Pokémon Tournament

by Palkia47 (talk)

Hello everyone! I am Palkia47 (or Packy or MySweetLord or Red Barchetta), and I am here to announce a collaboration Pokémon tournament being ran by the Awards Committee and the 'Shroom! This Pokémon tournament is being done using generation 5 games (Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, and Pokémon White 2) and will be hosted by both me and Smasher (talk).

We are currently set to have two Pokémon tournaments: a main tournament (Single Battles) and a side tournament (Double Battles).

We are also currently set to be using the following rules (AKA flat rules):

  • We will have a set level at LEVEL 50 – this means that any Pokémon over level 50 will be reduced to level 50, and any Pokémon below level 50 will stay where they are.
  • There will be no same Pokémon in a single party – this means that you cannot have two of the same Pokémon on your team; an example would be that you cannot have two Charizard’s on your team.
  • There will be no same item in a single party – this means the same as the previous rule, except with items. No team will be allowed to have two of the same item on any of their Pokémon during the battle; an example would be that you cannot have a Potion on a Squirtle and a Potion on a Caterpie.
  • There will be no legendary Pokémon – this is very self-explanatory. If a list of legendary Pokémon not allowed is needed, then please contact either Smasher or I.

We will be using, for both the main tournament and the side tournament, a best-of-three system. This best-of-three system is a head-to-head competition between two participants in which one participant must win two games (out of the maximum three) to win the “series” and move on to the next round. For the finals of these two tournaments, we will be using a best-of-five format, where a participant must win at least three games (out of the maximum five) to win the tournament.

We will be attempting to use tokens as well for these two tournaments. I currently do not know how many tokens will be given out yet, so please keep watching for updates coming soon on that!

I also currently do not have an official sign-up page just yet. I sincerely apologize about this, but I do plan to hopefully have it up over the next few days, so please watch the forums for that!

If any of you have questions concerning the Pokémon tournament(s), then please contact either Smasher (talk) at his talk page (linked over there to the left) or message him over on the forums or contact me over at the forums as well! Thank you for your interest, or even if you are not interested, then for at least taking the time and reading this!
