Below, you see the bracket and which participants have been assigned to each other. Now it is the participants' task to find each other and duke it out.
Important: Several participants have asked me for their teams to be kept secret, so send your playbacks to me directly when you're done with a battle, as to keep other participants unspoiled about an opponent's team.
I will keep the bracket updated according to progress.

The tournament is being held in Pokémon Showdown, which you can find under this link:
https://play.pokemonshowdown.com/
Showdown makes it easy to build competitive-viable teams and then use them in matches, you just have to sign up and make an account and you're ready to go! The team builder is fairly easy to understand, in case you have trouble figuring it out, feel free to ask in this thread though.

This tournament, we're battling in US/UM Singles OU tier.

Participants can be seen below:
Members that signed up but are unbolded aren't taking part in this tournament.

  • Yoshibrothers
  • dragonfan96
  • Sanct
  • Uzendayo

The way this tournament will be organized is as follows:
  • Participants will go up against each other in Single Elimination brackets
  • Each participant duo will be given up to three days to battle it out with their teams on Showdown
  • Both participants will then send me a playback of their fight.
  • The winner moves on to the next round
  • The participant to win the finale wins recognition and bragging rights as official SMBX Community Pokémon Champion
And with that, the SMBX Community Pokémon League Championship has officially begun.

This sounds like a good idea.



Also, what's Pokemon Showdown anyway?

Oh, I remember using Pokemon Showdown Aaaaaages ago. Although I was never very good at it. I never seem to be able to get the hang of it, I never know what moves or pokemon are best, so I have no clue how I would even make a competitive team. I have some tiny understanding of some of the strategies in battles, but as I said, I'm not very good. I may be that person who always turns up, gets really excited and then loses to everyone because their team is terrible and so is their strategy.

Pokémon Showdown is a program that allows you to manually build Pokémon teams and use them in battles against other Showdown users.

This is why I proposed the idea of themed teams, so people would have to deviate from their usual strategies and come up with new ways to battle and even use Pokémon they wouldn't normally use

You can't directly import teams from the main games but you can easily replicate your in-game team in the team builder. If you can use them depends on if we do a standard tournament or themed teams.

Here's my final thoughts on the SMBX Community Pokémon Showdown Tournament:
  • I will still enter this tourney if we're playing standard rules.
  • And if we do standard rules, I'm going to use only TWO legendaries from the 2 lists just to be a fair sport! ^^

Now to update my list of Pokemon Moon Pokemon I'm gonna use to add another legendary! :)

Not sure you exactly understand how this works yet. You should check out the Pokémon Showdown website and take a look
