The SONM Pokéforum Tournament #1 [I won oops]

Post by Dix » Sat Jan 24, 2015 2:07 pm

(Just going to note that if someone else already had this planned then I apologise, and feel free to take this down.)

So what with SONM now a bit more firmly established, and with Xeno's tournament now completed. The Pokéforum has become a barren wasteland of nothingness. However. Hovering in the distance, a shining light glimmers its way through the clouds. A new challenge has dawned upon the SONM Pokéforumers, only this time it's every man for themselves.

WELCOME TO THE SPORADIC POORLY ORGANISED TOURNAMENT THAT HAPPENS EVERY NOW AND THEN WHEN THINGS GET BORING AND STUFF.

Image


That's right, it's that time again. The ONM Pokéforum Tournament ran through, with 14 different victors, and now SONM will continue this tradition in it's new hometown.

A couple of things to note first of all:

- The battles will be contested on Pokémon Showdown as this is the easiest way, it's convenient for all involved and Pokémon doesn't have the hype it used to have here for people to breed teams specifically for the tournament. So it will be held on simulators exclusively unless the 2 players competing wish to play via console.

- After you have battled, please post your replays to the thread so the results can be verified, and the battles can be archived for those who wish to follow the tournaments action.

The rules:

THIS IS BEING CONTESTED IN OU

I've never played Pokémon competitively before in my life, but don't know where to start?

You can go to this thread if you wish where I have constructed a fairly brief look at competitive play, how to teambuild and what to expect.
If you just want to have fun with it, I suggest using http://pyrotoz.com/ and clicking on tiers and setting it to 'OU'. Then just click randomise and you can export that team instantly to Pokémon Showdown. Alternatively you can also choose from a few premade teams on there also.

How do I battle?

The battles will be contested on the website: http://play.pokemonshowdown.com/
On this website you can make an account, and make teams very easily through their teambuilder, and all the information will be saved through cookies.
To challenge your opponent, find out what their username is, and then left click on their name and challenge them to the format 'OU'.


What Pokémon can I use?

The tournament will be held under standard Smogon rules (OU). Therefore, the Pokémon you may choose from are listed here: http://www.smogon.com/dex/xy/pokemon/
You may not however use any Pokémon that are listed under Uber or AG. This means that the following Pokémon are banned from use in the tournament, as well as Mega Rayquaza.

Play restrictions:

- Endless Battle Clause: Players cannot use any moveset on any Pokémon capable of intentionally causing an endless battle. Thus:
A Pokémon may not carry Recycle and hold a Leppa Berry in conjunction with Heal Pulse and Milk Drink, Moonlight, Morning Sun, Recover, Roost, Slack Off, Soft-Boiled, or Wish.
A Pokémon may not hold a Leppa Berry while carrying Recycle and Pain Split.
A Pokémon may not hold a Leppa Berry while carrying Recycle and Fling.


- Evasion Clause: Players cannot use the moves Double Team or or Minimize.

- Moody Clause: Players cannot use a Pokémon with the Moody ability.

- OHKO Clause: Players cannot use the moves Fissure, Guillotine, Horn Drill, or Sheer Cold.

- Sleep Clause: Players cannot induce sleep to more than one Pokémon on the opposing team at the same time.

- Species Clause: Players cannot have two Pokémon with the same Pokédex number on the same team.

- Swagger Clause: Players cannot use the move Swagger.

- Baton Pass Clause: Players cannot have more than one Pokémon with the move Baton Pass.

What if a rule is broken?

This is what the replays are for. If a rule has been broken or you're not sure, post your worries on the same post as the replay and I will adjudicate and make a decision based on the evidence you provide. If I only have your word, I CANNOT make a proper decision, so I will have to just go by the result.



NOW THEN, if you wish to sign up. Simply post saying you want in, and we'll go from there.

REMEMBER TO STAY FAIRLY ACTIVE WHEN YOU ENTER AND IF YOU DON'T WANT TO PLAY ANYMORE POST IN THE THREAD RATHER THAN GOING INACTIVE, THAT WAY THE TOURNAMENT CAN RUN FAR MORE SMOOTHLY.

I don't hate Smogon. I hate how it's ran, and some of the decisions they make. Overall they aren't too bad.

Just so it's clear, I'm not limiting this to 16. If we get enough people I'll push for 32.

If spaces need filling I can ask Duncey if he wants in, might be able to rope in a few others from elsewhere around the internet as well.

I'm guessing it's OU since it says "set it to OU" or whatever in the OP at least twice 9.9
