    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

    ouch Iconic was not who I wanted to draw first round

    Then again I was barely finding ways to lose in tournaments against weaker opponents so maybe I'll find a way to win agaisnt a stronger one!

    Sent in my strikeout.

    Sent my strikeout, will VM my opponent as soon as I get his strikeout and hopefully arange a match soon. Also if I reach round two I will celebrate somehow because I don't see Reach losing to me any time soon.
