Specific Rules
  • This is a standard Gen 1 OU Tournament. All matches must be played in Pokemon Showdown's "[Gen 1] OU" format.
  • This tournament will be Double Elimination.
  • All rounds will be First To Two Wins. You may switch teams in between battles of the same set.
  • Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown (or the SmogTours server).
  • Sleep Clause Mod: Limit of one foe put to sleep
  • Freeze Clause Mod: Limit of one foe frozen
  • Species Clause: Limit of one of each Pokémon
  • OHKO Clause: OHKO moves are banned
  • Evasion Moves Clause: Evasion moves are banned
  • HP Percentage Mod: HP is shown in percentages
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.
  • Timer Clause: As for taking too long between moves, if your opponent asks you to hurry up, please oblige. If you are doing a damage calculation 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 doesn't matter what your opponent says. Do not start 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.
Matchup trees will be constructed using the Smogon bracket maker. The RBY resources thread is linked here. Round 1 starts June 19, 2019.
