With our submission closing tomorrow, the Competitive Pokemon Tournament can soon begin!
The actual battles will not start until all the teams are in. After that is done battles will take place when both battlers for a round are online and ready to battle, as well as a "witness." The witness can be any of the competitors, or my good friend Shadowshrub. He does not have an account here on the forums, but he does on Pokemon Showdown, and he'll tell me the results of a match.

Before the battle takes place, both battlers must agree that they are battling for the tournament. After the battle, both the winner will post in this thread, and the loser will have to say that the posted result is true. If there are disagreements, then the witness will have to post what they saw, and one of the three will need to post a screen shot of the match as proof. If a witness sides with a battler, and there is no screen shot or other proof (such as a battle log) then that battler will be the winner.
Now I feel that I can trust everyone here, so this should not be an issue.
Anything excuses "But he won with a crit!" Or "I MISSED EVERY MOVE" will be ignored as they are part of the game, and a win with a crit will count as a win.

Remember, it is Double Elimination, so if you lose a match, you are still in the tournament.

From now on, any questions and discussion should be posted here.

I'm sorry, but we'll have t do battles unless PS, since everyone else is using that. I agree with you that PS is a little slower and buggier, but it's the people's choice.
If you are up against someone who is willing to use PO, and there is a witness for PO, too, then go right ahead. But PS will be out default simulator.

Thank Pool for being cool about the Giovanni avatar :lol:

Picking a team has been really difficult so far

Picking a team has been really difficult so far

It's alright, there's still a week until I'll start pressuring you all.

But seriously, I can help you build your team. Here's some general advice:

Start with a Pokemon that you like, then build your team around that core based on type coverage and stat coverage.
For example, Say you pick a Reuniclus, a psychic special attacker. What types are super effective against psychic? Ghost, Bug and Dark. So pick a Pokemon that can handle those types and a Pokemon made to do something other than special attacking, such as being a physical attacker, physical defense, revenge killer, etc.
If you want more help or more specific help pm me, or PM Shadowshrub (http://naruto.viz.com/forum/member.php?u=38198), as he's an expert in team building, and I forced him to help with this thing
and he's the one who helped me make my first teams.

With the sign ups closed, this thread will be the new HQ for the tournament.

As Devroux had to withdraw, and two new competitors joined, the brackets have changed, and are now the permanent brackets.

Hozuki
12-18-2012, 12:49 PM
I don't see any brackets o.o

I'm sorry guys, I slipped with the brackets and will fix them when I get home, since now I'm posting from my phone.

Alright, I got the brackets up, but you'll have to excuse the poor quality until I can get to my laptop.

So if I win, I have to face Pokeruto O_O

When is the team due date and the day we start the tournament?

pokeruto
12-21-2012, 04:48 PM
I set the team due date to tiday, but it seems that people still aren't quite ready. I'm going to get lots of PMs and VMs out now to keep things moving. Starting today, though if both you and your opponent have your teams in, you can do your battles. Just rememer to have a witness as well.

Hozuki
12-21-2012, 05:05 PM
I already made my team on Pokemon Online, don't feel like copying it onto Pokemon Showdown T_T

Maybe we should start battles on the 26th. It just seems like a good date.

It sounds like a very good team is coming together :ugeek:

You don't have to remake your team into Showdown.

Just open the team builder in PO, and push team on the top right.
http://i49.tinypic.com/16ivaeh.png
Then push export and copy all the text you get.
Next open the team builder in PS and hit "Import from PO."
http://i48.tinypic.com/2lm3ux0.png
Then just paste everything in.

If you want to battle on the 26th then arrange it with your partner. I like that date too, so have the battles start then.

Hozuki

Btw, the brackets cut off after Pool's and your fight, where's the second part? .-.

Alright, I'm good to go whenever my opponent is.

Shukketsu
12-23-2012, 02:42 AM
I am your opponent. Do you use Pokemon Online, or Showdown? My username on both is the same as it is here. Also, is anyone on-hand to play the part of a witness?

Oh, and my apologies if I've just missed it being posted / forgotten, but what clauses are we using for this tournament (if any)?

Rasen_Chidori
12-23-2012, 03:16 AM
Showdown, name is Razz

And normal OU clauses I believe.

Shukketsu
12-23-2012, 06:38 AM
According to Smogon, that includes the following clauses: Species, sleep, evasion, OHKO and moody. Fine by me.

I don't suppose there is anyone who can stand in and witness the match, is there?

pokeruto
12-23-2012, 08:25 AM
I'm here to be a witness now, but it seems Rasen left.

