    Sparkbeat FLASH! AAAHHHAAA!

    Hello and welcome to the first Serebii Conquest! This tournament will force you outside your comfort zone and you will have to be able to make the best out of what is given to you to achieve victory. This tournament will be hosted by myself and Kots who will be handling the rng and spreadsheet.

    ~~~

    Overview

    Now this tournament will be quite different from most in more ways than one. The first is that this is an open bracket tournament. This means that you can play whoever you want whenever you want. There will be no bracket, only a chatroom to arrange battles on. However, there are a few restrictions for this to prevent johning and inactivity, but we'll get to that later.

    Next, this tournament will force you to be creative in your teambuilding by only giving you a certain amount of Pokemon that are considered viable in the current OU metagame. When sign-ups are closed, everyone will receive 4 random viable Pokemon. There is a list of possible Pokemon below (See Banned Pokemon spoiler under the section Participants and Pokemon). You may not use any of these Pokemon, except for the ones you receive. If a Pokemon isn't listed below, then you may use it on your team to fill in your remaining slots, ie if you have your 4 Pokemon, but you only wish to use 3 for your battle (Synergy reasons) you use unlisted Pokemon for the remaining 3 slots of your team. Every battle will be 6v6.

    ~~~

    Victory and Defeat

    Since there is no bracket, there will never be someone who "reaches the end." In this tournament, you must be the last man standing to win. To achieve this, you must capture everyone else's Pokemon by defeating them. When you defeat someone, you must select 2 of their Pokemon, and they become yours to use until the same thing happens to you. To lose, you must lose all of your Pokemon. When you are eliminated, you are out permanently. There will be no "giving away Pokemon" if someone drops out.

    ~~~

    Inactivity, Disqualification, and Drop-Outs

    If you wish to drop out of the tournament, post in the thread and send me a VM. You may not under any circumstances give away your Pokemon when you drop out. They will be put in an rng along with every remaining participants name, and that player will receive the Pokemon. The same rule applies for inactivity. For this tournament, you must have at least 1 game every 4 days. If you are unable to do so, send me a PM/VM explaining why, and I will make the final verdict. All decisions regarding inactivity are final. You will be disqualified from the tournament if you are caught using Pokemon on the list that you do not own. You will also be disqualified if you deny challenges while you are in the chatroom. If you do not have time to accept challenges, then simply do not login to the chatroom. The only time you may deny a battle is if it has been less that 24 hours since your last one.

    ~~~

    Rules

    Standard Smogon BW2 OU banlist and battle clauses
    All battles must be completed on Pokemon Showdown! or Pokemon Online
    All matches will be Best of 3
    Once you start a Bo3, finish it. You can teambuild in the period after you challenge someone and before the Bo3 begins, but not after the Bo3 begins.
    Weather Inducers are banned completely as they have been deemed overpowered because of their many normally unviable lower tiered abusers (Politoed, Tyranitar, Ninetales, Hippowdon, Abomasnow)
    All the rules stated in the paragraphs above

    Credits to Anakbae for the fantastic banner, to Jirachiuser1 for helping with the banlist, and to Kots for letting me use his forms and for the basic structure of the post as well as helping with some other things, such as doing the rng's so no one can say its biased (Crys, Ger, Suhnny, etc.) Also, links to the xat and synirc are in my signature. The IRC channel is #serebiiconquest.
