Welcome to Week 11 of Random Battles Team Tour VI, where 8 teams will compete for the title of RBTT Champion as well as a custom avatar another prize TBD, because RBTT VI is now officially the largest tournament to ever take place on the Pokémon Showdown! subforum, and every team was granted avatars!

Tournament Rules
  • The tournament will consist of 8 teams battling it out in a round-robin format over 7 weeks; after that, the 4 best teams overall will move onto playoffs.
  • Each series will be played as best-of-3.
  • Matches are to be played on Pokémon Showdown.
  • Do not make baseless activity posts. After good-faith efforts to contact your opponent, report missed times & scheduling issues only.
  • Replays of the matches must be posted to verify a win; if replays are not posted, the match doesn't count.
General Tournament Rules
  • Scheduling: Players should contact their opponents on their Smogon profiles as soon as possible. It is strongly advised to schedule publicly, on Smogon, so hosts can review in the case of possible activity calls. If a player cannot reach their opponent, they should inform their managers quickly, so necessary substitutions can be made. If players have not made visible contact, managers and hosts may make substitutions.
  • Timer Clause and Disconnections: The timer is not required to be on during games; however, if the timer is on and a player runs out of time, their opponent wins the game via timeout. If a player disconnects and thus times out, this also counts as a loss for the player who disconnected.
  • Do not ghost. As of recent tournaments-forum rules, this also includes calcing for teammates that are playing, so please do not delegate doing calcs to your teammates when you play.
    What constitutes ghosting in a Random Battles game can be a particularly fine line. Before speaking in chat, always ask yourself: “Would my comment reveal information that hasn’t already been explicitly revealed in this battle?” Examples of ghosting include suggesting that an unexpectedly fast Pokemon must be holding a Choice Scarf, that a disguised Zoroark’s level proves it’s a Zoroark, etc.

Last week my predicts were 47% correct, so these probably mean absolutely nothing:

Team Hoopa (7) vs. Team Latias (5)
Gen 9 Random Battle: shiloh vs JJ09LIE -- shiloh beat Fant'sy in a pretty impressive set, so I'm putting chips in them moving forward
Gen 8 Random Battle: Zap vs Tuthur -- Zap gonna zap em
Gen 7 Random Battle: bobomania vs Aquaa -- Hype asf mu, I think bobo has an edge here. Aqua seemed to have a little rust last week.
Gen 6 Random Battle: Tomahawk vs Lady Writer -- Lady Writer played very impressively vs RSQ last week, I think the extra rands aptitude will serve them well in this mu
Gen 4 Random Battle: TheFranklin vs Trade -- Trade beat me sooooo
Gen 3 Random Battle: Rach vs Ereshkigal -- Rach si GOATed in most oldgens, gonna be hype to watch their first RBTT game in years
Gen 1 Random Battle: YBW vs Leru -- YBW stands for Yery Bood Wins
Gen 9 Hackmons Cup: Shadows4 vs sunsets -- I think sunsets has a little more ingenuity here
Gen 8 Battle Factory: temp vs MichaelderBeste2 -- temp has more experience and knowledge in bf than Michael and played great last week
Gen 8 BSS Factory: Emboar02 vs Dragonillis -- Dragonillis plays bssf in the most wildcard way ever based on last week, which can pay dividends in bssf sometimes
Gen 8 Random Doubles Battle: odr vs Eeveon7 -- Was very impressed by Eeveon last week
Gen 9 Doubles Hackmons Cup: Eeveeto vs DOOR MONEY -- I am unfamiliar with this person, exciting to see their first game of the season

Team Palkia (6) vs. Team Yveltal (6)
Gen 9 Random Battle: Separation vs pokeblade101 -- blade got slightly haxed last week so that might continue, great mu though and interesting to see blade move to gen 9 since he's also putting in good work on that ladder
Gen 8 Random Battle: BoRida vs Glop -- Glop is a great mons player but his all-rounder capabilities are really being tested here
Gen 7 Random Battle: MaswoodShaheb vs LordST -- MAS :] I believe that Mas will go unbeaten this year
Gen 6 Random Battle: Xceloh vs Buhrito -- Buhrito beat jacked so he will be able to muscle through Xceloh now
Gen 4 Random Battle: El químico del pueblucho vs Dj Breloominati♬ -- I still want to say Spitfire do well thie year but qumico is a gen 4 all star fr
Gen 3 Random Battle: Amaranth vs xGang -- Sheet god xGang beat Anna so he's begun his trajectory toward topping the sheet yet again
Gen 1 Random Battle: tylerfitz8 vs nicomirra123 -- tyler is one of the best in this format, sticking with the winning side
Gen 9 Hackmons Cup: Zephyr Dragon Lord vs platinumCheesecake -- See above :P Winning side FTW
Gen 8 Battle Factory: jonfilch vs kythr -- Absolute all star matchup, though both lost last week
Gen 8 BSS Factory: papiloco vs luisin -- luisin managed to beat STABLE so they have a nice shot here
Gen 8 Random Doubles Battle: Chris32156 vs Memoric -- I caught Chris' game and disagreed with some plays, but dubs is a very playstyle-based thing so it doesn't mean that much. Didn't catch Memoric's but they are a good dubs player.
Gen 9 Doubles Hackmons Cup: soTsoT vs Lucas2543 -- soTsoT is legitimately great at this format, as much as DHC is high variance they def have the edge imo

