Ho-oh PASBL Awards Ceremony 2013 - Not Gonna Raichu a Love Song


Ladies and Gentleman, welcome one and all to the third annual PASBL Awards, this time brought to you by none other than Kush, King of the Britons!

Sunny: That's right bitches, it's the ASBOs!

Without any further ado from me, let's to the awards! The format for tonight is as follows: ranking, name(s), number of votes. Where third place was tied between single vote nominees, prizes were not awarded, largely because the economy can't handle that much SP flooding in to it (spoiler alert!).

Looks like that GCSE in Maths hasn't helped me work out percentages when it really matters! Damn you, school!


The ASBO for Best Battler 2013

Previously held by ASB greats like Jeri and Concept, this time it was once again a close two horse race between two men from the south of England. Filling the token American spot for us is Sneezey12, earning recognition from a number of surprising sources, and Concept lays a good claim to retaining his title by dint of not losing in about five years. However, this year our award goes straight to the Dark type Gym Leader of the ASB, DaveTheFishGuy, with a whopping 10 votes!

Best Battler:
1st Dave - 10
2nd Concept - 7
3rd Sneezey - 4

Honourable mentions: Mercutio, DaisyInari


Worst Battler

Always in the running to be deleted whenever we do the awards, this year we have a run away winner for worst battler. Happily. no-one that was in the running last year came close to taking this from our winner for 2013, Zekrom2525! Tips for those nominated: read more matches, read veekun.com from top to bottom!

1st Zekrom - 8
=2nd Swampurtz/Handy/Swampertforever - 2


Best Newbie

The first of several extremely close races, this year Best Newbie was spoilt for choice. With many of these guys TO regulars and commonplace refs, I think it's fair to say that the ASB is on the rise. We salute and thank all four of our podium finishers, but props must go to Lost™, who surged in to the lead at the last moment following intense speculation from this host.

Best Newbie:
1st Lost™ - 5
=2nd Schadenfreude/Swampertforever - 4
3rd - Ima_Penguin_95 - 3

Honourable mentions: kingothestone, EmeraldGoblin


Most Improved


Another close race here, once more with many candidates to choose from, this year saw a number of perennial comedy figures in the ASB community come good. Though a number of names were thrown in to the ring, this year saw a two horse race between Lost™ and Kindridra! Yes, it's a good night for the Dark type Gym Trainer - will he be standing here next year with a Gym in his clutches?

Most Improved:
1st Kin - 9
2nd Lost™ - 7
3rd Rangeet - 2

Honourable mentions: Firewater, Kairne, redpanda15


Best Referee

For me, it's most rewarding to see this award fought over so closely year after year. The ASB would literally grind to a halt without the refs who serve us and those on this list should feel very proud. The list is so long, in fact, that I've not even bothered copying it in. A good majority of the active refs are nominees tonight and that can only be good for us. But, rather unsurprisingly, there can be only one winner tonight...

... and it's DaveTheFishGuy, taking first place for the second year in a row!

Best Referee:
1st Dave - 4
=2nd Jeri/Mercutio - 3
3rd Rangeet - 2

Honourable mentions: too many to list


Best Reffing


Ok so fair play, for its first outing this category was slightly mishandled by me. Next year, expect to see the new and improved 'Best Battle' category appear, maybe with a separate battling and reffing prize, but we'll be lucky to have two Legend matches to fight over. They, and a Gym match, are perhaps predictably included in the standings, but kudos to kingothestone for a respectable 3rd place finishing despite reffing for smaller names. Sadly, there's only so long I can prolong taking all of the glory here, the winner of the Best Reffing 2013 being Mercutio! Despite his painstakingly crafted arena being wiped from existence in Round 1, your handsome host takes first prize for stewardship of Dave's triumph over Regice (and Jerichi) at the beginning of the year. Thanks, all!

Best Reffing:
1st Dave vs Regice (Mercutio) - 5
2nd Daisy vs Moltres (Dave) - 3
=3rd Mercutio vs Biggggg5 (Dave)/ger9119 vs Kyro12 (kingothestone)/Tyoyo vs Zekrom2525 (Mercutio) - 2

Honourable mentions: the Grand Melee (Kuno), Sneezey vs Dave (Mercutio and Apollo77)


Best Pokémon

Another category that I should probably rethink next year, maybe as Best Squad or something similar, Best Pokémon was one of the more difficult to tally up. First prize predictably went to DaveTheFishGuy and his Regice, but I should probably take a moment to thank you for nominating almost a dozen members of my squad. Kudos also to the person who nominated "DaveTheFishGuy" as best pokémon.

Best Pokémon:
1st Dave's Regice - 4
2nd Mercutio's Zapdos - 3
3rd Mercutio's Hydreigon - 2

Honourable mentions: redpanda15's Servine, Kairne's Charizard, Concept's Seaking, 9 other pokémon belonging to Mercutio


TO Hero


At this point the corruption-o-matic is probably giving off some interesting readings. Many people were nominated for this award, too many to meaningfully name, but top dogs this year are Mercutio and DaveTheFishGuy. Hanatori, last year's winner, is narrowly beaten to first place, while head honcho Kuno and the King of Alts are drawn in third.

