Welcome to the fifth cycle of the Monotype Seasonals! This is the second of three tournaments in the third Monotype Seasonal and the 2020 circuit, meaning wins in this tournament WILL count towards the Monotype Ribbon, as well as the Seasonal rankings.

  • This is a standard SS Monotype tournament
  • This tournament will be DOUBLE Elimination
  • All rounds will be Best of Three. You may switch teams in between battles of the same set.
  • Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown!
  • To encourage the development of the metagame, and so that everyone is on an even playing field, all matches must have replays recorded. If neither player posts or at least saves replays of the match, the game will be coin flipped regardless of whoever won.
Standard Rules and Clauses
  • Baton Pass Clause: Baton pass is banned
  • Same Type Clause: Pokémon in a team must share a type.
  • Sleep Clause Mod: Limit one foe put to sleep
  • Species Clause: Limit one of each Pokémon
  • OHKO Clause: OHKO moves are banned
  • Moody Clause: Moody is banned
  • Evasion Moves Clause: Evasion moves are banned
  • Endless Battle Clause: Forcing endless battles is banned
  • HP Percentage Mod: HP is shown in percentages
  1. Identity: I expect many battles to be completed under alts. This can be bad for tournament security, and thus I will make this clear: If I hear any whispers of identity theft (battling as someone you are not) or proxy battling (helping someone else battle through pm) I will not be pleased and I will take severe actions.
  2. Scouting: Next, I do not want to hear anything about counterteaming, at all. Do not complain about it. I also don't want to hear about any blatant scouting. There is a difference between "[user] is known for using Fire-type" and "let me follow [user] around all day to watch all his battles since I am his opponent". I expect a lot of the former and none of the latter. I give permission to all battlers to ask any person spectating their battle to leave if they do not want them watching. Everyone will have access to your replays from earlier rounds though.
  3. Timer Clause: As for taking long between moves, if your opponent asks you to hurry up, please oblige. If you are doing a damage calc for a key turn that is one thing, but prolonging every move is suspicious and annoying. Don't do it. Furthermore, Battle Timeout is a rule for a reason. If you run out of time, you lose, simple as that. It does not matter what your opponent says. Do not battle if you think you will have to leave mid battle, and instead reschedule for a better time.
  4. Disconnections: Finally, in the case of a disconnect, the decision is in the hands of the player who did not disconnect. The options are: redo the battle move for move, redo the battle with the same teams but different moves, or redo the battle with completely different teams. If the battle was without a doubt over, they may also take the win. Any suspicion that a disconnect was committed on purpose to redo a match may be appealed to me, and if I feel this happened there will be severe consequences, don't do it.

Pawwz  vs  Fírnen

Wow this guy pawwz is insane!! Round 8 and he's still in the winner's bracket, damn what a legend. he's winning this one for sure (and i will just ignore that his opponent has also made it this far without losing)
alright since i am on my 1902919029012092th day of quarantine and bored and some bum bug stall user isn't doing predicts anymore, i figured its time to step in and take his job therefore unemploying him out. (not that his job was good either, and definitely not like another user wanted me to do them)


 vs  zugubu royale - prof otaku is a prof and an otaku at the same time. probably rly rare as anime and intelligence dont ever mash up well (proof here) so im favoring him.
le LLiolae  vs  Zukushiku - i only know zukushiku and even then might not really know because last time i spotted that was like 40 years ago but tbh better stay safe lads
Pawwz  vs  Fírnen - yk this is a battle between two elephants that somehow climbed up a tree without any reasonable explanation. backing up the one who (unexplainably) escalated one True Lumber.
DugZa  vs  dahli - predict hax and gg. jk this could go either way, hl match for sure. even tho dugza's my dude I think peachy's slightly better


 vs  Brumirage - better win to get in MPL this time (or not)
1 True Lycan  vs  Averardo - better player, not much to say here
Tico 21  vs  Dieu Amphibien - brazilian clause activated
Ticken  vs  yedla - thick ticken is ticking the triumph tho I'm not ticken on ticken ticking it
fuck off mat im still doing it within a week of this round being posted its close enough


Prof.Otaku  vs  zugubu royale - Zugu is the better player but i would never rule him out of going insane and tilting
le LLiolae  vs  Zukushiku - dont know much about either of these 2, but both are obviously quite good but i can kinda pronounce zukushiku's name so he gets the nod here
Pawwz  vs  Fírnen - this mu is too easy to pick, pawwz complained about me not picking him in previous rounds and frnen wants me to pick against him its just fallen right into place gj flux
DugZa  vs  dahli - unfortunate that this wasnt a winners finals mu, id say these 2 are the best players in this tour rn and it should be a hl match. however dugza has a very poor name change lined up though so i cannot pick him to win


Splash  vs  Brumirage - id say splash has the upper hand in this mu but if brumi gets a few sangrias in before this game it could be anybodies
1 True Lycan  vs  Averardo - dude do you really think i can back against the goat that 6-0d water with a fucking lunatone??? dont be stupid 1tl literally cant lose
Tico 21  vs  Dieu Amphibien - damn dieu really mixed it up last round by not bringing steel again, who fucking knows what is going to happen maybe hell bring steel all 3 rounds again its chaos
Ticken  vs  yedla - can you guys just agree to a monothreat? i want to see ticken in his greatest tier pls

zugubu royale
