View Full Version : Pokemon VGC Winter Games

Welcome to the Pokemon VGC Winter Games Tournament!!!


Introduction
Last summer, Pokemon video game tournament for the games Platinum, Diamond, and Pearl were held in across America, Japan, and in several European countries.

There were a few problems with the new tournament--the biggest being the selection process. Back then, many people would travel many miles to get to the tournament, only to find out that they weren't randomly selected to in the tournament. I was one of those people.

To that end, I created an authentic pokemon tournament over Wi-Fi that used the VGC rules with about two differences for the people that didn't get in. When it was over, a participant in the tournament suggested the "VGC Winter Games," thus, this thread was born.


Rules and Requirements
The rules of the VGC Winter Games Tournament will be the new ones that will be utilized in the upcoming official 2010 Pokemon tournament next year.
The rules can be found at: this site (http://www.phpbbplanet.com/skarmblisscom/viewtopic.php?t=237&mforum=skarmblisscom)

The battles will be double battles in which each player uses 4 Pokemon.
***You need to leave your friend code, in-game name and list of Pokemon you will use. (just the pokemon, not the moves or items or anything else.) Please try to put them in the icon form like this one: ;058;. It makes it a lot easier for me. :)

You may also change your pokemon as many times as necessary until the day before the tournament (meaning that you can't change them the day of the tournament)


Competitors

The following are listed in this order: Serebiiforums Username, In-Game name, Friend Code, Pokemon on the team.

1.TR_Jessie--------------BRIANNA--------5112 9302 8123--;359; ;230; ;382; ;392; ;272; ;468;
2. SP-Eevee-------------Rachel-----------2750 9583 0185--;250; ;384; ;145; ;212; ;482; ;461;




CONGRATULATIONS, SP-Eevee FOR WINNING!!!!



Closing
***The Tournament will take place via Wi-Fi December 20th at 4:00 Pm Eastern time.

First place winner will get a:

Mew
Modest
31/31/31/31/31/31
L5 UT
which will be provided by mattj.

Second place will get a docile shiny Rhyhorn provide by golden charizard.

I hope I can get more people to enter this year and have this more of a success, so don't hesitate to ask for entry. You can choose to drop out and/or rejoin at any time unless it is the day before the tournament.

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please either post them here or PM me (TR_Jessie) about them.

I wish you all luck in building your teams and with your battles in the tournament, as this should be a great warm-up for the real thing!

Yep, you have more credibility running tournaments than me so I'm glad you started this. You know I'm in. If it starts around winter break, that's perfect with me.

BadIntent----Malice---------0087 8724 2518----;378; ;383; ;461; ;145; ;483; ;248;

EDIT: Oh, and I think the rounds should be best of 3. Like they did at Worlds. Because I would hate to get so hyped for this and then get haxxed in round 1 and get an early exit.

Since my DS broke last time after I signed up...

Username: ---- jeyre80 ---- In-Game Name: DAWN ---- F.C. @ Platinum:4855-4426-4906 ---- F.C. @ PBR: 5370-6809-5595
---- Team: Coming Soon

Also, I think the end of December would be a better start time. People will still be out of schoo; for winter break, so battles would probably get done a little faster.

All of you have been added.

But can you all do me a favour? When you make changes or sign up to the tournament, please put your pokemon in icon form like this one: ;058;.
It makes it so much easier for me; plus, it looks better. :D

Anyway, I think I'll make them two-out-of-three matches. I don't really want to, but I will. (If you win the first two matches, you don't have to play a third one by the way.)

But, just to go against the 2 out of 3 thing, you guys know that sometimes, a person's strategy could very well rely on surprise? (Well, mine doesn't really. Just saying ;))

I totally agree. Can't speak for the others entrants, but I'm not running my main team, because people will catch on to the strategy. But you know, there's not all that much surprise when you have to list all 6 Pokemon anyway xD

5th December 2009, 5:45 AM
I'm actually quite fine with just the 1st battle. That is how PBR works and that is how I do almosta all my battling (hence why I like official tournament rules). In all honesty, a 2nd round more or less takes away the surprise factor in some strategies. I have hosted/participated in tourneys before, and round robin, where everyone battles everyone for points, seems to work VERY well. After each battle you are awarded points for A - doing the battle and B - how many pokemon you have remaining.

Well, I'd like to try this this tournament. Haven't been on Serebii for a while, but I thank BadIntent for telling me about this!

