The Inaugural BW2 OU Tournament
Approved by ME



Sign-Ups | Round 1 | Round 2 | Round 3 | Round 4

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? Will reyscarface ever stop being an @$$ slurper and earn his badge back? 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.

Good luck friends and have fun!