Team Chien-Pao (7) vs. Team Zarude (5)
Gen 9 Random Battle: Fant'sy Beast vs LoSconosciuto -- Losco won last week while Fant'sy didn't, but this is extremely hype
Gen 8 Random Battle: Piyush25 vs Sylveon used calm mind -- Vibes idk, Piyush seems a bit fresher here
Gen 7 Random Battle: GaryAjax vs Betathunder -- Beta is extremely formidable in this
Gen 6 Random Battle: Blui vs Micaiah -- And Blui is extremely formidable in this :eyes:
Gen 4 Random Battle: Jytcampbell vs SMB -- Another highlight match, just based on my memory of both players in past RBTT series I've played vs them
Gen 3 Random Battle: trace vs freezai -- I want a video
Gen 1 Random Battle: Panty&Stockings vs Mikon -- More experience in this format
Gen 9 Hackmons Cup: Nudepantsman vs MultiAmmiratore -- A little more creative, might see some cool gambits
Gen 8 Battle Factory: crying vs Wigglytuff -- Traditional strong BF player in RBTT, comeback arc after losing to temp feels correct
Gen 8 BSS Factory: DEG vs Mishimono -- More impressive series last week IMO, all I have to go off as I'm unfamiliar with both
Gen 8 Random Doubles Battle: jackofspadesman vs teresbahji -- Teres is good at dubs
Gen 9 Doubles Hackmons Cup: frostyicelad vs Ciro napoli -- Based on a sample size of one, I think Brits are good at DHC

le moi est incommunicable
is a Pre-Contributor
Team Koraidon (6) vs. Team Mewtwo (6)
Gen 9 Random Battle: Xeizar vs Michielleus - Two great players but maybe a slight edge to the ever ressourceful Michielleus
Gen 8 Random Battle: R1C3M4N vs peap - peap is always solid, but in the "solid" way you expect from a top player, so i'mma bold them
Gen 7 Random Battle: Casual dot exe vs ajhockeystar - aj seems to have shaken out their RBTT5 curse, but cde is a surprising player
Gen 6 Random Battle: Rage.Spam.Quit. vs Petros - okay, enough with the (relatively to rbtt this time) "newcomer" story
Gen 4 Random Battle: Celever vs PrinceOfAllTacos - Celly is the berry
Gen 3 Random Battle: Clementine vs HeadsILoseTailsYouWin - m'en veut pas Clem il me fallait quelqu'un pour que ça fasse 6-6
Gen 1 Random Battle: Luchik vs Rage - I think luchik has proven themselves to be a more solid, more consistent player in the tier by now
Gen 9 Hackmons Cup: Altthiel vs Fragments - magical Fragments is back?
Gen 8 Battle Factory: blunder vs Regnite - not too much to say here, should be an enjoyable series to watch
Gen 8 BSS Factory: zioziotrip vs STABLE - Dragonillis did it, slaying the giant, but will the giant recover from that blow?
Gen 8 Random Doubles Battle: queso vs snorlax142857 - queso is a trustworthy dubs player. Last year did not see this match up happen so i'm pretty excited ngl
Gen 9 Doubles Hackmons Cup: jasprose vs JonahRamone - Celly said it british are pretty good at DHC

