Allow the highest placed player to choose their prize from the prize pool

Question

The case example what this suggestion wants to fix is the prize distribution of events like the Player of the Year tournament's grand final. In this tournament, the grand champion is given a Shiny Gift Chansey, runner-up is given Shiny Gift Milotic and the 3rd place is given Shiny Gift Excadrill. A player (4f) already raised a comment how he would pick the runner-up prize rather than the prize for the Grand Champion if he was to play in that tournament, and to be perfectly honest I don't think he is alone with this opinion.

 

What could possibly be more awkward than having someone throw their Grand Final match just because they feel like they want the runner-up prize more than the Grand Champion's prize. Better so, imagine if both finalist refuse to play because they would rather want to place second than first. Could anything be more awkward (and also somewhat hilarious) than that from the competitive standpoint? Therefor what I'm suggesting for these types of events with multiple shiny prizes that the winner would be allowed first to decide which shiny of the prize pool they want, second placed player would be next to decide and the 3rd placed gets whatever is left.

 

I made a thread to this suggestion rather than commenting on the thread because I think it's a procedure on its own to discuss and similar prize distribution has existed in the past, however before this event there really wasn't a concern that anyone would throw their game for a better prize like there is now.

If I remember correctly, this has happened before. During  Autumn Seasonal Tournament. At the finals one of the players threw (I think it was Lightleaks) so he would get 2nd prize which was shiny ninetails.

Hello @OrangeManiac - We have taken your suggestion into consideration and after discussing with some other staff members, have decided to change the current prize distribution for the Player Of The Year tournament. From now on, the winners may choose the shiny they want from the current prizepool depending on how they place in the tournament (First place gets to pick first and so on). The main thread has been edited. You can see the change here. Thank you for your feedback, have a nice day!
