    NU Tournament (Sign-Ups)

    Post by Nasira on Sun May 20, 2012 10:38 am

    NU Tournament
    Hosted by resident bitch troll, Nasira.


    (A special thanks to Kira for finding me this image, as well as allowing me to pretty much copy his tournament layout.)

    Welcome to my NU Tournament. As a lot of you know, I am originally a lower tier player and have recently made the transition to higher tiers in order to battle people on this server on level ground. However, I think it would be interesting to see who could succeed by using the lower tiers where a lot of players will not know what the main threats are in the metagame. I believe it helps a battler with their favorite tier by expanding their horizon and gaining an understanding of how more Pokemon can be used.

    I will be provide some (not too much) assistance to people who are clueless about the NU metagame by listing some of the most effective Offensive and Defensive threats.

    Defensive:

    Tangela: Equipped with Eviolite, Tangela becomes immensely physically bulky, checking a lot of the metagame by itself. Leech Seed and Regenerator keep Tangela healthy making it very difficult to take down.

    Alomomola: The Pokemon in NU capable of passing the biggest wishes, and basically resembles a Physical Blissey/Chansey.

    Probnopass: This Pokemon is only hindered by its awful typing which gives it weakness to the common Fighting and Ground type moves. If you can get past that, you will realise how good this Pokemon really is with it's massive Defensive stats.

    Hypno: Hypno is surprisingly difficult to take down, and is one of the best Special Walls I have come across, thanks to Wish, Seismic Toss and a status move of your choice. Definitely worth looking into.

    Offensive:

    Braviary: - Braviary does not need much explaining. He works similar to Staraptor does higher up, normally running the set of Brave Bird, Return, Superpower and U-turn with a Scarf, but can do serious damage to a lot of teams.

    Sawk: - Sawk can destroy a lot of walls with it's powerful STAB move in Close Combat. Normally equipped with a Choice Scarf 'cause it's speed isn't that great.

    Rotom-S: - Also normally a Scarf user. While people laugh at it's unfortunate Flying type coupled with it's Levitate ability, it destroys their team. Be careful when dealing with this threat.

    Gorebyss: - As specified in the rules, Shell Smash and Baton Pass isn't allowed. However, Gorebyss can cause plenty of damage itself with just Shell Smash.

    General Rules:

    - Don't complain about hax. I will personally make sure people follow this rule. No flaming either.
    - You need a Treehouse forum account to participate in this tournament. (Post "in" in this thread to register in the tour.)
    - There will be 8-16 participants. (Depends on how many people sign up.)
    - You need to use your forum nickname during battling on Pokemon Online.
    - All matches are to be played at the Treehouse server.
    - The winner of the match is to send battle logs to the tournament host or tournament directors.

    Rules:

    - All Pokemon classified as Uber by Smogon's tier lists are banned.
    - Sleep Clause (Once you put an opponent to Sleep, you can't put another Pokemon to sleep.)
    - Species Clause (You can't use 2 Gyarados on the same team, for example.)
    - Wifi Battle Clause (Team preview must be enabled.)
    - Self-KO Clause (Players cannot use moves like Selfdestruct or Explosion that cause a tie.)
    - Evasion Clause (Evasion moves such as Double Team are banned.)
    - Soul Dew Clause (Item Soul Dew is banned.)
    - OHKO Clause (Moves like Horn Drill and Sheer Cold are banned.)
    - Smash Pass is NOT allowed. (Using the combination of Shell Smash and Baton Pass is not allowed. Using this combination will result in an automatic loss.)

    If you have any questions, PM me on here or ask me on the server.

    Thanks, Nasira

    I'm in. I've never played NU before, but I'll do my best.

    (On an unrelated note, it's about time I joined the forum.)

    For the sake of getting this started, if nobody else joins I will use a generator to decide the match ups including Rick. Unless Rick now has enough time to participate, the person matched up against Rick will automatically progress to the next round.
