    Hello again guys, here's another idea to increase activity here in RU.

    How to participate:

    - The RU Mini-Tournaments are run just like an official Smogon tournament. *The first thread/post posted is the sign-ups. *During the sign-ups you post "in".
    - The Rounds will last exactly 3 days from the second the round is posted here in the RU sub-forum. *At the end of the 3 days, I will call any unfinished matches and move to the next round, no exceptions.
    - All of the Rounds will take place in this thread, so keep your eyes peeled for when the round is over and the next round has started!
    - Each mini-tournament will consist of 16, 24, or 32 participants, no more than that or it stops being mini. *First 16 are in for 16- and 24-man tourneys with the last 9 randomized for 24-man tourneys, and the first 20 are in with the last 12 being randomized for 32-man tourneys. *Each sign-ups will try to achieve 32 participants, but if it isn't possible, then it will be a 16- or 24-man tourney with the first 16 that signed up in.



    RU Mini-Tournaments Rules:

    - Battles will be played on Pokemon Showdown!.
    - Standard OU – Gen V RU. Refer to this page and this thread for more information on usable Pokemon.
    - Any Pokémon that is not considered Uber, OU, UU is allowed (refer to the banlist below)
    - If during the middle of a round, a Pokémon, ability combination, etc. moves into or out of RU, those changes will be effective starting in the next round.
    This is a single elimination best of one tournament.
    You may switch your team each round.

    Clauses:

    - Sleep
    - Species
    - Wi-Fi Battle

    Banlist

    Items:
    All items that increase Evasion (BrightPowder, Lax Incense)

    Moves:
    All moves that increase Evasion only (Double Team, Minimize)
    All instant OHKO moves (Fissure, Guillotine, Horn Drill, Sheer Cold)
    Shell Smash + Baton Pass on a single Pokemon

    Abilities:
    Moody
    Drizzle + Swift Swim on the same team
    Drought
    Sandstream

    Any Pokemon in the OU, UU, or BL tiers are banned.

    Other things to note about RU Mini-Tournaments:

    - All Rounds and tournaments will take place in this thread, so keep your eyes peeled for the start of new rounds and sign-ups.
    - Each tournament can and probably will have a quirk dealing with the RU metagame. *We'll start with a standard RU tourney. *Following tourneys will have weird quirks like "you must have 3 Electric-types on your team" or "no top 10 Pokemon."
    - Because most of these tourneys will have weird quirks, please save your logs and be prepared to take a screenshot of the battle should you suspect your opponent of cheating. *However, I do not want your logs and you don't have to submit your teams to me or whoever is running the mini-tourney.
    - Because all of the mini-tourneys will take place in this thread, there won't be more than one tourney running at a time.
    - Any of the above rules are subject to change depending on the tourney.

    Possible Rewards for *multiple* winners:

    - Custom title under your forum name
    - HOPs (Half-ops status (%) in #rarelyused)

    If you have any questions/concerns please don't be hesitate to post them below.

    We've been wanting these bad boys to drop to RU for quite a while now. Well, they've all broken free of their bonds and have come to terrorize our friendly little tier. You may choose ONE of these three Dark-types to use on your team. Will it be the infernal Houndoom, capable of running a lethal Psychic-trapping set using his mixed offenses, our simply sweep with Nasty Plot? Will it be Krookodile, a once former resident of the tier in which I believe was our best metagame before UU stole him, and which can cause despair with it's Moxie Choice Scarf or Life Orb sets? Or will it be the evil knight himself that causes even Ubers to despair, who can abuse his Steel-typing to set up a lethal Swords Dance and put Absol in his rightful place in NU (Don't kill me Molk). Of note is that each of these these villains has an additional immunity that's not Psychic... choose wisely, for there can be only one! Oh yeah, and it'd be cool if you posted your experience with the chosen Pokemon after every battle.
