Approved by Earthworm The Trading Places Tournament Tournament Rules: General tournament rules and regulations can be found here. Standard OU - Singles Best of three During the first match, players will use the teams they have built. During the second match, teams are switched. Have the exact details of your team ready to be exchanged after the first match. During the third match (if best of three), teams will be switched back. Each player will use their original team. When you post your victory, post whether you won in 2 or 3 matches. Every team must be submitted to the host to ensure fair play. This will be done using TeamSubmit. You may change your team in between rounds, but you must still submit the new team to the host. Single elimination The banlists for this tournament are the same as for the ladders of the Smogon University server of Pokemon Online. Battle Clauses: Evasion Clause OHKO Clause Sleep Clause Species Clause Timed Battle Wifi Clause Team Preview TeamSubmit: You only need TeamSubmit if you plan to switch teams. If you do switch, you'd better submit a new team. Here is the link for submitting your team. I need everything. Pokemon, EVs, Natures, Items, Movelists, etc. You should have all this written down and ready to pass to your opponent before your second match anyway, so if anything goes into PokemonOnline it goes into TeamSubmit.

This tournament partly meant to serve as a learning experience, so each round I'm going to ask a question that I want to stir up discussion. Answering it isn't mandatory, but it's a clear sign of Activity and it should spice things up. After Round 1 we have ten Team Building wins and twelve Player Skill wins. Pretty even, and skewed more by the number of johns in the first round. So where do you think the number is going to go as the tournament progresses? As players are eliminated and in theory skill goes up, will team power be all that matters or will the difference in player skill only be amplified? Feel free to discuss even if not playing or if you've been eliminated. Extensions The following matches from the first round will be extended for 3 days. After that I'm calling em', even if I need a coin flip to do so.
