Now that I've gotten everything in my Alpha Sapphire in order, I want to announce a very special thing I really want to put together: the first annual Olarium Pokémon League!

How this is going to work is exactly like in the anime, not the games. A set amount of people apply for the league challenge and battle each other for victory! While I may be the main organizer of this event, I will be just another contender in this challenge. I have the same chances as anyone else to claim victory.
    I'm still thinking about what the prize could be, but I have a couple of ideas: a set amount of DA points, a Pokémon with the EVs, Nature and Ability of the winner's choice (bred and trained by me) or something else that you may suggest.
   
So how is this going to be organized? If enough people express their interest in taking part, I will create a group for this event and invite everyone to join it. I will post updates on the league, such as the next battles and the results of each of them. The battles will be decided by a randomizer, so the match-ups can very well be anything.
    Keep in mind: this is a competition, so knowledge on competitive battling will make you a strong contender, but it doesn't prohibit you from joining or winning in any way. This is an open competition for ANY Trainer willing to join.
    Special rules: This Pokémon League will go by the limitations and rules of Ranked Battle Spot, which you will see below.
    

  • Any Pokémon with a level greater than 50 will have its level automatically set to Level 50. Pokémon who's level is 50 or below will not have their level changed.
  • Players cannot use two or more Pokémon of the same species / same Pokédex number.
  • Players can only use any Pokémon that can be obtained through regular gameplay or distributed through an event. Pokémon that have been imported using hacked methods are not allowed.
  • Players can give their Pokémon items to hold for use in the competition but no two participating Pokémon can hold the same item.
  • Players can only use Items that can be obtained through regular gameplay or distributed through an event. Items that have been imported using hacked methods are not allowed.
  • None of the following Pokémon may be used: Mewtwo, Mew, Lugia, Ho-oh, Celebi, Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, Jirachi, Deoxys, Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Phione, Manaphy, Darkrai, Shaymin, Arceus, Victini, Reshiram, Zekrom, Kyurem, Keldeo, Meloetta, Genesect, Xerneas, Yveltal, Zygarde

!READ THESE RULES THOROUGHLY! Any Trainer caught disobeying the rules will be disqualified IMMEDIATELY

Also, as a bonus for those who want to improve on their battling skills, save your battle, whether you lost or won, and upload it to the web through your Vs. Recorder and give me the code it shows you so I can watch the battle and comment on it. This may come in handy in your next battle, whether in- or outside of the League.
    The rounds will go as follows: Preliminary Round, however many rounds we need to be left with four people, Semi-Finals, Bronze Round and the Finals. The Preliminary Round decides who continue to the actual rounds, obviously enough. Initial rounds are pretty self-explanatory. The Semi-Finals decide which two Trainers will battle for victory as well as who battle for third place. The losers of the Semi-Finals will battle for third place, which is the Bronze Round, whereas the winners will battle for 1st and 2nd place.
    There is no set time during which a battle has to take place, as I understand some people, especially me, might have limited access to wi-fi. As such, the battles will take place as soon as possible.
    There will be no Gym system UNLESS 8 people are willing to take the role of a Gym Leader. But I'm fairly certain everyone just wants to participate in the League. I don't blame you ^^ But what we will do is a participant MUST show me that he/she has defeated all 8 Gym Leaders of their respective game, be it X, Y, or ORAS. Just take a picture of your Badge Screen and show it to me so I can confirm that you qualify. This is more of a formality than anything else, but the anime as well as the games do this, so why shouldn't I, too?
    So take this chance to participate in the Olarium Pokémon League! If enough people participate this year, I'll be happy to make this a legitimately annual event! Anyone is free to join and anyone can win!

I'm aiming to have at least 8 people in this, so come on! If we can get to 16 or even 32, that would be awesome! Just remember that if you snooze, you might lose because the participants must be kept at a certain number. So if we get 15 competitors, only the 8 first people will be able to participate. If we get 31, only 16 can take part and so on.

At this moment we have 2 competitors:

1. For the first 10 people who comment on this journal, I will feature one of their characters I like and comment my choice(I will go to your gallery and pick one that i like... don't tell me which one)

2. If you comment, please do the same in your journal, and me in the first feature slot. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it's to spread art around for everyone! I feature you AFTER you made the journal.
(I do it like this, and no i'm not joking)

1. :icondjfrostyflame-animz: DJFrostyFlame-Animz
Two Sides Of The Same Coin by DJFrostyFlame-Animz
While the two characters themselves represent the doppelgänger cliché, their design is one of the best I've seen in sprites. I personally love the one with the blue hair, as cold blue is my absolute favorite color and ice is the main concept behind one of my characters as well. Quality sprites and a functional dopplegänger concept make this one of my favorites in pixel art.

2. :iconriamorr-welenth: Riamorr-Welenth
Gifts Received: OC For Haza! by Riamorr-Welenth
Just... Dragon grins. Glorious.

3. :iconeleganteevee: ElegantEevee
Best Friends Forever by ElegantEevee
Happiness, bliss and a whole lot of pink in this one! Representative of its creator, I must say, as the person behind this overjoyed portrayal of bliss is just as much of a joy to talk to as it is to see her art. I go to her page like twice a day to remind myself of just how fucking happy someone can be.

4. :iconpathea:
Pathea now in traditional by PatheaFils de France. by PatheaMega-Absol by Pathea
Decided to do three because her art is my personal favorite on DeviantArt.

