    During the suspect test process many users brought up the theory that there could be a balanced metagame without Pokemon bans so long as restrictions were placed on each Pokemon. This tournament will test that theory through the simplest method of restricting stronger Pokemon--higher tiered Pokemon can only be used a lower level.

    Level Balance Tournament Sign-ups

    Rules:

    • 4th Generation

    • All Pokemon can be used, with the exception of Arceus

    • Pokemon used can be used at a level up to and including that designated for the tier they reside in (If any tier changes occur during the course of the tournament, the new tier lists will be used). Levels were calculated by taking the mean BST of all Pokemon contained in each tier and taking the ratio of mean NU BST to the mean BST of the respective tier. Maximum levels and mean BST are as follows:
    Code:
                Mean BST        Adjusted Level
    Uber        610.21          74
    OU          524.9           86
    BL          530.64          86
    UU          501.98          91
    NU          454.79          100
    
    • Each round will be best of 3 battles, with most deadlines being one week. One exception is the first round, which will be two weeks to allow players time to construct an initial team. Changing teams between battles is allowed.

    Standard Uber Clauses apply:

    • Sleep Clause
    • 1 Hit KO Clause
    • Evasion Clause
    • Species Clause
    • Self-KO Clause
    • Timed Battle
    *Soul Dew is not banned as Latios and Latias are subject to the Uber level restriction
    • Logs will be required for the winner of each match to submit. Please PM me your logs.
