well I think TSG will have there hands full getting all the 491 pokemon so I don't think a tournament will happen.
Maybe off site then. Since only those in the room can play Pokémon, then perhaps someone else could setup another stream for the tourney. I don't think the idea should be completely dismissed, as it can be done. It'll take some planning though,

I don't think you will be able to stream 1 on 1 battles. If you want I wouldn't mind setting up a bracket for whoever wants to enter the tournament. I would have to set up each battle at a time around my schedule tho because I will most likely have to work within that 72 hour time. I could host and even come up with some kind of prize for the winner. It could all be done in chat, and the commentator could just announce the winners as I feed them to him.

On WiFi, it will set your levels to level 100 if you choose it, so you don't have to worry about what level your Pokémon are.

Yes, in fact, It will be a rule that you must both be playing level 100 battles so that it is a fair game. I may be in the tournament, but not everyone will battle me. I could be out first round!

I'm thinking of the prize... Maybe I could buy one of the GBA Pokemon games and play, capturing every legendary in the game and use those as prizes? Or possibly just designing a 1 of a Kind T-shirt.

Oh and as for connecting to wifi I will post detailed instructions in the official topic if this is indeed what I do for the speedgammers given permission..

Well I have a shiny Charizard! Not that it makes it any more powerful but he is still awesome. I hatched him and was like "Holy ****" My girlfriend just looked at me like "What is wrong with him?"

Anyway, if a tournament happens and if I enter, then gratz to whoever gets to beat on me; cuzz I usually only use BL and UU Pokemon. :P But I will try and train a Dragonite, IF I HAVE THE PATIENCE.

I've heard no objections to my heading this off.. So I want to know what would you like the reward to be? I could set up some sort of package of Legendary Pokemon.. But I would have to work for them because I don't want to give anything that's traded from the internet because of too many clones and hacks.

PrincePu

I would TOTALLY win if you did a Wii Points card code. Because I'm running short if EB comes out!

All I need to see are the words "Pokemon" and "Tournament" in the same sentence and I'm in.

Does anyone else here EV train?

I've never EV trained but, I would guess anyone who does has a better chance of winning because the rules will be you must battle the lvl 100 battle..

With all this tournament talk, i might join in as well. I probably will lose, but that doesn't mean i cant join in and have fun! :)

Yep.. So, I have a little over a month to come up with a prize for the winner in the midst of dealing with a promotion at work, which will put me training for that position..

hey wallace I think you should talk to britt because no one except britt/chase can really give a go for anything. you are of course free to do a tournament stream by the side of the marathon but with britt saying ok we will not promote it.

I think a tournament is a cool idea. If u wanted to keep us udated in the chat, we could announce the winner

So how exactly is this thing going to go down? How many people are in it? Are the brackets set up?

eternalflame34
11-29-2008, 11:21 AM
A tournament would be awesome. The only thing is I think it needs to be set up so anyone can join in late. If all the brackets get set up now, then people who find out about the marathon after it is started won't be able to play.

I have an idea how to work it in so no pre signing up would be necessary, but it might be kind of unorganized. Basically there would be a thread with a first post being constantly updated. People post when they want to join, then they get placed in Tier 1. Whenever somebody else in tier 1 is ready to fight, they fight and post the results on the thread. The winner can move to tier 2, while the loser gets eliminated. (or maybe they could have another chance.) It could continue on like that, one person moving forward, the other getting eliminated until one winner is left. The main post would be continuously edited with who is in what tier, (making new ones as people move forward), and who has been eliminated, (to stop people from trying twice, or maybe they could get a set amount of chances.) There should probably be one official topic where only match results/sign ups should be posted , and then a general chat about it.

Plus, making brackets would mean everyone would have to be on at the same time as their opponent which would probably get complicated. This way, as long as two people are on, they can fight.

Wow lol _dead_ really long post. Sorry if its too long to read.

My problem is not how to get the tournament done. It's finding the time or money to come up with the prize. I am taking suggestions/donations for the First, Second, and Third prize packs if anyone is willing to help out.

Okay Well, than everyone agrees... There will be no prize tho I will photoshop a championship metal and run it by thespeedgamers and see if they would be willing to use it. It should probably look a lot like the metal you get for your pokemon after defeating the elite 4. I'll try and post a new official topic on how everything will go down with the tournament no later than a week before.

I never planned on signing people up before the event. (Maybe a day before allow early registration) I understand everyone has different schedules so The first few battles you do may be flexible. But the final battles will be tough. I also have to work and I don't know what will be going on at that time with my work schedule so we'll see... Perhaps I could set up the bracket and everything and team up with one of you guys in helping maintain it while I'm away.. such as updating it and setting up the next teir of battles.

I just realized something very important! We need some ground rules for battling! These include things like uber use and having more than one Pokémon asleep at once.

here are the rules i want:
1) no ubers, legends, or hacks (ex: no lugias :cry: )
2) only one type of item can be used (ex: only 1 quick claw allowed)
3) if anyone believes you hacked, you could be disqualified if proven



we need more though

1. Ubers are one thing, but there's no reason to ban legends. Ex: Articuno, Registeel, Celebi, etc.
2. Right about that.
3. Good luck with that.

Using Hacks would automatically disqualify you.. But as far as legends I don't want someone filling their team with legends. When you said we need rules I already had that part figured out. I will allow 1 legend of your choice in your team. Anything more than that will disqualify you. before each battle the team that person uses will have to be send to me. Perhaps when you register I'll have you register 12 pokemon you select and during the tournament you can only use those 12 in any order you chose. Maybe 2 Legends but only 1 legend for each battle. I really don't know.

Hmm December 19th is coming quickly I guess I should get off WoW for a while and figure this stuff out huh? Okay I'm looking at my work schedule and it seems that I work on the 19th from 7am to 5pm est which means I'll be home at 6pm est or 5pm cst Next part of the good news is I'm off work 20th and 21st.

I will have the official Tournament topic up tomorrow with details and rules.

Well, it is his tournament, he is managing the rules, prizes etc. Except I'm not sure if it's technically the official tournament, but it still is his tournament.
As for the 12 pokemon, I think it should be a little more too. Or maybe no limit at all. Then again I can't actually participate in the tournament because I don't have any newer pokemon games.

So, I'm curious, what Tier list are we going off of here? Smogon's? If so, I might be unable to compete since I have a Garchomp on my team and its replacement isn't yet finished.
