Since Shoddy has been introduced to me I have been hooked. It is a personal goal of mine to make Shoddy as large as it can be on this forum. I believe the next step in Project Pokémon's Shoddy is to integrate tournaments into the forums to make it more of a presence so it can attract new members. I have recently installed a new mod that will allow us to create tournaments and battle through to find a champion. Champions will receive forum privileges (to be determined later). Comments, concerns, questions, etc. are welcomed!
EDITED: Important stuff not in the first post: here and here And for any potential Shoddy users, read this Want to post about how I'm screwing this up/other complaints? Read this first! Now, onto what I originally posted: Ok, I've wanted to start organizing Project Pokemon tournaments for quite some time, and I've got a job that's being fairly flexible with my time, so I'm doing this now! I'd like to host a combination of tournaments here. Some of them will be straight up battles in the UU, OU, or Uber tier with the standard clauses (Sleep, Evasion, OHKO, Species). Some will be tier battling with some type of theme. Some will be themed battling, centered around some sort of gimmick, which may or may not have different rules/clauses. And ideally, I'd switch between battle centric tournaments and themed/gimmick tournaments. Hopefully we can do this once a month. Maybe more if it goes quickly enough. To start out, I think the first tournament should be fairly casual. But at the same time, so we can get a good feel for battling styles and whatnot. So, for the first Project Pokemon tournament: Kanto Nostalgia Trip! I can already feel the excitement. The Rules Sleep/Evasion/OHKO/Species Clause. Look em up, they're all over this forum Banned Pokemon: Have fun, be cool, don't be a jerk. I think you guys can handle this :bidoof: 3 Pokemon per team. No item substitutions, EV modifications, move substitutions, etc... may be made, but you can switch the order in which they are used. Battles will be best two out of 3. For this time, there will be no loser's bracket. The FAQ (which no one asked about Can I use [evolution/Pokemon in a later gen]? No. Why not? Because it's not in the Kanto Pokedex. But I want to use Blissey! That isn't a question So when's this shit gonna go down? The battling will start July14, brackets will be posted July 13, which is the same day sign-ups will end. Can I use Shoddy or PBR? In this case, it'll be acceptable, though I'd much prefer the use of a cart, especially Plat because of the video recorder. It's highly encouraged to use a cart rather than anything else. In other words, use Shoddy as a last resort, and only if your opponent also agrees to it too. Everyone here probably has a 4th gen cart, not everyone is on Shoddy. On that note, Plat is the cart preference due to Vs Recorder and Hypnosis accuracy, and it (mostly) reflects the game mechanics done for Shoddy battle.. What about hax0rz? As long as Pokemon fall within the legal parameters of the game, I'm fine with it. Any accusations of illegality should be PMed to me and I'll deal with it privately though playing legit is highly encouraged How do I sign up? Post here and say so. What do I win? Prizes for first, second, and third place TBA One other note, when the time comes, please contact your opponent via PM or some other method. I don't want this thread full of "where r u? im on teh wifi" and crap like that Sign-up list: You can also feel free to suggest ideas for future tournaments. And if anyone wants to help with prizes, PM me.
