This tourney is to be conducted starting June 13th and will be conducted in a one round a day (maybe 2 for first round) format. Rules are standard and as follows…
-Hacked pokemon are BANNED. This is an honor system but stats outside the norm are easy to detect and will result in a forfeit, loss of your participation prize and BAN from being my friend FOREVER…or not.
-Species clause (only one pokemon of any type)
-Sleep clause (you may only sleep one pokemon on an opponents team at a time. exceptions are when opponent has a pokemon asleep that was self induced (rest) and when the pokemon you are sleeping has natural cure which would remove sleep status on switch)
-Uber clause (for full list see smogon all listed ubers are BANNED)
- Evasion moves are banned for the time being
-OHKO moves are banned (horn drill and the like)
-In case of disconnection a committee (myself and whomever among pinion/gain/white shadow/randomplayerX want to participate) will rule either rematch or outright win. If a player is in a particularly advantaged position and the disconnect seems fishy to the majority of the committee a forfeit will be assesed. The ruling is FINAL and anyone who raises to much of a stink over it will not receive their participation prize.
There will be no seeding for this first tournament however if matched against your brother or best friend or something we MAY float if ALL parties agree to it. Matchups will be determined at random and the drawing will be witnessed by numerous parties to ensure fairness.
All participants will recieve either a male evee with wish on it, a DD larvitar, jolly female gible or male outrage gible. The choice is up to the player. Additionally once the number of participants is final there will be a list of prizes for placing. These will be pretty nice and may include (I must speak with some players to nail it down) a wish chansey, untouched suicine and a baton passing zappy. Current idea is to allow first place to pick from a pool, and then so on down.
So if you want to toss your hat into the ring just sign up with your friend code. Entries will be accepted until about 2 hours before the bracket drawing which will be TUESDAY EVENING THE 12 OF JUNE.
