    We haven’t had a metro tourney in a while (especially not 2v2). Here’s a great chance ;d

    Rules

    1: Advance double battle mode
    2: Sleep Clause on only because smogon forces it on
    3: Freeze Clause OFF (if you get lucky enough for two freezes, so be it ;d)
    4: Self KO Clause on. PP Ups on. Battle Timeout always on.
    5: Item: Leppa Berry on all
    6: Banned: Mewtwo, Mew, Jirachi (because of steel type and good stats), Blissey and Celebi (both because of natural cure since switching is allowed)
    7: Limit: only two of the following: Any ghost, rock, or steel type, and Snorlax
    8: Limited pre-evos are not allowed (so you can’t use Gengar and Haunter or Golem and Graveler together). Other pre-evos are allowed (but why would you use them?)
    9: Obviously this is a metro tourney so you can only use the move metronome.
    10: Switching IS allowed, but remember rule 11.
    11: Struggle cannot be used until Metronome is exhausted on all alive pokemon.
    12: Here’s who else can learn metronome (not counting pre-evos): Clefable, Primeape, Poliwrath, Alakazam, Machamp, Hypno, Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan, Mr. Mime, Jynx, Togetic, Politoed, Aipom, Granbull, Ursaring, Smeargle, Miltank, Ludicolo, Hariyama, Medicham, Plusle, Minun, Volbeat, Illumise, Spinda, and Kecleon
    13: All natures, evs, ivs, etc must be left to neutral (that’s 85 evs each, Hardy nature, 31 all, HP dark, etc). Trait must be left to the default as well.

    I've decided I'm taking 32. Signups closed.

    In.

    One question. Say if one of the opponent's pokemon uses Taunt, does that mean we HAVE to switch? And err...what happens if the opponent uses Imprison?
