PSR Competitive Battling Tournament

Post by RXFADEZ » Mon Aug 17, 2015 8:40 pm

Hey guys

I thought of this idea a little while ago, but wanted to get the marathon out of the way before trying to get anything going. I was discussing this with members of the Emerald Runners Skype chat and we've thrown a few ideas around.

We're going to try and get ten or more people to participate in a "draft" style league, where people take turn picking a Pokémon from a certain tier until everybody has twelve total Pokémon. Everybody will play each other once, and the person who has the best record is the winner.

Originally, I had planned to do this on official Nintendo systems (specifically 3DS/2DS and ORAS), but two issues were spotted:
1) Breeding Pokémon with different moves, IVs and natures and then EV training them for each individual fight would be heavily time consuming and would throw people off.
2) Not everybody has a 3DS/2DS and a copy of ORAS. Even people with just X/Y couldn't enter due to the new megas.

For these reasons, we largely agreed that doing it on Showdown would be a better option. It may not have the same feel as the actual games, but it will make it more inclusive and easier for people to play.

Any ideas/interest will be fantastic.

Thanks

I would be up for this, it would just depend on the dates and what not.

I'd probably join just for the heck of it, but I haven't done any competitive battling this gen. I just think it would be cool to join.

Certainly up for this, though fair warning I've only ever (and only will ever) use bug types in competative.

I like competitive battling, this could be really fun. We could redo something like this with different formats over again too, so if enough people showed interest it could definitely bring community closer

I think it might be a good idea to just have one battle per week or something. But you can the other person can arrange to have that battle on any day. This would mean more people could enter and allow people to find a time when both battlers are available.
