Welcome to the first Gen 9 Random Battles Open! Terastallization is here, and it's time to demonstrate your mastery of unexpected type changes in a single elimination best-of-3 series (best-of-5, quarterfinals onward) tournament!
This tournament is part of our ongoing Rands Slam III circuit. Stay tuned after this tour for news about the next one!
The winner of the Gen 9 Random Battle Open will receive the Room Prize Winner rank in the Random Battles room for a month, be inducted into the Randbats Hall of Fame, and be awarded points for the Rands Slam III. The winner of the Slam Playoffs Round will get a Smogon banner for a full year, along with a month-long Room Prize Winner rank and joinphrase, and a custom avatar!
How does the tour work?
1. Contact your opponent on their Smogon wall and decide on a time to battle.
2. Battle each other in the format “[Gen 9] Random Battle”.
3. The first player to 2 wins (3 wins for quarterfinals onwards) advances to the next round.
1. All scheduling attempts MUST be done publicly on Smogon Walls. No other proof of communication will count for act calls regarding scheduling attempts.
2. You MUST post replays of your wins.
We strongly recommend familiarizing yourself with the Smogon Tournament Rules and General Guidelines, if you haven’t already. If you have further questions, don’t hesitate to contact the tour hosts (Frozoid, pokeblade101, or sharpclaw) on Smogon.
What constitutes ghosting in a Random Battles game can be a particularly fine line, so before commenting in a Rands Slam game, always ask yourself: “Would my comment reveal information that hasn’t already been explicitly revealed in this battle?” Examples of ghosting include suggesting that an unexpectedly fast Pokemon might be holding a Choice Scarf, pointing out that a Zoroark’s disguised level proves it’s a Zoroark, etc.
The deadline for signups is Sunday September 3rd at 11:59PM GMT-4.
Good luck and have fun to everyone taking part!
