It was mentioned in the Showdown thread that there might be a discussion about what clauses would be enabled when the RBY ladder finally gets set up, as there are currently no clauses. So this thread is to basically get that started. The two main contentious ones are sleep and freeze clauses. I think most people can agree that there needs to be a sleep clause of some kind, the question is whether it should be mechanical, or whether you should simply be DQd for a second sleep. I personally think it should be the latter, as mechanical SCs didn't exist in the cartridge games. A mechanical SC also allows you advantages that you aren't afforded on cartridge, namely being able to spam sleep moves to catch a pokemon as it wakes up, without worrying about getting DQ'd if they switch to another pokemon instead. You can just simply choose not to use sleep moves after you've landed a sleep, or you can use them at your own risk. I also think there doesn't need to be a freeze clause. Something that has 10% chance to happen on a pokemon that is unstatused or not an ice type, and still alows it limited uses (PP stalling, relieving spc drops, sac etc.) is far less game-breaking than a lot of other stuff that happens in RBY that actually have higher chances of happening (eg, tauros blizzard KOing rhydon with a crit rather than freezing it). As Hipmonlee said in the other thread, it's not as if RBY suddenly becomes non luck based with a FC. Also too, FC was originally created by Nintendo for 3v3, and have only implemented it in the 3v3 games. So what do you guys think?
