Unofficial GTS+ Pokemon League


Hey everyone! I've become fairly inactive since the original GTS+PL was disbanded, and there are no plans for it to be restarted. I personally loved the idea of having user-owned Gyms within the GTS+ community, but for various reasons it didn't work out.

So now I'm coming to the Battles Forum to look for other users that are interested in starting an (Unofficial) GTS+ Pokemon League!

For those of you unfamiliar with the original GTS+PL, this is how GTS+ ran the league, to my memory
  • Potential for one Gym of each type: effectively a total number of 18 possible Gyms
  • Each Gym had a Gym Leader (a user with that position), and sometimes trainers (such as the swimmers in Cerulean Gym, testing the trainer before they got to Misty)
  • Each Gym Leader had a public roster of 10 Pokemon (85% of which rounded up had to be that Gym's type; otherwise had to know a move of that Gym's type) from which they could choose to battle the challenger
  • Each Gym had their own battle format (3x3 singles, 4x4 singles, 6x6 doubles, etc.), which the challenger could choose from
  • If the challenger lost along the way to beating the Gym Leader, they would have to resubmit a challenge application and rechallenge the Gym from the beginning
  • However if they won, they were given prizes: that Gym's Badge, and a Pokemon (usually GameSharked/Action Replayed into the Gym Leader's game) that was often shiny, had perfect IVs, etc.
Like I mentioned before, I'm looking for other users interested in starting something similar, albeit this GTS+PL wouldn't be sanctioned by GTS+ itself. For those interested in the initial specifics of what I was thinking, you can read through this.

Nothing in this post is by any means final, so if you think have any ideas that could improve on the potential GTS+PL, please say so! And if you're interested in participating in the GTS+PL, whether as a challenger or a potential Gym Leader, PLEASE say so! If we get enough people interested we can start a Pokemon League and have a bit of fun, friendly competition between players!

Thanks to all for reading!

Seems interesting. I'm good in the Mixed OU field, so I could become Gym Leader. But I'm fine with just being a challenger.

How much attention do you think this will get?

Honestly, I'm not sure. After a few weeks we'll see how many are interested and gauge if it's worth investing our time in or not. I'll keep you posted smile.gif

Platinum Team



I've got an Electric team that I would gladly use. Assuming this gets enough interest we could set up a reddit (probably easier to check than here) that I could help administrate.

Or we could just post here, but Reddit seems better in that there can be multiple administrators who can set up pinned posts.

I used to be Cyogre, ILoveTaillowHesCute, TaillowIsCuteAndCool, Tart Spop, Tartius Spopius, Tartii, King of the Eevees and MasteroftheFlames. If you know me under any of those names, yeah, that's me.

Hoping to get Social Networking! I'd really appreciate an add.

Nitrodog96- I'm not familiar with Reddit at all, so if you'd be willing to help out with that that'd be great!
