Doubles Team Trials Tournament (Round 2 in #154)


"Silence is the best answer to a stupid question"

Approved by Pwnemon & Pocket.

Welcome to the first Smogon Doubles Team Trials Tournament! For those of you who aren't familiar with Smogon history, Team Trials is a tournament that is hosted which comprises of three person teams. These teams then duke it out in a knockout-style tournament, until only one glorious team remains standing. All battles will be played in standard XY Doubles. The selection of teams are up to you guys; it's not random. Obviously, this may create "power teams," but let's let the tournament decide who's the real power team.

In order to signup your team, please use the following format:

Team Name:
Member 1:
Member 2:
Member 3:
Everyone on the team needs to confirm in this thread that they're on the team.

Lastly, if you don't actually have a team in mind and would just like to put your name in the melting pot, a free agency list will be held here. In order to be put in free agency, please just state that you wish to be a free agent in this thread.

Before participating in this tournament, please take some time to read the following thread: Tournament Rules, Guidelines, and General Information

Specific Rules

This is a standard XY Smogon Doubles tournament. The tournament will be single elimination. Players will play a best of one series each round. Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown!

Standard Rules and Clauses

Moody Clause: Moody is banned. Species Clause: A player cannot have two of the same Pokemon on their team. For example, a player cannot have two Keldeo on his or her team. Evasion Moves Clause: Evasion Moves are banned. Evasion Abilities Clause: Evasion Abilities are banned.
OHKO Clause: Players cannot use Horn Drill, Guillotine, Sheer Cold, or Fissure in any of their Pokemon's movesets. Team Preview: Players must turn on the Team Preview feature where players can view the opposing team's Pokemon and choose their lead Pokemon.

About Activity Decisions

Activity Decisions / Coin Flips: We are changing the rules for activity / coin flip decisions for this tournament. In the event that there is an uncompleted match at the deadline, it will be coin flipped unless one or both of the players involved in the match specifically request an activity win and explain sufficiently why they deserve to win over their opponent. Attempting to schedule a battle is required in order to receive the win by activity. To make it clear that you are requesting an activity win when you post, you must open your post with "Activity Win Request" in bold.

Special thanks to the UU forum for the idea.
