    Round 1 - Deadline: October 4, 2008

    Earthworm vs Taylor
    Maniaclyrasist vs Loki
    Fabbles vs Gouki
    Arin vs JabbaTheGriffin

    Play games in UU, OU, and Uber. Best of the 3 advances. Smogon Tour rules apply.

    To reiterate:

    * Garchomp is banned from OU
    * Move Tutor enabled moves and new Pokemon brought by Platinum are not allowed

    Earthworm (Ubers, UU) vs Taylor (OU) - I want Taylor to win, but I have a feeling Earthworm will.
    Maniaclyrasist (Ubers, UU) vs Loki (OU) - Can't discount Loki but Maniac is on fire, and I'm unsure of Loki's real quality in other metagames.
    Fabbles (Ubers, UU) vs Gouki (OU) - Fabbles just keeps winning shit.
    Arin (UU) vs JabbaTheGriffin (Ubers, OU) - Jabba is quite good all round and I reckon he'll take it.

    Good luck guys!

    according to Havak people seem to be good at either "Ubers and UU" or just "OU." Better start on Ubers and UU then. Don't want to lose when I'm in this 6 years in the future :/

    Earthworm vs Taylor - Tough match to call, but Earthworm has throughly trounced me both times I've played him, so I have to hand it to him here.
    Maniaclyrasist vs Loki - Going with the name I hear more.
    Fabbles vs Gouki - Predicting the other 2 Pouwer Boys, so I might as well stick with Gouki.
    Arin vs JabbaTheGriffin - Jabba's supposed to be really versatile, which is pretty important here.

    Earthworm vs Taylor - This is tough to call, but Taylor performs well in OU and Ubers, but that OU battle will be one to watch. Go Tutor!
    Maniaclyrasist vs Loki - Go Tutor! Loki is pretty good though.
    Fabbles vs Gouki - Fabbles kicked my ass several times, Gouki is aight cause he's Canadian but still...
    Arin vs JabbaTheGriffin - Jabba ftw, but Arin looks to be the fave in UU.

    Little predictions:
    Earthworm
    (Ubers/UU) vs Taylor.
    Maniaclyrasist (Ubers/UU) vs Loki
    Fabbles (Ubers/UU) vs Gouki
    Arin (UU) vs JabbaTheGriffin (Ubers/OU)

    I'm not one to interrupt, but I am questioning the ban on Garchomp for this tourney. Garchomp has been deemed uber, but the whole tourney was played with Chomp in mind until now. It seems unclear whether this round of the tourney is facing the present or the past, as it appears to me to be a bit contradictory when Platinum moves are banned and Garchomp being banned as well.

    But good luck to all in the tourney!

    Earthworm vs Taylor - he's proved himself time and time again, a worthy "Pouwer boi" or whatever.
    Maniaclyrasist vs Loki - superior knowledge of multiple tiers leads me to believe he can win this
    Fabbles vs Gouki - gouki is cool and all, but fabbles has really been kicking ass lately, in both ubers and ou, and uu to an extent, and of course is the "rags to riches" story of coming from randomness to the top 8
    Arin vs JabbaTheGriffin - this is tough to call seeing as I've never even seen either of them play at all. arin seems like a cocky asshole, but he's gotta have some reason to be cocky so why not (aka I"m rooting for jabba but have no idea). everyone's a winner!

    Earthworm vs Taylor - Haven't seen either play unfortunately, but I've heard Ew is perfect.
    Maniaclyrasist vs Loki - Played Loki and he was really good but I've seen Maniac in tiers other than OU, makes me think he'll win
    Fabbles vs Gouki- Ionno, Fabbles has been winning like crazy, but Gouki is great too :o
    Arin vs JabbaTheGriffin- Played him too and he's great

    Good luck to all the participants!!!

    You'd do much better to just play by the fucking rules I laid out rather than continue to question them. Disqualification is the other option; your choice.

    I don't see why you couldn't just answer it since i'm obviously not the only person who thinks this way but whatever. I'll play Loki later today.

    Earthworm vs Taylor - Heh, i'm rooting for both, I don't mind who wins, both are awesome guys.
    Maniaclyrasist vs Loki - I just feel Maniac will win out here, OU will be close.
    Fabbles vs Gouki - Fabbles won a lot recently, I can see him winning UU and Uber.
    Arin vs JabbaTheGriffin - When Jabba's playing well, he's awesome. I would like to see him win :)

    I won 2-1 against Loki. I won OU and Ubers, while he won UU.

    Betting on either Earthworm / Maniaclyrasist (who are probably the best DP players in the metagame at this moment) to win the Tour, but gouki could spark an upset if he has good team matchups.

    I won both UU and Uber. So no need for OU. Good game Jabba.

    And yes people only predicted against me because they didn't know me because I'm not very popular on Smogon forums. But you can't blame them.
