After taking in feedback from the public and discussing possible methods of reconstruction, we have finalized results. The league is now separated into two divisions: 3DS and Pokémon Showdown!

Each division consists of 5 people: The Elite 4 and the Champion. You must battle the members in a pre-determined order, similar to the Pokémon game. Once you beat the first person, you are allowed to move on and challenge the second person. To keep roughly the same difficulty as the previous league (since there is a reduced minimum number of battles), there is a penalty for losing matches. You will get 2 attempts against the same person. If you lose twice to the same person, you will be bumped down on the elite 4 "ladder" and will need to win against the previous member again to continue. Of course, you may challenge the first person as many times as you need to win.

In addition to the penalty, Elite 4 members now have the option to use Dual-type teams or the original monotype wildcard setup. Dual-typing means a leader's team will consist of all pokémon with at least one of the two selected types. Each member's preference will be noted in their thread title, so you will know what you are getting into.

And now, a summary of who is actually participating in the league, and the types they are representing. Note that they are also listed in the order they should be challenged.

3DS division:
Faketime - Mono-Bug Type
Volke Aeno - Dual Dragon/Fairy Type
Lightlanayru - Dual Psychic/Flying Type
Midnite - Dual Steel/Water Type
Zanryo - Mixed Types

Showdown division:
Horsy- Mono-Dragon Type
iSpin - Dual Grass/Steel Type
Yoshinendo - Dual Water/Electric Type
Foodies - Mono-Ghost Type
Hamek - Mixed Types

We are aware that in this format, there's the possibility of progress being clogged by an inactive member. In the case that a member does not respond in 3 days, another member of the league will be allowed to sub for them. Post in the substitution request thread for these cases.

Depending on how many players can beat the league and how lazy the content team is, we may be doing "Pokémon reporter" interviews for everyone who completes the challenge. These are for fun and you are free to decline, of course. Your achievement will also be recorded into the Hall of Fame so everyone will know of your amazing Pokémon trainer skills!!! Exclamation point.

And for those who don't know or don't remember, a refresher on the prizes!

Badge name - name color : requirements
Pokémon Master badge –  pink (existing) : For completing a normal league challenge
Pokémon Prodigy badge – purple (existing) : For completing a monotype or UU league challenge
Elite trainer – Yellow with Blue outline (exclusive!) : For completing a UU monotype league challenge

Sample:


Everyone who wants to challenge the league must join the official group. Remember to read all the rules and information first! 


I hope this newly restructured league gives the flexibility and motivation for more people to participate! If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post below or in the group shoutouts.

Happy St. Patrick's Day Lads!!!

Hey, AiB! How are you all on this fine day? This is lightlanayru (Trish) here, but not as your Head of Ladder Content. I am here as a fellow member of the Pokémon community with a couple of awesome announcements! You have read the title of this article, and now... let the hype unveil itself!

After many weeks of planning and preparation, I am proud to announce the grand opening of the official AiB Pokémon League for the 5th Generation!





The Gym Leaders (+ Champion)


Volkner → Faketime (Normal)


Pryce → Black Father / Hamek (Grass)


Grimsley → Midnite (Steel)


Cress → IblisStarEvan (Water)


Shauntal → lightlanayru (Psychic)


Sabrina → Neiko (Ghost)


Elesa → Dashing Professor Req (Fighting)


Lenora → wWw Fats (Flying)


The Champion → Mangporeyawn (type-varied)



There have been some changes for this Pokémon League as compared to the 4th generation. Not to worry, though! Your objective to conquer the league remains the same, and your battles can be done either through your DS (if you have Black or White) or Pokémon Online (download the simulator here). There will be badges and cards given out to those who have proven themselves victorious over the Champion. The rules of the league, as well as more in-depth information are provided in the official group. So, if you are up for a rigorous challenge, join the AiB 5th Gen Pokémon League group now!

In addition to the grand opening of the 5th Gen Pokémon League... haha, you do realize what today is, yes? Indeed, today is the official release date of Pokémon Black & White! Well actually, today is Europe's release date for the 5th generation installments on the DS, but do not fret! I trust that the Americans can survive 48 hours or less of waiting for Pokémon Black & White to come out. They come out this weekend, after all. Also, in case you were probably unaware, there is still a mall tour going on (until March 20th) throughout the U.S. for the promotion of these games, and I do highly recommend going to one of these if you can't wait to try them out. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance, and I was lucky enough to go! You can check out my blog for more info on the Pokémon Black & White mall tour!

Anyway, with the English versions of Black and White coming out, you will be embarking on a journey to the Unova region! New features have also been added into these games, such as having triple or rotation battles, as well as gaining access to the Global Link to obtain the Dream World abilities for your Pokémon! There are over 150 new Pokémon in the 5th generation to look out for, and of course, you will be conquering the gyms and the Pokémon League while you encounter some trouble on the way! You will be traveling with a traditional starter Pokémon, and you have a choice of choosing between Snivy (the grass-type), Tepig (the fire-type), and Oshawott (the water-type). If you are one of those indecisive trainers who can't decide on what starter to choose, we have an in-game analysis for each of the starters in their final-evolution forms, respectively written by lightlanayru, Mangporeyawn and Midnite.



