    Thanks, I dedicate this win to the Water Division

    As I mentioned a few days ago, I'd like to make this next tournament monocolor, using this as a reference - http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wi...A9mon_by_color (Each participant selects a different color).

    I'll start by selecting blue.

    I might consider banning/limiting some colors actually... some are way too overpowered.

    Alternatively, if anyone has any suggestions/preferences for a tournament, please come forward and say something

    Green, cuz pro.

    EDIT: Nah nvm, I prefer random.
    I suggest the tourney holder to randomize the color for the participants using some kind of unknown method. Because I can see that Green, Blue & Brown color will completely dominate the game and could easily destroy weak colors such as pink, red, yellow, & etc. Imbalance match wont be fun, (EX: Green: politoed, tornadus, breloom, reuni, flygon, yanmega. gl with that lol)

    Or banning weather from play might work too.

    Or how about limiting each team to a total of 3 OU pokes.

    You should have seen the hyper offensive blue team I created, seriously.

    It would have ended your pokémon career then and there

    ----

    Anyway, I'll leave the decision to Nick. If we can't find a decent compromise, just play an OU tournament, standard rules and such.

    OU is boring as hell :/

    Since everybody has already got a color randomizing it is pointless

    Lol no one liked my idea : (

    Seriously I think we could solve the problem of a color being op if we just limit each team to a certain number of OU pokes. I figure each color has to have like atleast 3. then we can have fun by choosing some non OU pokes and still do well for a change.

    Sorry agito I think revenge already has blue, but you can pick another color. If we're just choosing with no limitations I'm sticking with brown : P

    This could be an exciting tournament, each color has its own argument for winning it (unlike the last tournament with uneven matchups). It'll also broaden our experience of using Pokémon we haven't really considered before, and learn to make the most of what we've got (sometimes we take our team members for granted).

    --------------------

    On a separate note, as the winner of the previous tournament (Gym Leader Monotype), I thought I'd share with you the team I used to win:

        Spoiler:- Misty's Team:


    --------------------

    ...And signs ups for the Bulbapedia-based Monocolor Tournament are as follows:
    Revenge – Blue
    Beet – Brown
    Anakbae – Green
    Muse – Yellow
    Draco Star – Red
    Agito – Purple
    Nick – Pink
    Coyote – Gray

    The remaining colors available are: Black and White.

    The Rules:
    - 6 vs 6.
    - Lvl. 100.
    - Double Elimination tournament.
    - Battles must be played using either Pokémon Online or Pokémon Showdown.
    - Use only Bulbapedia as a color reference: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wi...A9mon_by_color
    - 3 OU Pokémon maximum, per team.
    - Shinies are allowed as long as the pokémon remains within your selected color category (e.g. shiny charizard is still considered red).
    - Standard Smogon Rules (e.g. sleep clause, evasion clause, species clause and ohko clause).
    - Strictly no ubers.
    - Weather is banned (I'm looking at you Anakbae ;D)
    - Cannot swap colors once the tournament has begun.
    - Can swap team members in between battles.

    The tournament will begin as soon as the remaining places are filled. This provides time to prepare, build and test teams.

    Which would you guys be happier with? Thoughts/opinions are welcome

    Why blue & brown are banned? o.O
    Limiting the number of OU pokes or banning the weather could easily solve the "overpowering" issue instead of restricting your own freedom of choice lol.

    Thanks anak. Ok, weather is now banned.

    Anyone else have ideas on the overpowering issue? Limit to 3 OU pokes maximum (applies to all colors or just these two)?

    I think it should apply to all colors, other colors definitely have more than 3 ou pokes. Lol plus blue and brown have been sufficiently nerfed now that weather is banned (that does include weather moves like rain dance right?). I think the rules you've put down will ensure a balanced and fun experience.
