The Neverused tier has been around for three generations now, but has never been appreciated as much as it is currently. This tournament aims to showcase the underappreciated ADV NU and DPP NU tiers, as well as encouraging more people to play BW2 NU.

Tournament Rules:

  • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
  • Best of three, single elimination tournament. Each match will be one game of ADV NU, DPP NU and BW2 NU.
  • The tierlist for ADV NU will be from UU Stadium, who played and tested the tier extensively. To be clear, NFEs are banned.

  • The tierlist for DPP NU will be Project NU's tierlist, which is the same as Smogon's just without Entei and Espeon. They carried out suspect tests based on Smogon's criteria, results of which can be found here
  • The tierlist for BW2 NU will be whatever the tier is at the start of the current round.
  • ADV and DPP matches should be played on Pokemon Online Groudons Grotto, preferably on PO2. BW2 matches can be player either on Pokemon Online or Pokemon Showdown!
  • If there are still any questions, don't hesitate to PM me or ask in the thread.
Battle Clauses:

  • 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 moves that have a chance of instantly KO opposing Pokémon. For example, Horn Drill is an illegal move to have on a Pokémon's move set.
  • Species Clause. You cannot use the same Pokemon twice on the same team. For example, you cannot use two Koffings.
  • Wifi Battle Clause. Team preview must be enabled. BW2 NU Only.
  • Snover was unbanned before the start of this round, so it is allowed in BW2 NU

Why I'm eliminated? if my rival of r2 never can play...
On December 8th he told you he could play for the rest of the week, and neither of you made an attempt to contact each other for 13 days after that. As such, your match was coinflipped and you lost. Yes you posted an "activity win request" on December 15th but that means nothing without actually attempting to contact your opponent.

If HnC and I can't get it done by extension deadline, he def deserves the win.

I was online at the same server as Hot N Cold the moment he won against Brammi. I called him to play, he didnt want to bcuz wanted to make diff teams(why?). So I was waiting for him to contact...
