UUber Moves 2: SM Edition!


"What if Scizor got Gear Grind?"
Hello and welcome to the second iteration of UUber moves! This time will be in a new generation with plenty of new mons and moves to work with. As a refresher, UUber moves is a single elimination tournament where every mon on the UU viability rankings has been given a single move to make it "broken" or at the very least much better. We tried to make a small amount of sense in our choices of the moves, however in some cases its a bit of a stretch (s/o Fuga and water spout Bruxish.) In any case, the point of the tour is to have fun and make some cool teams, so have at it!

As per last time, certain obvious moves were not given to mons on account of them being too much even in this format. Special mentions include Thousand Arrows Krookodile, and returning broken UUber, Brave Bird Aero.

In.

As a reminder, UU subforum tours like this one now count toward UU Championships. The number of points you will accrue for placing in this tour will depend on how many sign-ups we have.

Of course, the flipside of that coin is that we will be taking cheating in this tour very seriously. Please read the rules carefully. If you suspect that your opponent may be cheating by including other illegal moves, abilities or EV spreads, please report this to r0ady or myself, and we will investigate. I have no problem banning someone from subsequent UU tours (both subforum tours and big ones like Majors and Classic) if they try to cheat in fun tours like this.
