This is it, folks. THis is the moment we've been waiting for for so many months now. Here it is; the Leader Tournament!

Rules:
--NO Ubers
--Standard battling rules: OHKO, Item, Species, Sleep, anything I missed (you guys should know them by now)
--If paired with a double battler, come to some sort of agreement on how battles will be conducted.
--Contact each other to establish certain rules (levels, battle styles, etc.)
--No flamming or bawwing if you got paried with someone "good." I've battled you all and every one of you put up an excellent test battle.
--Use your Gym Teams for this tournament. We're here to see whose Gym is strongest.
--Make accomodations to get battles done on time. Get each others info and be courteous.
--Post your final battle results in this thread (win/loss; Pokemon ratio)

Round 1 Matchups:

Ryder vs. Emporer of Ice /vXv\

Mektar vs. Cactuar

Emin Jofit vs. TheKid

Psychic_Espeon_16 vs. MasterChef

EvilPenguin vs. shinashu taji

Round 2 Matchups:

Emin Jofit vs. Mektar

shinashu taji vs. Ryder

MasterChef automatically advances (best record)

FINAL ROUND:

MasterChef vs. shinashu taji vs. Mektar

You will each face each other whenever you get a chance, and the person with the best total record at the end of the matches will be our Champion.

Post to acknowledge you know your battle and get to it. There will be no deadline since you each have to do 2 battles, but you should post your records for all matches in the thread when you're done. Get to it!

What do you suggest I do, seeing how I technically don't have a gym team per se, and that shina's team is a monotype of a type that I can't even use at the moment.

@EvilPenguin: I'm giving double battlers precedence because it's much harder for them to adjust to single battling for a tournament than it is for a single battler to go doubles. Just saying.

Also, I don't know what you should do. My advice is this; Shina has a monotype team, but he does have dual-typed Pokes (which is a given) plus a wildcard. I say, match up some of his dual types/wildcard types and then do what you'd normally do for challengers. I guess I really hadn''t thought about how that would work for you guys...just compromise.

Just so you know, singles teams have just as much problems going to doubles as double have going to singles. Earthquake and Surf, for instance, are two moves that are found on just about every singles team, but because they hurt your teammates as well as the foes, they are very difficult to use in a doubles battle unless you're willing to harm your own pokemon. On the other hand, moves that are common staples on doubles teams, like Protect, Follow Me, Imprison, and Skill Swap, are rarely, if ever, seen on singles teams.

I would suggest that people in this situation do both a singles battle and a doubles battle, and then if there needs to be a tiebreaker they have a simple 6v6 singles where they don't use their gym teams, just to prove who's the better battler. Honestly, its the only way thats fair to both battlers.

Good points, EP. I didn't want to have to do something like that, though. Just for convenience sake. Tell you what; if you and your partner agree to do that, then I've no problem with it.

For the rest of you, work something out with each other. Either do what they're going to do or come to some sort of compromise about the battle. We don't have that many people doing doubles, but if there's a conflict just work it out. I just do one double battle and accept that I'm going to kill a teammate or two with Earthquake or something.

Sorry to hear about that Emporer. Well, Ryder advances then, I guess.

its okay, emperor, tho I kinda wanted to battle x_x maybe I shouldn't just advance, emin, but battle the loser from someone elses match and if they beat me they go on instead of dropping back, and if I win i go on? it'd be a second chance for them and i wouldn't just slide on by which might be considered unfair to some people..

Hey, if you want to do that, I'm okay with it. Do you just want to take on the first person who loses a match? That might take a little while, so just sit tight for now and then challenge that person.

I'll challenge Ryder, But like I said in the other topic I don't want to be champ, nor do I want to pegged as an easy trainer to beat.

Gym teams only, unless we need some sort of a tie breaker based solely on battling ability.

Alrighty then, Shina advances. Anyone else have your matches yet?

EDIT: Also, Shina, what was your best record in those matches?

My best record was a 3-0. Nothing too special. Just curious does that affect anything or was it from curiosity?

Well, the next round's going to have 5 people, so it's going to be 2 matches of 2 with the person with the highest ranking getting a free pass into the final round. Then those three will do the 3 person match thing you told me about a couple of weeks ago to decide a champion.

Your Umbreon was pretty annoying though. You should have given it Suicune's Leftovers instead of a stupid Wiki Berry.

@ Emin: I won 2:0. I didn't need my Torterra.

i won my battle, we battled twice and the first time he took out two or three pokemon, i dont remember the exact number, i forgot to write it down. XP the second time he took out four. battling double was weird, im not used to it but i feel i did okay. we forgot to do a single battle, but i guess its not that big of a deal.

Yeah, that would've won me the game lol. Probably should've went with Brick Break right away on Empoleon, and also used Draco Meteor on Sceptile instead of Iron Head. Ah well, you won fair and square, GG.

EDIT: Also that was incredibly stupid of me to sacrifice Bliss, didn't even need the second stat drop to finish Nape. Bliss would've provided me with one KO off counter, XD.
