ADV Cup Round 6
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.

Well, if you did not crit me before in the first match, I do not think you could have it.
In the second one only a min roll sealed my fate too, and in the third one was lucky for double protect.
Anyway, it's always a pleasure playing you in adv, since you are one of the best.
Thanks for matches.
Won 2-1, ggs

Looks like the the master and the apprentice have to fight now! Lets do it Asta-senpai

mael and I were scheduled to play today, but the game didn't happen
here is the extent of our scheduling: was waiting on smogtours/main at the vm's time, and did so for 45 mins

i dont mind playing ofc, but idk when it's gonna happen now, since we already had trouble to find a time last week, so im just informing the host here
lost to the greatest adver all of time and my mentor in 2.

I think i played good, especially in the first matche, where his experience bring me down.
In the second one was a bit unlucky, but cannot tell i could win it w/o series.

In general, i had fun a lot playing ADV. Wanna thanks Asta for inspiring and giving reasons to start learning this tier.


Thanks Boss!

it looks the Smogon Classic ended for me and once again get lucked in few cup where i could do much more points. Do not wanna complain about it, bc this is game is insane and especially this kind of tournament.

Good Luck to everyone, especially my Italian Friends and Asta. Hope you boys can go so far.
