    With the new year upon us, it is time to begin the next installment of The Smogon Tour! The format and rules will be the same as before, following the OU/UU/Uber rotation. The first tournament will take place on Saturday, January 17th at 8:00pm Eastern. Sign-ups will be posted then. You'll want to reference the Smogon Tour portion of the website to get full details! Get excited!

    I'm going to assume that the UU tiers will revert back to their previous state, since the current metagame is rather unstable.

    I've heard it would be new UU, although it would be usefull if was stated somewhere

    At least it would sound strange to me if we had to play an official tournament in a tier that doesn't exist anymore and thus can't be practiced

    Ya, read the link that Aeolus provided. If you have any additional questions, ask one of the mods on Shoddy Battle and we can also explain stuff in most cases

    Since the last tour, Smogon has gained some very skilled players in all the tiers. This should be fun to compete in. I just need to attend all of them instead of the 3-4 I did last time. >_<. Thanks Aeolus. :)

    The Smogon Tour reflects the current state of the standard ladder for respective tiers. That should answer any questions about UU.

    This is going to be sick.

    I expect Gallade to still be 6-0ing everything, as he is easily overpowered, also expecting a bunch of Abomnasnow.

    You don't sign up here if that's what you're thinking.

    A sign up thread will be posted at the start time in the Shoddy Battle server, or you can wait here at the start time and refresh until the topic appears.

    Even though I just joined today on forums can I sign up? I play a lot and I can get a 1500+ rating on smogon if you give me a couple hours.
