This is a bad idea because what if I think a team is a meme but you think it's not a meme?

I'm going to go ahead and say you can swap Pokemon between rounds but not in the middle of a set; editing that into the ruleset

Do we need to lay claim to a type or can multiple people have the same typing?

And I assume you can't change types between sets, right?

Is there any basic rule I should know? Other than "Pink Ball is probably winning this", of course

This is exactly as much a problem if you're bracketing people based on meme/nonmeme.

Also, wogurts has to win this, he's my champion.

After worlds I'll start-up a competitive pokemon thread with a bunch of resources and I'll organise some tours or something for everyone.

Monotype is cool, just limit the team to be the same one throughout all three sets in a best of three. Allowing people to change between rounds is absolutely fine. If people want to counter-pick that's their risk to take.
