DOU SS Doubles OU Winter Seasonal - Round 2

  • This is a standard SS Doubles OU tournament
  • This tournament will be Double Elimination
  • Rounds will be Best of Three. You may switch teams in between battles of the same set.
  • Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown!
  • To encourage the development of the metagame, and so that everyone is on an even playing field, all matches must have replays recorded. If neither player posts replays of the match, both players will suffer an automatic game loss. (If you were in losers' when you played, you are both out. If you were in winners', the winner is in losers' and the loser is out.)
  • If you are found signing up under more than one alt, you will be banned from circuit events for life.
  • Activity calls will be made by me, potentially with neutral assistance from a TD. Coin flips will be done on PS!
  • In the event that something is added to or removed from the Doubles OU metagame in the middle of a round, that change will be in effect starting the next round.

lazatron put way more effort into scheduling than i did, if anyone wants to sub in they can have my spot otherwise i'd just like to drop
Stratos vs The Thunderbirds
Namranan vs lazatron

also i made a bit of a mistake. Martin is supposed to be in losers bracket and monsareeasy is supposed to be in winners, i got the result mixed up. (DON'T make a lose post next time please...)

1) the tenzai vs martin match for r2 is void. Sorry tenzai this is my mistake but the new pairings are:
2) this is directed to you monsareeasy and martin. while i made a mistake, neither of you paid enough attention to your places this round either. monsareeasy i can give you a pass because you had a bye, but there are no byes in winners after round 1. Martin went so far as to play his set knowing he was in winners by mistake (this isnt an OST sized r2). I'm happy to chalk this up to my mistake but i wont be so forgiving next time. please read the thread properly.

the challonge and thread have been updated accordingly

I am so sorry, I forgot that I inned to this and never opened smogon again since Friday lmao. My opp seems to be the best person that exists and we still playing tomorrow/friday >_>
I'm gonna have to make an administrative decisions thread soon ._.

Bvrvkkv has been found to be an alt of user Pwndkthnx. In line with Smogon rules, the alt will be banned. It has been decided that pwndkthnx/bvrvkkv will also be banned from this seasonal, due to concerns about potential advantages being gained from opponents not knowing the real identity of who they are playing. This doesn't affect much thankfully, being so early in the tournament.

Grillo gets a bye into round 3 losers
