Default August Pokemon Black/White Wi-Fi Tourney - Discussion

Even with the closing of the Victory Road Gym League, competitive battling is still part of the community here at Victory Road. And even though there is no auto-leveling in Black and White, a tournament is still possible! This is that tournament! There hasn't been a Pokemon Wi-Fi tournament in such a long time, I figured we need one to get this place into competitive battling and maybe even draw in some new members.

The all important rules of the tournament:

-This tournament will be 3v3, Level 100: Self explanatory, your 3 Pokemon vs the opponent's 3 with your levels being 100.

-Pokemon in the Uber tier are not allowed.
List of Ubers    
Arceus
Blaziken
Darkrai
Deoxys and all forms besides Deoxys-D
Dialga
Excadrill
Garchomp
Giratina (both forms)
Groudon
Ho-Oh
Kyogre
Lugia
Manaphy
Mewtwo
Palkia
Rayquaza
Reshiram
Shaymin Sky Form
Thundurus
Zekrom


-No hacked Pokemon: This includes, but is not limited to:
  • Pokemon made in ******* or other Pokemon generators
  • Pokemon that have moves they cannot learn
  • Pokemon with stats that are impossible to obtain
  • Pokemon that are currently unobtainable (In other words, Keldeo, Melotta, and Genesect are banned)
  • Pokemon found/hatched by RNG abusing

-Sleep clause is in effect: No two Pokemon on one team can be asleep at the same time

-Self destruct clause is in effect: If you use a move that faints both your and your opponent's last Pokemon, you lose

-OHKO clause: Fissure, Horn Drill, Sheer Cold, and Guillotine are banned

-Evasion clause: Moves that raise your evasion are not allowed. This includes Acupressure

-Species clause: You cannot have two of the same Pokemon on your team. You're only allowed 3, so I'm sure you can find 3 unique Pokemon

-Hax Item clause: Brightpowder, Focus Band, King's Rock, Lax Incense, Quick Claw, Razor Fang, Razor Claw, Scope Lens, Lansat Berry, Stick and Lucky Punch are all banned for this tourney

-Drizzle + Swift Swim is not allowed. However, using Rain Dance and having a Pokemon with Swift Swim is allowed.

-Item Clause: No two of the same item on the same team

-Due to how the ability works, having a Pokemon with Sturdy and a Pokemon holding Focus Sash on the same team is not allowed.

-Pokemon with the ability Moody are not allowed for this tournament

Not mad at you, but seriously I thought the red text was enough....

While I don't agree with the Item Clause...

I do believe there should be a Hax Item Clause. Those items are rather cheap and could be rather dastardly in certain situations.

Is discussion about Hax Item clause even necessary? Hax items are cheap, nooby, and annoying, giving the user an unfair advantage. Kings Rock, Quick Claw, etc. should not be allowed.

Any person SUPPORTING the use of these items isn't a fair wifi battler in my opinion.

Well, the Hax Item clause isn't an official clause. But, unless anyone is against this clause, I'll modify the rules to incorporate the Hax Item clause.

Concerning the item clause, I think the use of Leftovers should be unlimited, as I don't see Leftovers as a cheap item to have on your pokemon.
However, one thing I've seen a lot is a restriction put on how many Focus Sashes you're allowed to put on your team. I think there should be no more than 1 Focus Sash per team.

Also wondering, will Drizzle + Swift Swim be allowed in this tournament?

Reun brings up a good point about Focus Sash. I'll put that under the things to discuss for now.

As for Drizzle + Swift Swim, that will not be allowed, however, the use of Rain Dance + Swift Swim is allowed.

I seriously think 6v6. It is how everyone is used to battling and could show they have true talent

Okay, now consider this for a sec. 3v3 is a slight bit different than 6v6. Not only do you not have to spend as much creating for this, but it takes a little more strategy. You really can't afford to be switching or sacrificing nearly as much. True talent lies in how you adapt to the play style, not in how you do in one. I support the 3v3 fully, and I don't think it's going to change before hand.

TEAMS OPINION

I think that it should be 6 vs 6 because I have always battled that way and it isn't that more difficult. Also It gives a large chance to defend yourself from other attackers. An Example would be if a pesky Sigilyph was battling you and you didnt have a rock electric or ice pokemon on your team.

Which is why a 3v3 tourney requires more strategy, like Ditto said. Also, I think a 3v3 would be doing people a favor so they don't have to as much time making a team. However, I will not make any final decisions on the team sizes until more people start discussing. I will open a poll up if necessary.

EDIT: After a bit of thought, I've decided there won't be any discussion on the team size. Because I'm making this a 3v3 tourney.
