    Themed Tournament

    Tournament Rules

    Introduction:

    Welcome everyone to the Themed Tournament! This Tournament will test your ability to use teams which revolve around a certain theme.

    This will be a 64 man OU Single Elimination Tournament. The first 40 spaces will be First Come First Serve. The last 24 spaces will be chosen by me with priority for well-known and respected members. Don't try and PM me to get in one of these 24 spaces, this will ensure you don't get chosen. People who signed up but didn't get in will be put as substitutes for when I need a substitute for an inactive member. The substitutes order will again be on a well-known and respected status.

    Standard Rules:


    • Evasion Clause
    • Sleep Clause
    • Freeze Clause
    • OHKO Clause
    • Self-KO Clause
    • Species Clause
    • Timed Battle

    Other Rules:

    • Consecutive usage of themes is not allowed, i.e. If you use a Rain Dance team in Round 1 you can't use another Rain Dance team again until Round 3.
    • The winner must send me a log of the battle. I need to know that players have stuck to the 100 'theme points' rule, and to ensure that players don't use consecutive themes. If the winner does not send me a PM or I find they have not stuck to the 100 'theme points' rule, then they will have to redo their battle. A second log will be required from this second battle, and if the same person didn't stick to the 100 'theme points' rule again, they will be disqualified.
    • Scouting is not allowed.

    The Themes:

    Each team must reach a total of 100 'theme points' for their team to be legal in the respective theme. You can go over 100 points though.
