What a beautiful face, I have found in this place
Stark Sharks (0) vs (12) Wi-fi Wolfpack

SS OU: bro fist vs Star
SS OU: xray vs The Hallows

:blobuwu: awoo
 
SM OU: Eternal Spirit vs Gondra - 55/45. Gama is really good at SM but I wouldn't sleep on Gondra. I am not a personal fan of either ones team selection choices, so I eke Gama ahead by his more proven playing success.
ORAS OU: Luigi vs xImRaptor - 40/60. Luigi sucks and is a TD, thus he double sucks. Raptor was impressive in Snake, and while it wasn't ORAS that he played, he's vs Luigi (who is a TD).
BW OU: Zokuru vs Caetano93 - 50/50. Both kinda noobs but I admire Caetano's teambuilding innovation more. Zokuru is better in my eyes, but I have only seen him in SM/ORAS/ADV really. His playstyle does not lend itself well to BW.
ADV OU: dekzeh vs Alexander. - 65/35. I think dekzeh plays better pokemon and cares more about doing well. I would say the ceilings of these two players are very near one-another, so prep and effort will be the biggest factor -- both of which I lean to dekzeh.

SM OU: blunder vs Posho - 70/30. Last time I saw Posho play SM OU he brought regular Latios in Snake 2.
ORAS OU: CrashinBoomBang vs Lycans - 45/55. Both good, Lycans plays better pokemon more consistently. Unsure of his team sources though, PM me if you want help.
BW OU: John W vs dice - 35/65. Dice is one cringe individual but he sure is better at BW.
ADV OU: Gilbert arenas vs pasy_g - 60/40. Marcop is my vote for best ADV in the pool, only concern I have for him is that he himself seems to be tired of ADV. This might lead to some whack prep, whereas Pasy has a lot of support between himself, dice, and UD. Both play really well regardless so it'll be a nice match.

SM OU: Adaam vs ZoroDark - 40/60. Zorodark was fantastic when he was my teammate last year so I expect him to do well again. Get him to not be lazy and he will play good, aggressive pokemon for you. I have yet to see adaam play SM OU, but I have hope he is decent regardless.
ORAS OU: Sabella vs Quaze - 50/50. Both pretty good. Strange to see Sabella in ORAS, but I think he gravitates towards ORAS style teams in SM anyway.
BW OU: Fakes vs zf - 40/60. Highlight BW game for the week. Two good af players who both use teams that are suboptimal. I like watching zf play more, sorry fakes :(
ADV OU: eden vs CyberOdin - 50/50. I like this matchup because I go back and forth in my head over who I rank above who in my mental power rankings. A week 1 game is a good way to settle it.

SM OU: frisoeva vs Welli0u - 35/65. I think the well is just better. Both players come in with the best options for team support amongst the 10 teams imo. Welli0u's experience and recent dominance is irrefutable compared to friso though.
ORAS OU: Erzengel vs Sjneider - 40/60. Future West ORASer so there's a good chance sjneider goes 0-7, but if he doesn't his techs+good pokemoning will win him many games. I don't really know Erzengel, the 40 is an arbitrary number.
BW OU: SoulWind vs Pearl - 65/35. SW vs middle of pack BW guy sry pearl.
ADV OU: Conflict vs BKC - 45/55. Another great ADV MU. I like conflict's teambuilding a lot so I expect a show. BKC has likely been practicing his ADV up to snuff, and exp wise I think he has an edge.
 
Dragonspiral Tyrants (7) vs (5) Team Raiders

SS OU: TDK vs Trosko - depends on tdk's form really
SS OU: Christo vs reiku
SS OU: Nat vs Lusa - fun one im personally excited to watch lusa finally in the big stage after killing brazilian tours for 2 years
SM OU: blunder vs Posho
ORAS OU: CrashinBoomBang vs Lycans - should be closer than it seems. lycans is a top dog
BW OU: John W vs dice - a real test of consistency for john w, can he keep up the performace he showed in stour?

ADV OU: Gilbert arenas vs pasy_g

DPP OU: Heist vs. ToF (55-45)

I'm really looking forward to this one and hope both bring their A game. It's close both due to the two's skill level and their significant time away from the game, which leaves a lot up in the air (team choice, general playing). Other big factors include the effectiveness of the surprises Heist is known for, which tend to hit in a major way (hence the slight advantage), the aggression ToF has shown flashes of in recent years, which could see him execute his own strategy before he becomes susceptible to any tricks, and both players' current view of the metagame, which will shape their teams. Make it a good one guys
