For a while now, people have been asking us about fixing the TP requirements, stating that they were too steep and that we should lower them. People have been asking us about implementing Trainer Levels beyond 6 and expanding the spread of our acquisition levels. Finally, though I know it will upset some, we have managed to get round to this. I present to you, the masses of ASB, the new leveling system.

Spoiler: show
Trainer Level 1: Have a Squad Summary
Trainer Level 2: 10 KOs, 30 TP
Trainer Level 3: 30 KOs, 75 TP
Trainer Level 4: 50 KOs, 120 TP, 15 SP earned
Trainer Level 5: 90 KOs, 200 TP, 20 SP earned
Trainer Level 6: 140 KOs, 300 TP, 1 badge (Gym earned), 1 Gym match refereed and 30 SP earned
Trainer Level 7: 200 KOs, 420 TP, 2 badges (Gym earned), 2 Gym matches refereed and 40 SP earned

Rewards
TL1: Nothing
TL2: Mega Stone, 3 extra slots
TL3: 3 extra slots
TL4: Mega Stone, 3 extra slots
TL5: Uplevel slot, 3 extra slots
TL6: Mega Stone, 3 extra slots
TL7: Historic Badge, 5 extra slots

While you will not move down a level due to these changes, you will not automatically level either. SP earnings are not retroactive, so you have to gain them before moving up a level, even if you have met all other requirements.

However, that's not all. We did some thinking. As we thought on it, we realised something. We could restructure how Legend Challenges worked. So we hashed something out.

Spoiler: show
TL4: Articuno, Moltres, Zapdos, Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Celebi, Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Heatran, Manaphy, Shaymin, Cresselia, Cobalion, Virizion, Terrakion, Tornadus, Thundurus, Landorus, Keldeo, Diancie (40 SP)
TL5: Latias, Latios, Jirachi, Uxie, Azelf, Mesprit, Darkrai, Victini, Meloetta, Kyurem (50 SP)
TL6: Ho-Oh, Lugia, Regigigas, Reshiram, Zekrom, Genesect, Xerneas, Yveltal, Zygarde (60 SP)
TL7: Mew, Mewtwo, Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, Deoxys, Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Arceus (70 SP)

Trainer Level 6 and above Legendaries can not be used in Gym or tournament matches no matter what. They may only be used in Contests and in battles between two trainers who fully agree to the use of these Pokemon.

This means exactly what you might think it means. Between us, we have separated the Legends into differing Trainer Levels. At TL4, you can challenge any of the Legends listed as such, for the price given. TL5 gets you access to more, TL6 and so on. We know what this could mean, which is why we listed the restrictions alongside them. Anybody who is currently waiting on the Legend Challenge Queue can PM me with the post in which they purchased their challenge, and they may either pay extra SP in order to upgrade it (provided they have the necessary Trainer Level), or ask for a refund if they paid over the price for what they intend to battle. Importantly, you may only have one Trainer Level 6 and one Trainer Level 7 Legendary.

Naturally, with an expansion to 7 Trainer Levels, we had to do another look over the acquisition levels. I won't bore you getting into too much detail, so here is the now revised acquisition levels for all of the Pokemon within ASB.

For reference, here is a Google Docs spreadsheet which lists all of the changes. We understand that this has left a lot of you having to change your squads. With this in mind, we are enacting a one month amnesty on changing your squads to fall in line with the new changes, as well as to exchange your Mega Stones. In addition, any Pokemon you are forced to drop may be replaced by a Pokemon at the same level as the dropped Pokemon.

It is also important to note that anything you have already gained with regards to Trainer Level rewards, you will keep. If you are currently a TL1, you will retain the free Mega Stone you got at TL1, but it is equally important to note that you will not receive another free Mega Stone at TL2.

In addition, you no longer receive the Badge discount simply for having a badge. Badges only supply you with a discount if you have more badges than you need for your current Trainer Level. For example, if you are Trainer Level 6, possess one purchased and one Gym badge, you will not receive the discount. In addition, the Novice Badge no longer exists, and anyone in possession of it may trade it in for a full SP refund.
