Free Entry Open Teamsheet (teamsheet errors will result in a game loss, all teras must be listed) Bring 6 Pokémon and Choose 4! Best of 3 until Top Cut X-1 BO3 Swiss Single Elimination Bracket 4 Rounds before Top Cut All battles will be completed on the same day.
You must have social media or some way of verifying your identity and contacting you. Respect all judges and players! DM DeagleBeagle or a judge for complaints, not the main tourney channel.
Must be in Discord at all times. Check-in time of 8 minutes - request a judge if you were active but forgot to click the button.
Players must type something in the Limitless battle chat within the 8 minutes of check-in time. If players do not then it is assumed that they were inactive and may lose the match/round. No switching any part of your team whatsoever even if it isn't listed on the OTS.
If you have anything different from your OTS team or from a team you used before in the same tourney, then those things will not be allowed to be used in the tourney. For example, if you have Iron Hands with Tera Fighting on accident and it turns out to be Tera Grass, you are not allowed to Tera that pokemon if you do pick it. If you Tera it, it becomes a game loss.
If there is a delay from getting your team in-game to match the teamsheet you get a game loss and can't use the move or tera or item whatever that is different from the teamsheet for the following matches. Let your opponents know before the game if anything is different.
You can miss only one round and still participate in the tourney. You have to let DeagleBeagle know ahead of time otherwise you may get dropped from the tourney.
You also are allowed to use a Rental Team, but if it doesn't match your teamsheet you may get a first game loss every round and not be able to use whatever is different from your teamsheet.
Battles on Showdown are fine as long as both players agree to it without pressure. If they decline then you either play on the Switch or lose the round. Showdown may be used in case there is an issue with the Switch Online for all players. Replays of Showdown must be saved whenever you battle on there.
No bullying anyone when they make Request for a Judge! I don't want anyone resentful for buckling to someone's complaints about them calling for a Judge when they aren't sure about something or don't think something is fair. Disrespect towards judges is not going to be tolerated and you may get a warning/ban if it is bad enough. If banned contact DeagleBeagle to appeal.
If there is ever an issue or you are not sure about something, contact a judge IMMEDIATELY! Them not having an item or move etc. correct on their teamsheet doesn't necessarily mean they lose. It is up to a judge to decide whether a player loses.
