Introduction

MOU (pronounced Mew) medley is a tournament which aims to increase the viability of Mew sets that would otherwise be outclassed because of being forced to deal with Mew and Mewtwo. Sets with good special attacks such as ones with Psychic, Blizzard, Thunderbolt should fair better against the likes of Tauros, Zapdos and Waters respectively when under pressure with paralysis, when there is less opportunity to set up. Battle 2 is designed to test this hypothesis out by pitting an RBY Mewbers team with an RBY OU team, while the first battle and potential third battle are RBY Mewbers and OU respectively. A Mewless team was also successful on the Mewbers ladder, so it’s not out of the question for the winner of battle 1 to win the 2nd battle.

Tournament Format
Single Elimination.


Match Format

Battle 1 is played in RBY Mewbers (Mewtwo banned).
Battle 2 bans the winner of Battle 1 from using Mew.
Battle 3 (if necessary) is played in standard RBY OU.
The winner of the match is the first to attain 2 wins.

Battles ending in with no pokemon on either side, due to a Self-KO move (Explosion / Self-Destruct), result in a tie.
Battle ties do not progress either player towards winning the match (battle is replayed).

jcbc has quit/given me the win. Since I only put him through because neither responded to my questions and Holiano admitted missing a scheduled time earlier, I have changed the semi-finalist to Holiano.
