    UU Can Party Too
    aka Lower Tiers Need Love

    Approved by Earthworm and the Tournament Director Team
    Hosted by SethZiBritannia

    This is a BW2 OU tournament!

    Tournament Description:

    UU, BL (and BL2), and RU have some excellent threats just waiting in the wings for OU players to bring them into the mix. Underrated Pokemon run amok in the lower tiers. This is the premise of this tournament. Each round, pokemon will be randomly selected from lower tiers (UU, RU, BL[2], and possibly NU) and presented in a list in the OP. The player’s job is to choose two Pokemon from this list and build an OU team around those Pokemon.

    The list of pokemon to choose from will be randomly generated and about twelve pokemon long. 3 will be definitely UU, 5 will be definitely RU, and the rest will be randomly generated from all tiers (BL - NU). This tournament will test your ability to implement lower tier Pokemon into a harsh OU metagame, and also test your ability to adapt to newer threats with which you OU players may not be as readily familiar.

    This tournament emphasizes teambuilding, as the lists will change each round.

    Here is your Pokemon list for round 1, courtesy of the RNG. Don't forget. Use two of them. Make a team. Send a log afterwards. =) Choose two, and choose wisely.

    Zoroark, Crobat, Registeel, Archeops, Cofagrigus, Cryogonal, Accelgor, Smeargle, Slaking, Regice, Emboar, Durant

    If you post and wish to be a substitute, you will get priority subbing. Anyone else who wishes to be a substitute, just post in the thread.

    Due to the fact that this tournament emphasizes teambuilding, and this is round 1, the deadline is two weeks. Deadline is at midnight, GMT-4, on 08/27/12. Don't miss this deadline. They will shorten significantly after this round.

    Be a good sport. In victory or defeat, this is just Pokemon.

    yeah, i took one look at that list and groaned. i really don't feel like making a team right now or anywhere in the near future. it would be unfair to mike and the whole tournament if i held it up, so i guess i'm the irst dropout. first ever tournament drop out FTW!!!!! :D :D :D XD XD :D XD XD :D :D :D
