    This challenge will be a tough one in my mind. With 16 players, it could be difficult. But I do think it is possible. The challenge will be the same for everyone and it is the same challenge used in the championship round of last years tournament, but, it will have a slight twist. I call it modified Free-Art.

    Here is the rundown of the challenge, CREATE ANYTHING YOU WANT!!!
    simple right?
    Yes and NO, it just wouldn't be Iron Chef without a twist. So here it is;
    NO Supporters
    NO Basic Energy
    NO Poke Energy(Holon Castform, Holon Magnemite, etc)
    Only common and uncommon, no rares!!!


    The challenge is for everyone, just hope ot beat your opponent, basically.

    Again, this is EXACTLY how modified Free-Art works;
    Build a deck of whatever you want, it needs to be creative, if it is NOT you get an Auto Zero for creativity score. This means if you play Flaridos with a tech, it is still Flaridos and you will get a ZERO! You need to actually abuse the card use, there will be a ton of sets to choose from. Also, make the deck consistent and abide by general pokemon rule of thumb. Rule of thumb is basically "this is how you win", "this is how I lose", "It may be hard to retreat" "I need This much energy to attack". There are a lot more examples, but it is a basic.

    Keep in mind, these decks are not meant to beat anything, think of it as a solitaire mode kind of deck. Build it for that.

    Here is the Ban List-
    • NO BAN LIST with exception of what is stated above in the red color
    • You are NOT playing against a deck, just a general understanding of game mechanics.
    • The format is EVERY CARD that's not above in the red color, which means ALL Pok√©mon sets, from base set, trainer kits, promos, Plasma storm, EVERYTHING!!!
    • Also, for a twist...ALL COIN FLIPS ARE CONSIDERED WHATEVER YOU WANT THEM TO BE. H or T's, you choose. Due note, be careful with how you abuse this mechanic.

    I think this will test EVERYONE, no matter the skillset. This will be very interesting to grade and HARD for you to make.
    Here is the bracket again, for those wondering!!!
    Top 16 Bracket

    The bracket tells you EXACTLY who you are playing.

    If this challenge isn't clear, feel free to PM me questions or please post on this thread for all to read. I will answer rather quickly for the next couple of hours.

    Also, just because I am mean:p
    The deadline for this will tough for everyone, the deadline will be MUCH shorter. Here it is;
    February 22 1159 CST.

    In other words, play flippy deck, win everything. Sigh.

    Or, lose everything. I said, "due note, don't rely on this game mechanic too much."

    It will be costly to your score.

    It is worth saying this, Just because you do NOT include a single flippy card, your score will NOT reflect it. Just because you use a Flippy card, depending on the reliance of the flip it will NOT affect your score.

    Ah, see, that clarification helps somewhat.

    Are all Base-Nintendo Era "Trainers" now items? What is the stance?

    How is Computer Search being handled?

    So we can only play with special energy?

    There is an official ruling on how the current line of Trainers work with both the TSS and the Pre-TSS era. Basically, it reads something like this...

    1) Items = DP-HS Trainers = pre-DP not-Supporter, not-Stadium.

    2) If a mechanic refers to a specific Trainer designation, then it works on any TSS that fits the definition of that Trainer designation from that era.

    Basically, if a DP-HS mechanic refers to a "Trainer", then it will not affect a Supporter or a Stadium, only TSS that fit what a "Trainer" would be in the BW-HS era. If a BW-on mechanic refers to an "Item", then it will only affect what an "Item" would be defined as in other generations.

    You can ask the question in ATM. They'll probably give a more clear answer than I just gave.

    Fine and good Bullados, but that doesn't solve Base-last WOTC set.

    I don't see how it doesn't. Up until the Gym sets, there were no Stadiums. Up until the Ecard sets, there were no Supporters. The rulings follow logically from the rulings made on the current cards and sets.

    Go read the rules team. Even they are waiting on japan on how we treat the old Computer Search vs the new one in unlimited.

    Here is my stance on Computer Search. As I have read we cannot play the old computer search in today's format. My logic to this would mean because of this unofficial ruling, it would mean they are NOT the same. You just cannot have more than four. So this means for this round you can play MULTIPLE computer search.

    "Only common and uncommon, no rares!!!"

    This means no holos/ultra rares either right? :p

    Just to confirm:

    1. You stated "Only common and uncommon, no rares", is this assuming that Ultra Rares are banned as well? (Ninja'd by hampuse, oh well :p)

    2. Are all NON-Supporter Trainer cards legal?

    3. We can use any Special Energy card, correct?
     
  14. Vegeta ss4

    Vegeta ss4 Iron Chef Leader

    Non supporter trainers are legal.

    If a holo is rare, no you cannot play it. Ultra Rare is obviously not allowed, did you really have to ask?

    You said "rare". Better safe then sorry.
     
  16. Vegeta ss4

    Vegeta ss4 Iron Chef Leader

    It also says only common/uncommon.

    Computer Search is a rare.
     
  18. Vegeta ss4

    Vegeta ss4 Iron Chef Leader

    Well spotted, I overlooked it being a rare.
     
  19. Rambo

    Rambo Active Member

    Do promos count as rares? As they're all stars..
     
  20. Vegeta ss4

    Vegeta ss4 Iron Chef Leader

    Again, if it is NOT a common or an uncommon, you CANNOT play it.
