    Themed Tournament

    Tournament Rules
    Registration
    Round 1

    Introduction:

    Welcome everyone to the Themed Tournament! This Tournament will test your ability to use teams which revolve around a certain theme.

    This will be a 64 man OU Single Elimination Tournament. The first 40 spaces will be First Come First Serve. The last 24 spaces will be chosen by me with priority for well-known and respected members. Don't try and PM me to get in one of these 24 spaces, this will ensure you don't get chosen. People who signed up but didn't get in will be put as substitutes for when I need a substitute for an inactive member. The substitutes order will again be on a well-known and respected status.

    HG / SS moves are not allowed this round

    Standard Rules:

    • Evasion Clause
    • Sleep Clause
    • Freeze Clause
    • OHKO Clause
    • Self-KO Clause
    • Species Clause
    • Timed Battle

    Other Rules:
    • Consecutive usage of themes is not allowed, i.e. If you use a Rain Dance team in Round 1 you can't use another Rain Dance team again until Round 3.
    • The winner must send me a log of the battle. I need to know that players have stuck to the 100 'theme points' rule, and to ensure that players don't use consecutive themes. If the winner does not send me a PM or I find they have not stuck to the 100 'theme points' rule, then they will have to redo their battle. I can check with your opponent's to confirm your team, but obviously theres a chance they might try and cheat so its in your best interest to do this. A second log will be required from this second battle, and if the same person didn't stick to the 100 'theme points' rule again, they will be disqualified.
    • Send me your team beforehand(use Export to Text on shoddy Team Builder).

    The Themes:

    Each team must reach a total of 100 'theme points' for their team to be legal in the respective theme. You can go over 100 points though.

    You must have 100 pts from your chosen theme, you don't get 35 pts for a Pokemon with Sand Stream ability on any other team than Sandstorm for example!

    Rain Dance
    Pokemon with the move Rain Dance - 25 pts
    Pokemon with the ability Swift Swim / Rain Dish - 20 pts
    Pokemon holding the item Damp Rock - 5 pts
    Each instance of Water-type Attack / Thunder in a Pokemon's moveset - 5 pts
    Pokemon with Fire-type weakness - 3 pts

    Sunny Day
    Pokemon with the move Sunny Day - 25 pts
    Pokemon with the ability Chlorophyll / Leaf Guard / Solar Power - 20 pts
    Pokemon holding the item Heat Rock - 5 pts
    Each instance of Fire-type Attack / Solarbeam / Synthesis / Moonlight / Morning Sun in a Pokemon's moveset - 5 pts
    Pokemon with Water-type weakness - 3 pts

    Hail
    Abomasnow on team - 50 pts
    Pokemon with the ability Snow Cloak / Ice Body - 20 pts
    Snover on team - 10 pts
    Pokemon with the move Hail - 10 pts
    Pokemon holding the item Icy Rock - 5 pts
    Ice-type Pokemon other than Abomasnow - 5 pts
    Each instance of Blizzard in a Pokemon's moveset - 5 pts

    Sandstorm
    Pokemon with the ability Sand Stream - 35 pts
    Pokemon with the ability Sand Veil - 20 pts
    Rock-type Pokemon other than Tyranitar - 20 pts
    Steel or Ground-type Pokemon other than Hippowdon - 10 pts
    Pokemon with the move Sandstorm - 10 pts
    Pokemon holding the item Smooth Rock - 5 pts

    Gravity
    Pokemon with the move Gravity - 25 pts
    Pokemon with the move Earthquake - 25 pts
    Pokemon with the move Spikes / Toxic Spikes - 20 pts
    Pokemon with the ability Arena Trap - 20 pts
    Pokemon with a move with 80% or less accuracy - 5 pts

    Trick Room
    Pokemon with the move Trick Room - 25 pts
    Base 5-40 Speed Pokemon - 15 pts
    Base 41-60 Speed Pokemon - 10 pts
    Base 60-80 Speed Pokemon - 5 pts

    Mono-type
    Five Pokemon sharing a single type - 100 pts

    Choice Item
    Pokemon holding Choice Band - 20 pts
    Pokemon holding Choice Specs - 20 pts
    Pokemon holding Choice Scarf - 20 pts

    As I said in the last thread, you should know this already, but you have to have Trick Room somewhere in your team for it be a Trick Room team, etc.

    Round 2 Match-ups:

    SilentEcho vs Pirika
    Minato. vs Age of Kings
    mohaji vs cyberzero
    Malfunction vs Flamewire +
    locopoke vs Tyler422
    Legacy Raider vs Blue_Tornado
    supermarth64 vs RIDICULOUS_
    Kaxtar vs Flashstorm1
    Fuzznip vs august
    Keelhauled vs Seven Deadly Sins
    Cracker vs imperfectluck
    Philip7086 vs Taylor
    Coronis vs Frosty
    LizardMan vs _Flygon_
    Gouki vs Kevin Garrett
    Dubulous vs bobtheball4

    I will italic your name once you send me your team. Don't do your battle before both have sent me their team.
    + indicates both opponents have sent in their team - you are free to battle.

    Deadline:

    4th October

    This should be plenty of time to make a new team and get these matches done. IMPORTANT: YOUR THEME THIS ROUND MUST BE DIFFERENT TO R1!

    No more subs!

    So let Round 2 begin!

    Ugh, LR. Well, it took me a lot of time to make a team last round, so I bet it'll take a while in this round too. I'll try to arrange a match when my team will be done.

    Yes, but can you send it to me again, for some reason I don't have it anymore, probably accidentally deleted it. The reason you didn't battle was because RBG never sent in his team so you were put through.
    EDIT: The same goes to SDS and Frosty, you can use the same team since you didn't battle. Frosty can you send in your team again please if you want to use the same one, I do still have SDS's.

    I'll edit this into the OP as well, but since this has been asked I'll answer. You can't use any moves from HG / SS this round since they weren't on shoddy when the round started.
