    The Counterpick Tourney

    How to Join or Host a Tournament

    Introduction:

    In Pokemon, we build our teams based on what we think everyone else will be doing. We have no knowledge (usually) of what our opponents will be using to build our team around. For this tournament, your picks will be based on what your opponent chooses to use.

    Counterpicking rules

    • Both you and your opponent will have to go through picking teams.
    • The person listed first in the matchup will choose the first Pokemon. The second person will then choose 2 Pokemon. Once this is done, the first person picks 2. This is done till you choose 9 Pokemon each. For example:
    • Code:
      <+Earthworm> rotom-w
      <@Steamroll> scizor and landorus
      <+Earthworm> scizor politoed
      <@Steamroll> tyranitar and rotom-w
      <+Earthworm> jirachi mew
      <@Steamroll> jirachi and blissey
      <+Earthworm> ferrothorn gastrodon
      <@Steamroll> tangrowth dragonite
      <+Earthworm> sableye gliscor
      <@Steamroll> alright I'll snag Gliscor too
      
    • This can be done either via Smogon PM or IRC.
    • Both people can pick the same Pokemon.
    • You need to name which specific Rotom forme you plan on using, if you want to use it.
    • You don't need to tell your opponent your EVs, Items, Nature, Moves, ect.
    • If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    General Tournament Rules:
    • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
    • This is a single-battle, 5th generation OU tournament.
    • The banlists for this tournament are the same as for the ladders of the Smogon University server of Pokemon Online.
    • Only sign up if you plan on being active through the whole tournament, as well as being in contact with your opponent.


    Battle Rules:
    • Evasion Clause
    • Sleep Clause
    • OHKO Clause
    • Self-KO Clause
    • Species Clause
    • Strict Damage Clause
    • Timed Battle

    I shouldn't have to give you three a timelimit.


    Matches:

    Eo Ut Mortus vs idiotfrommars
    idiotfrommars vs SoulWind
    SoulWind vs Eo Ut Mortus

    Also can you guys leave the results of the counterpicking and times when you'll play here, perhaps? I'd love to watch.

    Tough one. I'm leaning towards Eo, but IFM or Soulwind could take it as well.

    Good luck to all three of you!

    Eo and I are playing in 15 minutes in Groudon's Grotto if anyone wants to watch.
    EDIT: I beat Eo in a good game.
