Approved by Earthworm Smogon's First 5th Generation OU Tournament How to Join or Host a Tournament Rules: - Battles of this Tournament are to be played in the Smogon Server on the simulator Pokemon Online. - This is a Best of 1 Single Elimination Tournament. - The Tier list used will be the Smogon one, and the one at the time the round starts. So if the Tiers change on the middle of Round 4, Round 5 will be using the new Tierlist. An extended deadline will be given to test teams and get used to the new metagame if the Tierlist were to change. - Be active, the deadlines will be short and I will rarely give extensions unless theres a very good reason to do so. I will sub out (Round 1) or disqualify (Round 2 and so on) players that arent active. - You cannot join if you have the "I could be banned" status. - You cannot use Pokemon deemed Uber by the start of the round. - You do NOT have to send me logs or teams or anything. - 128 is the number of participants allowed, the first 80 will be picked by First Come First Serve, and the 48 left will be randomized. - IMPORTANT: We are playing STANDARD OU, therefore your team must be valid in the "Standard OU" Tier of Smogon University Server. This means no unreleased Dream World stuff or Soul Dew, as an example. If a Dream World ability or anything is released in the middle of a round, youll be able to use it on the NEXT round. Clauses: - Sleep Clause - Evasion Clause - Species Clause - Timed Battle - Wi-Fi Clause - Uber Pokemon and Abilities are banned. Banned Pokemon and Abilities: (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Banned Pokemon and Abilities: (open) Banned Pokemon and Abilities: (close) Pokemon: Darkrai Deoxys-A Deoxys-N Shaymin-S Arceus Dialga Giratina Giratina-o Groudon Ho-Oh Kyogre Lugia Manaphy Mewtwo Palkia Rayquaza Reshiram Zekrom Abilities: Inconsistent Drizzle + Swift Swim on the same team - If both players agree, they may allow spectators in their match. However, if a player wants spectators disallowed, then the clause "Disallow Spectators" must be used. Example, if I wanted spectators but my opponent says he wants them disallowed, then im screwed and have to use Disallow Spectators. Note: Since Moderators can bypass the Disallow Spectators clause, if you see a Moderator in your match, feel free to ask him/her to leave the battle. Moderators have to comply to the request. And since some people are being stupid about this, what this means is SCOUTING IS NOT ALLOWED. Finals pairings: Earthworm vs Sk tophway vs Earthworm Sk vs tophway Yeah its round robin, if you feel like it post when youre going to play your matches. No deadline as its finals, but please just dont take months to complete them. Good luck.
