    So, Linkachu and I decided to hold a Winter Cup Tournament this season... even though it was actually meant to be a November Tourney, my laziness got it put off for TWO MONTHS. ^^;
    I should also give credit where due to King of Lucario for being a huge help in coming up with some rules and deciding on some not to be used.

    If you need to PM me for any reason, click HERE for a shortcut to do so.

    I suppose I'll get right to it then... In order to qualify for this tournament, pokemon must both be unevolved, but capable of evolving. They will be low level and un-EV'd so that the window for battlers is opened up a bit more to even people who can't/don't EV train.
    I have compiled a convenient list of all qualified pokemon for the tournament [unrestricted seperated from restricted] with all base stats lined out beside them. PM me if you're interested in it, as it can really help with some choices.

    The Following pokemon are completely banned from use for the Tourney. We decided on a blanket sweep of all pokemon that didn't evolve before Gen IV because they were all overpowered compared to the others. Other pokemon we banned have a reason listed beside them.

    Pokemon that didn't evolve before Gen IV
    • Aipom
    • Yanma
    • Gligar
    • Sneasel
    • Murkrow
    • Misdreavus
    • Lickitung
    • Tangela
    • Nosepass

    Banned for other reasons [with base stats to the right]
    • Ponyta Base Stats: 50 85 55 65 65 90
    • Scyther: Base Stats 70 110 80 55 80 105
    • Meditite: Ability that doubles its attack
    • Lileep: Stockpile, Recover, inability to phaze, and base stats: 66 41 77 61 87 23
    • Wynaut: Because it likes to play tag
    • Cranidos: Massive attack, considerably average defense, and decent speed: 67 125 40 30 30 58
    • Munchlax: Base stats 135 85 40 40 85 5
    • Phione: Shouldn't even need to be listed because it doesn't evolve 80 80 80 80 80 80

    There are TWO restricted lists for this tournament. You're allowed only one pokemon from each list.
    Most of the pokemon from the first list were restricted to inspire originality more than fear of an overpowered team... that said, the fossils are a notch above average in Baby Cup. The pokemon on the second list each have a reason beside them for being restricted.

    Restricted List A
    • Bulbasaur
    • Charmander
    • Squirtle
    • Eevee
    • Porygon
    • Omanyte
    • Kabuto
    • Dratini
    • Chikorita
    • Cyndiquil
    • Totodile
    • Larvitar
    • Treecko
    • Torchic
    • Mudkip
    • Anorith
    • Bagon
    • Turtwig
    • Chimchar
    • Piplup
    • Shieldon
    • Gible
    • Riolu

    Restricted List B [with base stats to the right]
    • Abra: Base Stats 25 20 15 105 55 90
    • Gastly: Base Stats 30 35 30 100 35 80
    • Onix: Base Stats 35 45 160 30 45 70
    • Rhyhorn: Base Stats 80 85 95 30 30 25
    • Magby: Base Stats and very large mixed movepool 45 75 37 70 55 83
    • Elekid: Base Stats and very large mixed movepool 45 63 37 65 55 95
    • Shroomish[if it has poison heal]: Above average defenses and rapid HP regeneration
    • Wailmer: Base Stats 130 70 35 70 35 60
    • Duskull: Pain Split + Base Stats 20 40 90 30 90 25
    • Drifloon: Stockpile, High Speed, High HP: 90 50 34 60 44 70
    • Bronzor Base stats, many resistances, and only one weakness given ability.
    • Mantyke: Base Stats: 90 50 34 60 44 70
    • Hippopotas: Base Stats and Ability 68 72 78 38 42 32
    Do note that this means Shroomish with Effect Spore are not restricted.

    That will leave all of the remaining pokemon unrestricted, and though you may not have two pokemon of the same species on your team, you may use as many pokemon from these lists as you wish.
    [size=12pt]*[/size]Just because I didn't restrict a pokemon, don't assume it's not restricted; I may have accidentally skipped over a pokemon when I was covering all of them. please check this list for it and let me know if you don't see it.

    [size=12pt]Tournament Rules and Regulations[/size]

    Banned Attacks
    Sonicboom, Dragon Rage, and Accupressure are banned from use in this tournament.

