What is this? With current revisions to the Pokemon Showdown Sim page underway, we are looking to replace the current list explaining tiers and clauses with a more Showdown specific version, including every metagame hosted on Pokemon Showdown as a playable ladder. Each tier will have a list detailing both things banned in it, a list containing the various clauses in play, and a short description of how the tier plays, written in a way to encourage users to try it out. Where do I come in? Unfortunately, I'm not very well versed in quite a few of Pokemon Showdown's tiers, and thus am unable to write a truly accurate depiction of the individual metagames. I do however, have access to a large competitive community teeming with experts in the various tiers, experts who are much more qualified to write a tier's description. The entries will later be collected and used to create a more complete list of tiers on Smogon's Sim page. Authors of approved descriptions will be noted in the page for their contribution. What are the rules? Anyone is allowed to write an entry for a tier they consistently play in, however, council members of those tiers will possess the ability to override another user's entry if they feel it is not an accurate description of the tier. Entries will be limited to between 100 and 200 words. We want the descriptions to be long enough to give users a good idea of the tier, and short enough as to not bore people. Focus your entries on how the tier is played, who are the important mons and how do they affect the metagame. Keep in mind that this is meant to be for users who have no idea what the tier is like. We will be covering rules and clauses separately from the descriptions, so please leave them out of your submissions.
