Pokemon X and Y: Know Your Meme Tournament! (Because Not all of Us Have a Wii U)

Last posted Jun 30, 2014 at 09:04PM EDT. Added Jun 13, 2014 at 01:40PM EDT

So,

Seeing as to how many of us do not have a Wii U to participate in the MK8 tournament in another thread, I have taken it upon myself to start organizing a tournament of our own!
Now, the rules are, LV. 50 normal 6v6 single battles. If you want to go by Smogon rules, please specify before your match. Post your friend codes below and I will get to organizing brackets. These brackets will be closed at 4:45pm (Eastern Standard Time), where the battles will begin. This time will be extended to 8:30pm (EST) if not enough people enter and will not continue at all if there is not a suitable amount of people in the battles. Each battle must be recorded as a Battle Video and uploaded to the Internet via whatever method is in-game and the code must be posted here. If any of you have capture card or other tools, those are very much welcomed to be uploaded to YouTube and shared here.
Fun Stuff:
>Please post a youtube link below to a song, be it from a real album or from another video game, that can fit that battle. Sometimes Pokemon soundtracks cannot really capture the full experience of the battle and fit well. (THIS IS COMPLETELY OPTIONAL)
>Provide your thoughts on the battle afterwards!
When the last four players are left after at least sixteen people joined, there will be a tag-team Pokemon battle. Two players will come up with a name for their duo and thus duke it out with the opposing team. Winner gains the KYM Internet Cookie of Awesomeness and a level 100 Shiny Terrakion courtesy of me. Limited to one tournament per day. If only eight people join, then the final battle will be a one-on-one double battle.
Any questions, feel free to ask below. (Damn it is hard to organize a tourney…)

Here’s to hoping we don’t get that one person with a team full of hacked ubers.

I can’t guarantee I can make it due to work or other things.

You’re not going to get a lot of people if you have an 8-hour entry window for tournament, let alone less than 4. There are users who are asleep due to timezones. But who knows for sure?

I know I’m at work and don’t have my 3DS with me, so I can’t give you mine right now. But if you are still open by the time I can jump in, you can keep the legendary shiny. I don’t like most legendaries, I don’t fight with most ubers, and I don’t like most shiny designs.

Unless you’re really aiming to do this today, I’d give it until tomorrow.

Funny enough, I was playing X just now. Sadly though, I don’t really play it too often since. i’m not that into Pokemon and I don’t have a single level 50 Pokemon. For now, I’ll try to level my Fenny (Fennekin) up in an attempt to enter the tournament later, but for now, i can’t make it.

Don’t worry man, by endgame if you do only minimal grinding your team will likely be up in the 80’s when you fight the Elite Four. (At least, its how it went for me.)

I don’t care about Smogun or their rules. I play with the pokemon I have, because I like them.

Also, should there be restrictions to make sure a team isn’t too OP?

New Update Everybody!
1. You cannot have more than one legendary on your team.
2. Shinies are fully permitted
3. The brackets are currently underway, so you still have time to enter, just so everyone who already entered knows, you all have your opponents now as we speak.
Good luck on Monday everybody!

Couple of questions:

  • What if your opponent isn’t available?
  • Do you have to stick with singles, or is it allowed to do doubles/triples if you and your opponent are both ok with it? Especially asking this because of your finale rules.
  • Stick with one team or are you allowed to switch between matches?

>If the opponent is unavailable the match will be held off for an hour until said opponent become available. If the opponent does not show up until then, it is counted as a loss for the opponent, so everyone, look sharp when the battles begin.
>All types of battles are allowed if they are predetermined before the match starts by both you and your opponent.
>You may shake it up for all of your teams. I actually was hoping people could do this to give sort of an unpredictability to the matches.

Each team has a legendary, a Technician Scizor, Garchomp, and a Charizard Y.

I’ll just have Lanturn somewhere on my team.

(Emerson Grey) I’ll start tomorrow. Still raising my other pokemon.

Also, RandomMan and Lil’B, your match will proceed as normal, the winner’s next battle TOMORROW will be your second match. The matches will take place one in each bracket per day.

Your Hippowdon really was my main fear. I constantly believed you would’ve switched him in and made me waste a turn with Solar Beam.

Verbose, are you alright with waiting until tomorrow for your match? If anyone wants, I’ll extend the time once more.

I work the standard 9 to 5 in Atlanta.

That said, I’ll be home before 6, so I’ll be able to throw together a team and get online before the hour cutoff. I’m not taking this very seriously. I just like to fight with my favorite Pokemon.

Do any of you jobs?


Edit: I can wait until tomorrow evening if you’re concerned about my opponent. I’m in no rush.

BrownBear, that Milotic and Shaymin had me worried. But overall, you were one of my toughest matches.

Ok. Thanks, OP.

Creme (It took me forever to realize that this was Picard), I don’t get back from work until 5:30pm Eastern at the earliest and sometimes at 6pm. But I’ll be ready if you are.
