Let's go to the Rules:

Basically, you can only use Pokémon that are the same base color. For Pokemon that seem to have more than one dominant color, refer to this list of Pokémon by color (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/List_of_Pok%C3%A9mon_by_color) to clear things up.
The actual color of the Pokemon will count, not the shiny. For example: If your color is Red, you can use Charizard or Shiny Charizard. However, if you're going to use its mega form, you won't be able to use Mega Charizard X, since it's Black, only Mega Charizard Y.



Platform: 3DS


Battle Mode: Double


Each participant may take 6 Pokemon, but will only be able to use 4 of them



Banned Items:


Soul Dew


Banned Pokémon:


Arceus, Darkrai, Deoxys-A, Deoxys-N, Dialga, Giratina, Giratina-O, Groudon, Ho-Oh, Kyogre, Kyurem-W, Lugia, Mewtwo, Palkia, Rayquaza, Reshiram, Shaymin-S, Xerneas, Yveltal, Zekrom.







Endless Battle Clause: Any moveset on any Pokémon that is capable of intentionally causing an endless battle is banned from competitive play. Such as:

A Pokémon may not carry Recycle and hold a Leppa Berry in conjunction with Heal Pulse and Milk Drink, Moonlight, Morning Sun, Recover, Roost, Slack Off, Soft-Boiled, or Wish.
A Pokémon may not hold a Leppa Berry and carry Recycle and Pain Split on its moveset.
A Pokémon may not hold a Leppa Berry and carry Recycle and Fling on its moveset.


Moody Clause: Pokémon with the ability Moody are not permitted.
Evasion Clause: The moves Double Team and Minimize, in addition to the abilities Sand Veil and Snow Cloak, are not permitted in play.
OHKO Clause: A Pokemon may not have the moves Fissure, Guillotine, Horn Drill, or Sheer Cold in its moveset.
Sleep Clause: Only one Pokémon may be put to sleep on the opposing team at a time, if not induced by a move such as Rest.
Species Clause: Players cannot have two Pokémon with the same Pokédex number on the same team.
Pokémon may be up to level 50.




About the finals:
The winner will face the losers brackets' winner in a best of 3 games, but he will have an advantage of 1 game. If the winner of the losers brackets manages to defeat his opponent, there will be another best of 3 games match, but this time, none of them will have a head start nor advantages.
So, the matches losers won't be totally out until they lose at the losers brackets.



Dates:

You may subscribe to this tournament until August 27th 2014, by sending me a PM or by replying to this thread, so I'll update the main post with the confirmed players and then use a randomizer to decide the confrontations + color for each player.
The tournament should begin on October 10th 2014, so you'll have more than a month to breed your teams and whatever else.


*Due to some problems with a few participants, the begin date has been postponed so other participant could join and have time to build a team, and shall begin on Oct 10th instead of Sept 27th.

The winners of the first games will advance to the quarterfinals and the losers will play among each other in the losers bracket.


You may have three days to settle your battle for each stage of the tournament, and then send me the battle code via PM. I'll update the main post after watching it.

Notes:



These three days are for any unforeseen situations, commitments and similar things you may have, not to breed anything while you're making your opponent wait for your willingness to battle;
Don't forget to send me the battle code via PM instead of posting it here, or you'll be exposing strategies, both yours and your opponents'.




Prizes (Click the Links for Pictures):

1st Place: Event Shiny Jirachi (http://i.imgur.com/ZEnlGrC.jpg) from Kalos - Modest Nature, 6IV.

2nd Place: Xerneas (http://i.imgur.com/qUNn4FF.jpg) from Kalos (obviously) - Timid Nature, 5IV -Attack.

3rd Place: Since new megas were presented: Shiny Audino (http://i.imgur.com/UvkS8qP.jpg) from Kalos - Impish Nature, 5IV -Special Attack.

Tempted, if I had my new job tied down I'd join, but things are still a little up in the air for now.


I might join later on if I get a firm job offer before the deadline.

Rafflesiac

Bulbapedia doesn't mention the colors of Megas in the provided link.

Can we decide on their colorations here and now for reference?

Yep, however, only Charizard X really changes color.

Lancelot
August 18th, 2014, 11:50 PM
It really doesn't matter for the megas I guess, since you need to first use them without being a mega, so technically you need to be able to use the mon.
I think I might join.

Only in Charizard X's case, yes, it matters.

I'm definitely interested!
[edit]
Though I hope I get Black, since I already have 3 near-competitive Pokemon of that color.

