Hi UG,

RedDeath previously brought you an OU tournament which was extremely successful so now it's time for a follow up. This time though, it's UU.

Copied from RedDeath's OP (ly)

SIGN UP HERE


We'll be playing on this site:

http://play.pokemonshowdown.com/

I would recommend taking a look and getting used to battling and teambuilding. As you'll notice, there are different "tiers," like OU (overused), UU (underused), Ubers, etc. These basically just dictate which pokemon you can and can't use in a particular "weight class" so to say. This tournament will be an UU tournament, meaning you can use every pokemon in UU and in any tier lower than UU. As we host more tournaments we'll throw in some more variety, and maybe even host an Ubers tourney for those of you who like op pokemon.

UU is the tier below OU meaning you can still use most 'mons!

Signups will close when we get 32 or on Monday 4th May at 20:00 Pacific time (GMT-11:00). We might not have to wait that long if it fills up quickly.

General rules for the tournament:

It's a double elimination tournament - you'll get two chances to win.
UU teams only - only use pokemon from UU and lower tiers
You don't have to stick with the same team throughout the tournament.
You are allowed to watch any match.


Please sign up below with your UG name and your Challonge nickname (it takes 1 min to sign up)

FAQ

But Tanglewoodguit, I don't know anything about Pokemon!
Who cares? It's just a bit of fun. Just pick some stuff and enjoy!

But Tanglewoodguit, I want to use Mewtwo!
Too bad, this is UU. UU is a fantastic tier with great balance.

Where can I find out more info about UU?

To be fair it took us like a week or so to schedule a lot of fights last time

Also, my beatings from last time make me unsure about if I wanna sign up again.

You're that busy you can't spend 10 mins doing a battle every day or so?

Not so much that, but actually building a passable UU team.
