    I wouldn't mind this being given a try - I've only ever seen a Pokemon run out of PP once. It seems to me like it should be a once-every-couple-of-contests thing.

    I've been considering doing it for at least a month now, just wasn't sure what the reaction would be. I'll make a choice in a few days.

    No announcement, if people care they'll look 'em up

    However, I am not AmericanTreeFrog. That is quite obvious to you all. Although ATF didn't ask for me to announce this (see above quote), I thought I would anyway, for the benefit of all you lovely people. I'm sure you all do care.

    AHEM. For the attention of all regular co-ordinators and judges, new combos have been discovered and added into the move list. That means there's more of an opportunity for you to get more of those points and come up with new strategies to win your contests. Although the changes may seem minor in some cases, at least you're comforted by the knowledge they're there to be used.

    Additionally, the combo standby moves are now actually in their proper alphabetical order. THAT'S NOT AS IMPORTANT AS THE COMBOS, THOUGH.

    The recently-added combinations are as follows:
    Calm Mind + Psycho Boost.

    Charge + Shock Wave.

    Growth + Frenzy Plant.
    Growth + Leech Seed.

    Hail + Aurora Beam.
    Hail + Haze.
    Hail + Ice Ball.
    Hail + Ice Beam.
    Hail + Icy Wind.
    Hail + Sheer Cold.

    Mind Reader + Sheer Cold.

    Rage + Thrash.

    Rain Dance + Hydro Cannon.

    Sandstorm + Mud Shot.
    Sandstorm + Mud Sport.

    Sunny Day + Blast Burn.

    Two things I forgot to post about.
    1) Judge wages for BW Contests are $750 per Pokemon used if you haven't noticed.
    2) PP for Pokemon in BW Contests is now reduced from 400 to 300.

    Enjoy.

    *resurrects thread from the grave*

    For the Grand Championship, is it going to be done as many normal contests (1v1v1v1 for RSE/DPPt and 1on1 for BW) or as a festival for each Round? Also, how are the points going to be awarded?

    Yes, they'll be exactly as normal, just like a regular contest. Points are based off what you earn in the contests. EX. R/S/E = 500pts{3rd} | D/P/Pt = 1250{1st} | B/W = 820{1st}. So across the three contests he earned a total of 2570. That would be his final score.

    Ah, I think I understand this a bit better. So you only do three for the entire tournament? Are these with the same people each time or randomized for each style?

    I'll randomly assign everyone in each round.

    I think that combining the contest and battle berries, while it seems logical, totally screws up the prices for a one use battle item. Some cost $2,000 and that's more than the difference between winning and losing ANY type of battle.

    @AmericanTreeFrog;
    While this is true in some cases, others are lower and more cost effective. While some are $2,000 apiece, and that can seem like a lot, you can get that out of one contest if you win, two if you lose. If we compare that to something like a Red Card and like items, I would say that it's a fair deal..

    Red Card is returned at the end of the battle though, so you can get a lot more than its cost from it. $2,000 for a single item that goes away after the battle is just really overpriced, considering it's generally better to just take the loss and get more than you would have between winning and buying the berry, IF it even allows you to win when you would lose. You may also want to check posts in Trainer's Court thread Make Gems and Herbs permanent, as it is relevant to this.

    I have checked the thread and seen the opinions on it.

    I'm so, so sorry to anyone involved but my internet has been so bad lately that there are very few opportunities when I can get onto my laptop - I'm mostly stuck on my iPod. Since I didn't want to post this twice, I need someone else to judge my two contests I claimed for the grand championship.
