Official PokéCommunity Tournament #1
Semifinals

Welcome to the Official PokéCommunity Tournament!


Have you ever wondered how your Pokémon skills stacked up against everyone else? Now is your chance to find out! Everyone is invited to test their Pokémon skills in this tournament. To give every interested member a chance to compete for the title of PokéCommunty's best player, battles will take place on PokéCommunity's Pokémon Online server. For more information on Pokémon Online, click here. I will be hosting this event in cooperation with the forum staff. It will be a single elimination tournament with deadlines lasting approximately 1-2 weeks for each round. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.

Rules and Regulations


Clauses


Evasion Clause

A player cannot increase their Pokémon's evasion stat with a move that specifically increases evasion. Items or indirect boosts do not break this clause.

OHKO Clause

A player cannot use Horn Drill, Guillotine, Sheer Cold, or Fissure in any of their Pokémon's movesets.

Sleep Clause

A player cannot put two or more different opposing Pokémon to sleep using attacks that induce sleep to opposing Pokémon.

Species Clause

A player cannot have two of the same Pokémon on their team. For example, a player cannot have two Koffing on his or her team.

Wi-Fi Clause

A player can view their opponent's team and change the team order accordingly. This feature is forced in wireless competition.

Ban List


Abilities

Moody
Drizzle + Swift Swim on the same team

Items

All items that increase Evasion (BrightPowder, Lax Incense)

Moves

All moves that increase Evasion only (Double Team, Minimize)
All instant OHKO moves (Fissure, Guillotine, Horn Drill, Sheer Cold)

Species



Rulings


Identity

Some participants may want to play their games on an alternate account of Pokémon Online. There is nothing I will do to stop this, but I don't want to hear about someone's identity being stolen or being coached how to play through private messages. I will take severe action against either of them.

Scouting

Counterteaming is a common complaint in tournaments. I don't want to hear about it. Don't scout your opponent. There is a difference between knowing someone commonly uses a certain style of team than watching someone's battles to learn exactly what their team is. Participants can play their games with Disallow Spectators and can ask any person to leave their game if they don't want them watching.

Timer Clause

As for taking long between moves, if your opponent asks you to hurry up, please oblige. If you are doing a damage calculation for a key turn that is one thing, but prolonging every move is suspicious and annoying. Don't do it. Furthermore, Battle Timeout is a rule for a reason. If you run out of time, you lose, simple as that. It does not matter what your opponent says. Do not battle if you think you will have to leave in middle of the battle, and instead reschedule for a better time.

Disconnections

Finally, in the case of a disconnect, the decision is in the hands of the player who did not disconnect. The options are: redo the battle move for move, redo the battle with the same teams but different moves, or redo the battle with completely different teams. If the battle was without a doubt over, they may also take the win. Any suspicion that a disconnect was committed on purpose to redo a match may be appealed to me, and if I feel this happened there will be severe consequences, don't do it.

Our Pokemon are the same, but somehow yours are better just because you want to spend hours doing what I can do in minutes. Copy this into your sig if you think that anti PokeSav/PokeGen arguments are rediculus.

90% of teenagers listen to rap. If you are one of the 10% that listens to real music, copy and paste this into your signature.
