GSC UUBL Tournament #3 - Won by BeeOrSomething

The GSC UUBL tournament returns for its 3rd iteration! GSC UUBL has continued to develop in the time since the previous tournament, leading to innovations such as Curse + Roar Kangaskhan, Thunder Porygon2, and Thunderbolt + Toxic Ampharos that have been making waves in the metagame. What new strategies and structures will we see rise to the top this time? I can't wait to see!

Sample Teams:
General Rules/Clauses:
  • Freeze Clause: If a player has already frozen an opposing Pokémon using a freeze-inducing move and that Pokémon is still frozen due to that freeze inducing move, the player cannot freeze another opposing Pokémon with a freeze-inducing move.
  • Sleep Clause: If a player has already put an opposing Pokémon to sleep using a sleep-inducing move and that Pokémon is still sleeping due to that sleep-inducing move, the player cannot put another opposing Pokémon to sleep using a sleep-inducing move.
  • Species Clause: A player cannot have two of the same species of Pokémon on their team, based on the National Pokédex number. For example, a player cannot have two Koffing on their team.
  • Evasion Clause: Players cannot use Double Team or Minimize in any of their Pokémon's movesets.
  • OHKO Clause: Players cannot use Horn Drill, Guillotine, Sheer Cold, or Fissure in any of their Pokémon's movesets.
  • Timer Clause: If a player exhausts the timer, they lose.
  • Cleric Clause: Pokémon must be at full health and without status conditions at the start of battle.
  • SleepTrap Clause: Having a sleep-inducing move and Mean Look or Spider Web on the same moveset is not allowed.
