WEEK 1 | WEEK 2

The 3rd installment of the biggest Tournament in all of meme-tertainment continues with its aptly named third week!

Format :

Our 8 auspicious teams will compete in a straight round robin tournament, and every team will get to play against every other team. At the end of the round robin, the top four teams will move on to our series semi-finals, where the #1 seed will take on the #4 seed, and #2 will take on the #3 seed, to determine our grand finalists. A win will be worth 2 points, a draw 1, and a loss 0.

Note : Every player on the team must play once in the 7 weeks of round robin.

Sportsmanship: Don't be an ass. Not to your opponents, not to your team, not on PS, not on Smogon, not to me. A bit of friendly banter is ok, but please know where to draw the line. Think before you type, please.

Scheduling and Activity Wins: Contact your opponent as quickly as possible on their Smogon wall, and look out for them on PS. You will have one week from the posting of the week's matches to get it done, and I will not be granting any extensions for any reasons. If your opponent is not responding to your post on their wall, cannot be found on PS, or miss multiple scheduled times, make a detailed activity post in the thread letting me know why you deserve the win. No activity post means no activity call. As long as you have visible attempts at scheduling (such as wall posts), you will be fine.

Disconnections and Timer: A timer loss is a loss. No if's, and's, or but's about it. If your opponent is nice enough to replay that's fine, but they are by no means obligated to.

Ghosting and Identity: Don't take or give battle advice or make moves based solely on the suggestions of others, and don't pretend to be someone else in order to play as them. You will be caught, and you will be disqualified from this season as well as future PS! tournaments (BLT, PSPL, etc.).

Substitutions: Managers are free to substitute out inactive players at any point during the week with any subs they chose during the draft. Be sure to post in the thread when making a substitution.

Third time doing predicts outside + on mobile.. micoy whyyyy zzzzz

Bouncing Bounsweets (6) vs Bannedorus Therians (4)

STAAAB : Don Vascus (40) vs RICEMAN (60): Rice is quite busy recently but I think he should take this easily with his stuff
SnM : WMAR (51) vs Eggs McGee (49): quite close but I think wmar is more used to snm especially recently
Rands : i want a lamp (60) vs Nol (40): so is nol playing all tiers this tour? although this is what she originally signed up for so I think this will be fun to watch
Bo3 OU : Splash (60) vs myjava (40): java is the god of OU but I'm not sure if he's used to no preview yet, meanwhile splash has played this before
CaMonotype : PA (40) vs Mossy Sandwich (60): PA beating kythr was very impressive last week but I think mossy should prep well against him and take this
Doubles NU : Zoaw (40) vs Crunchman (60): Crunchman is more familiar with this tier
National Dex Ubers : Kate (55) vs emillight (45): not too familiar with emillight and not sure if they'll get the right team support
National Dex Same Six : Ninja (40) vs TheFranklin (60): better player in general from what I've seen but can go either way tbh

Lavaridge Lopunnys (3) vs Postwick Pults (5)

STAAAB : PokeArt2004♥ (35) vs 23Gz (65): Pokeart is decent at STAAAB but 23Gz is very good at it :p
SnM : PokaPK (40) vs PociekMociek (60): same as above, sorry poka :(
Rands : FatFighter2 (40) vs javitu (60): It's first time they're playing this tier but I'll give the rands main an edge
Bo3 OU : ez (60) vs Drud (40): Drud got a lucky win vs stareal last week so I'm not sure if he can go thru ez
CaMonotype : Jolly Togekiss ^-^ (40) vs Euphonos (60): Better builder and player, both are 2-0 so it'll be fun to watch
Doubles NU : Surfy (60) vs toxya (40): Surfy (unfortunately) won vs shadow last week, I think he's got the grasp of this tier
National Dex Ubers : Mystras Leoxses (30) vs Frito135 (70): Frito is a good player and idk his opp unless they got a namechange :blobthinking:
National Dex Same Six : TonyFlygon (60) vs pannuracotta (40): If pannu loses he has to like all of n
my posts, on a more serious note tony is a better player overall

Icirrus City Impostors (7) vs Full Moon Frosmoths (1)