Team Hoopa (8) vs. Team Latias (4)
Gen 9 Random Battle: shiloh vs JJ09LIE - two great players, shiloh played very well last week though
Gen 8 Random Battle: Zap vs Tuthur - bolding another old skymins as if it was a passion
Gen 7 Random Battle: bobomania vs Aquaa - Bobo is growing more and more as a serious threat in the tier and I'm not saying that because they destroy me everytime now. Aqua still plenty much ressourceful so I hope they will bounce back from last week loss
Gen 6 Random Battle: Tomahawk vs Lady Writer - LW cementing themselves as a great player even further, slight edge to them
Gen 4 Random Battle: TheFranklin vs Trade - I am now convinced arce9 is just too good
Gen 3 Random Battle: Rach vs Ereshkigal - faut bien que je donne gagnant quelques français ça va se voir sinon, lesgo Eresh!
Gen 1 Random Battle: YBW vs Leru - YBW is more experienced in this weird thing and now that Tangela is fixed, bad things can't happen right.
Gen 9 Hackmons Cup: Shadows4 vs sunsets - A great match up ngl, I'm surprised to see sunsets stay in HC given their past great results in gen8 rands, but i have been convinced despite their w1 loss. Shadows still more experienced in hc in a team tour context
Gen 8 Battle Factory: temp vs MichaelderBeste2 - the highlight of the week, and one of the highlight of the tour as a whole. Maybe slight edge to the German.
Gen 8 BSS Factory: Emboar02 vs Dragonillis - une fois mais pas deux? mais bonne chance
Gen 8 Random Doubles Battle: odr vs Eeveon7 - can't hide it anymore, although i'm convinced by odr's journey into dubs territory so far
Gen 9 Doubles Hackmons Cup: Eeveeto vs DOOR MONEY - DHC is a bad format but those are good players so idk, going with the one who's more used to play around tiny mons

Team Chien-Pao (4) vs. Team Zarude (8)
Gen 9 Random Battle: Fant'sy Beast vs LoSconosciuto - LoSconosciuto is one of the best randbats player and one of the more flexible. Fant'sy is getting more and more recognition as a player but the italian is something
Gen 8 Random Battle: Piyush25 vs Sylveon used calm mind - Sylv has been crushing everyone for several years straight now and I still can't figure out how because let's face it Sylveon is less cute than Espeon
Gen 7 Random Battle: GaryAjax vs Betathunder - I'm ever so impressed by Beta so i expect good things to keep coming
Gen 6 Random Battle: Blui vs Micaiah - Two great players, giving the edge to the Italian again even though Dawn Brigade sucks
Gen 4 Random Battle: Jytcampbell vs SMB - two very great players, imo SMB is a bit more solid
Gen 3 Random Battle: trace vs freezai - no video for this week again
Gen 1 Random Battle: Panty&Stockings vs Mikon - P&S is a great overall player who is doing very nice things in gen1 as of lately but nessa is one of the absolute goat of the format
Gen 9 Hackmons Cup: Nudepantsman vs MultiAmmiratore - if I have to keep one hc/cc player and stick with it it's Chiori, and the fact they clinically played a very long battle against a wonder guard mon and won should be a good sign i'm right
Gen 8 Battle Factory: crying vs Wigglytuff - wiggly is a normal/fairy blob like come on
Gen 8 BSS Factory: DEG vs Mishimono - don't have much to say about bssf as always
Gen 8 Random Doubles Battle: jackofspadesman vs teresbahji - great match up, teres is full of ressources and usually fly above everyone in RBTT thanks to his 100k rands game experience. (No, I'm not going to mention the big jack arc development that struck the tour)
Gen 9 Doubles Hackmons Cup: frostyicelad vs Ciro napoli
 
Team Koraidon (6) vs. Team Mewtwo (6)
Gen 9 Random Battle: Xeizar vs Michielleus -- Michielleus literally won a gen 9 roomtour yesterday in Nederlands so this W is written in the stars. Succes man!
Gen 8 Random Battle: R1C3M4N vs peap -- Consistent good player. I have faith in you.
Gen 7 Random Battle: Casual dot exe vs ajhockeystar -- Casual makes really good plays and I believe they'll be able to pull it off once more this week.
Gen 6 Random Battle: Rage.Spam.Quit. vs Petros -- Very talented player. Good style. Deadly wits.
Gen 4 Random Battle: Celever vs PrinceOfAllTacos -- I'm a berriever (believer but different)
Gen 3 Random Battle: Clementine vs HeadsILoseTailsYouWin -- This could be a coin flip but I didn't expect clem to play gen 3 so I'll vote against them
Gen 1 Random Battle: Luchik vs Rage -- This isn't gen 4 against Lrogue so Rage definitely has a chance. Luchik is very talented though and has the power of the world cup behind them.
Gen 9 Hackmons Cup: Altthiel vs Fragments -- It's hackmans so this might always go crazy but I believe fragments is more experienced here.
Gen 8 Battle Factory: blunder vs Regnite -- Let's hope Blunder doesn't blunder.
Gen 8 BSS Factory: zioziotrip vs STABLE -- I remember watching awards last year and I believe ziozio won something ergo they're good ergo they'll win.
Gen 8 Random Doubles Battle: queso vs snorlax142857 -- Cheese
Gen 9 Doubles Hackmons Cup: jasprose vs JonahRamone -- ELLO MATE - I've played a lot of CC2V2 against Jonah to know that im better he will have a good series in another very random doubles format.

