I, your old pokémon league tournament overseer, am setting up a new tournament in wake of the pokétubers draft style tournament.
It's a smaller tournament this time meant to last maybe a week or so but is open to repeats if interest is enough.
Rules are as followed:
Standard smogon tiers and bans apply.
Pokémon are individually drafted, once a Pokémon is drafted only that person can use it in the tournament.
Draft rounds will consist of 3 OU, 3 UU, 3 RU and 3 NU mons. In which each the order of picking will be randomised for the first pick.
After being randomised for the first pick it will follow this style: Let's say there are 8 people and you get first pick, then for the 2nd mon you get last (8th) pick and for the 3rd mon first pick again. So the order reverses after everyone has picked their 1st and 2nd mons.
Formes are considered seperate pokemon with the exception of Keldeo.
Picking a Mega does not require you to use it in it's mega forme. But you can only choose 1 mega per match.
See http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...1#post36966304 for explanation.
You cannot use another mega from the same base pokemon (This applies specificly to MegaZard)
You can only trade ONCE during the first round of the tournament and only with people on the other side of the bracket and only Pokémon from the same tier. (No Ferrothorns for Unowns.)
Why this is fun?
Everyone will have a unique team.
You know what the opponent can bring so you can try to counterteam but so will they so it's a guessing game.
Mixed tier tournament forcing you to think outside of the box.
The random picking makes getting your perfect mons near impossible making you think on your feet about what to pick.
REGISTRATION IS NOW OFFICIALLY CLOSED
