    Default Would you take part in a "raise and fight" Pokemon Tournament?

    Asking now, because this kind of tournament takes lots of preparation.

    What is a "raise and fight" tournament, you ask?

    The rules are quite simple! Each contestant receives six random Pokemon eggs (courtesy of our breeder - Skyblade) that they later get a limited amount of time to raise. Once the time elapses, we battle it out in a regular tournament, using only the Pokemon we hatched!

    To take part you need a copy of Pokemon X/Y or Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire. You get to keep any of the Pokemon you receive. Due to the time it takes to breed enough Pokemon (and the fact that I am way too busy right now), the tournament proper will take place no sooner than July. This poll is mostly to determine how many Pokemon Skyblade will need to breed.

    The main idea behind this is that there's a huge discrepancy between casual and hardcore gamers when it comes to such tournaments. With such criteria, everyone is on very similar footing, so we can all enjoy Pokemon battles relatively equally!

    So, to those who vote - do you have any preferences to the generations of Pokemon you want in the tournament? Do you have some Pokemon that you DEFINITELY want (or don't want) to appear? Or do you want it to be completely random?

    That'd be cool if I had the games!

    I would love to do this; unfortunately, I have neither a 3DS nor the games listed.

    I've never fought anyone at Pokemon via PVP so I'll probably suck big fat hairy balls. I suppose I could just spend all my waking hours training them up to level 100 but that isn't high on my list of priorities right now. Expect me/us to be the receiver of the wooden spoon.

    Easy there, no rush I'm sure you'll find your 3DS by July

    And I'm sure you'll have enough time to raise your Pokemon properly. Once all the preparations are done, we'll settle on a time limit for the training. We'll also have two more threads - one dedicated to the raising period where we can share our experiences if we so choose, and one for the tournament stage.

    Also, anyone have any requests yet? Any Pokemon you specifically want or don't want? Make sure to say why Also, legendaries are out of the question by default since they can't breed.

    I think any and all Pokemon should be fair game, but it'd be really interesting if Skyblade made sure that there were no duplicates. And then obviously randomly mix up the eggs (or maybe use a number generator) and give them out.

    I think as to choosing which Pokemon should be in it, just use a hat picker online. So oh, it pulled out #1 of #649, so throw a Bulbasaur egg in the mix. That way to make it truly random and exciting.

    We've actually talked about not having duplicates, but I just thought that there is one Pokemon that makes sense if there are duplicates - Eevee, considering the choices you get when evolving it. But otherwise - yeah, no duplicates.

    When it comes to distributing the eggs, he'll send them over to me first, and I'll distribute them, so there is no chance of any bias - no one knows which eggs are which once they're on my box.

    While complete randomization is an interesting idea, and while I know Skyblade has access to a lot of Pokemon, Im not sure if he's capable of breeding all of them.

    I don't know what he has! I guess he could keep picking until he came upon a number he had though.

    And yeah, obviously Eevee is an exception based on its evolutions.
