    The Smogon Spelling Bee

    [​IMG]

    Hello and welcome to the Smogon Spelling Bee! In this tournament, the names of your Pokemon will finally matter, or at least the first letters of them. In each round, you will be given a theme and you must build a team using six Pokemon that spell out a word relating to that theme with the first letters of their names. For instance, if the theme was 'household objects', I could build a team using the word 'window' and the Pokemon Wormadam, Infernape, Ninjask, Delcatty, Omastar and Wigglytuff. Note the Pokemon must be in the same order as the word, so I would be required to use Wormadam as my lead. Also, note that plural nouns are illegal. Singular only.

    Standard Rules
    • Single Elimination
    • Gen 4
    • Singles
    • All matches are to be played on Smogon's PO server or the CAP server on Shoddy

    Yea, bs lol. I should've won 6-0 with Gyarados sweep from the start XD. Then at the end when I had it figured out to win with a clear path with Scarf Tyranitar, my Choice Scarf Tyranitar was actually Hardy Nature (facepalm) which allowed his Azelf to out speed and explode. Yea, it really should've been my game but that's Pokemon and for me not looking up my team carefully before playing. Good game.
