    Okay, but just know that the Wi-Fi checker has been updated in Ultra Sun/Moon.

    Unsure if Pokémon outside of the current GEN' can be used in our tournament format.

    Now I could be mistaken, but it make be a good idea to request some Pokémon caught from S/M/US/UM here :

    http://gbatemp.net/threads/free-pokemon-request-service-xy-oras-sm-usum.487552/

    * more or less you can request the 6- Pokémon you want to use on your team and have them traded to your game *

    @Xosei

    Sure, just follow the instructions in the OP and I will sign you up.

    Also, if you have any question, you can reply here or inbox me.

    I despise flat battles and don't really have a team ready for flat double battles, but I guess count me in... Too lazy to get my FC, so I'll post it later. Can't decide if I should troll a bit (eg: monotype team with really weird sets) during the battles or if this will be a serious battle tournament.

    Are transferred mons from gen 1 and 2 banned btw? Want that to be clear because in VGC they are allowed despite the "if not caught/hatched in S/M/US/UM" line.

    PS: You can try using PGL to make friendly competitions for such things btw.

    Alright, just share your information here before the end of the month and I will sign you up.

    Well this is our first tournament of the year...so think of it more of a trial-base thing.

    It's okay to be competitive and do make sure you learn from the experience.

    Yes, as long as your Pokémon are compatible with the rules you are fine (will be a good idea to test this before the end of the month)

    Also, have not messed around with the PGL too much outside of game sync.

    @Gizametalman

    As long as you follow the rules in the OP, you can make it happen.

    Just share your info here and I will sign you up.

    No no no no no, I'm really bad at competitive play.
    Besides, my console is still in 11.2, so I'm not able to online play.

    My Pokemon will be competitive, just wondering if others will bring serious teams or we are just messing around here:P I could use this opportunity if things aren't that serious to pull off some strategies that would have even someone like Pimpnite laughing at the absurdity!

    What do you mean "learn from the experience"? Learn what exactly?:/

    My FC is 0275-9291-4849 (easy to remember, I know, just too lazy to memorize it)

    Fair enough, but if you change your mind before the end of the month...you are welcome to join us.

    @ThoD

    Cool, definitely use a team you really like.

    Oh and what I meant was you might run into a really neat/interesting team combination during the tournament.

    * might even make you a better trainer in the process *

    @Eix

    Okay, as long as your team passed the online checks they should be fine.

    Do make sure to test your team by battle a random person online with these rules before the end of the month.

    I highly doubt I'll run into anything interesting or unique, as I have at least 5 different variations of sets for every Pokemon in existence (different moves, stats, items, etc.), so I've tried almost every possible combination, with only notable exception being Farfetch'd with Final Gambit and First Impression (too lazy to breed one). Doubt I'll be any better, just in for the fun. Already beating Ubers with stuff like Dedenne and Ponyta, so not exactly much room for improvement if you ask me:P

    Btw, are special move Pokemon allowed? If we allow transfer, then stuff like Cotton Guard Banette from gen 3 can be transferred, so are such things allowed?

    It's all good, that is why we are having this friendly competition.

    More or less to see who can come up with the best team combination.

    But with your level of experience, it sounds like you should have no problems with this tournament structure.

    Hmm...well I would rather everyone use Pokémon caught/hatched on a S/M/US/UM game.

    * just for online compatibility and the like *

    Though, if the team passes the online check...I don't have a problem with it.

    Not talking about hacked mons, just rare events, like Pokemon with moves they normally don't get. For example, a favorite of mine is that Sludge Bomb Zoroark event from ORAS and the aforementioned Cotton Guard Banette (mega, max health, max sp.def. with Toxic, Cotton Guard, Sucker Punch and Drain Punch/Rest). I'll refrain from stall as I hate it myself, but I'll bring some really quirky sets, especially if older Pokemon are allowed:P

    Okay, the brackets are more or less updated.

    I am sure everyone has had time to create a legal team for this tournament.

    Round posting will be posted Wednesday afternoon/evening

    And you are welcome to start battling at that point.

    Reply with the results here or inbox me.

    After everyone has finished their first round match (best two out of three)

    I will post the 2nd, then 3rd, and 4th round pairing.

    If you win your match, you get 1-Victory point

    The top 4 trainers (with the highest number of Victory points)

    Will battle it out in a single-eliminate style tournament to determine the winner of this tournament

    Apologies, but I can't make it, exam season is more hectic than I though (just saw new schedule). Is it too big a problem to leave me out? Will join next time you host a tournament.

    @ThoD

    That is no problem, hope you can join the next one.

    @Eix

    Understandable, I do hope things cool down before the next tournament.

    @compilequietly

    Your information has been updated in the OP.

    * thanks for signing up *

    Hmm...with two entrants having to drop I am think about making this a pure round-robin tournament.

    More or less have everyone battle everyone else in one match (best 2 out of 3)

    And whoever wins the most matches is the champion/winner of this tournament.

    That way, if everyone can agree upon a time...we can wrap up the tournament by the weekend.

    With that said, you all are welcome to reply with feedback.
