BATTLE STADIUM SINGLES MASTERS IV
Welcome to the last standard tournament of the 2022 circuit! Unlike the other tournaments, this one forces players to stick to one team for each round, making information gathering an integral part of play.

Specific Rules
  • This is a standard SwSh Battle Stadium Singles Tournament.
  • The tournament will be Best of Three, Double Elimination. Because of the unique nature of this tour format, Best of Five will NOT occur starting at losers finals.
  • Players may not change their teams during the set.
  • To prevent cheating, players are required to open all 3 games with the same team prior to playing their first game.
  • Players are allowed to switch teams when they move on to the next round, the teamlock only applies to the Best of Three in the current round.
  • 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 the 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, Series 13 format
  • All Pokémon will be set to Level 50 automatically.
  • Players pick 3 of their 6 Pokemon at team preview.
  • Gigantamax: Any Pokemon with a Gigantamax may be used in the tournament
  • 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.


Round 2 ends Sunday, September 25th, 11:59PM EDT (GMT-4)
Extensions will be granted liberally if needed due to the late round post time.

Just making a public note that my opponent has their profile privated and I’m unaware of any other way to contact them, so I’m at their mercy to actually initiate an attempt to schedule our set.
