Was planning on doing themed battle competitiond like this one for a while. The main idea for this competition however is for all the Pokémon that can use the move Metronome. There was a recent Poketuber's Metronome battles event which is where I had gotten the idea :p. This will follow similar rules but will be done on Showdown for ease of access of not having to obtain them in game.
We'll start off with a draft period once enough players have been obtained. (if we go over however I will try to set up another bracket with mid-evolutions or lower).
Then once you have your team of 6 you may select from any of that Pokémon's possible abilities (they must be possible in game so Volbeat, and Illumise can't have Prankster), and Natures however the evs must be 252 Speed/HP and 252 in either Attack or Special Attack. The 4 remaining evs doesn't matter much so it can be in any other stat. The only item allowed is the Leppa Berry and the only move allowed is Metronome. The last rule is that you must use Metronome at least 1 turn before switching (including the first turn). This is to prevent stalling out the opponents Metronome and gaining an advantage over the opponent. Battles will start whenever we get enough players. The current number of Pokémon is 41 so either 6 or 7 players but may have to double up for one Pokémon to make it 6 Pokémon each for 7.. There will also be room for a possible round for weaker Metronome users.
If you want to battle then post down below including your Showdown Username in the post and reply to the poll on which format you want you want it to be in :)

I rather like this idea. I watched the whole event that you're referring to and it seemed like an absolute blast. My Showdown username is the same here: Gengarzilla.

If my memory serves me right, single target moves called by Metronome will go for a random opponent in Doubles. I think we should use the format since it would add another layer of luck to the already unpredictable proceedings. Though, I'll be all fine if more people want Singles.

Oi Flut- er, I mean @Nightmare Moon, I've got some questions for you 'bout this thing. Specificly...

1. What is this drafting process you speak of, and why did you include it?

2. Why the restrictions on EV spreads?

And 3. What'll happen if you don't get enough entried by, say, the end of the year?

Just wondering about a few things, sorry about the double post btw.

I kinda had to put it off for a few due to irl things.. but the draft process is essentially like how a draft would be. everyone takes a turn to pick a pokemon that can get Metronome with the first person choosing last the next one until 6 pokemon are acquired..

Just to make sure certain Pokémon aren't too bulky lol.
I don't know tbh.. But I'll try to at least keep this alive until it's finished..

Edit Jan 25th 2019
Going to close this since there hasn't been much going on here. I'll try again at a later point but for now this hasn't gotten anywhere unfortunately..
