Welcome to the fifth installment of Monotype Winter Premier, everyone's favorite Monotype OM(?) tour. This thread should be used for any discussion related to the tournament. Memes are fine, but use common sense to determine which ones are appropriate.

The format for MWP IV is the following:
  • SV Monotype
  • SV Monotype
  • SV Monotype
  • SV Monotype
  • CAP Monotype
  • LC Monotype
  • National Dex Monotype
  • Monothreat

The managers and teams for this year's MWP are:

Rules

All battles MUST be played either on Pokémon Showdown! or Smogtours (smogtours.psim.us). No exceptions will be granted if another server is used.

Regular Season
:
The regular season will consist of 7 round robin weeks where each team will play the other 7 teams one at a time. There are 8 matches each round, so ties are a possibility. Each week win is 2 points, a tie is 1 point, and a loss is 0 and will be recorded on the spreadsheet.

Playoffs:
The top 4 teams with the best records will move on into the playoff bracket where the #1 seed will play the #4 seed and the #2 will play the #3. The two victors will move on to the finals, with the victor of that week ultimately crowned the first MWP V Champion!

*IMPORTANT*
Playoff requirements will mirror that of MPL IX where your overall score will be comprised of week wins and total wins. Each week win is 2 points, a tie is 1 point, and a loss is 0 and will be recorded on the spreadsheet. Playoffs will come down to week wins, total wins, and then a bo3 tiebreaker.

Tiebreaker:
The tiebreaker will consist of 3 games: 1 SV Mono, the other 2 each being chosen by the participating teams. The lower seed chooses the first format followed by the higher seed. If both teams have the same seed, it'll come down to the head-to-head during the regular season.

Substitutions:
If a captain wishes to substitute a player for an inactive one in the lineup, you must post in the week's thread who is subbing in for who. In addition, please make the post highlight the opponent and their Captain so everyone is aware of the substitution that has occurred. If Links and I feel that you are trying to gain an unfair advantage with your substitute, we hold the right to veto it.

Pre-Week Battling:
Because there is a set schedule generated at the beginning of the season, it is possible to accurately guess what players you will be facing in any given week. However, because the next week’s rosters are not set in stone until the day before the next week, there is no telling what a manager will do with regards to who they slot in one spot… especially if they have more than one player in any given tier. Asking to battle early for future weeks is essentially asking the opposing manager to short themselves options and forces them to make their roster early, perhaps without all of the knowledge they might have gleaned over the course of the week. Due to this, battling early for future weeks is not allowed. Do not ask to battle early for a future week. You will be denied. No exceptions. This is what you have substitutes for.

Trades:
Trades are no longer allowed once Week 1's OP has been posted. Links and I hold the right to veto any trades we do not think are fair, which happens very rarely.

Activity Decisions:
There will be times when a game is not completed. In these instances, Links and I will undertake our duty as hosts to make a thorough investigation. If both sides made no effort or have tried to make every effort but could still not make the match happen, the match will simply result in a no contest. If one side made considerably more of an effort to get the match scheduled and done, that player will be awarded a win. Here are some things you can do to ensure that you do not lose your match via activity: Immediately leave your opponent a VM on their profile after you receive the highlight, do not miss you and your opponent’s schedule time, provide your opponent with concrete times (and your timezone) when you can be reached and reply to your opponent’s VM if they contacted you before you were able to contact them. We highly recommend scheduling via Smogon profile walls only as this is public information and strengthens our ability to make accurate activity calls. Scheduling via Discord or Smogon private messages is not public to the hosts.

Reverse Rulings:
Rulings will not be reversed unless it is immediately appealed and Links and I overlooked a critical piece of evidence. After it is posted in the Administration thread, we reserve the right to reverse the judgment within 12 hours of the decision going public in order to get the best outcome of each situation.

Threat Types:
The threat type will be randomized each week and announced in each week's thread.

Other general Smogon tournament rules apply, any evidence of violating them will result in an immediate ban.

The draft will be occurring the weekend of November 18-19th!

Your favorite core is back. The JOJOZICK Dream Team is back an action. After a devestating robbery in BLT(We drafted shira) we have been training for months to create the managerial core you only hear about in myths. Jojo has already been carried to two rings his year, WHY NOT MAKE IT THREE????

Hello friends!

Please DM me on discord @miifan if you would like to join this year's MWP-winning team the Goldenrod Gengars. I have managed the past two MPL champions and Chait may be washed but he used to be a routine winner as well.

I will not be doing formal tryouts but feel free to send me replays (any tier) / ask for battles (SV and NatDex only). We would love to have you :)
