To get the Coral-Eye Badge, does the picture have to be good? Because my art sucks.

This looks like a lot of fun and a great way to get the community involved. Heck, even I may give it a go. ;)

Every PC has Paint, and I assume every mac comes with its own equivalent of Paint.

2nd badge:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9seWmjweZ8w

3rd badge: Weavile: they have sharp claws too cut through almost any opponent. If they can't, they use there impressive speed to increase the impact of there NIGHT SLASH

4th badge: If pokemon were real, I would live a noturnal life, learning to live the way dark types do, under the midnight moon

Badge 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1hcnHyB ... re=related (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1hcnHyBfQk&feature=related)

Badge 3: Shaymin: The flowers on its body resemble GRACIDEA. As such, this flower is often given to show gratitude in honor of SHAYMIN.

Badge 4: If Pokemon were real, I would've embarked on a journey to see as many different kinds as I could and make some real friends out of the ones I journey with. Even in my adult life, I think that my Pokemon and I would benefit each other every day.

Well done Blaumager! You qualify for the tournament! :D

Triforce Saturn

Sea Ruby Badge: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvQsTIe-KRM

Spike Shell Badge: Shuckle: It's shell is filled with the berries it hoards. While it hides inside it's shell, it eats some of the berries while others turn into an exquisite juice.

Jade Star Badge: If Pokemon were real, I'd probably do what any sensible child would do. Abandon their entire family at the age of 10 to go have fun with the creatures that exist in the world. But nah, jokes aside, if pokemon were real, I'd probably be move involved with... well, life in general. I mean, just the traveling, the battling, and all the fun stuff you can DO with pokemon, life would just end up being a whole lot more enjoyable.

Yuso

Alright Triforce, you're all set!

Just a reminder, for those participating in the tournament, it is restricted to gen 1 pokemon with Zapdos, Moltres, Articuno, and Dragonite limited to one or the other. No held items as well. So choose your strategy carefully!

Sea Ruby Badge - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BUTveMWzMKQ

Spike Shell Badge - Pikachu: An electric mouse native to Kanto, but has been introduced in Hoenn and Sinnoh through the Safari Zone and Pokemon Mansion respectively. Often it becomes a nuisance it people's houses, so residents often have to use Pika-Choke, Kanto's number 1 selling rat poison, in order to get rid of them.

Jade Star Badge - If Pokemon were real, we'd be leaving home at the age of ten :omg:

Er. a bit disturbing for the 3rd badge but okay xD
All you need is the Coral-Eye Badge and you're in Muzy!

xD. Sorry, a crazy friend of mine thought of Pika Choke, and I just couldn't resist putting it over here.

BTW I sent a terribly drawn Pika to you :D

I have a question about the Orange Island tourney.

Are we allowed to use the 3 Pokemon that were introduced in Gen 2, but native to Kanto? (Houndour, Murkrow, and Slugma) Plus, it will give us a chance to use Dark type Pokemon, since none of the original 151 are Dark.

(I wanted to know this so I can decide who the final member of my team is. I already have 5 EV trained Pokemon ready _awesome_.)

Yuso
04-28-2010, 04:10 AM
Only pokémon 1 - 149 are allowed with the limit on the birds and dragonite.

Not many entries eh? Well, the tournament festivities are set to start on 5/14 so lets get some action going!

Blaumagier

5/14, eh? I am sad to say this but I think I'm going to have to drop from this one. I was unable to get my team together for it so far and still have a ways to go... I'll keep trying though.

pkGamerB

I don't want to put my name in this too early, but I already have three Pokemon from previous teams that I can use for this. The fourth all depends on me getting a decent nature by resetting, so I just need to breed the last two. If I can finish with my last three team members by the middle of next week, I'll enter.

I doubt I'll get a gym badge before then :P

05-04-2010, 07:55 PM
I'd enter this, just for the sake of doing the gym badges. :P I'm no good at Pokemon battling, so it's a no go.

Triforce Saturn
05-04-2010, 08:05 PM
So then, it's just me and Weavile? Awesome tournament :lol:

So much competition i'm not sure what to do!

Kooriken
05-04-2010, 09:48 PM
Hey hey hey! Who said you could start without me? And Dark Weavile, how dare you take my favorite Poke'mon?!?! I guess I'll just have to go with my second favorite then!

1. Horribly Paint-Drawn Umbreon should be incoming to your inbox.

2. Umbreon FTW (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9Yqx97y7IA&feature=related)

3. Umbreon, the Moonlight Poke'mon. The rings on this Poke'mon glow beautifully during moonlit nights.

4. My life would have been so much better growing up with Poke'mon! I would have always had a friend to talk to, to comfort me, and to play with! Plus I would get to grow up alongside something akin to a brother since I'm an only child.

Yuso

Well done Kooriken! :]

Good luck with everybody else though!

Yeah? Well..... _objection_ my avatar has Weavile in it! And not just a sprite either! SO THERE!

Okay, if I can defeat Code in my match with him on Wednesday, I'll be qualified for the tourney!

Good stuff! The tournament is THIS FRIDAY! So lets shake a tailfeather.

I hope it's not too late, I'm just about finished with my gym entries. Unfortunately, I couldn't finish my team, but I think I have enough battle ready gen 1 Pokemon to manage. :P

Sea Ruby Badge - Swellow vs Swellow (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=689UEyu15Qs)

Spike Shell Badge - Swellow: This Pokemon strikes down foes with its blinding speed. When forced into tough situations, Swellow's fighting spirit causes its attack power to increase dramatically.

Jade Star Badge - If I had grown up with Pokemon, I'd spend all of my time training to be the very best. No one would be able to overcome the bonds that my companions and I shared. I'd find ways to win using my favorites, not just Pokemon who are strong.

I'm almost done with my drawing, so I'll PM that soon.

Still waiting on Triforce and Kooriken. :o

Edit: Since Kooriken has not responded to Triforce's challenge, for the sake of time, I am declaring Triforce the winner by default. So up next, it's Triforce vs pkGamerB to for the win.

pkGamerB

Saturn and I just had our battle. He gave me a tough challenge, but I was able to pull off the victory in the end. Good game, man. :)

my fave is rhyperior!!!!!
1st: (how do i post it???)

2nd badge: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBsv6ZV02O4&feature=fvsr

3rd badge: RHYPERIOR: this pokemon has muscles of pure stone and has the strength to crush anything not holy. beware of the stone despencers in it's palms-they are deadly.

4th badge: rhyperior were real and mine, i would go EVERYWHERE with it, live in a cave with it if nessisary, and speak it's language. it would be my body guard and i would be its pal.

Sorry bud, this tournament was over last month. :P

You can still challenge the gym leaders, though.
