Welcome to the second Best Friends Tournament! Congratulations to ABR and BKC for winning the first instalment. This time, there will be a prize (to be determined). There are many friendship groups and bonds made through playing Pokémon on Smogon, and I wanted to host a tournament which would celebrate that. This is a tournament where players pair up in teams of two and take each other on in tiers that they choose to find out who is the best duo.
Each match will be a best of 3 between two pairs. During signups, each pair picks a tier from my list. List of tiers available to choose from:
Here's an example to show how a round will be played. Suppose team 1 (players A and B) choose ORAS OU and team 2 (players X and Y) choose USUM RU. Team 1 decide that B will play ORAS OU and A will play USUM RU, where as team 2 decide that X will play ORAS OU and Y will play USUM RU. If there is a tie (let's say A beats X and Y beats B) after all player have played, then a third game will be played in USUM OU (to be as fair as possible) to decide which team advances (each team picks the player to represent them - let's say X vs A). (RBY is always a best of 3).
Each round will last one week. Here is a link to the rules and guidelines competitors must follow. All games must be played on Pokemon Showdown! (server does not matter). Replays are preferred but not necessary.
