    *insert banner here* (I lost the image adress, will be up soon)

    Rules
    • Format will of course be UU and below. Check the Pokemon eligible for this tournament: UU / NU - NFE Pokemon are allowed as long as they do not belong to a different tier already (Uber / OU / BL), with the exception being Hippopotas and Snover.
    • Wi-Fi Tournament Rules - You can read and get up to date with all the hosting rules and common clauses for these type of Tournaments.
    • The UU Tournament will allow 16-32 players maximum. The tournament format will be single elimination. There will be substitute places available as there are always lame people who do not complete their matches.
    • Players will be given 1 week to complete their matches. There will be no extensions to this deadline. If a match is not completed, the one whom demonstrated more activity will move on. If neither player showed activity, they both might be dropped or the outcome will be decided based on a flip.
    • All battles will be Singles 6 vs 6 Auto-level 100.
    • Only people who have or have had active trade threads may participate in this Tournament. Sorry generic random Wi-Fi lurker!
    Clauses
    • Sleep Clause
    • Species Clause
    • OHKO moves Clause
    • Evasion Clause
    • NO Hacked Pokemon
    • NO Weather
    Prizes
    • Prizes will be awarded to the top finishers of the tournament. I am currently accepting donations for prizes, but I will only accept 7 prize donations total. So far negator, Tase and Destroyer have donated prizes.
    Announcements
    • Changes to the Rules and Clauses sections have been added above so make sure you read them before you get your team ready.
    • I have plans to start an OU Tournament, if it gets approved of course, when we are down to Round 3 for this tournament, so keep an eye out for sign ups on the OU Tournament.
    • Since some matches have been completed, due to the new changes in the UU tier, Donphan and Dugtrio will be allowed and Umbreon will be disallowed to be used from Round 2 and onwards. For this Round though we will keep the tier as it was on Saturday when the pairings were posted.

    The thread has a link to both the current UU and NU tiers in which you can check what Pokemon are allowed and which aren't. Limbo Pokemon are not UU Pokemon and thus are not eligible for the tournament. If this changes after a vote then the new UU Pokemon will be allowed for the next Rounds.

    Thanks for reminding me to state the deadline. The Round will be over next Sunday July 12th.

    DEZTROYA vs Mr.Darkrai - This guy is just beast at UU, nothing else to say
    Macheep vs Althos - I haven't battled either one so its a toss up guess
    BlakBlastoise vs Erodent - Blak doesn't play UU at all so erodent has the edge
    Jigo vs Harro237 - I haven't battled either one so its a toss up guess
    Tri-DarkSouls vs Supe - Freakin beast right there
    Diploman vs Tase - I haven't battled either one so its a toss up guess
    Deschain vs Magik0722 - I haven't battled either one so its a toss up guess
    Fightgar vs negator - He is pretty good at battling OU so i expect him to rock here too
    Honchkrow vs Darkprophet - Beast right there (i got killed by him like 3 months ago 6-0...)
    Slimi vs wiinry - Heard he was really good
    krabs93 vs mikeeeey - I haven't battled either one so its a toss up guess
    Alakapimp vs Geren - He is a great friend :-)
    TheForgottenSoul vs asiankid123 - good luck dude
    Pablo vs Seafan- BEAST
    Scruffy vs Eiganjo - BEYOND BEAST
    destroyer vs sandman- cool guy :D

    Hax happens. Wouldn't be Pokemon without it xD but so it was a very close battle, so 0-1 to Pablo.
    good game, I enjoyed it.

    Hmm, this should be interesting. I would have signed up, but I just don't have the time this summer :(. Anyway, this is how its all gonna break down:

    DEZTROYA vs Mr.Darkrai
    Macheep vs Althos
    BlakBlastoise vs Erodent
    Jigo vs Harro237
    Tri-DarkSouls vs Supe
    Diploman vs Tase - Gotta root for mah boi :P
    Deschain vs Magik0722
    Fightgar vs negator
    Honchkrow vs Darkprophet
    Slimi vs wiinry
    krabs93 vs mikeeeey
    Alakapimp vs Geren
    TheForgottenSoul vs asiankid123
    Pablo vs Seafan
    Scruffy
    vs Eiganjo
    destroyer
    vs sandman

    Had a couple guesses, but ah well. Good luck to everyone in this; this should be a really fun tournament.

    Also, if anyone wants someone to practice against, I'm available all the rest of today and a little tomorrow before I leave for Italy. Hit me up if you need some practice.

    I know predictions don't mean anything but here's a little hit for the people that are predicting me to win:
    I've only battled UU 3 times in my life. First battle 6-0, second battle 5-0, third battle i won due to hax and my opponent was also new at uu. So to sum it up; I'm very terrible at uu.
