Earning a badge!

 What does it take? It changes for each gym! Normally, the games increase in difficulty as you progress, but that wouldn't be any fun if characters could just as easily take on the Gyms that are supposed to be for top trainers only. THEREFORE, the gym leaders aren't going to be pushovers like in the games! In order to win a badge, the mods will take into account your current roster and the attacks and advantages to see whether your pokémon is strong enough to win a badge or not.

If you can prove you've defeated all 8 Johto gyms (in Kanto) or Kanto gyms (in Johto), the Leader will have a separate, special 'power' team in reserve to take you on with. These power teams feature only Lv100 pokemon, so be careful!

!!! Badges must be mod approved. To earn a badge, please comment on this post. Please don't ask for more than two badges to be approved at once!

Please use this form to request a badge! Post your request as a comment to this post. Please note, because of the new detailed system and possibilities, the response time will be slightly extended. Try to not PM or IM mods about badges (including elite challenges) unless your request has gone unanswered for a week or 7 days.

!!! Please request badges as your character is actually in the general area of the gym!

!!! To preserve the spirit of the game, obtaining badges using Pokémon obtained via drop trades and transfers is discouraged. If this happens, you'll be asked by the badge mod to revise your team.

[personal profile] in4apounding 2016-05-02 12:57 am (UTC)(link)
Character: Penny Polendina | [personal profile] in4apounding
Badge/Gym Leader: Bugsy - Hivebadge
Elite/Regular: Regular Team
Lavendar - Gligar, lvl 40
Rory - Charizard, lvl 56
Teale - Aegislash, lvl 71
Reina - Chatot, lvl 73
Chroma - Aggron, lvl 96
Amber - Galvantula, lvl 100
Full Roster

Battle Details:
Penny's strategy is essentially sending her Chatot in against Pinsir and Heracross, attacking with Chatter for a STAB attack and Hyper Voice for a solid shot of normal damage if needed, and Roosting if necessary to regain health. She's holding her Charizard in reserve for Bugsy's Scizor, starting off with a Fire Spin to try pinning it down and Flamethrower to do real damage.
The rest of her Pokémon are essentially backup in case things go wrong. Gligar hitting Pinsir or Heracross with Acrobatics or hit-and-run tactics with U-Turn, swapping out for Chroma or Teale if it's outpowered. Teale and Chroma against any of Bugsy's team, banking on level difference, high defense, and moves like Aerial Ace, Night Slash, or Earthquake. And Galvantula in case her Charizard fails against Scizor,

[personal profile] hashtagafreakingghost 2016-05-02 02:55 am (UTC)(link)
Character: Ashley | [personal profile] hashtagafreakingghost
Badge/Gym Leader: Hive Badge
Elite/Regular: Regular
Team: Agatha (Litwick, lvl 48), Eliot (Meowstic, lvl 33), Arwen (Sylveon, lvl 29), Bram (Crobat, lvl 40)
Battle Details: With her Litwick and Crobat, Ashley's pretty confident about this battle and is going to be relying mostly on type advantage. For Pinsir, she'll send out Crobat for a super-effective Flying-type bonanza. It's when Heracross comes out that things will be a little...tricky.

Because her Sylveon so desperately wants to fight in a gym battle, she'll cautiously send her out and while there's an advantage over Heracross' secondary type BOY OH BOY THIS EEVEELUTION SURE IS LIKE EIGHT LEVELS BEHIND so that's a problem. She'll probably try some pure-power attacks like Draining Kiss and then realize she's a little screwed, meaning Ashley will switch up the tactics here, relying on Sand Attack and...Toxic, actually, thank goodness for Egg Moves! So with Heracross successfully poisoned and blinded by sand, she'll call back Sylveon...if she hasn't fainted by then which you know is incredibly likely? And then she'll send in her Meowstic, who is still a lower level than Heracross, but also has a type advantage on Fighting! ...He'll probably get beat to hell and back, though, if Heracross can get a hit in. With the poison and the accuracy lowering, hopefully a few good hits will take him down.

...And if Heracross still stands, there's the heavy hitter come to save the day, Litwick. She's more than ten levels higher, so that'll be the end of that! Litwick is also the Pokémon of choice to take on Scizor. There is frankly no better one, and Ashley's just going to go for Fire-type attack after Fire-type attack, back to type advantage over all, particularly Fire Spin, Flame Burst, and Inferno.

Character: Weiss Schnee | [personal profile] usedglaciate
Badge/Gym Leader: Hive Badge/Bugsy
Elite/Regular: Regular
Team: here
Battle Details: Weiss is going to be focusing on the weaknesses she's able to attack, with Amaura's Rock-type moves and Gligar's Flying-type moves. If those fail, she'll be going for brute-force tactics, primarily trying to freeze or drown out the bugs.

Character: Dave Strider | [personal profile] callbacks
Badge/Gym Leader: Hive
Elite/Regular: Regular
Team: Dessa Darlina (Litwick L:38), Breeze Nuts (Altaria L:57), Missy Elliot (Volcarona L:91)
Battle Details: Honestly, Litwick's the only one Dave's throwing into the ring that even allows Bugsy a sporting chance. With the rest of Dave's team at the levels they've attained, this battle is basically a formality. An embarrassing formality.

[personal profile] charcoalfeather 2016-05-11 09:24 am (UTC)(link)
Character: Rakka | [personal profile] charcoalfeather
Badge/Gym Leader: Zephyr badge/Falkner
Elite/Regular: REGULAR TEAM
Team: Kūki, Fezā, and Tamashī Bright Kuu Star Gale Chi
Battle Details: Rakka's first gym battle, and she's probably unprepared for it, not that that means she won't give it her best try. She's already seen how hard it can be thanks Papyrus, so she'll be on her guard as well.

Mostly, she'll try to match Falkner with flying types, Gale and her Dodrio are fairly even leveled with them. Chi and Star will come in whenever it's about halfway in for electric attacks and fire status effects like Will-o-Wisp. Chi's weaker, so she'll get swapped out for Bright or Gale whenever it gets tough. Psychic attacks like psybeam and psyshock should help wherever.

Kuu is... also there. He will get at least one metronome in, Rakka promised. He's determined to help, but Rakka will keep the focus on her stronger teammates.

[personal profile] yanginthere 2016-05-13 03:28 am (UTC)(link)
Character: Yang Xiao Long | [personal profile] yanginthere
Badge/Gym Leader: Whitney/Plainbadge
Elite/Regular: Regular
Team: typing, current moves(TMs added), and leveling proof
Arcanine, 59
Pyroar, 58
Murkrow, 61
Nidorino, 54
Pidgeotto, 58
Ninetales, 63

Battle Details: Since status effects are likely to catch her off guard, Yang is going to emphasize speed (Agility, Quick Attack, Sucker Punch) and misdirection (U-Turn, Captivate, Confuse Ray) for her opening moves.

Having some measure of patience and appreciation for tactics over brute force, thanks to the age-swap in effect, she will watch for opportunities to try and turn psychic moves against their users with Mirror Move, especially if it's Psybeam, once she's seen what it can do.

All in all, Yang is still there to put on a show, so the Big Guns of her fire types will still feature prominently. In other words: Overheat > Incinerate > I N F E R N O
