Pokémon Tennis

You receive an interesting e-mail.

Tennis heroes of the world! Once again the time has come for our beloved Pokémon to battle it out on the tennis court. This year's event promises to be even more special than the last.

As one of the world's best tennis players, I would like you to train a team of Pokémon and help them become super skilled at tennis. I'm sure that if they are taught by someone as amazing as you, the quality of the matches will be higher than ever. They will be allowed to use every move in their arsenal to get the ball over the net.

Please help make this event as spectacular as possible, and you will be handsomely rewarded!


((( To join this event, pick a team of ten Pokémon and PM it to me. Choose from the following list:émon_by_National_Pokédex_number

Any Pokémon from #001 Bulbasaur to #251 Celebi is allowed. Nothing higher!

The Pokémon you train will be stronger than others.

Pokémon types will also influence their strength (water is strong against fire, electric is strong against water, etc.)

The event format is a 256 Pokémon knockout tournament (five random ones will be added).

Two or more players can pick the same Pokémon, it will become even stronger (but not invincible!).

You'll win more stat points the better your team performs.

The event will take place from Monday till Friday next week, during the Monterrey tournament.

Good luck! )))

It's like cool epilepsy.

Just a question. Just how realistic will the battles be?

Say if you have two fire types fighting against each other, how will you decide who wins? Randomly, or using your pokemon knowledge to decide which one has better stats and is overall stronger?

And what about 2 types that are neutral to each other? Say a fire vs electric battle? :p

The battles will be done the same way as my tennis match simulations. Its stats (serve, return, attack, defense, stamina) will depend on how many people train it, and also whether it is "(super) effective" against its adversary or not effective at all. Like regular match simulations, the higher the stats the higher the chance of winning.
