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.

There are only FOUR rounds left in the tournament, so be sure to plan your point expenditure ahead of time!

Buying Pokémon

Before you play your match each round, you can buy Pokemon at the prices listed below for a certain number of rounds. The value buys you the Pokémon for 3 matches. If you want to buy a Pokémon for 2 matches, it costs 80% (4/5) of the price. 1-use Pokémon are 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! To purchase a Pokemon, send a PM to Earthworm before you play your match for that round stating which Pokemon you want to buy and for how many rounds.

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.

Betting

You will be required to make a bet on yourself against the House every round. 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. These mandatory self bets are not affected by any other bets, or whether or not the match gets played before the deadline.

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. To bet on a match, send a PM to Earthworm listing the winner of that match (and any others you want to bet on). After the round, all the bets you made that were correct will return an amount equal to the pool of bets on that match divided by the correct betters, regardless or whether or not they were eliminated during the round. Bets may be made publicly (in-thread), or privately (by PM). Even private bets, however, will be announced in-thread by Earthworm, but we will not announce the name of the better, only the number of bets on each player in the round.

If you believe we have made a mistake, please PM Earthworm IMMEDIATELY.

*NEW* Comments
Arin is ahead by a very significant margin now that Gouki and Delta 2777 have been eliminated. If he isn't eliminated soon, he will certainly be the player to beat going into the final rounds. Most players seem to be stuck at around the 250 point mark, which I am sure many of you know can sustain a fairly solid team from here on in, but will it be enough to topple those with significantly higher points? Also, there will be a few new Pokemon added to the purchase list next round. Now, let's get to the pairings!

GARCHOMP changed his name again to Lady Bug, so maybe you should change back his name on the match ups.

And lol, he tried scouting my battle against Lakers last round. Oh well no worries, got an ample amount of points to make good teams. Good luck.

I'm sorry Agammemnon that we couldn't battle =(
My PC has some problems since he came back from his holiday. I have to reinstall Windows now and I need new hardware, so I won't have any chances to battle until Saturday at least.
