    Spring Open [Safari Tag Battle Tournament]:

    Think you have what it takes to be a doubles champion? Then grab a friend and sign up in the thread below!

    The tournament with be a pseudo-Swiss Double Elimination tournament. That means there will be two rounds of pools, and even if you lose, you are not out of the tournament!

    Other rules are as follows:
    - All battles are Tag Team Rotation Battles.
    - Each team may bring two parties of 4 (8 Pokémon total).
    - Species clause is in effect (no team have more than one Pokémon of a given species on either team)
    - No Pokémon above BST 600 are allowed on either team.
    - Each match is a best of 3. That means to win a match, you and your teammate must win 2 games against your opponents.
    - Winner's Finals, Loser's Finals, and Grand Finals will be best of 5.
    - You MAY NOT change your party in between games. Entering multiple games of the same match with different teams is subject to forfeiting that game. You MAY change teams between rounds, however.
    - You cannot enter on more than one team.


    To sign up, copy the following and post in the thread the following information:
    - Safari trainer name:
    - Teammate's Safari trainer name:
    - Team name:


    If you do not already have a teammate, you may post your Safari trainer name along with "in", and a random teammate will be assigned to you.

    Prizes:
    - Participating in the tournament without being disqualified for inactivity will net you a consolation prize of a new item which works like Prize Packs but are more specific to this event. More details will come out for this later.
    - Placing well in the tournament can earn you more prizes. The number of prizes per placing will be determined by the number of teams that enter. At the minimum, 1st place, 2nd place, and 3rd place will all receive prizes.


    Prize Payouts:
    - The prize pool will contain Easter Eggs equal to the number of teams that participate times 2000. So if 8 teams enter, there will be 16,000 Easter Eggs in the prize pool.
    - The team in first place will split 50% of the Easter Eggs in the prize pool (so 4,000 each in the example). Second place will split 25% (2,000 each), third will split 13%, 4th will get 6%, and 5th place will get 3% each (two teams place 5th).
    - Additionally, all teams that participate without DQing earn 500 Easter Eggs each per player.
    - And finally, the GRAND PRIZES are:
    --- 10 LEGENDARY DEW
    --- 10 MEGA STONES
    --- 5 BRIGHT EGGS
    --- 2 PHILOSOPHER'S STONES
    - If you place FIRST, you can choose any of the Grand Prizes. That prize is rewarded to both players, and removed from the list. The team that placed SECOND gets second pick, and both players receive the prize, and it is removed from the list. The team that placed THIRD may pick one of the two remaining prizes. The fourth prize is not rewarded to anyone.

    What happens if the winner's bracket lose to the loser's bracket in the grand final, will there be a bracket reset just like in fighting game tournaments like EVO? If it does, will it be a best of 5? I'm just curious

    Yes, bracket reset will occur. Players will be allowed to change their teams between the two sets of grand finals if it occurs.

    Thanks, prizes look excellent too. I assume each round will cover a weekend at least, as in the other tours?