    Sleep Clause: You may not put two of your opponent's pokemon to sleep at the same time. If the sleeping Pokemon wakes up or is KO'd, you may use another sleep move on it or a different pokemon.
    If your opponent uses Rest and switches pokemon, you may still put one of their pokemon to sleep.
    If effect spore activates and puts a pokemon to sleep, you may not put another to sleep until they wake up.
    If effect spore activates and puts a second pokemon to sleep, you will not be disqualified.
    If a Swablu is put to sleep and switches out, it has been cured of its status and you can put another to sleep.
    Other pokemon with Natural cure [Staryu, Budew, Happiny] also have secondary abilities, so you may not put another pokemon to sleep until you've confirmed that they had Natural Cure and have been healed.

    Evasion Clause
    Double Team and Minimize are banned from use.
    Attacks such as Flash, Sand Attack and smokescreen are not banned from use.
    I'm mentioning it here too since it can raise evasion: Accupressure is banned.

    Self-KO Clause
    If your last pokemon out uses Selfdestruct or Explosion in order to make the battle a draw, you've lost. Double Edge and it's kind, Life Orb, and Sandstorm/Hail don't count here.

    OHKO Clause
    Horn Drill, Fissure, Sheer Cold and Guillotine are all banned from use.

    Species Clause
    You may not have two pokemon of the same species on your team at once... This means your six-pokemon team you will be battling with

    Item Clause
    No two pokemon may hold the same item. This is also for your six-pokemon team.
    Keep in mind items must be the same for all battles and cannot be swapped in between.

    Pokemon Requirements
    All pokemon competing must be hatched; not neccessarily by you, but hatched
    All pokemon are to be level 5 for battles, and battles will be Open-Level
    EV training or using vitamins on competing pokemon is NOT allowed. [see below]

    Good Sportsmanship
    If you lose your match, you may not reveal any information involving an opponent's team to other people until the tournament is over. Doing so will result in being n00b'd [possibly banned], and you will not be allowed to take part in any further competitions.

    Special Restrictions
    Trick Room may not exist anywhere in a six-pokemon team containing Trapinch
    Pokemon attacks that can only be learned Via Platinum move Tutors may not be used.
    If a pokemon was hatched in a Third Generation game, Emerald move tutors may still be used.
    TMs and HMs ARE Allowed. As are egg moves and level moves, if they can be bred on.

    [size=12pt]Tournament Information[/size]

    Let us know by posting here that you're interested in the tournament. Discussion of the tournament will go here, but try to stay on the topic of it. If you have any questions you would rather PM me, feel free to do so; My online status is set as hidden, but I'm on fairly frequently and will respond within a day.
    Pokemon registered for the tournament will be teams of up to eight pokemon. Yes, eight. You will be allowed to swap pokemon between battles. So long as a legal six-pokemon team can be built from it, you may have as many restricted pokemon among the eight you register as you like. Same goes for like held items; if two pokemon have leftovers, they can never be used at the same time.
    The deadline for Finalizing your team will be Midnight Saturday December 20th [US Central Timezone]. You will have to PM your team to me by this time. Team information should include the following information in the following format:
    Your pokemon are to be exactly Level five and battles will be held in Open-Level Wi-Fi matches. I will be calculating stats to check for EVs as well... souping up your pokemon on Vitamins will not be allowed, though I know a small amount of EVs will be present from leveling up to 5... the seven or eight pokemon it took to get to level 5 shouldn't show up in your stats at all.

    Because I'm being given such information, I won't be taking part in this tournament, sadly :(
    I think I'll be a bit too busy making sure the first tournament runs smoothly, so I'll know what to tweak if/when we do it again.

    Also, since I'm going on your word that the pokemon match the information you've given, for the final battle, I will be on Wi-Fi making sure neither person leaves and will immediately inspect the winner's team via trade screen before they can be allowed to disconnect.

    Other entrants will have one pokemon inspected nearly at random... you'll see how that works below.

    [size=11pt]How matches will work[/size]
    Each Tournament match will consist of 3 battles, with six-pokemon teams for each battle.
    Win two out of three battles to win the match.
    Matches will be Open Level and over Wi-Fi.
    Between battles, you may swap any members of your current team for the pokemon you chose not to use for the last battle.

