Remember that guy? That one guy you knew? He was your age when pokemon Red/Blue came out? When you talk to him about mega evolutions or super training or all that, he'd practically scream "Anything Past Gen 1 isn't real Pokemon!!" ? Well, you can now be just like him with...

The Genwunner Tourney

Rules as are follows:

  • You can only use the original 151 pokemon.

  • Only use moves introduced in Red/Blue

  • Mega stones banned

Any other rules worth adding can be added in this space below

I will not be participating, btw, due to my lack of knowledge on competitive battles. Maybe I'll be emcee or something.

Now, I must go. Bye.

You didnt say "smell ya later!", you ruined it! ;~;
Ban Mega stones and gen 2 onward moves
Try to make it more presentable next time, so we can actually read it.
Sorry. I'm a little new at this.

Due to the release of ORAS soon and showdown coding the megas in, Im going to give an idea.

  • On every team you have to have two gen 3 pokemon.
  • Your mega has to be one of the ones introduced in ORAS.
  • Standard OU clauses and banlist.
  • Although the clauses ay change in ORAS we will leave it how it is as we can not tell the future.

Just a little idea I hope people like the sound of it

"Standard OU clauses and banlist" but the banlist and clauses might change in ORAS. Like Mega Salamence probably making it to Ubers.
I'll leave it like that.Thanks anyway though.

Alpha and Omega Tourney
(To celebrate the release of Pokemon Alpha Ruby and Omega Sapphire.)

Rules:
• You can only use pokemon that can be obtained legally in Or/As, so basically a VGC.

• No ubers.

• OU tier.

• Your team must use a starter pokemon that can mega evolve, and they have to be holding their mega stones.

P.S. This tourney won't work until the games come out.

Hmmm...The Item Moveset Tourney!
The game is you pick something, Detectives, Criminals, Movies, Etc. and you have to make a Moveset based off that!
For example, if you have a Beauty Team, you could have
Gardevoir
Charm
Dazzling Gleam
Attract
Flash

After you're defeated, you tell the other person what you got your team from. He/She can either choose to leave his/her team the same, or change it to your team.

Bans-

Items

OP Legendaries

OP Megas

Not all legendaries and Megas need to be banned. Just make it standard OU rules, that gets rid of anything that's overpowered. And unless it's part of the tourney's theme, I see no reason to ban items.
I love how "Flash" is a beauty move.
And- OH WHY YOU SEXIST LITTLE...
