Hey guys! As some of you may already know, I’d always intended for The Battle Blog to host multi-battle tournaments in addition to 6v6 Singles, because I wanted to create a space where people could expect multi-battles to happen regularly since they’re so hard to organize in the PSS (and try to win cool prizes while they’re at it).
So, I want to ask you guys, who would be the participants of next week’s tournament. What do you think? Would you like to keep it 6v6 singles for now, or are you ready for a multi-battle tournament? I set up a poll to receive your input:

Just to get basics out of the way: Multi-battles are essentially doubles battles where two players are working on a team on each side. Each partner selects 3 Pokemon from their team to take into the match. At The Battle Blog, you do NOT need to enter with a partner; everyone will be paired randomly. The winning teammates will both get the 1st place prize, and the second place team members will both get the 2nd place prize. Multi-battles will not use the OU format. Instead, we’d use a format almost identical to VGC-15, but instead of doubles, obvs, it’d be multi-battles.
