Welcome to the Second Annual Gator Pokemon Gym Leader Challenge!

This time around, Our 8 Gym Leaders have concocted quite the challenge for you! Here’s how it’ll work:

  • Defeating a Gym Leader will earn you that Leader’s badge.
  • We’ve been breeding a lot for this event. As such, earning 5 Gym Badges will earn you a newly hatched version of one of our team members.
  • If you earn 8 badges, you can challenge a Gym Leader in Elite Mode! Elite Mode means that the Leader of your choosing will use their natural OU teams!
  • Beating a leader in Elite Mode will earn you their Star Pokemon!

Do you have what it takes to be a Master?

This Event will use Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Accomodations can be made for Pokemon X and Y.
The Ruleset is Smogon OU and your teams will be checked before entry.
