Hi FADEZ,
Thanks a lot for this :D

I only have one or two questions. One regarding the time we need to have (I guess arround 1hour/week right ?). And one regarding the exact date hostilities will happen. As I live in Europe as well as some speedrunners and as my year at university will soon begin I need to know if I'll be able to be a part of the tournament or not.

Finally can we have the full list of items and Pokemon allowed ? (ok, I asked 3 questions)

One hour a week is required for battling as that is the duration of a full battle if it reaches time. I'm not sure the exact date we'll start yet, but probably about a week or so after we have sufficient numbers. The lists of Pokémon Tiers and item usage can be found here http://www.smogon.com/xyhub/tiers however I'm not sure how updated it is and would recommend checking the Smogon Dex.

Thanks again for the list. I missread the first post and thought that you added a restriction on the item/pokemon used in each Smogon Tier (don't know why but whatever).

Still needing a few more entrants to make the league possible. This thread has seen a lot less activity than the last thread, so unless it gains some momentum, this league may struggle to occur.

Okay this is definitely going to happen now. More numbers would still be great but not needed. Gonna decide a submission deadline soon so we can get this underway.

Okay. The final cut off point for submission is the 20th September at 23:59 BST. We'll conduct the draft within a week or two of the submissions closing, and then get the league underway.

Just under 12hrs until cut off ends. I'm considering holding the draft on two different dates, depending on how long it will take. It's been agreed we're going to be doing 'Best of Three' matches because Showdown is fast paced. After the cut off point I'll start updating the original post with draft info and weekly scorelines.

I almost forgot about this. Made sure to join right before the cutoff (I hope).

ENTRIES COMPLETED - ACCEPTING NO MORE ENTRIES PAST THIS POST

We now have a total of 20 teams, which will be split into two divisions of 10. The top two teams from each division of 9 will enter the playoffs (which will include two semi-finals and one final).

So with 20 teams and 3 rounds for each tier, and OU only having 51 Pokemon for example, I assume BL pokes will be drafted along with OU? And if for example, I wanted to draft a UU Pokemon in the first 3 rounds, could I do that or would my picks have to come from OU/BL?

OU = OU and below. So BL/UU/etc are draftable
UU = UU and below. So BL2/RU/etc are draftable

Would it be possible to have this held in a Discord channel rather than on Skype?

(also it's meant to be 'Peal' of Thunder)

Anyone unable to make it forever reason can do two things:
1) Message me your picks on Skype/Discord
2) Leave me a list of your picks from most to least wanted and the Pokémon highest in your list that hasn't been picked yet will be drafted for you.

Cant see anything about it in the rules; are we required to keep the sets on each pokemon throughout the season or are we allowed to swap moves/natures/items as we please?

you can swap moves/natures/items in between opponents. Once you begin a best of three you can not change your mons until the end of it.