I have a question though. In the rules you mentioned that the max level was 50 does the game mode automatically set the levels down to 50 if they are above or is it a stop training them at 50 thing? I have not done much online play at all.

Don't worry if your Pokemon levels are higher, the game automatically sets them down to 50!

Heart of the Star
August 20th, 2014, 12:27 PM
Excellent. That helps with stuff. How's the organising going anyway? Or are you being hindered by a lack of confirmed participants?

Artee
August 20th, 2014, 12:41 PM
I actually gave a bit more than a week for participants to subscribe to this challenge, and some of the users who would probably join still didn't see it's up. In the previous challenge I had like 9 participants and it was very good! So, if I have at least 9 people, it'll be good

Megas
August 20th, 2014, 12:42 PM
It's not that I don't want to, like I said, it's mostly related to my job hunt not leaving a lot of certainty about the next month or so.

Artee
August 20th, 2014, 12:44 PM
Sure, don't worry about that, TheMegas, I'll organize more tournaments in the future!

Meh
August 20th, 2014, 03:16 PM

Sure, why not? And welcome~

Meh
August 20th, 2014, 05:38 PM
Thanks. Do we get a new colour every match or do we stick with one through the entire thing?

Artee
August 20th, 2014, 05:47 PM
It'll be the same color for the entire thing, however you can change your team if you have other Pokemon to battle

Meh
August 21st, 2014, 09:47 AM
BTW, on weekdays I'm only available to play from 5-10 AM GMT -5.

Rafflesiac
August 21st, 2014, 10:30 AM
Ah, we still have Sleep Clause here.

Smogon Doubles instead of VGC Doubles, then?

Artee
August 21st, 2014, 11:43 AM
There are Smogon rules, even if I don't like Smogon. Because it's stupid when someone tries to put every pokemon of the other team to sleep. Sleep Clause is the rule I support the most.

Heart of the Star
August 21st, 2014, 11:46 AM
That would be annoying. But to be honest I find confusion causing moves and attract far more of a pain. that said though I think the rules you've put up are good and make sense so no complaints here.

Artee
August 21st, 2014, 11:50 AM
Well, unless you use a move like Confuse Ray, that the only purpose is to leave others confused, we have some moves like Dynamic Punch, Confusion and other things that MAY leave the foe confused besides the damage, so if your Pokemon hurts itself in all the 5 turns it's under confusion.. I'd call this bad luck haha

Rafflesiac
August 21st, 2014, 11:50 AM
I'm fine with that.

In case I get green, I know what not to do.

Artee
August 21st, 2014, 11:54 AM
Yeah, don't Spam Spore or Sleep Powder~
There's Taunt to avoid being put to Sleep by those moves, but even though, I'd not be happy at all if my opponent put all my team to sleep while he spams Swords Dance/Quiver Dance/Bulk Up/Dragon Dance and such, so I'm avoiding the stress here.
However, I don't mind losing after a good battle with my opponent

Heart of the Star
August 21st, 2014, 11:55 AM
I don't mind moves that have a chance of causing confusion like dynamic punch, if that gets me fair enough my luck ran out. But I really don't like it when someone just spams confuse ray at you and you can never hit them enough to kill them.

its a legit strategy and I'm not saying it should be banned or anything but it still makes me rage whenever it happens to me.

Artee
August 21st, 2014, 12:04 PM
This is annoying, indeed, but at least it's better than inducing your whole team to sleep. You may hurt yourself or not during the confusion period, so at least you have a good chance to make a move, however, in the case of the sleep condition, everytime you wake up you'll be put again to sleep. I really don't think this is a strategy of someone who knows how to play. Stall teams are also annoying, but it's still a strategy (even if the foe uses Recover/Roost/Softboiled/whatever until you faint by being Poisoned).
Actually, back then in Platinum I had an Umbreon just for that. It had Toxic/Confuse Ray/Moonlight/Protect or Payback with Leftovers. However, if I faced a Steel type I was doomed if I had only this Umbreon left, since they still had resistance against Dark type moves.

Heart of the Star
August 21st, 2014, 12:18 PM
You have a point there and I can see it but I haven't ever been on the receiving end of such a stratagem so I don't quite get the rage involved.

only I wouldn't have thought it would be that bad, don't all sleep causing moves have like 70% accuracy?

Rafflesiac
August 21st, 2014, 12:24 PM
Ugh, I hated Umbreon.

That little fox/weasel/cat/whatever took so many Focus Blasts to the face.

Spore is 100%, Sleep Powder is 75%.

