    Hey, all. Let’s have a tournament, we haven’t had one of these in a couple of years.

    The last time I tried to make a tournament I got bogged down by all the different schedules, so I made a poll at the top of the page at what month you want the tournament in. We’re not having it now, classes are just starting for me, but in late spring and summer should be good.

    So, who wants to play some pokemanz? D:

    Totally up for this. May would be best for me (training time and all), but I can do it anytime that's not now.

    Probably won't compete but which list are you going to use for the ban list, just out of curiosity? Excadrill will be coming off of uber, Blaziken will probably stay in, but I'm not caught up on the rest.

    The generation six metagame has just started, so banlists are up in the air right now. A month or so before the tournament starts, I'll post a complete set of rules.

    Wifi list or Smogon list? Honestly I probably can't compete, I was decent during gen 4 but my interest ran out before gen 5 came out and I never really caught up. No fucking clue what's in gen 6, I don't even know wtf fairy is. lol.

    I'm definitely in. It'd use a simulator, right?

    I voted for June seeing as that's right after classes end and I'll be itchin' for some vidya, though to be honest, late mid to late May would work as well. I just can't have it in early May. Can't juggle finals with pokemans.

    I'm in! Haven't done this here before but will it be through Pokemon Online?

    Voting for June, I'm applying for a 2 week trip to Iceland in may through my Uni so it might be hectic doing it then. But I'll be back by the 24th if the tournament is in late may.

    Probably Smogon, haven't decided yet.

    It'll be either through Pokemon Online or Pokemon Showdown, the hot new battle simulator. I'm leaning towards the latter, though I haven't played on PO for a while.

    Eh, I'm in, although Smogon is making some questionable bans.

    April and May are tied for three votes each. If you haven't voted yet, please do so.

    While April is the most popular, I have an exam on the 28th, so the tournament is going to be held in May. Early May, like in the first week. I don't know how long the tournament will last, if we get twelve people there will be four rounds. However, I don't want any dropouts once the tournament begins. If you think you might be too busy to play during that two-three week time period, don't sign up. I don't want any dropouts, guys. :(

    Now that you guys know the date, please post in the thread if you still want to play.

    SIGN UP LIST:
    1. KaiDASH.
    2. ChaosGuy.
    3. Kalas.
    4. Aekiel.
    5. Rah.
    6. Vesvius.
    7.
    8.
    9.
    10.
    11.
    12. MonkeyEpoxy.

    The tournament has no specific limit, but I doubt there'll be more than twelve people.

    I'll play. I may be busy in May but I'll be able to give you with at least a months warning if so.

    Tentatively pencil me in to the 12 spot. Finals here are the first week of May, and my participation in the tourney hinges on how I'm doing in class as that gets nearer. I'll know for sure by early April if I can do it. If you get 12 hopefuls before I can make a decision, I'll bow out.

    I have exams in the first week of May but those are generally in the morning and I'm sure I can make some time for the tournament so count me in.
