Pokedraft (Signups for Round 2)
Hello all! This is Pokedraft, a Pokemon-themed Forum game based around the concept of drafting Pokemon, training them, and pitting them against each other.

Rules:

Some miscellaneous notes, answers to Q/A, FAQ, etc.:

tl;dr players take turns catching pokemon, player who puts the most pokeballs on the line gets precedence on the pokemon, then you train your pokemon, then battle them for glory and rewards

Credit to Sunspider for providing an easy means of adding sprites to this game!

This game will start with at least 5 players. I intend to start the game 3-5 days after signups die down, assuming we reach at least 5. To join, tell me what color you'll be using as a player (and optionally your Gen 1 trainer type). You can use an HTML code color if you really want to (#RRGGBB)

I would like to "catch all of 'em" please. Sign me up for #969696.

EDIT:
Question 1: Can I pick a Gen 1 trainer type from here?
Question 2: Can it be Cooltrainer? I like to think of myself as a pretty cooltrainer.

RE: Pokedraft (Signups)
And that's five!

With Hunter, we should have enough players to start the first round of Pokedraft.

Seeing as the gap between the last couple of players was a few weeks, I wasn't really expecting this to happen, so I need to review my notes and spreadsheets to prepare to get things going.

As such, I'm going to set the start date for the first round of Pokedraft as November 18th, 3PM MST, or approximately 8ish days from now.

New signups may join until then, and will be part of the first round. Those that come later will have to wait until the signup period for the second round.

Round 1.1: Capture Event

[Image: HunterX55.png][Image: LammarWesley.png][Image: Palamedes.png][Image: Sunspider.png][Image: ThaliaV1.png]

It begins! All 5 players are starting the game, so you all get 10 Pokeballs to start with. And what way to better start than to get an opportunity to use them?

The Pokemon for today's event are:

Growlithe, Fire-Type Pokemon (Claimed by LammarWesley)
SpoilerShow

Geodude, Rock/Ground-Type Pokemon
SpoilerShow

Jigglypuff, Normal/Fairy-Type Pokemon (Claimed by Sunspider)
SpoilerShow

Spearow, Normal/Flying-Type Pokemon
SpoilerShow

Rattata, Normal-Type Pokemon
SpoilerShow

+ 1 mystery Pokemon if you don't like any of these.

Turn order is Sunspider -> Palamedes -> Thalia V1 -> LammerWesley -> HunterX55.

Sunspider: please nominate one of the above Pokemon. Please also provide a starting bid. You must bid at least one Pokeball, though you may bid up to your max. You have 48 hours, or November 20, 3PM MST, to decide.

Everyone else: You may also submit their nominations or a list of preferences early, though you will have an opportunity to review your choice (i.e. you're not locked in) when it is your turn. Once Sunspider has chosen, you may submit bids. Depending on time remaining to the Nov 20 deadline, a time extension of up to 24 hours may be added to allow bidding.


Non-participants, as always, may also signup to join in Round 2, which will start after this round, or after this event as well as the following Training and Battling Events that are part of Round 1.

Oh! Somehow I didn't see this when you posted it originally. I'd like to be uhhhhhhhhhh.... a psychic I guess, since there's no grass type trainer in Gen 1 (and barely any anywhere else!). Color me #34038a please.

RE: Pokedraft (Round 1.1: The First Pokemon)
Do we have to bid at least 1 pokeball, or can we just pass?
Quote

RE: Pokedraft (Round 1.1: The First Pokemon)
You can pass (or decline to bid). Passing is good just because it means that we can move forward without having to wait out the timer, but I can't know if someone is passing without them saying.

RE: Pokedraft (Round 1.1: The First Pokemon)
An aside: you are not required to beat 6 balls, you simply won't be the first player to throw. If you bet 5 balls., the first two balls would be Sunspider's, but then you would get a chance.