Heart of the Star

Ouch, that is rather OP I can see why that needed a rule made about it.

Rafflesiac
August 21st, 2014, 12:39 PM
There's a reason that the only Pokemon with Spore are mushrooms and Smeargle.

Lycodrake

On the subject of confusion: Teeter Dance.

I do, when someone uses Darkrai and spams Dark Void all the way while the other bulks itself.


Sleep Powder is 75%.
Compound Eyes makes it 100%.


On the subject of confusion: Teeter Dance.
People who use this kind of move usually have a Pokemon with Oblivious by its side.
I like to use Teeter Dance having Lilligant together, or using Petal Dance with her after a Quiver Dance, most of the times.

Rafflesiac

No wonder my Vivillon was so reliable.

Artee
August 21st, 2014, 02:08 PM
It is. Especially spamming Quiver Dance after using Sleep Powder.
But well, Vivillon is one of my two favorite Bug types, the other is Scyther. I'm not fond of 99% of the other Bug types

Rafflesiac
August 21st, 2014, 02:20 PM

Masquerain too. How many other Bug/Flying types get ​HYDRO PUMP?

BUG-TYPE TALK YAY.
Compound-eyes Galvantula. Thunder. Bug Buzz. Giga Drain/Energy Ball. [insert fourth move]. Focus Sash. Profit. yaaay

Artee

This is completely insane. Masquerain is a small insect that can learn a strong move like Hydro Pump. Even by learning Scald it seems stupid.


And so Scyther continues to be deprived to learn Fly, and Garchomp to learn Dragon Dance. The Pokemon world is really hard to explain.

Rafflesiac
August 21st, 2014, 06:41 PM
Dragon Dance Garchomp would be an utter terror.

And if Jolteon can use Iron Tail, then Masquerain can use Hydro Pump.

Artee
August 21st, 2014, 07:18 PM
As I said:


The Pokemon world is really hard to explain.

There are thousands of examples. Wooper doesn't have arms and can use Ice Punch.

The pokemon X being able to use the move Y, doesn't mean it can't be stupid.

What if a pokemon has Effect Spore as an ability and that ends up casuing the sleep? Would that DQ them, or would it be chalked up to bad luck?

Same with moves like Relic Song.

Forgot to mention about Joltik and Galvantula, they're very nice. Joltik is cute <3

Well, abilities that induce the foe or moves that induce yourself to sleep don't count, though. I'd call bad luck also.

I was disappointed that Talonflame couldn't learn whirlwind. It would have been a bit unfair though when combined with Gale Wings.

Artee
August 23rd, 2014, 09:08 AM
Haha I totally agree. Though it'd be too OP, like Garchomp learning Dragon Dance

Rafflesiac
August 23rd, 2014, 09:21 AM
Whirlwind Talonflame would be -4 or -5 instead of -5 or -6, though.

Meh

What?

Rafflesiac
August 23rd, 2014, 09:58 AM
Gale Wings only boosts the priority of moves by one level.

So for moves like Whirlwind, which have a naturally low priority, it wouldn't make much of a difference.

Heart of the Star
August 23rd, 2014, 10:31 AM
According to bulbapedia whirlwind is only -1 so it would be normal priority.
no wait, ignore this I misread it totally. It was a complete failure on my part, it is indeed -6.

Rafflesiac
August 23rd, 2014, 10:33 AM

Nooo...it's priority -6.

It was priority -1 in Gen 2.

Try Forretress and see how your luck goes.

If you're lucky they'll only ask for a Kingdra.

My 3DS is going wonky right now. Not sure when I'll have time to get it checked out or if I'll have time to breed after fixing it. Might end up forfeiting.

Well.. Let me know if you'll be able to participate as soon as you find it out, therefore I may try to find someone to substitute.

Having some some testing and research I'm slightly peeved that it's only a 4 vs 4 tournament. 4 pokemon just isn't enough to make a proper strategy work.

Actually it adds even more strategy since you will need to predict yours opponent picks before the fight, and 4 is pretty enough.

Now to get some practice in and sacrifice some livestock to the RNG.

Artee

Aw Lyco u.u Meh is probably going to drop out too 'cause he's too busy.. I'll probably give people more time in order to try to call other people to participate because of the number of players.

Megas
September 24th, 2014, 02:49 PM
I potentially can, but I have no team, so I'd probably just get punked super early

Artee
September 24th, 2014, 03:16 PM
I can give sometime for you to build your team, I will postpone the beginning date a little..
A friend has entered and will take the Gray color instead of Lyco, since he gave up. You would be able to choose between Pink or Black.

