I've been lurking the Pokémon drafts for a little while and I thought it would be fun to start another Black/White draft.

Rules:
-Starters and Reshiram/Zekrom are free, as are the Monkeys (but only for the first gym).
-Only drafted units can be used in battle, unless the undraftd units are sent out with Whirlwind/Roar or all of your drafted units have fainted. In that case use it as little as possible/switch out as soon as possible.
-Undrafted units are only allowed to use HMs.
-Barring the Petilil/Cottenee in-game trade, please don't draft Pokémon that aren't in the version you're playing. :\
-No starter abuse or excessive grinding, please.
-Trading units to evolve is allowed.
-The game ends at the credits, but that doesn't mean you have to stop playing.
-In a gym battle, you're only allowed to use as many Pokémon as the gym leader.

That last rule's gonna make Lenora a pain.

If she's that much of a pain I'll make an exception for her, but I thought it would make a neat challenge.

She's got a Herdier and Watchog, IIRC. Both hit really hard, relatively speaking. You can grind, but that breaks yet another rule of the challenge.

When I said no excessive grinding I only meant that you couldn't do massive grinding sessions that would trivialize the game. I don't really plan on being incredibly strict on that rule, though.

It is definetly possible to beat Lenora efficiently with only two pokemon, but I'm not mentioning those pokemon.

Also, I'm in. I've been waiting for a draft like this.

Also, I'm so in.

If it becomes too much of a problem I'll get rid of the rule, but for now I'll keep it up and see how things turn out.

Alright, if there's no more sign-ups by 6 PM (GMT) tomorrow or so, I'll go ahead and start up the draft.

Looks like noone else wants to join, so let's start the draft. We'll be picking six Pokémon for a total of seven with your starter and there will be a 12 hour maximum wait period for picks.

Here are the results of my RNG:

1 4 5 3 2 6 6 2 3 5 4 1

So that means I get first pick. I'll take Cottenee/Whimsicott, since I've always wanted to play with the little troll.

Eclipse is up next; I'll update the OP with the draft order.

I have Black; ergo, I'm drafting Sawk. He's gonna be a pain to get, but IDK.

Also, it's 1:30 PMish here. . . :P:

Hah, it's 6:30 PM here. ;^_^

Okay, Sawk for eclipse and Minccino/Cinccino for chillaccinogirl. That means that Manix gets the next pick.

No Sawk, and no Cinccino? Makes me sad. I wanted Cinccino.

I'll take the Litwick line.
