RBY OU Summer Seasonal #5
Rules and Tournament Format
General Tournament Rules
- This is a standard RBY OU tournament
- This tournament will be Double Elimination
- Rounds will be Best of Three. You may switch teams in between battles of the same set.
- Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown!. If you can't agree on which server to play on, the Smogtours server is the default option. Smogtours will be mandatory starting in Top 16.
- Replays are required for all matches.
- Activity calls will be made by me, potentially with neutral assistance from a RBY Moderator or Tournament Director. Coin flips will be done publicly on PS!
- In the event that something is added to or removed from the RBY OU metagame in the middle of a round, that change will be in effect starting the next round.
- Do not cheat. Cheating will result in a disqualification. Additional punishments may be applied as necessary. Cheating includes, but is not limited to:
- Signing up with more than one account
- Ghosting or being ghosted by another player (e.g. while playing a set, asking for advice about what plays to make)
- Manipulating match outcomes (e.g. throwing a match in exchange for Smogon likes)
- Do not harass or insult your opponents. I reserve the right to disqualify anyone breaking this rule. Additional punishments may be applied as necessary.
