    Details on the Wild Card Event
    The four players listed above are the only ones who can compete in the wild card event. There will be two Phases to this Wild Card Event.

    Phase One, Extra Life Event:
    Starting on 9/19 10amPST through 9/23 11:59pm you four may challenge ME to a match vs my Champion Team! You must compete in a best 3-5, and there is no rematch clause. You get one shot at beating me. If you do beat me, you will have an extra life when moving on into Phase Two of the Wild Card Event. All Rules from the event still apply.

    Phase Two, Wild Card Elimination Matches:
    After 9/23, I will be randomly pairing the four of you into pairs in which you will face off in a best 2-3 match. If you loose, you are out of the running for making it to the final event. The two winners will face each other in a best 3-5 match, and the winner of that match will move on to face with the Victors in the final Showdown Throwdown! If you have an extra life, you must still post the results of the battle and declare who is using their extra life. Every single match must be shared no matter what. Failure to do so may have you disqualified from proceeding forward. If a player makes it to the winner's bracket and have an extra life, they may use it if defeated in that matchup, but it will not carry over to the main event.

    An Idea came to mind... "What if we set up a pokemon event for all the Pokemon lovers out there where you had to run a gauntlet of battles, going against different Iwaku members who were the Gym Leaders, and Finally the Elite Four and Champion!"

    What this would be:

    Iwaku members signing up to be Gym Leaders following the same rules as they do, picking a type and using pokemon of that type.
    Iwaku members signing up to be an Elite Four Member following the same rule as they do, picking a type and using pokemon of that type.
    Iwaku members signing up to be the Champion, making a balanced team to challenge the players.

    As players:
    Players who can complete all 13 battles will be put into a Pokemon Tournament, organized by me, to compete for a grand prize that I would decide on closer to the actual tournament itself. The first 8 players to complete the event would be entered into the tournament, and the victor would walk away with the prize and bragging rights of being Iwaku's champion!!

    Rules About your TEAM
    1. Players cannot have two Pokémon with the same Pokédex number on the same team.
    2. Players cannot have two Items that are the same on on their team
    3. Players cannot use banned Pokemon (List found below).
    4. Players may only use ONE Pokemon from the Restricted List (List found below). That means that if you have Mega-Lucario, you may not use any other pokemon from the restricted list.
    5. Teams are LOCKED and Cannot be changed once Submitted
      5a. Meaning you pick 6 pokemon, and that is who you battle all gym leaders with, and who you will submit for the pokemon tournament at the end. Switching a Pokemon from your team Requires you to start the challenge all over again starting with the first Gym Leader.
    6. Pokemon Base Stat Totals May NOT Exceed: 3,600
      1. *Meaning of this rule is that the total of your Base Stats of all 6 of your Pokemon cannot exceed the 3,600 Limit. (See Below for more)
    7. A Pokemon may not have either Double Team or Minimize in its moveset.
    8. A Pokemon may not have the moves Fissure, Guillotine, Horn Drill, or Sheer Cold in its moveset.
    9. A team cannot have a Pokemon with the ability Moody.
    10. Players cannot use any moveset on any Pokémon capable of intentionally causing an endless battle.
    11. Players cannot use the move Swagger.
    12. Players can only have the move Barton Pass on one Pokemon's move set.
    13. Players can only put one Pokemon asleep at a time. This is an Uber Tier rule. If you try to put a Pokemon to sleep and there is already one asleep on their team, the second Pokemon will instantly wake up. This is less of a rule and a notice so players are aware of it.

    Tournament Specific Rules!
    Rematch Policy
    A Trainer may request a rematch after a loss with a Gym Leader/Elite Four Member. They will then have to complete a best 2-3 match against the Gym/E4 in order to advance. If they loose this bout, they may not challenge the Gym Leader again for 24 hours.

    Concede Policy
    A Trainer may Concede their team from the tournament at any time. If they feel they need to remake their team, or they feel they are unable to participate in the event anymore, they may concede. When you Concede your team, you may remake your team and start the event from Gym 1 and work through the battles all over again! A trainer must resubmit their new team again in order to participate, and it must be approved by F0X before a battle can be requested.

