    Glad you asked, essentially each person is given a number one through six, that tells you what turn your get to pick your pokemon on, if you got 1 you pick first, so then you get to pick any of the OU Gen 5 Pokemon, that are not Legendary, then you wait until your next turn and pick another. Everyone gets two pokemon, but there are no repeats, as soon as you pick a pokemon no one else can pick it.

    By no rain, he means no Drizzle + Swift Swim. Not just no Politoed.

    Yes, I understand what he means by no rain teams. It is a sus restriction.

    ...why? Rain teams are hilariously busted, especially if we're not having things like the lati twins to help.

    Rain teams aren't as busted with all the new terrains out there. Anyway even back as far as gen 4 you could say the same about flinch. Like if Politoed is banned that's not far away from saying Togekiss should be banned.

    I think we should go with each Gen's classic meta rules. If rain teams were banned back in gen 5 then fair enough.

    Righto the, I'll keep it in mind for future reference Sera but this is a quick and dirty tournament. Poll closed 4 hours ago, and it came back with a resounding yes.

    So LEGENDARIES ARE ALLOWED.

    Also its officially 12am EST which means 12 hrs till tournament starts I will be posting preliminary bracket shortly.

    @Striker and @Lungs you fellas in
