Traditional pokemon league system has now made me yawning all time i just play through it. We can change the system in fan games. Like the one in anime-we collect gym badges, participate in conference(the tournament) and then we get privilege to battle e4 and champion. Or can we have a better one?

Personally, I wouldn't care either way. I've played through multiple games that use the standard eight badges and Elite Four and have had a great time. A game shouldn't simply be judged by whether or not it has the traditional League system. There are more aspects to judge a game by than the Gyms.

I don't think adding in a tournament before the Elite Four would really make much difference. I mean, that's just more battling before the E4. The Victory Road pretty much takes care of that. A tournament would just tack more time onto it.

So all in all, I believe that it comes down to personal preference. Like I said, I personally don't mind what we've got now. But there are people out there who run around screaming that it needs to be changed. Ultimately, it's up to what the Dev wants to make and the players want to play.

Personally I've always thought that Victory Road is basically analogous to how the anime shows a tournament before the Elite 4.
The difference is that in the game you need to pit the player against a string of trainers separated by wild Pokémon encounters to make it difficult, as generic NPC trainers alone shouldn't be a serious threat to the player if they have the right sort of team for the area they're in. Meanwhile a single fight in the anime can be a lot more tense. (and they're usually writing under the plan that Ash doesn't win the finals anyway)
From a game point of view, a tournament would either need to pit the player against really strong opponents, like the Battle Tower (and then the E4 has to be even stronger), or you would have to go through without healing between matches, which seems unfair from an in-universe.

I want Pokemon Pyrite to do that, but I've an old version of essentials I can't upgrade, so I've been trying to use Luka's World Championship setup, but it's too new to work...

Pokemon Pyrite is now complete, check out the trailer/download link here:

it would be interesting to have a tournament with other trainers before we get to the e4. might be easier to implement as a "tourney" meaning that the string of tariners and whose outcomes were predetermined, having it look like an actual battle. You would just need to program the trainers who you battle rather than force you to sit through a battle like that! XD

It would be interesting. But considering the strength of the trainers that have gone up against the elite four, I wouldn't be surprised if we did implement that system the E4 would be full-on competitive (Items, competitive movesets, max IV+EVs, good natures, etc).

I still find it kind of pitiful how Ash's pikachu couldn't even touch Diantha's gardevoir. and then face a team with three pesudo-legendaries + uber (Aegislash) + Mega Zard X with only a greninja left. I don't know how overkill it would be to put pesudo legends on these teams.

They way i'm doing it is that there are eight elite 4 members in rotation.
So out of 8 people you only fight 4 every run.
