I just started watching recently so I'm not sure on the exact tournament format but currently they are currently in the pool rounds. I think it's best of one until the top eight which is best of three. --- No amount of rallying would let me beat raytan7585. Congrats to raytan7585 for winning the CB9 Guru Contest!

Finally, there's a tournament somewhere. I'll watch.
Edit: Got it working. First thing I see is that Mega Kangaskhan isn't banned in the tournament. --- I don't give a FAQ. Applei 3DS: 3737-9612-2086---PM me if you want a free 5IV Goomy Egg~

Oh yeah, I was thinking of going to that. Then I realized I'm terrible at doubles --- Your favorite shiny looks terrible

Would be nice if the stream had sound >< (picture shows up fine though), unless sound is a problem with Twitch TV and Wii-U. I'll leave it running and see if anything changes. --- The official Shiki-Ouji of the Shin Megami Tensei IV board 3DS FC - 2750-1413-5336. Friend Safari: Tyogre/Sawk/Meditite
He says he only has about a week of VGC experience so he's doing the best he can. There actually are better Pokemon commentators at the event but they are currently playing in the tournament. I know Cybertron (VGC2011,2012 US National champion) commentated a battle earlier on. --- No amount of rallying would let me beat raytan7585. Congrats to raytan7585 for winning the CB9 Guru Contest!

Pretty cool so far, commentator ruins it a bit tho especially fueling the fire in the Smogon vs VGC instead of just delivering the info of the matches. --- "You don't need to be a better shot, you just need to shoot more bullets" -Marcus Kincaid. FC 4012 4532 4269
