Monotype Sample Teams

Standard Rules and Clauses
  • Baton Pass Clause: Baton pass is banned
  • Same Type Clause: Pokémon in a team must share a type, both before and after Mega Evolution
  • Sleep Clause Mod: Limit one foe put to sleep
  • Species Clause: Limit one of each Pokémon
  • OHKO Clause: OHKO moves are banned
  • Moody Clause: Moody is banned
  • Evasion Moves Clause: Evasion moves are banned
  • Endless Battle Clause: Forcing endless battles is banned
  • HP Percentage Mod: HP is shown in percentages
General Tournament Rules:
  • Identity: I expect many battles to be completed under alts. This can be bad for tournament security, and thus I will make this clear: If I hear any whispers of identity theft (battling as someone you are not) or proxy battling (helping someone else battle through pm) I will not be pleased and I will take severe actions.
  • Scouting: Next, I do not want to hear anything about counterteaming, at all. Do not complain about it. I also don't want to hear about any blatant scouting. There is a difference between "[user] is known for using Fire-type" and "let me follow [user] around all day to watch all his battles since I am his opponent". I expect a lot of the former and none of the latter. I give permission to all battlers to ask any person spectating their battle to leave if they do not want them watching. Everyone will have access to your replays from earlier rounds though.
  • Timer Clause: As for taking long between moves, if your opponent asks you to hurry up, please oblige. If you are doing a damage calc for a key turn that is one thing, but prolonging every move is suspicious and annoying. Don't do it. Furthermore, Battle Timeout is a rule for a reason. If you run out of time, you lose, simple as that. It does not matter what your opponent says. Do not battle if you think you will have to leave mid battle, and instead reschedule for a better time.
  • Disconnections: Finally, in the case of a disconnect, the decision is in the hands of the player who did not disconnect. The options are: redo the battle move for move, redo the battle with the same teams but different moves, or redo the battle with completely different teams. If the battle was without a doubt over, they may also take the win. Any suspicion that a disconnect was committed on purpose to redo a match may be appealed to me, and if I feel this happened there will be severe consequences, don't do it.

Not playing till Friday cuz timezone stuff, so I guess I'll do some more predictions

Jack4Max vs Paleo: Not even gonna make a Rock joke, I just think Paleo's the better player
smub vs Arifeen: I think if I play well enough, I can manage a win, but it definitely won't be easy
Zukushiku vs Waszap: Again, still needs to get vengeance on Akashi
1 True Lycan vs Ghost Cream: Better player, and he's cooler :)
Sabella vs KuraiTenshi26: I think Sabella has the edge here, but who knows what could happen


Also wincon u didn't send out stakataka the GOAT at all in g1, you always find a way to disappoint :(

ok you crit and burned me i wouldve had at least 2-3 more turns to get burn damage, i know at that point we are talking about 50/50's but i was forced into tricking earlier then i wouldve liked because of that. I dont know why you and your fanboys in that game are having such a hard time comprehending this. either way the other two games were pretty good overall gg

Don't really wanna make a mess on this thread, so I'll start off by saying that I have upmost respect for you so no hard feelings about this all, really. Yes you're right about burn damage, I forgot about that so my b. But you're forgetting that the entire situation wasn't going to happen anyway because raichu cleaned everything before this mess, I ko'd 81% of the time on victini with 77% remaining hp (I was modest LO), and latios was at 35 when tbolt would do 38 min. Pokekarma has a weird way of balancing out eventually I guess, either earlier in a game or later in other games.

I'll just drop the topic, don't mean to come across as "trying to get the last word", hence why I'm agreeing with you about the cheese. bottom line is that game 3 was jank in so many ways for both of us and the other two were alright. ggs again :]
