Another dexit generation, another metagame evolution with the addition of Home support... We're hosting a team tournament to give everybody the opportunity to experiment and develop the metagame shift as a result! In order to join, pair up with four friends or be ready to sign up as a free agent to be randomly paired by me.​

Rules of this Tournament:
  • Always play your games in the [Gen 9] Monotype format.
  • You must have exactly 5 total players on your team; the captain doesn’t have to be a player.
  • Like normal team tours, you will play Bo1 versus your opponent, and the team is playing to win the best of five between the players. You do not need to play all at the same time, so schedule individually like usual!
  • You must play on Smogtours or the main PS! server. Replays posted from any other server will be ignored.
  • This tournament is about developing the Monotype metagame. As a result, replays are REQUIRED!
  • Extensions don't exist in team tours, but there are no subs in this tour. So, I will leave the option of extensions open with the caveat that you need to legitimately try to schedule within the week. I reserve the right to deny extensions for poor attempts before the week's deadline or any other reason.
  • The number of teams and groups will be dependent on how many teams sign up.
  • Standard Clause: Sleep Clause Mod, Species Clause, Nickname Clause, OHKO Clause, Evasion Items Clause, Evasion Moves Clause, Endless Battle Clause, HP Percentage Mod, Cancel Mod, Min Source Gen = 9
  • Evasion Abilities Clause: Bans abilities that boost Evasion under certain weather conditions
  • Same Type Clause: Pokémon in a team must share a type
  • Terastal Clause: Prevents Pokémon from Terastallizing
  • This tournament will have two stages: groups and playoffs.
  • For the groups stage, teams will be randomly split into separate groups. The top two teams of each group will advance to the playoffs. Ties will be decided by total wins, so make sure to play every game.
  • For the playoffs, it will be a standard single elimination bracket.
To join:
  • Have the team captain submit a list of five names and your team name.
  • If your desired teammates do not have Smogon accounts, please make sure that they register as soon as possible and tag them appropriately in your signup post.
  • Solo signups: just say in / free agent.
Signup format:
Team name:
Signups will close Sunday June 4th at 10:00 PM EST (GMT-4), but I reserve the right to close them earlier or later based on number of teams/signups to fill a specific number of teams or pools.
