The Blind Spartan Tour Welcome to the finals of the LU subforum tournament, The Blind Spartan. Bit of an introductory bit on this tour in the following passage: Essentially this is a spin on the idea of "Pick Your Poison" that I like to call the Blind Spartan. In layman's terms, I'm going to be limiting our participants by having them randomly select two numbers. The first number will give them a "General" Pokemon from a pool of pre-selected Pokemon, with a twist, they can't use any of the other Pokemon in the pool. They have to build around this Pokemon and build a team that can work around the other pool Pokemon and any useful Pokemon that can be used in LU. Catchy, no? The second number will be a battling condition, meaning it's a restriction on what they will not be allowed to use in their team building. It could be a limition of moves, hazards, status, or even Pokemon roles fit to a certain T. This tournament follows standard clauses for competitive play: - Sleep Clause - Species Clause - Self KO Clause - Team Preview Clause - Porygon2 Freeze Clause is optional - Best of 1 til the finals. As this is the finals, the format is changed to a best of three match up. What this means is that instead of setting me one set of numbers to get a Pokemon to build around and a battle condition they must abide by, they will send me three sets. That means they will/can have up to three different team structures for these matches. The Pokemon and battle conditions will be constant for the finals, but I will randomize them three separate times, so players might end up with the same Pokemon and condition more than once depending on what numbers they send me, but that's to be seen by them yet. Anyway the Pokemon that our finalists can end up with for this round are as follows: Nidoqueen, Tyrantrum, Moltres, Slowking, Goodra, Durant, Cloyster, Exploud, Pangoro, and Virizion. They can only use one of each of the following for their teams based on numbers they draw, and can't use any of the other bolded Pokemon. Thus making it difficult to exploit easy combinations in the tier. Match-Up: @Elize Lutus vs @gengar17 I'm not going to call for a specific deadline, as you both have sent me numbers, you both know to battle, and you both have had contact. Please don't make this draw out any longer than a week please. I have sent out each competitors team builds and conditions. They DO NOT have to use them in the order they sent in the numbers. However, they are only allowed to use each team build once, unless of course they got a repeat, which only I will know which is why I ask you save logs/replays for me.
