We'll discuss the ideas and specifics in the LO forum but it's a little too early to start thinking about a new tourney right yet.

Maybe I'll give all of you guys something to fight over soon to distract you from this until it's time to get it all set up.

Also no Rentals.

The Pokebowl is on the final match. I'd say its a good time as any.

Are rental Pokemon a horrible idea?

No offense, but you're not the one running it. Even if it's at its end, one at a time is better.

They're not a horrible idea, it's just that we haven't had a successful tourney without rentals in near 5 years.

In fairness, it's not like you actually have anything to do now Jeri. The only thing that needs doing is the match finishing and you have nothing to do with that. If you've not worked out how the aftermath is going to play out by now, well, you're stupid. You could happily run another tournament :p

Well it's not going to happen today or even within the next week anyway, so don't get too worked up just yet.

Still... should be discussed at least. Mission accomplished!

How? Couldn't have been nothing but Pokebowls...

Last non-Pokébowl Tournament to get past round 2 we had was a minitourney. Before that, it was the Metal Yoshi Summer Tournament, which was in like 2005. Between the first Pokébowl and this one, there was TPOC, which floundered under Mozz's control and failed.

So yeah, it's been at least 5 years.

> Still... should be discussed at least. Mission accomplished!

I brought it up in the LO forums like two months ago. It's been discussed and we can talk about arranging this sometime soon.

So keep your pants on, we'll have something for you.

Okay I'm starting to think a little more seriously about this.

Before we do any of this I need a ref check. Who is active and think they will be able to reliably ref for the next month or two?

If you don't mind a B- ref who believes he's a C, sure.

I'm active and would be able to ref reliably. It'll give me incentive to finally send in my ref test, :P

I'm around all the damn time and would probably become unlazy to ref something as semi-important as this.

Winter break's coming up, reffing is technically something I should be doing for experience.

Sign me up. Only one match at a time, though. We all know what happens when I try to go above that.

Why can I not make a joke without everyone thinking I'm serious?

Also, I'm becoming not lazy again, so I can ref.

Well, hopefully with a little bit of support from Dave (and maybe Kairne?), we should have enough to at least get this off the ground.

I'll continue bouncing ideas around with the Brits and LOs and we'll see if we can't get this running before Christmas.

I'm getting back into reffing, so, yeah, I can help. Moreso in January.

Not sure how turning off type charts makes it faster, though, since every Pokemon used should be able to get neutral hits regardless.

Oh no it won't make it faster, but it'll make the match ups less likely to be horrible.

Huzzah Frillish won't be godawful useless!

...Still pretty bad though.

If this isn't with rentals it'll have to be 1 vs 1 given how many people actually only have one Water type.

Current plan is a mix between Rental and owned. I'll draw up rental lists for all TLs and people can incorporate them in their squads.
