Tournament ADV DOU Money Tournament ($600 PRIZE POOL!!!)

ADV DOU Money Tour

Welcome to the ADV DOU Money Tournament, featuring a $600 prize pool, provided by SuperEpicAmpharos! The prize pool will be split along the higher placing players, with the exact split being announced at a later date.

  • This is a standard ADV Doubles OU tournament
  • This tournament will be Double Elimination
  • Rounds will be Best of Three, and you may switch teams in between battles of the same set.
  • Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown! (Main or SmogTours)
  • To encourage the development of the metagame, and so that everyone is on an even playing field, replays are required for all matches.
  • Activity calls will be made by me, potentially with neutral assistance from a Doubles OU Forum Moderator or Tournament Director. Coin flips will be done publicly on PS!
  • In the event that something is added to or removed from the metagame in the middle of a round, that change will be in effect starting the next round.
  • Do not cheat. Cheating will result in a disqualification. Additional punishments may be applied as necessary. Cheating includes, but is not limited to:
    • Signing up with more than one account
    • Ghosting or being ghosted by another player (e.g. while playing a set, asking for advice about what team to bring or what plays to make)
    • Manipulating match outcomes (e.g. throwing a match in exchange for Smogon likes)
  • Do not harass or insult your opponents. I reserve the right to disqualify anyone breaking this rule. Additional punishments may be applied as necessary.

Unbans and Mechanic Differences

The following Pokemon are unbanned in ADV DOU:

Notable mechanics differences:
  • The most important: When a Pokemon is made to faint, the replacement is sent in before the turn ends.
  • There is no team preview. The first two slots on your team are your lead.
  • Types are physical or special, not moves.
  • Hidden Power exists and has 70 BP.
  • Protect has a 1/2 chance of working in succession, instead of 1/3.
  • Spread moves have 50% damage reduction, instead of 75%.
  • Spread moves that target the entire field (Earthquake, Explosion) have no spread reduction.
  • Type-specific boosting items like Charcoal only boost moves by 10%.
  • Steel resists Ghost and Dark.
  • Explosion and Self-Destruct deal double damage.
  • Sandstorm does not boost Rock types' Sp.Def.
  • Ability-summoned weather conditions are permanent.
  • Surf does not damage your ally.
  • Critical hits do 2x damage.
