Welcome to the fourth edition of the Random Battles Team Tournament, and the first one where I'm not the Hoopa manager! The Random Battles Team Tournament is a tournament involving eight teams battling it out to become the best team at randomized formats!

Each team will have twelve starter slots and three substitute slots, which will be drafted in a snake draft format on January 3rd. This means that each team in a randomized order will select one player each round, which goes in a snake format of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. The draft order is: Yveltal, Kyogre, Marshadow, Lugia, Xerneas, Arcanine, Galarian Zapdos, Hoopa.

Tournament Formats

The twelve starter slots are as follows. All formats will be played as a Best of 3. When Challenge Cup 1v1, Challenge Cup 2v2, and CAP 1v1 are chosen for the Mystery Box format, they will be played as a Best of 5.

(do not put "the mystery box" as a format in your signups)

What is The Mystery Box?

This year we're shaking things up by using The Mystery Box slot, which is meant to be inclusive to as many random formats as possible and give drafted subs a more pivotal role. Each week, the format in the Mystery Box slot will change to a random format from the pool below. The managers will then assemble their teams based on what format is chosen for each week. Each format will be used once, and only once, throughout the whole tournament.

Gen 6 Random Battle
Gen 2 Random Battle
Gen 1 Random Battle
Super Staff Bros 4 (it'll be out soon, don't worry.)
Let's Go Random Battle
Gen 8 Doubles Hackmons Cup
Challenge Cup 1v1
Challenge Cup 2v2
CAP 1v1

To sign up for the tournament, please fill out the form below using this format. Signups will close on January 2nd. The tournament is expected to start on January 5th, and the regular season will last for the following seven weeks with playoffs and tiebreakers happening afterwards. Please state any potential inactivity in this time when signing up. Please copy and paste the form below.

Important: You may list individual formats in the Mystery Box in your preferences, but please also put at least one of the tournament's primary formats in your signup if you actually want to be drafted. Do not just sign up for "the Mystery Box". That's not a real format.
