Welcome to the inaugural Doubles Classic! The commencement thread for this tour can be found here, with details on scoring and the playoffs that will follow the conclusion of these three cups.

  • This is a standard USUM Doubles OU tournament.
  • This tournament will be Single Elimination.
  • Rounds will be Best of Three. You may switch teams in between battles of the same set.
  • Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown!
  • To encourage the development of the metagame, and so that everyone is on an even playing field, all matches must have replays recorded. Only games shown in a replay will be counted.
  • Activity calls will be made by me, potentially with neutral assistance from a TD / the other Grand Prix hosts. Coin flips will be done on PS!

IMPORTANT NOTE: We have a lot of subs for this tournament because we came just short of the threshold for a larger bracket. As such, I will be very aggressive in subbing people out. I will be doing an activity sweep on Thursday, July 2, at 11:59 PM Eastern time (GMT -4), and if there is no indication of a completed or scheduled match, you will be subbed out. If you schedule via public VMs on Smogon, you're safe. If you post in the thread that you have scheduled with your opponent, you are safe. If you attempt to schedule with your opponent in private and they do not answer but you post that you contacted them (with proof) in this thread, you are safe. If you schedule in private but don't post in the thread or on each other's walls to inform me, you are not safe. Make sure we know you have scheduled if you don't want to be removed! This is your official warning, don't get caught off guard.

If you are a sub, check back after this activity sweep to see if you were subbed in.

If you want to be added to the list of subs, post "in as sub" in this thread.
