    I think I suggested something like this when I first started, but I've been developing a new idea off my last one. I'm sure for most of you who like football, baseball, hockey, etc know about the fantasy leagues, I thought it'd be fun to have a Pokemon Fantasy League complete with Gym Leaders and Elite Four. People can battle over Wi-Fi or the Battle Simulator, whichever division they choose, and they can place bets, which comes to my next suggestion. Poke Dollars, this can be something that gives members more things for there profiles such as; Titles, maybe certain donate perks can be affored to those with enough poke dollars. I thought this would all be a fun idea, please give me any feed back you have, because I really want to make this happen and I will do what I can to present this idea to the staff. Thanks.

    It doesn't really need to be proposed here, just send a private message talking to Wolflare about it and he'll tell you if it's okay or not for the tournaments subforum of Battle Center :)

      I'm not sure what you're asking here, but it is it basically some form of a PC Pokemon League of some sort? As in, it's own subform, and things of that nature?

        Well yes. But I am still hammering out the details. I just want a staff member to take a look at this, so I can further develop the idea. Just wanna know if they'd be on board with it.

        Well, that already kind of happened around four(or five?) years ago, back when Gen IV was sort of a new thing. XD It was mainly staff organized, but the main problem with that(someone can correct me here if I'm wrong, I'm not entirely sure here), is the maintenance.

        See, wi-fi battling was kind of a thing back then, too. Problem is, the gym leaders actually had to find free time to battle, have a good wi-fi connection, match with some people's schedules/timezones, and it became too much of a hassle to maintain, which is why I believe this idea might go down the same road, even if it's run by members. :(

          Yeah I see what you mean. But that kind of stuff can be ironed out, I'm sure I could figure something out for that. Simply put, if people apply to be a Gym Leader or Elite Four Member, they must be on, they will know the commitment they have to meet. I have back up plans for every problem I can think of, so I think it can be done.

          I also kind of forgot to mention that a gym leader also has gym trainers as well--and these trainers were appointed by the discretion of the leader--and they(more or less) have to fit the criteria that you just described. D:

          It might(yeah, heavy emphasis on this) work if we have...like, enough dedication and support for it and if the staff knew that it would be well-maintained, but due to what happened last time, I don't think it'll be brought back again. .-.

            I can guarentee it would be well maintained. I just need to convince the staff of that. This would bring a lot more fun to PC, something new!

            We have tournaments all the time in Battle Center however I'm pretty sure that it's just a collection of the same people participating, I don't think there's enough site-wide interest for a site-wide league. Though you could definitely make your own mini one in the Battle Center subforum if you talk to Forever or Wolflare n_n

              Since a Gym Trainer has a set party of Pokémon in-game, I imagine the maintenance thing would be taken care of in the way that you sign up, and you get a PM saying "Okay, everyone who wants to be character #x will need:

              -party-"

              And then everyone else just grabs their party and beats the characters.

              Uh, except it doesn't really work like that.

              You have a gym leader, right? Finding someone who has not only free time to fight each and every single challenger that comes their way, but also finding gym trainers that meet -and- fit the same qualifications. Now keep in mind that free time is a rarity for most people, so you're already stuck between a rock and a hard place, here.

              Now, assuming that you've got the first part satisfied, you're still not done yet! You have to convince the higher staff to vote on creating an entire Pokemon League forum instead of just having some sort of tourney in the Battle Center. The PC staff take this seriously in the sense that, while they welcome new ideas and innovation, and while they certainly don't mind giving things a shot, it's kind of a worry to have the risks outweigh the benefits in the end.

              For example, how is this going to be structured exactly? You're going to have to have a detailed plan and map it out to the h-staffers if you want them to really go through with something like this, as an entire forum section isn't going to be made for any old thing, I bet. u_u My two cents, though.

              Did you at least PM Wolflare like Forever suggested? Getting his opinion could be a start, and he's the best mod to ask right now, at least until the h-staff peek into this.

                Might be wise, if he thinks it has a chance he can spread the word to the h-staff.~

                This is a cute idea, it just depends on if enough people want to get going it, and think it would pay off.

                The league itself sounds like a cool idea for a BC event, but I don't like the idea of adding a currency. If this currency that you earn from the fantasy league has site-wide implications then that'd put members who aren't interested in this kind of thing at a disadvantage since it's a somewhat niche area, and I don't think PC would benefit from having a currency like this on the whole. I do love the bulk of the idea though, good thinking there! Just without the currency in my opinion.

                  logged in to say it sounds cool, man. just throw it in battle center if mods wont look at it like you said; it doesn't have to be sponsored or official to be a reality

                    The whole idea sounds like fun to me. Fantasy Leagues are always intriguing being apart of many Football,Baseball & Hockey leagues over the years have been enjoyable. Seeing that you came across such an idea of having a pokemon fantasy league is marvelous & something i would support!

                    Not to keen about the currency idea but wouldn't have a problem with it, something of that sort should be tossed into the idea though

                    The tournament sounds really fun and something I would join too, but I'm not too fond of the PokeDollar idea. I prefer only the tournament one.