5. :icontriplet99c:

I really like how the colors and the outfit's design come together here. Plus, the cheerful face just makes you want to hug her to death! :3

I absolutely fell in love with the idea of the wedding meme but figured I'd try to come up with my own version. So here's the Class Reunion Meme!

Randomize your people here: www.random.org/lists/

Rules? Fuck rules! I got a jetpack! *Flies away*
Though there is one rule: Put yourself in the slot you think describes you the best.

HUGE WHOPPIN' DISCLAIMER: Don't take what I say in this journal seriously. It's all in good fun and anything that may seem offensive is most likely meant to be sarcastic. But if you do get butthurt, send me a hate message. I'd be happy to read how you want to shove a fax machine down my throat.


1. The Average Student
:iconreturnofthebadass:
I suppose that fits, as far as I know. I ain't a stalker XD If you're an above average student then I claim no actual opinion towards the matter.

5. The Popular Girl/Guy

6. The Weirdo
:iconxelin-hedgehogx: Swedish people ARE weird... Says the Finn who dives into sub-zero temperature waters to warm up a bit.

7. The Party Animal
:icondjfrostyflame-animz: Well, if it was to be anyone, it's got to be the guy with the most fitting name!

8. The Hippie
:iconeleganteevee: Maaaan, you know how much time I wasted on this journal? Like... A lot, maaaaaaan...

9. The Bad Boy/Girl
:iconpalooka120: I cannot say I didn't see this coming XD

10. The Emo
:iconumbreoniswatching: Put that knife away!

11. The Grade-A Student
:iconstarthezorua: Good for you, Star! ^^

12. The Ladies' Man/Skank

13. The Antisocial One
:iconzerozwarrior: Why are you still hiding in the corner there!

14. The Teachers' Pet
:icondudeanime21: Bringin' apples to school every day!

15. The Phone Girl/Guy
:iconxcaffineaddictx: Focus on the algebra, dammit! XD

16. The Artist
:iconstellathefox26: Of all the people!

17. The Dumb Hot Girl/Guy
:iconshakura15: I blame randomizer! Don't kill me!

18. The Ugly Duckling
:iconseldomblood: I still blame the randomizer!

19. The "Amnesiac" (Forgets all of their assignments)
:iconzerocyanx: I seriously have a hard time even remembering when my exams are sometimes XD

20. The Class President
:iconthedemoncj: We... Are officially fucked XD

So yeah, that's something I came up with in my spare time, trying to avoid last minute German studies because I'm a blithering idiot. Also, I'm nuts. See ya!

Greetings, ladies, gentlemen and all in between! I am ZeroCyanX, but please call me Will. I am pleased to meet you all and I am equally pleased that you have stumbled upon my deviantArt page. If you are feeling generous, please click the +Watch button up there and you can see whatever artwork or journals I might submit in the future.

I am a dedicated Pokémon fan, which is going to show in my art in the near future. I enjoy both the causal and competitive aspect of the games, I don't particularly like the anime, I haven't read the manga, but the games are what keep me rooted with the franchise. I also love other franchises like Sonic, Megaman, particularly the Zero series, Ratchet & Clank, Sly Cooper, Legend of Zelda, Super Smash Brothers, Street Fighter and Scribblenauts, as well as some individual games such as Dust: An Elysian Tail and Team Fortress 2. If you are a fan of any of these franchises, hit me up! We'll have a grandle time! Also, if you have a sense of balance and you have a Sonic Fan Character, roleplays are always welcome on my end!

Not that many people know me yet, so it would probably be a good idea to give some light into the matter. Just who is this William Taylor?

-I am an only child, born to an older-than-average couple with a 14-year age gap. Both my parents were over 35 when I was born, my father was about 48. It was strange at first, but eventually I learned to accept it.
-My absolute favorite franchises are Pokémon, Legend of Zelda and Super Smash Bros.
-My favorite Pokémon game is Pokémon Platinum.
-I am the last person to know about anything game-related, despite being a huge video game fan.
-Both my parents are very skeptical of video games, making it difficult to pursue a gaming career for me.
-I wish I was more popular so I didn't have to feel inferior compared to all my internet friends.
-I am a fanatic of Chinese and Greek mythology.
-I have a YouTube channel but I'm soon moving to a new one to make video game countdowns and Pokémon-related content.
-My favorite Pokémon is Umbreon.



-I hate event Pokémon and Shiny Pokémon because they have fake value. If you want a further explanation, ask me.
-The only two video game couples I support are ZeroXCiel and Silvaze.


(Couldn't find a ZeroXCiel fan button. If someone has made it or could make one, I will love you forever. Not romantically, though.)

-I don't favorite sexual material for everybody to see.
-I think patriotism is stupid. If you want a further explanation, ask me.
-I like disturbing Pokédex entries.
-I have a knack for languages. If anyone wants to speak any Swedish, German or Spanish with me, I'm open to it.
-if you're interested in Finland, ask me. I'd be glad to tell you more.
-I have three Sonic fan characters, one of each alliance: hero, neutral and villain.
-I love British, self-satirizing humor.
-I think MLP is cute, though I don't consider myself a brony by ANY definition of the word.



-I like some Vocaloid artists, particularly Megurine Luka.



-I think Knuckles' design change in Sonic Boom is awesome.
-I think Blockade Entertainment screwed up Murray for the Sly Cooper movie.
-I kill snipers in Team Fortress 2 in my spare time.
-I refresh my inbox every five seconds.
-This text is going on for too long.

Now for the rest of what I'm a fan of:
