Thanks to user @Annoying Orange for this year's banner INFO Welcome to the 4th annual Lower Tiers Triathlon tournament. This tour will serve as a send off to the Generation 6 lower tiers and will determine the Lower Tiers champion! This tournament is brought to you once again by @Xdevo (fuck finch). This Tournament will be a Best Of Three affair, with one match being played in each ORAS UU, ORAS LU, and ORAS NU. In the event of a change of tiering in the middle of a round, the banlist at the start of the round will remain in effect for the entire round. The winner gets a shiny trophy badge to crown your victory, and will receive massive bragging rights as the best of the best in Generation 6 Lower Tiers. CLAUSES AND RULES Spoiler Sleep Clause: Only one Pokémon on the opponents team can be asleep at a time. Note this does not include self induced sleep. Species Clause: You may only have a single Pokémon from each Pokédex number on your team. Wifi Clause: The wifi window must be enabled. Self-KO Clause will be enabled for all battles. Check all clauses before making or accepting any challenges for the tour. If the clause isn't present, and it effects the outcome, the log will need to be sent into the host to decide who is the victor. The tiers are ORAS UU, ORAS LU, and ORAS NU; all tiers can be found on the Forums in this thread Any disconnections during a match will be subject to a replay where possible. If it is felt that a disconnection is used for foul play, logs must be sent to a TD and the host of the tour, and if found to be suspect, people abusing disconnections for the sake of a win will be infracted heavily. All other forum tournament rules apply and anyone found breaking them will be punished. Any other issues are up to the discretion of the Tour Directors and the hosts of the tour. Be aware that if you have a server ban or a forum ban, you are not able to participate, and if you do get banned from either of these places during the tour, you will be immediately disqualified and may face further official penalties. Any person caught cheating will face severe penalties. Round 1 will end October 21st. Spoiler: Round 1 Byes are subject to change if subs are added. I'm going to attempt to make sure that none of the matches are affected by substitution additions, but please check the list more than once this round.
