Grand Tr1v1a tour!

Hello you reading this! My name is UnleashOurPassion, Room Owner of the 1v1 room, and I welcome you to the grand Tr1v1a tournament! A collaboration event between the 1v1 and Trivia rooms on Pokémon Showdown. This document will explain the rules of the tournament, as well as going over the schedule and prizes! Let’s be real, we’re all just here for the prizes If you have any questions after reading this document, feel free to ask in the Trivia or 1v1 room, or to send a message to any staff member in those rooms. We’d be happy to help you out!

Rules

The grand Tr1v1a tournament will consist of 2 phases. The first phase is 8 tournaments held in the Trivia and 1v1 rooms, 4 for each room. Anyone can join these tournaments and try to reach the top! Once you’ve won one of these tournaments, you cannot enter another.

These tournaments are played in the 1v1 format, but with a twist. Upon starting your battle, you will join the battle room like normal, but you don’t yet select a Pokémon. Instead you wait for a staff member from either 1v1 or Trivia to join your battle and ask you and your opponent a question. You and your opponent then have to say the answer to this question as fast as possible. The one who does this the fastest gets to either choose the Pokemon their opponent must use or one Pokemon they cannot use depending on the rules of said tournament. In answering questions, you are not allowed to ask for help, or get/give help from other users in any way. Using google to find the answer is allowed though!

Anyone breaking these rules will be disqualified.

Anyone who wins one of these 8 tournaments moves on to the second phase. The 8 players who won a tournament will face off in a tournament phase hosted on Smogon. They will face off against each other with the same rules, but this time in a best out of 3 battle format, meaning you play 3 battles instead of one, and the first who wins 2 battles wins and advances to the next round! The finals will be a best of 5.