STAAAB : Atha (75) vs Elgino10 (25): Atha is easily top 3 staaaber in this pool
SnM : fabwooloo (55) vs Akashi (45): this is interesting as both came off of Ls last week but I think joey will prep better for this
Rands : Pujo (55) vs trace (45): both are very good players but I believe pujo has better knowlwdge of rands overall
Bo3 OU : airfare (60) vs Stareal (40): 2-0 vs 0-2 lol
CaMonotype : temp (60) vs frostyicelad (40): temp sucks but I think he can win this, frosty go focus on sm 2v2 please
Doubles NU : Drivetacos (30) vs Memoric (70): better player in general
National Dex Ubers : Fc (60) vs mammalu (40): should be quite close but I think temp+joey can support this tier better
National Dex Same Six : Leru (100) vs 100%GXE (0): gxe sucks (<3)

formerly p4P1//0n
Do I Really Need to Introduce Myself ? Let's do it just in case ! My name is p4P1//0n, I have won no competitions and lost many battles in almost all existing formats. My goal is to understand all the techniques possible and to be not fucking benched next week, to play even if this dream seems impossible. I am also an artist and by passion for beautiful things I have to change my fucking name already, which is why im posting useless shit so I can reach 100 posts. Replays are in the post micoy made lul u wont find shit here lmao.
 
I don't know any of these tiers btw. Have actually have no idea how to decipher stitch's abbreviations for a few of these. I only know a few of these guys. And I watched like three replays last week.

But my predictions will still be the most accurate on here.

Bouncing Bounsweets (8) vs Bannedorus Therians (12)

STAAAB : Don Vascus vs RICEMAN : Don eats pasta. (He isn't itallian tho mack and tha is a bit stereotypical) Whatever!! Rice is a superior carb to pasta.
SnM : WMAR vs Eggs McGee: From Henry Fielding's The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling:
"I remember my old schoolmaster, who was a prodigious great scholar, used often to say, Polly matete cry town is my daskalon. The English of which, he told us, was, That a child may sometimes teach his grandmother to suck eggs"
Eggs post a video teaching us how to suck eggs when?
Rands : i want a lamp vs Nol: This one is a little pricier than last week's. I love benQ led lamps tho. This one is particularly special. It adjusts itself thanks to built-in smart technology which detects the level of ambient light in the room. The wide LED head also means this lamp offers great coverage, so you can see everything across the desk. It’s highly flexible too, with a ball-joint connecting the head to the stand and two other points which can be adjusted in the stand. My only qualm is that the wide-head can obstruct small desks.
Bo3 OU : Splash vs myjava : You can't code if one splashes acid on your face.
CaMonotype : PA vs Mossy Sandwich: I will never doubt you again PA. Mossy's sandwich gets poisoned.
Doubles NU : Zoaw vs Crunchman : He liked my post last week!! This may be subject to change however. I hope zoaw brings some heat. Really love this tier so far (how tf is suicune in it lol).
National Dex Ubers : Kate vs emillight: The saga of turning everyone emillight faces into a catgirl continues. ez dub.
National Dex Same Six : Ninja vs TheFranklin : Ninja's dont need money. He will take that 100$ bill and slice it. Then do a backflip and blow up your comp and phone. Finally he will win on act.

Lavaridge Lopunnys (16) vs Postwick Pults (11)

STAAAB : PokeArt2004♥ vs 23Gz : This guy is so great he gets 23 gz's everytime he makes a move. Meanwhile pokeart is still living in 2004. Great year for cinema btw.
SnM : PokaPK vs PociekMociek : PO-POPO-POPO-POPO-POMO-POMO-POPK-POPOPO-POPMO-POKEPOPOMON-POPOPOPOPOMOIECK-POPOPOPOPOKAPK-POPOPOPOPOPOPOPOPOPOPOPOPOPOPOPOOP.