Shukketsu
12-23-2012, 09:11 AM
Indeed. That is unfortunate. I'll be checking on this thread every 15 minutes or so, hopefully he/she returns soon.

Vivi
12-23-2012, 09:14 AM
Is it possible/allowed to change teams?

pokeruto
12-23-2012, 09:19 AM
If you haven't done your first battle yet, you can change teams, but PM me the team first.

Maikeru D. Shinigami
12-23-2012, 02:01 PM

Sorry, time zone differences :lol: It was 2am and I fell asleep

Shukketsu
12-23-2012, 02:34 PM
Understandable, haha. I'm still online, so perhaps we can have our showdown now? Don't expect much, though. Still not entirely familiar with the interface of PS, so give me a few moments.

@Maik: You still on as a witness?

Edit: It seems the server is on the verge of restarting, so we shall have to wait a few minutes anyway.

Rasen_Chidori
12-23-2012, 02:36 PM
Yeah thats cool

Maikeru D. Shinigami
12-23-2012, 02:42 PM
I can watch. I was just watching Lee vs. Fukai. The server restarted while they were fighting.

Vivi
12-23-2012, 02:43 PM
Ready to have my match.

Or some fun matches.

Shukketsu
12-23-2012, 02:44 PM
@Maik: Understood. Would you mind posting here to confirm when they've finished their game? I'll be keeping a close eye on the thread.

Maikeru D. Shinigami
12-23-2012, 02:46 PM
Go ahead. They haven't restarted yet.

Maikeru D. Shinigami
12-23-2012, 02:47 PM
Never mind. They restarted.

Rasen_Chidori
12-23-2012, 02:50 PM
I might leave then return seveal times, don't worry about it. I'm just refreshing the page because Showdown has a habit of freezing up on me during battles.

Shukketsu
12-23-2012, 02:53 PM
Very well. Just waiting on Maikeru, who is currently observing the battle between Lee and Tusmi. Once he's confirmed to have finished with them, I'll send you a challenge and we can get this battle started.

Maikeru D. Shinigami
12-23-2012, 02:55 PM
Fukai Tsumi won.

Rasen and Shukketsu, you can start whenever you want.

Shukketsu
12-23-2012, 02:56 PM
Congrats, Tsumi.
Yeah, I'm heading to challenge him now. I apologize in advance if my connection is atrocious, I may need to kick some siblings of their laptops/computer.

Fukai Tsumi
12-23-2012, 03:14 PM
I kind of feel bad about the victory, I had a... significant type advantage. But thank you for the congratulations all the same, Shukketsu. You'd better not lose! I still need to kick your ass!

Maikeru D. Shinigami
12-23-2012, 03:15 PM
Shukketsu won the battle.

pokeruto
12-23-2012, 03:26 PM
Thanks Maik, for spectating those matches.
I should be back home and available soon, and I'll update the brackets then.

To the winners, congrats. To the others, you're not out yet. You'll be entered into the lower brackets.

EDIT: Updated.

InnerSakura

Shukketsu
12-24-2012, 05:41 AM
@InnerSakura: There are no set times for the battles to take place, it is up to the competitors to arrange the matches between themselves as is convenient for everyone involved.

I'm on-hand to spectate at the moment if anyone is planning on having their match soon.

Hozuki
12-24-2012, 09:23 AM
OKAY!

InnerSakura. I'm almost ready. I just need to transfer my team from PO to PS :D

Maikeru D. Shinigami
12-24-2012, 10:43 AM
Where is PoP and why am I not kicking his ass yet?

pokeruto
12-24-2012, 11:01 AM
I don't know what PoP is doing.....but I guess you can't kick an absent ass.
Since it's Christmas time and all that merry jolly stuff I won't disqualify him now.
I'll give a few more days, but he really should be done by now.

Maikeru D. Shinigami
12-24-2012, 11:05 AM
Yeah, I need a warm up for when I face a real opponent.

pokeruto

Maikeru D. Shinigami

But, I'm waiting until later to kick yours. >_>

pokeruto
12-24-2012, 11:28 AM
And it seems PoP has withdrawn (he PMd me).....so I guess you're going to the next round Maik.

And I'll remember that during our match. :lol:

I have never battled anyone one-on-one for anything like this.

Shukketsu
12-24-2012, 11:48 AM
It's good that I made sure to check the brackets before challenging you, because as it turns out Fukai is your next opponent, not me.

Disappointing, my next opponent is yet to be decided.

Maikeru D. Shinigami
12-24-2012, 11:52 AM

pokeruto
01-01-2013, 07:35 AM
You can get it on the iPad if you export your team from wherever you have it, paste in a PM to me, then I'll sent you a PM with the same team, open that PM on your iPad, and import into PS.

