    Hello girls and (mostly) boys, welcome to the final tour season before copies of Pokemon X&Y become available at stores near you! It feels like last season's winner was only crowned yesterday, but Smogon Tour 16 is fast-approaching and will begin on Friday, September 6th. As with previous seasons, this tour will be in the format of ADV OU, DPP OU, and BW2 OU and will last for a total of 9 weeks. Tours will mostly be hosted on Groudon's Grotto Pokemon Online server, maintained by our beloved Earthworm, who has officially announced his return to Pokemon in generation 6 after hearing news of MegaAmpharos' arrival. There are no time changes this season, meaning Friday, Saturday, and Sunday tours will still occur at 6 PM, 4 PM, and 2 PM Eastern time, respectively.

    Will we witness Ojama make another run for the #1 spot despite claiming to have retired the 'ole PokeBoots? Who will be caught asking for wins during the final week in an attempt to sneak their way into the top 16 for a chance to win the coveted 16×16 png? All these questions and more will be answered in due time, so don't miss out of the action and make sure to tell your friends to jump in on the fun!

    Good luck to those who decide to compete! Visit the Smogon Tour website to learn more about how the tournament works.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I have a public announcement. If the aforementioned asking of wins in the last week of the prestigious Smogon Tour does occur and the user in question of using such cheap tactics is Blooregard Q. Kazoo, you must surely allow him passage into the Top 16 for he has put his blood, sweat, and tears into this tournament. Here are logs explaining his disdain over not achieving the beloved pink trophy yet.

    the Heartfelt explanation (open)
    [5/29/2013 10:56:48 PM] Mihnea: me and tour have a special relationship
    [5/29/2013 10:57:17 PM] quintin oO: why
    [5/29/2013 10:57:27 PM] quintin oO: because you always are a blooser at it?
    [5/29/2013 10:57:34 PM] Mihnea: because i've done more work than anyone for the tournament
    [5/29/2013 10:57:45 PM] Mihnea: administration and playing wise
    [5/29/2013 10:58:30 PM] Mihnea: i've won 7 smogon tours lol
    [5/29/2013 10:58:38 PM] Mihnea: that's more than everyone except 3 people
    [5/29/2013 10:59:34 PM] quintin oO: heist wins like every week
    [5/29/2013 10:59:36 PM] quintin oO: lol
    [5/29/2013 10:59:52 PM] Mihnea: he hasn't won more than me
    [5/29/2013 11:00:15 PM] quintin oO: dam this nigga has the stats!
    [5/29/2013 11:00:19 PM] quintin oO: have you ever gotten finals?
    [5/29/2013 11:00:26 PM] Mihnea: of playoffs?
    [5/29/2013 11:00:28 PM] Mihnea: no, just semis
    [5/29/2013 11:01:54 PM] quintin oO: ah
    [5/29/2013 11:02:01 PM] quintin oO: it's alright, next season i'll win for you
    [5/29/2013 11:02:50 PM] Mihnea: if u think i'm bsing about tours
    [5/29/2013 11:02:55 PM] Mihnea: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ar9qmM1YVh1-dGQ4emY5Sm5ONXBqZnVDQ293OHpienc#gid=2
    [5/29/2013 11:03:29 PM] quintin oO: you would never lie to me ofc
    [5/29/2013 11:04:49 PM] Mihnea: heist has 3
    [5/29/2013 11:04:49 PM] Mihnea: lol


    That is all. Have a nice day.

    win, /win/. n. A successful result in a contest, conflict, bet, or other endeavor; a victory.
    Ex.: McMeghan had an easy win against BKC in the Smogon Tour 14 finals.
