It's time again for the biggest auction of the year. Tuesday, the first of August, 5 PM EST time, on AIM. It's 11 PM for people in Holland like me, which is GMT +2, so that makes it 10 PM for the UK. I'm afraid everybody else will have to figure it out themselves, I'm too tired to do it now and it will be no problem with google or by just asking around. There will be lots of cool Pokemon, probably 10 in all, with one or two rare ones as well. Obviously, none that are in the mart. If we get a lot of people we might do even more, but that's of later concern. Just make sure you'll be there.

Ok, this is what who got for what prize:

Slakoth - PF2k $31k
Slowpoke - D $35k
Lunatone + Solrock - Chris $38k
Absol - JT $28k
Alakazam - Chase $31k
Lotad - Barkley $25k
Miltank - Pidge $26.5k
Seviper - ER $20k
Magnemite - Yami $18k
Marowak - Hif $25k
Tentacool - Lan $15k
Houndoom - Big Boss $27k
Swablu - Fenix $20.5k
Tropius - Tristan $20k
Hypno - Miravana $13k
Shroomish - Mike $53k

Makuhita- Robert $3k
Medicham- DU $11k
Rapidash- Miravana $1k
Porygon- Chase $8k
Crawdaunt- Loyal Arcanine $1k
Primeape- DU $4k

Hey, I'm looking for someone to bid for me with my money at this auction.

Basically, I'll make a short list of Pokemon which I already own that I do NOT want you to bid on for me at this auction. Other than that, you bid up to my maximum cash on EVERY mon (minus mystery ones) offerred, no matter how good or sucky. Easy enough, especially if you aren't planning on bidding yourself but just coming to watch. Even if you aren't gaining anything from it, you could at least be involved with the auction.

IM me if you could do this for me. x_x I'd be very grateful.

Ok, it was a big chaos with a lot more people than I expected so a lot more mons too. Who got what is in the first post of this thread. And yes, the record was broken: Husnain made a bid of $84k for Porygon.

Checked with Mike, it's totally legal.

Checked with Mike, it's totally legal.

Last I checked, Explosion battles for cash are completely illegal, and that's where you got 40 of your battles.

Trust me, I'd know. They got banned because I did like a x10 of explosions once TO EVOLVE A POKEMON, and all Hell broke loose. It's in the rules, last time I checked. :P

Besides, massive abuse of multi-battles with the same two Pokemon (unless it is for evolves) is also illegal. Someone did a x100 like that before, and they had to delete the log due to it not being legit.

However, if your battles are to be counted, I'd have to say times have changed. Multi's/OHKOs for evos are almost necessary, but if it's just for cash, it USED to be banned.

MystiKal
08-02-2006, 03:19 AM
Yeah I agree with D here. I mean I remember when we couldn't use Explode for easy money, and when we did we were punished harshly. I think the rules should be changed around a bit, I don't mind seeing diffrent Pokemon being used for the battles but using the same two Pokemon just to get easy cash is just wrong.

It goes on ... you have GOT to be kidding me.

Those three should have the Pokemon they won taken away from them. It's obvious they're inconsiderate of anyone else besides them being able to win anything.

Disgusting.

First of all, I'm warning CB. No more extreme OHKO's or you get your reffing license taken away. I'm pretty sure the other two have gotten there warnings.

Second of all, *Un-Stickied*

Ok, we did the other mons as well. We were having fun so I added in two. At least it was old fashioned, so that you didn't have to have $30k to get anything. But with so few people the mons were not always wanted, so two fo them went for $1k.
