Pages: « 1 2 »
Welcome to the Eighth SMW Central Pokémon Showdown Tournament. I will be your host, and this time we'll be playing Balanced Hackmons! As you probably know already, Balanced Hackmons is a format where you can set almost any move, or ability to any pokémon, and you can even use mega pokémon without their evolution stone. As you can guess in this format it is harder to predict what your opponent will do because they have a large pool of move and abilities to choose from.

If you feel lost within all this choice, you can check the following to help you build your team:

Participation rules
  1. You must Sign Up in this thread.
  2. You must PM your team in plaintext format to System, to do that, open your team and without opening any Pokémon, click on the import/export button at the top, then copy the text.
  3. Once you sent your team, you may modify it until your first battle. If you wish to do so, you must PM System again with your new team.
  4. Once you fought your first battle you may not modify your team anymore, doing so will result in disqualification.
  5. The tournament will start on 09/16/2019. If you did not PM your team before this date, you will be disqualified.

Battle rules
  1. The tournament will follow the double elimination format. This means if you lose once, you will be sent to the losers bracket for a second chance.
  2. Rounds will be decided on best of three matches.
  3. Battles must be fought in Pokémon Showdown under the Balanced Hackmons format. Otherwise they will be invalid.
  4. You must post the replays of your battles or they will be invalid. To save a replay, click in the Upload and share replay button and the copy the link.
  5. If you leave in the middle of a battle or surrender, you will lose that battle, but not the round.
  6. If you forfeit the tournament or do not show up to your battle you will be disqualified immediately (you won't be sent to the losers bracket) and may be banned from joining future tournaments depending on the situation.

We'll be like diamond: brilliant and persistent. ~
This sounds interesting, with the sky nearly being the limit here, I'm gonna try to put a team together, if I'm successful, you can count me in.

Edit: I've noticed Mega Rayquaza is banned in Balanced Hackmons, does that mean Delta Stream is banned too?

No, the ability banlist is separate. Delta Stream doesn't really have a purpose in BH regardless.

It's still possible to use Mega Rayquaza in BH, but you must megaevolve it normally. This means it must know Dragon Ascent and will have Delta Stream.

Wait, I was looking at Smogon's list of banned stuff, and it says Mega Rayquaza is banned in BH. Have you changed anything on that list for this tournament? I'm very curious.

Also, can we use any moves introduced in Pokemon Let's Go Eevee/Pikachu, like Buzzy Buzz for example?

I didn't change anything. Mega Rayquaza being banned means you can't set it in your team as a mega and give it any ability, not that you can't megaevolve a regular Rayquaza.

LGPE moves can't be used because Balanced Hackmons is based on Ultra Sun and Moon.

Showdown won't actually let you fight if your team has anything illegal, but if you want to be sure, you can click the validate button in your team page to check.
Alright, I got it now.

Team has been PMed to System.

Notes
-You have until September 30th to fight your round 1 and 2 battles, including your loser bracket battle is applicable.
-You may not fight your round 3 battle on any bracket until everyone fought their round 1 and 2 battles or I state otherwise.
