Pokémon Gym Challenge:

Do you have what it takes to beat all of our gym leaders?
Friday night will be the chance for you to bring out your toughest Pokémon. Battle it out with other Pokémon Trainers and see who will be crowned champion!

This challenge is for the Alolan generation of Pokémon DS games, both Sun/Moon and Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon. All 5 Leaders will have teams compatible with both, so it won’t matter which game is used to challenge them. Please let the Leader know what game you have before the battle.

Standard rules for TasPop Pokémon Challenges apply:
No legendary Pokémon
No UltraBeasts
No duplicate Pokémon
No duplicate items
Flat lvl 50 Battles (Pokémon are recommended to be at least level 50)

Bring along your best team of 6 Pokémon for 4v4 battles.
