ADV Cup Round 5
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.
This is just a small snippet of the full rules, which one can find here!


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 Smogtours server. The Main PS! server is 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..

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 are only allowed if there was a True Disconnection.

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.

tjdaas you gave us (me and edens embrace) extension till today, and he requested aw on monday I think in the r4 threath. I have seen my opponent online just a moment ago so I asked him to play now cause today is the end of the dead line and I wasn't able to play on tuesday. I hope we can play today, otherwise I will request and activity win since I was more active whilst he was avoiding me all the time on the time we were suposed to get this done.
Edit: I am waiting for him on right now as I told him in his profile.
Edit 2:
And I cannot wait for him forever since I have to be in school in 1hour and 40 minutes so I will gladly take the Activity Win cause he was so inconsiderate about getting the series done while I just wanted to get them done. And I am very frustrated cause he was even asking for Activity Win on Monday, like what a joke from him

Eden's embrace asked fairly early in the round for an extension due to him flying on the weekend and his last round game was also extended. His opponent agreed with it, but didn't seem to comprehend that eden couldn't play during the weekend and tried to schedule for Saturday (before posting an activity request). This request was denied and eden was already trying to schedule for a time during the extension range. Egalvanc said he could play on Monday, but never told eden when he could play and what his timezone is. He did tell eden that he couldn't play on Tuesday and the weekend. After eden asking the same question twice, his opponent said he could play 22pm +1 on Monday. Eden has showed me the proof that he was online at that time (which was 2-3am his time), but Egalvanc was nowhere to be seen and posted the day after that he was in class. He then tried to schedule for a time on Tuesday, which was first impossible for him but eden had made other plans. Today, Egalvanc is again using the "play now" strategy in order to get his opponent to play, which is of course not the best way to schedule.

With all of this it seems like eden's embrace has been trying to schedule with his opponent in a correct way, but his opponent has been scheduling fairly badly and constantly changing his mind so that the game didn't happen. I have also talk to a TD and they agreed with this decision. Therefore, eden's embrace gets the win and needs to play Ojama!

For the future, Egalvanc please read this guide on scheduling or watch this video of teal6, so that you do not get the act loss again.
I was more active than him, and I offered him a clearly wide variety of time to play, just beacuse he is older in this forum he is getting the activity win, this is what it is, If I am in class I am not able to play and I showed more interest than him to play, and now I am supose to read the guide of schedule and that video, which I have already seen? Uhm, well I see. Nothing else to say, I am laughing hard at this xDD. This wasn't fair.
You can be on 24/7, but if you don't show up at a scheduled time, you lose the right to call activity. If you gave times you were free to play and arranged properly rather than said 'play now', you would have had the game played (assuming you showed up).

Don't blame it on him being old (eden's embrace is old asf though) or any other made up reason, blame it on your inability to properly schedule.
