    Exclamation Poké Academy's Kalos Cup: Season 1

    I have a sticky thread to keep a hard copy of everything, but I am going to keep this thread to go forward for discussion on the season. I have my team on Showdown and I am going to start working on the battle schedule and have it posted hopefully tonight, but I will only post the current weeks schedule. I don't want people battling ahead and finishing their season of battles in a weekend and turning the season into weekend tournament.

    I did message the ADMINS there about us getting our own Kalos Cup chatroom, but I am not so sure they reply to any of the messages there, so I am going to look around the Smogon forum here in a bit to see if I can find an answer there.

    Kalos Cup Format Rules:


    • Kalos Region Native Pokémon
      • #650 - #715

    • Level 50
    • 6vs6
    • Evasion Clause
      • No Minimize
      • No Double Team

    • Sleep Clause
    • Item Clause
    • OHKO Clause
    • Unreleased Hidden Abilities
      • Skrelp / Dragalge
        • Adaptability

      • Tyrunt / Tyrantrum

        • Rock Head

      • Amaura / Aurorus

        • Snow Warning

    That should be my team. I just tested mine and it did nothing. My team worked fine in wi-fi and does nothing on Showdown. None of my attacks did more then 21% damage.

    I'm still choosing the other members of the team. If I'd have known we were shortening to 1 draft round, I would have chosen differntly perhaps, but oh well. Noivern is solid to work with - though shallow.

    I've been losing consecutively, it's frustrating, but then again, I'm forced to play in OU, where the selection is just a bit wider.

    I think there is something wrong with Showdown.

    UnderFudge's team, everyone of his Pokémon could OHKO my Pokémon and I could barely dent his.

    The issue I saw was when I used Cotton Guard on Slurpuff it did +2.5 DEF boost instead of the +3 boost Cotton Guard is suppose to do. After 2 uses I was +4 DEF and my math is bad, but 2.5 + 2.5 is not 4 and I used 3 Cotton Guards which should have taken me to +6 which is max, but I could go no higher than +4. Also after 1 Belly Drum I should have been at +6 ATK and I was maxed at +4 ATK.

    Those numbers are not correct.

    Also UnderFudge and I had used the same 2 Pokémon and both were built different, but there is no way they could have been 60-80% damage difference between the one build. Even with Nature, EVs, and 10% damage from Item difference, there is just no way there is 60-80% damage difference.

    His one Pokémon had the same weakness and only Base 72 DEF and I did 21% Damage. My Pokémon had Base 150 DEF took 87% Damage. Granted his version was a bigger attacker, but mine was a bulkier build. The numbers don't add up.

    And I am not taking away from UnderFudge's battling or team in anyway. I am putting this on Showdown's numbers.

    I am using the same setup on my Showdown Goodra as I do for my Wi-Fi Goodra and I have seen the damage it can give and take and it did none of that in Showdown.

    I have 3 new Pokémon on this team and the numbers just don't add up.

    After further checking, Showdown will allow you to create a Pokémon with it's Hidden Ability even if the Hidden Ability is not released in game yet.

    So the following Pokémon are not to be used with their Hidden Ability, only their Hidden Ability.
    Skrelp - Adaptability
    Dragalge - Adaptability
    Tyrunt - Rock Head
    Tyrantrum - Rock Head
    Amaura - Snow Warning
    Aurorus - Snow Warning


    As far as I know that are the only Kalos Region Native Pokémon with Hidden Abilities, but no access to those abilities.

    We have to keep in mind that we're battling OU teams with our Kalos only teams, only a few Kalos pokemon have proven to have a spot in the new metagame so in theory we should lose most of the time.
