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 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.

Pre-registration is NOT required for this event. A premade list of music will be provided on the night. If you would like to submit a song to the master list, please use the below form.
Karaoke Song Submission Form:
- Songs are to not have; profanity, offensive language, outright mention of illicit drugs or their use, sex, illegal activity.
- To be of 480p or higher quality video.
- To have lyrics and timing tracker.
- Include an actual link to the wanted song, not the name of the song.
We are unable to insert lyrics and timing trackers into submitted songs, so those without will not be accepted. If we are given names but not links, we will not be using that suggestion.
