    RBY Tradebacks Tournament
    Sign-Ups | Round 1 | Round 2 | Round 3
    Hosted by Princess Bri

    Introduction:

    Tradeback: A Pokémon taught a move in a later game and traded back to the earlier game. Most notable in the first generation of Pokémon, where certain Pokémon could learn moves in the second generation which would augment their movepools.

    This tournament will be allowing you to use GSC Tradebacks. This means you will have Amnesia Persian, Hypno, etc. making the metagame much more offensive, consequently very different. This tournament will be a test of seeing if you can adjust to the new metagame and play accordingly. For more information on RBY Tradebacks, you can view these two articles describing the more prominent tradebacks and Pokemon that benefit from them.

    Tournament Rules:

    Specific Rules:

    • GSC Tradebacks are allowed.
    • All matches must be played on the Pokemon Online v2 Simulator or Netbattle since they have RBY and a specific option to allow you to build with tradebacks.
    General Rules:
    • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
    • Species Clause: A player cannot have two of the same Pokémon on their team. For example, a player cannot have two Koffing on his or her team.
    • 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 Horn Drill, Guillotine, or Fissure in any of their Pokémon's movesets.
    • Battle Timeout: If a player exhausts the timer, he/she loses.
    • Freeze Clause: Only one Pokemon can be frozen on your opponent's team at a time.
    • Ubers Clause: You may not use Ubers in this tournament. Mewtwo and Mew are banned for the entirety of said tournament.
    Matchups:

    kael vs Cristal
    dashunicorn vs DestinyUnknown
    Soulwind vs davidness

    Deadline:

    23:59 (EST) on June 25th, 2013

    Activity wins will be given from proof via Visitor and Private Messages as well as PS! and IRC logs. Getting your battle done expedites the tournament exponentially, and it makes it much less of a hassle for both me and you! Thanks.

    It has been difficult to play with my opponent because the forums were down, he didn't answer my messages when the forums worked and he didn't log on IRC.

    The problem is that I'm on vacation now and I won't be back at home until the 20th July. I can try to find some way to play but it's not looking too well.
