ADV Cup Round 3
Lets find out who's the best at the best generation.

Tournament Rules:
  • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
  • Smogon Classic rules can be read here
  • Standard ADV OU
  • Best of three, single elimination.
  • Battles should take place on Pokemon Showdown!
  • Do not make baseless activity posts, get in contact with your opponent and report missed times / scheduling issues only.

About playing on alts: It is entirely allowed to play on an alt other than your own main forum name, though if your opponent wishes to confirm your identity, you must log on to your main alt to show them you are who you claim to be. This is to prevent people from pretending to be who they're not.

About playing on different servers: Tournament matches must be played on the Smogtoursserver. The Main PS! serveris also acceptable if both parties agree to that. Other servers are not sanctioned by the TD team and playing in them might result in your game not counting. Protect yourself from that by playing in Smogtours, where we also have the power to recreate games that end due to DC's.


On scouting opponents: Going through your opponents replays of tournament and ladder games is entirely allowed, as long as a game is public there is nothing preventing you from watching it. An exception to this is abusing powers granted to you by being staff on Smogon or PS! to gain access to information a normal user wouldn't have access to, which is strictly forbidden.

On leaking teams: Divulging private information about someone's planned team to their opponent is never allowed, and will be heavily sanctioned. Requesting that such information be divulged is also grounds for punishment. Keep your scouting to publicly available information and you'll be fine.

Timer Clause / Disconnections

On the Timer: The timer must stay on throughout the whole battle, only being turned off in the case of a player disconnecting, and in that case will only be turned off for 5 minutes (keep in mind that this is a interim solution while we wait on PS! developers). The timer may not be turned off in any other circumstance.

On Timeout losses: A player that loses by having all his time run out loses the game. This is only not the case if the player that received the timeout loss can be verified to have suffered a True Disconnection. Rematches in such cases are not allowed.

On True Disconnection: The TD team has a secret threshold of seconds that your timer must be at or above, from the moment you disconnect, for a timeout loss to be considered a True disconnection. If your game is determined to be a true disconnection if you played on Smogtours and contacted a TD before the room expired your game will be recreated up to the point the disconnect happened. It is the responsibility of the player that disconnected to get a TD into the room before it expires.

Battle Clauses:
  • Evasion Clause
  • OHKO Clause
  • Sleep Clause
  • Species Clause
  • Timed Battle
  • Baton Pass Clause: Smeargle cannot use Ingrain on Baton Pass sets.

a lil late, but I think I have a fair enough case for an extension vs Whitelion, we scheduled to play during the weekend during my mornings when I would be active because I had work in the afternoon both days. I had no indication that he was online or ready to play either day (though the most I did to try to find or contact him was to search for him on Showdown main / Smogtours a few times throughout the couple of hours I was online so I don't think I deserve the hard act win). Bad timing to ask this after the fact I know but I figured its worth a shot since it'd suck to get coinflipped out so soon without even playing 2 whole games in the tour :blobshrug:
If it gets ok'd I can get the games done asap, like Tuesday at the latest

Lord Ninjax Spl4sh i'll be gone for the week after tuesday (might be able to play wednesday but i'll potentially be on spotty airport wifi, and potentially after that but i have no guarantees about my activity) so whoever wins pm me on discord asap after so that we can get it played. if it doesn't get played before then i'll be home monday and next tueday would work as well. so i guess this can be treated as smogon's earliest activity post.

just a heads up

me and hec should get an extension. the guy shows up once at 8:30 despite me being on all day from 2pm - 7pm ON stours. on my main. he decides to vm me at like 9pm (he didn't give me a specific time either) and by that point i couldn't play. he needed an extension in another classic tour as well + i played multiple series that day so i obviously was online and available at optimal times.
New matchup due to new information, TSR gets the activity win over WhiteLion:

re: PDC vs hec - Neither player did enough to get the game done. Only a very broad time was given (a full day) and then neither player found each other. The decision of a coinflip stays.
