    Smogon Tour Season Nine Finals

    Congratulations to all Smogon Tour finalists, it is an incredible accomplishment to have made it this far. Each of you will now compete for the coveted title of Smogon Tour champion! Below you will find the 16 man, single elimination bracket that indicates your opponent. The two of you will be responsible for contacting one another and setting up a mutually agreeable time to play your "best of three" match which must include 1 OU game, 1 UU game, and 1 Uber game... each of which will be governed by the standard rules of the Smogon Tour which can be found here.

    There is one exception to the standard rules; as of this moment, the recognized tiers of the Smogon Tour are FROZEN.
    The ban lists for the OU and UU metagames are included at the bottom of this post. As the rules state, Arceus is the only Pokemon banned from Ubers.

    The player with the lower seed will choose which game (OU/UU/Uber) to play first. The player with the higher seed will choose the game (OU/UU/Uber) to play second. To be clear, in the case of a No. 1 seed against a No. 16 seed, the number 1 seed gets to pick the first game. In the case of top 16 players who were tied in the rankings, seeds were assigned randomly.

    Please report results in this thread.

    The deadline for the finals is ASAP. Don't make me kick anyone's ass.


    I am hopeful that all matches will be played speedily... please do not wait simply because you have time to do so. However, do NOT play your next opponent until the round has officially been posted even if you know who it is. I want to give people a chance to make predictions and and discuss the progress of the tournament. I also do not want one side of the bracket to advance faster than another.

    I'm only going to make one lot of predictions throughout the finals and see how I go.

    R1
    6A9 Ace Matador vs Aqualouis - Have only seen Aqualouis play UU and Ace is really good in UU
    Deep Thought vs xtrashine - I don't know xtrashine at all, and Deep Thought seemed very solid when I played him in Ubers
    Abutorn vs Kevin Garrett - I know Abutorn is good at UU, and I don't know how solid KG is in Ubers
    LonelyNess vs Zak91 - From what I've seen, Zak91 is pretty predictable and LonelyNess is the type of person that capitalises on that
    DarkLucario vs _Rewer_ - I've seen DarkLucario and I haven't seen _Rewer_
    imperfectluck vs Loki - Unless imperfectluck can win Ubers (and I've not seen ipl do very well in DP Ubers), I expect Loki to win
    panamaxis vs Conflict - panamaxis is most likely more experienced in UU and OU, and might be able to win Ubers too
    Atticus vs Lady Bug - Lady Bug might manage to pull a surprise upset, but I think Atticus has this with OU and Ubers

    R2
    6A9 Ace Matador vs Deep Thought - I expect Ace to win UU and probably lose one of OU and Ubers but win the other
    Abutorn vs LonelyNess - LonelyNess should take UU, and I think Abutorn will take Ubers. Predicting LonelyNess to get some (not necessarily decisive) luck in OU
    DarkLucario vs Loki - Loki in UU and OU
    panamaxis vs Atticus - Revenge for BotW, predicting panamaxis takes UU and OU

    Semis
    6A9 Ace Matador vs LonelyNess - I think this will come down to UU after Ace Matador wins Ubers and loses OU, and Ace Matador will take UU
    Loki vs panamaxis - I think this will come down to OU, with Loki winning Ubers and panamaxis winning UU

    Finals
    6A9 Ace Matador vs panamaxis - Ace Matador takes UU and panamaxis takes OU, then panamaxis gets some luck in Ubers that makes his victory easier than it might have been otherwise

    Good luck everyone!

    I am in Deep Thought about Kevin Garrett in relation to his Lonelyness because I swear he is meditating bad thoughts like a DarkLucario, but lucario isn't really a god unlike Loki so its alright. In any case, most of these prediction are pretty much 'duh'.

    6A9 Ace Matador vs Aqualouis - UU and OU sweep
    Deep Thought vs xtrashine - Deep thought in Ubers and UU
    Abutorn vs Kevin Garrett - OU and Ubers
    LonelyNess vs Zak91 - The tour winner because he has a secret weapon. LN takes UU and OU.
    DarkLucario vs _Rewer_ - Ubers and OU prolly
    imperfectluck vs Loki - UU and Ubers for the boss
    panamaxis vs Conflict - UU and OU.
    Atticus vs Lady Bug - Ubers and OU victories for doggy.

    R2
    6A9 Ace Matador vs Deep Thought - UU and Ubers most likely, don't think this will go 3.
    Abutorn vs LonelyNess - Again, UU and OU victories for the eventual winner.
    DarkLucario vs Loki - Loki in UU and OU to avenge last year
    panamaxis vs Atticus - Atticus in OU and Ubers

    Semis
    6A9 Ace Matador vs LonelyNess - Provided LN listens to me, he can easily beat AM in UU, and probably OU as well.
    Loki vs Atticus - Both these players suck; Loki because Atticus can't make a UU team, and I think Loki wins OU.

    Finals
    LonelyNess vs Loki - I will do everything in my power to prevent Loki from winning.

    Almost all of these could go the opposite way with small amounts of luck or prediction, though. Good luck to everybody.

    6A9 Ace Matador vs Aqualouis - UU will be the closest, but...
    OU - AM / UU - AM / Ubers - AM
    Deep Thought vs xtrashine - Should come down to UU, in which Deep Thought has a slight advantage...
    OU - Xtrashine / UU - Deep Thought / Uber - Deep Thought
    Abutorn vs Kevin Garrett - Should come down to Ubers...
    OU - KG / UU - Abutorn / Ubers - KG
    LonelyNess vs Zak91 - Should come down to Ubers...
    OU - Zak / UU - LN / Uber - Zak91
    DarkLucario vs _Rewer_ - Rewer could win a UU or OU but I dont see it
    OU - DL / UU - DL / Uber - DL
    imperfectluck vs Loki - Should come down to OU... Loki is a little bigger there
    OU - Loki / UU - ipl / Uber - Loki
    panamaxis vs Conflict - Ubers and OU should be close... but I think pana manages to win one of them
    OU - panamaxis / UU - panamaxis / Uber - Conflict
    Atticus vs Lady Bug - All three matches will be close... I'm thinking it comes down to Ubers... poor Atticus
    OU - Atticus / UU - Lady Bug / Uber - Lady Bug

    Round 2:
    Ace Matador vs Deep Thought - Ubers will be close but Deep Thought should win... but I think AM will pull through OU and UU
    OU - AM / UU - AM / Uber - Deep Thought
    Kevin Garrett vs Zak91 - Comes down to UU I think...
    OU - KG / UU - KG / Uber - Zak
    Loki vs DarkLucario - Loki wins in an extremely close match... could go either way all three games.
    OU - Loki / UU - Loki / Uber - DL
    panamaxis vs Lady Bug - Another close one
    OU - panamaxis / UU - Lady Bug / Uber - panamaxis

    Round 3:
    Ace Matador vs Kevin Garrett - Kevin should take OU, but AM is very good at UU and Ubers
    OU - KG / UU - AM / Uber - AM
    Loki vs panamaxis - Another extremely close match for Loki.
    OU - Loki / UU - panamaxis / Uber - Loki

    Final:
    Ace Matador vs Loki - Should be a great final... if Loki finds a way to win UU or Ubers I think he will win it.
    OU - Loki / UU - Loki / Uber - AM


    Congrats to everyone who made it. Enjoy your matches!