    Disconnections: If you are found to have disconnected intentionally, you will be disqualified [of course, there is no way to prove this >>].
    If it was rather obvious you had lost the match, [i.e. you had one pokemon left and were facing four at full health] accept it as a loss and don't make your opponent fight the whole battle again. You will have another shot in your next battle, which is one of the reasons for doing two out of three wins.
    If a disconnection was early in the match, the battle is to restart exactly as it was unless BOTH players wish to change their leading pokemon/teams.
    If you show a pattern of disconnections that seems suspicious [i.e. the beginning of every match], you may be disqualified.

    Running: counts as surrendering the match to your opponent. If your opponent feels willing to grant that it was an accident, and/or the match had just started, it will restart exactly as it was.
    Keep in mind that you will have another battle in the match to make up for an accident.
    If it's fairly clear that you're losing the battle.. running rather than revealing your last pokemon might give you that element of surprise next battle.

    Tournament Battles will be scheduled to begin on Saturday December 27th as time zones allow, and will hopefully be done within the following two weeks. The week between the deadline and the start is being used to make sure all teams are straight and fit the bill.

    Each match of the tournament you win, you will be allowed to keep one pokemon from your opponent's team. This pokemon MAY be used for the remainder of the tournament as a member of your main team [to add some strategy into the choice].
    You won't be given any information on the pokemon other than what you saw of its use in battle.. that and what your opponent is willing to tell you
    With the above in mind, do know that any one member of your team is up for grabs if you lose. Don't put too much effort into breeding, Just join, have fun, and maybe score something for your pokedex too XD
    The pokemon's held item is NOT up for grabs, and the original owner may take the held item before trading. This way items are not at risk and people aren't discouraged from using them
    After you have gained the pokemon you chose, you will be sent the entry information used for registration, to ensure it's the same pokemon. If it isn't the same pokemon, let us know. This is what I meant above when I said one nearly random pokemon will be checked. You don't know which your opponent will pick.
    Cloning a pokemon you lose in the tourney is forbidden
    This is why I've asked for the received and hatch date.
    If you have two seemingly identical pokemon, and you lose one in the tournament, the other will not be allowed for use in the future as a precaution against cloning.

    [size=11pt]Prizes for the winners:[/size]
    The top three ranking members of the tourney will get a Custom title and membergroup on the forum, which will give them a different set of pokeballs by their name as well as a chance to take part in the Beta of Alex's [Doctor Oak's] new website.
    Depending on the final number of entrants, a selection of top competitors will also get forum titles, but not the chance with the website beta.

    PM me and I'll send you an extremely detailed explaination of the prizes, even of what the items do if you'd like.

    There are also the following items in store for the winners to choose from:

    Azelf Timid Nature, Level 50, Untouched aside from various TMs

    Finally, these event pokemon are here for the taking
    Jirachi WISHMKR, haven't actually received it yet, but is explained in an update.

    Prizes will be choosen as follows: First place gets first choice, Second Place gets second choice, and the people tying in third and fourth will have a battle to decide who places where. Unless this tournament manages to grow to more than 24 people, I believe only the top four placers will get prizes [other than pokemon won each match], and only one pokemon/item per person. Leftover/unclaimed prizes will be returned to the donator or kept for future Tournaments.

    Prize donations are still greatly appreciated ;)
    I still need to list quite a few I haven't actually received yet.

    [size=11pt]Things to know[/size]

    If the total number of entrants is not properly divisible for a bracket [if for one round we have an odd number of players], Then for that round one person will be chosen randomly to move on to the next round without battling. This means they also won't be gaining any extra pokemon. Once a person has been chosen randomly to move on, they will be omitted from being randomly chosen again.
    On that note, unless someone has something enitirely against me allowing this. If the person chosen to be omitted doesn't want to be, and there is someone else who DOES want to be omitted. The person that wants to be omitted must get permission from his assigned opponent first, but may trade positions.

