Also why is there a team lock? In official Smogon tours you can use a new team every battle.
One reason I can think of is to make the tournament more accessible by not forcing people to create teams for every battle. Yes, I understand that somebody may choose to have the same team for every battle if teams weren't locked, but then they are setting themselves at a rather large disadvantage.
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!)
