    The Yin-Yang Tournament
    aka Pound-for-Pound III

    [​IMG]
    Introduction

    The main goal of this single elimination tournament is to challenge players in the array of BW metagames ranging from BW Ubers to BW LC. It also serves as a little prelude to what the Smogon Grand Slam will require from players that have their sights set on the teal trophy. Each round players will get a different BW metagame to play, which will be picked randomly by me. For those that are not aware of all the BW metagames, they are: BW Ubers, BW OU, BW UU, BW RU, BW NU, and BW LC. Let's see who can prove themselves a master of Black and White!

    Somehow there is an extra player. I am suppose to have 139 players, including substitutes, in this tournament but I have 140 players. Someone's name might be repeated twice, please let me know if that is the case. If that is not the case, then I might have miscounted.

    Have fun!!!

    EDIT: In order to promote activity, I have decided to use substitutes based on activity. If you are still interested in participating, just post saying so. Nonetheless, the substitutes in the OP get priority over new substitutes if they show interest once again.

    Yep it's UU.

    If any confusion arises, I will include the exact BW metagame next to each pairing. Although, I think it is pretty simple to figure out which BW metagame you are suppose to play, considering both players have to check.
