That's right everybody, we have another tournament lined up! One last competition using the Gen V games before the release of Pokemon X and Y. This tournament will be more closely managed to keep it on track.
The entire competition will be run on this blog, so keep it bookmarked for easy access to check for updates! You have until the next Friday per round to complete your match.

In order to play you need a physical copy of Pokemon Black or White, or their sequels. Emulators cannot be used, and no the tournament will not be done over Pokemon Showdown as while it is fun, free and accessible, it is also just a basic simulator with several game-changing flaws.
Per round, all players will be given a week to complete their assigned match. Extensions will only be given in extraordinary circumstances (such as Umnei moving countries - being tired or playing a different game is not extraordinary).
The winner will be decided in a best of three match.
Matches will use the single, 6 v. 6 battle format.
The level limit will be Lvl. 50. This is to make raising a new team easier for some people. A Pokemon can easily be raised from Lvl. 1 to 50 after only one or two Elite Four challenges using an Exp. Share. Do not rely on the White Tree or Black Tower as this takes much longer.
If you want help raising your Pokemon, message me in chat and I'll see if I can help.
The Wonder Launcher is to be turned off during battles.
It isn't necessary to record your videos. However, if you feel the opponent was using a hacked Pokemon, a different Pokemon than what they registered, or cheated otherwise, save the battle video and show me (Kuro).
If somebody in the battle has used a hacked Pokemon, the video will not be able to upload to the WFC. Keep that in mind.
If you can't organise your match in time, you forfeit the round.
Players must register six Pokemon to use as their main team.
Players have the option to register a further three Pokemon as their reserves. After the first battle, a player may swap Pokemon in their main team for those in their reserves if they feel it necessary.
No duplicate Pokemon. If two Pokemon have the same Pokedex number, they are a duplicate.
No duplicate items are allowed. Get creative with your strategy guys, a team of Choice Scarfs is just annoying like hell.
And that's the end of the final Gen V tournament everyone! While nobody was able to defeat Team Ketchum, it was lots of fun to see everyone participate and the battles were great! See you all in Gen VI for X and Y~!