    Finally, if we get to a round with three people left, rather than one being omitted, they will all battle each other in rotation. If one beats the other two, they will be declared winner. If all three lose one match and win one match... we'll take it from there >>;;

    After registration is complete, and a Tournament Bracket is put up, teams will be made public.
    Only the Pokemon used in the teams, not their movesets/hold items/natures or anything else.
    Shroomish is the only exception to this, it's ability will be posted as that determines whether it is restricted or not.
    Also: Only your original eight will be made public, the pokemon you choose as prizes after battle will be left unknown by your competitors. Keep the mention of "Good Sportsmanship" in mind here.

    TMs and HMs ARE Allowed. As are egg moves and level moves, if they can be bred on.

    I've got a simple breeding guide put together on breeding moves onto your pokemon if anyone is having difficulty getting certain moves to transfer. Let me know and I'll PM it to you.

    Just glad I could help! ;D

    One minor query I have is about the EV training - if I were to, say, train a sweeper up to Lv 5 killing nothing but Starly in the starting zone, but without any Macho Brace/Pokerus/Power Anklet, would that be allowed? Technically, I'm still EV training, but not enough to make a huge difference.

    To answer that: I can't tell if you've EV'd or used vitamins at all... unless it registers your pokemon as having an IV in that stat over 31.
    If you do something intentional like that, and it ends up showing an IV of over 31 in speed, yes I will have a problem with it. Otherwise, I really have no way of knowing.

    If you do just like you mentioned, with no macho Brace or anything.. you shouldn't end up with more than 10 EVs in speed at the most, and that's nowhere near enough to show up at level 5. In other words, extra work for no reason.

    All that said, if a pokemon shows to have possible 31 in all stats [not over], especially if ALL of your pokemon read like that, you'll be placed under suspicion.

    Just to clarify, but are the Pokemon able to know eggs moves? And can they have HMs in their moveset? It only mentions move tutors, which means I assume egg/HM are ok, but it's better safe than sorry ^^
  5. Ruko

    Friend Code:
    Yes, sorry XD
    I'll add that in.

    TMs and Egg moves are allowed.
    Level moves are as well, but they require an extra step when breeding, and genderless pokemon are incapable of learning them... if Magnemite had access to its level moves, you'd see it restricted or banned, and Porygon -was- banned before I realized the genderlessness of it.

    I'll add that in real quick

    well.. so long as you aren't EV training with it to boost their stats, I don't see why not :/

    Also, news: Ponyta moved to restricted ^^;
    Sorry if this interferes with anyone, but it was brought to my attention, and it has rather incredibly high stats >>;
    I would actually like a quick vote on that: comparing it to the other pokemon restricted, should it be banned?

    Ponyta's stats are well above average, but its movepool has to be one of the worst in the game. For that reason, I think a ban is a bit much, but a restriction would be OK.
  15. Count me in too....though I havn't even begun working on a team. I will have to PM you a question regarding a possible team member though.
  16. sounds cool, I'll join! :)

    I'm going to throw in a prize to the mix.

    The winner will receive a Forum title and special rank. This special rank will give them different Pokeballs in place of normal ones and will also entitle them to have access - in the future - to a development forum that will see them participating in beta development of my next site project/s. Though that will not be available for a while after the tournament.

    Second and third prizes get different forum titles and ranks, but also allow them entry to the beta program.

    Depending on the number entrants, a selection of the top non-placing runners up will receive special forum titles and ranks - but without access to the beta program.

    If this is successful and regular official tournaments take place following it - the same prizes will be offered up.

    Note that it is still at my discretion whether you 'win' the chance to be in the beta program or not if you actually get to participate. Poor behaviour will see you losing out when the time finally comes.
  19. Question in case someone else asks it later: How about Riolu Learning Aura Sphere and other Pokemon through events like that. I'm guessing that they're okay.

    That's quite a prize there, Alex XD
    I'd like to see this becoming a regular event... once every other month/every third month would seem fitting.

    And in response to Fachion:
    So long as it's an event egg, has a hatch date, and you're okay with losing it to someone if you lose a match in the tournament. [if they know it's event, it's almost certain to be taken]

    Pokeman thy 1st added in, however, please read over all the rules including the forum rules.
    Speaking without punctuation of any sort is rather frowned upon here and makes your posts unpleasant to read.

