    Adding a description on how this tournament will be run ^_^"

    On Friday (March 14th, 2013), once entries are closed, I will randomly select entrants and set them as a group.

    I will keep doing so until all entrants have been grouped.

    Next, the members of each group will exchange 3DS-Friend Codes and setup a time to battle.

    You then battle every member in your group "once" and save the results to your battle recorder.

    Once you have completed this step, post your win/loss results of your group in this thread.

    That following Thursday (March 20th, 2013) I will tally-up the entrant's records and select the trainers who will be moving on to the Knockout Stage.

    If all of the groups have submitted their results before the 20th...the Knockout Stage will start up earlier !!

    Registration is now closed !! (Friday March 14th 2014)

    Group Stage Battles are now Closed (March 20th, 2014 - 7:11pm USA, Central Time)

    This Tournament has concluded...thanks to all participants for all of your entertaining battles !!

    * Update *

    Thursday (4/17/14) at 9:00pm USA - Central Time Zone will be the cut-off date for receiving tournaments prizes.

    Ha ha, copy and pasted my old format ^_^"

    This will all take place in March.

    * I have edited the OP *

    As far as the banlist...any pokemon that is legal in "Flat Battles" are acceptable for this tournament.

    Since pokemon bank is out now...I am unsure of the new list of banned pokemon for Double Flat Battles.

    * If anyone has a list, you are welcome to post it here *

    I've been trying to built a good team, testing it out in the battle spot and managed to take down some people using legendaries. This was with single battles though.

    Guess I'll try to make a decent double team. Anyway, count me in.

    Ah, happy to see last year's champion taking to the stage once again !!

    * I may have to bug you to get a few more nugget-bridge members to sign up *

    Xexyz

    Currently unsure what is banned now that pokemon bank is out.

    However, as long as it is legal for "Battle For Two - Double Battle" with "Flat Battle" rules...you are good to go.

    Thanks again to everyone who has been spreading the word on twitter, facebook, etc.

    It is my hope that we will have a nice number of entrants by the 14th ^_^"

    By the time the tournament begins, though I'll be on Alaska Daylight Time, which is GMT -8:00.

    Regarding the banlist, if I recall correctly Flat Battles ban all legendaries with a BST of over 600, which is reasonable, but also all event legendaries. I'm wondering if a case could be made for allowing certain event legendaries, specifically Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Land Forme Shaymin, Manaphy, Victini, Meloetta, and possibly Keldeo, since they're all far from OP. I'm not planning to use any of those at present regardless, but it might behoove us to avoid using the VGC's rather nonsensical restrictions.
    Maybe that's too complicated, though.

    Alright, it is awesome to see that you are able to join our tournament this time !

    DarkStriker

    I do hope so and as long as it passes for legal use in "Battle For Two - Double Battle" with "Flat Battle" rules...you are good to go.

    alderryeguy

    Yeah, since bank has been released I have not had a chance to test all of the available pokemon.

    Is there a updated list available for X/Y ?

    Also...I want to thank everyone who has been working, in the background, advertising this tournament.

    This tournament will start in about a weeks time...so I trust everyone is finalizing their pokemon and items.
