    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.

    MATCHUPS-

    @La.Melle2402 (4) vs @Oh So Penspin (4)

    This match would be a BEST OF 3 Format in which the specific types would be-
    ROUND 1- DRAGON
    ROUND 2- STEEL
    ROUND 3- WATER


    Deadline- No Johning.

    Reward- The Winner will get a Coloured User Title!

    Goodluck to both of you!

    i dont mind. would be cool to get a type both of us didnt use yet. they types i used were water, electric, psychic (twice already) and grass. You used Fire, Fairy, Dragon, Ice and and Dark. So what do you think of poison, bug, ground, or rockl? Or flying type, i think that would be cool. Also, when do you want to play?

    Poison would work, sounds interesting. So would be R1 = Poison, R2 = Steel, R3 = Water then?

    Have to build teams for all and very busy with my thesis, so will probably be next week. I'll pm you later for more concrete plans.

    @Sam Holmes @La.Melle2402 I'm going to John for another week, if you don't mind. My thesis deadline is this Friday and I'm super stressed/busy about making it right now, so I don't have the time or energy to play/build this week. If you think it's too long Sam, feel free to give Melle the win, because I really can't play this week.

    Sure, take your time. There's no meaning in giving a free win in finals. Competitive spirit is what everyone is hoping to watch so.. See you soon.
