My flatmate would be. And I know several more people who would be (including me!) if it were on something like Pokémon Showdown, etc.

Just a thought haha.

Pokemon Showdown could be fun if enough people were keen.

Im pretty sure VisualBoyAdvance has an online mod at this stage. I have half decent-ish saves on various Pokemon games for that.


I might at some point be getting a 2DS depending on how these Ruby/Sapphire remakes progress.

I'm open to showdown - I just downloaded it now - and you can play by VGC 2014 rules which is what I was going to make for rules anyway.

If we get enough interest, I was planning to do it on a weekend in August if I can get the weekend off work

Also added a "who is interested" in my first post - just for me to track interest ^-^
People live their lives bound by what they accept as correct and true. That's how they define "reality". But what does it mean to be "correct" or "true"? Merely vague concepts ... their "reality" may all be a mirage. Can we consider them to simply be living in their own world, shaped by their beliefs?

So what are the VGC 2014 rules? I haven't done any competitive battling since 4th Gen!

Pokémon must be able to be caught in the Kalos region (banned pokemon are Zygarde, Yveltal, Xerneas, Mewtwo), Pokémon can't have attacks from the move tutor (unless it can be passed on in an egg move e.g. gardevoir can't have hyper voice, but breloom could have drain punch), pokemon are set to level 50, it is double battle format, 2 of the same item can't be held (example if you have leftovers on pokemon A, pokemon B, C, D, E, F can't hold leftovers) - I think that is all of them :o

Hmm sounds good. Everyone keen for this? Could make it a competition for real?

Selegraphon, spread the word on TVGF Facebook group to find some more interest if you please :D

Sweet, ideas for the style of the competition? Obviously going to depend on how many people we get, could do a round robin or we could do a knockout style bracket.

Also, found these documents on the rules:

We need about 3 more people at this stage (at the least) if we can get at least 8 people - we can start with best 2/3 games takes the win - if we can hit 16 interests first round would be single win, wins - So what are the VGC 2014 rules? I haven't done any competitive battling since 4th Gen!

We need at least 3 more people at this stage :o if we get more, and we get to a point where there is an uneven number of players - I can use a random number generator to decide who will have to do an extra game when / if it comes to that too :o

I think I was going to do knock out style - once we get to the top 8 (or if we manage to start with 8 people) games would become best 2 / 3 matches (sine battles don't usually take too long) but if we had a lot more than 8, it would be 1 win moves on until we get to that point :o but I am open to suggestions :D
