    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


    Round 1 (open)
    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 2 Pairings:

    B-lulz vs Eustatic
    AuraRayquaza vs Shining Latios
    -PkmTrainerBlue- vs Brap
    Akumetsu vs Chacal
    Dracule Mihawk vs Gone to the beach
    HGI vs SoulWind
    Andeby vs xThunderBirdx
    DarkLoic vs SilentVerse
    BlocksRcool vs blarajan
    papai noel vs Zebraiken
    LuckOverSkill vs IceCarAdler
    Espo vs McMeghan
    BattleStar vs Bigblue
    Sayonara vs Texas Cloverleaf
    august vs .Robert
    W M vs DetroitLolcat
    DestinyUnknown vs viashinomage
    DittoCrow vs dragonuser
    MOET vs davidness
    Ordile vs Ningildo
    Brotom vs Seco453

    Except when I checked his page, I found no VMing going on between either of you. I coin flipped it because I saw no activity on either end, sans you posting "Activity", but with no evidence backing it up (a simple "we've been PMing", "scheduled something on IRC", or just actually VMing him, would've clarified things a lot for me).

    As I said, I just went with the coin flip, and he won. Sorry mate :/

    Alright, T-Bird, I've switched you in against Andeby instead. Please schedule your match through VM rather than PM, so I can actually see the activity.

    Felix, if you have something to add to the matter, please PM about it.
