SPECIFIC RULES
  • This is a standard USUM Doubles OU tournament
  • This tournament will be Double Elimination
  • Rounds will be Best of Three. You may switch teams in between battles of the same set.
  • Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown!
  • To encourage the development of the metagame, and so that everyone is on an even playing field, all matches must have replays recorded. If neither player posts replays of the match, both players will suffer an automatic game loss. (If you were in losers' when you played, you are both out. If you were in winners', the winner is in losers' and the loser is out.)
  • If you are found signing up under more than one alt, you will be banned from circuit events for life.
  • Activity calls will be made by me, potentially with neutral assistance from a TD. Coin flips will be done on PS!
  • In the event that something is added to or removed from the Doubles OU metagame in the middle of a round, that change will be in effect starting the next round. Doubles Ubers is available as a challenge option if something is banned mid-round.
Standard Rules and Clauses
  • Species Clause: A player cannot have two Pokemon with the same PokeDex number on his team.
  • Evasion Clause: The moves Double Team and Minimize are banned. (No other evasion boosting things 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.
  • HypnoGravity Clause: The move Gravity is banned with all moves that can induce Sleep. I am not 100% sure if this is fully implemented on Pokemon Showdown!, so if it is not and you are found to be using it you will be disqualified and banned from future Circuit events.
  • Uber Clause: Anything that appears on Doubles OU' banlist is banned. This is the banlist for Doubles OU:
  • Mewtwo

  • Ho-oh

  • Groudon
  • Rayquaza

Let me know if anything looks incorrect and I'll do my best to fix it.

If you missed signups, feel free to post "in as sub" and I will add you to the sub list.

e: I will be doing the first activity sweep and make substitutions for inactive players on Thursday night. If you made it into the tournament, make sure you schedule your game by then! Scheduling via VM and posting in this thread are both good ways to ensure you aren't removed.

The deadline for this round is Monday, January 22, at 11:59 PM EST.

Good luck to everyone!

Sorry I'm new but can anyone explain me what is a sub and why am I in it?
If signups exceed 128 people but don't reach a number big enough to use a 256-person bracket, not everyone is able to immediately join the tournament. The first 5/8 of the bracket (in this case, 80 people) is filled with the first 80 people to sign up, then the remaining 48 slots were filled using seeds from last year's circuit and randomizing the rest. If you didn't make it into the tournament at first, keep paying attention because usually a lot of people get subbed out round 1 for inactivity.

Thank you but does that mean I may not get to play?
