may access your Private Messages from your Control Panel as well. The message will contain an inquiry as to when you will be able to conduct a battle with the Gym Leader.

    Please respond to the inquiry with adequate information.

    Once a schedule has been set, be punctual. If you have to miss the appointment for some reason, please inform the Gym Leader in advance.





    Rules for Challengers


    The Challenger's team will be composed of 6 Pokémon. Nothing more, nothing less.

    League matches will be at Level 50 Single Battle format.

    Voice Chat must be turned OFF during battle.

    Legendary Pokémon and Übers are NOT permitted in battle.

    Duplicates or more of the same Pokémon are NOT permitted in the Challenger's team.

    The Pokémon in the Challenger's team are NOT permitted to hold same items.

    The Challenger may switch out their Pokémon in battle as desired.



    Neither Hacked or Cloned Pokémon are NOT permitted.
    After the battle, ALL challengers are to remain online. The gym leader will request a trade to verify pokemon immediately. The Challenger must comply or a Gym Badge will not be granted. Disregard of this rule may result to further consequences.

    PokéFarm is devoted to breeding exceptional Pokémon and not masterful hacking. The Gym System's purpose is for the Challengers to display their skills and strategies as a Trainer, and not as a cheater. Cheating is an unacceptable way to victory and it will not be tolerated here. Hackers will additionally be labeled with the Hacker's symbol.



    Tardy Policy: Gym Leaders are to report to Moderators and/or Administrators challengers who are late/absent for Gym battles, if no valid AND reasonable excuse is available. Tardiness and/or absences will be assigned 15 infraction points that will last 30 days. This also means that the Challenger may not request a challenge until the infraction has expired. Further violations may lead to further punishments. It is upon the Gym Leader's discretion if the Challenger is late or not.

    ~Icicle Gym conciders 20min late~


    In case of WiFi connection errors, the Challenger must wait 1 week before a do-over regardless of whose connection disrupted the match.

    ~After three WiFi connection attempts, the gym leader can call off the battle. You must use the same team if a battle is restarted, but you can use different moves.~


    If the first battle ends in defeat for the Challenger, he/she must wait one week before requesting another challenge from the Gym Leader.

    For any further losses, the Challenger will have to win a match against a the Gym Leader's Assistant (if any) or a selected member that has won the Gym Leader's Badge previously before challenging the Gym Leader once again.


    There is no Gym Assistant at this time, so just keep challenging the leader.

    Disregarding and disobeying any of the rules will result in an automatic loss for the Challenger, confiscation of Badges (if any), and permanent suspension from any other League events.






    Pokéfarm Clauses



    Mandatory Clauses
    (All clauses are used in Icicle Gym)



    Species Clause

    It is NOT permitted to have two or more of the exact same Pokémon in a team.

    Pokémon from the same Family are however permitted (i.e. Pichu, Pikachu, and Raichu).



    Duplicate Item Clause

    No two Pokémon in the team may carry the same item.




    Optional Clauses
    (All clauses are used in Icicle Gym)


    Evasion Clause

    Moves that directly increase evasion (such as Double Team and Minimize) are NOT permitted in battle.

    Taking advantage of abilities such as Sand Veil and Snow Cloak are permitted. They are abilities, and do not directly affect evasion status.



    Self-K.O. Clause

    When both parties are down the last Pokémon, Self-K.O. moves (such as Explosion, Destiny Bond, Perish Song, Memento, etc.) will cause an automatic loss for its user.

    Abilities such as Aftermath do not count since they are abilities and not moves.



    Sleep Clause

    It is NOT permitted that the status Sleep (SLP) be applied to more than one of the opponent's Pokémon at a time. The opponent's currently sleeping Pokémon must first awaken or get knocked out before Sleep may be cast on the opponent's Pokémon once again.

    Applying the status Sleep while using random-selection moves (such as Assist, Metronome, Sleep Talk, etc.) does NOT violate this clause.

    The move Yawn (unless used with moves such as Assist, Metronome, Sleep Talk, etc.) violates this clause.

    Self-inflicted Sleep (such as Rest) does NOT count in this clause, as it is voluntarily inflicted by the user and not by the opponent.

    If ability-inflicted Sleep (such as Effect Spore, etc.) is already in effect, applying Sleep to another Pokémon violates this clause.




    One-hit KO (O.H.K.O.) Clause

    One-hit K.O. moves (such as Fissure, Guillotine, Horn Drill, Sheer Cold, etc.) are NOT permitted, as they hugely rely on chance and not skill.






    Rules for Gym Leaders


    The Gym Leader's team will be composed of 6 Pokémon. Nothing more, nothing less.

    League matches will be at Level 50 Single Battle format.

    Voice Chat must be turned OFF during battle.

    Legendary Pokémon and Übers are NOT permitted in battle.


    The Gym Leader's team has to comply with the amended Three-and-three Rule*, which states that:

    The Gym Leader's party members must match the Gym's types.

    The Gym Leader's team must be composed of 3 of each type.

    Dual/Mixed types are permitted.

    If a Dual-type Pokémon's types match BOTH the Gym's types, the Gym Leader gains a free slot with for any Pokémon desired even if it is entirely out of the Gym's typing.

    Example:

    Normal/Psychic Gym

    Linoone - Normal
    Blissey - Normal
    Alakazam - Psychic
    Bronzong - Psychic/Steel
    Girafarig - Normal/Psychic >>> Dual-typing matches both of Gym's; opens 1 slot
    Qwilfish - Water/Poison >>> Slot opened because of Girafarig


    Duplicates or more of the same Pokémon are NOT permitted in the Gym Leader's team.

    The Pokémon in the Gym Leader's team are NOT permitted to hold same items.

    Gym Leaders may switch out their Pokémon in battle as desired.

    The Gym Leader may only award a Badge when the Challenger wins a battle fairly.

    Gym Leaders' Assistants are NOT to award any Badges. Badges must be claimed from the Gym Leader only. In the case that the Gym Leader fails to attend to duties for more than two weeks, a forced resignation will be in order. The Gym Leader's Assistant will then most likely take over the Gym.

    Default Mandatory Trade Rule

    After a battle, remain on WiFi and start a trade.
    I will accept your trade, and verify you followed all of the rules.
    This will not take more then two minutes.

    If you lose the battle and do not open a trade, you will be banned from the Icicle Gym for two weeks.

    If you win the battle and do not open a trade, you will not receive the badge and you will be banned from the Icicle Gym for two weeks. You will also have to defeat the gym leader again to earn the badge.

    Default Shiny Badge Rule

    In order to earn the shiny badge, all pokemon must be hatched by one OT.

    No wild pokemon.

    If you do your breeding on a different Diamond/Pearl game than the one you do your battling with, that is fine, but you must open a trade immediately after the battle with the game that has done the breeding and there should be a pokemon hatched visible to prove so. Before the battle, give me the FC of your other game where the pokemon were hatched.

    Pal Parked pokemon...If you bred them on a previous generation pokemon game, you should be able to breed them again on Diamond/Pearl. The only thing you would lose would be Move Tutor moves. However if this is the case I will listen to your arguments as to why that pokemon was not bred after being pal-parked.
