      Hypothetically, would an Ice gym leader be allowed to use Castform if the arena made it in Ice form by default?

        You are trying your best to kill Vikavolt in a fire. I guess something like that could be considered, we would have to discuss it as a committee. Do you feel as if Castform is important to an Ice gym? I'm really not even looking at the approval thread tbh, show me you've done 15 approvals in a month and sure i'll re add you

        Castform learns Flamethrower so it's really good at letting Ice gym not roll over and die to Scizor.

        That is indeed a good point. Are you thinking of applying for ice gym?

      I don't know who to bug here. You were the first mod I saw, so here it goes.

      There is a possibility I might resign from my remaining duty (Mentorship). And I don't have any substitute in mind (I am just sure I don't want a certain person running it).

      While that isn't final by any means, how should I proceed, should that decision be made? The mods appoint someone? Who would be responsable for picking a name?
      1. deadfox081
        deadfox081
        Uhh well I suppose you could start by providing a list of possibly suitable replacements? Ultimately if you want to step down then we can either run it by committee or temporarily close it for a time until someone is found to take over

      Houston we have a problem. Or a question if you will:

      Regarding Ground Qualifiers, Birkal sent me a different team (pelipper instead of jynx) than he sent Toon. Is that possible? Back when I was on the gym com the team had to be the same. I am wondering if that changed.

      How should I proceed?
      1. deadfox081
        deadfox081
        It should definitely be the same team. Can you reply to Birkal suggesting that he should use the same team as vs Toon in his match with Gold. I'll make the same point in the gym comm room in discord

        it was mostly that the mon names weren't actually in there anywhere. i was c/ping from a quote of the teams thread and had to guess which profile was for which mon based on their abilities, since obviously i couldn't see the sprites. also there is a lot of unnecessary whitespace but thats just my ocd and not a big deal

      Please think twice before allowing jay to tutor reffing 202. I know we are a bit in need and I intend to revamp the format and prizes to address the matter. But I failed to see any...sign of "bothering" on his match vs toon.

      give it a thought, k? your call. Just felt I should let you know.

      Also, I need to bounce some ideas with you regarding the revamp I mentioned.

        last one as a hint for tutors to play around with moves their pokemon have or not so refs check profiles.

        I agree with the first point. Triples and positioning are both unnecessary.
        Don't see the benefit in the 2 hour rule, properly enforced tutoring standards should achieve the same result. I see no problem with the tutee posting quickly if they are able to, so long as they do so with accuracy.
        5 subs I personally think is a bit much, and will either lead to useless subs, contradictory ones or just not all 5 being used. I honestly think if the test just mimics a tough regular battle it would be the best case. Just my thoughts
        Totally in agreeance with short and strict DQ, that and capability are what need to be tested the most.
        Dec 29, 2016
      4. Frosty

        we should write down those tutor standards and enforce it better then. In that case, yeah I agree with you.

        I was suggesting 5 subs because subs are the most complicated thing in ASB rn, so testing them more is always good. Although we can go with 4 I suppose. Or keep the 3 and add a "tutors must try to make as many subs as possible throughout the match" standard.

        I mean, I am considering putting up a payment either per tutor post or per round, with a clause stating that UC can be deducted for the posts without that don't pose a proper test to the pupil. Just need to work out the math.

      Hey, sorry I wasn't active in IRC when you asked about a sun-setter. I'd prefer Ninetales due to the better utility movepool and access to Solar Beam (which I cannot remember if Torkoal has). Also it's fast.

        Sure thing go for it, just keep active and keep pressure on the tutee (not that these should be issues for you, consider it boiler plate)