    Order Policy
    The order that Trainers must complete the Gyms are as listed above starting with Gym 1 and going in numerical order until you reach the Champion. After completing each Gym, you will submit your video as proof of your victory tagging @F0X so that I can see it. Once I have verified your victory, I will award you an image courtesy of @WhisperingWillows of a badge case with your badges in it! There will be a different image for each gym completed, and you may put it in your Signature to show off your awesome badges if you'd like! Once you've collected all the badges and defeated the Champion, you will be entered into the final tournament. Only the first 8 players to complete the event will be entered into the tournament.

    Cheating Policy
    If any Trainer is caught cheating due to breaking one of the listed rules above, you will have to start the event from the beginning of the entire event. If caught cheating a second time, you will be disqualified completely and put on a black list. I certainly hope this doesn't have to happen. If Gym Leaders or Elite Four Members are EVER caught cheating, they must step down from their position and another member who is on a reserve list may take that spot. After a 1 Week Probation Period, that member may enter the tournament as a Trainer, but the same rules apply for cheating a second time.

    Rules about the Tournament are still TBT, but they shall be posted as soon as they are finalized.

    -----------------------

    F.A.Q.
    Q. Do I have to battle the Gym Leaders in the order listed above?
    A. Yes, you must. The only exception to this is if the Gym Leader says that they are going to be out of town for more than a few days (Like a week) and they have contacted me about it. I will make an announcement on the thread and make a note in their Gym Profile.


    Q. Can I make changes to moves after I enter the event?
    A. No. Nothing, and I mean 0%, can be changed about your team once you start the event. You may use the Concede Policy at any time, and once your team has been submitted and reviewed by me, you may start the event again.


    Q. What if I have some sort of Internet Issue with Showdown? Does that mean I have to do a 2/3 match even though I didn't get to compete fully?
    A. The Gym Leader in this case MUST submit the video and support the claim that they disconnected. DC's can happen, but if there is suspicion that a forced DC happened after "scouting" out the gym, that will count as a loss. To prevent this, in the case of a DC into Rematch, both Gym Leader and Trainer MUST enter battle with the same pokemon that they did the first time.


    Q. What if I accidentally enter with one of my other teams by mistake?
    A. I HIGHLY recommend you naming your team something that stands out so that this doesn't happen. If the Gym Leader sees you have a team that you didn't submit with, that is in line for instant DQ and restart. However, honest mistakes happen. Again in this case, the video from showdown must be submitted, and until I give the green light.


    Q. So for the rematch policy does the initial loss count?
    A. No it does not. It is a clean slate best 2/3 match. So, if you lost your best of 1, you get to battle a best 2/3 starting with a 0-0 record. If you loose that as well, you cannot issue another rematch for 24 hours.

    Details on the Wild Card Event
    The four players listed above are the only ones who can compete in the wild card event. There will be two Phases to this Wild Card Event.

    Phase One, Extra Life Event:
    Starting on 9/19 10amPST through 9/23 11:59pm you four may challenge ME to a match vs my Champion Team! You must compete in a best 3-5, and there is no rematch clause. You get one shot at beating me. If you do beat me, you will have an extra life when moving on into Phase Two of the Wild Card Event. All Rules from the event still apply.

    Phase Two, Wild Card Elimination Matches:
    After 9/23, I will be randomly pairing the four of you into pairs in which you will face off in a best 2-3 match. If you loose, you are out of the running for making it to the final event. The two winners will face each other in a best 3-5 match, and the winner of that match will move on to face with the Victors in the final Showdown Throwdown! If you have an extra life, you must still post the results of the battle and declare who is using their extra life. Every single match must be shared no matter what. Failure to do so may have you disqualified from proceeding forward. If a player makes it to the winner's bracket and have an extra life, they may use it if defeated in that matchup, but it will not carry over to the main event.

