The tournament will be run under Smogon OU rules for Singles and Smogon Doubles rules for Doubles.
The tournament will be run in three phases.
THE DRAW (June 3)
Here the pairings will be placed up on the night of June 3. Official rosters for all trainers will not be shown until the end of the first match for everyone in the tournament.
PHASE 1 - PRELIMINARY PHASE (June 5-12)
Players will be placed into groups of 4. Everyone plays everyone in their group once. In the first round, only a number of players will be eliminated until we reach the highest power of 2. (Example: With 48 participants, we will find a way to get to 32 in this round.) Anyone eliminated would move on to a double-elimination consolation tournament. Any ties that need to be broken amongst 3rd or 4th place players in different groups (if the tiebreaker by # of pokemon left standing or # of pokemon lost by are out) will be a head-to-head battle.
PHASE 2 - GROUP PHASE (June 12-26)
From the second round, the top two of each group will advance to the next round. We will continue this with subsequent rounds until there are only 16 participants left. This may mean only one round in this phase, maybe two, maybe three if there are that many. Players eliminated would move on to a double-elimination consolation tournament.
PHASE 3 - KNOCKOUT PHASE (June 26-July 3)
This is a four-round single elimination phase. The round of 16 will be 1 match. The quarterfinals, semifinals, and finals will be best of 3. IF we do get 64 or more players, the round of 16 will also be best of 3. The last person standing becomes the Major League Pokemon Champion.
Everyone participating gets: 6IV battle-ready Scizor w/ Technician Ability to be distributed two nights before the tournament begins.
Winners of consolation tournaments (and a few runner ups) as well as the top 6 of the championship tournament will receive: 6IV battle-ready Shiny Mew.
Top 3 of the championship tournaments will receive: 6IV battle-ready Victini "trophy"
Champion of the tournament will receive, on top of being our first MLPKMN interleague champion, a 6IV Battle-Ready Shiny Cresselia with double-screens.
