Pokémon Tourney #9 - Over

New players don't have to build their own teams when several sample teams exist.

As a DOU main, this should be EZ money.

Also why is there a team lock? In official Smogon tours you can use a new team every battle.

Literally this is the reason why. Honestly people may not be willing to change their team every round if they're allowed too since often it's too much work and time wasted on a team that's one-time use. Most of us have works or have to study and barely have free time to make one team, let alone change it every round to ensure no one tries to snipe and counter-team you.

Tho, if people really want it to change then you could open a poll and let them vote. Even if it's a rule that's been set since the first tournament it can be changed just like the format went from single to double elimination. (Whenever or not i liked that change.. well that's another story)

-------------------------------------------
I really wanted to come back to Pokémon, but honestly i have a quite busy schedule nowadays and i just won't be able to make a good team in time.

Good luck to everyone who joined, tho!

(And i'm glad to see some familiar faces coming back to these type of events!)


It's time to be the very best!

Bracket on Challonge


You have just under two weeks, to Saturday the 12th of February 19:00 UTC to complete your Round 1 and Losers Round 1 battles. I'll update the bracket as I see results come in. If we're all done quicker than that, then we can move forward and I'll rethink the timespan for the next phase, etc.


Remember!

One of you from the battle must post the videos here and who one, it's best of 3! It's up to you to liase with your opponent when you battle, so pls communicate!

can testify that sample teams are quite rad. especially in these tournaments where we'll all be learning each others' teams from replays regardless!

I've mentioned this on Discord, but mentioning it here. Due to Vivian Darkbloom's ban, qantuum automatically wins their Round 1 battle, and dragonfan96 automatically wins their Losers Round 1 battle.

I managed to win 2-0 against rudeguy somehow

Appologies for the offline replays, I downloaded them by mistake
Every dream is but another reality, never forget…

I won 2-0...

It's time to be the very best... again. Round 2

Bracket on Challonge


Time for Round 2. You have again 2 weeks until 26/02 19:00 UTC to complete your Round 2 and R2 Losers battles.


Runic_Rain and Mohamad20ZX: You have your R1 Losers battle outstanding still! Seen as it's a losers bracket battle and we don't need you in Round 2 yet, you have very short window to get this done. If you don't have it done by the time the main bracket battles are done here, you're out... Please do it!
Lost 0-2 to FrozenQuills, who has the cooler ice team. How foolish of me to think I could win with an ice team against the guy literally called FrozenQuills...
