    The Inaugural BW2 OU Tournament
    Approved by ME

    Welcome one and all to the very first BW2 OU tournament here at this fine institution known as Smogon. The release of Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2 in Japan has shaken up the OU metagame considerably, and throughout this tournament, players have had the opportunity to battle in this completely new tier. After six rounds of fierce competition, we have finally arrived to the finals, where metagame changer xtranus will have to face off against two of the finest players known to Germany, Ginku and Lohgock, with the former said to be black according to an ever reliable source: a drunken CrashingBoomBang. Who will win? Will Iconic ever stop pretending to be on vacation just so he can take control of this OP? Why did it take Bloo and hour to find a picture of a Gothitelle? Only time will tell. Good luck to each finalist!
