The Offstat Tourney

Introduction

[14:07] <&@Mekkah> I don't see the big deal. Back in my day, Special Gyarados was nothing to laugh at.
Have you ever wondered how Focus Blast Machamp would fare? How about Choice Band Alakazam? It seems pretty obvious that these sets would be outclassed in standard OU matches. But if everyone's Pokemon were like this, would they go far? Well now is the time to find out!

Rules

  • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
  • Best of three, single elimination.
  • 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. If you're uncomfortable playing on Pokemon Showdown, matches can be played on Pokemon Online v2, which has also updated to BW2.
Special Rules
  • This tournament is standard BW2 OU, except:
  • Pokemon may only use attacks coming off their weaker attack stat (e.g. Machamp can only use Special moves, Espeon can only use Physical moves)*. Status and other non-attacking moves are allowed (e.g. Thunder Wave, Swords Dance, Rain Dance, Protect, Substitute, etc.).
  • Only Pokemon with a difference of at least 50 between their Attack and Special Attack stats are allowed. The list of allowed Pokemon is provided below.
  • For balancing purposes, no hazards are allowed.
*Night Shade is treated as a regular Special move; Seismic Toss is treated as a regular Physical move.

Identity

I expect many battles to be completed under alts and I expect many battles to be completed on other servers to prevent scouting. These kind of factors are pretty bad for tournament security, and thus I will make this clear: If I hear any whispers of identity th eft (battling as someone you are not) or proxy battling (helping someone else battle through pm) I will not be pleased and I will take severe actions.

Scouting

Next, I do not want to hear anything about counterteaming, at all. It is the silliest thing I have ever heard, any battler worth their marbles has more than one team. Do not complain about it. I also don't want to hear about any forceful scouting, whether it be spying on another teams irc channel or following your opponent around on PO. There is a difference between "ipl is known for using stall" and "let me follow ipl around all day to watch all his battles since I am his opponent". I expect a lot of the former and none of the latter.

With that said, I give permission to all battlers to ask any person spectating their battle to leave if they do not want them watching. However, given the fact that this is the big stage, I am sure a lot of people want to watch, so don't be too mean.

Timer Clause

As for taking long between moves, if your opponent asks you to hurry up, please oblige. If you are doing a damage calc for a key turn that is one thing, but prolonging every move is suspicious and annoying. Don't do it. Furthermore, Battle Timeout is a rule for a reason. If you run out of time, you lose, simple as that. It does not matter what your opponent says. Do not battle if you think you will have to leave mid battle, and instead reschedule for a better time. Timing out is still classified as a loss, unless the reason for timing out is a disconnection. If there is any suspicion that a disconnect was carried out deliberately to take advantage of this rule in any way, we reserve the right to exercise a harsh punishment.

Disconnections

If a player disconnects and either player contends that they could still win, the optimal solution is to recreate the exact situation the disconnection occurred at during the battle. If it is agreed between players that this is not feasible due to unreasonable battle length, highly improbable circumstances, or some other reason, the player who did not disconnect may choose to rematch with either the same teams or (the option to use) new teams. Timing out is still classified as a loss, unless the reason for timing out is a disconnection. If there is any suspicion that a disconnect was carried out deliberately to take advantage of this rule in any way, we reserve the right to exercise a harsh punishment. Do not do it.

I know that was a lot to read, but it is all necessary for me to have posted here so everyone can see it in the case of a dispute. I don't want any confusion or any problems.

You have 13 days to get your matches done; the deadline is November 20 2012, Tuesday. Good luck to everyone!

Pairs which I have granted extensions to will have 4 days (until November 11 2012, Sunday) to get their matches done. After this, I will make coinflips/activity wins. Good luck; let's get these matches done!

Forgive me for the double post, but I think this is necessary.

For this round, Kyurem-B is not allowed. So please, please don't PM me about it. Thanks! n‿n

Also, we have a public service announcement here.

Meh, sorry about the coinflip guys, I somehow forgot to add you guys in (probably because I was mad about all the johns and stuff). I'll add you into the OP now.

Yeah, actually why did I allow Kyurem-B anyways? /me slaps self
umm, theoretically I could ban Kyu-B, but it'd be a bit late and these two pairs would have to replay all their matches...

edit: Also apparently there are a few solid counters to it (blissey. magnezone. omastar. gyarados.), so I think it's good to go.

edit2: Okay, I've banned Kyurem-B. Thanks for helping me decide, guys :|

It's two matches... better they replay it than have some dumb rule mess everything up imo

Magnezone gets destroyed by Earth Power, Omastar and Gyarados just get OHKOed and 2HKOed by Dragon Pulse...Blissey I'll give you, but its not exactly the most threatening Pokemon. Anyway idc what you do with it this round but it really shouldn't be allowed next round at least.

I won against The Immortal. The first match was clean, I was lucky the second, it would have been closer without the 3-turns sleep.
