Smogon Frontier - Rules

Battle Rules

Before battling a Frontier Brain, make sure to follow these rules:

  • All matches will be standard BW1 OU.
  • All matches must be played on Pokemon Online.
  • You are not allowed to use Pokémon classified as "Uber".
  • All tiers are based on Smogon tiers.
  • Species Clause: A player cannot have two or more of the same Pokémon on their team. For example, a player cannot have two Koffings on his or her team.
  • 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 do break this clause, but indirect boosts do not.
  • OHKO Clause: Players cannot use moves that have a chance of instantly KOing opposing Pokémon. For example, Horn Drill is an illegal move to have on a Pokémon's move set.
  • Timed Battle must be enabled.
