Season 2 Cartridge Tournament

Welcome to our first SM Cartridge Tournament! This tournament is an invite-based tournament where the top 8 players from the previous season's PGL ladder duke it out for the title of Season 2 Cartridge Tournament Champion. The Champion will get a forum banner for a season, as well as a championship title that gives them a bigger chance to qualify for the annual Battle Spot Invitational.

Round 1

GroudonEmpire vs Mishimono
Doobzi vs NOVED
chemcoop vs Natalie.
Jmal98 vs Solerme

Specific Rules
  • This is a standard SM Battle Spot Singles Tournament.
  • The tournament will be Best of Three, Single Elimination.
  • Players may NOT change their teams during the Best of Three. You must continue to battle with the same team throughout the set. You CAN switch teams between rounds.
  • Matches are to be played on Pokemon Sun/Pokemon Moon on the 3DS
  • Replays must be saved and PM'd to me on forums or on discord (if I'm participating PM another battle spot mod who isn't). A lot of information can be mined out of a team through mock battles, so this is the best option we have atm.
  • In an event of a disconnect, the player who disconnects will lose that game unless the opponent grants a rematch. If a DC happens, make sure to take a photo of the screen so that I know who DC'd. In the event the screens don't reveal the cause of the disconnect, the game will be reset (but not the set. If the DC occurred at game 3 you will restart at g3).
Standard Rules
  • You need to play with "Flat Rules" and "Single Battle" in the challenge screen.
  • Mawilite, Beedrillite, Steelixite, Audinoite, Medichamite, and Pidgeotite are banned. These mega stones were banned during season 2 of Battle Spot and are therefore banned in this tournament as well. I'm bad and forgot to include this for round 1, but it will be taken into effect starting round 2.
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 permanently banned from the circuit, in addition to the punishment handed by the Tournament Directors.

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.

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.


This round ends Sunday, April 9 11:59PM EST.

ANNOUNCEMENT:

GroudonEmpire has brought to my attention that mock battles are possible against both players in a replay, allowing for excessive amounts of information to be mined out regardless of who posts the replays. As such, replay codes are to be sent to me via PM (or another battle spot mod in the event I qualify for this in future seasons) instead of posting here. This is the best option we have right now so please bear with us.

We would like to have the replays so that we can upload them as videos later on for people to see.

Thanks

Announcement:

I completely forgot about this until Natalie. pointed it out but since this is a tournament for season 2 Battle Spot Singles, Mawilite, Beedrillite, Steelixite, and Pidgeotite are banned in this tournament.

This ban will take into effect starting Round 2.

Sorry about any confusion and team preparation issues this decision creates.

Thanks

won 2-0 in the rematch against soLerme, neither of us saved the second game so we're just going with the honour system.
