    Hey guys! If you're not familiar with Mini-Tournaments, it's run just like an actual Smogon tournament, except it's held in Smogon Metagames subforums. Here are some general facts about Mini-Tournaments:

    • The first thread/post posted is the sign-ups. During the sign-ups, you post "in".
    • The Rounds will last exactly 3 days from the second the round is posted here in the subforum. At the end of the 3 days, any unfinished matches will be coin-flipped and moved to the next round.
    • All of the Rounds will take place in this thread, so keep your eyes peeled for when the round is over and the next round has started!
    • Each mini-tournament will consist of 16, 24, or 32 participants, no more than that, or it stops being mini. First 16 are in for 16- and 24-man tourneys with the last 9 randomized for 24-man tourneys, and the first 20 are in with the last 12 being randomized for 32-man tourneys. Each sign-ups will try to achieve 32 participants, but if it isn't possible, then it will be a 16- or 24-man tourney with the first 16 that signed up in. You may sign up as a substitute after round 1 is posted.

    General Rules:
    Clauses:
    • Evasion Clause
    • OHKO Clause
    • Sleep Clause
    • Species Clause
    • Moody Clause
    • Standard BW2 Ubers
    • Best of one, single elimination
    • You may switch your team each round
    • Each tournament can and probably will have a quirk dealing with the metagame. Tourneys will have weird quirks such as "no weather."
    • Because most of these tourneys will have weird quirks, please save your logs and be prepared to take a screenshot of the battle should you suspect your opponent of cheating. However, you don't need to save logs and you don't have to submit your teams to whoever is running the mini-tourney.
    • Any of the above rules are subject to change depending on the tourney.

    Prizes:
    Prizes include points from the Awards Thread. You will get 5 points for winning, 3 points for being the runner-up, and 2 points each time you get four wins in one of these Mini-Tournaments. Earning points may help you get a badge.

    First Mini-Tournament:
    Each round I will be banning one thing or one group of things (ex. hazards) to spice up the metagame a bit. This is just a fun gimmick to see how your teams will adapt. The bans will stack each round. List of things banned in each round:

    Round 1:
    - Choice Items (Your Pokemon cannot be holding a Choice Band, Choice Scarf, or Choice Specs)

    Round 2:
    - Entry Hazards are banned (Stealth Rock, Spikes, Toxic Spikes)
    - Mewtwo is banned

    Round 3:
    - Arceus is banned

    Round 4:
    - Sand Stream, Drizzle, and Drought are banned
    - Ho-oh is banned

    Post "in" to join. Signups will stop at 32 participants, or 16-24 if signups are slow.

    Chlorophyll and Swift Swim prevent that kind of stuff, and don't forget, Mewtwo can't be aided by any other wall breakers trying to utilize Specs (well its not like he's going to sweep just wall break but....)
