Supposedly the Therian forms (sans Tornadus) and Kyurem-B are OU.

I only banned Therian Tornadus and Genie Thundurus.

I've banned Kyurem-B because base 170 Attack STAB Outrage. Kyurem-B has no hard counters at all. Hidden Power Fire deals with most Steel types in OU, CB Fusion Bolt is a 2HKO on Skarmory, Ice Beam deals with the best physical walls in OU, it gets Roost for recovery, Earth Power deals with Magnezone who resists it's STABs... basically, unless and until you know what set it's running, there is no such thing as a safe switch-in, and it sort of over-centralizes the metagame to have to run a counter for it or revenge-kill it.

However, if 4/8 of you agree that Kyurem-B should be OU, I'll allow it. It's not much of an issue for me personally, I just feel like base 170 STAB Outrage is too easily abused, especially with Magnezone to trap-kill Steel types that'd resist it.

Heads up: Landorus Genie form has been banned today, so it has been added to the list of banned Pokemon for this tournament. Muhed and I are doing our battles tomorrow night, so contact your battle partner and setup times!

I'm GMT too, so that's a good start.

Best chance of getting me is going to be either Thursday night this week after 9pm, or Friday evening after 7pm. Unfortunately I've got training on all nights this week, along with team sports tonight and tomorrow. Is that going to be any good for you?

I'm not sure about Thursday but Friday ought to be fine for me! However I don't think that the 72 hour limit will reach that far!

72 hours is more of a guideline to be honest. I'm not gonna kick anyone out if they need another day or so.

I lost 2-1

would've been one hell of an upset if I didn't choke in the third match

EDIT:  I will post a Warstory.  We had two really good matches, and I'll include the third one for completion because I can make a Peyton Manning reference.

Man Muhed, those were some really good matches. You're still better than the majority of people that play OU now, and that's saying something. Great team, good games.
