op and idea from the Best Friends Tournament
Welcome to the very first Best Friends Tournament: Monotype Edition! There are many friendship groups and bonds made through playing Monotype 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 metagame from any of the current gen metagames or previous gen's Monotype OU tiers. List of tiers available to choose from:
Current Gen:
USUM Monotype
Monotype Ubers
Monotype LC
Monotype AAA
Monotype STABmons

Previous Gen:
ORAS Monotype
BW Monotype

Here's an example to show how a round will be played. Suppose team 1 (players A and B) choose Monotype LC and team 2 (players X and Y) choose ORAS Monotype. Team 1 decide that B will play Monotype LC and A will play ORAS Monotype, where as team 2 decide that X will play Monotype LC and Y will play ORAS Monotype. If there is a tie (let's say A beats X and Y beats B) after all players have played, then a third game will be played in USUM Monotype (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). If both team 1 and team 2 pick the same tier, then they'll play by slot order, aka, A will play X and B will play Y.

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.

To sign up, tag your partner in the thread (only one of the pair needs to) along with a team name and your team's chosen tier. If you do not have a partner but would still like to signup, post "in as a free agent" and I will sort you into a pair. This could be a way to meet a new friend!
