    Smogon Superstars is a tournament that sees some of Smogon's finest players and Finchinator duke it out in our three most recent OU metagames. All participants in this tournament were handpicked and invited to play.


    A big thank you to SparksBlade for helping me maintain the spreadsheet for this tournament! Participants, please keep in mind that the playoff bracket is double elimination.

    Before we can continue with the bracket, however, we need to determine which of the following three users is going to take up the final two slots in the bracket. Instead of eliminating Finchinator outright flipping a coin I figured the fair approach would be a tiebreaker. Please bo3 each other in Smogon Tour tiers until we have a loser (0-2). The winner of the breaker gets to choose whether they want to play Luigi or p2, while the loser is unfortunately eliminated.

    Without further ado, let this clash of PO titans commence...


    Finchinator vs. ZoroDark
    Finchinator vs. Chill Shadow
    ZoroDark vs. Chill Shadow


    #1 Luigi vs. #16 ZoroDark
    #2 p2 vs. #15 Chill Shadow
    #3 Lavos vs. #14 pokebasket
    #4 praj.pran vs. #13 -Snow
    #5 Floppy vs. #12 Lycans
    #6 Welli0u vs. #11 teal6
    #7 Posho vs. #10 We Three Kings
    #8 FLCL vs. #9 Pohjis


    The deadline for the tiebreak will be Sunday October 8th 11:59 PM GMT +2, while the deadline for this playoff round overall will be Sunday October 15th 11:59 PM GMT +2.
