CONGRATULATIONS you're all in the money. You can bring 6 Little Cup Pokemon and still finish with $20 in your pocket which is pretty cool. Obviously from here on it gets more intense, but you should all be proud of how deep you've come, and most importantly you've won a prize and are playing what is effectively a $120 money match, where if you lose you're given $20 and if you win you're also given an additional $20 so all of you are winners already.

As a set has already been played, all of Top 8 will have no team lock, and Team Lock will start from Top 4 onwards. This means that whatever team you use in Top 4 must be used for the finals also, and must be sent to me at any point before your set. You can also update it at any point before you play Top 4. So, Top 8 will operate like Pools in that you can use any team you like with no restrictions. Apologies for the mistake, and if there's anything you need don't hesitate to message me. Bracket is here! Bracket Top 8 Sets SimipourVGC Vs MasterWizard Yale Vs Spurrific Mudcrab Vs JonoTV EmbC Vs Shabarai Good luck to you all!
