haha true it is a rematch of st4 for them, should be good.

For clarification:

Ubers INCLUDE deoxys E and Wobbuffet, im not going to get into arguments here but i think it is an absolute joke that they are unbanned on shoddy, so lets leave it at that.

Also, the final round points WILL be awarded no matter who is alive, thus if all of USA central manage to make the top 3 they will get all the points to be allocated in the finals (6). So asia does not have it in the bag yet!!!

Shouldn't that be 32 if the points don't increase and stay at 2 points per win since if you swept this round you get 26 points as you said and another 3-0 sweep is another 6 points equaling 32?
No. The next round only gives 1 point per win for some bizarre reason.

I agree with disallowing Deoxys-S and Wobbuffet for this tournament, because that's how it's been in all prior rounds.

I lost to Taylor 3-0 even though my team seemed like it could probably have beaten his, mainly due to me not making too many predictions in my opinion. Good game, sorry Oceania!

You have absolutely nothing to apologize for.
Thanks for sticking it out for as long as you did, I appreciate your efforts to no end.

At any rate, we'll regroup and take the tournament by storm next year!
This isn't the last you've heard from Oceania ...

here is the ration for the one point in the next round:

There will be six people. Battlers A, B and C win. They each get one point. Round Robin occurs, the person who comes in last gets one additional point. This could potentially be after losing both games in the finals. So technically if we gave 2 points for a win in the second last round and 0 for not winning in the finals, it would have been the same thing for the person who came in last.

If we made it 2 points in the second last round and then did 2-1-0 for first-second-third, we felt it would not emphasize the final enough. At the end of the day, if the 3 central players make the top three they will get 9 points, regardless of which system we went with!

Hmm for a second I thought Taylor was matched up against husk and I was like "yeah an Asian lost so that takes some pressure off us".

ok, but now i have to ask if the deadline of the round robin can be a little bit longer because in germany (dont know in other euroe?) are 2 weeks holidays from 10.5-24.5 and then i have no internet or any computer cause im in the vacation :[

I beat Jackal, 1-0.

I played kind of dumb early and was down either 4-2 or 3-2 at one point and only won in the stalling at the end due to some very well timed CHs when my Pokemon were about to die anyway. Sorry about the pretty cruddy match Jackal.
