Hi all, and welcome to the FINALS!!! of this year's edition of the UU Invitational! 32 of UU's best players over the generations will be participating in this tournament with a current prize pool of $335 (alongside an Amazon gift card from BigFatMantis)!!! The format for the tour will be double elimination with a best of 3 series. The generations played will be SS, SM, and ORAS, similar to UUPL's Bo3 slot. Other than that, the tour follows all of Smogon's other official tour rulesets, please make sure to post your replays in your win posts etc etc....


Finals:



Highways vs umbry


thanks to Lily for the amazing artwork!!! oh my god youre so good wow.

since this is a double bracket, two series maximum will be played, with highways only needing to win one and umbry needing to win both to win the tournament.

will be lenient on deadline since finals but pls dont take too long. gl guys!!

Highways vs umbry

Risky to predict for the winner's bracket to not take it but two reasons:

1) Both of these players have excelled in gen6 and gen7 in this tournament, frequently relying on those gens to win. So I think gen8 is going to be the deciding one and Umbry has had a better gen8 in the past year than highways IMO

2) Umbry brought rain last round and Highways brought Dhelmisse last round to gen8, and I personally think rain > Dhelm rn - Umbry has more solid builds IMO

Excited - congrats to both for winning this far and their prize money already!
 
Won vs umbry, ggs. I'm very glad that I played you in finals, you are a fantastic player and friend, and I couldn't have wished for a better opponent. I'd like to shoutout Golducks and EQ and Sandacondas for always supporting me, especially avarice and dingbat who fed me teams through the tour, especially the latter rounds. Thanks Bouff for hosting this, it was a fun tour and playing BO3 really revived my passion for ORAS and SM UU, although it kinda made me hate SS a bit more lmao.

Lost in some close games vs a good friend, ggs & congrats to highways. Regardless of the final result I gotta say I'm happy with how the tournament went for me, I wasn't expecting to do anywhere close to how well I did and felt somehow satisfied with my play in most of my games despite pretty much never having played 2 of those tiers before, overall it was a lot of fun.
s/o to Lyss and Pak for the help throughout the tour and to some other friends who offered their help along the way, be it with tests or team advice, thanks a lot. Also thank you to Bouff for hosting n_n.
