    Shaking up RU


    One of the coolest aspects about playing the lower tiers is how they change every few months. Pokemon move up and down the tiers, shaking up the metagames and testing the players' abilities to adapt. This tournament will take this test to the next level for RU players, forcing them to constantly adjust each round as something either moves up from RU or down from UU/BL2.

    Rules and Clauses (open)
    Tournament Rules:​


    • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
    • Best of one, single-elimination
    • Standard RU - Singles
    • The banlist for this tournament will be the Smogon University RU banlist, with an exception: each round, either something from RU will be banned, or something from UU/BL2 will be made legal. These changes are cumulative.
    • Should the banlist change while the tournament is running, the banlist at the time of the start of the round will be used for that round.

    Clauses:​

    • Evasion Clause
    • OHKO Clause
    • Sleep Clause
    • Species Clause
    • Timed Battle
    • Wifi Clause
    • Team Preview

    Previous Rounds (open)
    Round 1: Standard RU, except Froslass is now legal. Because this is the first round, and new teams will likely have to be created, you have 2 weeks to complete your battles. After that, I'll make activity/coin flip calls. Good luck, have fun, and let's get these matches done ^.^

    Round 2: Standard RU, but Sceptile is now banned. Also, Froslass remains legal from last round. You have 10 days to get your battles done! Good luck, everyone ^.^

    Round 3: Standard RU, except Durant is unbanned. Additionally, Sceptile remains banned and Froslass remains legal from previous rounds. You have 9 days to get your battles completed. Good luck, have fun ^.^

    Round 4: Standard RU, except Slowking is now banned. Also, Durant and Froslass remain legal and Sceptile remains banned from previous rounds. You have 7 days to finish this round up. Let's get it ^.^

    Semi-Finals: Standard RU, except Krookodile is now legal. Also, Durant and Froslass remain legal and Slowking and Sceptile remain banned from previous rounds. We're in the semi-finals, so the johns should finally be out. You have 7 days to make your teams and get your battles in. Good luck ^.^

    Finals: Woo, finals! All three of you did awesome work, but the can be only one~ We're playing Standard RU (including the recent tier changes; bye bye Cofagrigus, hello Stoutland), except Bisharp (the mon we all hoped would drop) is now legal. Also, Krookodile, Durant, and Froslass are still legal and Slowking and Sceptile are still banned by previous rounds. Good luck you three, and have fun ^.^

    Finals Pairings:

    DestinyUnknown vs Living Things
    Living Things vs SilentVerse
    SilentVerse vs DestinyUnknown

    Since there was a draw, the finalists have to play another round robin with Moltres banned as well :3

    Finals Round 2:

    DestinyUnknown vs Living Things
    Living Things vs SilentVerse
    SilentVerse vs DestinyUnknown
