A creative effort, Klay, even if I'm not entirely sure what it is you're trying to say. It does warm my heart to see the community trying to help new PvPers, though :)

Having said this, I do feel obligated to point out — in a joking, yet truthful and wantonly hypocritical manner:

True Haikus involve
Much more than just writing lines
Of five-seven-five…

Registration ends 21st January, Battles start 24th January.

All Pokémon allowed, must be level 20, no 32 IVs.
Only enter with one account.

5 day rounds, best of 3, Double-elimination bracket.
Avoiding battles will result in an automatic loss. ‘Avoiding’ includes and is not limited to:
- Refusing a battle when you are online and your opponent asks to battle OR not showing up to a pre-arranged battle time.
- Use the "battle" channel in the PWO Discord to contact your opponents and organize a time.
Please record battles that way you have proof if anything goes wrong, keep screenshots of attempts to contact the opponent, don't wait for the last second to contact them.
If both sides attempt to arrange battles but don't manage to have them the wheel will decide fate.
If you disconnect that will count as a loss for that battle.

Getting disqualified will result in forfeit of prizes.
