This tournament will start off with Standard DPP OU in round 1, but as time goes on will develop into a crazier and crazier meta-game. After each round the top 4 most used Pokemon will be banned and a new meta-game will be developed. This will lead to a new and crazy meta-game each round of the tournament. The DPP OU Banlist will be locked at the start of round 1 and the only way things can be banned are through use. This tournament will count towards Smogon Championship.

Differences between the SM version and the DPP one:

  • 4 pokémon will be banned each round instead of 6, thats because DPP has less mons than SM and it can turn into DPP UU so fast if I ban 6.
  • Its Bo3 instead of Bo1. If you didn't have luck in the DPP Cup try this!
  • Rotom-A counts as one only pokemon, not as 5 different forms, they will be banned together.
  • Replays are a must. Non revealed pokémon won't count for the bans.
  • If there is a tie for banning, I will look the usage of the past round, and the most used pokemon will be the banned one.

Tournament Rules:
  • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here
  • Best of three, DPP OU single elimination tournament.
  • Sign-Ups will last for a few days and the amount of interest will determine how large the tournament will be.
  • You must submit the replays with your victory post so I can gather statistics
  • If there are still any questions, don't hesitate to PM me
Battle Clauses:
  • 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.
  • OHKO Clause. Players cannot use moves that have a chance of instantly KO opposing Pokémon. For example, Horn Drill is an illegal move to have on a Pokémon's move set.
  • Species Clause. You cannot use the same Pokemon twice on the same team. For example, you cannot use two Infernape.
