    For all those who were here last year you probably know what to expect, for those that weren't and for those who want to know what's the same and what's not, here's the rules:

    Standard 6vs6 singles on Pokemon Showdown is the name of the game. A lot of the rules will be the same stuff you're used to, but some things may be a bit different to what you'd expect to see. First of all, the link to Pokemon Showdown:

    http://pokemonshowdown.com/

    Here's the rules:

    Endless Battle Clause: Any moveset on any Pokémon that is capable of intentionally causing an endless battle is banned from competitive play. Thus:
    A Pokémon may not carry Recycle and hold a Leppa Berry in conjunction with Heal Pulse and Milk Drink, Moonlight, Morning Sun, Recover, Roost, Slack Off, Soft-Boiled, or Wish.
    A Pokémon may not hold a Leppa Berry and carry Recycle and Pain Split on its moveset.
    A Pokémon may not hold a Leppa Berry and carry Recycle and Fling on its moveset.

    Evasion Clause: The moves Double Team and Minimize, in addition to the abilities Sand Veil and Snow Cloak, are not permitted in play.

    Moody Clause: Pokémon with the ability Moody are not permitted.

    OHKO Clause: A Pokemon may not have the moves Fissure, Guillotine, Horn Drill, or Sheer Cold in its moveset.

    Sleep Clause: Only one Pokémon may be put to sleep on the opposing team at a time, if not induced by a move such as Rest.

    Species Clause: Players cannot have two Pokémon with the same Pokédex number on the same team.

    Baton Pass Clause: Only one Pokemon per team can have the move Baton Pass.

    Pokémon may be up to level 100.

    Banned Pokémon:

    Arceus
    Darkrai
    Deoxys
    Deoxys-A
    Dialga
    Genesect
    Giratina
    Giratina-O
    Groudon
    Ho-Oh
    Kyogre
    Kyurem-W
    Lugia
    Mewtwo
    Palkia
    Rayquaza
    Reshiram
    Shaymin-S
    Xerneas
    Yveltal
    Zekrom

    Banned Items:

    Gengarite
    Kangaskhanite
    Salamenceite
    Soul Dew

    You have until May 1st 2015 to sign up and prepare. This topic is for signups and queries only - any other posts will be deleted and the poster warned for SPAM. Like last time, the tournament format (swiss, knockouts etc.) will be determined by the number of entrants.

    I believe that is all, so if you wish to compete simply post here saying so and you're in.

    It's pretty simple. First, click this here link:

    http://pokemonshowdown.com/

    ...and follow the instructions. You can make your team on there and battle on the servers. The tournament itself will be taking place on those servers, so it may help to get used to using the program itself if you're not confident with it at first.

    The first round matchups go up on that day and the signups end. You're given 2-3 weeks after that to actually get your first round match done, so you effectively have between May 1st and around May 21st thereabout to actually get your first battle done. Every round after that will provide a similar period of time to get your match done so you are given a choice of multiple days to pick from for each round.

    Speaking of which, the signups are due to end in about one week's time now. Please note: Once this signup period ends, you will not be able to drop out of the tournament. Anyone who does drop out once the matchups start or just fails to complete their matchup without good reason will be barred from all future tournaments.
     
  22. Sounds great, I'm in

    Signups are now over. The first round brackets will be up tomorrow in a separate topic. I will send you all a private message with a link to the new topic once it is up.

    As of now, it is too late to drop out. As stated, anyone who does drop out without good reason or just vanishes off the face of the planet will be barred from future tournaments here.

    We'll still need to save our replays and send them to you like before, right?

    Yup, PM me all the replays and I'll post them in the Battle Videos topic once the tournament is done.

    I will go over the rules for that in the battle thread itself tomorrow for those unfamiliar with them.
