Welcome to the first ever, Monotype Random Battle Tour! No no, this is not when you challenge someone to a Monotype Random Battle. We'll be doing this differently. You will know what type you'll be using but your opponent does not. Think of this as...laddering or being in a tour with a specific type but you and your opponent have no idea what type is chosen for you and you build around the chosen type. The hosts shall determine what type you'll get through /pick. We shall screenshot each pick command we do as proof that everything is fair (yes you will get a new type each round).

Post "in" to join

Rules to keep in mind:
  • Standard Monotype tournament
  • This will be a Double Elimination Tour
  • This tournament is best of 1
  • Matches are all done on Pokemon Showdown (Other servers will not count).
  • To encourage the development of the metagame, and so that everyone is on an even playing field, all matches must have replays recorded. If neither player posts or at least saves replays of the match, the game will be coinflipped regardless of whoever won.
  • Do not change your type that has been randomly picked for you or you will be disqualified.
  • Do not complain about the type you get so don't be upset that you are cteamed or you have a bad type. This is the point of randoms.
  • More importantly, have fun!!!!!!!!!!
Standard Rules and Clauses
  • Baton Pass Clause: Limit one Baton Passer, can't pass Spe and other stats simultaneously
  • Swagger Clause: Swagger is banned
  • Same Type Clause: Pokémon in a team must share a type
  • Sleep Clause Mod: Limit one foe put to sleep
  • Species Clause: Limit one of each Pokémon
  • OHKO Clause: OHKO moves are banned
  • Moody Clause: Moody is banned
  • Evasion Moves Clause: Evasion moves are banned
  • Endless Battle Clause: Forcing endless battles is banned
  • HP Percentage Mod: HP is shown in percentages
General Tournament Rules:

  • Identity: I expect many battles to be completed under alts. This can be bad for tournament security, and thus I will make this clear: If I hear any whispers of identity theft (battling as someone you are not) or proxy battling (helping someone else battle through pm) I will not be pleased and I will take severe actions.
  • Scouting: Next, I do not want to hear anything about counterteaming, at all. Do not complain about it. I also don't want to hear about any blatant scouting. There is a difference between "[user] is known for using Fire-type" and "let me follow [user] around all day to watch all his battles since I am his opponent". I expect a lot of the former and none of the latter. I give permission to all battlers to ask any person spectating their battle to leave if they do not want them watching. Everyone will have access to your replays from earlier rounds though.
  • Timer Clause: As for taking long between moves, if your opponent asks you to hurry up, please oblige. If you are doing a damage calc for a key turn that is one thing, but prolonging every move is suspicious and annoying. Don't do it. Furthermore, Battle Timeout is a rule for a reason. If you run out of time, you lose, simple as that. It does not matter what your opponent says. Do not battle if you think you will have to leave mid battle, and instead reschedule for a better time.
  • Disconnections: Finally, in the case of a disconnect, the decision is in the hands of the player who did not disconnect. The options are: redo the battle move for move, redo the battle with the same teams but different moves, or redo the battle with completely different teams. If the battle was without a doubt over, they may also take the win. Any suspicion that a disconnect was committed on purpose to redo a match may be appealed to me, and if I feel this happened there will be severe consequences, don't do it.

If you have any questions, feel free to message Izaya. or myself.
