    BW2 CAP4 - Playtest Tournament
    Hosted by Birkal - Art by Mos-Quitoxe - Huge thanks to the TDs for approving this


    Introduction:

    The CAP 4 Playtest has officially begun! You can find some more information on it here if you're curious about the CAP4 Playtest ladder. To kick it off, we're going to be hosting a playtest tournament over the next few weeks. This is BW2 OU + CAP4, so it's a pretty similar metagame to what you're used to, just with one extra addition: Aurumoth. It's a Bug / Psychic Pokemon with a concept that is focused on how risk works in competitive Pokemon. It's got some nifty tricks and tools, like Illusion and Quiver Dance, that allow it to make a statement in the tumultuous metagame that is BW2 OU.


    Tournament Rules:

    Specific Rules:
    • Since CAP4 started in early September, BW2 was a much different metagame. We create our Pokemon a snapshot at the metagame at that time. As a result, Garchomp and Kyurem-B are banned, while Genesect is unbanned for the duration of the tournament.
    • Aurumoth is available for this tournament in addition to typical Pokemon allowed within BW2 OU. It is not necessary to put on your team; you could win this tournament without ever putting CAP4 on your team.
    • All other CAPs are banned for this tournament. This isn't the CAP metagame, it is simply the current CAP + current OU.

    General Rules:
    • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
    • Species Clause: A player cannot have two of the same pokémon on their team. For example, a player cannot have two Koffing on his or her team.
    • Sleep Clause: A player cannot put two or more different opposing Pokémon to sleep using attacks that induce sleep to opposing pokémon.
    • Evasion Clause: A player cannot increase their Pokémon's evasion stat with a move that specifically increases evasion. Items or indirect boosts do not break this clause.
    • OHKO Clause: Players cannot use Horn Drill, Guillotine, Sheer Cold, or Fissure in any of their Pokémon's movesets.
    • Battle Timeout: If a player exhausts the timer, he/she loses.
    • Wifi Battle Clause. Team preview must be enabled.
    • All matches must be played on Pokemon Showdown!, since Aurumoth is not implemented anywhere else.
    • It is advised that you start building your teams during sign-ups to make the tournament run smoother.
    • Let me know if you have any questions!
