Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all.

someone battle this man, I voluntell @Sandstone-Shadow to help me ref the battle

btw @Mr. Ultracool I would recommend having a damage cap higher than 25% and/or limiting the use of direct healing moves to prevent the battle from dragging on forever; especially with such a low damage cap a Pokémon could really easily heal off all the damage taken in a single round and restore most of the energy expended with just a single Chill. if you're wondering about what are reasonable numbers, a 35-40% damage cap is usually a good amount (I guess the first post of this thread is sort of out-of-date, haha), and you could also choose to add a restriction such as "1 direct healing move per Pokémon" or even banning direct heals altogether depending on how you want your battle to go! if you like 25%, banning direct heals altogether would probably be the best way to go to have a reasonable-speed battle with that damage cap.

I'd love to take you up! Also happy with Eifie's rule suggestions. I can't do 3v3 though - I only have two Pokémon so far.

There are a bunch of free Pokémon looking for trainers in the trading post thread, if one happens to catch your eye!

@Mr. Ultracool let me know what you decide on for the rules, and then we'll get this started.

Oh, sorry, I hadn't actually noticed anything had happened, or that I needed to do something on my end too! I've collected the gift now - thank you, @Keldeo!

Ready when you are.
