    round 1
    As the title implies, this is a generic VGC17 tournament!

    Format
    • Standard VGC17 Ruleset.
    • Best of 3 matches. If you're caught switching your team between games you will of course be disqualified and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. You may change your team between rounds however.
    • Swiss.
    • X-2 cut. I will use resistance to seed the top cut.
    • Week long rounds. Because this is Swiss, I cannot grant any extensions. Get your matches done.
    • You aren't required to save battle videos / replays, but of course if your opponent disputes the result, especially of a game on cart, I have no other way to prove who's lying, so I recommend you do it to be safe.
    Money
    • Free entry.
    • However, I will provide the meager pot bonus of $10 to first place and $5 to second place.
    Platform
    • You can play your games on either cartridge or Showdown.
    • Because some people have circumstances that prevent them playing on cart, but everyone who reads this can play on Showdown, Showdown will be the default platform for this tournament. If either player does not agree to play on cart, you play on Showdown.
    • Timer is not required for games played on Showdown, but timer losses will be enforced.
    • Be warned: if you lose on Showdown, no matter the circumstances, the loss will stand. Losing to Showdown's timer will stand. Losing to a Showdown bug will stand.
    • Some Showdown admin has been changing mechanics based on incorrect rumors. The only one I know of at the moment is Parental Bond mechanics, which of course isn't relevant to VGC, but to protect yourself I recommend playing on cart if you can.
    Activity
    • I plan to eventually remake this guide for trainer tower but as of now follow the scheduling guide I posted on Smogon if you want to avoid an activity loss.
    • The tl;dr is just don't be vague. If you can both play "between 10 and 6" just pick 4 o'clock out of a hat or something. I'd recommend reading the whole thing though.
    Ghosting
    • If you wouldn't say it in battle chat, don't say it at all. It's that simple. Break this rule and you're ghosting.
    • Don't blatantly ghost in battle chat and hope that the way I worded this rule will save you. The safest thing to do is not talk at all if you're not playing, but I love being an annoying spectator in tournament games so I sympathize with you guys. Just stick to discussing things that have already happened. Saying "lol what beats koko lead" during team preview is ghosting; saying it during turn 1 is not.
    • If you come from Smogon, talking about strategy between games of a set isn't considered ghosting. That's because there's no teamlock. Here, there is teamlock, and it is ghosting. From the team preview of game 1 to the last knockout of game 3, it's all ghosting.
    • Obviously it's hard to prove someone was ghosting, but if I do get proof of it, just like the guy who changed his team, you will of course be disqualified and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
    Dropping Out
    • If you wish to drop out of the tournament, post in the thread.
    • I will immediately drop anyone who takes two activity losses in a row, or who shows absolutely no activity in a single round without notifying me beforehand.
    Signups will close at 11:00 PM EST (GMT-5) on Sunday, Feb 12, at which time I'll be posting round 1. Post "in" to join.
