DOU Official Doubles Winter Seasonal [Round 1] LINK YOUR REPLAYS

Not open for further replies.

  • This is a standard ORAS Doubles 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 replays of the match, both players will suffer an automatic game loss. (If you were in losers' when you played, you are both out. If you were in winners', the winner is in losers' and the loser is out.)
  • Every round, I will choose a match (possibly two) as the Highlight Match. If your match is chosen as the highlight match, two of our commentary crew (myself, Lohgock, Arcticblast, Laga, BLOOD TOTEM) will be commentating your match through the SmogonU Twitch, and it will then be uploaded to Smogon's YouTube. I will contact both players by PM immediately in order to schedule a time. If either player wishes to not be streamed, they may opt out, but let me know quickly, so I can choose someone else to be the highlight match for the week.
  • Because of the nature of the prizes of this tournament, if you are found signing up under more than one alt, you will be banned from circuit events for life.
  • I'm going to be playing in this tournament, so in the interest of fairness, all activity calls will be made by a neutral TD. If you get an activity loss, do not bitch to me, maybe you should have put more effort into playing your damn match to avoid that contingency.
Standard Rules and Clauses
  • Species Clause: A player cannot have two Pokemon with the same PokeDex number on his team.
  • Evasion Clause: The moves Double Team and Minimize are banned. (No other evasion boosting things are banned).
  • OHKO Clause: The moves Horn Drill, Guillotine, Sheer Cold, and Fissure are banned.
  • Endless Battle Clause: Anything capable of intentionally creating an endless battle is banned.
  • Uber Clause: Anything that appears on Smogon Doubles' banlist is banned. Because the dex page is outdated (i put in a pull request like three weeks ago but it hasn't been approved), this is the banlist for Smogon Doubles:


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.


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 stall" 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.

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.


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.

Scheduling Rules:

USE VM WALLS! If you really don't want to schedule via a VM conversation, then post in this thread to let me know that you are in contact with your opponent some other way. If you use VM walls, you do not need to post in this thread to let me know. (If you don't know how to access your opponent's VM wall, type their name in the search box
like shown). If neither player has established contact by the sub date, you will be at risk of a double sub. If one player has contacted and the other has not responded, he will be at risk of a sub. Unless you have clearly scheduled for a date shortly after the deadline (and cannot make a date before the deadline) you will be given an activity call instead of an extension. I'm not making the calls, so I can't promise what will or won't make you safe, but I know that activities which will up your chances are posting specific times on your opponent's wall, responding to their VMs promptly, and posting any IRC logs of you scheduling in this thread.

This round will end at 11:59 EST on Sunday, March 1st. I will make any substitutions starting at 11:59 EST on Wednesday, February 25th.

If you want to sub in, just post "in as sub" in this thread.



Banned deucer.

why do we have to post em anyway its not like I'd snake tesung out of a win by saying the fight didnt happen or anything lol

anyway just for u pwn!
2 reasons. first is so that everyone is on an even plane when it comes to scouting. second is so that people don't hesitate to post sets in c&c and the doubles forum in order to keep them secret.

VMd Lohgock, looking forward to this fun match :)
also Stratos there is this weird user called Pwnemon whose name appears on the matchlist but who doesn't seem to exist, perhaps you might want to look into this matter?
also: can i suggest italicising the interesting matches instead of bolding them so it doesn't clash with the win/loss formatting
