The Official Pokesun Gym Leader Tournament

Hello everybody and welcome to our first PokeSun League event of the year! Over the past 48 hours we've been waiting for members to enter this tournament to be in with a chance of becoming the newest Gym Leader. If you've kept up with the previous thread then you'll know that we've had to make an emergency decision to ensure this tournament goes on. As head of the league, ninJAS has decided to enter two current Gym Leaders into the tournament; one being himself and the other being yours truly. We however will have a very specific rule placed upon us to make this fairer. We will both be using EXACTLY the same team in every match we play.

For this reason, one or two of the tiers have been changed to accommodate; the Sky Battle for Round 3 has been replaced with Ubers, and Regular OU in round 2 has been replaced with Gen 5 OU. All tiers for each round can be found below.

Spoiler:
Original Bracket:

Round 1- Weather Teams

Round 2- Gen 5 OU

Round 3- Ubers

Round 4- Gen 6 Doubles

Losers Bracket Rounds:

Round 1- Gen 5 OU

Round 2- Ubers

Round 3- Gen 6 Doubles

Finals- Gen 6 OU (Clear Skies)


Next up, the rules
  • Do not watch other participants matches.
  • Be respectful towards all other participants.
  • Please save replays of all of your matches and send them to myself, ninJAS or another Gym Leader. We will use those as proof of your results, and to use them to check out your battling ability and/or potential.
  • If you lose one match then don't be disheartened, as you will be put into the loser's bracket and given a second chance to reach the finals from there.
  • While the PokeSun Showdown server is down, please play your battles either on the main server or on The Battle Tower server.
  • Last but certainly not least; enjoy yourselves. While there may be an incentive to win the tournament, being a good sport and enjoying yourself is a much bigger reward in the long run.


Now without further ado, click here for the brackets, then go out there and have a blast!

Note: Remember to check what type of match you're playing for each round. Playing the wrong match-up will mean the result is void and you will have to re-battle.

Weather Teams versus @ChaosMasterMartin.

If we picked different Weather Conditions, it'll be a power struggle to get the weather to our side.

I'm probably not going to win, if at all. I've got nothing to lose honestly.

Let me put this forward before the tournament starts, since it's something a lot of people forget.

Jas and I are (I believe) two of the longest standing Gym Leaders at the moment. We were both promoted to GL at the same time after being involved in a tournament much like this one. I actually won that tournament, but Jas was promoted as well because he performed well, showed great character and good sportsmanship (something which has helped him to reach admin now). While winning the tournament will guarantee a GL spot, making a good impression in any or all aspects mentioned above could get you a spot as well. So enjoy yourselves.

I understand if I don't get a spot, it'll will certainly not be a sore loser. It would fuel me to get better (since there'd be no where to go but up for me).

I would accept losses and wins as they come.

But, how should we do the battles? The PS Showdown server is still not working.

Most of us have been battling on other showdown servers, with the most common one being the TBT server.

What does TBT even mean? I feel really left out in the dark. That, and I really haven't used Pokemon Showdown all too often...

Looks like it's me and @FormerOG767 battling weather teams in the first round! I don't know when I can do this first battle, but I'll make sure that we get it in soon. ^^

I agree with what Miles said though, we should probably use the same type of weather. Clashing systems could be rough. XD (Unless that's what the Gym Leaders want and would like to see how we handled that?)

You may use whatever whether you like, whether it's the same or different. Both are just as challenging. On one hand having the same weather means neither of you are at any kind of an advantage, nor at you at a disadvantage. On the other hand, differing weathers means you can swing the tide of the battle constantly, making it more challenging but certainly more entertaining.

That is exactly what we want to see @smoakdragon Wink

Weather Wars (2 different weather teams) we ridiculously common last gen and fairly common this one as well so you will have to know how to combat them and get the weather in your favor. When people know their opponent will be using a weather team though they tend to be packing at least one Pokemon that does extremely well in a weather type other than their own (Like Sun teams that pack Kingdra).
