    The Metagame Tweak - What it means to be OU

    Approved by the TD Team
    Art Pending



    What defines a Pokémon to be OU? Is it base stats? Ability? Moveset? If some things had it a little differently, would they still forever sit in the shadows and be outclassed – or would they rise up and take back their throne. In this tour, we discover what could have happened if Game Freak had altered the playing field a little bit.
    In this tour I change several Pokémon per round to experiment and see what happens if certain Pokémon got something a little different from Game Freak.



    Rules

    • Standard OU – but I will be changing a few select Pokѐmon.
    • Battles are to be made on the Pokѐcommunity Server – Under FireMage’s Tournament (Challenege --> FireMage’s Tournament)
    • All changes I make will be Flavourful AND Competitive (Ie, no Speed Boost Slowbro however, Magic Guard Gardevoir might make the cut)
    • Any changes I make will carry on and be in effect for the remainder of the tournament (unless I say so)(So round 1 changes will carry over into Round 2,3 and beyond.)
    • All Changes will be to movepools and abilities. Stats will not be effected.
    • Single Elimination
    • You do not have to play with the changed pokѐmon in the first few rounds. After Round 3 you will be required to use at least one.
    • All standard tournament rules and clauses are in effect – they can be viewed here
    • If something shanged is equivalent to a Dream World ability then all illegalities that go with it being a Dream World ability go with it. (For example, 3rd Gen tutor / Event / XD moves can't be used in tandem with any DW abilities) All illegalities will be explained in each post (if applicable)
