Sorry for the dp, wolf and Zeffy

Alrighty guys, so I'm all finished with finals and ready to tie up the registrations on this tourney so we can lock in our bracket and all that good stuff.

Here is what our bracket is looking like as things stand:



I removed the filler participants, and shuffled the seeds so I wouldn't be pre-qualifying myself for Round 2.

If we can get two more participants before Saturday, we'll have enough seeds for everyone to battle in Round 1. After registration closes, I'll look into how we can go about divvying up the spoils amongst the victors.

I think I completely forgot that these threads have pages. I thought it randomly just went dead after I sent in my submission.

Here's how I'm thinking of divvying up the prizes. We have a total of:

8 Legends (4 of them shiny)
11 Non-Legendary Shinies
11 Hidden Ability/Egg Move mons.

I'm thinking of distributing them as such:

First Place will receive all the legends, all the Hidden Ability mons, and 6 of the shinies (first pick).
Second Place will receive the remaining shinies and a copy of all the Hidden Ability mons
Third Place will receive all the Hidden Ability mons.

This would mean that some of us would have to breed copies of our offerings. If you want to trade them into my custody, I'd be glad to do the honors. But if you can help, that would also be much appreciated.

So guys, this is definitely a new rule I'm adding in that gives myself a certain favoritism, but otherwise I don't see how it would be possible for me to overcome particular typing disadvantages and I'm sure some of y'all are having the same problem.

Since we are all type-locked, participants will be permitted to use type-changed Mega Evolutions so long as the final form includes one of their chosen types. EX: if a participant's types are Fairy and Electric, they may use Mega Audino. The Pokemon will be required to mega evolve during the match, failing to do so will result in an automatic disqualification.

I will add this to the first post and stop using stuff like Mega Sceptile when people challenge me. My apologies to anyone I've beaten in the past with a Mega Sceptile. I know this is coming in at short notice, so let me know what you think.

Your type is Ground/Dragon so you are allowed to use Mega Sceptile as long as you Mega Evolve Sceptile. I don't know why you apologies because you didn't break any rules.

I had a conversation with Polar that was in disagreement with this statement. Evidently the rule allows for using Mega Evolutions that evolve out of the chosen typing. Meaning that Mega Gyarados is a permissible mon on his Flying/Fighting team, but things like Mega Charizard X are not allowed on mine.

Nevermind, I found the PM. I'm still not quite used to the layout of this forum, so I end up having a good amount of problems navigating it.

Glad to hear you found it PicPax.

Folks, it's with great honor that I make today's announcement.

The First Round of the Prism Cup has officially begun!

Please be sure to contact your opponent and arrange a time and date for your match. Submit the results in this thread before 22:00 MST on June 5th (4:00 GMT June 6th), or the match will fall to a coin flip. Also on the subject of coin flips, I used Heads for Singles and Tails for Doubles to determine the formats for this round's mismatches:


Zekrom (Nah) v. Zagan - Singles
Polar Spectrum v. Krystia - Doubles

Good luck, everyone. In the words of Queen Elincia, "Fight Well! Fight Brave! Fight True!"

I will flip a coin to determine the victor if this happens, giving each battler a 50/50 shot at victory.

I'm stoked to be the first to announce my match results!

Surprisingly, I overcame a severe typing advantage and won Round 1 against TGM. I think Kyurem-B and Gastrodon were definitely the MVP's in this match.

Also, make sure you're saving battle videos and posting them for review, folks.

I lost to Zagan:

http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/pokecommunity-ou-174993

There's a reason as to why we did it on the battle server and not via 3DS. We tried that at first, but along with a few connection drops there was a message that kept popping up that said "you cannot battle the other player" or something like that. Idk why that message was coming up, so we decided that we might as well do the battle on the server.

Also I did not think that Mega Beedrill could eat a +2 Dragon Pulse from Serperior.

If I'm the one waiting for my opponent and he doesn't show up, is there still a coin flip even if I have been here all along?
He has the rest of the week, and the answer is yes.