    WELCOME TO THE IWAKU GRAND FINALS!!!!
    Must click this link while you read!!!
    The Contestants!!
    1. @Maxim
    2. @LimeyPanda
    3. @Ixidor92
    4. @Snoopy

    The RULES:
    1. This will be a Double Elimination format Tournament. If you have never seen or competed in a Double Elimination Tournament, you will see what it looks like when I post the bracket. (Since I am nice, THIS is what it will look like)
    2. The Matches will be best 2/3 Matches, except the Finals, which will be best 3/5. All Rules to the Normal Event Still Apply.
    3. BOTH Players ARE REQUIRED to save the replays. The WINNER IS REQUIRED to post the results in the thread.
    4. This is a pseudo rule... But players SHOULD try to tag me or get my attention if able or one of the E4 members like @Sen @Mahariel @Opal or @Moonlit Blade so that we can watch and be another set of eyes on the fight! We WANT to watch, but having someone there to make sure things go right is good too!
    5. Another pseudo rule... Players should try to coordinate their battles AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, but also don't rush a player into battling. I am not putting a strict time limit on the finals, but if a player does hold up the event for too long, or is unable to compete for whatever reason, I may have to consider DQing them from the event. PLEASE DON'T MAKE ME DO THIS!!!

    Now... The reason why you're all here... (I hope not but I did hear a lot of begging to know!! >.<)

    The Prize Support:
    Unfortunately, we only got a total of 4 people for this final event, so ONLY the Finalist will be getting a prize. The prize is one of the following:
    Option 1: An Art Piece from the lovely @Mahariel with your personal persona/pokemon! I don't think Mahariel is going to be able to do the FULL 6 Pokemon, but the finalist can put in their request, and Mahariel can work with them on the final piece. However, if art isn't the finalist's cup of tea, there is one other option for a reward...

    Option 2: A Perfect, Non-Legendary Pokemon for their Pokemon X/Y or OR/AS 3ds game! What this means is you will request a Non-Legendary Pokemon, specify what you want, and you'll get it! Meaning if it can be played in Showdown, it can be done! I cannot accept requests for Shiny Pokemon, but Perfect means: 6 Perfect IV's, Desired Nature, Desired Gender, Desired Ability, Desired Moveset, and Desired EV Spread.


    And there you have it!! The finals are now open!! Let the Battles Commence! Good luck to everyone, and congratulations for making it this far. I look forward to watching all of your battles to come!!

  2. Okay, interesting. So I can go back to Dragon typing and use my original team. Do we have base stat limits again?

    Also @Opal FUCK YOUR MEGA SABLEYE AND ITS INSANE DEFENSE/MAGIC BOUNCE! Such a good Pokemon, haha.
     
  3. Give me some time, the rules and such are still being constructed, and there is going to be a banned/restricted list that will be hopefully an interesting element for everyone. There will be bast stat limits, just give me a bit of time.
     
  4. We're Open for business!!
     
  5. @F0X can I be the 8th gym leader with flying Pokemon?
     
  6. Yes! I will put you down!
     
  7. I'll send you a draft tonight.
     
    • Like Like x 1
  8. I would be interested in this. Can we build a team and be a gym leader? I think it would be cool to be a gym leader but it could mean I don't get to post often. I would love to build a group of trainers that travel together growing as they battle each gym. I think that would allow a lot of character growth. But if this is just a battle thing I wouldn't want to be a trainer. Also what exactly is the a showdown nickname?
     
  9. Pokemon Showdown is a pokemon battle simulator that is free for anyone to use. This is currently a battling thing, but I have plans to possible make it a role playing event if there are enough interest for it. However, for now the main focus is on battling in game to show your skills as a pokemon master!
     
  10. @F0X

    Do we give these Pokemon perfect IVs? And EVs of our choice?
     
    • You Get a Cookie You Get a Cookie x 1
  11. I'll go ahead and reserve Gym, Ice-type. I'll get up a team someday.
     
  12. Yep! Level 100, Max IV, EV's where you want.
     
  13. Okay! I'll put you down, though don't take too long!
     
  14. Well, this is definitely up my lane. I wanna reserve a Gym Leader, Fighting type!
     
  15. @F0X

    Thinking of entering. Mayyyybe.

    Probably.

    More than likely.

    Okay. I'll probably get a team.

    Or something.
     
  16. AAA I would absolutely love to participate in this but pffftfffbttbtttt noPe
     
  17. The choice between being a trainer and being a gym leader is tough!
     
  18. I'd love to join as a ghost type gym leader but I'm not sure how to post my team like that.
     
  19. I'll be the Fire Gym Leader.