Team Hoopa (5) vs. Team Latias (7)
Gen 9 Random Battle: shiloh vs JJ09LIE -- The name JJ09LIE maks me think of the great song Jolene by Dolly Parton, also I know from experience they're a great player
Gen 8 Random Battle: Zap vs Tuthur -- Allez-y
Gen 7 Random Battle: bobomania vs Aquaa -- bobo won from me in ac in gen 6 so he should be fine
Gen 6 Random Battle: Tomahawk vs Lady Writer -- "Tomahawk chop is my death blow" - will be tough but I very much enjoyed rooting for Tomahawk in WCOR
Gen 4 Random Battle: TheFranklin vs Trade -- Arce9 incredibly talented + same as above
Gen 3 Random Battle: Rach vs Ereshkigal -- I believe Rach is taking this one home
Gen 1 Random Battle: YBW vs Leru -- both will do great but one will have the 1/256 thing happen twice to them...
Gen 9 Hackmons Cup: Shadows4 vs sunsets -- I think that the sun setting is more beautiful than the complete absence of sun
Gen 8 Battle Factory: temp vs MichaelderBeste2 -- Michael will live up to their name
Gen 8 BSS Factory: Emboar02 vs Dragonillis -- I believe in the power of dragon
Gen 8 Random Doubles Battle: odr vs Eeveon7 -- Hard pick for me so I'll choose Eevee here (tbc)
Gen 9 Doubles Hackmons Cup: Eeveeto vs DOOR MONEY -- (ctd) and I also choose Eevee here (perfectly balanced as all things should be).

Team Palkia (7) vs. Team Yveltal (5)
Gen 9 Random Battle: Separation vs pokeblade101 -- I think Blade will prevail just like they seem to do on the ladder.
Gen 8 Random Battle: BoRida vs Glop -- I've read the interview.
Gen 7 Random Battle: MaswoodShaheb vs LordST -- SORRY MAS but iirc LordST is godly
Gen 6 Random Battle: Xceloh vs Buhrito -- Xceloh can withstand the cold of the nord as well as the heat of the battle.
Gen 4 Random Battle: El químico del pueblucho vs Dj Breloominati♬ -- muy suerte duc <3
Gen 3 Random Battle: Amaranth vs xGang - I would have guessed Gang would win but I'm too late so I didn't guess wrong
Gen 1 Random Battle: tylerfitz8 vs nicomirra123 -- Based on Celly tyler is pro so I agree
Gen 9 Hackmons Cup: Zephyr Dragon Lord vs platinumCheesecake -- I always found the concept of Cheescake to be random so I think platty has an edge here
Gen 8 Battle Factory: jonfilch vs kythr -- I let /pick decide
Gen 8 BSS Factory: papiloco vs luisin -- I guessed
Gen 8 Random Doubles Battle: Chris32156 vs Memoric -- I saw a movie with Chris Evans and it wasn't too good (Knives out) therefore I'm going with Memoric
Gen 9 Doubles Hackmons Cup: soTsoT vs Lucas2543 -- I read the interview.

Team Chien-Pao (6) vs. Team Zarude (6)
Gen 9 Random Battle: Fant'sy Beast vs LoSconosciuto -- Fant'sy is incredible and has a fantastic beast alongside them sinds RBTT has commenced. Losco is also incredible. This battle will be incredible. However, I have to favor my countrymen.
Gen 8 Random Battle: Piyush25 vs Sylveon used calm mind -- Has been played but for the record I would have voted for sylvoat either way
Gen 7 Random Battle: GaryAjax vs Betathunder -- Beta is the new Alpha
Gen 6 Random Battle: Blui vs Micaiah -- Blui because it rhymes with SUIIIII (washed CR7 moment)
Gen 4 Random Battle: Jytcampbell vs SMB -- Super Mega Bork
Gen 3 Random Battle: trace vs freezai -- I was too late
Gen 1 Random Battle: Panty&Stockings vs Mikon -- Someone will get frozen :/
Gen 9 Hackmons Cup: Nudepantsman vs MultiAmmiratore -- This will be a cool match and really can go either way
Gen 8 Battle Factory: crying vs Wigglytuff -- Pls don't make Wiggly cry tho
Gen 8 BSS Factory: DEG vs Mishimono -- I just did what Celly did.
Gen 8 Random Doubles Battle: jackofspadesman vs teresbahji -- '-'
Gen 9 Doubles Hackmons Cup: frostyicelad vs Ciro napoli gg
