    The Pokemon Restriction Tournament

    Post by SilentVerse on Tue Aug 10, 2010 12:32 pm

    First topic message reminder :

    ]
    The Pokemon Restriction Tournament


    Welcome to the Pokemon Restriction Tournament! In this tournament, your opponent will get to choose which Pokemon you have to use for the Round and which Pokemon you will not be able to use for the rest of the tournament.

    This tournament will probably be around an 8 or 16 man tournament, depending on how interested people are in this concept. Signups will also be First Come, First Serve.

    Standard Rules:

    * Evasion Clause - Moves that boost your evasion (such as Double Team and Minimize) are banned.
    * Sleep Clause - Only one Pokemon may be asleep at a time on your team (Rest can still be used if one of your Pokemon is asleep). For example, if a Breloom used Spore on one of the opponent's Pokemon, the Breloom cannot use Spore on another Pokemon.
    * Freeze Clause - Only one Pokemon may be frozen at a time on your team (Note: this rule is hard to enforce if you're playing on wi-fi)
    * OHKO Clause - OHKO moves (such as Fissure and Sheer Cold) are banned.
    * Self-KO Clause - If a person's last Pokemon uses a sacrificial attack (this includes Explosion, Selfdestruct, Destiny Bond, etc) on your last Pokemon and your last Pokemon faints, the the person who used the sacrificial attack loses.
    * Species Clause - Only one of each kind of Pokemon is allowed on each team (for example, you are not allowed to have two Blisseys on one team).
    *No Hacks - Self explanatory. If anyone is caught using hacks, they will immediately be kicked out of the tournament, no questions asked.


    Other Rules:

    *Before the match, your opponent will get to choose 3 Pokemon from each tier to ban you from using. These Pokemon will remain banned for you throughout the tournament. These Pokemon choices will have to be PM'd to me, where I will record them before sending the Pokemon choices to you.
    *Before the match, your opponent will also be able to choose 1 Pokemon from each tier that you will have to use during your match with said opponent. These Pokemon choices will also be PM'd to me so I can make sure your opponent follows your choices.
    *Before you battle, your teams must be PM'd to me so I can make sure you're following the rules.
    *State whether you won or not in this thread. Your opponent must confirm their victory or loss as well. In the case of a dispute, the match must be redone OR both players will be kicked out of the tournament.

    The Tiers:

    OU - http://www.smogon.com/dp/tiers/ou and http://www.smogon.com/dp/tiers/bl
    UU - http://www.smogon.com/dp/tiers/uu
    NU - http://www.smogon.com/dp/tiers/nu

    Edit:

    Any Pokemon not in these lists cannot be used. This includes things such as Arceus, Giratina, Darkrai, etc. However, some legendaries aren't banned.


    Battles can be done on wi-fi, but they can also be done on Pokemon simulators such as Shoddy Battle and Pokemon Online. Please note that these Pokemon simulators will make things much easier for you and your opponent, as you won't have to spend time getting your perfect Pokemon, and instead you can spend time focusing on team building. These simulators also have the ability to save the match log, so in the case of a dispute, I can simply get the log from one of the players and see who is telling the truth.

    Signups:

    1. FCSNAKE
    2. choas312
    3. hero44
    4. ShadowMario
    5.
    6.
    7.
    8?. Hydrocannon2727
    (9).
    (10).
    (11).
    (12).
    (13).
    (14).
    (15).
    (16).

    Round 1 / Semifinal Matches

    Hydrocannon vs hero44
    ShadowMario vs FCSNAKE

    Winners will be bolded.

    Round 1 / Semifinal Deadlines

    Pokemon choices must be sent in by Tuesday, August 24, 2010.
    Your team listing must be sent in by Tuesday, August 31, 2010.
    Matches must be completed by Tuesday, September 14, 2010.

    The Prizes:

    1st:
    Calm Nature / Trace
    - Growl

    Edit: Since there are only 4 people participating in this tournament, there will only be one prize. Sorry!

    Well, I did hear that Salamence only needed two sets to be completely unpredictable (one set that simply abused high power Dragon moves, the other using Dragon Dance). Also, I'm not too sure what you mean by your second sentence. They weren't really afraid of them, they just felt that it was overpowered. Smogon doesn't ban legendaries immediately either, because some legendaries (such as the aforementioned Articuno and Entei) really aren't that great.

    3 more people are needed for this tournament to start!

    No, you can use wi-fi. I personally would think it would be easier to use the Pokemon simulators, but eh, it's your choice.

    Well, the Pokemon simulators are basically like playing a real Pokemon battle, except without animations. It's also a lot easier to change teams and stuff around, which is why I recommend it for this tournament.

    Like I said, they aren't afraid of battling them. It's just that Smogon found they were too hard to deal with.

    Alright, since people haven't been joining in the past few days, I think I'll let the tournament start on Saturday. If we still don't have 8 people by then, I guess we'll do a mini tournament with the people we have signed up currently. Also, the people who registered will soon be PM'd to confirm that they are still interested in participating in this tournament.

    @FCSNAKE: Why do you think you can't download them?

    Alright, this tournament officially starts now! ShadowMario, hero44, FCSNAKE and Hydrocannon are participating. Choas312 hasn't been on much recently, and hasn't responded to my PM yet, so I'll wait until Sunday for him to respond. Anyways, the matches are:

    Hydrocannon vs hero44
    ShadowMario vs FCSNAKE

    All of you have until Tuesday to PM me what Pokemon you want to ban your opponent from using and what Pokemon you want to force them to use.

    Hey just for heads up, I'll have to use a simulator, since I don't have Wifi at the moment. As for Pokemon, it's gonna be tough, but I'll work on a team. If you can, post the banned Pokemon, unless it's part of the challenge, which is fine with me.

    Okay, since I think this is going to be an issue, I have added a new rule in the OP. Please look at it, because it's going to matter for this tournament.

    Uh, Pokemon Online looks better, so use that. I think they're fairly safe, though you probably shouldn't click any links people post on the main chat in case they're viruses or something.

    So uh, since you all of you still haven't PM'd me the Pokemon you want to stop your opponent from using and the Pokemon you want them to use (except for Hydro, but he still has more to choose), I'm extending the deadline for these choices to Saturday. Remember, you can stop your opponent from using 9 Pokemon (3 from each list) and can force them to use 3 (1 from each list).

    Each of you were supposed to choose which Pokemon, so you were supposed to PM me. I guess if you guys don't send me your choices by Tuesday though, I'll just have to randomly pick the Pokemon for you guys.

    All that I want, is just those stupidly annoying Status Pokemon that make it impossible to attack, like Venemoth and Venasaur.
