Would this be on a simulator like Pokemon Showdown or just Wi-Fi?

I'm curious, too. I never played with a simulator before but that's actually something that might work for me

i imagined it being wi-fi since i've never had experience working with a simulator, but if that's what everybody wants then i'm certainly open to the idea

I'd prefer a simulator, since I probably won't have anything close to a decent team on Wi-Fi for a little while, but I don't mind too much. Showdown's really easy to use if we're using a simulator.

Yeah, this. Plus then ideal IVs, EVs, and strats are actually possible and I'm not limited by my crazy schedule.

Also, I assume that a simulator would mean that I might be able to join

I'd be up for it, testing out this team of mine even more would be pretty sweet. I have crafted it rather brilliantly, if I do say so myself and I'm so proud of it Smile

Showdown or Wifi both work for me though I'm still missing one of my Pokemon for Wifi so I'd be able to do a showdown tuorney sooner.

I'll have to pass Neutral I don't want to do any heavy battling until I have a team, and I don't want to build a team until I know that my team will remain usable, e.g training a Weavile only to find out that I should've waited because Knock Off is superior on Weavile and is only available in gen 5. So post-bank, possibly post-post-bank.

All I have now is random Pokemon and they're all pretty frail. It's not my playstyle.

I think we'd just work out what the matches were in this thread, then use the "/challenge" command to battle each other.

We'd work out what the matches were in this thread, probably with an RNG or something. In the Pokemon Showdown lobby, you can challenge somebody to a battle by typing "/challenge (username goes here)" in the chat. They can accept or decline, so we can battle each other like that.

Cool! I still need to make an account and my team from B2 first though. So does OJ, I guess.

Oh man, this is neat and helpful :O

Just to be sure, no ubers means as long as it isn't a Legendary or Blaziken it's fine?

...

Actually, remember when we were talking about being gym leaders and stuff?

Could we maybe use this for the battles?

...Wait shit, Metagross is uber isn't it? I might have to rethink my team a bit. Where do we find a list of Pokemon by tier?

OJ, maybe we have a normal tourney right now, and a by-type tourney next?

For 6th gen Pokebank OU, the only Ubers right now are 680+ BST legends, Darkrai, Shaymin-S and Deoxys forms. Can't think of any others. Blaziken currently isn't Ubers. Metagross is emphatically not Ubers.
