Welcome to the Ubers UU Kickoff! This will be a single elimination tournament in the Ubers UU format, to celebrate the format's addition as an Unofficial Metagame on Smogon! From experienced players from its roots to Smogon folk curious about the format and everybody in between, this tournament is for you! This will be a single elimination best of three tournament held in the Ubers UU format on Pokemon Showdown. All replays must be posted to the round's thread for a win to count, and each round will take one week.

Here are some useful Ubers UU resources:
- Sample Teams
- Viability Rankings
- Speed Tiers

Here are some Smogon tournament resources:
- Tournament Rules
- Scheduling Guidance
- Smogtours [will automatically save your replays!] and Smogtours server information (you may also play on the main Pokemon Showdown server)

Standard Rules and Clauses
  • SV Ubers UU Banlist: Found here, Pokémon in the "Banned by Usage" and "Banned by the community" categories are not allowed to be used. If a Pokémon is added to either category mid-round, they will be allowed until the start of the next round.
  • 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.
  • Team Preview: Players must turn on the Team Preview feature where players can view the opposing team's Pokémon and choose their lead Pokémon.
  • Timer Clause: If a player exhausts the timer, he/she loses.
  • Endless Battle Clause: Any moveset on any Pokémon that is capable of intentionally causing an endless battle is banned from competitive play. Check this thread for more information.
  • Baton Pass Clause: The move Baton Pass is banned outright.

About Activity Decisions

Activity Decisions / Coin Flips: In the event that there is an uncompleted match at the deadline, it will be coin flipped unless one or both of the players involved in the match specifically request an activity win and explain sufficiently why they deserve to win over their opponent. Attempting to schedule a battle is required in order to receive the win by activity. To make it clear that you are requesting an activity win when you post, you must open your post with "Activity Win Request" in bold.

For example, if you believe your opponent is making an unfair request and that they don't deserve the activity win over you, you can either make your own request or quote their post and explain why they don't deserve it. You should try to make your activity win request posts at least 24 hours before the deadline to give your opponent a reasonable opportunity to contest it with their own activity win request.

Host discretion will be applied for all unplayed games. This means that an activity win will not be automatically granted if you post, and a lack of post does not automatically result in a coinflip.

Calling ACT on lotiasite, I contacted on Sunday and have gotten no response. I can't really play on the weekend because of the holidays and they've been on smogon multiple times since I messaged.
