Hello Gamers, Were YOU Interested in being a Masquerading Mimikyu this BLT? Fear not! I'm going to give you guys a list of what to do, and what not to do.
(This list will not allow you to 100% grab a spot but it should help)

First off for what TO DO
DO- Play SS Monotype, I'm on the lookout for some hidden gems in SS and honestly it bores me to both play and build this god forsaken tier so I hope you guys can carry the load, that being said I am willing to help ofc.

DO- Have a cute anime girl profile picture on Smogon.com. This is a surefire way to get noticed by me bonus points if its some1 i think is underrated.

DO- Ask me for tryouts in the form of AMQ and other anime related games. Alternatively I also accept tryouts in SS Monotype.

DO- Seem nice and I'll be tricked into thinking you're a good draft pick based on your personality, I know you're all scum but I tend to be fooled easily.

As for what NOT TO DO The list is much easier and honestly if you do these things it's your fault.

DO NOT- post things like "Significant Time Missed: Smoking and kicking ass. " this is cringe and I will assume you'll be away Smoking in your room by yourself.

DO NOT- Be named Dugza

DO NOT- Ever bring up how I went 1-2 and then got benched last blt(I was new). I won't hesitate to charmflash you on the spot.

DO NOT-I really can not Stress this one enough but please god don't pm me about your anime taste and lead off with something retarded like "I really enjoy Boruto" or "sakura is a really underrated girl honestly". these are horrible takes and Might land you on the do not draft list. I will post that later in the week at some point too don't worry.

That's all I could think of. good luck everyone I hope you get drafted onto the team of your choice this coming saturday.
Lastly Special Shoutout to RAP Yogurt for not qualifying even tho I told him to.

Hello Gamers, Were YOU Interested in being a Twinleaf Togekiss this BLT? Fear not! I'm going to give you guys a list of what to do, and what not to do.
(This list will not allow you to 100% grab a spot but it should help)

DO- Be a Helpful presence in Monotype chat.

DO- Be aligned with: Lawful Good, Neutral Good, Chaotic Good, or Chaotic Evil. Never has a Togekiss not been one of those four.

DO- Enjoy playing the games: Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, Chess, Super Mario Bros 3, Mario Galaxy 2, and/or Yoshi’s Island. These are all top tier games, and should be appreciated by any Togekiss.

DO- Appreciate good poll making

DO NOT- Start beefs with other teams; that’s the manager’s job.

DO NOT- Consider yourself a single type main. Your name being CharizardKid23 doesn’t give you a pass to play fire this gen.

DO NOT- Forget basic mechanics of your gen. If one of my players gets caught running knock off in gen 5 I may have to step down.

DO NOT- Associate yourself with any evolutions of starly

The first MOCK of the ILLUSTRIOUS Best Leaderboard Tournament has concluded, and I am here to share the results, so without further ado;

with our 5 undrafteds being:

But fear not; this isn't the real thing so just because you went undrafted here doesn't mean you'll be undrafted in the real thing!
 
Ok so for this Mock I really tried to get into Attributes head and draft what I thought he would draft and personally I think I did a phenominal job of doing that

SS: GotCookies
SS: Yami
SS: Tieracid
USM: Wyn
ORAS: Ferno
BW: Namranan
Sub: Maki's Fox

And I think that everyone can agree that I have done a great job of placing people in the perfect tier for them to perform.
 
Alright Gamers I'm back With another very good and very helpful post concerning this Monotype BLT. first off let me say that this one isn't actually for the players, it's more a resource for my fellow managers to use, as I'm sure not all of you have the trillions of IQ that I do, I'll share some of my thoughts so you're not at a disadvantage in the upcoming BLT draft.
I'm gonna give a few pros and cons (or maybe just 1) for each and every player that qualified. I hope this helps.

Conflux
pro-
Has a lot of experience and can probably play every gen decently at least.
con- Now only has 1 X in his name and he uses the Gladion Avatar.

Nexecutioner
pro-
I heard he's pretty decent overall and played in the last blt (I think)
con- Monothreat isn't in this tour so he won't have home advantage.

