    Welcome to the LC open, dear trainer! After fighting your way through the other lower tiers, you've stumbled upon a place relatively different from what you've experienced so far in the Grand Slam: a world where your Pokemon have been taken back in time to their earlier years at a mere level 5 to duke it out against countless other cute and cuddly baby 'mons. I wish the best of luck in the final frontier of the Smogon Grand Slam - may all your Brave Birds crit and your Hi Jump Kicks hit!

    Just be sure to remember: great things come in little packages ...

    Tournament Rules:

    • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
    • Grand Slam rules can be found here.
    • Standard BW2 LC.
    • Best of three, single elimination.
    • The banlist for this tournament is the same as the LC ladder of the Smogon University server of Pokemon Showdown.
    • If tier changes occur during the middle of a round, they will take effect in the subsequent round.
    • Battles should take place on Pokemon Showdown! unless both players agree otherwise.*

    A bunch of rulings I expect you all to read (open)
    Identity

    I expect many battles to be completed under alts and I expect many battles to be completed on other servers to prevent scouting. These kind of factors are pretty bad for tournament security, and thus I will make this clear: If I hear any whispers of identity theft (battling as someone you are not) or proxy battling (helping someone else battle through pm) I will not be pleased and I will take severe actions.

    Scouting

    Next, I do not want to hear anything about counterteaming, at all. It is the silliest thing I have ever heard, any battler worth their marbles has more than one team. Do not complain about it. I also don't want to hear about any forceful scouting, whether it be spying on another teams irc channel or following your opponent around on PO. There is a difference between "ipl is known for using stall" and "let me follow ipl around all day to watch all his battles since I am his opponent". I expect a lot of the former and none of the latter.

    With that said, I give permission to all battlers to ask any person spectating their battle to leave if they do not want them watching. However, given the fact that this is the big stage, I am sure a lot of people want to watch, so don't be too mean.

    Timer Clause

    As for taking long between moves, if your opponent asks you to hurry up, please oblige. If you are doing a damage calc for a key turn that is one thing, but prolonging every move is suspicious and annoying. Don't do it. Furthermore, Battle Timeout is a rule for a reason. If you run out of time, you lose, simple as that. It does not matter what your opponent says. Do not battle if you think you will have to leave mid battle, and instead reschedule for a better time. Timing out is still classified as a loss, unless the reason for timing out is a disconnection. If there is any suspicion that a disconnect was carried out deliberately to take advantage of this rule in any way, we reserve the right to exercise a harsh punishment.

    Disconnections

    If a player disconnects and either player contends that they could still win, the optimal solution is to recreate the exact situation the disconnection occurred at during the battle. If it is agreed between players that this is not feasible due to unreasonable battle length, highly improbable circumstances, or some other reason, the player who did not disconnect may choose to rematch with either the same teams or (the option to use) new teams. Timing out is still classified as a loss, unless the reason for timing out is a disconnection. If there is any suspicion that a disconnect was carried out deliberately to take advantage of this rule in any way, we reserve the right to exercise a harsh punishment. Do not do it.

    I know that was a lot to read, but it is all necessary for me to have posted here so everyone can see it in the case of a dispute. I don't want any confusion or any problems.

    Battle Clauses:
    • Evasion Clause
    • OHKO Clause
    • Sleep Clause
    • Species Clause
    • Timed Battle
    • Team Preview
    Quarterfinal Pairings:

    senegal vs blarajan
    (Lavos Spawn vs Amarillo) vs MAlkaviano
    McMeghan vs Heist
    (Furai vs kokoloko) vs Bernis

    Heist will be in the top whatever happens now.

    Well, by top, I mean at least 8th. But he'll tie if he doesn't beat McMeghan, so he could miss it when losing the tiebreak.

    I was available all of yesterday, and will be today as well. I wish to make this battle happen. On the other hand, my opponent is refusing to battle me now which is quite dumb.
