Are siblings allowed to compete in the same tournament?

0 votes

Okay so about a month ago I introduced my little brother to Showdown and he loved it and has being playing on it nearly everyday ever since. I told him today that there are annual DB tournaments on Showdown and he said he would like to give it a try and asked if he could play in the same tournament as me.

I told him that he could play but I wasn't sure whether or not he would be allowed to participate in the same tournament as me, as it may seem to others users that a user is getting two shots in a tournament. So that's why I'm asking this question, also if the answer is no I see one way you could settle this, have the two siblings square off in the first round of the tournament.

Yes, as long as you do not in anyway help each other out. Also, if people do help each other out a fair bit, then it could be banned. So, don't help each other and you're fine.
