    If you haven't heard, we've decided to revise Smogon's tiering system. Everyone knows that the OU council is run by people who don't actually play, and suspect tests are just ban-happy bandwagoning fools who don't appreciate what Blaziken and Shaymin-S contribute to the metagame. Our new system will be a democracy: everyone will have a say.

    The Unscrupulous Tiering Director Tournament

    Rules:
    Standard OU rules apply
    - No Ubers
    - Evasion Clause
    - OHKO Clause
    - Sleep Clause
    - Species Clause
    - Drizzle + Swift Swim Clause
    - Moody Clause
    - Wifi Battle
    - Timed Battle

    This is a BW2 Tournament. Battles are to be played by default on Showdown, but can be played on PO if both people agree.

    Sign-up Instructions (open)
    In your sign-up post, include exactly two Pokemon, moves, or items you wish to ban. Please use the following format:

    ----

    You can ban two Pokemon (Hippowdon and Flaaffy)
    You can ban two moves (Lava Plume and Flare Blitz)
    You can ban two items (Fist Plate and Magnet)
    You can ban a Pokemon and a move (Reuniclus and Icy Wind)
    You can ban a Pokemon and an item (Dragonite and Leftovers)
    You can ban a move and an item (Hyper Beam and Life Orb)

    If you ban the original Pokemon, it will NOT ban any alternate formes.

    You CANNOT ban combinations (U-turn + Earth Power, Stone Edge + Close Combat on Terrakion)
    You CANNOT ban parts of Pokemon (Speed Boost on Sharpedo, Magic Mirror Xatu)
    You CANNOT ban strategies (Dragon Spam, VoltTurn)
    You CANNOT ban abilities (Sheer Force, Flash Fire)
    You CANNOT ban users (Bloo, Stone_Cold)

    You may not ban the same thing twice (yourself). That's just pointless, and I will not count your sign-up post if you do so. If you really don't want to ban anything else, ban Magikarp.

    Whatever you ban will remain banned for EVERYONE in the tournament--that is, until you lose. If you lose in this tournament, you will be deemed unqualified to act as a tiering leader and will be assassinated by Smogon administrators in the middle of the night. Your bans will be revoked at the beginning of the tournament's next round.

    You may ban something even if other people have already banned it. Bans enacted by multiple people will remain in effect until all people with the same ban are eliminated.

    You cannot change your bans! Nobody likes a flipflop tiering leader.

    Substitutes' bans will not take effect. Substitutes will adopt the bans of the players whose positions they take.

    I have included the banlists both in the form of a spreadsheet and in hide tags below. I have also included a list of available OU Pokemon.
