To register for the league, players must post in this thread with the following info:
-Team Name - This is like a sports team name. Players can select a city or town from the Pokémon games and choose a team nickname. Example: Pallet Powerhouses. Players can choose to include or exclude the word City of Town from team name. Offensive names will not be allowed.
-Team Roster (Due 12/6) - 10 Pokémon to be used on the team
-Home Field Format (Due 12/6) - What format player wishes to use for home games (single, double, triple, or rotation)
-Team Roster (Due 2 days before start of the league): Players will be allowed 10 Pokémon on their roster to choose from for each match. All rosters will be posted on the website.
-Players will select their home field battle format (Single, Double, Triple, or Rotation) prior to the start of the season.
-Each player will have one match per week. (This can be changed to a week to get a match in once every match from the previous week is done. This is up to you guys.)
-Players will be responsible for coordinating a time to play with their opponents. It is suggested to use the forum's private messaging for this in order to not clutter the thread up.
-Matches will be conducted over Wi-Fi on Generation V games.
-Matches will be 6 vs. 6 Level 100 "No Restriction" Battles. The home team's format will dictate the type of battle.
-Matches will be best 2 out of 3 battles.
-Players may substitute Pokémon in their lineup between battles in a match, provided that the substitutes are listed on the player's roster and follow lineup restrictions.
-Both players will be responsible for reporting the result of the match in this thread to make the result official.
At the conclusion of the regular season, an 8-team single-elimination playoff will be held to determine the champion. The top 4 players from each conference will advance to the playoffs.
-A player's team may not have more than one Pokémon with the same National Pokédex number.
-No two Pokémon on a player's team may hold the same Item.
-The move Sky Drop is banned.
-The item Soul Dew is banned.
-A player is not allowed to put more than one opposing Pokémon to sleep using a move that induces the sleep status. (Known as the Sleep Clause in most circles.)
-A player who uses a Pokémon that is not listed on his/her team's roster will result in forfeiture of the match.
-Pokémon deemed to be illegal (moveset or stats) will result in forfeiture of the match, and possible removal from the league.
-If both players' final Pokémon faint on the same turn, the match is determined to be a draw. The exception to this rule will be in the playoffs, where the match will go to a sudden death, first player to knock out an opponent's Pokémon wins.
In the event of a tie in the standings at the end of the regular season, places will be determined by the following, in this order:
1. Head-to-head record
2. Conference record
3. Total number of battles won
If a tie hasn't been broken by this point, the following will be used depending on the situation:
4. If both teams are guaranteed playoff spots, a coin toss will determine seeding.
4. If the breaking of tie will eliminate a team, a one battle playoff will be held to determine who advances.
The following Pokémon are not allowed on a player's team:
Players are allowed ONE from the list of the following Pokémon in their active lineup:
ION Organized Play Proposal - The ION Pokémon League (Left in thread for informational and future usage purposes)
I've been kicking around several ideas for an organized Pokémon league format that I'd like to try and get going. When I say league, I'm not talking about the format in the game's story with gym leaders and the like. I'm referring to a sports league-type format. Here's a general description of each idea and people can give their thoughts on each one.
-Single League Format: This is the easiest one. I design a schedule and we play through the schedule leading to the playoffs. The only restrictions on these will be a list of certain Pokémon, likely to resemble the official competition one, but there is room to adjust that.
-Team League Format: Similar to the single league, but this one involves players teaming together to form teams. First thought would be teams of 3, but there is room to discuss the specifics.
-Draft League Format: This one I think could be really interesting. The league would conduct the Pokémon equivalent of a fantasy draft. Each player would take turns selecting a Pokémon for their team until each person's roster is filled out. The catch to this format is that each Pokémon can only be on one team. For example, if Jimmy picks Venusaur, no one else will be able to. I think this could be a really interesting way to do something different. There would be a chance to trade the rights to use a certain Pokémon with other players, or release the rights and pick up a "free agent", so to speak.
Those are my initial format thoughts. If any of this interests anyone, and it is possible to run more than one format as separate leagues, post your thoughts. Once there is enough interest, we'll hammer out the details and work on getting it up and running.
