After a two-year break, the very popular and highly requested Super Staff Bros seasonal ladder has returned to Pokémon Showdown! But maybe you haven't heard of this ladder; two years is a long time on PS after all. There is no reason to worry though; this article aims to not only cover the basics of Super Staff Bros Brawl but also go over each and every set in the format!

What is Super Staff Bros?

Super Staff Bros is a seasonal ladder format featuring random teams made up of Pokémon created by the staff members of Pokémon Showdown. But these aren't your standard everyday Pokémon; these Pokémon have custom abilities, moves, and even items that do not exist in standard formats! From custom Z-Moves to randomly transforming into Missingno. and even re-rolling your entire team in the middle of the match, these custom moves, abilities, and items have a wide variety of crazy functions that are sure to keep you on your toes. In addition to their custom attributes, these staffmons are named after the PS staff member they represent and post witty messages on their staff member's behalf when they switch in, switch out, or are KOed. The limitations on Mega Evolutions and Z-Moves have been lifted as well! Each Pokémon may use one Z-Move per battle, and there is no limit to how many Mega Evolutions a side may use. Other than these changes, it's just a normal Pokémon battle; the first trainer to KO their opponent's team wins!

There are 120 different Pokémon representing global staff members of all levels, and I'm sure you're excited to learn about each of their strengths and weaknesses. So without further delay, I give to you The Super Staff Bros Brawl Roster!
