Ever been interested in CAP? Here's a great way to learn more about it! Come to compete and watch battles featuring our 24 custom creations. The CAP metagame consists of OU-legal Pokemon plus all CAP Pokemon. Find our forum here to join the creation process. Join our Pokemon Showdown room here to discuss the metagame and teambuilding with our community.

Tournament Rules:
  • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
  • This is a standard USUM CAP tournament.
  • Best of three, single elimination.
  • Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown!. Smogtours server works fine too.
  • You don't necessarily have to post replays here, but they somehow have to get to me. PM me your replays through Smogon or Discord or post them in the thread and I will like the post to verify your victory.
  • Do not make baseless activity posts, get in contact with your opponent and report missed times / scheduling issues only.
  • Standard clauses apply.
  • All the usual Smogon rules regarding activity, timer, disconnection, and ghosting rules apply.
  • The banlist is standard OU, with CAP Pokemon allowed. You may use any amount of CAPs, from zero to six.
Standard Rules and Clauses:
  • Species Clause: A player cannot have two Pokemon with the same PokeDex number on his team.
  • Evasion Clause: The moves Double Team and Minimize are banned. (No other evasion boosting things are banned).
  • OHKO Clause: The moves Horn Drill, Guillotine, Sheer Cold, and Fissure are banned.
  • Endless Battle Clause: Anything capable of intentionally creating an endless battle is banned.
  • Moody Clause
  • Sleep Clause

Just want to say thanks to everyone! I had a lot of fun and really learned a lot in this tournament. As a newcomer to CAP, it was absolutely crazy to find myself in the semifinals. Really good battles with everyone and good luck to Marjane and Reach/RWW in finals!
On another note, this tournament has also shown me that I still have a lot to learn. So if anyone has any tips or is feeling like doing some mentorship, I would love that. I think my teambuilding skills are not bad, but as a battler I have a long way to go. Have a great tournament everyone!
