    With the introduction to Gen 5, the OU metagame has become fast paced and stall seems to be harder to pull off as the generations progress. In this tournament, you will not have to worry about some of those top tier threats. This means the metagame may lead to the tournament being stallish, however there are ways around. There are still many forgotten threats out there. You could say this is may look similar to the Smogon Ban list in the long term future, who knows =P (I said the long term future at the time, now it only looks like a matter of months).

    I'd prefer if you didn't question the ban list, however if you have a significant issue with the ban list then you may say something about it. Follow the rules carefully, you will need to be 100% sure on what they are.

    Rules
    -Sleep Clause
    -Freeze Clause
    -OHKO Clause
    -Evasion Clause
    -Species Clause
    -Gen 5 Wifi Battle
    -Wifi Battle Clause
    -Save the logs just in case. If your opponent bypasses the rules, send the log to me via PM and I will DQ them. If your battle is fine, then don't PM me the log

    These are rules which will be added onto the current Wifi Tier rules. For example, the ability moody is already banned, so it doesn't need to be added to the lists below.

    Format
    All matches are best of one until round 4. Round 4 and onwards will be best of 3.

    The Ban list: MUST READ, especially the combinations

    Pokemon
    Garchomp
    Excadrill
    Reuniclus
    Latios
    Blaziken
    Thundurus
    Landorus
    Deoxys (All Forms)[/HIDE]

    Ability/Abilities
    Shadow Tag[/HIDE]

    Items
    Brightpowder
    Lax Incense
    Focus Band
    Quick Claw
    Kings Rock
    Razor Fang
    Scope Lens
    Razor Claw[/HIDE]

    Combinations: You may not have these two combinations on the same team
    Drizzle + Swift Swim
    Drought + Chlorophyll
    Stealth Rock + Spikes (To prevent this metagame from being too stallish) This will be tested in round 1, once your battle is finished, you may comment on this rule.[/HIDE]

    Match Ups
    JRJuggernaut vs Sininchi
    kokoloko vs Ziah
    T-Dogg vs Cubole Leader Gary
    Serpentine vs WeavileWinz

    Nexus vs Luck>Skill
    13kuigl37 vs Jin Of The Gale
    Jenaez vs 11wildy
    Emac vs -BlackFire-
    Hitmonkerny vs Shawn Frost
    Luquincito vs Captain Obvious
    NightShift vs -AlphaAmpharos-
    adom4 vs SuperScizor
    Roy Mustang vs Archerknight
    Pizza vs HeroOfSinnoh

    Okay guys, remember that in round 1, the SR + Spikes rule will be tested (nothing is said about tspikes in the thread, therefore you you can use it with either SR or Spikes. Once your match is finished, you may comment on it if you like/dislike the rule.

    Groshi forgot about SR+spikes being banned, I didn't mind and won. I hope this counts. If not I'm mad.
    EDIT @ Oak EDIT: Oh it was. Didn't know about that one.



    Guess it makes me even stronger.

    Confirming the loss. If it doesn't count just pretend I forfeited. Thanks to Ginku for being so nice <3.

    Oak EDIT: Groshi not only forgot about the Spikes + SR rule, he also forgot that Thundurus was on the banlist.

    Groshi EDIT: Yeah, I suck. :x

    love how nexus predicted kokoloko would beat ziah after koko already won. My predition is Archernight will kick my ass. I still have to make my team, but battling archernight shouldn't be a problem because we usually are on at the same time. I will message him when I am ready.

    I've removed self ko clause and added ohko clause and evasion clause (Ty Deox1). Also:


    This tourament is based on what I think Smogon's metagame will look like (besides sr rule). I can gurantee Thundurus will get banned soon and Reuniclus will in the long term future. And banning Sand Rush + Sand Stream is pointless because Excadrill is gone.

    @Captain Obvious, don't post activity unless you pmed your opponent.

    Yeah, I forgot to mention that I pmed him in my activity post. I did, anyways. But I guess that kinda defeats the purpose of my last post, so, without further ado...
