    Since we've always done things by popular vote here it's up to you guys to decide what tournament we will have to round off 2014. If you do vote in the poll please post in this thread explaining your choice - especially if you choose "Other" for obvious reasons.

    My vote goes to Little Cup for no better reason than I think it'll be fun.

    Little Cup, and I shall go and join as long as we have the privelige to use Showdown , because I totally DON'T suck at EV training.

    I'm honestly hoping for either Little Cup or VGC-style doubles, since they're both new to me and I want to try them out, though I'm more interested in VGC than Little Cup (and thus that's where my vote went in the poll). If I have a game by the time winter rolls around I should be able to join tournament if it's a wifi one, and plus, I like breeding~

    I voted for Smash cause I'm a loser and have really been slacking in terms of Pokemon.

    I voted for Little Cup, but any of the three sound fun. :)
     
  7. I'd really enjoy a smash tournament, as it' something different from pokemon and is refreshing.

    Just of note: If your preferred choice doesn't win this poll, it doesn't mean it won't ever be used. Odds are we'll end up holding the other options as tournaments later on in 2015 if desired, this vote will simply decide what format will wrap the year up.

    If we do play Pokemon for this tournament, will we play using Showdown or in X and Y? Just curious.

    Yeah Burgundy, that's what I wondered. It is taking me a stupidly long time to get around to playing Pokemon Y.

    Depends on the format. VGC doubles will be on Wi-Fi, Little Cup will likely be on Showdown in this case.

    I tend to decide the format long before a tournament idea is ever made public, so for every tournament you'll be given ample notice for the format.

    Yay! So my vote stays Little Cup! Just gotta make a team now, in case it wins.

    So far Little Cup seems to be the most popular choice by a considerable margin.

    ...yes, I am ignoring the people who voted and didn't post. Fuck the lot of you.

    Unless a significant change occurs I think it's safe to say we'll be wrapping up 2014 with Little Cup on Pokemon Showdown.

    I would like to do Smash, just for the sake of using all the experience I've been building up since it came out by playing it and literally nothing else.

    I don't have Smash right now, but when I do I'd certainly like a tournament. For now, I'll go with Little Cup, purely because being able to do things via Showdown is awesome.

    Smash all the way D:<

    That said, I'll offer team advice and practice battles for LC, but I don't think I'll take part if that keeps the win. I probably shouldn't volunteer her without asking, but @Jeydis is pretty amazing at LC herself if anyone can pin her down for advice.

    Well this was a surprise tag, I haven't talked to anyone about LC in a loooong time. I would love to give what advice I can on one of my favourite formats. I would also be really glad if we can get an LC tournament this time around. We could most likely do it over wifi as well since LC teams are much easier to get ready for competitive battling.

    If we do it over wifi, I'd request all pokemon be Kalos-born for ease of access.

    I fail to see why this would be necessary honestly.

    I would like it to be Wi-Fi myself but if the majority wants Showdown they will get their way regardless of their reasons why.

    Yes Showdown is what I want. I may or may not just not be able to beat Diantha. . .

    As I don't own Smash, I went for one of the Pokemon options (VGC), though either would work for me!

    It looks like Little Cup has just barely edged out Smash in the voting as the tournament of choice for this Christmas. Considering how popular Smash was here however it will definitely get its moment at some point in 2015.

    Now the next big question. Little Cup Winter Tournament: Showdown or Wi-Fi?

    Since it's Little Cup, either would be fine. Though I would prefer Showdown.

    Awesome, looks like we'll be using Wi-Fi after all.









    ...









    Just kidding, it's Showdown. Expect an official topic for Little Cup Showdown sometime this week or next.
     
  35. I vote for Little Cup or Showdown either is cool with me but time is still going to be a huge factor in this.

    Well, voting for the type of tourney is somewhat over as far as I can tell. However, thanks for voting!

    Yeah, the tournament has been announced and sign-ups opened already for this. So I think it's best to lock this topic now :p
