  1. The Ultimate Poké-Type Tournament!

    Current Round: Hoenn Electric-Types
    Eliminated:


    Still Competing:

    ;309;;310;;311;;312;​

    In this game, we will set off to find SPPF's favorite Pokemon, in a bracket tournament style of epic proportions. We will do it by type, so first we will find the favorite Pokemon of each type. Unlike other games, there are no nominations or anything like that. We will include every single Pokemon in the tournament, including alternate forms (except for Unown, Spinda, and minor gender differences). It will take much longer that way, but that's the fun of the game. It will probably take several months to finish. I may include a non-bracket voting style every once in a while to switch things up and even out the numbers.

    The entire competition will have 3 phases: the Preliminaries, the Semifinals, and the Finals.

    For the preliminaries, we will go by generation and by type. There will be 82 rounds total (some much longer than others). 17 types x 5 generations = 85, minus 3 since gen 1 has no dark-types, and gen 2 has only one dragon- and ghost-type, so there does not need to be a competition.

    During the preliminaries, the following scenarios may occur:

    Pairs: I will post a pair of Pokemon, and you will vote on which Pokemon you want to move on to the next round. The first Pokemon to receive 10* votes total, or get 5* more votes than the other Pokemon in the pair, will move on, and the other will be eliminated.

    Regular Trios: I will post 3 Pokemon, and you will vote for your favorite. The first two Pokemon out of the three to make it to 5* votes will advance, and the third will be eliminated.

    Crazy Trios: I will post 3 Pokemon, and you will vote for your favorite. The first Pokemon to receive 10* votes will advance. The other two will be eliminated.

    Sudden Death: This will include all the Pokemon that have not yet been eliminated from the round. You will PM me your least favorite Pokemon in the round, and the one with the most votes will be eliminated. TALKING TO OTHER PEOPLE ABOUT THE VOTE BEFORE THE RESULTS ARE ANNOUNCED IS NOT ALLOWED!

    Abandon: All the Pokemon remaining in the round are free to select. You select the Pokemon you want to move on, and that Pokemon is safe. The last Pokemon remaining that is not selected is eliminated.

    Double Abandon: Same as Abandon, but you select two Pokemon instead of one.

    *Numbers may change depending on how many people participate.

    At the end of the Preliminaries, there will be one Pokemon per type per generation, leaving 85 total semifinalists. It is possible that one Pokemon will appear as a semifinalist more than once. However, a Pokemon won't ever be pit against itself unless it makes it to the finals both times, which is very unlikely.

    Then come the Semifinals. There will be 16 groups of 5 and one group of 4 (for dark types). Each group has one Pokemon of its type from each generation. Each group will undergo a survivor-style elimination until there is one favorite from each type. At the end, there will be 17 finalists: one from each type.

    After that are the Finals. The 17 remaining Pokemon will compete in one sudden death round, where people will PM me their least favorite, and at the end, the one with the most votes will be eliminated. Then, the 16 remaining contestants will be put in another bracket tournament. They will be narrowed down to 8, then 4, then 2, and then the winner will be decided.

    So let's get started with the preliminaries. Each of the 82 rounds will happen in a randomly decided order so there's variety. So let's get started with
    Round 1: Johto Water Types.

    We'll start by separating them into groups of 3, and you guys will vote on which Pokemon to eliminate from each group. The Pokemon with the most votes will be eliminated.
    So here is the first group:

  3. To a mod: Is there any way this can go into the regular games section? I mean, Survivor gets to be there and that's a little face-offy too. It's just that not very many people come to this section, and this game already takes a really long time as it is. If it makes a difference, I can add other aspects to it that make it more than just a face-off. Like every round there can be a prediction worth the same number of points as the number of Pokemon in the round. At the end, the person with the most points wins. If I included that, would it be possible to move it back to the Games section?

    EDIT: I just added the prediction rules to the OP. Now it's a competition between people as well, not just between Pokemon. :)

  4. Survivor is a face-off at heart, but several of its elements [prediction, mystery theme, member-suggested themes] merit it enough member-interactiveness to be a game. I have long debated the possibility of moving Survivor to the Face-Offs section, and the possibility isn't as unreachable as one would think, but right now I think it should stay in the Games section.

    Now, should you include prediction as your reason for moving this to the games section, then this would pretty much be a copy of Survivor (moreso that this very idea was featured as one of their big rounds), which would mean I would have to close this following the rules of "No two closely similar games must be active at one time." Yes, I myself am a bit frustrated of the lack of activity in this section, and I really miss the days when that wasn't the case, but following the rules this will have to stay here.

    And I'm eliminating Octillery.
     
  5. Alright, I'll get rid of the prediction part. I guess this'll take much longer than I thought. Oh well...

  9. Don't worry face, I'll try to talk to SC and see if we can get people from survivor to vote here to not let your work go to waste. SC and I have always wanted to do a set with every single Pokemon, but due to the length and the fact it would take meaning out of the rest of the game we've never done it. This thread can help.

  19. Wow, thanks for coming guys! I was worried nobody would come since it's in the face-off section, but I guess it worked out! Special thanks to ER and SC for advertising :)

    By the way, I need a few official tallyists to help me out. Anyone want to sign up?

    Tally:
    Mantine: 7
    Suicune: 5 (my vote, which I just realized I completely forgot)
    Octillery: 4

    Also, good idea Bekidding, make sure to subscribe!!! It's easy to forget a thread when it's in a pretty deserted section like this one.

    Oh, I forgot to mention, please be clear about what you are doing. There will be some "eliminate" rounds and some "choose one to go through" rounds. Some people might accidentally do the wrong thing because they're used to something else, but if you're clear, then we'll be able to correct you so that you don't vote the opposite way that you intended.