It should be noted that BatDave would have taken second place alongside Hana, but since he hasn't yet put up a squad summary, he was ruled ineligible!

TO Hero:
=1st Mercutio/Dave - 4
2nd Hanatori - 3
=3rd Kuno/Sneezey - 2


TO Villain

With so many choices to go for, this one was wildly oversubscribed with a few people nominating entire groups of ASBers. Sufficed to say, you're all terrible human beings and we hope that your children are eaten by bears. But who, you ask, is worst among equals? deh74 and swampertforever, of course!

TO Villain:
=1st Deh74/Swampertforever - 3
=2nd Fallen Icarus/Mozz/EmeraldGoblin - 2


ASB Unsung Hero

Winding down with the last of the new awards here, this one is tricky. There were very diferent groupings of votes coming in, some surprising and some not. One or two people voted for existing LOs, so those were thrown straight out, but then came people who do many things for the league without the luxury of a mod sub forum. Some names in the hat were Kairne, often seen in S/I, and Shadowshocker, a veteran LO who often does his work behind the scenes. The inaugural winner by a mite, though, is Sneezey12, proving once again that if you cause enough LOs to legitimately consider banning you you're probably on the path to greatness!

ASB Unsung Hero: Sneezey12.


THE OPEN CATEGORY(S)

Oh so much vetoing. All of the vetoing.

Best Event: Grand Melee
Worst Event: Cool Contest
Greatest Innovation 2013: Fairy type
Change Least Likely to be Implemented: Mega Evolution
50 Shades of Most Irritating Award: the Shipping Community

Look At Me! Award 2013: EmeraldGoblin

Welshest Lover Award: Ima_Penguin95
The LolBide Award for Best Ultra Troll: Concept
Most Amusing Award: redpanda15
Flakiest Flake 2013: Handy
Best ASB Couple: Muyo X ABL
Worst ASB Couple: Shadowhocker X Tyranidos
Best ASB Couple (Subdivision - Bear): Jeri X Kairne
Most Trollable: Fallen Icarus
Best Gym Arena 2013: 'Golden Valley'
Duke Nukem Forever Award: ASB Gen VI
Categories Least Likely to Appear Next Year: Best Pokémon/Best Reffing



Wow! That was intense! Well done to all of our winners, commiserations to those pipped to prominence. I was happy to not have to filter out too many harsh and nasty awards this year and was delighted with the close ties for best newbie and best ref.

Now then, because we're lazy and terrible human beings, we're being unimaginative with our prizes. SP is allocated to 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed individuals as follows. Note that tied winners do not split the winnings, people who place multiple times in a single category collect only the largest prize that they won for that category and that categories marked with an X do not give SP to the winners.

I'm also capping the total amount of SP that any one individual can win at 10 SP because otherwise this looks so bad it's not even funny.

1st/2nd/3rd

Best Battler: 5/2/1
Worst Battler: X
Best Newbie: 5/2/1
Most Improved: 5/2/1
Best Pokémon: 3/2/1
Best Referee: 5/2/1
Best Reffing: 5/2/1
TO Hero: 5/2/1
TO Villain: X
ASB Unsung Hero: 10
Open Categories: X


Commence banter, congratulations and commiserations, accusations of vote rigging and weepy acceptance speeches.

Here's to another year!

Note: Most improved does not equal "Best Newbie battler" it actually means who improved the most. Henceforth...a good portion of that list makes no sense.

Fucking kids.

Oh-You.

Anyways thanks everyone o-o. I had a feeling I would win one category but I'm sorta shocked at some of these. Congrats to all of the winners! Hopefully you all deserved winning these awards (Note: This is not a good thing for some awards).

I also want my 7 SP please. It also seems everyone forgot I started the Comp Newbie Apocalypse :3

The only one that doesn't make sense is Red, honestly. Lost has improved greatly since having an 8 loss losing streak.

Yeah you just get whatever SP you're owed, I'm not gonna tally it up for you.

My personal haul of 14 (10) isn't bad, anyone top it?

I thought we established Lost was a terrible human being?

Also, y'all are being hypocritical by saying that us shippers are annoying when 3 of the open categories are couplings. 3=<

Glad Kin got most improved. thoroughly deserved there. Also curses to you Dave, remind me to remind ASB how much better I am than you by kicking your arse sometime this year. Good stuff on the legend matches getting best reffing too. Also I saw the full vote tallies in the LO forum beforehand, if I ever work out which one of you voted me for TO villain I shall eat the wombgivings of all your loved ones. Because villainous, you see.

Claiming my 2 SP for runner up for best battler.

So Somehow I'm a villain, and a second-best newbie, and one of a trio of terribad battlers.
I agree with the last one. I also eat this delicious 2SP.

I know that's a joke, but just in case anyone misses it; no-one has ever been TO banned on the basis of awards, and no-one will be.

Anywho, I was hoping to at least get like one vote for most improved, or even some TO Hero like I did last time, but there's always next year!

Happy that two of my open category awards made it in. Two out of... ten.

Some open awards were merged/renamed, so they might be there, some were obliterated from the records.
