    Thanks, I dedicate this win to the Water Division :)

    As I mentioned a few days ago, I'd like to make this next tournament monocolor, using this as a reference - http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/List_of_Pokémon_by_color (Each participant selects a different color).

    I'll start by selecting blue.

    I might consider banning/limiting some colors actually... some are way too overpowered.

    Alternatively, if anyone has any suggestions/preferences for a tournament, please come forward and say something :)

    Green, cuz pro.

    EDIT: Nah nvm, I prefer random.
    I suggest the tourney holder to randomize the color for the participants using some kind of unknown method. Because I can see that Green, Blue & Brown color will completely dominate the game and could easily destroy weak colors such as pink, red, yellow, & etc. Imbalance match wont be fun, (EX: Green: politoed, tornadus, breloom, reuni, flygon, yanmega. gl with that lol)

    Or banning weather from play might work too.

    Or how about limiting each team to a total of 3 OU pokes.
  8. Conquer Phoenix

    Conquer Phoenix Falling Light

    You should have seen the hyper offensive blue team I created, seriously.

    It would have ended your pokémon career then and there ;)


    Anyway, I'll leave the decision to Nick. If we can't find a decent compromise, just play an OU tournament, standard rules and such.

    draco star 98 DESTROY EVERYONE

    i choose RED. may the almighty poke gods allow me to have RED. i can destroy the color blue or any other color.

    OU is boring as hell :/
    but its your choice man, even though I still prefer "clear skies" monocolor c:
  13. Conquer Phoenix

    Conquer Phoenix Falling Light

    Since everybody has already got a color randomizing it is pointless
  14. Imma Agito

    Imma Agito Outplay Man

    If it's not too late I'd like to join. I pick blue
  15. beetredknob

    beetredknob Troll of Tanas

    Lol no one liked my idea : (

    Seriously I think we could solve the problem of a color being op if we just limit each team to a certain number of OU pokes. I figure each color has to have like atleast 3. then we can have fun by choosing some non OU pokes and still do well for a change.

    Sorry agito I think revenge already has blue, but you can pick another color. If we're just choosing with no limitations I'm sticking with brown : P
  16. Imma Agito

    Imma Agito Outplay Man

    In that case then I'm going with purple

    This could be an exciting tournament, each color has its own argument for winning it (unlike the last tournament with uneven matchups). It'll also broaden our experience of using Pokémon we haven't really considered before, and learn to make the most of what we've got (sometimes we take our team members for granted).


    On a separate note, as the winner of the previous tournament (Gym Leader Monotype), I thought I'd share with you the team I used to win:

    Beet – Brown
    Anakbae – Green

    - Lvl. 100.
    - Double Elimination tournament.
    - Battles must be played using either Pokémon Online or Pokémon Showdown.
    - Use only Bulbapedia as a color reference: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/List_of_Pokémon_by_color
    - 3 OU Pokémon maximum, per team.
    - Shinies are allowed as long as the pokémon remains within your selected color category (e.g. shiny charizard is still considered red).
    - Standard Smogon Rules (e.g. sleep clause, evasion clause, species clause and ohko clause).
    - Strictly no ubers.
    - Weather is banned (I'm looking at you Anakbae ;D)

    and banning weather is all up to you but the smogon ban list comes into play all the time though so no tornadus t and stuff like that

    Why blue & brown are banned? o_O
    Limiting the number of OU pokes or banning the weather could easily solve the "overpowering" issue instead of restricting your own freedom of choice lol.

    Blue: Tentacruel, Gyarados, Vaporeon, Heracross, Kingdra, Swampert, Salamence, Metagross, Latios, Garchomp, Lucario, Toxicroak, Azelf, Hydreigon, Cobalion, Thundurus-t.

    Brown: Dugtrio, Alakazam, Dragonite, Infernape, Hippowdon, Mamoswine, Heatran, Conkeldurr, Landorus-t.

    Thanks anak. Ok, weather is now banned.

    Anyone else have ideas on the overpowering issue? Limit to 3 OU pokes maximum (applies to all colors or just these two)?
