Tournament USUM UU Top Down Knock Down Tournament (Round 4: post 159)

Previous version hosted by Amaroq | Hosted by A Cake Wearing A Hat | Approved by Kink | Banner by Chloe

Top Down Knock Down is a tournament in which the top 6 most used Pokemon in each round are banned from all following rounds of the tournament. This means that the tournament matches will start in standard UU but will slowly evolve into something far different and far more unique as the tournament progresses. This is going to be an interesting tournament, so hold on for the ride!

Specific Rules:
  • This tournament will be best-of-one, single elimination, and played in the [Gen 7] UU format (for now, anyway).
  • The Pokemon allowed in this tournament, tiering wise, will lock in place as soon as Round 1 is posted. In other words, any and all of the main tier's bans, suspects, and tier shifts are ignored for the duration of this tournament. If a Pokemon that is still allowed in the tournament ceases to be allowed in UU proper, then tournament games for any affected rounds will be played in [Gen 7] OU. This means Bisharp is not allowed.
  • You absolutely must submit the replay of your battle in your victory post so I can gather statistics.
  • At the end of each round, usage statistics for the tournament games will be posted, and the top six most used Pokemon in each round will be banned from all further rounds.
  • If there are still any questions, don't hesitate to PM me!
General Rules:
  • 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.
  • Timer Clause: If a player exhausts the timer, he/she loses.
  • Endless Battle Clause: Any moveset on any Pokemon that is capable of intentionally causing an endless battle is banned from competitive play.