Serperior is, indeed, the royal snake of the starters. While it lacks a secondary type, it has a decent base speed of 113 and its other base stats are well-rounded. Sadly, Serperior's movepool is a little poor (especially outside of its Dream World ability, Perversity), but it still has some useful moves. In its base evolution form, Snivy learns Leaf Tornado at level 16 before it evolves into Servine at level 17, which is a pretty decent attacking move to use (with a chance of lowering the target's accuracy) throughout the beginning/middle of the game. Your best attacking moves for STAB are Leaf Blade and Leaf Storm / Solarbeam, but it depends on your preference of either attacking physically or specially. Energy Ball is also a good attacking move (with an added small chance of lowering the target's special defense), and Serperior learns this through TMs. To take advantage of Serperior's defenses, Leech Seed is definitely a must if you prefer to heal some HP each turn, and it also learns Giga Drain to heal itself more effectively. Serperior can also use Toxic for status-inflicting purposes, but it has its downsides against steel and poison-types, as they can resist grass and poison type attacks. Outside of STAB, its possible useful move (besides Return) is Dragon Tail, which is also learned through TMs. When using Dragon Tail, not only does it inflict damage, but the target is forced back in its pokeball and the trainer is forced to send out a different random pokemon in his/her party. In addition, this is Serperior's only attacking move that can take care of dragon-types.

By the end of the game, Serperior's possible best moveset is this:
Sunny Day / Double Team / Growth / Coil
Leech Seed / Giga Drain / Wrap
Leaf Blade / Dragon Tail / Return / Wrap
Grass Knot / Energy Ball / Solarbeam / Leaf Storm

With Serperior's shallow movepool and its despise towards fire types, it does enjoy some company with water types. Luckily, you should be able to obtain the water monkey, Panpour, early in the game. Sadly, there are not that much water-types to see after Panpour, though unless you have obtained Surf, you would be able to encounter Alomomola, Frillish, and Jellicent on the seas. Otherwise, you can have a ground type aid with Serperior, such as obtaining a Drilbur, Sandile, or Golett, and evolve them all the way into Excadrill, Krookodile, or Golurk respectively.

If you prefer to choose a different starter, there are quite a few grass-type Pokemon to note. You have Cottonee (in Black) and Petlil (in White) to go after. Sewaddle is also a notable grass type, as it can evolve all the way into a Leavanny, which has decent base attack and speed stats. Then, there is Deerling and Sawsbuck you can catch, as they have access to fighting-type moves, Megahorn, and Wild Bolt for type coverage. Of course, you also have access to Ferroseed and Ferrothorn for annoyance purposes.


Emboar is the definition of big and bad...no, not literally. Emboar is the strongest of the three starters boasting both a 123 base attack and a 100 base special attack, but there's a catch, a 65 base speed leaves it moving second in battle to many Pokemon. Luckily, Tepig learns a move at level 15 that cures the speed problem. Flame Charge is a physical Fire-type move that always increases your Pokemon's speed when used, so teaching it to Tepig will be worthwhile. Another thing that makes Emboar useful is its secondary Fighting-type, which it gets after Tepig evolves into Pignite. Many Pokemon you'll encounter throughout the game have weaknesses to Fighting-type moves. Only downside is that it only learns Arm Thrust through leveling, a 15 base power multi-hit attack. Prepare to rely on TMs to give it some better Fighting-type moves. Speaking of TMs, Emboar is one of, if not the only, Fire-Type Pokemon to learn a Water-Type move. It is capable of learning Scald through TM, which is fairly strong, and has a chance to burn. It also learns Wild Charge, which is a pretty powerful Electric-type move, though you should be careful when using it since it deals recoil damage.

Here's a few move sets you can use on Emboar near the end of the game to take full use of his skills:

Flame Charge/Wild Charge/Scald/Brick Break
Flare Blitz/Head Smash/Earthquake/Hammer Arm
Heat Crash/Hammer Arm/Overheat
Sunny Day/Solarbeam/Fire Blast

As a Fire-type, Emboar really hates Water-types. A simple remedy to this is to get the Grass-type Pokemon, Pansage, which you can get pretty easily and pretty early in the game. If you miss Pansage, you always have the chance to pick up either a Cottonee or a Petilil, which are version exclusive Grass-type Pokemon. Cottonee for Black and Petilil for White. Also, if you'd rather have the other exclusive Grass-type Pokemon, there's an in-game trade that'll give you the exclusive from the game opposite of yours. A good Dark-type like Purrloin can be obtained pretty early in the game to counter Psychic-type Pokemon trying to hit Emboar for super effective damage.

