Hey, guys!! Update time:
- The date for the Mega Dragapult suspect tour
has been decided!! It will take place on Dragon Heaven on Sunday, October 4
, beginning at 20:00 GMT (that means 23 hours and 45 minutes from this post!). If you can't make it, there will likely be another tour in the near future testing out the nerfed Dragapult, so you'll have another chance to try out the format in a tournament setting! Apologies for the short notice on this one - we are hosting the tour during the weekend so more people are free, but we would prefer not to put it off for another week.
Dragapult and Recover will both be allowed, and spectating others' games during the tournament is not permitted, as that would give an unfair advantage in the form of scouting. However, we will be reviewing all of the replays after the tour ends (of course! this tour is for research purposes, after all), so don't worry about missing your chance to see the action!
With that in mind, please make sure either you or your opponent saves the replay of every battle!
Depending on participant turnout, the format will be either round robin-style (meaning that every participant will fight every other participant) or double elimination-style (meaning that every participant will fight in a tournament bracket until they have lost twice). The goal is to maximize the number of fights (and the amount of data we can collect) without pushing us to spend an unreasonable amount of time in one sitting.
- In case you missed the edit to my last post, Mega Bisharp
's Executioner is fully working now!
- Mega Vanilluxe
's Cold Sweat is also partly fixed! There's a slight issue with Cold Sweat makes it also
activate under, uh, slightly unexpected circumstances so we knew Vanilluxe was afraid of other Pokémon but now some of them are also afraid of it
, but Vanilluxe itself can set hail or rain on entry as it should! I fixed this one, too, and now it should work normally, messages and all - the next patch just has to go through! (again)
- Still working on making Dust Scatter apply to Stun Spore on Electric-types and Poison Powder against Poison- and Steel-types and on making Nightmare Heart persist through switching, but those two are still playable in their current form, and there are some really cool replays on the Discord
showing how both of them work as they are!
- Also a reminder that voting will close tomorrow at 3:00 GMT (48 hours from the start of the voting phase), and then the winners will be added to Dragon Heaven and we'll begin slate 13! As previously announced, slate 13 will be Mega Luxray
, Mega Archeops
and Mega Talonflame
, and the Discord
is always a great place to ask for feedback on your ideas if you want to discuss before the submission phase starts!
the Dragapult suspect tour has been moved back two hours to 20:00 GMT, or just under 24 hours after this post was first made! I apologize for the sudden change.
