    Elite 4: Beware!

    Dear Pokemon Trainers of the PokeGemia region,

    I congratulate you on discovering the new region of PokeGemia. In this new region lies unknown discoveries and adventures for your taking.

    But, I am sad to admit, this monumental beginning is not the main reason why I am writing you. I need to warn you of a great challenge that will be coming to your region very soon.

    A set of masterful opponents are headed your way, and they will stop at nothing to conquer your region.

    They have mastered all species of Pokemon found in the Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, and Unova regions. Due to your discovery of an untouched region, possibly full of brand new species of Pokemon, they have set their sight on you. Their ultimate goal is to rule the entire Pokemon world!

    To prepare to take on this ruthless society of troublemakers, each trainer needs to choose six (6) Pokemon to take with them into the new region where the battles will take place. From September 1st-October 1st, trainers will be required to post a list of the six (6) Pokemon they will be registering for this competition in the style shown below:

    Excadrill with Life Orb
    Ability: Mold Breaker
    -Earthquake
    -Rock Slide
    -X-Scissor
    -Protect
    For this competition, only the Pokemon name, attached item, ability, and attacks are needed to be documented. Since the competition will be taking place in an area of the region that is still quite undeveloped, it is very likely that all communication will be down, so trainers will be unable to switch out any of the six (6) Pokemon they choose to bring with them during the length of the competition. Choose wisely.

    Each challenger will need to challenge each of the Elite 4 members, and will be added to a list of challengers to be battled one at a time.

    The game cartridges being used in this event is Black and White copies only. Until further notice, Black and White 2 game cartridges will not be allowed for battles. The battle format is the current 2012 Video Game Championship format. You can find the 2012 format rules here:
    http://pokegym.net/forums/showthread.php?t=154444 .

    All battles are to be done through the use of the "Pokegym Battles" System, located in the upper left hand corner on the blue bar next to User CP. Please take the time to look at the site feature and become acquainted with how the system works.

    A staff-appointed PokeGym VG staff member will decide the result of any battle in dispute that needs resolving, if any, between the E4 member and the challenger(s).


    Ready your best Trainers for this decisive battle. It will not be easy, but you must stop their advances now, or they may never be stopped.

    Be warned, the Elite Four are approaching!

    Good luck,

    A Friend

    Pokemon with DW abilities (that have become available legitimately) are usable in this event. BW2 cartridges can not be used at this time, as the games are not available in the USA.

    Does that include DW abilities released through BW2 (i.e. Technician Breloom)?

    Keldeo will not be a legal Pokemon for this event. Genesect and Milotto will not be able to be used in the event as well.
