hello, competitive battlers! in case you were wondering why this thread was given this name, its because a new wifi league is being made and this tournament will decide the gym leaders.
if you want to battle just for fun but don't want to be a gym leader, elite four or champion if you've ranked high enough, LEAVE NOW!!! please specify in your sign up. an example is below. you may change this preference by posting that you have changed your mind anytime before the last round of the tournament ends. if you opted out of being gym leader and change your mind after the tournament ends or didn't make the cut, though luck. you'll have to visit the league and win a gym battle, then challenge them again by their own custom rules.
each round will last up to a week, try to get them in as soon as you can though.
sign ups for this tournament go from now until april 1st. battles start on the april 2nd (no joke)
here is a sign up form for reference:
first thing first, NO HACKS. legal hacks are ok but any pokemon with IVs in a single stat over 31, EVs in a single stat over 252, an EV total of over 510, or a move that it does not learn though breeding, level up, a character in game or an event is not allowed. anyone caught with a pokemon like this will be warned. if done on purpose or a second time, they will be disqualified.
this is a 5th gen wifi tournament using swiss format. the default rules for this tournament will be single, level 100, ban list will be the black/white random match up ban list. so, basically mascot and event legendaries are banned plus manaphy and phione.
as you can see in my sign up form, you can put your preferred battle style in. please put the different specifications in order of priority from left being high to right being low. like with mine, i put "wonder launcher off" on the far right since that doesn't bother me as much while "triple" on the far left because it matters to my main team most.
i will match you up as best i can to match this. but since everyone has different taste, it will likely not match completely. so it is recommended you make your team good for more then one format, or make a second one for a different format for when you have a disagreement. you will have to work it out yourselves if you're matched with someone with a different battling preference. if you can't agree on something, the match will use the default rules.
sleep, freeze, hax, evasion, item and species clauses are all in play. this may be changed if both players agree to get rid of some or add to them. but that would not be recommended as these clauses, in my opinion, do make the game much more balanced.
