    Default Devolution Tournament - Round 1

    Sign ups for this tournament are now closed.

    Due to the horrible number of 21 participants, round 1 will have 11 byes.
    This results in 5 matches, with 5 people proceeding to round 2, which will be a round of 16.

    The bracket can be found here:
    Devolution Tournament Bracket

    Battle rules will be as follows:
    6v6
    Revolution or B/W Revolution
    Helds On unless agreed by both battlers
    No Weather
    Standard Terrain
    Sleep/Freeze/OHKO/Accuracy/Evasion Clauses

    I hope to get all battles done within a week. If this is not possible, I expect it to be scheduled within the first week, and completed by the end of a second week. No extension will be given past 14 days.

    BONUS STUFF!
    As has been discussed before, I'm also going to run a basic tipping competition. No buy-in is required, just post your predictions for each round in the round thread, and I'll award a prize to whoever makes the most correct predictions at the end of the tournament.

    The will also be a prize for anyone who, during the first round ONLY, correctly predicts which two people will be in the grand final AND the outcome. Once round one is over no more entries for this will be accepted.

    Obviously, you can't be credited for any matches that have already been played, so get your predictions in quick! These prizes will only be small while I trial this, but if it's successful we can continue to run it or expand on it for future tournaments.

    Round 1

    TheProtobabe vs. Elysia I think people underestimate Proto, but I've seen Elysia with her claws out in Banana Slakoth Monsu, and she's scary.
    DarknessRuler vs. Ebail
    BK201 vs. Synthesis
    Elamite vs. Black_Cat320
    Monbrey vs. Dragon Master

    Round 2

    Ash K. vs. GliscorMan If only Baton Pass were banned! (I'll probably use it too; hooray hypocrisy!)
    Felly vs. CommBA
    FAWKES vs. swiftgallade46 anyone's game!!

    Le Grand Finale

    Synthesis vs. CommBA hard to pick between Monbrey and CommBA and even harder to pick between the final two, but ye; dis is what I came up with.

    Elamite vs Black_Cat320
    Monbrey vs Dragon Master

    Round 2:
    Prince Vultan vs Protobabe
    Ash K. vs GliscorMan - This matchup is not ok. There's a chance I could do it though.
    Kantomasta vs Ebail
    Neonsands vs Synthesis - Close battle. Neonsands mis-predicts midgame which costs him in the end.
    Nitro vs Elamite - All comes down to held item choice
    Felly vs CommBA - Felly accidentally wins
    TieSoul vs Monbrey - Sweep at Monbrey's third 'mon.

    Semifinals:

    Finals:
    Synthesis vs Monbrey - Wins own tournament, URPG outraged; much amusement in staff community.

    Devolution Tourney Battle

    6v6
    Revo
    Helds On
    Accuracy, Evasion, Sleep, Freeze, OHKO Clauses On
    Building Terrain
    No Starting Weather

    Ebail (Starly, Staryu, Gastly, Froakie, Abra, Chimchar) vs. Darkness Ruler (Elekid, Venonat, Froakie, Dratini, Chimchar, Squirtle)

    I don't even remember how to log .-. Gastly did a lot of work for Ebail though, and DR had a tough time recovering from Gastly's onslaught. Good game!

    Ebail wins, gets $3000, and advances in the tournament
    DR loses, gets $1500, and can claim his 10k entrance fee
    I ref and get $3000

    (heheh thanks for the rules, Hannah)

    Synthesis (W) and advances: 3K Vs. BK201 (L) and is out; can claim his 10K: 1.5K
    Pretty much a one-sided battle with Gastly sweeping along initially, and Abra cleaning up. Reaper started out well, but then started making mistakes that cost him.
    Syn: [Elekid], Gastly, Abra, [Staryu], [Buneary], Froakie vs. BR: Lileep, Onix, Staryu, Zorua, Meditite, Gligar
    I get 3K
    Total Tourney Wages: 3K
