NO-Weather Ubers Tournament

Artwork by Juicy Fruit from the Artwork for Tournaments Thread!

Weather is a dominating factor in the Ubers metagame—that's a given. With forces such as Groudon and Kyogre controlling the match, and even Tyranitar's ability to set up Garchomp, Excadrill, and similar offensive threats, there's no denying that statement. It's hard to imagine what a metagame without weather would be like, and questions such as "Would people still run Thunder on Palkia?" or "Would Reshiram still be a major offensive threat without sun?" would be pulled out; however, in this tournament, we aim to explore how influential weather is in the metagame.

Tournament Rules:
-BW2 Ubers (Smogon's tiering list reigns supreme)
-6v6 Singles
-Best of Three
-Weather is BANNED (More on this later)

-Wifi Battle
-Species Clause
-Sleep Clause
-Timer Clause
-Evasion Clause
-OHKO Clause

You cannot use any Pokemon with a weather-inducing ability or any weather-inducing moves. This means you cannot use Groudon or Kyogre, and Ninetales with Drought, Politoed with Drizzle, Tyranitar with Sand Stream, Hippowdon with Sand Stream, Abomasnow with Snow Warning, etc. However, you may use a Pokemon that has another ability available (e.g. Ninetales with Flash Fire, Politoed with Damp).

Battles are to be played on Pokemon Showdown!, but if both players agree, battles can occur on Pokemon Online. However, Smogon's tiering rules apply no matter where the battle is held.

Deadline is November 30th at 12:00 PM GMT -6. Please get your matches done!
Why? How was that deemed to be worthy of a coin flip? Please explain.

"Ok, I saw you on Showdown as sovietkenya, but you were in a battle. I would've sent you a message in the battle, but I saw it was an ubers battle and I presumed you were testing your team to use against me. Instead I just sent you a PM which you didn't see and then you left."

How does that alone not warrant me the victory? I posted it to his profile and he's deleted a message he sent to me for unknown reasons.

To further that; we posted stating our timezone, I vaguely suggested of time of 8pm my time, or 3pm his time. He said he couldn't do that until the weekend which was fine with me. However, I did not see him on over the weekend, depsite me beeing on later than the stated time. So that is surely me being more active? Frustrated by his lack of response to that, I tried every opportunity to get the battle done, by posting I was ready to battle on 2 successive days. Then we tried to be clever and cheeky with each other, even though I now realise I had already suggested a time, to which he had never said he blantantly could not make. The rest of the conversation is pretty much self-explanatory.

I question my judgement here a bit though, I am unsure if it would have been wiser to send a message to you directly, the host; Harsha...

Activity post, we're in contact but having some difficulty finding a time to battle each other.

EDIT: I haven't had a response from him in a VM for a while now...
