    SATURDAY, MAY 23

    Hey Pokemon fans! With summer approaching, it is time to start gearing up for the eighth season of the fabulous Smogon Tour! This season will progress much like the one before it in the OU/UU/Uber format. Please make sure to review all rules and procedures on the Smogon Tour section of the site.

    The schedule will be the same as the past. Two tours per week at the following times:

    Saturdays: 8 pm Eastern
    Sundays: 2 pm Eastern


    We are also cooking up some surprises for this particular season that may earn you some extra points... so be on the lookout for that!

    The first week will kick-off on SATURDAY, MAY 23. Mark your calendars! Feel free to use this thread to ask any questions or just to voice your excitement.

    SATURDAY, MAY 23

    Hopefully my timezone doesn't clash with this too much so I can give it my best shot.

    Thank you for getting this sorted so quickly, Aeolus.

    Looking forwards to hopefully not basing all my chances on the last two weeks like last time!

    See, I always want to join in the fun but I don't know crap about UU or ubers. Maybe I should investigate a bit more this next 10 days.

    Rooting for VIL, goofball or Loki to become the first player to 3 trophies!

    I hope I can actually play this time around...my schedule has never really been conducive to the tour =\

    Damn, was hoping this wouldn't start till mid-late summer. I still need to familiarize myself with UU and Ubers, especially since I don't think I can make the first OU date, lulz. I promised Gouki I'd win this one though :P

    I thought these were going to start mid-summer. Better start learning Ubers!

    I'm hoping I'll be able to do well in some of the rounds in season 8.

    Nope, I just miscalculated how EST correlated to GMT, but I've got it all sorted now.

    Looking forward to entering this.
