Twinleaf Togekiss () vs Fashionista Florges ()
SS: Bondie vs Confluxx - Confluxx is probably the better player but ss is a shit tier so bondage gets the wyn here
SS: Fírnen vs Nailec - both foreigners who i barely see play but nailecs beaten me before
SS: Caspell vs Kaguya Lys - who
USUM: Twilight Solace vs Splash - mr abby has more experience i'd say than plashbrutha, idm wont save you this time
ORAS: Decem vs tier - tier is a genuinely annoying person at times but decems tiny so he could lose
BW: Ronman5 vs FU SHUN HA - UNDEFEATED BABY

vs
Masquerading Mimikyus () vs Marauding Marowaks ()
SS: yedla vs TezGreninja - luckypiper said tez is good but pipers also a massive fucking snake so he probably sucks
SS: Prof otaku vs smub - not sure smub plays pokemon
SS: Namranan vs Nexecutioner - nams bad and nex is a major pussy so i dont know
USUM: Dandy Highwayman vs dahli - biggest skill gap of the week
ORAS: Wyn vs Cell - wyn finally comes back to tours and this is how hes treated? fucking ridiculous that you clowns think your subjective views on "fairness" can overrule the actions of two managers you're all honestly fucking cowards who are bullying wyn for no reason please consider not doing that
BW: zugubu royale vs DYA - dya sounds like dyla and id probably give dyla a win here but dya isnt dyla so go zugu

vs
Slateport Scorpions () vs Snowpoint Staravias ()
SS: Fylkir Pudin vs Floss - fylkir is the only person i know who plays ss
SS: K3ppr vs kythr - i thought kythr WAS k3ppr what the fuck
SS: The Thunderbirds vs ed wins - the thunderbirds is a wholesome lad on the opposite side of the fucking planet, if this game happens he'll win
USUM: Chaitanya vs DugZa - one of these guys is the ribbon holder and the other.. isn't lol
ORAS: Crashy vs Riku Sakuraba - if you ask someone like eien crashy is going 0-12 in this tour but you're an idiot if you think hes losing to riku sakuraba
BW: GOT cookies vs Yami - cookies is still somehow the least liked on the team from outside perspective but hes gonna win this easy

also i would like to reiterate just how pathetic it is that monotype staff bullied luckypiper into undoing the trade. it truly makes you all seem like massive pussies and it makes no sense even, wyn hasnt played a tournament in like 3 years and you people still hold him on this pedestal of greatness (his words btw) yet Crashy has actually played and has the rings. pretty ridiculous behavior by the mono staff and other managers, but i'll stop here before i get infracted.
 
Twinleaf Togekiss (0) vs Fashionista Florges (4)
SS: Bondie vs Confluxx - gotta bold my tutor here 'w', also arguably best SS player?
SS: Fírnen vs Nailec - leaning nailec because I haven't seen firnen in a tour environment (zoomer problems), but this can go either way.
SS: Caspell vs Kaguya Lys - Caspell's my guy, but Ayayayayayaya's probably got this.
USUM: Twilight Solace vs Splash - this a wash tbh, Mrs. Abby went 3-0 in MPL while playing well, but Splash followed up with a solid LTPL (more competitive pool).
ORAS: Decem vs tier - picking tier here because Attribute prep, and Decem's ORAS helper is Bondie, who's an SS main now? As long as tier avoids some of his *questionable* plays.
BW: Ronman5 vs FU SHUN HA - goat guy, and he's lit at mons. He'll probably pick up BW well with Attri's guidance.

Masquerading Mimikyus (2) vs Marauding Marowaks (4)
SS: yedla vs TezGreninja - Tezzy's breakout tour? LGI
SS: Prof otaku vs smub - smub may be crusty, but I've seen one of Otaku's ladder games... didn't go that well.
SS: Namranan vs Nexecutioner - Nex's underrated in general (outside of threat), him being able to self-prep will be a boon on this team.
USUM: Dandy Highwayman vs dahli - Peachy prevents the Piper curse from becoming a thing, nuff said.
ORAS: Wyn vs Cell - This is a pretty intriguing slot, but I think wyn brings one of 2 Ws home for the Mimikyus.
BW: zugubu royale vs DYA - Love DYA, but neither have picked up this tier consistently before, and Zugu's better.

Not doing predicts for my own team, for obvious reasons.
 
not doing predicts for your own team shows you lack confidence in your team
Slateport Scorpions (1) vs Snowpoint Staravias (5)
SS: Fylkir Pudin vs Floss - stay bug, you'll probs win anyways
SS: K3ppr vs kythr - stay old gens
SS: The Thunderbirds vs ed wins - stay (guilt) tripping
USUM: Chaitanya vs DugZa - stay toxic - ferno
ORAS: Crashy vs Riku Sakuraba - stay bw
BW: GOTCookies vs Yami - stay benched

Ferno stay beefing
 
Twinleaf Togekiss (3) vs Fashionista Florges (1)
SS: Bondie vs Confluxx - Confluxx has the better pfp.
SS: Fírnen vs Nailec - idkkk
SS: Caspell vs Kaguya Lys - I used to play wizard101 when I was 8, I am sure Caspell did, but Kaguya didn't so he is the better player.
USUM: Twilight Solace vs Splash - idk x:
ORAS: Decem vs tier - Decem is my tutor, tier is not.. I am showing favoritism
BW: Ronman5 vs FU SHUN HA - ppl were fighting over u


vs
Masquerading Mimikyus (4) vs Marauding Marowaks (1)
SS: yedla vs TezGreninja - Usually people with Animals/Pokemon in there name...they don't make it past the 1100s in any ladder..BUT yelda you better do your research before you get shurikened out of this BACON LETTUCE TOMATO tourney :)
SS: Prof otaku vs smub - one word for you smub, melmetal.
SS: Namranan vs Nexecutioner - idk .
USUM: Dandy Highwayman vs dahli - OMG I'm a FAN!. who is dand-?
ORAS: Wyn vs Cell - Wyn has returned and has been SWEEEEEPING through these priceless players. "Cell- the smallest structural and functional unit of an organism " Sir you don't stand a chance and statistics says you are NOT wynning this. Dismissed.
BW: zugubu royale vs DYA - I thought dyla was dya at first too ferno BUT. zugu's username reminds me of like a animal/zoology type feel and I like animals. so the win goes to zugu. Its Zugu > Its Dya

vs
Slateport Scorpions (6) vs Snowpoint Staravias (1)
SS: Fylkir Pudin vs Floss - you better floss your teeth for this one, the only way your sniping fylkir out of this one is IF you run Choice Itemed Fire!
SS: K3ppr vs kythr - Hey ! I am giving you BOTH the win because I don't really know. You all should really so Sword & Shield OMS to make it more interesting. Perish took out CAP, and he may be wondering why I don't bug him anymore- well now he knows why.
SS: The Thunderbirds vs ed wins - yeah leave me alone . YOU LAUGHED after critiing my precious toxapex and said it DIDNT MATTER. Toxapex needed to be alive CLEARLY .
ORAS: Crashy vs Riku Sakuraba - Riku I don't think your ready for this HEAT CRASH crashy is about to bring you ;3
BW: GOT cookies vs Yami ..He has cookies...and yami doesn't...

Side Note: I am not showing favoritism at all towards left-sided teams. tyvm for your cooperation
 
Damn I am so fucking bored rn so have some more predictions

Twinleaf Togekiss (3) vs Fashionista Florges (3)
SS: Bondie vs Conflux - Fluxx is probably the best ss player in the pool but Bondie is hopefully going to bring some sick scrafty team and I want that to win
SS: Fírnen vs Nailec - Fírnen has been playing a fair bit of ss and I don't have any idea how good Nailec is tbh.
SS: Caspell vs Kaguya Lys - Goat Caspell vs johning extraordinaire, I'd back Kaguya to win this and contrary to popular belief he will still be able to hide his replays somehow
USUM: Twilight Solace vs Splash - I do not have access to the Togekiss' NSFW chat thankfully but knowing jt there probably isn't one. Therefore Twilight Solace's motivation to play for the team will be low and he will lose. Also splash likes oras iirc so like he will probs win
ORAS: Decem vs tier - If this was decem vs defcon I'd back defcon for sure but tier just isn't as good imo and this isn't gen 5 PU so...
BW: Ronman5 vs FU SHUN HA - The illustrious Out Your Ass will not lose this one