That is all.
Rands : FatFighter2 vs javitu : I think ff2 has better teams for this one. idk jaivitu. He has a V in his name tho. V's are only half a W. Cant not spell win with half a W.
Bo3 OU : ez vs Drud (40): drud is gonna drudge this mu bc to the other guy this is ez
CaMonotype : Jolly Togekiss ^-^ vs Euphonos : Is this CameoMonotype? See idk what tf this is. And im not scrolling up. Euphonos wins this bc togekiss's can't be jolly until at least November on account of Christmas and everything.
Doubles NU : Surfy vs toxya : Idk if either of these guys really doubles btw. I think surfy kinda does, so I'm picking toxya.
National Dex Ubers : Mystras Leoxses vs Frito135 : Thats a really cool name. The other guy has numbers in his name. Numbers. He has numbers in his name. Mystras Leoxses is a cool name and Frito135 has numbers in his name. Numbers. He has numbers in his name and he is against a guy with a cool name. Mystras Leoxses is a cool name. It has an X and a y. Frito135 has numbers in his name. Numbers. He has numbers in his name. ez
National Dex Same Six : TonyFlygon vs pannuracotta : I pick Tony bc he is cool. Like cool cool. Not like a fan cools you cool but like ice cold uh fun type of cool.

Icirrus City Impostors (9) vs Full Moon Frosmoths (6)

STAAAB : Atha vs Elgino10 : Atha backwards is Ahta as in Ah-TA you lose. Sorry Elgino better luck next time.
SnM : fabwooloo vs Akashi : Nope. Go Joey.
Rands : Pujo vs trace : Dogs can’t operate MRI machines. But catscan.
Bo3 OU : airfare (vs Stareal : Ive never known star to lose 3 times in a row.
CaMonotype : temp vs frostyicelad : Temp can be short for temperature. A high temperature melts froctyicelads.
Doubles NU : Drivetacos vs Memoric : I still say they are the best in this tier.
National Dex Ubers : Fc vs mammalu : All the signs are telling me to pick fc. I don't trust the signs.
National Dex Same Six : Leru vs 100%GXE : Dunno Leru. Can't look at their profile. Gxe is Gxe tho.

Deerling in the Franxx(0) vs Absolute Absolposters(12)

are you kidding me lol

STAAAB : Ax vs The Number Man: The numbers are in... Deerling's lose
SnM : DerpyBoi vs Icemaster: Iced!!
Rands : Aurodian vs Casual dot exe: Just casually beating this "team."
Bo3 OU : Vaboh vs Gray: BOOO
CaMonotype : cy vs kythr: Gj. Lose deerlings lose.
Doubles NU : Shadowmonstr7 vs queso: Idt cheese has shadows.
National Dex Ubers : BasedWhat? vs WSun1: Bro look at this guy. He is a monster. Picking him every week. ez
National Dex Same Six : gorex vs shiloh: Gj beating boyn's team. Love you guys.

Sorry to anyone who is reading this. I hope you all live wonderful lives have at least two beautiful articulate children. And you go out into the world and live an exciting adventure. Then I hope an anvil falls and ruins your life. Dark but optimistic.

I've been busy this week, AND my basement flooded majorly due to the mass floods happening in Northeast US rn, but luckily I'm safe, and now here they are... Predicts!

Bouncing Bounsweets (3) vs Bannedorus Therians (5)

