    I don't really see the merit in the format, you will end up with a bunch of LC teams presumably with some shit mon in them which you've been forced to use. Even if the mon aren't bad I can't imagine you're going to be naming Mienfoo or Chinchou any time soon, so they'll be at least uncommon.

    I would honestly be more inclined toward a simple LC tour than this somewhat redundant addition. At least imo

    I posted this idea in the tournaments ideas thread:
    Little Cup Under Used tournament

    The tier exist on PS and I would like to play it here as well

    lc is kinda dead here so the usage stats wont really help in deciding what is UU, we could use the viability rankings instead.
    anything below B- is UU for example.

    Maybe you are looking for something like this?

    You could run a tournament forcing people to run at least 3/4 B (or B-) or lower. Or you could just run LC UU with either Smogon's tier (which is probably closer to balanced) or with a Viability ranking cutoff.

    Actually after discussing with Spaint we decided to used idea of banning 2 pokes each round
    We will force them to use 6 C-D rank mons from viability thread and ban 2 most used

    I would not mind Topdown Knockdown rules
    OR a restriction of B or lower.
    But both I think would be excessive.
    I would prefer the B or lower rule because it lets people not have to build multiple teams.
