2019 INVITATIONAL

Welcome to the final BSS tournament of the 2019 circuit, where the champion will be crowned with a ribbon
on their profile. The top 12 performing players in this year's circuit will be battling it out to win it all.

Specific Rules
  • This is a Standard USUM Battle Spot Singles Tournament.
  • The tournament will be Best of Five, Single Elimination.
  • Matches MUST be played on the Smogtours server (http://smogtours.psim.us/)
  • Replays must be saved and POSTED. Matches without a replay will not count as completed.
  • In an event of a timeout, the player who times out will lose that game unless the opponent grants a rematch. This holds true even for a disconnect, due to being unable to know which three Pokemon have been selected at team preview. Consequently, players do not need to send in their teams to a TD.
  • Activity calls and coinflips will be done by myself and the pick command on Pokemon Showdown respectively.
Standard Rules
  • Matches will be played in the Singles format
  • Pokemon above level 50 will be brought down to level 50. Pokemon below level 50 stay as is.
  • Players pick 3 of their 6 Pokemon at team preview.
  • 3DS-born Clause: A Pokemon cannot have a set that can only be obtained from before gen 6. (i.e. no past-gen exclusive move tutors/TMs/events)
  • Species Clause: No two Pokemon in the same team can have the same National Pokedex number.
  • Item Clause: No two Pokemon in the same team can hold the same item.

Simulator Glitches: Any battle mechanics not properly implemented in the simulator used for a tournament battle are fair game, unless explicitly banned by that tournament's rules. Illegal movesets that are not restricted by the simulator fall into this category as well. However, this does not include faulty tier scripts; for example, if there was a bug in the BW OU tier script that allowed you to use Drizzle and Swift Swim on the same team, taking advantage of this would result in disqualification in that battle. If a game breaking glitch is discovered, we will make a blanket tournament ban on that glitch via an announcement in the Tournaments forum until it is fixed.

Ghosting: The player in a tournament battle should be the one making their own decisions. Do not tell a player what move to make in a tournament battle (i.e. do not "ghost" them), and do not make your moves based on another person's suggestions. If we are made aware that someone playing a tournament battle is making some of their moves based mainly on the suggestions of someone else, punishments may be handed out to both parties involved.

Identity: Pretending to be another player in relation to a tournament battle is strictly prohibited. Do not try to impersonate or play as another player. This applies to the use of alts as well. Any player who breaks this will be disqualified and may be subject to further punishment.

Rule Breaking: If a player breaks a rule during a battle, they are disqualified from that particular battle. If it was a single battle in a series, they will still have the opportunity to play the rest of the series.

Draws: If a battle ends in a draw in an elimination tournament or another tournament format that is unable to handle draws, there should be a rematch between the players with the option for both players to change teams.

Forfeiting: A player may forfeit their battle during or after the battle, as long as the result has not been confirmed by the host. If a player forfeits before a battle commences in the first round of a tournament, they are eligible for substitution if appropriate. We highly recommend that you do not forfeit your tournament battles just because you got lucky, but we do not enforce this.

Host / Tournament Director Decisions: The host may make a judgment call on the outcome of a battle with a disputed result, even if one player has broken the rules. If you believe the host has made an unjust decision, you may inform the Tournament Director responsible for the tournament of the situation and request that they make a final call on it.

Sportsmanship: If a player displays exceedingly poor sportsmanship before, during, or after a tournament battle, they may be disqualified or otherwise punished.

Before the tournament starts, however, there are three people that tied for the 12th seed in the tournament, and as such a tiebreaker will be held to pick the final seed.


Tiebreakers will be a best of three instead of a best of five. Due to the time constraints, game differential will also be considered in the event all three players end with a 1-1 record. As mentioned in the first post, all matches are to be played on the Smogtours server.

Deadline for the tiebreaker is Sunday October 13, 11:59PM EST.

Matches will be sunday 2pm EST. We have agreed to masters format: BO3 teamlock.
This isn't really going to work since you can't realistically open more than one game at a time on Smogtours due to auto-timer. You won't be able to open and play all 3 games at the same time without a time-out

EDIT: just making sure you were aware of the mechanics of Smogtours and that this would have to be on an honor system rather than actually being enforceable
