Hello, everyone, so you want to be the very best like no one in Dtoid ever was? Well, this is your opportunity.

Hereby I present to you the first Pokémon Community Tournament:

CONSIDERATIONS:

*A lot of us has had the games for a while now, and this tournament is so we can all get to know each other better and have a great time, so I've decided to pick up an idea Agidyne had, use only newly caught/breed Pokémon, that's to say, Pokémon with no EV special training, so the new trainers don't have a hard time competing.

* A lot of you have debated that using freshly 0 EV's in everything could be detrimental, so you can opt and use your playthrough team, or any team that isn't specifically EV-Competitive trained, the spirit of this tournament is a casual competition, so we can have a good time while not spending a lot of time EV training, also to get newcomers to have an easier time, since not everyone has the game yet...

*The tentative date of the start of the tourney is the end of the next month, so more people can get the game and beat it...

RULES: There hasn't been established a solid metagame for Gen VI regarding rules and tiers so we'll go with the following.
*Species Clause: Only one Pokémon of a specie can be in a team.
*Sleep Clause: You can only inflict sleep to one of your opponents Pokémon at a time, if you break this rule, you lose the match.
*Standard Tiering: Don't use Ubber legends like Mewtwo, Zygarde, Xerneas nor Iveltal, also, don't use the speed boost blaziken, since it was banned so we'll consider it as Ubber.
*Evasion Clause: Moves or items that boost evasion are banned.
*OHKO Clause: OHKO Moves are banned (a.k.a Sheer Cold/Fissure/Guillotine)
*Self KO Clause: If both players have only one Pokemon left, moves which KO both the user and the opponent are not allowed (e.g. Explosion, Destiny Bond). If recoil damage would cause a tie, Self KO Clause does not activate, and the player who last attacked is the winner.

Battle mode:

*Singles
*LV.50 Bracket (So all pokémon go to lv 50, regardless of their level)


ENTRY:

Just leave a comment below with your Friend Code (Or tell me if your friend code is in the Pokémon Community blog)
