November 28th @ 2:00PM @ Holey Truth Body Arts LLC

Fire up those Gameboys! We'll be seeing who's the best Pokémon Trainer, with a tournament spanning Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow versions! Even if you don't have a Gameboy and cartridge to bring... we got you covered! We'll be using Pokémon Stadium on the N64 with Controller Paks to show the battles in stunning 90s 3D graphics, and you'll be able to use the stock 'mons to keep the fight going. All Trainers will pay an entrance fee, with 100% of the entrance fees going to a non-profit charity organization.


Prizes will be provided for the top players!

Read over the rules below, and use the form after to register for the tournament!


1. Players can use their own Pokémon, from teams they have built, in Pokémon Red, Blue, or Yellow version. They may use the stock Pokémon in the Pokémon Stadium bank if they don't have a physical Gameboy cartridge.

2. A player cannot have two of the same species of Pokémon on their team, based on the National Pokedex Number. (A player can't have 2 Charizards on their team, but can have a Charmander, Charmeleon, and Charizard).

3. Players cannot use Dig, Fly (two-turn moves), Double Team, Minimize(evasion-rasing moves), Horn Drill, Guillotine, or Fissure (OHKO moves) attacks.

4. Rounds are 20 minutes each, using 3 Pokémon. At the end of 20 minutes, the player with more Pokémon left wins. If it's a tie, the players will continue until either player KOs the other players active Pokémon. The remaining Pokémon are counted, and the player with more remaining Pokémon wins. The final round will be played with 6 Pokémon until one player knocks out all of the other players Pokémon.

5. If both Pokemon faint simultaneously the game is ruled as a tie. Tied games do not count as played games in overall standings and will be expected to be replayed within the round's initial deadline. If you use Explosion or Self-Destruct when you only have one Pokemon left, you automatically lose.

6. Pokemon must be at full health and without status conditions at the start of battle

7.Tradeback moves from future generations are not allowed (example: sending a Pokémon from Gold version with a move not found in Red version, to Red version).

8. Cheating: Cheating in it's various forms is entirely prohibited. Players found to be cheating will suffer Tournament disqualifications and will be labelled 'INFINITE JABRONI' for all time.

9. Host / Tournament Director Decisions: The host may make a judgment call on the outcome of a battle with a disputed result. If you believe the host has made an unjust decision, you may inform the host responsible for the tournament and the group will vote to reach a decision.

10. Sportsmanship: If a player displays exceedingly poor sportsmanship before, during, or after a tournament battle, they may be disqualified or otherwise stripped of any prizing or placing.

11. Player Agreements: Players are allowed to make agreements about their game before it happens, as long as it doesn't break the rules of the tier that the game is happening in, for example agreeing to "No Snorlax" is acceptable, but agreeing to "Celebi allowed" isn't.

12. HAVE FUN!!! This is all for charity. I applaud you for playing your best, and for helping make the world a better place!
