Grand Melee II Sign Ups

Welcome to the Grand Melee II: Double Sided Melee
After the last Melee in winter, things are starting to defrost and warm up. And so is our passion for giant death matches. This time we have some new twists to a classic. Below are some of the major changes:


  • 20 People will now be able to compete.
  • The arena will now "flip" when 8 Pokemon remain. This will introduce a brand new arena to finish the fight. At that point trainers will be allowed to select a new Pokemon. Even if they do not switch, all Pokemon will be fully healed and reassigned new locations.
  • Totally awesome adjustments to weather moves and "room" attacks. They will now take more energy to use the more they get used by anyone. Room attacks will be no larger than one square.
  • Magic room can be entered/exited by using an attack to do so. You still cannot see inside/outside of it, and attacks cannot enter or exit.
  • No wild Pokemon.


Grand Melee Info:
Da Rules
You may use your own Pokemon, however no sigs/HP/badges/tokens will be allowed
It will be equilevel but not equi-evo.
Since I will be the only ref, 20 people max are allowed
A strict 24 hour DQ will be enforced, with more details below. Not sending attacks will have the Pokemon play passively and try to dodge. Missing 3 deadlines will have you disqualified.
It will be done in 4/6 style because fuck the haters.


Basic Info
Unlike past Grand Melees, there will be no trainers. Instead, you will see/hear whatever your Pokemon sees/hears via a super dooper indestructible headset. This will allow you to see/hear what it sees, as well as issue orders.
The casters of the event will be casting from the middle of the arena. Their casters booth is a large room floating in the air. They will provide reffing coverage based on what they can see down below, as well as a few hidden cameras around the arena. This is what everyone will see each round and will be referred to as the "general reffing". Like a normal GM, each trainer will also receive a personalized reffing (with much less detail if there is not much happening) to say what they see and hear, etc.
In addition to the regular reffing duo, Pimp Master Jay will be the "at the scene" correspondent. He will Teleport around to the action and say what he sees down below. Even if attacked, he will not attack any participants, but he will probably use barrier moves, and if pissed off, might taunt or do something mean.


Signing Up
Due to the nature of the fact I will be the only ref, there is a limit on participants. I will allow only 20 people to enter. Having one ref means I will be responsible for everything, and if there is a fuck up, I'd rather it be me drop the ball and take the blame then having a ref with half the Pokemon HP/energy vanish and try to pick up the pieces midway.
Selecting participants will not be first come first serve. Instead, it will be randomly decided using RNG. To ensure an even spread of trainers (rather than 1 level 6 with a legend vs 15 level 1s..), there will be a set number of trainers at each Trainer Level:

4 Seeded from last GM (Top 4 winners, Redpanda, Charm, Mozz, Rangeet)
5 Participants TL 5 or higher
5 Participants TL 3-4
3 Participants TL 1-2
2 Random from every group
1 Kuno's Pick

The RNGing will go in that order. This will all be done on stream to ensure I'm not biased (not that I would be, but it might be fun to watch). If 5 TL+ trainers do not enter, the empty spot will drop down and there will be 6 TL 3-4s who enter, etc. Signups will close Friday, and I will do the RNG stream Friday afternoon (EST). So when you sign up in this thread, please list your Trainer Level or I will ignore your post.


The Arena

Welcome to Fanfiction Island!



This large circular island is home to the lovely Fanfiction village, just north of the arena, inaccessible to our battlers. The lowest parts of the island are beach-like, and the higher points are generally more wooded.

A-1 - Teleporter Path - The path to the teleporter (not accessible to battlers) is the highest point of the island. This is also the northwest corner of the arena.

B-1/C-1 - Fanfiction Bridge - A large wooden bridge connecting the two islands. It is fairly sturdy and also fairly high up from the water.

A-2 - Classic Bridge - A large stone bridge connecting the two islands. It is just above water level. connecting the two beaches. However Pokemon can swim under it to travel across. It is exceptionally well made.

D-2/D-3 - Dragon Beach - This beautiful sandy beach is a popular attraction for tourists.

A-4 - Chef's Peak - The second highest spot on the island. It is also a massive forest.

Center - Casters Desk SUPERION CHAMBER - Where your lovely hosts cast the match from. It is floating 100 feet into the air, so Pokemon can freely walk (swim or fly) under it. It is now invisible. Awesome.

You may also choose your top 3 starting positions (the numbers on the map). There is no guarantee you will get any of them, as it will be randomized a bit. But those who picked a spot no one else wanted will go there, etc.


The Schedule
Friday the 4th - Deadline for Entries
Friday the 4th - RNGing for participants
Thursday the 10th - Pokemon must be PMed to me
Friday the 11th - Introductory reffing, locations given with surrounding detail, etc. All private reffings after this will be lacking in detail if there is nothing happening. Don't expect a huge essay about how you waited around to see if anyone walked by. This is a huge undertaking, cut me some slack.

Saturday the 12th and onwards - All attacks must be given to me by 5 PM EST. That will be the deadline every day. I will try my absolute best to have the reffing that night before I go to sleep. If something goes wrong and I get preoccupied, I will post and say there's a delay and ref ASAP. That is the only time there isn't a deadline the next day. Otherwise, every 5 PM will be the deadline, regardless of when at night the round was reffed. If you cannot do this, then please do not sign up.


Due to the nature of this massive undertaking, I will not be able to re-ref anything. I'm sorry if this is going to screw someone over, as mistakes do happen but.. barring hp/energy mistakes or huuuuge errors, changing how a round was reffed will take as long as doing an entire round. It's not just a matter of editing my general round reffing, but I'd have to look up who was involved and send changed PMs to people. It wont be easy so I want to avoid it. If small mistakes were made then I apologize.

Please take any questions to the Grand Melee Time Out thread. This thread will just be for posting that you want to join and your Trainer Level. That is it.


Have fun and good luck!
