    This is my idea for a new cup. I somewhat got the idea from Little Cup, but here it is:
    Just like OU but with one major exception, only moves with 40 base power or less are allowed! For example, an Infernape with the moves Ember, Mach Punch, Fake Out, and Fire Spin. As with every cup, there need to be some exceptions to balance this out and keep it fun. Obvious bans would be Technician ability, multihit moves, and moves without set base powers that can exceed 40 base power. STAB would still be allowed. Moves that only inflict status would not be allowed, but hax would be allowed.

    I believe that this would also be a good way to give some Pokemon who have not found their niche a chance to shine. :)

    Any thoughts, constructive criticism, or additions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    It is an interesting idea, but I don't really care for it. If your name is PorygonZ or Crawdaunt you are probably a little psyched that your ability isn't mentioned.

    This is just a slower paced, weaker OU. Interesting concept but I think it would be very boring to play.
