    Sign-Ups | Round 1 | Round 2

    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 this tournament will give us our first real glimpse on this completely new tier. How well can you adapt to these changes? Will this tournament allow us to determine the brokenness of these powerful new OU threats? How long will it take for Bloo to return from his latest ragequit? Over the course of this tournament, we will attempt to answer these pressing questions!

    Tournament Rules:

    • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
    • Standard OU.
    • Best of one, single elimination.
    • BW2 move tutor moves are allowed.
    • Salac Berry is allowed.
    • Soul Dew is banned on Latios and Latias.
    • Keldeo, Landorus-T, Tornadus-T, and Thundurus-T are all allowed.
    • Darkrai, Shaymin-S, Deoxys, Deoxys-A, Manaphy, Blaziken, Garchomp, Excadrill, Thundurus, Kyruem-B, and Kyruem-W are all banned.
    • If tier changes occur during the middle of a round, they will take effect in the subsequent round.
    • Battles should take place on Pokemon Showdown! unless both players agree otherwise.*

    Battle Clauses:

    • Evasion Clause
    • OHKO Clause
    • Sleep Clause
    • Species Clause
    • Soul Dew Clause
    • Timed Battle
    • Team Preview

    Deadline:

    All battles must be complete by Monday, August 6th at 11:59 p.m. EST. Atticus and HoiPolloi have until the 3rd to do their match, which is when HoiPolloi returns from vacation. To hopefully help players schedule their matches, I've linked every participant's user profile in the matchups. Send your opponent a VM or PM as soon as you read this. Good luck friends and have fun!

    * Given Pokemon Showdown is having troubles with the server, I would ask that PO2 become the default simulator for this round. It's not too different from PO1, and you can download it here.
