Freeze Clause.
Sleep Clause.

Will these exist during the next tournament?

Are they built into metallic stadium like they are to chromatic?

*very important*: Does metallic stadium have the original distribution (1-7 rounds, evenly) or the same as the older stadium (1-3 rounds, evenly)? That's a *big* deal...

After all, both status modifiers aren't as stupid as they used to be...

Seems like this is the wrong forum...

Yea, you're right. Park was probably the wrong call on this one.

Hmmm, granted I still know squat about GS, I still think its necessary for clauses.

Especially if they keep the 3 on 3 format.

From what I recall reading in a post at Pokémon Forever's message board, the Sleep and Freeze clauses were in effect for a Stadium 2 tournament in Japan, so I'd say they remain for PokéSta2.


Also, another clause is added: the Item Clause. You may let your Pokémon items, but you may not have more than one of an item on your team. Each Pokémon must hold a different item.


Here's a link to Meowth346's post...

Don't flip when you see the "new Petite Cup" rule. There's no Petite Cup in G/S Stadium, and that rule applies to the new Little Cup, for level 5 or lower Pokémon.

Noooo!!! No more gay clauses! I'm fed up with having to deal with having to battle differently when switching between GB and Stadium! They better not if they know what's good for them... I will feel somewhat better of you can turn those gay clauses off.

Agreed. I want to use my sleep-inducing Vileplume on stadium too!

Ah fuck! That bites dick big time! How the hell am I supposed to use my new fuck'n Exeggutor?

Nintendo is a bitch when it comes to this, what is the fuck'n point of having sleep clause if you attack after you wake up? Fuck the fuck'n fuckers.

I wouldn't complain as much about the sleep clause if you don't attack the turn you wake up. But a built in freeze clause (like stadium) is fine for me. But if you get disqualified for something out of your control (such as freezing a poke, your opponent switches to say dragonite, what move are you going to use? tackle?)

Eh, sleep clause is still in effect, yes. But remember, unlike in the original Stadium, Sleep is normal length too. :P

It is? I didn't do exhaustive testing, but if sleep was 1-7 lost turns, then I think I would have seen something above 3 (I didn't).

Granted I only tried it 10 times, but seriously, the odds are less than 1/1000!

Note when you count: the constant measurement is "turns lost". On older cartridges, three turns lost would be:

It's fast asleep!
It's fast asleep!
It woke up!

Now it's:

It's fast asleep!
It's fast asleep!
It's fast asleep!
It woke up and did some move!

Note that these result from the same number: notably, the last lost round used to be "woke up", but now it looks identical so the sleep inducer doesn't know when the guy will wake up. Either way, that's only "asleep" for three rounds.
