Hello One and all to the Partners in Crime Tournament. Here your battling skills will be tested to to the extremes along with a unique way to see how good your team building and preparation skills are. More than just the basics of battling is required to win here.
Your Partner In Crime
What makes this different to other tournies is that you will have to pick one Pokemon which you will have to use in all of your tourny matches and this Pokemon will be referred too as your partner in crime. You may change the other 5 members of your team as much as you like between rounds and the set of your partner in crime may be changed aswell.
Whatsmore is that you may not choose a pokemon to be your partner in crime if someone else has already claimed it. So if someone has picked Pikachu as their partner in crime then no one else after them can pick Pikachu as their partner in crime. You are, however, allowed to use Pikachu in your team even if someone else has chosen it.
It is recomended that you choose your partner in crime well and think it through carefully in your team preparations. Let's just say that if you pick Scizor, don't be surprised when you come up against a Gyarados or a Zapdos.
~ Everything I listed under the "Your Partner In Crime" section.
The winner will recieve first choice of prizes, then the runner up will get the next choice and the poke that is left will go to the person in 3rd place.
There will be either 24 or 32 entrants depending on the amount of people that wish to join. If the tourny reaches 24 entrants and you want to join, post to say so, that way even we don't reach 32 people I can just make you a sub.
Each round will last one week. If someone is inactive for 4 of these days then they will be replaced by a sub in round one to get the battle done. If your opponent is inactive then post in this thread to show that you are active to show that you are trying and avoid being disqualified. This is the same thing that Femme Fatale did in her masterclass tourney so credit goes to her for the idea.
If you do not think that you will be active enough to finish the tourney then DO NOT SIGN UP. I am sick and tired of this site killing tournies due to laziness.

Why you picked your partner in crime (for lulz): Personal favorite, and probably the toughest Pokemon I have ever raised. The number of people whose teams my beloved Spiritomb has single-handedly crushed... I will not waste my time trying to recall. Penguin, you know what I'm talking about.
