With the addition of the player run Elite 4's, these are the guidelines we are asking for in your participation.

Rules and Guidelines
  • Each E4 member chooses 2 types, these types cannot be the same type chosen by other E4 members on your chosen server
  • Each pokemon on an E4 member’s team must contain one of their two chosen types. If you choose Ground and Electric as your types, you cannot have Empoleon (Water/ Steel typing), but you can have Galvantula (Bug/ Electric typing) or Rhyperior (Rock/ Ground typing)
    • E4 members are allowed to change the pokemon on their team, but are not allowed to change the type of their team while they are in the E4
  • Initial E4 members for each server will be chosen through a tournament run by un-linked staff, these tournaments will be announced with dates and times prior to the event
    • In the event that an E4 member retires, a staff will take that position, but will not have the 1-week buffer period defined below
  • E4 members will be given badges to hand out to those that beat them in best-of-1 battles, where the E4 member’s title is not at stake
    • These battles can be done at any time, including the 1-week buffer period, stated below
    • Best-of-1 challenges will not have the 2-type restriction on the side of the challenger
    • These challenges will also result in an in-game money reward of $10,000, payed by Headmod+
    • During title matches, both the challenger and title holder are NOT allowed to switch teams
    • All pokemon MUST be level 100 or under
  • Once you have received the title of E4, you will have a buffer period of 1-week where no one can challenge you for your title
    • After the buffer period if someone wants to challenge you for your title they will face you with their planned E4 team (they choose 2 types, and make their team based on those types) in a best-of-3 format, whoever wins 2 out of the 3 matches will be the new E4 member
      • If the challenger loses, this does not grant another 1-week buffer period to the retaining E4 member
    • The challenger must have their E4 team prepared before the challenge, and face the E4 member with that team
  • Each E4 member will be given their own room at /warp playerE4, they can decorate this room however they wish, inappropriate or griefing builds within the E4 will result in you losing your title
  • If an E4 member wishes to challenge the champion of the server, the battle will be best-of-3, just like an E4 title challenge. If the champion loses, the E4 member that challenged the champion will become the champion, and the champion will be placed on the E4.
    • The champion does not have the same 2-type restriction as the E4