KAIZA
September 25th, 2014, 01:24 PM
A bit curious about the start date: will it be postponed due to recent events, or does it still stand? Wondering now, since I'm flash-building my team as quickly as possible to make up for exam time.

Artee
September 25th, 2014, 01:44 PM
I'll postpone it for two more weeks, therefore, it should begin on Oct 10th. I've got a new participant and he's rushing with his team, so I guess in two weeks he'll have it ready

Mattias
September 25th, 2014, 03:28 PM
Sounds good. Gives me time to raise up another bencher.

2-3 days after

However, if most of the participants still don't have teams or time to participate, I can postpone it more, after the test period, because it seems most of people's tests happen at the same time

KAIZA
October 1st, 2014, 03:41 PM
Well, Red Team is almost complete...although I goofed up on one of my Pokemon's ability and now will have to look around and trade for one with the right one. Plus, I might need to improvise with a few of the movesets, because every single moveset recommendation I find involves moves I can't get in Gen VI (f&[email protected] Move Tutors). Unless I can find and trade with someone who has them. orz

Lancelot
October 1st, 2014, 09:20 PM
Is it gen V? I might help you with that ( I can capture a random poke, teach the tutor moves and transfer it through pokebank, but I can't do anything about the IVs because I don't have a card to use pokesav and you can't pass Move ataks through breed)
You could try a trading group on facebook or something, that's what I am trying to do at least since I am lacking the time to breed in Gen V (which is a pain).

Mattias
October 1st, 2014, 09:59 PM
So, I think Ive got most of my group hammered out. Just got to choose some 4th moves, and trade them over to my main (read: unfinished) game. And maybe think of a sixth Blue to make up in the next 10 days...

Alright Ferio lets get this on! (From tomorrow) I'll keep my DS online pretty much all the time so I don't really have a problem with finding a spare hour or so for the match.

we just need to make sure that we've added each other and that we're on at the same time.

KAIZA
October 9th, 2014, 12:31 PM
Well, I see I'm up against people I have probably low chances, or in one case no chance at all, of winning. Oh wells.

Already managed to fix up a breeding goof-up in one of my Pokemon, so I guess Red Team is now complete! I'll try to work out what items to give my Pokemon as well as see if I can create any last minute addition just in case.

Yeah, I think we got paired off last time too. Only thing is you'll have to be the one to save the battle video, I don't have a VS recorder in my main game right now.

I'll be available most of the day to battle so just toss me a PM when you want to start.

Good match, KAIZA; you pressured me near the end there.

My fears of a certain speed demon were unfounded, it seems.

You may have won if you had. It was a good battle.

I might as well just give up with these tournaments...I always end up losing the same way. (Lancelot kicks me out of the original bracket, then Raffles kicks me out of the loser's bracket). I'm just not cut for competitive.

Kaiza, stahp. You're good, you just get too nervous while battling and this may be the reason. I know that feel, it happens to me often.

You did better than me. I won a grand total of zero matches :D

Nah, it's OK. I tend to screw up often due to anxiety in battle; though this time I blame the game timing out on me. :)

The same thing happened to me. Only I didn't win a single match.

If it makes you feel any better, you likely would've stomped me if we got to battle. My planned team was supposed to Mega Kangashkan, Choice Scarf Alakazam, Dragonite, and Slaking. Never got a Kangashkan(wouldn't spawn, no one was willing to have a reasonable trade) and anything from the Slaking line, and my Abra breeding never produced anything good.

I have no idea how my strategy would've worked out but I'm sure it had a high chance of failing.

You should have asked. I've got one in my box, I could breed you out one in a like an hour, as long as you didn't care about iv's.

KAIZA
October 22nd, 2014, 09:21 PM
Same here. In fact, I started breeding some Kangashkans for the Battle Maison today; already got one with the IVs I wanted, and I think I have a spare one with 5 IVs (missing Speed).

Speaking of, anybody have a female Gligar with its Hidden Ability to spare?

Meh

Wouldn't have really cared for ivs, would have just gotten one and kept breeding.

Meh, what's done is done. Artee, are we having another one for OR/AS? I'll try to actually participate if we do.

I think I have one, so you can I can give you later.

Breeding has been slow and painful for me as I lack a Ditto with more than 2 IV's I don't think a single mon in my team had more than 2 IV's. I know my Gengar had 0. My best mon is a 5 IV Tyranitar I got off a mystery trade as a Larvitar.

