    No announcement, if people care they'll look 'em up

    However, I am not AmericanTreeFrog. That is quite obvious to you all. Although ATF didn't ask for me to announce this (see above quote), I thought I would anyway, for the benefit of all you lovely people. I'm sure you all do care.

    AHEM. For the attention of all regular co-ordinators and judges, new combos have been discovered and added into the move list. That means there's more of an opportunity for you to get more of those points and come up with new strategies to win your contests. Although the changes may seem minor in some cases, at least you're comforted by the knowledge they're there to be used.

    Additionally, the combo standby moves are now actually in their proper alphabetical order. THAT'S NOT AS IMPORTANT AS THE COMBOS, THOUGH.

    The recently-added combinations are as follows:
    Calm Mind + Psycho Boost.

    Charge + Shock Wave.

    Growth + Frenzy Plant.
    Growth + Leech Seed.

    Hail + Aurora Beam.
    Hail + Haze.
    Hail + Ice Ball.
    Hail + Ice Beam.
    Hail + Icy Wind.
    Hail + Sheer Cold.

    Mind Reader + Sheer Cold.

    Rage + Thrash.

    Rain Dance + Hydro Cannon.

    Sandstorm + Mud Shot.
    Sandstorm + Mud Sport.

    Sunny Day + Blast Burn.

    Two things I forgot to post about.
    1) Judge wages for BW Contests are $750 per Pokemon used if you haven't noticed.
    2) PP for Pokemon in BW Contests is now reduced from 400 to 300.

    Enjoy.

    No tricks here.

    Feng and JokesterJesse are being demoted from Senior Judges. This is due to inactivity, and we of course thank them for their service. In their place SLCalamity is being elevated to senior Judge. Congratulate him and make him judge for you people.

    Also, the Berry Store is getting an upgrade today, and I'll be posting a new tournament in a moment.

    New Contest Move List for BW posted. While there will still be more changes to balance BW Contests and distinguish them more from battles, this list has the starts of those changes and has every move and ability filled in. I posted it as a new thread so that I'll be able to update it (since Chain is already a URPG Mod and SLC already has Mod powers over Contests). We're open to any suggestions you have (except those involving the removal of any or all Contests).

    Contact me, ChainReaction01, or SLC04 with any questions or suggestions.

    Contest event for Birthday Extravaganza can be found here

    I'm also going to make a note here so I can stop having to check old IM discussions, testing in Emerald showed that moves which lock the crowd meter do so after applying the current move's cheering/booing and that it was +6 for crowd going wild

    I dunno where else to post this but I was going over the RSE Move List recently and found two minor errors:

    Payback's startle value is listed as -1, but should be listed as "Varies"

    Feint Attack is still spelled as Faint Attack over at the Combo section with Leer
    you'll see how it's faded

    Both fixed. As for where to post this, here or the Housekeeping thread in General would be fine.

    Brought these up in judge chat but I thought I'd post here still:

    Hold Back is missing in RSE Movelist.
    Flame Charge is missing in DPPt Movelist.
    Also in DPPt Movelist, Quash and some other moves are missing the Swords Dance reminder.

    In DPPt, Whirlpool and similar moves are actually position based, not round based.
    you'll see how it's faded

    Three or four way ties for first now award no ribbons.

    (This is not a retroactive change and has no effect on ribbons previously earned.)
