Approved by Furai, and thanks for the idea for the tournament name.
Double the Power, Double the Arceus, Double the Fun!
Hey guys! If you're not familiar with Mini-Tournaments, it's run just like an actual Smogon tournament
, except it's held in Smogon Metagames subforums. Here are some general facts about Mini-Tournaments:
The first thread/post posted is the sign-ups. During the sign-ups, you post "in".
The Rounds will last exactly 4 days
from the second the round is posted here in the subforum. At the end of the 3 days, any unfinished matches will be coin-flipped and moved to the next round.
All of the Rounds will take place in this thread
, so keep your eyes peeled for when the round is over and the next round has started!
Each mini-tournament will consist of 16, 24, or 32 participants, no more than that, or it stops being mini. First 16 are in for 16- and 24-man tourneys with the last 9 randomized for 24-man tourneys, and the first 20 are in with the last 12 being randomized for 32-man tourneys. Each sign-ups will try to achieve 32 participants, but if it isn't possible, then it will be a 16- or 24-man tourney with the first 16 that signed up in. You may sign up as a substitute after round 1 is posted.
Standard BW2 Ubers
Best of one, single elimination
You may switch your team each round
Each tournament can and probably will have a quirk dealing with the metagame. Tourneys will have weird quirks such as "no weather."
Because most of these tourneys will have weird quirks, please save your logs and be prepared to take a screenshot of the battle should you suspect your opponent of cheating. However, you don't need to save logs and you don't have to submit your teams to whoever is running the mini-tourney.
Any of the above rules are subject to change depending on the tourney.
Prizes include points from the Awards Thread. You will get 5 points for winning, 3 points for being the runner-up, and 2 points each time you get four wins in one of these Mini-Tournaments. Earning points may help you get a badge.
This will be little different to previous mini-tournaments, since this time rather than a simple clause or weather ban, the format of the battles will change only with a twist. To celebrate the success of double battles arriving on Showdown and its popularity, this tournament will be Ubers Doubles
! But to also spice up the rounds in mini-tour fashion, you may also wield dual Arceus
on your team!
Smogon Doubles clauses adjusted to fit this tour:
1) 6 vs 6 instead of 4 vs 4
2) Pokemon default level 100 instead of level 50
3) Sleep Clause ON
4) Item Clause OFF
5) OHKO Clause ON
6) Moody Clause ON
7) Naturally since this is Ubers, the Smogon Doubles Pokemon banlist will be negated for this mini tour, but the following moves are still banned.
8) However you may not use 2 of the same Arceus types on your team.
Ill invite you to check out the Smogon Doubles
thread for some ideas on some powerful and common doubles tactics should you be new to the doubles metagame.
