Oh, hey! What's this I have? Is it pairings? Romantic pairings, Helmy, you ask? HELL NO! They're pairings for who's going to try crushing each other in the first round of the tournament. Irony intended.
Spend the two weeks of your matchup pumping up your EXP so you can try winning the second, EXP-based battle.
Be sure to put your best effort into drawing or writing your tournament entry for the first battle. Remember, the best entry wins that one, so dress to impress! ...sort of. Turn it into the Tournament folder! NEW RULE!
If your opponent doesn't submit an entry, you automatically win the tiebreaker!
