Actually, I think it's single-elimination because it's a mini-draft. If it weren't, then it'd defeat the whole point of having a mini-draft in the first place. Speaking of the rules, I've got a list of possible changes that I think could make this whole thing a lot easier to put up once it's over. Houndoom Prepped with Karen vs. Charizard It's Charizard's physical attacks that are going to take the win here. Houndoom has a very low defense, and Charizard equals or exceeds him in every other stat category. Because it's not a wide-open space, Charizard is going to be on the ground from the start, which means sooner or later he's going to get in close with Houndoom. Probably going to be a tough match, but I don't see Charizard losing here. Crobat vs. Raikou Ouch. The territory does favor Crobat, but Raikou's fast enough to keep up with him and take him out. Hitmonlee Prepped with Bruno vs. Mew Double ouch. Machamp vs. Typhlosion A closer match than it first appears, actually. The thing that settles it for me is that Machamp's Pokedex entries really make it out to be a monster. If Typhlosion gets close, he's not going to last long. Could go the other way, though.
