    Want to discuss your new Giratina set in Balanced Hackmons? What about good strategies in Random Battle/Challenge Cup? Made a cool new Monotype team? Need to schedule a match for a meta that isn't implemented such as PU or Tier 10?

    Whatever it is, as long as it relates to other metagames, #othermetas on irc or the Other Metas room on Pokemon Showdown are perfect for you.

    Keep in mind that timezones are a big factor regarding the activity of the channel. Also, make sure to check this thread for new tournament listings as they are subject to change.

    We will now have daily IRC tournaments on #othermetas. Any tier that has a thread in this forum that isn't locked is eligible to be played in these tournaments. These tournaments will usually happen around 4-8 PM GMT -5. When one begins, you may nominate tiers that are to be played in the mini-tournament. After a few minutes, whichever metagame is nominated the most will be the tier for that tournament. You will have 20-30 minutes to build a team so don't worry if you don't have a team for that particular tier already.

    So what are you waiting for? Get on that channel and participate in these mini-tournaments!

    We just held our first mini-tournament today. The tier we played was 3 Pokemon Tier. It was a pretty fun tournament and we managed to get 8 people to participate which was awesome and surprising. The winner of the tournament was MrUncompetitive who ended up winning with a team of Reuniclus / Conkeldurr / Hydreigon.
