G'day there, mates. This year, me and my adorably overweight friend, Packy, have spent a long time talking over cups of berry juice, pondering the secrets of the universe and when the *bleep* Stooben will write a song about Packy's amazing arse, where we got an amazing idea. What if we hosted a Pokémon tournament... TOGETHER?! It was unheard of, completely revolutionary... could it even be done?! Yet we tried, and here we are now, hosting a tournament for the Generation 6 Pokémon games; specifically, X, Y, OmegaRuby, and AlphaSapphire.

THE CHALLONGE PAGE FOR THIS HERE TOURNAMENT!
----
RULES AND REGULATIONS

FORMAT
  • The tournament will be Swiss style, to ensure everyone is able to play as many games as possible. Last year, the tournament was Elimination style, which forced players who lost in the lower brackets out of the tournament completely. That's no fun. With this format, everyone should be able to get a fair go.
  • Rounds are a Best of Three. Whoever wins Two matches in the round wins.
  • The tournament will be Single battles, meaning each player will have a team of Six Pokémon each, with only one in play at a time. We want to dedicate all our efforts into this format to ensure it's as organised and fun as possible, but if there is enough demand, we can host a smaller Doubles side-tournament as well.
  • Sign-ups will run until June 30th, with the tournament proper hopefully being held between July 1st to July 30th. Exact time frames will be determined to best suit the participants of each individual match, but keep in mind that we do expect some degree of effort on your part to keep things timely and running smoothly.
  • Pokémon will be set to Level 50 for the tournament. Don't fret, this just means any Pokémon you have that are over or under level 50 will be automatically rounded to level 50. Easy as sin.

RESTRICTIONS
  • No same Pokémon can be used in a single team. So for example, you cannot stack your team with six Swamperts or whatever. Diversity is the spice of life!
  • You are restricted to one team line-up for the whole tournament. What you register with us is what you have to make use of for the entire duration of the tournament. Choose wisely.
  • No Pokémon can hold the same item in a single team. So for example, if you have a Skarmory holding Leftovers, you cannot also have a Slaking holding Leftovers in the same team.
  • No Mega Evolutions allowed. Due to compatibility issues and the struggle with more Overpowered Megas such as Mega Lucario, Mega Kangaskhan, or Mega Blaziken, we decided a blanket ban would be best. Maybe Sun and Moon will fix that, but whatever, it is not to be in Generation 6.
  • The moves Swagger and Flatter are not allowed for being unsportsmanly and frustrating. Likewise, all Evasion-boosting moves are banned for being overly luck-based and difficult to counter without a forced switch-out move. Evasion-boosting abilities and items are still fine.
  • Absolutely NO hacked Pokémon are allowed. If you are found out to have any hacked Pokémon on your team, you will be instantly disqualified from the tournament, and may suffer harsher discipline from the Awards Staff.
  • The following Pokémon are banned from the tournament:
    Spoiler (click to show/hide)
INSTRUCTIONS
  • Provide your Friend Code to your opponent and add them to your Friends List so you can play with each other. If you are not shy about revealing your Friend Code, you can post it in the thread publicly and we will add it next to your name on the sign-ups.
  • On the "Player Search System," click on "Internet" on the top. Connect to the Internet.
  • Upon connection, tabs with "friends," "acquaintances," and "passersby" will appear. Your friends will appear under the friends tab, naturally.
  • Select the friend you are battling with under that tab, and select battle.
  • Once the rules for the battle comes up, keep it on "Normal Rules". You will be following a mixture of Normal Rules and Flat Rules as imposed by us, the hosts.
  • Leave "Number of Players" as "Two-Player Match" and leave the Handicap off.
  • Select Confirm.
  • Select Yes on the next screen.
  • You do not have to use Game Chat, so that option is completely up to you all.
  • Save your game on the next screen.
  • Once you connect, review your Pokémon list or bag if necessary. Make sure to follow all the restrictions we've put in place, or else you will be disqualified. Once you have done that, choose "BATTLE, START!"
  • Select all six of your Pokémon in whatever order you would like and hit "confirm."

when the *bleep* Stooben will write a song about Packy's amazing arse
I'm still waiting on a format that can hold a song that large.

But in the meantime...
Rest in peace, Walkazo.

Rest in peace, Walkazo.

Can we have some clarification on this part here?

Absolutely NO hacked Pokémon are allowed. If you are found out to have any hacked Pokémon on your team, you will be instantly disqualified from the tournament, and may suffer harsher discipline from the Awards Staff.

Hacked Pokemon means a Pokemon with illegal moves/abilities/stats right? If so, the online (more often than not) DOES prevent such Pokemon from being used for trading/battling.

But suppose like I had my Shiny Umbreon with the IVs/EVs/Nature I want and has a legit moveset and everything else (I just didn't take the time to breed it myself, I had a friend generate it for me forever ago lol), is that ok or nah? It is still considered legit to use (since it still works online). =P

In any case, sign me up:

I'd like to cast my metaphorical hat into the lot. My friend code is 1994-0177-0389, and I'll be using Pokémon Y. I look forward to battling the bunch of you.

I'll join but not a fan of the no hacked Pokemon rule because I don't feel like wasting hours grinding a competent team, and hacking speeds up the proccess. I'll find my FC later.

EDIT: Read thread and I see what the rule means now.

I don't know how I feel about Pokemon hacked in with perfect stats. They're not illegal, but something feels off to me about people having the luxury of being able to easily hack them in when other players have to settle for imperfect Pokemon or spend hours getting ones with perfect stats. I can understand hacking in more professional settings where there's money and glory at stake, but in a more casual tournament, it seems a little... unfair.

However, it isn't technically illegal, and so long as they still have abilities and moves they normally would have, it shouldn't be a problem. I'm just a little unsure what to think of the whole situation.
Rest in peace, Walkazo.
