    I've moved this thread to the Wi-Fi Tournaments subforum.

    Since as far as I know, this hasn't been approved by one of my fellow wi-fi moderators, it doesn't look like you've seen the Wi-Fi Tournaments rules, so you might want to take a look at those.

    As a wi-fi moderator, I have a few questions/concerns before I sign off on this tournament.

    1) I'm not a fan of requiring youtube accounts for tournament entry. There are a number of players who'd be fine participants who don't have youtube accounts, and there's the ability to save battle videos for sharing the battles. The youtube format concerns me from the advertising perspective.

    2) What battle mode is this tournament? Singles, doubles, triples, rotation? How many Pokemon are sent in? We aren't all OU folks here, so things aren't assumed to be singles.

    3) I think monotype is a cool premise, so if the above concerns are addressed, I'll be happy to sign off on this.

    Did I forget to address anything else? And can I change the thread name to "Pokemasta's Monotype Wi-Fi Tourney"

    One other thing I noticed is the team PM currently is conditional on sign-up. Players may want some time to build a team without worrying if people will take their type. I leave this one up to you but I recommend giving folks a chance to strategize since I'm not sure how common monotype teams are.

    The new name is totally fine, especially since the old name isn't connected to the tournament anymore.

    And with that you have moderator approval!

    Also, I'm considering signing up myself. Stay tuned.

    Ok thanks! That will be changed and should I allow one pokemon switch each round?

    I don't really want to have to to that but nobody is signing up. Just ask around so we can have a full 16 person tournament.
