    After over 3 weeks of qualifying, we are finally here, the second round. 160+ battles were completed in Round 1, making it by far the most successful round of any tournament in competitive Pokemon history. Now that only 8 teams remain, the competition is only going to get tougher...

    The final rosters can be viewed here

    The format for this round can be found here

    The rules of the tournament can be found here

    Final Round 1 standings can be found here

    As many of you know, this round we will shift back to a team vs team heads up winner take all format, similar to what we employed in WCII. We have seeded all the teams 1-8 based on performance in round 1, and now it is simply winner move on.

    Outstanding user Pirika has created a wonderful bracket to display the fight for the cup:

    [​IMG]

    Now, im sure you are all wondering who you will get the glorious opportunity to defeat in combat...

    Click to find out

    Battles are to be completed no later than two weeks from today, Friday, July 24, 2009. Tiebreakers can happen after this date, but no standard battles. We will be much less understanding this time since you all only have ONE battle to do, and there is a much smaller volume of battles. PM your opponent and get it done, don't wait around.

    I would like to wish all teams and competitors good luck, and I know I am licking my chops at the chance to finally bury asia :D

    PS: FIGHT FOR YOUR COUNTRY!!!

    EDIT: everyone use the template and make predictions :D

    Admittedly Asia was pretty much the one team I didn't want to play right now.

    Good luck to all.

    I see Kevin Garrett most days on IRC so it shouldn't be too hard to arrange our match.

    Alright lets get the real show on the road. Will edit in predictions.

    Edit:

    USA West (1) vs. USA South (8)
    Philip7086 vs. tito -
    zerowing vs. bad ass - Already happened
    LoveDestiny vs. HuntOfTheLion - IMO the only shot south has as a win...
    SoT vs. Brawley - SoT will win if he starts playing more...
    Duskie vs. Aeroblacktyl - Tough, gotta go with the one that battles more
    romeojustdie vs. darkie - Solid OU player
    Warthog vs. ReyScarface - Warthog can overcome hax :P
    TAY vs. Ancien Regime - Should be a good matchup, gonna go with the safe pick.

    UK (2) vs. USA Metro (7)
    Taylor vs. Jimbo
    twash vs. 0GBallin
    Vashta vs. reachzero
    Zak91 vs. august
    Havak vs. Arin
    Ace Matador vs. JabbaTheGriffin
    Kinneas vs. Kevin Garrett
    Legacy Raider vs. Twist of Fate

    Nuff said.

    USA Central (3) vs. Oceania (6) - Loki wins tiebreak
    LonelyNess vs. Junior - Junior matches up well against LN
    Eo Ut Mortus vs. Hipmonlee - Tough pick, though I think EUM will find a way to pull it out
    Loki vs. panamaxis - As much as I wanna see Loki lose, I doubt it's gonna happen, though panamaxis is an excellent battler. Spotlight.
    matty vs. Antique Roadshow - Sorry dude but AR can be deadly if he just puts his mind to it...
    obi vs. Blue Kirby - Obi's been rusty lately.
    Gaborik vs. MS - Gonna go with Gaborik since I dunno how much MS plays now.
    Aeolus vs. animenagai - Yeah...
    Dormin vs. Earthworm - Gonna be an excellent match, though I think Earthworm will find a way to win.

    Asia (4) vs. Canada (5) - IPL or VIL wins tiebreak
    Veteran In Love vs. Atticus - VIL is solid in every gen.
    husk vs. Jlei2k - Gonna go with the upset here because I know Jlei2k is very good at DPP, but I wouldn't be one bit surprised if husk wins.
    Light-kun vs. skarm - Skarm's shown he is a force in DPP.
    Lady bug vs. Jackal - Sorry jekal, plays more DPP.
    DawnBringer vs. bosgoed - You're 'ace in the hole' I guess
    imperfectluck vs. Gouki - Best match of the round...I want gouki to win but gut says IPL will pull it out.
    Magmortified vs. Krack - Solid OU player
    Sarenji vs. Ripchord - Guess honestly.
