Favourite Types of Tourmanent?
POLL: Favourite type of Tournament?
Basically what it says in the title - and will continue to say in the poll, which I'll add in just a minute. What is your favourite type of tournament to take part in, if you indeed take part in tournaments? I'll go on selfish record and say my favourite type is 'Earn IP', cus they tend to be the ones I'm best at. :P Also, some statistics I gleaned from grabbing all the types to make the poll that'll be coming: there's seventeen types thus far
(one fewer than Pokemon types. The most frequent so far has been "Hatch Pokemon in good affinity to the V-Wave", appearing sixteen times out of 151 - particularly owing to that one time we had it three weeks running. The least frequent is 'Adopt and hatch eggs from the shelter', at three times.
I like interaction point ones and hatching eggs that match the v~wave

I personally prefer the fish and berry type of tournament because I can easily be in the 100th of these. I can't do the same with interactions point one, so because of that I don't even have the kawotor's egg yet :') *Look at their arceus rank flying away*
I miss hatching Pokemon based on their color. It's been quite a long time since we had one of those. Hatching based on body type is fun as well.

Honestly, I may be in the minority but I love hatching potd / body types. It's like everyone comes together to hatch pokemon and it's an awesome way to get a chain going of some more unusual pokemon you might not always be inclined to hatch. It's a great breather, imo. I also love the berries tourney and hatch any egg - I've never seen hatch pokemon based on color, but that's really neat too! Could do without evo tournaments, IV, scouring, and fishing though. They're either too time consuming or resource consuming (or both).

Okay, I think it's been a week enough - let's gauge the results so far! 'Earn Interaction Points' is the most popular tournament by far, at about 14 votes of 58, rounded up (keeping in mind I allowed multiple choice). Of those who got votes, 'Hatch a specific nature' and 'evolve with the V-wave' were the least popular at one or two votes each; 'Evolve', 'Evolve a variety', 'Hatch the POTD' and 'Hatch from the Daycare' got no votes at all. Generally speaking, then, tournaments where you hatch eggs seem to be more favored than tournaments where you evolve Pokemon. This might factor into, or be the result of, there being more varieties of the former than the latter.
Berry harvesting and scouring Tournaments are easy in my eyes, because you can do them along the way while you're busy with everything else. I honestly didn't expect evolve (a variety) Tournaments to be so unpopular. They are my favourite; evolve a variety even more so than just evolve. I've even prepared a list of easy to evolve Pokémon just for those Tournaments. But I don't like IP gaining Tournaments that much.
Made by myself, only official game sprites used.
I used to dislike Earning IP because I clicked way less than I do now. Now I couldn't stay off even if I tried. Scouring is the one everyone loses sleep over (#yikesforever) but I don't mind them unless they're the starting point of the new season. I sorta miss the PotD one because now I can afford that little "Shiny = 6 extra points!" mechanic, but as far as I know, it's not a thing anymore :/ Fishing is the worst for me because I find it tedious and boring. I can't multitask when I have to fish, and I get way more Pokemon fleeing than I do caught. But the one I'm most sick of is the V~ Affinity one. Anything to do with V~ I'm not very fond of, but that one in particular is just ugh. It doesn't help that it pops up the most often.
I'm quite fond of the Interaction Point and V-Wave affinity Tournaments.
Bumping again, to scrounge a last burst of answers before the poll shuts and I can properly gather results!
