Point Buy Tournament II General Tournament Rules Signups Round 1 co-hosted by Earthworm ALL PM'S MUST BE SENT TO EARTHWORM, NOT ME. This event will test not only your skill at battling, but also your predictions, and your ability to build teams under strict guidelines. You will have a budget of ‘Points’ that you will be able to use to ‘Purchase’ Pokémon for use in your team. Not happy with your low Point total? Bet on other matches to try and get some more of those Points you love so much! The Rules This will be a single-elimination tournament Battles MUST be played on Shoddy Battle. Self-KO Clause Only Pokémon UU and below, or Pokémon bought, can be used Sleep Clause Freeze Clause Evasion Clause OHKO Clause Species Clause Battle Timeout must be ON No Scouting The Point System Each entrant will be given a starting grant of 300 Points. Over the course of the tournament, you will be using those Points to buy Pokémon to use. The Points can also be used for betting on matches, both your own, and those of others. Keep in mind that this will be a long tournament, though, and so don’t blow all your points at the start! Those that successfully manage their Points will have a large advantage in this competition. Buying Pokémon As the tournament progresses, there will be opportunities for you to purchase Pokémon from the OU and BL tiers. Every Pokémon in the OU and BL tiers has been assigned a Point value, as seen below. The value listed is for buying a Pokémon for 3 matches. If you want to buy a Pokémon for 2 matches, it only costs 80% (4/5) of the price. 1-use Pokémon are a mere half of the price listed. Keep in mind that a 3-match Pokémon bought before round 2 will expire after round 4, whether or not you used it in all of your matches! Prices These are based upon the usage statistics on the Standard Ladder in June. They will remain fixed throughout the tournament. All UU Pokemon may be used without being purchased.

You must make a bet of exactly 50 points on yourself each round. This is to ensure you always have at least 100 points going into a round. You may also choose to bet on matches you are not a part of, if you like. First of all, all bets made on other matches must be exactly 50 Points, no less, no more. When you bet on a match, you will pick who you think will win the match. After the round, all the bets from which you made points out of, will give you a certain amount of points. Bets may be made publicly (in-thread), or privately (by PM). Even private bets, however, will be announced in-thread by Earthworm or myself, but we will not announce the name of the better, just the amount, and on who.
