by popular demand, OLD GEN GOD / MONOTYPE MAIN METABEAST'S UNBIASED PREDICTIONS

Sootopolis Sealeos (5) vs Dauntless Dewgongs (2)

USUM: Pak vs Arifeen | this is one of the closest games of the week. Pak had a really good Snake while Arifeen has been busy running the RU tier; both seem to have a wealth of monotype knowledge, although I believe Arifeen has more. You could make a case for either player to win here but I think Arifeen's more likely to luck into matchup win so predicting him
USUM: Shiba vs Kaori | a uu main and a doubles main face off in the second slot. I don't think shiba is good? while kaori is at least good at doubles and gsc giving him a small edge i guess
USUM: Star vs Charmflash | star is a really good player and I think charmflash is probably below average.
LC: obii vs Quote | gonna have to predict against my clan member here. i don't really think quote plays pokemon, and while obi is obi, he did win in ruwc today and has shown flashes of battling skill. he also has the jerk tiebreak so.
Ubers: Jase Duken vs MJ | i played mj before i think? and he didnt seem that amazing iirc? so i guess the other guy can have the benefit of the doubt
AAA: 1 True Lycan VS Megazard | the monotype community and goons like lax seem to be on this guys dick so i guess hes sensational
STABmons: Funbot28 vs Quantum Tesseract | irrelevant players who cares
Monothreat: rozes vs Xiri | rozes is probably a good player in this playerbase and prob cares about this random ass metagame so.

Ever Grande Eevees (0) vs Rustboro Raptors (7)

USUM: Feliburn vs trash | this game's pretty much a coinflip between 2 friends, one of whom lax snakes at every turn. i'll trust lax to get the matchup edge here, though, so gonna give the game to trash.
USUM: TJ vs LAX | oml monotype king lax goin against some random ass goon. jokes
USUM: trace vs Pearl | i think this guys an ru player? i think? anyway pearls been way too hot lately to predict against so this game should be a snackwrap
LC: cb aaron judge vs Kushalos | bro cbt been on smogon since like spl 4 or 5 and he still isn't that relevant. the chef gonna cook
Ubers: Catalystic vs Alpha Rabbit | i've at least heard of rabbit i guess and he'll probably hav good team support. he did make into snake lol..
AAA: Sylveon. vs Sabella | sabella in terms of this tour is probably really good, especially considering that he used to play mono a lot i believe. he's literally playin a dude who named himself after a pokemon, which is never a good sign for someone's battling capabilities.
STABmons: Jrdn vs Betathunder | irrelevant players once again
Monothreat: KevinELF vs rnbs | this guy was hyped iirc i did beat him in a prior mono tour but he seemed competent enough ig

Croissan Copping Chikoritas (2) vs Good Civ Goodras (3)

USUM: Chaitanya vs Wanka | idk how good my manager is. idk how good wanka is either but he was in the tug / squad jerk / anti-jerk so he can have the tiebreak
USUM: Trichotomy vs Leru | leru had a solid snake and really came on during the later stages. he's definitely a better player.
USUM: -Tsunami- vs Eien | this game will b interesting. this guy's good from what I hear, so I'd label it a coinflip honestly. HOWEVER, I am a monotype don and im giving myself the jerk tiebreak so there u go.
LC: Nailec vs dhaarma | irrelevance
Ubers: Mysterious M vs EternalSnowman | one guy is greek and the other guy has leru's support so wrap.
AAA: Waszap vs Hamhamhamham | i still dont think this hamx9 guy is that good and i've heard of waszap before ig. giving him the benefit of the doubt.
STABmons: Ransei vs skysolo14 | irrelevance
Monothreat: Nexecutioner vs Misaka Mikoto | irrelevance

Native Natus (2) vs Rascal Ralts (3)

USUM: Paleo vs ima | ima's competent but this guy seems pretty hyped up from what i've seen.
USUM: Harpp vs Croven | well, idk why a doubles main is in SM again but. he was at least in spl so theres that.
USUM: Wincon vs double switches | irrelevance
LC: Kingler12345 vs Finchinator | kingler's prob in between average and slightly above average. finch is a tryhard so he'll prob figure out LC and i think he's the better player so.
Ubers: EviGaro vs MiyoKa | evigaro seems to b competent and everyone seemingly hates miyoka so. i think she can play well enough to win.
AAA: smub vs Tyke | irrelevance
STABmons: sed vs Sae | irrelevance
Monothreat: SirSkit vs Moosical | i originally had this as a tie but the other guy legit can't spell surskit like come on.

