It's time to kick Sword and Shield 1v1 into overdrive! The wheels have been spinning with a lot of bugfixes to dynamax and a lot of dynamic-ish laddering, but Dynamic-ish falls to Dracovish! Let's get this pesky mechanic out of the way to give room to our favorite Water-Bug Type, Golisopod!

Think Small, keep at those EV details, and have fun (required).

Double elimination Tournament

- All matches are best of 5 and will take place on pokemonshowdown.com as Gen8 1v1
- Dynamax will be banned, and using dynamax will lose the user the match
- Replays are required

Highlight Matches:
Since new gen hasn’t played out yet i’m just going to assume that stars from last gen will be the most interesting to watch here

Freddy Kyogre vs. Jamez155 - Giving the edge to FK but I think this is still up in arms
Synonimous vs me - Cant predict my own mu
ryyjyywyy vs lost heros - Ryy has a whole new generation of Pokemon to mess around with, i’m giving the edge to him due to unpredictability
Kaif vs Robyn - Grudge match
 
HL matches & predicts
Waylaid vs XinosXinos
AllFourtyOne vs Sqookblooks
Kaif vs Robyn (4 games)
Synonimous vs pqs (i've met syn so he's going to win)
Freddy Kyogre vs Jamez155 (5 games)
ryyjyywyy vs lost heros (if everything's unexpected, nothing is)
TogliBabineBoeuf vs Osra (osra will forget about the tour and play shield and get acted)

HL Matches:

Freddy vs Jamez
This is close but i would rate Freddy more consistent and cause its a new gen i say Freddy.

Synon vs pqs
Again a very close game, but i think synon is the better builder especially this early into the metagame so slight Edge to him.

Ryy vs LostHeros
Its just ryy, he will bring some crack techniques that will work and he has a whole new gen to do so.

Tbb vs Osra
This is also close, but because of osra being way more active and building way more (when She isnt playing Shield) i would favor her.
 
filled out the ones I cared ab
Freddy Kyogre vs Jamez155 (freddy can build, and james can't cteam what he doesn't know)
M24 vs KawaiiiiPotato
Scraftionite vs aqh (idk who aqh is but welcome back scraft)
Cantius vs Close
Waylaid vs XinosXinos (I'm kinda scared lmao yech is a good builder)
Synonimous vs pqs (no program for gen8 but can't root against synon)
Yami vs Eriey (eriey has a cute dog)
Notater vs LittleRunnerXC (imagine ever thinking lrxc could lose what is essentially a build-war)
AllFourtyOne vs Sqookblooks (Vg to win it all)
Winkata vs stableprince569
Arai vs Marshme1to
WailJesus vs PartChandelure (sorry partman but wail is hardcore pokemon dude)
Kaif vs Robyn (i'd say sorry kaif but i'm really not)
Kickassin666 vs ExplodingDonkey (hi donkey)
D2TheW vs Smajet
Tom842 vs Boat (phiwings99) (toab)
SUSTENANCE_1 vs zugubu royale (dusk's cool gnag)
Y8 vs RaJ.Shoot
Lkjchjdhbjidcgjhd vs yaboifuyu (lkjc could only lose if his oppo says gg before the game is over Alakazam)
ryyjyywyy vs lost heros (edge to ryy)
London13 vs Maki's Fox (god i'm not gonna predict this. edge to london cuz no z-prima but ily makis)

TogliBabineBoeuf vs Osra (osra favored but go heatrans)
maxy1991991 vs Pokesartoolcay
TheShadowClaw vs Prof. Almeida
THIS MACHINE vs Dragonmirror (lol hl)
Huston vs pazza (quit 1v1 again smh)

DenisTheMenace vs ThatCabbageGuy (cabb)
Angels & Airwaves vs crucify
LaBalladeDesCieux vs bigtalk
Simbo vs Aaronboyer (simbo wins 100-0)
 

Cantius

I COULD BE BANNED!
Hax analysis (pqs vs Synon):
G1: 10% chance for Play Rough to miss
G3: Chance for Fishious Rend to never crit in the 8 times it was used: 71.14111534%
4.167% is chance for crit
95.833% is chance not to crit
95.833%^8 is chance never to crit
or about 71.14111534%
Multiplied together, that's 7.114111534%
Guess synon's luck isn't too bad
