    *their hands; a lot of people

    Someone could host a mono-color tournament.
    But I still think BL Triples is the best kind of tournament ever.

    I was thinking about doing a free-for-all tournament with 36 challengers and mark sleep clause.

    I think, you should have a tourney with one specific group and or type. Examples.. All grass Pokemon, or all water.. maybe a selection of both.. Another idea which I think I talked to you about is pre-evolutionary battles, or even worse an eevee tournament.. theirs enough to go round plus all the different moves..

    - Metronome tournament can be fun, but is all about luck.
    - I like the idea of having a Uber Doubles Tournament. Nothing too complicated.
    - A only-Smeargle tournament sounds fun too.

    You guys can send Oneballjay and I your applications for these. (they must follow the format written in the tournament guidelines thread)

    @monkeycar, I'm not sure what you mean by "all grass Pokemon, all water." Isn't that called a "Monotype" tournament? And a tournament consisting of pre-evolved Pokemon (aka NFE) is very complicated since no one has access to analyses and stuff to learn from.

    Why not have an tournament consisting of only the top 100 players (tiers discussed later), and anybody else can bet on victors. If a person bets the victor of five individual tournament matches correctly, they get to fight the champion as a last ditch effort to obtain glory ^^.

    Too much elitist.
    Also, PO is new and rankings are very volatile now. You can get from 500 to 50 in only a few battles.

    All smeargles wil be dominate by scarfed fighting moves, calling it right now.

    What happened to the good old Mono Color Tournaments we used to do?(except now theyd be controlled somehow, like by pokedex color, which excludes shiny coloration)

    I was thinking perhaps a Little Cup esque tier, in which the only pokemon allowed are 2nd Evolutions out of a three-pokemon line. Then it's a sort of mix up of NU and UU. I think that could be quite interesting.

    Oh right, Fighting-type moves will be banned. I have participated in a Smeargle-only tournament once before and it was very fun and enjoyable. With just one simple rule banned (no Fighting-type moves).

    Also, a Mono-color tournament would be nice. Except that there aren't many Pokemon to make a team out of from one color. So you'll have to give a player two or three colors to work from instead of one.

    And there are still the shiny forms if you still can't find enough good pokemon for that color.

    The trouble with shiny forms is that the pokedex doesnt classify them, so there will be inconsistancies in what shiny is deemed what color. Unless of course, someone wants to go through and classify hundreds of shiny sprites

    What about a mono-region? You choose a region, you need to have in your team the starters 3rd form and other 3 pokes that you like from that region.

    How about this for an idea one pokemon from each (non-uber) tier what I mean by that is one from LC one from NFE one fom NU one from UU one from BL and one from OU. the LC pokemon would be allowed to be level 100 to fit the tournament.

    If you did mono color, it kind of looks like Blue would be broken, even barring Ubers.

    I think other colors could give them a run, like purple, suprisingly

    If you eliminate all the useless Pokemon (since people would obviously go for OUs and UUs), then you will only have a very small amount of usable Pokemon in the 10 different mono-colors. For example, if the color was Pink, then you would only see a player make a team out of: Blissey, Clefable, Lickylicky, Milotic, Mesprit, Miltank, Mr.mime, Porygon, Slowbro, Slowking, Wigglytuff. Which would even be a good team.

    Here's an example of this sort of tournament that was hosted on Teamuber: http://teamuber.net/forum/showthread.php?t=8001

    The host chose two different colors per Round for users to make a team out of. This allows users to spot threats of both colors and make a viable team to win with.

    But, we can choose one color per player IF the colors are given to them by PM. We can't allow people to pick their color because then they would just pick the best color to make a team with. And so you'll see everyone using the same teams.

    blue would not be broken, because yellow would hand them their ass easily.

    mono color could easily turn into monotype...

    What about a tournament where the moves of our pokes doesnt have to be on the smogon page of that poke, just to make some original movesets.

    Not sure if anyone has said this but maybe a monotype tourney? I'm not sure how it would play out, just that everyone's pokemon on a team would have to be the same type. Dual types would be allowed (Like you could use Lucario on either a fighting or steel team). I think it would be easier for a server to check it by making a whole team have to have a same type in common (No wildcards). Any thought on this idea?

    I thought that forum run tournaments weren't going to be allowed until the sim got out've beta, and if you guys went back on your word for this then thats bullcrap, because I requested to make the first forum wide one.

    Well if you want to host one, read the rules on how to. Feel free to pitch your idea to Eternal or myself. If we approve you can host one.

    Timed Co-ordinated Team Building tournment.

    These are always only one day events although the teams could techinally join to make a full-blown tourney.

    Yeah, the TCTB thing worked pretty well when we did some NU ones coordinated on PNU. It would probably work for any other tier just as well.

    How about a tournament where teams have to do a TCTB each round for a different format (normal tiers, BL, Suspect Stage 3 etc.)

    Problem with the TCTB is that everyone that's joining has to be on the server at the same time. Which is almost impossible for everyone of different timezones to be in. While it's also impossible to host it on Beta server since other tournaments go on and hundreds of users are online.

    We can turn off all tournaments and create a "TCTB" format tournament. But, most people aren't going to be interested and hosting will be VERY difficult with the amount of users online. While we're restricting whole timezones so not everyone is going to have a chance to participate in it.

    -Knock out battles

    -one legendary of each group (you need to pick one out of the three regies, one out of the three bird, etc) (Birds, beasts, golems, lake guardian, dragon trio, Weather)

    -NFE doubles

    -You're not allowed put enetry hazard \ not using a single type (for example, if you choose fire, you can't use heatran, flareon, etc) \ etc.

    All legend tournament but you can't use legends that are almost impossible to beat like Darkrai.
