Can you channel your little fight and win? With only 2 OU Pokemon allowed, you'll have to go in the likes of UU, RU and even NU. Since these Pokemon are so small, you might have to use NFE Pokemon. No matter the case, best of luck :D

Rules

  • Each Pokemon must be either under 2'4" (.7 m) tall or weigh less than 50 pounds (22.6 kg). (Scraf must be a filthy American for not using the obviously superior meters and kilograms) Height and weight will be determined based on Pokedex entries.
  • NO Ubers Pokemon allowed
  • Only two OU Pokemon allowed
  • Showdown! OU format

For reference, the top 12 most viable Pokemon (according to this list) that fit the requirements are Toxapex, Amoonguss, heat Rotom, Ditto, Reuniclus, Hatterene, Hawlucha, Torkoal, Jirachi, Galarian Weezing, Mew, and wash Rotom. (I might have missed a few)

Signups (now closed)

Please read the tournament guidelines before signing up. Signups should be an answer that includes your Showdown! username, time zone, and available times. It should look something like this:

sumwun
GMT-13
6.00 pm till late on weekdays, waking hours on weekends

Signup deadline is October 2.

I would not call it wrecked.  I should try Hawlucha.
Both of your teams probably could have been 6-0'd by a haze Toxapex and maybe 1 or 2 teammates. Y'all need to learn how to properly check a Toxapex. Also why are you using a Klefki instead of a better Pokemon like Celebi (not that it would have helped in that battle)?
You are definitely right about needing a counter to Haze Toxapex and probably just Toxapex in general if Rotom-H faints.  Maybe Reuniclus?   I choose Klefki because I thought that Prankster Thunder Wave and Spikes could provide valuable assistance.  The main reason I choose Klefki was because I would have 3 Pokémon weak to Ghost.  Maybe I am wrong though.
That’s so depressing I was gonna use exadrill and alolan raichu in electric terrain.

About half of you still haven't battled, so I'm extending the deadline from before 10/17 to before 10/20.
We kind of forgotten that the server is broken so we had to record it down, but it was terribly played by me and Snom won, https://imgur.com/a/dFmeQY6?s=wa
Ok.  Thank you.

First round

(PorygonZangoose vs Staka~) vs ProfDelldell
(melcakes vs ~MegaCharizardY~) vs KirbyKing
Gekky vs Jofly
DarkVoid_Z vs Codeine Kiss
Jhnfui vs Mega-Blade X
t0mbst0n3JACK vs snom

Battles are due before October 10, and extensions will happen only if both players are actively trying to schedule a battle. Please remember to send all replays to me (preferably by commenting on this answer, unless you really want to keep them private).

Edit: Make sure replays are working before battling on the Pokemon DB server. Use a different server if ours is still broken.

You are very wrong to assume that he is the only one who is against this. The problem is that it shouldn't be an option at all. You argue that it is fair since everyone has the option to hide their replays, but I must ask, what would be the point of a tournament where every single replay was hidden? It is a given that nobody would want to share their teams so that they can use the same sets each round, yet thankfully most people are choosing not to hide their replays. It's almost as if part of the point of a tournament is to have your battles available to watch by other people.
The point of a tournament is battling your opponents? There are some Smogon tournaments where everyone hides replays until the last 2 or 3 rounds, and I've never seen anyone complain about that.
Either way, this comment thread is probably not the best place for an argument. You should probably post a separate thread for this after the tournament is over.
Also KRLW890 advances because of a coinflip. https://drive.google.com/file/d/13eevwOZx1YfcvAIhxMtgiQ19r2d-tgjr/view?usp=sharing
i agree, sharing replays should be standard.
"The stuff in this post is not finalized. Please tell me if you think anything should be changed."
from what you said on the guidelines thread
Whatever let's keep it for this tourney, then I guess let players vote about it for the next one. I'll post the replay to all my battles though.

Are you able to battle today?  If not, which is totally fine, what day works for you?
Hey, battles are due today, are you able to battle before 5 today.  If you can't, we'll have to request an extension.
Hey, battles are due today due to the extension.  I am able to battle from now to about 5.  Thanks.

Good luck to all!

Meet me on the CAP Project Room on Showdown!. What time/day do you want to do? If you come on randomly and see me in the CAP room and dm me, it is likely I’ll be responsive and able to fight at that time. :P
When can we meet up?
Not until after Zangoose and I fight... I suppose you could plan to go on as we fight and fight the winner, but I haven’t gotten any response from Zangoose yet. :P

Kay we can fight now. When are you available?
Im only free really late at night on weekdays, but I'll see if I can do it this Friday (UK timing would be Thursday).
I have school Thursday. Want to do Saturday/Sunday(your time)? Saturday I can stay up late and meet you at 11 am (or 9 pm)(your time) if you could, and I could meet you at 10 am Sunday. :P

Also, keep in mind our time zones are reversed, so asking me to meet a noon your time means midnight my time. :P
Okay, anyway I could not make it on Friday either. We could meet up at Saturday (like last week).
I'm giving you 2 an extension. Please finish your battle before 10/13.
in how many hours will you be ready?

really sorry almost forgot about this, my schedule is pretty open 4 seems good for tomorrow?
Yeah, I'll be on the DB server at 4 and we can move over to the main server from there since I believe we still can't save replays on our server
So what happened?
Ugghhhhh my memory has reached new lows, you set the time I'll set an alarm.
No worries, I'll just keep showing up at 4 if that works for you
Yup thanks.
Oof I don't think I'll be on enough this week I'll have to forfeit.
