    Hello friends, starting a tournament that I'd like to be long running. I'm looking for 8 slots as of right now, but I'm hoping to expand it if it is successful.

    Rules:
    1. The format will be OU. Anything that is banned in OU is banned in this tournament.
    2. The team construction will depend on a draft format. The draft format will be a snake draft. (Meaning the 1st pick of the first round will pick last in the 2nd round and then 1st in the 3rd round, etc etc).
    3. When a Pokemon is picked, that Pokemon cannot be picked again.
    4. The tournament style (as of right now) is 2 divisions of 4, and a round robin. The top 2 teams of the divisions will proceed to the elimination round.
    5. The semifinals of the elimination round will be the top 2 teams of the divisions facing each other (A division championship game if you will). The winners of that will face each other in a best of 3 finals.
    6. A player will be permitted 3 trades for the whole tournament. After the round robin is over, trading is over. No trading for draft picks.
    7. A player will be permitted 2 Free Agent transactions. The free agent pool will consist of the OU pool and under. If you pick up any pokemon you must release a Pokemon. Anyone can pick up that Pokemon that you release. Like the trade rule, the free agent rule is also not in effect after the round robin is over.
    8. All transactions, whether it is a trade or a free agent, must be confirmed by me before any roster changes are made, via private message.
    9. Any rule is subject to be added or changed. You are responsible for keeping up to date if you are entered into this tournament.

    Draft Chat (Please join if you are in the tourney):
    Note that participating in this tournament will mean a temporary commitment. I don't intend to rush the process, however, please be courteous. Making picks right now have a 6 hour time limit, and that limit will be enforced after all the players have signed up. If you fail to uphold that, you will be skipped and put at the end of the round, and a 2nd skip will be put at the end of the draft. Thank you, and I hope you will all consider!

    Sure, signed you up. You have the 2nd pick and you are in the White Division.

    The draft will begin as soon as we have 8 members, then I will set a starting time.

    It's a draft, yes.

    I planned on hosting the draft via PM and this thread, but if any of you have any sufficient alternatives, I'm all ears.
