WELCOME, ONE AND ALL, TO THE TOURNAMENT OF HEARTS!

>Bracket<​

Amidst all the other Marriland Prom-inspired events scattered throughout this season of romance and camaraderie, you find yourself here at one dedicated to the noble art of the Pokémon battle. Don't have any battling experience? Not to worry! This is meant to be a purely casual event, with fun rules in place designed to lighten the mood and level the playing field. Even if you're not taking part in the prom directly, we encourage anyone on the forums to participate, be they prom couples, pairs of friends, or single entrants alike.

How to Join:
Signups are open until February 1st, at which time the bracket will be decided and the fun will get started. To make it easier for everybody to participate in the special theme, we'll be using Pokémon Showdown! for our tournament, rather than playing on cartridge. This simulator doesn't support Multi Battles directly, but it's easy for individual battlers or teams of participants to work together on the same account. You're free to use whichever account you like, as long as it doesn't contain any profanity and you use the same account for the whole event. Then, just post here saying you'd like to join and fill out this simple form:
  • Forum username(s) of participant(s):
  • Name of the Showdown! account you'll be using:
  • Anything else you'd like to add:
Rules of Battle
  • The tournament will be single elimination, with matches played best of 3.
  • In keeping with the romantic theme of this tournament, all Pokémon that you use to build your team must be in the Pink color group. As an added twist to keep things interesting, every Pokémon must have Attract in its set! You can find a list of the allowed Pokémon down below.
  • If it becomes apparent that someone's team doesn't follow the special rules, the first time it will be a warning and the battle in question should be replayed. The second time, it'll count as a loss!
  • For the sake of consistency, please use the Doubles Ubers format on Pokémon Showdown to conduct your matches.
  • It's very important that you save your replay after your battle! You can do this by clicking the "upload and share replay" button that will appear and then copy/pasting the link from the new window in this thread; you should end up with two or three replays for a full best of 3 match. I trust that no one will try to misreport a result intentionally, but it's always good to document things!
  • Please mention "February" somewhere in your signup post so I know you've read through this!

Thank to you everyone who has signed up so far! Once again, I strongly encourage everybody to give the rules a thorough read as you post your application.

In case anybody is still a bit muddled about the shared-account thing: don't worry, it is a bit confusing. This is from a PM I sent that hopefully does a better job explaining things:
You'll be sharing one account for the whole thing, but the trick is that you can both log in at the same time. If I had an account whose name was Pikachu025, and the password was THUNDER, and you and I both knew that, we should be able to both log into that account from different locations.

Now, the reason I've chosen to do it this way, instead of having one person control and the other spectate, is so that both people in a couple can see the data for your Pokemon in battle, like their moves and stats. Otherwise it would be hidden from one person. Just make sure, during the battle, that you coordinate who will actually be pushing the buttons once you've made your decision. I honestly don't know what would happen if two people tried to input different commands. Probably whoever had the faster Internet would win out.
