Monotype Sample Teams

Standard Rules and Clauses
  • Baton Pass Clause: Baton pass is banned
  • Same Type Clause: Pokémon in a team must share a type, both before and after Mega Evolution
  • Sleep Clause Mod: Limit one foe put to sleep
  • Species Clause: Limit one of each Pokémon
  • OHKO Clause: OHKO moves are banned
  • Moody Clause: Moody is banned
  • Evasion Moves Clause: Evasion moves are banned
  • Endless Battle Clause: Forcing endless battles is banned
  • HP Percentage Mod: HP is shown in percentages
General Tournament Rules:
  • Identity: I expect many battles to be completed under alts. This can be bad for tournament security, and thus I will make this clear: If I hear any whispers of identity theft (battling as someone you are not) or proxy battling (helping someone else battle through pm) I will not be pleased and I will take severe actions.
  • Scouting: Next, I do not want to hear anything about counterteaming, at all. Do not complain about it. I also don't want to hear about any blatant scouting. There is a difference between "[user] is known for using Fire-type" and "let me follow [user] around all day to watch all his battles since I am his opponent". I expect a lot of the former and none of the latter. I give permission to all battlers to ask any person spectating their battle to leave if they do not want them watching. Everyone will have access to your replays from earlier rounds though.
  • Timer Clause: As for taking long between moves, if your opponent asks you to hurry up, please oblige. If you are doing a damage calc for a key turn that is one thing, but prolonging every move is suspicious and annoying. Don't do it. Furthermore, Battle Timeout is a rule for a reason. If you run out of time, you lose, simple as that. It does not matter what your opponent says. Do not battle if you think you will have to leave mid battle, and instead reschedule for a better time.
  • Disconnections: Finally, in the case of a disconnect, the decision is in the hands of the player who did not disconnect. The options are: redo the battle move for move, redo the battle with the same teams but different moves, or redo the battle with completely different teams. If the battle was without a doubt over, they may also take the win. Any suspicion that a disconnect was committed on purpose to redo a match may be appealed to me, and if I feel this happened there will be severe consequences, don't do it.

Welp this was the second tournament I've participated in(first was the Mono Generations tour), and I feel like I did pretty well. At the very least I was able to battle some really cool players, and I even started branching out from just Ice and Rock. It does kinda suck that I wasn't able to get as far as I had hoped, and I wasn't playing as well as I could have, but honestly I'm just glad I made it this far. GL to everyone else in the tour.

Oh yeah, and S/O's to Bushtush for his words of support and encouragement: https://prnt.sc/hfa68w

Huh I'm just doing predictions for the post count, no reason to even say that LOL. Wincon has been doing great in the tours he has entered based on that and knowing his skill level, he should beat you(In less hax). :> If you see my predictions as an insult then that's on you being oversenstive. People's predictions are just people's thought on who's gonna win.

It's not insulting to make predictions nor was he even serious about you predicting him to lose. He ignored this comment "Yeah no Wincon will put the luck of this guy in the trash, and smash him clean." I wonder who's actually being oversensitive on this particular prediction particularly when he's made it this far into the current seasonals and actually was the better person to shrug off a direct insult to him

Ok whatever, you were not even involved in this. :) I don't even care lmao and I wasn't being oversenstive LOL. I shrugged off insults that were made to me in predictions also :D Just fuelled me more.

There's a possibility that Moorland and I will need an extension, we're not 100% sure yet, but as of right now our schedules are not lining up. Just giving you the early heads up Leru just in case.
