Please pre-register with me so I know how many cookies to bake. You can pre-register either via PayPal or in person before the event. Pre-registration fee is $5. There are 48 slots available, but they're going fast.
All proceeds to benefit the Battered Women's Network.
There will be prizes for first, second, and third place. (There will be an example prize later in the week!!!! So stay tuned!)
The tournament will consist of 6-8 rounds of matched play (based on available time), followed by a four round playoffs.
Each round will consist of three Ultra League matches, with the winner of each match scoring a point. A match is the 3 vs 3 battle run inside Pokemon Go.
The initial round will be seeded based on order of signing in. Subsequent rounds will match players based on points scored. We will attempt to avoid having two people play each other more than once, but this may happen.
The playoffs will consist of the top eight point scorers, with tie breakers determined by strength of schedule (combined points scored by all of your opponents). Playoffs will be seeded similarly, and will consist of single elminiation best-of-three matches.
After finding your opponent, initiate the first match by via the Battle Code. After the first round, both players should click Rematch. Players should select their pokemon as secretly as possible - trying to peek at your opponent's choices is considered bad manners.
We all know that Niantic has issues. Any player can request one start-over per round due to technical difficulties. However, due to the need to finish rounds on time, additional technical issues will result in match forfiture. Make sure your wireless connections are good, and that you don't have excessive background processes running on your device. Restart your game between rounds if you need to, and remember to bring an extra battery pack.
