The No Johns Tournament: DPP OU Edition

john |jän|
noun, verb, johned, johning​

  • A cheap excuse for losing, missing a recovery, being hit by an attack, or any number of unfavorable events in Smash. It is a statement or action that detracts from the validity or quality of a competition (or its implied significance), irrespective of truth.
This tournament will be contested under DPP OU rules. What makes this different from any other tournament is the fact that the deadlines are short. 3 day maximum. No Johns.

Best of ONE.

Tournament 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.
  • 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.
  • Uber Clause: Players may not use any items, moves, abilities, or Pokemon that appear on Smogon's DPP 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. Unlikely in this scenario.
  • Do not join this tournament unless you are extremely active. Deadlines will be very short.

BKC vs luisotte

Deadline is probably not required because I think you beat me to it

thanks for the tour zeb, unofficials were looking pretty dead so I really appreciate you hosting this old but gold format as well as everyone who joined and played. there were some great players and activity shit was minimal (though I'd have liked to have seen laurel-ninjax). also shoutout to marshall's awesome empoleon set and stall killer subcharge lanturn
Glad we got to play in this tour. There was definitely some good players in this tour all around. Hope there’s another tour like this soon
