Default NOVEMBER 2013 TOURNAMENT - Pokémon X/Y Generation Fray Discussion

I have an idea of a tournament to be done around the end of November. How about that one-Pokémon-per generation idea? You must form a team using six Pokémon, each from a different generation. (No, I will not make exceptions to count Sylveon as Gen I, for instance.) It would be standard Lv. 50 battles using only Pokémon obtained in X/Y (as the Bank wouldn't be out yet).

Rules:
"Normal" Lv. 50
Six Pokémon per player
No more than one Pokémon in each generation
Item Clause (No two Pokémon may hold the same item)
Pokémon may not share evolution lines (no Gardevoir and Gallade, for instance)
Teams may not be altered once entered

I think this could be a fun way to battle before everyone starts importing old teams and hacks get mixed in. We might even be able to pull off a second tournament in mid-December if the first one goes over well.

Wow that's early... it's a good thing Super Training is the only thing that matters. This sounds like a fantastic idea, other than the fact that it'd be reeeaaally difficult obtaining specifics without transfer.

Sylveon is most definitely Gen VI and only Gen VI, I don't understand how an exception could be made at all

Hey, it's gotta be before the Bank alters the current games, so I figured it might be cool to try something using only these two.

Given only a month, some folks might try to argue a Pokémon as being in a different generation because a previous form was.

I like the sound of that. Most gimmick tournaments I've tried in the past really never took off, but this one definitely has promise. As it is, I had another idea for one percolating in my head today, so that could possibly be that second one, but it's a secret for the time being~

I like the sound of this!

Would using a Mega count as a Gen 6 Pokemon? For example, can I use Mega Aggron?

Hm, haven't decided if having a Mega Pokémon would be allowed. At least the game limits you to just using one per battle, even if you have multiple of them set up.

In addition, it also takes away that pokemons item slot.
I say we play around with it competitively for a bit before callings bans on the idea. <3

If anything it'll be fun. <3

No, because you have to send out Aggron itself before it becomes Mega Aggron. It might not even use mega evolution at all, just to screw around. Alternate formes don't alter the generation of the Pokemon, only static evolution.

If Mega Pokémon are allowed, they would be of their respective generations. Mega Aggron, for instance, would be Gen III.

This sounds pretty interesting. I have been going nuts over X and Y for the last couple of days and would be very willing to make a team for a tourney like this. Being able to battle before the release of the Pokemon Bank definitely has a nice ring to it.

I'd personally love to do something like this, since I've been itching to do some competitive work in this new system. And if Mega Evos aaare allowed, I may just have something up my sleeve...

I'm all for it, it's just that December is a busy time of me. The whole winter is. Lol screw that, more like the whole year cause of wrestling. But anyways, i'll be excited to watch the Battle Videos and what not, maybe if I'm free I'll participate. But it's gonna be a burden to get my team ready so.. We'll see.

I'm so excited I've been building a team for hours. Even though I've wanted to do this forever the new Fairy type is throwing me sideways. And I don't see why Mega Evolutions should be banned, they were implemented to give battling an edge. It would be such a waste to ban them.

I'm not saying I will or will not ban them...except Blaziken. That thing is banned regardless.

Speaking of which, we'll need to come up with our own ban list because there are no Gen VI tiers yet.
