Updated.

 

And well, we have 13 members atm. I would like to be able to wait till we got 16, but we can work something out if that doesn't happen.

In that case what does everyone think?

What should the tier/rules be?

If I may propose a setup...

Tier: OU

Rules:

- The tournament would be divided into two parts.  The first part is a round-robin style tournament wherein a player is eliminated after three losses.  After it's been narrowed down to eight players in this manner, we can advance to a good old-fashioned single-elimination tournament with a bracket and everything.  Replays (or screenshots if Showdown chooses not to cooperate) must be provided for proof of the battle's outcome.

- No two Pokemon in a single team are permitted to hold the same item.

- In light of the holidays being a mere two days away (probably even less by the time we start this tournament), all teams are required to have at least one Ice-type Pokemon.

Sounds good, though I think we needn't complicate things. A simple round-robin would work plenty fine.

I'd also suggest we make a distinguish between friendly tourneys and ranked tourneys, ranked tourneys perhaps reflected via standings on the OP?

My favorite Pokémon are Gardevoir and Diancie (primarily the Mega), I played showdown competitively on a small forum a bit ago, so I know a thing or two about battling in OU, though I observe more than I fight.

We do seasons with round robins, track wins to determine standings.

Yus that would be very nice of you, Kyng.

Probably would have to do it by tier.

I'd like to throw this in here, if I may. Greninja now suspect tested, after the quickban of Mega Salamence in early ORAS. If this topic is also for discussion, feel free to do so, i'd say.

I could've seen this coming. Protean is such a powerful ability.

It's functionally almost identical with Genesect, actually. Playstyle, role. and problem-wise.

 

The only difference is that Greninja has less power than download-boosted Genesect and far less bulk with worse defensive typing, but Greninja's mixed sets are generally better, it can hit things on a wider spectrum, and Greninja's far faster than Genesect, bar Scarf gene.

 

Protean's basically a more consistent Download boost for all non-stab moves after all.

 

I really am out of touch of ORAS meta aside from the first few weeks of it though, so yeah. I don't think I can gauge Greninja's impact well enough.

It's mostly weak to Talonflame priority-wise. Else it is only hurt after it already attacked and changed its type, other than that it resists Bullet Punch, Sucker Punch, Aqua Jet and Ice Shard. Aerilate Quick Attack is the only other priority (Mega Pinsir) that comes to my mind, other than Talon, but yeah after it attacked it dies to most prios.

 

I would guess Greninja will be banned, it's a sweeper that can break its own walls, and its only true counter right now is Porygon2 which is, as Smogon.com already said, incredibly niche. It's banworthy in my opinion, because it is a huge problem to any playstyle, remains basically uncounterable and can even take advantage of its counters sometimes. (See: Spikes Greninja vs Chansey - You get 2 layers at least if you use it on the switch, if it stays in after it's instant 3 even - But Spikes ninja is more XY so idk if that's still a thing)

 

Edit: Forgot Mach Punch, but only Conk runs that, and Conk is pretty bad right meow.

I have a feeling that Greninja isn't going to do very well in Ubers, but it is doing too good in OU. Which is the problem. It can't hit quite hard enough to deal with threats in Ubers from what I can tell. So it's tricky.

But it certainly doesn't belong in OU anymore.

 

Also gonna be updating the OP at some point. Adding a spoiler for "Current tournaments" "Past tournaments" "Rankings" and anything else I think should go there.

I have the first Season's tournament set up. If possible I'd love it if we could have a Bookie to take in bets for the tournament, to add extra spice.

Oh nice, that's good. Um....a Bookie you say? I don't know how this would work exactly.
As in other people outside of here make bets? Could be interesting. What would the winner get in that case?
