Hey /vp/, we're thinking about hosting a synchronized Pokemon X Y playthrough. It's just for fun, nothing super competive. All information should be in the OP image. Feel free to as any questions and share your thoughts.
Currently only Neo XY which is kinda not a great hack. The best difficulty hacks are for ORAS where I would recommend either Meme Sapphire or Rutile Ruby/Star Sapphire. To read up more on Gen VI romhacks check out /hbg/'s pastebin:
You can use any mon you would like to as long as it's caught in your game and isn't a giftmon outside of one of the 6 starters, but the starters themselves aren't a requirement if you would like to box the ones you do choose.
We just want to encourage people to use mons they may have never tried using before since there's such a huge amount that can be caught in XY, which is the same reason why legendaries aren't allowed and megas are going to be saved for the final tourney because of the amount of postgame exclusive ones.
It doesn't; Amie should be allowed and a new OP made to reflect the changes & the fact that people are actually doing this. As-is you've got an erroneous and not very inclusive OP with a "maybe we'll do this" attitude, rather than a "HAPPENING, all aboard!" attitude.
Super Training should be allowed as well because who the fuck cares? The time investment/stat payoff of supertraining isn't gonna matter for shit on a synced playthrough. Plus it'll give folks something to do when they've reached the current checkpoint.
I think I'll be participating. FC is 1521-6611-6498. My name will be Aubrey in game.
When will this officially start? And when will tournaments be held?
Will it be like the /vp/ leagues or...?
Also, what do you think about some optional rules like being able to trade a pokemon with another player every gym badge or so, or if two players battle, the winner can trade one of his mons for one of the losers (his pick of choice)?
Probably didn't word that too well but you should get the gist. Just an idea spice things up if interested
not what I meant faggot. OP's entire post is gonna entice literally nobody to join in
Aren't badges enough of a requirement? Hold the tournaments every couple days and have a badge requirement to participate. So first tourney is 1 and under, second is 2 and under, etc. This way people who discover the project a few days in can jump in, compete immediately, and have more incentive to grind up and catch up.
if someone really wants to spend 900000 hours to beat me in a /vp/ group tournament battle then that's up to them. Even so, what's grinding gonna get them? A new move? Some EVs? It's a lotta work for no payoff in a "for fun" tournament. This can be covered under a "don't be a faggot" rule. Can you even see native levels in a link battle when they're all set to 50 anyway?
This is my point. The thread/OP is so wishy-washy that bright folks like this don't even know that some kids are having for fun battles RIGHT NOW in the skype group. People don't even know that you can start RIGHT NOW and all you have to do is beat the 1st gym by the Feb 1st deadline. (and also meet the meaninless level + Pokemon requirements in OP's image)
>The pacing of XY just goes into maximum overdrive directly after the 3rd gym
It's so tragic because it just sets you up for disappointment thinking that the entire game would be like 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd.
>OP's entire post is gonna entice literally nobody to join in
Okay, besides me having about 20 people in so far, which is more than enough.
We just want it to be a fair as possible because there will be people who abuse the system. You dont have to participate.
Sorry for being so harsh, I know you put time into this and it is panning out alright, all things considered. I am interested, which is why I'm judging so harshly.
I just think it could be better, more refined. A new thread/OP might be good to clarify some things and change this thread's confusion to enthusiasm.
Here's a simplified ruleslist, thoughts?
>1. Don't be a faggot
>2. No Legendaries
>3. No Megas until final round
>4. No breeding, bank, injection etc.
>5. Trading only allowed among other /vp/ group players
>6. If you go over badge limit, skip that round
>?7. Sleep clause and item clause for tournaments
Item clause definitely doesn't need to be there, and sleep clause is debatable. It's not like Breloom is even in the regional dex, and Butterfree isn't broken or anything.
Totally misunderstood this as a single player thing. It makes sense with multiplayer for all the whiny people who don't know how to play. Why no swagger clause, baton pass clause or evasion clause? LOL
But do you honestly expect someone to level their mon up to ~49 for a round 1 tournament? Mind you they'd still need to have 1 badge to participate so that means grinding against first/second route shitmons just to get an edge on your opponent. I don't think there are enough hours in the day to make something like that worthwhile or even possible.
>put an entire team to sleep in 2 turns
If you choose to switch out AND they double up on their sleep move. I see how sleep can be problematic, but I don't see it being ubiquitous enough to warrant a ban. I think you're underestimating peoples' willingness to have fun. Are there even prizes in this tourney?
I also think casual non-tournament battles among participants will be much more commonplace than the tournament itself anyway.
If someone want to be overleveled for the gym leader, that's up to them. When we're all set to 50 for link battles, EVs, moves and evolutions will have waning importance as the game progresses
Fair point. I just feel that the level cap rules will hurt more than it helps. I'd rather get rolled by some faggot's Lucario than not play at all because I accidentally leveled too high.
accept our curbstomp like the little bitches we are
i guess we could super train back if try hard fags really want to be the "no fun allowed" types. it all really lies in goodwill of the other players though.
>don't come to /vp/
A reason to have fun again. I am all for it. Though plz no super training. I want to have fun and not toil ceaselessly trying to make sure all my natures are perfect and shit.
!REMINDER TO EVERYONE PARTICIPATING BUT NOT IN THE SKYPE!
double check the pastebin to make sure your added and remember to add everyone in the pastebin to your friends so when the tournament comes round the battles can be quick
