Approved by Kevin Garrett Tournament Rules How to Join and Host a Tournament The Stat Specialization Tournament - Sign-Ups! Overview: The tournament is 'standard' OU, but the gimmick is that each round a specific base stat is chosen and the only Pokemon allowed during that round are those whose highest base stat is the one chosen. This should make for a metagame where nearly every Pokemon specializes in the same thing. 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 will be provided in OP). -Pokemon on Smogon's Uber tier list are banned. -Winners have to PM me a log of their match to show that both teams were legal. -You are not allowed to join if you are ICBB status or you are banned from joining tournaments. 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. Please be familiar with both the general tournamant rules (linked at top) and the specific rules of this tournament before signing up. FC-FS Sign-Ups: 1. little loven 2. uclafan101 3. Mercy 4.
