Final Points Totals for this Cycle:

Kitten Milk - 580.5
Estarossa - 558.5
467 11 11p - 677.5
Codename Magnum - 604
JustFranco - 784.5

After a careful inspection of all factory assets, it would appear as though JustFranco and 467 11 11p have made it to the Factory Employee of the Century board!

JustFranco score: 784.5
467 11 11p score: 677.5



HERE IS WHAT HAPPENS NOW:

1.
To determine who gets awarded the fabled asterisk (*), you two must fight using all 6 factory mons. The winner receives an asterisk on the board (both of you still make the board). Try to get this fight done as soon as possible (I mean you don't even need to teambuild!)
2. Both JustFranco and 467 11 11p must submit a jangy set for a UU legal mon (anything UU to ZU) to the hosts BigFatMantis and Crushy Stuff , as this will be one of the sets to be used for the next battle period.
3. If you are too lazy to make jangy set, then just select a jangy pokemon and force the hosts to come up with a useable set for it.

GOOD LUCK!

CYCLE #7

Create a UUBF7 alt (e.g. UUBF7 MantisCrushing) and post below to participate! (e.g. "My alt is UUBF7 MantisCrushing and I will use the unstoppable Azelf imo").

Greetings all Factory Employees, Factory Newbies, Factory Champions, and Factory Whistleblowers. We have churned out some our greatest Factory Creations this Cycle for all of you to choose from! Behold!

Angry Lakitu (submitted by 467 11 11p ) (worth 15 points)
:ss/Thundurus:
Thundurus (M) @ Power Herb
Ability: Defiant
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Bulk Up
- Wild Charge
- Fly
- Knock Off
Synopsis: The Spinys have merged together on Lakitu's face, making him angrily defiant and eager to Knock Off whatever nonsense shows up on the field. With a single Bulk Up and a bad Krook switch, suddenly this cloud is a force to be reckoned with. And who needs to waste turns when you can fly real high with a Power Herb on!

Spider-band (submitted by JustFranco ) (worth 18 points)
:ss/Araquanid:
Araquanid @ Choice Band
Ability: Water Bubble
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Liquidation
- Leech Life
- Sticky Web
- Toxic
SYNOPSIS: Part offense. Part support. All in the Band. Do not underestimate this spider or else the bites will leech your very soul away from you. Your foe will be left guessing what kind of spider this really is - it hits too hard. But it drops webs. And it has Toxic. Something is not right here....

The Immortal Azelf (Worth 21 points)
:ss/Azelf:
Azelf @ Kee Berry

Synopsis: Arceus is dead, and Azelf has arisen. You will never lose a beat once you set this up, and when your enemy thinks they are finally home safe, Azelf will kiss them goodnight and drain their last remaining lifeforce, restarting the cycle while growing even stronger. Soon the entire world will be at its knees...

Reversal of Fortune (worth 24 points)
:ss/Heracross:
Heracross @ Salac Berry
Ability: Moxie
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Swords Dance
- Endure
- Reversal
- Flail
Synopsis: Life is hard. It throws you many curveballs, and you have to keep on taking it waiting for something better. That is why, deep down inside, Heracross symbolizes our life struggle. It must remain strong with its Swords Dance so it can be ready for anything, and then endure the chaos to set itself up for a Reversal of fortune afterwards. And if it gets too hard, we can always Flail away and hope for the best. Just don't run into ghosts.

Fate Flipped Upside-Down (worth 28 points)
:ss/Sharpedo:
Sharpedo @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Speed Boost
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature

SYNOPSIS:

CHOOSE YOUR CHAMPION (OR CHAMPIONS) AND SIGN UP BELOW TO PARTICIPATE!

Cycle 7 will end on Monday, May 3, 2021 @ 11:59 GMT-5.


Rules Refresher:

HOW TO PLAY:

  • STEP 1: Post here for the Battle Period (usually about a week) with a UUBF alt (e.g. UUBF1 Mantoise)
  • STEP 2: Select the Pokemon from the list of 6 that you will be using with that alt to ladder (e.g. "I am going to use that slammin' jammin' Pyukumuku and the high flyin' Emolga set")
  • STEP 3: Build a team to ladder with, using the Pokemon sets you stated you would use. You cannot change anything about the sets. You can, however, change anything else about your team to build around what you have chosen. YOU MUST USE ALL POKEMON THAT YOU STATED YOU WOULD USE, SO DO NOT GO OVERBOARD UNLESS YOU ARE A PSYCHOPATH OR IT WILL BE VERY DIFFICULT FOR YOU TO BUILD ANYTHING DECENT!
  • STEP 4: Go ladder! The higher your ELO cap, the higher your score! BE SURE TO ALWAYS CLICK "SAVE REPLAY"
  • STEP 5: When you think you've laddered enough, post your replay with your Peak Ladder ELO score to confirm.
  • STEP 6: (optional): If you feel like your selections are just not working out, then make a new post, with a new alt, and change the selections for the period. Do NOT use the same alt as before, as your score is determined by what you used.

That's it! SOOOO EZ! You do NOT need to discuss anything you used, all you need to do is play! However, you are welcome to comment on the unique sets of course if you so desire.

ADDITIONAL INFO:

  • Each Pokemon you select to use grants you points.
  • The more niche/uncommon/difficult the set is, the more points to ladder with it. (Example: a set with Earthquake Celesteela could be worth +10 points, a set with Assault Vest Mimikyu could be worth +20 points).
  • Your final score for the Battle Period is your peak ladder score divided by two, plus points you accumulated based on what you used. (e.g. if your peak ladder score was 1556, and you used two combined sets for +30 points total, then your final score is 778 + 30 = 808.)
  • You must always save all your replays, and try not to hide your battles, so we can check to see if you are CHEATING or not. (This isn't super strictly enforced, but do please try to do it)
  • The replay with your peak ladder score is required to be posted to confirm what you used to reach it with your selected sets and there are no excuses for that one.
  • At the end of the Battle Period, the top two scores will be inducted into the Factory Employee of the Century board! Additionally, they will perform a Gentlepokeman's Duel using all 6 Pre-Made Sets to see who will be awarded the ASTERISK* on the board!
  • The two Employees of the Century are also awarded the opportunity to each submit a crazy unique set for the next Battle Period!

this peak is bad and I feel bad but I couldn't build anything satisfactory this time around :psycry:

not much to say about aquara...araqua...whatever it is. it hits hard with water bubble cb liquidation and its got decent defensive typing but it really wants to be able to switch moves.
