Read those rules to get a basic understanding of the game, new rules may be added towards the start of the contest.

8 Users from last season have recieved a free invitation into season 3, the remaining 8 spots are all first come first serve. Once the remaining spots are filled, there will be a waiting list in case one of the 8 invited users choose not to play.

What does it mean to lose all meaning? That's not a goth thing, it just sounds like something that would make a robot explode.

Are you going to be a better host this time? Dont get this all mixed in with tdv again, that was a disaster.

Mistakes you made last time are that you made rules on the fly and there was a lot of misunderstanding among contestants. You cant just decide to change the rules midway through the game in some post that can easily get lost. Having a separate thread for updates is something I highly recommend. Make sure everyone is completely aware of everything before things get changed. Also, be more active and involved in the tournament yourself, and dont have a power struggle between yourself and the staff members.

Grinding for levels is something that has to be made extremely clear immediately. Remember not to be vague on the rules, but also be open to adjusting the rules (before the tournament starts) if they make more sense than the ones that exist. Also, dont power trip, the best way to avoid this is by inserting a voting system.

Be clear regarding HMs/TMs. I think buying pokemon for Viz is a dangerous idea and should be removed. Also, all pokemon should grow at the same rate, so that it is fair.

If you can manage all of that, then I will sign up, and I will be Squirtle, because squirrels and turtles are awesome.

Cool, we have 6 people so far, just 10 more to go before sign ups close. For this season, there will be 4 rounds, each one lasting at least 2 weeks and during each round, one player will face off agaisnt another for points. AT the end of each round, the person who has the most points of the two will move onto the next round.

Once we get another 2 to 3 people to sign up, then I will make profiles for the first set of people.

I'll take a Froakie.

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

Froakie: It's time for my debut! Hello, everyone!

Davien : Who are you talking to?

Froakie: Just the voices inside my head.

Davien : ...Anyway, look here. Cuide. This is the tombstone of your senior, Feathe--something. Pay your respect.

Froakie: *Stare at the ground* I hope you're doing well wherever your spirit may be. Although we never met, I feel a strong bond connecting us. I'll be sure to make you proud, senior! But I'm still inexperienced. I sincerely hope you'll guide me from above—or underground. Whichever you prefer—personally I'm fine with either. Hmm. This stone's markings look recent.

Davien : Of course it does. It was decided that this spot would be that thing's grave earlier today. Luckily, I had a magic marker handy.

Froakie: Oh... Senior was buried today?

Davien : No. This is just a tombstone—for now. The actual body has not been acquired.

Froakie: (Oh! Something horrible must have happened to Senior! Something that prevented his body from being retrieved! Actually, is senior a male or female? Whatever! Regardless of your gender, I'll search throughout the world for your remains and give you a proper burial! Senior, you can count on me!)

Davien : We are departing.

Froakie: Yes, Sir!

Narrator: Now begins our tragic tale of love, betrayal, and battle against the unseen demons! Stay tuned for the next episode of our heroes' thrilling adventure!





Davien : Great... I'm hearing a voice now, too.

bobq : It wouldn't be fair either to the ones who put so much effort into making it to the very end if they had to start over. The only thing that's going to happen is they get further through the region quicker, and all the points are reset for them also.

zanderlex :

  You claims it does not matter if their points are "reset." That is not how I see it. With lv




30ish pokemons, they will rolfstomp the first few gyms plus everyone else,




and consequently build their points back in no time. Lv 5 vs Lv 30, the math clearly doesn't seems fair to me. I would be shocked if you actually manage to fill up the slots with 8 new participants.

Besides, points are determined from the following:

1. Post length.

2. Number of Pokemon.

3. Pokemon Level.

4. Amount of in game money. 1000 Dollars = 1 point.

5. Amount of items. 5 Items = 1 point.

6. Successful attacks.

7. Badges.

(Source: the rules you posted.)

Now look at this. (I'm using DisneyGamer as an example.)

2. DisneyGamer
Eevee LV 29 Tackle Tail Whip Sand Attack Helping Hand 45, 39, 34.
Sandslash LV 30. 34, 29, 36. Tackle.
Lv 31 Growlithe 41, 51, 34 Tackle.
34600 Dollars. 5 Poke Balls. 4 Potions. 3 Great Balls.

   Barring "Post Length", "Sucessful attacks", and "Badges", this player basically have the same number of points as she did at the end of last season. As I mentioned before, with Lv 30 pokemons, the badges she won will be relatively easily regained and regarding Lv 30ish pokemon vs lv 5. I see plenty of "Successful attacks" happening, especially against other people's Lv5s. Actually, what the heck is a "Sucessful Attack." Define "Successful", what does it mean in this case? Does a "Success Attack" occur when a pokemon manage to damage another pokemon? If so, then a Unsuccessful Attack should be able to occur, however I do not recall any Pokemon from last season dodging/avoiding attacks from the 91 pages of posts I read before quitting. Well, beside from the players that believe their pokemon are ninjas, in other words, there were no official ruling on the matter. That explanation is out. Then, is it when a pokemon lands the knockout blow? If so, why is that not specified? I hope the new additions to the rules are not as vague as this.

   To sum things up, what I am trying to say here is that this "reset" did not do squat. It is a waste of time trying to compete with these disadvantages that you claim are "fair." Are you messing with us? Here is another question: will this season be as frustrating as the last? As of now, this seems highly probable to me.

I agree with Davien : , we should get the pokemon we had and our items, but our pokemon levels should reset. But keep the moves and evolutions we had, like I would have an Umbreon with Faint Attack and Confuse Ray but his level would return to level 5. And I'm saying this as a person that paid to get his pokemon back. Also, will the prices return to the starting price?
