    Welcome to the National Championship of Alola League. In this league, 12-16 players will draft Pokemon to complete a team of 11. The draft will be held after signups. After the draft, there will be a split round robin tournament where teams on each side will play each other. At the end of the tournament, the top teams from each side will be in the playoffs. Grouping will be decided based on signup numbers.

    You will know your opponent's 11 Pokemon. This gives all players the opportunity to build a team that works best against their opponent. (ie. counterteam) This also means several Pokemon go up or down in viability in this type of tournament and unnatural movesets and EV spreads are more common.

    The ban list will be the same as the SM OU ban list but will also include Greninja, Mega Metagross, Pheromosa, and Hoopa-U. There may be another change or addition by the time the draft starts.

    If you miss a week or can't show up, you won't be eliminated as this is a round robin tournament. However you will choose to take a loss for that round and give your opponent a win.

    To sign up, comment anything with "in" in your comment
    Signups will end April 3rd if we have 12+ signups by then.

    Quick question: for the draft, if it's at an inconvenient time for our timezone or we're just busy/ whatever can we get a proxy to do it on our behalf?

    Sorry, I was caught up. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to do the draft. I plan on letting a public posting thread and giving someone one day max to post their pick. if they post sooner, the next person can draft as soon as they want. If they miss, maybe I plan on skipping and letting them pick two pokemon next time around OR letting them get their missed pick(s) at the end of the draft. If neither work I'll consider letting a person rng from the top 100ish usage to pick their Pokemon.

    its played on either sim but if one person cant play on ps and only po, the other person will play there too. 3ds would be optional but the replay would have to be uploaded ig.