Splash
pro-
He's got a youtube channel so your team get's that publicity.
con- His youtube channel isn't very popular so you won't actually get any.

Chaitanya
pro-
Will be very motivated since he can't go to the casino during this epidemic. I suggest picking him early (like first pick)
con- has been called "toxic" and will tell people they're bad for a misplay, refrain from drafting easily offended users alongside Chaitanya.

Typhlosion08
pro-
Qualified week one which is a good sign
con- Didnt sign up :/

Yami
pro-
Can be a decent player when they're mental isn't exploding. also competing with soma for the title of "dragon master"
con- I can't put my true feelings in here or I might get banned, so I will just say that Yami is known for being a "john" haha

Twilight Solace
pro-
A really fun dude and he will single handedly keep your NSFW chat alive
con- Might go missing to play COD

DugZa
pro-
Currently the Mono ribbon holder, despite what everyone might say Dugza is pretty good sometimes.
con- He can be a whiny bitch during these so dear god prepare for him to change teams twice a day and then make fun of your banner.

Kaguya Lys
pro-
He's really good at prepping imo and shouldn't be underrated going into this draft
con- He uses normal vs me a lot so he's a virgin. Also He likes to hide his replays in Pokepastes LMFAO.

Wyn
pro-
He's really fun and he always wins with his aids HO flying in Oras
con- He hasnt played a tour game since before I was on this website what the fuck.

yedla
pro-
It's a gut feeling but this guy is destined for greatness.
con- I can't tell if it's a l or a I in his name and honestly it's kinda aids.

Ronman5
pro-
He beat Kev in Mono LC or something and while it's not that impressive it is pretty funny.
con- the fact that beating Kev is the only pro I could think of.

Ferno
pro-
Is cute sometimes and helped me make my legendary gen 5 grass team for MPL
con- Is prone to clicking the wrong team and losing to users like Poison Adhesive, will most likely complain about it the rest of the tour.

Fylkir Pudin
pro-
Is a lucky fucking dog and will usually hax his way to victory
con- Will use you to gain social standing and then throw you aside and make fun of you for liking anime.

Nailec
pro-
He may have nail in his name but he's not afraid to screw your bitch
con-fluxx's friend which makes him aids by default :3

zugubu royale
pro-
Zugu is pretty funny and really good with the RPG in shellshock
con- Might get banned mid tour (again)

Endal
pro-
Has good team name Ideas and he's pretty chill
con- He thought I was namranan once and I'm genuinely really offended still

Ssalbap
pro-
Bap actually win's a lot even when he's not really trying, underrated player
con- Toxic rat and will spit in the call a lot, it's gross.

blinkboy
pro-
This guy played well in all the blt tour games I saw so I think he might be an underrated pick this draft.
con- Might be sad because Susan Test keeps turning him down.

Dandy Highwayman
pro-
He does good in seasonals and uses a lot of whack sets but will win with them
con- I've heard he's really quiet in team tours so he might not be a good chat presence lol

Floss
pro-
This dude brought fire punch Gallade once and it killed my teammates scizor, I still don't know why he had fire punch Gallade though
con- He won't tell me who's in nexus so I hope he goes undrafted, also he wouldnt put keldeo on his water team.

Crashy
pro-
Lot of Oldgen experience and a really solid player imo.
con- He made himself the grand wizard role in a discord of ours so I think he might be racist.

dahli
pro-
Probably the best player of the usum pool and a really fun guy to talk to
con- I think his type usage is kind've predictable and he thinks reverse racism isn't- I mean yea predictable types sometimes.

volcanionisgood
pro-
Volcanion is pretty good in some tiers
con- Sadly it's not really that good in Monotype

BitchKicker
pro-
He's 100% that bitch
con- His name is kinda fucking with me since he said himself he's that bitch but he's also a bitchkicker? Idk|

TezGreninja
pro- i
mo is one of the best SS slots in this tournament great player
con- Was tutored by perish song so he might have gotten worse if he took perish song's advice, probably best to teach from scratch.

