Added, and still working on the rules.

And yes, it is understood there is no cheating allowed (as far as outside of the game is concerned)
I just meant no using hacked Pokemon and the such. I don't give a fuck what you do to your games outside of Pokemon.

Genning doesn't count as cheating by the way. Any manipulation within a wifi battle just results in a disconnect, a crash, and there are no publicly available cheats that have that kind of power.

If that's frowned upon, you can take out my entry, and take this middle finger to you as well.

What do you mean by genning? I'm referring to save editing with shit crazy stats and moves. Sure, legal Pokemon that are obtained through save editing but are still legal is simply frowned upon; though using illegal Pokemon shouldn't be allowed.

The game won't actually let you use them online at all as far as I know. They did in XY Free Battle but those days are long gone ;O;

Crazy stat editing can't be done in this generation for one, I'm pretty sure the wifi checks still go for Friend-to-Friend battling, meaning illegal move combinations won't be allowed anyways. So you're complaining about nothing essentially.

Sorry, haven't played this gen yet. Just started 5 min ago. I was thinking of the days of X and Y online.

The OP has been updated with everyone above !

Yeah, the online checks more or less work.

* very difficult to use an illegal/super-hacked pokemon online...or even in online trades *

Because of that, I am going to be very lenient about "Genned" Pokémon.

More or Less if your team passed the Wi-Fi check with the rules applied...your team is legal for this tournament.

Do we register ourselves on the bracket or will you fill it out yourself?

@bennyman123abc

Since this will start as a Round Robin, I will setup/finalize the brackets at the end of the month.

Still working on the rules...thinking about giving each round/match at 48 hour window to complete their battle.

Fair, too much, or too little time ?

* doing this because of difference in people's time zones. *

    I want a 120hz 4k tv but crazy how more expensive the 120hz over the 60hz are. Or even more crazy is the price of 8k's.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    No real point since movies are 30fps
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Not a big movie buff, more of a gamer tbh. And Series X is 120hz 8k ready, but yea only 120hz 4k games out right now, but thinking of in the future.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Mostly why you never see TV manufacturers going post 60hz
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I only watch tv when i goto bed, it puts me to sleep, and I have a nas drive filled w my fav shows so i can watch them in order, commercial free. I usually watch Married w Children, or South Park

    Stremio ruined my need for nas

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    What the hell is Kodi reposts? what do you mean, or "Wut?" -xdqwerty

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I got my Dad a firestick for Xmas and showed him those 3rd party sites on Kodi, he loves it, all he watches anymore. He said he has got 3 letters from AT&T already about pirating, but he says f them, let them shut my internet off (He wants out of his AT&T contract anyways)
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    That's where stremio comes to play never got a letter about it
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I just use a VPN, even give him my login and password so can use it also, and he refuses, he's funny.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I had to find and get him an old style flip phone even without text, cause thats what he wanted. No text, no internet, only phone calls. Old, old school.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    @BigOnYa, Lol I bought a new USB card reader thing on AliExpress last month for I think like 87 cents. Free shipping from China... It arrived it works and honestly I don't understand how it was so cheap.
