This is the traditional style league that veterans at P.U.C.L. will be familiar with. Every Summer P.U.C.L. will host a League in which you will battle gym leaders in order to win 8 badges. These 8 badges will allow you to enter a tournament at the end of the league and the winner will win a varying prize.

The only requirement to sign up for this tournament is that you are part of the PUCL Discord and own a copy of Ultra Sun/Moon. Other than that no other requirements must be met.The annual Summer League will Start on June 4th 201 and Badge collection will run through August 5th 2018 (last day for collection). The League Tournament will then start August 12th 2017.

Badge Collection Information/Rules:

All battles will be Smogon OU, 6v6, single battles. Species, Evasion, Sleep, Endless Battle, Baton Pass, Moody, and OHKO clause(s) are active. You can find what they detail here:

  • Gym leaders are to follow their designated typing, but their teams consist of the following:
  1. 3 pokemon of their designated type
  2. 2 pokemon that know an offensive move of their designated type
  3. 1 pokemon that can be anything they want

*This prevents people from  bringing in one type of pokemon to sweep gym leaders. If you lose to a gym leader you can rechallenge them at their discretion. Gym leaders will also give you help if you need to learn certain skills in pokemon to advance farther in the league.

  • You must earn 8 badges to compete in the Summer League tournament.
