    I really want to do this but I know nothing about competitive battling. I'd get creamed in the first round I'm sure. Good luck to all who enter!

    quick question:
    1. what if an "unintentional" disconnection happens?
    2. how do you know/find your opponent?

    ahh.... first things first. i need to be registered

    this is 100% interesting!

    If you believe in Jesus Christ put this in your profile and don't just ignore this, because in the Bible it says, ‘If you deny me, I will deny you in front of my Father in the gates of Heaven.’

    Why does Nintendo insist that Double Battles are the greatest thing since sliced bread and proceed to shove them into every tournament, despite them generally being a minor battle style in-game?

    Nintendo, the vast majority of people play Singles. Cater to your fanbase.

    I actually quite like Double Battling. I'm not experienced in it, but I'm glad they're doing it.

    It allows am more strategic kind of battling, and can help define a trainer much better than a single battle can. If you can win a double battle when you're set for singles, then it just proves you're really good (at reading the smogon sets/strategies). JK btw. haha

    But yeah, I think forcing Double Battles is a really good idea.

    Besides, with Nintendo only using a banlist, if it was only Singles, everyone would just spam SR Excadrill, SS Kingdra, and NP Thunderus.

    It also gives everyone the chance to try something new for once. If everyone was contempt with the same thing, society would never progress. For all we know, Nintendo might incorporate Triples into a Tournament.

    Because they want to make it more challenging.

    Admit it, even the best players get stuck at Tate's and Liza's gym.

    A quick, probably noobish question: is the tournament like a ladder (like PO), a leaderboard (like most football [soccer, whatever] leauges are like) or a knockout?

    How else will we think outside of the box and use different combinations?

    I know singles are fun and easy to make, but crafting a well put together double, triple, or rotation teams is a whole other beast.

    Gah. I wish this was for singles. I have no doubles team and obviously can't train one before tommorow. Mabye i'll modify my singles team and battle just for the lulz.

    I shall be entering this tournament with an in-game team because I lack the facilities to breed and EV train Unova Pokemon, lol. My two Nuzlocke survivors and 4 of my favourite Unova Pokemon.

    Should be interesting to see how far I get with not a lot of strategy.

    It might be fun to see if I can quickly whip up a team, though. Gah. ;-;

    Fun question is, does it actually start right as the day rolls over? if that's the case, signups should start in 2 hours.

    Curious if we have to have our pokes in the box as we sign up, or if we still have a week to modify and adjust. I know it warns you once you've registered your pokes in the box, you can not modify it during the tournament.

    midnight passed there...

    ...no tournament registration open yet...

    While we're waiting to see if we have to wait until midnight or 9 am Seattle time to register, here is a rough idea of what to expect on the competition info option on GBU once registration opens:

    The rough idea

    Now if you excuse me, I have to take a shower for bed... Class tomorrow morning at 11, so might as well get ready for bed, but I'll see if I can get a spot when I get up in the morning...

    Until then, see you tomorrow!

    Hmm so do I need my team ready when I register tomorrow on the GBL website or does registering online secure my spot and I can upload my team anytime before the battles?
