Monotype Melee
Yes yes, another monotype tourney!


Zomg yet another monotype tourney, but with a twist!
These types of tourney have short lifespans around here, bit my aim is to change this.
So without any further Budew...

The Rules:

Each contestant will be using a monotyped team (in a 5:1 ratio) with the addition of 1 'wildcard' poke, to cover weaknesses.
The type however, is unrestricted.
This is to avoid match-ups that would favor but one of the two types.
Meaning a contestant can use ANY monotype for ANY battle.
The only rule to follow is the 5:1 ratio, fail to comply, and you lose.
No discussion, if 5 pokes on your team aren't of the same type you're disqualified.
All battles will be held under standard rules which can be found here. (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=290790)
The system of advancing will be dependant on the amount of sign ups.

Signing up:

Post your name and FC.

The Prizes:

Under construction, will post shortly.
Donations are welcome.

The Contestants:

1. Iggly - 2578-0971-0221

Can you please leave round 1 for another day? I was under the impression that it started tomorrow, and so I didn't check until late today. I've PMed my opponent, but it seems that he's offline now. (We're probably in different time zones)

Speaking of time zones, what if two people who are supposed to battle each other live in completely opposite time zones?

This started already? I really need to get on Serebii more often. Penguin, you can find me on the chats, someone somewhere should be able to find me for you.

Landotron
31st March 2009, 12:55 AM
Woah, sorry. I was skimming so I just read the Sunday part, and missed the April 5th thing.

Okay. Cousin Dan is 9 timezones away from me, but hopefully we'll be able to agree on a time.

Sorry for the confusion. :)

Im gonna have to give the win to Pokewiz7o8 reasons being that Ive been working a lot recently and ive not been able to assemble a mono team together in such a short amount of time (I only found the line-ups had been made only recently, Dam Lag!) Sorry for withdrawing.

Iggly
5th April 2009, 11:35 AM
The first post has been updated :D

Congrats do both Dan and Pokewiz!

Note: today is the deadline for the first round, if you're having troubles getting your match done then please state so.
A little over 12 hours left, so get a battling folks!

Iggly

Edit: Beat OmegaPit 2-0, great game dude =D Felt you were gonna stomp me throughout the whole battle

OmegaPit
5th April 2009, 6:01 PM
Yeah gg Iggly considering I was at a disadvantage I defended quite well but in the end I was outdone. Should've stuck with me good'ol dragunz.

Iggly
5th April 2009, 7:05 PM
Considering the match up you did awesome yes
And yes, glad you didnt bring your dragons ;P

Also, the deadline for the matches is due in 5 hours

Im expecting a burst of activity!

So get those battles done, and if you cant then please state so :)


Iggly out

BaldWombat
5th April 2009, 7:59 PM
I still have not been able to get on at the same time as Penguin since the other day when he said we could battle and then had to run just as we were about to get started.

Iggly
6th April 2009, 9:06 AM
Good morning to all!

To my HUUUUGE disappointment, I noticed only half of the battles have been completed:


1. Iggly vs 13. Omegapit

2. Baldwombat vs 9. Ima Penguin 95

3. Phop vs 15. Pokewiz7o8

4. Kinder Surprise vs 12. z051792

5. Goketsu vs 14. Hauntershadow92

6. Yoshifan22 vs 11. Lucario Dragon

7. Snow904 vs 10. Darkhonchcrow

8. Cousin Dan vs 16. Landotron



So to keeps things flowing, I've decided the following:

The matches that havent been done, have till the end of friday (April 10th) to do so.
If a match still hasnt been done, and there hasnt been made any effort to do so, both battlers will be subbed out for someone who has fought in round one.
Meaning that if none if the battles are done, all battlers from Round 1 advance.
I ofc hope this wont be the case, but I do need to keeps things flowing.

For the battlers that have advanced already, take this extra time to improve your teams, the tourney will continue shortly.

Iggz out

I've sent my second pm and vm to my opponent today, of this week and still have not heard back. We've only be online together at the same time once and as we were about to start he had to run off. I really want to get this battle in but things are looking to good right now.

Let womby through. It was my fault we couldnt battle. I feel sorry for him and he would have beat my *** to hell and back anyways. Take this as a forfeit Iggs.

Iggly
11th April 2009, 3:18 PM
Alrighty then, sure went smoothly xD

That concludes Round 1:

1. Iggly vs 13. Omegapit

2. Baldwombat vs 9. Ima Penguin 95

3. Phop vs 15. Pokewiz7o8

4. Kinder Surprise vs 12. z051792

5. Goketsu vs 14. Hauntershadow92

6. Yoshifan22 DQ vs 11. Lucario Dragon DQ

7. Snow904 DQ vs 10. Darkhonchcrow DQ

8. Cousin Dan vs 16. Landotron

This is how this came to be:

Both Snow904 and Darkhonchcrow asked to be out of the tourney.
Both Yoshifan22 and Lucariodragon are DQ'd due to low/no activity, one forgot, the other didnt have a team ready.
This leaves me with 2 extra spots in Round 2.
Rather than putting in people that lost in Round 1, I've decided to let Baldwombat, Ima Penguin 95, Goketsu and Hauntershadow92 advance on the count of having difficult timezones and having showed activity/made effort to get this done.


*small trip to Random.org*

Round 2:

1. Iggly vs 5. Goketsu

2. Baldwombat vs. 9. Ima Penguin 95

4. Kinder Surprise vs. 14. Hauntershadow92

8. Cousin Dan vs. 15. Pokewiz7o8


This round start today and ends Sunday the 19th

Good luck to all participants!

Ok, Dan moves on to the next round by forfeit. Iggly got banned for who knows what and for who knows how long. I am hoping that one of the 3 of us has a way to get a hold of him. ;)

Seeing has how I cbf to use that website, all matches were made by writing names on pieces of paper and drawing them.


Round 3

(4) Kinder Suprise vs (8) Cousin Dan
(2) BaldWombat vs (1) Iggly

Have fun and let's get these matches done.

Just trying to keep this thing going as it has lagged badly. I rarely see Iggly because of timezones and mostly talk to him via PM. Feel free to ask him what he wants to do when you see him. If he wants to change matchups that is fine with me. Although I do like the idea of facing Iggs as I need some payback for the SPL.
