Hey, everyone! It's me, TheGuineaPig45, here with the first round of the Pony Arena Tournament! In this game, two characters will go head-to-head in a poll. Whichever one gets more votes by the end of each round shall move on to the next round, while the one with less is eliminated. There are thirty-two competitors, and of all of them, only one can take the top spot and win!

Welcome, everyone, to the Pony Arena Tournament! After a bunch of set-up, it's finally time for the game to start! It has been decided that there will be eight blog posts, each with four matchups, and each matchup will be available for three days. Remember, it's a tournament, so if someone loses, they are eliminated! Only 16 of our 32 will make it to Round 2! We have the bracket, the characters are ready to go, and all the preparation is done, so without further ado, let's begin! Enjoy!
