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, 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 2, courtesy of the RNG. Don't forget. Use two of them. Make a team. Send a log afterwards. =) Choose two, and choose wisely. This is an added note. Save your teams. I'm not sure what will happen come finals, but keep your teams anyway. :) Claydol, Cobalion, Cresselia, Hariyama, Crustle, Sceptile, Electivire, Scolipede, Rampardos, Cinccino, Golurk, Floatzel For those of you who are interested, these are the usage statistics from round 1.

Cherub Agent vs. IceCarAdler - activity. Cherub Agent may have VMed first, but never even responded to suggested times. dragonuser vs. Foster - no visible contact. DU responded to my activity PM. This is unfortunate, because of the situation last round with Foster's match... :( bro fist vs. Django - activity. rairyan vs. Kennen - activity. TalkingLion vs. Novaray - activity.

This way, when school starts, I won't be worrying about handling johned matches. (Extensions will be given if I am PMed and asked for them in advance. This almost happened with a round 1 match, but it got done.) Be a good sport. In victory or defeat, this is just Pokemon.
