March 26th is when Stadium 2 comes out. They might have another tour to promote it like they did for the original Stadium.

I honestly don't think we'll have a G/S tour any time soon because...

1. There are still people who play R/B/Y and are loving it (I now play G/S by the way)

2. More people have R/B/Y than G/S

3. There hasn't been enough time for people to get teams and everything setup. I had just finished constructing a R/B/Y team when G/S came rolling along!

Maybe in a year or a year and a half, a G/S tour will appear, and I'll be there with my awesome (not quite determined as of yet) team.

I'd actually prefer a RBY tour...last time they were promoting Yellow, you couldn't actually use Yellow to enter, so they could to some kind of G/S promotional tour, but still make you use RBY.

well, if we have an RBY tour, then there'll be too many M2s, and well, the experienced players'll get cheeted, and the newbies'll prosper (like what happenend in the statium tourney (Fantasy LEague) when i was in the final rounds, and the kid got 14 frickn CHs with Mewtwo's 10 Psychics and 4 Swifts.)

so, GS would be better, in my oppinion

Kingler + Amnesia = God

I hope they allow my poor ol' Kingler with Amnesia..poor bastard..he can't even protect himself from other water moves without Amnesia..sigh..

I know, really. Kingler just sucks without Amnesia. He's unusable! But the thing is, if it has Amnesia, it can't use the cool Crabhammer attack. (Doesn't Crabhammer sound like a wicked cool wrestling move? I bet there are psycho women out there that use Crabhammer on there boyfriends! j/k)

Well, crabhammer doesn't *always* CH, and it has advantages over surf out of the box...

I probably wouldn't make it a moveset staple in combination with Amnesia, though.

If they had a chromatic tour, they would almost assuredly have to allow people to keep bred moves, or warn them of this ahead of time.

Though the popular pokémon media hasn't really gone into the ability to get unnatural moves on existing monsters... but if you went there with Amnesia on a Kingler and detailed the breeding chain used to achieve it, they would probably be ok with it, even if they hadn't heard of it before.

If they do a tour to launch with Metallic Stadium, it will probably be a metallic tournament, in all honesty. It all depends on how many consoles they get going: metallic stadium will almost assuredly be able to read chromatic carts, so you would be able to play if you brought your chromatic cart (the fact that metallic rules and monsters totally change the game play wouldn't be important to 80% of players). If they don't bring very many, they may actually have a chromatic section.

Or they'll just wait until they can expect everyone to have a metallic team.

Or maybe they'll just give up on it.

I hope they don't do that, though.

Eh, I dunno, I'd personally like to see a hybrid tour; the original three Chromatic Cups(G/S moves allowable only via explaining the breeding chain), then a Prime Cup-equivelent for the Metallics. That'd keep everyone happy, really.

Or not, but it'd be fun.

Kurt, the California Champion, has discussed this topic with a Tournement Organizer named Sabrina. Sabrina told him that there will be a tour in Summer/Spring to launch G/S Stadium. That's the only information he was given.

It's not a tournement but it still sounds interesting enough.


How would a top-notch RBY team do vs. a G/S team, anyway?

Not very well if they used Pokémon like Exeggugtor/Alakazam who have been totally statistically raped in Special Defense. Furthermore, any usage of "Amnesia" to powerup Special Attack would be pretty pointless since it powers up Special Defense. With that said, current Snorlax/Slowbro movesets become fairly useless. Along the lines of Defensive playing, Double Team isn't as powerful with the addition of multiple Hazers. Ground-types are pretty worthless since every Electric-type carries Hidden Power Ice, which can devastate them in two turns. The only remaining Ground-types that appear to be useful are Marowak/Steelix.

More or less, standard R/B/Y teams are extremely weak in G/S. I would rather play an entirely standard G/S team then attempt to use my R/B/Y team in a G/S tournement.

MiniJoe traded over his R/B/Y team (due to lack of training :mad to fight me. It really didn't do so hot. I think I won 5-0.

Well, the thing is this: the broken combos in chromatics have been handled, so if your team was all about them, you have problems. If your team was elemental beat down, you probably still have a shot. If you won with an Amnesia'd Mewtwo, your ass is grass.

I'll say this: if your team relied on something that was soooo gooood in the chromatics that it had to go, it'll suck in the metallics. If you tried to play honestly and fairly, then your team is still going to be about the same.

My chromatic team wouldn't stand a prayer's chance in metallic land. Evil monsters undermining my psychics, and Amnesia not being broke as fuck...

How would Team Wiggly do?

Any worse or better?

They seem to have mediocre nailed down pretty well...and how come you still haven't written a war story for our battle?

You could leave out the identify of the fucker that put the beat down on my team the first game, to prevent embarassment...

Yea, maybe they will have a tour to promote crystal. That'd be cool.

Well, Lee might actually stand half a chance due to the downfall of Psychics and the proliferation of Darks, and because his Spec. Def is now higher than Mewtwo's (heh).
