Congratulations on making into the Top 16. Here are the 16 players that have made into the Top 16 in case you do not know. names are in no particular order Rambo Hatter hampuse1 sKizor Eonic pokemonrocks777 vaporeon Ace- Rainbowgym PMysterious goldedda KingPiplup Time for Pain cabd SuperE Matijs 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 Pokémon 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.

Here it is; February 22 1159 CST.
