Default 3DSF ~ Pokemon XY Tournament

With the release of new EV training and breeding mechanics in X and Y, it seems like many members are experimenting with competitive battling for the first time. This tournament should help introduce people to the metagame and accustom old battlers to the technical changes made this generation.

Battles will be 6v6 singles. General rules include:

Spoiler!

6th gen legendaries and 5th gen Ubers (http://www.smogon.com/bw/tiers/uber) except for Blaziken and Excadrill are not allowed. Everything else goes.

Matches in the first round of the tournament can be done whenever the two participants are ready. I haven't decided on a deadline for the first round but I definitely want to give at least a few weeks for people to make teams. Make sure you save your battles with the VS Recorder. Hopefully we can get someone to capture and upload the best videos to YouTube, and maybe even have the participants add commentary to their video.

Post here if you're interested in joining. Include your time zone so I can match people up more conveniently. The first 16 people to post will be in the tournament for sure, but with enough people we can have 32 participants.

EDIT: The starting date for the tournament is November 15.

EDIT: The tournament will be double elimination, which means you have to lose twice to be eliminated. Here's the first round:

I'm in. I'm working on the Kalos pokedex more than teambuilding right now, but within a few weeks I can probably whip something together.

CST here.

I'd participate, my timezone is EST. I just spent forever after I got to the daycare place trying to get a decent team (37 hours in, still don't have 2nd gym badge haha). It's probably not great, but at least I did all the supertraining while they were level 1. Completely new to pokemon PvP, first game since Crystal and it definitely wasn't as easy to find opponents back then.

I am certain I'll be ready within a few weeks.
