    After recent discussions in the pokecharmsWFC chat, it's very obvious that after trying out Black and White people aren't as interested in holding a Gen IV league again as originally discussed. So, we're officially scrapping that idea altogether.


    Heed well: The next league, spanning July and August 2011, will a 4 vs 4 Doubles competition featuring the VGC11 rules.

    We're not yet taking sign-ups for the league, but we heavily encourage anyone who's interested to start thinking about their teams well in advance and to try to be active around both the Charms Organised Play forum (aka. this board) and within our WFC chatroom. Due to complications during the previous league (namely people quitting for poor reasons and screwing up the scoring), we will be a bit more selective this time 'round with who takes part. We'll explain more on that closer to the date, but safe to say if you prove to us that we can trust you not to ditch without a justified reason, you'll be allowed in.

    Now, to recap the VGC11 rules:

    In addition to these rules:
    • All battles will be contested under the Flat rules, meaning all of your Pokemon must be over level 50.
    • The Fair Game Clause is in effect: "If a player uses Explosion, Self Destruct, Perish Song or Destiny Bond to cause a draw, the user of the respective move loses".
    • Please review the League Format and Guidelines if you're unsure, or have forgotten, how the league actually works.

    And that's it. Stay tuned for further league information, most importantly regarding the sign-ups, over the next couple of months. :)

    This sounds fun. I've always enjoyed doubles, and seeing as I'll have more time on my hands this year, it might be fun to give this another shot. Of course, I need the game first... but that can't be helped. ^^;

    [me=Sir Red]weeps over not having been able to be there for this discussion to try and complain against Gen V only, but alas :T[/me]

    If that's what's going down I'll prepare for Haxorus, Conkledurr and Hydreigon to be everywhere. :x

    The one thing that I really like about this, though, is that for once the Battle Subway (formerly Frontier filled the role) will be able to be a proper training area for the league. :'D

    The irony here is that only one of those appears commonly in VGC11 play at the moment. Funny that.

    Hydreigon. Haxorus is extremely uncommon in VGC11 and Conkeldurr only tends to appear on Trick Room teams, and they've suffered a decline in popularity lately.

    The next Clinic article will be all about VGC11 actually, so if you're planning on competing in the league I'd highly suggest looking it over to get a better idea of what you'll need to be ready for.
