Tournament Announcement (May 9th 2021)

Hiya Everyone!!

This is going to be the first forum post of many indicating the rules in the next tournament. Any pokemon, move, ability or item that is not listed below in the ban list section, is eligible for the next tournament.

First things first is the theme/ format of the tournament, which is Monotype Ground 😮

This means that every pokemon in your team must be ground typing. You can have dual type pokemon, as long as one of the types are ground.

(Ground) - Allowed
Swampert (Water/ Ground) - Allowed
Skarmory (Steel/ Flying) - Disallowed

When: Sunday May 9, 2021 at 3:00PM EST (Click me to see your timezone!)

1st Place:
$100 Paypal, A Special prefix and kit only available to tournament winners.
2nd Place: $50 Paypal
3rd Place: $25 Paypal
(Paypal awards can also be redeemed as TheNodeMC store gift cards if you so choose.)

BONUS PRIZE: One lucky participant will be randomly selected to win a brand new, never seen, special textured pokemon.


The majority of the standard smogon clauses we'll be using, such as:
- Evasion
- Endless Battle
- Sleep
- Species
- Bag
- Dynamax

Ban List:
- Groudon, Primal Groudon, Landorus, Landorus Therian, Zygarde 10%, Zygarde 50%, Zygarde Complete
Move - Clangorous Soul, Baton Pass
Ability - Moody, Arena Trap, Shadow Tag, RKS System, Multitype
Item - N/A

Remember, if it's not on the list above, and it meets the requirements set out by the clauses, it's fair game! Let's see how creative everyone can get with their teams!
