    After a long qualifying round, we have arrived at the quarterfinals of the sixth World Cup of Pokemon. Last years champions, Oceania, finished the prelims as the first seed, once again looking to defend their title. Will anyone be able to trump this powerhouse team and reign supreme? Let's find out!

    The final rosters can be viewed here

    The format can be found here

    The rules of the tournament can be found here

    The standings after the prelims can be found here

    Brackets

    After the first round, the teams were seeded and will now play in a knockout style. Let's take a look at the pairings!

    The Bracket

    Substitutions

    Substitutions can be made at any time, but once a player has been subbed out, they cannot be put back in for the duration of the round.

    Rulings

    Now some notes on a few issues I feel need to be addressed (basically rulings on often disputed topics):

    A bunch of rulings I expect you all to read (open)


    Identity

    I expect many battles to be completed under alts and I expect many battles to be completed on other servers to prevent scouting. These kind of factors are pretty bad for tournament security, and thus I will make this clear: If I hear any whispers of identity theft (battling as someone you are not) or proxy battling (helping someone else battle through pm) I will not be pleased and I will take severe actions.

    Scouting

    Next, I do not want to hear anything about counterteaming, at all. It is the silliest thing I have ever heard, any battler worth their marbles has more than one team. Do not complain about it. I also don't want to hear about any forceful scouting, whether it be spying on another teams irc channel or following your opponent around on PO. There is a difference between "ipl is known for using stall" and "let me follow ipl around all day to watch all his battles since I am his opponent". I expect a lot of the former and none of the latter.

    With that said, I give permission to all battlers to ask any person spectating their battle to leave if they do not want them watching. However, given the fact that this is the big stage, I am sure a lot of people want to watch, so dont be too mean :)

    Timer Clause

    As for taking long between moves, if your opponent asks you to hurry up, please oblige. If you are doing a damage calc for a key turn that is one thing, but prolonging every move is suspicious and annoying. Don't do it. Furthermore, Battle Timeout is a rule for a reason. If you run out of time, you lose, simple as that. It does not matter what your opponent says. Do not battle if you think you will have to leave mid battle, and instead reschedule for a better time.

    Disconnections

    Finally, in the case of a disconnect, the decision is in the hands of the player who did not disconnect. The options are redo the battle move for move, redo the battle with the same teams but different moves, or redo the battle with completely different teams. If the battle was without a doubt over, they may also take the win. Any suspicion that a disconnect was committed on purpose to redo a match may be appealed to me, and if I feel this happened there will be severe consequences, don't do it.

    I know that was a lot to read, but it is all necessary for me to have posted here so everyone can see it in the case of a dispute. I don't want any confusion or any problems.


    Deadline

    The deadline for this round will be ten days from now, Sunday, July 31 at 11:59 EST. Tiebreaker matches will happen after this deadline (if necessary). I will be calling activity wins and monitoring all these battles carefully, so make sure to keep in contact with your opponent and get it done!

    So that is everything, good luck to the remaining eight nations and let's try to keep the drama to a minimum... HEh who am I kidding that's no fun. Canada GOT DIS.

    FFIIGGHHTT FFOORR YYOOUURR CCOOUUNNTTRRYY!!
