Battle round

On the 3rd day of the tournament, 8 Coordinators face each other in knock-out double battles.
Matches last for 5 minutes and the Coordinator with the least points loses if both opponents still have a Pokémon standing. The Coordinator who wins all 3 matches is the winner of the tournament.

Each round is five minutes long, except for Sudden Death, which has no time limit.