Username: Mosquitox216
In-game name: Sakuya
FC: 1977 6031 4876
Team: To be announced

Another thing - about our teams; can we switch around pokemon (while maintaining species)? Because some people might want to switch around different pkoemon of the same species, especially the ubers (ex. A person might use a Physical Rayquaza one match, and then a Mixed Rayquaza another match).

I can't believe somebody took "VashTheStampede" as their username! WTF

This should be fun, I'll try and get some of my m8s to sign up. I'll have a DS soon, so no problem. Or I'll borrow one. Which means I'll likely be using my 09 Worlds Team or something like it... meh.

BTW, you do know that you don't get to see the opponents team AT ALL unless you are in the Finals, right? I believe they should not be posted, but sent to the Tournament Organizer in a PM, but that's just my 2 cents.

I'll add in a team when I can get one sorted, as well as a FC and such.

VashTS out.

Since it's so close to the battle date, I don't suggest we do this, but next time we have a tournament this is what I suggest:

We pick a day/time to battle. We all get on a chat (SPP Wi-Fi chat cause no advertising). Then while we're all in the same chat, at the same time, we finish all 5-6 rounds. Do you know how incredibly easy and efficient that would be? I've personally been doing VGC tournaments like that on Smogon for the past couple months so I know it works.

No problem. I knew that would be the team I was using...I just needed to EV train one before the start of the tourney, and I wanted to know for sure it was complete.

Also, since I am uing a Poke that can have two different formes, can those formes be switched in between rounds. The poke does have the same Dex number under either forme, and I couldn't find a ruling in the link you posted in the OP.

If I can only use one of the formes though, I will be using Giratina-O.

Hey TR_Jessie, I've finally got my team!

In numerical order:

;143; ;150; ;250; ;272; ;392; ;482;


By the way, I have a suggestion for the tournament. It should be split into two parts - one will take places on the 18th and 19th, and one will take place on the 20th. Since we have 16 players, this can evenly be divided by 4. So...

Stage 1 - Preliminaries (Dec. 18 & 19)
Each of the 16 players will be split into 4 pools. Each pool will have 4 players in each. Each player will then (over the course of 2 days to allow for time problems) have to play round-robin matches against their opponents. Whomever gets the most wins in their pool moves to stage 2. The players should be done with their matches by midnight of the second day.

Stage 2 - Semifinals & Finals (Dec. 20)
With 1 player coming from each of the pools, that would leave 4 players in the finals. The 4 remaining players should play single elimination, best-two-of-three matches. The two winners in the semifinals move up to the finals, and best-two-of-three again. The winner of those two will be the champion. The two losers of the single elimination can face for 3rd place.

Alright, this idea is only THEORY. It is up to TR_Jessie if she wants to hold it this way. Also, these dates aren't the true ones. Suggest more ones, and leave it to her to decide on one that work for everyone!

Hey Mosquitox216, I'm just posting to say that I like your plan of arranging the battles. If we end up doing this more regularly here, I think we could do the Round Robin thing sometimes. But like TR Jessie said, and as you know, at the actual event (Regionals to be specific because everyone's first goal is to get past that) it's one loss and "good day". It's unfortunate, but that's how they made it.

TR Jessie, if on Saturday a few people still don't have their teams listed will you end up subbing them out for people who do have theirs listed?

Yeah, it is an fun idea, but that can be used in another tournament. Remember, this is strictly a VGC tournament.

Anyway, yes, I will sub them for people who have their teams.

Um, I would like for you to stick to one pokemon forme, please. Sorry that that was unclear.


Yup, ok. Will do.

That is fine. That's why I asked before the actual start of the tourney.

Switch my Giratina to Giratina-O. I don't know how to do the sprites for the alternate fomres.

Are we still gonna try to do this in two days (Sat and Sun)? I might have to leave on Monday to go to my relative's house. There's no Wi-Fi there and I have no idea when I would return. So either we get done by Sunday or I'll likely have to drop partway through. Fortunately, we do have subs.

Can't wait to start^^ I'm also donating a shiny Rhyhorn to the second place since there is a prize for the first :p. Also a suggestion, since this will be done in all one day, we should find a private chat room for all of us (which I'm looking up right now :)) because it will be much easier to communicate.

Anyhoo. People. Calm. Down. This stuff takes time, so don't just drop out. She's probably just had school this week (OMGZREELLIFE?!?!?!?!?). If this tourney is anything like last time, today will be the start, and you'll have several days to hook up with the person you need to battle, and then it'll go from there over a week or so...

