The VGC '98 Tournament: Round 1

Sign Ups
Round 1

It’s time for a VGC 2011 style metagame with a retro twist. Fight with your original 151 favorites in a modern way!

  • 5th Gen flat battles, Doubles 4v4, Level 50. One Battle, single elimination.
  • Species Clause: A Player may not have two of the same Pokemon on their team.
  • Item Clause: A Player may not have the same item on two or more of his or her Pokemon
  • Self-KO Clause: If a player’s last Pokemon faints due to Explosion, sort of recoil, or faints after using Destiny Bond and brings down the opponent’s last Pokemon, the last Pokemon of those two to faint, wins.
  • Sky Drop Clause: No Pokemon may know Sky Drop.
  • Please use legitimate Pokemon if possible.
    • For those of you who would like to enter the tournament with legal hacks, you absolutely must make sure they are completely battle legal. This includes but is not limited to level / movepool / Pokeball restraints. Making your Pokemon battle legal is entirely your burden, do not ask for assistance here.
    • If your opponent reports you using illegal hacks, you will be disqualified and possibly blacklisted!
  • Wonder Launcher is set to off.
Please note that in the style of VGC tournements, the Sleep and Evasion Clauses are OFF.

Due to the Spring tournament and the difficulty team building and assembling can be for such a new environment, I am going to give you all until May 21st to get your matches in. Don't take that as an excuse to procrastinate! If you haven't scheduled anything by the 14th, I'll send you both annoying VMs to get your match done with. We have a field of 24 to narrow down and I'm not afraid to drop you both if you become inactive!

Also, please save and PM me any battle video numbers of your tournament matches! In the end, I would like to archive a good deal of matches from this tournament to showcase the fun we had with this VGC-esque environment. This could even mean seeing your Pokemon battle on Youtube. Don't worry, your Pokemon, videos, and battle video numbers will be kept secret until the tournament is over.
