Default MATTYBROLLIC'S BI-ANNUAL VICTORY ROAD CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT

Hello people of Victory Road! It's that time of the year again! Time for another VICTORY ROAD CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Like the one held in the summer, the tournament will be held in the OU tier. However, this time around, the tournament will be ORAS OU!!!

This tournament will start on Saturday January 10th, and end on Saturday January 24th.

The style will again be a double elimination bracket open to as many people willing to play! If we get an odd number of players, Kakashidragon will be guaranteed a bye because he won the last tournament!

ORAS has brought us some really awesome new megas, moves and more! So let's have a great tournament guys, and lets determine the CHAMPION OF VICTORY ROAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

-I'm planning to begin the tournament either around New Years or some time in the middle of January. Give me some feed back as to which time is most preferable to you all!

HERE IS THE OU BAN LIST: (M stands for mega) Aegislah, Arceus (all types), Blaziken, M-Blaziken, Darkrai, Deoxys (all forms), Dialga, Genesect, M-Gengar, Giratina (all forms), Groudon, P-Groudon, Ho-Oh, M-Kangaskhan, Kyogre, P-Kyogre, Kyurem-White, M-Lucario, Lugia, M-Mawile, Mewtwo, M-Mewtwo X/Y, Palkia, Rayquaza, Reshiram, M-Salamence, Shaymin-Sky, Xerneas, Yveltal, Zekrom.

Also: The Soul Dew items are illegal as well.

HERE IS THE LIST OF CLAUSES: 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.

I've added a poll for when the tournament should start. Don't forget to vote people!

EDIT: I've made it so that you can select more than one option too

I'm down. I haven't looked at Smogon's OU for ORAS yet so I've got some research to do prior. Also, with new megas, with the fact that some aren't OU, will we still be able to use them? My guess is for stuff like Mega Pidgeot (not looking down on it, it's def a threat) and so on.

Voting for the 10th since the 1st might result inconvenient and the latter being too late. xD

They seem to change every five minutes anyway, surely none of us will be too annoyed if you go outside the restrictions so long as you give us warning . . .

Okay here is my final decision on this... I will allow you to use Aegislash! However, I would advise that others try to refrain from using Aegislash because it heavily checks and even counters a great deal of the new mega Pokemon in ORAS OU making it much more over powered in this meta game as opposed to XY OU where it was debatable over whether it was even over powered or not.

I suppose I'll join. I'd like to improve on my previous standing, and with some tweaks made to my team since then, I'd like to see how I'd fare.

I don't really like Smogon tier lists, and I don't even bother to read about them. Out of curiosity, what would be Pokémon that are unusable under standard unofficial competitive play? (Me, I prefer sticking with the games' "no cover legends for the most part and event-only Pokémon" rule. Simple!)

I guess I'll still sign up, anyway. Double Battles, right?

AWESOME!!! So glad to have you!!! Okay so it will be 6v6 singles styled format. I am on my phone at work right now so when I get home, I will post the ban list regarding the Smogon Overused tier. Once again, thanks for joining

We are usually pretty flexible with these tournaments. They usually last around 2 full weeks which is plenty of time to complete all of the battles. Plus, due to a lot of students being on winter break, many of us will be able to stay up later if need be.

ATTENTION FORUM MEMBERS: The poll results show that the preferred time for the tournament to start is on January 10th. However, because we are running a little low on participants, I will extend the deadline to the 17th if it means we are able to snag more players. If you are reading this, please let me know if the extension would be beneficial to you or not!!! THANK YOU!

I've been playing around with some new ORAS stuff, would be fun to test it out! I'll participate, although I am unsure if I will be capable of doing so on the 17th. The other dates work.

I don't think we've ever had to worry about talking during the middle of a battle during a tournament. If something goes wrong or the other guy doesn't show up, what I've seen happen most often is to leave a visitor message on your opponent's profile.

