    Exclamation The Poké Academy Board's Side Projects #1

    In an effort to draw more interest to the academy, the board has been working on 4 side project ideas.

    The first project has been a goal of the academy since the academy started.

    So I would like to find out what kinda interest the Poké Academy League, P.A.L., would draw from the forum.

    Now not to take away from the EPFL, this league will be all UU Pokémon.

    I am still working out the rules and format, but I would like to try yo find 24-32 battlers. The league would last for 11 weeks, 10 battles, 1 battle a week and 1 bye week. Then there will be a 1 week break and then a 4 week playoff. That is a total of 16 weeks. I don't think 1 battle per week would be too time constraining.

    Season length would also depend on the number of battlers. For the 24-32 battlers there would be 2 conferences with 12-16 teams in each. If we have less there would be adjustments made.

    So for now I am just looking to setup a poll and see how much interest we have.

    Also any comments or questions would be cool.

    Oh the other 3 side projects will be announced soon.

    This is still a work in progress, but I would like to hear the feedback for the league structure I have came up with.

    League structure is based off a 32 battler season.
    League Structure


    1. 11 Week Schedule
      • 10 battle weeks
      • 1 bye week

    2. 2 Conferences
      • FBC - Fiore Battle Conference
      • OBC - Orre Battle Conference

    3. 4 Divisions
      • Kanto
      • Johto
      • Hoenn
      • Sinnoh

    4. 6 Divisional Battles
    5. 3 Conference Battles
    6. 1 Inter-Conference Battle


    Playoffs

    1. 1 week off between season and playoff.
    2. 4 Division Winners
    3. 2 Wild Card Battlers
    4. During the playoffs, the Duplicate Item Clause is not in effect.
    5. Playoff seeding is based on season record.
      • Seeds #1 & #2 1st round bye
      • Seeds #3 vs #6
      • Seeds #4 vs #5


    Rules

    1. Level 100 battles
    2. Basic Gym Rules
      • Species Clause
      • Duplicate Item Clause
      • Evasion Clause
      • Self-K.O. Clause
      • Sleep Clause
      • One-hit KO (O.H.K.O.) Clause

    3. PokéFarm UU Tier Pokémon Only.
    4. Pokémon do not have to have same OT & ID#.
      • You may use Pokémon not bred by you as long as they are legit.

    5. A team roster must be submitted to the Roster Board.
    6. Changes to your team are only allowed during the Poké Placement weeks.
    7. Changes need to be submitted to the Roster Board.
    8. Poké Placement weeks
      • Season weeks 1-4
        • Only 1 Poké can be changed per week.

      • Bye week between season and playoffs.
        • 2 Pokés may be changed during the bye week.


    9. Each team will assign a Team Captain Pokémon.
      • Team Captain Poké cannot be removed from the team.
      • Team Captain Poké's item does not count against the Duplicate Item Clause.
        • Meaning your Team Captain can have the same item as one other Poké on your team.



    After the Battles

    1. Each battler has to report the outcome & score of the battle to the Chairman.
    2. Each member must send a list of opponent's Pokémon to the Register Board
      • Including
        • Poké Nickname
        • PokéDex #
        • OT
        • ID#


    3. Scores from the battles will help in determining rank between battlers with the same record.

    The after battlers I would like it to just be report the outcome and score and take it that the rosters would be on the honor system.

    Any questions, comments, or insults? Well maybe not the insults.

    I would have to say you'd have a hard time finding

    1. So many battlers who want to UU (I do)
    2. People with time to do so week on week (I don't)

    1 battle in 7 days is too much?

    Any other ideas on what could make an UU league desirable? Would doing a more direct schedule, like say a tournament style season with more then 1 loss having you removed from play?

    I don't know why the football style league appeals to me. I think it allows for surprises, without having people just changing teams at will to be better. It makes you actually have to have a long term strategy over lets prepare for this battle.

    Hmm, I am wondering if the league would do a 3 week preseason and then go into a tournament style playoff with the seeding for the tournament coming from the 3 week preseason?

    I am not looking to start this as soon as we have something figured out. There would be a brief down period to allow for people to build teams/Pokés or get Pokés from friends.

    Yes I am going to continue to . O.K. 1 battle a week for potentially 16 weeks is a bit much to commit to.

    So this time I was thinking of a more of a whole wrestling W.W.E. or a U.F.C. kinda feel.


    Doing like 1 major tournament, Pay-Per-View style setup, and maybe 2-3 minor battle shows a month. Which not everyone that signs up would have to battle. The better you do when given a chance to battle the higher your rank goes and the more chances you have to defend your status. Which I think there could be a setup for 3 different skill levels, heavyweights, middleweight, and cruiserweight. Everyone would start out in the cruiserweight division and you advance based on battling.

    Which championships would be given to the top battler and they would hold the title until defeated. Which I have not checked with the Staff about adding any badges for this. If there is no interest then I don't need to pursue it further. It could also go that even with a few people participating that I could just do everything on my own site as a side project for me.

    A little more about the ultimate little cup.
    Everyone knows here at PF we have the Hatchling Gym and baby battles. All at level 1, 3 vs. 3, and with no items. On other sites and most of the metagame little cup battles are at level 5. So the ultimate little cup would be a level 5, 6 vs. 6, item using brawl. Now there are additional rules for this style of play, with certain Pokés being banned and even some items. Like I said I won't dig into that unless there is some interest.

    I like the ULC battle idea quite a bit. Even with certain pokemon and Items banned it should be fun.

    Hmm, I think I'd be up for this. I'd worry about not being able to commit (ask Reptyler how reliable I am) but I think as long as I have a week to plan a battle I'd be fine. I can't do 100s, but a LC sounds like fun.

    Billy: Trust your instincts.
    Penny: But he turned out to be totally sweet. Sometimes people are layered like that. There's something totally different underneath than what's on the surface.
    Billy: And sometimes there's a third, even deeper, level that's the same as the top surface one... Like with pie.
