This is the official signup thread for the upcoming Pokemon Tournament hosted by Rainy Sky. If you have a character you want to get in on this, just post them in here. Those who don't have the required three pokemon who wish to participate will be supplied loaners.

Remember, all are welcome! Experience doesn't matter! Now come and fight for bragging rights and SWELL PRIZES!


No Legendary Pokemon: For those of you that do have them I understand this sucks a bit, but they're just too powerful. It's just another reason why we've got loaners for use.

Three Pokemon a Battle: It might seem like a small number, but I know from experience how long a battle can drag on without a limitation like this.

Be Reasonable: While I'd like to think I don't need to put this here, I'm going to anyways just in case. Don't be a dick, people. I understand that it sucks to lose, but don't just sit there and tank every hit while claiming your pokemon can take it. Be fair about this and we'll all have a lot more fun.

Movesets: You get four moves for each of your pokemon, just like normal. To prevent cheating I'd like you all to prepare your teams/moves and just have them ready. Eventually we'll have an overseer(s) to collect them and make sure there aren't any shenanigans later on. I suggest Pastebin for this.

Specific Rulings:
Now sometimes circumstances get interesting (Like critical Sand Attack). I'm not here to cut back on fun, so if something crazy happens just go talk to your opponent. Who knows, they might love an idea you have and roll with it.

On the subject of Protect/Detect/Etc the move is to be used AFTER the opponent uses their move. It will block the attack, but it takes up your move for the turn and goes on cooldown for three turns to prevent spamming.

Multihit moves are to be rolled for after a hit using 1dX, where X is the highest possible number of hits.

Loaners will be generated using a random pokemon generator. You have the choice of making their moveset yourself, or letting me do it. If you have me do I will do my best to make it as ridiculously strong as possible, but your mileage may vary depending on the pokemon.


Any questions should be brought to the Debate thread here:
or posed to myself.

Prizes are yet to be determined in full, but I'll personally make sure they're good ones. They will be awarded to first, second, and third place. Third place will be determined by a losers bracket and first and second will be determined by the main bracket.

I'll be signing up Adrian and Bren.

Alex will also be there, but he'll be refereeing.

Serena will definitely want in on this, as well as my red themed Demigod Liselotte since she has a few 'Mons.

Uso is in.

He'll need two loaners.

Moto is in. Gotta think of a third 'mon tho.

As a quick aside, if anyone is going to need loaners, please mention that in your signup post.

You've already lost.

Jasmine, Cynthia, and Lilly will be participating. I haven't decided if Misha will be yet.

edit: How will a Pokemon's experience play into this? I'd imagine something like Cynthia's Garchomp could curbstomp something else like every one of Lilly's Pokemon, considering how inexperienced Lilly is to Cynthia. Does it not play a role at all?

Your call, talk to your opponent about it. I know Bren will probably lose his fight for that exact reason. Still, if there's a massive split between new and experienced we're just going to say it doesn't matter to give everyone a fair chance.

The two players talking it out seems reasonable to me, HOORAY COMMUNICATION. In most cases yeah, an inexperienced fighter will get curb stomped by a veteran, but sometimes a newcomer can get lucky and win despite the odds.

Megan, Channeler, and Anthony most likely.

Megan will need a third loaner... and maybe more if she can't find a way to get her pokemon to evolve. Meowth is set though.

Conny might show up but she'll have to use an alternate Team too.

Mirage Master might show up, sweep someone, then promptly get disqualified for illegal movesets.
