    Intro:
    We've all heard the saying "YOLO" (You only live once) at some point in our lives due to some idiot making it popular in this generation. It has been used for various excuses and decisions, but it has never truly been applied to the world of competitive battling. This tournament will fix that.

    Tour-Specific Rules:
    • YOLO = Your Pokemon only lives once. No HP-healing moves (offensive moves such as Drain Punch counts as well), abilities, and items are allowed in this tour. Items include berries, Leftovers, Black Sludge, etc. If it restores your HP in any way, it's banned.
    • No entry hazards allowed as well.
    • Best-of-one format.
    • BW2 OU metagame.
    • Single Elimination tournament.

    Banlist (Items / Abilities / Moves) (open)

    Abilities:

    NO Water Absorb, Volt Absorb, Poison Heal, Dry Skin, Ice Body, Rain Dish, and Regenerator.

    Moves:

    NO Heal Pulse, Softboiled, Roost, Recover, Rest, Giga Drain, Absorb, Mega Drain, Horn Leech, Drain Punch, Leech Seed, Dream Eater, Slack Off, Milk Drink, Heal Order, Healing Wish, Lunar Dance, Ingrain, Aqua Ring, Leech Life, Synthesis, Moonlight, Morning Sun, Wish, Present, Pain Split, and Swallow. No Stealth Rock, Toxic Spikes, and Spikes.

    Items:

    NO Leftovers, Black Sludge, Aguav Berry, Enigma Berry, Figy Berry, Iapapa Berry, Mago Berry, Berry Juice, Oran Berry, Sitrus Berry, Shell Bell, Wiki Berry, and Sweet Heart.

    It's 99% positive that I forgot something in there; please bring it to my attention if I did.


    General Rules: (Basically Standard Smogon Rules)
    • Sleep Clause: If a player has already put an opposing Pokémon to sleep using a sleep inducing move and that Pokémon is still sleeping due to that sleep inducing move, the player cannot put another opposing Pokémon to sleep using a sleep inducing move.
    • Species Clause: A player cannot have two of the same species of Pokémon on their team, based on the National Pokedex Number. For example, a player cannot have two Koffing on his or her team.
    • Evasion Clause: Players cannot use Double Team or Minimize in any of their Pokémon's movesets.
    • OHKO Clause: Players cannot use Horn Drill, Guillotine, Sheer Cold, or Fissure in any of their Pokémon's movesets.
    • Battle Timeout: If a player exhausts the timer, he/she loses.
    • Moody Clause: A player may not use a Pokémon with the ability Moody.
    • Any games not finished by the deadline (unless extensions are given) will be decided by a coin toss, or given to the player who was more active.
    • If you miss sign ups, you may apply to be a sub (via pm / posting on r1 thread) but no subs after round 1.