I assume you're posting in the "Quick Reply" box when you message, right? If so, just type ;Pokedex number of the Pokemon;

So for Bulbasaur, just but a 001 in between semicolons. ;001;

If you clicked "Go Advanced", there is a sprite box on the left. Just click "More" to see every sprite.

Best fillers are Metagross, Cresselia, or Groudon, imo. If you can't make it, I'm guessing you get disquallified and your opponent gets a win. If both players don't show, then I guess they both lose and a BYE is placed in the next round.

Either that, or I will have to randomly eliminate some people.

Yes, he DC'd. YOU win. I'm tired of this, too. We are moving onto round 2 once and for all.

If your online, you should be in the Serebii Chat, or if you have IRC, join #sppVGC


ffs my opponent isnt here... Getting tired of this, TBH.

EDIT: It's been about an hour now. I've got to go, so I'll check in again later.

You never specified your time zone. I was on between 3-4 pm in my time zone.

Also, chat clients don't run on my computer. I have sent you both a PM and a VM that you have yet to respond from yesterday when we were both on at the same time.

Try PMing me, please.

Ughh, this is annoying. Allen hasn't been on since BEFORE 4:00 PM YESTERDAY, so it's really impossible for us to battle. IDK what's going to happen to us. I'm guessing either we both get disqualified, he gets disqualified for not even trying, or we battle. I hope it's the 3rd option O.O I really feel bad for TR_Jessie - she has to deal with all this crap that comes with running a tournament....

I am thankful for your sympathy, but most of this is my fault. I moved you to the next round. Usually, the first round is full of drop outs and stuff, but the next ones are always better.
I'm sorry that this seems so unorganized and quite unfair, but I promise next time it will be much, much better.

Just as an example of "live and learn" maybe next time it should be required that each player list their time zone on the OP along with their team and whatnot. Goodluck to everybody who is advancing! :D

I'll be here for an hour, maybe 2 max. something happened with my computer, me and my dad are working on fixing it. We ended up just doing a total reformat recently. I'm out at a friends, but I have the necessary gear to battle and ****.

My computer should be up later tonight, or at the latest, tomorrow.

Here to say my net is back up and running. I'll have to reinstall my WiFi USB because my father is still "doing work" on the computer, which explains why I haven't been able to get on here for a while..

I was on and in the WiFi room for a while last night, TR Jesse. What happened? :O Did you enter my FC incorrectly or something? I double-checked both yours and mine to see if they were correct in the Forum and my Pal Pad, and indeed they were..

I should be able to get on more frequently as the night moves on, as it is only 5:30EST for me. I'll check my PMs and stuff then.

Reporting that I got my *** whipped by Jessie.

On the phone with my GF, and I'm like "yea I'm about to play that guy in the tournament now!" And she keeps ****ing talking... "So, what do you have to help this guy with?" *sigh* and she asks the same question like 2 minutes later :|

Honestly, I lost because of 2 things:
1) I'm too used to playing Battle Tower, and over-estimated Latios's power.
2) I didn't know Water Spout hit both Pokemon. :o I was counting on sacrificing a Pokemon for Zapdos to live.. :(

Gg, and wp!

Well, here in New Yawk, we just hahd a snowstorm on Saturday. It sucked pretty badly. Awww well, time to use the trick I used on mattj to beat TR_Jessie (if I get paired up with her. If I don't, I'm sorta safe, since I don't like Rain)

You also have to remember I have no experience hands-on with Ubers. I never/don't even like them, so Jessie had a big advantage anyway. But yea, in this torney, she played better and smarter, end of story. No excuses. ;)

And I said that my GF said "What does he need your help with." I know you are a female. =p

Because those are the VGC rules.

No one seems to understand that this is supposed to be a as close as possible replica of the ACTUAL VGC.

SP-Eevee
28th December 2009, 10:09 PM
@Kashinn: Well, 4 on 4's are quicker, as are doubles and considering how large the official tournaments are think how long it'd take if it were 6 on 6.

Also, we're going to have our battle tommorow since Mosquito's not here today.

Okay, I realize my opinion doesn't mean all that much since I got ran in round one, but... If you do this again before the VGC can you post a bracket or list of wins/losses. Just so it would be easy to see exactly how all the rounds went. I had to literally read every post to see who beat who.

I am surprised at how this tourney went o.O I know you two finalists are good, but I thought MattJ or VashTS would run everybody. Well congrats to TR and SP; I've played you both and respect your skill.
