Project Monotype Ladder Experts [Index]

#1
Approved by Acast and Eien

Welcome to Monotype Ladder Experts!
A new project that requires you to complete a set of challenges on the monotype ladder. Each set of challenges will follow a specific theme which will vary from trick room master, to generations expert, and much more! You'll be given 2 weeks to complete each cycle and in order to complete a challenge, you'll need to win a set amount of battles against opponents with a minimum ladder ranking. Your only restriction is to follow the challenge's theme; Pokemon used, EVs, items, and move sets are completely up to you!​

Rules:
  • You are required to beat an opponent with a minimum ELO rating to complete a challenge; challenges have differing ELO requirements.
  • You are required to have a minimum of 3 wins for each challenge, be sure to post all relevant replays as proof of completion.
  • Battles must be completed on the Monotype ladder on Pokemon Showdown. This means no tournament battles or challenge battles. They also have to be done on the main server's ladder.
  • Your opponent has to have 6 Pokemon.
  • Challenges against opponents also participating in the cycle will not count as acceptable wins - if the opponent's team is not obvious, it is up to the discretion of the host.
  • Please do not copy another challenger's team who has completed the challenge already.

Leader Boards
  • You earn 1 point for each challenge you complete.
  • You earn 3 bonus points for completing every challenge in a given cycle.
  • The first person to complete a set will be that week's winner, be granted 3 bonus points, and have their name in the hall of fame.

This is more of a collage of people getting tricked by lvl 3 pumpkaboo and then getting slaughtered by vileplume, than a bunch of Tr challenge replays

Congratulations to TheAveng92R for completing all 8 challenges! By being the first to complete all challenges, they will be put into the hall of fame with the Trick Rom Master Mk 1 title! Additionally, they will be granted 3 bonus points towards the monotype ladder experts rankings on top of their 3 bonus points for completing all 8 challenges.

For everyone else, you still have the chance to finish all 8 challenges and be granted the 3 bonus points for completing the entire cycle.

There's only 2 and a half days left to get your replays in! Make sure to do so before the cycle is over.

For everyone who already submitted, double check your replays to make sure the opponent's elo is displayed at the end, that they have enough elo to count towards the challenge, and that you actually killed 2 opponent's mons while trick room was up! Any replay that does not fill these requirements will not be counted, and you will not receive completion points for them.
