are graph theorists edgelords?
Hi everyone! Following on from the success of the first friendly minitour, we're taking a deeper dive into oddball Doubles formats! For those unfamiliar with the concept of minitours, each minitour has a different twist placed on it, whether it's a different tier, some sort of teambuilding restriction, or something else entirely. All information for the current minitour can be found at the bottom of this post.
- This tournament will be Single Elimination
- Rounds will be best of one.
- Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown!
- If you are found signing up under more than one alt, I'll be very sad! :(
- Don't cheat! Why would you cheat? There's nothing at stake here!
- Activity calls will be made by me. Coin flips will be done on PS!.
- Don't be rude or disrespectful to your opponent!
- Have fun!
- The winner of the minitour will win a custom role in the DOU Discord, with a color of their choice. They may choose to override their pre-existing role colors with this color, if they like. The role will last until the next DOU minitour is won, though if minitours cease the role may be removed after an indeterminate amount of time.
Minitour #2: Alphabet CupMinitour #1 added a ton of new things to play with, so this time we're taking them away! For Minitour #2, we'll be playing Alphabet Cup. Alphabet Cup follows the same banlists as standard DOU, but with one important change—you may not have two moves on your team starting with the same letter of the alphabet. For example, if you have Play Rough on your Azumarill, none of your six Pokemon (including Azumarill itself) may run Protect, since both moves start with the letter P. How will you prioritize your move selections?
- Standard DOU.
- No two moves on your team may start with the same letter.
- Z moves aren't affected by this clause, only base moves. For example:
- Freeze Shock Kyurem-B @ Power Herb + Sacred Sword Kartana: Legal
- Freeze Shock Kyurem-B @ Icium Z [giving Subzero Slammer] + Sacred Sword Kartana: Legal
- Freeze Shock Kyurem-B @ Icium Z + Fake Out Incineroar: Illegal
- Level 51
- Yellow Paint
- Qwello Lee
