Welcome to the 1v1 Global Cup III, the first tournament of the 2024 1v1 Circuit! Everything you would need to know about the tournament will be listed below. If you have questions, feel free to contact me!​

Tournament Rules:
  • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
  • The banlist for this tournament is the same as the SV 1v1 ladder on the main server of Pokemon Showdown, and can be found by using '/tier 1v1' on that server.
  • Each matchup will be held as a best of five.
  • If metagame changes occur during the middle of a round, they will take effect in the subsequent round.
  • Battles must take place on main server or smogtours.
  • Replays are not required but I encourage posting them for the development of the metagame.
  • Do not make baseless activity posts; get in contact with your opponent and report missed times / scheduling issues only.
How GC Works
Because this format is new to the 1v1 circuit not everyone may be familiar with the format so I've included an example 64 player rundown below. If you have any questions feel free to reach out and ask because it's better to find out now than during the actual tournament.

Round 1: Stage 1 - 2 sets of 32 Bo5 matches (64 unseeded players, subs period) & Stage 2
Round 2: Stage 1 - 2 sets of 16 Bo5 matches (32 unseeded players) & Stage 2
Round 3: Stage 1 - 2 sets of 8 Bo5 matches (16 unseeded players) & Stage 2
Round 4: Stage 1 - 2 sets of 4 Bo5 matches (8 unseeded players) & Stage 2
Semifinals: Stage 1 - 2 sets of 2 Bo5 matches (4 unseeded players) & Stage 2
Finals: Stage 1 - 2 sets of Bo5 matches (2 unseeded players) & Stage 2 (essentially a bo3o5 in finals)
Stage 1 End: Players with 2 match wins go through, and those with 2 losses are eliminated.
Stage 2: Players with a 1-1 record play each other in an Bo5 match to see who progresses (or wins the final).
Each stage is 1 week long and each round is 2 stages equalling 2 weeks long.
Basically you just have to win 2 out of 3 potential games in order to move on to round 2.

If you are given clerica and bea as opponents for the first round and win against one of them but lose against the other, you will go to Week 2. If you win against both of us, you will advance to the next round. If you lose both, you will be eliminated.

Post "in" to sign up!
Signups end at 11:59 PM GMT-5 on January 7th. We will potentially cap signups as we approach the deadline to avoid having substitutes.
