Participants
- Normal: Ammy
- Fairy: Arcadios
- Flying: Phaeon
- Fire: LM30K
- Electric: Platano
- Water: DigitalSora
- Bug: Dusty
- Steel: Robo
- Fighting: Drago
- Psychic: Ego
- Ghost: Nionel
- Dark: Hanz

Types Remaining
- Dragon
- Ice
- Grass
- Poison
- Rock
- Ground

I think it's time to do another one of these. It's been 3 years.

This League will be open to anyone who wants to join! As per usual, each participant makes a mono-type team with 6 Pokémon. The rules are similar to last time, with a few differences. The rules are listed below.

Since we don't have a lot of active members here anymore, I'm going to try an experiment and open it up to outsiders (members still get dibs on types; after that, it's first-come, first-served). Maybe we'll get more traffic - who knows? Regardless, the Tournament will be hosted here. I want to get 18 people, 1 for each type. I know it didn't work terribly well last time we had guests, but having 4 participants will get kind of boring, no?

We'll be using Pokémon Showdown because it's awesome. In order to challenge someone, you click on their name (in the chat) and then challenge them to a battle. It's pretty sweet, actually.

Anyway...

RULES
Tournament
- Battles will be 6v6 Single Battle
- This will be a Round Robin Tournament - everyone will battle everyone once
- Points will be awarded to the winner, based on how many of his/her Pokémon are remaining (up to 6)
- At the end of the tournament, leaders will be ranked based on their points
- In the event of a tie, whoever won the match between the two leaders will be placed ahead

Team Creation
- Lv100
- 1 Mega allowed per team (the Mega must be of your type once Mega; for example, a Flying-type trainer cannot use Mega Charizard X, but may use Mega Pinsir, although then everyone will know what the Mega is)
- No IV/EV restrictions
- Secret Abilities may be used, except where mentioned below
- NO duplicate team members (this includes Rotom)
- NO duplicate items
- NO Guillotine, Sheer Cold, Horn Drill, or Fissure moves
- NO Shadow Tag, Arena Trap, or Magnet Pull abilities (so no Mega Gengar)
- NO changing moves, Pokémon, items, abilities, or EVs during the tournament (once you start, you're stuck)
- NONE of the following Pokémon may be used: Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo, Mew, Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Celebi, Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Latias, Latios, Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, Jirachi, Deoxys, Uxie, Mesprit, Azelf, Dialga, Palkia, Heatran, Regigigas, Giratina, Cresselia, Phione, Manaphy, Darkrai, Shaymin, Arceus, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Tornadus, Thundurus, Reshiram, Zekrom, Landorus, Kyurem, Keldeo, Meloetta, Genesect, Xerneas, Yveltal, Zygarde, Diancie, Hoopa, or Volcanion

If you're interested, post here with your type and team. Feel free to do spritework again if desired.

I'm going back to Fire. Bug was fun, but I just like Fire better (obviously, if you've seen my blog).

LET'S MAKE THIS AWESOME!

Possible tweak - let me know what you think of this.

With 6 Generations, we could also up the challenge slightly by saying you must choose a Pokémon from each Generation (or a Pokémon tied to each generation). For example, there were no Dark-types in Gen I, but Eevee evolves into Umbreon, so he counts as a "Gen I" for this purpose.

Thoughts?

I could play with disarrayed gens, but it would take more effort, it wouldn't be an optimum team.

I still hear the call of Psychic.

Yeah, I watched this video and thought it seemed kind of cool. Like you said, though, the teams wouldn't be optimal, and that's not as fun.

So yeah, just 6 of the type, then - no gen restrictions.

Anyway, post your teams when you're ready! I'm still waiting on Robo before opening it up to outsiders!

Dividing by Gen would reaaaally limit me too..especially for the first three generations.

AWWWWWWWWW YEAH

...How do I edit that into my top post?

Anyway, with that, I'll be opening it up to other people - I've already had some interest from Backloggery people, so you'll be seeing them here soon!

If you put this into your post: 

<video width="1200" height="160" autoplay loop>
  <source src="http://a.pomf.se/uwssvo.mp4" type="video/mp4">
Your browser does not support the video tag.
</video>

and enable HTML, it should work. I'd make a GIF out of it, but I didn't know how to without crapping up the quality.

 

There's a little surprise in there too, if you keep watching. :wink:

I am not sure I'm here, but certain brothers of mine mentioned that this was going again, so

Hi.

I'll do Flying again, worked out last time I did it (and no infinite Sandstorm to abuse this time).

Hello all. Just joined the site and posted on the intro boards. Looking forward to this tourney! I have used Showdown a lot in the past and really like it. It even works on my Wii U gamepad. XD

 

I'm gonna go with Dragon type! I've been called "Ryu" by many (cause my name, I suposse) and dragon type was always my fav anyways. DRAGON RAGE!!

I hope that means the only Dragon-type move you'll use is Dragon Rage... :dedede:
