Trade and Evolve is a user-created tournament format in which a player will be given a team of random pre-evolved Pokemon to participate with by the host. The player will then battle the opponent’s randomly selected team in the OU tier, and the winner will then trade one of their Pokemon for one of their opponent’s Pokemon. You then have the choice to “evolve” one of your Pokemon. You will continue to do this throughout the tournament, and those are the basic rules. The following Pokemon are banned:
Pokemon that do not evolve or have already evolved
T&Es have to be single elimination, and the number of participants must be a power of 2 between 8 and 32. 8 is recommended for newer hosts or if the the room isn't as active (~250 or less users). 32 is only recommended if there's a lot of activity in the room (~500 or more users) and you're confident that you can host it successfully. Try to only start your tour when you are at 8, 16, or 32 participants.
You can't join your own T&E because there would be no way to prove whether or not you rigged the starters
Do not post your tournament in rooms other than the tournaments room. This can lead to punishment and your tour being cancelled.
