Welcome to the annual Farceus DPP Ubers tournament! This tournament is part of the 2022 Ubers Circuit as a Type C tournament.

Tournament Rules:
  • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here, or below.
  • This is a standard DPP Ubers tournament with Arceus allowed. It is restricted to a maximum of 100 EVs in any stat.
  • Best of three, single elimination.
  • Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown!
  • Do not make baseless activity posts, get in contact with your opponent and report missed times / scheduling issues only.
  • All the usual Smogon rules regarding activity, timer, disconnection, and ghosting rules apply.
  • Replays are required.
  • Matches should be played in [Gen 4] Anything Goes; you can use the input /challenge gen4anythinggoes @@@ Species Clause, Sleep Clause Mod, OHKO Clause, Evasion Moves Clause to add clauses.

/challenge gen4anythinggoes @@@ Species Clause, Sleep Clause Mod, OHKO Clause, Evasion Moves Clause
Note: The command /challenge gen4ubers @@@ +Arceus can also be used, but this doesn't implement Farceus EV restrictions.

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: The matches must be played on either the Smogtours server or the Main PS! server if both parties agree to that. Other servers are not sanctioned by the host(s) and playing in them might result in your game not counting. Protect yourself from that by playing on Smogtours.


On scouting opponents: Going through your opponent's 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

Timer Clause: As for taking long between moves, if your opponent asks you to hurry up, please oblige. If you are doing a damage calc for a key turn that is one thing, but prolonging every move is suspicious and annoying. Don't do it. Furthermore, Battle Timeout is a rule for a reason. If you run out of time, you lose, simple as that. It does not matter what your opponent says. Do not battle if you think you will have to leave mid battle, and instead reschedule for a better time.

Disconnections: Finally, in the case of a disconnect, the decision is in the hands of the player who did not disconnect. The options are: redo the battle move for move, redo the battle with the same teams but different moves, or redo the battle with completely different teams. If the battle was without a doubt over, they may also take the win. Any suspicion that a disconnect was committed on purpose to redo a match may be appealed to me, and if I feel this happened there will be severe consequences, don't do it.


Use VMs to schedule with your opponent to make it easier for me to track activity calls when needed, and use this guide to ensure you don't lose via activity or coinflip. If you use other methods to contact your opponent outside of VMs, then post in this thread confirming you're in contact with your opponent; otherwise, it's not necessary. Extensions for those with time conflicts will only be given when proof is provided of scheduling with their opponent in the beginning of the round, so do not schedule last minute expecting to be compensated in case of timezone conflicts or be given an activity win over your opponent.

I know that was a lot to read, but it is all necessary for me to have posted here so everyone can see it in the case of a dispute. I don't want any confusion or any problems.

won in 3 vs hyw teams and...bp


i had hoped for a more honorable series in finals, but it is what it is. i guess i can't fault my opponent for using what's legal.

a special shoutout to Seldanna for every time i sent you one of my teams and you were like "yea that looks fine."

oh, also. i used ekiller a total of 3 games out of 12 this tournament. i lost to it exactly once, because it haxed my fightceus in g1 of this finals series. this pokemon is not a) overcentralizing b) broken c) mandatory d) uncompetitive, and if you think so, i'd encourage you to think harder. that's all.
