PokeNations 3

Week 4: BLASTS FROM THE PAST

 

Ah, nothing like a trip down memory lane... You know how there were other generations of pokemon before this one? Crazy, right? Well, this time we're playing some of them! Gens 4, 5, and 6, to be exact! Battles just like the days of old. Of course, not everyone will play in the same format, and for each matchup, there's one new generation!

 

Rules (read em):

The rules here will just be the standard rules and bans of the tiers being played. Smogon clauses are applied as well. But, gotta mention some things regarding past generations (and one particular ban, shhhh):

 

  • In Generations 4 and 5, weather set by an ability (Drizzle, Snow Warning, etc.) is permanent, unless it's changed to another kind of weather
  • In Generations 4 and 5, Defog does not remove hazards or screens, so better stick to Rapid Spin
  • In Generations 4 and 5 (i'm tired now), Grass-types aren't immune to spore and powder moves, and Electric-types can be paralyzed
  • In Generation 4, there's no team preview: you won't know your opponent's team at the start of the battle. Like in Random Battles
  • Remember some moves don't exist in certain generations. Like Scald only exists since Gen 5, Sticky Web is only from Gen 6, etc.
  • Z-moves aren't a thing in any of these generations
  • No matter what the reborn server's builder says, the Baton Pass clause still applies: can't baton pass speed + another stat, and can't have more than one baton pass mon on a team
  • Again, evasion strats (Snow Cloak, Brightpowder, Sand Veil, etc) are banned
  • For this challenge, Breloom and Dugtrio are banned in Gen 4 OU

 

Again, questions in kermit colour. Now for the fun part:

 

MATCHUPS:

 

I. LIGHT GAZERS V/S ZION

 

[Gen 4] OU Singles

 

The rulers of the Earth against the bringers of heavenly light!

 

II. ECLIPSE V/S POLARIS

Will Polaris drown their foes, or will they get eclipsed?

 

III. ZODIAC V/S SUN VALKYRIES

Can the enlightened soldiers topple the treacherous and the occult?

II. ECLIPSE v/s POLARIS

Gen 5 UU

 

Ody vs Personthing

It's Ody. He'll hax Pt to 2-6 and then lose

Lía vs Njab  

Lia doesn't play by the rules. She demanded Njab loses or she'll reveal about a video or something...

Commander vs Cyanna

Some people you just want to see win. Then there's Commander.

Rock Eater  vs Riku

It's obvious, isn't it? They'll have to battle without Rocks for the following weeks.

DeeEmZee vs BigJRA

Eeeehhhhhhhhhhh. Maybe BigJRA will throw. Maybe Sail will throw harder. Let's see.

 

 

SUBS:

Kamina, Bibs / Blackpoi, DarkMaster

30% Bibs gets in and Kam drowns in a pool. If that's the case, then the 2-3 remains.

 

III. SUN VALKYRIES v/s ZODIAC

Gen 6 UU

 

Bazaro vs DW

DW doesn't lose. He allows you to beat him.

Ghost vs Bagel

Ghost has shown some potential. Bagel's still rusty. He'll manage enough to ultimately misplay to a 0-1

Infernape88 vs GoldenVeggie

IP88 is always the answer. Even if he's lost to Bean of all people

DemICE vs Sceptilespy

Demice is Ice type, and thus they get an extra type this week. Zodiacs have to do a 0-10, so there's also that.

Filthy vs HUEnd

Filthy should have been with the other team, based on their types. soo....

 

SUBS:

Epic C, Yinyang / Leonvermillion, DiamondTiara

Call them only if absolutely necessary.

I see week 5 is already put up yet week 4 results aren't even up yet?   I think you guys should start posting the results/standings of the previous week on the new week thread, or at least update this one before posting the new one . This isn't the first time it's happened either <_<
