The Draft League Winter Seasonal is part of the 2024 Draft League Circuit and will provide points toward this year's Draft League Championship. This tournament is a Type A tournament and will be hosted by Theia and olivia7. This tournament will take place in the [Gen 9] Tera Preview Draft tier on Pokémon Showdown! and battles will take place in a swiss style bracket.

The following spoilers will cover the rules for the tournament.
  • 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 two Tera Captains totalling equal to or less than 25 points. These are the only Pokémon on your draft that may terastalise.
  • The following complex ban is in place:
    - No Pokémon may use the move Last Respects
  • The following Pokémon may not be Tera-Captains:

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.

The deadline for all extension requests is Thursday, 8th February, at 23:59, GMT-5. Any requests submitted after this deadline will not be considered.

REPLAYS ARE MANDATORY. POST THEM AS REPLIES TO THIS POST. All tournaments require competitors to submit the Pokepaste used for each battle to Theia via Smogon Forums or Discord DM (Discord ID: neomeris). These teams will be uploaded for use in the Draft Factory tier (not to be uploaded until after the tournament concludes). Failure to send each team you make and battle with may impact your ability to compete in future tournaments.
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:
