Talkhaus Pokemon Gimmick FFA

Postby pholtos » 1 year ago

Hello and welcome to the talkhaus pokemon gimmick free for all. In this place, talkhausers battle it out in different gimmicks thought up by the talkhausers themselves. Each person decides on a gimmick, and anyone challenging that person must abide by the persons chosen gimmick. The "goal" is to face off and beat every other person.

Here is a list of the current people involved and their gimmicks. You are free to join at any point, by adding your name and gimmick onto the list.

Also contained on the sheet to the right of the gimmicks is a place to list people you have completed, to help you keep track if you'd like.

All you would need to do is send a pm to the talkhauser you wish to face and then set about making a team using the gimmick as the rule. Each talkhauser is suggested to make and name a badge focused around their gimmick and also potentially come up with battle music that fits their theme.

Feel free to post replays in the thread if you'd like.

With all that said, let the battles begin!

I am here to express my interest.

Are there any rules on which battle formats are allowed/forbidden? If not, I might focus on that for my gimmick.

I don't think any sort of gimmick would be forbidden unless it's really constricting. (Sorry wrap gimmick. Image)
By which I mean a gimmick that would basically mean only six pokemon could work total... maybe.

So here we are. Plays have been enacted. Empires have come and gone. The mightiest have passed away and withered, alike the least. Fires have burned, thousandfold. Yet, did not the great wind serenely continue its course? Does not the blackbird still sing its song? Does not the mistletoe still dwell in the oak's crown? Forgotten, what once has been told. Veiled, the words that once so rang out. Shrouded, like the larva in its cocoon. Let him hear it, who will.

SIGN ME UP.

This sounds like great fun, and I'm eager to go for some more nonrandom matches here.

I also have a set of stipulations for myself:
-No Pokémon below 6.5 ft. in height.
-Must be in the final 2 tiers of Low Kick damage table. (Above 220 pounds)

That should make my options interesting.... AND HUGE.
I am prone to almost everything... except spontaneous violence.
Any questions, concerns, or aspirations you have with me can go to the PM box... Now here's a quote:

Thinking I might hop in on this. I have a couple of gimmick ideas, but for the time being I think I'll just wait and see what other gimmicks people might claim.

I super enjoyed the Stipulation Stadium before it just kinda stopped so yeah, count me in. Gimme a bit to think of a gimmick tho. Your example tho pholtos kinda confuses me at the end there, so basically the gimmick you choose is what your opponent has to conform to against you, and you have to conform to the gimmick of your opponent?

Basically umm...
I have to face everyone to earn "badges" so I have to face them in their gimmick to get their "badge". So I would make teams that conform to their gimmick when I challenge them.
They in turn use their own gimmick.
So in my case if someone challenged me we'd both do the RNG gimmick.

you gotta be more precise. level 100? can they hold any item? do they need to be un-evolved or just "weak"? (the latter is taken by BK with the sub-400 thing, but there are some un-evolved mons with higher stats)

Here's what I'm considering. I'd like some advice on whether you think it would work as is or whether I should make some modifications.


"Who needs Coverage?"
-The only attacking moves that are allowed on your team's pokémon MUST match their type.
-Moves categorized as "other" may be of any type - they do not need to match the pokémon's type.
-Type-changing moves and abilities are banned. Hidden Power is banned. Mega-Evolutions that change type are banned.

Other potential rules (on which I am undecided):
-Entry Hazards and Defog count as attacking moves (as in any pokémon using them MUST have a matching type).
-Typical OU ruleset.
-No Mega-Evolutions at all.

Ideas I'm not sure I like (on which I still want feedback, in case I decide to add them anyway):
-ALL moves, including "other" moves must match the pokémon's type. You may have (an amount, likely one or two, of) exceptions to this on your team, but the exceptions must be on different pokémon and they must be "other" moves (not including Entry Hazards and Defog, if that rule is also in effect).
-No repeated types on your team.


I'm not sold on this idea as a whole (I have some other ideas in mind), but this is the one I like the most and I'd like some feedback on it if people wouldn't mind providing it.

I think the whole "only moves of your type" idea is pretty neat. :3

Ah okay, I was getting confused for no reason there. Signed up, I'll come up with my gimmick later when I'm more creative. :3

pholtos told me to sign up so I'm gonna sign up :3

I think for my gimmick I'm gonna have "pokemon that aren't part of an evolutionary line". And probably have a banlist so people can't pick the obvious choices (Rotom, Heracross).

Edit: Apparently some of the pokemon I thought were OP aren't actually, so I'm just gonna ban megas and that's it.

I'll sign up too, though I might take a bit to actually think of my gimmick.

Edit* Shadow Mon gimmick should be interesting.
Uh...Do I just sign here? What do you mean it should be obvious? There are people in this world...well...a whole lot of people that can't follow basic instructions!

Well, Dratini and Scyther are Champion-level, Wurmple and Azurill are In-Training-level, and Sunkern is Fresh-level. Unevolved Starters, Pikachu, Metapod, Kakuna, Sunflora, Kirlia, and other Pokemon within that range are Rookie-level.

So what exactly in your book constitutes rookie level? All of those Pokemon are still within my catagory. Digimon level systems aren't applied to Pokemon, so catagorising them like that is a system that exists purely in your opinion. It would make it very hard for a challenger to approach a battle where only one person knows the roster. If you can find a definitive list of which Pokemon classify as "Rookies" then that would be fine, but as it stands, nobody but you knows the roster.

So yeah, what pholtos is saying is that your stipulation is kinda murky in the sense that as it stands, there's no solid foundation for people to understand what it actually is.

I'll join in on this. My gimmick's "The Mooks of Doom." You can only choose Pokemon that the Grunts of each team: Rocket, Magma, Aqua, Plasma, Galactic, and flare. Additionally, you're allowed a maximum of 3 pokemon.

Six pokemon, the first letter of each name must link up with the last letter of the previous pokemon, and the pokemon must be sent out in this order. Additionally, this must apply to the first and last pokemon as well. A good example would be Farfetch'd-Dugtrio-Oddish-Heracross-Shellos-Slurpuff. No ubers, with the exception of megas that are ubers.
So what happens if, say, my team is Eevee, Electivire, Electrike, Electrode, Exeggcute for instance (I know this is only 5, not the point I'm making.) Could I literally bring them out in whatever order I wanted then?
