So you're fine with not attacking the entire game?

No, I'm fine with bringing pokemon who can't flinch.

Or who outspeed Kiss (Which isn't that hard).

Exactly. You're whining over something that's (a) strategic and (b) outmaneuverable. Garchomp may be strategic, but he's not outmaneuverable, and that's what makes him a bane. As much as I love Togekiss, LMFAO at putting the two in the same discussion.

Btw, Loki's a big glutton for Serene Grace, so don't expect to see him ban that.

I put them in the same discussion? I said about the luck item clause and then posted that I didn't really want Garchomp in the tourney, there's a reason it's banned and without switches, it'll become even more powerful.

And fine, if you guys want to bring Kiss counters then all be it, but if you have a slow wall and can't switch out and Kiss comes knocking, haxxing everything and making sure it takes down, say a Snorlax, after 30 turns, so be it.

Speed is a factor in Pokemon.
If you don't like it, just build a fast but frail team...

You have to be built to counter almost anything, and also I'm for the switching 6 vs 6...

LOL, you remember Haxsparce.

Anyway, Togekiss is easily counterable by Pokemon immune to Thunderwave and outspeeds or is immune to flinch. Gliscor, Electivire, Jolteon, Mamoswine, and to an extent, Dragonite, Lucario, and Crobat all are capable of stopping Togekiss with little fear of hax. In addition, Toxic can easily wreck Togekiss' day, despite what Talon says about the ailment.

Well welcome to the forum, and to the tourney.
I'm not organizing it, but I don't think Loki will have a problem with Kind's friend being in it.

Unless someone grievously offends me, I don't have a problem with letting them join.

*Sensors prick up*
Do I sense a misunderstanding?


Anyway, I can't find a comprehensive list of all the clauses and stuff we're following. Could someone post it?

Also, I was going to ask about if we were using a certain clause... but I seem to have forgotten what it was.

No one has been offended, he was joking around >.<

Anywho, when is the 'official' date set at the moment?

June 5/6th is the first round. We will do a round of combat each weekend after that until everyone is eliminated. Again, it is a DOUBLE ELIMINATION tournament. Everyone will submit their squad before each new round if they feel like making changes. You only need to name species and held items, I will assume all your stats/moves are legit. If someone feels something feels out of place (i.e. illegal moves, stats are too high), report it to me and I will investigate during the week. If something was illegal, the person will be disqualified.

Winner will get something. Maybe an Umbreon named UPNetwork holding mail saying "You're the UPN Champ!" I should work on raising that Umbreon :x

EDIT: Also, switching will be allowed. If you want a no switch tournament, that will be done another time.

No, you submit it to me. I will reveal my team first to make it fair, you guys tell me in private. You won't know your opponent's squad unless you're facing me. And I'll know your squad, but you no one else.

Can you read my previous post again for your answer. I don't like restating myself so often.

So, a couple things I'd like totally cleared up.

We submit our squads to Loki by PM, correct?

We are allowed to switch pokemon between each battle, but we must PM Loki the changes, right?


Just somewhat confused due to the wording. Also, I may be unable to battle at all on Saturday. I'll tell you if this changes, but could I have my Saturday matches moved to Sunday? It's very likely that this will change, but I want to warn you in advance, in case it doesn't.
