Minimum spec ply is WPB.

Yes you can use normal tiles. What size are you intending bearing in mind the floor needs to be shaped to allow for drainage?

To form the floor profile use Mr Schluter's materials. google" schluter.com/143.aspx

If its upstairs the floor IS going to move and in due course if the wetroom isn't installed properly you'll be on the receiving end of a rain shower downstairs. I wouldn't trust anything other than the Schluter Kerdi system in this environment because it remains flexible and would walk away from the job if you wanted it any other way. Tanking whilst fine for showers with a tray or overbath will go hard and not be flexible.

BTW WPB ply is perfectly adequate as a substrate. Proper Marine ply is well expensive and OTT for this application.
