Smogon Tournament #5

Basic Battle Rules
  • Species Clause
    • You cannot have more than two of the same species of a pokémon on your team.
      • Example: You cannot have two Charmanders on your team.
  • *Uber Clause
    • Pokémon in the "Uber" tier list are not allowed to be on your team. (Note: The Tier List was static and became set after the Shaymin-S Vote)
  • Sleep Clause
    • You cannot put two of your opponent's pokémon asleep at the same time.
      • Using moves that put your own pokémon to sleep like rest will not trigger the Sleep Clause.
  • Evasion Clause
    • A pokémon cannot use moves raise its evasion stat.
      • Traits and Moves that indirectly increase a pokémon's evasion do not break this clause.
      • Items like Brightpowder do not break this clause.
  • Freeze Clause
    • You cannot freeze two of your opponent's Pokémon.
  • OHKO Clause
    • A pokémon cannot use moves OHKO moves.
      • Example: Fissure
  • Self-KO Clause
    • If both players are down to one pokémon each, you are not allowed to use a move that KOs both pokémon to force a tie.
      • If a recoil damage move forces a tie, then the Self-KO Clause does not trigger. Please notify Sonuis if this happens during your match.
Specific Rules
  • Please send a log to Sonuis labeled like so: Round # - Name vs. Name (Score as Win-Loss). These are vital to getting your matches counted. If you are having a format issue when you open up your log, rename its file extension to .doc.
  • Scouting: This is a blanket rule. Understand that it is severely frowned upon, but it can't be controlled by any means. So if any player playing their match, I want to ask that you leave if they request so. Please resource the original creating/joining a tournament thread.
  • Contacting: The best way to get your match done fast and make the tournament progress faster is by contacting your opponent and setting up a date to battle! Here are some ways to contact your opponent!
    • Send them a private message on the Smogon Forums.
    • Contact them on the Smogon Chat Room on the IRC network Dejatoons. For a guide as how to get to the Smogon Chat Room, click here!
    • Check your opponent's user profile and see if they have an Instant Messenger nickname for the same program you use.
    • Maybe they have their e-mail available to the public too!
Smogon Tournament # 5 Predictions Tournament

Rules
  • When an ST5 round begins, players will be delayed for three days before they can start their match. This is the period for which you send in your predictions.
  • You will send your predictions in to a flunky found in the list below.
  • For each correct prediction, you will receive a point.
    • The points received for each correct prediction each round will change.
  • You do not lose any points for incorrect predictions.
  • If you fail to send in your list, you will be ineligible to receive points for that round.
    • Example: If you send your predictions on time for R1, you will get points for each correct prediction. However, if you don't send in your predictions on time for R2, then you won't receive points for R2. If you send your predictions on time for R3, you will get points for each correct predictions, and so forth.
  • During R1, and only on R1, any substitution for any sort of match will result as a correct prediction. In following rounds, if you picked a player who did not complete their match and was DQed, your prediction will be marked as incorrect.
Sending Predictions List and Flunkies

Each participant will be assigned a flunky to send their prediction list to. When you learn who to send it to, create a .txt file with your predictions labeled as so: Nickname - Round # Predictions. You will then upload the file to a file sharing service, or your own web space to download. Good services would be Sendspace, Megaupload, Mediafire, Rapidshare, or zshare. Once you have uploaded your file, copy the share link and PM your assigned flunky with it so that they can download the file. If they are unable to acquire the file, your flunky will notify you. Here are your flunkies!

It's recommended that you create an account on one of these services as if your predictions file gets lost, it can be recovered and recounted.

You already know your flunkies, send `em!

Points for each correct prediction for R2: 2 Points

Note: I am still waiting for point tallies to come in, so I can't give you your points yet. When they are all in, I'll update this thread with the points.

me and gouki did spotlight matches -_-

SPOTLIGHT MATCHES:

.Baris. vs. Aeolus

Baris, one of the best battlers the country of germany has ever produced, finds himself matched up against the legend of Aeolus, one of Smogon's finest admins and the former head of Battling 101. These two will produce one hell of a fight. A great way to start off round 2.


Aeroblacktyl vs. HECTORtu

MoP is perhaps one of, if not the best, tournament player in Pokemon, always going far in tournaments. However, the Smogon Tournament trophy has not been his .... yet. MoP is looking to eliminate the very aggressive, yet very good, HECTORtu.

Articanus vs. Twist of Fate

Relatively new, but feels like they have been with us forever would be a good description of Articanus and Twist of Fate. Both are young talents looking for big opportunities and this may the biggest one yet. Both are very good at what they do and that is Pokemon. And both were recently rewarded a tutor badge. Who will win in this clash of the new tutors?

Earthworm vs. binabik

If you have underestimated binabik, then you might have already lost the match. He is very good, yet somewhat unknown to some. Earthworm is coming hot off his recent Smogon Tour 6 win, and is looking to add another trophy to his collection.

Hipmonlee vs. Antique Roadshow

Hipmonlee is one of Smogon's vets and Antique is one of our newer challengers but he is just as good as anyone else. Hipmonlee has a track record of doing pretty well in Smogon Tournaments but AR is no slouch himself. This should be a great battle.

Duskie vs. Mystica

Duskie, one of GameFaqs best battlers squares off against Mystica, one of Smogon's most potent, and dare I say attractive, battlers. These two are definitely up for the challenge, both coming back to win the trophy. Should be a good one.

oh and good luck to my opponent by the way

Seriously wtf, these matchups are too crazy. I think my list might have been shorter if I posted the non-highlights -__-

Looks like this round will be a milestone, due to the fact that a large chunk of good players will be eliminated no matter what happens.
 
Wow lots of good pair ups!

I'm not sure who Duskie is but i'm sure it will be fun =) Wait, since when is pokemon fun ~_~

Cool round. I don't know if it matters much but I ditched my numbers, so I'm Jimbo now.

I'll send a PM to Taxie when I'm less busy (finals atm)

SoT, saying you have my AIM could be a little creepy!

Anyway, I expect an amazing match and this will be done quickly (heheheh)

And by quickly, I mean within the first couple of days lol.
 
Ok, very interesting. I lose to unorthodox play styles, so maybe a R2 exit for me? Good luck Articanus, and to the rest this round.

I actually like these pairings since there are so many good players that have a forced exit this round. Nah, but seriously there are many good matches to be had this round.

PMing my opponent.
