2020 BSS Tournament Circuit
(standings spreadsheet and banner coming soon)

In 2020, the BSS circuit continues as we shift our focus over to the new generation. The circuit will consist of 4 tournaments, and will end with an Invitational that consists of the top 12 performing players in the circuit. The 2020 Invitational Champion gets a golden ribbon
on their profile! One major change we will be making from past year circuits is that cartridge performance will no longer affect your placement in the circuit, and most of the tournaments have now gone from being single elimination to double elimination.

BATTLE STADIUM SINGLES OFFICIAL TOURNAMENTS

INVITATIONAL QUALIFICATIONS

  • Player rankings will be determined using CP (Circuit Points). The top 12 players with CP will qualify for the Invitational, with the top 4 getting a round 1 bye.​
  • The circuit has a BFL (Best Finish Limit) of 3. Therefore, only your top 3 performances will count towards your ranking. In other words, having one bad tournament does not negatively impact you directly.​
  • Point structure:​
    • Players will earn the amount of CP equivalent to the last round that they won in before getting eliminated, not including activity wins. For example, if you get eliminated in round 6 of a tournament and you won in round 5, you will earn 5 CP.​
    • Winning the finals of a tournament will earn you 1 extra CP. For example, if you win a tournament that spans 11 rounds, you will earn 12 CP.​
    • Ladder Tournament qualifiers will earn 4 CP, and 2 CP per win in playoffs. Finals bonus does not apply in Ladder Tournaments.​

OTHER MAJOR TOURNAMENTS

  • March 9: Battle Stadium Premier League V
    • Community-wide team tournament where managers draft players, featuring past gens and doubles.

Due to the releases of Isle of Armor and Crowned Tundra expansions, and the 100+ Pokemon species each pack adds to the game, there may be some changes to the starting dates of Ladder Tournament and Masters.

To put it simply, the tournaments will begin as the expansion packs are released, to prevent drastic metagame changes from happening in the middle of the tournaments.
