CHINESE NEW YEAR CELEBRATION FESTIVAL

The 12th of February will be the beginning of the Chinese New Year, and a new page of the cultural Chinese book. Why not recognize it with a big event involving some of the most famous rooms in our beloved Pokemon Showdown!?

The main objective is to gather points from all around PS’s rooms to climb up the leaderboard and be first place at the end of the event, winning an amazing prize from our selection of prizes! Every room that participates will host one or more events related to the Chinese New Year, and the points will be gathered in a huge final leaderboard.

Every room will host a different kind of event, at different times, related to the contents the room offers. For further information, you can take a look at the table below or ask each respective room for information on their event. You can see where and when these events will take place below.

Period: from 8th to 21st February
Prize for the 1st classified: one of the following: a custom avatar, a color change, the possibility to gain a disabled name of your choice and a real flaming dragon in flesh and bones!!!*

*the dragon will be avaiable untill stocks are exhausted**
**just kidding we won't give you any flaming dragons in flesh and bones***
***they may not exist


SCHEDULE: Note that all timestamps are in GMT-4 (Pokémon Showdown Time +1).


POINTS:
Each room will give a maximum of 48 points in total, except the events that include submissions. You can check each room to know how will they distribute their points.

Good Luck! 我祝你好运气!




Note that, if you need anything, you can contact Arya, Megagr, snorkledove and bobochan

Chinese New Year is a culturally insensitive term. Many nationalities celebrate Lunar New Year and call their celebrations many different things. After all, it's not Chinese New Year in Vietnam. In 2021 please take this opportunity to learn and grow from it. And also change the name.
As a viet person I can 100 % agree on that. irl most viet people I know take it as an offense if you call it differently. I personally don‘t care but thats maybe because I have been raised by the german standards...

It's a Chinese New Year Festival, that means we want to celebrate the Chinese festivity, not the Lunar New Year and the other amazing cultural festivities of other countries. The main focus of our event is, indeed, China because we are collaborating with the Chinese room and it's one of the most popular festivity in the world. Your comments are really apreciated and we will probably make it more inclusive next time! Thank you!

Here we are at the end of this incredible and exciting ride. We had a lot of fun organising it and we sincerely hope so had you partaking in it. Before officially announcing the winner, a bit of thanks. First we want to say a big THANKS to all the rooms involved in it, if the event went well it's thanks to you, staff and collaborators who helped us by dealing with everything with professionalism, availability and a lot of enthusiasm, thank you with our heart! Then, we want to say thanks to all the users who participated in the event, without you the event wouldn't be possible in the first place. Finally, a big thanks to all the admin group bobochan, snorkledove and in particular to Arya who spent a lot of time and energy organising and dealing with the smogon part too, thank you as well!

Now, we can finally announce the winner of this event! Congrats to Kokusei for winning the event with 118 points! Another grats to the runner-up BobbyZchoo, who had an epic neck and neck fight for the first place.

Thank you for participating and see you next time!
