Ayup. This is a Gen 8 OU Tournament. As the name suggests, this is.....gen 8 OU. Overused is a Smogon tier hosted on This is a good link to find some good information about the tier if you're new:


  • Standard OU Rules
  • The link sent has clauses, and all of the rules


  • It will be hosted here:
  • If a matchup gets too long, y'all can forfeit and start another one
  • Teams can be switched between battles
  • Matchups are, in fact, randomized


Save your replays

How to sign up

EST (GMT -4)
3 am only (this is random so I'll do what I want)
Double Elimination

After sign ups, I'll read it and see if you guys are cool (double elimination) or cool (single elimination).

The deadline is 9/25/21 GMT to sign up.

When the battle is finished with your opponent, send the replay in the comments of the round of the battle. If I faced Primordial Sea (Who would destroy me) in round 1, and I won, I would post the replay and something else under the round 1 answer.

Good luck kids.

Yo what's the policy for calling act?
@frozen, sure.
@geniusgatik, not sure, everyone has to finish their matchups.
@assault, what
@湿ったマフィン Assault Ποσειδώνας is probably asking what the policy on calling inactivity wins is.
Just curious, but did you hide the Round 1 answer?
@J™ looks like they did, since I can't find it on either page.

Sorry I missed your message. I can battle that same time today (7:30 pm Saturday my time, 8:00 am Sunday your time). Would that work for you or would we need to schedule another time?

Trippy Soup
Unavailable between the hours of 3 PM and 8 PM
Double Elimination

I’ll probably bring an early meta team and lose twice in a row due to stall. Yay! :P

Good Luck, Have Fun

Can you battle on Saturday? I probably won't be available from 2PM to 6PM then, but I'm available for the rest of Saturday otherwise. I can't play tomorrow or on Friday.
I’ll see if I can get on noon Saturday, but if not, I’ll probably be on after 8PM Saturday.
If the site server is still down then, I usually hang out in the CAP Project room on main Showdown! when I go on, so you can find me there if searching my name is too inefficient or whatever. :P
So can you play at noon today?
Are you available sometime tonight?

double elimination

I will be unusually busy for the next 2 months. I will lose this tournament because I have no time to prepare properly, not because I really suck at gen 8 OU.

But your other comment says you want to battle earlier? Did you mean Friday?
I meant, since the weekend is basically the deadline, it would be good to get it in during the week, if possible. But if it can't be helped, the weekend should be fine, too.
I didn't see you on the default server or Smogtours today. Can we try to meet Sunday 2 pm GMT on Smogtours? That's 9 am your time, right?
Whoops, sorry for missing that. Yeah, I should be able to make that.
I'm online right now, on both the default server and smogtours. I'll be available for a couple hours, but the sooner, the better.

The entire purpose of stall is preventing your butt from getting kicked.
