Sorry this took so long, been very sick all week.
I'd like to ask some people that played and/or watched the event some directed questions:
1) Did you enjoy the event?
2) Do you have any direct criticism towards the manner the event was hosted? (Method of elimination, organization, updates...
Congratulations to our winner! @thePlinko!
And to our 2nd and 3rd place, respectively: @Ragnarokio and @The Sun Fan!
To all other participants: you all did great and I'm proud of you, keep on practicing and I'm sure you can be the next winner.
Thanks everyone for joining, this event could not...
Damn, I didn't even have the time to update the brackets!
And with this we have our finalists!
With the matches being completed, we're now at the Finals!
The undefeated @thePlinko vs. the reascending @Ragnarokio
As a reminder: Plinko only has to defeat Rag once to become the champion...
I'm sorry for the tournament getting stalled for a while, everyone. Hopefully we can now get it back on its tracks.
Judging from the activity of both players throughout the time they were given, as well as considering the arguments provided in these past couple days, I have come to the...
I'll update the brackets later today so we can proceed with the tournament.
So far I'm leaning towards a victory for Rag due to WO. If anyone disagrees with this decision please reach me through DMs or even in this thread.
@Mikey the Moblin @Ragnarokio
I'm not the former host and I won't be letting a tournament be dragging out for months just to end up solving it on a biased coin flip.
I'd firstly like to ask once again if either if you have reasons to extend this deadline any further. If no good reasons for a...
@Mikey the Moblin @Ragnarokio
Please do your battle today. I'll try notifying the other when I see either of you online today.
If either of you need a couple more days please let me know, otherwise I don't plan on keep stalling the tournament waiting for this match.
That concludes the Round 2 matches! Updated brackets!
Deadline will be extended until April 9th so everyone has at least a week to do their battles.

I'm having a bit of a hard time updating Challonge on mobile, but some of the next round's matches can be done in advance in the meanwhile!
@thePlinko vs. @Pen
@The Dashing Darknut vs. @Ragnarokio
No rush to complete them yet, but if you don't want to have to wait for the other contestants...
Previous tournaments used to be one and done, so I'm planning on keeping it up. Pretty simple and straightforward.
Since we have a Losers bracket there'll be other opportunities for players to comeback. The only official match that can potentially have an instant rematch is the Grand Finals. In...
It has come to my attention that only two people seem to have submitted their teams to Morbid Minish so far?
This is a required step to avoid cheating in the tournament. Please submit them before doing your first tournament matches. Thanks.
Also, before you all start, I want to ask you about a potential change.
Would you prefer the match results to be public or private? In previous tournaments the matches were verified by publicly posting the replay in the thread.
What I want to know is: would you all prefer the replays to be...
As promised, here are the first brackets!
Please try to complete the first round's battles until April 2nd! The sooner we all do this the sooner we can go to the next rounds!
Each battle usually takes less than 10 minutes, and can be played both on mobile and desktop. Just make sure to be...
Aight, I'll give a few more days in case anyone wants to join really badly + so people can finish making and submitting their team to Minish.
Sign-ups end on March 21st, at 23:59:59 UTC. Brackets will be posted on the following day, March 22nd.
If anyone is opposed to these dates please let me...
I'm trying to put out a blog post this week that will serve as an introduction to competitive pokémon!
In the meanwhile I'm always available to try explaining the basics of the game in private. Mikey also seemed to offer some help in teambuilding.
Keep in mind that copying sets that you find in...
Yes, since both Walking Wakes and Iron Leaves are allowed in National Dex OU at the moment.
If the tournament starts while they're still legal, players that had them in their teams will be free to use them throughout the tournament.
If they get banned before we start the tournament some extra...
I think they had a proper discussion about banning it but ended up neglecting updating their lists all over the forum and sites.
I'm finding a lot of other pokémon that aren't in the list, I'll update the OP in a few minutes.
Sorry, but no :(
There are plans for a tournament in Scarlet and Violet in the future, but this one can only be played in Pokémon Showdown.
Pokémon Showdown is what we call a battle simulator. It's a site where players can instantly build their ideal team however they want and fight each other...
A sign-up phase's deadline will be set soon enough depending on my impression on the community interest.
Please use this thread to Signup or ask anything that might be bothering you!
Hope you all have fun!

Hello! I'm ExLight and I'll be your host for this event and hopefully the ones in a near future! They'll undergo some some changes so stay tuned-in!
We intend on discussing the current ideas with the community, so we're able to...
