Lavender Town Pokémon Tournament! [PC]
Hello there Lavender Town members, and guests alike! I've been planning a small event like this for a while now, and I finally have all of the necessities to make it happen! (The most important being a faster internet connection, which I finally got a while back) So hopefully without further delay, here we have, the Lavender Town Pokémon Tournament!

Now, this tournament will not be for the 3DS titles, Pokémon X and Y, or any of the Pokémon titles on the DS. This tournament will hopefully be available to some more people because it will be on PC! That's right, we'll be using Pokémon Showdown!

There are two well-known battle simulators that are commonly used by the more competitive players in Pokémon (Pokémon Online and Pokémon Showdown), but they're also used somewhat by the casual players looking to have some fun!

So, here's how things went down regarding software choice. Upon further inspection, it's clear that Showdown is more fleshed out than Pokémon Online, works more smoothly, and is an overall improvement to Pokémon Online's simulation engine. So, if you're planning on participating, you should likely download Pokémon Showdown. If you're used to Pokémon Online, this should certainly NOT be a big change!

So, how will you get the Pokémon? For those unfamiliar with the software, here's how it works: You are allowed to pick from over 700 Pokémon in the Team Builder. You can choose practically ANY Pokémon (read down below in the "Restrictions" for more info) and give them ANY moves, as long as they're moves that Pokémon can actually learn. You can give them practically ANY item (again, read "Restrictions" below for more details) and then you can battle it out with other people!

Onto how the tournament will play out. There are very limited spaces, so first come, first serve. The tournament bracket with all of the names will be uploaded as soon as all the players sign up. "How many players will be participating?" you may be asking. Well, kind stranger, I'll tell you! For this first tournament, there will be ONLY 4 spots available. No more than 4, unfortunately. 2 will battle against one another, 1 will move on. Another 2 will battle against each other, 1 more will move on. Those who lose will battle each other for 3rd place, and those who win will battle each other for 1st and 2nd place! I will be spectating the battle to see how it unfolds and I will be personally congratulating the winners who will move on.

So Pika, mind telling us what the benefits of winning the Tournament are? Well, I wish I could, but it's a secret for now. Only the 1st place winner will be receiving a prize in this tournament, so anyone who participates should definitely try their best to win that prize! Big Grin

Here are the restrictions I've placed on what Pokémon can and can't be used -
RESTRICTIONS
  • Shiny Pokémon - ALLOWED
  • Mega Evolutions - ALLOWED
  • Legendary Pokémon - PARTIALLY ALLOWED
  • Held Items - ALLOWED
  • Berries - NOT ALLOWED

The legendary Pokémon allowed are any who utilize Mega Stones for Mega Evolution. This only includes Mewtwo.

For now, that is all of the information I have that is necessary for this tournament. A sign-up thread is available in the >Pokémon Trade and Battle Station< Forum. For any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to PM me directly or post a reply in this thread! Thanks for reading, and hope you participate!
