So with Pokemon Black and White going worldwide in less than two months, and even though the 5th Generation's already got a developing competitive battling scene going, I thought a tournament would be a great way to send off the 4th gen in a blaze of heated battling glory.
If anyone wants to compete or has ideas on how I should structure it (Tiers? Common Sense? Custom Ban List?) please feel free to voice yourselves and let me know.
We'll work on the date once I gauge the interest level, it'll be ending sometime (hopefully) before Black and White launch. I'll provide some prize pokemon and anyone else is welcome to offer some if they really want to as well. (Will work out specifics later of course.)
(PS. This is my first tournament i'm organizing so go easy if I'm messing something up here, Savvy?)
Teams of 6 Pokemon, No pokemon that fit into the "Uber" tier of the widely accepted Smogon lists. Smogon Uber Tier This helps keep out overpowered pokemon from just demolishing teams.
You're allowed 1 any pokemon, even if they're in the same family (So you can rock a Geodude, Graveler, and Golem in a team, if you wish). And 1 of any items. So you'll have to make due without Leftovers on every pokemon (for fairness)
No Hacked Pokemon. Seriously, If you have a blatant hacked pokemon, then that's a disqualification.
Nothing wrong with EV training your pokemon. (Skill is what wins battles you know)
I'm not going to dictate tiering too heavy, but i mixed tiering seems to be the way to go. i personally would prefer to do open to whatever (aside from the ubers that is) SO I'm Setting up a poll and YOU decide the tiering if any.
So Yeah! I want to kick the tourney off sometime by the end of the month, so you'll get plenty of time to train up a team.
Post questions and signups for it so we can get organizing!
Winner: 1 Lucky Egg, and their choice of a rare, event pokemon to be decided upon still
2nd/3rd: Their choice between 2 other legendary pokemon, with 2nd place getting first pick.
