    It’s finally time for the most anticipated tournament of the year, the Ubers Open. Good luck to everybody as we begin our journey to find out who can harness the true biblical power of the Leviathan, Kyogre, and the Behemoth, Groudon. Remember: the only things bigger than Uber Pokemon are the penises of Ubers players.

    Tournament Rules:
    • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
    • Grand Slam rules can be found here.
    • Standard BW2 Ubers
    • Best of three, single elimination.
    • The banlist for this tournament is the same as the Ubers ladder of the Smogon University server of Pokemon Showdown (lol)
    • If tier changes occur during the middle of a round, they will take effect in the subsequent round (lol)
    • Battles should take place on Pokemon Showdown! unless both players agree otherwise.*

    A bunch of rulings I expect you all to read (open)
    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 kinds of factors are pretty bad for tournament security, and thus I will make this clear: If I hear any whispers of identity theft (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.

    Highlight Matches

    Pocket vs soviet

    Having bested Hugendugen recently in BW1 Ubers, can rising star Soviet face off against all-generation allstar Pocket? Or will Pocket, who gave pi face his only loss in spl3, display his surgical precision and disturbingly indepth knowledge of Pokemon biology and hold his own?
    WILL POCKET SHOVE IT IN SOVIETS SOCKET? OR WILL SOVIET BE ABLE TO INSERT HIS MAN DOMINANCE? ~Poppy

    Malekith vs Zebraiken

    Steven Snype vs Hantsuki

    Deadline for this round is September 12th. Extensions have until the 8th.

    Quick note about activity wins. If your opponent gives you an explicit date and time he can play, or he gives you exact times where he's free, please DO NOT simply respond with "i'm free sometime next week." That will get your opponent the activity win every time. Make an effort to actually schedule a match. A lot of activity wins last round were decided because of this.

    lost 2-0. A lot of hax went both ways in both games and I would've liked to see how it turned it out if those crits and burns didn't eventuate.

    EDIT: Yeah, and your two crits as well. Also, if you didn't burn my rayquaza my crits wouldn't have mattered as I was on +2, if you didn't burn my Arceus-Steel I could've used it as deathfoder instead of having my latias take a huge hit (which meant I couldn't KO the mon who killed my rayquaza).

    No worries, it's Pokemon. Sometimes you get lucky, sometimes you don't. Good luck in the future rounds.
