You guys will get your asses kicked.

I've been training my pokemon using a macho brace.

Mine are already trained.
Mario would like to point that he'll win and that you're not using your third person.

Macho Brace?

You don't know what you're doing, do you?

The Macho Brace does double EV gains, but that's pointless because the Power items give you +4 of whatever EV the Power Item gives, which is always more than the gain from the Macho Brace. For example, let's take Druddigon (who iirc gives +3 Atk EVs).

With Macho Brace - +3 HP EVs (Druddigon defeated) * 2 (Macho Brace) = +6 Atk EVs
With Power Bracer - +3 HP EVs (Druddigon defeated) +4 HP EVs (Power Bracer) = +7 Atk EVs

If you've got the money, Proteins and the like will also speed up EV training a bunch.

Re: Pokémon (Gen 5) Tournament

I prefer to grind off feathers from the bridge between Nimbasa and Driftveil rather than spending money.

Re: Pokémon (Gen 5) Tournament

I had a bunch of cash leftover from Elite Four runs and exploring the Seafloor Ruins, so I just went and spent a bunch of it on vitamins. Wasn't using it for anything else.

I tried grinding feathers but it took longer than actually grinding with the EV areas. Also I could never get the kind that I needed, which was annoying.

The best places to go are:

HP EVs: Icirrus City, the pond in the middle (100% chance, 2 HP EVs from Stunfisk)
Atk EVs: Route 1 (100% chance, both Lilipup and Patrat give 1 Atk EV)
Def EVs: Wellspring Cave (50% chance, Roggenrola gives 1 Def EV) This is the only one that isn't 100%.
Sp. Atk EVs: Celestial Tower (100% chance, both Litwick or Elgyem give 1 Sp. Atk EV)
Sp. Def EVs: Driftveil City, Surfing (100% chance, Frillish gives 1 Sp. Def EV)
Speed EVs: Route 1, Surfing (100% chance, Basculin gives 2 Speed EVs)

In Celestial Tower it helps if you go to the floor where the Nurse is so you can easily heal if needed.

For the 30th, 31st, 1st, and 2nd (so all three days for the single battles tournament and one day for the double battles tournament), Smasher and I currently have a tentative time of 7PM EST/EDT. We've still yet to decide on what to do for the final day (the 3rd) due to what we will have to fit in. Note it's tentative so it is subject to change, and if need be we will accommodate to fit the needs of the participants in a battle.

Details of how some things are going to work will be out soon (hopefully later today or tomorrow, we were discussing things earlier and then Smasher pinged out :'()

Um.

Also, the power items are like 16 BP each.

You only need one macho brace.

Well, for +3 EVs, sure.

But if you're only getting one EV from a Pokemon, then Macho Brace will give you two while Power ____ will give you five.

is 16 bp supposed to be a lot

because i've been grinding for the choice items, which are 48 bp each

besides, getting bp isn't that difficult. kinda time-consuming, but not very difficult.

The Power items help a lot with EV gaining in my experience. This way to max out Atk EVs, instead of having to kill 252 Patrat and Lilipup, I only have to kill 50 with Power Bracer and two without.

With Macho Brace it would be 126 Patrat and Lillipup to reach max Atk EVs. Which means I can get the job done in 41.2% (52/126) of the time it would take with a Macho Brace.

Re: Pokémon (Gen 5) Tournament

Mariotime11 (Drift) has told me in PM that he cannot participate. Just a head's up.

ALSO, NOTICE: Me and Smasher have decided that participants cannot change their teams in between battles. Sounds rather iffy for a Pokemon tournament to allow participants to change their team in between battles. I'll be adding this to the OP.


Also, thank you to the participants who have replied to my PM already! There are a few left who still need to get back to me, but I greatly appreciate the people who have replied already. So thank you guys again!
 
Re: Pokémon (Gen 5) Tournament

Sorry, but I'm going to need to drop out.

My Pokemon White game hasn't been working and it keeps on freezing for some reason. I don't think I can figure out what's the problem is in time.

Actually, hold up.

I have a team that can work in doubles.

If it isn't too late, I'll do both tournaments.
