SPECIFIC RULES
  • This is a standard Gen 2 OU Tournament. All matches must be played in "[Gen 2] OU".
  • This tournament will be Double Elimination.
  • In the situation where both players end the game with no Pokemons left, a tie is declared.
  • All rounds will be First to 2 Wins. You may switch teams in between battles of the same set.
  • Matches are to be played on Pokémon Showdown (or smogtours server).
Clauses:
  • Sleep Clause Mod: Limit one foe put to sleep
  • Freeze Clause Mod: Limit one foe frozen
  • Species Clause: Limit one of each Pokémon
  • OHKO Clause: OHKO moves are banned
  • Evasion Moves Clause: Evasion moves are banned
  • HP Percentage Mod: HP is shown in percentages
General Tournament Rules:

  • Identity: I expect many battles to be completed under alts. This can be bad for tournament security, and thus I will make this clear: If I hear any whispers of identity theft (battling as someone you are not) or proxy battling (helping someone else battle through pm) I will not be pleased and I will take severe actions.
  • Timer Clause: As for taking long between moves, if your opponent asks you to hurry up, please oblige. If you are doing a damage calc for a key turn that is one thing, but prolonging every move is suspicious and annoying. Don't do it. Furthermore, Battle Timeout is a rule for a reason. If you run out of time, you lose, simple as that. It does not matter what your opponent says. Do not battle if you think you will have to leave mid battle, and instead reschedule for a better time.
  • Disconnections: Finally, in the case of a disconnect, the decision is in the hands of the player who did not disconnect. The options are: redo the battle move for move, redo the battle with the same teams but different moves, or redo the battle with completely different teams. If the battle was without a doubt over, they may also take the win. Any suspicion that a disconnect was committed on purpose to redo a match may be appealed to me, and if I feel this happened there will be severe consequences, don't do it.

Why exactly did I lose via activity last round? I had a less than stellar last week and couldn't play much in my morning (only time that was compatible for us) so we got an extension and Djokra was nowhere to be found on both ps main and stours any time in the range we had agreed on 2 days in a row. Did anyone even look at the VMs on my wall? That'd be grounds to make it a coinflip at best, but I actually just wanted to play and get it done. Can the decision actually be explained to me?
 
Well we were supposed to play on saturday but my opponent got forum banned and i haven't seen him on stours or main this weekend, so yeah activity...

It was a flip loss . . . I apologize for miswriting the loss reason and thus causing this confusion.
