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:
Teams and Managers
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
