  1. Welcome to Gym Leader Academy


    GLA is an eight month a year school in the Johto region where young trainers from all regions come to learn, grow, and become gym leaders of their very own. You take classes where you learn your type's weakness, advantages, and strategies to help you take out any opponent that challenges your gym.

    The academy is dorm set with 2 per dorm. Comes with areas such as a cafeteria, study hall, recreations room filled with tv, video and board games, and vending machines, an outdoor and indoor training room, a library, and of course, an arena to test your strength and skill.

    The dorms are separated from the main school grounds and are split up by sex. Each dorm building comes with it's own indoor pool, study hall and main living area to socialize with others.

    Grades range from:
    A (13-14 years old)
    B(15-16 years old)
    C(17-18 years old)

    No sexual content
    No, you're not unbeatable
    Swearing to a minimum
    Only two of the same typing gym leader

    Strengths- 8:45-9:50
    Weaknesses - 10:05-11:10
    Lunch - 11:10-12:40
    Strategy - 12:55-2:00

    I'm going to have to stop you right here. Dynamaxing can only be performed in specific spots within the Galar Region. Your setting is not the Galar region nor is it a Power Spot where dynamaxing can be performed. So there will be no dynamaxing shenanigans in THIS RP. Please review our RP forum rules.

    Also, please do not double post unless you have a very good reason. Posts merged.

    Could my characters typing be Dark and Psychic or can I only use one.

    Seeing that this is a school for gym leaders, you can only main one typing. But dual typing is allowed.

    Gender: Male
    Personality: Prideful and Stoic, Nero possesses an extreme superioritycomplex, seeing himself as the pinnacle of Pokémon battling and as such takes great pleasure in tormenting those he views as even remotely inferior.

    Name: Rumbletusk
    Species: Mamoswine
    Gender: Male
    Personality: Caring and kindhearted, Rumbletusk is always the first to welcome new Pokémon to Hyōga’s team, and as such he is seen as the caring older brother of the group.

  25. You didn’t actually say we couldn’t have Pokémon that weren’t exactly our types, Empoleon fits the icy theme regardless. Besides it’s not unheard of for gym leaders to have a Pokémon who fits their theme but not their typing
    Sabrina and Volkner both come to mind.

  39. Name: Colin Drake



    Due to his training with Dragon-type Pokémon throughout his entire life, Colin's body has been sculpted into the brawny, strapping equivalence of an Olympic athlete. His muscles have adapted to be able to withstand Dragon-type moves from Pokémon with high stats, and his skin is chestnut colored. Colin is not particularly attractive, with a rugged face and tousled black hair, often pushed aside with pomade, that hardly offsets his thick, unkept stubble. Despite the compliments he receives on his blue-green eyes, he is certainly no Prince Charming.

    Colin keeps his apparel rather modest in order to be prepared for athletic activity at any time. He normally wears a white v-neck tee shirt and a pair of dark gray fleece training pants with cuffed ankles. He tops off the look with a pair of white tennis sneakers and a hand-me-down denim jacket that is worn and slightly tattered.

    Typing: Dragon (Specifically, he is training Pokémon that will become Dragon-type once they evolve.)
