Who here thinks it would be a good idea to have a tournament to celebrate the creation of Pyroak? It would be ether in the Tournaments sub forum or here depending on where those high up in Smogon think it should go. It would provide publicity for our project and be an incentive for some of Smogon's best battlers to try out our Pokemon. Itwill also give me some practice for the another Tournament I plan to run, a Cross-Metagame, Cross-Server battle. If you find this hidden message please don't tell everyone. Here is a WIP set of rules (to send to one of the mods in the Tournaments Subforum) that I came up with: My idea is to have a tournament to celebrate the completion of the third CaP Pokemon Pyroak. I would like to ask for permission to have the tournament in the Tournaments part of Smogon rather than in the Create a Pokemon sub forum as I believe it will get more attention there. The Rules would be: 6 on 6 D/P battles played on the shoddybattle program. -Species Clause: You must use six different Pokémon on your team. You can't have two of the same Pokemon on your team. -Self-KO Clause: You cannot use moves like Explosion or Destiny Bond on your last Pokémon if it would force a tie. -Sleep Clause: You can only put to sleep one Pokémon on an opponent's side at any time. If you use Spore to put one Pokémon asleep, you cannot use it again to put another Pokémon asleep until the first one wakes up. -Evasion Ban: Moves that specifically increase evasion are banned. Double Team is an example of a banned move. -OHKO Ban: Moves that have a chance of OHKOing a Pokémon are banned. An example is Sheer Cold. -Timed Battle must be on. -No scouting other peoples teams. You cannot watch ANY battle of the people in the tournament. Also, to prevent scouting in general, I give every participant the right to ask someone to stop watching their battle (To prevent person X from scouting on behalf of person Y in the tournament). -Also, be sure to follow the Basic Tournament Signups Thread Banned Pokemon: Mewtwo, Mew, Lugia, Groudon, Kyogre, Ho-oh, Rayquaza, Wobbuffet, Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Darkrai, Manaphy, Arceus, Latios, Latias, Deoxys, Deoxys-A, Deoxys-D. Wynaut, Phione and Deoxys-S are not banned. Note: You may NOT use teams from the Weather test that have Lv 78 Kyogre or Groudon In addition to this ALL battles must take place on the DougJustDoug's Create a Pokemon server NOT official (even if nether player intends to use the new Pokemon), and all Pokemon created by the Create a Pokemon project are allowed. Links to Info about the Pokemon: Syclant/Revenankh/Pyroak info + not fully up to date analysis Syclant Analysis Revenankh Analysis Pyroak Analysis General info about the project You should save all logs, but you need not send them to me unless there is a dispute. Pairings will be generated using this as I do not have mIRC so can not use Mekkah's bracketmaker. This will be a 64 player player Tournament but if enough people sign up it may become 128 player. Deadlines will be a week after the round starts. I have probably missed something obvious, please tell me if you see anything that needs changing. As you can see in this thread Tournament Applications are closed, however the Ubers Clash Tournament is in the finals and the World Cup Of Pokemon is in the semi finals so there should be a place available quite soon.
