    Welcome to Uber Doubles Cup, my first tournament here on Smogon.

    What exactly is this Uber Doubles Cup you say?

    Well, after hearing about how the Japanese VGC 2010 would allow the use of many of the best Uber Pokémon, I immediately wanted to make a team, ready in case the American rules were similar. However, to my disappointment, only 2 Ubers are allowed in any team, and I had a team ready of 4 prepared. Even though my team was useless, it made me wonder how a tournament would play out, and how much interest it would generate if I were to play it my preferred way. Anyway, now the more specific rules:

    Rules

    • Battles will be 4 vs 4 Doubles.
    • All 4 Pokémon can be Uber.
    • Alternate formes are ALLOWED.
    • However, Arceus is BANNED.
    • Active Clauses will be the same as Standard VGC.
    • All battles will be set Level 50.
    • The format will be Swiss.
    • No legal hacks.
    Second Round Pairings:

    Bracket 1:

    Drcossack v xXaZniNvaZnXx
    Honchkrow v Tsuba-kun
    Greysong v Cybertron
    Tyler422 v sixonesix

    Bracket 2:

    Mattj v Ditto
    Negator v Tri-Darksouls
    Imperfectluck v Tenzuku
    Politoad666 v Alakapimp

    Bracket 3:

    LightningFusion v Zerowing
    Trufflehunter25 v dtrain
    Tsunami v Ashitaka
    Nico v Batpig

    As well as this, the following matches from the last round need to be completed:

    First Bracket:
    Tsuba-kun v sixonesix

    Second Bracket:
    Imperfectluck v Mattj
    Ditto v Tenzuku
    Politoad666 v Negator

    Third Bracket:
    Ashitaka v Zerowing
    Trufflehunter25 v Nico

    All of these need to be completed by the end of tomorrow, or the member I deem most active and making the most effort will be given the win. In the event of this being unfair, I will toss a coin.

    Again, 7 days for the battles. Enjoy your matches, and good luck to all.

    Just PM'ed Tsubasa about our match, it should be done soon.

    Predictions:

    First Bracket

    Tyler422
    vs Cybertron
    Sixonesix vs GreySong
    xXaZniNvaZnXx vs Honchkrow - tough to say
    Tsuba-kun vs Drcossack - gl

    Second Bracket

    Ditto vs Alkapimp
    Politoad666 vs Imperfectluck
    Tenzuku vs Negator
    Tri-DarkSouls vs Mattj

    Third Bracket

    Tsunami vs dtrain
    Ashitaka vs LightningFusion
    Nico vs Batpig
    Zerowing vs Trufflehunter25 - if they actually battle, easily Zero. Truffle is going to lose his DS again though.

    Of course. Hopefully, it will not be needed, as if they complete their match, they are then in theory ready when you are both online. I do not want certain people one round behind others, as this slows progress, and will become frustrating for other players.

    well in the top part you got marked right as winning, the wrong user was just bolded in the bottom, but your opponent in the brackets is correct

    OK, at the request of Mattj, IPL vs Mattj has been decided on a coin flip. The winner of the toss was Mattj, so he can now start his matches.
