ZU Best Friends Tournament [Signups]

Approved by Quite Quiet
OP and Idea from Diophantine

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.
  • 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).

To sign up, tag your partner in the thread (only one of the pair needs to) along with a team name. If you do not have a partner but would still like to signup, post "in as a free agent" and I will sort you into a pair. This could be a way to meet a new friend!
