Re: The Heroscapers Pokemon Tourney thread

I want the first post to look official, so I'll put my thoughts down here.

Prizes: Someone suggested Zorua eggs. I like this idea.

Banned Items: I want to keep this to a minimum.

Also, I was thinking that, to stop people from only using legendaries that aren't banned and ubers, we could limit everyone to two pokemon that fall into those groups.

That could end up very badly. Even one Pokemon from those groups is powerful enough on a team. I'm thinking that we should allow only Pokemon from Smogon's OU tier. The list can be found http://www.smogon.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=156 <-- there.

However, that list includes one for Kyurem. We can keep him banned, or allow him for the tournament. That can be decided by a vote.

ALSO! We need a definite answer as to whether or not legally hacked Pokemon will be allowed. I'd be willing to train Pokemon for the purpose of battling in this tournament, but I think we should make a decision soon so we have time to begin training.

Re: The Heroscapers Pokemon Tourney thread

The link you gave only takes me to a forum index. What am I supposed to be looking at?

I was thinking of trying to do a flat battle, which would mean level 50 or higher. Of course, the problem there is that it would only allow for 3 or 4 pokemon per battle, which people might not like. On the other hand, not choosing flat battle would probably end in everything needing to be level 100, which would be a problem for people training pokemon just for the tourney. (Time restrictions and all that.)

All of those threads contain sets and whatnot for highly competitive Pokemon. Those are all considered OU, or Over Used.

Pretty much, yeah. The only exception I'm thinking is Wobbuffet (since you need another Wobbuffet to break the Shadow Tag) and possibly Kyurem.

Well, the ones I was when I mentioned the "Two of these only" rule aren't in that list. Looking back, I was unclear, but I meant pseudo-ledgendaries and things like Uxie, Registeel, or Terrakinion.

Re: The Heroscapers Pokemon Tourney thread

I'm participating; my code is 4169 3942 4511.

It seems that the structure of the tourney is currently up in the air; input from participants (maybe an eventual vote) to decide how this should play will definitely be a boon.

My quick, dirty, and opinionated ideas for the tourney:

-I agree with your banned 'Mons list with the added possibility of Wobbuffett.

-I agree with your banned items list.

-I believe that EV training should be allowed, but RNG abuse, Pokesav, and all forms of hacking should not.

-Each participant may use up to twelve Pokemon from their collection for use in any of their tournament matches.* This will help foster variety and would keep everyone on their toes- even if two participants were to communicate their opponent's Pokemon, they wouldn't be able to pin down all of them.

-As for the structure, a straightforward Single Battle structure will work best. If we want to really get fancy, perhaps the semifinal and final rounds could be Doubles...

Spoilers for reasons behind each choice. Beware, it's a pretty thick wall.

Spoiler Alert!


*Of course, if we're doing this, we'd have to have someone who isn't participating keep track of each battler's Pokemon. That may be a bit convoluted in the long run, especially if we have to do routine checks of who used what, when, etc.


AHHH EDIT I missed a lot while writing this essay. Kaiser, most non-Uber legendaries are balanced enough to warrant free usage on them; while restricting them would be nice to encourage variety, it'd feel like discriminating against Pokemon just because they're "rare."

Funny, I haven't actually posted in the main forum for a while. Shame; I really need to get back into 'Scape.

Re: The Heroscapers Pokemon Tourney thread

As for the 12 pokemon idea-That actually lends support to just using flat battle. It takes away the problems of raising everything to level 100 and the problem of swapping out teams. You keep the essential concept of not sticking with a fixed team every battle.

Also, both to compensate for the limited number of pokemon in flat battle (If we choose to use that) and to make Hax less of an annoyance, I propose we make all of the tourney battles best out of 3.

Re: The Heroscapers Pokemon Tourney thread

I won't know for sure if I can participate until the week before the tourney.

I can provide any Pokemon at any level up to Gen 4. Yes, I obtain them through AR, but the cheat only works for level selection and nothing else. If no one really wants them because they'll "hacked," then I'll find something else to give.
