    Thanks for Lolkomori for the idea and giving me the permission to steal it. Approved by iss and blarajan doesn't give a fuck if i'd post it or not. Banner by Skylight/Starships/Vivillon/whatever goddamn name she uses. Most of the OP by Lolkomori.


    (I saved the banner somewhere but now i got to look through my whole com to find it D:
    I will edit it in)

    What has the world come to? There are only a few of strong Pokemon left!

    Background:

    This challenge is survival war in which everyone is aiming to “collect every LC Pokemon of which there is only one left.” There is only one of each Pokemon from the LC Viability Ranking’s D-S tier left. To start, these Pokemon will be divided up randomly and distributed to the registered battlers. You can gain control of others’ Pokemon by defeating them in Standard or Unrated LC battles.

    Challenges:

    I am going to start off this challenge trusting the LC tier’s maturity and competitiveness by allowing players to challenge others at any time they want (The goal is to snatch them all). This means that all active participants should hang out as much as they can on #littlecup or post what times each day they are available in the comments below (going on IRC is heavily preferred by most). You cannot refuse a challenge unless you have a good reason. Three days without activity results in banishment. If any trouble occurs from John’ing or reluctance in general, please contact me; I won’t hesitate to remove you, and your Pokemon will go to the tattler. If anything gets too out of hand, I can randomize matchups and this gets a lot more boring.

    When making a challenge, both players are allowed a few minutes to teambuild around the other’s Pokemon. For example, if someone has all Fire-types for some reason, and the challenger has a Staryu, they will need to be pretty creative to beat them All players and their current Pokemon will be displayed below (will be made after registration) that will be updated as frequently as I can.

    Before each match starts, both players will declare what TWO Pokemon of the other’s that they desire (this number might be raised as opponents fall). These are what you are fighting over. After a match, I expect both players to comment on this forum stating who won and what two Pokemon were transferred. I also encourage you to post replays for our entertainment.

    There is an unlimited supply of E-Ranked Pokemon to your disposal. When you are all out of S-D Ranked Pokemon you are out of the challenge.
    (I know they all suck but try to be creative :3)

    If victor of a battle wants an immediate rematch (to pick on easy prey), the loser is entitled to reject the challenge for 24 hours for recuperation/preparation before they have to accept the next challenge.

    Note: Starter Pokémon will be randomnized but if someone turns out too overpowered/weak, adjustments will be made.

    Note: Deino Houndour Doduo Zigzagoon Golett Zorua Tentacool Totodile Ponyta Mantyke Axew Vullaby Dratini Buizel Exeggute Taillow Drifloon Elekid Munchlax Lickitung and Shroomish have all been given out twice. If you own two kinds of the same species you CAN'T use two of same kind on your team. Species clause still exists. You should see the second one as one in reserve.

    Note: Slowpoke and Mankey were just put in B rank because they are too good for E-rank so they are NOT allowed as E ranks. Woobat and Shelmet are banned to be used as an E rank.

    Maybe, I will ask around and see how people feel about it. I actually had this idea myself but was not sure about it.

    Also I did a quick count and there are like 85 pokemon D-S in the viability rankings so the sign-ups would have to close after like 21/22 people?? With none of the Big Ms it would be around 19 for everybody to get 4, which isn't a lot actually :o

    Banning snover/hippo might be a good idea as well, as weather gives you an auto advantage tbh. I've this type of tourney before and weather just ends up making things kinda easy for teams

    We will see how popular this will become. If we run into any of those problems then some mons may be given out twice. (Which is great for balancing imo) And we might ban some combinations of mons to further balance things like hippo+mole or heck maybe even Snover+Spheal and alike.
