Diancie Sixth Gen Sendoff




Welcome, all, to the Sixth Gen Sendoff. This tournament will be the final test (and possibly the first) of what you have accomplished and learned during the course of the 6th generation of Pokemon. If you are questioning the truth behind that statement, I direct you to the fact that, as a (hopefully) 16-32 player tournament with 1 week rounds and a 1 week signup period, This tournament is slated to end on November 17th, 2016. As I am sure many of you are aware, Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon are released on October 18th, so this will truly be the final test of X & Y competitive Pokemon


The Breakdown
This tournament will test your skills in all 5 of the major tiers. OverUsed, UnderUsed, RarelyUsed, NeverUsed and PU (which apparently doesn’t actually stand for anything). You will note that there are 5 tiers listed. This does NOT mean that each round will be a different tier. Rather, in each single round, you could be playing in as many as 3 different tiers in a single match. Here is how it will work. When you sign up, you will select a tier from those listed above. Once the participant list has filled up, the participants will be randomly shuffled to decide a completely randomized seeding. The seeds will be shown on the bracket, as they are an integral part of this tournament.

In each individual match throughout the tournament, the first game in the best of 3 series will be played in the selected tier of the higher seeded player. The second game will be played in the selected tier of the lower seeded player. The third match will be played in a tier that is decided via the chart below:



The tier of the higher seeded player is on the left side, while the tier of the lower seeded player is on the top. By matching the two selections, the tier of the 3rd match in a set can be determined. In order to help ease confusion, I will list what the 3rd game of each match is at the start of every round.

Here is an example:
Quote:
Player 1 (1 seed) - OU
Player 2 (4 seed) - RU
Player 3 (2 seed) - PU
Player 4 (3 seed) - UU

Match 1: Player 1 v Player 2
Tiers: G1 - OU ; G2 - RU ; G3 - NU

Match 2 : Player 3 v Player 4
Tiers: G1 – PU; G2 - UU ; G3 - RU

Finals: Player 1 v Player 3
Tiers: G1 - OU; G2 - PU ; G3 - UU
You will notice that Player 1 played in all 5 tiers in a matter of 2 rounds. This tournament will test your skills in all 5 of the common tiers of XY.

As an additional note, there will be a limit to how many people may sign up for each tier. OU will be allowed 8 players, while UU, RU, NU and PU will be allowed 6 players each. If you apply for a tier and the tier is already full, you will be denied.

Finally, we have a Discord Server set up for this (Huge thanks to Apollo for doing most of the heavy lifting with that). The server can be found here

Rules
All standard Smogon rules and bans apply for each given tier
No flaming, trolling, spamming, etc. Don't post on this thread if you are not in the tournament, and don't post here if you have been eliminated unless you are confirming your loss.
All matches are Best of 3
This tournament will be a single elimination, 32 participant tournament.
All matches must be done via simulators (PS).
The signup stage, as well as each round, will have a maximum time limit of 1 week. The rounds will end early if 32 participants are reached or all the matches in a round are completed.


Signing Up

Chosen Tier:

The signup phase has ended. Let the first round of the Sixth Gen Sendoff begin!

First off, here is the bracket. You will notice that the (completely randomized) seeds are shown, as well as a label for each match. For example, the very first match, labeled match "1", refers to the '16 seed' Shuckle facing off against the '17 seed' Crys. When I list the tiers for the matchups in the next section, I will refer to this match as 'Match 1', rather than naming both participants.

Spoiler: show




Tier Assignments:
Remember, as a 'best of 3' series, the first game in the match will be played in the chosen tier of the higher seed, the second game will be played in the chosen tier of the lower seed, and the third game will be played in a tier chosen by the (almost) Punnet Square that I have created. Don't change the tiers. The point of this tournament is to display your skill in all 5 tiers. You will more than likely play in each tier by the 3rd round, assuming you make it that far. Now then, on to the tier assignments:

Match 1: PU, OU, NU
Match 2: OU, RU, NU
Match 3: NU, OU, UU


Posting Matches
Matches MUST be posted using the following form. The form must be filled out completely and properly. If the form is not filled out properly, the match will not have happened in the eyes of the tournament. The "Tier Played" and "W/L" sections MUST be filled out, or the match will NOT be counted.

Code:
Your UPN Username:
Opponent's UPN Username:
Game 1: (Tier Played ; W/L ; Score)
Game 2: (Tier Played ; W/L ; Score)
Game 3: (Tier Played ; W/L ; Score)
Additional Comments:
Round 1 of this tournament will last just under 1 week. The round will end at 12:01 AM (GMT -4 / Eastern Standard Time) on Thursday, October 20th. There will be no extensions, and no exceptions for any reason. Get the matches done.

Good luck to all participants.
