Please make teams ahead of time for the tournaments you're interested in!

What is a Community Day?

Community Day is a get-together that's held on the PC Battle Server all day (but it's not exclusive to battling). Tournaments are a mainstay in Community Day, while other activities such as mafia, diplomacy, and the like can be hosted during CD as well. Basically, Community Day is just about having fun battling and chatting while the server is at its peak of activity. If you would like, you may suggest other activities in this thread that we can do during Community Day. Also, keep in mind that Community Day is meant to be a very laid-back event, so really anyone can participate. There's no pressure on whether you win or lose in a tournament, or if you don't join one at all. We're all doing this to have a good time.

When is the upcoming Community Day?

Community Day starts at 8 AM (GMT -5 / EST) on Saturday, June 1st and ends at midnight. That is 8 AM in New York; 1 PM in England; 9 PM in Western Australia; 12 AM in eastern Australia; and 5 AM in California. Just so you know, you don't need to be there at the launch; Community Day lasts all day so that everyone can participate regardless of their time zone.

How do I sign up?

There's no signing up required. All you have to do is show up on the PC Battle Server during the times we have listed in this thread. You might want to prepare teams for each tournament you plan on joining though. The tournament themes will be listed in this thread for that reason. Additionally, if you were online during this Community Day, you will receive the bronze emblem below. You can also get the silver or gold emblems if you've already participated in one or two Community Days, respectively.


What are the tournament rules, themes, and schedule?

All you have to do is follow BC's General Battle Rules. The ban lists for the tournament themes below can be found here. All tournaments are "Best of One" (participants battle each other once to determine a match-up) unless stated otherwise. Don't know what tiers are or need usage statistics? Use our Guides & Resources.

PC Battle Server themes
1. Summer-themed OU (Sun permanently starts at the beginning of each battle (you don't need to use Ninetales or Sunny Day on your team; the sun starts automatically). The abilities Drizzle, Snow Warning, and Sand Stream are banned, but the moves with similar effects are not. All Ice-type Pokémon are banned, including dual types.)
2. NU (moveset analyses)
3. May Mayhem (Seasonal) (Read this article for more information.)
4. Singles or Doubles Random Battle (randomly generated teams)
5. Random Battle 1-vs-1 (randomly generated teams)
6. High, Medium, or Low Tier Random Battle (randomly generated teams)
7. OU (standard) (moveset analyses)
8. UU (moveset analyses)
9. RU (moveset analyses)
10. LC (Read this guide for more information.) (moveset analyses)
...then repeat

Wi-Fi themes
There will not be any Wi-Fi tournaments unless there's enough people that want them.

We will go from the first theme listed and make our way down. The Wi-Fi tournaments will most likely run at the same time as the server tournaments. The orders may change during Community Day, but it's not likely. There is also a chance that we'll use other themes if there's a demand for them.

I agree! I say we remove PU because it was the only metagame that wasn't very popular last time, and replace it with Tiered Randbats. Then add Randbats 1v1 to the list and we'll have 10 themes.

Definitely agree on a summer tournament. Maybe no Ice types allowed, plus other things I can think of right now XD

I definitely agree remove PU as to last time we only had 3 people have a team ready.

As for the Summer tourney I would say no Ice types as Jake mentioned.

YAY! Another CommDay! I'm definitely on this. I didn't even know what PU was. Summer Themed? No Ice as the others suggested and add Randbatts 1v1. Those became popular.

I could whip up a format identical to OU, but with sun permanently starting from the beginning of every battle. Then ban Drizzle, Snow Warning, and Sand Stream. That would likely change up the metagame enough to not require any further changes (except the ban on Ice-types?).

I can't wait for the tenth Commday, I'm sure it'll be a blast! 1 vs 1 Randbats are certainly popular and it is my favourite metagame so bring it on! :]

Yeah 1v1 Randbats are awesome I'm beginning to like it very much. :3

No Ice pokemon should be good as well since it's summer. Maybe just Grass, Water, Fire, Ground, and Flying :3

I dont think there is a need to limit the types other than ban Ice because really anything can fall into "summer" such as bugs(I see you left out Bug type) and stuff.

"I see. Alright then. Time to prove my worth in this tournament!"

This looks pretty fun. I'm glad I'm able to participate in it. Well, hopefully. I'm really into this kind of thing, and it seems like a good way to meet other members. Count me in.

June 1st is our ice cream social at the fire house so I'm pretty well booked from 8am until at least 5pmish or so. Not sure how long clean up will be but maybe I can participate when we get done.

Well, Community Day is an event hosted on the official PokeCommunity Pokemon Showdown server. You can either take part in the many battling tournaments there, or just participate in the chat. And everyone who attends will receive an emblem for participation.

Definitely come to the server because it's a very fun event indeed!

Sounds like a cool event, I'll definitely show up to complete. I have just put together a pretty powerful team, that i would like to try out. The hackers on random matchup are a bit annoying to deal with at times.

So I was told to suggest this as a possible event because why not.

There is a game by Valve called DotA 2 which is currently in beta. For those of you familiar with the game Warcraft 3, DotA (Defense of the Ancients) was a mod for Warcraft 3. DotA 2 is Valve's recreation / update of the game and is available on Steam for those of you with access to the beta. If you don't have beta access, just ask me (PM / VM / Showdown Server) and I can get you an invite seeing as I have about 30.

Anyway, we can organize some DotA 2 type event. My suggestions for a DotA 2 event include a game called Pudge Wars. A hero named Pudge uses a meat hook in order to pull enemies toward him, and then proceeds to eat them dealing a bunch of damage. A gametype was added to DotA 2 that allows the same hero to be picked multiple times, and therefore Pudge Wars are available. Everyone picks pudge and you battle it out at middle lane until two towers are taken on either side. It's actually a lot of fun.

Alternatively, if we can for sure get at least 10 people online at the same time, we could play a custom game 5v5. It's just a normal dota match except it'll be 100% friendly since the stats from the game don't count. I highly advise against playing an actual 5 man stack match online since it could lead to friends fighting (even if temporary, it's never a fun time).

So, let me know what you think. Take a look at some videos of the game if you're not familiar with it. It's quite fun. :]
