    Hello everyone, breaktemp here, I will be your host for GBATemp's 2013 December Pokemon Tournament !

    Currently, I am accepting applicants for this months tournament.

    So, for now, you are able to enter by posting your 3DS Friend Code, Pokemon X/Y Trainer Name, your time zone/region, and if you have obtained the "Vs. Recorder" Item :

    Entry Format :


    In the below spoiler tags are this tournaments rules :

    Tournament Rules :


    Once the tournament is concluded, I will edit this post with all of the Vs.Recorder Codes ^_^"

    Vs.Recorder Codes :


    Entry Deadline : December 9th, 2013...more or less noon (12:00pm Central Standard Time - U.S.A. )


    I will be posting the list of all tournament entrants, in the spoiler tags below :

    Tournament Entrants :


    This next area is reserved for the "Group Stages"

    Results Deadline : December 13th, 2013...around noon (12:00pm Central Standard Time - U.S.A. )

    Group Stage : Groups of 4 Trainers Battle once against each trainer in their group.

    Group Stage 1 :

    Group Stage 2 :

    Group Stage 3 :

    Group Stage 4 :

    Group Stage 5 :


    The "Knockout Stage" will consist of 8 trainers.

    Knockout Stage : Best 2 out of 3 Matches, with the trainers who have the best win/loss records from the "Group Stage", where the winner moves on to the next round.



    Adding a quick update describing how this tournament will be run ^_^"

    On Monday (December 9th, 2013), once entries are closed, I will randomly select 4 entrants and set them as a group.

    I will keep doing so until all entrants have been grouped.

    Afterwards...if the final group has less than 4 members, i will increase some of the group's size to 5.

    I will then add these entrants into the new openings in these groups.

    Next, the members of each group will exchange 3DS-Friend Codes and setup a time to battle.

    You then battle every member in your group "once" and save the results to your battle recorder.

    Once you have completed this step, post your win/loss results of your group in this thread.

    That following Friday (December 13th, 2013) I will tally-up the entrant's records and select the trainers who will be moving on to the Knockout Stage.

    If all of the groups have submitted their results before the 13th...the Knockout Stage will start up earlier !!


    Here is a short youtube video I made briefly detailing this tournament :




    Registration is now closed !!

    Last tournament's champion reporting in... or something.

    You might want to specify if the use of banned legends (maison rules) is banned or not, considering that's not noted.

    FC: I'll see to it that the opponents I battle get this, I don't want to place it in public.
    Time Zone: GMT+1. a.k.a at time of posting, it's 7:45 PM. I can play pretty much anytime during weekends though, so that's not too big an issue.

    I don't know. Help.
    Is it time to destroy some more peasants already? This time no one will stand in my way. I hope this tournament gets a little bigger though, so maybe there should be some participant increasing measures made this time.

    Anyway,

    Just a quick question, exactly what skill level are these things usually? I don't do anything competitive so I'm trying to avoid embarrassing myself here.

    I'm not a competitive battler, but what the heck.

    I do not have the Vs. Recorder on my Japanese version of Pokemon X. I am working on breeding and playing my other copy to beat the game for the third time. Most likely before the Tournament starts, I will probably have the Vs. Recorder.
