    The Easter Egg Tournament

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Egg #1 Egg #2 Egg #3 Egg #4 Egg #5 Egg #6

    Introduction
    In this tournament, players will be able to test and play with very different and varied teams every single round. They will have to adjust their teambuilding skills to simple, precise guidelines, all in a true easter spirit. To do well on this tournament, you must be an active user, a good teambuilder, and a player who is able to adjust their playstyle in any sudden situation.

    Special Rules
    • Every round, you will be given a choice of 3-6 eggs. You must pick ONE and PM it to me (e.g. Egg #1, Egg #2...). Each egg has a teambuilding guideline that you must follow, usually involving a Pokemon's stats, tier, usage, region, colour... I will respond to your PM by giving you this guideline. To make things easier for you, I will make a list of the eligible Pokemon that you can use under that guideline.
    • You must send me your choice before the 5th day into the round, otherwise you will be subbed out.
    • You cannot change your egg after you've PMed it to me.
    • You cannot reveal the content of the egg you've chosen to the general public.

    Rules
    • Make sure to follow the tournament rules if you are joining.
    • This is a single elimination, best of one tournament.
    • This is a BW2 OU tournament, which means that everything classified as "uber" is prohibited.
    • Battles must be played in Pokemon Showdown or in Pokemon Online.
      Rounds will normally take around 1.5 to 2 weeks (as every round requires teambuilding).

    Clauses
    • Sleep Clause: If a player has already put an opposing Pokémon to sleep using a sleep inducing move and that Pokémon is still sleeping due to that sleep inducing move, the player cannot put another opposing Pokémon to sleep using a sleep inducing move.
    • Species Clause: A player cannot have two of the same species of Pokémon on their team, based on the National Pokedex Number. For example, a player cannot have two Koffing on his or her team.
    • Evasion Clause: Players cannot use Double Team or Minimize in any of their Pokémon's movesets.
    • OHKO Clause: Players cannot use Horn Drill, Guillotine, Sheer Cold, or Fissure in any of their Pokémon's movesets.
    • Timer Clause: If a player exhausts the timer, he/she loses.

    Responded to every single egg PM so far. If you have any questions about your guideline, just ask it to me by PM. Really interesting choices, two eggs have been chosen A LOT while two other eggs have not been chosen at all!

    BTW, I'm not requesting for you to PM logs/teams because firstly it's timeconsuming enough to send/reply these eggs and also keep up with tournament wins/activities plus if you were by chance sending a team that is not appropiate to your deadline you are just showing complete disrespect to both your opponent and me, as I took some time making these guidelines fun and balanced as well as looking up eligible Pokemon. I trust that you guys will build appropiate teams from your eggs to keep this tourney as fun as possible!

    Second round of eggs updated!

    BTW guys, make sure you read the rules carefully. There have been some people who have either PM'ed me more than one egg or asked me to pm to them the eggs. You must pm me the egg that you would like. Otherwise, i'm happy about the egg PM's! Keep them coming!
