    Themed Tournament​


    Tournament Rules
    Registration
    Round 1
    Round 2
    Round 3
    Round 4

    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 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.

    Semi Finals Match-ups:

    Frosty vs Blue_Tornado
    Malfunction vs Kaxtar

    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:

    3rd November

    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 R4!

    So close to the end, now let the Semi Finals begin!

    Ok, I might use one of my former teams, but I'm not sure. It probably won't take long though.

    It really feels bad that I get to move on two rounds with coin flips, but whatever.

    Frosty vs Blue_Tornado

    I'll pm my team and get in contact with my opponent ASAP. Good luck.
