|25th||Ace of Flakes|
Round 1 Pools:
- In Pool A3, MD/VA player Ace of Flakes, a Jigglypuff main, beat The Moon, a Marth player who was a contender for Top 8. However, it should be noted that The Moon was not using Marth but was using Fox instead, though this is mostly since The Moon does not like the Jigglypuff/Marth matchup. (Match Score: 2-0)
- In Pool A4, the Fox player SG, from MD/VA, defeated DJ Nintendo, a top Tristate Fox player. However, it should be noted that DJ Nintendo was using his secondary, Bowser. (Match Score: 2-1)
- In Pool A10, Game & Watch player Qerb defeated top New England Peach player Irish Mafia. (Match Score: 2-1)
- In Pool A12, Son2, the top player and Falco main from Northern New Jersey, defeated top MD/VA Luigi player Vist. (Match Score: 2-1)
- In Pool B10, Donkey Kong player Phish-It defeated Dutch Captain Falcon player Jeapie. (Match Score: 2-0)
Round 2 Pools:
- In Group 2, top Tristate player Codi failed to make it out of pools after losing to Jeapie (2-0) and Bolt (2-1). It should be noted however that Codi almost managed to defeat Lucky, bringing him down to last game, last stock with his Falco.
- In Group 4, Tristate Ice Climbers player Frycook defeated Zhu. (Match Score: 2-0)
- In Group 5, top Peach player DoH failed to make it out of pools after losing to KirbyKaze (2-0) and Velocity (2-0). It should be noted that DoH had, in Round 1 pools, managed to defeat Ralph, who then went on to obtain an impressive 9th place victory in the final bracket.
- In Group 6, there was a three-way tie between Nintendude, Lambchops and Mafia (Nintendude had lost 2-1 in Peach dittos against Mafia, who lost to The Beer Man's Falco, who lost to Nintendude's Ice Climbers). In order to determine the top two seeds, the three players had to play a mini round robin. Nintendude lost again against Mafia in Peach dittos, and The Beer Man lost in the runback against Mafia. Nintendude then went on to eliminate The Beer Man from the tournament.
- In Group 8, Son2 failed to make it out of pools after losing to Ace of Flakes (2-1) and DJ Nintendo (2-0).
