    Welcome to Past Gens Balanced Hackmons! I've been waiting literally 6 months to post this tour lmao.

    With the introduction of the Hackmons and Balanced Hackmons tier to PO, we also got the ability to battle with no move, ability, or forme restrictions in older generations of Pokemon. Currently the ladder of All Gens Hackmons has no rules, and I wanted to explore what Balanced Hackmons would look like for all 5 past generations. Hopefully this should be fun.

    Rules for each Gen:

    All games are to be played in the All Gens Hackmons tier in each appropriate gen subcategory as listed above, and this is a Best of 5, you can feel free to choose which order you want to play the tiers.

    Post "in" to sign up, as usual.

    Note: Following a lot of talk about problems with lack of counterplay to Sleep moves in RBY, I've decided to implement a rule just so the tier is less of a problem to play. All Pokemon in RBY will only be allowed access to Sleep moves which they naturally access ingame outside of Hackmons. Thanks to fitzy for this suggestion to the problem.

    For any android users that want to play in this tour. both of there are just versions with the hackmons button always allowed to be pressed.
    I didn't test it in battle and what not though.

    Updated: use this link
    https://github.com/po-devs/android-client/releases/tag/2.6.1

    And when you select "All Gen Hackmons" as the tier it will let you enable hackmon in any gen

    sorta intersted but just wanted to ask about why that RBY ruleset? Does it just agree with other generations without being broken? An alternative ruleset suggested when discussing this with other RBYers is to allow only sleep moves on pokemon which learn it on level up, but then again sleep clause might be preventative enough? And I never heard of species clause being implemented in BH before! Not sure it's nessecary/useful/a good idea.

    Edit: just seen this
    maybe add that to the OP?

    At the same time it's sort of a perverse rule (I know I sorta jsut suggested it but)... maybe you guys should discuss balanced hackmons rulesets in RBY, I think it would be interesting (I know m9m's theorymonned quite a bit about it actually)

    Aurist uses his own clauses and banlists as he is host. I know both RBY and BH, and this is neither both. The title is misleading but
    idc, will be a fun tour with lots of Hyper Offensive. Gl with the Speed Ties.

    Phazing moves are moves like Roar, Whirlwind, Circle Throw, Dragon Tail, etc. Basically, any move that forces you to switch. As you can see, it's only banned in a combo, so if you don't have Prankster+Assist or Copycat+Phazing move, you're fine.
