I wanted to let y'all know that my NatDex Doubles
Pokémon tournament has begun, but also that the scheduling thing is going to be considerably looser than I had originally intended, in order to accommodate everyone's different timezones and schedules.
For example, I already won 3 of my 5 matches (with the current bracket of 6 participants
) yesterday, but I'll have to wait until later today or perhaps even several days from now (depending upon everyone's schedules) to have my matches against the other 2 participants.
Since it's a round robin
tournament where everyone has to battle everyone else once, that's basically the only way that it was going to work, and the advantage of this is that it is VERY easy for me to expand the bracket at any point during tournament, and so if anyone here is even remotely interested in participating, it shouldn't be difficult for you to do so.
Also, I've compiled 49 ND DOU rental teams
(40 from NatDex Doubles forum threads on Smogon and 9 of my own) to make it possible for anyone join without having to come up with a team of their own first, in case that's an issue.
(Their Poképastes are all listed in the tournament blog below.)
SDK and SocialCu.be Pokémon Tournament 2023
And I also wrote this blog
to help those unfamiliar with competitive Pokémon battling, Pokémon Showdown
, and/or this particular battle format to be able to prepare for it.
(I'm REALLY hoping to get at least 1 or 2 more people to join, BTW.)
