Welcome to the Draft League forum's ORAS Cup signups! This thread will contain the battle pool assignments for pools 1-32. The staff for this thread are GGTC, Theia, RoiDadadou, and abriel. Please contact them before reaching out to other tournament staff members.

Below are the rules for the tournament. Please be mindful of the Activity Wins Rules section, as Battle Pools will not be granted extensions.

  • You have up to 90 points with which to draft 8 Pokémon. Costs are listed on your pool’s tab on the drafting spreadsheet.
  • You may only draft 1 Mega Evolution and the non-Mega variants of Pokémon may not Mega Evolve.
  • If a Pokémon is picked by someone else, you may not pick it.
  • For the first round, there is a 12 hour timer. After the first round ends, there will be a continuous 6 hour timer within which you must pick, or you will be skipped, and will be required to make-up your pick when you are next online. All timers are off between 10pm-7am local time (check your pools pinned message for local time).
  • Your timer will halve every time you are skipped. It is recommended to leave picks (with backups) with your pool moderator to avoid this.
  • The following complex bans are in place:
    - Blaziken may not have the ability Speed Boost.
    - Greninja may not have the ability Protean.
    - No Pokémon may hold the item Soul Dew.
  • The following Pokémon have access to all of their forms (although you may only bring up to 1 to each battle):
    - Pikachu
    - Wormadam
    - Basculin
    - Meowstic
    - Pumpkaboo
    - Gourgeist
  • Smogon’s Species Clause applies to your draft.
  • All games must be played in the [Gen 6] Draft tier on smogtours.psim.us or psim.us.
  • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
  • ORAS cartridge win conditions are in place; there are no ties.
  • Each set is a best-of-one set.
  • The following clauses apply:
  • - Species Clause: A player cannot have two Pokémon with the same National Pokédex number on a team.
  • - Sleep Clause: If a player has already put a Pokémon on their opponent's side to sleep and it is still sleeping, another one can't be put to sleep.
    - Evasion Clause: A Pokémon may not hold an item, use a move or possess an ability that can increase their evasion stat
    - OHKO Clause: A Pokémon may not have the moves Fissure, Guillotine, Horn Drill, or Sheer Cold in its moveset.
    - Moody Clause: A team cannot have a Pokémon with the ability Moody.
    - Endless Battle Clause: Players cannot intentionally prevent an opponent from being able to end the game without forfeiting.
    - Baton Pass Clause: A Pokémon may not have Baton Pass in its moveset.
    - Swagger Clause: A Pokémon may not have Swagger in its moveset.
  • Any items unreleased in ORAS are banned.
  • Replays must be posted to the pool/round thread, please mention the result, your opponent's name and your pool number.
  • Rankings within pools may not be 100% accurate as the spreadsheet does not track head-to-head results. Players are ranked based upon: most wins, head-to-head, battle differential.
About Activity Decisions

Activity Decisions / Coin Flips
: In the event that there is an uncompleted match at the deadline, it will be coin flipped unless one or both of the players involved in the match specifically request an activity win and explain sufficiently why they deserve to win over their opponent. Attempting to schedule a battle is required in order to receive the win by activity. To make it clear that you are requesting an activity win when you post, you must open your post with "Activity Win Request" in bold.

For example, if you believe your opponent is making an unfair request and that they don't deserve the activity win over you, you can either make your own request or quote their post and explain why they don't deserve it. You should try to make your activity win request posts at least 24 hours before the deadline to give your opponent a reasonable opportunity to contest it with their own activity win request.

Scheduling Advice:
  • Prioritize scheduling with your opponent. The chance of you advancing in the tournament by attempting to avoid your opponent is nonexistent compared to playing your matches.
  • Do your best to make time for your matches, Activity Win requests may be rejected if the hosts believe that a valid attempt to play did not occur, such as if you only offer limited times to play.

The tier does not innately catch a handful of complex bans, which must be adhered to in play:
- Blaziken may not have the ability Speed Boost.
- Greninja may not have the ability Protean.

Here's the challenge command that includes all the teambuilder bans to make it easier for validation. Just paste it in the PMs of your opponent on Smogtours:
/challenge gen6draft@@@ -Blaziken+Speed Boost, -Blaziken+Blazikenite, -Greninja+Protean, -Gengar+Gengarite, -Alakazam+Alakazite, -Kangaskhan+Kangaskhanite, -Latias+Latiasite, -Latios+Latiosite, -Metagross+Metagrossite, -Salamence+Salamencite, -Lucario+Lucarionite, -Baton Pass

All games must be complete by 11:59PM GMT-0 on Sunday, 26 March 2023. No extensions will be granted for battle pool games. Incomplete games will be resolved by the hosts (Lady Salamence and SlickPanther) following the Activity Win Rules above.

REPLAYS ARE MANDATORY. Please post the name of your opponent with it as well as the end score.


For example: https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen6draft-1806537886-4kh0psde9rs0m9jk0ir7ekv753plw5zpw Lady Salamence VS SlickPanther (victory to SlickPanther 6-0)

This thread and all other ORAS Cup threads should be considered the final ruling in case of discrepancy between threads, Discord announcements, and Google spreadsheets. Contact a host if you have any questions or spot an error. We are human, after all.
