Go team, gl pablos

(5) Shiny Charizards vs Lullaby Vullabies (5)
SS: S1nn0hC0nfirm3d vs EternalSnowman - ho3n is tied with onarceus for player with most swag in the pool
SS: GoldCat vs Ark - upset, goldcat has had a great run in this tier recently and was a steal but ark is just very generally solid and i think they can def pick up wins like this
SS: Star vs Sabella - farms like nobody else
SM: Xiri vs QWILY - solid upset candidate but ill take xiri
ORAS: Highways vs Abejas - ranked them both abt equally but edge to abejas who has done rly well in this tier before (last sd/pl?)
BW: NHelioX7 vs atomicllamas - love the llama who is in finals of an ru ssnl now and has just played way more than helio
DPP: Void vs fatty
ADV: Roseybear vs shiloh - rosey does well in all these formats, cares a lot, picks them up well etc so ill give them the edge wk1
GSC: Diophantine vs Earthworm - upset since while earthworm is the goat, im told he does tend to start 0-2 before going beast mode and destroying everyone
RBY: Ika Ika Musume vs Lord Thorx - ika ika + ara ara is too weeb ew


(5) Bulk Up Braviarys vs Rabioots (5)
SS: EviGaro vs Kushalos - evi had a solid streak in this tier during nu swiss if i remember correctly but i considered kush top3 in the pool for sure so gotta give edge there
SS: TJ vs freezai - think theyre about even both have done great recently
SS: Elias PSY vs xavgb - two innovators, xavgb is saner
SM: Splash vs quziel - quziel isnt in oras??? ill take splash out of sheer shock
ORAS: gorex vs Luck O' the Irish - think gorex is fairly predictable in this tier so will wait until he shows off some new stuff (which i hope he does) to bold him. quziel support is also a massive factor
BW: cb aaron judge vs Nalorium - iirc nalorium
DPP: Bughouse vs Heysup - in their friendly rivalry heysup usually has the upper hand i believe
ADV: neomon vs banks - not sure whether banks has touched this tier, heysup support is solid but neo seems liek the type to bring smth wild to take advantage of that
GSC: Holly vs vani - sure they live and breathe this tier
RBY: Oiseau Bleu vs Enigami - top 3 rby vs just slightly below that (iirc i had oiseau #4 on my list)


(3) Dewford Duckletts vs Neo Siphylis Sigilyphs (7) (how did i end up here wtf LOL)
SS: sensei axew vs mncmt - senseis the fucking goat but i feel like he is nerfed a lot when playing his friends. stop being so nice you have a lot of friends in this pool... he also didnt want to play SS idt
SS: OnArceus vs Meri Berry - hes so cool i bet dani builds him something w like specs altaria that owns
SS: daniYSB vs tlenit - think they played in some nfe or zu ssnl and tlenit won so sure. hope to see dani do well as starter tho
SM: HANTSUKI vs Askov
ORAS: poh vs Spl4sh - poh prob cares more and i think hes very very good though spl4sh is good too
BW: Togkey vs Monai - monai is super epic in bw tiers
DPP: HSOWA vs Beraldinho - beraldinho has had a good classic run but 9-0 last nupl was insane, bolding hsowa every time
ADV: Jisoo vs Hyogafodex - jisoo is better in this tier but i think hyoga is rly good and can pull off the upset
GSC: Lunala vs Siatam - ppl say hes the truth in gsc, im not sure ppl say luna is even in gsc
RBY: pac vs Koalacance - little better i think? he had some nice wins in UUSD

Predicting for the lads
RBY: Khaetis vs Serpi
Serpi is an absolute demon in RBYPL and the only user to beat Enigami, and it was twice over. Generally just an extremely strong player of the generation, he's consistently done well everywhere. Khaetis is amazing though, had a similarly great record in general and being notorious for their extensive knowledge of the game as well. This should be our highlight for the week, hoping to see some cool teams and big plays! Just two big titans duking it out.

RBY: Ika Ika Musume vs Lord Thorx
Not sure about this one. Lord Thorx has historically been good at RBY lower-tiers and is a competent player in general, but Ika has quite a bit of history in RBY as a whole, so perhaps they have the better fundamentals. I'm leaning towards Thorx for the recency bias, though this could go either way! I'm very excited to see what Ika brings to the table.

RBY: Oiseau Bleu vs Enigami
C'mon, don't make me pick between these two...they're both sick. I'm gonna have to go with Enigami for their near-perfect record in RBYPL, giving smackdown after smackdown, until Serpi came in and elbow dropped him. Enigami has paid very close attention to RBY lower-tiers in general and has managed to find numerous strategies. Perhaps there's more up this mad scientist's sleeve! Oiseau Bleu is certainly no pushover either though, known for being the king of RBY Ubers with his fantastic, consistent performances across the board.

RBY: pac vs Koalacance
DUCKS BEST TEAM LET'S GO! I'm obviously biased, but I believe in my boy here. pac is fiercely passionate about NU and has contributed greatly to the tier's popularity amongst RBYers. Think about how Holly acts for GSC: yep, that's our pac. With his weird science and support from HSOWA and I, I think he'll pull through! Koalacance has few public records of playing the tier past Pre-Alpha, but they did pull the wool over EB0LA in UUSD just a few days ago, beating him 2-0. Last I checked, I believe only Torchic has pulled that off before in the past year, and RBY UU has been in quite a few tournaments. They're coming off hot: will they burn out, or will they burn us?

GSC: Diophantine vs Earthworm - should be an interesting match to watch between two great gsc players but hard to predict against earthworm in any gsc tier tbh, feel he's definitely more invested in NU specifically too than dio is.

GSC: Holly vs vani - Cannot predict against the ceo of gsc nu. Holly is probably more motivated to build in an play this tier than the rest of the pool combined and will assuredly bring a fantastic teambuild. As long as she doesn't go overboard with a team that ends up kinda having issues from exploring too much like in week 1 of uusd she should have a comfortable advantage here, but vani could definitely pull this one out of the bag as a solid gsc player if he preps well.

GSC: Lunala vs Siatam - Again there seems to be a noticeable GSC NU experience gap here. Siatam is highly invested in this tier and a solid GSC player and while Luna is a solid player in her own right the GSC experience gap is definitely noticeable. This could certainly still end in an upset if Luna has the GSC support and plays solidly though.
 
Ika Ika Musume vs Lord Thorx - seems like the stronger RBY player to me, we faced off in Seasonal WF once and it could've gone either way
Oiseau Bleu vs Enigami - OB might have to switch up his controlled/defensive playstyle to win in NU, especially vs a solid NU player like Enigami. Or maybe he'll find new ways to play NU? Either way, this should be a good one
pac vs Koalacance - pac is notorious for winning week 1, but Koala definitely has a chance if he gets a good grasp on NU, dangerous player

hf Khaetis & Servines, excited for the runback​
 
This was not fair. Earthworm specifically told me to play at lunch time knowing I would be hungry so that he could win the war of attrition by playing the long game. He used a similar tactic against FriendOfMrGolem120 in SPL where he made FOMG play at midnight and brought a no-wincon stall team to force a 1000 game draw. He is clearly known for using the timezone differences to his advantage. I propose we ban unviable timezones from Smogon unless they can accommodate.