Nah, I'm cool with the new date. I haven't even been able to trade over my items or other Pokemon yet anywho.

@ Mid-battle talking: I remember me and PhantomxTrainer were both online and talked about the games trolling during the battle by posting visitor messages on here.

Negative, the date has been moved to the 17th.

I'm kinda leaning towards using Pokemon I like rather than going on a pure competitive route. I've grown fond of this one team I've been using on wifi that's pulled through some pretty difficult teams. Not super balanced, but it's a decent team. Yeah.

I've got at least one more Pokémon that still needs training, but I should be able to make it. Considering I'm against you, Matt, the first round, I'm going to lose quickly.

I didn't watch the vid with pianomaster, so I dunno what to expect on the team. Interesting!

Also, I will give everyone a span of four full days to complete your matches for each round. Anyone who does not sign on or attempt to contact their opponent within each four day period will receive a loss for that round.

You're not battling me, brotha.

I suppose I'm prepared. Didn't have enough time to get battles in to test this team on weaknesses, but oh well. Then again, the battles I had were against people with M-Kang so meh.

Hello, everyone! With this new tourney, I hope to be slightly more active than I have been on the forums. And Mag, lemme know when you'd like to battle. It's good to be back!

Messaged my opponent. Just fyi on here in general, I'll be working a lot this week. My only day off will be Sunday (tomorrow the 11th) then after that, work work work. I'll only be available for a very limited time, 4 or 5 hours through the day. That'll be around 3-7/8 PM Central time.

Might make more sense, but I don't mind that much. My team was more of whatever I felt like using than anything that's designed to win anything, it probably won't get very far anyway :P

Pretty much! Part of the fun of battling is trying to make something out of Pokémon you've never used before. In this case I mixed in a few things I did know how to use so that I wouldn't get flattened in eight turns, but hey. If fun wasn't involved, this would probably be called a "chore" instead of a "game."

Also Tara, Reun and Kakashi, get your battles in already! I have the patience of a first grader! (ノ °益°)ノ 彡 ┻━┻ (That was a joke, take your time and be prepared!)

AAAND Ladies and Gentlemen, I am Nytz, here live at Victory Road Arenas checking in on the first VR tournament of 2015! We have seen some amazing battles today, with the crowd turned up to 11, but this is only the beginning. I'm here with the host of this here tournament, Mattybrollic. Matty, would you care to share the statistics of these brilliant trainers? The crowd wants to know!

NYTZ!!! My good friend! Welcome back! I would be more than happy to share some statistics of this tournaments participants! This is by far the most competitive tournament that has taken place since I joined the forum a little over a year ago. With 17 active participants, including most of VRs best, this tourney is destined to have an exciting finish.The previous winners of the last 3 VR tournaments, myself Pianomaster19 and Kakashi dragon, are all competing this time around. We also have staples who have done well in the previous tournaments such as Trees, Reuniclus, GrasspokemonFTW, Dragonite, Sub-Zero, and Tarellethiel. Who could forget the strong gym leaders of the forum like JDxImpetus, and Magmaster12!? We have the man who makes all of this even possible in the admin Cat333Pokemon! Finally, we were fortunate to receive a handful of newcomers, namely Cowboy, Whimsicott, Luchiano, CinnabarPyro, and Twiggy, all of which, barring Twiggy because he hasn't been able to battle yet, I have been impressed with thus far!!! I really love running these tournaments, especially with such great participants. I am really looking foralward to see how this huge Victory Road battle royals plays out!

While that is true, your opponent is Kakashi. I must warn you, the hax Gods seem to favor almighty Kakashi in the most dire of moments, such as when your M-Manetric's Overheat misses causing you lose the match on a 1v1 against Ice type Greninja.

Edit: Also, I got dibs on Pianomaster winning 3-0.

Wow Sub, you called that one perfectly! Pianomaster escapes with a 3-0 victory over Trees! Keep the battles going guys (Looking at Cat and Twiggy)!
