The Semi-Mono-Type Tourney (Returns!)
« on: August 03, 2013, 01:02 »
Following the moderate success of the last tournament, I've decided to give a shot at reviving my most popular tournament that I used to run years ago. Here's the breakdown for the rules of this tournament:

-Battles must be run on Pokemon Showdown, and will be best two out of three
-You must choose only one type, and 5 of your Pokemon must be of that type. The sixth Pokemon can be of any type, and dual-types are allowed in both cases.
-6v6 Singles (A team of up to six Pokemon may be entered, and the battles will be conducted in a 1v1 playstyle)
-Team Preview (this isn't something you can really control, but I'm stating it just to be safe)
-Species Clause (No more than one Pokemon that share the same species name can participate in a team. This means that even alternate forms, such as Rotom, cannot be on the same team as well)
-Sleep Clause (No more than one opposing Pokeon can be put to Sleep by one of your Pokemon at a time. If they use a move to put their own Pokemon to sleep, this does not activate Sleep Clause)
-Evasion Clause (no moves that raise Evasion, such as Double Team, may be used)
-Freeze Clause (No more than one Pokemon on a team can be frozen. This is enacted without control)
-The following abilities are banned for this tournament: Sand Stream, Drizzle, Drought, Snow Warning, Swift Swim, Chlorophyll, Sand Rush, Sand Veil, Snow Cloak, Moody
-The following Pokemon are banned:
  • Arceus
  • Blaziken
  • Darkrai
  • Deoxys (all forms)
  • Dialga
  • Excadrill
  • Genesect
  • Giratina (both forms)
  • Groudon
  • Ho-Oh
  • Kyogre
  • Kyurem (White and Black forms only)
  • Landorus (Genie form only)
  • Lugia
  • Manaphy
  • Mewtwo
  • Palkia
  • Rayquaza
  • Reshiram
  • Shaymin (Sky form only)
  • Thundurus (Genie form only)
  • Tornadus (Therian form only)
  • Zekrom

Remaining types:
Normal
Grass
Fire
Water - f3raligatr
Electric
Psychic - Робин
Dark - Dracowrath632
Ghost
Bug
Steel - ShinyBlaziken2000
Rock
Dragon - Liam
Ice
Ground - Richard and Blaziken
Flying - JSM
Fighting - Inferna
Poison

As for how many entrants I'll allow... I'm going to see how many people are interested first. I used to allow 16, but I don't think we have that many people around and interested in battling, so I'll be allowing entrants for a while.

Round One Matchups!:

-ディック vs. Inferna
-Richard and Blaziken vs. Reptile™
-ShinyBlaziken2000 vs. Dracowrath632
-Liam vs. JSM

I know your wild card. >:D

Question: If I like the shiny coloring, can I use it on my pokemon?

Edit: I used Smogon and built my team

Shinies are fine on any and every Pokemon if it tickles your fancy.

Thanks, I know it was a pointless and dumb question, but some of the shiny colors look better, and my team may not be good because i'm a first time competitive battler.

I'm assuming we will be allowed to change our teams between matches? :police:

I knew there was something I was forgetting. You may change your team between rounds, but not matches. So after defeating an opponent at least 2/3 times and moving on to the next round, it can be changed, but let's say you lose the first match of the first round, you cannot change your team for the second round of that match. Make sense?

^ I'll keep my team the same, too much headache to change it. And, no. Please fix it, from what I read, your contradicting yourself.

Yay! Chloe's back!

Can't decide between fighting/flying =/
I think I'll go for Flying. I think that could have some interesting versatility.

Hey, maybe we can get some (more, if Liam counts, and I think he counts) of the moderators or admins to join us, if we have trouble finding people.

I don't count as a mod, I just decide who's allowed in PLC.

Looking forward to the tournemant, need to plan my team.
