Welcome to the fifth Battle Spot Singles Classic Tournament! Dust off your Z Crystals, Mega Stones, and gems and get ready for some old gens action! Players will be facing each other in three BSS-based formats between GBU Singles, ORAS BSS, and USUM BSS, in the form of a best-of-three. This tournament will award Circuit Points that goes towards the 2022 Invitational at the end of the year that awards a ribbon on the forums.

Specific Rules
  • The tournament will be Best of Three of USUM BSS, ORAS BSS, GBU Singles. The tournament is Double Elimination.
  • Both players must agree on the format for the first game. If an agreement is not met, the first format will be USUM BSS. The loser of the first game gets to pick the format for the second game. You cannot play the same generation multiple times!
  • Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown/SmogTours
  • Replays must be saved and POSTED. Matches without a replay will not count as completed. If you don't want to risk forgetting to save replays play on Smogtours as it's automatic there.
  • 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.
Sample Teams:

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.

Round 6 ends Sunday, July 31, 11:59 PM EDT (GMT-4)!

Activity Calls:

lancert vs cant say - lancert failed to make proper scheduling attempts and missed the only scheduled time. No extension can be granted as the match was not rescheduled to a firm time after deadline prior to requesting an extension. In the future, please respond to scheduling attempts on Smogon or in Discord PMs instead of just in a server general chat to leave a better notification trail.

Next round up soon!
