    Back to the Basics is a really old-style double-elimination RBY tournament: everything legally obtainable is allowed. That includes Mewtwo (and Mew). That includes Double Team. We're going to battle it out like it's 1999...literally (only with Netbattle instead of the PBS).

    Other rules of note:
    * Sleep clause must be enabled.
    * Self-KO clause must be enabled.
    * Species clause is in effect.
    * 6-on-6, no Stadium mode (Stadium didn't even come out until 2000).
    * No Surf Pikachu/Raichu or Amnesia Golduck, as these were from Stadium.
    * PP Ups must be on, unless both players wish to have them off.
    * Beyond that, anything goes!

    The bracket for the first round, thanks to random.org, is:
    Dragados vs. Gavisi
    [kd8]otome vs. blackshellbowser
    homsar vs. Flub
    Hipno vs. SSBM Roy
    zerowing vs. goborage
    Jackal vs. Pilocus
    Sk vs. Loki
    Spaced vs. Carl
    darkbolt vs. Roy
    Bulblax vs. spies
    Surgo vs. Sandslash
    Ace777 vs. Giga Punch
    jrrrrrrr vs. Warthog
    Groudon80 vs. GreenPikachu
    JabbaTheGriffin vs. Mizuno
    Judgement vs. Obi

    You have until the clock hits midnight EDT on June 30th (that's the transition to July 1st) to get your battles done. If there are a lot left by then I will give an extension, but get your battles done ASAP: I have absolutely no patience for tournament lagging in a 32-man double elimination tournament and if I find you at fault I will see about getting you banned from entering future tournaments.

    If you're having trouble getting on Smogon, use Pokerealm (which I am sadly banned from because Norulz is a coober). Here are their IPs if the registry goes down:
    Smogon: 68.36.110.112
    Pokerealm: nb.pokerealm.net

    PM me if you feel you can't do it and need a sub.

    Okay, that's all. Have fun!

    Don't worry about it, by a lot I mean, like...a lot of honest people.

    Also PMed Sandslash, we'll be battling tomorrow. Can anyone beat us by battling earlier?

    in typical gp style, he quit at 2-1. pretty insane game though. at first, my mew ch'd him with +6 atk and then i did min damage leaving him at 1% and then lost the speed tie and missed stoss. then, it was my mewtwo vs his dting mewtwo. i hit the first and ch'd, and then won the speed tie again and ch'd again.

    haha, that was fun. gg

    Lost to Dragados, but it was an epic match. I swear my Mewtwo had something like a 50% FP rate.
