  • This is a standard USUM 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 you were in winners', the winner is in losers' and the loser is out.)

  • 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. Doubles Ubers is available as a challenge option if something is banned mid-round.

Hi. As DOU's resident walking spreadsheet, I realigned the seeds to: (a) preserve all played sets, and (b) preserve as many existing pairings as possible—this means that the match played between z0mOG and obii will have its result upheld. The following players are affected by the seed updates:

New matchups: these players have new opponents and will have to re-schedule and play their matches against their new opponents.
qsns vs. voltix31
deoxys speed vs. Dollainthewoods
Givrix vs. Moose And Goose
GustavoYAY vs. Microwavable
Stan Soojung vs. lopd

New bye positions: these players are not hugely affected because they already had R1 byes, but their future matchups are affected because they've been moved around within the bracket.

I can't personally edit either the Challonge or the OP, so those will have to wait until MajorBowman's done with work for the day. Apologies for the disruption caused, especially to the users whose seeds have been affected by the shifts. Please forward any positive feedback to me and any negative feedback to MajorBowman.

Forgot to mention this earlier, but I just wanted to call attention to one of the rules that people seemed to gloss over during the last seasonal:
  • 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.)
I was pretty lenient last time, but this time there will be no warnings. Make sure to save and post your replays!
