approved by Quite Quiet

As the title states, this tournament focuses on how well your team utilizes the 4 Pokemons bans, which your opponents will be unable to use. The 4 bans will be shared between all 3 tiers meaning your team has to decide how much (or little) to invest into each player, ultimately giving the players either an advantage or disadvantage over their opponent.
Tournament Specific Rules
- Form teams of 3, with each member playing a Bo1
- 1 person from your team must include a team name (optional), the team members, what tier each person will be playing (or else I will assign it), and 4 Pokemon your team wants to ban
- The 4 bans will be shared between all 3 tiers (Ex: If your team bans Gastrodon, your opponents playing OU/NU may not use it)
- Your team can decide how much/little they want to invest in each tier (Ex: 3 bans OU / 1 ban NU / 0 bans LC)
- The bans only apply to the OPPOSING team, your team may use the Pokemon you banned
- Bans will be set in stone after signups are over (you may change them at any time during signups but, please notify me if you do), so choose wisely!
- Please collaborate with your team in order to ensure everyone is satisfied with the Pokemon that will be banned
- In order for your team to be eligible, the remaining members must confirm their placement by either liking your post or posting their confirmation themselves

General Rules
- Single Elimination Tour
- SM OU/NU/LC with each person taking 1 tier.
- All standard tournament rules apply
- Post replays
- Matches will be played on either Showdown or SmogTours
- If a ban/unban happens or a new clause is added at any point during the tournament, it will take effect as soon as the new round starts
- If your opponent breaks any of the rules, it is up to you to decide whether you would like to take the win or rematch

Deadline - ASAP (I know USUM is out but, get it done soon)

Team Name
Banned Pokemon (Pokemon your team CANNOT use, aka the Pokemon the opposing team banned for your team)
Team Specific Bans
- Remember the bans are universal, so Pokemon such as Gastrodon and Slowbro are banned in both OU/NU

- Matches will be done in S/M (not USUM) so this means that all the new tutor moves / compatibilities are not allowed

Keep in mind that this is a round robin final so, you'll have to battle 2 teams

Hassin627 Melle2402 Casparov Der Schweinsteiger Garay oak Real FV13 patlop2307 insult Sealette

In the event of a 3 way tie...
  • Team with the most wins for this round only will win
  • If 2 teams have the same amount of wins for this round then those 2 teams will be battling each other
  • If all 3 teams have the same amount of wins then... I'll figure it out if that actually happens
