    I've been told by several people that the name of this tournament was a bit misleading in terms of whether I'd be using Showdown or Wi-Fi for it. Regardless, I did use this name for a specific reason, which I will reveal right now:

    [​IMG]

    If you've been watching or at least paying attention to the World Cup lately then this should suddenly make perfect sense. Every win nets you 3 points, every loss nets you 0 points. You will battle every player once in your group, and the top two players from each group proceed to knockouts. The "Pokemon" section of each table will be for how many Pokemon you finish with after each match - if you get a perfect 6-0 on an opponent, your "Pokemon" score will increase by 6, so if any two players have the same number of points, the person with the higher Pokemon score will be higher on the table. It's basically the same as goal difference. Because of this, you need to make sure you post the full result of your battles; I need to know who won and how many Pokemon the winner had left in order to properly update the tables.

    Here are the knockout rounds:

    QUARTER FINAL

    Kyubeon 1 - 2 Dwayna Dragonfire
    Teapot 0 - 2 Luckii
    MarethyuX12 0 - 2 Ekans
    Alexxander
    2 - 0 Tangrow

    SEMI FINAL

    Luckii 0 - 2 Ekans
    Dwayna Dragonfire 0 - 2 Alexxander

    FINAL

    Ekans 0 - 2 Alexxander

    CHAMPION: ALEXXANDER
    All matches will take place on Pokemon Showdown as you should already know at this stage. The link to Showdown and the rules for this tournament if you wish to go over them again can be found in the signups topic linked below:

    http://pokecharms.com/threads/monotype-cup-2014-signups.10267/

    Note that, as stated in the previous topic, it is too late to drop out now. Anyone dropping out without a very good reason (and I'll decide if your reason is good or not) will be banned from all future tournaments, as I don't want players wasting mine and other competitors' time by dropping out when brackets and matchups are already decided.

    For the first matches, players have until July 12th to get them done. After that, the next matchups will be put on and so forth. Even though you already know you'll be battling everyone, do NOT battle anyone else in your group until that specific matchup goes live. I can't update them that quickly and it'll just cause a mess.

    As per the norm, do not reveal any details about an opponent's team to anyone on this forum. Doing so will get you disqualified, and this includes posting replays publicly in chat and on the forums. If you wish for a replay to be saved, send it to me via private message and I'll put it up at the end of the tournament, as I did for the Singles Showdown. Also, as stated, you cannot change your Pokemon or movesets at this stage - if you are caught doing so, once again you will be disqualified.

    So, have at it, best of luck to everyone.

    P.S. This topic is for battle results only. Please try to keep queries to a minimum here (PM'ing me is the best idea if you have a query or problem) and anything that isn't either a battle result or a query will get you a SPAM warning.

    Just so you all know, the spreadsheet won't be updated in this topic until all the matches in the round are finished, otherwise I'll be copypasting near-constantly. The spreadsheet file will be updated right after every match however.

    Thank you guys for getting your match done so quickly.

    Last chance. Break this rule again and you're disqualified.

    A simple 1-0 would have sufficed.

    That goes for everyone else as well now that I've had to specifically point this rule out.

    I- no I didn't? It was at best 5-0, and even then that's debatable.

    Yep, confirming my loss against Luckii. I sent KoL the replay as well.
     
  17. I beat Mr.RMA 2-0, had terrible hax. Well played on his part.

    Can you modify your teams movesets once you've entered the tournament? Or do you have to keep them the same?

    Well done to you both, and no, you cannot change movesets or team members at this stage.

    @Mr.RMA needs to post the result here too to confirm it.
     
  19. Mr.RMA

    Mr.RMA Magearna before it was cool

    I can confirm that, 2-0.

    It's to be confirmed by both so that there's no mistakes with the score. It just makes things easier.

    Due to problems with lining up a time to battle at the moment, @Shocari and @MarethyuX12 have had their opponents changed. Shocari will now do battle with @Brendan instead this round, and MarethyuX12 will battle @Tangrow now.

    Any issues with this, PM me ASAP.
