    Default Idea - Mono-tournament!

    Hello there, everyone!

    Just posting with an idea i took from a friend's team this evening.
    You see, he used a team composed entirely of Psychic pokemon and managed to beat me!
    Despite the fact i had suitable counters, he out-sped, out-thought and most of all, out-played me!

    This got me thinking. Wouldn't it be great if we could have something like a tournament composed of people with team's entirely of the same typing!

    I'd suggest a seventeen man tournament [One for each typing]. As rounds progress, it would certainly be interesting to see people with complete counter teams going at it!

    Tell me your thoughts and / or discuss and if it's viable.

    Thanks! - Amos.

    My issue with this would be that some pokemon types simply offer better stats/resistances than others. So certain teams would begin with an advantage.

    Ghost, Flying or Dark teams would be at an advantage due to their immunities.

    So would dragon. Only Ice and Dragon can do good damage against it.

    @Amos: I love your idea. My friends and I are actually having one in real life. Instead of us beign assaigned one, how about we all pick our favorite types? So for example, there would be like 4 ice teams, 2 psychic, 5 grass teams, etc.

    Actually that sounds in theory like a good idea but overall the gameplay would be difficult. like sorgatani said. Not saying i wouldnt want to enter but it could be unfair to the types like fire or water.

    Sounds like fun
    Yeah some would be disadvantaged, but the fun part is coming up with strategies to counter those which are advantaged.
    Count me in if it does happen.

    This would be fun. Some typings would be better than others, but I suspect it wouldn't be impossible to win even with a bad type.

    We might reserve the really weak typings for breeders with lots of badges & give out Dragon, Ghost, etc to folks that haven't battled as much on the boards.

    I'd enter.

    This sounds like an interesting idea. You won't really know how it works out unless you try it out right? If this does take place then count me in as well

    you'd have to be able to chose your own typing, but other than that, it sounds interesting.

    That sounds like a good idea, Jhamin.
    Thanks for all the support everyone ^^
    My only other point of contention i have is, i think maybe it's better to draw names out of a hat for typing because like, say if we had 20 people, imagine if we had 19 who were ice and one who was dragon.
    Do you see what i mean?
    I don't know, perhaps it could work. I for one would love the idea of choosing my favourite type, but if it's going to unbalance the idea, i'm not sure.

    But the good thing about having more than one person as a type is we can have far more than 19 competitors, so actually, I'm sort of swayed towards picking your own now.