Riku Sakuraba
pro-
Is a really nice guy and he definitely watches anime, + he was FIRE in MLT
con- Is prone to being snaked by managers (Attribute)

TheTacoMan
pro-
Enough food for the whole family, he's the tacoman!
con- A diet of only Tacos is pretty unhealthy I think.

Caspell
pro-
He's actually pretty fire I teamed up with him during intro tour, I do recommend.
con- I don't think he's played in many mono tours so might be lacking some experience

Prof.Otaku
pro-
This guy played pretty well during the blt tours I watched and he has a cute anime girl profile pic
con- I'm probably gonna draft him so you'll have to beat me to it.

GotCookies
pro-
He's actually a pretty helpful dude all memes aside, I really don't think he's a bad pick at all
con- Despite what I said above he's an idiot like 80% of the time.

Bondie
pro-
I don't know a ton about him but he's an oldhead and mono staff so he should be somewhat competent.
con- He angry reacted my last post. and due to being a boomer he might forget his scheduled times and get act losses.

tier
pro-
He's kindve good with flying in usum, He might tell you he can use water too but just tell him to shut the fuck up and load flying.
con- He's super aids a lot of the time.

Fírnen
pro-
He's been around a long time and I heard he's not bad despite not playing in too many tours.
con- I see him dropping some whack opinions when it comes to sets/mons so who really knows.

K3ppr
pro-
Did pretty good last BLT and was on the winning team + he's motivated to make a good showing for MPL
con- Despite the name keppr being open and having a better color he went for k3ppr, might have brain damage.

Namranan
pro-
He's a pretty motivated dude and if he stops bitching about fighting being bad he can do well
con- Pretty weak mental so you gotta keep his head in the game, also please don't draft him with Maki's fox they're below 18.

The Thunderbirds
pro-
He signs up for a lot of stuff I see this name everywhere, so hopefully he has some experience.
con- As shown by his post above probably has some confidence issues.

Cell
pro-
Really chill teammate and really good at oras, I expect a good winrate from him if he stays in ORAS (which he should)
con- He goes afk sometimes but hopefully not in the middle of the tour haha...

RahelGamer03
pro-
Decem's tuttee and he seems pretty motivated to improve, Looking forward to what he can do this blt
con- He seems like he also has some confidence issues and he's had that same boring profile picture forever.

Maki's Fox
pro-
He's really fucking bad at mafia however I think he has some potential at Pokemon
con- 1v1 main and like I said he's really terrible at mafia

ed wins
pro-
He plays kinda okay in GPL so hopefully maybe that means he'll do good here
con- He's one of the defcon goons so he's definitely toxic

Decem
pro-
Really solid player who had a good MPL record, and he's really fun to team with. great guy
con- He's Ssalbaps bitch so hopefully you draft both of them together otherwise he might throw whichever week he's vs baps team.

FU SHUN HA
pro-
He's really chill and a pretty decent player, should be a good mid draft pickup
con- Used to be a rogue goon which is a bad start, hopefully he's left that behind him.

kythr
pro-
Put's up really solid records in mono tours so far, expected to do rlly well
con- tends to make fun of teammates with not as good records as themselves......(it was me and I haven't forgotten)

Broccol1
pro-
Vegetables are pretty good for you and the song broccoli was kinda flames
con- Most likely vegan since he named himself after a vegetable, I've never met a vegan who was good at literally anything.

juleocesar
pro-
He knows a lot about grass in Monotype.
con- Has some Furry shit as his profile picture.

DYA
pro-
Really wholesome user and also likes anime, nb overall and was also on my intro tour team, what a lad
con- Has really bad Anime takes/Opinions.

Cognitohazard
pro-
He's so excited for BLT he smashed his fucking keyboard when he thought he didn't make it LMFAO
con- He plays like normal steel and water, he's literally a budget Prosaic.

You're welcome My fellow Managers :3

Eh I would say something but honestly... meh. I did fairly well in gens making it to round 5. Didn't have to roast me this hard though lol

I guess i'll have to make a few more pros by winning battles in this tour
