(Whats up peeps? The new Bulbagarden has been giving my computer a hard time but finally the long wait is over!)
Unova has been the starting point for many up and coming trainers, as well as a magnet for expert pokemon trainers. But now the time has come for both novices and experts alike to gather in Nimbasa city for a no holds barred tournament for the ages! Participants will be competing for a highly coveted VIP all access sports ticket, which grants the holder free admission to all Nimbasa city sporting events for life! The winners pokemon team also gets to choose 3 bags of rare and delicous imported pokemon snacks!
All pokemon EV's do not apply here
Pokemon levels are 100
Match ups will be decided through random brackets.
Battles will be conducted loosely based on the rules from the handheld games according to Black/ White.
No legendaries allowed.
Moves with countdowns are banned (such as Perish song) Moves involving evasion are banned (weather changing is still allowed)
Battles will be 3 v 3, single eliminations.
The trainer of a defending pokemon decides if an attack hits or not.
Teams are fully healed after every battle.
After the start up thread is posted the tournament can officially begin.
The 1st two trainers at the top of the bracket can then battle as long as they are both present in the stadium.
If 1 trainer fails to show up for their match then they will be disqualified after about 2 real life days.
The one who showed up will then be granted a free win and move on.
If neither trainer manages to appear for their turn, then BOTH are disqualified and eliminated from the tournament. (This would happen after about 3 real life days)
The exception to these time rules is the 1st match of the tournament where the participants will have at least 7 real life days to begin before being disqualified. (you can begin right away if you want though)
After a battle starts there is a fairly generous time limit. If a battle is in progress and 1 or both trainers stop making actions then they can still be given an automatic loss eventually.
Once we reach the bottom of the bracket, the turn order goes back to the top with the winners pairing off down the line.
Side stories are allowed and encouraged but don't forget to head to the stadium if your turn is coming up. (also try not to interfere with any tournament matches)
If you would like to forfeit, PM me and I will have a npc make an announcement. (so we do not have to wait for a disqualification)
If you have read all of these rules, then good luck and have fun!

Why you decided to enter the tournament:
Don't go into a rage if you lose or get disqualified, you will still be able to watch the rest of the match's from the side lines and it may give you the perfect reason to go off on a side story!
