    Welcome all to the second edition of the World Cup of Pokemon! For those of you that don't remember, Redwall beat out zfs in the last edition in an all American final. This time, however, the rules have been slightly modified to create a stronger rivalry with a country vs country format.

    The way this works will be quite simple; there will be 8 teams representing cultures from all around the world. Each team will consist of 8 people, one being the Captain, whose job is to create the team. The teams will then face off against each other, with each member of one team being paired with a member from the other team (Captains do not square off by default, although they could be randomly paired). A total of 5 victories clinches a win for your team and moves you on to the next round. However, in the case of a 4-4 tie, each team will select one player to play in a tiebreaker. This player is not necesarily the Captain.

    The Regions to be represented in the tournament:
    ~Canada
    ~USA East
    ~USA Central
    ~USA West
    ~South America
    ~Asia
    ~Europe West (Spain, Portugal, France, UK)
    ~Europe East (Netherlands, Germany, Sweden and everything else)

    Now the General Rules:

    -ADVANCED MODE
    -Single Elimination
    -No Ubers (No Mewtwo, Mew, Lugia, Ho-oh, Wobbuffet/Wynaut, Latias, Latios, Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, Deoxys [All Forms])
    -Sleep Clause
    -Freeze Clause
    -Species Clause
    -Self-KO Clause
    -No OHKO/Evasion based moves
    -XD moves will be allowed
    -Unrated/PP Ups optional

    Now, this thread is not a sign up thread, it is a representation thread. If you wish to play, post your name and the top TWO countries you wish to play for (example if you are living in the states but are actually asian put both, with your prefered team first). After enough people have posted, Captains will be named and they will have the responsibility to sort through the topic and select 7 more players and 2 subs to form their team.

    That should do it, it is now up to you to prove to the world that your country is #1

    With that said, sign up now and FIGHT FOR YOUR COUNTRY!!!


    PS: Jackal - Team CANADA
