    Essentially this is a spin on the idea of "Pick Your Poison" that I like to call the Blind Spartan. In layman's terms, I'm going to be limiting our participants by having them randomly select two numbers. The first number will give them a "General" Pokemon from a pool of pre-selected Pokemon, with a twist, they can't use any of the other Pokemon in the pool. They have to build around this Pokemon and build a team that can work around the other pool Pokemon and any useful Pokemon that can be used in LU. Catchy, no? The second number will be a battling condition, meaning it's a restriction on what they will not be allowed to use in their team building. It could be a limition of moves, hazards, status, or even Pokemon roles fit to a certain T.

    Anyway standard clauses apply:
    - Sleep Clause
    - Species Clause
    - Self KO Clause
    - Team Preview Clause
    - Porygon2 Freeze Clause is optional
    - Best of 1 til the finals.

    Round 2 Generals:
    Celebi, Moltres, Flygon, Cloyster, Goodra, Noivern, Hitmonlee, Mega Camerupt, Smeargle, Mega Glalie.

    Reminder, you get one of the bold Pokemon, but you can't use any of the other bold Pokemon. If you don't get one of the two Mega Pokemon, you can't use their base anyway. Send in your 2 numbers (1-10), (1-6) for a mon and battle condition if you haven't yet. I'll get those going a bit later, dealing with some family-esq things today, so I hope to get them out tonight.

    Match ups:
    Elize Lutus vs. Memories Forgotten
    Scythe.vs Casparov
    snaga vs Mylo Xyloto
    TraceofLife vs gengar17

    Deadline is next Monday, Feb 1st, midnight GMT -6. Good luck, and maybe the drawing power be with you.

    Sent out to the 5 who PM'd me, will need @Scythe. @Memories Forgotten and @Mylo Xyloto to send me their round 2 numbers in forum PM please. So this is just a reminder to do that. Also, be sure to save replays, and check to make sure your team is legal by PM'ing me an importable of your team so I can verify if you are unsure.

    I'm willing to give an extension to @Casparov and @Scythe. to get their match done, but Scythe you need to send me your numbers for this round so you can build a team. The other two, I'm giving activity to those that sent in numbers. And the other match actually got done. Deadline officially is still for midnight my time tonight, but I'm willing to give an extension lasting into next round to get it done by Thursday Feb 4th Scythe and Casparov. I'll post later on the pokemon for round three, and officially give the other wins if nothing else has happened before midnight.

    Note: Round and tiers are locked for now. Meaning that for those that aren't done:

    Gligar
    Rotom-C
    Heliolisk
    Hitmontop
    Metagross

    will still be usable.

    Rotom-H
    Magneton
    Mandibuzz
    Medicham
    Hoopa

    are not usable for this round. Also, I might just up and decide to forbid Hoopa overall because it's gonna be a retarded mon possibly. Just a heads up.

    Sorry for the wait, but weather conditions prevented me from doing this the last few days. Round 2 is now over, round 3 will be up soon. Will @Scythe. @Elize Lutus @gengar17 and @snaga please send me their two numbers for the next round? Same as always, 1-10 for a pokemon, 1-6 for a battle condition.

    General Pokemon you may receive for Round 3, well let's get fun with some of the new stuff: Hoopa, Rotom-H, Celebi, Mega Aggron, Noivern, Slowking, Durant, Chesnaught, Nidoqueen, Fletchinder. Those are the possible mons you can get, hope you all haven't been picking based on the order I list them in here, because I randomize them before I start giving them out, so pick wisely.

    Preliminary results with Hoopa told me that it should relatively be fine in most cases especially in a setting like this where no one might be guaranteed on it. Also, preliminary testing has shown that Hoopa is somewhat difficult to use against some fairly standard stuff.
