Hello everyone and welcome to this year's Pokémon tounament! This year I'm going to be with my good pal Packy. This year, the tournament will be Generation VII only. Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon are fair game.

Rules and Information

Format


  • This tournament will be Swiss-style like last year. This means that even if you lose a round, you can still play! This is to ensure everyone has fun and so that everyone has the same amount of play time in this tournament.
  • Rounds will be best-of-three. This means the first to win two matches wins.
  • This will be a Singles tournament. If there is enough time, we will have a separate Doubles tournament after the Singles tourney has concluded.
  • Rounds will last five days. You will have that time to plan and have your match with your opponent.
  • Pokémon will automatically be set to Level 50. If you're over or under Level 50, they will automatically be set.
  • This tournament will be handled through Challonge, and we will provide a link when the first round is about to start.

Restrictions

  • No duplicate Pokémon on the same team (i.e there won't be 5 Ludicolo's on the same team).
  • Alolan Pokémon makes this complicated, but we just want one unique Pokémon for each slot of your team. For example:
    -2 of the same Alolan Pokémon (i.e 2 Alolan Ninetales) is not allowed.
    -Having a slot for an Alolan Pokémon and the same Pokémon is not allowed (i.e a Regular Ninetales and an Alolan Ninetales on the same team).
    -Having 2 or more different Alolan Pokémon is okay (i.e an Alolan Ninetales and an Alolan Marowak).
  • You must have the same team for the whole tourney. You may have a separate team for Doubles when that happens, but once you send us your team, you have to stay with it.
  • No duplicate items on Pokémon on the same team. For example, if you have an Absol and a Flygon, they can't both have Leftovers.
  • No Mega Evolutions and No Z-Moves. We felt that it would be more balanced this way, as there is a possibility someone doesn't have all Z-Crystals, etc. We want it to be fair.
  • The moves Swagger and Flatter are not allowed for being unsportsmanly and frustrating. Likewise, all Evasion-boosting moves are banned for being overly luck-based and difficult to counter without a forced switch-out move. Evasion-boosting abilities and items are still fine.
  • I would like to keep the NO hacked Pokémon that was set into motion last year. This is a tournament that is meant to be for fun. If you want to have perfect Pokémon that's fine, but keep them legit. If you are found out to have hacked Pokémon you will be disqualified and may be subject to harsher discipline from the Awards Staff.
  • The following Pokémon are banned:
    Articuno
    Zapdos
    Moltres
    Mewtwo

Sign ups are now closed! Please send us your teams by Monday, June 19th. We don't need much, just the Pokemon, their abilities, moves, and held items. If we have received your team your name will be in blue in the OP. Please remember to provide your Friend Code and things like that as well if you have not done so.

Hey all! A quick reminder that your teams are due by tomorrow, Monday, June 19th! There are still a few of you that have not sent us your teams, so please do that as soon as you can. There are also a few of you that we are still awaiting some information from (check the sign-up post) - please plop that here in this thread as soon as possible! We're super excited to get this tournament underway in a few days!! <3

Hey everyone! Meta Knight and I have decided to push back the start of this tournament until Friday, June 23rd, to allow people to get their information and teams to us. However, that is officially our hard deadline - we will not be pushing the start of this tournament back anymore than that.

At this time, we are also accepting replacements as well, in case anyone drops out at any given time! If you are interested in signing-up as a replacement, please go ahead and post and let us know (along with your information and teams)! To those who we are still awaiting information and teams from, please get that to us by Friday, June 23rd!

Yeah, we're really sorry about that! We're finalizing some stuff like our pairings and we are waiting on one more team before we can get underway. I will alert everyone though that we will be starting tomorrow and you guys should get yourself ready; we have a replacement lined up already and we'll get underway tomorrow!
