Hello and welcome to our new section to join Battles, the Battle Frontier! The Battle Frontier is an excellent way to test your skills with the multiple options and variety that these new towers provide, and are a similar divergence from the standard battling of Gyms and other battles (akin to Orange Islands). URPG and those who worked on it hope you will enjoy this new part.

To start off with, it would be worth it to introduce what rewards will come from winning in these towers. Not only will you gain a Frontier Seal and the cash for winning (Based around the payout structure from gyms), you will also win a select Battle Item to help you in further competition! The items for each one will hopefully be able to assist you be it you overcome the challenge. Now, to move onto the actual part: what these towers are.

We currently have only 4 decided on, but we will be releasing more in the future! For the meantime, these will be our Towers as well with their Brains!
Spoiler:


Brain VeloJello of the Battle Factory

Battle Factory Rules:

6v6 S/M Private Full
Helds On
No Starting Weather
Default Terrain
Sleep/Freeze/OHKO/Accuracy/Evasion/Mega/Z-Move Clauses
Defender’s Choice: Singles/Doubles, Item Clause


Adaptation!: Both the Frontier Brain and Challenger will be rolled a pool of 9 Pokemon rolled from this list: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...osHb6X0tk/edit
and will select 6 from them to use. All 6 will have full EMs available from Ultradex, and be evolved to their final evolution and or any form they take (such as you can use normal Pikachu/Pichu, any of its cosplay formes, or Raichu/Alolan-Raichu if rolled Pichu). Any Duplicates will be rerolled. Both players also have the ability to rent up to two items for this battle, but MUST specify which ones they're renting to the ref. You must also specify Hidden Power Types for each mon before the battle; if not chosen, the mons will not know Hidden Power.



Brain Gold and Gray Nine of the Battle Dome

Battle Dome Rules:
3+3v6
S/M Private Doubles
Helds On
No Starting Weather
Default Terrain
Sleep/Freeze/OHKO/Accuracy/Evasion Clauses
Defender’s Choice: Preview/Full, Item/Mega/Z-Move Clause


Two Minds think Alike!: The challenger will face two Brains at once! Both players acting as Frontier Brain will share their pool of Pokemon and battle as normal. They will send their moves collectively to the ref; their Pokemon pool will be considered one battler as well.



Brain Liam of the Battle Hall

Battle Hall Rules:
6v6
S/M Private
Helds On
No Starting Weather
Default Terrain
Sleep/Freeze/OHKO/Accuracy/Evasion Clauses
Defender’s Choice: Preview/Full, Singles/Doubles, Item/Mega/Z-Move Clause


Rainbow Madness!: Both players must have a Pokémon of each of the 18 types. They will send one Pokemon of each type to the ref (Dual type Pokémon are allowed to fill either of their own slots [i.e. Dragonite can fill either Dragon or Flying]). Then, 6 types are rolled and the Pokemon representing each type will be sent for the battle. Items will be sent after the types are rolled, and the lists will not be revealed.

Brain K'sariya of the Battle Pyramid
Battle Pyramid Rules:
6v6
S/M Private Full
Helds On
No Starting Weather
Default Terrain
Sleep/Freeze/OHKO/Accuracy/Evasion Clauses
Defender’s Choice: Singles/Doubles, Item/Mega/Z-Move Clause


Legendary Presence: Both players are rolled a group of iconic legendary trios!
The options are:
Moltres, Zapdos, Articuno (legendary birds)
Raikou, Entei, Suicune (legendary beasts)
Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Keldeo (Muskateers)


The Trio roll is private and both battlers will be notified by their Ref on who they will be renting. Those Pokemon will have their entire movesets and HAs unlocked. After that, the battlers will send 3 additional Non-Legendary Pokemon to help build a team worth being called legendary!
(If rolled the Muskateer group, choose 3/4 to use in the battle). You must also specify Hidden Power Types for each mon before the battle; if not chosen, the mons will not know Hidden Power.



With that all cleared out, I hope to see this new area thrive and encourage some more battle activity! If you have any recommendations for a new Tower or just have any questions, feel free to message me on Discord or any of the Senior Refs. There will be a page this coming week on the Infohub for it.

To end this thread, I want to give thanks to all these members for their help with the development of the Frontier and moving it forward:
Mikey57, Liam, Gold, Gray Nine, Velojello, Juliorain, Elrond, Xali