Masquerading Mimikyus (2) vs Marauding Marowaks (4)
SS: yedla vs TezGreninja - Tezzy really is the goat and ngl I don't really know who yedla is.
SS: Prof.Otaku vs smub - I can't bring myself to back a dude that calls himself an otaku
SS: Namranan vs Nexecutioner - As we all know by now SS is the matchup tier, and imo nex is much better at prepping so should win this
USUM: Dandy Highwayman vs dahli - No real reason to explain this one, everyone else has done it for me, taide is good though so he could take the win
ORAS: Wyn vs Cell - We miss you wyn, ferno is an absolute wreck without you :(
BW: zugubu royale vs DYA - I know DYA wanted to stay as far away from gen 8 as possible but really did not expect him to go all the way down to gen 5 lol, Zugu is the better player for sure but if there is any hax in DYA's favour then zugu could 100% just derail and fall apart which is always fun to see

Slateport Scorpions (6) vs Snowpoint Staravias (0)
SS: Fylkir Pudin vs Floss - Damn I really got put up against the SSNLs winners finalist this is fucking rigged. All ik is I'm not going for any supereffective moves against any of his mons because at least 5 of them will have some shit berry that makes no fucking sense, and with this incredible strategy, I believe I have what it takes to win. Also floss picked me to win which either means he is trying to sound unbiased or is low on confidence
SS: K3ppr vs kythr - These 2 are 100% the same person and should be tourbanned for playing under alts smh, I have no idea how they've gotten away with it for so long. But k3kkr is on my team and kykkr isn't so obviously I'm going to back him to win
SS: The Thunderbirds vs ed wins - Apologies Bewear-Sama but The Thunderbirds is on top of the world right now after getting drafted and even you can't bring him down. Also when play for gens I don't want to get yelled at again for johning.
USUM: Chaitanya vs DugZa - If Chait ever stops arguing with ferno and actually plays this game he will probably win, DugzA is pretty good though, just ask him.
ORAS: Crashy vs Riku Sakuraba - Highlight match imo. All I hear is our supreme leader talking shit about crashy because of his poor record last mpl???? and Riku is definitely underrated as fuck, picking Crashy though because he's on my team
BW: GotCookies vs Yami - I've been told by at least 5 different people that they are sorry that cookies is on my team, even after the Chait + Ferno beef??? I'm so fucking confused dude but he's winning this for sure

2-2 v poor
 
not predicting ss cause lmao what?
Masquerading Mimikyus () vs Marauding Marowaks ()
USUM: Dandy Highwayman vs dahli - peachy has been one of the better sm players in recent memory. taide, on the other hand, isn't exactly the most proven individual and isn't exactly the most motivated one either. although, his motivation may change since luckypiper is his manager. luckypiper also claims peachy to be one of the more easier people to predict in terms of what team hes gonna bring, so perhaps this may be closer than what meets the eye. but for now, i will favor the more proven player in peachy in a significant edge
ORAS: Wyn vs Cell - battle between 2 of what i consider the best oras players in the pool. the way i see it is that wyn is the better player but cell is the better builder. however, the margin in which cell is a better builder is a bit larger than the margin in which wyn is a better player. with that being said, i give cell a small edge in what should be a good match
BW: zugubu royale vs DYA - neither really play bw but zugu has played it a couple of times in mpl, though that was 2 years ago. experience nonetheless, in which i feel like dya doesn't have aside from playing it i assume only in roomtour qualifications. dya most definitely has the motivation to do well here and definitely does have the better support which should boost his chances, but i still gotta favor the better player

Slateport Scorpions () vs Snowpoint Staravias ()
USUM: Chaitanya vs DugZa - i think chait plays in such a way that generally matches up well vs how dugza plays, and i don't know if hes gonna adapt to that. because of this, i will give chait a decent edge here
ORAS: Crashy vs Riku Sakuraba - crashy i believe is the better battler and has access to good teams. idk how motivated he is in this team environment (i heard it wasn't good but not sure), but he should still have a big edge vs an unproven riku, despite probably being very motivated to win here in his first ever blt game first ever because i accidentally snaked him last year
BW: GotCookies vs Yami - well, these two apparently have beef so this should be interesting i guess lol. cookies is most likely a better builder and definitely has the better support. meanwhile, yami got top 2 in gens which is enough for me to say that hes at least a better player than cookies. i don't really have a good read here, but ill favor cookies cause of the better support and me not buying into the idea of many people saying that hes the "worst player ever"
