    some re-tiering needs doing but it's mostly good to go. also the prizes and decaying pay etc look good imo

    It'd be cool if there was like a council where tiers could be discussed and Pokemon shifted if there was a majority after voting or s/t.

    That list looks mostly good but I would consider Ampharos (tier 3) much better than Azumarill (tier 1) but not everyone might think that. I feel like fixing the tiers would be a bigger project than it seems but I can help if we do do something on it.

    Also, I think the proposed pay for tier 1/2/3/4 if we do the double 100k budget was 35/20/15/10.

    This makes it impossible to have more than one tier 1 and a full team of 6, and I dont know if that's something we want or not. Opinions?

    Not sure if Pokemon with megas should be as high as they'd ordinarily be, since in the last tournament you had to buy helds and evolution items. Megastones will be expensive and probably not used very much anyway. In addition, if a tier 1 cost 20000 more than a tier 3, if a tier 3 pokemon would have a tier 1 mega then the tiering would be correct for those who wanted to use the non-mega form.

    EDIT: and it would make all the tier one megas impossible to fit onto your team if we put mega stones in the first budget.

    I do agree with what you're saying but there's nothing stopping someone getting a lucario or kangaskhan at their lowish tiers, their mega stone, and 5 decent pokemon and wrecking the tourney.

    I feel like pokemon's tiering should be where the pokemon is at their best. This doesnt just apply to the megas, take a look at Ditto. Without items or imposter it'd definitely be the lowest tier. With HA it becomes a worse version of what you send it in against almost always (300 max HP). It's only with items on that it becomes top tier. The same applies to all pf the megas and they should be tiered accordingly imo.

    Yeah I'd agree with bumping Pokemon with Mega Evolutions down a Tier. I wouldn't just put them all in Tier 3 though. Keep in mind that the Mega Stones fall under a separate budget and that you can only use 1 Mega per battle anyway so being unable to buy more than 1 or 2 Mega-evolvable Pokemon isn't necessarily a large constraint.

    EDIT (Syn posted while I made this): we could alternatively just shave 5K off a Pokemon that can Mega Evolve.

    As for Syn's point about only being able to have 1 Tier 1 Pokemon with a full team of 6, I think bumping down everything with a mega evolution would remedy that a bit, and I also think that it's a fair trade off to have less variety for more power.

    Once we get these last two points sorted out, I'll post sign-ups in the near future. Also huge thanks to smores for the Tiering! :D If anyone has any major issues with the way things are Tiered for the short-term purposes of this tourney, be sure to post here or in the sign up thread when it goes up. Large adjustments should probably be left for a later date.

    This is probably a dumb question, but I want to ask anyways. If, in the event we somehow manage to have money left over after buying our Pokemon in the Pokemon budget, what happens to that money? Does it get added to the EM money or does it just disappear completely or what?

    Not saying it's actually gonna happen, but figured I'd get some clarification on it while I'm here. Probably already answered, & then I'll just look dumb with my already answered question, but yeah.

    probs just carry over into EM budget, reinforces the idea of sacrifice pokemon quality to have more EM's

    I have an idea! How about a baby pokemon tourney. A 3 on 3 elimination tournament where only baby Pokemon are allowed! Who will be strongest when using the weakest!

    I think that's too similar to the one before the current one (Devolution Tournament, all Pokémon are fully devolved to their lowest form. Unevolving Pokémon and certain Pokémon like Scyther are banned).

    I feel like we'll be able to just do Annual Gym Tournament as the next one after the ongoing Budget Tournament. As for the next tournament that isn't that one (whether before or after it), a tournament that only allows lower tiered Pokémon could be fun. Something without chickens and frogs running rampant is always nice.
