    Welcome to the Prestigious Apprentice Cup!

    The Rules:
    • Standard OU - All matches must be played on Shoddy Battle
    • No Ubers - Please check the home page of Smogon to figure out which these are, no Wobbufet or Deoxys (Any Form)
    • Species Clause - You must use six different Pokemon. This means you can't use a Rhyperior that has Hammer Arm and one with Horn Drill on the same team, even though they have different sets.
    • Self-KO Clause - You cannot use moves like Explosion or Destiny Bond on your last Pokémon if it will force a tie.
    • Sleep Clause - You can only put to sleep one Pokémon on an opponent's side at any time. If you use Spore to put one Pokémon asleep, you cannot use it again to put another Pokémon asleep until the first one wakes up.
    • Freeze Clause - If at anytime two different Pokémon are frozen on a player's field, then the player that froze the two Pokémon loses.
    • Evasion Ban - Moves that specifically increase evasion are banned. Double Team is an example of a banned move.
    • OHKO Ban - Moves that have a chance of OHKOing a Pokémon are banned. An example is Sheer Cold.
    • No scouting other peoples teams. You cannot watch ANY battle of the people in your division. Also, to prevent scouting in general, I give every participant the right to ask someone to stop watching their battle (To prevent person X from scouting on behalf of person Y in the divsion).
    • Also, be sure to follow the Basic Tournament Signups Thread
    • Battle Time must be on!
    This has been approved by both Groudon80 and Aeolus!

    Wow, no one predicted for me >< No pressure! XD I'll try to PM Kira/L, maybe we can get our battle going.

    edit: I registered on the Create-a-Pokemon server, and since it's a fight between fellow Death Note viewers, my nick there is Watari (the other names were taken ><)

    I am online right now... what is your shoddy name?

    edit: I should mention that the official server will not work for me for some odd reason. So if you can get on the CAP server that would be great.
