PERFECT POKEMON ELITE FOUR For the next 4 Official Tournaments (Power Play 1-4), the winner will have the opportunity to become part of our new Perfect Pokemon Elite Four team. These tournaments have also been brought within one week of each other, so here are the dates you need to know! 5th April 2015 - Power Play I 12th April 2015 - Power Play II 19th April 2015 - Power Play III 26th April 2015 - Power Play IV If the winner of the tournament has already earned the position of Elite Four member, the request will be passed down to second place, then third place, etc. However, the cast of Elite Four members will change from time to time with members with 12+ badges having priority. More details on this when the time comes. As an Elite Four member, you may challenge the Champion for their position at any time, regardless of your number of badges. This opens up a lot more competition regarding the Champion title. Also, members of the Elite Four will receive a Custom Banner. NEW BADGES! So what badges will you obtain when you beat an Elite Four member? For every Elite Four member that you beat, you will receive a badge with an additional colour on it to prove how many you have beaten. BECOMING CHAMPION Now, if you want to battle the Champion, there are two possible routes you can take: Defeat 18 gyms and go straight for the Champion spot Defeat 8 gyms, beat all 4 of the Elite Four and then battle the Champion (mirrors in game) As for the Elite Four members themselves, you may select any tier you wish to be your battle type! Here they are outlined, so you can take your pick: Ubers OU UU RU NU PU NFE LC Doubles Triples Rotation Two Elite Four members are not permitted to have the same battle type. Also, you are not permitted to have an Uber on your team - this is only for the Gym Challenge as it gives Gym Leaders some assistance dealing with counter teams. Please see the tier lists for more detail. If there is a format you'd really like to use which currently isn't available, feel free to request it. Finally, if an Elite Four member does go inactive, this will be dealt with. We will replace the member with another player with 12+ badges.
