    kinda dumb. I bet you'll see teams filled with hacked pokemon and legendaries which are over-leveled and have OHKO movesets which take takes out the challenge in the tournament

    Obviously movesets will have to be in the practical range. As well as within stat maxes . . this is an official tournament we're talking about. . . they may be hacked, but they were hacked within a certain range.

    I went to Pokemon Rocks Seattle back in '04, and the tournament they ran there used standard competitive play rules (ubers banned, no-otk, 1 of each item, sleep clauses, etc).

    In fact, I think I have video somewhere of the finals/semi-finals.

    lol.. this tournament actually kind of got me interested. I've actually stopped playing Pokemon after Gold/Silver. So I'm so outdated. But I just went on youtube and looked at some of the pro battles. Wow, I never knew pokemon involved so much more strategy.. lol. Well, against a human player of course.

    And..

    Rofl. Sorry.. it just reminds me of an inside joke with my friends.

    Although I can't join because I live in Canada, for once, I'm glad I have a legitimate cart.

    Yeah, and I'm sure they also check for Action Replay and such.

    Pokemon tournament sounds fun...if this were like three years ago!

    Pokemon game formula is getting old! [​IMG]

    What are you talking about?

    Competitively play has changed dramatically since the release of D/P.

    Yeah it's so hard to actually formulate the 'perfect team' I've gotta try to balance their Type Weakness with move and strategy variety to cover everything from Status-inflictions to just plain out beat down

    on a sidenote... Oooh you can use Snorlax ;D

    Too bad I'm not going down to the tournament to enter. . .

    I'm still deciding if I should enter the tournament.

    I think he means that the battles are aging. I agree because I never had that much fun playing with menus.
