The Draft League subforum's inaugural Summer Seasonal is here! Being the second Type A tour and the first double elimination tour in the circuit, it'll provide a multitude of points towards this year's Draft League Circuit. The tour will be hosted by Nyx and Theia and take place in the [Gen 9] Tera Preview Paldea Dex Draft tier on Pokémon Showdown!

Please note that during the odd numbered bracket rounds after round 2 (so rounds 3, 5, 7 etc.), only the losers bracket will play. This is to ensure that both brackets reach finals at the same time.
The following spoilers will cover the rules for the tour:
  • You have up to 90 points with which to draft 8 Pokémon. Costs are listed on your pool’s tab on the drafting spreadsheet.
  • 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.
  • Once the draft is over, you must declare one Tera Captain. This is the only Pokémon on your draft that may Terastallize.
  • The following complex bans are in place:
    - No Pokémon may use the move Last Respects
    - No Pokémon may use the move Shed Tail.
    - No Pokémon may hold the item Leppa Berry
  • The following Pokémon may not be Tera-Captains:

  • If a Pokémon that is available in SV is untiered, please ask a host.
  • Smogon’s Species Clause applies to your draft.
  • All games must be played in the [Gen 9] Tera Preview Paldea Dex Draft tier on smogtours.psim.us or psim.us.
  • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
  • SV 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.
  • Any items unreleased in SV 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, and an extension has not been requested, 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.

Please note that all extension requests and activity claims must be posted to the thread, and that all of these will be judged on a case by case basis.

My opponent gave me the win
Translation :
-"Hi, we are paired for the smogon seasonal, do you have particular availabilities?"
-"Yes, my availabilities : I give you the win"
-"Oh, I'm fine with that x)"
-"Yeah, I've joined the tour but I am stopping competitive pokemon and I don't want to build for a draft league"
-"There is no reason to force yourself over a game, that's fair, have a good evening then"
