It's not a misplay, it's RNG manipulation

Specific Rules
  • This is a TEAMLOCKED USUM Battle Spot Singles Tournament.
  • The tournament will be Best of Three, Single Elimination.
  • Players CANNOT change their teams during the set. Please open ALL 3 games with the same team prior to starting game 1.
  • Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown. (Don't play on smogtours as you will time out on team preview).
  • Replays must be saved and POSTED. Matches without a replay will not count as completed.
  • In an event of a timeout, the player who times out will lose that game unless the opponent grants a rematch. This holds true even for a disconnect, due to being unable to know which three Pokemon have been selected at team preview. Consequently, players do not need to send in their teams to a TD.
  • Activity calls and coinflips will be done by myself and the pick command on Pokemon Showdown respectively.
Standard Rules
  • Matches will be played in the Singles format
  • Pokemon above level 50 will be brought down to level 50. Pokemon below level 50 stay as is.
  • Players pick 3 of their 6 Pokemon at team preview.
  • 3DS-born Clause: A Pokemon cannot have a set that can only be obtained from before gen 6. (i.e. no past-gen exclusive move tutors/TMs/events)
  • Species Clause: No two Pokemon in the same team can have the same National Pokedex number.
  • Item Clause: No two Pokemon in the same team can hold the same item.
Last Life Bracket: This bracket is for people who lost in the main bracket to have an extra chance to win more circuit points (CP). Players in the last life bracket can no longer win the tournament, but can earn 1CP per round win (winning in the main bracket earns 2CP). As such, players who are only interested in winning the tournament and don't care about CP can drop out if they wish to do so. Players who no longer have an opponent but wants to play or needs an extension need to notify me immediately so that they can get a new matchup/get an extension, as incomplete games will count as a double game loss. Players who lose in the last life bracket will be out of this tournament.

Simulator Glitches: Any battle mechanics not properly implemented in the simulator used for a tournament battle are fair game, unless explicitly banned by that tournament's rules. Illegal movesets that are not restricted by the simulator fall into this category as well. However, this does not include faulty tier scripts; for example, if there was a bug in the BW OU tier script that allowed you to use Drizzle and Swift Swim on the same team, taking advantage of this would result in disqualification in that battle. If a game breaking glitch is discovered, we will make a blanket tournament ban on that glitch via an announcement in the Tournaments forum until it is fixed.

Ghosting: The player in a tournament battle should be the one making their own decisions. Do not tell a player what move to make in a tournament battle (i.e. do not "ghost" them), and do not make your moves based on another person's suggestions. If we are made aware that someone playing a tournament battle is making some of their moves based mainly on the suggestions of someone else, punishments may be handed out to both parties involved.

Identity: Pretending to be another player in relation to a tournament battle is strictly prohibited. Do not try to impersonate or play as another player. This applies to the use of alts as well. Any player who breaks this will be disqualified and may be subject to further punishment.

Rule Breaking: If a player breaks a rule during a battle, they are disqualified from that particular battle. If it was a single battle in a series, they will still have the opportunity to play the rest of the series.

Draws: If a battle ends in a draw in an elimination tournament or another tournament format that is unable to handle draws, there should be a rematch between the players with the option for both players to change teams.

Forfeiting: A player may forfeit their battle during or after the battle, as long as the result has not been confirmed by the host. If a player forfeits before a battle commences in the first round of a tournament, they are eligible for substitution if appropriate. We highly recommend that you do not forfeit your tournament battles just because you got lucky, but we do not enforce this.

Host / Tournament Director Decisions: The host may make a judgment call on the outcome of a battle with a disputed result, even if one player has broken the rules. If you believe the host has made an unjust decision, you may inform the Tournament Director responsible for the tournament of the situation and request that they make a final call on it.

Sportsmanship: If a player displays exceedingly poor sportsmanship before, during, or after a tournament battle, they may be disqualified or otherwise punished.

Finals ends Sunday Oct 6, 11:59 PM EST.

won in 2 against LightScreener, ggs. I think G2 would have come down to lax speed ties after all recycles were burned assuming no crits since I just needed lax in zard range and then I'd like to say my analytic return P2 + Solar Beam Zard Y won but not 100% sure :I

I believe that clinches 2 seed in invites, so I got what I needed out of this tour regardless of what happens against C A N T S A Y :blobthumbsup:
