Why no Elite Four?

Partly due to difficulty in not being able to switch your team throughout the challenge and dealing with 12 different types, and also having the challenge go faster and more efficiently.
>>

Any challengers?

>>20564486
>Why no Elite Four?
Because a challenge of 12 people is too long for a lot of people to want to take on. 8 Gym Leaders is a great challenge length.

There is going to be a few mini events between when this challenge ends and when the tourney for ORAS starts. The challenge has been quite ded this season, and we're hoping the mini events, along with the ORAS hype will draw in a bunch of new people. Hope this clears things up.
>>
>>20589348
Going on hiatus isn't exactly the way to become more popular.
>>
>>20589315
Good games, Ryan!
My Steel continues to give you some issues it seems.

Grvio wins 2-0!
>>
>>20589405
It's better we take a small break so hype can properly build, and allow the chance to have mini events than to run this into the ground and extinguish this for everyone

Also, FLYING GYM OPEN.

Wake up Murrica so you can battle me

>>20589405
Just out of interest, what do you think would be a good way to boost popularity?
>>
>>20590683
From what I've seen. Most people only really care about the Monotype tournaments. Its a fun format thats somewhat uncommon. You would definitely be more popular if you cut out the whole gym leader thing and just had a tournament every couple months.
>>
>>20590740
Well, technically that happens anyway.

Gym challenge is the 'in between', if you think of it like that.
>>
>>20590740
Regular tournaments are kinda boring though, compared to the challenge of beating nine other people.

Maybe .. it might spice things up a bit if challengers were only allowed to use mono teams as well? It would make the challenge more difficult and would bring people back for rematches at a higher rate than usual. Getting to champ would be much more difficult, as well. Just a thought

No.
No.
Fuck no.
The gyms are hard enough as it is, and you already have to balance for 8 different types plus the Champion's team.
Not to mention it makes the whole concept of mono type gyms redundant.
>>
>>20591123
Ya, it's probably a bit much haha. The option is already there for those who really wanna run with a mono team anyways.


Callum/Nips/Onyx mentioned mini-events that would come in between the ending of the challenge and the ORAS tourney, what kind of events would those be? Interested
>>
>>20591406
dubs mono tourney
>>
>>20591406
When ORAS comes out, will we be limited to gen 3 pokes? And will we have to get ORAS to enter?
>>
>>20595113
It will not be limited to gen 3 mons, and I imagine you can use either OR/AS or X/Y
>>
>>20595179
Cool, I wanna wreck everything with a mono fairy team. If I don't win a gym position.
>>
Ice gym open for a bit
>>
>>20591406
Mono little cup tourney. On showdown since it's a mini-event (bad pun) and no one will want to breed and EV train a full team of baby mons

Or not, whatever lol
>>
Speaking of the main tourney, after the leaders for each type are set, is it done by Round Robin, or in the case of elimination, who gets bye?
>>
>>20597631
Round robin, so after 5 rounds for the OR/AS tourney, you get 3 points per game win (not match) and -1 point per loss. So if you lose a match 1-2, you still get one point. The top 8 point getters get offered gym leader spots

Hopefully I can make it work next time, but I'm gonna battle some other leaders first lol.

>One or two mini events over the course of several months generating interest in something completely unrelated
>implying interest needs to be generated at all
>>
So what are the rules for getting in on this?
>>
>>20614278
I missed where it said there was going to be just one or two mini events, could you show me?

