My Pokken Tourney idea was very successful, so let's try this!
Hi, I'm eXcess. Today, I'd like to introduce you to a new PokémonDB tournament idea:
Pokemon + Smash Tournament
As you may know, Super Smash Bros. is an action game about smashing beloved game characters off the screen. Many Pokémon have appeared in this series, whether as fighters or from PokéBalls. I'm sure you are all eager to find out who will be joining this tournament. So I made a list to showcase some Pokémon appearing in the tournament. Please take a look!
Fighters: Charizard, Greninja, Ivysaur, Jigglypuff, Lucario, Mewtwo, Pichu, Pikachu, Squirtle, Ice Climbers
PokéBalls: Abra, Arceus, Articuno, Beedrill, Bellossom, Bewear, Blastoise, Bonsly, Celebi, Chansey, Charizard, Chespin, Chikorita, Clefairy, Cyndaquil, Darkrai, Dedenne, Dialga, Deoxys, Ditto, Eevee, Electrode, Entei, Alolan Exeggutor, Fennekin, Gardevoir, Genesect, Giratina, Gogoat, Goldeen, Groudon, Gulpin, Hitmonlee, Ho-oh, Inkay, Jirachi, Keldeo, Koffing, Kyogre, Kyurem, Latias, Latios, Lugia, Lunala, Manaphy, Marill, Marshadow, Melloetta, Meowth, Metagross, Mew, Mimikyu, Moltres, Munchlax, Onix, Oshawatt, Palkia, Piplup, Porygon2, Pyukumuku, Raikou, Scizor, Snivy, Snorlax, Solgaleo, Spewpa, Starmie, Staryu, Suicune, Swirlix, Togepi, Torchic, Unown, Venusaur, Victini, Vulpix, Alolan Vulpix, Weavile, Weezing, Wobbuffet, Xearneas, Zapdos, Zoroark
Note: Pokémon that appear in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate may participate
Note: Evolutions may participate
That's right! Every Pokémon in Super Smash Bros. history is joining the battle. Indeed, absolutely every Super Smash Bros. Pokémon ever is in this tournament, whether they are fighters or Pokémon that appear in PokéBalls. I believe this is what DB users want, so I made the impossible possible. Anyway you slice it, this has the most Smash for your signup post. Simply put, this is the biggest tournament in DB history. Once again, DB users will collide.
Jokes aside...(for now)
To make this feel like an actual Super Smash Bros. tournament, this tournament will be double-elimination. Basically, Round 1 winners proceed to the winners bracket, and losers will proceed to the losers bracket. That way, if you slip up or have an unlucky game, you won't be knocked out of the tournament completely. For more information, go here. That being said, a participant total of 8, 16, or 32 is preferred.
As of now, this tournament will use the Uber format. However, if other users prefer OU, I can alter the eligible Pokemon list accordingly. Nonetheless, Smogon bans and clauses will apply.
Note: You do not have to have a fighter on your team. Teams made up of all PokéBall Pokémon are acceptable.
Here is a summary of the rules for your viewing pleasure:
- You can only use Pokemon that have appeared in a Super Smash Bros. game (trophies don't count)
- If an eligible Pokemon is an NFE, that Pokémon's evolution(s) is allowed
- Double-elimination bracket tournament
- 8, 16, or 32 participants
- Will take place in the Uber format
- Red Orb is banned (debatable)
- Blue Orb is banned (debatable)
- Normal Smogon bans and clauses apply
Before I go...
I hope you are excited as I am. I will continue working hard updating this post until the tournament starts. I really appreciate your upvotes. I made including every single Super Smash Bros. Pokémon ever my number one goal, so I was kind of hoping you weren't excepting too many eligible Pokemon. However, due to the upcoming release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, new Pokemon will join the battle!
