New post: Hey guys... seems a like a lot of people are into the March Madness thing. That sounds like a pretty cool idea. So...for today, if anyone wants have a fun battle with me tonight via PBR, just PM me. However, if you guys want in on a March Pokebowl than I'm all for trying to organize it. I may need a little help considering I'm new to the board, but I think some fun categories would be (and you can enter as many as you want):
All (ice, bug, psychic, ghost, fire, water, grass, electric, etc...I think dual types should be acceptable)
All Kanto Region
All Jhoto Region
All Hoenn Region
Top Team Battle
All Legendary Battle
All lv5 only Battle
All Starter Battle
Gym Leader Themed BattleIf anyone has any more ideas for categories, I'll put them in! Can we set a tentative date of March 15th-ish or do you guys need more time? Just let me know.

Game on!?

Don't forget I still would love to battle tonight on PBR with anyone and any team, so if you guys still want to have a fun battle, I'm in after 6ish today!




Original Post: Here's a hokey idea, but I thought it would be fun. Since the big game is tomorrow, I thought we could celebrate by having an all-day pokemon battle-fest! Sadly, I'll be in opera rehearsal for most of the day, but I wanna get in later in the day!

So, I thought we could have different kinds of battles and anyone can participate. I had the idea, like we could have type battles like "all ice-type team" battle or "all Kanto Region battle" or "all lv 5 battle". I thought it would be kind of cool to battle with pokemon types you wouldn't normally be interested in just for fun. Even pokemon that are considered "never-used" would be fun (does someone have an official list?) Of course, you could also battle using your regular team too :) Legendary Battle would be really interesting as well! It goes without saying that keeping your entry teams legit (un-touched by AR, etc) is encouraged ;-)

Anyway...I just wanted throw the idea out there and give everyone a day to prepare their teams. Prizes would be interesting, but there would have to be some sort of system for verifying victories or something. If anyone wants in or has any ideas, please post! :)

Last thing: Seems to me, the response I seem to be getting is a little un-encouraging, remember people...this is no big deal. I'm just sick of random battling and I think it would be a fun time to take some pokes that have been sitting in your boxes for ages and let them have some fun. I appreciate the feedback and opinions about the idea. If you are not interested in participating, there's nothing wrong with that. It makes the thread easier to manage for me if I hear from people who are interested in having some fun battles tomorrow than to wade through the messages discouraging the idea. It doesn't count toward your taxes, grades in school, driver's insurance records or arrest records...it's just some fun battling on Superbowl Sunday :) Let's have fun!

Good luck getting it all done in one day. Try shooting for March for PokeMarch Madness or somthing like that. However, everyone should just put there top pokes in the battle.

Thanks for the reply! It's okay if it doesn't work out. I'll be out most of the day anyway. I will certainly be battling tomorrow whether it's random battle or something planned in this thread :) Hope you'll change your mind and want to get in!

Anyone else in? :)

It's nothing serious, it's just a fun battle! Hope you'll be on wi-fi tomorrow :)

Yay! Thanks...it's not a big deal, just a fun wi-fi battle day that's more fun than random battling :)

hmm, for some reason my Wii does not like to hook online with my router. Keep in mind my router is re-soldered to a ungodly point.

I had a lot of trouble with that when I first got the wii. It seems to help if the router is on channel 1 or 11. If you know how to get into the network settings, you can finagle it. After I changed the channel, I stopped having connection problems.

A billion zillion times??!?! :) Very cool that you're a comcast Tech. I don't know how I survived without DVR all this time. I wonder why it doesn't like to connect to the PBR wi-fi? Hope it works out tomorrow.

Glad you're in. Don't understand the last part of your message, but this is what it translates to: "...but it won't be too popular though." Is that what you were trying to type?

If it's not popular, then it's okay :) Hope to see your pokes tomorrow!

I'm sorry that you feel so negatively about it and you've had some bad experiences trying to set up something similar :(

Listen...this is no big deal. If I have to battle with random peeps tomorrow like I do all the time, I'm not going to shed too many tears about it :) I'm happy that you'd like to battle tomorrow, but insisting on posting discouraging messages doesn't really do much good for the pokebowl, man! Let's just have some fun, okay? ;-)

See you tomorrow!

I'd have my team ready by March. I'd love to participate in the March Madness competetion (considering there is one). ^_^

EDIT: Oh, I have a bunch of Kanto Pokemon I can raise. I'd love to participate in the all Kanto region competetion.

The only sinnoh pokemon that are worthwhile are the ones not in the sinnoh dex basically addon 's too oringinal but i may do kanto competion seeing as thier are some major beats ...

Weezing .. Machamp .... Magneton .... Articuno..... Chansey....... Cloyster

Yeah, I thought lv5 would be the same as baby, no?

Tentacruel, I left Sinnoh out because I just thought there weren't enough good Sinnoh exclusive pokes, but I can certainly be convinced :) BUT, I'm loving your other idea about Gym Leader Team Battles! That is AMAZING! You are the bomb.

Can you esxplain further becuase my brian is on the fritz?

I think it's using the same team as a gym leader, yes?

So, if you wanted you use a "Cynthia Themed" Team, your team would be, Milotic, Spiritomb, Roserade, Gastrodon, Lucario and Garchomp.
