PU Mashup Tour

Welcome to another (third?) edition of a PU+OMs mashup tournament, featuring a different combination of your favourite PU banlist and a non-PU metagame ruleset each round.

Rounds 1-5 will follow this list of mashups in increasing round order: PU Almost Any Ability, PU Monotype, PU Mix and Mega, PU Doubles, PU STABmons. If enough people sign up for more rounds, a bo5 of all of the previous mashups will be played in the final round.​


Specific Rules
  • Each mashup will function the same way: playing under the non-PU metagame's ruleset (format, clauses, move/item/combination bans), but with the PU banlist enforced. For example, in PU STABmons I can't use Silvally as it's banned by STABmons, and I can't use Kyurem as it's not usable in PU. This includes abilities like Drizzle or Snow Warning and moves like Aurora Veil.
  • The matches will be played in the format of their respective metagame. PU Monotype will be played in the SwSh Monotype format, etc.
  • All matches are bo3 in the respective metagame. A bo5 of all of the previous mashups will be played in the final round.
  • Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown, that is, main or smogtours. Playing on OM side servers will lead to your match being invalidated and force a replay or a coinflip.
  • You have to post replays. You probably won't use the teams like, ever after your game so..
  • Single elimination.
  • Have fun! :]

General Tournament Rules
  • Identity: I expect many battles to be completed under alts. This can be bad for tournament security, and thus I will make this clear: If I hear any whispers of identity theft (battling as someone you are not) or proxy battling (helping someone else battle through pm) I will not be pleased and I will take severe actions.
  • Scouting: Next, I do not want to hear anything about counterteaming, at all. Do not complain about it. I also don't want to hear about any blatant scouting. There is a difference between "[user] is known for using stall" and "let me follow [user] around all day to watch all his battles since I am his opponent". I expect a lot of the former and none of the latter. I give permission to all battlers to ask any person spectating their battle to leave if they do not want them watching. Everyone will have access to your replays from earlier rounds though.
  • Timer Clause: As for taking long between moves, if your opponent asks you to hurry up, please oblige. If you are doing a damage calc for a key turn that is one thing, but prolonging every move is suspicious and annoying. Don't do it. Furthermore, Battle Timeout is a rule for a reason. If you run out of time, you lose, simple as that. It does not matter what your opponent says. Do not battle if you think you will have to leave mid battle, and instead reschedule for a better time.
  • Disconnections: Finally, in the case of a disconnect, the decision is in the hands of the player who did not disconnect. The options are: redo the battle move for move, redo the battle with the same teams but different moves, or redo the battle with completely different teams. If the battle was without a doubt over, they may also take the win. Any suspicion that a disconnect was committed on purpose to redo a match may be appealed to me, and if I feel this happened there will be severe consequences, don't do it.
