Q: Can I put 200PB on my sponsored Pokémon to stop others from outbidding me? If I can then I will.
I had to have a little think about this, but either way I guess the end result is the same, so I will say "yes," it's allowed.

Q: Do we pay the sponsorship PB now or later?
I'd prefer it if you pay later so I don't lose track of payments and things like that, but that's really more of a preference rather than a requirement. :)

Sure thing ;) Good luck with your new Pokemon.

Quote:

5PB on Haunter.

The maximum limit is 200PB, however the minimum increase is 5PB, or otherwise multiples of 5 (ie, 10, 15, 20.. etc..) The point of this rule is just to prevent people from increasing bids by 1 PB (or similar) every time. However, because DragoBoy has increased his bid to 200, that is the maximum limit, and therefore he cannot be outbid.

Well this is the first time I've run something like this, so some things might go a little differently than expected, but in the interest of not having too many rules that people will just skim through, I've decided to adopt rules that are easier to understand, instead of making people read through a large chunk of text just to make sure they want to do something that no one else wants to do. I don't really want to be writing a whole list of trivial rules (in many cases in which scenarios would be unlikely..), so I apologize in advance if you've read something and I haven't been very clear on it. I do hope that Ivysaur serves you well though, and good luck.

I'm cool with how you are running this, its just that Haunter and Blastoise were my fallback pokemon in Blue. I was just really pissed when I couldnt get back from DB.

Just want to point it out, Ninetales is erroneously in both Currently Sponsored and Currently Free lists.

Being able to put 200 PB on a Pokemon at once so no one else could even attempt to outbid seems a little unfair, but that's just my opinion. In any case, I'll put 20PB on my Arcanine just to...feel safe, I guess?
I'll also sponsor Victreebel {victreebel}, since free sponsorship is free. *shrugs*

Thanks for bringing that up to my attention, ShinyLucario. :)

Also you make a good point about the Psybucks limit, and yeah now you've explained it that way it does seem a little unfair. I'll remove the 200PB limit, and you guys can adjust your bids accordingly.

Just remember that the prize breakdowns are:
2000 for 1st
1000 for 2nd
500 for 3-4th
200 for 5-8th.

Samurott's just being a sore loser ;o and noa evilpenguinz alowd!! ...just kidding ;)

There's no benefit I see in putting psyducks onto any of my pokemon unless someone tries to outbid me for them, which would seem pointless because there's more than enough pokemon to go around, so I'll leave my babies how they is.

Edit: Changed my choices, since I haven't made payment yet. However, if I wanted to, could I put down 200 right now for somebody (or even all 3)?

This is now fixed, sorry about that, thanks for letting me know :)

Yes, however just remember that I've lifted the 200 PB restriction, so increasing your bid to 200 doesn't guarantee you'll get them.. However, it is a good precaution. Let me know what you want to do.

NEW: please note that sponsorship will close in 24 hours. If you already haven't done so, now is your last chance to sponsor! Still got some great Pokemon left, including 4th seeded Nidoking who went through prelim stages garnering a vote from every player, popular grass starter Venusaur in 9th seed, 11th seeded Nidoqueen and of course Dewgong, the 16th seeded contestant.

After the sponsorhip closes, I'll take about a day to draw up the brackets, and then we can start knocking Pokemon out, and seeing some good old showdowns.

So just so everyone's clear sponsorship will no longer be available after tomorrow (when I post). If you don't want to sponsor, that's fine, you can also still participate in voting and influencing battle decisions.

Wow, that sucks for Super_T. He's going to be pissed when he finds he missed this...
Anyways, do we send the PsyBucks to you? I kinda feel like a walking Chrismas Tree during an Air Raid with all this PsyBucks in my hand. Also, I put 50PB on Charmander and 50.37PB on Blastoise.

After the sponsorship period ends, this is just to ensure that no one outbids you after you've paid me.

Also, I've edited in your bid values into my previous post.

- DP

Special thanks goes to Serpentsounds for creating a visual page which shows which Pokemon haven't received sponsors yet, which Pokemon are seeded, and the Pokemon who have thus far been eliminated from the tournament. It's extremely helpful & easy to read, especially if you're one of those people who don't like scrolling down lists and large chunks of text. Try it out at http://battleroyale.soredemo.net/ (I will also be updating this link regularly, instead of reposting the updated list all the time, so if I haven't replied in a while check this link to see if your bids/votes have been updated!)

I will no longer be accepting any further bids on sponsored Pokemon, however, if you haven't sponsored yet and wish to, you can sponsor 1 unseeded Pokemon only, and you may do so before I reveal the bracket. You cannot outbid, or place values during this stage. (ie, first come first served basis).

WHAT HAPPENS NOW?
Once again, thanks to Serpentsounds (who has written out a RNG script for me) I have generated a bracket that I will reveal tomorrow. The first round will be in groups of 4, with only 1 Pokemon advancing from each match. Take a look at http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/8697/baseol.png for an example of how things will pan out.

After I reveal the full bracket, I will explain ROUND 1 rules, together with an example, and I'll probably start the tournament the day after.

Final list, updated through to Cherrygrove's post:

[1] Gengar (Edoc'sil)

PS: For those who bid on Pokemon, now is the time to pay! If you don't pay whatever value you placed on your Pokemon, unfortunately I will have to drop your sponsor status and you will not be able to re-sponsor another Pokemon. I will send out PMs reminding you all, if I haven't received payment.

THE KNOCKOUT BRACKETS:

Each Pokemon are split up into 4 different quarters, based on their seedings. The seeds all avoid each other in the first round.

NORTH QUARTER | EAST QUARTER | SOUTH QUARTER | WEST QUARTER

The winners of each quarter are all semifinalists, and the semifinals bracket will be redrawn.

ROUND 1 EXAMPLE
Since round 1 matches are in groups of 4 as opposed to 1v1, there are some round specific rules for these matches only.

ARENAS: Each match will be played on different TYPE ARENAS. This means that certain Pokemon will be given advantages, depending on their types. For example, a match might be between Venusaur, Flygon, Muk and Breloom. They're to be battling it on on the GROUND ARENA. Prior to the match, advantages/disadvantages will be applied to them. Venusaur, taking neutral damage, starts off on +0, Flygon has immunity to Ground (through its ability Levitate) so starts on +3, Muk has a weakness so starts on -1, and Breloom has a resistance so starts on +1. If, say, Magnemite was also in that group, because of the double weakness to ground, he would start on -2. Typically however, I will figure this all out.

So to get your Pokemon through to the next round, you have to vote for them through! This can be done simply by posting in the topic, (hopefully together with your reasons!) The Pokemon with the most votes at the end of a certain timeframe will advance to the next round. :o Remember that if you have sponsored a Pokemon, a vote for them becomes +3 instead of +1. I think about 4 matches will be running at once.

EXTRA VOTES:
Typically, everyone gets one vote each, however you will be able to buy extra votes. These can be bought via the Psybucks system, at 20PB for extra/anonymous votes. You must pay before the votes are counted. These are capped at 100PB per Pokemon for Round 1. This must be done through PM and not this thread, to myself. (Triple sponsor vote values do not apply for extra votes).

I'll leave this thread open for about 24 hours for questions, before I start the first round. In the meantime.. are you happy with your draw? Who do you think is your biggest threat? Having taken a look at the bracket, do you think you have what it takes to be the sponsor of the winner of the first Battle Royale? :o
