Round 4 - Finals!
  • The tournament will be decided in a game of 3. Changes to the team are not allowed between the individual matches.
  • The winner must be able to prove their victories with a battle video code (or their opponent's confirmation, if the code is unavailable).
  • Prizes: The winner of this tournament may request a custom banner drawn by either FellFromtheSky or me (Cretacerus).
    The second place may request for a custom banner drawn by the other artist.
The deadline for the games is in two weeks (November 27th). This means you can schedule the date and time as freely as possible.
Standard Rules:
  • Species Clause: A player cannot have two of the same pokémon on their team. For example, a player cannot have two Koffing on his or her team.
  • Sleep Clause: A player cannot put two or more different opposing Pokémon to sleep using attacks that induce sleep to opposing pokémon.
  • Evasion Clause: A player cannot increase their Pokémon's evasion stat with a move that specifically increases evasion. Items or indirect boosts do not break this clause.
  • OHKO Clause: Players cannot use Horn Drill, Guillotine, Sheer Cold, or Fissure in any of their Pokémon's movesets.
  • Battle Timeout: If a player exhausts the timer, he/she loses.
  • Users currently on the Wi-Fi Blacklist aren't allowed to participate.
  • The complete set of Tournament Rules can be found here.
Specific Rules:
  • The battles are 6on6, and will be played at level 50.
  • The battles fall under the Kalos Rules, which means that no ORAS exclusive introductions are allowed.
  • The King: Every player is required to run a Tangrowth on their team. The set is up to them, and can be changed after each round.
  • The Pawns: The other five slots are limited to Pokemon from NU and below (EXCEPTIONS: Mega Audino and Cosplay Pikachu are banned, due to the Kalos Rules). They can be changed after each round. All NU clauses and bans (Baton Pass, Drizzle, etc.) are in place for these slots.
  • Once a player's King is knocked out, that player automatically loses. Whatever happens subsequently in the battle doesn't influence the outcome, so either player may forfeit the battle immediately after.
Tournament procedure:
  • Match-ups will be randomly generated for each round.
  • The battles are best of 3. Changes to the team may only be made once the round has been completed.
  • This is a single elimination tournament, so only the winners may proceed to the next round.
  • In the case of a disconnection, the player who disconnected will forfeit the match, unless the winner grants a replay.
Prizes:
  • The winner of this tournament may request a custom banner drawn by either FellFromtheSky or me (Cretacerus).
  • The second place may request for a custom banner drawn by the other artist.

Final Bracket:
Nelson Tangela vs Loki669

Will the valiant Loki be able to overcome Nelson Tangela's relentless attacks and finally slay the vine-clad beast?
 
What I've learned from this is that banning Mega Audino and forcing everybody to run a Quagsire check creates a format where Malamar not only shines but wins games once the opposing Scyther is dead.
This tournament was fun. Thank you Cretacerus.

Good games, Loki669.
Good games to all my previous victims opponents.

Final Game 1: 99YW-WWWW-WW57-CZZE
Final Game 2: 3K7G-WWWW-WW57-CZPY


Turns out locoghoul was right. (I would have loved to play you. :P)

Alright, I guess that marks the conclusion of this small tournament, and Generation 6 as well. It's definitely been a pleasant experience hosting it not least due to the sportsmanship displayed by all the participants, and I'm glad we could get together some really great users and battles for a rather strange format idea like this. Shoutouts again to all the people who made this possible, especially Hare_vs_Tortoise and LegoFigure11 for helping out with the giveaway during the sign-ups and therefore making teambuilding so much easier.

And last but certainly not least, congratulations to the winner Tangela represent and the second place Loki669! Both of you have earned your prizes well, so don't you forget to collect them. My fellow artist FellFromtheSky and I will be looking forward to hear your requests. ;)
