    No Rocks: Gen 4 OU With a Twist
    Approved by Alaka

    The days of Generation 4 are coming to a close in the world of competitive Pokemon. I thought it would be fun to see what the metagame would be like without the most overused move in all of Gen 4.

    Round 1


    Rules

    Matches will be 6v6 lvl 100 single battles

    Single Elimination

    Team changes are allowed between rounds

    No gen 5 pokemon, moves, items, or abilities

    No Hacks
    - Not even legit hacks.

    No Ubers

    *No Stealth Rocks* - That's right! Get creative and re-run your calcs because the move Stealth Rock is banned! All other entry hazards are allowed.

    Sleep Clause - You may only put one of your opponent's pokemon to sleep at a time. If your opponent uses Rest or if Effect Spore causes sleep, that does not count.

    Species Clause - No 2+ of the same Pokemon per team. Example: 2 Charizards are on your team.

    Hax Items Clause - The items Bright Powder, Focus Band, Quick Claw, King's Rock, Razor Fang, Scope Lens, and Razor Claw are banned.

    Evasion Clause - The moves Double Team and Minimize are banned.

    OHKO Clause
    - The moves Horn Drill, Sheer Cold, Guillotine, and Fissure are banned.

    Self KO Clause
    - You cannot use Selfdestruct, Explosion, or Destiny Bond if you are down to your last Pokemon.

    Please follow all other rules in the Tournament Sticky

    Each round is scheduled to start on Saturday and end on Friday. If all matches get done before Friday, the new round will start early.

    Managed to defeat Gabe in a very hectic fun filled game. Very close, and it was enjoyable. Kept me on my toes.

    Just three more days to get your battles done people! If anyone hasn't heard from their opponent yet, let me know. Everyone should have at least attempted to communicate by now.

    Try to get it done by Friday. I'll follow up with you guys later this week to see how it's coming along.

    I've had two requests for extensions and only half of the matches are done. I've lurked enough to notice that at least everyone is attempting to communicate with their opponent. So...I would like to see some activity posts from people that haven't posted by tomorrow before I decide about extensions. If it looks like you guys are actually trying to get your battles done, I might think about extending round 1 through the weekend. If not, we'll have to figure something else out.

    Okay, I have decided to extend round 1 until the end of the day on Sunday the 13th. PMs have been sent out to everyone that has not completed their match. I've already heard back from most of you. Please reply if you haven't yet or I will assign wins based on activity or coin flips.

    VM'd Loukas right now, because he's online. I hope he VM's back ...

    EDIT: Well, around 20 minutes have passed since I got online today, I VM'd him twice, and he didn't answer. Something urgent came up and I have to go, sorry.
