    Now that Zam went AWOL, I have been asked to run the PC Wi-Fi Tournament. This thread will act as the new thread (since it would be hard to run a tournament from page 257 of the old thread...)

    Now that Black and White are available in most places, I think it is about time that we have something like this set up. Chances are, most of the people reading this are able to link up wirelessly, and if not, you can still cheer on the players!

    One of the problems I see with having a tournament is that I don't believe anyone other than the two participants can actually see what is going on, allowing cheaters to have a field day. So we'd need a level of trust between members. That said, I think it would be doable.

    Other than that, here are a few rules I made up myself. Subject to change if I get a crowd of members wanting it as such. =P

    PC WiFi Tournament Rules

    1. You must have either Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold, or SoulSilver, with WiFi capabilities to enter a Fourth Gen Tournament. For a Fifth Gen Tournament, you must have either Black or White.

    2. You must have a team of six Pokemon, not including the following:

    Fourth Gen
    Mewtwo, Mew, Wynaut, Wobbuffet, Lugia, Ho-oh, Salamence, Latias, Latios, Groudon, Kyogre, Deoxys(all formes), Garchomp, Dialga, Palkia, Giratina(all formes), Manaphy, Shaymin(Sky forme only), Darkrai, Arceus

    Fifth Gen

    Mewtwo, Lugia, Ho-oh, Blaziken, Groudon, Kyogre, Rayquaza, Deoxys(Normal & Attack formes), Dialga, Palkia, Giratina(all formes), Manaphy, Shaymin(Sky forme only), Darkrai, Arceus, Excadrill, Thundrus, Reshiram, Zekrom, Keldeo, Meloetta, Genesect

    And in addition to that, there are some restrictions on abilities:

    -Do not use the Moody Ability.
    -Do not have Drizzle and Swift Swim Abilities on the same team.
    -Chandelure with Shadow Tag is banned, but allowed with other Abilities.

    Since we are just at the dawn of the fifth generation, several of the above ban lists may change over time. However, in regards to this tournament, we will follow the standards that were in effect as of Round One. Thus, if a Pokémon becomes banned in the middle of a tournament, they will be allowed for the remainder and banned in the subsequent tournaments. This also works both ways, so if a Pokémon is unbanned during a tournament, it will remained banned here until the final.

    3. All basic clauses will be in effect. That's Sleep, Evasion, OHKO, Hax Item, and Species Clauses:

    Sleep Clause: No two Pokemon of the same side should be asleep at the same time. Exceptions being Rest, and "no other choice" situations(ie. Effect Spore ability, or getting Encored on Hypnosis). Also of note is that while allowed in the singles, the use of Dark Void in a doubles or triples match is not.

    Evasion Clause: No use of moves that alter the ability to hit with attacks. This includes Flash, Double Team, & Sand-Attack. This does not include Acupressure and Metronome, which could randomly increase evasiveness.

    OHKO Clause: No using Guillotine, Horn Drill, Fissure, or Sheer Cold. Destiny Bond and Perish Song are allowed, however.

    Hax Item Clause: No using hold items that rely on luck. Hax Items include Lax Incense, King's Rock, Brightpowder, Razor Claw, Scope Lens, and Quick Claw.

    Species Clause: No two Pokemon of the same species on the same team. This does not apply to those in the same evolutionary line(ie. you can't have two Alakazam, but you can have an Alakazam and a Kadabra).

    4. Since all Fourth Gen WiFi battles allow you to choose Pokemon levels, all battles should be held at level 50 or 100, to allow even-footing. Battles will also be Single, not Double. And for Fifth Gen battles, the Wonder Launcher must be turned off.

    5. Entrants will be put into four groups at the start of the tourney: America East, America West, Europe, and Australia(after the regions the majority of you are from). Specific battles will be chosen randomly among the people in these groups, and will be posted here on a set day. However, once a certain point is reached, these regional groups will be dissolved, and everyone will be put in the same pot.

    6. Another set day, a DQ time as we like to call it, will be given, and I'd ask all results to be posted here before this time. The DQ time will be two weeks for each round, beginning and ending on a Saturday. Note that winning your battle while failing to notify me within the DQ time will still result in your DQ.

