A special weekly event!
We are pleased to announce a specially held weekly event - A Little Cup Arena Tournament, hosted by the staff team and one of our fellow community members: Poochy!
This will be held this weekend, Saturday the 17th of September - 5PM GMT/12PM EST. This will be the event for this weekend, so there will be NO event on Sunday.
- Like the title says, this tournament is Little Cup only, meaning you may only bring Pokemon at its LOWEST STAGE.
- The tournament takes place at the Winden Arena. No items, set level 50. (A warp going to the Winden Arena may be placed to enable newer players to participate as well.)
- 2 Pokemon only.
- Banned moves are as follows:
*Any AoEs that have a range greater than two tiles
*Status inflicting moves (Unless said move only gives statuses as a secondary effect, such as the move Ice Beam) - Burn (Will-o-wisp), Sleep (Spore), Paralysis (Thunder Wave), Infatuation (Attract), Immobilization (Mean Look), Curse, Confusion (Confuse Ray), etc.
*Healing moves such as Roost, Softboiled, Recover, etc. (Draining moves such as Giga Drain, Drain Punch, and Draining Kiss are acceptable.)
*Protecting moves - Protect, Detect, King"s Shield, Quick Guard, Wide Guard, etc.
*Moves with temporary invincibility - Fly, Bounce, Dig, Substitute, etc.
*Stat-boosting moves (With exception to those with a secondary effect, such as Metal Claw or Charge Beam) - Swords Dance, Hone Claws, Belly Drum, Reflect, Light Screen etc.
*Trapping moves such as Bind, Fire Spin, Sand Tomb…
*OHKO Moves - Fissure, Guillotine, Sheer Cold, etc.
*Rebound Attacks - Counter, Metal Burst, Destiny Bond, Mirror Coat, etc.
*Terrain Moves - Grassy, Misty, and Electric Terrain.
*PP Reduction Moves - Spite, Grudge
*Stat Switch moves - Guard Split/Swap, Power Split/Swap, Trick Room, etc.
- Banned abilities are as follows:
*Weather-based abilities (Drizzle, Drought, Snow Warning, etc.) This can technically be allowed, as one of the hosts may use Cloud Nine to remove said weather effects before battle.
*Trapping abilities such as Arena Trap, Shadow Tag, Magnet Pull, Cute Charm, etc.
*Speed Boost and Quick Feet
- Not necessarily a rule, but you are highly encouraged to train before the tournament takes place to be able to utilize desired movesets.
- Pokemon that do not evolve are unallowed. This includes Pokemon such as Heracross, Delibird, Durant, etc.
- Some Pokemon are banned. This includes Pokemon with abilities listed above, as well as Scyther and Meditite
- Should any of these rules be breached, you shall be disqualified from the tournament.
- No timer, but could be changed if the pacing is slow.
- 25 pairs of battlers, split into two halves, single elimination.
- Set level 50.
- Stat Boosts are disabled, so they automatically fail.
- Two tournaments will be taking place at the same time. One at the Winden Arena, and another Arena (both with warps).