My best mons are my dozen or so 5IV Lucarios and a few 4IV Gabites(never got around to leveling them up to Garchomps). I had bred them months ago.

Well, I already managed to catch one myself and started breeding it. ^^;
Thanks though. :neco_arc:

Also, remind me to return the Defog Scizor to you.

Ok, no prob. We can do that Saturday

We're going to set this today Raff, our schedule didn''t help (He works at night and I work and study during the whole day).

Rafflesiac

Ferio lost?

I suppose that's the best possible outcome; there's no way my team can beat his twice. Then again, even once will be a pain...

Ferio wasn't up for battling, so I guess I'm facing Lancelot.

Two byes? Man, I feel awkward.

Artee
October 30th, 2014, 06:52 PM
Oh, sighs..

Very well, good luck, both of you.

Lancelot

*Stares at Raff awkwardly*
Swell... If you are up to it, we may play when I arrive from work in 2 hours.

Rafflesiac
October 30th, 2014, 06:59 PM
I'm alright with that.

Lancelot
October 30th, 2014, 08:58 PM
Ok, I've just arrived, if you are able to play send me a msg. I will be on in 20 min.

Rafflesiac

Lost on the last match on my last Pokemon.

Well played, Lancelot. Well played.

IT'S WAS AWESOME! Thanks Raff, I've finally enjoyed a match in a long time! Too much Hype.

Rafflesiac

You're very welcome.

Jesus, that Outrage/Protect combo killed me.

Artee
October 30th, 2014, 10:28 PM
Okay, I'm gonna watch both battles and then I'll give you your prizes, guys. Will you stay online for the next hour?

Heart of the Star
October 30th, 2014, 10:30 PM
Well congratulations. Slightly disappointing that we had so many people drop out and all, but hey ho what can you do. Hey Artee now that it's all done will you post all the match video links?

Rafflesiac
October 30th, 2014, 10:30 PM
Alright then.

Artee

Indeed, it was a bad timing, even if most of the people wanted to participate but couldn't.


Hey Artee now that it's all done will you post all the match video links?
Yep~ I'm gonna update the main post with the battle codes as soon as I finish watching the last two battles from now

Lancelot
October 30th, 2014, 10:39 PM
Overall it was a great Tournament guys, I enjoyed quite a lot, mainly this last battle. Hopefully the next one will be in a good time for everyone to play together!! Hype for the next one!!! (Multi-battle plz :neco_arc:)
Thanks for the battles!
Also, don't dare to stop playing Kaiza :<

Rafflesiac
October 30th, 2014, 10:42 PM
I had a lot of fun as well.

Multi Battles...my God would that be a pain to coordinate. 150% worth, though; without a doubt. Monotype battles would be interesting too.

But I will only end up losing to you two again! :(
I don't know how to competitive! (What was Multi-Battle again? In pairs?)

Artee
October 30th, 2014, 10:50 PM
Multi Battle is quite nice, it's my favorite type of battle, but, I'd need more players to do it..


Also, congrats for all you guys, especially for Lancelot, Rafflesiac and Ferio for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.
Rafflesiac, please, if you can go online to receive your Xerneas.. I'm ready! And then I'll update the main post with all battle codes.

Thank you again for participating, I also had a lot of fun!

Multi Battles are pair doubles, two people to a side.

And all you need is practice, KAIZA! If you nearly had me this time, then you could beat me next tourney!

But don't think I'll make it easy on you.

KAIZA
October 30th, 2014, 10:56 PM
Hmm...that does sound interesting, and depending on who I team up with, I can increase my chances of survival...we'll see.

Oof, that was the battle that taught me to bring three attackers to my one defender instead of two and two.

Rafflesiac

Lancelot v. Mattias: That's the first time I've seen V-Create in action in X/Y.
Ferio v. Heart of the Star: Heart, you don't want to use entry hazards in Doubles because of the faster pace Doubles has in comparison to Singles.
KAIZA v. Lancelot: KAIZA, using Draco Meteor when you don't have a Pokemon in reserve (since Medicham was reserved for Scolipede boosts) to swap out for it is risky, especially that early in the battle.
KAIZA v. Heart of the Star: Sucker Punch eats Gengar for breakfast, especially from a powerhouse like Bisharp. You'll want to debilitate a Sucker Punching Pokemon with sleep or burns before attacking.

Well, that concludes my expert analysis.

I did tell you I messed up the strats and didn't know how to use my Pokemon correctly in my fight with Lancelot.

I would totally be up for a monotype multi battle tournament. That would be really cool.
