Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire OU - ADV200 Cup [Signups]


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.

Here is a banlist that I once made for a ROA tour night which should be correct. To double check whether your team is legal just do the following:
  1. Use /makegroupchat on PS! (the command no longer requires a certain rank to be used)
  2. Type /tour new gen3ou, elimination
  3. Copy the banlist from here and use it in the grupchat
  4. Join the tournament and try to validate your team
  5. If you wish you can delete the groupchat with /deletegroupchat
I edited the banlist because it has been pointed out to me by pasy_g and was confirmed by Diophantine that Swellow, Solrock and Lunatone can't have Baton Pass in this tier. I should mention here that my banlist is based on the link from the orginal post so if there is an error my banlist will have it too.
