    This competition will consist of two different parts. The first part is a Round Robin, i.e. Groups of 4/5 players will be created depending on the number of players joining. Players will have to battle all the players of their own group. You'll get 1 point if you win and 0 points if you lose.

    The top two players of each group will qualify into the second round of the competition, which will be the second part of the tour format- a Single Elimination/Knockout Round. Players will be seeded according to their points from round 1. The top 3/4 players from round 2 will head over to round 3 where they will battle it out until a winner is determined.

    Each round will last one week.

    All matches are to be best of one for rounds 1 and 2, while finals are best of three.

    For every group, I will force a different type for each week, e.g. group A gets Fire for week 1 and Grass for week 2, group B gets Water for week 1 and Bug for week 2 and so on. Round 1 will last 3 weeks for a 12 player tour or 4 weeks for a 16 player tour. So a player needs to build 3 to 4 teams for round 1. The winners and runner ups of each group will qualify for the next round.

    Clauses: Sleep, Species, Self-KO and Wi-Fi Battle aka Team Preview.
    PO's Monotype ban list will be used.
    Matches can be played on PO or PS as well, it's up to the players. If players choose to use PS, they must be sure that they are following PO's Monotype rules, as PS's Monotype is different. Bringing a banned Pokemon, Ability, or Item will result in the forfeiture of that match.

    You are encouraged to save replays. If you don't, then make sure you have a way to show me that you were using the forced type that was on the list; this can be done by saving screenshots or by PMing me your teams before the match.

    Group A-


    Forced Type- FLYING

    Hassin627
    vs @Mysterious M

    Elize Lutus vs @Casparov

    Group B-


    Forced Type- WATER

    @Poke Expert vs DoctorS

    DracoNova vs @La.Melle2402

    Group C-


    Forced Type- STEEL

    gengar17 vs @Mikaelson

    @goldenking vs @electraheartcomplex

    Group D-


    Forced Type- DRAGON

    @xburnout vs willdbeast

    Jethalal vs @Oh So Penspin


    Deadline- 7 May

    Goodluck to all of you!

    Confirmed, Mono Drag is horrible. Same for Mono Ghost: it'll just turn into an HO fest.

    50+ SpA Adaptability Dragalge Sludge Wave vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Mega Altaria: 296-352 (101.7 - 120.9%) -- guaranteed OHKO
    +1 252+ Atk Mega Altaria Earthquake vs. 248 HP / 212 Def Dragalge: 280-330 (84 - 99%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Black Sludge recovery

    When you precisely know what type the opponent is using, you just bring the cteam sets.

    Yes I'm new to this :v You still lose (most likely) if rocks are up, or if Dragalge has some prior damage.

    @Draciel and whomsoever this may concern... confirming I won,though such disgust and hate coming out from a loss is not accepted IN ANY DAMN CASE . I won the match probably with 0 hax and then got to hear some really disheartening stuff especially coming from a reputed "Mega-servant-user". Let me bring to your notice that I literally got banned for a day or so for doing this earlier to user Joeypals in nov '14 and I expect some justice to this. I havent reacted but this isnt fair to me either. ..kindly take note


    Im posting screenshots:

    Lost vs Draconova in a gg
    But I have to say that im not a fan of this tourformat. Both players have the same type and its just about who cteams the other better. Which is pretty boring i think. I would have prefered the way Serga did the ubers tour. You get 4 or 5 types and you have to use each one once. That way your opponent doesnt know your type before the battle and he has to build a "normal" team and not a team where you just try to counter your opponent.

    i think that this limits the matchup issue for the most part, since in the end there's no "unwinnable" matchup such as u can see in regular monotype tournaments. There are instances where matchup completely decides the outcome of the game and there's nothing u can do about it assuming the person with the type advantage is at least decent. So in this format, it's about your creativity while knowing that it's not about who gets matchup, but it's about your building skills while keeping in mind what the opponent will use and that he knows that u know.

    edit: requesting an extension cuz my oppo forgot about the tour, we're playing tmrw
