"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Then, God created humankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them, male and female he created them.
To differentiate them, He created the colors, 8 colors for 8 Nations. Afterwards, God got bored as shit and left the World for a better place.

Without God, the 8 Nations started to skin themselves alive. To put an end to this madness, the 8 Nations decided to institute the Rainbow League.
By fighting in the Rainbow League, the Nations would decide which Nation would be the strongest, with (almost) no bloodshed. For this, each Nation would need to select a Champion, and send him to the Rainbow League, where he would fight the other Champions.
The winner of the Rainbow League is the Rainbow Champion, and since God left this world, he would be considered by all the Nations, as the one and only true God."

Sega Genesis 1.0 beta



In the last edition, Knuckstrike from the Pink Ozone came out winner and was crowned Champion of the Rainbow League in an intense fight against Syncrasy from the Brown Field, who became a traitor to his own Nation in finals.
For almost three years, everything seemed right and fair, world finally found peace...
However, one day, the ruler of the Color Nations disappeared, leaving behind him an empty alumnus'd throne awaiting for its next owner.
So fight, fight for your color, fight for your Nation, fight for your family, your friends, your Pikachu, fight for those who can't fight themselves, for no one is going to call your motive into question once you'll become the one and only RAINBOW CHAMPION.



  • This is a SM OU standard tournament.
  • Rounds will be best of one and playoffs best of three.
  • I'll be really strict on the activity, and sub out anybody inactive really fast, so if you think that you can idle the first rounds, you're dead wrong. Each round will last either 5 or 7 days, and I'm not planning to ever delay any round so that's onto you to get your battle done.
  • SAVE THE REPLAYS.
  • Every player will be randomly given a color, and will have to use pokemons belonging to this color. HERE is the color pokedex.
  • You can use a Mega Evolution, regardless of its color, as long as the normal form belongs to your color. For instance, if you belong to the Red Nation and use Charizard, then you don't break any rule by playing Charizard-X.
  • If you're caught using Pokemon of another color, you instantly lose the battle.
  • You HAVE TO have a "mascot". Thats is to say a Pokémon belonging to your color that you will keep the whole tournament. For instance, Ash is a player of the Yellow nation and chose Pikachu as mascot. Thus, he'll have to play Pikachu at every game ! *You can break this rule if you betray your Nation in the Finals*
  • General Tournament Guidelines apply (http://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/tournament-rules-and-general-guidelines.3486049/).
Standard Rules and Clauses:

  • Species Clause: A player cannot have two Pokemon with the same PokeDex number on his team.
  • Sleep Clause: You cannot inflict sleep upon more than one member of the opposing team.
  • Evasion Clause: The moves Double Team and Minimize are banned.
  • OHKO Clause: The moves Horn Drill, Guillotine, Sheer Cold, and Fissure are banned.
  • Endless Battle Clause: Anything capable of intentionally creating an endless battle is banned.


Take courage, be brave, your only limit is the rng.

Hi I'm FIREEEE
Aishia Can you clarify on the rules for me?

Do you have to mention the uber during scheduling so players can prepare for it, or do you just bring it the day of?
The uber pokemon you unban, can both players use it, or just yourself? Also, do you have to announce in advance when you're going to bring it in a battle, or do you just use it unannounced?

Hi I'm FIREEEE
1-] I guess you'll have to mention it during scheduling so the matchup can be less difficult for both players.
2-] Both players can use it.
3-] You don't really have to announce it, that's why you'll challenge in SM Ubers but if you and your opponent agree to announcent beforehand that'd be fine too!
YES, announce it when you're gonna bring it.

Oh and almost forgot, please POST REPLAYS.:blobwizard:
Alright, and when you announce your pick, is that the game your opponent also has to use it or can they use your pick at some other stage

Let's clarify a few things regarding the Ubers rule, remember this rule isn't mandatory so if both players decide not following it that's okay.

  • Each player will have the opportunity to unban 1 Uber Pokémon that belongs to their nation color ONLY in one game NOT per game.
  • You'll have to challenge in SM Ubers, obviously.
  • Each player will have to mention which Ubers will they pick during scheduling so the matchup can be less difficult for both players.
  • Players will have to announce when they're going to bring the Ubers
See this example as reference: :mehowth: picks Marshadow, :jynx: picks Kyurem.


Game 1: :mehowth: tells :jynx: that he's going to bring Marshadow, however :jynx: doesn't want to use her Ubers yet.
Game 2: :jynx: tells :mehowth: that she wants to use Kyurem in this game.
Game 3: No Ubers on this game (obviously).
tl;dr- players can bring their Ubers pick when they want to, as long as they announce it.

Hope everything's clear now, soz guys I posted this thread at midnight last night so I missed a few details, good luck to everyone.
POST REPLAYS!

O so you can't use your opponent's uber?

Edit: Or do you pick the game in which both players can use the uber?

I lost in a fun series, ggs!

Also posting my favourite set that I used in this tour:
@ Alakazite
Ability: Magic Guard
EVs: 120 HP / 252 SpA / 136 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Grass Knot
- Zap Cannon
- Psychic
- Filler (Recover, Protect, HP Ground ... )

This set pretty much beats all of Alakazam's usual checks while still OHKO'ing / 2HKO'ing most other 'mons in the metagame. 136 Speed EV's lets it outspeed everything bar random Scarf / Salac (rip) users.
Grass Knot vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD
: 136.2 - 160.6%
Grass Knot vs. 252 HP / 144 SpD
: 85.2 - 100.4%
Zap Cannon vs. 248 HP / 124+ SpD
: 64.7 - 76.5%
Zap Cannon vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD
: 118.9 - 140.1%
Hidden Power Ground vs. 240 HP / 16 SpD Eviolite
: 58.9 - 69.5%
Hidden Power Ground vs. 252 HP / 176+ SpD
: 63.2 - 74.6%