And why is attempting to generate interest a bad idea? If we kept things going the way they are now, there'd be less people each time. That break and promotion through smaller events could draw more people in.
>>
>>20614390
How about you read the doc?
>>
>>20614426
It doesn't say how to register
>>
>>20614490
Yes it does.
>>
>>20614499
Oh Jesus I just stopped scrolling before that, I'm too tired to not retard, sorry
>>
>>20614499
While I'm already a tard, you can change which three of your mons you use between challenges right? Just not the overall 6?
>>
>>20614395
But there aren't fewer and fewer people every time, it's been keeping stable all the time.
And since when in the history of fucking ever do side events make the main event more popular? The people who attend side events are the ones who already go to the main one. Even if you wanted to gain more attention, completely halting the event and skipping over an entire season is a pretty shitty way to go about it, because the new people who do show up to mini events likely aren't going to give two shits about the main one. On top of that, the people who are already interested in the Challenge will lose interest, because they're interested in the Challenge, not a bunch of boring generic tournaments.
>>
>>20614519
i did the same thing, anon. i quit reading after the first page but i got a nice response to my stupidity
>>
>>20614562
is not just the popularity aspect, people want to have the next tourney on ORAS and i dont see the point of rushing one season just because one anon is bitching about it.
>>
>>20614655
Huh, I wasn't aware that AN ENTIRE LITERAL SEASON of time is "Rushing"
>>
>>20613511
>>20613480
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA YA DID IT OCT
>>
>>20614562
As of right now, there are 47 challengers listed in the document, last season there were closer to 75. That's a significant drop, and the whole concept of the tournaments is to determine the leaders for the challenge; the challenge is the main attraction here, not the tourney.

Side events make main events more popular all of the time, it's called advertising and promoting. If other people get involved with the mini tournaments because it's based around something the generally enjoy, that will then inspire them to stick around for the monotype tournament. You said the people who show up for the mini events 'likely' won't give two shits about the main one, but that's very arguable. It's likely they will, considering it will be run in a similar style, and the threads and contest is enjoyable.


tl;dr - no

the tournament needs to start after ORAS, Einstein. That way the new megas and what not would be included throughout.

the tourney is starting 2 weeks after oras so everybody can have their teams.

Yes. You don't have to battle with the same 3 mons round 2 or 3 against a leader. You're team needs to stay the same in the battle box essentially.

Oh and Rena and anyone else needing Kara, he works afternoons until dead hours, then thread is dead in the morning too. So emailing him would be the best choice if you need to battle him.

Just FYI to people discussing the timeline here between now and ORAS-
No one "owns" the monotype tourneys or gym challenge as a whole (aside from that gym leaders run their gyms).
If someone was so inclined to handle pairings, docs, etc, you're more than welcome to run another season's mono tourney between now and ORAS.
Just keep in mind, there WILL be mini events being run in this thread during this time, the season will need to end upon ORAS release, and you will likely want to make appropriate adjustments to accommodate a relatively smaller crowd (I.E. maybe a single-phase tourney instead of separating type reps for finals, to avoid potentially competitionless (or nearly-so) type rep slots; but this would be your responsibility to sort).


Unrelated- Dragon Gym returns this Friday evening. Get frosty with the Ice Gym before it melts into a beautiful memory.

I suppose using a Sturdy Toxic/Recover stall Magnemite wouldn't really work here.
>>
>>20639111
Why do you think that wouldn't be effective?
>>
>>20639205
Aside from the fact that there's a Steel Gym and a Poison Gym, I'm sure every gym leader has at least one status inflicting mon.
Level 1 Magnemite is my online bro though, I've won so many fucking games with him.
>>
>>20639249
True, but 3v3 can be be good for that since they have to choose who to bring and more than likely the leaders won't have too many mons that are status setters.

There's not much that is a complete write off in these events.
>>
>>20639320
And after I wipe the floor with the first gym leader with it, everyone else will know to pack a status setter for me.

Wat
>>
>>20639343
Potentially, yes. But if they bring mons planning to take the Magnemite down it might weaken their team to your other mons.
>>20639360
Rexxar, please.
>>
>>20639376
The fact that your team is Flying?

>>20639385
It's essentially F.E.A.R. on steroids.
Level One Magnemite, with Sturdy and Berry Juice. Moves are Toxic, Recycle, and Protect.
Step One: On his first turn, he uses Toxic. His sturdy ability lets him take any hit, and his berry juice brings him back to full health.
Step Two: He uses Protect, to stall the Toxic
Step Three: The next turn, he gets hit, hangs on with sturdy, and uses Recycle, which gives him back his berry juice, moving him back to full health.
Step Four: Repeat steps Two and Three.
>>
>>20639437
Lol.
I have 3 different togekiss...i use each in different situations.
>>
>>20639479
The best part about using him is that your opponent never knows what kind it's going to be, and one wrong move will absolutely destroy him.
