    Introduction
    Monotype is a very interesting tier, it forces you to adopt a playstyle that uses one common type to try to take down the other 17. In another vein, the series of Nintendo are in constant competition with each other, whether it be on the field of Smash Bros or in terms of legacy and sales with their own titles. What if we were to take and combine these into one balanced concept though? Using Nintendo's top franchises, competitors will create Tri-Type teams based on the assigned series for that round. Are you ready?

    Format
    This tournament will be run in the ORAS OU tier with Tri-Type rules. Tri-Type works like this: You are given three types to use, and can only use those 3 types. Dual-typings outside of these 3 will be eligible. All three types must be used on a team however. Competitors will be assigned series based on what side of the bracket they fall on for that round, and thus assigned types. There will be 4 assigned per round until the finals: Left top, Left bottom, Right top, Right bottom. Besides that, the usual tour format is used. BO1 until the semis, then BO3 for the semis and finals. If cheating is found, the log of the battle needs to be sent to me.

    Type Assignments (can change/add series if need be)
    All Series: Normal (can be used to fill in slots, does not count towards the trio unless something like Normal/Fire in the case of Mario)
    Mario: Fire, Flying, Ice
    Zelda: Psychic, Fairy, Dark
    Metroid: Steel, Fighting, Dark
    Kid Icarus: Flying, Psychic, Fighting
    Donkey Kong: Ground, Fighting, Grass
    Animal Crossing: Rock, Water, Grass
    Kirby: Rock, Ghost, Fire
    Mother: Psychic, Electric, Ice
    Pokemon: Water, Grass, Flying
    Pikmin: Bug, Poison, Steel
    Fire Emblem: Fire, Electric, Steel
    Golden Sun: Dragon, Ice, Psychic

    Rules
    -ORAS OU (Sleep, Species, Wifi, Self-KO) following Tri-Type rules
    -Best of 1 (semi-finals and finals are BO3)
    -Round 1 lasts two weeks, following rounds last one week
    -Teams must have the three types from their assigned game.

    So wouldn't normal being available to all mean it's 4 type base per team? I could use some clarification with that

    I'm in

    Normal is basically a wild card in case you need to fill any team slots, so it doesn't really count towards the trio, thus the title.

    I went ahead and color-coded the series in the OP. This color-coding will be used in the rounds to make finding your series that round that much easier.
