Welcome to the first edition of the ZU Open! ZU, or Zero Used, is the newest official Other Meta and is the unofficial tier below PU. The idea of a new Smogon tier has been entertained since XY, when it was still named FU, and this tier is a continuation of the same format. Following standard tiering, ZU is a competitive equivalent to the tiers above it. And now for the rules:
Tournament Specific Rules:
  • The ZU Open is Single Elimination.
  • Players will play a best of three series of USUM ZU each round. (Matches will be played in the PU format)
  • Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown either the main server or through Smogtours.
  • To encourage the development of the metagame, all replays must be posted. Privately PMing replays is not sufficient.
  • If a certain Pokemon is banned after a round is posted, it will remain unbanned for the remainder of the round. Vice versa, if a Pokemon drops after a round is posted, that Pokemon cannot be used until the following round.
  • Every round, I may choose several games as the Highlight Matches.
  • The winner of this tournament will have their name featured in the ZU Room Banner on Pokemon Showdown
  • Most importantly, have fun!
  • Here are some links to ZU resources:

Standard Clauses:
  • Sleep Clause Mod: Limit one foe put to sleep
  • Species Clause: Limit one of each Pokemon
  • OHKO Clause: OHKO moves are banned
  • Moody Clause: Moody is banned
  • Evasion Moves Clause: Evasion Moves are banned

Won vs blalib in one hell of series. Game 3 ended up being weird but extremely close and the other two games were just good matchups for the winner. Huge shoutouts to 5gen for helping me build the first two teams (even though they didn't end up working the way they were supposed to) and shoutouts to the g3 team for still being undefeated in Open.

This has been an amazing meta to play and I'm looking forward to the post-Stout version!

Just a reminder to those with Round 3 Extensions that tier changes don’t come into effect until you begin playing your Round 4 matches.

HJAD Chloe
Silvally-Ghost is actually PU by usage, so your series is rewinded back to 1-0 in HJAD’s favor. Please try to finish the remainder of the series as soon as you can. An extension can be granted if you need it.
