How to become a Gym Leader

To become a gym leader, there are the following requirements:

  • You must be in possession of the badge for the gym you are applying to (unless there is no current leader).
  • You must have a full team of pokemon at the specific required level.
  • The team must consist of primary/secondary type pokemon matching the gym’s type.
  • Your team must be level-locked (learn how to in the Level Locking Guide )
  • Your team must have 5 unique pokemon. 1 repeat is allowed.
  • You must not IV Breed /EV Train the pokemon used in the gym.
  • You must not use Legends.
  • Held items are allowed.

Once these requirements are met, you may apply at our Gym Leader application page.

You will need to prepare the following information in your application:

  • Minecraft username
  • Age
  • Email address
  • Detailed descriptions of your pokemon
    • Either screenshots of their summary page or written as text

Once your application has been read and approved, you will be emailed with further instructions.

Gym Leader Rules

  • Only challengers with a pokemon within the level requirements may battle you,
    • They do not need a full team, but any pokemon in the team must be in the level bracket,
  • You may not use any healing items of any kind. The same goes for the player,
  • You may not say no to a challenger because you dislike them,
  • First come, first served. You have to battle challengers in the order they approach you.
  • You may only accept one challenge from each player, per day.
  • You must give the player the badge once they have defeated you,
    • We recommend screenshotting the end-battle screens for evidence in case a player is trying to dispute the result of the battle.