Gen 8 STABmons + Almost Any Ability : Don Vascus vs RICEMAN - Both are experienced staaab players with a lot of knowledge in the tier. However, while don is decent, riceman is really good. Being the better player in this tier, I think riceman should win this rice and easy.
Gen 8 STABmons + Mix and Mega : WMAR vs Eggs McGee - Happened. The one time I actually predict wmar to win, he loses. (I originally bolded wmar)
Bring 10 Pick 6 Random Battles w/ Dynamax : i want a lamp vs Nol - Ngl, going into this tour after the draft, I never would have expected nol to be a starter every week so far. While I'm sure nol is happy to play the tier she initially signed up for, unfortunately for her, her opponent is a really good rands main. So unless nol secretly has a ton of experience in randbats, I'm gonna go with lamp here.
Best of 3 No Team Preview Gen 6 /7/ 8 OU : Splash vs myjava - Both are great ou mains with plenty of experience and prowess in the tier. Splash may have lost to crying in 2 last week, but I believe splash has played more of gen 6 and 7 than myjava, since Splash is a generally more experienced player overall. While I think this could be close, I think I'll give the slight edge to splash for his known experience.
Update: Woo I was right, splash makes a bigger splash in this tier than the water in my basement.
CaMonotype : PA vs Mossy Sandwich - Poisonous Adhesive, or a Mossy Sandwich? Both common objects with a little something out of the ordinary paired with them. Both have experience in this tier, and even more so the individual aspects of it. Pa is a mono main, so he possesses the mono experience while mossy sandwich has a lot of experience in camomons. Out of these 2 parts of camomono, camo experience is definitely more important here. Because of this, I think mossy should win here, though it could be close. That's not to say I'd prefer a mossy sandwich over poisonous adhesive, I'd never eat a sandwich with moss on it, but glue isn't for eating so poisonous or not, its fine for use.
Gen 8 Doubles NU : Zoaw vs Crunchman - I don't think you'll find a lot of blt rematches in tpp, but this is one. Both are good doubles players as shown in their past performances, although I feel this will have the same result as last time. Zoaw, while not a known doubles main, has definitely had some good performances in the tier, and some wins against really good doubles players. Crunchman however, is an established, well versed doubles main with arguably more experience. Due to having more experience, having brought some nice teams so far, being the better doubles player in general and having won last time, I think Crunchman will take this rematch.
Gen 8 National Dex Ubers w/ No Obtainable Formes : Kate vs emillight - All I know about emillight is that they play oms, while Kate is a great player and veteran in ag and ubers. Emillight def seems to be a decent player, but with all of Kate's knowledge, experience and prowess in this tier, while also being the better player in general, I think Kate should have a dominant win here like last week.
Gen 8 National Dex Same Six : Ninja vs TheFranklin - Both are pretty good players from the tours room community who normally main lower tiers. A fair amount of being good in same six revolves around creativity, and as far as that goes, I can't say for certain who's more creative here. So I think I'll favor arce9 since I believe he's the better builder and better player overall, but I wouldn't be surprised if ninja uses some more creative sets.

Deerling in the Franxx (1) vs Absolute Absolposters (7) (Jesus christ absols...)

Gen 8 STABmons + Almost Any Ability : Ax vs The Number Man - I'd say this is a bit of an hl match. These 2 have both played a lot of omms, and are both great players in these kinds of tiers. However, idt its any mystery who's better here. Sorry ax but tnm is pretty much the omms goat, and he mains this tier, possessing a lot of knowledge and experience in it. Because of that, I think tnm should win here. Besides, RNG stands for Random Number Generator, and this is The Number Man, the numbers shall favor him.
Gen 8 STABmons + Mix and Mega : DerpyBoi vs Icemaster - An interesting match. Derpyboi has shown he's definitely a decent omm player after winning vs Ransei last week, while ice has been known as a good omms player, being particularly good in this tier for quite some time. Ice may have had a bad loss vs wmar last week, but being the more experienced and better player here, I think he should be able to redeem himself here.
Bring 10 Pick 6 Random Battles w/ Dynamax : Aurodian vs Casual dot exe - From what I know of Aurodian, he's been around for a while and he's a decent player overall. On the other hand, we have casual, who is no filthy casual in the field of randbats. Casual hasn't been the mlst active lately, so he may be a bit rusty still, but he's still a great randbats main and player overall. For these reasons I think casual will win.
Best of 3 No Team Preview Gen 6 /7/ 8 OU : Vaboh vs Gray - I've seen gray play a lot over the years, and while he may be primarily an lc main, he is quite a force to be reckoned with in ou, having lots of experience in gens 7 and 8. I haven't seen too much of vaboh, though I do know he is supposedly a solid ou main, so he's finally getting to play the tier he's good at. However, based on what little I have seen from vaboh, and the many battles I've seen from gray, I think gray is the better player here and should take this.
CaMonotype : cy vs kythr - Happened, and kythr, being the absolutely goated absolute absolposter that he is, was who I predicted to win.
Gen 8 Doubles NU : Shadowmonstr7 vs queso - Another blt rematch! Shadow is a well established doubles main in this community, and cheese, while not a doubles main, is a great player overall and can play a multitude of tiers, including doubles. So far, we've mostly seen that doubles experience and prowess is the most key factor to success in this tier, so based on that, and despite losing to a non-doubles main last week, I think shadow should win. However, I wouldn't sleep on cheese here, he actually beat shadow last time they faced in blt.
Gen 8 National Dex Ubers w/ No Obtainable Formes : BasedWhat? vs WSun1 - If you're like me then you're probably looking at basedwhat like "based what? what is he based at?" Apparently he's an ubers main who's relatively new to smogon, and from what I hear, he's ok, but not based. And while he may lack cranium, WSun1 is an experienced ag main and an excellent one at that. So, unless basedwhat has the support of BasedWho?, BasedWhen?, BasedWhy?, BasedHow?, and even BasedBurner, WSun1 is the better player here and should take this.
Gen 8 National Dex Same Six : gorex vs shiloh - Definitely an hl match. A match between 2 highly experienced and great overall players who have only played week 1 so far. I think this should be pretty damn close, but due to known prior experience in this tier, and possibly being a slightly better player(?), I will give a very slight edge to shiloh, but gorex winning here wouldn't surprise me.

