    I like the general idea of the rental space. But aboot the legend snatching. ..I guess I just see it as I worked my butt off for 2 of the birds... and blade has the third. .. but then let's say Aura rents blades and now also had a complete set and now gets who ever is unlock ..

    Oh wait.

    That might break the system. If someone had all three in their possession, they could just rent them away and lugia could be caught all the time. Never really put an imposing limit on that. Hrm. Guess if that was to be a problem. .. the renter would have to own at least one legend that was needed for this quest, to stop farming issues. Great idea

    Or maybe limit it to one rented pokémon at a time.

    And make the fee dependent not only on time, but the status of the pokémon in question. Basic? 1 point for a week or so. Stage 1? 2 points, and so on. Legends can be 5 points or whatever. If the pokémon has 1 or 2 extra moves, upcharge! Good times.

    We should really bring catching Pokemon back. I've seen many other ASBs have this and it works out just fine. It would be a lot easier to control teams this way, instead of leaving it up to the randomness of the safari zone, incubation center, and solstice tree.

    So, I'm trying to bring in new members, but it's mostly through word of mouth.

    Any ideas on how to make this place as good as it used to be?

    More refs.

    Yeah. You can have tons of new people, but if you don't have enough refs then it won't be enough. We need more resources, aka refs, and once we get that then we'll be able to bring in more members and have a flow established.

    Who's around who can/is willing to ref? I know of Oslo and DL. By the looks of things, EmeraldGen3 (now EG3 for short) is reffing, but... slowly?

    I might be willing to join the fun, but give it some time.

    I'm still helter skelter, but the two battles I have will be done today.

    When the hell did I ever have time for 15 reffings in a day?

    You can only get better with continued practice! And if it gets confusing, you can always ask one of your fellow refs for advice.

    I have to remind myself to get back to reffing someday...if I can find any of the resources I made while I last reffed here, I may be inclined to ref here again.

    But being as this is the suggestion thread, I'm curious to ask, is the double point promotion only lasting until the end of this month? If so, is it possible it may be extended with enough activity here?

    There are too many variables for me in a Pokemon Battle to ref. I think it would make hours to put up a single round and still I'd get no sleep at night thinking if something went wrong. Honestly, would me reffing make more good or bad? I might have to quit reffing in the middle of the battle, and then the participants would have to apply for sub-reffing.

    For me, the whole hassle with getting back into reffing is trying to get my template back in working order. Usually the hardest part of reffing a battle is implementing all the information in Round 1, once you're able to get that out of the way, reffing the rest of the battle is pretty cake because you have all the tables already preset so its a matter of copying and pasting and obviously just changing the moves that were made and the health/energy stats. Obviously, this all resets when a Pokemon is knocked out and a new one is sent forth but it's not too bad if I say so myself.

    Hell, if I can figure out my template once more, I might dive into the fray. God knows the reffing rewards were actually worth something.

    Reffing definitely was fun, but it depends if you have the motivation to do it and it's something that I don't really want to invest time into. Sorry guys, I'm the problem.

    I have a suggestion (well more a request but...), buff steadfast, in the games its ok because flinching only happens if your opponent hits first, therefore more speed prevents that, however here you can flinch regardless of whether or not you hit second (unless there's an obscure thread somewhere that states otherwise) so my request is that steadfast either receives immunity from flinching, or is prevented from flinching if moving first

    I don't know about the other refs, but I ref flinch so that it can only occur when the user of a move such as Bite attacks first.

    We did away with signature moves a long time ago because it became too difficult for the mod teams to really govern them. They were either too similar to already established moves or broken. The short answer is that they've never been established in the Pokémon canon, so they're irrelevant in our league.

    Could it bring more activity if referees wouldn't have to seek approval? Last time I checked, mock reffing hasn't been updated for aeons.

    If the release of Pokemon Sun/Moon helps immensely in reviving ASB, that would be good...but by rebooting the entire league, do you mean for us to get new teams of Pokemon and restart our bank accounts at 0, Greyfox? Many of us (not just you and I) worked hard to get the Pokemon and points that have been left idle but are still usable in the future, and quite frankly, I can't imagine restarting at square one for a second time.

    Well, we don't really do anything with them anyway. And I'm not suggesting a full reset by any means. Each person can choose to hold onto a select few Pokemon on their teams and start from scratch with everything else.

    Why should we start over? Like Knight of Time said we worked hard for the Pokemon and points. As for myself, my own bank account is low, but what about my Pokemon? The only reason I can think of is that the battles that were going on became glitchy when the board code changed. That leads to another question, does anybody know how to ref with the current board code besides perhaps Oslo?

    I wouldn't mind a reboot in changes to overall structure of how the league works (Safari Zone, Gyms, games, etc.) but I really wouldn't want to restart on points and Pokemon.

    And I would definitely be down to help out in whatever way I can to help make the reboot happen.

    I have a few ideas that could be implemented to make the league more engaging. And while I would prefer a hard reboot to give newcomers a fair shot, I feel like a compromise could be made.

    For instance--we could start over from scratch, but designate some of our old Pokémon to a standby position. We won't be able to use them rightaway, but we won't outright lose them either. After as few months or so, we can use them again.

    Kind of reminds me of what Ash does whenever he starts a new league. Leaves his old Pokemon behind at Oak's lab and then recalls them later for major battles down the line.
