Are You the Next Master Trainer?
Team Rocket is up to no good again, and the Let’s Play Team is looking for next Master Trainer to take them on. Join us this year at LPGE as we introduce our search for the next Poke Master!
That’s right, we’ll be holding a tournament using your childhood teams. Simply email Hal ahead of time to signup, or come out to the expo with your cart!
We’ll try to have some carts with beginner teams on them for forgetful trainers, but what would that prove, really? Other than you’re good at not remembering stuff!
Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow (Gameboy)
Pool play may precede bracket play if the number of participants is suitably large.
Super Nintendo’s and Super GameBoy 2’s will be used with Super Nintendo controllers that the LPGE tournament staff provides.
Each participant must bring their own Red, Blue, or Yellow GameBoy cartridge and will choose a single team of 6 Pokémon. This will be the team they use throughout the duration of the tournament. The team will be inspected by a LPGE tournament staffer to verify that each Pokémon on the team does not break any level, move set, or species restrictions. If the participant uses any other Pokémon besides that on their registered team, or if any of their Pokémon has changed in level, move set, or stats, between tournament registration and the ending of the tournament, they will be disqualified immediately without question.
For each round in the tournament, the participants will choose 3 Pokémon from their original team of 6 to use in the round, and these will be the Pokémon they can use in that round. The deadline for signing up for this tournament will be 90 minutes before the start time due to staff needing to verify the participant’s teams to meeting the requirements.
Level Cap – For this tournament is Level 80.
Banned Pokémon – Mew, Mewtwo, and/or Glitch Pokémon, such as Missingno.
Banned Moves – Any Pokémon with one of these moves in its move set is not eligible for participation.
Species clause: Each Pokémon on a player’s team must be of different species or National Pokédex number.
Sleep clause: Each player can only have one Pokémon asleep at a time (Pokémon that are put to sleep due to Rest do not count).
Freeze clause: Each player can only have one Pokémon frozen at a time.
Self-KO clause: Player automatically loses if his last Pokémon uses Self-destruct or Explosion.