Icirrus City Impostors (5) vs Full Moon Frosmoths (3)

Gen 8 STABmons + Almost Any Ability : Atha vs Elgino10 - Until atha has to face tnm, idt he'll have any competition for the majority of this tour. Atha is a goat with staaabing, and against someone who generally doesn't play omms, atha should have no problem dominantly staaabing here too. Elgino might wanna start running before he gets staaabed to death.
Gen 8 STABmons + Mix and Mega : fabwooloo vs Akashi - This is a very interesting match imo. I'd say these 2 players have what the other doesn't have. While joey is very well versed in omms, having been part of the omm community for quite some time now, Jeran is a tours room veteran and an excellent, versatile player who can play just about anything well, even if he got into snm recently. Where joey outclasses jeran in snm expertise, jeran outclasses joey as a player, overall experience and versatility. However, I think tier knowledge may be the most defining factor when it comes to omms, so despite all my praise for jeran, I'm actually favoring joey here.
Bring 10 Pick 6 Random Battles w/ Dynamax : Pujo vs trace - Happened. Jotaro Pujo beat the sh*t out of enemy stand user trace in a close series, which was what I expected.
Best of 3 No Team Preview Gen 6 /7/ 8 OU : airfare vs Stareal - Happened. Star was out for blood and he finally got it. (Initially predicted star)
CaMonotype : temp vs frostyicelad - Temp's been having some pretty unfortunate losses in this tier over the last couple weeks, despite having the experience and generally being a great player. However, I believe this losing streak will be temp-orary, as his opponent this week is a rands main, who as far as I know, has little to no experience in this tier. Due to this, and the fact that I think temp is generally the better player, he should take his first win. We have 2 ice guys in this tour, the ice master, and frosty, who's like the ice novice or something.
Update: TEMP NOOOO
Gen 8 Doubles NU : Drivetacos vs Memoric - For those who don't know this taco driver, he's actually an up and coming doubles player who's in dou seasonal, so he definitely has his share of doubles experience. However, Memoric is quite a bit more experienced with doubles in general, and has had to play this tier for the last 2 weeks and has definitely shown his prowess in it. I believe Memoric is the best player in this tour's dnu pool, and thus should take his 3rd win.
Gen 8 National Dex Ubers w/ No Obtainable Formes : Fc vs mammalu - If this team didn't have memoric, I'm sure mammalu would be slotted in doubles every week, being the doubles main that he is. And now he's playing quite possibly the best player of this pool, apart from maybe Kate. I c no way Fc could lose here. Sorry mamm.
Gen 8 National Dex Same Six : Leru vs 100%GXE - Another major hl match, and coincidentally in same six again. I see this as like one of, if not the closest match this week. Both are extremely good players, one with 2 trophies and the other with a 100% gxe, both with showings of creative building in the past. I feel this is really 50-50... But, just a teeny tiny bit... I feel 2 trophies is better than 100% gxe here. I think Leru might be just a tiny bit better, and a bit more creative than gxe. So, I'll give him the ever so slight edge here, but like I said, really 50-50, wouldn't be surprised if gxe prevails instead.

Huh, this makes me realize that a lot of the best overall players in this tour are being slotted into same six. Ah yes... Same six, the tier that requires the most skill, who would have thought.

Doing these on mobile was absolute pain and I hope to never do it this way again. Anyways, thanks for reading and see you next week. (Or in a few days actually)

(Apologies to anyone I may have possibly offended, please do not take these very seriously.)
