LAIRON IS THE WINNER OF THE SET!unfortunately
The main idea of Pokemon Survivor is that a theme is chosen, 20 or so Pokemon are chosen to fit that theme, and every round the voters vote off their least favourite, with the one that has the most amount of votes getting out. This happens until there is only one Pokemon left, and that Pokemon is declared the winner.
However, if you're a Survivor voter who came from the previous Pokemon Survivor or earlier on in this one, you'll know very well that this isn't always how things work. Occasionally we want to mix up the way we get a Pokemon into the Winners Circle by having a grand set where the rules are changed and the theme is bigger than usual.
The first time EA and I decided to do this was back in the first Pokemon Survivor the two of us owned. This was the Ultimate Type Set
. How it worked was for each type, people would nominate 10 Pokemon, and the one who was voted the favourite moved on to a final group consisting of representatives from each type. While doing this, it seemed huge and complicated, however upon reflection EA and I realized it was really just nomination, vote, nomination, vote, and so on. So, we had to top it.
Our next mega set also took place in the previous Pokemon Survivor, towards the end. This time, instead of going with just types, we chose a much broader topic - it was the Ultimate Gym Leader Set
. This time, we went through every single gym leader's roster, and the voters voted on their favourite, which moved on to a final gym leader group. Unlike the Ultimate Type Set, however, once this final group was established, we put them in four smaller groups of eight, only advancing two in each group to a Top 8, where a winner was declared. It seemed like EA and I could do no better - until we realized this was basically the same thing as the Ultimate Type Set, only bigger. So, once again, we had to top it.
That brings us to what most people here remember - The Legendary Tournament
. This time, we dropped the "group advancing" concept from the other two giant sets, and instead we had a full on tournament, with 1 vs. 1 matchups and the winners facing other winners in succession until we got a final batch of the best legendaries, where a winner was determined. This time it looked like EA and I had done it; this was something long, interesting and different in Survivor. However, a tournament style was also a little bit cliche, so we still hadn't achieved the most epic set we could come up with.
However, after three huge sets in the history of my and EA's ownership of Pokemon Survivor, each one getting more intense and more unique, we finally thought up a set like no other ever done in both Pokemon Survivor and in overall games here at Serebii. The set rules and format was determined, but a theme that could gives us enough Pokemon was also needed. What is this theme you ask? It is...
THE GRAND ANIME TRAINERS’ SET OF EPIC PROPORTIONS!!!!1!!!
BTW, cookie goes to whoever actually read all of that.
Rules of the Game
There will be around 20 Pokemon at the beginning of every set. You will vote off your least favourite, and you will have ONE vote PER ROUND. Breaking this rule will cost you your vote for the round. You may change your vote, but you may only do it once per round, and you must state what your old vote is in the post. Then, the Pokemon who has the most votes at the end of the round is eliminated. You are allowed to post without a vote, but you must make it clear somewhere in the post that you have already voted.
The Pokemon that wins the set gets added to the winners circle! When there are ten pokemon in the winners circle, the same type of thing will happen. Once a winner is decided, it goes into the "Hall of Fame". Once 10 of that is made, it get's added to "Serebii.net Favourite".

Now, this game would be no fun if you voted off Pokemon the same way round after round. So, there are a few special rounds that get added into the game to make things interesting. Here they are:
- This is when two pokemon are left. When this happens you have to be clear if you want the certain one to win or lose. If it is not clear enough, it will not be counted.
- If one of the owners/co-owners puts in size 5 text, bolded, and underlined anything that has "twist" in its name that means there was the same amount of votes for two or more pokemon. Then, both pokemon get eliminated.
- Once per game, at a random point, this will occur. Where you vote for your favorite Pokemon that is still in and the Pokemon with the most votes will be immune from voting against until the top 3. At the top 3, it will come back, and create the top 4.
- This round can occur at any time, at any point, excluding winner's circle and it can occur more than once a set. Here, you must vote for two pokemon, but the rules still apply that the pokemon with the most votes is out, though it is likely that there will be a twist.
- This round occurs during every first round of a set. In addition to your regular vote on who you want out, you predict who you think will win the entire set. If a person predicts correctly, they have the ability to automatically eliminate any Pokemon of their choice until the Top 10 begins. If multiple people predict correctly, they vote on who should be eliminated. You cannot participate if you can predict the future.
- This round can happen more than once per set, but in addition it can also not happen during a set. In this round, you MUST PM either Sinnoh Champion or Electivire Addict your vote (depending on who is updating next) as opposed to in the thread itself.
MUST READ - RULES FOR THE GRAND ANIME TRAINERS’ SET OF EPIC PROPORTIONS!!!!1!!!
Yes, we know that bright red kills your eyes, that's the point.
Anyways, this round is going to consist of 96 Pokemon - the 96 Pokemon that are owned or have been owned* by main characters of the Pokemon Anime (main character = whoever is listed as one on Serebii's Character Bio page). Now obviously bringing down 96 Pokemon to only 1 winner is going to be a very tough job, and one that we cannot do by simple voting. So, we will slowly narrow down the amount of Pokemon with different phases that will have different voting rules. Below is the list of phases (with the one we are currently on bolded)
*Some Pokemon have been excluded because EA and I have deemed that the character never officially owned them as trainer + Pokemon
Phase 1 - The Pokemon will all be divided into mini sets based on who their trainer is. Regular voting off style will take place to bring down the amount of Pokemon to a predetermined number (that is approximately half of the Pokemon the trainer owns). The Pokemon that are not voted off at the end move on to Phase 2, while we then move on to the next trainer. There shall be 48 Pokemon left by the end of this phase.
Phase 2 - To be explained upon Phase 1's completion.
Phase 3 - To be explained upon Phase 2's completion.
Phase 4 - To be explained upon Phase 3's completion.
Phase 5 - To be explained upon Phase 4's completion.

Here are Ash's 39 Pokemon - only 20 will proceed. Voting off 19 Pokemon will take too long, so the TWO Pokemon with the most votes at the end of each round get out. Please note that even though two Pokemon get out, you still only get ONE vote:
Proceeding to Phase 2
Current Winners Circle
Previous Hall of Fame
Current Hall of Fame
A Serebii.net Favorite!
Prediction Time and auto-elimination for the previous Prediction Time will only be in the FINAL PHASE. The winners of last Prediction Time will be announced when that begins, and the first round of that phase will be a Prediction Time round.
