So, I came back here recently and looked at my "Psypoke Tourny" topic and found out it got a whopping 19 votes for yes! That means that there's well enough interest to start. Anyway, I'm looking for 8-16 sign-ups at least. The offical server is Smogon (nb.smogon.com) but I don't care where you do your matches as long as you get them done. This is planned to be done out over a period of time, unlike the other tournaments we tried where we tried to finish it all in one night. Okay? Okay. So here are the rules.

Rules

No OHKO moves (No Horn Drill, Fissure, Guillotine, or Sheer Cold)
No Evasion moves (No Double Team or Minimize)
Sleep Clause
Species Clause
XD moves WILL be allowed
Freeze Clause
No Self-KO allowed on last pokemon
No Ubers
This is ADV OU Tournament. This means, no ubers. If you are using ubers, then you are disqualified. You can, however, use pokemon from the OU, BL, UU, NU, and NFE (not fully evolved) tiers. We will be using the Smogon Tiers, because they are adequetly set up.

http://www.smogon.com/advance/tiers

1. Siphai
2. Krisp [Eliminated]
3. Kirke [Eliminated]
4. FireStarter
5. Blue Baby Dragon [Eliminated]
6. Sneaky_Sneasel [Eliminated]
7. Mew Champ151 [Eliminated]
8. Gardevoir~ [Eliminated]
9. TheCyberMew [Eliminated]
10. ChroniclerC [Eliminated]
11. DragonPhoenix [Eliminated]
12. Neutral777
13. Sandslash
14. explodus [Eliminated]
15. GolfBall [Eliminated]
16. Frost [Eliminated]

Luck/Chance based items, such as Brightpowder/Quick Claw/Focus Band etc. are banned. I don't care to hear your argument on why they are good and should be allowed, because you've never truely known how bad they are unless your +6 Dragon Dance Salamence gets killed by a stupid Focus Band Walrein.

Just to up the ante for this tournament, the winner will get 50 Psybucks!

Alrighty then, the tournament has begun!

Okay, here are the fourth round match ups.

Winners Bracket

Siphai
vs.
Firestarter

Losers Bracket

Sandslash
vs.
Neutral777

Please get these matches done as quickly as possible. You have until THE 18th of AUGUST FRIDAY! Since there are less matches, they should get done a lot quicker.

Okay then, you can also see a representation of the bracket at

http://www.bracketmaker.com/tmenu.cfm?e ... Tournament

mod edit: http://www.bracketmaker.com/tmenu.cfm?& ... Tournament that should work


You do have to be a member though, but the registration is very easy. You can also enter in your prediction for the bracket, as there will be a prize for the winner with the most predictions (10 Psybucks).

Sure, I may be a bit rusty, but I'm game for a casual tourny. I'll need to re-download NB, though. :roll:

As long as it not within the next week (exams), count me in. I'll have to sharpen up my NB skills though.

You know, you realy should point it out when you go and decide to change the rules. I'm out if you can't handle a little luck.

I already said no Double Team, and that's basically no brightpowder already. The other hax moves are really heterosexual to begin with and shouldn't really be allowed because of how they can really mess up a game (RE: Example at the top). By the way, that edit has been up there for at least 3-4 days.

Also, what's wrong? Are you afraid that you can't win without luck? Afraid of actually using skill? =/ Sorry if this is harsh, but this is supposed to be a tournament of who has the best skill, not who can manipulate luck the best.

EDIT: Found Sandslash on Netbattle and battled him. I was up 4-2 when he forfeited. gg[/b]

Do you go and cry "WTF HAX!!!1!!!1" when a crit takes out your Curse-lax? If you don't like my items, there are moves available to deal with them. I've already argued my case over in a different thread, and neither of us are going to have our minds changed.

So what does that tell you? Just deal with the tournament! My tournament, my rules obviously. I say no hax items, so there are no hax items. It's as simple as that.

I have a few small questions about the tourney...

Shouldn't "No Spectators Allowed" be enforced to prevent scouting?

I am pretty sure it is not allowed, but just for reference, are people allowed to make edits to their team between rounds?

Spectators are allowed, because chances are, you aren't going to find the person you'll play next round, playing their match against their opponent.

Also, another reason why it is allowed is because, yes, you can make modifications between rounds. You can even change the entire team if you want, as long as it stays within the rules.

End Battle! Krisp wins!
Score: 0 to 3

And, FireStarter won his match with Frost. 0:2, iirc.


Edit: Also, CC, stop whining and just deal with the rules. Those items are not a necessity to win. =/
