Welcome to the sixth annual Random Battles Team Tournament! In RBTT, eight teams battle it out to prove their skills in randomized formats.

Tournament Formats
Each team will play 12 matchups per week, with all formats played as best of 3. The formats are:

Gen 9 Random Battle
Gen 8 Random Battle
Gen 7 Random Battle
Gen 6 Random Battle
Gen 4 Random Battle
Gen 3 Random Battle
Gen 1 Random Battle
Gen 8 Battle Factory
Gen 8 BSS Factory
Gen 9 Hackmons Cup
Gen 8 Random Doubles Battle
Mystery Box (Note: do not list "Mystery Box" in your signups.)

What is Mystery Box?
Mystery Box is a weekly slot that enables RBTT to remain as format-inclusive as possible while also giving drafted subs a more pivotal role. Each week, the format in the Mystery Box slot will change to a random selection from the pool below. In the round-robin phase of the tournament, a format will be randomly chosen from the Mystery Box each week, with no repeats; thereafter, Mystery Box converts to a multi-format Bo3 slot wherein Game 1 will always be Gen 9 Random Battle, and the following game(s) are loser-choose from any extant Mystery Box format. Tiebreaker weeks will also follow this structure.

The Mystery Box formats are:
Gen 5 Random Battle
Gen 2 Random Battle
BDSP Random Battle
Gen 7 Bring 12 Pick 6 Random Battle
Gen 7 BSS Factory
Gen 9 Doubles Hackmons Cup
Gen 9 Monotype Random Battle
Teams and Managers
Each team will have 12 starter slots and 3 substitute slots, and will be drafted via snake draft format on January 14th. Each team, in a randomized order, will select 1 player each round, with draft order reversal at the end of each round (i.e. teams will draft in the following order: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, repeat). The draft order is: Koraidon, Mewtwo, Hoopa, Palkia, Latias, Yveltal, Chien-Pao, Zarude.

The participating teams and their managers are:

Team Koraidon managed by Celever and Syrinix
Team Mewtwo managed by javitu and Rage
Team Hoopa managed by Irpachuza and not a racist
Team Palkia managed by Tarrembeau and Xceloh
Team Latias managed by Magmar54 and MichaelderBeste2
Team Yveltal managed by pokeblade101 and Roginald
Team Chien-Pao managed by frostyicelad and articoo
Team Zarude managed by LoSconosciuto and za
