Gouken question

just noob question…umm is gouken not allowed on tourneys like seth??

What makes you think Seth is not allowed on tourneys? And people can play Gouken at tournaments…

In console tournaments, depending on the rules, you can play console characters (including seth).
I even remember poongko switching from ryu to seth in a tournament.

Certain American ladders, such as MLG Gamebattles if I remember correctly, have banned both Gouken and Seth. However, most offline tourneys, if not all them, will let you play any of the SF4 characters with no penalty.

Any tourney that bans them is not worth attending.

ooh ok it just depends on the tourney

this. Why the hell would mlg ban gouken and seth? MLG should obviously not be doing fighting games.
