Marilland's UU Tournament woooo

Hello friends and welcome to a UU tournament! When trying to decide what type of tournament this would be, I went a bit back and forth between many tiers. I wanted the perfect balance of accessibility and being interesting. Tiers like OU, while accessible, are overdone and not as exciting. And tiers like RU, while it was cool because it was new ground for a lot of us, a lot of us got bored because of the nature of the tier. I definitely did. After looking into it a bit, I believe that the UU tier is the perfect middle ground for both of these.

For some elaboration on the format of this tournament: It's going to be a round robin in some fashion. I'll decide on what it'll be based on turnout, and you all can give feedback on if you like it or not. I might divide participants into groups, I might not, we'll see. As with all best round-robin tournaments, it serves as a qualifier for a final bracket stage. How many people are in the final bracket stage will also depend on turnout. As the title says, it's going to be a UU tournament on Pokemon Showdown. The current plan is Best of 3 with the round robin, while the bracket stage is best of 5.

RULES
  1. All Marilland rules apply; duh.
  2. All UU tier rules apply, also duh.
  3. All replays must be posted here after your match when reporting results.
  4. Don't be an idiot and have common courtesy. This means no ghosting, no helping people in game, etc.
That should be it, to sign up just post and say what your Pokemon Showdown username is and I'll add you to the list. Good luck and have fun to all!

Can I still sign up? I don't have too much experience building teams, especially not for UU, but I'd like to get back into competitive, so I figured this would be a good opportunity! My Showdown name is Kalaf.

cool we got 16 that's lit

Alright so the tournament is going to OFFICIALLY start at midnight EST tonight, but you can play your matches today if you want to I guess

So we reached the magic 16 people. What does this mean? This means we get to do my DREAM FORMAT of swiss bracket. Here's an explanation. If you're not into all this explanation stuff, a TL;DR is you play 3 best of 5s against people doing as well as you are, and then this results into your seeding into the final bracket.

1. Each player is sorted into one of 2 groups, all with 8 people.

2. You will play 3 best of 5s within your group. The first one your opponent is randomized. The second bo5 is also random, however your opponent is randomized from your opponents in your group that have the same record as you. So, after the first round, in a group four players will be 1-0 and four will be 0-1. The players who are 1-0 will play other players who are 1-0, and vice versa. Finally, your third best of 5 will once again be against someone you share a record with, where the 2-0 players will play the other 2-0 player, the 0-2 players will play the other 0-2 player, and the 1-1 players will also play within themselves.

3. After everyone has played 3 best of 5s, we move onto the double elimination bracket stage. If you finished with a record of 3-0 or 2-1, you start in upper bracket along with others who did as well as you did. If you went 1-2 or 0-3, you will start out in lower bracket. If you are in lower bracket, you start out with a "loss" in the bracket. So you buy yourself mistake forgiveness in bracket stage by doing well in groups stage. If you don't do well, you lose once and you're out in bracket.

So with that out of the way here are THE POOLS. If you are wondering how pools were determined, I seeded the 8 players that are experienced and have been participating in events here for awhile, and distributed them equally. For the 8 of us who are newer, I randomized which group's remaining spots you went into.

Felly
Gokudera
The Griddler
Moxie
Mudkip_Mischief
Varhii
We Sink
Zed
Beavie Kilza
Bossvelt
Calaf
Flo
Moonwatcher
seaturtle
Typhlosion
Wheegalure
And also... THE MATCHUPS FOR THE FIRST BATTLE PERIOD. I randomized these matchups entirely.
The Griddler vs Moxie
Felly vs Zed
Gokudera vs Varhii
Mudkip_Mischief vs We Sink
------------------------
Flo vs Wheegalure
Calaf vs Typhlosion
Moonwatcher vs seaturtle
Beavie Kilza vs Bossvelt
That should be everything. You all have four days to complete your match from when the tournament starts. So, this gives you until 11:59 PM EST on Friday the 29th. Contact your opponent as soon as possible to work out a time, so I can swap your matchup if your schedules are incompatible. And, please remember these games are BEST OF 5.

That's everything. Good luck, and have fun to everyone! Happy battling!

Hold it, we have to fight each other.... five times potentially for a match up? Isn't that a little much?
