Idea for a Pokemon Tournament

Rate this Entry
I wanna host a Pokemon tournament sometime. But I wanted to mix things up to make it more interesting. I would assign every participant a team, and they would have to use it for that round. Everybody would receive a new team each round.


~I'm going to try to make it fairly balanced. I'm not going to give one guy a team of pseudo legends and give another guy a team consisting of weak Bug Pokemon. It's going to be fairly even.
~All the Pokemon, save for some viable pre evolutions (Porygon 2, Golbat, etc) will be fully evolved.
~This will be done via my own opinion, and some RNG
~You may use any moveset, items, EV spread, abilities, etc for the Pokemon I assign you.
~The number of rounds depends on the amount of people that sign up
~To participate, you must have access to Pokemon Online and/or Pokemon Showdown. Depending on what people have, I may say that only one of them can be used, but I don't know yet.

The idea of this is to give people a chance to use Pokemon they haven't put much thought into. If you're interested, please comment, and if enough people wanna join then I can make the thread (after getting permission of course).

    That sounds really fun actually. Considering I'm really good at Random Battles on Showdown, this is right up my alley. Count me in.

    I can do it on PS. I think I'll be participating!

    EDIT: Just got onto Pokemon Showdown. My username is " Black Bandit" Include the spaces. I can do both now I guess. When is this tournament?

    EDIT2: Oh, I can't do PO :(

    @The Twilight Knight; I dunno, probably when I have a good amount of people.

    Showdown should work fine.

    That sounds cool, but I think what you should do is also assign the movesets and EV spreads and items. You could make like a weather team, a stall team, a trick room team, a team built around a specific pokemon, ect. and then people would have to adapt to different playing styles in order to be successful.

    @TheMissingno.; Not crazy about that idea, as I like people being able to choose their own movesets. It would make it more interesting, and they could be more creative.

    There's little interest in this, so I'm going to mention a few people that might be interested.

    @SharKing; @Lord Clowncrete; @Synthesis; @Angad;

    Your thoughts?

    It certainly could work, provided that the pokemon have some versatility. Like using Mew could really have some options, or a combination of Ubers and NU.

    Yeah, I like it. Go for it and I'll sign up.

    Interesting idea. I'll sign up for it. I would give a suggestion that you keep the tourney on both Ps! and PO. Ps! works pretty slow for some users and we also have our juicy server on PO.

    As an add-on on what Angad said, you can also choose mons based on the diversity cup theme. Basically diversity cup follows the idea that a team should have 1 OU, 1 UU and 2 RU and NU.(The distribution between tiers can be random.)

    Why not a Challenge Cup tourny? That way it isn't serious in any way :3