    Also, News: We have our first [technically second now, I suppose] Prize donations :)
    Vinyacoire has offered to donate his Lucky Egg and Black Sludge

    I suppose as far as donated items and pokemon go [assuming we get more], we'll let people choose as ordered: First place gets first choice, Second Place gets second choice, and the people tying in third and fourth will have a battle to decide who places where ;)

    I've realized that Bronzor is missing from the pokemon I've listed. It was originally on Restricted list A [for whatever reason >>] and I intended to move it where it belonged on List B...

    Well, yeah it's back now XD
    This is why I said not to assume a pokemon was legal if it wasn't on the restricted list, I may have accidentally omitted it.

    The question was raised "if you lose a pokemon in the tourney because you lost a match, do you lost the item too?"
    The answer: No, you don't get the item that is being held by the pokemon you chose as a prize, and your held items are not at risk.

    Still need votes on Ponyta
    on the grounds that it's movepool isn't very good, I have this to argue:
    Ponyta @ Heat Rock
    -Flare Blitz
    -Double Edge/Hypnosis
    -Sunny Day

    Base 90 speed makes it one of the fastest pokemon in baby cup.. with it's average defenses, it can more than take a hit that isn't STAB'd Waterfall or Earthquake and set up Sunny Day.
    Flare Blitz can take out half of someone's team before Ponyta runs out of HP
    Solarbeam hits any rock/water type that can wall the fire without charge
    Double Edge can cover Dragon and Fire types, or hypnosis with that base speed and a bit of luck.
    Stalling for the sunlight to wear off is hardly an option with heat rock.

    So, may I request another vote now?

    I'll go with banning it because its stats are really good and really balanced. Plus that moveset could potentially destroy teams. I'd only say restricted if some of the more powerful moves were banned, but even that's pushing it with its stats.

    I just say ban it. Banning specific moves on it could work but I think most people would only consider ponyta for the moves that got banned, so might as well ban the critter anyway. Plus those are rather decent stats.

    I agree with Carmen and Sem, since a good Hidden Power type on the fourth slot could easily make Ponyta quite broken. Plus, those are pretty uber-like stats, compared to most of the other base forms.

  28. Unsure about this, but I might try and get the Level 1 Riolu with Aura Sphere or Manaphy Egg from Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. I'll have to get back to you about that.

    Well thank ye ^^
    I'm sure those would make wonderful prizes for the winners.

    I've got a simple breeding guide put together on breeding moves onto your pokemon if anyone is having difficulty getting certain moves to transfer. Let me know and I'll PM it to you.

    Dug around a bit and decided to make a couple of donations of my own.. I'm not a legendary user, so I've got a Raikou and Azelf to offer, both with good natures.

    Just to say I've donated Adamant Cacnea, Adamant Eevee with Wish, Adamant Tangela with Leech Seed, and Modest Misdreavus, and a UT Dialga.

    Deal me in Ruko.

    As for prizes, I recently won a Master Ball in the lottery. I also have a Lucky Egg, King's Rock and Up-Grade. If any of those are of interest to anybody then I'd be willing to donate them.

    And thank ye for the prize donations ^^

    I do believe we have a decent sized selection now.
  35. I just subscribed to this site,(or joined or whatever) and I really want to enter the Baby Cup. I am really excited, and I will do the join thingy after I come home from school. Also, I want to see if I can do anything to help with the prizes. I can offer any Pokemon in the world, except for the new Giritina, the new Shaymin, or Rotom. I can give regular forms, though. Any Pokemon in the WORLD. (besides them). I really can't wait, because I will actually face a challenge instead of squashing everything.

    You're free to join the tourney, and... I don't mean any offense, but making an offer and wording it like that makes you sound like a kid hiding his AR.

    Buuuut, if you have a legal Arceus, we'll be happy to accept that ^^

    Derr, would there be any interest in a female Feebas? Anything useful nature or egg move-wise would be free game (you know me), and I could even breed for IVs if I got lucky within the first 50 hatched or so XD

    I guess IV breeding for any Pokemon is a possibility, I'd just need some suggestions for interesting/good/wanted ones.
