Default 3DSF Official XY Tournament - Round 1

Round 1 officially begins January 20th and ends January 26




Format: Winner is decided by besting two out of three battles. The loser of each battle is allowed to change their team until they are eliminated from the tournament. All battles must be saved and sent to me via Personal or Visitor Message. Failure to do so will result in disqualification of both parties.

Rules

General Rules and Clauses
  • Sleep Clause: If a player has already put an opposing Pok?mon to sleep using a sleep inducing move and that Pok?mon is still sleeping due to that sleep inducing move, the player cannot put another opposing Pok?mon to sleep using a sleep inducing move.
  • Species Clause: A player cannot have two of the same species of Pok?mon on their team, based on the National Pokedex Number. For example, a player cannot have two Koffing on his or her team.
  • Evasion Clause: Players cannot use Double Team or Minimize in any of their Pok?mon's movesets.
  • OHKO Clause: Players cannot use Horn Drill, Guillotine, Sheer Cold, or Fissure in any of their Pok?mon's movesets.
  • Battle Time-Out: If a player exhausts the timer, he/she loses.
  • Moody Clause: A player may not use a Pok?mon with the ability Moody.
  • Any battles that are not finished by the given deadlines will be determined by a coin toss or will be given to the more active participant
  • If you miss out on sign-ups, you may apply to substitute. This opportunity will not be available after Round 1 of the tournament

I have an urgent question. Lets say that I am alloted 2 gigabytess of data a month, because reliable internet does not exist where I live until thursday (which is the case, separated parents) and am therefore forced to use mobile data/hotspot on my mobile. Will the act of downloading pokemon showdown, putting together a team, doing 2-3 battles, and sending them to you take up a majority of my data usage? I have tried googling an answer with no results, and I really need an answer by next monday, so that I have time to learn how to use showdown and put together a team. Help is very much appreciated.

I can just have you and your opponent do Wi-Fi battles instead over that week if that's more convenient for you. Of course, I'm not going to ban Pokebank Pokemon from Wi-Fi battles, so if your opponent is packing a Landorus-I on their game, be prepared for that.

Still if you can get reliable internet by Thursday, that should be more than enough time to install and build your teams.

I suggest you contact your opponent too, and find out when they're most available so that we don't have any complications.

Is the winner also allowed to change their team, or is that just a luxury granted to the loser in fairness?

You don't have to download Showdown. There's a browser-based version.

Yep, just the loser.

So if in the first battle, you lose against Hydro jin, you get to change your team. And if you win the next battle, Hydro jin gets to change his team, but you stick with the team you changed to.

Yes. You and Goom automatically advance to the next round. You can battle him if you want.

And to send battles, enter your VS. Recorder and tap the arrow button (pointing up). It should ask you which battle you want to upload, then provide a code for viewing.

@alf: Alright, thank you~

I'm quite confident about my team after battling a few times today with the chatbox regulars (4-2). Let's do dis.

Added after 18 Hours 14 minutes:

Progfox just pummeled me 2-0. xD We know the tournament wasn't supposed to start until Monday, but timezones and all, so we decided to do our matches today. First match, his [*removed not to spoil his strategies*] destroyed everything because I had no counters, and in the second match I made some poor decisions.

GG~ I'm eliminated.

Thanks Joba and Progfox for getting your matches done early. If other members can also get their battles done before schedule, we can move onto the next round too.

Joba VS Progfox

Thanks for finishing your battles early Nedcone and Hydro jin.

As a notice for those yet to start, if your opponent is not communicating with you, be sure to let me know! I am not going to allow extensions this first round and will either disqualify both participants or the least active participant.

I allowed for participants to battle on their preferred medium, though I'd prefer most be done on Showdown this round. Not a huge issue in my opinion.

In any case

Scizor VS Chao

You'll most likely just move to the next round if he doesn't reply

Round 1 is almost over.

Any incomplete matches are eligible to end in disqualifications. Please get them done ASAP. Thank you.
