"Ubers sucks lol !" - Finals [NO WINNER]

It's the general default view of the regular tournaments player who is uncomfortable with how different Ubers is from other core metagames, and possibly the past record of certain individuals/groups/tournaments (rip). So this is an USM Ubers tournament aimed to just be fun, so try not to mess it up with robots from your garage or the angels on your shoulders whispering to you.

Tournament Rules:
  • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
  • Standard SM Ubers.
  • Best-of-three, single elimination.
  • Battles should take place on the Smogtours server.
  • SM cartridge win conditions are in place; there are no ties.
Battle Clauses:
  • Evasion Clause
  • OHKO Clause
  • Sleep Clause
  • Species Clause
  • Timed Battle
  • Team Preview
Special Rules:
  • Liar's Rule: Lie your way to victory! In this tournament, you and your opponent will take turns telling each other what you will do every turn. Every player gets two lies to use for the entire match (three lies from top 12 and onward, which is changed from signups due to the low turnout), so you must think strategically about when the most opportune time is to burn your lie, and what you should lie about. Put yourself in a position to win! (mostly copied from jake's 2014 Liar's Rule II)
  • No Johns: The deadlines will only be 3 days long, no extensions except under Very Special Circumstances(and nothing more than 24 hours at that).
- Every player must declare what move they will be doing in that turn.
- You get 2 lies for the whole game.(three lies from top 12 and onward)
- Whoever is first in the matchup has to declare their lead during team preview first.
- Whoever is second in the matchup has to declare their move in turn 1 first.
- Players go on alternating until the game is over.

For example, say Sweep is playing Nayrz. The matchup is listed as "Nayrz vs Sweep". Nayrz must tell Sweep his lead first, then Sweep will tell Nayrz his lead. After both leads are sent out, Sweep will tell Nayrz which move he will make that turn (if he switches, he will say which Pokemon he is switching to), and Nayrz will follow suit. Turn two, Nayrz will tell Sweep what move he will make, followed by Sweep telling Nayrz, and so on.

Unrevealed formes, like Arceus, have to be referred to specifically by their forme for the first time.

Z-Moves have to be referred to specifically or it counts as a lie.

Changing form, like Mega Evolving or Ultra Bursting, are not counted separately. So if Nayrz said "Ultra and SD" with his Dusk Mane, and if he does anything except Ultra and SD, it counts as a single lie.

- Ultra and SD: truth

- Ultra and not SD: 1 lie

- Not Ultra and SD: 1 lie

- Not Ultra and not SD(includes switching): 1 lie
Deadline: 28 November

If you didn't notice yet, every banner is linked to provide context for the image. These are, I believe, some the factors that result in Ubers not being so popular among the regular tours crowd (e.g. "AG exists so Ubers has no purpose", but I'm not blaming AG). How much these things actually matter is up to the individual to decide, I just request people to not be sheep and think for self.

There were some more that I wanted to refer, like "lol matchup" which I attribute to USM itself and not something unique to Ubers. Another point is the stag clan, which is also not the fault of Ubers that some idiots picked this tier to cause trouble in. We've worked hard to expose as many people as we can and people shouldn't hold it against the tier either as these people don't make up the majority of the community.

Personally, I wanted to have Double Kick Terrak as banner in finals, but decided against it in the end because TTG is still clean Until Proven Otherwise so that wouldn't be in good taste. Still, enjoy the replay :D
