Ok, I have no idea why there hasnt been one of these at smogon yet, but I am gonna host a DP wifi tournament that isnt confined to one day. So for those of you unfamiliar with how things are normally done around here.. I will post pairings and a deadline. Then it is up to you to organise with your opponent a time to battle. And you post results when you are done! This tournament will be a little different, because there will be teams. I am aiming for 16 teams of 4. So you will need to get together with 3 of your friends and nominate one of you to be the captain, and think up a team name, and then post in a sign up thread, which will be a different thread to this one. I will put up sign ups on Sunday Night New Zealand time. This is to give you a chance to organise a team, and also train a pokemon team. The purpose of having teams with captains is for them to run substitutions, to help deal with people who are not active and crap. Once you get substituted out of the tournament you cant come back in, blah blah. The tournament will be single elimination. Every battle you win, your team gets a point. You will not be paired with people from your own team. Once there is only one team left, the tournament ends. If those players want to play for an individual title maybe they can sort something out I dunno.. The point of this tournament is to give people an oppourtunity to battle in a more serious situation than a random match.. If I feel people are acting in a way contrary to the spirit of the tournament I will have no hesitation in disqualifying them! Ok the battling rules will be! Sleep Clause Species Clause Self-KO Clause OHKO Move Ban Evasion is legal as long as you dont baton pass it. The following Pokemon are banned: Mewtwo, Mew, Lugia, Ho-oh, Latios, Latias, Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, Deoxys (all forms), Palkia, Dialga, Giratina, Darkrai, Shaymin, Arceus (all types), Wobbuffet. No Sharking! Ok so I am hopefully gonna have a bunch of people to help me judge this. Basically we will judge it by trading for the pokemon in question and looking for any evidence they are sharked, then trading back.. Dont worry, the people doing this will be extremely trustworthy.. Though, I dont know who they are yet, if anyone is keen to offer to help posting in this thread would be nice. K, so the point of this thread is to give you guys some warning, and a chance to bitch about my rules, to have a place to organise your teams (I will make a list of unteamed interested players maybe), and to volunteer to help with disputes.. Me and Lords are gonna be doing this now, it would be cool to have someone from europe helping, but also people to help check pokes for sharking! I made an irc channel #tournament on IRC.Dejatoons.Net I strongly recommend downloading an irc client (try www.mirc.com ), or using the Serebii.net java chat and joining this channel while online during this tournament.. Probably activity will be judged on activity in that channel, so if you end up not getting a match done, and you havent been in this channel, you can probably expect to get DQed.
