While I was unclogging the toilet, I had a sudden idea. What if there was a contest for Pokemon to determine, in a range of bizarre scenarios and popularity, who would be determined to be the most versatile and powerful Pokemon in the Uber tier? So, I drafted up an idea, picked the contestants and, without further adieu, I present to you... The Ubers Survivor Challenge How this will work: The Survivor Challenge consists of three parts: Scenario, Deliberation, and Elimination. Step 1. Scenario - During this process, a scenario, or "challenge", is presented. The community must then determine which Pokemon out of the participants would be most likely to complete the scenario with the most success. There will be a vote to decide who ultimately wins. This Pokemon is granted immunity during the Elimination round. Step 2. Deliberation - During this stage, the community discusses which Pokemon should be, metaphorically, voted off the island. When deciding, look at: the Pokemon's traits, roles in the metagame and impact on the metagame. The goal is not to vote your least favorite off the island, but to preserve the Pokemon that have the most competitive value. Step 3. Elimination - The final stage, this is where voting occurs and the Pokemon is voted off the island and is out of the competition. The winner of the Scenario Round is granted immunity until there is two Pokemon remaining. The Pokemon with the most votes is eliminated, and then the process starts over. The winner of the contest gets a place in everlasting glory and a million PokeDollars so they can buy their own bicycle.
