Next to each pairing is the metagame you will be playing. Below some of the metagames is a hide tag with details about the metagame and where you can play it. Make sure you read the details in the hide tag
Why is there a qualifying game? tl;dr i messed up last round and this is the best way to fix it
When making the list of players before making pairings for round 1, I goofed up and accidentally left off Pikachuun and Drampa's Grampa. When they pointed this out to me, I assumed that I had accidentally made 1 pairing too few and so I paired them against each other. This was not the case, and as a result round 1 had 25 matches. A double elimination bracket does not work properly with 50 people, so I was in a bit of a pickle. Thankfully, 2 people dropped out of the tournament and brought us back to a much more manageable 48 players. However, this created another issue, which was that I had 25 people in winner's bracket and 23 in loser's.
To solve this, the two people who won via coinflip (jrm115 and Jajoken) will play a game against each other, with the winner going into the winner's bracket and the loser going into the loser's bracket. Seeing as neither played a game in round 1, this seemed like the fairest way to handle this. Think of this as just a delayed round 1 game. Sorry for the hassle
we made two gentleman's agreements btw, one was to allow megas whose post-mega typing didnt match their pre-mega typing if it changed to break out of the monotype, the second was to play on custom game bc fucc rom
