    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!

    Winners' Bracket:
    Pilocus vs. Homsar
    SSBM Roy vs. Obi
    Loki vs [kd8]otome
    Mizuno vs. zerowing
    spies vs. Giga Punch
    Groudon80 vs. darkbolt
    Sandslash vs. Dragados
    Warthog vs. Carl

    Losers' Bracket:
    jrrrrrrr vs. Mekkah
    Hipno vs. GreenPikachu
    Bulblax vs. Ace777
    blackshellbowser vs. Flub
    Roy vs. Judgement
    Surgo vs. goborage
    Jackal vs. Sk
    JabbaTheGriffin vs. Spaced


    You have until the clock hits midnight EDT on July 5th (that's the transition to July 6th) to get your battles done. 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

    Just a heads up for everyone now, especially Surgo and Warthog, that I won't be back home until like July 5th at night I think. Might be later than that even. I'll try and be active late tonight/tomorrow night since I did bring my computer and the hotel does have wifi and I figure I won't be doing family stuff at 10 or 11 at night. After that I'll be at my grandma's and she doesn't have internet.

    So yeah I'll try and catch you tonight/tomorrow night Warthog.

    I dated with jrrrr for a few days back then forgot about it and wasn't on NetBattle. Sorry for that. It'd help if you'd add me to MSN or drop by on mIRC as I can usually be found there. A Smogon PM always works too.