Hozuki
01-01-2013, 08:36 AM
What do you mean export? I don't have anywhere to export it from, there aren't any working laptops in my house -.-

pokeruto
01-03-2013, 07:18 PM
Hozuki, I made your team in PS, exported it, and sent the export text to you. There's no need for you to withdraw anymore ;) Unless you just really don't want to participate anymore....

Alright everyone, I'm sorry but because of the malware issue and the craziness of the holidays, I couldn't be on here and things slowed down a little for the tournament, but now that the holidays are over, (T_T) I'm going to get things moving again! Anyone who does not have their team in by Saturday night will be disqualified, and all battles must be done before Monday. I'll get PMs out to everyone because I have a feeling that some may have forgotten about this....

*Loud cough*

Have people lost interest in the tournament?

pokeruto
01-09-2013, 09:19 AM
Well I've been getting a few PMs and it seems that Hozuki has dropped out. I said I'd give people until Monday to battle, but since no one actually batted I wanted to give them a little more time.

As of now, we need to do these 2 matches:
ILIKEPIE V Ninyn
Red V Vivi

Red and I ILIKEPIE have both responded and will go to the next round. Vivi and Ninyn will not be disqualified from the tournament, but will simply be moved to the loser's bracket as if they lost their first match. They have both been active on the forum, and I sent them pms, but I got no response, so they will have to be pushed down.

With that, the second round of the tournament can officially begin!

Shukketsu
01-09-2013, 11:27 AM
Looks like ILIKEPIE will be my opponent. Excellent.

Okay, that's fine, but do you know when your internet will be back?

As for everyone else, please set up a time and day that you'll like battle with your opponent so that this round doesn't drag on, and so that I won't be forced to bring out the DQ hammer.

Leewannabe
01-12-2013, 01:57 PM
Have any of you seen Prince of Peace the last few weeks? He's my opponent, and havent answered my messages... He's usually very active, so it's strange..

pokeruto
01-12-2013, 02:01 PM
PrinceofPeace and Hozuki have both dropped out. So don't worry about him, you're most likely going to advance to the next round by default. There might still be a chance that he'll figure out a way to participate and work through problems, so this is a sort of second chance, but since he officially dropped out, the chances of that happening are slim.

The same goes for Hozuki.

Now Vivi and Ninyn did not drop out, but they never responded, so they will get a little bit more time to respond and battle before getting permanently out of the tournament.

Leewannabe
01-12-2013, 04:08 PM
I see. But he doesnt have any real life problems? I havent seen him post anything at all!

pokeruto
01-12-2013, 04:23 PM
Oh, no I think he's just having problems with the PS simulator.

Leewannabe
01-12-2013, 04:33 PM
I mean, have you seen him post anything at the forum lately?

ILIKEPIE
01-12-2013, 04:37 PM
pop posted in the pokemon roleplay thread eariler today

pokeruto
01-12-2013, 04:42 PM
Okay, I see to have created a misunderstanding. So I will clear things up now.

PoP was not disqualified because of lack of response.
He told me that Pokemon Showdown was not working for him, and that he would like to drop out, so his opponent won by default.
The reason he's still in the bracket is because between the time that he dropped out and now he may have found a fix.
It appears that he has not, so I will make on finalization, and then DQ him.

EDIT: Okay, now it can be official.

Since PrinceofPeace has dropped out of the tournament and was unable to join back for his second chance match, he will be disqualified, giving Leewannabe the win.

Very well. Send me a PM or post again here when you are done sleeping. There should be some others around later on anyway, so getting a spectator should be less of an issue.

pokeruto
01-18-2013, 04:48 PM
If it's too difficult for both of you to be on the same time to have your match, we can mix up the brackets and give each of you different matches. If you keep winning you'll have to face eachother eventually, but it would be better than being stuck here.

Pool would still keep his win, and Maik's most likely going to win by default against Fukai, so one would go against me and the other against InnerSakura.

What do you say, PIE and Shukketsu?

ObitoUchiha
01-18-2013, 10:59 PM
Hmm.
I somehow missed this. This seems interesting...

If in all the chaos, someone drops out and you are willing to let me play instead of letting them go with a bye, I will gladly join.

If not, then can someone just PM me the next tournament?

(I only put the first option because this is only on round 3 after about a month :lol:)

Yes, I'll let you take the place of someone who drops out, but it can't be any of the winners. It can only be someone in the loser's bracket.
It would be unfair to add you in this round from the start.
Although, I'll only allow you to join if you have a team ready and battle before we advance to the next round (which is tomorrow). If you need any help making a team then just PM me.

