Welcome, gentlemen! Perhaps you're wondering why I've called you here. It's because I have a proposition for you. This proposition is to ROCK THE FUCK OUT WITH OUR POKEYMANS!

BlueBlue defeated me, and in doing so, became to first to legitimately acquire of the title The Best Like No On Ever Was! Congratulations, BlueBlue.

Everyone else, start training so you can pound him into a bloody pulp come the 27th!

Tournament Rules:
-Sleep Clause: you may not put more than one of your opponent's Pokemon to sleep at a time.
-Species Clause: your team must be comprised of six different species of Pokemon.
-Item Clause: No two Pokemon on your team may be holding the same item.
-Suicide Clause: If both players are down to their last Pokemon, the player with the first Pokemon to hit 0 HP is the loser. In other words, using moves like Self Destruct and Explosion cause you to lose, even if it kills your opponent. However, using a move with a recoil that kill both you and your opponent is a win for you.
-When a round begins, PM a list of which 6 species of Pokemon you're using to your opponent (while this is officially a rule, I can't technically enforce it, so obviously there's lots of leniency here). You must have your match and post the results in this thread within 24 hours of the round starting. If this does not happen, a judgment will be made on which player receives a bye to the next round. I will be the one making this judgment unless I'm one of the people who didn't do his round.
-I have the final say in any and all discrepancies, other than ones that I'm involved in.
-You must use the same six Pokemon with the same four moves for the duration of the entire tournament.
-No Legendary Pokemon whatsoever.
-No Wobbuffet, no Wynaut.
-Until the start of Round 1, these rules are subject to change.
-Breaking any of these rules will result in instant disqualification.

You have until 12 AM EST Friday to send me a PM confirming that you're still interested in participating in the tournament. If I don't get the PM, I'm going to assume that you're no longer interested and/or available, and disqualify you

Also, if you'd like to drop out, send me a PM saying that, too.

What this thread is for:

-Trash talking
-Questions
-Reporting victories
-Requesting to spar with fellow tournament players
-Mostly trash talking though

If what you want to say isn't included in that list, take it to the main Pokethread.

The Hall of Hey Fuck You For Beating All of Us

Because this is a smaller tournament, the Hall of Hey Fuck You For Beating All of Us is not open this time around. However, I thought maybe if you maggots could see what a real champion looks like, it might inspire you or something, so I'm posting the Hall anyway:

WINNER:

    I say the finalists should try their best to youtube the entire match.

    And what's this about PMing your opponent your team? Does that mean you can change teams in between rounds? And why are you allowed to know what pokemon your opponent has before the battle, doesn't that take something away from the tournament?

    Oh now I see the no changing in between rounds rule

    But I still don't understand why we need to tell our opponents our team

    I think the idea behind it is that people who want to play on PBR see their opponents team before they fight, so it's to make it fair to everyone.

    I'll do whatever my opponent wants, though. I'd rather go in blind, and if they want to do the same, I'm fine with that.

    Like I said, it's not a heavily enforced rule. You don't have to send your opponent your line-up, I'm just requesting you to.

    Personally, I like it when both people know the other guy's team. It adds more tension and doesn't let you fall back on the element of surprise.

    aw you called me a real champion that's so nice

    I am a large advocate of pokemon-telling prior to battle

    Looking at the battle roster this looks like it's going to be very competitive

    Man, I wish I became that attached to a team. I mean, I love my Pokés, but as a whole team of 6, I think they're missing something.

    Maybe I'm just longing for my old team that consisted of Dragonite, Articuno and Pikachu in Stadium :(

    i am too team-building oriented to get attached

    the pokemon know that this is their only chance to prove to me they deserve a spot

    and even then sometimes they do not move on (for instance my breloom and ambipom who more than proved themselves)

    finally named my pokemon for this championship though

    This tournament is single-elimination. The bigger tournament on the 27th is Swiss.

    Ah, digging up old posts, I got confused when you explained how a Swiss system worked in a post about the small tournament, but single elimination it always was.

    My goodness, I am in severe danger of getting knocked out immediately. My team only has one dirty trick, I hope I am able to pull it off.

    See, that's why I use Pokemon I want to use, even if I won't do so well. I wuvs my Hitmontop, Leafeon, Magmortar, Blastoise, Miltank, and Umbreon. I wouldn't be able to like all these OU things (exception for Umbreon since he still can die if hit hard enough unlike Wobbufett or Dusknoir) since they are so commonplace.

    But how often has Hitmontop been used at all? Very rarely, and there's a good amount of pride in hearing an opponent curse under their breathe when the 'Top dishes out the pain.

    Fear the Top. Bow before the Top. Bow!

    Hitmontop is on my current team but he's actually my weak link I'm considering replacing. I think I'm going to replace him with something that was on my GBA team but got wrecked by the new physical/special system. It might still be usable after all.

    And I can't imagine using Pokemon just because they're good. I'd commit Pokemon suicide if I had a Blissey on my team.

    Chimecho is never never never leaving my team ever. Besides I have a huge Psychic weakness so I really need to rebalance.

    Anyway Shujin, I'm not saying that you didn't deserve to win the championship because it obviously takes a lot to be able to win against several teams without changing anything. However, it means more to win by using a team of unlikely riff-raff than to use really OU guys like Blissey. I'm sure I could do better if I ditched Crobat, Chimecho, and Froslass for stronger Pokemon but I wouldn't feel good about my victories.

    Ah, I see.

    Yeah, it's much more satisfying to win with UU stuff than OU stuff. One glance at your team and pretty much any website devoted to Pokemon can easily say that your team is defintely OU (exception might be Ambipom, but it's still really annoying to fight).

    Although how you managed with a team that gets killed by a Fighting type is beyond my understanding.

    In all seriousness, although I would like to win at least one match, I kind of hope I don't win. I would feel bad* for beating you with my high-ou team, and my general lack of battle experience. It would be terrible if the tournament was won by some clueless newb with ou guys twice.
    *for y'all.

    There's nothing wrong with winning using OU guys since it takes skill to use them just like any Pokemon. It's just that the victory is sweeter when you beat an OU team with a creative team.

    Heh, nothing wrong with it, yet a victory with them doesn't mean as much.

    It's for that reason I hesitated about using what I did... but with how long it takes me to breed ivs, I couldn't justify using pokemon when I knew of something that could do the same thing but better. I'm sure it's more awesome to win using pokemon that aren't as strong, but I don't have the skill to come up with clever uses for overlooked 'mans.

    Hmph, a lot of talk from me apologizing like I have already accomplished something, when in all likelihood Shujin will tear me apart in the first round.

    If I had been any more deriding I might have gotten banned since I received an instant 3 degree infraction/jail for calling people faggots.

    Every time there is a tournament champion, in the next tournament someone should build a team just to counter their last team used, if they decide to keep using the same stuff

    OU is Overused, typically the strongest pokemon other than legendaries.

    Underused is underused, typically the weakest pokemon (there is one category below it, that is "Never Used")
