Pokemon XY OU Monotype Tournament - STARTING
Aight nerds, I think it's time we did one of these.

General Smogon rules and banlists apply - no ubers, no mega kengas, gengar, lucaro, or mewtwo, sleep clause, evasion clause, moody (ability) is banned, as is swagger(move).

This will be a Round Robin tournament - each type will fight each other *once*, and we'll be doing this on Showdown.

The winner gets SIX - count 'em - SIX pokemon of their choice bred to specification by me.

In here be the pokemon banlist.

SpoilerShow

'aight so I guess I have to lay down some extra rules so the entire thing isn't run over with legendary dragons:

ONLY ONE LEGENDARY PER TEAM IF IT IS AVAILABLE TO YOU.

That means only one (count 'em) one legendary OU or lower per team. You all have choices from your types that don't rely on legendary stats, Use Them.

Entrants
Normal - Acionyx
Grass - Crowstone
Fire - Whims
Bug - Schazer
Water - Granola
Poison - Plaid
Ground - Bigro
Fighting - MrGuy
Ghost - Slorange
Dragon - Garuru
Steel - Amos
Dark - KittenEater
Fairy - Mirdini

Uuuuuh I won't call dibs, but if I could get any one of Bug, Flying, Grass or Ice (top preference Bug, roughly in that order) I could rustle up a team.

I'll try water. Is this straight up monotype or are we allowed dual-typed pokemon?

Also: double battles?

RE: Pokemon XY OU Monotype Tournament
Singles, and monotype just means they all have to have the type in their typing, not that they have to only be of that type.

Right Changes.

Due to the *slow* pace of signups we're doing doubletypes - pick ONE OTHER TYPE - in reverse order of signups.

This means the order of picks goes from top to bottom:

Granola
Mirdini
Plaid
Garuru
Slorange
Felix
Schazer
Bigro

Remember to keep your teams somewhat even in representation of your chosen types! that is all.

RE: Pokemon XY OU Monotype Tournament
Wait so we make two teams, one of each type? Or we incorporate both types in one team?

both types into one team, somewhat even representation (for example - three grass types, three rock types on a grass/rock team, or two grass/rock dual types with two more rock types and two more grass types.)

I can't believe signups have been going on this long and I STILL haven't needed to actually call dibs on Dark Type yet.
And like, I wasn't even really sure if I would join, seeing as how I only have like two people from this forum on my friend code thing and I haven't beaten Y yet.
Is there even... do I have to have beaten the game to participate? Do I need that pokemon bank thing? I've been lost for months.
hahaha i wasted my time on all of you for 8 years.

We'll be playing on an online simulator (the one Garuru just linked), so you don't even need a physical copy of the game to participate. You'll need one to collect the prize from Para if you win though!

If you haven't used Showdown before, hop on IRC and there will be people who can give you a hand.

Right. We're starting.

The match ups for the first round are as follows:

Schazer vs. Garuru

Bigro vs. Whims

Mirdini vs. Crowsy

Slorange vs. Felix

Plaid vs. KittenEater

MrGuy vs. Acionyx


As a note, please create a replay of your matches and pm them to me so I can get the results - I'll keep them to release them after a round has ended.

Yaaay!

Felix, hit me up on #eagletime when you're ready to do this thang.

e: wouldn't it make more sense not to release the replays until the end of the tournament? You don't want people knowing what to expect from your team going into the fight.
