Hey gamers! Gen 9 is here! There are lots of new mons, however balanced they may be, to explore as the new generation has hit. As an opportunity for a meta to develop, we will be having a Gen 9 Kickoff Tournament!
This tournament is an opportunity for us all to see the new Pokemon and the meta that they can fit in to. Will Flutter Mane dominate the tournament? Will terastallize manage to balance everything out? Or will Cinderace and Zamazenta prove to be balanced with the ability nerfs? Sign-Up to find out!
Note that this tournament DOES NOT count towards the National Dex 2022 Circuit, nor the 2023 Circuit.
