    Pikachimba a Finalist from Havak's Manchester Pokemon event is starting to organise a Tournament @ HMV Gamerbase in London.

    Aiming to roughly set it up in October he asked if I could post on Smogon, to gather up interest and find out what type of numbers would be interested in attending at roughly this timescale....also any feedback will from players would be appreciated in the set up at this event.

    Prizes are yet to be confirmed.

    Battle Rules

    • Battles will be contested under Double Battle Rules.
    • Each player will enter 4 Pokémon into each battle.
    • Each Pokémon will be automatically set to level 50 for the battle.
    • Each Pokémon retains all of the moves that it knew before being auto-levelled.
    • Pokémon that evolve after level 50 do not devolve when auto-levelled.
    • The Pokémon’s stats are adjusted to what its level 50 stats would be.
    • A player’s team may not contain two Pokémon with the same National Pokédex number.
    • Each Pokémon on a player’s team may use held items, though no two Pokémon may hold the same item during battle. Allowed items include held items from Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver Versions as well as from earlier video games, including Berries 1–64. The Soul Dew item may not be used.
    • If a player uses the moves Explosion or SelfDestruct to force a tie, the user of that move is declared as the loser.
    • If a player's final Pokémon uses the moves Perish Song or Destiny Bond, the move will fail.
    • Players are given a time limit of 10 minutes per match, though this will be edited for the latter stages.
