Manager: me

Assistant Manager (if applicable): Magnum

Team Name: Spunching Scizors (in honour of Jomatoes ily)

List of Accomplishments:
Me- I’m a constant contributor to the tier, being a Trial QC member as well as have written multiple analysis for the tier, and hosted multiple successful projects such as How to Lure as well as co-hosting Matchmaking. I’ve had a quite successful tour showing in Natdex for all the tiers bar mono, with reaching Top 12 in the Winter Seasonals, Top 12 [and still going!] for the NDAG Minitour, Top 16 for the NDUU open, as well as have been building teams and helping prep for my NDWC team which reached finals. I have also managed and played in multiple side Discord PL’s that include Natdex that have had successful results such as Miraage/Cy PL where my team won, ArrowPL where we had a successful showing, as well as some other miscellaneous tours. Outside of Natdex i’ve also been supporting and playing in teamtours such as WCOP, UUWCOP, PSPL and ROA Olympics. Im also a Tutor for the tier, showing that I have sufficient knowledge of the metagame.
Magnum-

(Not really that integrated with Natdex but is familiar with a lot of the playerbase, as well as been extremely beneficial support in multiple team tours such as UUFPL as well as UUWCOP, while also playing. Although he isnt a Natdex player himself, his UU knowledge can easily be imparted onto our NDUU teammates, as well as providing invaluable support in terms of helping to build and test matches)

Why would you make a Good Manager?: I am familiar with pretty much the entirety of the tiers playerbase, and I would say i have good relationships with all of them, as well as I feel I can motivate and support my fellow teammates, while fostering a positive yet competitve environment to thrive in.

Discord Leader
Manager: Aurodian
Assistant Manager (if applicable): omicorio
Team Name: Die Lit Drifloons
List of Accomplishments: I have managed in the first iteration of NDWC, managing to reach semi-finals, along with qualifying for the Natdex Circuit Championships last year. I am also currently a QC member, Forum Mod and PS! Room Moderator for Natdex, with Omicorio being a PS! Room Voice and former PS! Room Moderator.
Why would you make a Good Manager?: We have both managed in several Discord team tours and know the community very well, and think we can combine both experience and player knowledge to have an active teamchat and manage a NDPL team to success.

Manager: cy
Assistant Manager (if applicable): avarice
Team Name: Radiant Raikous (logo tbd)
List of Accomplishments: I participated in the first iteration of NDPL, Avarice and I both participated in NDMPL, and I helped team Asia in NDWC with NDUU + NDOU. I have managed West in RoAWC as well. Additionally, I have managed in a plethora of Discord tournaments that housed strong Smogon players and have a extremely high playoff / finals rate. Avarice has managed UUFPL and PUWC, reaching finals in both and is getting good tour experience with SCL.
Why would you make a Good Manager?: I would say we're both fairly competent with managing and are able to create a strong team environment. We are both knowledgeable of the ND player base and are confident in our ability to support all slots/players, and we have more than enough capability to draft a strong team.

Manager: Kate
Assistant Manager (if applicable): Optify
Team Name: Brazy Braixens
List of Accomplishments: Multiple high tour placements and wins, including two NDAG tour wins and a recent ndou ssnl finals run. Qualled for both ladder tour and grand slam playoffs. I'm a room mod, a VR council member, and a tutor. As for Optify, he's provided invaluable support in both NDWC and PSPL, along with being a former tutor and room driver.
Why would you make a Good Manager?: My first managerial experience which wrapped up two weeks ago in AGPL had my team reaching finals tiebreaker. I know how to create both a fun and winning environment. Additionally, I know virtually the entire ND playerbase, and for the ones I don't, Optify surely does. This leads us to be confident we can draft a successful team.

Manager: pannuracotta
Assistant Manager (if applicable): Lasen
Team Name: Mugiwara Pelippers
List of Accomplishments: I WON NDPL 1 ALONGSIDE THE POGGING PEXES. also have had some tour showings. Made last year's circuit championship where I made the top 10.
Why would you make a Good Manager?: I have been playing NatDex for over a year now, I'm well versed in all the metagames and I've also been a semi-consistent contributor to the community, being a QC member and doing some other miscellaneous project stuff, hosting/helping a few projects and resources such as potw, votw, and the set vr. Due to all of the time I've spent in the community, I am certain that I have one of the best grasps on the community and which people would form a good team together. Lasen on the other hand, has a ton of experience managing, having managed the most recent ompl, cap snake and cappl, and Ubers Most Wanted, as well as leading a RoAlympics team for two years. While I'm pretty sure this guy has never touched a game of natdex in his life, his managing abilities are stellar and he would not only bring knowledge of people outside the natdex community but also be able to create a fun environment for a team chat. I think my metagame and community knowledge in tandem with his experience as a manager would create one of the best manager duos.

Manager: Sputnikk

Assistant Manager (if applicable): faded

Team Name: Stalwart Skarmories

List of Accomplishments: I managed and played in the last NDPL. I've also competed in multiple tourneys and am on both the Metagame Council and the VR Council as well as being a tutor and working on the Lab.

Why would you make a Good Manager?: I did take a significant break from mons over the summer for IRL work purposes but I am fully back now and have more than enough time to effectively manage and support my team. I view myself as having the capacity to make good team decisions and provide folks with the support and teams to effectively play and compete in the tournament. We didn't do so hot last NDPL but I'm very excited to bounce back and potentially lead a winning team. I hope to create an environment that is both competitive and a really great time for everyone playing.

Assistant Manager (if applicable) Mario34

Team Name: Based Bisharps

List of Accomplishments: I've supported for tours like NDWC and PSPL, while also being a mod for ND room and VR and Set VR Council, while also have competed in a couple of forum tours. Meanwhile, Mario34 has managed in side PLs and reached the ND Money Tour Finals while qualifying for NDLT this season.

Why would you make a Good Manager?: This is a big step I'm personally taking, and I'd be extremely invested for this tour. We know the community fairly well and have been very active in it for the past year, I am absolutely positive that we'd provide a positive team atmosphere and be able to support our team efficiently and we are looking to go big for sure.

Assistant Manager (if applicable): Kris

Team Name: DOWN BAD DRAGONITES

List of Accomplishments: Playing for TPP Bannedorus Therians (wins be going up like the stonks baybay) and managing the Stinky Stunkys with Kris in OMSL, not much tour experience but I'd say I'm a good builder and have had success in playing in multiple tiers, not just ND.

Why would you make a Good Manager?: I'm currently managing with Kris in OMSL (STINKY STUNKYS) and I'm usually on top of things like setting schedules and keeping up with my duties on a time constraint. I'm also a high school teacher who co-leads the art department, so I have credibility with handling important duties. Kris and I will be as down bad as possible to clean up this tour (and stink up OMSL).
