Approved by Earthworm Smogon Tournament Rules Sign Up Thread Strikeout Tournament - Black/White Edition The Black/White metagame is still relatively young, and has already seen several Pokémon receiving the ban hammer. How will your teambuilding skills fare in an environment where the banlist grows larger each round? As many of you probably know, a Strikeout Tournament revolves around a progressively larger banlist which force people to adapt their teams to the everchanging banlist. Each round, a player may issue a strikeout - that is, they can PM me the name of a Pokémon of their choice which the opponent won't be able to use for the round. Once I get both strikeouts, I send them to the respective players and ask them to reply with their teams (I only need to know the name of the Pokémon used because I need to know the usage statistics of the tournament battles, I'll explain below). Moreover, every round two Pokémon will be globally banned. These two Pokémon are: - The most used Pokémon of the last round - The Pokémon who had been "struck out" most None of the participants will be able to use these Pokémon for the remaining rounds. The list is cumulative, so every round two additional Pokémon will be banned. So, to sum up the rules: Tournament Rules: Tier: Black/White OU Singles Single Elimination Players can't use the Pokémon which is selected as the strikeout by their respective opponents Players can't use any Pokémon from the global banlist Standard Rules: Sleep Clause Species Clause OHKO Clause Evasion Clause Wi-fi Clause Participants (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Participants (open) Participants (close) Frizy KnightoftheWind 199 Lives Fatecrashers ginganinja AndViet elDino .Kyuusei. .Robert Es.Rayky coolking49 Diana Cristal Bluewind Gotesan Yondie franky mudkipmaster Venser zdrup15 Romeert Lady Bug Reachzero Ian15 AlphaJolt Razarz DeathxShinigami King N GokartMozart Bloo Gabranth B-Lulz toshimelonhead Ciele Nachos Plusle Blue Bur Boudouche MikeDecIsHere Agammemnon Jerebap Blue Tornado snorlax Asuya. idiotfrommars fatty Hantsuki RioT X Jackal badabing Eternal Mr br kill SevenDeadlySins Iconic FastFlygon Lamppost Aqualouis kael PK Gaming JabbaTheGriffin D0nut Eater TobesMcGobes Limitless littleloven purplefingers tophway PVBattles Heist ENZ0 Accipender DetroitLolCat Golden Sun Davy Jones Jcpdragonx Lady Salamence SGV YAYtears Blarajan reyscarface Pkrs ssbbm -Manu- Random Pizzaman Engineer Pikachu Supermarth64 Raseri dukefan5 Optimusje SLCalamity Cloud Strife.
