    Approved by Furai, and thanks for the idea for the tournament name.

    Double the Power, Double the Arceus, Double the Fun!

    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 4 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.

    Sign ups:

    General Rules:

    Clauses:
    • 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.

    Fourth Mini-Tournament:


    This will be little different to previous mini-tournaments, since this time rather than a simple clause or weather ban, the format of the battles will change only with a twist. To celebrate the success of double battles arriving on Showdown and its popularity, this tournament will be Ubers Doubles! But to also spice up the rounds in mini-tour fashion, you may also wield dual Arceus on your team!

    Smogon Doubles clauses adjusted to fit this tour:

    1) 6 vs 6 instead of 4 vs 4
    2) Pokemon default level 100 instead of level 50
    3) Sleep Clause ON
    4) Item Clause OFF
    5) OHKO Clause ON
    6) Moody Clause ON
    7) Naturally since this is Ubers, the Smogon Doubles Pokemon banlist will be negated for this mini tour, but the following moves are still banned.

    • Dark Void
    • Sky Drop​

    8) However you may not use 2 of the same Arceus types on your team.

    I’ll invite you to check out the Smogon Doubles thread for some ideas on some powerful and common doubles tactics should you be new to the doubles metagame.

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

    • Cherub Agent
    • Living Things

    Namikaze hasn't been online in 5 days and even though nyttyn doesn't appear to have attempted to contact him, he will move onto the final round in hope that at least the final match won't have to be an activity win.

    Finals!

    nyttyn vs Orochibob

    Deadline will be 11pm on the 16th of February EST!

    Great job to the both of you, it was a really good battle to watch!! And great to see the participation of those who don't normally frequent ubers.

    Congratulations to nyttyn for taking it home!
