    As the Pokemon Showdown League hasn't started up yet, and I have a battle fix, I'm wondering if anyone wants to be involved in a mini-tournament on Pokemon Showdown. Winner gets...Uhh...the satisfaction of winning in a contest of forcing virtual creatures to battle until they can't battle no longer. But hey, it's all for fun.

    Battle Format:

    -Battles will take place in the OU tier where you make a team on the site's Team Builder with any Pokemon legal for the OU tier (except maybe Mega Metagross if everyone agrees on it... that thing is a bit overpowered)

    -You are allowed to mix up your team between battles.

    -Other than that, your team is up to your imagination. Whether you make a strong team or make a team of your favorites, that is up to you.

    Tournament Format:

    -Each participant will battle each other at least once.
    -After your battle, click the "upload and share replay" option and link the battle here so we know the result.
    -Wins, losses, and +/- will be recorded.
    -After everyone faced each other once, then the top four records (including +/-) will battle in the semi-finals. Top rank battles fourth, second faces third. Winners battle in the final.


    - @Beaver (Bidoof)
    - @Mike Thunder (The Thunder Piplup)
    - @Y2JCake (Red Velvet Slurpuff)
    - @The ReagMaster (Magikarp)
    - @deth (Giratina)
    - @TheKingSonic (Blue Shaymin)

  7. Also, I don't think MegaGross should be banned. It's not really broken in the standard OU tier. It's only broken in league format because it's harder to check/counter since you can ONLY use 12 or so mons you drafted. Just my 2 cents.

  8. Fair point. Right now it isn't banned unless a bunch of others agree.

  10. I'm aiming for 6-8 people for the tournament, but I'll give it a few days, if we don't reach that range, we'll probably do it as each of us face each other once then the best 4 face off in a semi-finals, and final round (tie breaker may be something like k/d differential *or faint/faint* whatever it will be called).

    Until then, if you find some time, go on Pokemon Showdown and make an OU singles team or two and if you're a Pokénoob, maybe experiment a bit, look up some Pokemon and how they work, and have fun.

    This will be started Friday. As of right now, we will each battle each other once, and the best four records go in a semi-finals and a finals. If there are ties, then it will be decide by +/-.

    If someone joins before then, I'll modify this a bit. Respond or message me to confirm you'll be doing this.

    I'll be adding this to the OP, along with "The Standings." Pretty much as soon as you have a team ready, let the other person know and battle. Post the results (preferably the replay) here and when the matches are done for "one round" we go to the next.

    If you have questions, feel free to ask.
