ZU Best Friends Tournament [Semifinals]

signups | round 1 | round 2 | round 3 | semifinals | finals​

Welcome to the ZU Best Friends Tournament! There are many friendship groups and bonds made through playing Pokémon on Smogon, and I wanted to host a tournament which would celebrate that. This is a tournament where players pair up in teams of two and take each other on in ZU to find out who is the best duo.
  • Each match will be a best of 3 between two pairs. All games are to played in the [Gen 7] ZU format.
    • To make this clear, individual player vs player matchups are NOT BO3. Player A plays player A, player B plays player B, and then a tiebreak is played if needed.
  • If a tiebreaker is needed, the pairs will decide which player is to play the tiebreak game for their team.
  • Replays are mandatory for every battle of the tournament.
  • All tier changes will take effect in the following round of the tournament.
  • In case this was unclear, ghosting is not permitted and games are to be played separately.
Each round will last one week. Here is a link to the rules and guidelines competitors must follow. All games must be played on Pokemon Showdown! (server does not matter). If teams are inactive, I had the right to kick them and replace them with subs.