Seems like a logical suggestion. At the very least, it gives us more time to plan out possible, eventual matches.

Well it's been almost two weeks since the round started, and ILIKEPIE said that you two are never online at the same time. I think if you haven't been able to battle by now I should change up the matches.

Okay, I updated the bracket.
Maik has defeated yet another opponent without having to send out a single Pokemon, and Shukketsu is now against me, and Inner against PIE. The battles have to be done by tonight or the DQ hammer will be brought out again.

I'm surprised Fukai wasn't online for his match. At any rate, I am ready for my curbstomping our match now, if you are still online.

I'm ready, lessgo.

I'm Pikapwn on Showdown.

So as part of the losers bracket, can I still win the competition?

pokeruto
01-20-2013, 09:52 AM
Yes.

Unless the winner of the whole thing goes undefeated, everyone will end up in the losers bracket, so whoever makes it through the losers bracket will get to battle against the winner of the winner bracket. Here's what the whole thing looks like.

I expect to lose soon.

@Pokeruto: I don't know what time zone you're at, and I apologise, but I've waited quite long enough. It's time for me to call it a night.

Pokeruto! Appear before me so that we may have our battle!

Maikeru D. Shinigami
01-21-2013, 09:36 AM
Yeah, have your battle so I can know when Shukketsu will get to kick my ass.

Shukketsu
01-21-2013, 09:45 AM
Damn straight
Well, there is always a chance that pokeruto will win, of course. He has a good team, and I'm a n00b.

pokeruto

I have appeared!

Let's do this. Again, I'm Pikapwn on Showdown.

I was not victorious this day.

Alright everyone, I updated the brackets, and after dealing out a DQ we shall advance to the next round!

Whenever you're ready, Maik ;)

Maikeru D. Shinigami

I'm ready.

Is anyone able to battle me on wi-fi?
My stupid PC wont respond on pokemon showdown.
If someone could figure out a way to have an alternative battle with me, I would be happy.

if only this tournament was as simple as just battling on showdown

Hello everybody!

I apologize for the absence. I was sick with a mean stomach virus, and spent most of these past few days sleeping: about 18 hours a day. But now I feel fine and I'll keep things moving until the end! I've updated the brackets and I simply DQ'd anyone who seems to have lost interest. That only leaves ILIKEPIE and Pool to battle, so please pester them into doing their battle.

We're approaching the end here, so let's keep the battles up! If you're already paired up with an opponent, then go ahead and do your battle.

Pool

Ah, okay then.
I updated it. PIE, whenever your ready.

Shukketsu

*Cough*
Are battles actually still happening? Because it looks to me like this tournament is dead.

pokeruto
02-18-2013, 03:18 PM
Yep.
It appears that no one is interested anymore. Well things have been getting really busy for me, but I was hoping to do a final push and leave the forum until summer only after this tournament was over. But it appears that it has unfortunately ended prematurely.
Well, it was fun while it lasted.
And with that, I'll be off!

EDIT: Actually, I just can't let things end this pathetically. It seems that your still interested Shukketsu. So I'll go ahead and DQ everyone who doesn't post by Friday. After that we'll have one final battle and get ourselves a real winner!

Maikeru D. Shinigami
02-18-2013, 03:19 PM
So, I win?

pokeruto
02-18-2013, 03:21 PM
umm.....I just added an edit. Looks like you got yourself into one more round. >:}

Maikeru D. Shinigami

What edit? >_>

......Where have you been!?

Ah well, now we can finally get this show on the road! :D

(Well not now-now, as I've got lots of work to do, but as soon as possible.)

pokeruto
02-23-2013, 09:41 AM
Well Friday has come and gone, and based on the posts it looks like our next matches will be

Pokeruto V ILIKEPIE

And

Maikeru D. Shinigami V Shukketsu

Well get to it! If the battles aren't done by tomorrow I'll DQ like a mad man.

ILIKEPIE

Finding pokeruto is difficult I never know when he is on

pokeruto
02-23-2013, 02:09 PM
I just sent you a PM.

I should be on for the rest of the day.

Maikeru D. Shinigami
02-23-2013, 02:10 PM
Where is Shukketsu?

pokeruto
02-23-2013, 03:21 PM
I don't know, but you'll be the one moving on if he doesn't show up, since you're here.

pokeruto
02-25-2013, 04:14 AM
It seems Shukketsu never came, so now Maik will be facing ILIKEPIE in the finals of the losers' bracket, and the winner will go up against me in the final match.

Shukketsu
02-27-2013, 05:39 AM
Good luck with the remainder of the tournament, those who still remain. I apologise for my absense, and for failing to inform you all that I've been rather busy as of late.
