So with the release of PokÃ©mon Bank I'm going to hold a PokÃ©mon Tournament for the RPGFan forums. I'd have a banner here but I suck at images.
So anyway, rules will be simple: no legendaries, double battles. Players are allowed six PokÃ©mon with two for switch outs between matches (total of eight). Switches may only be used in between match-ups. Matches will be best two out of three. To keep things simple and the playing field level, PokÃ©mon cannot have move tutor abilities from before Gen VI; if you bred a PokÃ©mon (for example, a Hippowdon) in Gen VI that wasn't obtainable in X and Y, that's okay, but you can't have, say, a Hippowdon with Stealth Rock because that's clearly a Gen V transfer. To facilitate this, players should send photos of their eight chosen PokÃ©mon to me via PM clearly displaying the blue Kalos pentagon on their status screen.
Winners will receive a prize based on placement, which is a choice of selecting PokÃ©mon from the following list to be traded to them: Articuno, Moltres, Zapdos, Mewtwo, Mew, Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Celebi, Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Latias, Latios, Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, Jirachi, Deoxys, Uxie, Mesprit, Azelf, Dialga, Palkia, Heatran, Regigigas, Giratina, Cresselia, Phione, Manaphy, Darkrai, Shaymin, Arceus, Victini, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Tornadus, Thundurus, Reshiram, Zekrom, Landorus, Kyurem, Keldeo, Meloetta, and Genesect.
First place receives their choice of three PokÃ©mon from the list.
Second place receives their choice of two PokÃ©mon from the list not claimed by first place winner.
Third place receives their choice of one PokÃ©mon from the list not claimed by first and second place winners.
Fourth place receives one of the following PokÃ©mon: Articuno, Moltres, and Zapdos.
Some of the PokÃ©mon are shiny, to make it a surprise I'll remain silent on which ones.
Anyway, we'll see how much interest this gathers. Date will be set tentatively for Saturday, February 15, to give people time to breed/train. Happy battling.
