DCTP Pokemon Battle Tournament!

Postby Conia » January 31st, 2013, 8:19 pm

Welcome to the greatest DCTP Tournament of all times! Featuring the well-known Pokémon games, I present you...

DCTP POKÉMON BATTLE TOURNAMENT

This will be a simple knockout tournament, featuring all the following battle styles:
- Single 3vs3
- Double 4vs4
- Triple 6vs6
- Rotation

Everyone is invited to join! The requirements are:

- Nintendo DS/DSi/3DS console
- Pokémon game, 5th Gen versions (Black/White/Black 2/White 2)
- Wi-Fi connection with Open or WEP security (If you have questions about this requirement, PM me!)

For signing up, just post in this thread about it! We need lots of players!

Rules:
- Forbidden Pokémon: The following Pokémon won't be allowed to be selected in this tournament, this is to keep a certain balance in the Pokémon chosen: Arceus (All Forms), Blaziken (With Speed Boost), Darkrai, Deoxys, Dialga, Excadrill, Garchomp, Giratina (Both Forms), Groudon, Ho-oh, Kyogre, Kyurem-B, Kyurem-W, Lugia, Manaphy, Mewtwo, Palkia, Rayquaza, Reshiram, Serperior (with Contrary), Shaymin-S, Thundurus, Volcarona and Zekrom.
- All moves are allowed.
- All items are allowed.
- All the Pokémon selected must have different index pokedex number. In other words, you can't have the same Pokémon twice or more, even if it is just a different form of it.
- All the Pokémon selected must have different items. In other words, the 6 held items in your party must be all different. Similar held items, for example Magnet and Zap Plate, are allowed. This rule only applies to the starting team, if any Pokémon receives an item that's already held by another Pokémon in their party, it is allowed, for example if Trick, Thief, Recycle, Pickpocket, etc come into effect in the battle.
- All the remaining Abilities are allowed.

How to decide a winner:
In case the battle can't be finished, due to connectivity issues or one of the players having to leave, the remaining player has the power to decide, depending on the context of the battle:
- If the leaving person has more alive Pokémon than the opponent or they have the same amount of Pokémon alive, then they should start the battle over. If a winner needs to be decided over the unfinished battle, the other participants will be jury to decide who should be selected as winner.
- If the leaving person has less alive Pokémon than the opponent, then the opponent can declare themselves the winner of the battle or offer the leaving person to start the battle over.
- If the battle is unfinished with both players having all their Pokémon alive, it is mandatory to start over.
If a player's final Pokémon used Selfdestruct, Explosion, Destiny Bond, or FinalGambit, and both players' final Pokémon faint as a result, the player who used the move loses that game.
- If a player's final Pokémon used Double Edge, Volt Tackle, Flare Blitz, Take Down, Submission, Brave Bird, Wood Hammer, Head Smash, Struggle, or Wild Charge,or was holding Life Orb, and both players' final Pokémon faint as a result, the player who used the move wins that game.
- If both players' final Pokémon faint due to damage from a weather condition, such as Hail or Sandstorm, the player whose Pokémon faints last wins the game.
- If a Pokémon's Ability (such as Rough Skin, Aftermath, Liquid Ooze, or Iron Barbs) or held item (such as Rocky Helmet), results in each player's final Pokémon fainting, the player whose Pokémon had the Ability or held item wins the game.

This will be a simple knockout tournament, featuring all the following battle styles:

- Nintendo DS/DSi/3DS console
- Pokémon game, 5th Gen versions (Black/White/Black 2/White 2)
- Wi-Fi connection with Open or WEP security (If you have questions about this requirement, PM me!)

For signing up, just post in this thread about it! We need lots of players!

