A "duel" would simply be hunter versus hunter in one of three formats:

1) Two hunters, one arena, no other monsters. Just see who lasts the longest.

2) Two hunters, two arenas, each one has fifteen or so little monsters (Jaggi, Baggi, Bnahabra, Wroggi, etc) and two big monsters (Great Jaggi, Great Wroggi, Great Baggi, Qurupeco, Royal Ludroth, etc.) First to completely clear out his or her arena wins.

And, to make it fair, the players can each individually choose their weapon style, but the game chooses what weapons and armor either player wields and wears.

3) Two hunters, infinite little monsters, no big monsters. The "arena" is one of the hunting areas (Deserted Island, Sandy Plains, Flooded Forest, Tundra, etc.) The hunters literally hunt each other (this style of "duel" was mentioned in Jules Verne's From the Earth to the Moon.

The way Monster Hunter is setup, PvP will not be fair.

In monster hunter, you succeed by being able to learn a monsters moveset, and our weapon abilities, and then do damage while avoiding. Some weapons are set for little bit of damage but very often, while others are for huge damage fairly infrequently. Some are meant to be used always at a distance, while others at extremely long range. Some are setup for counters, and others for wide arcs...

All that means that if placed on any type of PvP... be that direct fights, or indirect, as in monster hunts, some will ALWAYS have an advantage. PvP is putting everyone on equal footing, and seeing who can outwit the other one and succeed. And this would not be possible.

A reason it should NEVER be done, is because PvP causes developers to severely nerf weapons and/or armors to make them "fair" in fights. I can tell you that I have seen this happen countless times in online games.

So... IMO there should never be pvp in MH.

i agree with sephastus PvP should not be a part of Monster Hunter.

also you do have the Arena Battles for competing (like in your second suggestion).

i do generally think that making monster hunter a more competitive game would be a really bad developement in the series.

The only pvp I can see happening is two teams of four challenge an arena match at the same time. More than likely with the same equipment arrangement.

Otherwise, pvp will just not work.

Certain MMO version of MH in Japan has Arena PVP. 1 vs 1 Hunter with both hunters having 1 monster as a companion (there is a chance of a monster becoming your arena pet when capturing monsters in a quests). First one to kill the opponents monster wins. The partner monster only attacks the emeny,obviously.

PVP is something that would make Monster Hunter weird,seeing as how mostly hunters team up to help take down monsters.But I understand why someone would want PVP. Frontier has a system where two groups of hunters have a monsters and they have to kill the other group's monster.The problem is the amount of skill for these weapons, they all hit differently, and they all function differently. Not only that, some people actually know some of the monsters move list by heart, making players in pvp rage alot.Usually when i do pvp,i just go on a gathering quest with my friends, and we have switch axe battle to see who can get the most points.

MH isn't about competing against other hunters it's about being part of a team (group) working together to take down a huge monster.

Not everything needs to be competative.
