Welcome to Arcanite’s Contest Hall! We are pleased to announce the sign ups for our Second contest! (Sorry about the delay!) Across the Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh regions, many trainers choose not to battle, but to show their skills off in contests! Famous Co-ordinators such as Wallace, May, Dawn, Zoey and many many more all skillfully combined their pokemon's moves in order to appeal to the spectators. Do you think you will be able to become one of the greatest Co-ordinators? Explanation: To Enter, Competitors pay 2TC. Competitors will enter the first round with one of their Pokémon. They will then use their Pokémon’s moves and abilities in order to make a spectacular appeal! A Panel of three judges (myself, and two others) will judge the appeals, and choose the best appeals! These trainers will then advance to the second round, where they will battle it out in our contest hall! Each appeal will be 6 actions long, in this time you should try to be as appealing as possible. The number of participants advancing to the second round is given by 2^ (Round down (log2(X/4))), where X is the number of participants. For those who don’t understand, the number of participants is quartered, then rounded down to the next power of 2. The Audience will also choose 50% of the second round competitors with a vote. The other 50% is then chosen by the panel myself. (The most appealing will be chosen). Then, the top appeals will advance to the next round. In the battle round, As well as battling to defeat the opponent, the competitors must try to make the battle a spectacle for our audience to enjoy. one of the appeals judges will judge how appealing the battle is, but the audience (Any spectators who are not participating in battles) will be able to voice their opinions in the audience thread which will be set up. (This may, or may not influence the judge). The battles will be reffed normally, with the appeals judge controling the appeals gauge, and posting the changes in appeal gauge after each round is reffed. The appeal of the Pokémon is counted by the appeal gauge, which is out of 100. After 4 rounds, he battle will conclude, and the Pokémon with the highest combined appeal gauge and HP is the winner.
