CULT RENEGADE

http://i1106.photobucket.com/albums/h367/Eeveelover824/cultrengadebanner2.png
Heartfelt thanks goes to Eeveelover824 for our clan's marvelous artwork!
Welcome.

I hope I'm not the only person who has seen enough of Scizor,Salamence and the rest of their OU kin.

Because it's painfully repetitive: identical teams,identical strategies...where did the variety all go?

Within this league house skilled specialists of the unusual and unexpected,whilst holding special tournaments with unique rules to test the skills of even the most experienced trainers.Do you have what it takes to prosper here?

Defeat five members of the Cult to try for the Renegade Crown.Victories do not have to be consecutive.
However,losing to the current champion will reset your challenge.
(Note that the league does not have a champion yet,so this position is up for grabs by anyone!)

Anybody may participate in our tournaments: all you have to do is post your sign up in the thread(title it "*")or preferably VM one of our admin(such as myself) to await your acceptance.
We will start with:

The Little Cup Triple Tournament (TBC)
In this tournament,you must use six pokemon that have not yet evolved.
-This is a 5th generation tournament,so use the latest evolutionary lines when building your teams.
Pikachu,chansey and other pokemon who have gained pre-evolutions since their release aren't allowed.
There are also special exceptions,including Scyther and Sneasel
-Pokemon that don't evolve at all also aren't allowed.
-Maximum level of each party member=lv5.Please remember to adjust when using PO
-As a side note,participating in the tournament isn't necessarily about competing to win: real victory lies in competing to break the mold that's been built around you.
-ITEM CLAUSE IN EFFECT (no duplicate items please)
We encourage you to be creative when Team Building!

-The results of any relevant battle must be recorded in transcript or video format for reference

-The "Pokemon Online"and "Pokemon Showdown" simulators allow the quick assembly of teams.
Pokemon Online may be necessary for some of our tournaments.
Both are free and have multiple advantages over wifi, so what reason is there not to?
(This isn't to say you can't use wifi, but treat this as a warning).




May the games begin!

Alright,we're good to go.

Just to clarify,title your post with an asterisk like so if you'd like to participate in the current tournament-this one's just for fun :)

i wanna! it was my idea anyway :P
i havent had a good triple battle in ages... now i have two tourneys xD
anyway... should we explain how lc works for some players who dont know?

Sid87
7th January 2013, 8:47 PM
Reserved in case I need it for anything. :)

7th January 2013, 8:49 PM
if you wanted to reserved that should have been up at the top... but we can delete all our posts other than the first 3 (i might put it there for reserve xD

No worries:as long as it's on the first page it's still convenient to view.

I've decided on a couple of members for the triple team already-and I'm starting to see a strategy developing too.

well i guess i could start on my team now... because this one is closer then the other tourney i am in...
what if we dont have enough people?

Archstaraptor
7th January 2013, 9:03 PM
It is a bit early,but I hope we get a few sign ups tomorrow.

We have a week for the word to get around though,so anything could happen at the moment.

Question: are we going ANY unevolved pokemon or are we going by Smogon's Little Cup tier?

Archstaraptor
10th January 2013, 7:53 AM
Smogon's for now-I need to check how great the stat differences are for lv5s(they shouldn't be too diverse at such an early stage).

Also,I think it will be wise if we move the tourney one week ahead-because starting on Saturday 19th will give us plenty of time to prepare.

Edit:Finished a trial team on PO.Nowhere to test it though.

Alright, it's up! :D
Time to finish my team.

joej m
10th January 2013, 9:33 PM
i personally think that we should give more time for people to get their teams for the tourney. as well as wait for more people to join and the word gets around etc.
so right now the tourney will consist of just us renegades... ._.
thats only five people... i would aim to get 10 people in the tourney before you start it.

Good idea-less deadlines,more applicants!
Out of curiosity,was next Saturday (the 19th) too little time?

joej m
11th January 2013, 1:05 PM
i think that we shouldn't start it until we get enough people.
we just start it once we have a good amount of people. but start it on a weekend please... also this is just me but i have a 4 day weekend where i am gonna be able to play pokemon once i finish studying... so i get a long time from that :P

To Everyone:I've editted the OP-the little cup triples tourney will not start until we gain more participants :)

We have six so far-note that you do not have to have a pre-made team to sign up!

Hilda
18th January 2013, 11:35 AM
I'm in! I'm usually better in double battles, but I can try all!

Archstaraptor
18th January 2013, 11:38 AM
No worries-we have double battlers too-this is just for the first tournament :)

And then there were seven...three more to go and we can hopefully start!

Welcome to the group, Chingchar! We're still young and growing here, but hopefully we will have many great battles to come!

Alright everybody reading this:we need at least two more participants for our tournament.

If you know anybody who'd be interested in the LC triples tourney(note that it's purely for fun :) ) , let one of the admin know or just post in the thread(title applications with asterisks please) ^ ^

joej m
22nd January 2013, 5:50 PM
hey i just realized something... other than me, arch, and i think sid the other mods probably won't enter in it >.> i can almost bet drizzle won't... :/

Sid87
22nd January 2013, 9:27 PM
I just invited a guy around here who MAY be interested, so we'll see how that goes.

trident20
22nd January 2013, 11:45 PM
i can be a flat double battler or an ou normal type singles battler.

can i join? 5286 9232 1961

joej m
23rd January 2013, 12:52 AM
i am pretty sure you can. as long as you use creative pokemon or strategies in your team, because that is what this place is about :)
(my stuff isn't the most creative, but my new team has a latias. and in doubles that is like seeing a leavanny xD really rare... but doing doubles is so rare anyway xD)

Of course you may Trident :)
I've just realised that a 10 player bracket wouldn't work properly-so we either need to drop or gain two more people :/
If you'd like to join the LC triples tournament Trident,that would make nine people-would anybody know three other people who would consider participating?

joej m
23rd January 2013, 4:32 PM
like i said before who says the other cults are in? I can almost promise that drizzle won't enter it.

If you're that sure Drizzle's out...
Correction:I think we had seven anyway,so six if Drizzle's out.
Let's keep the low benchmark of eight.Then we can move onto other tournaments,as this one is taking too long to take off.

joej m
23rd January 2013, 4:38 PM
i am not that sure, but for some reason i just have a feeling. he just competed in a tourney, he has 1-2 more not including this.
this isn't actually taking too long to take off. i was actually assuming that it would take 2-4 months before we held this, to give time to everyone to get settled and give time to make strategies.
so when we get everyone, i would give about 2 weeks to get ready. maybe more.

I will join just to prove joey wrong:P but I will fill out the form later.

joej m

Archstaraptor
23rd January 2013, 10:56 PM
Drizzle's in-that means all admin appear to be participating.
We've reached nine!

Let's try and go for 12: I will update the OP however with all the participants so far.

To all who are still interested in the tournament:

If we don't find twelve members by the 12th of March,it'll be a good time to consider scrapping the thread.