Sootopolis Sealeos (5) vs Dauntless Dewgongs (1)

USUM: Pak vs Arifeen | A definite highlight for sure. Could really go either way.
USUM: Shiba vs Kaori | Apologies in advance to my Sidepup manager, but I gotta go w/ Shiba here. After boasting an impressive record in the previous MPL, I'm more inclined to believe that his knowledge of the metagame (amongst a more cohesive unit in building) will get him very far this MWP.
USUM: Star vs Charmflash | Couldn't call this one tbh. I'd be more inclined that Star would be better suited playing Mono LC, though this skills in regular format are still very high. Charmflash is also an undoubtedly skilled player, but I'm unsure what he might bring to the table against a team with many skilled players and builders in the regular format.
LC: obii vs Quote | Again, couldn't really call this one.
Ubers: Jase Duken vs MJ | Ubers and Mono player with the talents to combine both tiers cohesively. There isn't a doubt for me.
AAA: 1 True Lycan VS Megazard | The 1 True Monotype Kingpin should find himself with another successful record this season. Megazard isn't a slouch either when it comes to OMs however, so this will be a very good match.
STABmons: Funbot28 vs Quantum Tesseract | QT's better knowledge about Monotype and its OMs should net him the W here.
Monothreat: rozes vs Xiri | rozes playing ability + Ticken's amazing threat building should make this a clear favorite.

Ever Grande Eevees (1) vs Rustboro Raptors (5)

USUM: Feliburn vs trash | he sported a better record in MPL and has an incredible team support behind him. Should be a good win.
USUM: TJ vs LAX | Man has been on fire for the past few months, can't really see him dropping this one.
USUM: trace vs Pearl | Goat Pearl is literally amazing. Phenomenal playing ability plus Lax + Sabella teams will take Pearl extremely far this tour.
LC: cb aaron judge vs Kushalos | Chef cooked up a W as I was typing bop
Ubers: Catalystic vs Alpha Rabbit | I'm not too sure tbh. Should be a good watch.
AAA: Sylveon. vs Sabella | don't have much doubts here.
STABmons: Jrdn vs Betathunder | They're both amazing at STABmons, but Betathunder has better monotype experience afaik. It'll be very interesting to see this play out.
Monothreat: KevinELF vs rnbs | I don't doubt rnbs at all, but I question how he'll fare against a player more up to date with the current meta.

Croissan Copping Chikoritas (1) vs Good Civ Goodras (3)

USUM: Chaitanya vs Wanka | Chaitanya's been on a pretty good streak for himself, being very consistent in the previous MPL as well as seasonal tournaments alike. Wanka can still put up a fight however, especially with Eien and Leru's amazing building behind him.
USUM: Trichotomy vs Leru | Trichotomy has to pull out all the stops for arguably the best player slotted in this format.
USUM: -Tsunami- vs Eien | Monotype Kingpin.
LC: Nailec vs dhaarma | Both players of a similarly equal level in this format. Will be a good watch.
Ubers: Mysterious M vs EternalSnowman | Both are very good Ubers players with a similar unfamiliarity in the Monotype Ubers format (to my knowledge). Should be very interesting to see how this plays out.
AAA: Waszap vs Hamhamhamham | Monotype master vs. OM god. Don't know who's winning this one.
STABmons: Ransei vs skysolo14 | I'm personally just not too sure, but to my knowledge Ransei has more experience.
Monothreat: Nexecutioner vs Misaka Mikoto | Legit who is the other guy?

Not predicting my own team bc we'll be winning lol (bad STABmons mu however unfort)~

PR is coming out soon btw, don't worry~

Hi its jase here! sealeos gonna need your help. We can’t sweep charmflash’s team and free chras unless you give us your credit card information. All you have to do is give the numbers in front, date when it expires, and the 3 numbers in the back. Be quick or else chras may stop posting memes and charmflash ruins Christmas this year!