Rules:
- Forbidden Pokémon: The following Pokémon won't be allowed to be selected in this tournament, this is to keep a certain balance in the Pokémon chosen: Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo, Mew, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Celebi, Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Latios, Latias, Groundon, Kyogre, Rayquaza, Jirachi, Deoxys, Mespirit, Azelf, Uxie, Heatran, Cresselia, Darkrai, Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Arceus, Victini, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Tornadus, Thundurus, Landorus, Reshiram, Zekrom, Kyurem, Keldeo, Meloetta, Genesect. Altern forms of these Pokémon are also banned.
- All moves are allowed.
- All items are allowed.
- All the Pokémon selected must have different index pokedex number. In other words, you can't have the same Pokémon twice or more, even if it is just a different form of it.
- All the Pokémon selected must have different items. In other words, the 6 held items in your party must be all different. Similar held items, for example Magnet and Zap Plate, are allowed. This rule only applies to the starting team, if any Pokémon receives an item that's already held by another Pokémon in their party, it is allowed, for example if Trick, Thief, Recycle, Pickpocket, etc come into effect in the battle.
- All Abilities are allowed.

Debatable rules:
These little details in the rules are meant to be discussed between the participants.
- Semi-Legendaries Pokémon allowed? Volcarona, Garchomp, Wobbuffet and Slaking are the ones I can think of which have stats or Abilities very similar to the power of Legendaries, feel free to add more. They can be considered too strong for the average Pokémon, but in my opinion they all can be defeated with good strategy and should be allowed in.
- Weather changing Abilities allowed? Drought, Snow Warning, Drizzle and Sand Stream. These abilities change the weather as soon as the Pokémon enters the battle and it will remain as such until the weather is changed again, either by a move or another one of the mentioned Abilities being brought in, or by an Ability that neutralizes weather, like Cloud Nine or Air Lock. In my opinion, they should be banned, simply because they last forever, not 5 turns like the moves or more with the correct held item. If a trainer wants to use the weather to their advantage, have a Pokémon learn Sunny Day, Rain Dance, Sandstorm or Hail. To be exact, in my opinion Ninetales with Drought, Politoed with Drizzle, Abomasnow with Snow Warning, Tyranitar with Sand Stream or Hippowdon with Sand Stream should be banned. Feel free to add more Abilities.

How to decide a winner:
In case the battle can't be finished, due to connectivity issues or one of the players having to leave, the remaining player has the power to decide, depending on the context of the battle:
- If the leaving person has more alive Pokémon than the opponent or they have the same amount of Pokémon alive, then they should start the battle over. If a winner needs to be decided over the unfinished battle, the other participants will be jury to decide who should be selected as winner.
- If the leaving person has less alive Pokémon than the opponent, then the opponent can declare themselves the winner of the battle or offer the leaving person to start the battle over.
- If the battle is unfinished with both players having all their Pokémon alive, it is mandatory to start over.
If a player’s final Pokémon used Selfdestruct, Explosion, Destiny Bond, or FinalGambit, and both players’ final Pokémon faint as a result, the player who used the move loses that game.
- If a player’s final Pokémon used Double Edge, Volt Tackle, Flare Blitz, Take Down, Submission, Brave Bird, Wood Hammer, Head Smash, Struggle, or Wild Volt,or was holding Life Orb, and both players’ final Pokémon faint as a result, the player who used the move wins that game.
- If both players’ final Pokémon faint due to damage from a weather condition, such as Hail or Sandstorm, the player whose Pokémon faints last wins the game.
- If a Pokémon’s Ability (such as Rough Skin, Aftermath, Liquid Ooze, or Iron Barbs) or held item (such as Rocky Helmet), results in each player’s final Pokémon fainting, the player whose Pokémon had the Ability or held item wins the game.

legendary restrictions should be uber tier only, so stuff like articuno/zapdos/moltres, the sinnoh psychic trio, maybe the sinnoh warrior trio, and celebi should still be fine, volcorona however is broken as hell so that should be banned

weather abilities should be fine

Just a thought, though I can't join, should there be level restrictions? Or are you assuming people will be using their maxed out pokemon?

Not a single chance? D:
hopelessidiot wrote:Just a thought, though I can't join, should there be level restrictions? Or are you assuming people will be using their maxed out pokemon?

Battling rules already make every Pokémon over level 50 to be lowered down to 50 as well, so all the levels will be the same. There's a 'No restrictions' option that doesn't change the level of the Pokémon entered, but this also includes no restrictions on items or Pokémon, so it is just a Anything Goes :-X
