RBY Tradebacks Tournament

Hosted by Princess Bri


Tradeback: A Pokémon taught a move in a later game and traded back to the earlier game. Most notable in the first generation of Pokémon, where certain Pokémon could learn moves in the second generation which would augment their movepools.

This tournament will be allowing you to use GSC Tradebacks. This means you will have Amnesia Persian, Hypno, etc. making the metagame much more offensive, consequently very different. This tournament will be a test of seeing if you can adjust to the new metagame and play accordingly. For more information on RBY Tradebacks, you can view these two articles describing the more prominent tradebacks and Pokemon that benefit from them. Post in if you wish to be a substitute, I'm sure we'll need them.

  • GSC Tradebacks are allowed.
  • All matches must be played on the Pokemon Online v2 Simulator or Netbattle since they have RBY and a specific option to allow you to build with tradebacks.

I'll be subbing out inactives over the weekend, and you can still sign up to be a sub if you want. Be sure to contact your opponent.
