    Hello everyone, breaktemp here again to host our forum's next Pokemon Tournament !

    As of today, I am accepting applicants for this December's tournament.

    ORAS (Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire) is scheduled to be released on these dates :

    Japan, North America, Australia, South Korea : November 21st

    Europe : November 28th

    Currently planning to start the tournament on Saturday December 6th.

    Also, leaning towards having the battles in the double-flat format...but i will take feed back from everyone before making a final decision.

    Anyhow, if you are interested in participating in this tournament...post your 3DS Friend Code and your time zone/region.

    I will continually update this post with more information as we get closer to the tournament start date.

    Since the game has not been released yet, i am keeping it open for debate.

    If "ORAS" has a new Flat-Battle for online...we will use those rules.

    However, every entrant has a say in this decision.

    * so once the game is release, we can do a vote on it *

    I like to add a note this should be ORAS only... since it is a ORAS tournament, if others use xy, then we cant use any new ORAS megas, etc.

    If no one else is willing to host another here...I suppose I could manage one next year ^_^"


    Asbel60

    It's all good, a lot of new games will be coming out (Wii-U Smash, Persona-Q, etc...) so no worries.

    I really have to wait an see how the "VS.Recorder" will be used...so I can look into uploading some of the matches to youtube/filetrip.

    Not to be a prude, but you've given people 15 days to get the game, design a team, and then train them. How is that fair?

    Well, keep in mind guys that Super Training can allow you to fully EV train a Pokemon in like 30 minutes or less, so that's not as much of a problem as it used to be, the rest is just grinding which, if they keep the EXP share like it is in XY, doesn't take nearly as long either.

    well that tournament start date is still open for debate.

    * either the 1st or 2nd Saturday in December *

    I am okay with either of those start dates.


    Plasmastar510

    this is a forum tournament...anyone who has successfully made an account here is eligible to enter.

    * do note it is not mandatory to enter *


    endoverend

    yes, we really have to see what is available in the game before we can iron out all of the rules.

    * also have to see how trading and pokemon bank will work out *

    you are now added and thanks again for joining up !!

    Finding that out myself.
    I'll be buying the game on the 15th, and it'll take time for me to get into competitive battling. I'll have to pass this one. ;(
