    Steam:
    Date & Time
    To be determined

    Rules
    Single Battle
    Level 50 or Level 100 (between combatants)
    No Stalling
    Single Elimination
    No cheating (Any obvious AR usage will result in disqualification)
    Legendaries Allowed unless (see FAQ)
    No Mega Rayquaza, anyone caught with Mega evolving it is immediately disqualified

    FAQ
    Q. Why the ban on legendaries in competitive play?
    A. Whether that is a rule in place or not is yet to be decided.

    Q. Unless what?
    A. Unless one of the combatants does not want to battle a Legendary Pokemon, then I will intervene and see whether the legendary is fair enough, if the user still does not want to fight the legendary, then they will be asked to combat to see if they win or lose, if they refuse that then it is an automatic forfeit by that user and the other will move on, as for myself, I'll battle anything at this point.

    Also I don't think you should ban legendaries. They aren't all bad to fight, if you ban legendaries you should ban most Mega Pokemon.

    I can understand when fucking around with friends - but why the ban on legendaries in competitive play?

    Added to the FAQ, however, if enough people (4-5) think it's fine to battle legendaries, that rule will be changed, I've added a pole, added to list of combatants Cr33p.

    Just because people don't like fighting legendaries doesn't mean they should be banned. I know most people hate to fight Duck Hunt in Sm4sh but Sboles didn't ban him.
    I know you are trying to appeal to more people but if you are going to ban legendaries you might as well ban Mega Evolutions also.

    I'm fine with no legendaries but it doesn't make sense to ban them just because a few people don't like to fight them.

    For now, I'll remove the rule, if enough people vote no (4-5) then I'll go ahead and set the rule back in place. If enough people vote yes (4-5) then the rule will be officially removed

    Sigh...if only I did more than beat the first gym leader in Pokemon X...\

    I wonder if my dad would let me borrow his pokemon to play you guys.

    Steam:
    I would like to have at least 8 people so we can do 4 battles for entry, 2 battles for semi-finals, 1 battle for finals.

    I'm not sure how long that will take but @Avenger is still progressing through the game so we might have enough room for you.

    I've been thinking of a day for the tournament which should be the weekend after the start of winter break, December 20th to be more precise.

    Also, about banning legendaries, I think we should have a poll.
    To be honest, there are some legendaries that when trained right are ridiculous and have higher stat caps than other pokemon, that's the only thing that worries me.

    If we do this before christmas, I won't have my own 3DS yet and I'll have to give you guys my sister's friend code. But if we do it on/after Christmas, I'll have my own 3DS and I can add all you guys on my real account

    Also idk about legendaries, I doubt I'll have most of them by the time this thing goes down, I've had the whole week off for Thanksgiving and was able to get some major time in (~13 hours) but I will most likely have 2-3 metric shit tons of homework per night

    Steam:
    So far, the legendary preference is tied. I'm not sure who's voted so far but PLEASE, this rule is being debated on for the tournament, if you aren't participating in the tournament, please do not vote. This is not asking for your insight about legendaries in competitive play, it's asking whether you want to play with them in our friendly competition.

    Steam:
    It's fine for now as it's just a request, I can't force people to abide by it, someone else voted no and idk who that is either so it balances with 1 extra for each side. I assume, for the rest of the votes, are participants.

    Is a professionally trained legendary better than professionally trained normal pokemon?
     
  17. Samantha.

    Samantha. Gaben's Own Aimbot Contributor

    Some are, some aren't. Depends on their tier.
    That's why I voted no.

    Steam:
    Only legendary that was banned from normal comp and ubers is Mega Rayquaza.

    Samantha. Gaben's Own Aimbot Contributor

    Yeah but the issue is that we are not playing in a single competetive tier. Thus, some douche (Example: ME) could pick all Uber/OU pokemon and destroy the tournament if they make them properly.

    Steam:
    Not true, back in Diamond & Pearl (not sure if it still exists) the NPC would not allow you to participate in WiFi battles if you had a specific set of legendaries in your team.

    Furthermore, bumping vote requirement to 6.
