A World With No Gods: Swiss Rounds

Approved by Ksh13

(naturally, art is not mine. Stolen this time from zonared.com. I need to learn to draw, remember me that later on the year)

Welcome guys to this VGC 2015 throwback tournament! As you already read in the original thread, the objective of this tournament is to play VGC'15 for one last time before 7th gen comes out. As i promised, I figured the best tournament format i could give you so let's get into it:
Standard Ruleset:
  • All matches are played in the Battle Spot Doubles format.
  • Pokémon above Level 50 will be brought down to 50 for the match while those below 50 will stay as is.
  • Players choose 4 of their 6 registered Pokémon after team preview.
  • Species Clause: No two Pokémon on your team can share the same Pokédex number.
  • Item Clause: No two Pokémon on your team can hold the same held item.
  • The following items are banned:
    • Soul Dew
  • The following Pokemon are BANNED (all forms):
    • Mewtwo
    • Mew
    • Lugia
    • Ho-Oh
    • Celebi
    • Kyogre
    • Groudon
    • Rayquaza
    • Jirachi
    • Deoxys
    • Dialga
    • Palkia
    • Giratina
    • Phione
    • Manaphy
    • Darkrai
    • Shaymin
    • Arceus
    • Victini
    • Reshiram
    • Zekrom
    • Kyurem
    • Keldeo
    • Meloetta
    • Genesect
    • Xerneas
    • Yveltal
    • Zygarde
  • Matches will be best of three, both swiss rounds and top cut.
  • The preferred platform for the tournament will be a wi-fi battle between two consoles, each with a copy of Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire. However, if any of the players have any problems playing on the console, the platform can be changed to Pokemon Showdown instead.
  • Every single HA Pokémon introduced in 2016 WILL BE ALLOWED in this tournament.
  • The players may switch teams between rounds, but they won't be able to switch teams between the games of a same round.
  • If there's a disconnection during the matches, the players must take a screenshot at their current screen. If the disconnection happened on the 3DS, you must send a photo of the upper screen of the 3DS at the time the disconnection occured. In the case of PS!, you must take a photo at the chat in the moment the timer ran out after a disconnection. You can wait as long as you want before clicking the timer.
So, Round 1 will be until June 4th, with 2 extra days for deadline extension if there is the need. Here are the pairings for Round 1:

Sardus21 vs Mishimono
ProjectTitan313 vs Elegyy
Derivatives vs CorruptedOmega7
Carbonific vs P3DS
Demantoid vs GreenGogoatttt

round 2 is:

Elegyy vs P3DS
Demantoid vs CorruptedOmega7
GreenGogoatttt vs Mishimono
ProjectTitan313 vs Carbonific
Sardus21 vs Derivatives

Remember, the deadline is June 16th. Good luck to all of you!
