So I'm pondering switching from the gimmick I randomly switched to back to little cup.

Yeah, I don't know. On the one hand, random is a neat idea. But on the other hand, I think Little Cup might be more approachable/suited for this kind of thing.

I'm honestly wondering if I shouldn't change mine also. It kind of spits in the face of competitive battling in a lot of ways and I don't feel like anyone's really feeling it (the irl friends who were supposed to help me test things included...).
If I did change it, I imagine I'd change it to a pseudo gym thing - three mons of the same type and all six mons need an attacking move of that type. But that might be too exploitable in a thing like this too since, beyond the first match, everyone would know my type.

I have switched to a little cup gimmick. I provided two helpful links that can be used when helping setup a team.

(I'm pondering running multiple teams so that you guys can't just run a counter for whatever team I make. :P)

So... the legacy matches of pholtos's old gimmick. Here they are.

Match 1

1-0



Match 2

1-1



Match 3

1-2



For a team with a legendary, I held my own really well. A ton of my tactics relied on the element of surprise, but even in the last game, I managed to pull myself together from a bad start and do some damage. Naturally, the Reshiram, and (shockingly) the Arbok took many little guys down... I enjoyed these matches, though. Looking forward to more crazy things!

I am prone to almost everything... except spontaneous violence.

You had a really well put together team for what you had to deal with, and shows a bit how my old gimmick flops in areas.

I only had two sets of matches in that gimmick, I feel with a bit of polish someone else could use it if they wanted, but for me I feel my calling is the adorable. :3c

I had a thought, it'd be a lot easier to do challenges and stuff if we were all in the same skype group or something. :P

pholtos' quest to go down the line, battle 1: cheez's doubles generation gimmick

Battle one.
Battle two.
Battle three.

and the winner is...

pholtos by a score of 2-1.



All in all a pretty tough match. We both had a fairly balanced team, and that exeggutor of cheez's really kept me guessing. In the end, it was a fun match that got my heart rate going. Good games, cheez. :3

Managed to get out a win on the first one, and the third was insanely close. Once Zephyr caught onto my shenanigans, he closed the gap pretty quick.

I find it funny that both freezes were against the two Whirlipedes. I was thinking about bringing Krokorok instead of Rhyhorn, but the rocky buddy showed me what he could do. Those were close matches, and some really neat moments. Did you know that the Smogon bird Jr is ranked higher than Walrein and Luxray? It's a shocking statement, but it's true. Looking forward to more of these matches, especially now that I'm free of academia for now.

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.

So after witnessing

and experiencing, firsthand,

the stupidity that is Mega Mawile, and in the interest of not over-centralizing the meta of my gimmick, I have decided to disallow Ubers (which basically just means no Mega Mawile and no Shaymin-Sky).

Additionally, I'm going to add two new stipulations to my gimmick:

-Mega-evolutions that meet the height requirement prior to mega evolving, but do not after, will now be legal (i.e. Mega Beedrill and Mega Diancie)
-Floette-Eternal Forme will be (tentatively) legal.

Matches w/ my gimmick will be conducted in Custom Game.

E: Spreadsheet has been updated to more reflect my gimmick more accurately and in further detail.

Yeah, in such a limited stipulation, Mega Mawile has such incredible power. Banning it should be the right move.
Just so you all know, the spreadsheet is now updated with a more detailed walkthrough of my gimmick, as well as the two ways of challenging it.

Continuing my series of challenges is Ivy, with an Extreme Tier Shift battle, showing us that tires are still relevant after all.

Match 1

1-0


Match 2

1-1


Match 3

1-2



After the blowout of the first one, the last two were a lot closer. I naturally forget about Noivern's new speed in game 3, which was probably the most chaotic out of all of them. Drain Punch and Bullet Punch from Medicham saved the day there. I had a ton of fun with these. Primal Groudon wasn't something I was expecting to see here...
