"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Then, God created humankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them, male and female he created them.
To differentiate them, He created the colors, 8 colors for 8 Nations. Afterwards, God got bored as shit and left the World for a better place.

Without God, the 8 Nations started to skin themselves alive. To put an end to this madness, the 8 Nations decided to institute the Rainbow League.
By fighting in the Rainbow League, the Nations would decide which Nation would be the strongest, with (almost) no bloodshed. For this, each Nation would need to select a Champion, and send him to the Rainbow League, where he would fight the other Champions.
The winner of the Rainbow League is the Rainbow Champion, and since God left this world, he would be considered by all the Nations, as the one and only true God."

Sega Genesis 1.0 beta

In the last edition, Knuckstrike from the Pink Ozone came out winner and was crowned Champion of the Rainbow League in an intense fight against Syncrasy from the Brown Field, who became a traitor to his own Nation in finals.
For almost three years, everything seemed right and fair, world finally found peace...
However, one day, the ruler of the Color Nations disappeared, leaving behind him an empty alumnus'd throne awaiting for its next owner.
So fight, fight for your color, fight for your Nation, fight for your family, your friends, your Pikachu, fight for those who can't fight themselves, for no one is going to call your motive into question once you'll become the one and only RAINBOW CHAMPION.

  • This is a SM OU standard tournament.
  • Rounds will be best of one and playoffs best of three.
  • I'll be really strict on the activity, and sub out anybody inactive really fast, so if you think that you can idle the first rounds, you're dead wrong. Each round will last either 5 or 7 days, and I'm not planning to ever delay any round so that's onto you to get your battle done.
  • Every player will be randomly given a color, and will have to use pokemons belonging to this color. HERE is the color pokedex.
  • You can use a Mega Evolution, regardless of its color, as long as the normal form belongs to your color. For instance, if you belong to the Red Nation and use Charizard, then you don't break any rule by playing Charizard-X.
  • If you're caught using Pokemon of another color, you instantly lose the battle.
  • You HAVE TO have a "mascot". Thats is to say a Pokémon belonging to your color that you will keep the whole tournament. For instance, Ash is a player of the Yellow nation and chose Pikachu as mascot. Thus, he'll have to play Pikachu at every game ! *You can break this rule if you betray your Nation in the Finals*
  • General Tournament Guidelines apply (
  • Standard Rules and Clauses apply.

You've come too far to give up, your nation's fate is in your hands.

  • Best of Three.
  • Pink Ozone and Purple Sky can now use ONE Pokémon belonging to the White and Black colors respectively.
  • During the bo3 the loser will have the chance to ban 1 Pokémon from their opponent's (you can't ban their mascot though), this ban will only last for one game. For example:
    g1: X (red nation) loses to Y (blue nation)
    g2: X bans Garchomp so Y can't use it. X wins.
    g3: Y bans Charizard so X can't use it, and (if they want) can bring Garchomp cause their ban expired.

I'd like to apologize for two things btw
1- for taking so long, life is unpredictable.
2- shitty ''banners'' were made by myself I know it's not as fancy as they used to be in the past edition but couldn't find an artist ;_;

DEADLINE: 6 days from now.
