Welcome to the first unofficial tour for Gen 8 UU! This tour is entirely no longer speculative so will help reflect what the tier will eventually look like and you can use it as a good starting point to spark some more discussion in the Speculation Thread as this tour advances. The Pokemon at your discretion will be based on the current usage stats at our disposal with a few additional bans that we believe would be too much for our metagame.

This tour will be played on Gen 8 OU with the following Pokemon BANNED:

Zacian,
Zamazenta,
Eternatus,
Excadrill,
Darm-G,
Dragapult,
Corviknight,
Ditto,
Ferrothorn,
Gyarados,
Rotom-W, :Rotom-Heat: Rotom-H,
Toxapex,
Aegislash,
Hydreigon,
Clefable,
Grimmsnarl,
Corsola-G,
Tyranitar,
Hatterene,
Cinderace,
Hawlucha,
Toxtricity,
Barraskewda,
Conkeldurr,
Seismitoad,
Mandibuzz,
Dugtrio,
Pelipper,
Bisharp,
Mimikyu, :Dracozolt: Dracozolt,
Dracovish,
Togekiss

Here is a list of the stats also, do not use anything in the OU cutoff. Stats

You are NOT allowed to use any of these Pokemon in your games and if you do then you will be disqualified. Aside from this everything else is legal including abilities such as Drought and Drizzle for example. All OU Clauses will remain abided too for the remainder of this tour, any changes to this will be brought to your attention.

My co-host and myself will be paying close attention to this tour, so any unhealthy or broken elements that present themselves will be banned for future rounds of this tour.

Tour Rules:

  • This tour will be played on Sword and Shield Gen 8 OU with the above banlist.
  • Single elimination format.
  • This is a Best of Three Tournament. You may switch teams between games.
  • Any changes regarding the banlist will not be implemented until the following round.
  • Post your Replays. This is for two reasons. One, it allows the community to see what a SwSh UU metagame might look like. Two, us hosts will be paying attention to these games to see if there are any unhealthy aspects that need to be addressed. We cannot do this if you hide the replays. If you do not have proof of your games your match will be coin flipped. So please remember to post them!
Standard Rules and Clauses:

  • 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.
  • Timer Clause: If a player exhausts the timer, he/she loses.
