~Credit to Smogon for the original concept~

Hello everyone and welcome to the Serebii Premiership! In this league style tournament, eight teams will participate in head to head matches for seven weeks. Afterwards, the top 4 teams will compete in the Serebii Premiership Play-offs.

I] Format
II] Battle Rules
III] Managers
IV] Auction
V] Schedule
VI] Prizes

I] Format

As the tournament progresses, teams face each other in head to head battles with 6 battlers per side who play. Each team will want between seven and nine players, however they can have six or more than nine. Below is the list of metagames in which each team will be playing:

BW Overused 1:
BW Overused 2:
BW Ubers:
DPP Overused:
DPP Underused:
DPP Ubers:

The managers of each team will PM either host (myself (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?u=108033) or Giggity... (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?u=161195)) the team they are playing with each week. If a player is inactive during the week, a substitution can be made for that player.

During the league stages, a win will earn the team three points, a draw will give the team one point, and a loss gives the team nothing. In the case of a tie at the end of the league stage, the Win/Loss Difference of each team will be used in order to determine which team goes through to the play-offs. In the case of a tie in the semis or finals, each team will select one member from their respective to play a tiebreaker in BW Overused.

The standings will be updated each and every week visible to teams and spectators.

II] Battle Rules

- All battles are to played on the battle simulator Pokémon Online.
- Standard Rules (http://serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=290790): note that the Ubers list in the Rules thread linked only applies to DPP Overused.
- Arceus is allowed with a limit to 100 EVs per stat (DPP Ubers only)
- Here is a list of banned Pokémon and abilities for BW Overused:





In addition to these bans, the abilities Drizzle and Swift Swim are not allowed on the same team.

Finally, for BW Overused and BW Ubers, abilities that have not been released in the Dream World are banned. Here (http://www.serebii.net/blackwhite/dreamworldareas.shtml) is a list of eligible Dream World Pokémon and abilities.

III] Managers

The managers will be the most important part of a team. They decide who plays what metagame and when, and deal with the finance (explained later on). If you want to be a manager, please PM myself or Giggity... with the following form:

Activity on the SPPf:
Team Name:
Team Banner Details (mascot, background, text etc.):
Why I should be a Manager:

A Team Name may not have anything profane/racist etc. in them, we want to keep them appropriate. In addition, the mascot of a team must be a Pokémon. Finally, when a manager has been approved, it is advised for them to make a chatroom for their team.

Please note that a manager cannot play in the league stages for a team, so if you want to battle, do NOT apply to be a manager. Applications will be accepted until 96 hours after this post. Afterwards, the managers will select the players they want to battle for the Serebii Championship under the following system:

IV] Auction

A sign-up thread for people who want to play in the league will be opened once all the managers have been selected. The sign-up post will be filled in like this:


The sign-ups will last for a week, and after, the auction will begin.

Each manager will be given $20,000 to use to bid on players they want for their team. The minimum bid for each player is $1,000, but there is no cap; just don't overbid! When you want to raise the bid, you must raise the bid by a minimum of $100.

Players will all go to the highest bidder. During the mid-season, three days will be given for managers to trade each other players in whatever they choose. In addition, a new sign-up thread will be open during those three days for those who either didn't get bid on, or missed the initial sign-up thread.

V] Schedule

Week 1: Manager Sign-Ups and Selection
Week 2: Player Sign-Ups
Week 3: Auction
Week 4-10: League Stages
Week 11-12: Play-offs

VI] Prizes

To be unveiled on a later date.


Just incase you didn't know already, this is NOT a sign-up thread. I hope this will be an overall good experience. Get to PM'ing, Managers!

Approved and stickied since this is an Official tournament*

Also this is not a signup thread , this is more for an information thread for potential managers and for just general info on the tourney. A signup thread will be coming soon . Pm SvN or Giggity if you have any questions/concerns.

Sorry for the double post, but manager sign ups are now CLOSED! There are only six managers, so because of that, I am going to add DPP UU, and as requested by some, ADV OU. This way we will still have the same number of total players than the other system. Here are the managers and their respective teams:

xXKratosAurionXx (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?u=131447) and The Victory Road Knights
Shiny Magmortar (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?u=91539) and The Fabulous Furrets
shadowsfalling19 (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?u=133919) and The Snowpoint City VValreins
Victoria (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?u=170714) and Cerulean's Lovelyys
OMN's_Skynet18 (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?u=108253) and The Whirl Islanders
assassinsceptile (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?u=88538) and The Funky Fromons

Player sign ups will be open soon!

3rd March 2011, 11:16 AM
Good luck to all other managers! Also ADV OU is in now <33
