Default Tournament: Gym Leader Battle Royale!

Hi all,

So yeah, I came up with a fun idea for a tournament. It could go horribly wrong, or it could end up being a great success. Either way it's significantly different from traditional competitive battling and will force participants to get creative!

Participant numbers are open ended. If we get an even 16, we can have a straight knockout tournament. If there are less (Or more, for the sake of optimism!), I'll put together some small divisions to round the numbers up/down.

So yeah, the rules:

This tournament will be hosted on Pokemon Online.
6 v 6 singles
Tiers/Banlist: N/A, see "special rule"
Clauses:
-Wifi Battle Clause
-Sleep Clause
-OHKO Clause
-Evasion Clause
-Hax Item Clause
-Self KO Clause
-Moody Clause
-Swift Swim/Drizzle Combination Ban

The unique spin this tournament takes is that you will not be picking your lineup, Game Freak have already decided them for you!
-Each participant must choose a lineup of pokemon used at some point by a Gym Leader, Eliter Four Member, or Elite Four Champion, across the third, fourth or fifth generation of games.
-The player must not change this lineup, with the exception of NFE pokemon. The player may choose to evolve any Pokemon up to its maximum stage.
-Given that some Gym Leaders use multiples of certain Pokemon or Pokemon which would otherwise be banned, Species Clause is not in effect for this tournament, and Ubers are allowed.
-Only the Pokemon lineup needs to be exact (With the above exception), the movesets, levels, items etc of the Pokemon are entirely up to the user to choose. Unreleased Dream World abilities are still banned.
-Each Leader/E4 Member/Champion may only be used by one player. Once that individual has been chosen by a user, that lineup and any other lineups they may have become off limits to other users (With the exception of doubles lineups, which will become off limits if both members are already chosen. If a doubles lineup is chosen when one member is already off limits, the second member becomes off limits)
-Lineups will be picked anonymously, on a first come first serve basis. Once the tournament is full (either 8 or 16 participants, depending on level of interest), I shall set a date where participants can PM me their desired charactor and lineup, along with their second, third, fourth and fifth choices, and so on. There will be several days notice, with multiple PM reminders coming from me in the run up to the event. You do not have to put the entire list into a desired order, but it helps because if all of your choices are taken, it holds up the rest of the queue while I wait for you to pick again. First reply gets first pick, and so on. If their first choice is taken already, they will be allocated their next available preference. For the sake of fairness, I will choose from the remaining teams after each player has been allocated their chosen.
-Once teams are determined, I will post a list of who has obtained what.

The following spoiler contains all 6-pokemon rosters used across fourth and fifth generations, and where they came from. While you are more than welcome to use a roster where a Gym Leader/E4 Member with 5 or less Pokemon, you are obviously putting yourself at a disadvantage. I think I have compiled all of them, let me know if I have missed a lineup that you wish to use.

I fail to see how this is relevant to the thread. Tournaments like this would not be achievable on wifi, simply because nobody would want to build an entire team from scratch that would be useless after the tournament is finished.

There are plans to start the ladders again some time in the future. Speak to TUST about it.

Just a quick heads up guys, but I'm going on holiday until next thursday. I'm by no means neglecting the tournament (Although in hindsight starting the tournament up before I left wasn't clever =P), so we'll use this week as a sign up period, and hopefully there will be enough participants when I get back to start this thing up. If you know of anybody who might be interested in playing, start spreading the word [=
