Cohosted with Aaronboyer - Inspiration Taken from The Smogon Classic
Welcome to the first ever ZU Classic. The first iteration of this tournament celebrates ZU's history throughout the years. Players will compete in separate tournaments for the ADV, DPP, BW, and ORAS generations, culminating in a finals where players will have to put their ZU Old Gens knowledge to the test to have a chance to win.
The format consists of four separate tournaments: The ADV Cup, The DPP Cup, The BW Cup, and The ORAS Cup. Each tournament is single elimination, best of three. Depending on your performance in a Cup, you will be awarded points. The point system is the same as the one used in the Smogon Classic. When all the Cups have been finished, the eight players with the most points will advance to the playoffs. There they will battle in a best of three series until there is one undisputed ZU Classic champion.
