Doubles Colonel
  • 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:

Only 1 unfinished match this time!

Yoda2798 given the win over Givrix.
Yoda and Givrix agreed to play on Sunday from 12-4 or from 9 onwards Yoda's time (GMT). at 4:34PM Yoda's time, Givrix says he can play (outside the times they agreed on). When Yoda came back he said that he was unable to play at that time as he had originally suggested, but could play for the rest of the night. The next day, I can only assume that some time before 8:48 PM Yoda's time on Monday, Givrix messaged Yoda on showdown and Yoda was AFK. When he saw the message, Yoda tried to get Givrix's attention but Givrix never responded. As such, the match is called in Yoda's favor.

Try to set specific times for your matches guys, it makes it so much easier for you to connect and get the game done, and gives me a way to make a more clear decision should the game not happen.
