General Rules: -These battles can take place on either Shoddy Battle or Pokemon Online, please be capable of downloading both programs if you only have one, to avoid incompatibility. -64 man tournament (6 rounds, one for each stat) -Teams can only consist of Pokemon whose highest base stat is the one chosen for that round (list is provided below). -Pokemon on Smogon's Uber tier list are banned. -The winner has to PM me a log of their match, or post it for everyone! Clauses: -OHKO Clause -Sleep Clause -Evasion Clause -Freeze Clause -Species Clause -Timed Battle -Self KO Clause Notes: -Pokemon don't necessarily have to focus EVs/movesets on the chosen stat, (ex: if Atk is the chosen stat, Arcanine can be used, but it is allowed to run a special set if desired). Mixed sets are also allowed. -NFE Pokemon can be used, especially if their evolution is banned due to being uber or to stat conditions (ex: Shelgon in Def, Poliwhirl in Spe, etc) -Pokemon with tied highest base stats are be allowed in all rounds in which the tied highest stats are chosen (ex: Celebi [allowed in all 6 rounds], Mismagius [allowed in SpA, SpD, and Spe]), however, there is a limit. Only one Pokemon whose base stats are all identical (ex. Celebi, Castform) can be used per team. This is to reduce the surprise factor. These Pokemon are denoted with a +.
