I'll update this topic with any relevant information, but please feel free to use this topic to ask any general questions you may have.  If you are planning on hosting a tournament, please send either me, Edo, or 22 a PM with your idea(s).

Tonight's AC meeting will hopefully touch upon some tournament details we'll be...detailing...this year, such as expected token rates and scheduling.

Will megas be allowed in this year's Pokemon tournament? If the issue is with compatibility, maybe only allow Megas from XY and not the ORAS ones?

Depends on who's hosting. Cirdec offered but I also remember him wanting to implement a lot of smogon rules no one likes so perhaps this should be discussed by whoever wants to host/play

If you were gonna use any ruleset, why Smogon? VGC is at least the official Game Freak sponsored one. But those are double battles so eh.

Change the VGC rule set to singl battle, and the only restrictions are having multiple of the same item, and having any of the stronger legendaries like Mewtwo and Lugia. Stuff like Zapdos and Entei are fair game.

I also strongly suggest non-elimination like how SSB was done last year.  No one likes being eliminated early because the other person decided to use a preset googled team.

I liked that system for Smash last year. Everyone got to play a lot of matches with different people and it was fun.

Getting four people available at the same time for doubles was a nightmare though.

Do you have to be part of the AC to host one of these tournaments?

whoever it was deleted their post but if they want to take over for the super mario maker awards contest then please go ahead because I think anyone else would do a much better job of it then i would

edit: same goes for the fire emblem fates contest because I'm sure someone who's had the game for months would be able to host it much easier

Nope, you just gotta know what you're doing and present us with a plan and stick to it

Hosting the last two Pokemon tournaments has made me realize that the Swiss-system is probably the best way to go from this point forward, especially considering how well it worked with the Smash tournament. Round Robin just doesn't work very well at all, I've learned.

I'd be interested in hosting the Pokemon tournament again if people would like me to, though! And I promise I won't disappear during it. >_>

Welp I would like to host Pokémon tournament as well this year.
If I do I am planning, to ban all legendaries and to allow all megas except overpowered ones like Mega Kangaskhan.

I recommend Swiss system for people doing 1v1 style tournaments. Much more games for everyone involved, much more even token distribution, but still rewards people for performing better than others.

Basically anything more than 2 players needs to be either pre-organized from sign-ups on or freestyled with who is on what team. I'm either making doubles sign ups strict on when people can play their matches or I'm just not doing it at all.

i am interested in doing the mk7 tournament again this year, it's not going to go terribly due to the people and i'm going to make sure of that. i'm going do the same system as last year, unless something else works better?

i'm also probably not going to be able to join the tournament itself but everyone can get back to me with results lol

Kangaskhan and Gengar are the only ones I can think of that are super busted. Maybe Lucario.

tbh i don't like the idea of megas in pokemon tournaments as they're overly gimmicky, i'd prefer we didn't but i'm not the host

you can just slap some game-winning item on him instead

Not all megas are gimmicky, some are just stat boosts, but I agree, some of the gimmicky ones aren't really fun to play against.
