Is it allowed to change teams between matches?
No, it's a series of three back to back battle. The only thing that can change after each match is the three Pokemon you take in out of your party of six. You can make adjustments to your team between rounds if you wish.

So, that's how it works. Thanks! (way to show off my noobness. lol)

In other news, Nidokingking and I have scheduled our battle to friday 7pm GMT-8.

Hi, me and scizor are sheduling. I need to ask one question though.

As my internet is unreliable (I'm in Switzerland), is it allowed for us to have the battle on PS (I would only need this for Round 1), so that I can rejoin in the case of a DC?

This is a wifi tournament. All matches are to be held over wifi.

My opponent "quit smogon" and disabled PMs and VMs. I haven't seen him on IRC in a while. If I don't get a hold of him by Tuesday could I have a sub?

Sorry, due to my heavy schedule, I will not be able to make it for round two (and possibly not round 3 either), so I am going to have to drop out now, so I may allow another competitor to take my place.

Going to VM Stormfront now, hopefully I can avenge that VGC 98 loss (So much Hax -__-)

EDIT- He gave me the win via VM, I'll post a link if no one believes me
