Default The [F]ree [D]emocratic [T]rainers' [S]ociety - Always recruiting!

FREE
DEMOCRATIC
TRAINERS'
SOCIETY








"Strong Pokemon. Weak Pokemon. That is only the selfish perception of people. Truly skilled trainers should try to win with the Pokemon they love best."
-Karen of the Johto-Kanto Elite Four



Welcome to the Free Democratic Trainers' Society! The FDTS is not a clan, but an egalitarian coalition of Pokemon trainers. The FDTS is dedicated to the values of equality and direct democracy, and in addition is supposed to be a break-off from the usual Smogon-ruled competitive battling culture. The FDTS will not bog you down with a bunch of rules and regulations; go ahead and use that Garchomp you spent weeks training!

The purpose of the FDTS is to provide an environment of total equality and solidarity, in keeping with the principles of democratic centralism, adhocracy and personal freedom. It is not by any means supposed to be just another competitive battling clan. We will not discriminate against you for any reason, especially the types of Pokemon you like to use. We will have tournaments where people use the Pokemon they like, with the strategies they like, where the arrogance of Smogon and the deadpan atmosphere of "competitive" battling have no presence. The only banned Pokemon and items here are hacks. I will explain in further, clearer detail below:


Rules

-No hacked items or Pokemon, unless battlers agree that using them is okay.
-PE2K rules do not apply unless battlers mutually agree that they should, and unless the battle is part of a clan war.
-The coalition may enter into a war with a clan, which will be called a "clan war" but by no means will it hold the same status or importance.
-Members are strongly encouraged but not by any means forced to follow the principles of democratic centralism. This means that when a group decision is made (it will always be done through direct democracy, so majority wins), everyone is expected to go along with the end result, even if they disagree. This maintains effective decision-making and helps us get things done.
-All members are welcome to submit any sort of content.
-All group decisions are made through direct democracy. Decisions of individual members are to be generally respected unless they affect the rest of the group in a negative manner.
-Members are encouraged to not follow the Smogon model but instead to use Pokemon, moves, items and strategies that they like.
-Everyone is to be treated with respect and equality.
-Everything is subject to democratic change, even the coalition name.
-Discussion of all sorts is encouraged in the coalition group, which I will link to at the end of this post. All members of the FDTS are strongly encouraged to join the group.
-It is encouraged but again not required that you link to the coalition in your signature.
-Tryout battles are encouraged for the sake of battling, but are not entirely necessary.
-Tournament prizes are taken from the Pokerus Empire clan shop.
-Other rules will be removed and added if members request it and no one objects.

Member Rankings

There are none! Everybody is equal here. We advance not by competition with each other but by co-operation.


Coalition Banners & other coalition-related art


Members are always welcome to submit more banners and coalition-related art!



Battle rules

-All rules are decided upon by battlers and must be made clear before the battle begins. If no rules are set, that means everything is allowed.

-There are two types of battles here:

1) Competitive Battle

Exactly what you'd expect. While this coalition's original purpose is to break away from this in order to facilitate the usage of Pokemon and strategies that are preferred by Trainers, I will not be so imposing and authoritarian as to ban anyone from doing something that has been mutually and fairly decided upon.

2) Free Battle

This coalition has been created largely to break away from the usual competitive battling scene. Use what Pokemon, items, and moves you like and what you think is best, not just what Smogon says. The tier list is disregarded, which means that all Pokemon can be used unless the two trainers battling lay down rules that say otherwise before battle.


War Record

No wars yet.

You are very much welcome in.

Take your time putting your team together, great teams can take a long time to build.

Lolz, welcome. I plan to post something on the Pokerus Empire thread about this, to ask Mr420 to put it in an intro post for reference.

I know, which is why I'm going to change this so that it's more like a side dish thing.

I got the impression that this was merely a gathering place for trainers who dislike Smogon and the strict rules. Perhaps trainers who want battles that are less restricted and unoriginal. The lack of ranks and a "leader" would suggest that this isn't a clan, right?

Edit: I don't mean that Akai isn't a good leader, I mean that this clan has no leader posted, making it a coalition of trainers on equal terms.

YES, that's exactly what I wanted it to be. I misused the word "clan". Edited the whole intro post as well as the group to change "clan" to "coalition".

so is this like a hang out spot for battlers from your other clan ? sounds like a cool unique idea but i dont if it would belong in are section in the battling forum. This is section is for clans and tournaments.
