    Hey everyone, I'm somewhat new around Smogon, and I'm very new to the past gens.

    With the Gen 1 OU ladder recently added to showdown, I've been able to learn that game, and I've been fairly successful so far. I wanted to learn how to play Gen 2, since it's the cartridge game that I grew up with. Since there is no setting/gametype for Gen 2, how (or where) is it played? It can't be played in the normal OU setting, and it can't be played in the Gen 1 setting as leftovers are a big deal in Gen 2.

    Basically, how is Gen 2 played if the sleep mechanics can't be implemented on showdown properly?
