    Rules

    Evasion moves will be allowed
    XD moves will be allowed
    OHKO moves will not be allowed
    Sleep Clause
    Freeze Clause
    Species Clause
    Only pokemon in the overused section and below may be used.
    (That means you cannot use ubers)

    Because of the potential unexpected nature of teams in this tourney, it will be double elimination. Be aware, however, that I will have little patience for competitors who procrastinate in the loser's bracket.

    This tournament is basically to test the effects of introducing evasion into this already established metagame. It is a direct byproduct of this thread. Please keep only tournament relevant conversation here and keep further discussion on gameplay issues in that thread.

    OHKO's will not be allowed because they have not been addressed in depth yet and most people feel that introducing both at once would make for an ugly transition.

    I have no idea what kind of response this will generate so it may be as small as 16 or as large as 64. Sign ups close May 19. Ready, set, sign up.

    As much as DT does happen to offend me, I can't pass on an opportunity for such an awesome idea. Totally in with my Minimize Blissey.

    I will play but will maybe not even use DT because I dont even think it is beneficial at all. I will pack a whole bunch of haze though!