    7. This before-mentioned process will repeat until we have one person left! This person will be declared the winner, and will have their name at the top of this post for all eternity! Also, they will recieve prizes as listed below.

    8. If you turn out to be a no-show, not only will you not be able to receive any benefits(ie. being the candidate for the free round), but you will have to participate in a preliminary match the next time you enter the tournament. This shall include no-shows from previous rounds, with the winners moving on to Round One. Note the fact that if someone who withdraws from the tournament will not be considered a no-show.

    9. While the main tourney is, as mentioned, for Single Battles over WiFi, there will be a Side-Tourney, or Side-Tournies, as well. There are currently no Side-Tournies, and that will remain the case until further notice.

    10. If you change your username or account, please notify me ASAP.

    11. Please respect your fellow battlers. That means no flaming or spamming, or insulting your opponents. We are supposed to have fun here, so don't go ruining it for everyone else. Any member found practicing bad sportsmanship will be dealt with accordingly.

    12. Now, the rules I must add, and that I hope will never have to be enforced:

    If two people finish a battle with conflicting stories, BOTH will be disqualified. Furthermore, if later on the identity of the untruthful individual is found out, he or she will be banned from all future tournaments. This includes those who disconnect intentionally and lie about it.

    Furthermore, if it is found out that a battler has been using illegal hacked Pokemon, he or she will be banned from all future tournaments. This is in addition to any action the forum staff may take.

    Prizes

    Note: Anyone who wishes to donate a prize to the tournament, please PM me. It would be appreciated.

    1st place: Choice of 2 donations, plus recognition in the top of this post. Also gets to skip 1st & 2nd rounds of next tournament.
    2nd place: Choice of 1 donation. Also gets to skip 1st round of next tournament.
    3rd & 4th place: Gets to skip 1st round of next tournament.
    Giver of Donation: Gets to skip 1st round of next tournament. This is assuming the donation is both legal and worthy for being a prize.

    About one week before the next tournament starts, I shall PM all participants. If I don't get a reply before the beginning date, they will be disqualified. This is of course used to avoid no-shows.

    And when it finally does begin, I will post the pairings, and give trainers at least one week to post their results.

    List of Prize Donations:
    Shiny Sandile Lv1
    UT, Flawless
    Nature: Adamant, Ability: Intimidate
    Donated by Snorelacks

          This is sad... I PM'd every one of the 50 top players who have been active for more then the last month, but I only get this as a response. Curse you Zam! May you lose 1/4 of your health every turn!

              2 more days to go but it's good to see more people are joining this. ^^
              I hope more and more people joins before the deadline, so that way, we can get this going.
              Even if there isn't enough people by the deadline, if more people are joining this, I'm sure it would motivate cartercr to extend the deadline and this give a second try. :)

                Deadline has been extended by one week. If we can't fill the final three spots in one week, the tournament is canceled. I would hate to have to do this, though. Also, if we don't have at least 4 players for the Random Tier tournament, I will have to end that one.

                  One suggestion though, can we have an emblem as the prize rather than waiting for donation?

                              The way things are going here makes me happy and sad at the same time.
                              Im really glad this thing is getting more attention, I would be upset if it faded off into obscurity.
                              On the other hand, if no more fourth gen people come along i wont be able to play. *sigh* if only i had the patience to grind all of my pokemon to lv 100.

                                    Wi-Fi Tournaments will not die. I've been grounded for the last two weeks, and this just made my night to see this. You can find the brackets here

                                    Round 1 Match-ups

                                    Cowboy Brianie vs. Giorgos
                                    AssassinJay1229 vs. Snorelacks
                                    Wonjoon0330 vs. Aragornbird
                                    Legendary Pokemon vs. Cartercr
                                    Lunis vs. Johnny 18
                                    ShinySalamence888 vs. _Prince_
                                    Shadow Excadrill vs. Greg

                                    Also, we may now be able to use the tournament emblem, so that would be great. Also if anyone would like to make a donation, feel free to, otherwise I may have to come up with something. Also, feel free to make predictions, they make things fun. :D

                                    Good Luck, and Happy Battling.