If you don't choose Emboar as your starter, it's not too hard to find a different Fire-type, unlike how Diamond and Pearl only had one Fir-type outside of the Chimchar evolutionary line before the National Pokedex. Darumaka is an excellent Fire-type available a little before halfway through the game. Not only is its evolution stronger that Emboar, but it's faster as well, and it learns nearly all of the same moves Emboar does. There are a few other Fire-type Pokemon available, but none really stand out in non-competitive environments. Chandelure is a pretty cool Fire/Ghost-type Pokemon with 145 base special attack, but not only does its first evolution take place at level 41, you also need to obtain a Dusk Stone to fully evolve it.


Samurott is well-rounded. It has nice attacking stats and reasonable bulk, but it's only slightly faster than Emboar. Oshawott does a decent job early on. However, by the time it evolves into Dewott, it starts to fall behind, as it doesn't gain many good non-water moves outside of Fury Cutter and Revenge, making it harder to use. When it evolves into Samurott, it's... well, not exactly showtime yet. It really only gains Slash ad Aqua Tail by level. However, as you gain more TMs, you'll find them great asset for Samurott. Gaining the TMs for Ice Beam/Blizzard, Grass Knot, Scald, X-Scissor, and Dragon Tail help a lot. If you have a spare Heart Scale, you can also teach it Megahorn from the move relearner!

By end-game, the best moveset for Samurott is around the lines of:

Surf/Scald/Aqua Tail/Waterfall
Ice Beam/Grass Knot
Megahorn/Slash/Dragon Tail
Revenge/Slash/Dragon Tail

Samurott enjoys the company of a fire type to handle Grass types. You're given Pansear early. Darumaka/Darumantan also has great synergy if you skipped Pansear. A Grass type in Lilligant, Sawsbuck, or Maractus, or a Ground type in Krookodile, Excadrill, or Golurk will also help in the long-run, as they handle electric attacks.

If you don't plan on starting with Samurott, there aren't that many other notable water type in Unova. If you started with Snivy, you get Panpour. If you started with Tepig, there's Carracosta, Jelicent, and Seismitoad to consider. I would like to note that Carracosta has access to Shell Smash at a relatively early level of 40, which is a great offensive asset.



I believe that's about all I have for you. Are you ready for another adventure in the Pokémon world? This is your time now! I await to see what you've all got! Until next time, see ya~ :]
Alright, so as some of you may know, over a year and a half ago I started something called "Get Togethers" on All is Fighter. Essentially I was on MSN chatting with GoV on new ways that we could help AiF gain activity, and thinking of how AllisCrossing had K.K. Slider social events based on the night K.K. performs in AC: CF (Saturday), I got to thinking, "is there a way to import something like that onto a site like AiF? The answer I came up with was, yes.

So I said to GoV, what if we did something called "Get Togethers"? A social event that gives the community a chance to get together and discuss ways to improve the site, play some games, and just chat/have a good time.

Together we started to shape up the idea and started the AiF social Get Togethers (or just AiF Get Togethers). We started notifying all the people we could about the event in hopes for a good turnout, I got a hold of JV to tell him, and in the end it was a huge success that continued on for some time after.

Now I'm not going to go into details as to what's going on with the AiF Get Togethers these days, but I will say that Get Togethers are a great way to get the community together and make the site even better or more active than it already is (or at least have fun anyway).

So in brief I had been thinking of more ways I could help AiB, and well among a few other things, I finally came to this conclusion, and went to Enrish asking for his take on this, which was essentially, a yes.

Now then, onto the first AiB Get Together.


Well, being that Get Togethers obviously require organizational time and advertising time before the event actually happens, I figured since Valentine's Day is the next big holiday coming up, why not make the first one based off of that?


Anyway here is all the info on the All is Brawl V-Day Get Together!

Greetings everyone. I’d like to announce the launch of the official All is Brawl Pokémon League to all of you. This is a league open to anyone to participate in, and hope for it to be a great success in expanding and promoting the enormous Pokémon community on AiB.

The league itself consists of 9 gym leaders, and 1 champion. To defeat the league you must defeat 4 of the 9 gym leader’s mono-type teams. This grants you access to challenge the league champion. People who are defeated by the champion will have to wait 3 days before re-challenging gym leaders for another shot at the champion. However, winners who manage to defeat at least 4 gym leaders and the champion will be rewarded with the brand new Pokémon Master badge.

Allow me to introduce the league to all of you, so you know what you’re getting into before challenging the league: 



Clair - lightlanayru (Psychic)
Wallace - Dashing Professor Beef (Water)
Volkner - Faketime (Normal)
Falkner - TheMangoVaporeon (Flying)
Koga - Terios the Hedgehog (Dark)
Giovanni - Arban (Fighting)
Jasmine - Midnite (Ground)
Blue - HyperKeeby (Electric)
Arceus - nealdt (Steel)

Morty - Champion Valdens (Mixed)

Also, everyone wanting to challenge the league will have to join the official group for it to request challenges from the gym leaders, views gym rules and information, and so we can keep track of which gyms you defeat or any members who manage to triumph over the entire league.

We hope a lot of people enjoy this brand new addition to AiB, and have a lot of fun participating in the league along with earning a brand new badge at the same time!
