Get ready for a new tournaments with twists and turns that will really have you testing your abilities as a strategist and a trainer.

This is the first, and hopefully not last, URPG Monotype Challenge.

16 people will enter this tournament, and it is first come, first serve.

You will rent three Pokemon of the same type (they may be mixed, such as psychic/grass or something). The pokemon chosen may be fully evolved, but may not be legendary. These three Pokemon will remain with you for the remainder of the tournament, so choose wisely. You may use any Pokemon that you already own, but it cannot be the same one. For example, if I have a Flygon, I can rent a Flygon, I just can't use the one I own. You may, however, buy or use one TM, HM, or Hold Item for the tournament Pokemon.

There will be a roster, which I will be posting once all of the sixteen contestants are signed up. The battles will be chosen at random, so there will be no intentional unfair pairing. There will be 8 people on each side, and it will be followed in a championship style, until the tournament comes down to the final two.

Each battle will be 3v3, but the rest of the rules are determined by the battlers. All battles will occur on AIM or a different messenger, so if you're only a forum battler, I'm sorry, you can't enter.

The champion will recieve $20,000 in URPG money, and will be allowed to keep one of the Pokemon that they used in the tournament, as well as the TM/item. This is your chance to get some hard-to-get Pokemon! The runner-up will recieve $20,000 in URPG money.

I would love to join this as well, but don't you think we should PM our Pokemon? People who sign up later have a HUGE advantage; the ability to metagame against other players. Seems unfair to me.

Edit: I have to go study and I don't want to miss this tournament, so I'll just give in...

Wow, thanks for updating it Tamer, saved me some trouble. To answer some questions: You get the TMs and hold items at the mart of course, but you only get to keep the ones that are on the mon that you keep if you win, otherwise, they get tossed along with the rental Pokemon. So it's really your choice if you want to use TMs, because it may waste money, but it may also help win battles.

I think what mana meant was that it is the same gender and ability as the one he already owns. I assure you the one he is using has no TMs or Hold items on it yet, right mana?

Sure Pidge, you can be first alternate.

I should've done this much earlier.

Due to the fact that my main computer crashed and my AIM has been weird, I'll have to drop out of the tournament. I also have to apologize to Espeon Rinage, because I've had to make him wait. :dazed:

I don't think D2 would appreciate a forum battle being done. :ermm: The laptop I'm using right now has some weird block against messengers, so that's not really an option. When I have a better computer, then I'll be sure to enter other tournaments. :)

Go ahead and do a forum battle. It's obviously faster than trying to find another solution. Just find a ref that will keep up the pace.
