Welcome to the Sum Zero Tournament

In this tournament, participants will be grouped against three other participants to play in a standard Best of 1 ORAS OU singles battle. After each match, the ending score between the two players will be the score awarded to the winner. So, assuming Player-A played against Player-B and won with a score of 3-0, he will be awarded a +3 points while Player-B will be -3. After all three games have been played by the player, the total score of the player will be accumulated and 2 players with the best record from each group proceeds onto Round 3.

In the case of an activity win, the player requesting for it will be awarded a +3 while the opposing party will have a -6 for that game instead.

Players are encouraged to stay active throughout the course of the tournament upon signing up.

  • Replay of games should be provided or have both players agreeing to the score so that the points can be known and then awarded. (PM me the replay if you prefer to do so is acceptable as well)
  • Players are encouraged to complete their games, do not forfeit the game half way through. For the games that were forfeited with a score of lets say 5-3, player A will be awarded 5 points while player B is penalized with a -5.
  • Sleep Clause: A player cannot put two or more different opposing Pokémon to sleep using attacks that induce sleep to opposing Pokémon.
  • Species Clause: A player cannot have two of the same Pokémon on their team. For example, a player cannot have two Koffing on his or her team.
  • Evasion Clause: A player cannot use the moves Double Team or Minimize in their Pokémon's movesets.
  • OHKO Clause: Players cannot use Horn Drill, Guillotine, Sheer Cold, or Fissure in any of their Pokémon's movesets.
  • Team Preview: Players must turn on the Team Preview feature where players can view the opposing team's Pokémon and choose their lead Pokémon.
  • Timer Clause: If a player exhausts the timer, he/she loses.
  • Endless Battle Clause: Any moveset on any pokemon that is capable of intentionally causing an endless battle is banned from competitive play. Check this thread for more informations.
  • Baton Pass Clause: Check this thread.
  • Uber Clause: Players may not use any items, moves, abilities, or Pokemon that appear on Smogon's OU Ban List. If the tiers change or new items, abilities, moves, or Pokemon become available in the middle of a round, the changes will take effect in the following round. There will be an announcement in the relevant round if this occurs.
  • Before participating in this tournament, please take some time to read the following thread: Tournament Rules, Guidelines, and General Information
  • This is a standard ORAS OU tournament.
  • The tournament will be single elimination.

Regarding Activity Decisions

  • Activity Decisions / Coin Flips: In the event that there is an uncompleted match at the deadline, it will be coin flipped unless one or both of the players involved in the match specifically request an activity win and explain sufficiently why they deserve to win over their opponent. Attempting to schedule a battle is required in order to receive the win by activity.
Due to horrible activity in multiple groups and no activity wins were requested, coin flips were carried out to determine who wins and proceeds.
If there are activity wins that I missed out and you should or should not be in Round 2, let me know.

Good luck everyone :]
