Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire OU - ADV 200 Cup [Round 2]


is a Tutor
ADV200 Cup

Ever wondered what the metagame was like in 2003? Well now you can find out! ADV200 is a simple concept: it is essentially Gen 3 OU before Pokémon Fire Red and Leaf Green were released. As you may or may not know, Gen 3 is the only generation of Pokemon games where you cannot transfer Pokemon from the previous generation to. This, of course, means that the only Pokemon that you are able to use in this format are those that can be caught in the Hoenn region (Ruby and Sapphire). How will Gen 3 be without Suicune, Gengar, Tyranitar and many other big faces of the normal Gen 3 OU metagame? Let's find out!

This will be a best of 3 tournament.
Games to be played on Pokemon Showdown! or smogtours.

Yeah so I think Lavos isn't interested in playing cause he never showed or attempted to reschedule. I really wanted to play in this tour so I'm still open to sub or reschedule. Give me Asta next round so I can play :P

Unfortunately, due to a lack of player activity, I have had to cancel this tournament. I apologise to everyone that wanted to play.

However, if you still want to play ADV200, discuss it and watch it develop, a) it is on the ladder for this month and b) I could set up a Discord server where we would build, discuss and have battles in ADV200 with each other. Let me know either in this thread, on my wall/in my PMs or PM me on Discord as Diophantine#1789.

DKM will be tagging everyone that showed initial interest in this tournament.
