    Yes, that is correct. Just to clarify, something like Roserade will ONLY count for either Poison OR Grass, not both.

    Round 3 - The DOUBLES Mirror Match Tournament
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Originally hosted by eric the espeon in Apr-Jun 2010

    So I kinda lied last round, saying that Type Restriction was the ultimate test of teambuilding skills.This, in fact, is probably worse. You will be required to post your team here, so it will be known inside and out by both players — the catch is, you'll both be using the same team. By definition, it is therefore impossible to create a team with an advantage over the team your opponent will be using; all you can do is hope that you'll be more comfortable with your team that your opponent will be.

    Specific rules for Round 3:

    • Matches will be best-of-3. The first game will use the team of the player listed first (ie, Audiosurfer or Cease Tick), the second game will use the team of the player listed second (ie, breh or Arcticblast), and the final game — if necessary — will use the host team.
    • Please post your team here in the form of an importable; this saves me trouble in PMing teams back and forth.
    • If using IVs other than 31, please note them.
    • Since both sides are using the same team, you can use any Pokemon and moves you like, so long as they are legal.
    • No crapshoots, ie, no strategies that depend solely on luck (Minimize/Double Team/Thunder Wave/...)
    • Example Crapshoot (open)

    Pairings for Round 3:
    2. @Audiosurfer vs 5. @breh
    16. @Cease Tick vs 6. @Arcticblast

    If an name is underlined they have sent in their team;
    If a name is bolded they have won their match.

    If you remember, please save a replay; this will ensure that both parties kept to the type restrictions and will also provide entertainment :p

    For now, the deadline is 6 days from this post, ie Sep 8, Sunday.
