A Pokémon Tournament Was Canceled After All 4 Finalists Protested Using Metronome

A Pokémon Scarlet and Violet tournament in South Korea was canceled after finalists planned their own protests.

All four players agreed on a field team consisting entirely of Pokemon who knew only the Metronome, a unique and unpredictable move that unleashed a completely random move when used.

“Pokémon Korea didn’t like our team when they saw it, so they disqualified all four of us for playing the metronome,” said Nash, one of the disqualified finalists. Twitter post.

The result was supposed to be the final match of the tournament, which was decided by pure chance, but the Pokémon Trainer’s Cup was completely canceled before it even started.

This also meant four competing trainers would lose their second day passes to the World Championships later this year.

“[We] I decided to join the Metronome Battle to protest all these issues within our community,” Nash added.

Pokemon players in the Asian region are increasingly frustrated with how tournaments are run, especially when compared to other regions.

Nash said, “No IR events, constant problems with the tour system, disrespect for the younger division, unreasonable compensation for the problems they caused. But the real problem behind all this is , they show absolute contempt for our players.”

But one of the biggest problems is the use of the best-of-one format, which, in addition to its hectic schedule, has sparked a streak of matches at the Pokémon Trainer’s Cup.

“People were getting rematch after rematch and couldn’t stop playing on tour,” Nash explained.

Despite these complaints, Pokémon Korea chose to penalize the protesting finalists, and all four received disqualification emails.

“The reasoning behind that is that we’ve all been trapping Pokémon that have learned certain moves,” Nash said. “According to Pokemon Korea, this falls under prohibited conduct.”

Although the final match was not held, the messages of the four athletes were certainly conveyed, with athletes from other regions also rushing to support them.

“Bringing the Metronome to the Milwaukee Regional Championship as a united top four DQ at the Korean Nationals,” said Pokémon Competitive player Gabe Mendoza on Twitter. “Good luck and enjoy all your opponents.”

IGN’s review of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet gave it a rating of 6/20 and stated: And Violet feels so unfinished. ”
