    ~OM of the Month~

    Well guys, it's here! Other Metagame of the Month!

    Every month, one metagame is selected to have its own ladder. This metagame is playable for (obviously) one month. Halfway through the month, nominations and voting will be held for the next metagame. Nominations will be open for one week, during which time you may nominate an existing metagame (you must link to the thread or social group in question) or bring up a new metagame that hasn't been posted yet. In the next few days, voting will be held to determine which metagame will get its own ladder. Whichever metagame receives the most votes will gain a ladder! However, if a metagame receives a ladder for one month, it may not be picked for another five months (or if there are no more metagames with sufficent popularity).

    Current OMotM: Alphabet Cup
    Other Metagame Index
    OMotM Blacklist - do not nominate these! (open)

    Ladder already exists:
    - Random Battle
    - Challenge Cup
    - Challenge Cup 1v1
    - Hackmons
    - Balanced Hackmons
    - Glitchmons
    - TierShift
    - OU Monotype
    - STABmons
    - Inverse Battle

    Cooldown period:
    - Inverse Battle (until May 2014)
    - Averagemons (until June 2014)
    - Middle Cup (until July 2014)

    On request:
    - Gen-NEXT
    - Fail Cup

    Controversial, ineligible until further notice:
    - Not enough legal Pokemon:
    - - Bug Catcher Cup
    - - Fail Cup
    - - Fishmons
    - - RODAN Cup
    - All Gen 5 OMs

    Something I have noticed lately on the main server of PS! is that Little Cup has gained a lot of popularity among our users. This probably has something to do with the Little Cup Voice Ladder Challenge, but regardless, I think that now would be a pretty cool time to see a Little Cup UU ladder. It's definitely something I would play (since usually when I play LC, I like to play with garbage mons anyways), and I think a lot of other people could get behind it too.

    Shouldn't Smogon Doubles be on the blacklist since it already has its own ladder?

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    In other news, I nominate GBU Singles. It's like 3 Pokemon OU but it's bring 6 choose 3, not bring 3 choose 3.
