    The Slimming Down GSC Tournament
    ROUND 3

    Introduction
    Snorlax is the biggest, fattest, most centralizing force in GSC OU. As such, it's hard to imagine what GSC might look like without him around. For this tournament, GSC OU is being slimmed down to the tune of over half a ton with the removal of Snorlax. I'll also be implementing the old ban on Hidden Power Zapdos and Raikou for this tournament to balance those obvious successors to Snorlax's throne.

    In addition to testing the might of participants in the GSC OU tier, this tournament aims to answer the following question: hyperbole aside, to what degree does Snorlax shape the GSC OU metagame? How much will change with him gone, and how much will stay the same?

    • Zapdos and Raikou are permitted to be used, but are not permitted to use the attack Hidden Power on their movesets for any match of this tournament.

    Clauses
    • Species Clause: A player cannot have two of the same Pokémon on their team. For example, a player cannot have two Koffing on his or her team.
    • Sleep Clause: A player cannot put two or more different opposing Pokémon to sleep using attacks that induce sleep to opposing Pokémon.
    • Evasion Clause: A player cannot increase their Pokémon's evasion stat with a move that specifically increases evasion. Items or indirect boosts do not break this clause.

    • Self-KO Clause: If a player uses a recoil move to cause a draw, that player wins. If a player uses Explosion, Selfdestruct, Destiny Bond, or Perish Song to cause a draw, that player loses. If a draw would be caused by a hold item or ability that causes recoil to the opponent, the player that controls the Pokémon with the hold item or ability wins.
    • Sleep Perish Trap Clause: A player may not use a sleep-inducing attack, an indefinite-duration trapping attack (i.e., Mean Look or Spider Web), and Perish Song all on the same moveset of any Pokemon.

    Eo Ut Mortus gets activity over PasY_G. Pretty straightforward, Eo followed through on all communications, PasY_G did not respond to Eo's most recent post suggesting a time for them to play.

    jira gets activity over kael. Less straightforward because there was no visible communication between the two since Monday , but A) jira actually logged onto the forums during the closing weekend, whereas kael did not, and B) kael didn't seem to make attempts to contact jira other than "find me on irc", even after jira looked on irc for kael and VMed him asking for a time to battle.

    Round 4 will be up shortly.
