The NU Throwdown Round 1

Supe

would you suck the poison out
Welcome to the NU Throwdown!
*Approved by Jimbo*


Due to wifi server issues today, the deadline for this round has been extended to Sunday, December 13th at 11:59pm Pacific Standard Time (GMT -8)


RULES

Single Elimination

HG/SS moves are allowed


No Hacks
- Not even legit hacks. The point of wifi tourneys is to encourage trading in the wifi forum!

Sleep Clause - You may only put one of your opponent's pokemon to sleep at a time. If your opponent used Rest or if Effect Spore causes sleep, that does not count.

Species Clause - No 2+ of the same Pokemon per team. Example: 2 Medichams are on your team.

Hax Items Clause - The items Bright Powder, Focus Band, Quick Claw, King's Rock, Razor Fang, Scope Lens, and Razor Claw are banned.

Evasion Clause - The moves Double Team and Minimize are banned.

OHKO Clause
- The moves Horn Drill, Sheer Cold, Guillotine, and Fissure are banned.

Self KO Clause
- You cannot use Selfdestruct, Explosion, or Destiny Bond if you are down to your last Pokemon.

Oh what are the chances of this ?

September vs Geren

I guess we are in for a fun battle :D I'll catch geren on MSN next time he's on.
 
awesome, ill go find shawk when i have time later on today. yet again, great tournament supe glad we finally got the chance to do this.
 

Supe

would you suck the poison out
Are you still accepting prize donations?
Sure, but you will be responsible for contacting the winner(s) and distributing your prize yourself.

Will we be doing predictions?
You can if you want. I'm actually surprised no one has posted any yet.

What's the ruling for when matches don't get completed? Same as always?
Same as always. If a match doesn't get done, the win will go to the person who showed more activity and effort. If neither person posts or contacts me, I'll just flip a coin.

Oh what are the chances of this ?

September vs Geren

I guess we are in for a fun battle :D I'll catch geren on MSN next time he's on.

Just saying I'll do my predictions later...but I have to stress one prediction.

Coopowitz vs. DEZTROYA

He and I fought numerous times with our NU teams last night, prior to the tournament, and he inspired me to make one change in my team, and his team is very, very good.

If it works, it's very good. If it doesn't work, it fails.

:naughty:

I beat Geren 1-0 in a pretty epic match, well played Geren :D

Edit - I would like to add some prizes. Any 3 pokemon from this post.
 
Confirming that I lost and that it was a really funny match :D GG!

Also, I want to donate a prize. Hopefully a shiny emerald I'm breeding :D
 
Utterly pointless predictions are here, Blakblastoise!

Itsuki
vs Diesel - Not sure, going with the battler formerly known as Mr.Darkrai.
Tyler422 vs Hamstern - I think Hamstern plays NU constantly
Deschain vs Felileikaboss - Would've thought Deschain would win but you know.
FlamingKid vs Syberia - Syberia wins every tier
yourubermother vs Rename Card - expected
Yellowfire7 vs Lexite - I secretly believe Lexite is Syberia's alt (haha just kidding =P)
DEZTROYA vs Coopowitz - redistributables forever
Shawk vs DragonFE - guess
Alakapimp vs Bojan - pimpslapped
for54years vs Supe - he's running the tournament so he better win =P
Trufflehunter25 vs Dan Dan - trufflehunter's going to lose his DS
September vs Geren - would've been a toss up for me
Lunk63 vs Negator - Negator can win every tier as well
Equinox vs BlakBlastoise - Blak only plays OU
Ditto vs Eiganjo - Ditto transforms to fit all situations (haha pun is not funny)
TDS vs _Apocalypse_ - guess
