Welcome to the Eighth SMW Central Pokémon Showdown Tournament. I will be your host, and this time we'll be playing Balanced Hackmons! As you probably know already, Balanced Hackmons is a format where you can set almost any move, or ability to any pokémon, and you can even use mega pokémon without their evolution stone. As you can guess in this format it is harder to predict what your opponent will do because they have a large pool of move and abilities to choose from.
If you feel lost within all this choice, you can check the following to help you build your team:
You must PM your team in plaintext format to System, to do that, open your team and without opening any Pokémon, click on the import/export button at the top, then copy the text.
Once you sent your team, you may modify it until your first battle. If you wish to do so, you must PM System again with your new team.
Once you fought your first battle you may not modify your team anymore, doing so will result in disqualification.
The tournament will start on 09/16/2019. If you did not PM your team before this date, you will be disqualified.
The tournament will follow the double elimination format. This means if you lose once, you will be sent to the losers bracket for a second chance.
Rounds will be decided on best of three matches.
Battles must be fought in Pokémon Showdown under the Balanced Hackmons format. Otherwise they will be invalid.
You must post the replays of your battles or they will be invalid. To save a replay, click in the Upload and share replay button and the copy the link.
If you leave in the middle of a battle or surrender, you will lose that battle, but not the round.
If you forfeit the tournament or do not show up to your battle you will be disqualified immediately (you won't be sent to the losers bracket) and may be banned from joining future tournaments depending on the situation.
Because hosting the event gives me no advantage, and because previous hosts have entered their own tournaments, I will be participating.
