    Hello, and welcome to the Pokemon Online's Pokemon Online Champions League! Here in this thread, we are going to post everything related to POCL administrative matters/problems and so on. Here, the hosters (@Edna and myself) will post:
    • Season Schedule
    • Teams and their Rosters
    • Administrative Decisions
    • Auction Logs

    We have 8 teams this year:

    Winchester Wobbuffets - Managed by @CALLOUS and @JabbaTheGriffin
    Atletico Dratini - Managed by @Pais and @ziloXX
    Arsenal Arcanines - Managed by @Tony and @IAmGingy
    Milan Bisharps - Managed by @Joya and @Raichy
    Ajax Articuno - Managed by @HSOWA and @Jethalal
    Sancerre Shaymins - Managed by @Excal and @Altina
    Geneva Goodras - Managed by @Finchinator and @meeps
    Leicester Lucarios - Managed by @GustavoYAY and @Bloody Rabbit

    These 8 teams will each play other in a Round Robin format, and they will be awarded the following points:
    • Win = 2 points;
    • Tie = 1 point;
    • Loss = 0 points.
    When all seven weeks are finished, the four teams with most points will face each other in semifinals. If there is a need of a tiebreaker, the overall W/L ratio and direct confront shall be used (in this order) - if both are tied, a tiebreaker will be held with the format of SS OU / Tier picked by Team A / Tier picked by Team B.

    ---

    Pokemon Online Champions League will feature ten tiers, and every team will have ten players in its titular team. The tiers/spots are as follows and will all be best of one:
    • SS OU
    • SS UU
    • SS RU
    • SS NU
    • SS LC
    • SM OU
    • ORAS OU
    • BW OU
    • DPP OU
    • ADV OU

    We expect you only to choose a tier if you have experience playing it. If you think you might miss some week(s) of the tournament, please fill up "Inactivity" with details so the managers can be aware of the fact - this is really important!
    After signing up, we encourage you to get in contact with the team's captains via Discord, where they will handle tryouts for their team's spots. Discord activity is really important, and if you're absent from that platform they might not pick you fearing activity concerns! Remember that this is a team tour. Thus you're expected to get in contact with your team on a daily basis.

    ---

    After signups have been completed, there will be an auction hosted in the PO Tournaments Discord server (invite link is above) where the captains will pick their players for the tournament. The eight teams will have 120K to spend on, at very least, twelve players for this tournament, with the minimum bid for a player remaining 3K. Captains are strictly not allowed to play in the tournament itself, but Assistant managers can play if they are bought and assigned after the auction - otherwise, they may not play.

    ---

    In place of the midseason signups/auction, managers will be able to trade players and replace team members (w/ valid reason e.g inactivity) with any undrafted player up until (and inclusive of) Week 4.

    ---

    Each team can retain up to 2 players who played for them last year. Retainees will cost (last year's price + 3k), with a minimum of 10k. Retention rights can be traded.

    Some small reminders:

    1) The captains must send in their Line-ups on time and send them to both @Edna and @Strudels, just in case something bad happens. If no roster has been submitted before the deadline, we will use the previous one.
    2) SAVE YOUR REPLAYS! Link your replays when reporting wins in the weekly POCL threads. Wins without replays will be voided.
    3) Please read the Universal Official Tournament Rules.

    Wobbuffets, Arcanines, Bisharps, Goodras, and Seakings will retain from the same team last year

    Dratinis, Articunos and Shaymins are new this year so they're randomly assigned one of the unused teams from last year to retain from
    Dratinis --> Chatots
    Articunos --> Gogoats
    Shaymins --> Kingdras


    Southampton Seakings requested to change team name to Leicester Lucarios

    Retention rights for Lucarios will remain as last year's Seakings

    In response to manager feedback from last year, this year's midseason will be changed and anyone will be allowed to sign up.

    The Milan Bisharps have retained robjr for 13k. They have 107k left.

    The Sancerre Shaymins have retained blarghlfarghl for 18k. They have 102k left.


    After further discussion with the team managers, we have decided to scrap the midseason this year. In place of the midseason signups/auction, managers will be able to trade players and replace team members (w/ valid reason e.g inactivity) with any undrafted player up until (and inclusive of) Week 4.
